Re: Obama is the Antichrist  


Oh Daily Show, never change.

And now a Supernatural AU of the Political/Punditry fandom has eaten my brain. )

And now, because there is a magnificent one brewing over the ocean, a mix of songs that I, for whatever reason, associate with thunderstorms:


Songs for lovers of thunder and the norms of storms. )
theme song: The Raven - Alan Parsons Project

Also, an insta!Rec: Souvenirs by [ profile] tearful_eye.

It's been around for a few weeks now, but for anyone who watches Life, is vaguely intrigued as to what this Life show lark is that everyone's talking about, or just in general enjoys a beautifully crafted, intense, rockin' vid, take a look. It's only a minute long.

And in non sequitur conclusion:

After reading all the brilliant pundits-meta over at the journals of [ profile] bessemerprocess and [ profile] sarken, I scribbled down some:

More Love Letter than Meta. )

It's the terror of knowing, what this world is about.  

A Pundits Fanmix


Jon Stewart. Stephen Colbert. Anderson Cooper. Keith Olbermann. Rachel Maddow.
Doing what they do best. Shenanigans, cleverness, tomfoolery, crusading, laughing, dancing and caring.

I want to wake up in a city, that never sleeps... )
theme song: New York, New York - Frank Sinatra

Punditry and Pictures make Peacemaking not Warmongering

And now, because that really got me into the swing of things, a Fake News picspam! Featuring most prominently, our favourite fake news pundits in their underwear. Yep. That's right.

Actually, it's a rag-tag bunch of misfits: We got Colbert, Clooney, Cooper, Carla Bruni, Banksy, Brando, Bellucci, Stewart, Downey Jr, Emanuels, Newman and more. )

Because these are a few of my favourite things people.
theme song: Dirty laundry - Bittersweet

<3 Anderson Cooper  
Just a couple of Anderson Cooper graphics/wallpapers + one celebrating the cuteness of Stephen Colbert and Anderson together:



'Excuse me Senator, I'm sorry for interrupting,' )

ETA: Drive-by rec, [ profile] karanguni has written a gorgeous piece of Rahm Emanuel mentoring Anderson Cooper, and it includes this on Prop 8:


When there's another vote in California and the courts and the people and the churches are all on fire over do-gay-people-get-to-get-married, Cooper calls, and Rahm wants to not pick up. So he picks up.

'Don't ask me for my opinion,' he says directly. 'I'm not going to give it to you. And where the fuck are you, Baghdad? Speak up, I can't hear shit.'

'I'm at a protest!'
Anderson shouts at him. There's a noise like someone's just shoved him into someone who's shoved a signboard into his face, and Rahm kind of wants to be there to beat people off. 'Word from the ground, Rahm. The people are angry! And if you guys keep waffling in Washington --'

'We're all for civil rights,' Rahm says, patiently even though he wants to break his pen in half and say something that may almost, almost be sorry. Cooper's so fucking alone in his apartment because of all these reasons, and somedays Rahm sends him boxes from Eli's without Cooper having to dedicate 59 of 60 Minutes to him, but cake is a very different thing from constitutional enabling.
