Meet the New Barack Obama!

Words fail to cover it:

Actually, a few words cover it; Some working at the WaPo are blithering idiots!

The single mother of octuplets born in California last week is seeking $2m (£1.37m) from media interviews and commercial sponsorship to help pay the cost of raising the children.

Nadya Suleman, 33, plans a career as a television childcare expert after it emerged last week that she already had six children before giving birth on Monday. She now has 14 below the age of eight.

Although still confined to an LA hospital bed, she intends to talk to two influential television hosts this week — media mogul Oprah Winfrey, and Diane Sawyer, who presents Good Morning America.

Her family has told agents she needs cash from deals such as nappy sponsorship — she will get through 250 a week in the next few months — and the agents will gauge public reaction to her story.

Access to a blog and a webcam probably contributed to the on-line suicide of Abraham Biggs Jr, 19, said Dr Jon Shaw, director of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of Miami School of Medicine.

Biggs, of Pembroke Pines, in Florida, took a lethal mixture of three drugs on Wednesday, then blogged about it while a webcam broadcast his actions, including his death.

“There’s an exhibitionistic quality to this, a strange dance between the suicide and the audience. He’s doing it for the group in a very complicated process we don’t really understand. Would he have carried it out without the audience? Probably not.”

And you know this how “doctor?” Using that logic how do you explain hundreds, if not thousands, of suicides each year that are not witnessed and only discovered after the fact?

Dr Jon Shaw, you’re a nitwit. But hey, you got your name in the paper.

Well you can’t get too much dumber than this. On the other hand she is, or WAS, a “reporter” for a MSM outlet.

Detroit news radio station WWJ-AM (950) has fired radio personality Karen Dinkins after she wore a Barack Obama T-shirt while covering a presidential rally last weekend.

Dinkins, contacted at her home, said she is surprised about the reaction to her firing after Sunday’s rally at the Detroit Public Library. She said a number of news outlets contacted her after the station let her go on Monday. She said she had worked there for 13 years.

“I was really kind of surprised this is a news story,” she said, adding that she wouldn’t comment further. “I didn’t anticipate it.”

Bet she would be surprised to also learn there is a little thing adhered to by the Society of Professional Journalists called a Code of Ethics that includes this tidbit of information: “Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.”

A 13 year career up in smoke all because of an obsession with The ObamaMessiah.

Fuck PETAAs expected the nutcakes at PETA have jumped on death’s bandwagon.

After the injury to filly Eight Belles in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby and being euthanized on track following her second-place finish PETA spokes-fruitcake Kathy Guillermo claims there should be an investigation of the incident and if needed the jockey suspended.

PETA faxed a letter Sunday to Kentucky’s racing authority claiming the filly was “doubtlessly injured before the finish” and asked that Saez be suspended while Eight Belles’ death is investigated.

“What we really want to know, did he feel anything along the way?” PETA spokeswoman Kathy Guillermo said. “If he didn’t then we can probably blame the fact that they’re allowed to whip the horses mercilessly.”

What us normal people want to know is where do these people come from? Does PETA offer recruiting drives for new members on Mars? Or the more appropriate Uranus!

Do they send “short buses” to mental health units across the nation as part of a yearly membership drive?

Wonder what would happen if the People for the Edible Treatment of Animals let it be known the dead horse would be used to feed 5,000 thousand starving kids in Bangladesh?

Would they applaud the move, or would their heads explode like the liver of a force-fed goose in the production of foie gras?
