Hey girl, I just ate a corn dog. Don't ask. Don't tell.

* Hey girl, you heard about Paul Ryan Gosling?
* Some possible Romney/Paul campaign slogans.
* Nothing is funnier than an unintentionally funny anti-drug PSA.
* The Campaign is breaking box office records for political movies.
* Andy Borowitz at The New Yorker found a leaked memo from Romney to Ryan.
* In spite of the fact that Paul Ryan loves Ayn Rand, here's a compelling defense of Atlas Shrugged.
Zach Galifianakis knows politics like he knows the skin on the back of his lily white thighs. In his and Will Ferrell's upcoming film The Campaign, Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow play right-wing political donors named the "Motch Brothers." This led some savvy smartypants to suggest that the movie was poking fun at the Koch brothers. Bingo. It's almost like you can't fool some of the people all the time anymore.
Then Galifianakis confirmed the correlation…
"I disagree with everything they do. They are creepy and there is no way around that. It's not freedom what they are doing," Galifianakis said.
Yikes. Only someone who knows what it's like to be punched by Mike Tyson would dare take such a swipe at two of the most influential industrialists this country has ever seen. You may think the Koch brothers are too busy huffing fossil fuel and throwing darts at Obama's photograph to be concerned with what liberal Hollywood thinks of them, but never underestimate the amount of free time billionaires have to Google themselves and have their spokesman give a statement…
"Last we checked, the movie is a comedy. Maybe more to the point is that it's laughable to take political guidance or moral instruction from a guy who makes obscene gestures with a monkey on a bus in Bangkok," said Philip Ellender, referring to a scene from the movie "The Hangover Part II."
It's even worse than I imagined. The Koch brothers also have enough time to watch The Hangover Part II. Maybe if Galifianakis keeps making sequels to that franchise, liberals can distract them enough to indoctrinate everyone with their political and moral message. God knows a man who makes obscene gestures with a monkey on a bus in Bangkok is less moral than a man who obscenely puts a dog on a car all along the Eastern Seaboard.
