injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

“Vote for me.  Tits are free!”

Now there’s a campaign slogan to celebrate.  Okay, I made it up, but the story behind it is true. 

A Venezuelan politician is holding an unusual raffle to raise campaign cash. The grand prize: breast implants. For $6 a ticket, donors get the chance to win the pricey operation free of charge.

Gustavo Rojas, who is running as an alternate for the National Assembly in the Sept. 26th   elections, conceded that the prize for his fund-raising effort may be a little unusual, but “It's just like raffling off a TV set or a telephone,” he said.

Seriously, dude?  Ya think so?


Speaking of boobs…

In an interview on CBS' "The Early Show," Levi Johnston said that he wishes that he hadn't issued the apology to Palin for telling lies about her because he’s “Never lied about anything… and that apology kind of makes me sound like a liar.”

Johnstone needn’t worry about being thought of as a liar.  He’s recently filed papers to run for mayor of Wasilla – Sarah’s old gig.   As a politician, being a liar is pretty much a prerequisite. 

Johnston said he hopes to be a better mayor than Palin.   

Nothing like setting a nice low bar for yourself.


Elin Woods finally speaks out…

How many of you have been divorced?   Raise your hands…  And how many of you went through hell?   Hands up.   One, two three… A bunch of you?   Yeah, I thought so.

Now for the big question.   How many of you walked away with $100,000,000 for your trouble?

Look, I’ve got nothing bad to say about Elin.   I’m sure she did go through hell for nine lousy months.   So let’s do the math:  $100 mil divided by nine is… Oh, screw it.  You get my drift.   Plus she gets to look like that. 

If that’s hell, where do I sign up? 


And now some women who truly did go through hell...

In 1971, August 26th was designated by Congress to be “Women’s Equality Day” commemorating the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote.  A whole bevy of ballsy broads marched and fought for this right, which many of us take for granted, or worse – ignore altogether.  They were spat upon, beaten, jailed, and thrown into psych wards.  So this November, let’s honor their efforts by getting our asses to the polls and voting.

I know my (size 4) ass will be there. 

Saturday was the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous “I’ve Got a Dream” speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial…

From that speech:  

“And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.  It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream…. that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:  ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.’   Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.  We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline…”

From the two people the Tea Party holds up as their icons:

Glenn Beck:   “President Obama is a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture. This guy is, I believe, a racist."

Sarah Palin in response to Dr. Laura’s use of the “N” word:   “Don’t retreat.  Reload.”

If it's true that we are judged by the company we keep, I find the Tea Party's protest that they are not racists to be somewhat lacking in credibility.   But hey -- that's just me. 


And finally…

Naked man attempts suicide by hay baler after learning Bristol Palin may be joining “Dancing With The Stars…”

Okay.  Your turn…
