On the Lighter Side...

Because some stuff is too funny not to share. Here’s a roundup that’s equally offensive to those all across the political spectrum:

Jim Geraghty wonders “DO TERRORIST GROUPS HAVE MARKETING CONSULTANTS?”

Regarding one specific terrorist group of Kurdish separatists in Turkey, he asks:

How did "KONGRA-GEL" (Kurdistan People’s Congress) ever get past the focus groups? It sounds like a hair care product.
And then concludes:

The marginal good news here is that the more time a group spends sitting around debating its name, the less time they spend plotting to kill people.

Speaking of terrorism, the Onion presents The Fox News Terror Alert Van. (I especially like the “Honk if you see Terror Happening” message on the back of the van.) And here's the intro to the "story":
MURFREESBORO, TN—Touting itself as "the only channel with a terror-alert system designed to meet the specific needs of central Tennessee," Fox News affiliate WMFB-TV Channel 11 debuted its terror-alert van Monday.

I thought I noticed a bit of a familiar pattern emerging with Mr. Delay's positioning of himself into an easily mocked parody of… himself. Scrappleface has the scoop in this story titled, "Gingrich Sues Rep. DeLay for 'Demon' Infringement."
(2005-03-30) -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich today filed a lawsuit against current House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-TX, contending that Mr. DeLay has infringed on Mr. Gingrich's "brand and service marks by positioning himself as the number one target of the Democrat party."

Following a quote from Howard Dean at a recent speaking engagement in Tennessee, Mickey Kaus paraphrases the crux of Dean’s sentiment in trying to appease red state voters:
'There, there, you worried irrational people. My pollster's told me about you. We're on your side, however illogical your pathetic little fears!' ... From vilification to condescension. This is progress in the Democratic Party.

And lastly, some words of wisdom from Vanilla Ice regarding his place in history:
As for music and my place in it, maybe things are changing a little bit. I know this: a good song is deeper than a tattoo. It'll remind you of the car you're driving and the girl you're going around with and the streets you're cruising. It's better than a photo album. A song is a tattoo that you never lose. 'Ice, Ice Baby,' man, you'll remember that when you're 90.

'Ice Ice Baby' at age 90. Nice. Something to look forward to. Hopefully, I'll still be ready to belt out some karaoke in my old age. Rollin'...
