Oppose a Loser, Lose Yourself

Remember John Kerry's "Band of Brothers"? They were the handful of sailors who served with Kerry during his four grueling months of self-inflicted wounds - before he could abandon them and flee home to call them war criminals - and accepted four-star travel and lodging in exchange for allowing themselves to be lugged around as human props for Kerry's phony war heroics myth-making.

Well, notwithstanding the hundreds of Swift Vets who spoke out against Kerry and were smeared by the MSM in concert with Team Kerry and disregarded, there was Stever Gardner, who served as gunner on the boat and refused to tow the line for Kerry and as detailed in "How Kerry whistleblower suffered for truth", is now unemployed and the victim of the usual Democratic tactic of destroying any who dare oppose their powerlust.

"They said I had a political agenda. I had no and have no political agenda whatsoever. I saw John Kerry on television saying he was running for the Democratic nomination for president, and I knew I couldn't ever see him as commander in chief -- not after what I saw in Vietnam, not after the lies I heard him tell about what he says he did and what he says others did."

Gardner's story is one that bears telling. He volunteered for the Navy, enlisting on his 18th birthday in February 1966. After training, he was shipped to Vietnam and served for two years as a gunner in the swift boat division. His superior, for four months, was none other than Lt. j.g. John F. Kerry.

"I had confrontations with him there. He nearly got us rammed by the VC one night because he wasn't watching the helm. I heard the motor coming close, turned on the spotlight, and the boat was only 90 feet away, coming fast. The VC was aiming an AK47 at us. I shot him out of the boat. We pulled a woman and a baby off the boat. Kerry wrote it up that we captured two VC and killed four more on the beach. None of that was true. The only thing true on Kerry's report was the date. The woman was catatonic and wouldn't call her baby VC and there were no VC on the beach. If we had seen that report before Kerry sent it up the chain of command, he would have been court-martialed and never allowed to run for office. And that's just the San Pan incident. There was much more. He is a self-aggrandizing bold-faced liar. I believe he caused the extension of that war."

Gardner told this story and others to radio stations and he wrote a piece for the local paper. Then, he says, he received a phone call from John Hurley, the veterans organizer for Kerry's campaign. Hurley, Gardner says, asked him to come out for Kerry. He told Hurley to leave him alone and that he'd never be for Kerry. It was then Gardner says, he was threatened with, "You better watch your step. We can look into your finances."

Next, Gardner said he received a call from Douglas Brinkley, the author of Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War. Brinkley told Gardner he was calling only to "fact check" the book -- which was already in print. "I told him that the guy in the book is not the same guy I served with. I told him Kerry was a coward. He would patrol the middle of the river. The canals were dangerous. He wouldn't go there unless he had another boat pushing him."

Days later, Brinkley called again, warning Gardner to expect some calls. It seems Brinkley had used the "fact checking" conversation to write an inflammatory article about Gardner for The article, implying that Gardner was politically motivated, appeared under the headline "The 10th Brother."

Twenty-four hours later, Gardner got an e-mail from his company, Millennium Information Services, informing him that his services would no longer be necessary. He was laid off in an e-mail -- by the same man who only days before had congratulated him for his exemplary work in a territory which covered North and South Carolina. The e-mail stated that his position was being eliminated. Since then, he's seen the company advertising for his old position. Gardner doesn't have the money to sue to get the job back.

"I'm broke. I've been hurt every way I can be hurt. I have no money in the bank but am doing little bits here and there to pay the bills," he said.

All the millions of dollars raised by Gardner and his fellow Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and all the proceeds from John O'Neill's book, Unfit for Command, go to families of veterans, POWs and MIAs.

And, even though Gardner is broke and jobless for speaking out, the husband and father of three says he'd do it all over again. He says it wasn't for politics. It was for America.

Now that Kerry has gone back to being an ineffectual Senatorial drone and lobbys for gay marriage so he can marry his sugar-daddy George Soros, has anyone heard about those "Brothers" who sold-out? Didn't think so. They served their purpose - now, BEAT IT, PEASANT!!!

Democrats: Crushing the Little Guys who don't know any better - so, y'all better watch out!

Ukranian Elections: Where's Jimmy Carter?

Listening to the coverage of the election there is giving me serious American Election deja vu, but what I found most interesting was this picture shown on Drudge:

Note the "Cat Power" salute! How much of the world's turmoil can be traced back to cats and their insiduous schemes to destabilize the human world?

The Economist on Dan Rather's Passing Into Infamy

A good piece at The Economist's site called "Dropping the anchorman" discussing the changes in the media to the disadvantage of the established lying liars of the Left. Some snips:

Next March will be exactly 24 years since Mr Rather took over from Walter Cronkite. But Mr Rather's reputation has not recovered from a “60 Minutes” documentary (made by CBS) which tried to raise questions about George Bush junior's service in the Texas National Guard. Mr Rather claimed to have documents proving that Mr Bush had violated a direct order to take a physical examination, and also that his superiors had been put under pressure to “sugarcoat” his evaluation. But within 14 hours internet sleuths had shown that the documents were forgeries. Mr Rather stood by his story for 12 excruciating days, while his supporters arrogantly contrasted the network's rigorous fact-checking with “a guy sitting in his living room in his pyjamas writing”. But the pyjama guy turned out to be right.

Mr Rather's retirement epitomises two broader shifts of power. First, the old media are losing power to the new. And, second, the liberal media establishment is losing power to a more diverse cacophony of new voices.

For most of the post-war era the American media were dominated by a comfortable liberal consensus. The New York Times was the undisputed king of the print news, while the network anchors lorded it over TV news. That consensus is now under siege. The attacks are partly coming from the cable networks—particularly from conservative Fox News. (Charles Krauthammer once quipped that Rupert Murdoch had spotted a niche market—half the country. Sure enough, Fox is now America's top-rated cable news network.) But old media also face a newer and more unpredictable source of competition—the blogosphere. Bloggers have discovered that all you need to set yourself up as a pundit is a website and an attitude.

Given America's fractious politics, it is easy to look at Mr Rather's retirement merely in terms of a left v right scorecard. But, more fundamentally, it is about choice.

Most Americans now get their news from an ever-proliferating range of sources: not just Fox or CNN, but also foreign newspapers and even the innumerable original documents that are now available at the touch of a button. And fewer people regard any single news source—be it CBS News or the New York Times—as the embodiment of truth.

And the most successful conservative bloggers are far from being party loyalists: look at the way in 2002 that they kept the heat on the Republicans' then Senate leader, Trent Lott, for racist remarks that the New York Times originally buried. It is a safe bet that, if the current Bush administration goes the way of previous second-term administrations and becomes consumed by scandals, conservative bloggers will be in the forefront of the scandal-mongering.

Mr Rather's passing does not mean that the liberal orthodoxy is about to give way to a new conservative one. It means that all orthodoxies are being chewed up by a voraciously unpredictable news media, which is surely all to the good.

Go read it all.

About this Dan Rather business....

You may think that a blog that had it's share of Rathergate posts would be doing a big happy dance over the announcement that he's stepping down as anchor of the "CBS Evening Story Half-Hour", but what's to be happy about? He's leaving a full six months after his failed attempt at character assassination on Dubya; he's still going to be working on "60 Minutes II", the scene of his latest journalistic war crimes; and he's leaving without any acknowledgement of his malfeasance. If anything, this is just a slightly earlier retirement date for someone who was shuffling into the Gold Watch Sunset for quite some time.

The fact that a grunt producer who broke into the last five minutes of "CSI: New York" to announce that Yassir "Blow you up real good!" Arafat has begun his final descent into Hell got sacked within a few days while Rather (along with Mary Mapes) attempted to smear Dubya with phony forgeries in coordination with Team Kerry and the DNC shows what the priorities of CBS News are.

Scrappleface summed it up nicely with "Dan Rather Scrambles to Confirm Story of His Resignation":

(2004-11-23) -- Veteran CBS News anchor Dan Rather this afternoon said he was "scrambling like a gila monster on hot sand" to verify allegations that he will step down from his role on the CBS Evening News in March 2005.

"If this is true, I want to break this story," said Mr. Rather as he rushed from his office to track down a hot tip on the story. "I received a fax from a Kinko's in Texas indicating that I'm relinquishing the anchor desk, but we need to run this past several handwriting experts and get it fully vetted before we break into programming with the announcement."

Declaration of Independence Unconstitutional?

It appears to be that way if the fascist principal of Stevens Creek School in Cupertino, CA has her way as detailed in "Declaration of Independence Banned at Calif School". In keeping with the liberal tenets of unmitigated bigotry against Christians - you may've noticed something about it in the comments by the Left following the Election - Patricia Vidmar has cracked down on Steven Williams for spreading his faith via the, get this, Declaration of Independence. Yep, cuz it mentions "God", the lil' kiddies must be prevented from being exposed to such superstition, lest they stop believing in government as the Almighty Power in their lives.

I wonder if Ms. Vidmar would mind if she stopped getting paid so that she didn't need to worry about all that "In God We Trust" hooey unsetting her?

And now....

Got my weekend plans covered!

Thursday, November 11, 2004

Don't Let The Door Hit You On The Ass On The Way Out!!!

The simpering, mewling, hypocritical sobbing of the Left continues on as detailed in the ABC News story, "Some Say America No Longer Feels Like Home", in which the pathetically immature twits who can't deal with being unable to lord liberal power over the rest of us weep and wail and book transit out of the U.S.

Sayonara! Buh-bye! See ya! You still here?

"After the election, my husband and I asked ourselves, 'How could our country be heading backward? How could so many people miss or choose to ignore the obvious failures of the Bush administration?'" the former Florida resident said.

During the lame years of the Clinton Regime, I don't recall any plans to flee the country from those disgusted that a plurality of the voters - remember: Clinton NEVER won a majority - would vote for such a corrupt schmuck, but whatever. Instead of quitting and running away, the GOP practiced some good old-fashioned politics and re-won power. Ain't nothing stopping the Dems from doing the same other than their ideas suck and no one supports them outside the blue counties.

I didn't vote for Dubya because of his failure to practice conservative principles, so I guess she's not complaining about me, but what she can't accept is that despite any qualms people may've had about Dubya, Kerry was so demonsterably worse an option, people held their nose and voted the lesser of two not-so-goods. You can't dismiss the fact that a hefty chunk of the electorate think Dubya is doing an A-OK job and reject the lies and fear of the Dems, too.

They say they feel the United States is changing in ways they do not like, and they feel powerless to stop it.

I'll bet they didn't care if conservatives didn't like the country dragged thru the mud by a weak-willed horndog who could've stopped everything but just fessing up.

"We were leaving anyhow, mostly because we want to start a family and we don't feel our children can get a decent education in the United States," said Brian Sinicki, of Laramie, Wyo.

Schools are under the control of the Democrats and the teachers unions, so this is ironic.

He said America's schools fail children by not teaching subjects like philosophy and civics, subjects that he said would give Americans not only a deeper understanding of the world, but an appreciation for why they should be more actively involved in the political process, not only voting but staying informed.

American kids can't f*cking READ, WRITE or FIGURE and he wants them to do philosophy?!? OK, fine....WHAT philosophy? Karl Marx or Ayn Rand? (Thought so.)

"Television I think has single-handedly destroyed the level of political discourse," he said. "When I talk to people about politics, they're either radically misinformed or they wouldn't know how to define the terms that they use."

This is true because whenever I speak out about the overbearing leviathan that is government and how it should be MUCH smaller and intrusive, I get called a "fascist". (Check a dictionary.) I suspect that's not what he meant.

she said her concern was more about the role Bush's religious beliefs seem to play in his governing, and the role of religion in American society — what she called "aggressive Christianity."

"There is this aggressive morality that seems to me to have nothing to do with Christianity," she said. "Our fathers were mostly Unitarians, not at all holy rollers."

You hear this a lot: Christianity has become TOO Christian and not New Age enough for thier sensitive tastes. "That Old Testament stuff is so medieval. Here, try my new lemon-scented God with less judgementalism and fewer carbs!", is what she'd probably prefer.

Here's where the "we're better than you are" stuff shows up:

She also said it feels like there has been a closing of the American mind.

"I can't understand when in our nation's history being an intellectual, having a questioning, curious mind, wanting to travel, became bad," she said. "I don't understand when it became stigmatized."

I'd like to ask her where the f*ck she gets off proclaiming herself so intellectually open-minded right after she slandered religion?

As evidenced by the hateful rhetoric of the campaign, liberals think anyone who doesn't toe their rigid ideological line are simply.....simple.

"I do love my country and it hurts me very deeply to see what's happening here, to see us so far off course," she said. "But I've met a lot of evangelicals and they believe it deeply. They'd rather vote for fetuses and against gay people, rather than voting against war, with thousands dead, against guns, which we know kill people. When you're talking about deeply held religious beliefs, you're out of luck."

As I was saying....

"I can no longer in good conscience support a nation that believes it is OK to lie to start wars," she said. "I will not live in a country where dumb and dumber are my two choices for president. I'm taking my assets out of the country and moving to Central America, where ironically, I will have more freedom to live my life without interference from a corrupt government. My husband and I will leave within four months."

If a Democrat gets elected in the next go around and/or the junta or whatever has a coup or she gets the runs, can we prevent her from coming back? Please?

"With the ban on gay marriage passing in so many states and the conservative agenda President Bush is taking, it doesn't feel safe in the U.S. any more," she said. "We are expecting that next year Bush will try to push the Federal Marriage Amendment Act through Congress again."

Now, I disagree with the FMA and considered it another demerit against Dubya for it's cynical political roots and blatantly anti-conservative Big Government interference in our lives, but to flee the country because it's going to go up for a vote shows the immaturity and catastrophic mindset of these dunderheads. If they still taught the Constitution, maybe she'd know that Dubya and the Congress are just the BEGINNING of the Amendment process, not the end.

As much as the Left likes to smear the Red States as the tip of the spear to exterminate gays, Oregon - one of those Blue States that they want to seceed to Canada passed their gay marriage proposal and I heard something on the radio (sorry, can't find the cite) to the effect that even in the Blue Counties of the Red States, the gay marriage issues passed.

Ponder that: The slur is that Red State people are homophobic animals, yet in Blue Counties, the majority also disapproves of gay marriage.

Huh? How can this be? Could it be that the Blue Counties aren't as socially advance as they hype themselves to be?


Michael Moore: "I'm not stopping until the Democrats are totally ruined!"

OK, that's not exactly what he said, but that's what the result will be of his planned continuation of the jihad that brought crushing defeat to the Democratic Party last week. "Fahrenheit 9/11½." is going to pile another load of manure on Dubya, because, according to Fatty:

"We want to document and commercialize it. Fifty-one percent of the American people lacked information (in this election) and we want to educate and enlighten them. They weren't told the truth. We're communicators and it's up to us to start doing it now."

Yeah,'re communicating that you....just...don'!!!! As long as the Left operates on the assumption that unless you agree with them, you're some sort of ignorant moron, they're going to see their chances get smaller and smaller. While that suits me fine - Democrats are dangerous - the alternative, Republicans, ain't much better and the non-starter status of 3rd parties isn't a good development for the Republic.

Also note that Moore plans to get even richer selling lies to his sheep. Sure, he talks about trying to get to the Truth, but the only truth that matters is checking some more bank. Fat Man needs to be fed, don't he?

So, go for it Mr. Riefenstahl! Document some more fantasies about Dubya and then put it out in time time, well....exactly WHAT? Even if people wanted to vote for Dubya a third time, he's not going to be on the ballot and since Cheney isn't gonna run, all the dirty laundry in the world will have NO EFFECT because they're not going to be on the ballot!!!!

The voters of 2008 are gonna choose between Hillary! and McCain or Guiliani. Whether Dubya was a cross-dressing Satanist or Cheney was a Sith Lord won't be a factor, so what's this for other than milking the flock?

John Ashcroft Resigns; Shredding of Constitution Left Unstarted.

The irony of the demonization of Ashcroft by the Democrats is that if they hadn't robbed him of his Senate seat in 2000 with their usual "steal what we can't win legitimately" antics, he wouldn't have been around to do the most disgraceful act an Attorney General has ever committed in office: Sing a stupid song he'd written about eagles at a press conference.

WTF was THAT about?!?!? Show some f*cking dignity you tool. Gah!!!! Orin Hatch doesn't do that!

"Dirk is a moron and his band's music sucks. "

Some cheerful asstackler keeps posting this in the comments sections and rather than clutter them with "post deleted" shrapnel or block anonymous comments, I'm posting it here for everyone to see and evaluate who of us is a moron and/or deficient on the talent front.

If only he/she had the stones to claim credit for their erudite antagonism. Tsk tsk.

20 Reasons Why you shouldn't post your picture on the internet:

Laugh HARD at the creativity of the Interweb. (Work safe - unless you get busted for laughing.)

The Backseat Philosopher: To My Fellow Democrats

Not all Democrats are lost in the Fever Swamps with Moore and Dean. This bloke actually shows some hope for a return to civility, not that the enraged and elite Left are gonna start listening to a sellout accomodationist like HIM.

Read every last word he's written, but for a quick taste, dig on this:

Our error is that we Democrats are far less understanding than we think we are. Our version of understanding the other side is to look at them from a psychological point of view while being completely unwilling to take their arguments seriously. "Well, he can't help himself, he's a right-wing religious zealot, so of course he's going to think like that." "Republicans who never served in war are hypocrites to send young men to die. " "Republicans are homophobes, probably because they can't deal with their secret desires." Anything but actually listening and responding to the arguments being made.

And when I say 'responding,' I don't just mean 'coming up with the best counterargument and pushing it.' Sometimes responding to an argument means finding the merit in it and possibly changing one's position. That is part of growth, right?

Here are some arguments that are being made that the Democratic party has simply not responded to, in the larger sense of the word "response":
  • Whatever the UN was, might have been, or should be, it now isn't. Genocidal tyrannies are on the Human Rights commision. Saddam Hussein funneled over 1.7 billion dollars to various decision makers and world leaders to weaken his sanctions program. One out of every three votes is about Israel. Until the UN is significantly reformed, you shouldn't take its decisions seriously.
  • If we view 1000 or even 10,000 dead soldiers as unacceptable, we will never be able to fight a real war again.
  • Proportional response with no preemption allows the other side to set the pace of the battle.
  • Just because it says something in the Bible doesn't mean there are no ancillary arguments supporting it. And just because someone uses the Bible as a source of their morality doesn't mean that any particular view of theirs is wrong. Actually, stuff that's lasted for thousands of years is more likely to be useful than stuff that was dreamed up in a French philosophy book.
I am not saying that all these arguments should win. But I do not hear enough Democrats elucidating reasoned counterarguments to these positions. "Bush insulted our allies and the UN," "Bush lied, people died," "We have become the aggressor," "Homophobia," "Religious nut." These are not responses, these are dismissals. When Democrats start actively responding, we will succeed. Until then, we will be increasingly ignored as irrelevent.

Someone want to tell Moby about this?

The Pitiful Sobs of a Dick Named Moby

Techno-dweeb Moby has been filling his diaper over the Election results because since he's no longer capable of making interesting or commercially desireable music (I did used to like his stuff - this isn't a political thing), he's bound his entire being up in being a self-abusing martyr for the Democratic cause.

While some self-pitying was to be expected, dig the depths of narcissistic immaturity Mopey wallows in:

OK, It's Done
11/3/2004 - New York City
can someone remind me why secession is not an option at this point?
i mean let's be realistic, we live in a divided country.
can't we have the breakaway republics of 'north-east-istan' and 'pacific-stan'?
wouldn't the red states be happier without us?
we could still travel freely and trade freely with them, but can't we just leave?
then you could have 3 countries:

one other option would be for us to all join the republican party en masse and make it socially liberal and fiscally conservative(as opposed to it's current 'socially puritanical/fiscally insane' status).

ok, it's done.
john kerry has seceded.
if you need us, my friends and i will be drunk for the next 4 years.

And then....

11/4/2004 - New York City
'dear rest of america,
can't you please let little old new york city secede from the rest of the nation?
we're very little and you probably wouldn't even notice that we were gone.
please? pretty please?
how about if we buy you guys donkeys?
will you let us secede if we buy each and every person in the rest of the united states a donkey?
you'd like to have your own friendly donkey, wouldn't you?
wouldn't you rather have a friendly donkey than a small insignificant city that no one really likes anyway?
we will be good neighbors, and you can come visit whenever you like(considering you have a valid passport).
again, please?
thank you very much, and i look forward to hearing your response.

Ooooh, a free donkey?

What Do We Do Now?
11/4/2004 - New York City
a lot of people have been asking me, 'what do we do now?'
well, my answer is kind of simple and probably disappointing.
we should have fun with our friends, and do good work, and maybe adopt a dog, and eat. eating is good.
in other words, we shouldn't let ourselves get distraught over politics.
yes, america has chosen gw bush as their president.
it's not what we wanted, but that's the way it is.
we can hope that maybe the 2nd bush term will be more moderate than the first(this isn't just me being willfully naive, i do believe that a 2nd bush term might be more moderate because he's not going to up for re-election again so he doesn't have to accomodate the christian right as slavishly as he's done in the 1st term).
we'll see what happens. sorry if i sound like i'm being wishy-washy, i just don't want us all to let ourselves sink into depression over the democratically expressed will of the majority of voting americans.
it is what it is, and being depressed and despondent isn't going to make anything better.
so go out and eat some ice cream and play with a dog and go see a movie with your friends.
the world will go on, don't let yourself get depressed, ok?

1. Don't get depressed? Dude....

B. I love his "yes, america has chosen gw bush as their president. it's not what we wanted, but that's the way it is." bit. When some people complained about Clinton being elected, did they take them seriously or did they laugh and kick some more sand in their faces?


But wait there's more!!!

Dear Canada
11/4/2004 - New York City
'dear canada,
now, more than ever, your neighbor to the south(aka-the blue states)needs you. most of us living in the northern and western parts of the united states don't feel very connected to the rest of the u.s, so can we bring our states and become part of canada?
we have a lot of money and some interesting cities and we promise not to be too much trouble.
the benefits to you:
a-in one fell swoop you can have southern california and new york city! surfing in canada! suddenly the u.n is on canadian soil! broadway is suddenly in canada! you could then say that canada is the birthplace of jazz and hip-hop!
b-money. cold hard cash. the red states in the u.s might have the voting power, but guess who has the money? yup, your friendly neighborhood blue states.
so when/if you accept our offer you will instantly become the richest country in the world! that sounds pretty good, right?
c-karma. accepting this offer will give you more good karma than you'd know what to do with(because you would instantly make 120 million people VERY happy).
so you get warm beaches, tons of cash, and good karma. who can say no to that?
please let us know if you accept the offer. given our enthusiasm to join canada it's safe to say that the details of the offer could probably be worked out in an afternoon.
thank you very much,
moby p.s-just to put your minds at ease, we do know that we can't bring our assault weapons with us.'

Let's dispose of this myth of "Blue States" right now. Check this map out:

Sorry, Mopey, but there aren't really any Blue States. You've got some heavily populated Blue COUNTIES, but no states, Bub. End of line, chump. (Alright, maybe Taxachusetts.)

Liberals in their infinitely hypocritical arrogance don't seem to mind that the VAST MAJORITY of counties in states with heavily Democratic enclaves are effectively disenfranchised - what's the use of being a conservative in upstate NY when Mopey and Michael Moore and their liberal pals in Manhattan will simply outnumber them? What happened to "every vote counting"?

Yeah, right.

When the only way Gore could've won was to use the popular vote total in 2000, the Left screamed that the Electoral College was archaic and needed to go. Well, were are those calls this year? (I know, I know....)

Colorado voted on - and Maine already has IIRC - using proportional distribution of electoral votes by district so that voters are more accurately represented instead of rural bergs being overwhelmed by big cities and I've alway thought that made sense. It'll never happen, because as the map shows, Democrats would never have another chance because the country is NOT even divided, but clearly tilted to the right.

Democrats and liberals don't believe in democracy. Never forget it.

Post-Armageddon Stuff & Nonsense

Well, it's two days after the Election and the world is still turning, despite Dubya getting re-elected. Looks like all the fear-mongering of the Left was just so much baloney after all.


While life moves on, there's some aftermath details that need to be noted and, as usual, we're on the case here.

Starting things off is Peggy Noonan's piece at OpinionJournal which includes this:

Who was the biggest loser of the 2004 election? It is easy to say Mr. Kerry: he was a poor candidate with a poor campaign. But I do think the biggest loser was the mainstream media, the famous MSM, the initials that became popular in this election cycle. Every time the big networks and big broadsheet national newspapers tried to pull off a bit of pro-liberal mischief--CBS and the fabricated Bush National Guard documents, the New York Times and bombgate, CBS's "60 Minutes" attempting to coordinate the breaking of bombgate on the Sunday before the election--the yeomen of the blogosphere and AM radio and the Internet took them down. It was to me a great historical development in the history of politics in America. It was Agincourt. It was the yeomen of King Harry taking down the French aristocracy with new technology and rough guts. God bless the pajama-clad yeomen of America. Some day, when America is hit again, and lines go down, and media are hard to get, these bloggers and site runners and independent Internetters of all sorts will find a way to file, and get their word out, and it will be part of the saving of our country.

Damn right! That's why the Left is so frothingly mad over the rise of the blogosphere: They no longer have the monopoly on the flow of information and it's a lot harder to brainwash the sheep.

Wah. Suck on it.

All over the Interweb, a lot of people are regurgitating their ideological masters' talking points and being generally sore losers. The central theme of most of their arguments is that the people who voted for Dubya - all 59+ million of them - are nothing more than stupid, Jesus freak rubes. When one poster tossed up the cannard of "Even if you like Bush I don't see how you would want a leader who divides the country so intensely.", I fired back with:


It wasn't Bush who divided the country, it was the whiny, spoiled liberals who thought they were entitled to perpetual rule and couldn't accept that they lost a close race in 2000. It's like if they were the Yankees who after winning the previous two World Series lost Game 7 by a score of 1-0 and decided that rather than shrugging it off, embarked on a 24/7 propaganda campaign to say that the entire National League was populated with inbred Nazi child molesters with bad fashion sense and can't dance.

It was impossible for Bush to repeat his "uniter, not divider" strategy from his Texas days when the entire liberal media/Democrat apparatus had declared jihad for the last 4 years, because for him to win again and retain control of Congress would mean the end of liberal control of government for another generation and liberals don't have anything useful to offer society other than ladling out government grift.

Look at the hateful rhetoric you guys are spewing. Are you planning on spending the next 4 years b!tching about Bush and the "stupid, Rube State, Jesus freak, homophobic, morons" who voted for him, as if a vote for Kerry is proof positive of superior intellect, whiter teeth and a shinier coat, while a vote for Bush means you probably don't know how to tie your shoes, use indoor plumbing or count to 21 without taking off your clothes?

And BUSH is the one dividing the country?!?!?!?

Other threads pointed to Kerry's strength in urban areas as proof that Republicans are dumb hicks who don't care about urban problems, cuz they've got theirs. Others have rebutted such nonsense and pointed out that most cities are too expensive for the poor to live in and it's the RICH who live downtown while the poor live in the outlying areas. (Not that the liberals are listening.)

Hmmm....I just checked back and this was posted below me, but in response to another point:

The difference between liberals like myself and the rest of the liberal crowd is that I have a firm grip on reality. Liberals like myself would rather unite, with no need to conquer, while twits like Moford want to drive the wege into the existing ideological chasm even deeper - pandering to the elite and arrogance twits who seemingly believe they are so much more cultured and highly bred than everyone else. He and others like him would lead people to believe that this is a battle. WTF? A battle against ourselves? People like him fearmonger by casually tossing the word "fascism" about like a frisbee yet, ironically enough, they appear to be setting themselves apart as the new Arayan liberals. Think of a Hitler salute with a latte grasped firmly in hand.

Just as Muslims need to reclaim their faith from the jihadists, it's time for the non-tinfoiled liberals to cut the Moores, Soroses and Deans loose. (Yeah, that'll happen.)

Ashlee Simpson Karaoke Edition iPod

Read the whole thing, cuz this is just the start:

Concede, You F*cking Pussy!!!!

Which part of "You got over 3.5 million fewer votes nationally AND your fake Ohio votes won't count!" is eluding your comprehension, Bub?

Time to, pardon the expression, move on.

UPDATE: AP is reporting that Kerry will make his concession speech at 1 p.m. Thanks for listening, you Feckless Crapweasel. Back to windsurfing and being a useless Senator for you, Francois. Hope Mommy Warbucks won't mind you wasting her inheritance on your ego trip.
