The old sheriff is a ni. …

Shorter GOP convention.

Shorter Democratic response.

That is all.

    How ’bout some more beans, Mr. Taggert?

    Every which way you loose ?

      We only caught a fragment of that bit, casting about from channel to channel, hoping to find a feed that didn’t feature a closeup of Lyin’ Ryan every 10 seconds or so. I’d love to know the backstory on that one. …

    Coulda saved us a whole week of bullshit if you had organized it, O’G.

    I still wonder why no clever photoshop artist ever created a photo from Blazing Saddles with Obama’s face replacing Cleavon Little’s and Biden’s replacing Gene Wilders’? Even today it would make a good campaign poster. Obama here tomorrow, the secret service guys are taking over the wife’s office on campus…will Barry be in there or will they use it stash their hookers?

    Thanks, Patrick – I gotta bookmark this!
    So perfect!

    Gee, Mel is the only one still alive; Little died years and years ago…
    Made before the era of sequels and prequels became ubiquitous. Too bad!

    More Blazing Saddles trivia:

    Madeline Kahn frequently employed impenetrable accents in her roles. She actually had a degree in speech therapy from
    Hofstra.

    Played Amy in Sondheim’s Company, which was written by George Furth, who plays Van Johnson in Blazing Saddles.

    “Le Petomane” means fartmaster. Supposedly BS was the first film to record farts.

      MK killed in “Young Frankenstein.” Have you ever seen the outtakes from the scene in which she arrives at the castle? Laugh, I thought I’d die. The one Brooks eventually picked is one of my favorite scenes of all time.

      • Steve O Says:

        Can’t remember the movie, can remember the reviewer, but someone said, about a scene they did together, that Barbara Streisand would make 15 gestures to make a dramatic point, and Kahn would get the same effect with one.

        Brooks comes across as crude, rude, and uncouth, but he was married to Anne Bancroft for forty years, so he must have at least been housebroken.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        See, that’s what I always loved about Brooks. So many comedians think they have to get serious to be taken seriously (see E.B. White on this topic in his essay, “Some Remarks On Humor”).

        Mel has mostly stuck to his comedic guns, like the overgrown 13-year-old boy in all of us who just can’t resist a good fart joke.

        Also, re: Anne Bancroft. Killer. Ever see her in “Home for the Holidays?” Kind of a throwaway role, but she pulled it out of the trash and put a polish on it.

    This will never gain much traction, but I think it’s an interesting insight into the dude’s opinion of himself

    • Larry T. Says:

      These guys are ALL part of the BIG LIE! Sub-three marathon time sounds good = so “I did that” is the answer. Up is down, right is left, the bigger the lie the better it is for these folks. The stuff they propose to do has been done many, many times with the same terrible results – so how else can they con the morons into voting for them other than the BIG LIE theory?

      • Steve O Says:

        The crazy thing is, he volunteered the marathon information. All the guy asked was, did you run in high school? And he went off about a sub three marathon as being the best of his many races.

        But here’s what’s really scary‚Ķ 10 bucks said he would’ve passed a lie detector test saying it. It’s one thing to lie to somebody hoping that you get away with it, but I think this guy genuinely believes his shit.

        Like saying he was in love with Ayn Rand, then saying it was just a phase, but then handing out her book as Christmas presents to staffers after the so called infatuation wore off

      • khal spencer Says:

        Yeah, like they asked me at my DoE lie detector interview if I bicycled, and I told them of the time I took a month off of work in grad school and beat Bernard Hinault to the top of L’Alp d’Huez. 1986 was such a good year…
