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

The last word on Terry Jones and it is sweet indeed…

The city of Gainesville, Florida is sending its most famous pyromaniac a bill estimated at $180,000 for security costs surrounding his threat to burn the Koran.   Due to the controversy and planned demonstrations, all 286 police and sheriff’s officers were called to duty to secure areas around the church in the days leading up to the planned event.   Jones had also told authorities that he’d received numerous death threats.

Apparently, Jones thought taxpayers would happily pick up the costs for his 15 minutes of fame.  "The church was not aware that we would be billed for security.  If we’d known this in advance, we would have refused it."  

Right.  Because what could possibly go wrong when people crowd together to protest the burning of a holy book?    See that’s the thing about hate-fests, dude.  They have a way of getting out of hand, and I don’t think your personal security was foremost in anyone’s minds.

Pay up.  


Separated at birth or product of demonic design…?

By now you’d have to live under a rock to not have heard of Christine O’Donnell, the Tea Party’s newest darling.  The Sarah Palin wannabe knocked off moderate Republican (now there’s an oxymoron) Mike Castle to win the Republican senatorial primary in Delaware this week.    I’ve long suspected those most vocally protesting the possibilities of human cloning had their own dark agenda.  

Apparently, this conservative cutie was quite the wild one in her younger days, admitting on the Bill Maher show to dabbling in witchcraft and once going on a date where they picnicked on a Satanic altar.   Then, of course, she had the requisite “calling," became a born-again Christian, and set out to rid the world of the one last pleasure even the poorest among us can afford -- masturbation. 

I wonder if “Abstinence Barbie” realizes how much her mentor, Sarah, values a good hand job. 


Just as the Tea Party is splitting the Republican party, so is the Tea Party itself being split – between those who want to interject issues like abortion, gay rights, prayer in schools etc, into the mix and those who insist that the Tea Party remain pure to its platform of economic issues, calling for a "truce on social issues in order to unite around fiscal ones."    

With far-right ideologues like Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum  flocking to the effectively leaderless Tea Party to push their Christian fundamentalist agenda this battle is going to get very interesting.


Because our appetite for the bizarre knows no bounds…

Behold “Bridalplasty,” a new reality series planned by E!   Each episode features a group of giddy brides-to-be who will compete in wedding-themed challenges like writing vows and be awarded different cosmetic surgeries for their efforts. 

As usual, one-by-one the women vote each other off the show and the last bride standing receives a “dream wedding” where… wait for it… “Viewers will witness the groom’s emotional and possibly shocked (possibly?!) reaction as he lifts her veil to see her for the very first time following her extreme plastic surgery.”   

Will you watch this show?   Personally, I can’t wait.   Because yes,  I am just that sick. 

The middle-class got a big gift this week when President Obama appointed Elizabeth Warren, a strong advocate for consumer rights and financial regulation, to take the reins of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau…

This plain-spoken, take-no-prisoners mother of two and former Sunday school teacher from Oklahoma has Wall Street peeing in their pants and Republicans popping Pepcid-AC like M&M’s.   

Listed in Time Magazine’s “World’s 100 Most Influential People” in both 2009 and 2101, Warren is also frequent guest on the Jon Stewart show as shown here. 

(Update:  Apparently this video has been removed for viewing.  Sorry.   But you can find clips of Warren on the Daily Show at Comedy
