Only the leftists die young
I always love to hear liberals bemoan how racist the rest of the country is, but not them of course. They would embrace Obama, but those racist rednecks on the right would want to kill him.
Gift of the Magi
They were newlyweds, and poor in all but love. For the first year, that was enough.
For the second, a tightness came to her face, and he looked a bit less elegant, with his thrice turned cuffs. He looked a bit pathetic, going from one place of business to another looking for work after he lost his job at the bank.
She smiled less and they stopped talking of having children, having them soon, anyway. He made due with patched shoes and shiny, threadbare suits. She mended her dresses and tried to be patient with staying home every night of the week and week-ends too, when they used to dance four nights of the week and dine out three before they were married.
All that remained of his former affluency was his heavy gold watch, the pride of his family for generations. Even in his impoverished state, he was always reassured when he pulled it out, hefted it in his hand, the ever true timekeeper. Somehow, it made him feel a little better.
The young pine tree stood holding his branches out as if in supplication. Indeed, he was soundlessly praying, if a tree can be said to do so, to whatever gods or druids or faeries to which a pine tree would pray. He was praying the harvesters would reach his rank and row today, tomorrow at the latest.
For it is the week before Christmas, and unless he is taken quickly, he will be too late for this season. Perhaps he might have too propitious a Spring and Summer, with much sun and rain and life-giving humus. Then he might grow too large to be considered quite suitable for a Christmas tree. His pith sank at the thought, and he pushed it away and continued his matins to the pine tree Jesus, or Buddha, or Allah- to whatever the wood-folk present their heart-wood’s desire.
As we’ve noted before, why anyone puts any stock in anything this stupid motherfucker kos says is beyond us. He got in on the bottom floor of the internet flood of intense far left discontent, gave them a place to vent, shrewdly took on all the co-bloggers he could so as to maximize effect, and is crowned as a genius and a true pundit on what is going on in politics today and the inside scoop due to his contacts with important insiders.
You know, it won’t resonate with the hard right McCain haters who sniff Romney’s crotch to get the scent of a “true conservative” but to me one of the wonderful things about racist, sexist, intolerant, repressive Mormon asshole Mitt Romney’s rejection, despite his huge financial advantages is that such a bald-faced hypocrite and opportunist could get such play in the right blogs. It totally opened my eyes and kind of stripped me away from the “tribe mentality” that pretty much sums up most of the rightblog/leftblog herd behavior on the net.
I either left a comment or sent a trackback to Bizzyblog re: the previous post Why Almost Every Rightblog is Missing the Point on Why Hugh Hewitt is Full of Shit on Romney, so the bizzyman took issue and deleted that, and sent me a nice little note to explain why he did:
UPDATE: In 2012, when Romney is the frontrunner and potential nominee, remember this::::::
The Captain over at Capt’s Quarters is basically fair minded, he does a nice job knocking down some really disgusting smears of McCain.
However, in arguing against Ron Paul as a VP candidate (like that would ever happen in this universe) he is still on about Ron Paul’s newletters and the John Birch type racist and Jew-bashing diatribes that were released under his name:
Tired of hearing about Obama every time you turn on the TeeVee? Tired of seeing his smirking face on every magazine and newspaper front page? Tired of all the asinine, smug supporters acting even more like the assholes they are since the election? Do you want to register your disgust and express your disdain for the Messiah-elect?
Turns out Calvin Coolidge’s enemies dug up photos of Silent Cal donning an full ceremonial headdress in 19something, proving his intent to return large sections of the U.S. back to the Indians.
Coolidge’s empty promises, much like Bill Clinton’s to gays in the military, were easily discarded once he was safely elected. The Indians finally got their revenge by investing in casinos and it was blackjack scalping the paleface instead of the Blackfoot.
Barack Hussein Obama is not the first U.S. candidate caught kissing up to minority blocs by wearing their ethnic costumes, and political sleaze slingers have been spreading photos of candidates for many years.
Along with Ann Coulter, the most toxic, destructive and race-baiting demagogue who claims to be “conservative”, and gives un-ending material to the leftwingnuts who wish to paint the right as racist, white supremecist thugs, Michele Malkin stands as the epitome of what I detest about the far right. Malkin and her ilk have made everyone here at docweaselblog question our further commitment to the Republican Party.
Patterico makes the case for Obama’s decency. Why a right-blog has any business doing that, I have no idea. Let the lying lefties make that case, if Patterico’s thesis is correct, their abuse of the truth these 8 years will cause them to be disbelieved, even when telling the truth. But it won’t, because there is no downside to demonizing your opponents, we have found. If this election has taught us anything, it’s that decency goes unrewarded and the smearing of decent people works.
Rightblogs who never gave McCain wholehearted support now bitch about his loss
Fuck you Michelle Malkin, you fucking race-baiting, one-issue, immigrant bashing bitch. A good deal of the blame for McCain’s loss lies at your door. Having worked her ass off to sabotage McCain, Malkin could at least STFU for a day. If the conservatives had backed McCain whole-heartedly, there’s no reason he shouldn’t have won all the states Bush won, at least.
The Skinny: Young Leader Spent Late ’60s Seeking Converts In France
CBS News NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2007
While his peers back in the States were tuning in and dropping out, a young Mitt Romney was tuning out (newspapers and television) and dropping in (on unsuspecting French people) in his role as a Mormon missionary.
I don’t know. Maybe it’s a “freedom ain’t nothing but nothing left to lose”. I just detect an unnatural and irrational exuberance among the “true” right-blogs. Something is going on here, and I feel good about this election.
Bob Dole, that most hated of Republicans by Republicans because he lost to the hated Clinton, came out today with the reasonable fact that McCain’s voting record is actually VERY conservative.
He showed, for example, that McCain’s voting record is a near mirror image of ex-Senator Jesse Helms. Of course, neither Limbaugh nor ABM Syndrome sufferers will address any of this.
Well I saw him in the city and on the mountains of the moon
His cross was rather bloody
He could hardly roll His stone
Oh Jesus save me! – Hymn 43 Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull
Remember 100 years ago when all the pundits were saying Obama had nothing but good choices for VP and McCain had only bad and worse. What a difference a couple weeks make.
I don’t buy the new CW that Hillary’s new bete noire is Palin, and it’s in her interest to destroy Palin as her main rival as top dog woman politician. For on thing, they have vastly different constituencies. Sure, some Hillaryites might vote for McCain/Palin since Hillary isn’t on the ticket, but no Democrat pro-lifer is going to vote for Palin over Hillary.
Jesus, some people don’t venture out in the internets very far past Ellen DeGeneres Fan Site or Care Bears Appreciation Forum or wherever else this guy frequents that he thinks this is a “bitter and angry” post.
He should take a cue from Mister Snitch, who knows the value of a good, robust post when he reads one.
Some movies include stupid characters. The Bank Job includes a universe where everyone is stupid, and their stupidity is calculated and necessary to keep the plot going.
If any one group involved: the robbers, the criminals who are after them, the British Secret Service, the cops, the by-standers, everyone. weren’t so stupid the caper and the movie would be finished. Its lazy writing and very annoying. You can suspend disbelief, you don’t have to suffer lame ass scripting though.
Californians always think the rest of the country considers them the coolest, hippest, trendiest fucks on the planet, and that we all wish we lived there too and had such super cool lives and mingle with the celebutards and the Z-listers and skanks and druggies and no talent hacks and showbiz phonies and hangers on and gofers and Raiders fans and stalkers and maniacs and addicts and critics and other assorted assholes.
It’s with this spirit that the first lady of California backs Obama, in a show of non-solidarity with her husband, basically calling him out as a fucking dickwad idiot jerk-faced prick with ears for backing McCain, the sensible candidate.
The Hollywood establishment to which she belongs is creaming their collective panties in jungle fever for the minority candidate they can all support to assuage their liberal guilt and swim in the glory of how tolerant and past racism they all are – unless it’s a black Republican like Clarence “Uncle Tom” Thomas, or Condi “Aunt Jemima” Rice or Colin “House N1gger” Powell or Michael “Simple Sambo” Steele. In that case it’s ok to be a hateful racist motherfucker because race traitors to the Democrat party masters cannot be tolerated.
This isn’t an attempt to paint docweaselblog as possessing any moral superiority over those with which we disagree. It is, however becoming more and more apparent that some very loud and influential rightwing voices are venal, dishonest and disgusting in their stands on some of the issues in which the country is embroiled.
This morning, checking the ol’ stats meter, we were astonished to see over 10k hits from rense.com. Checking out the site, it’s the homepage of radio personality Jeff Rense. Who the hell is Rense, anyway?
Jeff Rense is an American conspiracy theorist and radio talk-show host of the Jeff Rense Program, broadcast on US satellite radio via Genesis Communications Network (GCN) and Internet radio.
One of my heroes and role-models died this week. Pamela Bone, multi-culturalist and feminist who, in the last years of her life, began to question whether multi-culturalism was excusing violence and repression against women.
Which, I can only pray, one day to be a fraction as affecting and effective as I believe she was, and still is, because she lives on, in print.
She died with the same grace, courage and strength with which she lived. Happily, she died with those she loved around her. She was a fighter, as I aspire to be, for women, and for women’s rights, and she was a writer, as I also aspire to be, and her focus was on women, and injustice and the pursuit of justice and peace.

I just read this wonderful satire by giant douche Froma Harrop.
What a delightfully silly and stupid name for what is obviously a humorous concoction by some right-wing wag: and it’s just a classic! You’d think it was serious, but no one could be that much of a dull witted, cretinous wanker, of course not.
Poofe was the architect of the insurgent campaign of Congressperson Orank Bojamba, the young, brash, photogenic, telegenic, hygenic outsider whom no one thought had a chance, a political Cinderella story, the community organizer who had made good. Poofe had done what everyone thought impossible.
He had brought a brilliant, courageous and scrupulously decent and honest, fun-loving, well-groomed, bi-partisan, post-racial, bi-pedal, ambidextrous (yet humble to a fault) political phenom to the brink of the presidency for the salvation of the huperson race.
In solidarity with other blogs and newspapers in support of free speech, we present this political cartoon which makes a trenchant comment on the tragic legacy of violence Muhammed, the prophet of the “Religion of Peace” spawned with his exhortations of the faithful to support world-wide jihad.
get your schwerve on.
Palin and her impressive family. Check out how her husband is eying the crowd.
After an initial bad feeling about Palin, we’ve been actually reading and watching video interviews with and about her, and what we here at docweaselblog are reading is heartening.
Not all conservative Republicans are enthused. We think they’re wrong, dead wrong.
When this campaign cycle began, I supported Guiliani. I knew nothing about Huckabee, since then I’ve heard him say a lot of idiot god-stuff, he’s apparently playing the card that “the Republican establishment hates Evangelicals, its time we got in their face and nominated one, who happens to be me“, which is a pretty weak argument.
McCain I didn’t like because he made his bones being a “maverick”, which means bashing Republicans and President Bush, which of course the MSM loves to report, and McCain loves press more than the Dallas Cowgirls love to get an ass-whuppin’ on national TeeVee. I also didn’t care for his “campaign finance reform”, but let’s face it, all that crap is esoterica and there are a million ways around it, and it sure didn’t stop the Swiftboaters. Its meaningless in the long run- the money will get out there, they can try to direct the flow but it will get out there anyway. Its a non-issue to me.
You know, I like Cusack’s movies. I also like the way my mechanic fixes my car and the way my plumber fixes my sink.
But I pay them for that, not to their lame-brained theories on politics. Cusack has a platform because he’s a movie star, and he mistakes that platform and the interest people have for him as an actor for interest in anything he has to say about politics.
He also mistakes the attention given a celebrity with people giving a shit about his opinion. Why actors believe they are uniquely qualified, out of all the professions, to give us the benefit of their wisdom, is probably due to the fact that people are kissing their ass from the time they get up ’til the time they are going to bed, and they start believing their own press releases.
Some of John’s “brilliance”:
Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness– and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they’re selling– their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
How about the corporations who make movies, huh John? The ones who have enriched you? How about if we refuse to buy what they are selling, “their ideas, their version of history” especially? How’s about them apples John? Being John Malkovich was still a great movie though.
I can’t imagine any group less qualified and intelligent about political matters, and with less credibility with which to lecture the rest of us poor dumb bastards, unless its rock musicians.
There are a number of bloggers here on docweaselblog and we come from disparate backgrounds and have differing opinions. The guys kind of run the blog most of the time, but the girls have a very strong opinion too and I’m breaking out tonight.
“Snobama” via Michelle Malkin
The kernel of the nut of this post is a bit muzzy. I spent considerable time on the photoshops and the post ended up rambling between several subjects. It began with a reverie, wondering if the disparate forces of the leftosphere and the leftist press were irrevocably estranged, or would they kiss deeply, with tongues, look into each other’s metrosexual eyes, cop a feel, get their noodle wet and make up in time to go back to their normal synchronized Republican bashing.
But the subject of the day is Obama’s pridefulness and hatred for the common man. which leftists are now framing as racist righties calling Obama “uppity”. But since he’s half-white, it could just be his hateful, bigoted white blood, crazed with entitlement and the cudgel of patriarchal repression, smashing down on the poor white trash of Appalachia.
Lace up your cleats and join our namesakes and friends, docweaselband Saturday, August 23rd at Tampa Stadium Gate C. Say “Hi” to the guys and mention our blog and they will give you… something.
Just for the record, none of the members of dwb have anything to do with the blog and in no way condone or approve of our disgusting and depraved decadence.
Every Tampa Bay Bucs’ home game Official Gameday band docweaselband our friends and namesake of the blog, will be playing at Gate C, Raymond James Stadium – or just Tampa Stadium, as most locals call it.
The local sport-radio morons on the Bucs’ payroll try to push “the RayJay”, but I’ve never heard a single person call the stadium “the RayJay” and I’d probably cockpunch anyone who did.

The Hotline today is a treasure trove of comedy gold regarding the nutroots frothing at the mouth and pissing pants rage.
At what you ask?
At ABC’s perfidy in actually asking hard questions of Democrats and pointing up the fact they have no good answers for why they are lying, pandering pantloads. Instead of blaming the press, how about demanding the Democrats don’t elect pieces of shit like Clinton and Obama as candidates in the first place? Come on, assign blame where its due!
