Here’s Thursday night’s segment of The Filter—-Enjoy. (And, yes, I do continue to make weird faces. But I manage not to do the angry cat face this time.)

    Ta Nehisi Coates had a great observation on Matthews and this kind of “observation”;

    “In fact, Chris Matthews didn’t forget Barack Obama was black. Chris Matthews forgot that Chris Matthews was white.”

    That is, Matthews forgot about all of the freight and nonsense he brings into the room as a white person when he’s dealing with black folks.

  2. Woody Says:

    Forgot Obama was black?! You mean to tell me that he’s black? Why, I never noticed. (Taken from an old “Maude” tv series.)

  3. Gava Joe Says:

    Congrats to you, Celeste for not reverting to the “angry cat face” which I personally find highly expressive. Also congrats for not resorting to those botoxed lips like sweet Melissa.

    Nice job of slipping in an Allman Bros. reference, Joe!

    Nice job by Fred Roggin in lining up the right talking heads :)

  5. Gava Joe Says:

    Hitler responds to the iPad

    Maybe Hitler should wait for this: U1 Hybrid iPad from Lenovo Trumps Apple!!!

  7. Hitler has your chorizo colgando Says:

    iPad, to god-damned hell with iPads! We have no iPads. In fact, we don’t need iPads. I don’t have to show you any stinking iPad, you god-damned cabrón and ching’ tu madre! Come out from that shit-hole of yours Woody!

  8. Gava Joe Says:

    Good link Woody. Now all’s a guy’s gotta do is survive til the second half of this yr. glom a thousand bucks and keep all the residual filthy fingertips off that touch screen. Nice hardware!

  9. Woody Says:

    If you don’t want electronic books but get overwhelmed with your collection, here are suggestions: Books You Can Live Without. (Suggestions in the comments are good, too.) However, if you participate in video panel discussions from your home, get the books that you don’t need and stack them behind you for a backdrop.

  10. Woody Says:

    Nuts, here’s the link that didn’t work above: http://roomfordebate.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/12/27/books-you-can-live-without/

    [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by californiaBNN, Celeste Fremon. Celeste Fremon said: On The Filter again. Avoided making angry cat faces on camera this time. Progress. http://bit.ly/bHeXVz [...]

    A video to add to the post….Democratic Leaders Fantasize about Scott Brown in Hilarious SNL Parody It’s okay, if you want to fantasize about Scott Brown, too, Celeste. It can be our little secret. Imagine that he’s reading poetry to you while stroking your cat on his lap.

  14. Celeste Fremon Says:

    I saw the SNL skit Woody. Very funny.

  15. Woody Says:

    Another video…one that CBS won’t show: The Gay Superbowl Commercial. It’s just not for family viewing.

  16. Woody Says:

    If you live in California and need a mattress, buy from the guy who identifies with everyone: (video) Gary’s Mattress.

    …………….

    FAIL

  18. RobThomas Says:

    SNL skit was good, though. Robert Byrd’s fantasy was the funniest, with the music and 1920s looking undergarments.

    Anyhow, here’s the Scott Brown everyone’s dying to know.

  19. Celeste Fremon Says:

    Rob, I noticed the hostile part of that comment (Woody’s) and chose to ignore it. His fantasies about my fantasies, are not my problem.

  20. Woody Says:

    Whoa. Wait a minute. Celeste has a picture of her cat in a recent post and I was thinking about that along with the kidding we give her about poetry. Those are two things that she likes. Anything else assumed is wrong.

  21. RobThomas Says:

    F A I L.

    Call it a day, Woody.

  22. Woody Did It Says:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/nation-and-world/la-fg-mexico-shooting1-2010feb01,0,3479327.story

    Reporting from Mexico City – Gunmen stormed a party packed with teenage revelers in Ciudad Juarez early Sunday, killing at least 14 people in the latest spasm of violence to slam the border city, authorities said.

    Officials in the northern state of Chihuahua said high school students and others were at a private home celebrating a school soccer victory when armed men rolled up in seven vehicles and opened fire.

    At least eight of the dead were younger than 20, officials said. The youngest confirmed victim was 13. At least 14 people were reported wounded

  23. RobThomas Says:

    Woody might do something like that. Didn’t a lot of these serial killers start off talking dirty to women who clearly didn’t like it?

  24. Woody Says:

    People are reading things into what I write. Like a fifth grade teacher told our class once, “Get your thoughts out of the gutter.”

  25. Woody Says:

    Because of Rob’s on-going interest in this thread in a later post, I’m going to restate something that I said earlier, which is absolutely true and for which I would swear is true on a stack of Bibles. I wrote the comment about Scott Brown to Celeste quite innocently. I was thinking about what Celeste liked and what would please her. After writing it, I was aware of the hint that it could be taken wrong, and I thought about changing the wordling, but I didn’t have time and left it as is. I promise that is the complete truth. Celeste, I sincerely apologize for the comment and my mistake for the way it was worded.
