Video: Secular saint endorses “rock star”!

posted at 2:45 pm on February 25, 2007 by Allahpundit

“The Goracle” will get his Oscar tonight, thereby completing his metamorphosis from leaden wonk into Hollywood celebrity. That’s why they love him — he’s one of them now, but with the political credibility they crave and, for the most part, lack. Although with Franken now in the race in Minnesota, the cross-pollination between Hollywood and Washington is clearly increasing. The question is how dumb things can get.

Answer: this dumb.

The dopey WaPo piece about Gore being on a first-name basis with Ludacris does contain a nugget of actual news. There’d been some question about whether he’d be allowed onstage tonight if his movie won, since he’s not one of the producers. Unless one of the seat-warmers tries to bodyblock him, he will be:

“AIT,” as Team Gore calls it, is also the hot pick tonight for Best Documentary, and if its director, Davis Guggenheim, wins an Oscar, he plans to bring Gore along with him to the stage to accept the golden statuette and perhaps say a few words about . . . interstitial glacial melting? (More likely, Gore will deliver a favorite line about “political will being a renewable resource.”)

Here’s Carter chatting with Stephanopoulos this morning about his eventual successor as King Humanitarian and that troublesome sentence from his book that seems to endorse Palestinian violence. George S. neglected to ask him to define “terrorism;” Carter’s answer might have surprised him.

That WaPo story is an embarrassment. They’ve morphed into Tiger Beat.

Let’s just call it what it is: Hollington.

Clark Grissom could run for President!

Jimmy Carter lying through his teeth reminds me of the 20% interest rates and inflation when that moron was President.

He is a anti-Semite and a commie despite his protestations to the contrary with Stephanopoulos.

I can forgive Jimmy in what he wrote as it was only one sentence. I can not forgive him for the damage he did to this country during his presidency or what he has done since.

I think Jimmy is trying to catch up to Clinton. It’s not enough for Carter to be the worst president of the 20 century he’s going for the Clinton legacy. Disgraced, disbarred, impeached, and his party lost the White House when he left. We can’t impeach Carter any longer but he’s going for broke on the disgrace part. Maybe he should appear with his brother Billy.

When I used to see Jimmuh on TV, it reminded me of his miserable presidency…now, he elicits a much darker reaction. Where’s an anvil from ther sky when you need one? Somebody call the people at ACME!

The Holy Bible is very specific in the boundaries of God’s own land on this planet. God has only given permission for his chosen people to live on that land. That does not include the Palestinian squatters. I fear for this whole world the anvil you speak of and more, is coming soon.

Jimmah says, “Peek-a-boo, I see you”.

Jack Murhta’s “Depends” provider……… does he have a prescription? Is one needed?”

We must know!

PinkyBigglesworth on February 26, 2007 at 2:56 AM

That picture of him cracks me up! It needs to be the new standard Jimmah picture.

Put him in a hood and he’ll look EXACTLY like the evil Emperor of Star Wars.

interstitial glacial melting

Should that be intestinal glacial melting? I get that everytime I see his picture.
