Mudflix – Whose Books Would Chicagoans Ban? (You’ll Never Guess)

OK, just to be clear, we here at The Mudflats totally heart the first amendment. It’s actually one of our favorite ones. We would never want to sound like we wanted to limit speech, or squelch the marketplace of ideas, no matter how mind-numbing, head-banging, or downright painfully idiotic those “ideas” may be. That said – Your average Chicagoan on the street was asked which books they would like to see banned at the Printer’s Row Literature Festival in their city. Guess who won. Here are the results: Sarah Palin         36% Glenn Beck           23% Ann Coulter         22% Adolf Hitler             0.5%…

Open Thread – God Hates Shrimp

To commemorate the historic vote on marriage equality in New York state, and Pride celebrations across the land, I’d like to point you to one of my very favorite satirical websites – God Hates Shrimp. What’s that all about, you ask? Well you know when people start quoting Leviticus to defend their stance against gay marriage, calling it “an abomination?” God Hates Shrimp deconstructs this argument with quotes from the scripture and humor. Shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, mussels, all these are an abomination before the Lord, just as gays are an abomination. Why stop at protesting gay marriage? Bring all…

Open Thread – Eerie

OK, this irreverent cringe-inducing but funny satirical clip is TEN years old. All I’m saying is… imagine different hair, and a different annoying accent… and a bus. Just saying.

Twidiot History Palin Style

~Twitter’s infamous “Fail Whale” For anyone who has not checked out the Twitter hashtag #palinhistory, you’re missing out on some much needed levity. After the now viral “Paul Revere was warning the British by ringing bells and firin’ shots in the air” gaffe, some clever tweeters have been coming up with other things Sarah might have to say about “history.” And don’t worry. The predictable Palin has once again not admitted error, but has doubled-down and defended her obviously clueless position. And Palinbots are literally trying to change history by tampering with the Wikipedia page for our defenseless forefather. Wow….

Gotta Know When to Fold ’em – Palin Baffled by East Coast Elite Customs

  So what’s more distasteful to most New Yorkers than Sarah Palin visiting with Donald Trump on her tour through the Big Apple?  As a former resident of the New York City area, I can tell you that this was a faux pas so egregious, so cringe-worthy, so downright embarrassing it has probably lost her a few of the already few votes she’d ever get there. She actually…. she… she… I can hardly say it. (Deep breath and pursed lips) She ate pizza with a knife and fork. Not Chicago-style deep dish pizza – New York style thin crust pizza….

Open Thread – Six Phases

Tina Fey Returns!

For those of you who missed the mock 2012 GOP Candidates Who Haven’t Declared Yet skit on Saturday Night Live last night, enjoy! Tina Fey is back, resplendent in red blazer, life-sized flag pin, and the admiration of… Donald Trump. Sometimes I think it would be worth it to have Palin in the race, just for the entertainment value from Ms. Fey alone.
