Brutal parody of Ted Cruz’s spokesperson goes viral after being mistaken for a real statement - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism. As thousands of Texans go without power in the wake of an unprecedented winter storm, Sen.
Ted Cruz hopped on a plane to Cancun for a family vacation -- a decision that dealt him a considerable amount of backlash from people accusing him of being insensitive to the plight of the state he represents. Comedian Blaire Erskine decided to poke fun at the GOP senator with a parody video where she pretended to be his spokesperson, saying, "Um, yes -- Senator Cruz is in Cancun right now, but you know, here at his office we say big whoop. Senator Cruz deserves to relax, unwind, unplug, recharge, you know -- like you would a power outlet. " The parody video quickly racked up half a million views, but a number of people apparently didn't get the joke. Is this a joke??? The unmitigated gall of this smug little shit @CollinCrossie You should really change your bio if you can’t recognize satire. — Knancy (@Knancy)1613664974.0 .

Bad Lip Reading Takes On 'The Last Jedi' How ‘Horrible and Mean’ Men on ‘Last Comic Standing’ Made Iliza Shlesinger the Comedy Star She Is Today. Why Michelle Wolf Quit Telling Trump Jokes After the White House Correspondents’ Dinner—and Got Even Funnier. Michelle Wolf mentions the current president of the United States just once in her new Netflix special Joke Show.
The punchline comes near the end of her masterful hour-long set—and she doesn’t say his name. It’s been almost two years since Wolf broke into the stand-up mainstream with Nice Lady on HBO (deemed the best special of 2017 by this website) and just about a year and a half since she broke Washington, D.C., with her scathing White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech. After Wolf joked that she loved Sarah Huckabee Sanders “as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale” and complimented her “resourceful” approach to makeup by saying, “She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye,” prominent media figures on both sides of the partisan divide denounced her and even the White House Correspondents’ Association tried to distance themselves from her.
They haven’t invited a comedian back since. “It’s probably been the best year of my life,” Wolf says. I thought, good. RIP, TIM CONWAY. Tim Conway, one of the truly great comics, has left us.

Best 'Portlandia' Sketches: Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein, 'Put a Bird on It' Bill Maher calls Jared Kushner 'so stupid' he might as well be called 'Jared Palin'
Watch Portlandia’s Yuppies Plan the Perfect Breakfast 12 Hours Early. Peter and Nance, Portlandia’s resident slaves to yuppiedom, are going to have some new experiences on the eighth and final season of IFC’s hit sketch show.
In one scene, the husband and wife decide to optimize their favorite meal of the day, breakfast, by preparing it 12 hours before they wake up, so that everything will be ready to roll as soon as they shoot out of bed. Peter (played by Fred Armisen) practices walking into the room and saying “good morning,” while Nance (played by Carrie Brownstein) preps the oatmeal and French press coffee.
“I feel like a kid in a candy store,” she says as she’s setting up the kitchen in the dead of night. The duo’s plan ultimately works so well, that Peter and Nance decide to prolong the joy as much as possible by eating in slow motion. How To Create NPR’s Propaganda – As Seen In a Hit Piece Against Me. By Lee Camp Source: Naked Capitalism I never thought I’d be the target of an NPR attack piece.
Through my twenties I even looked to NPR as an outlet full of good, progressive, thoughtful reporting – You know, the soothing voices occasionally interrupted by music no one really listens to but that sounds good between soft-spoken ivy league journalists over the age of 50.

Chairman, I am against all foreign aid, especially to places like Hawaii and Alaska,” says Senator Fussmussen from the floor of a cartoon Senate in 1962. In the visitors’ gallery, Russian agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale are deciding whether to use their secret “Goof Gas” gun to turn the Congress stupid, as they did to all the rocket scientists and professors in the last episode of “Bullwinkle.” Another senator wants to raise taxes on everyone under the age of 67. He, of course, is 68. Yet a third stands up to demand, “We’ve got to get the government out of government!” Hahahahaha. That joke was a wheeze half a century ago, a cornball classic that demonstrates the essential charm of the “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends,” the cartoon show that originally aired between 1959 and 1964 about a moose and a squirrel navigating Cold War politics.
Theconversation. White nationalists and neo-Nazis are having their moment.
Former Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizard David Duke is back, yet again, in the media spotlight, while newer figures such as white supremacist Richard Spencer and Christopher Cantwell are broadcasting their views via social media feeds and niche internet channels.

Huffingtonpost. Huffingtonpost. Watch George Carlin and Bill Hicks Call Bullshit on the American Dream. People knew early on that George Carlin was an anti-establishment comic. He hosted the very first broadcast of Saturday Night Live and turned what could have been a family-friendly monologue into a searing indictment of American culture. Bill Hicks followed in the same tradition, eschewing the easy laugh in order to rip apart our national myths and expose the often sickening charade of democracy we see in popular culture and mainstream media. Between these two, we get what is undoubtedly the most important social satire since Mark Twain. 89 percent of the American public distrusts the government.

Olive Garden announced last year that it was getting rid of its famous slogan, "When you're here, you're family. " But the slogan isn't just going into the tagline graveyard -- it has found a new home. Last night, Dave George, the president of Olive Garden, "officially" signed away the slogan to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. It was an Olive Garden-Fallon love fest, in which all the audience members got free t-shirts with the new slogan and $100 gift cards to the restaurant.
