Which country am I talking about, pray tell? Hm?
(Via Rosetta's update to this poat.)
One of most egregious idiots on this topic has been Jeff Gordon, a long time sports reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and various sports talk stations in town. Well, "Gordo", as he is called, is not hip to the prospect of Limbaugh owning the Rams, and has done his best to pass along the Charles Johnsonesque tripe about Rush and his comments.
Well, an intrepid St. Louis Blogger decided to confront Jeff Gordon on his lies and chronic assholia. Here is the footage.
Well played, young man. Well played.

DENVER — When Coloradoans voted to tie the state’s minimum wage to inflation, they were trying to make sure low-wage workers did not fall too far behind the cost of living. But their vote has had an unintended consequence: Colorado plans to lower its minimum wage next year because of falling inflation rates, becoming the first state in the nation do so.source
Keep a bunch of paper towels handy to clean up the mess.

Shamelessly stolen from Ace's sidebar, I present to you Hugo Chavez, Right Wing Terrorist.
Chavez, who has mixed praise for Obama personally with criticism of his government's "imperialist" policies, said he thought it was a mistake when he read the U.S. leader had won.
"What has Obama done to deserve this prize? The jury put store on his hope for a nuclear arms-free world, forgetting his role in perpetuating his battalions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his decision to install new military bases in Colombia," Chavez wrote in a column.
"For the first time, we are witnessing an award with the nominee having done nothing to deserve it: rewarding someone for a wish that is very far from becoming reality."
Chavez said giving Obama the Nobel award was like giving a baseball pitcher a prize simply for saying he was going to win 50 games and strike out 500 batters.
Wow. Welcome to the club, Hugo.

From the left elite, particularly the Euro left elite's perspective, yeah, he deserved this. The only reason the media and talking heads on the left here aren't collectively having a collective full body orgasm is because they know this shit isn't going to fly politically. America may have elected a Euroleftist, but it isn't a Euroleftist nation.

Funny how the feminists didn't publicly recognize that Letterman was "toxic", "inappropriate", "hostile", and "demoralizing" when he was cracking jokes about Sarah Palin's daughter.
(Thanks to madtechie at the Head Moron's for the graphics idea)
Seriously, what the flying fuck a flailing fish with a fistful of flammable fluids is the matter with these people? When the assfisters in DC aren't kicking around Axelturfing ideas such as this , they are busy finding ways to do doubleplus fucking up retardation such as coddling illegal aliens they catch.
“‘Alternatives to Detention’ is kind of a range of things, and that includes stuff like electronic monitoring or intensive supervision, where people come and report into an office three times a week to a certain deportation officer there. Or have some sort of electronic monitoring,” Brigham said.
As many as 15,000 illegal aliens are already in ATD program, Brigham said.
Brigham said it would be up to ICE officers and case workers to decide whether a non-criminal illegal alien is placed in the “less restrictive” detention in a converted hotel, nursing home or other residential facilities, released and monitored electronically, or required to report to an ICE office a specific number of times per week.
Yeah, this should be a blast.

GOProud is fed up and is calling him out on his duplicity with a pretty nice little ad.

In that vein, I thought of this song:
Today's "winner" is that Dean of Rocket Surgery, Tom Shales:
Dunn Loring, Va.: Just wondered if you've noticed your habit of apologizing for media figues? For example, Polanski rapes and sodomizes a drugged 13-year-old and you write a flattering article that falsely understates his crime; Letterman jokes about the statutory rape of the teenage daughter of a conservative politician and you call the joke inartfully phrased but otherwise fine; Letterman admits to affairs with subordinate employees and you state it's alright because he's just a media personality. Do you ever condemn anything done on TV unless it's done by a conservative?
On Twitter (yes, I use twitter - shut up, is why), I introduced Mr. Shales to the barbed cock of Satan. I would like to publicly withdraw that. I would never ever want Satan's barbed cock to touch Mr. Shales. Why would I do that to Satan?
WHAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU TOM SHALES? WHAT. THE. EVER. LOVING. FUCKITY. FUCK.
In Hollywood a 13 year old isn't a 13 year old? Look, I know *precisely* what you mean and so does everyone else. But the overt sexualization of tweens and young teens (I'm looking at you Disney) is something to be condemned, not something to be celebrated. And "she came to Hollywood so she's asking for it" is VILE. Utterly fucking VILE.
Just for giggles, let's pretend, oh, Rush Limbaugh said that. The screaming for his head from NOW, et al, could be heard from space. I'll keel over in shock if one damn thing happens to Mr. Shales about this.
Mr. Shales, I most certainly hope that each and every acquaintance of yours with a teenage daughter reads that and knows what you think about drugging, raping and sodomizing a 13 year old who dared to go to Hollywood. After all, it's good that parents know the scum to which their children will be exposed.
DIAF Mr. Shales. DIAF.

Add Tibetans to the growing list that includes the British, ordinary Iranians, Iraqis, Hondurans, Israelis, Eastern Europeans, Koreans, and Afghans.
For the first time since 1991, the Tibetan spiritual leader will visit Washington this week and not meet with the president. Since 1991, he has been here 10 times. Most times the meetings have been "drop-in" visits at the White House. The last time he was here, in 2007, however, George W. Bush became the first sitting president to meet with him publicly, at a ceremony at the Capitol in which he awarded the Dalai Lama the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress's highest civilian award.
The U.S. decision to postpone the meeting appears to be part of a strategy to improve ties with China that also includes soft-pedaling criticism of China's human rights and financial policies as well as backing efforts to elevate China's position in international institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund.
Maybe it's just me, but I am starting to get a vibe about this Obama cat and how he views the world.

But it is becoming increasingly clear that liberals haven't just been succumbing to superior message control, or even to a superior political narrative (conservatives' frontier individualism versus liberals' communitarianism). They are up against something far more intractable and far more difficult to defeat. They are up against religion.
Perhaps the single most profound change in our political culture over the last 30 years has been the transformation of conservatism from a political movement, with all the limitations, hedges and forbearances of politics, into a kind of fundamentalist religious movement, with the absolute certainty of religious belief.
Heh. Hahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!! Oh this is fucking rich. We're the ones who have made our political and philosophical movement into a religion? Us?
We're not the ones who spent the campaign chanting Yes We Can! with glazed over eyes. We're not the ones making children sing songs in praise of Barack Obama, both as private citizens and as teachers in public schools, like they're the Hitlerjugend or Kim Jong-il's cultists. We're not the ones who claimed we take actions that could lower the fucking sea level. We're not the ones who tacked up Soviet-style poster of Dear Leader Barack fucking everywhere. We're not the ones who thought there'd be peace in the world when Obama took office. We're not the ones who thought we'd never have to pay another bill again because Obama was elected. We're not the ones who daily praise Obama like he's some fucking Man-God. That's you, motherfuckers. Not us. You. Don't you fucking try and tell me that we're the ones who have created a religious movement. I'll have more on this piece later, I think.

Read that again. He doesn't just want anyone in the GOP to be left out of health insurance or public health options. Oh no. He wants to actually ban anyone in the GOP from obtaining any type of health care.
Who wants to kill who now? Honestly, the fucking hell is wrong with those on the Left who are perfectly content to put these vile opinions out in public. Now, I fully expect him to do the Jon Stewart "clown nose on" and claim that it was A Modest Proposal and of course he didn't mean it and aren't you wingnuts so stupid for not getting it? Except. Except he desperately wants to be taken as a serious commentator. In which case, once again, let me retort. Chainsaw. Rusty. Fuck. You. Some assembly required.
Oh and it's totally a mystery why anyone on the Right would believe that health care would be doled out based on political views. No fucking clue where that concept could be coming from. Not a single one.
Update: After some more serious reflection, I realize that the IOC are nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks, and this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism, straight up.
