Aaaaaaand we hear criticism like this (no doubt repeated in a Michael Moore movie and throughout our impartial MSM) in 3...2...1...yeah.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go take a shower.

Asserting that the practice of lobbing fish above the heads of patrons and tourists at the market and other venues is disrespectful to creatures that already have gone through a lot, an animal rights group is protesting plans to stage a flying-fish exhibition at an upcoming national veterinarians conference in Seattle.Pointing this out is probably futile, but first of all, they're fish, and—bear with me here—they're already dead. I sort of doubt that respect is much of a priority for a dead halibut.

"There was no consultation, we just received a letter that this is a done deal, which is totally unfair," Bill Bavis, who retired six years ago after 32 years at Molson's in St. John's, Newfoundland, told the Star. "I think with the economic downturn they're trying to take advantage of us, as a way to cut retirees' benefits and justify it."Is it health care? No, they get "free" health care from the government (just like we're about to—yay!). Is it their pensions? No, it's something much more important. Click here to find out what it is, and prepare to be filled with the rage of a billion white-hot suns.

All of that said, this is just a leeeeetle bit over the top:
A Nebraska abortion provider has likened the murder of fellow late-term abortion Dr. George Tiller to the assassination of this country's most renowned civil rights leader. The Washington Times reports that Dr. LeRoy Carhart says: "This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated. This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitanian [sic] and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long."Um, really? I have no idea what MLK thought about abortion, but I suspect that as a clergyman, he might have disapproved of it. Especially the late-term variety. But comparing Tiller's murder to the events that plunged our country into two World Wars? Yeah, that's kind of fucking stupid. Dumbass.

Osama is the withered and quivering Gollum -- seething with envy and nursing his precious hatred -- to Obama's robust and hope-driven Frodo. The forces of darkness and light personified.What are you, twelve?
Kathleen then goes on to say that Obama "defused" Achmadinnerjacket with his pretty, pretty words with the following dumbassery:
He makes perfect sense in a perfectly sensible world. Most sane people want to live without the nagging threat of obliteration. And most would agree that reasonable people have the right to access nuclear power for nonviolent purposes.
But we know Iran's president to be un-sane and un-reasonable. Just the day before Obama's Cairo speech, Ahmadinejad repeated his belief that the Holocaust was a "big deception."
In his own remarks, Obama said that denying the fact of the Holocaust is "baseless," "ignorant" and "hateful." If Ahmadinejad didn't recognize himself, surely the rest of the world did, including Iranians who will vote in their country's presidential election this month.
Riiiiiiiight. First of all, I doubt the people of Iran are quite as enamored of Obama's opinions as you are. Secondly, um, the Holocaust denial thing is sort of a feature, not a bug in that particular corner of the world. Only an idiot wouldn't recognize that.

In today’s speech in Cairo, the President outlined his personal commitment to engagement with Muslim communities, based on mutual respect. He also emphasized that Islam and America are not competing identities and that the U.S. has a long history of defending freedom of faith, including going to court over it if need be. All of these aspects of the American tradition are woven into the story the President referenced of our Justice Department arguing for the right of a Muslim student to wear the hijab to school:Yeah, except that he had nothing to do with that. The White House website goes on to mention that the case he's referring to took place in 2004.Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one's religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state in our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That's why the United States government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab and to punish those who would deny it. (Applause.)
Who was president back then? Aw, who cares. That's ancient history.
(Unless he can use that ancient history to score points against a certain someone, that is.)
Some Internet commentary even refers to Roeder as a "Christian terrorist." Let's see: Christian, pro-gun, anti-government, pro-life. Sounds like a Republican, right? Oh, and he's suspected of being an assassin. Connect them dots.
No, it isn't fair. The GOP can't control who joins the party, and Republicans don't have a corner on random crazies. But what the Democrats have that the Republicans lack is a moderating voice to neutralize the party's more strident characters. While Democrats have Obama, Republicans are stuck with the squeakiest wheel du jour.
I'd ask where you were for the last eight years of BDS, assassination fantasies, and "random crazies", but, oh, that's right, you were hanging out with your MSM buddies. Sure, nobody actually pulled the trigger, but I'm not picturing many mourners at your DC cocktail parties had someone done so.
Also, nice to see that you're still crushing on Barry. You should invite David Brooks, Peggy Noonan, and Christopher Buckley over for a slumber party.
Oh, and take a guess as to which incident gets nary a mention in her column. None of the "more strident characters" on the left might have had an influence on that, Kathleen, would they?

"It's disgusting and really cruel," wrote one poster on the popular portal sina.com.cn.
"Not only is it cruel and blood-thirsty, but totally amoral," the Chongqing Business Daily cited a neighbor to one of the restaurants as saying.
Health authorities in Guangdong have already told restaurants to stop serving "poisonous snake-bitten chicken" and now those in Chongqing have joined in.
"Although nobody has been poisoned, this at the very least is an irregular way of slaughtering poultry," the business newspaper quoted a local health official as saying.
