Yawnworthy, PC Oscars 2014, But At Least the Pali Propaganda Film Didn’t Win – UPDATED

By Debbie Schlussel

*** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ***

A number of readers are asking me what I thought of last night’s Oscars. Actually, I don’t think about it much–a national celebration of mostly garbage and unimportant stuff. I was only half-watching the Oscars, but here’s my reaction, mostly a summary of my few tweets on the yawnfest (follow me on Twitter).

The Oscars were predictable. The winners fit the usual fave Hollywood victimology narratives. Up front, there was the slavery from over a century ago (“Twelve Years a Slave”–read my review) and the never-ending cries of racism that justify Obamaphones, Obamacare, welfare, minority set-asides, affirmative action, and every other form of reparations now plaguing America. Race merchantry lives on at Oscar. So predictable the odds in Vegas need to be adjusted.

Then, there are the new perceived “victims” of sexual racism and forced wedding cake-bakery in Colorado, the Northwest, and now Arizona: transvestites, gays, and AIDS–thus the Matthew McConaughey win for a movie (“Dallas Buyers Club,” or as I call it, “Brokeback Mountain 2.0″–read my review), in which he plays the typical hated bete noire of the left, a right-wing Texas cowboy who hates gays and Muslims, but is forced to partner with a transvestite after being stricken with AIDS. And what was up with McConaughey’s conceited, rambling speech? “Who is my hero? Me in two years.” Huh?

Ellen wore more tacky tuxes than a cheap Vegas lounge act. She looked like she emerged from “My Cousin Vinnie’s” mariachi band (yes, I know there was no mariachi band in “My Cousin Vinnie,” but if there were . . . ). And while she tries her darnedest to look and dress like a man, she has a lot more in common with every other chick comedienne: she ain’t funny. You’d think a woman who tries too hard to look male wouldn’t dare call a manly looking woman who tries her best to look feminine (Liza Minnelli), “a female impersonator.” But you’d be wrong. Ellen called her that, and it didn’t go over well. Chutzpah is what doubles for “funny” with Ellen. Here’s a tip: it ain’t. So, whaddya do when you don’t have the funny? You rely on dumb Twitterbomb photo stunts.







Better Midler’s strained singing of “Wind Beneath My Wings” belongs in the Gitmo torture repertoire. Painful. I thought that song was long ago banished to elevator muzak. Oscars got stuck in the elevator. The 1990s called. They want their bad Vegas cabaret act back. Um, why is the song from the torturous “Beaches” in the 2014 Oscars? Just askin’.

The garish Islamic terrorism supporter Angelina Jolie was wearing a mostly see-through dress, a top down shot of which (on both ABC’s red carpet show and its Oscars telecast) was basically a nude shot of nearly all of her giant, newly reconstructed, post-mastectomy breasts. She was trying to send a message to women, and I guess the message is: if you’re on Obamacare, you won’t get these after you are diagnosed with the BRCA gene. Your Obama-induced policy with large co-pays and high deductibles, won’t cover it. Good luck with that.

Other than that, most women’s dresses were ho-hum, despite the faux-multi-orgasms people are having about overrated PC it-girl, the anti-American Lupita Nyong’o’s (Vanna, can I buy an apostrophe?) dress. The dress was reminiscent of Borat’s mankini. (Hint, if your chest is flatter than Pee Wee Herman’s, probably not a good idea to wear a dress that’s barely there at the top, even if you call the color, a fictional “Kenyan blue.”) The “Kenyan” Yale grad has made very anti-American comments to TMZ, and, yet, America has sent her on the road to fame and riches beyond her wildest dreams. So typical. Yawn. By the way, Nyong’o wasn’t really born in Kenya. She was born in Mexico City. Wow, it’s the Obama vice-versa-ette (or something)–she’s actually trying to claim she’s from Kenya. Her tacky lookalike hanger-on bro, Peter Nyong’o, invaded the Ellen celebrity photo for Twitter. He’s this year’s version of Angelina Jolie’s bro, James Haven. Remember Jolie’s effusive, “I’m so in love with my brother right now“?

I guess I should be grateful that yet another crappy Palestinian propaganda film (“Omar”–read my review), nominated by the politically correct Oscar people, didn’t win, so we didn’t have to hear speeches about how some Arab filmmaker with an Israeli passport will get his revenge and “retake Palestine” or some other such crap.

On the other hand, the Oscars took several hipster “youth” who look like they just walked out of a lesbian amputee poetry reading in Brooklyn, and anointed them, “Team Oscar.” Why and what they actually did on the Oscar stage, it’s hard to tell. But they were carefully affirmative-action-quota culled to make up the minority colors of the PC narrative rainbow (yes, I know gays now own the rainbow, but I think I’m still allowed to use it in the Jesse Jackson-Clintonista sense). It figures that a Muslim chick from Ann Arbor was front and center in her sequined Muslim head scarf and bad pregnant-chick-looking tent of sequins dress, all paid for by the Academy. allahu movie crap.

Well, the long, self-absorbed Hollywood circle jerk fest is over. Until next year.

*** UPDATE: A couple of other things I meant to mention earlier:

* Cate Blanchett: I’m glad she won for Best Actress (for “Blue Jasmine”–read my review), but only because it is a huge slam on the whining, anti-Israel, HAMASnik Farrows–Mia and son Ronan–who won’t shut up about Woody Allen, when it seems that the allegations made by the Farrow daughter are wholly coached by a scorned Mia. You know what they say, hell hath no fury like an aged Mia skank scorned. I don’t believe the Farrows’ lies on Gaza and Israel, and I don’t believe ‘em on the alleged molestation of Dylan Farrow. I do, however, believe Moses Farrow, who says it’s all made up by a vengeful Mia. He’s been disowned by the other Farrows for daring to say so.

* Barkhad Abdi v. Jared Leto: I gotta admit that Somalian Muslim immigrant, Abdi, plucked from Minneapolistan limo driving, did a fabulous job as the Islamic terrorist, er . . . “poor pirate forced to do it by his unfortunate circumstances in “Captain Phillips” (read my review). I even voted for the guy for Best Supporting Actor, as a member of the Detroit Film Critics Society. However, I doubt this guy will ever work again in anything (other than some junky, foreign-financed, D-list movie sold mostly overseas). He was good for this one role–essentially playing his culture–and that role only.

But why didn’t Hollywood vote for the Somalian Muslim? Well, there’s only one thing Hollywood loves better than championing the “legitimate rights, resistance, and aspirations” of Somalian Muslims wielding guns and threats against infidels, and that’s a transvestite with AIDS, which Leto played in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Thus, the Abdi snub. So sad, too bad. allah willed it. Plus Hollywood doesn’t want to give an award to a Muslim for actually playing a Muslim terrorist. Too real. Too un-PC.

@Deb–

Possibly your best posting ever. Seriously.

Prometheus on March 3, 2014 at 9:21 am

    Agreed.

    Little Al on March 3, 2014 at 9:35 am

    In all fairness, the field was TARGET RICH. LOL

    Darrell L. Hicks on March 3, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    I agree. I’ve just moved Debbie S. to the top of my blog list.

    Dr.Frank.Lippenheimer on March 5, 2014 at 1:26 pm

I didn’t watch. They’ve become nothing but a pc/mc wallow and I don’t like Ellen. I read that a Muslim chick in a jibjab escorted people off stage. Couldn’t have seen that coming, huh?

Pray Hard on March 3, 2014 at 9:27 am

Debbie I know you removed me from your comments years ago, but you are my number one go to for all things political. This was spot on! After watching Walking Dead I switched over to the Oscars, more walking dead there also. Thanks so much for staying on top of all issues.

Carolyn mangum on March 3, 2014 at 9:33 am

I don’t get the comments about Liza Minelli. Before she had that awful facelift, people were always comparing me to her but I have never been compared to a transvestite. We’re almost the same age and for years I looked so much like her that when I saw a pic of her without makeup, I thought it was a picture of me my daughter dug up. I think she’s a lot taller than I am but her size is the only thing I can think of that makes her seem unfeminine, although I’ve never seen her in person so maybe her gestures and mannerisms? Transvestite performers like to do her but I never heard anyone say she looks like one.

Meira on March 3, 2014 at 9:48 am

highlights…Ellen Degenerate falls flat on her cumberbund as her Liza Minnelli joke crashes and Kim Novacs impresses with her natural aging facial features

HK on March 3, 2014 at 10:21 am

    I think that was absolutely disgusting of Ellen to make such a crass comment with Liza in the audience. Liza has had her issues but she has more talent in her pinky than Ellen will ever have.

    Meira on March 3, 2014 at 11:31 am

      Liza looked very nervous and genuinely uncomfortable… low blow by degenerate…..uncalled for

      HK on March 3, 2014 at 3:00 pm

The look on Julia Roberts’ prissy face just makes me nauseous

CharlesMartel on March 3, 2014 at 11:25 am

Nothing better than Hollywood making love to itself, for 4 hours ,is there?

CharlesMartel on March 3, 2014 at 11:28 am

I didn’t watch this year and never will again. What the Academy did to disqualify “Alone Yet Not Alone” as a nominated song was despicable and shows to Christians that their viewpoints and songs need not apply.

Concerned Citizen on March 3, 2014 at 12:04 pm

Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscar show was way, way funnier and more entertaining. See it on Hulu or wherever online. Debbie should link it.

FYI, I saw Saturday Night Live, with its Seth Meyers replacement. What a sad show. Nothing funny all night long. Maybe all of entertainment has to be “politically correct” these days and not question the government, but it sure ain’t funny or interesting.

BP: Didn’t think it was funny. In fact, Jimmy was weak. He’s now too into hanging with Hollywood, rather than mocking it. DS

Barry Popik on March 3, 2014 at 12:37 pm

    The Oscars along with every other awards show always suck and this one was no different!

    I thought Jimmy Kimmel was great as well. Fantastic interview with Kevin Spacey and both spoof movie trailers were hilarious… It still didn’t top last year’s Channing all over your Tatum performance, but an all around solid show!

    One more thing, if you guys are so sick of PC then I sighed you switch to a MAC!!! Alright alright alright

    Clayton on March 3, 2014 at 7:07 pm

The should do it on radio only, as they did before TV was invented (and NOT for this purpose).

JeffT on March 3, 2014 at 12:49 pm

Being a heterosexual man, I did not sit through the Oscars, but when my wife came home, she fast forwarded and I saw Matthew McConaughey’s speech, and I do have to appreciate his true love of G-d, not the standard, “thank you Jesus” that has become standard. I don’t think he was saying he was his own hero, but instead was expressing a person’s need to continue to set goals to do better in life, and that no one is ever good enough. Refreshing, actually.

Jonathan E. Grant on March 3, 2014 at 1:21 pm

I just stumbled upon this for the first time via a link from a NY Magazine article satirizing idiotic racist responses to the Oscars. I didn’t know people like you existed in my country, but I’m glad to see that you are a small minority who will never gain power (Sorry–Obama won by a landslide. Twice. Move someplace else). Anyway, thanks for the awakening, although since I’d never heard of you or people like you, I doubt it will ever matter much.

Lizzie Brooks on March 3, 2014 at 1:55 pm

    Lizzie is your father also your uncle?

    People like you who merely follow the masses struggle to understand people who think.

    Jonathan E. Grant on March 3, 2014 at 2:24 pm

      No, but I went to Harvard on a full scholarship and my father is an immigrant from South America. Doesn’t that just make your blood boil? :)

      Lizzie Brooks on March 3, 2014 at 2:28 pm

        Not really Lizzie, as I have met a lot of dumb bastards who went to Harvard, including the moron in the White House. Being a minority, of course Harvard gives you a scholarship. I certainly don’t care if your father is an immigrant, as my wife is also.

        I am sure that you were not a biochemistry major or a microbiology major as I was at Hopkins.

        Jonathan E. Grant on March 3, 2014 at 2:49 pm

          Maybe Lizzie is related to Joshua, the erstwhile contributor with the 160 IQ. And we also know that about 50% of students at Harvard are there on one kind of affirmative action program or another.

          And as long as I don’t have to pay for Lizzie’s scholarship, I couldn’t care less whether she went to Harvard or not. But maybe she did. Her lack of tolerance of dissenting opinions does fit in with Harvard’s mentality.

          Little Al on March 3, 2014 at 2:55 pm

          Ha! I was a Chemical and Physical Biology concentrator. But for the sake of this childish conversation, I bet you don’t have a PhD like I do.

          Lizzie Brooks on March 3, 2014 at 3:10 pm

          Lizzie, did you get your job through affirmative action also? I notice there is almost a 90 minute span between your first and final comments — a rather long lunch break. Who in the world would want to hire a loafer like that?

          Little Al on March 3, 2014 at 3:27 pm

          At Harvard, majors are called concentrations. Also–check your grammar, young man!

          Lizzie Brooks on March 3, 2014 at 5:57 pm

        Lizzie, that makes my blood boil to hear that your father was an immigrant from South America! Grrrr. Wow, I just threw something, I was so mad. And you went to Harvard, too? That makes me really, really mad. Man, you sure know how to stir things up in here.

        Burke on March 3, 2014 at 2:56 pm

          Stirring up racists was a fun way to spend my lunch break, but I think I’ve succeeded in getting my kicks. Enjoy your one-way trip to irrelevance in this country, everybody!

          Lizzie Brooks on March 3, 2014 at 3:13 pm

          Lizzie, I guess you either forgot to take any English courses at Harvard or else the Department there has degenerated even more than I thought. In your studying for your PhD were you ever taught the difference between “like” and “as”?

          Little Al on March 3, 2014 at 3:21 pm

          Lizzie, you either major or don’t major in a subject. There is no such thing as a concentrator. You are certainly did not major in the sciences. And a Ph.D. in anything but the sciences is pretty much a bull throwing degree.

          Jonathan E. Grant on March 3, 2014 at 3:31 pm

      JEG….she can’t help if she squeezed her douchebag too hard and brainwashed herself.

      I remember the good old days when we removed unsightly blemishes like her back when the agencies I worked for had balls and didn’t sell out to the whiney masses…..

      IceNoMore on March 4, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    Sorry to burst your Harvard bubble Lizzie but yes people like me do exist in this country. This “small majority” as you call it has seen through the lies of your “won by a landslide twice” hero Obama aka El Rodeo the Clown. He has done nothing but wreck this country in all aspects. Now we have Russia all but telling your hero to go fly a kite. The other funny thing is that we who post here know that there are people like you in this country. People that twice voted for the dimwit in the White House because he was Black, cool and hip. Whatever 2017 can’t get here fast enough for me so that the fumigation of the White House for President Ted Cruz can begin. You liberals won’t be able to stand that right Lizzie. Maybe after that happens you can take your own advice and “move someplace else”.

    Ken b on March 3, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    I like to get with dummies on here when they stretch truths or attack others without cause. BHO didn’t win by a landslide, it was close even with a guilty white lib running against him and then the storm hit. Kind of a test for the libs who didn’t pass the test so they got punished by more storms this winter and punch out criminals knocking the hell out of the same libs who voted for him. Not guys like me who would absorb the hit, seeing it coming, and return withering punishment.
    Electoral college looked like a landslide but it was close every place, so if more actual humans voted against the dead absentees, not to mention the military votes they subdued… Hope you enjoy watching russia make your boy look so bad. Missiles in Cuba, a great great job.

    samurai on March 3, 2014 at 4:47 pm

Anybody involved in Dallas Buyer Club should face life sentences for criminal perjury for endarging people lives by lying about Big Pharma which saves lives. In fact all lying movie maker should be facing criminal perjuries charges. The same should also apply to Journalist. Please note that the Marquis of Queenberry (the gay guide not his father) went to jail by saying Jew paid Churchill regarding Battle of Juntland.

madman on March 3, 2014 at 2:05 pm

The “Stars We’ve Lost” segment bothered me a bit. Shirley Temple was, perhaps, the greatest movie star of all time. Nothing special was done for her.

Philip Seymour Hoffman took drugs and died from it. Hoffman’s picture was placed at the very end, as if he was much greater than Shirley Temple.

Barry Popik on March 3, 2014 at 2:11 pm

I didn’t watch, as I have never watched and Oscar show, however I read today that 12 yrs a slave won and award, which I really didn’t want to happen, because its just going to encourage more producers and screen writers to make yet another “woeful, live in the past-that’s how blacks must be depicted film” again. As I’ve stated on here before, I cannot stand those movies and refuse to watch any of them.

They are depressing, drudge up the past, same ol story over and over again, its tiring. It would be acceptable if they (producers and writers) gave us one occasionally, but they don’t, ITS ALL THEY MAKE-Django, The Butler, 12 Years a Slave, ENOUGH ALREADY!

Big D on March 3, 2014 at 2:21 pm

I haven’t watched this garbage since about 1975. I have no interest in seeing a bunch of narcissistic, bed-hopping, left-wing, wackos giving each other awards for pretending.

Jeff on March 3, 2014 at 2:29 pm

i tired to be a good husband and watch this crap with the wife…

i hung in there about 20 minutes, pretended i had to go to the bathroom, and snuck off to do my german homework.

kirche61 on March 3, 2014 at 2:34 pm

I don’t have much use for all the damned awards shows. Egos stroking egos, that’s all it is to me. Those big name actors make millions for three months work. Oh how tough! And how hard is it when you get however many takes it takes to get it right? How many takes does a heart surgeon get? Or an ER doctor? Maybe for theatre where they have to get it right in front of a live audience every time, but not movies or TV.

Also, I strongly believe Woody Allen IS a child molester!

Red randy on March 3, 2014 at 2:51 pm

I haven’t watched the Oscars since Titanic won all those awards back in 1998. The fact that this show had Ellen Degenerate as it’s host was more than enough to turn me away. Maybe this is sexist of me but I can’t think of one single female comedian who is funny. Ellen is boring, Lisa Lampanelli is crude and nasty, and Margaret Cho is fugly and stupid. Say what you want about Liza Minnelli but it was stupid of the Degenerate to crack about her looks. This dullard looks like she belongs in a 90’s boy band. Quick someone call The Backstreet Boys because they’re missing one. I also saw the clip where Matthew McConaughey thanked God for his success. That had to have went over like a lead balloon with the rest of the Hollyweirdos. These people only worship themselves hence all of the different award shows. Also due to the political correctness that runs amok in Hollyweird I knew that either “Dallas Buyer’s Club” or “Twelve Years a Slave” would best picture. Hollyweird will never let Slavery go and the LoFo Obamabots will forever eat it up. The same thing goes for the fruit and nut LGBTPOSPDQ crowd. Hollyweird has to keep these guys/gals/whatever happy else they will have their bitch and moan boycotts. The only good thing about the whole night was that “The Butler” didn’t win anything. Stick that one up your fat racist wahzoo Oprah. Thanks for your take on the annual love me slobberfest aka the Oscars Debbie. You gave me something to laugh about all week. “My Cousin Vinnie’s” mariachi band…LOL!

Ken b on March 3, 2014 at 2:55 pm

I missed the Oscars but still I am bombarded with useless information about them.
Do I need the Oscars for pizza and idiotic selfies? No, and neither do these millionaire blowhards. Save it for the after-party or is the whole thing one de-constructed informal after-party now?
I don’t really know or care.

Somehow I get the sense the whole scene is deflating.
The glamour is long gone but the commodity market remains and they know it.

The best thing about the Oscars so far has been this column.

Frankz on March 3, 2014 at 3:08 pm

Bahahhahaha on all of it but especially the Abdi vs Leto piece!
We haven’t watched the Oscar’s in about 15 yrs and by some of what I read here, I’m glad I didn’t. Their little rainbow coalition would have probably sent my bottle of Pepto flying through the tv screen. And then it would have all come back up anyway.

Laura S. on March 3, 2014 at 4:13 pm

Lizzie, you have a Phd from Harvard and are involved in 12 year old like message forum wars? OK, your lunch break is over, get back to asking “You want fries with that?” before your Havard butt gets fired.

Jeff_W on March 3, 2014 at 4:15 pm

I didn’t watch as usual. Doubt I’ve seen any film nominated.

The awards are for people who don’t have the guts or smarts to say 99% of these films are overrated junk dumbed down for the masses.

It’s not that these films are bad because they are left wing pinko junk, it’s just they are bad, period, based on clichés people love to latch onto because they don’t think. And, nobody loves stereotypes as much as lefties/white bread people.

Jeff_W on March 3, 2014 at 4:24 pm

Well… last night, I was beta-testing “The Elder Scrolls Online” and while the gameplay was good the lag was annoying. Imagine if you were fighting a deranged cultist and somehow another cultist decided to jump you from behind and all of a sudden the whole action froze up on you at the most critical and most inopportune moment. This freeze would last up to 10 seconds – critical if you were trying to decide between “fight” or “flight”.

The way the gameplay was set up in ESO didn’t give you the “merciful” break when you would open up your inventory to grab a health-restoration drink and continue fighting. So the flight skills would come in handy if only you would be able to draw the cultists to other online players willing to dice and slice their way to the next level. The problem with this past weekend’s beta was that there were legions of people willing to take on the challenge.

FYI – I hardly rely on magic on my quests and would only use it as a force-multiplier or if a certain task required its use. Hence my online characters tend to be either steel-wielding warriors or mixed-arts templars. (I love my characters to be well rounded, with emphasis on swordplay, sharpshooting and stealth.) I also love my characters to have extra abilities such as cooking (or “provisioning” as it’s known in ESO) and smithing, both of which I was trying to improve.

I have to admit, the quests in the recent beta were pretty smooth and engaging, lag notwithstanding. Hopefully Bethesda and Zenimax can sort-out and fine-tune their servers come ESO launch.

As for the Oscars – only I know and care what’s good for me. At least with ESO, I know who is the star.

The Reverend Jacques on March 3, 2014 at 5:46 pm

Its called tenure :) Just like to see what the country’s underbelly is doing every once in a while! Lesson learned!

Lizzie Brooks on March 3, 2014 at 5:59 pm

    Lizzie, you really need to take a remedial English course. I think you mean: “It’s” called tenure. “Its” is possessive, and does not apply in the context of your comment.

    But I know that some Harvard graduates don’t know what century the Civil War was in, so even though I have doubts that you ever went near Harvard, given your near-illiteracy, it is not impossible, given the intellectual failures of all too many of its graduates, even some of the PhDs.

    Maybe you could learn something about grammar from the country’s ‘underbelly’, where obsolete subjects, such as reading, writing and arithmetic are still considered to have value.

    Little Al on March 3, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    Now Lizzie claimes to be a tenured professor? lol.

    skzion on March 4, 2014 at 9:38 am

Don’t sweat Lizzy too much. I do believe the girl is none too bright, whether or not she went to Harvard. Remember, Obama and Bush both went to Harvard, and neither of them had an ounce of horse sense between them. Harry Truman and Ron Reagan accomplished more than most of the recent Harvard schmucks that occupied the White House, including Kennedy.

Jonathan E. Grant on March 3, 2014 at 8:21 pm

I knew 12 years a slave would win. Of course. Just another example of PC horseshit.

Eric B on March 3, 2014 at 8:31 pm

Matthew McConaghey may have thanked God, but he’s still as Leftist as the rest of the crowd there.

CharlesMartel on March 3, 2014 at 9:55 pm

Degeneres, like virtually all dykes, is a miserable and humorless passive-aggressive.

DS_ROCKS! on March 3, 2014 at 10:04 pm

I don’t think leftist politics plays as significant a role in the actor/actress Oscar categories as many might seem to believe. Rather, there’s a principle based on the history of Oscar wins that gives certain actors and actresses a special edge, whenever such a principle arises.

That principle is this: if an actor or actress stars as a person with physical or mental disabilities, and does an effective job of portraying those disabilities, that star will have a decided edge toward winning the Oscar.

Thus, I was easily able to predict that Matthew McConaughey would win the Oscar this year for his portrayal of a man with AIDS and Kate Blanchard would win for her portrayal of a mentally ill woman.

For some more examples of this principle at work, consider the following:

Ray Milland, Lost Weekend, Alcoholism
Lee Marvin, Cat Ballou, Alcoholism
Cliff Robertson, Charley, Mental Impairment
Anne Bancroft, Miracle Worker, Blindness
Patty Duke, Miracle Worker, Blindness
Jack Nicolson: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Mental Illness
Jon Voigt, Coming Home, Paraplegic
Dustin Hoffman, Rain Man, Autism
Al Pacino, Scent of a Woman, Blindness
Daniel Day Lewis, My Left Foot, Cerebral Palsy
Geoffrey Rush, Shine, Mental Illness
Tom Hanks, Philadelphia, AIDS
Jack Nicholson, As Good as it Gets, Obsessive Compulsive
Jaime Fox, Ray, Blindness

There are some very rare exceptions to this principle, but the principle holds strong in the majority of cases.

Ralph Adamo on March 3, 2014 at 10:56 pm

you called it

great review of a crappy program.

General P. Malaise on March 4, 2014 at 12:08 am

Delicious! Thanks, Debbie.
P.S. I’ve also enjoyed reading the comments. Too bad that Lizzie – the Harvard educated lady with a PhD – doesn’t realize that the guy she voted for is an anti-American socialist. I’m an immigrant who spent three years in communist prisons (so my ‘PhD’ stands for Prison, Hope and Deliverance :) ) and this president’s policies remind me of Ceausescu, my former president. Our media worshiped him and called him The Genius of the Carpathians – just like the American MS Media worships Obama today. I cannot believe that educated Americans are willingly supporting a guy who is taking their freedoms away, who punishes the achievers and the hard-workers, rewards lazy bums, guts our military, disregards the Constitution, breaks his own laws, pisses off our allies, cozies up to our enemies and does many other harmful things to this great country whenever he’s not taking a vacation or playing golf… (although, even his leisure time adds many $$$ to our ever increasing debt.)
Oh, well… Now he has a chance to redeem himself a bit: it’s 3 a.m – Putin just called; is he gonna answer or continue to sleep and have another Benghazi nightmare?

Alex P. on March 4, 2014 at 2:41 am

    Great response, Alex P. Welcome to the site.

    As I recall, didn’t Ceausescu’s wife have many unearned degrees? If our little Lizzie is telling the truth–which I doubt–degrees would be as unearned as Mdme Ceausescu’s.

    skzion on March 4, 2014 at 9:45 am

“You make me dizzy, Miss Lizzy,” but not in the way writer Larry Willams had in mind.

Ralph Adamo on March 4, 2014 at 1:27 pm

Your tweets are some funny sheit!!! Never watch things like the Oscars… BUT next year I might – with the sound muted while reading your tweets. Could also be an adult beverage at hand.

You are right skzion – Elena Ceausescu had many unearned degrees. She was “doctor honoris causa” of many universities. She had a PhD in Chemistry, was an inventor and “scientist” who wrote books… although she barely finished elementary school.
She got all her fame and fake titles because this was easy to do in a Communist country where her husband was in control of everything. Our media worked hard to fabricate for her a glorious past, full of accomplishments. Obviously we knew the truth but people were afraid to say it out loud.
The bigger problem is: HOW IN THE WORLD WAS IT POSSIBLE THAT A SIMILAR THING HAPPEN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA??
To elect a president with a shady past and no accomplishments – in this free country – is a much bigger mystery to me. Nothing in his past can clearly prove that he is who he claims he is; nothing in his past can substantiate the assertion that he went to Harvard on his own merit; there is not a single article written by Obama before he became a literary genius to validate his supporters belief that he was capable of writing two best sellers in a short period of time.
But there are still plenty of people fool enough to believe everything media sells them. People with all kind of diplomas, degrees, PhD’s, etc. who should know better.

    Alex, it’s a funny thing but most Americans don’t understand how intellectual status can be fabricated. We don’t have the experience experience that citizens fromeformer sattelites have. Do stay around. Your take on things will be valuable.

      Sorry for my typos.

LOL!

You really went to town on the Oscars, Debbie!

They all deserved it, and you did a fantastic job doing it!

I’m still laughing!

What style, you have, and wherever do you come up with your highly descriptive phrases? They’re perfect!

I’m almost looking forward to next year’s Oscars, so that I can read you pan of them.

I don’t see how 12 years a slave has anything to do with modern racism. It was a depiction of field slavery in the Deep South, circa 1840. Even slaves with “good” masters were always on the edge of the abyss. I just didn’t see this having anything to do with modern racism, etc. It was entirely focused on (1) the tension between humanity and inhumanity and (2) the fundamental lawlessness of the antebellum South.

Used to watch the Oscars telecast to see who would “win” (as they called it in those days, not “goes to”) amongst the movies I had seen and enjoyed, back when the show was about the movies and the actors/actresses, directors, etc.
Nowadays, and for the last 20 years or so, it’s all about being PC, making idiotic statements for the rest of the Libtards to applaud, getting your name in the papers or on TV, post-Oscar, and so forth. Borrrrrrrrring, in the extreme!
I get plenty of Libtard BS from Prez Obozo, all day, every day; if one hopes to be entertained by the Oscars, Emmys, et al., forget it. Debbie put it succinctly: it’s one big circle-jerk and nothing more.
Oh, and poor Lizzie, here’s one for you, from a Vanderbilt grad: Once had a friend who went to Harvard; when I mentioned that I had attended and graduated from Vanderbilt University, he said “Oh, the Harvard of the South.” No, I said, you’ve got it all wrong: Harvard is the Vanderbilt of the North!

Lupita Nyong’o was born in Mexico, to Kenyan parents, and she was raised in Kenya from a young age. So she is Kenyan just like John McCain is American, not Panamanian.
