bitchslap X2

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of New Orleans, and southern Louisiana, at this time. Too bad some people don't care.

Case in point: Rush Limbaugh thought it would be really funny to call Hurricane Katrina Hurricane Katrina Vanden Heuvel," so as to get a dig in at the author in question. And Jonah Goldberg had to jump in on the laugh brigade.

80% of that beautiful city is under water, and who knows how many are dead?

Great going, guys.Maybe between this and Anne Coulter's smear of New York people will realize that some of these right-wing commentators don't deserve our time, thought and money.

Not likely, I know.

Meanwhile, over at Moonbat, a typical smear (calling Justin Raimondo a "neo-nazi") has backfired, courtesy of someone who writes for showing up to pee on the parade.

I have no doubt the poor fellow will soon be shown to the door, but it's always nice to see truth spoken to powerful lies.

Juan Cole on Iraq

This is worth reading, and not only because the War Party despises Cole for constantly humiliating them.

You Talkin' ta Me, Bitch?

Courtesy of Crooks and Liars:

" and it's far preferable to fight them in the streets of Baghdad than in the streets of New York (where the residents would immediately surrender)" says Anne Coulter in a recent op-ed.

Colmes: You don't feel that New Yorkers are cowards?


Coulter: ahhh...I think they would immediately surrender...

The Video can be found here

Note how she looks to her left with a worried expression just before she answers that question. Also note her body language.

The woman's a fruitloop.

Heavy Irony, Man (8 25 2005)

Yesterday, as I left work, I spied a big, blue van with Michigan 'Sunset' plates. The stickers on the back read - from bottom to top - 'Jesus Rocks,' 'Love Wins' and then aW 04 from the last presidential election.

Speaking of irony, here's the pictures of Camp Reality, courtesy of NRO's 'the buzz'. Note how... empty the camp appears to be.

CBN: the Clueless Broadcasting Network

More amusing quotes, courtesy of Pat Robertson (courtesy of Norbizness)

(5) "[Planned Parenthood] is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism -- everything that the Bible condemns."

(7) “Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson accused President Bush of ‘undermining a Christian, Baptist president to bring in Muslim rebels’ by asking Liberian President Charles Taylor, recently indicted for war crimes, to step down.”.

(10) "You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them."

There's also "I want to be invisible. I do guerrilla warfare. I paint my face at night. You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag. You don't know until it's election night." which was credited to Robertson for years, but was actually courtesy of Ralph Reed... who's been a very naughty boy, lately.

Fight for your right to party - Utah

About 60 people were arrested Saturday night when police officers busted an illegal rave in Spanish Fork Canyon, says the Salt Lake Tribune

Here's a video of the bust.

The people involved in the rave say they had permits and insurance, though - which means it wasn't illegal.

How coincidental that Bush was speaking in Utah the very next day.

Who Would Jesus Assassinate...?

PAT ROBERTSON: There was a popular coup that overthrew him [Chavez]. And what did the United States State Department do about it? Virtually nothing. And as a result, within about 48 hours that coup was broken; Chavez was back in power, but we had a chance to move in. He has destroyed the Venezuelan economy, and he's going to make that a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism all over the continent.

You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger and the United ... This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.

You know, I was wondering when Mad Pat might take an opportunity to shit all over himself. Guess I got my answer.

So... are we going to hear how dangerous and untrustworthy Christianity is, based on the insane and bloodthirsty political ramblings of a highly-regarded and well-placed conservative TV Preacher? Or is that smear reserved for highly-regarded and well-placed mullahs in the Kingdom?

Utterly disgusting.

Do The Stroke

Cindy Sheehan's mother has suffered a serious stroke, and Mrs. Sheehan has left Crawford to be with her. The crowd at Moonbat was, of course, not obligated to be sympathetic. But then, one cannot expect table manners from pigs and dogs.

In spite of my criticism of some of a crazier things Mrs. Sheehan has said, my thoughts are with her and her mother at this time. I certainly hope her mother didn't suffer too much damage, and is back on her feet soon.

Guilt by Glomming

Courtesy of this breathless piece from Frontpage, American Nazi Idol, we find out that American racist isolationists love Cindy Sheehan.

This is, of course, as opposed to the American racists who love how we stomp "arabs," and hang out on the blog at Frontpage's sister site, Discover the Network.

Nothing like a little reciprocity between "friends," huh?

The Matrix Has You (8/17/2005)

From the August 15 broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show:

LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.

So, does he mean she's making up that her son is dead, or...? What?

I think that ass cyst that kept Rush out of 'Nam is transmigrating to his noggin, again.

And then there's this, from Daily Kos, about that suspicious "iraqi" woman who had to come down to Crawford to "swiftboat" Cindy Sheehan.

So, Rush think Cindy's making it up, while Kos thinks some VOA people are making something else up.

Is this the point where Jacques Derrida jumps out from behind the bushes?

Jon Stewart / Frontpage on Sheehan

Courtesy of Crooks and Liars It's worth the wait to download. : )

As a followup to Right Message, Wrong Mother, I offer this article from FuckIslam... *cough* excuse me, Frontpage* magazine, in which we discover that Mrs. Sheehan thought - in May - that convicted terrorist conspirator Lynne Stewart was akin to Atticus Finch.


Of course, the chances of this being picked up by the mainstream media is slim to none, so it's more than likely Mrs. Sheehan will stay that Mild-Mannered Mom. But damn, talk about having some sour baggage on the road behind.

* Anything from Frontpage should be taken with a grain of salt, if not a Siberian salt mine, but even a broken clock gets the right time twice a day. In this case, it's not their facts I question, but what they're doing with them. But even then, I'd sooner trust a ten year old boy to Michael Jackson than stake my life on anything I read there - take it as you will.

(back!) Right Message, Wrong Mother

... and we're back! Miss us? ; )

But this does reveal a good point: there are serious questions we need to be asking the White House about the past, present and future of our conflict in Iraq - questions the mainstream media isn’t asking. But is Cindy Sheehan really the best person to be asking these questions? .

Right now I have to say no

Come find out why at Right Message, Wrong Mother.

Speaking of mothers, a happy birthday to my own. : )

And speaking of the mother of all hypocrisies, check out the following statements by familiar faces during the Kosovo conflict, courtesy of Daily Kos:

"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy."

-Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of presidential candidate George W. Bush

"President Clinton is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy."

-Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"No goal, no objective, not until we have those things and a compelling case is made, then I say, back out of it, because innocent people are going to die for nothing. That's why I'm against it."

-Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/5/99

"I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our overextended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today"


"You can support the troops but not the president"

-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

The Use-America Right likes to ask 'where were the anti-war protesters during Kosovo?' Well, gee, now we can remember who they were...
