As Twitchy reported, actor and comedian Will Ferrell took on the role of Obamacare shill. Laura Ingraham pointed out just how “funny” that was.

http://twitter.com/#!/brithume/status/395561880334643200 In October, Fox News’ Brit Hume nailed the devastating reality of Obamacare with that tweet. Months later, he appears tickled to discover that his words have received the meme treatment. http://twitter.com/#!/brithume/status/436697031986655232 Uh oh. Is Hume dipping his toes in the meme-sturbatory #Fugelsanging pool? http://twitter.com/#!/BigJebBos/status/436698192055640065 Nah.

Here’s the only thing MSNBC is missing in its ‘rah-rah war coverage’ [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/Popehat/status/514453592900927488 It’s not funny, because it’s true. Well, MSNBC totally thinks war is awesome now, guys. But its cheerleading-palooza needs a little something. @ExJon to the rescue! MSNBC's rah-rah war coverage is fun to watch. All they're missing is an animated screaming eagle with blood-soaked talons. — jon gabriel (@exjon) September 23, 2014 Aching. Sides. @exjon the constant "pew, pew, pew" from the anchors, however, is a bit distracting. — mr. big dubya (@mrbigdubya) September 23, 2014 Stop it! No, don’t. Please go on. @exjon Obama's war […]

http://twitter.com/#!/jrsalzman/status/439541557629169664 In 2008, Sarah Palin was mocked for suggesting that the election of Barack Obama could result in Russia invading Ukraine. It now seems Palin’s prediction is coming to fruition, in an “uncontested arrival” kind of way. Blake Hounshell, a former editor of Foreign Policy who is now an editor with Politico, called Palin’s prediction an “extremely far-fetched scenario” at the time. Now that it’s not so far-fetched, Hounshell nevertheless is playing it snide: http://twitter.com/#!/blakehounshell/status/439540945626095616 Probably best just to say nothing at this point: http://twitter.com/#!/joseph_highley/status/439542853576830976 http://twitter.com/#!/eli_mari78/status/439539849885134849 Hounshell […]
