Funny Late Nite Jokes: GOP Gaffer Rick Perry

Rick Perry

From Denny:  GOP 2012 candidate Rick Perry has been stepping on his tongue ever since he entered the race.

Considering how we here in Louisiana feel about the next door neighbor's bullying Texas culture, we Cajun types affectionately call "Shit Kickers," it could not have happened to a better politician.

After all, who has empathy for the guy who thought the BP Oil Spill was  good event planning?  And what about his whining wife who could dish out the meanness but not take it when kicked back at her and her husband?  Whining is not a sign of inner spiritual strength.

Supermodel Heidi Klum should be crowned Queen of Halloween for her daring costumes that raise the threshold of the outrageous. (Though Martha Stewart is right up there, reigning supreme. Check out her latest Halloween look.)

Halloween is one of her favorite holidays to indulge in some campy fun. This year she was wheeled out on a gurney to the Halloween party - as a dead body. She even sports two Halloween costumes this year.

Jon Stewart Screams and Laughs at Pat Robertson Mocking GOP

OK, so this is NOT Pat Robertson but Glenn Beck: same difference.

From Denny:  If you missed the latest Pat Robertson incredulous statement, not to worry.  Jon Stewart saved the juicy clip for all to see.

How timely it is during the GOP political debating season of stupid issues and stupid political positions while Rome is burning.  Which is exactly what Pat Robertson, of the Moral Majority 700 Club, addresses.

I don't know which is funnier:  Jon's reaction to a sane statement from Pat Robertson that could not be more true about just how ridiculous the Republican Party has become or actually hearing with your own ears what Pat Robertson declared to his own party.  It's a case of a looney tune calling his party a bunch of lunatics.

Take a look and you will see why Jon renames Pat's TV show "The 180 Club" for he certainly has staked out an unusual position of his own:

The Soul Calendar: Jon Stewart Interview: Why Fear Mongers Will Not Accept Science

Lisa RandallImage via WikipediaThe Soul Calendar: Jon Stewart Interview: Why Fear Mongers Will Not Accept Science: From Denny: Stewart interviews author and physicist Lisa Randall, of the new book "Knocking On Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World."

Stewart asks, "Why do we fight so hard to be illuminated by it?" He is referencing the conservative political atmosphere that fears science unreasonably.

Randall offers up that perhaps the reason science is not so easily accepted is because "so many of the theories are far removed from what we see in our daily lives - and not necessarily the most intuitive."

She believes that if people would go beyond just human scale - where only technology can measure - that perhaps they will not be so afraid if they learn more about it and be more interested.

Stewart poses the question as to why are God and science incompatible? Clearly, that is what so many people fear - like science will be 100 percent provable and certain, eliminating room for God.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Libya: Comic Talks Marketing Guru, Rebranding Libya

John Oliver, photo taken on October 11, 2009, ...Image via WikipediaDennys Funny Quotes: Libya: Comic Talks Marketing Guru, Rebranding Libya: From Denny: This Daily Show interview, conducted by comic John Oliver with former Libyan Ambassador Ali Suleiman Aujali, is a study in what we call in Louisiana "Crawfishing." Get a laugh and watch this 40 year loyal servant of Gaddafi walk backwards his life, his actions, and resell himself as a servant of Libya.

John Oliver: "Gaddafi is one of the most eccentric despots in the Middle East. This leather-faced, Ukrainian nurse-loving lunatic has been in power since 1969."

Then Oliver compares both their bosses as dictators: "We both work for charismatic dictatorial figures who don't like to leave their rooms unless it's to go on to TV. They are both addicted to the adulation of crowds. They both look really weird up close. They both like Jewish jokes - though probably for different reasons..."

Dennys Global Politics: Libya: Jon Stewart Comments on Celebrating Gaddafi Death

Jon StewartImage via WikipediaDennys Global Politics: Libya: Jon Stewart Comments on Celebrating Gaddafi Death: From Denny: Only Jon Stewart could send off Gaddafi with a Big Bang out of this world. He likens Gaddafi to the death of the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz.

You watch the striped legs with fire engine red shoes suddenly withdraw and disappear under the house - that was dropped onto said naughty witch - and then the witch vanishes in the famous Hollywood magic.

So it is with Gaddafi vanishing off the world stage. Actually, he was also mocking the media for telling viewers about how graphic were the death photos of Gaddafi so Stewart had a little fun with this idea.

Moving right along, Stewart changes over to giving advice to dictators in his segment: Offers Strongmen His Dic-Tip. Come on; all American male comics love penis jokes and never fail to include them in every show. Of course, nothing like rightfully comparing dictators to Dick Heads - or Richard Craniums for the sensitive crowd.

Millions Of Homeowners Are Floundering, Market in Freefall

From Denny:  President Obama rolled out yet another homeowners program aimed at propping up the housing market and therefore the economy.  It's doomed to fail as well as the other recent two programs that were rife with crooks administering them.

Crooked Deal, No Oversight: Bank America Gets $75 TRILLION Bailout From Taxpayers?

Bank of America TowerBank of America Image via Wikipedia

From Denny:  Think you know just how scummy the tactics are on Wall Street?  Wait for it because this week the American taxpayers got skunked yet again - and without Congress getting involved.

What happened to screw over Americans?  You see Bank of America got greedy and shoveled toxic derivatives out of their recently purchased Merrill Lynch and into the part of the bank that is insured by the U.S. government: taxpayers.

That way the Merrill Lynch unit of Bank of America will not be responsible for what could be as much as $75 TRILLION in this toxic dump.  That's how much of this garbage they have in house. To get perspective on this, the annual American economy is only $15 trillion.

Libyan Gaddafi is Finally Confirmed Dead: From Denny: There is rejoicing and a huge sigh of relief sweeping across Libya today as news reached the world that former leader Gaddafi had been killed as he attempted to flee Sirte.

Long time dictator Moammar Gaddafi was killed by revolutionary rebel forces that now control the country with a transitional government.

The grandiose Gaddafi had declared himself "King of Kings" of Africa. Instead, he found his legacy as a bloody lifeless body passed around on cell phone pictures around the world. Libyans are giddy with relief the hard slog of an unlikely winnable uprising is finally over.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Daily Show Comic John Oliver Interviews Occupy Wall Street Protesters

John Oliver, photo taken on October 11, 2009, ...Image via WikipediaDennys Funny Quotes: Funny Daily Show Comic John Oliver Interviews Occupy Wall Street Protesters: From Denny: The Daily Show's British comic, John Oliver, goes out into the Occupy Wall Street crowd to try and identify with their emerging culture. Over 57 percent of America agrees with this protest. But, John Oliver asks, do we have what it takes to be a part of this protest?

Oliver explores the odd hand language that has emerged during the movement. It seems strange to wriggle your fingers in the air, either up for approval, down for disapproval or wriggling in the middle zone for "not real crazy about that idea, folks."

The truth is these are some clever folks. They have created inventive ways around the New York City restrictions on noise levels, no use of amplification devices and the like officials have tried to use against them to discourage and hamper the protests. All it has done is grow the protest crowds - and stretch their imagination.

Jon Stewart Ridicules GOP Mocking Most Of America

From Denny: Jon Stewart hits it out of the ball park yet again.  Here he pulls together copious news clips of the GOP's rallying cry to the American public to "go out into the streets and take back America." Much to their chagrin Americans are doing just that.  It's called Occupy Wall Street protests.

Only problem is that they are the 80 percent of the country the Republicans love to hate:  the middle class, liberals, progressives, labor unions, gays, the unemployed, students who graduated and can't find jobs... you know, most of the country.

One of the clips is especially funny where the GOP tries to sell their tired "class warfare" whine: "It's not nice to pit millionaires against billionaires." That's as crazy as Mitt Romney's recent, "Corporations are people too."

Who ARE these people voted into Congress anyway? We should relabel them from politicians to The Outrageous Who Suck Wall Street Assets.

Can you see it when the news cameras turn off the lights and mikes? Eric Cantor gets on his cell and puts in a call to his Wall Street handlers, "So, now that I've delivered your message have you dropped my $3 million into my account? Oh, good, nice doing business with you in such a timely manner."

Take a look at Jon Stewart's devastating reveal of the GOP Speak Talking Heads selling their stupidity.

Gen. Petraeus: Why No One Wants To Work For Your CIA

U.S. Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, the commande...CIA Director Petraeus, Image via Wikipedia

From Denny:  At this point, now one month into his job, the word is that the new director is horrified at the lack of acquiring and keeping good people.  He is shocked that even the children of CIA officers do not - and will not - apply to the agency. In contrast, in the military tradition it is commonplace for generations to serve.

The intelligence community has long known that the children of CIA officers absorb the mindset and understanding of the intelligence world from growing up in it, creating an easier transition to get an employee ready for the environment.

What they did not calculate is how the tension and dangers of the intelligence environment takes its toll upon the family of CIA officers too.  Who wants to spend your childhood as a soft target for assassins only to choose that same career as an adult and then turn around and do it to your children?  Many have discovered what a bad idea that was and counsel their children against joining the agency.

The dangerous political atmosphere of the CIA where your own colleagues are setting you up to take the fall for more than just a career move for them has soured many on the CIA.  There is little team integrity and team loyalty.  Few can trust each other.

The children of CIA officers view this up close, choosing another path away from such intense emotional burnout.  It's safer to live in a poor neighborhood with drive-by shootings, gangs and drug cartels.  At least you can identify who is your enemy.  In the CIA, anyone can be your enemy, even fellow Americans here or abroad.

Now that Gen. Petraeus has retired from the military and taken up the post as CIA Director, "his eyes are uncovered."  And he thought he knew it all.  Uh huh.  Welcome to my world.

News Links: Occupy Wall Street Protests 1 - 12 Oct 2011

From Denny:  Occupy Wall Street is finally getting the attention of mainstream media.  Europe, the Middle East and Asia are as fascinated with the protest movement as are Americans.  Wall Street and other Big Business concerns like Fox News have tried to trivialize the anger of America's majority but to no avail.

The protests are growing exponentially as more people from all different walks of life and age groups are lifting up their voices in protest against America's "bought government" and demanding reform from our highest politicians.

Check out how the media's awareness of the movement has evolved from first "why take them seriously" to "OMG! This is the real deal!"  The protest first erupted in New York City in September.  At the time the organizers planned to march for three weeks.  Now that the movement has morphed and evolved, developing a life of its own, organizers threw that plan out of the window, planning to march indefinitely.

Occupy Wall Street: Are Their Conclusions Correct?

From Denny:  This new American Revolution, Occupy Wall Street, caught fire across America in less than one month of protests.  OWS is spreading to 25 cities like an oozing peanut butter sandwich overflowing with jam - and is now international too.  There is just something so appealing about this protest movement because of its common ground that cuts across the spectrum of race, gender, lifestyle, generations, education and economic class.

Occupy Wall Street Protests Mantra

Occupy Wall Street protesters have been smart in targeting the lynch pin of American society:  the financial sector.  It is the financial sector that buys the politicians to pass the laws to unleash business to have free rein and never enforce what laws are on the books.

It's the financial sector that buys the police force to intimidate ordinary citizens like those incidents of pepper sprayed women during the protests.  Notice they didn't go after men who could pummel them; they went after women.

Jon Stewart Interviews Boomerang Author Michael Lewis About Global Big Banks Disaster

From Denny:  This author decided to go on a walkabout.  Actually, Michael Lewis went on a financial disaster tour of several European countries:  Iceland, Ireland, Greece and Germany.

He wanted to view the global financial disaster through the prism of each culture and what a view he got.  (He is also the author of Moneyball that was recently made into a movie.)

In Iceland he discovered that up until seven years ago the only way to make money in Iceland was fishing.  But, seven years ago," the men literally walked off the fishing boats and walked into the banks deciding to become currency traders in a matter of days."

Even their president went around the world crowing about how Icelanders were natural investment bankers.  Yeah?  Where had that talent been hiding for the past 1,000 years?  The country is only the size of Peoria, Illinois with a population of 300,000.

Like typical men they told the women they knew what they were doing and not to question them.  Who needs directions, right?  They took three small Icelandic banks and morphed them into global banks inside five short years.  They amassed $140 billion.  Looked good, right?

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger:

From Denny: Over 19 million people laughed off their chairs at the narration of this honey badger video. This is one fierce animal, so fierce it attacks cobra snakes head on and bites off their heads. Unbelievable.

Who needs the pesticide Snake Away when you can adopt a honey badger? Just keep your dogs and cats inside when this beast prowls the neighborhood.

What's more funny is how here in Louisiana one of our LSU Tigers got tagged with the name Honey Badger It Takes What It Wants: Tyrann Mathieu. They used to call him T-Rex for his prowess on the field even though he is small by football standards.

Like LSU Coach Les Miles says, "Never judge a person by their size but by the fight in them." Mathieu has been known to out jump those a good foot taller than him to catch the ball. Unbelievable. Yep, the Honey Badger rules on the LSU football field.

Occupy Wall Street Protests: Where To Find In Your State

Occupy AnchorageOccupy COMO

From Denny:  The Occupy Wall Street protests are growing so fast that it is tripling every three days.

The mainstream media complains it is too difficult to cover the protests.  That sure sounds like their Big Business handlers and Wall Street are trying to sideline the protesters.

Well, not so fast Big Boys.  The following is America's list by the states and territory of OWS protest events, dates and timeline updates.  The understaffed and unofficial website, Occupy Together, is trying to pull together information and events across the country.  Check in with them and maybe help with the work load if you can.

Meanwhile, you can check in your area where you can join the protests from the list below.

The Twitter page is Occupy The US.

Currently, the protests have left the original New York City birth place and spread out first to 200 cities and now to over 400 cities in less than a week.

It's a new American Revolution that has gone viral as a way to voice America's anger at getting shafted by Big Business and government that refuses to address a serious jobs program and all the ensuing social issues that have been born out of a chaotic economy and long term unemployment.

I'm a journalist.  Do you see me having a hard time covering this OWS protest?  No one owns me so I'm free to speak the whole truth.

New American Revolution: Protests Rampant Against Wall Street Nationwide

From Denny:
 The American middle class is angry, angry at the greed of Wall Street that has imploded this once thriving economy, dirtied the air and find themselves now deprived of a living wage or any kind of job.

Protesters began this movement in New York City, rallying against many issues all tied to the financial district's direction it has moved the country.  They protest against excessive corporate greed, global warming and social inequality - and that's just the appetizer course in this new American Revolution.
