Stephen Colbert Roasts Dick Cheney about Iraq and WMDs

cheney-colbert

The politics in this post is a little stale, but the humor is as fresh as it gets. Master satirist, Stephen Colbert, has taken on former Vice President Dick Cheney over WMDs, Iraq and President Barack Obama with a flair that is trademark Colbert. He does not directly attack Cheney, but instead agrees with Cheney wholeheartedly in such a fashion that the viewer understands that such disagreement is a given.

“Rarely has a US President been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

 Cheney recently criticized President Barack Obama’s Middle East foreign policies, especially the policy on Iraq. As a frequent guest on the talk shows Cheney railed against Obama foreign policies and also wrote a guest editorial for the Wall Street Journal titled “Collapsing Obama Doctrine” in which he recently stated, while referring to Obama’s Iraq policy, “Rarely has a US President been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

To this Stephen Colbert replied, “Yes, rarely…maybe only one other time.”

Please watch similar Colbert repartee in the following video (part 1):

Because the video hosting sites are so meticulously fussy about copyrights, I have been forced to cut the video into parts just so I could post it. Have a look at part 2.

Perhaps, as Colbert suggested, it is time to raid Cheney’s sac searching for WMDs? How else could the former vice president suggest that the nation and the rest of the world were in agreement that Saddam Hussein was harboring WMDs?

I vividly remember sitting in my living room prior to the 2003 US invasion of Iraq watching former Secretary of State Colin Powell lie to the world about having proof that Saddam possessed WMDs. I remember feeling at the time that Powell was lying and doing it quite poorly. It was without a doubt one of the worst snow jobs I have ever witnessed.

Yet Cheney still apparently believes that the world still swallows his hogwash about WMDs. Why won’t Dick Cheney retire to his home in Wyoming and leave the rest of us alone?

Hasn’t he already done enough damage to the nation?

President Obama Sings Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ – Video

President Obama spoke at a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, following a performance by singer Al Green. To the delight of the audience the big O actually sang a line of the song, Let’s Stay Together.

All politics aside Prez Obama is truly a cool dude. Of course, there is so much hate between the conservative right and the liberal left that the neocons have been poisoning the Internet with diatribes against Mr. O regarding this video. It really wouldn’t matter who the Prez was. As long as he is a Democrat the right wing will hate him and slander both his name and anything he does.

Why is there so much hatred in this country? If the hate doesn’t eventually abate, we are lost as a nation.

Funny Candidate License Plates

With election day almost upon us, we thought we would research the presidential and vice presidential candidates and their license plates to see if we could learn anything or find anything humorous about them. Let’s see how they look.

Sarah Palin:



Wait a minute…this cannot be right. There is something wrong with this one. This cannot be Governor Palin’s license plate, although it is from Alaska and it is a government plate, which is what a governor might use. We will have to look into this one. It seems there is some shenanigans afoot.

____________________________

John McCain:

Well, Senator McCain did say that he owns 13 cars, so it makes sense that he would have several different license plates. They all fit our man McCain. Hey, wait a minute. McCain didn’t serve in the Civil War, did he?

Oh, it’s just another age joke. McCain should tell folks he’s 72 going on 22 because he has so much energy.

____________________________

Barack Obama:


Barack Obama is a US Senator from the state of Illinois, so it is natural that he might have both Illinois plates and plates from the Washington, D.C. area. Virginia fits right in there. “Obama 08” sounds just like Obama man. It is unlikely that Obama would put “God Complex” on his own plate, so I think the second one is a fake. It’s probably something the Republicans slid in unobtrusively.

Joe Biden:


It appears that Joe Biden’s plate has a double meaning. Joe could mean he is biding (biden’) time, or he may mean it’s Biden time, as in “it’s Miller Time.”

Personally I think he means let’s have a tall cool one, and I am not talking about Sarah Palin again. Joe looks like he might be the type of guy who would kick back for a beer break. Either way, I think Joe’s plate is the cleverest of the group.

McCain Economic Plan – Everyone Marry an Heiress

John McCain offered his master economic plan today in a speech before business leaders in Detroit. The plan is so simple it is ingenious. McCain’s plan calls for everyone in the nation to marry a beer heiress just like he did.

Cindy McCain is an heiress to her father’s Anheuser-Busch distributorship empire. James Hensley, her multi-millionaire father, owned one of the largest beer distributorships in the US.

McCain’s economic philosophy is that if he was able to marry a beer heiress, everyone else can too. Of course the video explains that there may not be a beer heiress in your town. In that case you should consider a logging heiress.

Watch the video for a more thorough explanation of McCain’s plan:

McCain’s economic concept is so simple yet so profound that it is possible he could earn a Nobel Prize in Economics for this groundbreaking theory.

Once you have married an heiress the price of oil would be insignificant. Why would you care whether gas cost $4 or $40?

John McCain owns 13 cars. If we all married an heiress, the automobile business would boom as would the real estate business. McCain cannot even remember how many houses he owns.

We would all own several homes.

This concept could be the major point in the presidential campaign that turns the tide toward the John McCain camp.

How will Barack Obama respond to this election changing event?

The Funniest Elliot Spitzer Jokes – Videos – Cartoons – Funny Photos

New York’s former governor, Elliot Spitzer, is the butt of countless new jokes. Here are a few of the better ones:

Jay Leno:

“Eliot Spitzer admitted publicly that he was involved in a prostitution ring, which means Hillary Clinton is now only the second angriest wife in the state of New York.”

Speaking of angry wives, how about the body language on Silda Spitzer, the ex-governor’s wife of the moment, in the photo below. In this case, one picture is worth at least 10,000 words:

*****

Here is more along the angry wife line of thought from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette:

From New York comedienne Lisa Landry:

“It’s just mind-blowing that he spent $4,300 on a hooker. It just shows how high the cost of living is in New York. That same hooker would cost $50 in Newark.”

*****
David Letterman is probably my favorite comedian. Here is one of his recent monologues, which devotes almost the entire monologue to Elliot Spitzer:

******

From Conan O’Brien:

“Gov. Spitzer responded just a few hours ago. He said, ‘I violated my obligations to my family and I violated my sense of what is right and wrong.’ Spitzer also admitted violating someone named Amber.”

Here is another one about body language from Daryl Cagle at MSNBC.com:
