@AngryBlackLady slams Jim Messina for praising ‘free’ contraceptives

http://twitter.com/#!/Messina2012/status/461321261239386112 That’s the latest example of unicorn-magic hope from Jim Messina, campaign manager for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff. We expected to write a post lamenting that all the liberals on Twitter agreed with Messina. But we were wrong.  @AngryBlackLady (no fan of Twitchy!) understands full well that government-mandated health insurance benefits aren’t free: http://twitter.com/#!/AngryBlackLady/status/461358083772395520 http://twitter.com/#!/AngryBlackLady/status/461358243244036097 Welcome to the club. Update: Oh look! I’ve been Twitchied again! This time for providing facts about “free” contraceptives under […]

Did Piers Morgan just reveal the ‘silver lining to a USA loss’ in the World Cup?

http://twitter.com/#!/Mr_Fastbucks/status/479729000340676608 Indeed. And, well, normally we’d be pretty pumped about that. Yeah, yeah … we know it’s soccer, but American exceptionalism is American exceptionalism! As it turns out, though, there’s a really strong case to be made for the U.S. taking a nosedive: http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/479721363016806400 Ooo … http://twitter.com/#!/BrianFaughnan/status/479721693246926848 So, if we’re understanding him correctly, there’s no chance of Piers returning to England if the U.S. does better. Is that right? http://twitter.com/#!/lachlan/status/479721962944888833 Does that mean that if the U.S. […]

Reports: Iraqi PM Maliki resigns

http://twitter.com/#!/sshatipoglu/status/500007966788300800 Just in. http://twitter.com/#!/mrfabrizi/status/500004055394291712 http://twitter.com/#!/SarahJReports/status/500008755522961408 Twitchy will update as news develops.

Baby got gaffe: Was this Hillary Clinton’s most ‘garbage snake’ idiocy yet?

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/517817935424151552 But don't politicize the baby you guys… RT "@DRUDGE_REPORT: 'GRANDMOTHER GLOW'… http://t.co/cXZxq9jf3X" — LittleMissRightie (@LilMissRightie) October 2, 2014 Heh. Shocker! This happened: Clinton, who joked that she felt that glow after the recent birth of her first grandchild, Charlotte, said she wanted all women to grow up in a world of “full participation and shared prosperity.” “I think my granddaughter has just as much God-given potential as a boy who was born in that hospital on […]

Here is a snark-tastic bright side to the Obama, Big Papi viral selfie

http://twitter.com/#!/DrinkingDad/status/451045261201375232 Gasping! Oh, the humanity. As Twitchy reported, 2013 World Series winners the Boston Red Sox hit up the White House today. While there, David “Big Papi” Ortiz took a selfie with President Obama that instantly went viral. http://twitter.com/#!/SamsungMobileUS/status/451034331046502400 Indeed. It didn’t quite ruin baseball for everyone. In fact, this Twitter user thought of a political bright side as well: http://twitter.com/#!/Matthops82/status/451033717944094720 So, there’s that!

David Draiman calls BS on Macklemore’s excuses for ‘anti-Semitic gimmick’

http://twitter.com/#!/OandAshow/status/468698768506757121 Rapper Macklemore claims he wasn’t going for a “Jewish caricature” when he cobbled together the disguise that has accusations of anti-Semitism zipping around social media. http://twitter.com/#!/macklemore/status/468593904913096704 He released a fauxpology blaming the media and just about everyone else for misunderstanding his oh-so-brilliant attempt at “random” ambiguity. As it turns out the fake noses they sell at the costume store are usually big (my nose didn’t fit most of them). So I ended up with a big witch […]

‘Happy place’: Emmys viewers can’t unsee ad for Depends

http://twitter.com/#!/blowryontv/status/504066608164114432 Something tells us NBC expected a different demographic for Monday night’s Emmy awards than MTV did for last night’s Video Music Awards. That something is the advertisements, which caught a few by surprise. http://twitter.com/#!/Matt_Rust/status/504076732400672768 http://twitter.com/#!/ChristeneCarr/status/504066627642851328 http://twitter.com/#!/ventalation/status/504066395492319233 http://twitter.com/#!/HAlanScott/status/504066502018887680 http://twitter.com/#!/Amy_Ruthie/status/504066324214325248 http://twitter.com/#!/makhondlovu/status/504066726007291905 Well, Perez Hilton enjoyed it. http://twitter.com/#!/PerezHilton/status/504066174473469952 What do the professionals think?

http://twitter.com/#!/Eharrington1/status/522754497358352384 Yesterday Twitchy reported on a mystery man on the tarmac at DFW airport assisting Ebola victim Amber Joy Vinson board the CDC jet to Atlanta who was, surprising us and lots of others on Twitter, not wearing a hazmat suit: So… as the patient is transferred… what's up with the dude with the clipboard?

Jeanne Shaheen’s chicken stalker told to cease and desist flapping

http://twitter.com/#!/tracysefl/status/501486235786170368 Well, we at Twitchy certainly got a kick out of that photo of New Hampshire Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen being stalked by a giant chicken for reportedly being too cowardly to participate in town hall meetings. Here it is again: http://twitter.com/#!/RyanGOP/status/500066613748830210 More such photos might be out of the question, as WMUR reports that the man in the chicken suit has been arrested for disorderly conduct. http://twitter.com/#!/reidepstein/status/501485737490251776 A 23-year-old state Republican Party staffer tasked with wearing […]
