Fucking sick of everything

"There's only one party in America today, with two wings: the conservative wing, known as Democrats, and the reactionary wing, known as Republicans."

That about covers it

John Cole of Balloon Juice sums up the conservative crapweasel attitude about homosexuality:
“Homosexuality is wrong and the root of all evil and homosexual marriage will be the downfall of Western Society so we must amend the Constitution to ban it and we will use homosexuals as campaign props every two years, but oh, by the way, we hate the sin and not the sinner, and even then the sin doesn’t bother us that much as long as you stay in the closet and do whatever you want as long as we don’ know about it and we are fine with that but recognize we will still call you out in public as evil and scream about gay adoptions so we can get elected but if any of us are gay we should be allowed to keep that private and oh, by the way, you are not normal because the bible says so.”
Yup. That's about right.

Unfortunately, when I hear "Christians" like those on FreeRepublic talk about the evils of homosexuality, I can't help thinking of Kissing Hank's Ass.

Reflections on the situation in Iraq, courtesy of FreeRepublic

If we are forced to abandon this democracy project, the failure isn't ours -- it's the Iraqi's, especially the Sunnis and Shiites. To some extent, it's also Europe's fault (including the UK's) by forcing together people who clearly don't belong in the same country.
The Iraqi country Sunnis are Deliverance cretins times 5.
The Democrats and what passes today as the establishment U.S. news media have gone to great lengths to sabotage our efforts in Iraq, blunt the domestic war on terrorism and encourage every anti-American faction in the world. This has been done partly for partisan politics and partly in behalf of a delusional ideology that believes lice-infested savages and psychopathic dictators will respond to reason.
Modern Christians are civilized. We are trying to coax these people into the family of civilized man. If we were old school Christians they're men and boys would be dead and their women undergoing a seed change. As they would like very much to do to us if they could.
It may have worked better if the Dims/Pinkos/MSM/Jew-Haters/Iranians/Syrians hadn't been throwing wrenches in the works at every f%#king turn. Then again, it's possible they're not ready for democracy. Churchill suggested WWII might have been averted had a constitutional monarchy been established in Germany after WWI instead of a liberal democracy. The same may hold true in the Arab world.
Kill 'em all and let their god (if they have any) sort them out!
I'm getting tired of this shit! Why should we be allowed to be kicked around?

Bonus quote, about Barack Obama at a book signing:
There is one other aspect to Osama Obama that will preclude him from being elected POTUS. Call it crass, but the guy's picture could fit right in with the 9/11 hijackers photo's. A good portion of the electorate is going to take one look at this guy in the primary and say "he ain't from around here"....

Mind-blowing delusional quote of the day

On the recent outings of closeted gay Republicans:

"I am really disgusted by this.

An individual's private sexual preferences is not a matter for the public arena and not something we should be discussing about anyone. What the hell ever happened to the concept of "in private"? We're not even talking behavior - this is just the preferences we're talking about. That is private, unless an individual wants to make it public him/herself.

I blame Bill Clinton for dragging this subject into the public arena."

-random commenter at Little Green Footballs

The mind bobbles.

Not rocket surgery

Bill O'Reilly last night was all up in arms because some school district was going to celebrate Gay and Lesbian History Month. So he has this dour "gay activist" on (who started out by proclaiming that he was a Republican) to respond to his indignation. The guy timidly said something about other "History Month" celebrations that try to highlight the accomplishments of people traditionally left out of the history books.

But the difference, says Bill, is that gay is something you *do*, not something you *are.*

The "activist" didn't let out a peep.

Here's one way it could have gone, just off the top of my head:
"Bill, being gay is definitely something you are. Were you straight before you had sex? Of course you were. It's not about who you have sex with - it's about who you love. And as long as there are those who are willing to demonize gay people for political gain, [as his comments are illustrated by b-roll of transvestites in a gay pride parade] we feel it's important to highlight the accomplishments of gay and lesbian people in our society."
See? That wasn't difficult, was it?

Damn, people on the left are, by and large, a bunch of whining, weak, clueless, spineless appeasers. Start standing up for yourself, or I have no use for you.

UPDATE: Exception to the above: Russ Feingold. Go Russ.

We're all fucked

As of today, here's the deal.

The President can designate you (or anyone else) as an enemy combatant. If so, you can be held without trial indefinitely, without charges. If you are at some point tried in a military court (so you can be executed for war crimes), you won't be shown the evidence against you, you will have a court-appointed lawyer, and you can't appeal. Hearsay can be used as testimony, as can information beaten out of witnesses. Speaking of that, the President can decide what does and what does not constitute "torture" of you under rules that will not be disclosed to the public.

Basically, you're fucked.

Welcome to the world, baby.

UPDATE: Shocker - Fox News is already lying about the Military Commissions Act.

No one ever listens to my predictions

The 2008 Republican nominee for President will be a scary hard-righter like Rick Santorum, Tom Tancredo, or someone worse we haven't heard of yet. And he will win.

Crapweasel logic

Science is the new religion. Those leftists deny God's truth, so they need to worship something else. It's just a bunch of claptrap - why should we believe these so-called "scientists" anyway? What do they know? All this talk about "global warming" - hey, there was snow on my car yesterday morning, and it's only mid-October!

By the way, *my* religion is right.

Spoke too soon

"He's entitled to a defense of some sort, and a trial of some sort."

-Lying crapweasel Dean Esmay, pontificating on his idea of the legal rights of a convert to Islam who is the first American to be charged with treason since World War II.
Don't you just love the phrase "of some sort" there? Seems to me like you either have a proper defense and a fair trial, or you don't. I'm just a commie fascist sympathizer who wants to crown Osama bin Laden King of America, so don't mind me. Still, I wouldn't want Dean-O in charge of deciding what "sort" of defense and trial all his enemies get. Michael Moore, for instance, would probably be hauled before Judge Kim du Toit and summarily eviscerated by jackals, in a scene that would make the witch trial in "Monty Python" look like "Twelve Angry Men."

Sickening Quote of the Day (Hour? Minute?)

"I applaud the Iraqis for their courage in the face of violence. I am, you know, amazed that this is a society which so wants to be free that they’re willing to — you know, that there’s a level of violence that they tolerate."

-President Bush, news conference, Oct. 11

Heard around

Right-wing crapweasels should thank their lucky stars every day for Bill Clinton. For without Clinton, they would still be trying to blame everything on Carter.

Rock bottom, then 50 feet of crap

This week I've learned that it's scientifically impossible for the Republicans to hit rock bottom. There is no bottom for them. I used to joke, ruefully, that the President could reach into Dakota Fanning's chest on national TV, pull out her still-beating heart, and then eat it, and suffer no ill effects. But now with the crapweasel right-wingers trying to find ways to defend child predators and blame the victims, it's clear that they have no values, no standards - no center.

Will this cause them to lose the House or Senate this year? Nope. Because to paraphrase a commenter on Balloon Juice, the Reps are drowning, but the Dems don't have enough sense to toss them an anvil.

Lying crapweasels still get under my skin

Well I see that some people over at a certain lying crapweasel weblog are stirring up the Terri Schiavo pot again, claiming that some new therapy could have saved the vegetative Terri. No matter that the claim is absolutely untrue - that's never stopped them before. After all, they claimed, with absolutely no evidence, to be sure that Michael Schiavo killed his wife by somehow (they don't know how) causing her original injury.

Boy does that take me back. After all, how dare Michael Schiavo to spend years caring for his wife. How dare he try experimental treatments that took months but got no results. How dare he train to become an emergency room nurse to learn how to better care for Terri. How dare he start dating again, at the urging of the in-laws who would so viciously turn on him later. How dare he pursue a malpractice suit against his wife's doctors, the $1 million settlement of which was used for her care. And most of all, how dare he spend years of his life trying to carry out her wishes that she not sit for decades as a brainless husk in a hospital bed, being used as a cruel prop in a depraved political game.
