Recent Reading

On the trip over to Normandy-I had forgotten to charge my I-Pad. So I grabbed a book from the shelf to read on the train. Boy am I glad I did. It was an honor to re-immerse myself in this book.


Schlesinger, a life long liberal, was also an outstanding historian. And a superb writer. He never struck a mismatched key. For the writing alone-this book is worth a read, but more importantly, it is a stirring defense of humanity in government, and the willingness to adopt a creed other than that which inhabits the current GOP: " I got mine, fuck you!"

One of the most interesting things about reading the letters of Arthur Schlesinger is the quality of the discussion between him and those like Joseph and Stewart Alsop and many others. They held differing view points-but because they had the shared experience of a demanding education, and having to actually earn their way onto a writing staff-and live under an editor, the quality of what they produced was far superior to what the intellectual children, who presume to even think they have a right to sit at the grown ups table, produce now. The Krauthamers, Chunky Bobo, the plagiarist Malkin, all the members of the Liars Club-cretins like William Jacobsen, John Hinderaker, Mark Steyn, 3/4 of the blogosphere ( especially the mil-blogs)-what they produce is trash when held up in comparison to the quality of the writing that went forth from the great writers of the 50's and 60's. Near the end of his life Schlesinger saw this decline of intellectual rigor-and rightly chastised it, particularly those who fell for the shame that was what he called "Gingrichism" in the mid 90's. Altogether great history-a story the above listed children can not even begin to appreciate.

This is worth the money to buy.

Sideshow Bowe

It is with sad and undisguised disgust that I watch the collective conservative freak out of the release of SGT Bowe Berghdahl, the only prisoner of war held by the Taliban. In the early morning of June 30, 2009, Berghdal went missing from his unit's small outpost in Mest, a restive area in Paktia province. Within several hours, radio chatter from the Taliban indicated that they'd captured the soldier.

He spent the next five years in captivity, growing gaunt in the numerous propaganda videos that the Taliban trickled out to the press. On numerous occasions, they publicly threatened him with execution. Many Afghans and some Westerners in similar positions had been tortured, decapitated, or shot to death.

This passed weekend he was released by his captors in exchange for 5 prisoners being held in the concentration camp prison in Guantanamo Bay. And then the hounds of hell came rushing loose from the caves of the Glibertarian Kingdom.

And who was leading the way? Princess Dumbass of the Northwoods and The Town Hall Harlot herself.  She is pretty much setting a record for hysterical posts screaming about the man, which is a lot considering that this little specimen of female self loathing is always hysterical about something. But in this case-she has her well oiled plagiarism machine working till all hours of the night.

Over on Facebook or any of the normal blogs its no better either. The ranting is especially virulent. It runs along a consistent set of themes:

1) Obama negotiated with terrorists.Which is an interesting whine considering it simply makes him well, President, and is doing the same thing that Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Johnson, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and George W. Bush did.

2) Second, he released some bad guys.  People say he should not have done that. However, as the Christian Science Monitor points out-they were going to have to be released soon anyway:

But dealing with people you find odious – your enemies – is how most wars end. And with the US set for full withdrawal from Afghanistan at the end of 2016, the prospect of a crushing defeat for the Taliban is pretty much nil. Getting POWs back, whatever the circumstances of their capture, a crucial goal.

Did Obama just swap five dangerous "terrorists" for Bergdahl, as Sen. Cruz alleges? It depends on your definition of "terrorism."

Four of the five men released into Qatar's custody, where they are supposed to remain for at least a year before being allowed to return home, were indeed senior members of the Taliban movement. The Taliban have been seeking the release of the five in exchange for Bergdahl since 2011, and there had been fitful progress in that regard, with Qatar acting as a mediator, since at least 2013.

Outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai has sought in recent years to find a reconciliation deal with the Taliban, and the release of the "Guantanamo Five" has been a part of those efforts.


Boo fucking who. The guy is home and that is the main thing.

3) And of course now we come to the real turd in the punchbowl-the guy is alleged to be a deserter. Soonergrunt over at Balloon Juice addresses this in a quite logical fashion:

I don’t know if SGT Bergdahl voluntarily walked off his camp and surrendered to the enemy or not. Just because a few fellow Soldiers in his unit say that doesn’t make it so. The most powerful communication system in an Infantry company is what we used to call “S-5–rumor control.” I’ve never been in a unit that wasn’t essentially a knitting circle with automatic weapons. Young Soldiers, for whom boredom is an almost constant companion (punctuated by moments of sheer terror) can give the most catty junior high school girls’ clique a run for their money. That doesn’t mean it’s necessarily wrong, but I wouldn’t put a lot of stock in it without some corroboration. So I’ll hold off judgment on that. It’s also been brought up that he supposedly sent some emails to one or more people expressing doubts about US military actions. So did I. So have a lot of guys who then went out and did the very best they could do for their buddies and their country. It’s irrelevant anyway.

We’re getting out of Afghanistan, and the treaties to which this nation has repeatedly pledged itself require that we release Prisoners of War and repatriate them home. Taliban are distinct from Al Qaeda in this respect because Taliban could be considered the government forces of Afghanistan (whether legitimate, loved, respected, or not) while AQ isn’t anything but a bunch of thugs under international law. So this idea that we gave up valuable prisoners for one guy and that makes it a bad deal is bullshit on its face. We were going to release them. We were REQUIRED to release them under international law that we largely wrote. Whatever intelligence value they had was long since wrung out of them, in some cases literally. One of them had laid down his arms and pledged to work with the new government of Afghanistan prior to the Pakistani government taking him prisoner more as a propaganda tool and removing a potential political problem than anything else, I am given to understand. So we got something we wanted for doing something now that we would have done in a few months for nothing anyway. That’s not exactly brilliant poker, but it was pretty well played.

We don’t leave our people behind. That’s an Army value. The people ranting about this whole thing either don’t understand or don’t care about that simple concept. Whatever SGT Bergdahl may have done or not done, we don’t leave our people behind. If it hasn’t already, the Army will shortly start a 15-6 investigation, so called in reference to the Army Regulation that describes such things. You’ve probably heard the term “Board of Inquiry.” They are essentially the same thing. When the Army has concluded what the circumstances of SGT Bergdahl’s capture and captivity were, then they’ll make some decisions, but I’ll just note for the record that US POWs have rarely been punished for their actions or inactions while in enemy hands. Many, many of the POWs in Viet Nam, including John McCain signed documents created by their captors confessing to war crimes and indicting their fellow POWs and the US. Former CW4 Michael Durant, taken prisoner by a Somali warlord after being shot down in the battle of Mogadishu (Blackhawk Down) made problematic statements to a TV camera that were subsequently shown around the world. None of these men were ever subjected to disciplinary action upon repatriation to my knowledge.

So I’m glad that SGT Bergdahl will be reunited with his family, at long last.

David Graham over at the Atlantic points out much the same thing-pointing out too, that Obama made clear that he was not going to be bound by a stupid Congressional obstacle if it conflicted with his powers as Commander in Chief.  So much for the "he broke the law argument".

Obviously there is going to be an investigation. The Army will make a decision one way or another. And it will have to weight all the factors including what he suffered in captivity.  And somehow it will have to prove its case in court, if it has one. Personally,  I think all this public outrage is doing the defense attorney's job for him-it will make it impossible to prosecute, even if the Army did want to.

Clearly, however, the collective stupidity shown by all the usual suspects makes me wonder about how screwed up the land of my birth is becoming. Everyone needs to chill the f*ck out and remember this little tidbit of advice:



Nuff Said.

Not understanding the meaning of the word, “satire”.

I must admit, I am taking enormous pleasure at the conservative freak out over both Seth McFarland's hosting of the Oscars-and the appearance of Michelle Obama therein.

It is indeed laughable-because it shows what prudish jerks, a certain segment of American society is.

For starters-Family Guy is great. Its funny, edgy and a great satiric criticism of the trends in American society. Anyone who doesn't think so must be a conservative hack. Or a conservative whore-like Michelle Malkin. 

Or Jennifer Rubin.

 Rubin wrote a scathing review of the first lady’s appearance, complaining about nearly every word she said, and claiming she must have felt “entitled” to “intrude” on the big Hollywood night. In her eyes, an appearance like last night’s “makes both the president and the first lady seem small and grasping. In this case, it was just downright weird.”


There is a word for Jennifer Rubin. Its the same one the Onion used for Quvenzhané Wallis. ( if you can pronounce that name, you are a better man than I).

And the list of whiners goes on. 

The National Review put together their round-up of the various responses “mocking” the first lady. The Drudge Report called her a party crasher in his banner headline. The Breitbart team complained she hijacked the Oscars. Charles Johnson has a great round up of how truly demented most of the folks on the right wing side of the aisle are.

Hardly a group of "respectable" critics if you ask me. And clearly they have no sense of tradition whatsoever. ( But hey, what else did you expect from Andrew Breibart's useless children?)

Look, morons. If you had no idea Seth McFarland was going to be "edgy" then you are really stupid. You should probably go talk to your children who understand his work quite well. 

Now I will admit-what with the 9 hour time difference-I was not going to be able to stay awake for the Oscars. But I watched the re-runs this morning-and I thought Seth McFarland was funny.

And talented. Especially this bit:




Only a moron would think that was not cleverly done. And , by the way, correct. We did see their boobs ( Thanks be to God!)

So please, Ms. Malkin-since we already know what a whore you are-spare us the the criticisms of people who can pull off the role a lot better than you do!.

No comments required or desired.

I submit to you two quotes that help express my outrage at what happened in Connecticut today.


"Guns don't attack children; psychopaths and sadists do. But guns uniquely allow a psychopath to wreak death and

devastation on such a large scale so quickly and easily. America is the only country in which this happens again — and again and again."



Source-The Atlantic.



 "It's bad enough to have a gun lobby. It's the last straw when that lobby also sets up itself as the civility police. It may not be politically possible to do anything about the prevalence of weapons of mass murder. But it damn well ought to be possible to complain about them – and about the people who condone them."

And only a tacky, worthless whore like Michelle Malkin would dispute his right as a parent to be angry about this event.

Breitbart still sucks

Charles Johnson has observed on several occasions that while the late, not so dearly departed, Andrew Breitbart was well and truly one of the United States' biggest morons-the children who write in his stead can top it.


Sure enough, Breitbrat Ben Shapiro’s moronic attack on President Obama’s Thanksgiving address was rapidly picked up by the rest of the right wing Fake Outrage Machine. The Daily Caller has this article based on Shapiro’s post: Obama Thanksgiving Address: Calls to Unite Behind WH, Doesn’t Thank God.

Watch how the Daily Caller’s Christopher Bedford blatantly slants the story against President Obama, saying he “urged the country to unite behind his administration” twice, even though the actual quote from Obama’s speech says no such thing.


And true to form-the members of the Liars Club, led by Jim Hoft; the "Dumbest Man on the Internet" picked right up on it.

John Hinderaker, Jim Hoft, William Jacobson, the Town Hall Harlot: Michelle Malkin-who is spending the weekend looking down on Wal Mart protestors for having the audacity to publicly point out the company could do more for its workers-and of course lets not forget the collective stupidity that is Breitbart. They are all contemptible people. As stupid and vile as you might expect.

The Liars Club

Is that group of increasingly reprehensible bloggers who make up the "professional right wing blogosphere". (Membership names listed below).  Besides the fact that they generally have their facts wrong-they are just about universally a group of douchbags loathsome group of people to be around. Their blogs are essentially interchangeable, fact free-and in general-poorly written and edited.

So imagine my surprise when , this guy paid them a visit last week:


NEW YORK — In an effort to reach out to conservative media, presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney and wife Ann met for two hours Wednesday with several dozen conservative bloggers, reporters and columnists in an off-the-record gathering at a private Washington, D.C. club, according to attendees.

Romney, who struggled with some members of the conservative media during the Republican primary, is banking on their support in his campaign against President Barack Obama, regardless of whether they were previously in his corner or not.

The attendees came from numerous conservative sites and right-of-center publications, including National Review, Daily Caller, American Spectator,Washington Examiner, Human Events, RedState, Right Wing News, Powerline, Townhall, Ace of Spades, RiehlWorldView, White House Dossier and PJ MediaRNC chairman Reince Preibus also attended.

Details of the Romney meeting did not previously leak out because of the off-the-record ground rules…

As to why he was not invited, Andrew Breitbart could not be reached for comment.

But rest assurred, his snot nosed, idiotic, children where there.


The meeting, which included writers from RedState and as well as a list of conservative publications reported by Huffington Post — National Review, Daily Caller, American Spectator, Washington Examiner, Powerline*, Townhall,, RiehlWorldView, White House Dossier, and PJ Media (though not, as an early report had suggested, the conspiracist site WorldNetDaily). RNC chairman Reince Preibus also attended.

Notably, the meeting also included some grassroots bloggers with no real institutional ties to the Washington Republican Establishment, including the Twitter virtuoso Ace of Spades and John Hawkins of Right Wing News.

John Hinderaker and his blog Powerline, are especially vile-especially given the fact that in this election, as in the last, he is something of a special pleader:


[* Powerline Proprietor John Hinderaker is the newest Koch installation on the Cato Institute Board of Directors, his firm does work for Koch and the blog was prominent in the takedown of Dan Rather via blogswarm. This memory will be important below.]


I despise John Hinderaker-and everything he and the rest of that crowd represents. If you want a great example of why I am down on American politics-look no further than this: The GOP nominee having to grovel before this group of lunatics.


PS-If you want a pretty good accounting of what a loons Hinderaker and his supporters are-look no further than here.

I'm tired of seeing your vile trash everytime I open up Memeorandum.

Dear Mr. Murrow…..

We humbly apologize for what the stupidity of the average American, the greed of the companies that have bought our networks, and the relentless pace of technology ( especially with respect to video editing) has done to your once noble profession.-Skippy-san.

There are two pieces of reporting on journalism that you should take the time to read and listen to this weekend. The first is this article by Ted Koppel on how the stupidity of the consumer of news, coupled with the unrestrained greed of the network owners combined to kill “real news”.

We live now in a cable news universe that celebrates the opinions of Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly – individuals who hold up the twin pillars of political partisanship and who are encouraged to do so by their parent organizations because their brand of analysis and commentary is highly profitable.

The commercial success of both Fox News and MSNBC is a source of nonpartisan sadness for me. While I can appreciate the financial logic of drowning television viewers in a flood of opinions designed to confirm their own biases, the trend is not good for the republic. It is, though, the natural outcome of a growing sense of national entitlement. Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s oft-quoted observation that “everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts,” seems almost quaint in an environment that flaunts opinions as though they were facts.

And so, among the many benefits we have come to believe the founding fathers intended for us, the latest is news we can choose. Beginning, perhaps, from the reasonable perspective that absolute objectivity is unattainable, Fox News and MSNBC no longer even attempt it. They show us the world not as it is, but as partisans (and loyal viewers) at either end of the political spectrum would like it to be. This is to journalism what Bernie Madoff was to investment: He told his customers what they wanted to hear, and by the time they learned the truth, their money was gone.

It’s a fascinating and depressing recounting of the truth. How our news networks, pushed by the increasing competition from “news outlets” that are hardly worthy of the name. ( Insert Drudge, just about all blogs, talk radio, and host of other examples of mediocrity here. Especially on the conservative side of the aisle). In particular I found his point about the value of having lived overseas to be very true. To form an honest opinion of America and not be swept up by the myth of “American exceptionalism”-one has to step away from America for a while.

I recall a Washington meeting many years later at which Michael Eisner, then the chief executive of Disney, ABC’s parent company, took questions from a group of ABC News correspondents and compared our status in the corporate structure to that of the Disney artists who create the company’s world-famous cartoons. (He clearly and sincerely intended the analogy to flatter us.) Even they, Eisner pointed out, were expected to make budget cuts; we would have to do the same.

I mentioned several names to Eisner and asked if he recognized any. He did not. They were, I said, ABC correspondents and cameramen who had been killed or wounded while on assignment. While appreciating the enormous talent of the corporation’s cartoonists, I pointed out that working on a television crew, covering wars, revolutions and natural disasters, was different. The suggestion was not well received.

The parent companies of all three networks would ultimately find a common way of dealing with the risk and expense inherent in operating news bureaus around the world: They would eliminate them. Peter Jennings and I, who joined ABC News within a year of each other in the early 1960s, were profoundly influenced by our years as foreign correspondents. When we became the anchors and managing editors of our respective programs, we tried to make sure foreign news remained a major ingredient. It was a struggle.

Sadly Ted Koppel represents the tail end of a dying breed. Those of us who saw them in our youth, and grew up with Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, Walter Kronkite and others, are now in no position to convey the experience to our attention deficit affected, more youthful,  fellow citizens. I remain comforted by the idea that Murrow-who I was not old enough to experience-would have been just as disgusted by Twitter as I am.

Here is the other take on the news by Jon Stewart. Its long at 9+ minutes, but it is worth your time:

You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things!
O you hard hearts, you cruel men of Rome,
Knew you not Pompey?

And what will we have to show for it?

4 Billion Dollars. That’s the amount of money spent on the midterm elections this year.

Its a staggering sum-especially when you consider that the supposed central theme of this election year is anger about money being wasted.

4 billion dollars. Thing what that money could have done put to a good use. It could be making a good dent on research for AIDS, cancer, and other scourges of our existence. For that kind of money we could fund new schools in a lot of places. We could build a high speed train system between Atlanta and Washington DC. We could do a lot of things.

Instead-as a whole- the country wasted it on this:

I am no political theorist. But here is a concept that seems obvious to me. If you populate government with ignorant people, or with people who avowedly disrespect government, or with people whose background and experience and public integrity in no way merit political office, sooner or later you will have worse governance. The same is true if you elect leaders following political campaigns that overflow with hysteria. Four billion dollars spent to scare voters. Four billion spent to preserve the lobbyists’ hold on Washington. Garbage in, garbage out. “Everything is amplified,” Jon Stewart said Saturday at his “Restore Sanity” rally, “so nothing gets heard.”

Unbelievable. And what is truly appalling is that people are putting up with it. In the case of the Tea Party-they are actively encouraging collective ignorance. AS Bloomberg noted recently-in this election cycle, barely 3-out 10 Americans know the true facts about the economy and what’s happened to it since 2008. (I’ll have more on this later).

4 billion dollars. Wasted. The Tea Bag nation must be so proud of themselves.

This is no way to run a railroad (or a country).

Indeed, the 2010 crop of campaign insanity, unleashed by Citizens United, explains precisely why the “Restore Sanity” rally with Stewart and Stephen Colbert has resonated so well. A great many people, and especially a great number of younger people, want adults in Washington who will act with foresight and selflessness. And this includes the media estalishment. The ralliers are skeptical of a politics-centric media they see in self-sustaining partnership with the engines of the political campaigns. These people want smart candidates. They want even smarter elected officials. And they don’t want to feel like they are being played by Establishment journalists. They don’t see the wisdom they know democracy needs in and around Washigton; instead, they see high comedy, a tragi-comedy really, unfolding on their watch.

Democracy demands wisdom. But this year, all democracy seems to have offered is Christine O’Donnell, with her proud ignorance, and Alvin Greene, with his own baffling riff, and dozens of other candidates unworthy of our respect, let alone our votes. It has given us a candidate, California’s Meg Whitman, who wants so desperately to be elected that she was willing to spend nearly $200 million of her own money to do so, a fact which ought to legally disqualify her from politics again. And it has given us Sarah Palin, the avatar of the naton’s latest know-nothing movement, looming in the wings. Friends, this is no way to run a democracy, much less a wise one.

The Silly Season

Whenever I turn on the TV these days-especially if I am flipping through Fox News-here is what I see:


What is it about August that brings out the silliness in people? Last year was the election-so there was sort of an excuse. Not sure what it is this year, but the buffoonery index is still quite high.

When I see some of the stupidty that passes for informed dialogue these days, there’s only one thing that makes the pain go away:


Which always puts me in a better mood to think about what is really important:

Things in common…

What do The Townhall Harlot and the Chinese government have in common?

They can both dish out criticism, but they cannot take it. With the Chinese, it seems they don’t like having the truth about their stinking commie government pointed out by CNN. With Michelle Malkin it has to do with any feedback that is not laudatory to her, praising her fifth grade prose, or otherwise making her out to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Now its no secret that I have no use for this particular Pinay. And I was going to set out on a rant-until I found out that the work had already been done for me:

subject Unhinged: Exposing a very Rude Asian Girl


I am writing about the messy silly child like article you wrote about “Snob-ama not alone out there”.

FYI, I am from a small town in Pennsylvania and graduated from a nearby university in West Virginia. FYI, Obama is right on the money about the jobs drying up, guns, religion, etc. However, he forgot about the crystal meth, drugs, alcohol, gun deaths, etc. You need to get out of the office, stop writing junk mail, do your home work, and stop stealing one liners from the O’Reiley Factor. Michelle you even been to Pennsylvania? Probably not……..

I watch the FACTOR on FOX regularly. When you come on the show, I am so turned off by you, your negative energy, rude behavior, unprovoked personal attacks on guests, and snobbery that I actually turn the channel until FOX sponsors put the hook around your neck and yank you off the air. You seem like a miserable human being.

How did you get that job? You have no talent and can barely write a fluid sentence. I have yet to see you have one smart, engaged, ORIGINAL intellectual thought, and down to earth conversation. I have yet see you treat a guest on the FACTOR with respect and without personal attacks. I guess that people like you and Anne Coulter rehearse your LINES in the mirror to see whom can say the most outrageous things.

I am sure your life is not perfect and I am also sure that you have never lived nor been to any small town Pennsylvania. I don’t see any Asians in the back woods honey.

People like you try to make a quick buck (leach) on the coat tails of talented hard working smart All-American people by trying to tear them down with stupid unfounded remarks. For instance, I watched John McCain doing a public Q&A on C-Span this week (The Week of April 14 to 20) and the question came up about Obama being an Elitist. Guess what? – You were wrong. FYI, Senator McCain said “NO – I don’t believe Obama is an Elitist – McCain went on to say ” Obama made a mistake and used the wrong words – BUT Obama was correct about small towns – FYI – Michelle – the people in small town America are angry.”

Michelle – if anybody is a snob – ITS you. We are lucky to have people like Obama and McCain step up to the plate like true All American men, ignore your trash mouth, and try to make a difference. Lastly, what have you done to make America a better place to live. I can only imagine you are a “taker”, sensationalist, story teller, opportunist, and a bad journalist.

I also find you to be rude, obnoxious, talentless, and probably an EEO hire to fill an Asian hiring requirement. Seriously, if you lost your job, NOBODY at FOX or in Pennsylvania would care because we don’t listen to your negative personal attacks on good American people. Where in the hell did you attend journalism school. China?

An editorial comment……..

The comment section of a blog is designed to support varying degrees of opinion.  That is why I do not moderate comments over here-and unlike some people, I can tolerate people who do not agree with my point of view.  If need be I can edit out what I need to.

Speaking of Pox’s-I am always amazed at the veracity with which people defend Michelle Malkin( I will not link to her-ever again). She is a poor author, a bad journalist, and beneath contempt. A pox on those with no sense of humor or ability to see that if the situation was reversed-she would be equally as ugly. And you two guys would eat it up. As my old friend Forrest says-stupid is as stupid does. It is especially stupid of her to put up a post that invites those who hate her,  to Google her favorite phrase in the entire world.

And you call me rude.

Bite me.

That is all. We now return you to your normal viewing.

Boo hoo……….

Boo F**king hoo for Michelle Malkin.

Seems she is all upset that the Atlanta Journal Constitution featured her in this cartoon

She once again shows that she likes to dish it out, but she can’t take it when the slime sticks to her new (Fox news paid for) clothes.

As a result her readership probably jumped again, so she is laughing all the way to the bank.

Worthless bitch.

Redefining terms.



Spike has it right-America has gone off the deep end socially and politically.

I also owe every freelancer from Orchard Road to the LA Cafe to Wanchai an unqualified apology.

You see, I used to call Michelle MacaganlangMalkin a whore. Now I realize that by doing so, I’m doing real whores a huge disservice. They at least perform some sort of useful service for the money they receive and unlike Malkin-actually know how to do something useful with their mouths and fingers.  Then again real “sales professionals” know a thing or two about keeping the customer satisfied-for at least a while.

So to all the girls I have seen and hope to see again in the above listed locations, you have my sincere apologies for putting Malkin in the same league with these hard working women.

They can be taught…………..

Whoo boy! You know something is wrong with the world when Geraldo Rivera is channeling yours truly.

“Michelle Malkin is the most vile, hateful commentator I’ve ever met in my life,” he says. “She actually believes that neighbors should start snitching out neighbors, and we should be deporting people.

“It’s good she’s in D.C. and I’m in New York,” Rivera sneers. “I’d spit on her if I saw her.”

Except of course one has to wonder. Is this another one of those, “Lets trash each other on air, improve our ratings and walk laughing, hand in hand, to the nearest Citibank” type of gimmicks that more than one Fox broadcasting team has pulled off?

And secondly, would the man be just as upset if his name was Geraldo Jones?

Enquiring minds really want to know.

Stupid, stupid, stupid………

That’s what Michelle Malkin is.

Apparently, loyalty is a one way virtue within the Republican party and if one does not sing the hymn of “War without end-amen!”-the only correct response is to immediately abandon one’s fellow republicans. It does not matter how much work these same Republicans have done, or what their voting record is-in the topsy turvy world that passes for informed discussion within the Washington DC these days, it is clear that “Dissent equals treason”.

That’s what the Town Hall Harlot wants you believe. Its also what a whole host of milbloggers and political bloggers on the right want you to think too.

Actual words matter not.

Reasoned thought matters not.

A track record of doing distasteful work for the President matters not one wit. Its only, “What have done for me lately?” that matters to this crowd.

Consider how quickly the cheerleader branded Trent Lott as a surrender monkey, for having the effrontery to suggest that maybe, just maybe, after 4 years of pissing away opportunity after opportunity, Americans have a right to be impatient with the Iraqis.

Now mind you, Lott never said anything about leaving or withdrawing-synonymous in this crowd with the word surrender-he simply said that:

Lott’s comment Monday put a fine point on what Senate Republican stalwarts have been discussing quietly for weeks. It also echoed remarks made this weekend by House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, indicating the GOP’s limited patience on the war. “I do think this fall we have to see some significant changes on the ground, in Baghdad and other surrounding areas,” Lott, R-Miss., told reporters. Lott declined to say what he thinks should happen if Congress does not see improvement in the security situation by then. But he said lawmakers have time before they must decide.Bush announced in January that he planned to send to Iraq 21,500 more combat troops, plus several thousand more support troops, in an attempt to tamp down violence in Baghdad and the western Anbar province. Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq, said he could give a better assessment in September of whether the strategy is working.

Yea baby, that’s really waving the old white flag that is…………….funny thing though, Lott has consistently voted with the White House and never mentioned the “W” word once. But the little bitch still wants him to get a White Feather.

And now comes a new object for their scorn. The delegation of 11 Republicans who are guilty of the cardinal sin of being “moderate” in a party of extremists are being taken to task for having the audacity to go to the White House and tell the President what 72% of the country already knows: That people are sick and tired of seeing Americans get killed in Iraq for a bunch of Arabs who won’t help themselves. And that the public’s patience with Iraq, the Iraqis and the whole stupid mess is pretty well used up.

Plus, the solutions that are being offered by the Bush administration just don’t make any sense. Reza Aslan explains it

You can go here, here, here, here, and here to read bloggers who are unhappy that Congressional Representatives would actually dare to go tell the President the truth.

Seems the President is not too happy with them either. John Cole sums it up well:

While I am glad members of the GOP are finally beginning to come to terms with the fact that we are in a bloody version of Groundhog Day in Iraq, it is a little infuriating that it took political pressure in their home districts to drive home the point. Have they not been watching the news, reading the briefings, and, you know, paying attention?Regardless, let me be thefirst second to tell the poor dears: BUSH DOES

He doesn’t care about your plight. Loyalty, to this administration, is a one way street. You simply need to understand that we are going to be in Iraq until the Decider/Commander Guy and his folks can figure out a way to blame the Democrats prior to the 2008 election.

Lets see. They voted with the President to oppose the most recent version of the war funding supplemental. They voted with the President to support previous funding bills. They say all the right things in public.

Their reward for all that work-to be cast into the outer darkness. That’s what Republicans do to people who deviate from the party’s script.

As for that contentious meeting with moderate House Republicans so widely reported yesterday (see yesterday’s column, Bush’s Bubble Breached), signs are that Bush and his aides were furious, rather than chastened, by the brutal reality check — and by the fact that it was made
public.Jonathan Weisman writes in The Washington Post: “White House political adviser Karl Rove, furious that Republican moderates had divulged a confrontational meeting they had on Tuesday with Bush on the war, started yesterday with an angry conversation with the meeting’s organizer, Rep. Mark Steven Kirk (R-Ill.), according to several GOP lawmakers. Dan Meyer, the White House’s chief lobbyist, called the other participants to express the administration’s unhappiness.”

Karl does not just get mad, he gets even. Ask the Attorney General about that. You will be lucky to see dime one from the RNC next year guys. Besides when Dick Cheney gets back there will be hell to pay. And not one of these people has EVER, EVER actually voted against the President:

Cheney was even more dismissive of the moderates and their plea for an exit strategy: “We didn’t get elected to be popular,” he said. “We didn’t get elected to worry just about the fate of the Republican Party. Our mission is to do everything we can to prevail on what is now, we believe, a global conflict, a fundamental test of the character of the American people.”

Translation: You bastards are really going to pay for this.

Bob Alexander: Share? Share? You don’t call a press conference. I call a press conference. You’re nothing. Do you understand? You’re nobody.

Like Cheney has any credibility anymore. But he’s still dangerous for at least 18 more months. Especially as the scramble goes on for deck chairs here:

And the band plays on!

In the Republican party, unlike in life, moderation is not a virtue.
