Michelle Bachmann’s Got Jokes

February 10th, 2011 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

Watch the speech Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) gave today at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), in which she pokes fun at her SOTU response gaffe, manages a pun on Chinese President Hu Jintao’s name that no one’s ever made before, and invites all of her college-aged groupies–some of whom are presumably underage–to “party hardy” with her later:

But, hey, at least Bachmann knows her math:

“There’s a difference between millions and billions. But there’s an even greater difference between billions and trillions.”

Mind is blown.

Because, seriously, Bachmann-as-the-Human-Calculator is pretty impressive, Continue reading Michelle Bachmann’s Got Jokes

What Bristol Palin’s Success On DWTS Forecasts For 2012

November 22nd, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

As Bristol Palin heads into the finals of Dancing With the Stars tonight, everyone wants to know what her being in the top 3, despite consistently receiving the worst scores from the judges–and the fact that she could, like, OMG, “totally win”–means in the big picture. You know, the big picture of Tea Parties, Mama Grizzlies, and unseating a Socialist President in 2012?

Does it mean the Tea Party is more organized than non-wackjob political, er, establishments?

Does it mean there will be more voter fraud in 2012?

Does it mean Sarah Palin will be our next Mama Grizzly-in-Chief???

DISGWITTER OF THE WEAK! @SarahPalinUSA And Her “Refudiations”

July 19th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

After telling President Obama that he should “refudiate” the NAACP for calling the Tea Party racist and advising “peaceful” Muslims via Twitter that they should “refudiate” plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero, Sarah Palin was roundly mocked for her refudiation of the English language, which led to her refudiating her refudiators and likening her penchant for malapropism to…Shakespeare.

As lovers of The Made-Up Word ourselves, we’re not ones to refudiate Sarah Palin. But because we’re a caring people, we’d like to kindly suggest that, from now on, Palin take a page from her beloved Tea Party’s handbook to avoid future embarrassment:

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Mark Williams, The Tea Party Express’ Non-Racist Racist

Having read and re-read and re-read and re-read the “parody letter” that Tea Party Express talking head Mark Williams wrote to Abe Lincoln in the voice of NAACP President Ben Jealous, speaking for “The Coloreds,” I’ve got to say:

I DON’T GET IT.

In an effort to defend the Tea Party’s position that it isn’t racist, Williams cleverly decided this week to turn the tables on an, uh, obvious target: the NAACP. He called them out for being “racist” (Naturally!) due to the fact that the 99-year-old organization’s name still includes the word “colored.”

In case you aren’t familiar with the NAACP, I’ve included their mission and vision statements below:

We at DISGRASIAN hate to lend any more attention to the Tea Party–they’re a fringe Continue reading DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Mark Williams, The Tea Party Express’ Non-Racist Racist
