Sarah Palin’s 10-Nation Tour at Epcot

In Election 2008, Humor, Political Humor, Politics, Sarah Palin on September 29, 2008 at 9:41 pm

Leave it to the Onion to combine Sarah Palin, Walt Disney World’s Epcot, and foreign policy:

ORLANDO, FL—Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin sought to silence those who have criticized her lack of foreign affairs experience Tuesday by announcing plans for a weeklong, 10-nation tour of Walt Disney World’s Epcot. According to Palin, the trip—her first past Frontierland—will include speaking engagements at Norway’s famous Viking ride, sausages at Germany’s Kaufhaus, and, time permitting, a fact-finding mission to Future World. “This ambitious trip should finally demonstrate that I am ready to assume the vice presidency, whether by standing in long lines at Morocco’s Tangierine Café or by sitting down face-to-face with Mexico’s Three Caballeros,” Palin announced during a campaign stop outside a Chinese restaurant in Tulsa, OK. “All of our neighbors deserve good diplomacy, from the Universe of Energy down to the French pavilion.” Palin also promised a visit to the American Adventure exhibit before returning home, adding that she hoped to learn more about her own nation and the diverse peoples within.

Obama and his internet girlfriend, Obama Girl, finally meet. Well, sort of.

The folks at Barely Political has a new video reminiscent of the tv show “The Wonder Years” (1998-1993).

Here is “The Hope Years” starring a young Barack Obama:

Paris Hilton Enters Election Race

In Barack Obama, Election 2008, Humor, John McCain, Politics on August 5, 2008 at 11:16 pm

Last week I did a post about John Mccain’s new campaign ad in which he used flashes of celebrities such as Paris Hilton. Now we have Paris’ take on the whole election:

I wonder how many takes she had to do while trying to deliver her energy plan. 😉

The McCain campaign, revealing that it had received an “extraordinary number” of requests for a response to Hilton’s ad, said it was impressed by the socialite’s energy policy.

Willy Wonka v. The Pawtucket Patriot Beer Room

In Humor, Movies, Television on July 27, 2008 at 12:57 pm

While channel surfing this morning, I stumbled upon the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I couldn’t help but laugh when I thought about how much that movie scared me as a kid.

Now that I’m all grown up (ha!), I’d rather think of this version of the magical factory:

Willy Wonka just kinda freaks me out a bit. 😦
