Missing the Point

Brent Bozell suggests that real life is different from what's on TV:
None of these TV critics would want to end up in the hospital in real life and answer "yes" to the question "Would you like your nurse to be whacked out on Oxycontin?" In real life, we'd want this woman to go to rehab, and then to marriage counseling. But anything approaching the right moral course would completely ruin all the "black comedy" fun Showtime is having.
Also Tom's owner should simply have called the exterminator to get rid of Jerry.

Keep Up That Fine Editing Work



Really, though, good for K-Lo for coming out against torture.

Doesn't happen often enough.

I have to add, though, that I don't understand why ass-fucking doesn't count as a harsh-interrogation-technique-that-is-not-torture: people do it in their own homes for fun!

Let's All Twitter About Honduras!!!

Bon Jovi Records Version of "Stand by Me" for Iranian People

In further bizarro-culture news via Big Hollywood, heartwarming plays about Ronald Reagan and the pro-life movement aren't getting play in New York! Can you believe it?

Of Note

I have two suckers friends who enjoyed the last Transformers movie.

Both went to see the Imax version of the new one.

Both fell asleep.

Pure Satisfaction

Circle the wagons!
To majority media and other Democrats : we police our own, and you don’t get to judge
Drop dead.

According to my strict interpretation of this writing, no Righteous Bubbas are prohibited from judging, so judge I shall.

HA HA HA.
By all means report the facts. I’m sure you’ll be happy to cover every salacious detail. Have at it. Be sure to cover the pain and suffering of Governor Sanford’s family. While you are at it, cover the depth to which all South Carolina and nation-wide Republicans and conservatives rightly feel betrayed.

Beyond that, just shut up. Shut your lying, hypocritical, power-above-patriotism, hyper-partisan, two-faced, shamelessly double-standard bearing pie hole.

You don’t get to judge.
Let's see this in practice:

1. Mark Sanford is a Republican governor
2. Mark Sanford is married
3. Republicans are the party of family values
4. Mark Sanford vanished, winding up in Argentina to wiggle his weenie in a woman he was not married to
5. I HAVE NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO SAY ABOUT THE FOREGOING
The Library of Congress could hardly contain chapter and verse of the multitudes of ways the press and the other Democrats have gotten away with judging Republicans by wholly different standards than that applied to Democrats.
Er, are Republican standards different or what? I mean, what diaper brand or bathroom stall are we all agreed on?
But that double standard is both obvious and as wide as the Grand Canyon. You show no honor, no equity, no fairness, and no scruples yourselves. You, to put it mildly, do not police your own.

We do. We’ll deal with Sanford.

We have standards (you don’t), and we have a long history of punishing and purging our leaders who prove unworthy of trust.

For your part, serial adulterer Bill Clinton remains a rock star as far as you are concerned, and that about sums up the standards to which Democrats hold themselves.
I believe this sums up the standards to which you hold Democrats.
So, spare us your mock outrage,

your tut-tutting,

your finger-wagging,
Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic
your eyebrows furrowed in anger.
Regrettably I can think of nothing funny involving eyebrows.
If you are well and truly outraged by Mark Sanford’s adultery, but could not trouble yourself to muster even a little mild disapproval against the cretin who wiped his feet with the honor of the office of President of the United States, then you are a hypocrite yourself of the lowest stripe. You are unworthy to judge.

So just shut up.
Not at all outraged so yadda yadda yadda.

But what might this policing mean?

UPDATE!!!


M. Bouffant beats me to it
but a few This Day in History posts will end the embarrassment in a jiffy.

Also forgot to mention I owe Caliph Garrett a cruel one.

Go Tan Go!

Employability

Shorter Mike Adams:
My boss is a crazy bitch!

Tinariwen

We're Just Plain Evil!

Shorter Porkins:
Liberals lie, enslave, impoverish, demoralize, remove jobs, keep kids stupid, and prey on the poor. Liberals also indoctrinate, collude with their cronies, teach junk, employ the unemployable, and like enviro-fag-feelgood programs instead of readin' writin' and 'rithmetic. Liberals furthermore bring in illegal aliens to destroy resident aliens and make everybody poorer and hungrier, while destroying the rule of law, then they preen and hire their new slaves. Liberals, not yet content, are wrong about everything scientific, don't care about anything scientific, and embrace hilariously stupid ideas when they are not killing millions. Liberals lie about right-wing violence to conceal the terrorists and cop-killers they worship and give tenure to.
And this, my friends, is how elections are won by liberals.

Perspective

In trying to figure out what Obama should and shouldn't yell at Iran about when the situation is touchy, it might be worth noting that US allies - perhaps "projects" is a better word - Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan are on her borders.

They're all doing just fine.
