dick morris talks about sexual misconduct???

no no no.  does fox news have no sense of irony?  you have toe-sucking whoremonger dick morris on the hannity fuckfest show to talk about hermentum fucking with the help?  jesus fucking christ, that's funny.  plus that weaselly creep has a children's book.  i'm sure that's just lovely...

werewolves of highland, better than extract

new beavis and butthead was pretty funny.  quick and stupid just like the old days.  the werewolves part was good, just as silly as any of those stupid vampire chick movies.  nicely done.  better than extract.

a high-tech lynching of another serial harasser

hermentum cannot be trusted around the help.  go figure!

is the velocipede salon the anti-serotta forum?

not really, but i have been reading the aforementioned velocipede salon in preparation for the looming terotta tankruptcy when the idiot's delight known as the serotta forum will be nothing but a pathetic memory.  it will be sad to see that particular form of guilty-pleasure entertainment join the great circle-jerk in the sky.

colts season tickets?

are you feeling lucky, punk?

it snowed, so al gore is fat

right-wing fucktards like eric bolling don't understand science, the scientific method, scepticism, mathematics, the difference between weather and climate, the difference between global warming and global climate change, or much of anything of all.  people like him are too stupid to think for themselves, so they just repeat what they are told.  they are the definition of waste of space, but they wouldn't understand that either.

it's halloween!

when i told someone to buy saab...

i didn't mean the fucking chinese.  when their economy collapses, maybe i'll buy that for a dollar.  anyway, i guess it's better than chrysler or the fucking germans.

fox news in full panic mode over ohio

rupert murdoch and the koch-sucker brothers must be really pissed at how badly john kasich has fucked up their union-busting plans in ohio.  when this thing goes down to ignominious defeat, kasich will be up there with goat-fucker scott walker as the biggest koch brothers investment disaster of the decade.

less informed and more odious than the serotta forum: this ain't hell forum

it's true.  the serotta forum members are mostly just douchebags, but here is a self-selected group of vile cretins who are much more disgusting and much more dangerous because of the debilitating soldier-worship that pervades our ignorant modern-american society.  maybe these fools should be pitied instead of despised.  they are scary-stupid, and the rest of us have to push for progress and justice while these dopes sit in the corner jerking off and flinging shit.

disposable income vs. rank stupidity: the serotta forum

yep, serotta bicycles is probably going out of business because of the owner's lifestyle, his million dollar house and the fact that they only sell 700 crappy, overpriced frames a year, so the idiots delight known as the serotta forum will soon be gone in all likelihood.  too bad, because where else will you able to marvel at idiots who buy bicycles that cost as much as a good used car and then never ride them, allowing the second owner to attempt to sell it with less than a couple of thousand miles.  assholes.

breaking: o'reilly is teasing a bit on underage sex!!

shocking!! o'reilly is really a sick fucking pervert, on top of being a moron and an asshole.

jesus, geraldo smacked o'reilly around tonight as well

o'reilly acted like he'd never been on tee vee show before, and it is his own show!  geraldo looked like he was gonna reach out and bitch slap o'reilly tonight.  o'reilly may have had a stroke or something this afternoon, cuz even for him he looked clueless and divorced from reality.

o'reilly looks really spooked on his show tonight

and it's not anything about halloween!  the occupy movement has these fools really confused and scared.  all o'reilly can do is sputter and spew; the two ladies on his opening really stole his lunch money tonight.  this is one of the best outcomes of the occupy movement.  watching the establishment piss their pants is pure comedy gold.

jay sekulow is the latest fox news poster fool

jay sekulow got his start with pat robertson as a pathetic jew for jesus.  is there anything lamer than that?  now that he's all over fox news channel, pat robertson's insane, ignorant, diseased, jesus-freak worldview continues to spread.

if you are playin' in the world series, shouldn't you be able to catch a baseball?

no?  really?

rachel maddow and pat buchanan

before she had her own show, rachel maddow shared air time with pat buchanan plenty of times and not once did she tear him a new asshole for being a racist, homophobic asshole.

dr who sings the mekons greatest hits

south park on broadway

more cheap comedy.  blowjobs.  pretty funny for 3 or 4 minutes, tedious by the end of the show.

mayor quan's got balls

is she really gonna talk to the occupy oakland protest in person?  geez, that's an interesting stunt.

the golden age of michael moore

occupy wall street was made for michael moore.  even though the establishment democrats don't love michael moore because he is really not an establishment democrat in any way shape or form, there is amazing confluence of michael moore the public intellectual and the occupy wall street movement.  basic ideas vs. entrenched privilege as entertainment in opposition to snark and cheap comedy.

olbermann or shultz

olbermann tonight was leading with the occupy movement and oakland in particular.  shultz was leading with attacks on well-known asshole republican paul ryan.  very interesting.  so it's either a true people's revolution on one channel or the petty political horserace on the other.  very very interesting.

oakland mayor gives in...should give up

she's a real piece of work.  apparently her story is that she had no idea what was going on, but now she's had backed down in the face of the protesters.  that's a good thing.  let's hope that occupy oakland is able to use this victory to move forward and co-opt support from as many of the rank and file cops as are decent.

lawrence o'donnell pissing on trump is pretty entertaining

but it's starting to look like someone flicking boogers on a retard.  trump is a circus clown, but o'donnell is a little too happy with himself picking on that mentally-ill fuckwad.

is there something wrong if i think the harold and kumar might be good?

just about all films these days are so bland and lifeless that sometimes the silly and profane seems profound.  fucking pg-13.

new beavis and butthead

this has the potential of one of the world's great trainwrecks.  or will it, like chinese democracy, just sink without a whimper?

oakland was always hell on earth

i mean, it's oakland.  but what the fuck.  shooting at people with a thousand cameras watching was just fucking stupid.  the cops in oakland have issues; if that kid dies, they're fucked.

too bad the fat guy from justified is doing a cain spot

he comes across as an interesting character actor on justified but as an utter dipshit in support of hermentum.

flat tax is like a stupid detector

steve forbes, well known douchebag son of a rich queen, is a fan of the flat tax because it would save him a shitload of money, but he is still a fucking moron because the flat tax would be a disaster for everyone else and especially for the country at large.  now well-known texas retard rick perry is waving his postcard around like he just painted his name on the wall in his own shit.  our political economy is a cesspool.

wolcott boosts counterpunch

james wolcott's place is one of the few in the establishment blogland where you will see the existence of the wonderful counterpunch acknowledged.  apparently wolcott reads it and gets it, and he's getting the word out about their fundraising drive.  good goods.

awesome scary comic book

as seen on lawyers buns and money, this hilarious outrage is a fucking awesome nugget of our unique american fucked-upedness.  unreal.

health care in america is a disaster. still a disaster.

it's not 1950.  or 1970.  or 1992.  or 2009.  and the health care situation in america continues to deteriorate.  the failing system costs money, but worse, it costs lives.  what passes for leadership in this country refuses to address the situation rationally.  if we cannot figure out what the rest of the developed world has mastered, we are doomed.

we are doomed.

so, the shultz/o'donnell switch happened; is ron reagan jr. coming on board?

but i still don't get it.  sure it's called 'the last word' but it looks and feels like msnbc is floundering in general.  they've lost their anchor in olbermann and their most interesting additions like sharpton and hayes are far out of prime time.  what's next for them?  ron reagan jr.?

disposable $5000 29er frame

if you crash this you probably just have to go home and kill yourself.  you are the 99%.

julie christie, the rumors are true

who will mittens pick?

who will romney anoint as the his veep?  now that perry has fucked up, cain has gone nuts and bachmann has become irrelevant, will mittens pick some boring campaigner like pawlenty?  assuming he doesn't need a stunt pick like a palin, it will be difficult for him to pick a candidate so invisible that he or she won't outshine his lack-of personality.

bill bennett and bill o'reilly: 2 1-watt bulbs

hearing bill bennett and bill o'reilly talk about bringing in lots of men to be with boys is somehow wrong wrong wrong.  a couple of horrible fuckers right there.

rahm emanuel is one of obama's closest politcal allies

wretched douchenozzle and petty facist rahm emanuel did his best to derail the occupy movement in chicago with a photo-op mass arrest.  let's all remember that this asshole is one of barack obama's closest political allies and advisors.  it's nice and all that he's out of the whitehouse, but this is just another example of the disgusting crew obama pals around with.

rentboy cannot possibly be real

this has to be a joke.  a site called rentboy has to be a spoof created specifically to embarrass closet-case republicans.  i mean, come on.  rentboy?  no fucking way.

the very pleasant neighbor

on a better planet, these guys would have been selling out stadia while nobody would have heard of creed.

the anti-serotta: waterford road frames are good.

no, they aren't made with 753 anymore, and their custom lugs are kinda goofy with the integrated cable guides, and they don't come with proper fluted seatstay caps or horizontal dropouts, but waterford lugged frames are good and a good value these days.  you can get downtube shifter bosses and simple lugs and a nice paintjob.  this is not serotta with shitty, overpriced frames; this is a company that will be around a while.  they are the only lugged contract builder/factory in the united states and do great work for rivendell and boulder bikes and others i'm sure.  i'm also sure that richard schwinn isn't wringing money out of the company so he can have a music room or huge bmw.  how can you tell?  their frames cost less than most every custom builder out there.  they are committed to lugs and steel.  they are the anti-serotta.  fuck  yeah.

$26,000 a year

$26,000 a year.  that's the median income last year.  with median household income at $49000 a year, the next time some says that families making $250,000 a year are struggling, tell them to kindly go fuck themselves.  with wage structures like this, our economy will always be fucked.  folks making $26,000 a year each are not saving anything for the future and are spending every single cent they make just to get through another week.  everyone, even the miserable koch brothers, suffers when much of our country is so close to poverty.  we are a stupid nation and we deserve what we are going to get sooner or later.

more on ancient & modern

you really need to support the best band ever and get their new record.  or cd.  or 8-track.  something.  it's an album that begs for repeat listenings.  it's an ambitious and coherent record.  it takes some of the themes familiar on the last few albums and expands them and expands upon them.  the complete, 8-mekon lineup sounds energized and involved.  it's amazing how much of an anchor lu edmonds and his electric saz are now.  just as big a part of the band's sound as suzy's violin or rico's accordion.  it's an outstanding addition to the rock 'n roll formula.

terotta tankruptcy

looks like we won't have them to kick around much longer.  still, when the owner's house is up for sale $1.1 million, you might want to consider buying a bike from someone not so interested in selling over-priced bikes to subsidize an extravagant lifestyle.  if he wasn't so interested in living like a robber baron, perhaps the ti frames wouldn't cost 3 times what some better custom ti frames cost.  assholes.  i'm sure he's already squeezed as much cash out of the company as he can for himself; the workers will have to settle for unemployment.  for a million and a half you can buy the serotta factory.  how the fuck did they think they could sell 5000 bikes a year??

eric cantor is a pussy

pussy.

for the love of pete, somebody buy saab

i know they deserve to die for not having a proper manual transmission available in the new 9-5 aero, but if somebody doesn't buy the company, i'm not gonna be able to get my desired car: a 6-speed manual 9-5 with the hirsch performance upgrade and better-spec interior, fjord blue or metallic black with the black leather interior and all the options.  chop chop motherfrakkers.

even the liberal new york times isn't, version 4978201

this is a liberal?  no, of course not, but according the new york times and national public radio, he is.  for the record, bork was no intellectual; he was a movement conservative, narrow-minded and ignorant.  rather than his denial being a low-water mark for american politics, it was instead a pattern that the senate democrats should have maintained in later years to keep the current crop of dim-witted reactionary retards, scalia, thomas, roberts, alito, off the court.  america would be a better place today if the borking was a rule instead of an exception.

this is how science is supposed to work

well, not the koch brothers funding part.  and not the hysterical ill-informed denials.  and not the political bullshit, but the fact the the koch-suckers thought they were buying a brain-dead, climate-denying hack, and instead bought a reasonably thoughtful scientist is pretty fucking funny.

maddow had a cute little rant about pensions and retirement tonight

finally someone on the tee vee calling 401k's a scam!  wall street steals 28% of your retirement money and private companies get to play much less in real terms since they don't pay pensions anymore!  we are fucking morons, and we keep smiling as we get raped year after year.  good for maddow.  she seemed genuinely pissed.

jungle jack hanna and his hat looked pretty zoned tonight

jungle jack hanna was on maddow tonight to defend the republican governor and look freaked out and tired after the slaughter he witnessed.  he's definitely a douche but he looked pretty out of it tonight.

has robert reich lost it?

he was on with tweety pushing his economic plan.  did he really say cut the military in half?  what what what??  too bad he didn't have balls to talk like this when he was fluffing bubba's disastrous presidency.  70% top marginal rate?  it's a good start.

forgive them, they are young and rich and white

pampered scumbag andrew cuomo proves that he is and will always be a trusted servant.  he learned the lessons of the kennedy family well, even if his wife preferred the stable boy.

are you 53% stupid?

lots has been said about how pathetic the 53% participants are, with so many of them seeming to be victims of the same fucked-up economic and social system they are foolishly praising.  and that is true.  so many of those assholes brag of having no health insurance or being unemployed or working murderous hours just to get by.  can it really be that they are too stupid to know they are being exploited, not just by that moron erick erickson's inane stunt, but also by the system they apparently don't know is broken.

that said, i bet most of those posts are bullshit anyway, either utter fabrications by erickson's people or made-up nonsense by the posters.

what's up with ed shultz and lawrence o'donnell?

why the switch?  what's the play?  do they think big ed might not get so badly creamed by olbermann?  i don't see that, so it must be about cnn.

jim demint, sweet jeebus

that's one dim bulb.  the elected servants of our ruling class tell a very sad story about the true state of our nation.

does cain think he can be romney's veep?

hermentum backing up mittens?  after the debate it seems cain is kissing romney's ass hard to get that affirmative action spot, but that does not seem like a good fit.  will romney's people think cain can deliver the bigot asshole teabagger jesus-freak vote?  there seems to be one issue with that: a romney/cain ticket will be two minorities attempting to scoop up as many of those closed-mined republican fuckers as possible.  not a sure thing.

is there any sin the catholic church has not committed

these people are just evil.  they wanna fuck the kids, sure, we knew that, but they like stealing them, too.

has the randy randy hopper hopped his last

stupid fucker.  his whore was in the car with him, too.  with any luck he will have hopped his last.

what it is don't come in a bottle

scary: hannity interviews trump.  that much clueless in one room should really cause the universe to implode.  only the love of jeebus keeps us here with those two dickheads among us.

charles payne should not try to argue against people who are smarter than he is

and that would be pretty much anybody.  he got smacked around by occupy wall street and was stupid enough to allow it to be broadcast on fox news.  his personal story is such bullshit; he's an uncle tom for the fox generation.

eric has an extensive botox treatment

this was the view we had of the show.  i did not record this.

chris hitchens pummels the mormon cult

weird and insane chris hitchens stomps all over the really weird and really insane cult of mormonism, a uniquely american twist on the religious derangement.  as soon as you learn just a little about how creepy and sick many of their beliefs are, you should examine the more established religions and see the horrible truth about them as well, but the mormons are fucking out there, a nasty little group of freaks and perverts, the diseased product of an especially bad time in american history.

eric cantor and paul ryan

watching these two clowns, one question comes to mind: is this the best that a major american political party can do?  i mean, these two assholes are just about too stupid to breathe and yet, there they are.

carbon quandry: appleman custom vs. crumpton corsa team

this is a question for the ages if you are looking for a plastic carbon road bike frame before 1 january 2012.  the crumpton corsa team is a good-looking made-in-italy stock carbon frameset for almost 4 grand.  for 3.5 grand this year, you could also get a custom appleman.  i'm not sure what i would or will do.  the crumpton is a nice looking sled, but the chance to get it tweeked is a strong incentive.  the only other carbon frame i'd consider would be from carl strong, but they're crumpton-expensive.

ows earns its place in history

watching the hysterical coverage that the occupy movement has generated, it is obvious that the ruling elite are now concerned for the future.  that is a lovely thing.

the end of pat buchanan's sad career

if that horrible fuckwad can be on fox news to push his asinine racist book, can we hope that he will never be seen on any other tee vee outlet ever again?  of course not.  but he sucks.

mekons at city winery

the mighty mighty mekons in a snazzy restaurant.  who woulda thunk it, though the mekons have a history of sit-down shows from way back on the natural tour, so it was a natural extension of their current zeitgeist to play such a venue.  the new stuff fit in well with the old stuff, and tom looked quite a bit more comfortable than he did on friday in brooklyn.  in 2007, i was struck at how much tom was the leader of the band on stage, but after four years without seeing him perform with the band, notably missing the epic mercury lounge show in 2009, i thought he was a little lost on friday but looked more natural on saturday.  all in all, it was a great experience, with a nice atmosphere and great sound.  highly recommended.  the banter was especially sharp that night as well.  a nice bootleg of the show can be found here.  highly recommended too.

the latest war

watching all the assholes out there scream and cry in support of the latest and greatest american war against evil where our oil lives, you cannot help but be depressed.  firedoglake was an interesting example with snarky moron tbogg getting into it with some of our more clear-headed citizens and this followup bringing all the good democratic warriors out again.

after all the idiocy we've heard just in the last week, anyone who believes obama's story about uganda is an asshole themselves.  we only kill bad people when they live on top of shit we need.

an unfortunate world series

in a sport full of unpleasant people, it would be hard to come up with two organizations with worse people than the cardinals and the rangers.  george w. bush.  nolan ryan.  tony larussa.  albert pujols.  jesus.  making the normal grade of asshole associated with majors look like good people.

Thursday, October 13, 2011

who's more pathetic: joe klein or time magazine?

useless and useless.

joke line on larry o'donnell's show

that's a scary clueless asshole twosome right there.  i don't think any two people on earth could have their heads any farther up the ass of the establishment than these two fuckheads.

hermentum is getting kicked all over now

9-9-9 or 666--the number of the beast!!--ain't gonna help hermentum.  he's getting kicked all around and i'm afraid that he'll get so beat upon that he will lose his ability to provide batshit loony entertainment.

the turner baseball broadcast team is awful

just awful.  not mccarver bad, but still.  where's tony kubek when you need him?

occupy wall street earns a frontal attack

the nervous masters of wall street have decided it is time to squash the uprising.  now this is an obvious frontal attack and may give the police an excuse to arrest huge numbers of people.  isn't it great that zuccotti park is private property where the rules can be changed at any time with the nypd to enforce the edicts of a private corporation.  it would be great if this energizes even more protest instead of effectively ending the new york occupation.  bloomberg is a douchenozzle, btw.

mekons ancient & modern

the mekons latest disc, ancient & modern, has apparently been done for quite a while.  the banter in 2009 at the mercury lounge show--the first time i heard 'space in your face'--seemed to imply the album was done or almost done and would be out relatively soon.  25 months later, it's out, and it's a doozy.  the overarching concept of parallels between the edwardian era and this modern time gives the band an opportunity and excuse to stretch beyond the conventional rock/country/folk style(s) and to hit some historical themes of war and upheaval as well.  it's an interesting and engaging work.  while it's not the return to rock 'n roll or anything, it grows more entrancing with each listen and the arc of songs do indeed work well as a complete work even if there's no clumsy concept-album narrative.  having seen both of the recent nyc shows, i can also say that the songs on the album fit extremely well into the mekons live show set.  i first heard 'space' in 2009, and the 2011 version rocked even harder.  'arthur's angel', 'i fall asleep', 'geeshie' and 'honey bear' were also highlights of the recent shows, giving even more depth to new album.  i like it.  so will you.  if the middle period mekons, from fear and whiskey to retreat from memphis--i know, but i fucking love that album even if langford dissed it and none of the songs are concert stalwarts; it's a strong, lean, rocking album when the band was a core foursome--was an astounding run of perhaps the greatest rock 'n whatever music ever, then ancient & modern is a fabulous addition to the later period, starting with journey to the end of the night, or perhaps me if you like that self-consciously odd and profane along with renaissance-maniac lu edmonds helming the pro tools, that features such interesting, dark and complex music.

olbermann on francona

last night, olbermann was pretty funny getting on the jerkoffs who own the redsox attacking francona in the globe.  now that he's gone, they wanna piss all over him.  whoever takes the job should figure on getting the fuck outa dodge after 3 or 4 seasons.  hopefully you win the series in that time, but either way you gotta go.

patrick cockburn knows better than josh marshall

it's very sad to see how gullible and scumsucking some supposedly 'left' commentators are like tpm's jefe josh marshall when it comes to the obama administration and the 'war' on 'terror'.  marshall was an immediate enabler of obama's murderous drone attack on anwar al-awlaki.  fortunately, patrick cockburn is quite a bit more intelligent, informed and sceptical, so he didn't fall the latest bullshit, the 'iranian' 'plot'.

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

big ed shultz pops off tonight

ed was very cranky in front of grayson's appearance on his show tonight.  and then he has dean baker on!  more dean baker on msnbc, please.  shit.

mittmentum!

what's gonna happen now that mittens has mittmentum?  there's gonna be some teabagger heads exploding, but will the rock-ribbed asshole establishment just go with mittmentum?  probably.

josh beckett: loser

pretty funny to hear that beckett was a douchebag in the clubhouse, and not exactly a team player.  shocked, i say.  shocked.  makes that sack sabathia look better, at least.

elizabeth warren!

this is my favorite youtube clip in a long while, probably since that onion classic piss-take on glenn beck.  elizabeth warren will clean this shit up herself if she has to.


michael o'hanlon and kenneth pollack: fetid human filth

as seen recently--again--in the iran terror bullshit story that the obama administration puked up for the myriad idiots out there are two of the most vile pieces of shit currently soiling this planet: michael o'hanlon and kenneth pollack.  i really kind of wish there really was a hell, cause it would be kinda' fun to watch them suffer at least a little bit.  o'hanlon is the biggest embarrassment for princeton since meg whitman's idiot son.  pollack is just a cocksucker.  both are supposedly well-educated and credentialed mouthpieces for the american imperial war machine at the horrible brookings institution.  both of course are utter fucking morons and almost always wrong on every conceivable subject.  if one of those two dickwads says something, well you can be sure it's fucking horseshit.  they fill their roles, though; the empire needs these small-minded and empty-heady 'experts' to enthusiastically lick its boots and lovingly tongue its ass.

if you believe the latest iran plot, you are an idiot

utter nonsense.  it is much more about the fbi playing dressup and eric holder getting pissed on by darrel issa than it is about terrorism or any potential crimes.  note how it's a boehner-inducing fever dream for all the paranoid racist teabaggers and neocons out there.  iranians!  mexicans!  drugs!  bombs!  israel.  utter bullshit and if you believe a word of it, you're a fucking retard.

tito got divorced from the sox this year, too

boston sports culture at its finest.  now that tito is gone and the sox blew dog big time in september, the assholes in boston are trashing francona, calling him a drug addict and saying he couldn't control his team because of his divorce.  stay classy, sports fans.

the cubs will be sorry

all the shit coming out about the bosox is not gonna help the theo launch in chi-town.

steve jobs has been dead a little while

why doesn't my iphone play flash yet?

real unemployment is 1 out of every 5 amercans and no one cares

nobody in government is gonna do shit about it.  the nation is corroding one life at a time.  this bullshit is yet another inanity killing all of us slowly.

mittens gets kicked

the one thing you can say about the horrible fucking teabagger bigot assholes: they're simple in every possible sense.

stupid sparkles in texas

if you are feeling a flat and lifeless and some vibrant idiocy will perk you up like an overdose of cialis, well, jeebus has answered your prayers.  nothing says dumb like texas dumb.  everything is bigger in texas, especially the stupid.  don't fuck with texas.  duh.

will the colts even win a game this season?

how'd you like to be a new season ticket holder to that train wreck?

mekons!!!

2 days, 2 mekons shows in new york city.  it was hot as fuck at the bell house and packed with a crowd that mostly appeared to be hipster douchebag assholes and their parents in about equal numbers.  unfortunately, i was stone cold sober as i had to walk back to park slope where my car was parked and drive back home afterwards, so unlike the mercury lounge show in 09, i was not completely shouty-sweaty drunk.

they played many of the songs off the new album, and they fit in well with the 35 years of mekons material.  the album itself is also very enjoyable and works nicely as a concept album.  the rockinest song on the album, 'space in your face' was played in 2009 at the show i saw and probably rocked a tiny bit harder this year.

one thing that really stands out is how tight and good they are now.  all eight of the mekons were there, so with 6 singers, a crazy-looking lu edmonds playing his electric saz the whole show, suzy on violin and tom in attendance, it was a amazing performance.  steve and sarah are now an unflappable and powerful rhythm section, and even though you could hardly see her behind jon and sally, her bass was pulsing and dominant in old-timey rock 'n roll tradition.  it was great to have tom with 'em; a little less lead singing for rico, and none for lu this time, but the vocals were awesome all around.  at times tom looked a little lost, but the mekons really are better with him even if he's a boring old family man and working guy now.

sharpton hit voter suppression hard on his show today

he was rightly outraged, and had one of the victims on, all 96 years of her.  too bad she can't vote, but fuck her, cuz she's probably not a reliable republican vote anyway.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

herman cain: world nut daily

or at least world nut weekly in the case of hermentum.  is he really the candidate of the world nut daily crowd?  that would be pretty scary, because i can't help but think he's got a disability in the eyes of those kooks when it comes time to actually vote.

come and have a go if you think you're hard enough

ed shultz hits his stride on wall street

it looks like big ed finally synched up with the wall street protests, which is not a bad thing.  it's possible he'll get some learnin' while he's there by osmosis.

creepy steve jobs hagiography on msnbc tonight

kudos to olbermann for mentioning jobs's death but sticking to real news.  msnbc spent 90 minutes on a 90-second story.  very creepy and very weird given all the stuff going on in the world these days.

fools on parade: serotta forum

occupy wall street has caused some confusion amongst our dimmer two-wheeled internets friends, the serotta forum.  there was a decent amount of support for the protests, but as usual the most strident responses came from the happy fascist jerkoffs who make up a large part of the serotta customer base.  this asshole often pukes up the standard koch-sucker talking points because he is apparently in the financial advising business so he happily sucks the toes of the elite to make money.  there's some great teabagger propaganda from this dipshit.  see, the teabaggers weren't a bunch of astro-turfed ignorant racist assholes.  no, they were good people, 'employed' people at 'denny's' who might 'coach soccer'.  what a fucking dickhead.  i'm not sure what's worse, that he really believes that shit or that he happily spews it on command in order to bolster the argument of the 1% and their lickspittles.  of course, this scumbag has to chime in, because even though he inherited some money from his father and doesn't really work, he understands almost nothing about the world around him and spends his time cut and pasting heritage foundation and heartland institute and cato institute talking points while pretending that those things are not utter fabrications or bullshit in other words.  he's a vile human being with some ugly beliefs.  the worst of the worst.  just for fun, some sorry bastard makes sure he gets in the same stupid zombie lie about nuclear power because, well, why not?  finally, some supposedly hard-working all-american douchenozzle who is dismissive of the protests because the protesters are 'obstructing commerce' and 'don't work' chimes in to add insult to ignorance.

this thread is really a sad example of just how ill-informed and ugly a large portion of the people in america are.  these fools don't understand that they are both part of the problem as well as victims of the system.  the fact that they can't see the truth of the economic and social reality around them is both sickening and sad.  their facile ignorance and lies are both hateful and disgusting.  this is what we are all fighting.  unfortunately, some of the 99% are also vile toady class traitors.

shame on richard dawkins for going on o'reilly

smart guy, but not smart enough to stay away from an irredeemable fuckhead like o'reilly.  it must suck to have a book to sell, but come on, fox news?  o'reilly for christ's sake?  jesus.

will steve jobs come back as a cyborg?

or is he out there in the icloud somewhere?  hopefully this was what he was doin' with his money...

jonathan capehart, village idiot, rants on ratigan's show

dim-bulb washington post village idiot jonathan capehart gave a sad little rant at the end of asshat dylan ratigan's show today where he contended that the teabaggers started as a grass-roots group of americans who were sick of not having a voice in america anymore, just like the occupy wall street folks.  anyone out there, even at the washington post, who really believes that the teabaggers are anything but the ass-end of the ignorant republican base astro-turfed into a circus side-show should be taken away in a butterfly net and left in a nice rubber room where they can paint the walls with their own shit.

aj burnett: ace

he can't lose, tonight, again.

so much for the rays

but the rangers are just vile.  too bad we couldn't have had a rays/brewers series and watch a bunch of the fox people fling themselves out their windows.

random teabagger scab stupid on the interwebs

i know!  but anyway, i was sifting through the world's worst-informed bicycle forum, when something about this post got my teabagger gaydar buzzing, so i followed a linky and lo and behold, the poster of that stupid post about phones is a fucking scab air traffic controller!  holy shit.  you know that an air traffic controller who supported reagan has to be about the dumbest motherfucker on the planet.  mr. piece-of-shit conservative is happy to live off the government payroll, but he's some sort of rugged individualist, too or some stupid shit.  that's just disgusting.  these people are all over, spewing their utter bullshit conservatism with utterly no self-awareness or understanding.  the funniest, most pathetic part was where the dimwitted author praised george w. bush's 'protection' of the 'constitution'.  this asshat is another pathetic example of what's wrong with america.  really, this idiot is a smiling class traitor, happy to be a boot licking lackey of the elite power structure in this country.

seriously, these ball/strike calls suck tonight

turner had better turn off that strike zone graphic before the home plate ump gets lynched like clarence thomas at the judiciary committee.

if nancy grace thinks you're guilty, well...

you are probably some sort of fucking saint.  nancy 'nips' grace is a walking talking disaster.

breaking: rick perry is a racist moron

seriously shocking.  he always seemed so reasonable and sane!

awful strike calling in detroit so far

but jeter had better come up with something productive.  i mean, burnett can't carry the whole team!  ok, nice job.  holy shit, posada is slow.  martin was indeed safe, so that was right at least.

hank williams junior better watch out

he better be on the lookout for predator drones!  obama's gonna get 'im.

al sharpton on tee vee

he does put an entertaining show on, that's for sure.  more life to sharpton's show than most of the crap on msnbc.

michelle rhee: the sarah palin of education

that's awesome.  michelle rhee is another of that cohort of contemptible grifters fucking up america, and this awesome website, rheefirst, does a great job of collecting lots of the evidence against her.  she's a horrible, union-busting liar and criminal; anyone who trusts her is either evil or stupid.

dylan ratigan fluffs deepak chopra

another shameful episode in the career of dylan ratigan; giving a forum to a despicable charlatan like deepak chopra is disgusting display of bad judgement.  ratigan often displays a severe lack of character in the vile crew he promotes on his show.  chopra is beyond contempt.  shame on ratigan.

mittens!

chris christie fluffs mittens with his latest refusal to enter the race for the republican nomination.  certainly romney has failed to light up the enthusiasm of the republican primary voters (teabaggers) and the big money donors (assholes), but in a field of midgets, mittens the kitten looks like the only bet.  is he hoping that the he can just ignore the mormon problem with those bigot motherfuckers (teabaggers)?

hermentum!

hermentum is running rampant.  too bad the racist assholes like limbaugh are gonna rub his nose in his blackness and turn the teabagger bigots against him once and for all.  now the big question: what's romney gonna do about the mormon question?

things are better now we have the bomb

stay in the united states now ms. knox

but watch the hell out for predator drones, cause you never know what you've done wrong.

stiglitz and madrick on wall street

nice bit on olbermann tonight about stiglitz and madrick doing a little teach-in at occupy wall street.  good stuff.

sabathia is off the hook

who knew.

foxy knoxy gets the hell outa dodge

amanda knox is gonna make it home, i guess.  what a fucked up situation.  it made the italian court system look like a cartoon parody of justice.  at least they didn't have the death penalty and kill her before she could be cleared.

are you ready for some soccer?

poor hank williams junior really is an asshat.

breaking: what is going on with hypocrite bill o'reilly's divorce

i expected to see more about this on the factor by now, because o'reilly loves an icky sex scandal.

so much for perry/cain

hermentum doesn't ever want to be president.  perry was his best shot at the vp slot.  the teabagger racist assholes are not gonna like cain bringing up the niggerhead part of perry's family property.  so, i guess hermentum has thrown itself under the teabagger express.  i'm not sure romney/cain would be much fun.

tpm josh marshall is an idiot

this is what's wrong with the daycare class of village idiot wannabees.  marshall is part of the 'professional' 'left' in this country, influential for apparently no reason given his dimwitted analytical abilities on display in this piece.  in the piece, marshall agrees that there's a bunch of stuff he doesn't know and will never know about the al-awlaki incident, but he is still willing to argue it's a perfectly acceptable thing for a united states president to murder or assassinate anyone who may or may not be doing something dangerous or may or may not be actively working against the interests of the united states.  since it's totally okay that we will never know, the president can do whatever he wants whenever he wants according to marshall.  this is not a liberal position in any way.  marshall is eagerly awaiting fame and fortune as a fluffer of the establishment in washington, and i am sure he will gladly take his place at the trough of bullshit as soon as he gets the approving pat on the head from the current village idiots.  he is never to be trusted on anything of import.  once again he's shown that he's nothing but a careerist dipshit.

marshall also proudly whipped out his idiocy with regards to the future of nuclear power in light of the fukushima incident in japan.  marshall is not a critical thinker, or really, a thinker at all.  he has proven that he is more than happy to regurgitate conventional wisdom and washington establishment bullshit in order to ingratiate himself with the power structure and line his own pockets now and in the future.  talking points memo is one of the largest, most influential 'liberal' democratic news and opinion mills on the internets.  understanding the truth about marshall shows it should not be trusted at all.  ever.

amanda knox is a slut, so she deserves it

deserves what, i'm not exactly sure, but italian justice is a cute concept, though in real-life it looks pretty ugly.  it would be nice if your justice system was so great that we could piss all over the silly provincials in italy, but we have little ground to stand on in that regard.  still, if they let her go, i hope they give her a lifetime supply of pizzas to make up for the gross miscarriage of justice.  the case is a fucking mess, and all they've proved is that slut-shaming is perfectly acceptable in italy.

the world's worst author? rodney c. johnson?

could it be?  could this sorry bastard be the world's worst author?  i think so.  first of all, the name: rod(ney) cock johnson.  that's just a horrible joke.  then look at the bibliography and notice that it's not just embarrassing 6th-grade level fantasy books but also 'erotic' 'spanking' stories as well.  how fucking creepy is that?  i'm sure his erotica could act as a foolproof birth control for tens of millions.  plus he's a dimwit conservative admirer of sarah palin.  there's no mistaking this guy for a genius award winner, that's for sure, but is he a worse writer than michael savage?  as awful a 'novelist' as glenn beck?  as ridiculously inane as bill o'reilly?  as irredeemably terrible in every way as ayn rand?  i'd like to think so, but i don't have the time to actually read that garbage.

breaking: clarence thomas is a scumbag

more on thomas, this time as koch-sucker from pam martens on counterpunch.  our supreme court is perhaps the most dysfunctional branch of government now, and that's saying something.  the 2000 election killed our supreme court; alito, roberts, scalia and thomas are certainly four of the worst and least intelligent men of power america has been home to in our history.

run christie run

well, walk.  no, not that either.  but, something.  watching that thin-skinned pissy bully attempt to run for president would be such a glorious joy.  when he starts screaming at romney on live tee vee and romney just laughs at him, well that's that.

when dick cheny says you are right, you are dead wrong

former vice president dick has his first boehner in a long while over the murder anwar al-awlaki, and now he wants his fee-fees helped by an apology from the obama people.  if obama's gonna apologize, it should be to all decent people, not that miserable rotten fucker dick cheney.

let's play the clarence thomas game

now that there's a call for an investigation into clarence thomas's scummy personal and professional ethics, we can ask a simple question: what would the teabagger-types have done if the scummy justice in question was an activist liberal instead of activist movement conservative?  constant 24/7 bullshit on fox new for one.
