The Top 10 Conservative Idiots, No. 351


The Top 10 Conservative Idiots, No. 351

September 8, 2008
Country Club First Edition

At the end of last week's Top 10 I said we'd be back to normal this week. I'm sorry to report that I lied. It turns out that the Republican National Convention generated such vast quantities of bullshit, I just didn't know where to begin, so this week please enjoy the Top 10 Conservative Idiots National Republican Convention Recap. For those of you who are still stuck with dial-up, I'm truly, truly sorry. You might want to make yourself a cup of coffee while this page loads.

Monday






Tuesday


















Wednesday


















Thursday















Back to normal next week, I promise! See you then...

-- EarlG

5. Zombie Alfred Hitchcock????
Remember that the real Hitchcock tried to convince at least one of his leading ladies to have an affair with him (Tippi Hedren) and when she refused, he wrecked her career.

Funny that Palin will try to wreck the career of McCain, by giving him the fatal heart attack he's been courting all this time, and taking over the country.

15. Naah. Just got a biography by a man names Spoto about Hitch.
Says that he was sexually repressed; he was a British Catholic. I think someone said "he thought everybody was doing something naughty behind every closed door...except him." That's why his latter movies contained a lot of tortured, raped and killed women, especially Frenzy.<\i> A truly screwed-up man.

27. Take everything in that Spoto biography with several huge grains of salt.
There are much more reputable Hitchcock biographies out there - Patrick McGilligan's for one.

And, on the subject of this thread: just seeing that parade of clowns angries up the blood! I was truly baffled to hear that the worst speech I've ever heard, delivered in the most annoying voice I've ever heard, was in fact a hit in some quarters. (That's Palin's I'm talking about.) Good speech bubble work!

37. Bush's balloons
If you managed to list all of Bush's failures in this way, you'd have more balloons than the actual convention.

18. Grammar and Punctuation cop here
Glad to know I'm not the only person who noticed some dodo misspelled "maverick." Considering McCain's still trying to sell himself as one, you'd think they'd have been clued in by now. And Cindy McCain so looked like an aging trophy wife--complete with the gilding. Yikes!

Thanks for that recap of the convention - I couldn't stomach the thought of watching it, but I'm sure your version is a lot more fun! They should have just called it the Conservative Idiots Convention...

58. `member when Gore was criticized for looking a bit too orange?
That was during the 2000 debates.

Sleepy Fred looked just as bad and the Cons have been saying that Sleepy gave his best speech ever.

I don't hate Republicans. I just haven't had the right brain injury required to understand them.

It's next week, so where are the pearls of wisdom from Earl G? He said he would be back this week, and I pray that he is okay. Did I miss something? I need my weekly read, and he pulls it all together so well. :)

He also said not to be surprised if the Top Ten goes on hiatus soon, his wife's about to have their first baby.

I am happy to hear the Earl G is just ill, and hasn't been spirited off in the middle of the night , a la the KGB.

And I hope the babe is born healthy and happy, and mom is healthy and happy, too! (Dad doesn't get too much credit other than being a coach and having sympathy pains. Sorry, Earl G.)
