Who Are You Calling Angry, You Unhinged Moonbat?

Michelle Malkin takes down Janeane Garofalo - a person who I used to have a fondness for before she contracted terminal Bush Derangement Syndrome and became another hateful fascist zombie - after her appearance on MS-NBC.

Read it all, but here's the sauce:

Accessorized by a permanent scowl (hard to believe she was once considered a comedienne), Ms. Garofalo accused conservatives of having "an anger management problem. Without a trace of irony, the frowning Garofalo griped about "right-wing partisan hacks who are always on the verge of punching somebody or always behave as if they've just been cut off in traffic."

This, dear readers, is a classic case of liberal projection. Like CNN executive Jonathan Klein, who derided Fox's audience as full of "angry white men, and those men tend to be rabid," and liberal comedian Bill Maher, who also railed that "Republicans need anger management" and are possessed with a "vein-popping, gut-churning rage that consumes the entire right wing," Ms. Garafolo crossly blames the Right while denying the pathological wrath and fury that characterize the unhinged Left.

Who are you calling angry, Ms. Garofalo? You want political road rage? Let's start with Al. Take your pick: Sharpton. Gore. Franken. Yearrghh!

Now, open your eyes:

It isn't out-of-control conservatives tossing Molotov cocktails at police officers in San Francisco, burning American soldiers in effigy, and smearing pig's blood and feces on the walls and windows of military recruitment centers across the country to protest on behalf of peace.

It isn't rage-blinded conservative professors who embrace fragging (the murder of American soldiers by their fellow soldiers on the battlefield) as a legitimate anti-war tactic.

It isn't vengeful conservatives torching SUVs, condo developments, and research facilities, and targeting biotech and pharmaceutical company employees and their families to protest on behalf of the environment.

It wasn't mad conservatives sporting "F*** Bush" license plates, punching cardboard cutouts of the president, and vowing to secede after losing the 2004 presidential election.

It wasn't rabid conservatives who gloated over Ronald Reagan's death or John Ashcroft's pancreatitis.

It wasn't a gut-busting conservative journalist who vowed to kill herself if Dick Cheney ran for president. (That would be the perpetually agrrieved Helen Thomas.)

It wasn't hate-filled Republican officials who reportedly screamed "faggot" and "fruitcake" and "I'll break your nose" at their political opponents. (Those were all Democrats: Pennsylvania state legislator Vincent Fumo, California Rep. Pete Stark, and Virginia Rep. Jim Moran, respectively.)

It isn't fanatical conservatives joking about the assassination of President Bush and the execution of his Republican aides. (That, Ms. Garofalo, would include your Air America colleagues. But I'll forgive you if you weren't tuned in to them. Few are.)


My Christmas wish for Ms. Garofalo and her ilk: a mirror and a clue to make the yuletide bright. In the meantime, when vein-popping liberals start seething about the rage of the Right, the wisest action for peaceful right-wingers I can recommend is this:

14:57...14:58...14:59...15:00!!! Time's Up!!!

We interupt this Operational Hold to bring this photo of Cindy Sheehan waiting for people to worship her....

The media used to be careful to make it look like she had a crowd, even if there were only a few people there. Now, they don't care. The Left has MOVED ON.

Buh-bye, Cindy. Now maybe Casey can rest in peace without you using his casket as a soapbox.
UPDATE: Apparently, Cindy is pitching a hissy about these photos and claiming, get this, that it's a RIGHT-WING PLOT to make it look like she's lost her following of insane America-haters. Gee, she didn't have a problem when the media was closely cropping the frames to make her small gatherings look like a huge throng, so why is she - and her Lefty moonbat pals - suddenly shrieking that coverage is slanted?!?

Amazing what happens when the Left has the Truth about them revealed. They just can't handle the Truth!!!

Dirkworld® Operational Hold Announcement.

Since I'm swamped with writing work and am taking a few days off to catch up, there won't be any updates until at least mid-week, next week. If you do the RSS thing, be sure to add my feed (available at right) to your list so as to be sure not to miss any important updates.

One thing that's been lost in the shuffle was a huge list of the lies of Joe Wilson and how the liberal media has been giving him a pass to promulgate the meme that his wife was outed by Scooter and the Darths - Rove and Cheney.

The Media Blog on National Review Online has been tracking this closely, so go check out how Wilson lied on Larry King and the rapidly-growing "Dishonor Roll" on liberal news outfits that blatantly repeat the Wilson meme in all denial of reality.

Everyone have a good weekend. Don't forget to vote against fascist Democrats (what you vote FOR is up to you). Comments are off (for real) and I'll see y'all next week.

Two Questions for George Tenet

The American Thinker has an interesting piece about the weird details behind the mess caused by the CIA sending the lying Joe Wilson to Niger. Read it all, but here's the sauce for "Slam Dunk":

Finally, the spotlight has started to swing away from Lewis Libby and his allegedly perjurous grand-jury testimony toward where that spotlight should have focused all along: on the CIA’s incompetent, weird – and possibly treasonous—response to Vice President Cheney’s inquiry about Iraq’s interest in purchasing yellowcake from Niger.


All this raises two important questions for George Tenet, who was Director of Central Intelligence during all the time that “Plamegate” was going on:

• Why did the CIA, under your direction, treat the Vice President’s query about Iraqi efforts to purchase yellowcake in Niger so casually?

• When Joe Wilson started blabbing in public about his CIA mission to Niger – and lying about what he reported to the CIA upon his return – why didn’t you say something rather than allow the President’s credibility to be shredded?

These days George Tenet – to whom President Bush inexplicably awarded the Medal of Freedom, our country’s highest civilian honor—is raking in a fortune on the lecture circuit. Perhaps someone in his next audience will take the opportunity to ask these questions and insist on answers – which is more than any of the hot-shot reporters in Washington seems interested in doing.

Buy A CD, Destroy Your PC!

I never ceased to be amazed at the ways the music Industry™ finds to further destroy themselves with regard to how they treat their customers. Nevermind that the music these days blows goats to the point that I don't even care what's out there - and I'm a musician! - but when labels place digital rights management software on CDs that prevents people from ripping them into their iPods and now Sony Music CDs surreptitiously install DRM Trojan horses on PCs, you've got to wonder what blend of crack, meth and stupidity these idiots are smoking.

In an effort to crack down on P2P piracy - an overstated bogeyman if there ever was one - the labels are agressively punishing THEIR PAYING CUSTOMERS by rewarding their purchase with a f*cked-up computer! The labels tried to use the fear of downloaded viruses to scare people into being legit and then turn around and secretly install viruses onto the computers of the people foolish enough to listen to their propaganda.

It's sad to say, but at the moment, stealing is safer than buying and until the public and the artists fight back, it's not going to get better. Perhaps a class-action lawsuit and some Federal hacking charges will focus their attention? Doubt it.

If you're super-geeky, the particulars of how this works can be found here.

UPDATE: Yeesh. Five seconds after I post this, I see that Sony has released a patch to remove this Trojan junk. Of course, people have to know about the existance of the spyware in the first place and just how f*cked-up is it that now we have to be aware of updates to our CDs?!?!?

The Physics of Bras

Learn about the research into new hi-tech boob hammocks. ;)

Fake Documentary Alert!!!

Remember "Sicko"? That was supposed to be Michael Moore's follow-up to his liberal porn epic "Farginghype 7-11" making up sh*t about the pharmaceutical industry, but it appears that he doesn't care about poor people supposedly being soaked for their medicine when he can exploit the people soaked by Hurricane Katrina for his own personal enrichment.

Ergo, that brings us Katrina: The Wrath Of Bush which has already been giving a slot at the Canne Film Festival, home to all cinema that is anti-American. Gotta love those French - we sacrifice thousands of soldiers to liberate them from the Nazis and they repay us by taking oil bribes from Saddam and opposing our self-defense.

I see that the Muslims are rioting and burning over there. Don't call us, Francoise.
