I thirst for Kool-Aid... the Kool-Aid looks so tasty

Rude Pundit on Al Gore:

Last night, Gore was as you've heard, loose, funny, and smart. Goddamn, so fuckin' smart. Every time he opened his mouth to discuss some aspect of melting ice caps or fuel efficiency, you just wanted to weep, thinking, "Jesus Christ, he won. Motherfucker won. He should be our president right now, not that inarticulate, shit-tossing baboon hunched in the ditch next to Tony Blair right now." What Gore does better than anyone in the Democratic Party right now, from Hillary Clinton to Russ Feingold, is articulate liberal issues as moral callings. Not squishy, feel-good sentiments, but deep in the soul, religious, even, moral purposes. Like, you know, Christians are supposed to do.
This is just going to get more and more difficult to deal with as we approach 2008, isn't it?

It's almost as if they were trained in military strategy or something

I just don't get this at all. Jack Murtha has been villified by everyone in right-wing punditry for his statements about U.S. soldiers massacring unarmed Iraqi civilians. But it turns out, sadly, that Murtha was completely right.

That's not all, though. Remember retired Lt. General Paul Van Riper? The guy who ran those military war games a few years back, and after wiping out the U.S. Army in simulations was ordered to adhere to rules designed to ensure the U.S. won? All the conservative weblogs have been tearing into him about his strategies being ludicrous and unrealistic. Now, it turns out he was completely right.

This is an alarming, and completely confusing trend. Murtha and Van Riper are merely former well-established members of the U.S. Armed Forces. But neither of them have a weblog. How are they able to make these accurate opinions about military outcome in Iraq? How in the hell did they get it right where Michelle Malkin, TownHall, PowerLine, and FreeRepublic got it wrong?

We may never know, I guess.

Compassionate Conservatism

Tom Coburn thinks if you can't speak English, you don't deserve health care.

America!

Random blog entry I just read on MySpace:

I got sent a photo of balls the other day in my myspace inbox. Yes - BALLS.

Please don't send me pictures of your balls. They are ugly.

Thanks.

We live in enlightened times.

Facts get in way of troll vomit

Jay Tea, known fan of this establishment, spews racist, baseless nonsense. Jay Tea gets smacked. Jay Tea tries to cover own ass. Jay Tea gets spanked several more times. I point and laugh.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammo

There is, of course, a fantastic difference between adhering to one's religious faith and using one's religious faith as an excuse to make others adhere to something. Rarely are more perfect examples of this disparity presented than here.

Latest comic - "Ben Ferguson is a frigging idiot"

I've watched young chickenhawk Ben make the argument several times now courtesy of Crooks & Liars, and I remain amazed that in an already weak, pathetic attempt to cover up his cowardice, Ferguson actually picks the worst analogy in every measurable aspect to dodge the question. These are the moments that make contemplating the mind of the young conservative just so hard, despite having had knowledge of Ferguson for some time now. Forgive the cheap shot, but this was not exactly a proud moment for home schooling.

This is normally the point where I just say but some crap, but this week it's an extra-special call to buy crap, for lo, there is new crap. I am happy to announce that signed copies of Attitude 3 are now available for purchase on the merchandise page. It's the same as what you can get on Amazon, only I'll have signed it. The excitement you have to that prospect is perfectly measured by your decision to purchase it or not. So, pending your level of love for my signature, buy some crap.
