Monday Media Blogging

It is a little-known fact that Twilight Zone and Radar Love are not Golden Earring’s only good songs.  I would even say that they’re probably not even their best songs.  This week’s video isn’t necessarily one of their best songs, but it is undoubtedly their most twisted video.  If I had to describe it I’d say it’s kinda like Robert Palmer by way of Abel Ferrara.  Or vice versa.

Delusional Sarah Palin Is Delusional!

Sarah Palin explains that her party lost the 2008 presidential election because she wasn’t at the top of the ticket.  But hey, kudos to her for not playing the victim card.  Or, more accurately, for bragging about how she never plays the victim card.

Yes, Sarah “Blood Libel” Palin actually said that.

America Catches On

First everyone realized that the Republicans sucked and voted them out of power.  Then they discovered that Obama and the Democrats sucked and destroyed them in the 2010 midterms.  Now they’re remembering once again just how much the Republicans suck, but it’s not making them like Obama and the Democrats any better.  The sad truth is that both parties suck horribly right now.

A new Pew Research Center poll shows that about half of Americans think the debate over spending and deficits has been “generally rude and disrespectful.”

There’s even bipartisan agreement — 48 percent of Republicans and Democrats have that view, as well as 57 percent of independents. President Barack Obama signed legislation Friday to provide funding to keep the government open until April 8, the sixth such temporary extension in the 6-month-old fiscal year.

Pew surveyed 1,525 adults from March 8-14. The poll’s findings suggest the political losers so far have been Republicans, who rode a wave of voter irritation to win control of the House of Representatives last fall.

After the election, 35 percent said Republicans had a better approach to the deficit, expected to reach a record $1.65 trillion this year. This month, that number has plunged to 21 percent.

People don’t think Obama has better ideas, either — 20 percent found his approach better, down from November’s 24 percent. Total sample margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Unless there’s an intriguing third party candidate next year, I’m thinking turnout is going to be pretty damn low…
