Love it!

This is how we win.

John McCain, in faded black and white, like a Humphrey Bogart movie, and the word "OLD" prominent on the screen.

De l'audace, encore de l'audace, et toujours de l'audace!

Are Conservatives Terrorists?

Normally, I wouldn't think so. But, after reading this story, I think they are.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - An out-of-work truck driver accused of opening fire at a Unitarian church, killing two people, left behind a note suggesting that he targeted the congregation out of hatred for its liberal policies, including its acceptance of gays, authorities said Monday.

It's pretty clear where this person got his ideas and inspiration:
"Adkisson targeted the church, Still wrote in the document obtained by WBIR-TV, Channel 10, 'because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country's hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of media outlets.'

"Adkisson told Still that 'he could not get to the leaders of the liberal movement that he would then target those that had voted them in to office.'

"Adkisson told officers he left the house unlocked for them because 'he expected to be killed during the assault.'

"Inside the house, officers found 'Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder' by radio talk show host Michael Savage, 'Let Freedom Ring' by talk show host Sean Hannity, and 'The O'Reilly Factor,' by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly."

Why do conservatives hate our freedoms? Their twisted minds inspire others to open fire on people who are simply trying to worship as they choose. I hate to be blunt here, but we must take steps to make sure this sort of tragedy never happens again.

Therefore, regrettably, it has come to this.
1. Tap the phones of conservatives, and monitor their emails.
2. Deny conservatives the right to due process.
3. Hold conservatives indefinitely and use aggressive interrogation techniques to extract from them information about other conservative plots. (Note: I got this idea from "24".)
4. Round conservatives up and send them to Gitmo. They're terrorists. They have no rights.

Some of you may carp about this violating the Constitution. Need I remind you that the Constitution is not a suicide pact?

Thanks to the last eight years, we can now do all of this. Welcome to hell, conservatives.

Plagiarism for a Sunday

From one of my long-time favorite blogs, Eschaton:
Once upon a time, Fred Thompson was going to be the savior of the Republican party, and now he isn't even being considered for Vice President.

I guess the Republicans fell back on grade school logic of whoever is older in a fight will win. Which makes sense when one of the combatants is 14 and the other is 12. But, at some point, that logic leads to the Republicans making a choice between
this guy

and this guy.

PLEASE, Republicans, reconsider. Fred Thompson would make a great vice presidential candidate. It would give me reason to continue this blog. I go back to class in September, and a McCain-Thompson ticket would provide me so much motivation to keep blogging.
Until November, at least. When both would get sent back to the home.

I almost forgot!

Comic Con is going on San Diego!
I was wondering why there were so few poindexters around this afternoon. They're all in their mating ground, Comic Con!
To spare you, my readers, the pain, I went online and got some pictures of the atrocities:

The one on the right is giving you the finger. Ever so slyly. The middle one is just offensive in his own right.

Proof that our educational system has failed our nation. This is what it turns out.

Robert Mapplethorpe could not have thought up something this bad.

No matter what you thought of those,
there is no excuse or explanation for this:

Between young people acting like this, and old people thinking the road to the White House goes through a fudge shop, we are doomed.

Take. His. License.

Robert Novak is another member of The Elderly Menace. Some might say he is a founding member, as his first columns were screeds against abolitionists. Look at him!

And now, just today...
He tried to kill somebody, then fled the scene!
Bono said that the pedestrian, who was crossing the street on a "Walk" signal and was in the crosswalk, rolled off the windshield and that Novak then made a right into the service lane of K Street. “This car is speeding away. What’s going through my mind is, you just can’t hit a pedestrian and drive away,” Bono said.

He said he chased Novak half a block down K Street, finally caught up with him and then put his bike in front of the car to block it and called 911. Traffic immediately backed up, horns blaring, until commuters behind Novak backed up so he could pull over.

The guy discloses the name of covert operatives. He tries to kill pedestrians. What does it take to throw this guy in jail?

I'm voting Republican!

McCain=Mean Old Man

Old Man Huggies can't be trusted with security.

Very characteristic of The Elderly Menace, disclosing stuff he shouldn't just to get attention.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain said on Friday that his Democratic opponent, Barack Obama, is likely to be in Iraq over the weekend.
The Obama campaign has tried to cloak the Illinois senator's trip in some measure of secrecy for security reasons. The White House, State Department and Pentagon do not announce senior officials' visits to Iraq in advance.

If God hates this country, and I think it's pretty clear she does, then what else can we expect when John McCain seizes power?

This episode is yet another illustration of how the older generation will simply NOT GET OUT OF THE WAY and let younger people run things for once. To the point of trying to bring physical harm upon a younger person.

Part of it is definitely the military mindset that McCain was immersed in from birth. He thinks of the presidency as a promotion in rank from Senator, one he has earned simply by being around long enough. And if someone gets in the way of that promotion, well, there's a war on, you know, and accidents happen, don't they?

John McCain is a dangerous unhinged individual.

He's got my vote.

Well, duh. But here's another reason:

Later at a Lincoln Park nightclub, Obama spoke to a raucous crowd of music fans, who paid up to $500 per person to see a performance by Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy, and two other band members.

"Before these guys go, I want them to know that I had heard a rumor that they had suggested that I had nothing by them on my iPod," Obama said. "That is not true. I love Wilco."

Anybody who can get Bernie Mac and Jeff Tweedy in the same place is a true uniter, not a divider. If anybody from the Obama campaign is reading this, I would like to reserve two tickets to the inaugural ball where Wilco will play. January 20, 2009. I am free. Hook me up. I will even wear a tuxedo.

Old Man Huggies, on the other hand, prefers this kind of music:

Oh, that Borat.

This is an awesome story.

Little Rock, Arkansas — Crowds in Arkansas came for the lure of cage fighting and $1 beer, but police say what they got instead was men ripping each others' clothes off and kissing — a stunt suspected of being orchestrated by Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat fame.

“We had a contract for cage fighting. We were deceived,” said Dwight Duncan, president and CEO of Four States Fair Grounds in Texarkana, where the first of two Arkansas fights raised suspicions last month.

I'm not a huge fan of Borat, but I have to respect any comic willing to revive The Royal Nonesuch.

A rare serious moment.

This is tragic.

My heart goes out to Alice Swanson's family and friends.

It's a shame that, in internet space, she will be linked to that article. So, here are links to the organizations and causes she worked for. It's the least a blogger can do.

Middle East Institute
International Research and Exchanges Board

They are organizations that are fighting against the ignorance and intolerance that have torn our world apart. Someone has to, and we are poorer for their loss.

America! F*** Yeah!

As I've noted before in this space, on this great holiday, remember the spirit of 1776. Which consisted of:
1. Disdain for authority
2. Appreciation for craft brews
3. Freemasonry.

Alright, alright. That last one is kind of paranoid.

Have a great weekend! And keep up the rebellion against King George!
