The Most Moronic Media Statements of the Week: Fake Jobs, Al Gore’s Bogus Science, and “Gay Icon” Levi Johnston

November 19, 2009

And The Winner Is:

Recovery.gov wins NewsReal’s Most Moronic Statement of the Week Award. The White House’s own web site actually claimed that in Arizona’s 9th Congressional District, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. There’s one problem, though: There is no 9th Congressional District in Arizona. Oops. Oh well, at least it was a transparent misstatement.

 

RUNNER-UP:

Father Earth, Al Gore places a close second. On the NBC ‘Tonight Show’ last Thursday, Gore shared his scientific analysis of geothermal energy with an eager audience. His facts, alas, were not only misstated, they were downright false:

“People think about geothermal energy – when they think about it at all – in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot …”

For the record, the interior of the earth is not ‘several million degrees.’ All science to date indicates the earth’s core is between 4000°C to 8000°C. The media yawned and Al Gore, once again, remained unchallenged.

 

SECOND PLACE:

Teen idiot Levi Johnson, the sperm donor for Sarah Palin’s grandchild makes our list for two breathtakingly moronic statements:

Johnston to Life & Style Magazine – “If I’m a gay icon, so be it. I guess it’s a compliment.”

The father of Sarah Palin’s grandson then rounded out the week by confessing to the world that he found Sarah Palin disgusting:

“I just look at her in disgust. … It’s almost funny, that she’s like, 46 years old, and she’s battling a 19-year-old, and I’m winning.”

Huh?

 

HONORABLE MENTION:

The New York Times told readers Saturday that Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try five Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainees in New York City was “a bold and principled step…toward repairing the damage wrought by former President George W. Bush.” Words fail.

 

Chris Matthews remains “unclear if religion was a factor” in the recent Fort Hood massacre.

“Its not a crime to call al Qaeda, is it?” Not according to the current administration, apparently.

Talk show hostess Joy Behar is of the belief that churches should be taxed because Catholics are working with Congress to get abortion restrictions in health bill. She stated, oops, misstated: “The majority in this country are pro-choice.” Behar needs to quit watching CNN – or stop drinking kool-aid.

In Monday’s New York Times, Paul Krugman argues that Tea Party protests in Washington represent the mainstream of the Republican Party and are part of a long history of paranoid politics in the United States. Inquiring minds want to know: Is it still paranoia if someone really is out to get ya?

Till next week, keep smiling.

    You go, Nance.
    Go to Recovery.gov and you find that the 45th congressional district of South Carolina, alone, saved 16 jobs with $1,070,000 in federal stimulus funds.
    Wow! That’s one of my favorite parts of the state! I savor the memories of lolling in a Pawley’s Island hammock while the tidal creek jumped with shrimp and pelicans wafted above the pristine salt marsh.
    The district is also known for its high paying jobs. Those sixteen people alone make $66,685 a year. Whew, dodged a bullet there.
    I was thinking of moving when I realized, “Wait! District 45 doesn’t exist.”
    The stimulus was supposed to arrest unemployment at around 8 percent. How’s that hope and change working out for you?

    These liberals do not have a clue, including what it takes to create entrepreneurial jobs.

    This is a very good news worthy blog. I enjoyed reading it, plus I learned of many interesting news items gems, such as that fake Levi Johnson dumb and dumber remarks about him being 19 years old and winning the word game against a 46 year old Sarah Palin.. Sarah is a class act whereas Johnson is a baffoon.. I look forward to reading your next blog…jeb

    Great overview. Simple, readable and informative. Fantasticjob of exposing the liberal’s less than truthful comments and remaining somewhat humorous. Keep up the good work. Can’t get enough of this!

    These are very entertaining quotes. It’s great that you dig these items out for the rest of us to read.

    It is worrysome that these “idiots” take themselves so serious and at the same time are equally clueless.

    A question I ask is; Are they “idiots” or do they have another agenda?

    The answer is probably some of each.

    Again very entertaining, funny, and important. Keep up the good work!

    We need more media exposure to blogs like this that speak clearly and expose the truth. Hopefully the word will reach enough of America before it is too late to save our country from the fate she seems doomed to experience. Another voice speaking out for mankind…thanks, Nancy.

    How pathetic..media is so blind and PC , looking thru dark glasses and keep right on lying like dogs and think we are dumb. well they can all make asses of themselves all they want an they can change their minds about even the healthcare bill. but, come next yr and forever they are history..you can put a ribbon on a pig but it is still a pig..feeding on our tax dollars and ready to destroy America. ignore the protestors that are sane and ready to take our country back without violence. trying to make them see, but they don’t care.some are probably not sleeping much these days, I even heard Biden say Palin was ok, well, who cares what he or any of these traitors think. I am sick to death of them. their day is coming and they will have to wave bye bye to their big checks, jets vacations, charge cards, their homes and all else. some have stolen so much from us they may hang on to some of their things they paid for. Everyting they do is against Our constitution but their day is coming. they are all coming down sooner than later. everything they have signed into law will be ripped to shreds…and their soul? they sold it for a bowl of soup..shame on them..they can pretend all they want. and we see what they voted for all these yrs. and anyone who signed onto a bailout is also out !! No excuse. sick of the lies and deceit. I can’t hardly wait !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nancy,
    Good article. Thank you. But, like all things toxic that come with a warning label, please alert us in advance if you have to use the words Levi Johnson more than once in the article. It was almost too much for me. I had yet to have my cup of coffee and, well, was unprepared to see Gore, Behar and Johnson grouped together in the same article. Can someone please slap the nonsense out of that little twerp. How much longer is the world to be punished with his diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain? A much better question is why the lame stream media is so attracted to this buffoon? Beyond what they perceive as a slap to Sarah Palin, the continuing use of Johnson goes beyond overkill into the area of extreme obsessional and delusional behavior.

  13. November 20, 2009 4:12 pm

    I predict the Levi Johnson will go the way of John Wayne Bobbit, another ‘Blue Boy’ centerfold.

    The more Joe Blow Biden talks, the more folks realize how much better a Vice President Sarah Palin would have made. Now on to the Recovery.Gov site issue. It cost Taxpayers $18 Millon to put that worthless piece of crap online, and the only jobs created or saved were the folks who came up with a site that puts out so much BS. Ok we now know that about 400 false Congressional Districts have been found to have received money. Since those Districts didn’t exist, what happened to the billions of dollars that was claimed to have been sent out to all those phoney districts? Could it be the money ended up in one of Obama’s Slush funds. Perhaps one for Obama Motors? Obama Motors dropped another $1 plus billion the past quarter and now claims they will be paying back the taxpayers even sooner. My guess or hunch is that taxpayer dollars are making like musical chairs. Going from Obama’s Slush fund to Obama Motors and then back to the Government coffers. After all, Obama doesn’t want his auto company to fail, and he will do just about anything even if its illegal to get them to succeed by hook or crook.

    Perhaps I sound paranoid, but we are dealing with a community organizer. Not someone who deserves to sit in the White House.

    Foxmuldar, above, makes an excellent point… he reminds us that Sarah Palin was taken to task because she wasn’t adequately qualified!! What a joke.. Look what we ended up with a Street Gang Organizer…who needs a telepromter to communicate .. and Joe Biden..
    Sarah did more for Alaska, in 2-1/2 years, than most career politicians accomplish in their lifetime .. She has demonstrated more integrity than the lot of them … That’s why she makes them so jittery.. They can’t intelligently respond — so they resort to ridicule.. Americans deserve better.. Starting with 2010 elections, let’s make sure they get better!!

    This is three cheers to Miss Nancy Morgan, a very articulate young lady and we need more with this unique ability to put words and actions together …………….briefly and making the point like a saber. Cogent ideas & combine with simple sentences, let’s find Nancy again, and SOON.

    Nice summary of stuff the mainstream liberal media does not mention. It may help open some eyes.

    ~~I am so happy that a fellow Compatriot forwarded this post to me .. Please publish more blogs contributed by Nancy Morgan… she shoots from shoulder — in a manner that is entertaining as well as informative — doesn’t pull her punches, does she?
    Uniquely awesome to have one location for Real News that reports the facts — the truth — that is sadly lacking in the lame-stream media. Jo
    PS: I’m signing up so I won’t miss a single issue!!
