It feels a bit like 9/11 on Martha's Vineyard. End-of-summer weather is achingly beautiful but the mood is melancholy because of Teddy.
Yeah, just like 9/11, Matt. Just like it.
You little bastard.

I'm sure the critics who assumed that it was some kind of racist slur against President Obama will step up and admit that they were wrong.
August 14, 2009
I want to make something clear, I most certainly hope that the windowlicking, slackjawed, mouthbreathing idiot who showed up with the death to Obama and death to his family signs got investigated, up to and including anal probing, by the Secret Service. I mean that's kinda, sorta, just a tiny bit of a red flag that maybe you should be having a chat with the nice lads and ladies with the shades, ear pieces and weaponry. And then possibly accidentally fall down a few flights of stairs after the interview. Just. Sayin'.
However, I find it beyond fucking rich that all the hand wringing is about the violent rhetoric aimed at Obama. What about the violent rhetoric aimed at me by those who do have the power to completely fuck with my life? Let's see, Nancy Pelosi thinks I'm unAmerican. Harry Reid thinks I'm an evilmonger. There was the lovely comment that we're all like Timothy McVeigh. There's the racist accusations. There's the comments about how this is the civil rights era and references to Bull Connor and the dogs and the hoses. But ABC sure as motherfucking hell doesn't seem to give a single shit that politicians are fucking attacking their bosses for having the fucking audacity to stand up and disagree.
Fuck. Them. All. Seriously. Fuck them all with the barbed cock of Satan (hint for the reading comprehension impaired - HYPERBOLE NOT A THREAT FOR FUCK'S SAKE YOU SUBCRETINOUS ILLITERATE JACKHOLES) You want to know why people are full of the ragey rage? Because Minitru sure as fuck didn't give a shit about the rhetoric about killing Bush. And Minitru sure as fuck doesn't seem to care that Nancy Pelosi, that brain dead botox container, STARTED THE NAZI SHIT.
Barack Obama's campaign slogan "Yes we can!" became "Yes we did!" on November 4, 2008, thrilling his supporters nationwide.
Evidently, NBC also was quite pleased with the win, and the news network is still celebrating.
NBC is selling "YES WE DID" t-shirts online as well as at its Manhattan company store in Rockefeller Center.
"We," NBC? Do you have a mouse in your pocket or are you just admitting how deep you're in the tank for Obama?
Yeah, I think I'm gonna go with the latter. And seeing as how NBC (along with most of the MSM) chose to sit on their hands when they could have been doing their jobs by vetting the empty suit who now occupies the Oval Office, I'd say the "We" is entirely appropriate.
(Via Treacher, who has a suggestion for a new design that may be on the racks in the not-too-distant future.)

(I know, shocking, huh?)
Update: A thought just occurred to me: If "conservative" columnist Kathleen actually bothered to pay attention to, you know, conservative blogs and websites, she wouldn't have included such a stupid, shopworn lie in her column.
Gee, I wonder who she's actually listening to.

Democrats will have plenty of ammunition in their effort to cast Bachmann as an out-of-control ideologue.No, it wasn't just a speech. They weren't just her remarks. It was a diatribe. Frankly, I'm disappointed that the writer, Alex Isenstadt, didn't mention that she was frothing at the mouth.
In June, during a diatribe in a House floor speech on the size of the federal government, Bachmann derided what she called Obama's "gangster government."

From today's Q&A at the White House:
TAPPER: The DNC put out a video earlier this week basically saying all of the protesters were birth certificate-denying, angry mob, hordes. I mean, it wasn't exactly a video that described the protesters in accordance with the respect and dignity you just spoke of.
GIBBS: Well, again, I think we've seen -- as you mentioned, we've seen some stuff that I think is -- I mentioned it a week ago, I think, or maybe it was earlier this week. It all sort of blurs together. You know, that we've all seen imagery that really just shocks and surprises us. I think the best thing to do is to take that temperature down a bit.
Why is this bless you Tapper? Because at least he freaking asked Gibbs about it. Plus, you know, always fun to see Gibbs getting kicked in the head about stuff. But maybe that's just me.
Also, I love love love Gibbs all oh we have to take the temperature down a bit after the motherfucking ass fucks at the DNC called all of us Birthers. Nice. Real nice.
I do think a tipping point has come and people are just sick to death of being kicked in the teeth. At a certain point, being called a Nazi Racist Birther stops having any meaning and become white noise. I think we're at that point.

For the hipsters, post-hipsters or quasi-hipsters who moved into Columbia Heights several years ago for the grit and the cheap rent and the proximity to the Wonderland Ballroom (the hipster, post-hipster or quasi-hipster bar that sponsors local music and nights like "Sundress Fest"), life can be divided into two discrete phases: Before Target. After Target.Say it ain't so! Being able to purchase things when you want them, without taking 2-3 metro stops? How shudder suburban*. Anyway, she tries to bring balance by noting that, thank God, people still get stabbed in her quaint little neighborhood:
Columbia Heights is still edgy. A few blocks from the Target, semi-permanent police cars monitor the muggings and shootings that still happen, in broad daylight, even -- as happened a few weeks ago -- at the Metro.Thank Heavens for small favors, eh? I have to go eat a (horrible tasting) salad for lunch right now, though, so I'll let DCist pick up where I left off. And Monica, if you're reading, you need to chill, hun. There are plenty of edgy, crime-ridden abodes in Anacostia if that's what you're looking for.
*Confession: I consider North Arlington the 'burbs, and do make fun of people who live there. So, I suppose I shouldn't cast too many stones at Ms. Hesse. But still...

There's tons of comedy gold here, particularly the part about Chip Cronkite sending an email to the NYT ahead of time to warn about errors.
However, there's a serious part to this too. The Times did this in an article about someone that the MSM considered a legend. The Times did this to a person the MSM all but worships. But we're totally supposed to just believe that everything else isn't this full of Fail. Uh. Huh.
There's also the "joke" quote in the ashtray Cronkite had "“Just give me the facts: I’ll mix ’em up when I quote you.”" Frankly, that certainly seems the way that the quotations are handled.
But still. This is point and laugh funny. ha HA!
