Palin Watched SNL But Didn’t Listen

Sarah Palin watched the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler SNL sketch about her, but she had the volume down, so she didn’t hear a word. Still, she “thought it was hilarious”.

Gosh Sarah, you’re such a good sport. You’re grounded enough to recognize the hilarity of some New York comedienne looking just like you while not actually giving a shit about what she’s saying.

Brazil Has 6 Barack Obamas

Walk into a polling station in Belford Roxo, an impoverished city on the fringes of Rio de Janiero, on October 5 and you will be faced with an historic choice. You could vote for Alcides Rolim, the Workers’ Party mayoral candidate promising a “city for all” or Elizeu Pitorra, a local communist who believes it is “time for a change”. Most voters, however, will probably opt for Barack Obama, a 39-year-old Brazilian who, until recently, was known as Claudio Henrique dos Anjos.

In Brazil, candidates can run under whatever name they want. 6 candidates are running for office as Barack Obama.

Cremate Me or Else

Bruce Ivins, (very very probably) the anthrax mailer who recently committed suicide wished to be cremated. To make sure his wife complied with his wishes, his will stipulates that $50,000 should be donated to Planned Parenthood if he isn’t cremated. His wife is a former president of Frederick County Right to Life.

Funky Towel

For reasons unknown to me, the chorus of the song Funky Towel from the almost entirely forgotten movie Joe’s Apartment popped into my head.

Richard Marx Is a Sigur Ros Fan

Richard Marx is a big Sigur Ros fan. Sadly, he must auction off the tickets he bought for the Chicago show. Something came up. (Though he will be traveling somewhere else to catch one of their other shows. Perhaps Denver? If so, I hope to see him.)
