I, Barack: Obama References Himself Twelve Times in Latest Fund-raising Email

Posted on 17 July 2014

But enough about me.  Let’s talk about how you feel about me . . . Maybe Barack Obama should modify his famous New Age-y line, uttered after the 2008 Super Tuesday results, to read “I am the one I have been waiting for.” In recent times, it’s become an entertaining parlor game to count the number of self references in President Obama’s public statements.  

The latest opportunity to play the game comes via a fund-raising email the prez sent out this morning. Defiantly entitled “I Won’t Apologize,” the short message contains by my count no fewer than 11 self-references [12 if you count the URL for the fund-raising link]—a self-adoring assortment of I, I’m, I’ll and me. View the complete email after the jump.

WATCH: Chris Matthews Has Al Sharpton-Like Teleprompter Flub

Posted on 16 July 2014

During a segment attacking conservative Republicans who have been critical of the Obama administration’s handling of the border crisis, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had an amusing Al Sharpton-like teleprompter moment, repeatedly trying, and failing, to pronounce “dengue fever.” It’s curious that Matthews, who once served in the Peace Corps in Swaziland, seems unfamiliar with the term, given how prevalent the disease is in many sub-Saharan African countries — although not Swaziland itself.

The flub occurred as Matthews read for his guests — California Democratic Reps. Loretta Sanchez and Juan Vargas — a portion of a letter that Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) sent to the Atlanta-based federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about his “concerns that the diseases carried by these children may begin to spread too rapidly to control.” Watch the clip below the page break.

Jimmy Fallon Takes a Swipe at ObamaCare

Posted on 17 June 2014

Just a few days ago NewsBusters noted that Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has started making subtle jabs at President Obama.

In last night’s monologue he joked with the crowd about the president’s recent annual physical checkup, taking a swipe at ObamaCare. The president, Fallon deadpanned, had complained about some pain in his right foot, but, “when asked why he doesn’t get it treated, Obama said it’s not covered by ObamaCare.”

HBO Pseudo-News Anchor John Oliver Gets Net Neutrality Fundamentally Wrong

Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Dan Rather … and Jon Stewart?

Dennis Miller Tells Seth Meyers ‘America is Built on Busting Your A**’

Posted on 04 June 2014

[Warning: Vulgarity ahead.] Dennis Miller has a response for those liberals who think this country is full of people who can’t better their lives with new jobs: America “is built on busting your a**.” Late Night host Seth Meyers on Tuesday night hosted his fellow Saturday Night Live alum. The radio host and comic was promoting his new stand up act, “America 180.”

Meyers asked Dennis Miller to explain a little bit about the theme of  his “America 180″ act. The comedian explained that he grew skeptical when he heard Nancy Pelosi use the term “job lock,” the idea of someone being stuck in a job simply for the benefits. According to Pelosi, that isn’t fair. She thinks people should be able to “free themselves” from this problem.
