This isn’t that brilliant, but I like the idea for the song.

Also too…open thread.

    It may not be brilliant but it works and has a nice melody… “save the rich”

    Get them a cable news roundtable/variety show.

    They can be their own guest artists.

    Save on the budget, with cross over appeal. An obvious win win.

    @arguingwithsignposts: And no amount of maidenly beauty, insight, and some talent for the arts can make up for that? What have we, as a nation, come to?

    I like the last verse where they completely summarize Republican voters:

    Save the rich
    It’s so easy to do
    Just let yourself be ignorant
    To what’s been done to you
    __
    Save the rich
    By doing nothing at all
    Deny all sense and logic
    And just think really small
    You should think really small
    Or just don’t think at all
    And save the rich

    Lyrics here.

    You don’t want to know.

    The funniest thing about the video to me is the innocent look that they both have. But, yeah, they have nothing on Luke Russert or Chelsea Clinton, sadly.

    NYT is reporting that Joe Paterno transferred ownership of his house to his wife for $1 back in July.

    It’s almost as if he knew he’d be facing some claims on his assets, no?

    I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

    Oh, jeeze.

    That is damning. Seriously bad.

    It’s like he’s attached a nuclear device to his legacy and itching to detonate the sucker.

    I love G&O so much. Was hooked right upon hearing ‘Pregnant Women are Smug.’

    Oh, I misunderstood. Then you are wrong. If they are sincere and clueless, then they have a chance. I for one, welcome my new mass media news overlords, whoever they may be.

    If you haven’t done this already, call your reps and senators about these abominations:

    Summary: http://americancensorship.org/
    Details of bills:
    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s968/show
    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h3261/show

    It’s big content trying to kill the internet. Much worse than DMCA because it allows an entire site and its access to payment processors to be shut down without due process if someone claims any content they own is on the site anywhere, even as a link to that content in a blog comment.

    Sponsors include Wasserman-Shultz and Durbin so it’s a wonderfully bipartisan crock of shit.

    G&O always gives me cognitive dissonance because they look like the cast members from Three’s Company.
