I was on The Doctor Gina Show Friday. Gina Loudon is becoming one of my favorite peeps on the right. Listen to us talk about her 10th year class reunion, the Obama bus and candy cigarettes.
The Snark Factor Morning Update is back! Rep. Maxine Waters of California said that the Tea Party should go straight to hell. If I wanted to do that Maxine, I would move to California.
Fun with audio is just a click away!

Well kids, Pamela Gorman Day was a huge success. Yesterday her campaign coffers swelled to over 1 biiilllliooon dollars. Much of that credit goes to everyone that listened to FTR Radio’s wall to wall coverage of PamelaPalooza. Thank you!
The lead up to yesterday was fun. I thought it would be funny to make up a bunch of ridiculous statements about Pamela Gorman and tweet them with the hashtag #pamelagormanfunfacts. I heart Twitter.
Well it didn’t take long for me to gravitate to some old Chuck Norris fun facts. I repackaged some of them as Pamela Gorman fun facts and included a new car smell. Others joined in on the fun. It was pretty successful.
Later I found out that CQ Politics noticed our shenanigans-and wrote about them on CQPolitics.com. Fingers Malloy on CQ Politics? All I can say is- it’s about time.
From CQ Politics:
Random can be funny. Just ask “Fingers Malloy.”
Malloy came up with a clever way to invite listeners to tune into “Pamela Gorman Day” on his online radio show, “The Snark Factor.”
He tweeted fictional and clearly silly “fun facts” about Gorman, a Republican running for the House in Arizona’s 3rd district.
Then others joined in.
Here are the contributions to #pamelagormanfunfacts that made us LOL, groan, or both:
- “Crop circles are @PamelaGorman’s way of telling the world that sometimes corn needs to lie down.”
- “@PamelaGorman can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves.”
- “@PamelaGorman knows where Carmen Sandiego is.”
My thanks go out to Katherine Rizzo and CQ Politics. To read the entire post, click here.
I Too, Had An Inappropriate Physical Relationship With South Carolina Gubernatorial Candidate Nikki HaleyPosted on May 27th, 2010 by Fingers Malloy
This is probably the most painful blog post I have ever had to write. As many of you know, there has been a possible sex scandal brewing in South Carolina. Blogger Will Folks claims that he had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Republican Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley.
From The Telegraph.co.uk:
Republican hopeful Nikki Haley, who became front-runner to be South Carolina governor after she was backed by Sarah Palin, has been accused of having an affair with a conservative blogger.
The mother-of-two, 38, whose husband is a United States Army reserves officer, has been hit by allegations she had a “physical” relationship with commentator Will Folks.
The controversy erupted when Mr Folks posted a statement on his website claiming that “several years ago, prior to my marriage, I had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki. That’s it”.
Mr Folks offered no proof and later posted links to 26 articles covering his claim, stating that he had “uncharacteristically shut his pie hole in the wake of this morning’s seismic revelations” and would maintain his silence.
Why do I bring all of this up? Because I too had an inappropriate physical relationship with Nikki Haley (I called her my Nikki-Bear).
She ended it, to start whatever she had going on with Will Folks.
I keep asking myself–why did she dump me for him? I will never forget the time she let me paint her while we were on the Titanic. Sure we were just dumb kids, but those memories will last a lifetime. At that moment, she made me feel like I was king of the world.
But after a while I knew we were on the rocks. I told Nikki that I changed the number on the back of my jeans from a size 32 waist to a 31. She freaked out. She told me that I wasn’t sponge worthy.
I tried to win her back. One time I sat outside her window all day holding a giant jam box over my head–and played the same crappy Peter Gabriel song over and over and over again.
Hours later when she finally came outside, all I could say was:
You had me at hello, you had me at hello.
Next thing I know, she’s not answering my phone calls.
I, like Will Folks–have text messages to prove what Nikki-Bear and I once had. Here’s my proof:

There. I think I have made a convincing case. The evidence is clear. I have wild stories and a text message that may or may not be completely made up. Nikki-Bear and I had something special–and she left me for that poser Will Folks.
My accusations, along with Will Folk’s story must be true. We are both bloggers. When have you ever been misled or got bad information from a blog?
Wait, why is this a scandal again?
*Warning, the preceding blog post may have no basis in fact.
I finally did a promotional video for the show, the station has been bugging me to do one for weeks. What do you think?
From now on, every weekday I will upload a Snark Factor Morning Update. It will be a “mini-podcast.” Nothing more than a 5-10 minute look at the news of the day, from The Snark Factor point of view.
So subscribe to the RSS feed and enjoy, or polar bears will die…
