St. Patrick’s Day is Coming and There’s No One as Irish as Barack O’Bama

Turns out the Commander-in-Chief is more than African American, he’s also... Irish? Yep, apparently Barack Obama is 3.1 percent Irish. Irish Americans are waiting for Barack Obama to embrace his heritage: his great-great-great-grandfather Falmouth Kearney. Kearney was an Irish immigrant who came to America in 1850, from Moneygall, a small Irish village west of Dublin.

“God bless Falmouth Kearney, he married into good stock. It’s been a wonderfully pleasant surprise,” said American Ireland Fund President Kieran McLoughlin. “And now the main platform to showcase that [connection] occurs in about a week.”

What McLoughlin is no doubt referring to is St. Patrick’s Day. Its unlikely that Obama will be getting drunk on green beer… but will he take this opportunity to embrace his Irish roots. Its kind of an awkward situation for O’President, as he could offend the Irish by not acknowledging his roots…but then he could look silly if he gets to “schticky” with it. Either way, don’t be surprised if Irish Pub’s across the country try to cash in on the Obama is Irish craze.

Check out the Corrigan Brothers new song… “There’s No One as Irish as Barack O’Bama.”

You can also embrace the St. Patrick’s Day spirit and try to beat the recession by making your own beer…

Will Smith Awarded 2024 Oscar for “The Barack Obama Story”

GoogleFacebook Arena, Hollywood, CA - In a future ceremony broadcast live on over 5 million Apple HD Cellular iGlasses, Will Smith took home the 2024 Best Actor Oscar for his performance in “The Barack Obama Story.” Smith, present with 3rd wife Hillary Duff Pitt Smith accepted the much anticipated award.

Smith’s performance was described by many critics as “inevitable,” “agreeable” and “obvious.” Robot Roger Ebert said: “My host model predicted this 25 years ago.”

The movie covers all 12 years of President Obama’s historic presidency. From his curing of HIV and cancer, through leading the United States in World War III, to his appointing the first transgendered Supreme Court Justice, to the addition of the 51st State of Iceland ; Will Smith delivered his trademark cocksure attitude and reliable bankability as a movie star to bring home the gold.

Smith accepted the award as a memorable scene from the movie played in the background. In the scene President Obama saves the American economic crisis as he discovers the secret to a renewable energy source. The discovery of the energy source leads to every American citizen being awarded a share in American Energy Corporation, which created the nation of millionaires all American’s are now accustomed to.

The movie opened on the 14th of July, Will Smith’s trademark movie opening date of New Independence Day. “Big Willie Style owns New Independence Day” said Smith. “I always knew I’d get this role someday and it would be career defining. I mean c’mon, you knew, like, 15 years ago I’d be winning this Oscar.”

Will Smith blew away the competition, including fellow best actor nominee Gordon Joesph Levitt for his role as “Baltic Avenue” in Monopoly: The Movie.

A Little Too Much Obama Inauguration for Diane Sawyer? Is She Drunk? – Either Way She is the New Anchor of ABC World News

What’s up with Good Morning America’s Diane Sawyer? A long time on the air or too many cocktails? The producers should have known better then to keep sticking her on the air without letter her sleep. She may have attended a few too many Inaugural Balls without being afforded the opportunity to sleep it off. She’s got game though and probably the ability to “boot and rally.” Either way, you be the judge… and tell us if you think Diane Sawyer is drunk on the air…

UPDATE: 9/2/09 – Diane Sawyer has been named as the new anchor of ABC World News, replacing a retiring Charles Gibson.

Work Begins on George W. Bush Memorial Magazine Stand

Houston, Texas – With the inauguration of President-Elect Barack Obama quickly approaching, work began Monday on the George W. Bush Memorial Magazine Stand. As per the President’s special request, lead designer Monte LeCriff has been charged with the task of creating a magazine stand which will be both colorful and highlight pictures of dinosaurs reading magazines. LeCriff commented by saying that he “will build a stand that epitomizes the intellectual prowess and borderline literacy” of the 43rd President of the United States.

Initially the idea of having monkeys reading magazines was suggested, but the President dismissed the idea by insisting that “monkeys are stupid” and then ran out of the room with his Nintendo DS.

LeCriff, who famously designed the Stallone Mouth Museum, Paris Hilton Choch Cleanliness Clinic as well as the Andy Dick Snorting Cocaine Off a Flaming Twink War Memorial is excited about his most recent project. “We have secured a very prestigous placement in a Radio Shack fronted stripmall. This stripmall, is probably one of the top 17 stripmalls in the tri-county area. We are very excited about this opportunity to truly honor the President in a way that fits him.”

“The President is a reader, I mean he has subscriptions, to like 4 magazines,” said White House maid Olivia Sanchez. “As a matter of fact I think he has the magazines directly delivered to the Oval Office bathroom.”

“Oh, my Poopsie, he always has been a marvelous reader while on the toilet” added Laura Bush. “I remember him telling me about reading an entire issue of Highlights magazine in one sitting on the toilet. Both his legs had fallen asleep, but he stuck it out for 50 full minutes trying to find everything in the Hidden Picture Playground. He’s a real go-getter…well, when it comes to reading magazines on the toilet he is.”

United States Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings suggested that maybe President Bush should go the “classic route” of having a Presidential Library and that perhaps a magazine stand would be “trashy” and “send the wrong message.” When approached with the idea, President Bush stared puzzled at Spellings for a full five minutes before answering, “well, but this is gonna have dinosaurs reading magazines on it…”

Buzz Pirates’ Douche of the Day… Gov. Rod Blagojevich

C’mon man? Are you kidding me Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich? What kind of name is Rod anyway. I’ll tell you what kind…the kind belonging to Buzz Pirates’ Douche of the Day: Rod Blagojevich.

Douchey McGee was arrested by federal law enforcement agents today. The FBI alleged that the governor solicited significant contributions from candidates for payment to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant US Senate seat. There are charges against him including conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud as well as solicitation of bribery.

Blagojevich also allegedly threatened to withhold state assistance to Tribune Co., the owner of the Chicago Tribune, in the sale of Wrigley Field. He’s going to drag the Cubs into this mess too? I know Obama is a White Sox fan… but this is too far. In return for state assistance, Blagojevich allegedly wanted members of the paper’s editorial board who had been critical of him fired. So, now he’s trying to restrict freedom of speech too? What a cockstain.

Prez Elect Obama better distance himself from this guy as quickly as possible, throw him under the bus like right now. Hopefully Barry will call a press conference and say that he agrees with us that…

Gov. Rod Blagojevich… smile, you are Buzz Pirates’ Douche of the Day.

Ain’t that a kick in the King’s keister! I gots me 4 Cadillacs, but no yellow one! Mmmm, this here sandwich is the tops. Hey Pop, go pick me up a new yellow Cadillac. C’mon now, I’m the King! We can’t go on together, with suspicious miiiiiiiiinds.

Now, you know I’ve done push ups with JFK… karate with Nixon… and I may have even rode one of them unicorns with LBJ, so the King knows a thing or two about these elections, Jack. Hey Trish, can you wipe my brow, I’m sweatin’ on my sandwich now. Thanks Dish, now you go upstairs and wait for me in my velvet bed, the King will be up in a few. Hey Colonel, have them make me another sandwich, this one I want peanut butter, chocolate, a chopped up G.I. Joe, the May ’67 issue of Time Magazine…and baby toes. C’mon now, I’m the King! Oh let me be… your teddddddy beeeaaaaar.

Who is the Real Socialist?

Recently, there has been a lot of attention given to Sen. Obama being called a socialist by Gov. Palin. In addition, plenty have called supporters of the bailout (including both Obama and McCain) Socialists.

According to Wikipedia Socialism refers to a broad set of economic theories of social organization advocating state or collective ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods, and the creation of an egalitarian society. Modern socialism originated in the late nineteenth-century working class political movement. Karl Marx posited that socialism would be achieved via class struggle and a proletarian revolution which represents the transitional stage between capitalism and communism.

Lot of words there. People tend to make an evil connection between socialism and communism – and anyone who saw Rocky IV knows how scary that can be.

Well, fear not and meet the REAL socialist party ticket. His name is Brian Moore (on the right) and he is the Socialist Party Presidential Candidate. His running mate (on the left) is Stewart Alexander. Brian appeared on the Colbert Report on Tuesday and was definitely a good sport. The lead up to his appearance was basically a bunch of media pundits and Gov. Palin calling Obama a socialist… followed up with the real socialist candidate.

I think there are some Socialist ideals that are well founded, and socialism has worked well in Scandanavian countries. I believe that the way it works is that everyone is given 6 meatballs and blonde hair, and nobody has to work. Still, I think the US is too big and diverse for it to function properly. Nevertheless, I think its important that major ideas like Socialism that have good intentions get a voice. So, Brian Moore, good luck getting 0.00000000000001% of the vote… I may not vote for you, but I like you’re style.

Obama is a Long-Legged Mac Daddy!

I love me some Obama, and I know that this video clip is dated… but I just can’t get enough of this ridiculous preacher. His name is James David Manning and he is chief pastor at the ATLAH World Missionary Church on 123rd Street in New York City. I think he’s crazy, and the way he says “OBAMA!” is distinctive enough that my man Howard Stern plays the audio clip of Manning saying “OBAMA!” every time the future President is mentioned on the show. Even though Manning has a M.A. and a PhD, he’s a complete idiot… still I can’t help but laugh as he refers to Obama Girl and then feel a little uncomfortable as he refers to Obama’s caucasian mother. My guess is that John McCain and Sarah Palin are contributors to the ATLAH World Missionary Church.
