He notes that the media is very interested in "vetting" average citizens and comedians who tell wrongthink jokes, but strangely uninterested in "vetting" their rich friends banging underaged kids on Epstein's pedophile Paradise Island

You wouldn't expect the zombie TV timewaster the Simpsons to be daring, funny, or relevant, would you?
Too hot for the Bulwark! Bulwark superstar nepot (nepots do favors for other nepots) Molly-Jong Fast writes of three "legendary" sexists, Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump, and Brett Kavanaugh
She writes at Medium. I guess not even Pierre Omidyar's money was enough to get the Bulwark Brain Trust to publish this one.

Legendary hockey announcer Don Cherry (he's the Canoehead version of Vin Scully or Harry Carey) fired for.....opining that immigrants to Canada should buy a poppy to honor Canadian war dead.
“People ... come here, whatever it is, you love our way of life, you love our milk & honey. At least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies .. These guys pay for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. These guys pay the biggest price."

And yes, they fired him on Remembrance Day. Disgraceful. [Weirddave]
Cindy McCain: My dead husband John McCain would be "disgusted" by attacks on Joe Biden
Yes, he would have been. He was always very pro-Democrat -- lying to his voters his whole life -- and only stopped hiding it as death approached.
Too good to be true rumor? Rumor is that Rise of Soywalker test screenings were a complete disaster
Weighing against the rumor: We now know that ABC hunts down leakers and tries to ruin their lives

"I am a Corrupt-American"

Governor McGreevey Shifts $10 Million From Surplus Fund to Pay for "Public Service Ads" Featuring Himself

So far during the Olympics -- an expensive place to buy ads -- I've seen two commercials featuring Jim McGreevey, and I'm in the New York market. (Also an expensive place to buy ads.) Both ads were NJ PSA's designed to convey the message "McGreevey is fixing this problem." As a non-NJ-resident, there really wasn't any reason to tell me to call the NJ Department of Health "to get the real facts about ecxema," or whatever the ads were about.

It was just a transparent wasted of state funds for the improper purpose of attempting to improve the Governor's image with NJ voters.

Well, the NJ GOP is crying foul, as they should:

Since January, the McGreevey administration has quietly transfered $10 million from the state's surplus into television and radio advertising campaigns that mostly featured the governor, the Asbury Park Press has learned.

All of the McGreevey ads are now being reviewed following the governor's Aug. 12 announcement that he would resign Nov. 15 because of a gay love affair, McGreevey spokesman Micah Rasmussen said.

One television tourism ad has already been edited to delete the McGreevey family from the end of the national spot.

Republicans say until the scandal broke, McGreevey, a Democrat, used state funds to boost his sagging poll ratings and image with the public even as the state raised taxes and borrowed $2.7 billion to balance this fiscal year's budget.

McGreevey has appeared in taxpayer-funded advertisements touting an improved E-ZPass toll collection system, more efficient motor vehicles offices, better business climate, the state's "do not call" list and a need for greater AIDS awareness.

The state Senate Republican office estimates that McGreevey has spent $30 million on ads since the beginning of his term in 2002.

State Sen. Leonard Lance, R-Hunterdon and Senate minority leader, said the multimillion-dollar ad campaign featuring the governor is frivolous.

"There is no way we should be spending money on this advertising when we have such a budget crisis, which will be even greater next spring," Lance said.

Rasmussen said the administration does not track nor total the amounts spent on advertisements featuring the governor.

Rasmussen disputed Lance's comments. He said the advertising was needed to tell residents about such services as new Saturday hours at motor vehicles offices.

"How will people know if we don't tell them?" Rasmussen said. "Maybe there wasn't a reason to let people know about new government services in the past because there were no new government services."

He "needed" to tell me about new Saturday hours at the DMV.

Because, if he hadn't told me, I would not have known.

Upcoming: A new ad instructing the voters that New Jersey is well-prepared to defend against a terrorist attack, so long as that attack comes in the form of Hebraic poetry.
