Sarah Palin is retarded. She said “Nucular” – instead of the correct word, “Nuclear” –twice in last night’s VP debate with the awesome Joe Biden. Sadly, we all know who else says “Nucular,” and god knows he can barely talk his way out of a paper bag. Maybe the Republicans are trying to start a trend where, if the word is mispronounced enough times by people in the spotlight, that incorrect pronunciation is adopted by society and therefore becomes accepted as correct? Jesus god help us. Anyway, here’s my favorite, humorous editorial about last night’s debate and what a gross douche Palin is, from The Huffington Post: Michael Seitzman: Sarah Palin Naked.
Last night Geoffrey and I went to see Collective Soul and Live at the Hammerstein Ballroom, because my friend Ryan plays drums for Collective Soul and he got us in for free. So don’t even start with me. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve seen Live about a hundred and fifty times since Mental Jewelry was released and every single one of their shows has blown the top of my head right off. Honestly, Live is one of the best rock bands around even if they haven’t had a hit record in ten years. I’d rather see Live in concert a million billion times than Fallout Boy or any one of those shitty modern alternative crap ass emo bands that can’t stop whining about their feelings for one second.
But one thing that really bugs me about seeing Live, well, live is that Ed Kowalczyk lets his retarded-acting younger brother, Adam, tour with the band as a rhythm guitarist, and the guy is obviously suffering from delusions of grandeur that are just way out of control. Watching Adam try to take over the stage and turn it into “The Adam Kowalczyk Show” is something that must be seen to be believed. While Live’s REAL guitarist, the understated and brilliant Chad Taylor, stands in the shadows and plays his ass off, Ed’s retarded brother charges up to the front of the stage so he can hang around with Ed, like he’s the star of the fucking band! He, literally steals the spotlight from Ed, spazzes out like a mental patient and does karate kicks like he’s Dennis Dunaway or something. It’s insane.
Here’s what I want explained to me: since when do touring guitarists that do not even record with the band take the spotlight away from a group’s iconic lead singer? If anybody deserves a spotlight it’s the guitarist, bassist or drummer in Live that helped the band sell 8 million copies of Throwing Copper, the single greatest album of the alternative era! Dude, get over yourself! You’re not even an official member of the band! You’re only up on that stage because your older, more successful, infinitely more talented and way better looking older brother feels sorry for you. Earth to Adam Kowalczyk: This is a Reality Check. Come in. Over
I try to avoid getting political on this blog, because I am all about The Rock, but Ann Coulter really makes me wish that I had an iron fist so I could smash her stupid face in. The only thing scarier and more vile than this conservative nutjob freakshow are the idiots and morons who think this woman even has the ability to talk sense.
