"Watch These Terrible People Yapping At Each Other."

A Wonkette headline that I tried to read out loud and said: "Watch These Terrible People Lapping At Each Other." Ah, remember the original Wonkette? Everything was sexy somehow. Now... I don't read it enough to know what the point is, other than to make everything sound funny, though in this case the headline has nothing to do with what is supposed to be so hilarious: Al Sharpton is really skinny now.

Rush Limbaugh is skinny now too.
He looks like this:



Ironically, Al Franken is quite fat.

Isn't it sweet that Rush posed in front of a picture of his kitty cat's bowl? Does Al Franken have a cat? Google image search suggests no:

Was Rush's kitty lapping at its Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 gal., 128 fl. oz.?

VW: remiact. Al Franken has been consuming mass quantities lately.

Bob said...

Rush looks as if he had a facelift at some point, also.

word verification: nards. I'm not joking.

Jeremy said...

What makes you think Al Franken is fat?

Randy said...

Jeremy: Maybe it was seeing a picture like this one.

Jeremy said...

Randy, That picture isn't representative of him being "fat." I also have no idea when it was even taken.

Do YOU?

What is it with you idiots...you appear to despise anybody who doesn't agree with your politics.

And by the way...do you really believe the fat leader of the GOP will remain at the weight he touts today?

Hoosier Daddy said...

Fat or skinny, Franken is still a moron.

LOL. This was just too funny to pass up.

That Punkin sure is one good-looking cat!

I bet if Al Franken had a maid, he would never send them out to a Denny's in West Palm with a cigar box full of cash to have it filled up with Oxycontin.

Was in Vegas for 5 days, did you guys miss me?

Jeremy, Here's another one, published 6/30/2009

You were gone?

ricpic said...

Wow, Rush looks great! Wish I could take a mere 10 lbs off and keep them off. Looks like he's taken 80 lbs off. He'll probably regain a good deal of weight but what an achievement so far.

SteveR said...

Randy, which chin are you calling fat?

AJ Lynch said...

If I had a maid, I'd send them to Denny's to bring me back a Grand Slam breakfast.

In fairness to the duly elected clown from Minnesota, I wouldn't call him 'fat'. I'm watching a couple walking down the sidewalk now who are probably a biscuit short of half a ton combined so looking at Franken, no, I don' think he's fat.

A moron yes.

AJ Lynch said...

Garage:

No not really. :)

Well mine would be wearing a French maid outfit with visible garters and 4 inch heels and I wouldn't be sending her anywhere.

That's what Pablo the pool boy is for.

"I bet if Al Franken had a maid, he would never send them out to a Denny's in West Palm with a cigar box full of cash to have it filled up with Oxycontin."

Yeah because as a 1970s and early 80s SNL allum he never snorted any coke or popped any pills. Considering his former line of work, I dare say Frankin has popped a lot more pills than Limbaugh ever dreamed of.

Wonkette was only interesting for like a week back in 2004 when Anne Marie Cox was hooking on Capitol Hill. After that, it was all down hill from there.

C'mon man!

Hoosier Daddy: There's a difference between "fat" and "obese."

Hoosier Daddy said...

Agreed. Yes Franken can probably afford to drop 20lbs as could probably 75% of the country but I still don't consider the guy fat. Just my opinion.

AllenS said...

Somewhere, someone, maybe more than one place, and maybe more than one person, is saying: "Man, that was a long 5 days."

Just kidding, garage.

WV: nutele

Wouldn't you know it.

Randy said...

Hoosier Daddy: Oh, neither do I. I was just providing pics that reinforce the impression that he's fat. There are others out there that don't give that impression.

(IOW, it was just an exercise in bear-baiting ;-)

bearbee said...

Ironically, Al Franken is quite fat.

Other than being part of the usual senatorial dead weight, Franken appears in the Limbaugh weight range.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Interestingly enough Rush eschews exercise as a method to losing weight and I'm rather surprised he shed as much tonnage by diet alone.

wv coodizes = What Obama thinks you get from shaking hands with wee weeed Republicans.

William said...

On their radio shows, both Franken and Limbaugh were inclined to go over the top--Limbaugh in a funny, inventive way, Franken with more harshness and less humor. It is instructive to note that although the Democrats like to portray Limbaugh as the voice of the Republican Party, they actually elected their drivelmeister to the Senate. Franken is an example of how Democrats fail upward......I like Limbaugh infinitely better than Franken. I am therefore pained to report that within the next five years Franken will be still be chunky and Rush will again be fat.

Limbaugh has a cat.

You mean Methadras is wrong about something? (Else, I guess I should add) :)

Joan said...

MM: Methadras is way wrong. I have cats. In fact, my cat acquisition coincided perfectly with my conversion to conservatism. But Methadras is wrong simply because pet ownership has nothing to do with politics.

Franken isn't fat but he does look a bit puffy. Rush looks terrific, but even he jokes about his yo-yo dieting.

Rush looks like he had bariatric surgery.

My little treatise on cat = liberal vs. dog = conservative was just an abstract from my mind on my observations of who generally tends to be a cat owner and their politics vs. who is a dog owner and their politics. It was a generality that I've observed over time, but obviously there is much overlap. It was never meant to be a right or wrong thing, but that's cool. At least it's dovetailed into this discussion quite nicely.

I never knew Limbaugh was a cat owner. Actually, I hadn't realized he had any pets at all. But I'm glad he's lost weight, but he looks kinda weird.

MadisonMan said...

BTW, to complete that ensemble, Rush really needs a nice wide white belt.

Joe said...

I don't like Al Franken at all, but I wouldn't say he's fat. He's what happens to everyone in middle-age; he's chunky. Probably overweight by the perverse BMI standard, but statistically will live longer as a result.

(By contrast, Limbaugh's yo-yo extreme dieting will probably kill him early. In other words, Limbaugh will probably kick the bucket in his 70s while Franken lives to his 80s or 90s.)

Alex said...

Interesting that people have different definitions of what "fat" means. F.e., I know Titus would think anything other then the 7% you see on fitness models is "fat", for others being close to the size of a beached-whale... Fascinating what one learns on Althouse!

VW: bewings - be like the Ewings.

Alex said...

Joe - Rush's problem is he could never resist having dinner every night at Ruth's Chris steakhouse. Usually a 1000 calorie+ meal. He's simply a glutton who sometimes loses the weight in one-last-gasp of discipline before he finally loses himself to his insatiable appetite!

No, I'm down a hard $400. Friggin asian dealers, they ate me up, as always. Not sure why the hell that is either. Had a great time though, we stayed at the Mandalay this time. Awesome hotel.

That's the designed outcome, practiced, honed, proven. You always lose eventually.

Like socialism.

No doubt you're scrutable to them.

If I buy an animal that is not a fish or ant, it will be a cat.

Rush's girlfriend set him up with his current weight loss program. He said the name of it, but I can't remember what it was. He looks good.

Jeremy said...

The secret to shrinkage, Limbaugh said, is Quick Weight Loss Centers, a Florida-based company that combines a low-calorie diet, office visits and supplements. The supplements include protein boosters, carbohydrate blockers and appetite suppressants.

SPEED.

No way. Titus has 7% body fat and the physique of a Greek god - or so he tells us.

My sympathies garage. I hate friggin asian dealers too. Bastards should stick with laundromats rather then taking your hard earned money.

After all taking your hard earned money is Obama's job.
