No sooner does he leave us all gape-mouthed by doing a thing like this…
Beck said he had been cautious about airing video from O'Keefe’s biggest previous sting, which targeted the liberal community organizing group ACORN, explaining "we wanted the raw video because we wanted to make sure that nothing has been taken out of context. I'm not going to Shirley Sherrod someone" — a reference to Breitbart’s posting of video excerpts that seemed to show an African American Department of Agriculture official in a speech expressing racist sentiments that – more complete video footage showed – she was actually renouncing.
"And not that I question James or anything else, I just want to make sure that it's right and that's what we did with The Blaze — just make sure that it’s right," Beck said on the radio Monday.
Then he follows it up by doing a thing like this…
Speaking [of the earthquake in Japan] on his radio show Monday, Beck said, "I'm not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes," before quickly adding, "I'm not not saying that either."
He then said that whatever one called God, "there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."
If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that he's getting the impression that we're desensitized to nonsensical things he says, so he has to throw in a few sensical things just to keep us on our toes.

Mad Magazine is getting to release the "Mad 20" — a list of the nineteen or so dumbest people, things and events of the year — in its new issue, to hit news stands on December 22.
As it turned out, "The Firing of Shirely Sherrod" (remember that?) from back in July made it all the way to #7, and Mr. Neuman, et al., were kind enough to think of us and send over this sneak preview…

Vacation, all [Jon] ever wanted. Vacation, [Jon is] happy to get away. But catching up with all the work can be a hassle. There are papers to be filed in the paper filing system, staples to be put into… stapling filing systems. Listen, I clearly don't know what normal people do in offices.The point is, it's no different for Jon Stewart returning to The Daily Show. The news never stops, even during their holidays and breaks, and some politicians have even taken advantage of that fact.
Case in point, Sarah Palin resigned as the Governor of Alaska on July 3rd to avoid the media coverage. And everyone was able to retain all their respect and admiration for her as a result and no one mentioned it ever again. Or the opposite.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

Shirley Sherrod Will Sue Andrew Breitbart for No Very Good Reason (Except for That One Very Very Good One)
Aha! Finally, we have some real proof that Shirley Sherrod is intent on keeping the white man down.
Or, at any rate, a white man…
Former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod said she will sue conservative Andrew Breitbart for posting an edited video of her on his website that portrayed her as making racist remarks.
According to the Associated Press, Sherrod made the announcement today in San Diego at the National Association of Black Journalists annual convention. The details of the lawsuit were not immediately clear.
Funny how she decided to announce this at a convention for the National Association of Black Journalists and not the National Association of White Journalists, isn't it? And someone please tell me precisely why she is suing white person Andrew Breitbart and not any of the black people who have knowingly posted heavily-edited videotape of her to their conservative websites in the past year. And, isn't it interesting how she has decided to sue him in a court of law instead of buy him an ice cream soda in a nice quaint little country cafe?
Could it be because her actions are racially motivated? How much more evidence do you people need?
