The Faces Of Evil

Photo: Mitt Romney relaxes with family backstage before debate - via @dgjackson

What kind of bizarre freaks have pictures of themselves put on the walls backstage before a Presidential debate?

Not to mention the excess of grandchildren. These entitled Mormon fucks should stop spawning little resource consumers who will take much more than their share of everything & ruin the planet for the rest of us. Wait'll you get your own planet & car elevator beyond the grave, you fucking jerks.

Random Threats

If we hear Alicia Keyes screeching (Shrieking?) "This girl's on fi-yah!" in that fucking ShittyBank commercial w/ the guy who was dumped for being boring one more time, she will be on literal fire.


Foiled Again

We were gong to note how appropriate it is to have the third & final Sacks of Presidential Shit debate in Florida's Boca Raton, as we were laboring under the impression that Boca Raton translates as Mouse/Rat Mouth, but the usual cursory search reveals that's not the actual origin of the name, so fuck it.

We'll be watching the beisbol game anyway, because we are a real American.

Speaking of coverage of the national pastime, sideline/dugout/whatever reporter Erin Andrews, isn't FOX Sports paying you enough that you could hire a voice coach? Jesus fucking goddam Christ, you sound like a 'tween being strangled. Of course FOX Sports hired you w/o insisting that you learn how to speak as if you'd actually finished puberty, so they're as much to blame. Just as w/ FOX News, apparently all it takes is a bottle of hair color.

Only In These United Snakes

Or should that be United Skunks?
FREEDOM, Pa. (AP) — Police say a costumed 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot outside a western Pennsylvania home during a Halloween party by a relative who thought she was a skunk.

New Sewickley Township police say the girl was over a hillside and wearing a black costume and a black hat with a white tassel. Chief Ronald Leindecker says a male relative mistook her for a skunk and fired a shotgun, hitting her in the shoulder Saturday night.

Leindecker tells the Beaver County Times that the girl was alert and talking when she was flown to a hospital in Pittsburgh, about 30 miles away. Her condition was unavailable.

Leindecker says the man hadn't been drinking and he doesn't know whether charges will be filed.

From the Police Blotter, "sharp object" violence at a restaurant ten or so blocks from our bunker. This is a photo (1 October 2012) of an A.C. unit working hard at the HoJo Hotel on the southwest corner of the intersection, directly across the street from the crime scene on the southeast corner.
Next time get guns & gas, you two fucking losers. This is high-tech America, not some developing country shit-hole!

Thank You, TG!

Catch fellow Californian Tengrain chez lui, where, for someone who (unlike us) appears to have a "real world" job, he cranks out a hell of a lot of content (& quality) every day.

And thanks to Aunt Snow for bringing our 15 secs. of fame to our attention. Are we gracious or what?

Quote Of The Day (44 Yrs. Ago)

TNR doesn't give the date, but we'll assume it was after Kuchel's primary loss in 1968. Anyway, from the plus ça change ... file:
When conservatives defeated moderate California Senator Thomas Kuchel, he lashed out at what he called a “fanatical neo-fascist political cult” in the grips of a “strange mixture of corrosive hatred and sickening fear.”
And something interesting we didn't know:
While Kuchel was campaigning against Goldwater, there circulated a "vicious document" that purported to be an affidavit signed by a Los Angeles police officer, saying that in 1949 he had arrested Kuchel. The document said the arrest was for drunkenness while Kuchel had been in the midst of a sex act. Four men were indicted for the libel: Norman H. Krause, bar owner and ex-Los Angeles policeman, who in 1950 did arrest two people who worked in Kuchel's office for drunkenness; Jack D. Clemmons, a Los Angeles police sergeant until his resignation two weeks before his arrest; John F. Fergus, a public relations man for Eversharp, Inc., who in 1947 was charged with possession of a concealed weapon and given a suspended sentence, and Francis A. Capell of Zarephath, New Jersey, the publisher of a right wing newsletter.

Kuchel was narrowly defeated in the Republican primary in 1968 by conservative state Superintendent of Public Instruction Max Rafferty, who went on to lose the general election to Alan Cranston, the former state Controller, a position once held by Kuchel himself.
Full disclosure (as if it means a damn thing): Our dead as a fucking doorknoblate mother was a volunteer in Rafferty's 1962 campaign, & there exists somewhere (Maybe.) a photograph of physically violent asshole Rafferty
(While an undergraduate at UCLA, Rafferty "took umbrage at many of the things" in the college newspaper, the Daily Bruin, "particularly the editorial page," editor Stanley Rubin recalled in 1970, "to the point of charging into the office and physically attacking me."[3] In 1937 Rafferty wrote a letter to the Los Angeles Times in which he described The Bruin as "one of the most prejudiced newspapers on the Pacific Coast" and complained that the Bruin's "radicalism is not so funny if it keeps you from getting a job."[4])

Added value! Cast-autographing song:"I hope you heal up real quick!"

Blogspot Evil-Doing News & The Usual Passive-Aggressive Death Threats/Not So Secret Desires

If you Bloggerers haven't noticed, you can again test-play embedded videos in Preview. Why that ever changed is beyond us, but we're merely human, not fascist-corporatist robot entrepreneurs.

And 'though we've sent several increasingly angry, rude & obscene feedbacks about having both the Compose & HTML fields visible at the same time (as of last night it was still driving us insane like a fork in the brain) we never moaned about videos not playing in Preview. It's as if they aren't even paying attention.

Boy howdy would we like to be in the same room as those two assholes Brin & Page for just a few minutes. Perhaps a bit of karma has been rendered, but that's about like us losing a buck fifty from our US$20.00 wad. We are reduced to hoping that one day while filthy communist Brin is enjoying himself parachuting (on our fucking dime) neither his main 'chute nor his reserve 'chute will open. SPLAT!
Sergey Brin: Bound for mush, if we have anything to say about it.
Or a whale will fucking eat him. (Google's fucking world-wide collection of server farms is probably releasing so much carbon dioxide evil his precious fucking whales will boil to death. Hypocrite.) Fingers crossed.

D'Souza Duh'Spews

Beautiful Mind

(Or "B.M." Which. Ever.)

Here is a wonderful quote from the website of adulterous liar & hypocrite Dinesh D'Souza. Try not to hurt yourselves laughing & laughing & laughing.
Atheists beware: this book contains incontrovertible evidence of a benevolent and omniscient Creator. What is that evidence? It is the spectacular mind of Dinesh D’Souza. Believing such a mind could be the product of random forces would take infinitely more faith than believing in unicorns and leprechauns. A triumphant tour de force.”
ERIC METAXAS, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
That is one spectacular mind inside that "chewed up baseball head" of D'Souza's.

How spectacular? We quote:
“I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced.”
Has he noticed the Law of Gravity at work yet?

If we are to believe this D'Souza opus,
he & his skanky also-married girlfriend"fianceé" will be directly responsible for the next terror attack or act of terrorism (You decide.) committed against his adopted country. Way to go, two-faced libertine asshole.

Special request going out to the chewed-up baseball head:Do it until his bobblehead fucking comes apart at the seams. Can his naturalization be revoked for moral turpitude & filthy degeneracy so we can ship his sorry chewed-up baseball of a head back to his motherland before the jihadis come to punish us again?

Someone rational watched chewed-up's movie, too. What a disgusting & incompetent shit-fest it is.

Life In The Semi-Tropics

Nervous Norvous that we are, we'd have jumped about 10 ft. while screeching. And of course the damn thing would still be attached to us. From.

And in the earthquake zone: Not as cool.

Shrinkage In The Tool Dep't.

We're running about 12 hrs. late on the reader, & don't know how much macho outrage this has generated, but it would appear that American manhood has been deflated just a bit more, as the last bastion of Yankee masculinity, the hardware store, is threatened by a bunch of California (Figures, doesn't it?) corporate fairies.
California-based home and garden retailer Orchard Supply Hardware has gone to great lengths to cater to women like no other hardware store we know of. They paid attention to the details:

Lower shelving, clear directional signage, shorter aisles, and a "racetrack" design encourage a woman customer’s roam-and-explore shopping style

Color-coded "neighborhood" groupings: red for tools, green for outdoor, yellow for interiors and decor.
Shorter aisles, shorter ding-dongs: Can you feel it shrinking, dudes?

Mormon Dating & Marriage

Not sure how we missed this, but are there not laws about this sort of thing?
Ann and Mitt got married four years to the day after their first date on March 21, when she was 15 and he was 18.
Of course, who the hell knows what the statutory rape & child molestation laws are in Michigan? And many wealthy families are happy to whore their female children to wealthier families. Can't have them running off w/ the chauffeur, after all.

Maybe after Mitt outlaws abortion he'll repeal all those silly laws that say a guy can't marry just as many 14-yr. olds as he can get. And then he'll pardon Warren Jeffs.

But How Does This Affect Megan McArdle?

Also, Mickey Kaus right?
P.P.S.: You think Barry Diller can afford to pay Howie Kurtz’s salary and Andrew Sullivan’s salary and Megan McArdle’s salary and Peter Boyer’s salary on the revenues from a website? I don’t. The market is about to be flooded with high-priced talent jumping ship, or being pushed. …
Yes, it appears this Boyer person is already history. On the other hand, they wouldn't have stopped print-Newsweek if it were making money, would they? So if they've stopped the bleeding, maybe there'll be more or sufficient money to pay the remaining "high-priced talent."

Looks like Kaus may only be mostly wrong, not actually correct. We'd hate to see McArdle replace him at Tucker's repository of high-priced talent. She might not work as cheaply as he does.

Another 50 Yrs. Of Shit Have Passed

And w/ their passing we mark a rounded anniv. of yet another something.
On October 15, the CIA's National Photographic Interpretation Center reviewed the U-2 photographs and identified objects that they interpreted as medium range ballistic missiles. That evening, the CIA notified the Department of State and at 8:30 pm EDT, National Security Adviser McGeorge Bundy elected to wait until morning to tell the President. Secretary of Defens Robert McNamara was briefed at midnight. The next morning, Bundy met with Kennedy and showed him the U-2 photographs and briefed him on the CIA's analysis of the images.
Fuck Wikipedia, here's Chomsky:
Another candidate is October 26th. That day has been selected as “the most dangerous moment” by B-52 pilot Major Don Clawson, who piloted one of those NATO aircraft and provides a hair-raising description of details of the Chrome Dome (CD) missions during the crisis -- “B-52s on airborne alert” with nuclear weapons “on board and ready to use.” October 26th was the day when “the nation was closest to nuclear war,” he writes in his “irreverent anecdotes of an Air Force pilot,” Is That Something the Crew Should Know? On that day, Clawson himself was in a good position to set off a likely terminal cataclysm. He concludes, “We were damned lucky we didn’t blow up the world -- and no thanks to the political or military leadership of this country.”

Why Does Andrew Sullivan
Hate The Free Market?

Still bitching about NYC:

God Damn America!!

Fuck those two old whores from the Dreadful Grate (Lesh & Weir) who sang the National War Anthem, & that whore Lenny Williams, former Tower of Power vocalist, who sang "Gawd Bless America" to "honor America & our 'military troops' around the world." Fuck all three in the throat w/ a cheese grater so they can NEVER AGAIN use their voices to celebrate imperialism & murder. Sickening pukes. May their careers stay in the toilets in which they were forged.

Yes, the P.A. woman said "military troops" when she introduced whore Williams & "GBA." Redundant & retarded.

Sex & Religous Experience
In Puritan America

More therapy. Stat!

Screwed up in the head true crime (& now S-E-X) author Suzy Spencer ("a mostly celibate, middle-aged Southern Baptist with a self-described 'terror of touch'”):
Oh yes. One time when I was living in L.A. and I was having sex with this guy and I’m lying there looking at the ceiling and over to the right filling up practically the entire ceiling, just like Woody Allen in “New York Stories” with his mother filling up the New York skyline, I’m seeing my mother’s face and she’s so upset and saying, “This is wrong! How can you be doing this?” Then I look over to the left and in a teeny tiny corner of the ceiling there is God going, “It’s OK. I don’t like this, but I understand. It’s OK.” I’m still confused about premarital sex, whether it’s right or wrong, but I know God understands and it’s OK.
We honestly don't mean to pick on this apparently-tortured-by-hallucinations-of-her-mother woman (Salon asked: "You start the book off by writing about your 'terror of touch*.' You hated to be tickled or even hugged as a child. You state flat-out that you don’t know whether this arose from abuse in your past, of which you have no memory, or whether you had simply been around so many people who had been molested that you 'absorbed' their feelings." Get that? "... simply been around so many people who had been molested that you 'absorbed' their feelings." All nice families, we assume.) but this is the nature of Southern Bab-tiss religion? A tiny, disapproving (Yet accepting. How morally relative.) hallucination in the corner of the ceiling? While "having sex?"

Their religion has been debased from the already self-centered "personal relationship w/ Jesus" to a personal hallucination starring Ceiling Cat. How truly exceptional this fucking country is.

Wondering if you heard the quote from a pollster that EJ Dionne mentionned [sic] on (I think) the Rachel Maddow Show. Anyway, the pollster, according to Dionne, said, “Whwn [sic] I come out with a poll with bad news for Republicans, they want to kill me. When I come out with a poll that’s bad for Democrats, they want to kill themselves.” I think that comes really close to explaining the difference between the two parties and what has been happening since that first disastrous debate.

Bonus Quote of the Day

"Well, I've taken a look at both sides of the thing. And it seems to me that evolution takes a tremendous amount of faith. To have all of a sudden all of the different things that have to be lined up, to create something as sophisticated as life, it takes a lot of faith. I don't see it as even as a matter of science, because I don't know if you can prove one or the other."

-- Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), from a recording obtained by Think Progress at a Tea Party meeting this week.

Twice As Long To Get Half As Far

Shocker ... Big Journalism Makes
Big Dumb Mistake

From today's e-mail, Breitbart's ghosts & ghouls can't determine the difference between recent right-wing target Martha Raddatz & long-term Lame Old Legacy Media punching bag Diane Sawyer. Possibly an occupational hazard; it must be hard to differentiate between bottle-blond newshens when you watch FoxNews to excess.
Ms. Raddatz above.
Gack. We thought it would only be fair to provide a link; they did manage to use the a pic of Ms. Sawyer in the story, but we should've known better than to start reading.
Yep, we're seeing all kinds of dutiful coverage, but as hard as some individual reporters are working, those who control The Narrative will never allow Libya to become one -- not with Their Precious One serving them up the distraction-material they crave, like Big Bird and abortion.
(Big John Nolte's bolding, for no apparent reason.)

Waitaminit! What's this? We're on to something here!! Calling a lying political opponent a liar is like herding Jews into boxcars for a long ride to the east. Exactly like genocide, see?

So, John Nolte, you fucking Nazi, stop this now!
But once again Obama's not challenged, he's simply allowed to get away with saying he told us what he knew when he knew it.

Which is a bald-faced lie.

But because Obama's the Sun God, he's allowed to look into The Face of ABC News and lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.
One "lie" for each of the six million John Nolte killed w/ his bare hands, we guess.
What is especially ironic about Sawyer's rehab job yesterday, is that it's interviews like this that helped to create the Obama debate debacle. Obama's media pals are so desperate to protect Obama and to have him like them, that they never ever challenge their Sun God. Which is why he was a deer in the headlights when faced with a Mitt Romney who challenged, pushed, and pressured like the media's supposed to.
How can we convincingly mock someone who thinks calling Obama "their Sun God" (Because all the Big Bird-loving abortionists allegedly something, something ... But what, exactly?) is the height of mockery?

We'd think it was all a sad joke but for the hateful bitterness.

We Read, You Deride

The only paragraph you need to read from Jonathan Chait reviewing a couple books at The New Republic, essential sentenceclause bolded:
Already the extremism of the party has advanced to such a point that its most fervent elements are identified less by their ideology—which is nearly impossible to distinguish any more from that of the mainstream—than by the degree to which their detachment from reality departs from paranoia as a mere figure of speech and approaches actual, clinical paranoia. “Radical” Republicans believe that Obama has created death panels, may have been secretly born overseas, and is plotting a United Nations invasion. The “mainstream” Republicans believe in goldbuggery and a massive plot by climate scientists, and deny the dramatic rise in income inequality in America.
It hasn't been a question of politics, ideology or even the theocratic lunacy displayed in the item immediately below for some time w/ these people; as Chait suggests, this is psychological. Once being dropped on the head (accidentally or intentionally) at an early age is ruled out, the 10¢ diagnosis would be childhood abuse; home schooling or worse.

Onward Confederate Christian Soldiers

Have you seen this? No, really.
Battle Flag of The Holy Bible.
Have you? Can it be made any clearer that Confederate Jesus is a racist? As are Confederates, the Arkansas GOP & these astounding Arkansas legislators:
After Arkansas Republicans disavowed a book by state representative Jon Hubbard (R-AR) claiming slavery was “a blessing in disguise” for African Americans, Hubbard’s colleague, state Rep. Loy Mauch (R-AR) has been outed by the Arkansas Times for his pro-slavery, pro-Confederacy letters to the editor over the past decade. Mauch’s run for reelection this year is backed by the Arkansas Republican Party.

In letters to the Democrat-Gazette, Mauch vehemently defended slavery and repeatedly suggested Jesus condoned it:
If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity.
His other letters call Abraham Lincoln a Marxist and celebrate the Confederate flag as “a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order.” He also organized a conference in 2004 praising John Wilkes Booth and calling for the removal of an Abraham Lincoln statue. Mauch has been supported mainly by contributions from the Republican Party and other Arkansas candidates. Now, the state GOP is pulling all funds from Mauch, Hubbard and another state legislative candidate, Charlie Fuqua, who wants to expel all Muslims from the country and thinks rebellious children should receive the death penalty.

Though the party committee has cut them off, the three candidates are still receiving support from other Arkansas politicians, including U.S. Reps Steve Womack (R) and Tim Griffin (R). Mauch has also been endorsed by the National Rifle Association and the Arkansas Right to Life PAC.
Beyond denial; right there in, if you'll pardon us, ebony & ivory. (Well, gray & black because it's all about the nuance here.) And so far beyond any possible parody or spoof it has to be true. The nut-picking of Loy Mauch's letters to the editor is not to be missed, don't be satisfied w/ TP's recap. And Rep. Rep. Mauch must've said/done something else inane; this image trotted out by the Arkansas Times & then TP has been in the Just Another Blog &c.™ editorial hard-drive since November 2010. When not-a-theocrat Mauch was elected.

No Work Today

To the best of our limited understanding, today Canadians have the day off to thank Xtopher Columbus, the mythical & possibly Polack sailor, who discovered the New World & thereby gave Canadians the opportunity not to grow up in the third world hell of Ukraine.

That's what we heard, anyway.

Southern Strategy Surprise

Guy at Slate claims no two ways about it, the Republican Party is racist. Institutionally & structurally, like; he doesn't accuse socially tolerant country club types of being Klan members.

Very long. (Skip pg. 1, even.)
And all those poll-analysis geek websites that continuously report vast majorities for the GOP in the South among white voters (far greater than those in the North) somehow can’t see their way to be forthright about why this is.

I’m not saying that the vast majority of Southern whites vote GOP only because of race. But I think Rick Perlstein’s argument, based on careful polling data, suggests that it is a crucial factor that makes an electoral difference.

Let me put it this way. Is it just an accident, a coincidence, that in presidential elections ever since 1964, the core states of the Confederacy—Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina—and their hundred or so electoral votes have been solidly Republican?

Is it any accident that they fly Confederate flags from their statehouse, as in South Carolina, or incorporate Confederate flag symbols into their state flags as in Mississippi and Alabama, or allow them to be flaunted on state-issued license places, even passing laws that declare they must be respected. If you’ve traveled much in the South (as I have), you see them flying too from courthouses, municipal buildings, and other private establishments. If it’s not unconstitutional, it is, frankly, disgusting.
More righteousness follows. Good alliterative adjectives. ("Rancid racist history," for ex.) Fuck the South, as they say.

This may be why Rosenbaum's so irked:
It’s not just an intellectual exercise deciding whether Southern racism is still a factor. The current Supreme Court could rule the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional this term, on the grounds that all states are morally equivalent and history should play no role in assessing their behavior. They would be wrong to do so.
News to us. Is a Tenth Amendment A.G. from the sticks suing to overturn the V.R.A.?

And the Bob Dylan ending (Not kidding.) is a letdown. Who does he think he is, Saul Alinsky?

Actually Alive

There's a line by the Mad Meltz about a thing so awful it cannot be effectively disguised w/ a gallon of dogsweat. That was 40+ yrs. ago; now The Daily Caller is redesigned, but it's not disguising anything.
Someone there must not like Mick.

Addendum: The masochistic could do worse than read The NYT about Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson & his little operation.

We rest our case:
And he gained attention for his trademark bow tie, which he stopped wearing on TV in 2006. “I had no idea how much people hated bow ties,” he said, adding, “It took me 20 years to realize that wearing a bow tie is like wearing a middle finger around your neck.”
In Tucker's case, more like hanging his scrotum around his neck.

Fucking shit we'd like to bash that smug fucking pig right in his bald head. As a four-eyed (& two-headed) freak of wop-a-dago heritage, I say fuck these wop bastard capitalists (Probably fucking Catholics too. What would Jesus say?) to hell & back. When the fuck will our stinking Congress do anything about this? Where's the outrage? When will you slobs wake up & resist? Why do we put up w/ you fucking sheep? What is everybody's fucking problem?


Appears we can outsource ballistic development.
(Good thing considering our original plan involved collecting matchheads & trips to Mexico for fireworks.)

The Full & Exact Quote

Bonus Quote of the Day

"The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth."
-- Arkansas state Rep. Jon Hubbard (R), quoted by the Arkansas Times.

It Was 50 Yrs. Ago Today

Note fifth Beatle, behind Paul.
Fifty years ago today, the world was introduced to the first James Bond movie and the first Beatles single on the same day. Both Dr. No and “Love Me Do” debuted on Oct. 5, 1962.
That's the opening sentence. No idea if it's worth the click, but it's a coincidence alright. Truly the day the boomers hit puberty & The Sixties began?
