I’ve gone through a change. Transformed. Like menopause. Suddenly, the Republican Agenda makes sense to me. I’ve gone from liberal to vacuous.
Seriously. Work with me here.
Torture makes complete sense in the context of liberty and justice for all. Dick Cheney and his minions should not be investigated or prosecuted. They were merely doing their best. It’s hopeless silliness, not to mention unpatriotic, to pursue any form of persecution of these brave defenders of the American way. As American’s, we are better than everyone else, we don’t deserve the scrutiny. We are above it. God put us here to rule the world and he is on our side. Our unique responsibility is to rid the world of evil.
We are special. Jesus tells us so. The Bible tells us so.
Our qualifications are exclusive and divine. Christian Americans are The Chosen.
Republicans in particular.
Those who’ve failed to reach their fiscal potential are not my problem, my concern and certainly not my fault. Maybe God’s will is that they should be left behind. A kind of religious natural selection. Ha! Take that you atheist Darwin lovers. After all, God only helps those that help themselves. Christ has no use or patience for the weak or impaired, they are unable to do for themselves and are therefore worthless to the Holy Spirit. Never give a fish to a Democrat, teaching the worthless to fish is a waste of time. Some have been chosen and some have not. The Christian way and obviously what the Heavenly Father intended for the Christian nation of America.
The rich should be taxed minimally, if at all. Wealth drives the modern economy. They provide the largess for jobs and industry. They are the chosen. Thus, their generosity is evident and already in place. They do far more than the beggar or the homeless can or would.
I’ve come to loath the rotting toothed, stupid and desperate poor. God has not chosen riches for me but I shudder when I gaze upon the worthless because I know my tax dollars go to prolong their miserable lives. Poor but obese, they lack the sense to choose wholesome and nutritious food. They neither know nor care enough too seek proactive medicines or practices and I don’t doubt that’s all part of God’s plan. That these zombies are allowed to drain the money and resources of American society in general confuses me. God does work in mysterious ways.
I don’t hate them because God says not to.
America is the land of opportunity. Always has been. Those who’ve failed to take advantage of America’s vast and ripe system of free education and abundant possibility are simply beyond hope, especially once they pass the threshold of adulthood. I work, I have a job, so these greasy, dentally challenged trailer park dwellers, these weak and worthless veterans of our wars who can’t get it together and refuse to do for themselves, make me want to puke. Look at all the goddamn foreigners that take jobs as convenience store clerks or manual labor workers that take jobs from worthy Americans. Are these people less capable, less able than honest Americans? Maybe they are, maybe they’re not.
Falls under not my fucking problem. All I know is I’d much rather have my tax dollars go towards fighting the raghead terrorists than these wastes of God’s air. I see these people in wheelchairs sporting an oxygen tank in casinos and I just know my money is paying for them instead of keeping us safe from Satan’s Muslim evil doers. They should be euthanized like the diseased cat’s and dogs that make a mess of my trash and threaten neighborhood children with a cornucopia of malaise. Tics, fleas and ringworm.
Ever heard that expression “Kill ‘em all and lot God sort them out”? I’m down with that. I’m no judge and jury but get them off my block and out of my town.
Sometimes I think Hitler was more on the ball than he gets credit for. Everyone knows the Jews control the banks and the entire entertainment industry. You know “The Family” on C Street more or less agrees. He really was just looking to rid his country of Faggots, Gypsies, Jews and the ethnically impure. Hitler was a Christian too, you know. He had “The Ultimate Solution” and I think we could take a page or two from his playbook.
It’s a good dose of reality as opposed to the fascism and socialism pinko liberals try so hard to cram down our necks every fucking day.
See, they’re not patriots like me and you. They love niggers and spics and anyone who isn’t from the Mayflower like us. They are weak. They give money to all the dirty and lazy regardless of their color. Ask me for money on the street, I’ll tell you to get a job you piece of shit. They wander around pushing their stolen shopping carts full of stolen trash and I hate them. Their skin a map of rashes, their eyes bloodshot with their hands out and the cloud of foul stink they walk in. This instead of a job?
Fucking lazy if you ask me. No excuse.
Christ has blessed my soul with charity but these people have no will or desire and don’t deserve the fish I can afford. If they won’t die, better off behind bars at $30k a year because they are a menace. Know God or pay the price.
We should attack and punish those countries who threaten us. The future of the world depends on the triumph of Christianity over Islam. They’re heathens and there’s no chance of co-existing with a bunch of towel headed camel jockeys. Crude and uncivilized. We have nukes and they don’t. Time to use them. Negotiation is pointless. Turn their the desert into glass.
Take a breath.
I hope you understand that I’m kidding. I’ve painted a picture for you of what I hate. It is a caricature for sure. A broad stroke, the impetus, the catalyst, being a solid month of right wing talk radio and it’s blatant, overt dishonesty. Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are simultaneously American icons and stains on America’s aspirations and her identity. What they do everyday is sick, irresponsible and evil. They and their ilk seek nothing more than to pollute our national discourse so egregiously as to rile the stupid and offend the thoughtful to the extent that they are actually paid handsomely for their treason. Shining examples of the worst of us. The physical manifestation of everything that is wrong with American society, patriotism and all our precious ideas.
They are paid handsomely to stir shit. Disgusting. I would swing on either one. I fucking hate these guys.
This blog is dedicated to Teddy Kennedy. Not perfect by any means, I understand his flaws better than you can know, a lion nonetheless. A champion of all those I’ve lampooned so harshly here. The dynasty has ended. It really is America’s loss.
His passing is poignant and symbolic. It was with JFK’s assassination that the modern era of brutal politics flooded us. The subsequent courage of LBJ and the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King cemented the vulgar ugliness of right versus left in this once vital and proud nation. We have fallen from those heights. Those ideals and those hopes.
In so many ways, we are in the same place. A half African, half Caucasian man as President. We are back in that place more than you probably know. Round headed idiots showing up to Town hall meetings sporting loaded weaponry enough to slay everyone in front of them. Adolph fucking Hitler invoked over and over. There are so many children in America, both literally and figuratively. I worry so much that despite the election, we are forced to choose between a martyr or Superman.
It would be convenient and gratuitously exculpatory to pontificate here, but I’ll spare both you and me. Save this: Both John McCain and Orin Hatch disingenuously lamented the absence of Ted Kennedy from the health care debate in the last day or two, insinuating that his presence would have made a difference. Fucking pricks. Shame on you assholes. You and your ever shrinking party are beginning to trip over your own dicks in your own race for shamelessness.
Public option or bust.
Drinks for my friends.
Johnny Angel Wendell is actually owed credit for the subject matter here, a left leaning radio talk show host, by simply voting yes in a facebook poll as to whether Sarah Palin should run for the Presidency in 2012.
I too am in favor, if only for the burlesque it promises. After reading “It Came From Wasilla” in the latest Vanity Fair, I’m convinced that the entertainment value of such an endeavor would be no less than awesome by way of spectacle. And really, if by then that’s the best the GOP can do, it will guarantee a second term for Obama or whomever else the Democrats see fit to choose. Just think of the gritty pathos. The humanity. The vacuum of humility.
Now, 2012 is a political millennium away. To be honest, I estimate Palin’s political career, much less her aspirations, to be toast crispy and black. Stick a fork in her. Sarah Palin is a dry, overdone pot roast no gravy can mitigate. So yes, it’s a fantasy. Forgive me; it would be grande.
The thing is this, the Republicans have nobody. Not one man or woman. Not one credible individual with even the remotest potential to entertain the notion of leading the party to any elected office other than say, dog catcher or assemblyman. Bereft of leaders, message or even philosophy. Reaping what they have sown. Karma not just nipping at their heels but ripping chunks from their asses. Callow adolescent diphshits and geriatric has-beens. The C Street house of cards collapsing on what would have been potential stewards like Ensign, Pickering and Sanford. Not so much burlesque as an ill advised, asinine dress rehearsal.
It get’s harder and harder to watch. More and more disgusting.
As much fun as there is to be had here, this shit is pathetic. It’s embarrassing.
There are members of congress who believe the earth is but six thousand years old. Yep, Republicans almost all. We look to these assholes for leadership?
I feel a rant coming on. Yep, it’s in the back of my throat.
I’m coughing. It’s like a goddamn sagebrush. This is gonna hurt. Sorry. Feels like a tumbleweed. Yep. Sorry. Got any grape Kool-Aid?
Go ahead, read your Bible or your Qur’an or whatever gets you through the night. I’m less sick of your shit interfering with my life than it so violently and presumptively interferes with the lives of everyone else. Then, it influences my life. This is no way to run the world. My God can beat up your God. Wanna race for pink slips? Archaic and absurd. Fonzi vs. Ponch. Two would be Italians, one played by a Jew the other an Hispanic.
We really need to leave this shit behind. It’s stupid.
Catholicism is dumb and hypocritical and evil. A religion based on ancient, obsolete treatise and decorum as much as rampant Church sponsored pedophilia. Fuck these cocksuckers. Pun violently intended. Bullshit from the ground up. The bureaucracy of this institution has no excuse and even less shame. They steadfastly protect those who have or would have diddled your children. Those who have or who would have ass raped your little boy or girl.
Yet they posture in front of you and deign to share God’s will and the way to a moral life with you. Snake oil. Charlatans. Idiots. Pretenders. Phonies. They don’t know or understand shit.
Them having never shared their pudenda with a mature female makes them sacred? Holy?
Bullshit. They stick it wherever they can.
I use the Catholics as an example because I loathe them. But really, all organized religion is the same through the jaundiced lense of hypocrisy and evil. So many of you need to go play in the street. You’re not relevant and don’t deserve to be tax free. You hurt and damage far more than you help and your “faith” is literally based on an imaginary man in the sky.
And they believe the earth is six thousand years old. I’m done with you people.
Shut up. Go away. Jesus is not the way, if he existed at all he may have been a nice guy. That’s it.
I hate religion.
Drinks for my friends.
More than a little pensive.
The citizens of Iran have a profoundly legitimate beef. One of the best kind. Noble and justified. An obviously rigged election. Blatant. Ridiculous. The turn out was over 120%. Bullshit is the given.
Tomorrow may inform us of eventual fate. The Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, deigned to wade in today on the Sabbath, by vehicle of his scheduled sermon. Just another day of worship. He was clear: Those who “take wrong measures which are harmful, they will be held accountable for all violence.” He called President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “the absolute victor” in last week’s election…..” -CNN.com
I’m spooked. The difference between these human events and Tiananmen Square for example, is that despite the Iranian government’s game face and perseverant campaign to control information, this revolution just may be televised. Forgive my trite. I’m not here to obviate something so big and ripe. I fear what happens next. Both sides are more than aware that the entire world watches.
The chances of a fistfight are always multiplied by an audience. Always.
The Ayatollah didn’t merely draw a line in the sand. He came out with serious lumber. He tells the people of Iran that they are welcome to test his bat. He tells them it will be ugly. I’m really afraid of that. I think it’s quite likely. Man, I hope not. Did you know that Iran is arguably the most pro-American country in the entire region? These people are in trouble and I doubt they will walk away. There will be blood. There already has been.
Iranians are not pussies.
Our Man’s facility with it all has been pitch perfect. He understands that any movement in Iran perceived as being fomented or even endorsed by the US government is a guarantee it will sink under that weight. The asshat Republicans shouting jingoistic bullshit from the rooftops are posturing with lamentable irresponsibility. Man I hate these pricks. No compassion, zero sensibility, reckless abandon in pursuit of grandeur. Shut the fuck up.
Iran is a modern society. It has a vibrant and youthful population, progressive by regional standards. Amazingly, a huge chunk of them don’t hate us. Really.
My fear is that the Iranian people will suffer for whatever they do tomorrow. For years.
It is the covert option that most media fails to talk about. I’m afraid they will be picked off at random, regardless of participation, until, you know, morale improves. I don’t see tanks but I do see terror. For years. They know full well, both sides get it. Tomorrow is going to be interesting.
See, we’re all just citizens of the world. After the sun impregnates the horizon and the stars come out, the day is done and we are all the same. We really are all the same. I live in a big city so ethnic diversity is but a part of my coat of many colors. Whether your thing is prayer or the power of positive thinking, it’s time to do a little dance.
Wisdom, safety and support to the people of Iran.
And, um, fuck the Ayatollah.

“And I’m also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: Assalaamu alaykum.” -Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America.
Honestly, I teared up.
I am so very proud of my President and my country. Our Man was amazing today. He said things no American President has ever said. And they were all true. I was transfixed. Enchanted. Slack jawed. I’m grateful I was alone, just in case I drooled.
It’s worth pointing out that in light of the elaborate smear effort to paint him as some sort of extremist Muslim conducted during the Presidential campaign, his speech in Cairo today was goddamn courageous. Beyond that, it was an overt in your face to his neoconservative right wing Christian critics. You know, the ones that so desperately want you to believe that we’re in the middle of some war that is ultimately about our God being able to beat up their God. The ones for whom ridiculous dogma and apocryphal ideology trump compassion, reality and common sense.
“More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations. Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam.”
“So long as our relationship is defined by our differences, we will empower those who sow hatred rather than peace, those who promote conflict rather than the cooperation that can help all of our people achieve justice and prosperity. And this cycle of suspicion and discord must end.”
Oh man. That’s the shit right there.
“As the Holy Quran tells us, “Be conscious of God and speak always the truth. That is what I will try to do today — to speak the truth as best I can, humbled by the task before us, and firm in my belief that the interests we share as human beings are far more powerful than the forces that drive us apart.”
There it is. We are all just people. Humans first and foremost. How breathtakingly refreshing. How important and authentic.
Obama quoted John Adams: “The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.”
This notion, so widely held, that America is at war with a religion or an ethnicity or even a geographic region is so very wrongheaded, so perspicaciously misguided, that most Americans, along with too much of the world, have no realistic understanding of just exactly what is happening and why.
It’s understandable, given the litany of lies we’ve been force fed, and our own failure in laziness and apathy to not even bother to investigate for our own edification, the absolute crap the media has foisted upon us so irresponsibly, so relentlessly and for so long. The failure of journalism in America is mirrored by the doppelganger of breakdown by Americans ourselves, to question what we’re told, to challenge what we are led to believe. Exactly why we are in this mess.
“The enduring faith of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few. Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism — it is an important part of promoting peace.”
As an agnostic, I am moved to say Amen.
“Let me also address the issue of Iraq. Unlike Afghanistan, Iraq was a war of choice that provoked strong differences in my country and around the world……….Indeed, we can recall the words of Thomas Jefferson, who said: “I hope that our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us that the less we use our power, the greater it will be.”
Sheezus. Wow. In Cairo, Egypt. An incredibly bold admission about the abject failure of American policy. I can’t tell you how impressed I am at this honest confession by Our Man on the world stage. It’s true, America fucked up by invading Iraq. We screwed the pooch. Shame on us.
“And finally, just as America can never tolerate violence by extremists, we must never alter or forget our principles. Nine-eleven was an enormous trauma to our country. The fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our traditions and our ideals. We are taking concrete actions to change course. I have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the United States, and I have ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed by early next year.”
Of course I was aware of these steps by Our Man, but his restating of them beneath and behind the proscenium of a stage in front of the entire world is nothing less than golden. And again, the admission of just how far this once great country has strayed, is so brave and nakedly honest, that I am at a loss for words.
He recounts these events, these egregious mistakes, because his intention is to put them behind us by reconstructing our integrity and pride with honesty and transparency, whenever and wherever possible.
Then, he swung the mother of all haymakers:
“On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than 60 years they’ve endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations — large and small — that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. And America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity and a state of their own.”
“It is a sign neither of courage nor power to shoot rockets at sleeping children, or to blow up old women on a bus. That’s not how moral authority is claimed; that’s how it is surrendered.”
“The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these settlements to stop.”
Unbelievable. Finally. A sitting American calls Israel on it’s shit.
This is change. I can’t speak for you, but this is why this man earned my vote. It is why I didn’t hesitate to hope. I believed him then. I believe him now. I believe in him. As I write this, I am inspired and awfully proud.
This speech will no doubt be read, remarked upon and lauded for decades.
This guy is so fucking cool.
Drinks for my friends.
Here we are. Judgement day less than one hundred hours away.
Show me a vampire and I’ll show you a Republican. Such singleminded avarice does not exist in mere mortals. Show me a lockstep conservative and I’ll show you a nearly brain dead zombie. Such singleminded lust for flesh only exists in the undead.
John McCain is Frankenstein’s Monster. Far less than the sum of his parts and dangerously insane.
Show me an indefatigable, unflappable, charismatic black man and I’ll show you a liberal Democrat. There are no black vampires, except maybe Blackula. There’s very few black zombies. With zombies, you can tell by looking.
By the way, Black Republicans must be as close to stupid as Gay Republicans.
Are you aware that almost a quarter of the good folks in Texas believe Our Man to be a Muslim? Like there’s anything more unsavory about that religion than the next. Fucking rednecks.
If you think Barack Obama is a Muslim, it’s because you’re looking for a reason to fear him. It is willfull ignorance and it’s among the ugliest of American proclivities. Guess what else it is? It’s straight up, no apologies, racist. Tragic and shameful.
What I’m trying to do here is make the point that, were it not for the color of his skin, Barack Obama would be escorting McCain to a toilet after an enema right about now and then tucking him in. Once the elder statesman begins to snore, Our Man would slip off to contemplate his cabinet. He’s that kind of guy and Doubtfire has consumed copious amounts of carcinogens on the trail. He’s glowing.
No worries, he’s not going to explode.
Actually, he’ll melt. There will be a godawfull smell. The stain will be solvent-proof. Greasy, like charred opossum.
A horrible mess, but it will manageable as long as we can get him outside before he starts to sizzle. Away from dense foliage and wooden structures. Get the hoses ready. Call 911. Wear a cup. Maybe a helmet and eye protection.
The actual location will need to be incinerated for public safety.
The other point I need to make is that there will indeed be a deadfall. A biohazard. The great unwashed will not go quietly. Many of them will not go at all. People have lifetimes, generations, invested in this pervasive, insidious belief system. They cling to the religious components of it as a way to legitimize and justify their bigotry and narrowmindedness.
It’s goddamn frustrating because they hide behind it and we athiests and agnostics can’t go there. They will label us Godless and no one one will hear us out.
Conservatives, neocons and religious zealots have no love for America. They don’t give a mad fuck. They love themselves and they count on being romanced by the more persuasive among them. Hook line and sinker, these fools wait for orders and start marching as soon as they receive the message.
They disdain thinking for themselves. They’ve come to depend on being told what to do. How to act. What to think.
What should be antithetical, has instead become gospel.
How do they do that? It’s not like they’re all under the same roof. It’s cult behavior on an impossibly massive scale.
One more season of this witch and we’re toast.
Vote you fucks.
Pimp this blog. Spread it. Cut and paste it. Cop a link. Just get it out there. What song are you hoping to hear next Wednesday morning?
“Here we come, walkin’
Down the street.
We get the funniest looks from
Ev’ry one we meet.
Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around.
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.” -Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart

I’m a proud American. I’m a patriot. Love it or leave it. Don’t you dare criticize. What other reason could you possibly have for objecting to wiretapping and surveillance unless you got something to hide?
Hell, I ain’t worried.
Like I said, I’m a patriot and I love my country.
Fisa can blow me, it always goes south when appointed judges stick their progressive dicks in it. Liberal judges legislating from the bench are not needed in these circumstances. Our government is just trying to protect us. It’s what they do. It’s what they’re there for.
If you can’t trust them, who can you trust?
Liberals need to relax while patriots can feel good about it.
Sure, I smoked a little dope when I was younger, beat up the occasional sissy. That was years ago. I’m a Born Again, so I love everybody now. I say let people do what they want. Within reason. Less government.
Dangerous times call for extreme measures and there’s no more dangerous times than now. The Arabs and the terrorists hate us for our freedom and want to kill us. Islam is a violent and hateful religion. They’re all crazy, you can’t talk to them. Fucking ragheads. Why don’t they just leave us alone? What did we ever do to them?
If it ain’t Communism it’s some Godless sandnigger religion. They say Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. It wouldn’t suprise me. He’s the most liberal member of the Senate you know. He’s friends with terrorists who would kill our own. Sounds to me like he’s one cousin removed from hating America.
What are people thinking? A black Muslim terrorist for President? Over my dead body. It’s why there’s that amendment that let’s us keep our guns. He wants to spread the wealth and that’s socialism. It’s pinko. Every American has the same opportunity, depends on what you do with it.
God created us equal, it says so in the Bible.
Don’t come to me if you’re a crack smoking welfare mom. I work. Don’t cry to me about your son getting involved in gangs. Get him a job. Put his ass to work. I work for a living.
Some of my good friends are blacks. Nice people but I didn’t own them or beat them. What do they want from me? It just so happens, they’re black and I’m white. It’s like I should regret being caucasian. Why should I feel guilt for the way I was born?
If you ask me, the only way to solve the mess is to nuke the whole Godforsaken region. Turn all that sand into glass. Iran too. Let God sort ‘em out. Trust in God.
Goddamn right we need change. We’re in a real crisis. Mexicans stealing our jobs. Outsourcing. Fuckin gas through the roof. Liberals want to blame the white man. The American businessman. Good honest Christians who are being taxed and regulated to death for just trying to make a buck and go to church on Sunday in decent clothes.
Leave these people alone so they can create jobs and save this country. They are heroes. They deserve and need that tax break.
All these foreigners need to speak American. Say the Pledge every day including “under God” and respect our God, the one this great nation was founded on. A Christian God.
Why is that too much to ask? A little respect, you know? This is the greatest country in the world. Take off your hat and put your hand over your heart when our anthem gets played.
Call me a redneck, I don’t care because maybe that’s what I am. I love my country and I love Jesus Christ. He was a carpenter you know.
I gotta tell ya just because “Joe The Plumber” isn’t a plumber and his name’s not Joe and he can’t afford to buy the business he works for, doesn’t mean he isn’t Joe Sixpack and a regular American with the same problems we all have.
The Bible says an eye for an eye and that’s why abortion doctors sometimes reap what they’ve sown. I don’t condone it but I understand. Even if it’s rape, it’s not up to us to decide. I mean, a life is a life. The bible says so. Unless of course, if that life has taken another, or sold dope, or is a traitor or a terrorist. Face it, what better deterrent is there than the death penalty?
People should understand that we’ll kill them if they screw up in America. Justice should be swift and mighty. Every war, including this one we’re in now, is for justice and truth and democracy. Even when it’s really hard, America does the right thing. Always.
You know, W. is a good man. He made a few mistakes. All Presidents do. Nobody’s perfect. He cares about us. I feel it. He’s a good man. I’d really like to have a beer with him. I bet he’s friendly and regular. Cheney’s a little spooky but he’s just the brains of the operation.
So whatever about the gays. It’s a choice and there are consequences. We all pay a price for bad decisions and that’s one of the great things about America. Accountability. No way will this American stand for faggots who want to soil the Christian institution of marriage. It’s holy and sacred. Can’t you people just leave it alone? What difference could it possibly make in their lives and their futures?
It’s a symbol. That’s why they want it so bad. It’s just silly.
Show me a homosexual and I’ll show you a liberal. Wanna bet?
It’s like they think it will make them legitimate somehow. Uh, not in the eyes of this patriot.
In a lot of ways, it’s like the French. We saved their asses in The Big One. What have they ever done for us besides sneer and act like we’re bullies and brutes? Overcharge us for wine and cheese. Ingrates. Why do we bother?
Those countries that sell their oil to the Chinese instead of us; it might be time to introduce them to the United States Navy.
McCain fought to save us from communism. He’s got my vote because he’s a genuine hero. This Sarah Palin is sassy and real and they’re both mavericks. I like that. I don’t care how smart Obama is. That’s not was this is about. I’ve always been suspicious of book learning as opposed to street smarts. This guy Obama eats arugula and fish eggs. He went to Harvard. I think his wife did too.
Tea with a pinky out.
By the way, Michelle Obama has been ashamed of America. Only recently proud. Can you believe this shit? Now what does America, the best country in the world, have to be ashamed of?
You know what else bothers me? What does it say to the rest of the world if America elects an African American Muslim for President? The world respects us. We are the example. America is the bar. There’s a ton of responsibility there and we’re gonna be held accountable.
The one thing I can agree with the liberals about is the idea that this country has it’s head in the shitter.
We can’t afford this second guessing and insecurity when it comes too choosing our leaders. A man with over two decades in the Senate. A man who’s crashed four airplanes and is still with us. A woman who shoots moose. A woman who’s been both Mayor and Governor of the wilderness. Both these Americans are patriots.
A woman who doesn’t break a sweat while spending more than twice what most American’s make in a year on two months worth of clothes. She wants to look good for us.
A man who’s not afraid to call his wife a “cunt” in public.
Drinks for my friends.
Yesterday we learned Dick-in-Bush would be sending one of it’s “most senior diplomats” to Switzerland to meet with Iran’s top nuclear official.
Today we learned of the Pentagon’s intention to shift troops from Iraq to Afghanistan earlier and more precipitously than anticipated or forecast. They told us everything was fine………
Tonight, Rush (the band) appears on the Colbert Report.
It is America’s smartest day in over seven years. It’s not saying much but I had to mention it.
Dumbya has broken with stated, fucking shouted, obdurate policy.
Oil went down for the second day in a row, further than it has in seventeen years. The NYSE rallied after having it’s ass handed to it for month after hemorrhage after month after hemorrhage. The Bear is back.
There is some idea that as a result of conservation, demand is down so oil speculation is down. Were that the truth, I’d be encouraged. I’m not saying it’s not possible, it’s just not happening yet.
Really, wouldn’t that be cool? A collective effort on part of the American citizenry having a global effect? Yes, that would be cool. It would be empowering.
Forgive me but that’s not what’s happened. Exercises in the Gulf weren’t doing the trick. More missiles should have been photoshopped I guess.
Us sending a diplomat to Switzerland is what happened.
It wouldn’t hurt at all for us to conserve and I don’t doubt that it could have a profound impact on the global economy. The onus is on us as the preeminent species to manage air, food, water and fire anyway. It’s an ecological mandate.
Unfortunately, the entire planet seems to be in an ugly state of nationalism. It’s almost as insidious as religion. It’s as though we seek to define ourselves by our differences while there aren’t so many when compared to our commonalities.
I’m here to tell you that if we don’t start thinking as a people, as opposed to American or Mexican or Catholic or Jew or Muslim or Arab, we will be responsible for our own extinction. It is inevitable. The only guarantee of survival is compassionate cooperation among all people.
We’re such assholes. That’s never gonna happen. Oh well, sorry I brought it up.
Did you know that it takes about two and a half bottles of water to manufacture the bottle you’re drinking water from? Did you know that fuel from corn is one of humakind’s stupidest ideas? Did you know that “bowtie” or “farfalla” pasta is the champion pasta shape for more delicate sauces? It works with gravies of medium density as well. Farfalla means butterflies in Italian. Make sure you use butter and capers.
If it were me instead of Obama, I’d have a tough time sleeping in the same room Dumbya had for eight years. Poor bastard.

Sheezus! Our man opts out of public financing worth about eighty five million dollars and instead, decides to bet on his own fundraising prowess where he’s so far been able to accumulate around a quarter billion.
The ‘duh’ is my sentiment, but Candy Crowley just uttered it on CNN.
You can bet your vagina that if the situation were reversed, the former champions of amassing massive war chests, that would be Republicans, would bust the very same move.
For what it’s worth, Barack raised his money in large part from the people, in small donations. Republicans typically benefit from corporate money.
In all fairness, it is a reversal on the part of our man. However, it is a practical and intelligent decision for Barack to utilize the funds provided by individual American citizens who want to see him as President. Doubtfire calls him a flip flopper less than a week after doing the very same thing on an issue far more important; offshore drilling and expolration. Why, experts speculate that could save us a dollar a barrel in a decade or so. I thought I came up with that last point myself, and I did. Carville beat me to the punch just now on CNN.
Not only that but the poor bastard is pissed because he’s completely outmatched.
Prescience is mine. I hope.
I hope this man will remain accountable to the citizens, the Americans, who have and will fund his ascendancy to the White House because we hope and understand the fierce urgency of now. The imperative for change.
Consider the alternative. See? You have got to be fucking kidding me.
Yesterday his campaign ended up in a minor shitstorm for not allowing some women in tradititional muslim garb to appear behind our man on camera. “Insensitive”, they said. The pot indignantly describes the kettle as more black. The culture fomented by fear mongers and bigots under the guise of terrorism is the reason, right or wrong. The media insists it’s a story. It’s not our story. It’s not that we don’t care, it’s just we’re painfully aware from whence it came.
All I have to say to Cindy Stepford McCain is shut the fuck up. She says she’s always been proud of her country. Well, that’s jingoistic, nationalistic and just plain stupid. She thinks she speaks of patriotism, it’s abundantly clear she has no clue.
Did she take pride in Abu Ghraib? How about the assassinations of 1968? Is she taking pride in the geopolitical/economic disaster her husband has not only been complicit in but helped to engineer? How about the savings and loan scandal her which husband escaped unscathed? How proud of her country and her husband was she when the Little Bootlicker hugged Dumbya and endorsed him after losing the nomination in part for him being accused of fathering an illegitimate black child that they in fact adopted? Or when he voted against fair treatment and a modest education for our troops returning home from an unjustified war in Iraq? Slavery? Was she proud when her doddering husband suggested there was nothing wrong with staying in Iraq for a hundred years? New Orleans? Plamegate? Executive priviledge? Suspension of Habeas Corpus? Tax cuts for the rich? Sean Hannity? Rush Limbaugh? Ann Coulter? Bill O’Reilly? Is she proud of her country for slaughter after slaughter of millions of innocent civilians caught between competing corporate financial interests over the last five decades?
I for one, have been profoundly ashamed of all these things and it’s an abbreviated version of a very long list.
She’s proud of getting richer while everyone else gets poorer.
The phenomena of Barack Obama is reason for me to be be proud of my country for the first time in a very long time. So is Michelle Obama for that matter. They are both, a class act. I can’t wait.
Cindy Stepford McCain might be an asshole, just like the rest of them.
Drinks for my friends.
That’s what we call it. I began utilizing the action (?) as an alternative to the more customary handshake while doing trade shows a handful of years ago.
I’m a little bit of a germaphobe and it seemed an appropriate way to avoid sweaty hands, urine and booger residue. This one guy, big account in the midwest, could throw thirty to fifty thousand our way on a single order. Cool guy. Chronic hyperhidrosis.
He pretty much inspired me to join the cult of the “TERRORIST FIST JAB”.
I’m also a fan of what I call “ass gaskets”. I’m loathe to use a public restroom but I’m a pretty regular guy, if you’re picking up what I’m laying down.
I apologize to all of America for engaging in such blatant and overt support of killing the innocent and subverting Christian dogma. Not only am I a fool, but a patsy as well. I’ve been duped.
I saw that speech where that married couple who might be muslim terrorists did the dreaded “TERRORIST FIST JAB”. I saw it live. I’m ashamed. At the time I thought it was cool. His kinda hot wife gave her man knuckles.
We Americans are so naive and I’m not exempt. What I processed as a simple, perhaps somewhat hip gesture, was really a well understood signal by a pair of evil doers to the evil doers of the world to do more evil.
This is old news to some of you but I just happened onto this raging controversy today. My friend and sometimes sugar momma mentioned it as we jaywalked to my apartment after she sprung for sushi and beer.
“During the June 6 edition of Fox Newsâ€™ Americaâ€™s Pulse, host E.D. Hill teased an upcoming discussion by saying, â€œA fist bump? A pound? A terrorist fist jab? The gesture everyone seems to interpret differently.â€ In the ensuing discussion with Janine Driver â€” whom Hill introduced as â€œa body language expertâ€ â€” Hill referred to the â€œMichelle and Barack Obama fist bump or fist pound,â€ adding that â€œpeople call it all sorts of things.â€ Hill went on to ask Driver: â€œLetâ€™s start with the Barack and Michelle Obama, because thatâ€™s what most people are writing about â€” the fist thump. Is that sort of a signal that young people get?â€ At no point during the discussion did Hill explain her earlier reference to â€œa terrorist fist jab.â€ -crooksandliars.com
Mirror mirror on the wall, who be the most simple minded jingoistic network of all?
This is the silliest shit I’ve ever seen. Color me fucking dumbfounded.
The lowest watermark in public discourse I’ve ever witnessed. That there isn’t widespread outrage over it is definitive proof that we are a nation of dumbasses. I heard on Stewart tonight that only one in seven Americans can find Iraq on a map.
We have managed to elevate a fine man all the way to the contest for President of this once great country. He is perhaps the finest to run for that office in almost half a century.
Fox news can suck a fart out of my ass.
Drinks for my friends.
This whole thing with this ‘sect’ of the LDA in Laredo Texas, serves as one or both of the above. Once again religion rears it’s misshapen countenance right here in America. Texas of all places. Utah, Colorado and Texas.
I’m just saying.
An entire belief system built around the idea that the rape of children by middle aged men is somehow not just permissable in God’s eyes, but an act that is holy. When the sons that are produced by these holy unions come of age, they are seen as competition and discarded.
Now, if that were the history or legacy of my church, I’d tip the fuck out the door.
Kind of ironic that they’ve been under investigation in our own country for four years while we’ve had prisoners in Gitmo for at least as long because someone smelled a little sulphur.
Yep, God works in mysterious ways.
All religion is filthy. Greedy. Self serving and far more concerned about preservation of the bureaucracy than any individual or group.
“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…” -John Lennon
Since it’s inception, the concept of religion has served to explain things, phenomena, coincidence and injustice for which humanity has no other logical explanation. It used to be that religion WAS science. Since inception, religion in almost every form, has accomplished this with lies, corruption and egregious criminality.
It is a very clear and consistent pattern.
The further time marches, the more religion is beset by reason and intelligence.
Let us not dive headlong into the history of wars, genocides and tortures perpetrated in the name of someone’s God. That’s not a book, it’s an encyclopedia.
Religion is at the wheel in our politics no less than any Middle Eastern nation.
Tax the goddamn churches and hang that fucker Cardinal Mahoney for making a career out of protecting pedophile priests. How is that not worse than the LDS whack jobs?
The answer is!
The Catholics are filthy stinking rich.
The single most insidious problem in the world community is and always has been, that in most places, we are are raised with the imperative that in order to be whole and complete, we must worship a God.
I’m calling bullshit on that.
How about self reliance and personal accountability? I’m not the world’s best adjusted human, but it’s worked for me so far.
I’m not here to tell you there isn’t a God. If there is one, I doubt most of us can understand it, and I’m sure as fuck the religions I know aren’t even close. As long as we’re on the subject, not all churches are bad. If you attend to socialize and find ways to do positive things, good for you. Good people are most often the people who make doing the right thing a priority.
At the same time, when I meet an overly zealous man, I understand the chances of him being full of shit are more than good enough for me to bet on.
My name is Michael and I am an agnostic.
Keep your Jesus off my penis.

I’ve been reading this guy for awhile now. He finally really pissed me off. Comment on his blog? I mean, I’d really like that.
Here he is in all his glory

“You African-American Looking Person!!!”
So he’s not so articulate after all. (chuckles) The junior, moslem-born, half-white, half-black, part-time Christian, full-time idiot Senator from Illinois had this to say to the drooling children at ’60 Minutes’ this week:
“Acknowledging that his presidential campaign has opened a racial debate, Sen. Barack Obama, who has a white mother and an African father, says if you look African-American, you are treated like one. Obama and his wife, Michelle, who also addresses the race issue, appear in an interview with Steve Kroft to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES, Sunday Feb. 11 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS television Network. If, as expected, Obama declares his formal candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination tomorrow, it will be his first interview to be broadcast after that event.
When asked by Kroft if growing up in a white household had caused him to make a decision to be black, Obama replies, “I’m not sure I decided it. I think… if you look African American in this society, you’re treated as an African-American.”
A few quick observations. First of all, Steve Kroft? You’re a fucking idiot. Who “chooses” to be black? LMFAO!!! You goddamn liberal geeks just never stop, do you? You “choose” to be black? What a tool. I think even Katie Couric could have done a better job.
“So tell me, Barak, …(ha ha ha) I can call you Barak, can’t I? I call all my friends that. Ha, ha, ha. So tell us, Mr. Osama…..did your dog choose to be black….or white?”
Good Lord,….we live in Hell.
Then, Mr. Osama bin Hezbollah Barak bin Obama responded with the only answer available that was even dumber than Kroft’s stupid question.
“I’m not sure I decided it. I think… if you look African American in this society, you’re treated as an African-American.”
Gee. You mean like how Condoleeza Rice is “treated black”? Or Colin Powell? Is he “treated black”? How about Michael Jordan or Tony Dungy or Tiger Woods? Think people “treat them black”? How about James Earl Jones, Forrest Whitaker, Samuel L. Jackson? Think they get “treated black?”
You know what I think, Mr. Barak bin Hezbollah bin Osama? I think you’re dumber than you are black. Because you’re only half-black, but obviously FULL-BLOODED STUPID. That’s what I think. You’re divisive, inciteful, and racist. But that’s NOT the reason you’re dumber than pig shit.
See, you are a dumbass-jackass. It’s why you’re a Dummycrap. I’ll explain it all to you since you’re apparently too stupid to grasp it for yourself. The only freaks who care about what color you are is Democrats…everyone’s favorite old slavery supporters. Republicans don’t GIVE A SHIT what color you are. We care about YOUR POLITICS, …moron. Republicans LOVE Condoleeza Rice! I’d vote for her in a heartbeat if she ran for President. MILLIONS OF WHITE Republicans would. AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Forget about that one, Barak? If I have another daughter, I’m NAMING HER “Condoleeza”!!! LOLOLOL!!! What do you think about that….you jackass.
The joke is on YOU, …you friggin’ geek!!! (what an idiot….hehehehe….I just can’t resist….someone stop me. I’m having more fun than is legally allowed) Let me educate you a little bit here, Mr. Dumbass. All we the people care about is that you’re a far-left wing fruitcake that represents the socialist movement in America and wants to bring back baby-brain-drilling up till the moment of birth….and that you’re a moslem and lying about that and many other things to us.
But black? LMFAO!!! You wish we cared.
And what is this bullshit line, “get treated like one”? What the hell is that? How do “blacks get treated in America”, Mr. Genius? Care to answer that one? Still sitting at the back of the bus, you racist son-of-a-bitch. Grrrr. I’d like to kick the half-white part of your ass, Barak, since I’d seriously object if you called me a racist for kicking BOTH DUMB HALVES. Hmmm…..for the sake of honesty and integrity, I’m just going to call you a fucking liar and a racist in print. How’s that?
Isn’t it funny when a half-breed tries to play the race card that no one cares about? Obviously you’re too stupid to get elected, Mr. Osama-Obama.
Oh shit, …..nevermind. I just thought of Carter, Clinton, and Pelosi. Uh…I better close for now.
“Treated like a black”. LOLOLOL. Give me a break……you putz.
I think if it were me, I’d have just said, “Oh, I wake-up in the morning and flip a coin. Heads I’m white….tails I’m black.”
Good grief. Wow…..and I just realized that with all those insults I forgot to call him “black”. Oh wow. LMAO!!! …what an idiot.
P.S. Just a “Helpful Hint” for the junior senator who’s never done this before. Please stop with the dark skin make-up before the photo-ops. We’re a little bit more sophisticated than that.
I once guessed that you were the Andrew Dice Clay of the right. Much like Ann Coulter, your shit is so hateful, vile and irresponsible that intelligent people are inclined to believe it’s an act.
On this blog in particular, I gotta hope I’m not being, at the least naive, and not anything like maybe……… blind shit house stupid.
You see, if I’m wrong about you, you’re an ignorant, racist.
You write this ridiculous jingoistic, straw man, ad hominem, biased bullshit and usually it’s at least kinda funny in an over the top kinda way.
You’re not a bad writer. You’ve complimented me before as well. I don’t think you’re stupid.
I think you’re worse. I think you’re willfully ignorant and scared to death.
You write like a man desperately afraid of a world that he just doesn’t understand. Thanks for pointing out that Obama rhymes with Osama. Mark rhymes with Clark. Dick rhymes with Rick. Sometimes they’re even short for the same name.
Tell me you’re not that big of an asshole.
All the celebrities you reference could tell you more than handful of stories about being treated “black” you fucking retard. I guarantee it.
It was at this point that I began to wonder about your point. Fuckhead.
Happy Obama Declaration Day
Obama says, “I’m not sure I decided it. I think… if you look African American in this society, you’re treated as an African-American.”. Based on that single statement lifted directly from your blog, you call/accuse him of being:
“You know what I think, Mr. Barak bin Hezbollah bin Osama? I think you’re dumber than you are black. Because you’re only half-black, but obviously FULL-BLOODED STUPID. That’s what I think. You’re divisive, inciteful, and racist. But that’s NOT the reason you’re dumber than pig shit.”
What he said sounded pretty damn obvious to me and the sense that it represented was, pretty fucking obvious as well. And that, my underpriveledged friend, is something niether you or I will ever have a handle on. At least not like anyone in America today with skin a color other than white.
If you’re a decent comedian, you should be able to deal with the handful of hecklers I’m hoping to point in your direction. Best of luck.
It may be somewhat useless this far down the road, but I need to take exception to one more thing. “Republicans don’t GIVE A SHIT what color you are.”
“The only freaks who care about what color you are is Democrats…everyone’s favorite old slavery supporters.”
WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, FUCK YOU IN THE NECK.
In the middle 1960′s the republican party began to take control of the south by exploiting the racial divide that existed and burned hotter there than any other region of the country. They did so specifically by opposing civil rights legislation, integration and bussing. The modern day southern region of the united states now votes overwhelmingly republican and is still the most overtly racist region of the country.
Seriously. Are you that big of an asshole?
You seem to think that by using Mr. Obama’s name in a sentence with words like “Hezbollah”, you’re making some huge point about evil Islam. Twenty percent of the worlds population is muslim. The majority are peaceful. That fact makes you a fucking idiot.
I’m going to post this as a blog. I’m telling you this to be fair.
Now show me some sack and allow this to go through as a comment on your blog.
I’m sick of your shit.
Drinks for my Friends.
