Tell A Lie Often Enough…

with 2 comments

OK, now I’m starting to scare myself.

Be warned, I’m about to break keyfabe here.

Not everything I say at KK’s Korner is meant to be taken seriously. Yes, I know that may be a newsflash, but there are a number of things I say here in the name of just fooling around. The problem is, you don’t know what those things are. At the message board I frequent which gets pimped on this blog there was a poster who said the following about me that pretty much sums everything up:

That’s the best part about kkk! You want to think he’s being sarcastic, but you never really know.

What was the cause for this statement? The following post I typed up below dealing with this subject:

A thought about President Hussein’s attempted brainwashing of the youth later today.

Drudge has/d posted that Hussein is going to tell the kiddies to wash their hands a bunch. Isn’t this the same Prez-O-Dent that wrote about how offended he was when W. used hand sanitizer after shaking his hand?

With all the diseases over in Kenya, can you BLAME #43?

Someone then replied:

I’m going to assume that all uses of the word “brainwashing” on this forum regarding this topic are sarcastic…

I hope.

Then came the “that’s the best part” comment. Now why am I talking about this? Well, earlier today I had RIGHT-WING RADIO on. Neal Boortz was on vacation, so I had Glenn Beck (ugh) on my radio dial. I wasn’t really paying attention to what he was talking about — something about 10 questions Democrats are going to try to pigeonhole Republicans with this election season. Glenn then read the first question:

“Do you think President Hussein is a U.S. citizen?”

My initial “yes/no” response to this question came up with…


Oh man, what the hell is wrong with me? Have I taken this schtick too far?

For a second, I thought “yes.”

That’s the best part about kkk! You want to think he’s being sarcastic, but you never really know.

All The News That’s Fit To Charge Electronically

leave a comment »

I saw this on Drudge and I had to read on because it was so damn funny…

In late October, Newsday, the Long Island daily that the Dolans bought for $650 million, put its web site, newsday.com, behind a pay wall. The paper was one of the first non-business newspapers to take the plunge by putting up a pay wall, so in media circles it has been followed with interest. Could its fate be a sign of what others, including The New York Times, might expect?

So, three months later, how many people have signed up to pay $5 a week, or $260 a year, to get unfettered access to newsday.com?

The answer: 35 people. As in fewer than three dozen. As in a decent-sized elementary-school class.

That astoundingly low figure was revealed in a newsroom-wide meeting last week by publisher Terry Jimenez when a reporter asked how many people had signed up for the site. Mr. Jimenez didn’t know the number off the top of his head, so he asked a deputy sitting near him. He replied 35.

Michael Amon, a social services reporter, asked for clarification.

“I heard you say 35 people,” he said, from Newsday’s auditorium in Melville. “Is that number correct?”

Mr. Jimenez nodded.

Having been part of office meetings, I can only imagine what that room must have been like during that Q&A. And I’m still laughing, especially after reading this part…

The web site redesign and relaunch cost the Dolans $4 million, according to Mr. Jimenez. With those 35 people, they’ve grossed about $9,000.

Now to be fair, people who subscribe to this fishwrap get access for free. However, the transition to “pay for access” when it comes to media is probably going to be a long, windy road.

What Ad Would Tim Tebow Air?

leave a comment »

So Tim Tebow is going to do some pro-life ad during the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl match up getting almost as much attention as Colts v. Jets is the CBS-approved issue ad starring Tim Tebow, the evangelical quarterback from Florida who’s headed for the spring NFL draft.

The ad’s sponsor, advocacy group Focus on the Family, is playing coy about its content, saying only that it’s a pro-family spot with Tim and his mom, Pam, sharing her personal story exemplifying their opposition to abortion. She ignored doctors advice to abort a potential problem pregnancy and, resting on her faith, carried Tim to term. According to Associated Press, Tim Tebow told reporters Sunday he was honoring his “courageous” mom and holds a religious conviction against abortion

As I was watching PTI today, Tony and Michael were talking about this subject. I knew Wilbon would do the “he’s free to do this BUT…” route. Interesting. I wonder if Tebow was going to slob on the Prez-O-Dent’s knob or take some hippie PC stance if Michael’s stance would be different. (Wilbon was practically wanking whenever he talked about Portland Trailblazers best player on its injured list, Greg Oden, blogging about his experiences with President Hussein.) Tony gave a more practical answer. What’s my response? If the guy doesn’t believe in killing the unborn, then let him say whatever the hell he wants to say.

The PTI duo did make a funny observation though; a “what if” should Tebow’s ad come before or after a Viagra commercial, or some other four-hour boner pitch.

Besides, as long as I don’t have to watch this abortion, I don’t care what comes on during the Super Bowl.
