Bush, Kerry Rocked at Oscars
They finally have a funny host and I missed it…crap.
He likened Bush’s performance as president to working at a clothing store such as the Gap, starting with a surplus, but ending with trillions of dollars in debt.
“Just imagine you worked at the Gap,” Rock continued. “You’re $70 trillion behind in your register and then you start a war with Banana Republic because you say they got toxic tank tops over there.”
“You finally take over Banana Republic and you find out they never made tank tops in the first place.”
The remarks generated laughter and applause from many of those in attendance.
Later in the program, he took a shot at Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, while he pointed out Oprah Winfrey was in the audience.
“Oprah is so rich, I saw John Kerry proposing to her just an hour ago,” Rock joked.
Maybe I’ll have to watch next year.
Hasn’t happened yet, but might as well get the inevitable out of the way…

Do you really need to read more than the headline and sub-head to know that this is a bad idea?

It’s funny how the definition of a terrorist has suddenly become whatever America says is a terrorist.
US bars Nicaragua heroine as ‘terrorist’
Writers and academics voice anger as state department refuses visa to let Sandinista revolutionary take up post as Harvard professor
The woman who epitomised the 1979 Nicaraguan revolution that overthrew the dictator Anastasio Somoza has been denied entry to the US to take up her post as a Harvard professor on the grounds that she had been involved in “terrorism”.
A number of academics and writers are protesting against the ban. “It is absurd,” said Gioconda Belli, the Nicaraguan writer who was also an active member of the Sandinistas and is now based in Los Angeles. “Dora Maria is an outstanding woman who fought against a dictatorship. If fighting against tyranny is ‘terrorism’ how does the United States justify the invasion of Iraq? It is an insult.”
Wait a second.
The US bombed Nicaragua in the 1980s, killing tens of thousands of people, and led to America being the only country ever condemned of international terrorism by the World Court…
…yet a woman who was a central figure in a revolution against a dictator is the terrorist here?
This isn’t America-bashing. This is history. The woman isn’t a terrorist. She’s a well-respected revolution heroine who was invited to teach by Harvard. America was founded by a revolution. Have we forgotten this?
I support the war on terror 100%, but banning a woman who fought a dictator is not part of that war.
And speaking of the war on terror, isn’t it about time we got back to that?
Two unrealistic characters + two ugly chicks + one dumb plot = Oscar-worthy movie???
I’m convinced this is the critic’s practical joke of the year. Lets all hype this movie and watch the sheep fall in love with it!
Ugh. I want my $11.25 back.
