Well, yeah.

Especially after this.

(Hint: "If you don't understand it, it look like magic.")

Michael Moore will never comment on this.

After all, the political class makes sure its own never serve in the military. Right?

When I downsize my life, this will be part of it.

This season of the Simpsons is disappointing me.

Last week had Lisa flirting with anorexia. This week the entire family escaped from a fascist America (helped by the French, no less). So far, the episodes are complete downers.


UPDATE: This week had Homer attending some sort of conference for women, and becoming ashamed of his penis. Meanwhile Barney rescues an old flame from a river of lava and gets half an hour of "thank you" sex. Basically, not funny.

Sid Blumenthal can't take a joke.

Just reading this, I'm reminded of the nervous, weasly, chain-smoking businessmancon-artist played by Martin Short on Saturday Night Live.

GPS receiver found in Fallujah, with waypoints from western Syria.

So, that rain of iron on Boy Assad, that's scheduled for when?


A couple of things occur to me after reading this.

1. When do the precision guided munitions start raining down on Iran?

2. For a suicide bomber, the first mission is the last.

I'm watching "This Week" with George Stephanopolous.

The gist: red-staters are hypocrites, red-staters vote from fear, red-staters are stingy.

They still don't get it. They're still telling the red-staters that failure to follow the left is a sin. They're already well on the way to ensuring Republican sweep every two yeas for the forseeable future.

"Are we there yet?"

Look for the Possum Fur Nipple Warmers.

Um..... Yuck!

In fact, shudder.

I love this interface.

"Alexander" flames out in its first weekend, down to #6 after maxing out a #3. It'll be out on DVD by January, no doubt.

I knew this was going to happen on Thursday. That's when I heard Cute Katie Couric - the Eva Braun of daytime TV - massage the conspiracy theorist's ego with stories of how the rest of the world regularly flocks to movies that Americans (read: Red-state bigots) have rejected.

There was talk of Alexander's bisexuality - couched nicely as a intellectual exploration - to heap the sins of homophobism and anti-intellectuallism upon the heads of the Red-state bigots.

Is it just me, or is anyone else noticing this losing left-wing strategy. What strategy? The strategy of winning the Red-staters back by telling them that failure to share left-wing tropes is, well, sinful.

What's really funny here is the asymmetry in the information exchange. Red-staters know all about left-wing tropes: all they have to do is turn on TV to get a bellyful of the sewage that is popular culture. Popular culture foisted on them by blue-staters. Blue-staters, by comparison, know nothing about right-wing tropes. Well, they know what they see on TV: blue-staters telling other blue-staters that red-staters are anti-intellectual, homophobic, bigots, and that the natural market for blue-stater produce is the rest of the world. In other words, they know damn little.


UPDATE: Lots of people despise this movie.


UPDATE: Right on time, the cry of HOMOPHOBE! It didn't flame out because it was a crap movie, no, it's that Americansred-staters are haters.


UPDATE: Actually, there's more to this trope. These days, many mainstream media shows are dedicated to trying to understand the red-stater mindset. The basic plot line is that red-staters go to church, hate gays, want God in schools, are concerned with morals, etc., etc. HOWEVER! These same red-staters have a real taste for the soft-core porn that is "Desperate Housewives" and the violence in "CSI". In other words, red-staters are HYPOCRITES! JUST AS WE THOUGHT!

What's ignored here is the difference between red- and blue-staters on morality. Blue-staters, having consigned God to the trash heap of history and declared man to be an amoral pig, proceed to wallow in slop. That's why so much popular culture is filth. Red-staters believe man can become better through the grace of God, and recognize man as a sinner who can do better. What blue-staters see as red-stater hypocracy is really delicious sinning, to be repented of at a later date.

As Oscar Wilde had it: "We're all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

Well, I don't know.

One of the cruder jokes of my younger years was: "How do you separate the men from the boys in Greece?" "With a cro-bar."

Smoke, fire, etc.

God bless America!

Imagine: this, the absolute low end of the American gastronomic food chain, is beyond the reach of much of the rest of the world. I mean, just tell me a Somalian wouldn't like one of these now and again.

As the article has it, "The equivalent of two Big Macs, it costs a mere £3. For £1 more, you can throw in a medium fries and a soft drink and consume an adult's recommended daily intake of calories at one sitting."

Think about it: £4 (about $6) for a day's worth of calories.

Presented without comment.

You really want to know how Arafat died?

OK, he got AIDS during one of his (regular) homosexual orgies with his bodyguards.

Hey, you asked.


UPDATE: Steady up, Tiger. Money comment: “I felt a compulsion to take a shower whenever I had been kissed by Arafat, or even just shaken his hand." Yuck!

Go ahead. Make my day!

There was a time when Canada punched way above its weight in international military affairs. I'm pretty sure that up until pretty recently, Canada had the world's third or fourth largest navy. Now? A collection of whiney liberals. Cold. Damp. Cold, damp, whiney liberals. With a happy attitude towards terrorists.

Right. Cold, damp, whiney, TARGETS.

This should make Mrs LivinInAmerica happy.

Damn! If Condi was a Democrat, would we see all this sewage?

We'll be hearing about this forever.

This will be out of the news in 24 hours.


UPDATE: Al Jazeera will not be showing the video of Margaret Hassan being executed.

UPDATE: "I wish the Americans had come here the very first day and not waited eight months," he said, trembling. A story you won't be seeing on Al Jazeera.

UPDATE: From the laws of combat, Number 4.

I love this:

"It should also be added that the way one comes out with the words is important in Japanese. If you are a man, you should spit the syllables out as though you were expelling vile-tasting marbles from your mouth. If you are a woman, you should murmur them demurely, while behind them you suppress something between a giggle and a plea."

When I lived in Japan I thought my Japanese was great, until one of my female co-workers informed me that I sounded like a "homosexual gay boy."

Expelling vile-tasting marbles it is!

I don't know what she's on, but I want some.

The Urban Archipelago.

Isn't that wild?!!?!! Most of Kerry voters live in hives.

It's interesting to read how those outside the archipelago are being characterized: "Citizens of the Urban Archipelago reject heartland 'values' like xenophobia, sexism, racism, and homophobia, as well as the more intolerant strains of Christianity that have taken root in this country. And we are the real Americans. They--rural, red-state voters, the denizens of the exurbs--are not real Americans. They are rubes, fools, and hate-mongers."

You know what? Keep thinking that way. Oh, and please nominate Hillary for President.


"The soldiers shared laughs during the more surreal moments, such as when a psychological-operations truck rolled through the city blaring the theme song to the movie 'Team America: World Police.' In the film, Rambo-like puppets hunt terrorists and blow up the Eiffel Tower in the process. There is no need to thank us, the puppets tell outraged Parisians."

America, Fuck Yeah!

"If a kid in a red state finds his daddy's handgun and blows his head off, we'll feel terrible (we're like that), but we'll try to look on the bright side: At least he won't grow up to vote like his dad."

Damn. What an unhappy little man.

Mind you, Dan Rather still has his job.

Of course, he's always worked to raise political awareness among the lumpen-proletariat. Besides, when he screws up, well, an entire dinosaur industry pauses in its tracks.

Dear Dan, at al., at CBS: the net has classified you as an outage and is currently routing around you.

Build the best paper airplane in the world!

Seen just now, on NBC: "After Fallujah, how the Resistance is Reshaping Itself!"

Resistance? For whom? Against whom? To me, it sounded like an advertisment for the Islamofascists.

I hope Kim Il Jong feels ronery.

I know the feeling.

Just this morning, Mrs. LivinInAmerica and I were talking about the same sort of thing.

CBS had better apologize for interrupting CSI to announce the death of that old butcher.

After the news division revealed itself, repeatedly, as a wholly-owned arm of the DNC, all they have left is entertainment. They'd better not screw that up.

Damn you, FCC!

Instead of "Saving Private Ryan," WSB's giving us the life of Jimmy Carter. The HGWIC came on and announced that they didn't want to risk FCC fines.

The life of Jimmy "I never met a brutal dictator I couldn't learn to love" Carter.

You know, history's greatest monster. The Malaise Forever guy.

Jesus H. Christ on a crutch!

"Tell me, Sir, is anything worn under the kilt?"

"No, Ma'am, everything's just as good as new!"


Love the Brits. Just love 'em.

"If you voted for Bush, we accept that we have to share the country with you. We're adjusting to the possibility that there may be more of you than there are of us. But don't demand our respect. You lost it on November 2."

Keep on keepin' on, dude: 2006 is a-comin' up fast, and 60+ Republican Senators looks mighty good to me.

Off to hell with you, you monster.

Whoops! Sorry. De mortuis nil, nisi bonum.

OK. He's dead. Good.

(Hat tip (in a roundabout way): John Cleese.)


UPDATE: "One day, we will have our own independent state with east Jerusalem as its capital," Erakat said. Quick question: "east Jerusalem"? Did that slimey sod just give away a negotiating position?


ANOTHER UPDATE: Am I the only one remembering 1972? The kids who were murdered in 1974? CNN really ought to be ashamed: They've got this soft-focus on a butchering monster. Oh, right, Jane, Ted. Scum.

Well, duh!

All Democrats and leftists should recognize that, no matter who's actually in power, we are ruled by cheats and crooks.

So, relax.

Me? I'm getting out my damned pitchfork!

Could the Islamofascists in Holland finally have gone too far?

I'm sorry for van Gogh's death, and wish it had never happened. On the other hand, if it wakes the Dutch to the horror they face, it'll not have been pointless.

The South has risen again!

The leftist hysteria is now officially over the top. The majority that voted for the President didn't vote based on national security, nor on tax reform, nor on social security reform, nor even on the basis that Kerry was a flip-flopper and his running mate was a pretty-boy.

No, we want our slavery back.

We immigrants from Viet Nam, Korea, Ireland, France, Kenya, Nigeria, India, China, the UK; we carpet-bagging yankees; we illegals from Mexico. We want our slavery back.

Well, all I can say is "Keep going!" I can think of no better way to ensure a permanent Democratic Party minority.

You just gotta love the web.

As GHWB might say, we'll mark you "Undecided."

(I will say, I'm beginning to regret the decline of civility in America.)

Saturday, November 06, 2004

Of course, the BBC can be depended upon NOT to cover this.

Oh, wait, sorry, it's America's fault, right?

Listen to this.

Let's see. They're praying that the President be assasinated. They think Americans are engaged in a Christian Jihad. Etc., etc.

This is pretty disgusting.

"Thou Shalt Not Kill": Unacceptable to Muslims.

I hope the Muslim world will understand that when they've pushed it *just far enough* the rest of the world is going to respond appropriately.

Hmmmm.

Talk about sour grapes.

Ho hum.

Bush wins!

Daschle is OUTTA THERE!!!!

Majette loses.

Georgia goes Republican.

The one sour note: Cynthia McKinney is my Representative once again. In other words, I have no representation.

My work mates are rabidly Democrat, with me as the one Libertarian/Republican. I expect many gloomy faces today.

What a week! I mean, Osama turned up last Saturday and barely made it through a 24-hour news cycle. Three years ago we were worried about more attacks from him. Now all he can muster is a videotape. If that doesn't imply that we're safer, I don't know what might.

What a year! The mainstream media has covered itself in shame. I mean, the pundits were sooooooo in league with Kerry. Think of Dan Rather and the forged documents. Think of 60 minutes and the story about the 380 tons of missing munitions - WHICH THEY WERE SAVING UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION. Thank God for the competitive pressure that drove the New York Times to publish early, in time for the story to be answered. This morning, watching Cutie Katie Couric (the Eva Braun of morning television) I was struck by how uncomfortable she looked - as if someone had let rip a really stinky fart in her face just before she came on the air. As Nelson Muntz would say: "HA-HAAAA!" I'm sure this guy is making plans to move back to Spain (check the posts for 1, 2, and 3 November, Ha HAAAA!). Well, Russ, Delta's still ready when you are!

Long term, the country is going Republican. Despite media coverage that - according to Evan Thomas - was worth 15 points in the polls for Kerry, and despite all the muck that was thrown, and despite the massive voter fraud in Philadelphia and Cincinnati, Bush won. This is a good thing.

It's a good thing because Bush intends to win the war on terror, he won't accept any let or hinderance on America's sovreignty, he will keep the tax cuts in place, he will address the mess that is Social Security. Basically, he'll create an ownership society while striking fear into enemies abroad. For example, I wouldn't want to be a jihadist in Fallujah at this moment. Kerry would have been Jimmy Carter, part two.


UPDATE: That comment about the mainstream media covering itself in shame turns out to be worse than I expected. Last night when I turned on the TV, Peter Jennings seemed really, really cheerful. Just listening to him, it came to me in a flash: THIS GUY ALREADY KNOWS BUSH HAS LOST! I mean, even Mrs. LivinInAmerica commented to me that I seemed to be resigning myself to a Kerry victory. Today I find that Jennings was working off exit poll numbers that showed Bush losing 60/40 in Pennsylvania, and by about 5 points in all the battleground states. No wonder he was so happy - at the time.

Today, the question is how the poll numbers could be so far off. Well, the poll was conducted only among city-dwellers, and was weighted more towards women than men. You know, the demographic likely to vote for Kerry. OK, the poll was flawed. Well, why was the poll so flawed? Only one answer: to depress Republican voters and make them less likely to turn out. That's how hand-in-glove the mainstream media was with Kerry.

The mainstream media has shot its bolt, and is in the process of melting down and lowing all its influence in America. There was a time, as recently as 10 years ago, when you could take exit polls to the bank. Then in 2000, voter turnout in the Florida panhandle was depressed by the Voter News Service fiasco. This time around, the mainstream media decided to use polling as a deliberate tactic against George Bush.

Nobody should be surprised about this. CBS, for one, was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party.

There is a downside, however. By throwing in with Kerry, and getting it soooooo wrong, the mainstream media has lost a lot of trust. In fact, in this internet world, the rest of America detects the mainstream media as a network outage, and routes around it.
