This video is brilliant.

Kudos to JewsVote.org for their bold move, calling on young Jewish folks to “schlep” to Florida to get their grandparents to vote for Obama. And Sarah Silverman? A perfect choice.

It’s daring, to be sure…

Check out The Great Schlep for all the details. Happy schleping!

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. It’s not getting better, is it?

Well, yesterday Roger Ebert kept at it with a scathing review of Palin as the VP candidate for the Republican party. It’s worth a read. Here are a few lines from his post:

Although Palin gets laughs when she mentions the “elite” Ivy League, she sure did attend the heck out of college. Five different schools in six years. What was that about?

Sarah Palin’s travel record is that of a provincial, not someone who is equipped to deal with global issues.

I want a vice president who is better, wiser, well-traveled, has met world leaders, who three months ago had an opinion on Iraq. Someone who doesn’t repeat bald- faced lies about earmarks and the Bridge to Nowhere.

You go, Roger! Thinking of making the switch from movies to politics?

I don’t believe in God. Take it or leave it, that’s my view. I do, however, think this is a very interesting video.

In the words of Ricky Ricardo: Lucy, you got some ‘splainin’ to do.

Also for your listening pleasure, Thou Shalt Always Kill. I like these guys (though I hate the fact that they use a myspace page…myspace pages are, well, geez you know).

Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip, you rock!

My goodness, the shenanigans going on with the news media these days! Did you hear about Fox & Friends and their doctored photos of New York Times reporters? Mon Dieu!  This kind of behaviour is appropriate in high school (just barely), not at national news organizations.

To sum up: Some guys at the NYT (Jacques Steinberg and editor Steven Reddicliffe) were responsible for an article that was printed on June 28th that said there was an “ominous trend” in Fox News’ ratings. Yes, the New York Times is not a huge fan of Fox, they haven’t kept that a secret. Anyway, some guys at Fox (Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade) went live with a bit of a rant about the issue and called Steinberg and Reddicliffe “attack dogs” while featuring photos of the NYT staff with some interesting digital alterations.

To catch yourself up on everything head over to Media Matters. They have the video too.

On to Vanity Fair, they jumped on the chance to get involved with a little creative editing of their own with Photoshop of Horrors: The Frightful Faces of Fox News. *chuckle*

So I am smirking my way through their edited images and then start wondering exactly what edits were made.  VF skipped the before and after and just queued up a slideshow of the dreadful after photos.  What to do? Googling everyone’s names would just be a hassle. Oh, if there was just a search engine that could identify the images even with the edits and uses pictures as the query instead of text! Hmm.

Here are some of the VF article images along with the originals that I easily found with just a few right clicks.
