The most compelling feature about Sarah Palin is the reaction she elicits from the left.WV: bogiss
Margaret Cho, ace reporter.
Leftists are so funny. They cannot accept that politicians on the right are popular and they insist that politicians on the right are stupid. Thus, the need to create a bogeyman. Karl Rove and Lee Atwater are two such bogeymen. These bogeymen are ill-intentioned, sometimes evil shamans who, for reasons no one knows, provide their ample intellects in the service of the dumb, unpopular politicians to fool voters into voting in a way that runs counter to the voters' interests.The fascinating thing with Palin is that she has no shaman attached to her (yet), so she is concomitantly dumb, brilliant, evil, conniving, and a boob all at once or at different times throughout the day, depending on the explanatory needs of the leftist grasping for an interpretation of current events.
I always thought she was brave, making fun of parents at 2 AM in a Key West bar.
Well that explains everything. A mother with the power to force her adult daughter to become famous and earn a huge fee for dancing in public as her punishment. Only a real monster would do that to her child, and lie about it too. And that monster made Bristol club halibut on TV too. Sometimes this grade C propaganda is really a lame joke.
I'll forgive her for her bitterness as it must truly suck to be a second rate version of Kathy Griffin. Although given that Griffin is a third rate comic herself, that would make Cho a sixth rate comedian.
Last I looked, none of the Palins had any Italian ancestry.
Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do DWTS so that 'America would fall in love with her again' Libtards. They really are this stupid.
What, is Cho a breeder of thoroughbred racing moose? Talented lady. (At least, I bet that's what all the moose say.)
In related news, Mary Mapes has a memo from an unimpeachable source that proves Palin is an Alien from Alpha Centauri. Andrew Sullivan is convinced Palin forced Bristol to get pregnant to harvest DNA for the creation of a herd of humans for her home planet to eat.
Guilty as charged!
No moose is that desperate. Only decapitation could persuade the moose to stay in her bed.For a few brief months when she first broke into the spotlight, Ms. Cho was funny. Not hilarious, but I would get a few good chuckles out of her show.Then she became repetitive. Then she became shrill. Then I stopped paying attention.This is just her latest ploy to get the attention back.
Funny I mistook Margaret Cho for a moose....
I wouldn't call Margaret Cho a comedian, exactly, as I can't recall her ever saying anything funny. She saw an slot for a diversity-hire Asian performer and went for it, relentlessly. She's the Korean Carlos Mencia.
A cross between the unfunny Kathy Griffen and the ugly mean Jeanne Garafolo. Even at that she's not up to either's incredibly low standard.
Guilt for what? Getting the attention she wanted?The caption under her picture at the link says that she got booted from DWTS even though she scored better than Palin.Well, duh!People are voting for *likable* people.
Are there any funny Asian comedians of either sex?For that matter, are there any funny Hispanic comedians of either sex either? (George Lopez is not funny).I wonder why? It can't be an oppressed minority thing. There are a ton of truly funny black comedians.
Althouse made an entry in the Conservatives 4 Palin website for her last night's post on episode three and about the strange accusations from her critics about child raising methods. It is a small world.
I think Henry Cho is funny. His parents are Korean but he grew up in Knoxville so I guess it depends on how you define your terms as to whether or not he's Asian.
That scene in the The Godfather, where the hotshot wakes up with a horse's head in his bed, was stolen from Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities.
Holy cow. Do people like Cho ever listen to themselves?She sounds unhinged.
@William:That scene in the The Godfather, where the hotshot wakes up with a horse's head in his bed, was stolen from Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities.I don't remember that in the book. I remember "Jacques" burning down the Evremonde house and killing the Marquis, and the mender of roads and Madame Defarge and whatnot, but I don't remember a horse head in that book. I've read it more than once, maybe I'm just too stupid, but I think you're confused. Got a cite for that?
Now I am scared I am going to wake up with Margaret Cho on the teevee.
Decapitated moose head? It could be worse. The moose could wake up next to a decapitated Cho head. Or even worse, a live Cho.
Now I am scared I am going to wake up with Margaret Cho on the teevee.Or, maybe her head in your bed.
Now I won't be able to sleep.
Cho wonders why she was kicked off the show?Send her that photo of herself. Oh-my-God she's gross.
No time to stay and bash my head against the wall, kids. Just thought I'd share some entertaining writing from PRAVDA (the real one, not FOX): Hockey Mum Sarah ex-Governess of Alaska is famous for her shrill shrieking style, displaying a pitifully shallow persona which one hopes is stage-managed to give the rest of the world a good chuckle at the Americans' ability and unique quality to make fun of themselves, a real-life female version of Homer Simpson-cum-Belching Barney at Mo's, giving us ever-more hilarious soundbites as she sets herself up as the dumbest woman on Earth.http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/30-11-2010/115998-spankin_sarah-0/
You sever a head, you can't decapitate a head.
Harsh Pencil - I personally find John Leguizamo to be hilarious. His early standup work was excellent. He's pretty much moved on to film, though.
Cho has mother issues -- almost her entire career is based on it.

She had a cleft-chinned perennial boyfriend called Brad who worked for a rival newspaper.. She was always beating him to stories about deathray-wielding Martians and jewel heists and stuff. Each story ended with Cho strutting determinedly away to her next earth-scattering scoop while beau Brad thought ballooned "What a gal..."Jesting aside, this Cho chick has a serious ink addiction going on, doesn't she? Imagine the interesting time she's going to have explaining to her grandchildren about that 2-D derringer tatted to her thigh. I suppose the dialog will go something like this --Kid: Nanna, how come you've got a gun on your leg? And all that stuff on your arms and chest?Granny Cho: Well, Nanna was a real git back in the day.

William wrote: That scene in the The Godfather, where the hotshot wakes up with a horse's head in his bed, was stolen from Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities.Huh?Oh, that must be from the re-write edition Dickens did for Playboy back in July 1963.
"""Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed..."" A horse's ass with a moose head. Now that's funny.
Alpha - It's no fair quoting from your own articles!And now, the weather.Snow is much heavier in Paris today.
I like her - I've laughed by butt off at some of her routines - I even had one favorited on Youtube for awhile and I'd replay it when I'd had a few glasses of wine. Having said that...Yes, Margaret, we all get you made chit chat with Bristol's dancing partner and Bristol. Fine.But really, you are 40ish years old with no kids much less teenagers, and are therefore pretending to be "friends" with the teenagers and protect them against their parents- who are your age.It makes you look like a creeper, ya know?Stop it.
Cho has some funny stuff in her act, but it is mixed in with too much unfunny personal stuff.
"Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed..."Some women can handle that sort of one-on-one competition; others, evidently, cannot.
Cho isn't funny. She's obnoxious. She's ugly.Another one of the purported edgy whatevers.I try to ignore her existence. Mostly, I am successful.I'm not happy about acknowledging it here.
Cho wasn't going to race the moose. She was going to put it out to stud. You do appreciate beauty, don't you?
How can you decapitate a moose head?
I have never heard of this woman. I have never watched Dancing with Stars. I am appalled that there are people on this blog who do. Bread and fucking circus.
What's scary is that people believe this stuff. "Someone told Margaret Cho this! It must be true." :)And @SteveR: I think Garafalo tries to look ugly for some reason. Or maybe ugly took over her looks. I don't know. But she was very cute at one time. (See Romy & Michele's HS Reunion)
Lighten up, you guys. The quote actually creates a fun visual.
Well of course Pravda hates Palin, for the same reason they hated Reagan. She's someone who would stand up to them (I know Soviets are not the same as Russians, but the point is still true).
I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do itHeard from a friend whoHeard it from a friend whoHeard it from another you'd been messin' around.Apologies in advance for infecting you with that earworm, but my wv is, and I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP:verse
"Clubbing halibut"Jeez Louise, I just LOVE that line. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it."Right between the eyes, Bristol!""Whack 'em!"I mean, you can go on and on, can't you? A whole new T-shirt/bumper sticker ready lexicon for smallish intellectual heads to explode on for years to come.I just adore Sarah Palin.
Love REO, MadisonMan. Oh, and I made another good pot of turkey soup thanks to your tips from way back. ;-)
AL reads Pravda? Margaret Cho is afraid she might accidentally sleep with a moose?These things. They don't surprise me at all.
I don't agree w/ Cho's politics. But, when you get past that, and when SHE gets off politics, Margaret Cho is as funny as Kathy Griffin. I love good female comedians, and Cho is one.
Margaret, no moose, decapitated or otherwise, would want to be in bed with you.
@Gabriel: It wasn't a horse head. The aristocrat whose carriage ran over the child wakes up with the head of a gargoyle in his bed.
@ LakeLevel 8:22 AMPravda dissing Palin.Exactly.They recognize someone they won't be able to BS. Or intimidate with fears of being made to look bad.The libs have spent the last 2+ years conditioning the Palins re that.
Am I the only one who finds it really funny that AlphaLiberal goes to Pravda for his political pointers.Too funny.
Normally you chew off your arm to get away from being in bed with someone like Ms. Cho.But to chew off your head, that's pretty impressive.
Maybe they can make a movie about it like that guy that cut his arm off.
"I was trapped under Margaret Cho for 127 hours!!! Then I cut off my head to escape!"It could work!Cho was okay back in the day, as was Garofalo. And I think, if you set political views aside, the latter is actually a real sweetheart.Having said that, I have no desire to click through here.
Doesn't she have some gross fat girl orgy to brag about somewhere?Btw, can you really refer to someone as a "comedian" if you cannot prove you've ever made someone laugh? Does she still do that, "my parents are traditional Koreans and I'm a crazy American style girl" shtick? Wasn't funny in 1995, still not funny now.
@William:@Gabriel: It wasn't a horse head. The aristocrat whose carriage ran over the child wakes up with the head of a gargoyle in his bed.No! That's a metaphor. The "stone figure" is the murdered Marquis, with a kinfe in his heart:It portended that there was one stone face too many, up at the chateau. The Gorgon had surveyed the building again in the night, and had added the one stone face wanting; the stone face for which it had waited through about two hundred years. It lay back on the pillow of Monsieur the Marquis. It was like a fine mask, suddenly startled, made angry, and petrified. Driven home into the heart of the stone figure attached to it, was a knife. Round its hilt was a frill of paper, on which was scrawled: "Drive him fast to his tomb. This, from JACQUES." You can't stab an actual statue...it's a metaphor.
