UnbELIevable Movie Premise

leave a comment »

Wow, so that text in the “Book of Eli” movie isn’t “The Audacity of Hope”? I’m liking this movie more and more.

Think of Christian films, and you might conjure up images of Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” with Jesus being brutally pummeled and crucified until he dies. Or you might think of countless lesser-known movies filled with sappy storylines, bad acting and moral messages that are themselves pummeled into the audience.

But the new movie “The Book of Eli” doesn’t fit either of those molds. In fact, this wildly entertaining, ultra-violent, post-Apocalyptic tale of a lone wanderer named Eli (Denzel Washington) who will defend the mysterious book in his possession at all costs is one of the oddest yet most forthright faith-based films to ever come out of a major studio.

Eli is carrying a copy of the last Bible on the planet, since all other religious texts – including Torahs and Korans – were rounded up and destroyed 30 years before after religious strife was believed to have caused a devastating global nuclear war…

Denzel better hope the Muslims don’t get wind of this movie. Just saying one Koran gets flushed down a toilet is already one of the worst things you can do to a Muslim male…

Newsweek apologized yesterday for an inaccurate report on the treatment of detainees that triggered several days of rioting in Afghanistan and other countries in which at least 15 people died.

Editor Mark Whitaker expressed regret over the item in the magazine’s “Periscope” section, saying it was based on a confidential source — a “senior U.S. government official” — who now says he is not sure whether the story is true.

The deadly consequences of the May 1 report, and its reliance on the unnamed source, have sparked considerable anger at the Pentagon. Spokesman Bryan Whitman called Newsweek’s report “irresponsible” and “demonstrably false,” saying the magazine “hid behind anonymous sources which by their own admission do not withstand scrutiny. Unfortunately, they cannot retract the damage that they have done to this nation or those who were viciously attacked by those false allegations.”

Whitaker said last night that “whatever facts we got wrong, we apologize for. I’ve expressed regret for the loss of life and the violence that put American troops in harm’s way. I’m getting a lot of angry e-mail about that, and I understand it.”

The report, in the issue dated May 9, said U.S. military investigators had found that American interrogators at the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had flushed a copy of the Koran, the sacred Muslim text, down a toilet. A week later, when newspapers in Afghanistan and Pakistan picked up the item, it sparked anti-American demonstrations in the Afghan city of Jalalabad in which four protesters were killed and more than 60 injured. About a dozen more protesters were killed in the following days when the demonstrations spread across Afghanistan and to Pakistan and other countries.

…I shudder to think what destroying every last one of these books on earth would do.

Pardon My Disappointment

leave a comment »

So today the PTI boys were talking about Lane Kiffin leaving Tennessee for USC. What I loved was Michael Wilbon’s comment about how he doesn’t understand all the hype around someone who has done so little … like Sarah Palin.

Yeah, or perhaps YOUR BOY the Non-Dialect Negro. Then again, President Hussein has fostered good relations with the planet of Kashyyyk by marrying one of its own.

And of course the other lib on the show pussied out during the role play segment. When Tony Kornheiser got to play the role of the now-lightened up Sammy Sosa he made a remark about his paler complexion but no joke about Harry Reid. Come on, Tony. That was a softball waiting to be crushed out of the park and you didn’t have the stones to swing. I know you’re a commie, but I thought you would be one to take a joke and run with it when the opportunity arose.

Leg Of Lamb, Face Of Man

leave a comment »

Saw this on Drudge today, proving once again…

A sheep gave birth to a dead lamb with a human-like face. The calf was born in a village not far from the city of Izmir, Turkey.

Erhan Elibol, a vet, performed Cesarean section on the animal to take the calf out, but was horrified to see that the features of the calf’s snout bore a striking resemblance to a human face.

“I’ve seen mutations with cows and sheep before. I’ve seen a one-eyed calf, a two-headed calf, a five-legged calf. But when I saw this youngster I could not believe my eyes. His mother could not deliver him so I had to help the animal,” the 29-year-old veterinary said.

…everything in life can be traced back to a South Park episode.

All it needed were four asses.

American Idle

leave a comment »

So earlier this evening I watched via DVR the first episode of “American Idol” for this season.

I usually watch the first episode or two of this stupid show just to laugh at the freaks whose dreams of fame get condensed to 15 minutes.

Truth be told, I like Simon Cowell. Of course he’s an asshole, but let me repeat: I like Simon Cowell.

Expecting a recap of the show? Hell, It’s been about an hour since I watched it and I don’t remember anyone who was on.

Built Ford Jr. Tough

leave a comment »

Harold Ford Jr. is one of my favorite Democrats out there.

I’m not kidding.

I don’t know much about him, but whenever I heard him as a congressman from Tennessee he seemed like a sensible enough guy. In fact, in the massacre that was the 2006 election, he was the one Democrat I wouldn’t have minded see winning a Senate seat. Of course that means he lost.

So why can’t a brother get a break just because he wants to run for the U.S. Senate in N00-Yawk?

National media outlets are abuzz with rumors that Ford might challenge New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in the Democratic primary later this year for the seat once occupied by Hitlery Rodham Clinton and Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Gillibrand was appointed to the seat after Clinton was named Secretary of State…

…On Friday, with the national gossip mill in overdrive, prompted by stories saying that Democratic leaders had urged Ford not to run, Ford had a newly hired spokesman issue a combative statement about the possibility of challenging Gillibrand.

And as a bonus, he’s a light-skinned negro…

…WHO SPEAKS SO WELL~!!!

Isn’t that what the Senate Democrat leadership look for in a candidate?

I’ll tell you what. Considering what’s in the Empire State, I’d be downright giddy to have this guy as a Senator from that region.

You Spell Massachusettes And I’ll Spell Massachusetts

leave a comment »

So there are a number of reasons I wouldn’t want to live in Taxachusetts — the weather, the high cost of living, Barney Fwank, Massholes in general. However, one of the biggest reasons is that I would have to spell Massachusetts. Seriously, that’s almost as bad as Connecticut.

Why am I talking about this?

This recent political ad for the special senate election misspells the state’s name. You say potato and I’ll say potatoe…

…then again, me goofing on a type-o is like the pot calling the kettle a non-dialect negro.
