Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, October 25, 2006

"Michael J. Fox is allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process is shilling for a Democrat politician," Rush Limbaugh said of the ad for Senate candidate Claire McCaskill of Missouri.

The Big Fat Pumpkin Head, Limbaugh later seemed to back off the idea that Fox was acting out symptoms, saying he didn't mean to imply "that one could easily act it out for the purposes of a commercial."

But he also said, "I have gotten a plethora of e-mails from people saying Michael J. Fox has admitted in interviews that he goes off his medication for Parkinson's disease when he appears before Congress or other groups as a means of illustrating the ravages of the disease."

YO PUMPKIN HEAD –Doesn’t make sense, when you are trying to convince people to support research, to show them what can happen to those with the disease? Not everyone can afford the medication needed and ….now listen closely you pill-popping ignoramus…if we can find a cure then those afflicted don’t need to take the medication at all! - OH sorry, you like to take pills…THE COUCH forgot!

Fox has filmed commercials for Democratic candidates who support stem cell research.

John Rogers, Fox’s spokesman retorted “It’s an appalling, sad statement. Anybody who understands Parkinson’s knows it’s because of the medicine that one experiences” body movements like those seen in the ad.


KIDDIES - YA JUST GOTTA LOVE THIS ONE - thanks to Pia for the heads-up!

Associated Press
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Loretta Nall, the Libertarian Party's write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, is campaigning on her cleavage and hoping that voters' eyes will eventually refocus on her platform.

"It started out as a joke, but it blew up into something huge," Nall said.

Her campaign includes:
Campaign gear showing her smiling in a low-cut dress

Her campaign platform, includes:

  • tax credits for sending children to private school and home schooling,
  • opting out of the No Child Left Behind Act,
  • Legalizing marijuana - Early in her campaign, she talked about how her misdemeanor arrest for marijuana possession in 2002 caused her to start the U.S. Marijuana Party and become an advocate for decriminalizing marijuana.
  • Not complying with the Patriot Act and the Real ID Act.
  • Trying to withdraw the Alabama National Guard from Iraq.
    "When people in Alabama get tired of kicking the ass of brown people, it's time to pull out," she said in her characteristically over-the-top style.
Then she entertained readers of her campaign Web site with lots of information about her personal life, including a discussion of why she doesn't wear panties.

Now her campaign is offering everything from T-shirts to marijuana stash boxes adorned with a photo of her in a dress
with a plunging neckline and the words: "More of these boobs."

Below that are pictures of other candidates for governor - including Re
publican incumbent Bob Riley and Democratic Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley - along with the words: "And less of these boobs."

No matter how far back Nall finishes on Nov. 7, that won't be the last that voters will see of her. She's already making plans to run against Republican Rep. Mike Rogers in Alabama's 3rd Congressional District in 2008.

"I enjoy this," she said.

WELL THE COUCH has always wondered why so much money is wasted on trying to stop marijuana and thinks it should be government regulated, like cigarettes and alcohol. This would also give a new crop to the many tobacco farmers who are losing their livelihood with the reduction of smoking… BUT…this is one Looney Hootchie…

THE COUCH is waiting anxiously for its invitation to the Cruise/Holmes wedding. After all we have done to solidify their relationship; we think it is only correct and proper an invitation be forthcoming.

November 18 in Italyrunning off to make sure passport is still current…


So, Madonna is on Oprah today to tell the world what a big misconception we all have of her attempt to adopt this young boy.

Of course it is all the media’s fault for this whole controversy. She met with the dad and he totally understood (of course he does not speak English) and now the press “have gotten to him.”

Seems she is “startled” that the father didn’t realize he was giving up his son “for good.”

On the TIME website yesterday, it appears dad has changed his mind again and will not contest the adoptions “I don’t want my child, who is already gone, to come back. I will be killing his future if I accept that.”

Ah….don’t you just love these heartwarming family sagas?


So, THE COUCH had some time to kill last evening and began to push the NEXT BLOG button you see at the top of the page…The Blogosphere is a strange and mysterious place…Remember, all of these sites are in the world, we are not even touching on the thousands…tens of thousands of blogs that have their own domains…

We came across many many foreign blogs that we could not understand at all…but some had pictures and those pictures made us real curious. Check out HERE and HERE for examples.

Many had Halloween as a theme this week, which makes perfect sense.

There are people out there who are lonely….they write sad, desperate posts and never get comments.

I found sites selling “How to sell” ideas, and sites selling custom cards and sites selling things I was even sure about!

Many had advertising on them…HELLO PEPSI!!!! HELLO McDONALDS!!!!!! HERE I AM

In my short journey, I came across 6 blogs which had just been started yesterday! So, there are new blogs every day.

I found if I am on a site and I hit the back button and go to the previous blog, and then hit the NEXT BLOG button again, I go to a completely different blog then I started on!

I even bookmarked three blogs to go back and read, as they seemed interesting…and left comments on a couple too!

Then I came across THE-BESTEST-BLOG-OF-ALL-TIME, which you can find HERE. This site works like the NEXT BLOG button, only it gets over 6,000 hits a day and you can be named the Best Blog of the Day, and other such stuff…

Pretty cool, so I linked them here and now I should be in the rotation over there to get seen by a whole new crop of blog-searchers!

This world just keeps going round and round….

St. J - P.B.U.A.Q.B.

Thanks for sitting on THE COUCH, hope you enjoyed your stay.
