President Obama is scheduled to appear on The View on Thursday! Hasselbeck jokes are all over the left-of-far-right blogosphere, but my favorite crack comes from Wonkette, where commentor Canmon (the Inadequate) says:
Andrew Sullivan is trying to get Sarah Palin to do a DNA maternity test on ‘Maury’.
If the space-time continuum survives that epic event (which tapes Wednesday, in case you’re waiting for the earth to sunder and showers of frogs to fall from the skies), we can start looking forward to August 12, when RNC Chairman Michael Steele and ‘conservative activist’ Andrew Breitbart are scheduled to co-headline the Welcome Reception at the Republican National Committee’s “Election Countdown” in Beverly Hills (via TPM). I’m thinking that means neither individual was considered enough of a draw to merit guest-of-honor status, because certainly Beverly Hills Republicans have advanced beyond “nobody wants one of Those People sitting at their table”, right?
And if you just can’t take any more politics, Gawker reports there will be a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie (booo!), which seems to be based on Tim Powers’ fantasy novel On Stranger Tides (yay?). Keira Knightley and Orlanda Bloom are offsky (also good), and Ian McShane will play Blackbeard (EPIC!).
