The Daily Show's "must not miss" take on the Pope's sudden abdication.

For some reason this is in three parts. (I don't know why the Daily Show does not make longer clips. So hard on bloggers.)

Part One

Part Two

Part Three

Did you all catch the title? Skewering the Pope, making fun of religion, and taking a little jab at Sarah Palin in the process. The Daily Show does it all.

P.S. By the way here is the REAL reason the Pope is stepping down.

Apparently the wind hates him.

    That's not the wind, that's the holy ghost and apparently Ratzo got the message loud and clear!

    I think the Pope should be forced against his will, to bring his papacy to full-term.

    I was thinking what you were thinking.......Sarah now has a fellow quitter, who also too, believes in sky fairies.

    Sarah Palin tries to stay relevant

    The Sarah Palin Story is a cautionary tale about what can happen when politics and celebrity meet.

    Fox News and their once-upon-a-time darling Palin recently parted ways after three years. But it appears that Palin is still trying to find ways to stay relevant while her 15 minutes fades into the political history books.

    On Monday morning, Palin posted a message via Facebook that she and her husband, Todd, planned to attend Monday’s memorial service for slain Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. After the service, she wrote on her page, “It was a beautiful memorial service for Chris Kyle at Cowboys Stadium this afternoon. What a celebration of a great life! All in all, is there a finer human being who has crossed the 50-yard line star in Texas than Chris Kyle?” She then linked to a way to honor Kyle. She also thanked her followers for recent birthday wishes.

    A recent poll shows that her home state of Alaska no longer loves her. A survey by Public Policy Polling shows that Alaskans have a higher opinion of Congress than Palin. And that’s saying something considering Congress is at an all-time low. Alaskans – 78 percent of them – also do not want Palin to run for president in 2016. If she was pitted against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a presidential matchup, Clinton would win by 16 points in the 49th state.

    Four years ago, Palin was the superstar of the Republican Party. She was a fierce fundraiser and a lightening rod for the tea party. Then, the reality television and fame bugs bit her and her family hard. From “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” to daughter Bristol appearing on “Dancing With The Stars,” you half-expected the family to appear next in a mayonnaise commercial.

    Was that where it all went south for Palin?

    Lara Brown, a political science professor at Villanova University, says that Palin’s star flickered the minute she said she wasn’t running for president in 2011.

    “She gave up her gladiator status and became a spectator,” Brown told me. “In doing so, she could only stay relevant for so long because the people who rallied behind her in 2008 and wanted her to be their champion in 2012 were sorely disappointed. They believed she had the ‘fire in belly’ for politics and that she was going to be a ‘pit bull-tough hockey mom.’”

    Brown points to Palin abandoning the Alaska governorship as the first clue that she may not remain in politics.

    “For whatever reason, she has chosen to leave the game – more than once – and that is why she has become a ‘flash in the pan,’” Brown says.

    WaPo Corrects Story That Reported Sarah Palin Was Joining Al Jazeera

    The Washington Post on Tuesday issued a correction to a piece that claimed Sarah Palin was joining the pan-arab news network Al Jazeera. In the piece, published Tuesday morning, Suzi Parker quoted The Daily Currant, a satirical news site, on Palin's move:



    “The Sarah Palin Story is a cautionary tale about what can happen when politics and celebrity meet,” begins Washington Post contributor Suzi Parker’s profile of Sarah Palin’s move from Fox News Channel to the future cable news network Al Jazeera English. “Late last week Al Jazeera America announced the former vice-presidential candidate would be joining their news network.”

    The only problem with Parker’s scoop is that the news of Palin’s move comes from the comedy news site The Daily Currant, which recently published a wide-ranging “interview” with Palin about her lateral career move. The Daily Currant describes itself as “the global satirical newspaper of record.”

      lame stream media..........how could she join if she can't pronounce it....or ask, who is Al Jazeera, is he that black dude who plays music? if so, I only like TED NUGENT, so not interested.

      "you half-expected the family to appear next in a mayonnaise commercial."

      With all due respect to The Screechy Wretch(tm), I've always considered her to be the unrivaled Mayor of Mayonnaise. And not necessarily in a good way.

  5. With the Hon. Ted Nugent (R-CrazyFuck), a true Tea-publican patriot, making an appearance at the President's State of the Union Address tonight, it's a great time to review the highlights of The Nuge's exceptional military career.


    It's no wonder that he's such a hero to his supporters in the GOP Tea Party.

      Your link was wrong...no 'm' in front of gawker. You're welcome.

    The fact that the pope is still relevant in 21st century is amazing.

    This guy presides over a 100 billion dollar empire, craps in a gold plated toilet, and wears a million dollar outfit, and professes to be the best Christian?

    That title is ONLY held by Betty Bowers, who is not only Heaven's realtor, she's the Best real Christian

    Yep. One blowhard always sees another as competition.

    And BTW, how stupid is the pope - or his dresser? take a lesson from QII - weights and/or velcro or even some double stick tape prevent wardrobe malfunctions.
    So stuck in the 15 century - aren't you PapaRat?

    can't control the wind OR the lightning as the Basilica scored a direct strike hours after his resignation.

    I am enjoying how the crazy wasilla woman is routinely stuck into comedy shows as a tag line. She's no narcissistic and dumb she probably thinks it's great for her self promotion. They had a news story here in MN about the sniper's funeral. Sara didn't get a shout out.

    Since the Manti Te'o thing the Pope has started to question a long-term relationship with someone he talks to, but has never actually met.

    The real reason doesn't need 3 videos. He was complicit in the crime of priests ass-fucking little boys and kept quiet on it. Because that's what fucking queer priests do. And the boy scouts know it too so that's why they hesitate to go there.

    How hard can poping be? All he does is show up, read a few lines and nod off while everyone else works. Oh, and waves "HI" from his bedroom window every once in awhile.
    Don't you just love how the main stream media reports this as if it's earth shattering?
    I still wish Don Novello would cover this as Guido Sarducci. As a matter of fact, I wish Guido WAS the Pope, but I doubt he could finesse the fancy clothes


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
