Good? He is not good, he's terrible, he's the worst.. there is not any man like him anywhere in the world!

Poor conservatives. It's almost like the universe has it out for them. Jindal says volcano monitoring is a waste and a big ol' volcano erupts right in the middle of the republicanist state with the republicanist governor in the country. DHS releases a report warning that right wing violence may ensue out of frustration at the election, the righty talking heads go apeshit and just a few months later a wave of right wing terrorism sweeps the land.

They just can't catch a break. Reality keeps tieng them up, stuffing a gimp ball in their mouth and shoving them roughly into a chest.

Yet, like happy little troopers they aren't going to let the fact that they live in a world built wholly of delusion constructed out of the combined imagination of people like Malkin, Beck, Rand (*) or Goldberg. They're the energizer bunnies of bullshit.

Triumph of the Will indeed.

The current Champions of Asshattery have to be Sarah Palin and her legions of mouth-breathing followers who are taking the art of manufactured outrage to 11.

It's clear to any sentient being (and most of the non-sentient elements listed on the periodic table for that matter) that David Letterman's joke about Palin's daughter was aimed at Bristol Palin, not the 14-year old nobody outside of Eastern Crazy Wingnutia has ever heard of. This is the same adult Bristol Palin that's spent the last few months dancing around on my teevee babbling about not engaging in any acts of depravity before you were ready. Once you're old enough; deprave away! I know I like to deprave every chance I get.

Just a few remarks culled from the legions of Big Thinkers defending Palin-

Palin is dead-on. Letterman is expired. NBC is garbage. This backsliding American culture keeps lowering the morality bar lower and lower. Palin and others who stand up to the fall should be praised. - American

CBS should fire lettermen, i will avoid there sponsors,criminal action should be taken and letterman should be listed as a child porn person.he should have to register as a sex offender. - Chad

Letterman is a moronic pig. No matter what I think about Palin, Letterman is pathetic and will do anything for attention. The disgusting thing is that democrats just love him and as long as he's spitting over the fence, they don't care who he offends. - Richard


I know, I know. You're probably reading those comments and thinking to yourselves the same thing I'm thinking - "I'm hungry. I wonder how long that sandwich has been in the fridge at work and will my coworker miss it if I snag the the thing?"

You also might be having some of the other same things going through your mind as I did after regarding those comments. Why does the mainstream media cover this nonsense? Who are the pond scum that are on Letterman's case and why am I developing that eye tic that's making me look like Clouseau's Chief Inspector Dreyfus?

When you were young did you ever play a board game with a friend that didn't like losing so they just made up new rules as the game went along? Didn't it make YOU feel crazy? That's how I feel when I turn on the television or read the newspaper these days.

You know who the sanest among us are? People like liberality or Fran who pretty much dropped blogging about politics. They've made a wise, healthy decision not to abide crazy.

Good on 'em.

I hear you. Trying to actually follow politics these days makes me feel ill; keeping abreast of the issues (heh, heh, I said "a breast") is one thing. Trying to make sense of the machinations of both parties attempting to either do something or not do anything about these issues does, as you say so well, make me "develop that eye tic that's making me look like Clouseau's Chief Inspector Dreyfus." I just went back and looked over my last week of posts. There's very little in there that's overtly political, and the bits that are are either snark or humor. If I don't laugh and ridicule, I'll cry.

But even though it's unhealthy, I can't quit it. Like beer, coffee, sweets, the stuff is addictive.

Bingo! But not only that, it is scary to talk with those crazy ass creeps. They know no reason. It can drive you crazy...

Here's the real kicker. It goes back to a basic Republican tactic of "If I say it, its okay, if you say it, it's offensive".

It's from the Hater section of the Onion AV Club entitles Only Sarah Palin Is Allowed To Make Inappropriate, Perverse Jokes About Her Daughter, Okay?

That being said, Dave should not have used that joke.

When you have no real political power, you have to make a lot of noise to stay in the public eye.

Or you have to murder a person or two.

Either one, really. Luckily, the Obama administration is following GOP fiscal policy better than they could themselves, so they can have their cake and whine about it too.

Excuse me, but what's wrong with Calvinball?

Communist.

Oh, and please ban Lockwood for usage of a dirty word.

Reality is the enemy of GOP and that why the will lose unless they change to a more moderate party

HA! Brilliant piece"! I especially liked,

"...will my coworker miss it if I snag the the thing?"

I have those thoughts daily!!! Great minds must think alike!! Can you pass the mustard?

One of the things that disturbs me so much is that I love good, honest debate. I think it's wonderful when two (or more) sides with a passionate desire to make the world a better place but who have differing opinions on how to accomplish that get together and debate and compromise a solution.

That's why the right wing distresses me so much. They have nothing productive to offer.

Not that I have ever found right-wing ideology constructive, but I think it's especially bad right now.

Palin/Letterman was never a story in the first place. MSM dragged it on. Letterman's joke was foolish, though. It was not funny, and merely mean-spirited.

I don't think that the joke was about non-consensual sex or rape or which daughter was at the game or even the age of the two girls. The joke was entirely that a famous girl that had unintentionally gotten pregnant in the past got unintentionally pregnant again in an unlikely set of circumstances.

The funny part is supposed to be the unlikely set of circumstances (the ball game), but the dig is against the famous girl that got pregnant in the joke in an unlikely way - AGAIN! Not funny. Not even close. The point is merely to be mean. Where is the funny part?

I have no sympathy for his getting trashed for this joke. It was just stupid.
