Friday Afternoon Getaway

Wrapping up this lousy week with a few odds and ends...

DUBYA'S "UNITED STATES OF WHATEVA!" - Obviously trying for some Jib-Jab level viral video notoriety, this remake of Liam Lynch's most-excellent "My United States Of Whateva" is kinda cute, though obviously meant to be the usual nasty hit piece. As the Wired poster wrote:

Judging from the opening animation, My United States of Whateva is intended as a biting satire of George W. Bush's policies, and it certainly works on that level. At the same time, though, I can't help but think Bush supporters might really like it as well. Such are the strange times we live in.
Oh, boo-friggedy-hoo. The stoopid Red Staters may see it as an appropriate FTW statement. Waaaaaaaaaah!!! Not enough hate for ya? Bah.

OH, CRAP! - I just noticed that I haven't posted anything since Monday?!? Yeesh. I was thinking of posting some stuff, but I guess that doesn't count, does it? That why everyone should add the feeds (at right) to their RSS readers so that they don't miss a single exciting episode of DIRKWORLD®!


1. Have you ever had an addiction?

I played so much Quake 3 that it delayed my band's album about a year.

2. Are you afraid of the dark?


3. What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip.

4. Have you ever been to the circus?

A few times, but not since childhood.

5. What do you think of North Korea testing nuclear weapons?

I think it's further evidence of the utter failure of the feckless and criminal Clinton Regime. They appeased Kim Jong-Il and gave him nuke tech in the hopes that it would keep him happy. Now that he's lobbing missiles toward Hawaii, the Clinton minions - like Madeline Albright - are taking to the airwaves to blame both Bush 41 and Dubya for this situation, as if they (the Clinton gang) didn't do anything to make the world less safe. (This is the same play they pulled after 9/11 - "It wasn't us!" Please.)

THE "KEN LAY AIN'T DEAD! DUBYA SNUCK HIM OUT!" MOONBATS: So, Enron evildoer Kenny-Boy Lay croaks of a heart attack and the insane Left immediately starts yelping that this is all a hoax in order to preserve Lay's "anal virginity" and to prevent seizure of his ill-gotten gains. One member of the Treason Media pinched off this charming missive which encapsulated the sheer hate and hypocrisy of the Left as he wrote:
But now that he's died of a heart attack in the luxury of his Colorado getaway while awaiting sentencing for his crimes, none of his victims will be able to contemplate that he's locked away in a place that makes the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel look like Hawaii; that he might be spending long nights locked in a cell with a panting tattooed monster named Sumo, a man of strange and constant demands; and long days in the prison laundry or jute mill or license plate factory, gibbering with anguish as fire-eyed psychopaths stare at him for unblinking hours while they sharpen spoons into jailhouse stilettos.

He will not be ground into gray jailhouse paste by listening to the eardrum-scarring symphony of 131-decibel despair that is the Muzak of penitentiaries, by gagging on the dead prison air, by choking on the deader food, by watching the blue sky taunt him with freedom over the exercise yard, and by feeling his nervous system rent by the cruel grenades of memories -- explosions of nostalgia for the days when he knew he'd be swanning forever through the comfy laps and cool lawns of luxury and infinite possibility.
It's funny how the people who caught the vapors at the slightest hint that terrorists at Gitmo may not be having their halal meals prepared by Wolfgang Puck and shrieked "TORTURE!" over infidels touching Korans are now upset that Lay wasn't repeatedly gang-raped in prison and believe that a big scam was perpetrated to deny them their schadenfreude. Of course, they're the same folks who proclaim that our privacy is being invaded if terror dollars and jihad phone calls are monitored, then cheer like giddy schoolgirls as Rush Limbaugh's medical issues are splashed all over the front pages. What hypocrites.

ON A LIGHTER NOTE, why not peruse a list of "The 100 Worst Album Covers Ever"? A sample:

Paddy Roberts - "Songs for Gay Dogs" (1966)

Wolfgang Pug licked his share of peanut butter to get this modeling gig. But playing "bury the bone" with Paddy was a low point in his career.
(That's not even a particularly good one, but more an inside joke for a friend.) Read 'am all!

DIRK'S DISK DU JOUR: Though she's really lost her appeal with all her party whoring and anorexic crack usage, there was a time when Lindsay Lohan - or "HO-han" as the g/f and I call her now - was quite the dish. In a recent issue of Premiere, they had her done up as iconic film characters and her Sally Bowles getup was pretty good and she had good boobage on the cover. I can't find either shot online, so this will have to do:

Sucks, don't it? {8p (Click for even bigger boobs!)

Remember, if you vote for Democrats, you're voting for surrender to Islamofascists, voting for dhimmitude and voting to make images such as these capital offenses. Yes, the Stupid Party is feckless and useless and too faux-moralistic, but they aren't gonna chop off any heads to cover up nubile starlets, ya dig?

What some of those America haters at the Cato institute think of our fearful leader:

"Unfortunately, far from defending the Constitution, President Bush has repeatedly sought to strip out the limits the document places on federal power. In its official legal briefs and public actions, the Bush administration has advanced a view of federal power that is astonishingly broad, a view that includes

* a federal government empowered to regulate core political speech—and restrict it greatly when it counts the most: in the days before a federal election;
* a president who cannot be restrained, through validly enacted statutes, from pursuing any tactic he believes to be effective in the war on terror;
* a president who has the inherent constitutional authority to designate American citizens suspected of terrorist activity as "enemy combatants," strip them of any constitutional protection, and lock them up without charges for the duration of the war on terror— in other words, perhaps forever; and
* a federal government with the power to supervise virtually every aspect of American life, from kindergarten, to marriage, to the

It's always amusing when - I'm assuming here - a Dubya-hating Lefty starts quoting the Cato Institute to bash Dubya when on any other day, they would have zero tolerance for the libertarian principles espoused by them. I'm also assuming that you overlooked the author's credits: Gene Healy is senior editor and author of "Arrogance of Power Reborn: The Imperial Presidency and Foreign Policy in the Clinton Years". Timothy Lynch is director of the Project on Criminal Justice and author of "Dereliction of Duty: The Constitutional Record of President Clinton."

Unlike the hypocritical Leftist Treason Media and sufferers of Bush Derangement Syndrome, Cato is going after Dubya on something other than sore-losing grievance and a thirst for revenge. While I disagree with many of their conclusions - e.g. terrorists are not eligible for Geneva Conventions protections - I appreciate that they didn't suddenly adopt these views because "the wrong party" is in power.

Cato has also been a loud proponent of open borders and while I can understand the Utopian rationale behind their position, in the Real World, it simply doesn't work. I don't necessarily agree 100% with the sites linked here, as long as their arguments are honest and well-reasoned, they will stay. Unlike the fascist Left, most conservative/libertarians actually practice the diversity and tolerance that the Left merely pays sneering lip-service to.
