One little kiss and Felina, good-bye.

Bonnie Rose says, “When Stephen Colbert talked to Vince Gilligan about the song El Paso used in the season finale of Breaking Bad, he asked if Felina was Jesse or the blue meth, and Vince basically said Felina was the blue meth.. Viewed that way, the song El Paso matches up with not only the scene it was used in and the season finale, but the entire series.”

What Bonnie Rose did with the song El Paso, combined with clips from all five seasons, is pretty brilliant. If you are a Breaking Bad fan, you’ll love this:

Colbert mocks Limbaugh and Doocy over Obama’s gun reform proposals

Colbert mocks Rush Limbaugh, Steve Doocy’s criticism about Obama’s gun reform proposals: Limbaugh barked on his radio show about how sickening he found Obama’s display. “He brings these kids, supposedly who wrote letters to the White House after Newtown … to paint a picture of support [mocking voice] among the children!” Limbaugh said. He continued in a falsely sympathetic tone, “They don’t want to die. How can you not listen to them?” And Colbert dished it right back, adopting a similar voice. “Boo hoo! I want a pony, I want to go to Disneyland, I want to wake to see another day. Boo hoo!” After all, why would kids be terrified of accident-prone weaponry?

Stephen Colbert on the GOP: TEAM RAPE!

ihatepeacocks: Oh Republicans, you were so close to 2 full weeks, so close.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Donald Trump. Or the GOP. Really.

So what was Donald Trump’s huge, birther-related, campaign-shattering, October-surprise announcement?  If Obama will release all of his college transcripts and passport applications, Trump will contribute $5 million to the charity of Obama’s choice. The Guardian: “This is not a media event or about Donald J Trump,” [Trump] wrote – a claim that, if true, would have made it unique in his professional career. “This is about the United States of America.” Oh, but it very much was about Donald J Trump – and far from being a gamechanging revelation, the much reported revelation, when it finally came, wasn’t even a revelation. It was a two-and-three-quarter-minute YouTube video in which the mogul, sitting behind a desk and seemingly channelling the spirit of a Bond villain, offered Obama “a deal I don’t believe he can refuse.”

“This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya. We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America I thought it would be over.” — President Barack Obama mocks Donald Trump offer on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Direct those questions to Boston because Donald Trump is Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter, so he owns everything he says.” — David Plouffe, quoted by Politico, when asked about Trump’s much-hyped video announcement today.

Oliver Willis: “In February, Trump recorded robocalls for Romney, then endorsed his candidacy. That was followed by a Romney fundraiser that offered dinner with Trump as a prize to donors. Just a few days ago, Trump was one of the designated “special guests” at a “Romney Victory Fall Retreat.” Trump’s executive vice president and special counsel Michael Cohen told Business Insider that Trump has given “millions” to SuperPACs supporting Romney’s candidacy. Despite Trump’s long history of indulging in conspiracy theories, hyping nonsense and trafficking in classic hucksterism, conservative media dutifully promoted Trump’s latest attempt at getting his name back in the news. Steve Doocy, co-host of Fox & Friends, promoted Trump’s stunt this morning, noting, “I’m sure we’re going to be talking about it tomorrow.”” (Steve Doocy, Fox & Friends, CNBC’s Squawk Box, Fox Nation, The Drudge Report, World Net Daily…)

Hunter-DailyKos: “A reminder: Mitt Romney has had to absolutely kowtow to this man. [...] Does Mitt Romney—or any Republican, for that matter—care in the slightest that Trump is a rotten boil on the political landscape? Do they give a damn that the Republican brand has so thoroughly been reduced to pandering to the least common denominator of their base, all the rest of reality be damned? Of course not. No matter how big a fool this dimwitted, Palinesque publicity hound makes himself, Mitt Romney will still shake his hand, and Paul Ryan will still hold private fundraisers with the man.

Just like Mourdock. Just like Akin. And Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the ridiculous Steve King, and Paul Ryan himself, the king of unicorn-based math and fleecing the poor to make the rich a bit fatter, and just like Mitt Romney himself, the poster child for the very sons of bitches that wrecked the economy by putting casinos within casinos, shoving those casinos in bigger casinos and claiming the whole thing was so goddamn patriotic and freedom-loving that you were practically un-American if you chastised them for it.

Welcome to the modern Republican Party. These are the people who are chosen not to be shunned, but to speak for the party, and guide the party, and raise money for the party, and appear on television for the party, and hold the reins of party leadership. Congratulations, Republican Party. Whatever depths of vapidity and grifting you might have been aiming for, I’d say you’ve managed to get there and then some.”
