Walter Who?




Posted at 23:52 by Tintin

Before getting into the meat of this post about the batshittery from Stanley Kurtz on the Obama-Ayers connection, I can’t resist commenting that Kurtz sounds exactly like Big Gay Al, which may explain much more than we want to know about Kurtz’s unflagging crusade against teh gays:

Now that we have that out of way, let’s talk about Big Gay Stanley’s batshittery on the Obama-Ayers connection. As you probably know, Stanley’s been running around, telling anyone who would listen, that Obama and Ayers were best buds, that Obama’s political philosophy is therefore absolutely identical to Ayers’s philosophy, and that if we elect Obama, the first thing he’ll do in office is try to blow up the Pentagon.

The basis for this nonsense is the Obama was on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and Bill Ayers was involved in a group that organized the Chicago Challenge and that provided advice and recommendations to the Challenge. So, since being on the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge makes you a terrorist, let’s see who some of the other terrorists on that Board were. Here’s a list of the Board members from the group’s 1998 IRS Form 990.

First we have Edward Bottum, who was head of a Chase Franklin, a venture capital firm, as well as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Underwriters Laboratories. And, probably to throw the FBI off the track of his terrorist leanings, he made all of his political contributions to Republicans.

Then there is John W. McCarter, Jr., who is President of a noted terrorist front organization, The Field Museum of Chicago.

And don’t forget the philanthropist Nancy Searle, who also has cleverly concealed her terrorist leanings by contributing to Republicans.

Best of all, another Board member is Scott C. Smith, President and Publisher of the Chicago Tribune, which still openly advocates blowing up public monuments and gives recipes for Molotov cocktails in its “Food and Drink” section. Scott gives money to Republican candidates hoping to embarrass them by his connections with Bill Ayers.

Finally, Kurtz and all the other wingnuts screaming about this seem to have forgotten who Walter Annenberg, the guy who started this whole thing, was. To call him a fervent Republican and best buddies with Tricky Dick Nixon and St. Ronnie Reagan is an understatement. Actually, the most damning thing about Obama’s connection to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge is, well, Annenberg himself, but we aren’t going to hear that from Big Gay Stanley and friends.

    The dailies concede that the bedrock upon which Walter built his fortune was cleared by a tax-evading father, Moses; that the son dodged a trip to the slammer with Dad via a plea bargain; that Walter punished his political and personal enemies with his publishing empire; and that he ingratiated himself with his soul mate, the odious Richard Nixon. But in skimming only the surface scum of his life, these obituaries neglect the fetid undercurrents and tidal filth of his complete life. The ugly arc of Annenberg’s life rivals that of fellow press baron William Randolph Hearst or even his fictional stand-in, Charles Foster Kane. It’s a life that proves that you can earn polite notices in death no matter how you lived if you give away a billion dollars to the right places before you croak.

    Now that’s quality writing.

    so in attempting to come up with a witty comment, I went to the Big Gay Al wikipedia page, which included this as the final sentence.

    “As Big Gay Al is used as a gay stereotype, it’s only meant as a joke, and is mostly used to stand up for gay rights.”

    I can’t come up with anything funnier than that.

    And the Chicago Tribune was once owned by anarcho-syndicalist and LSD advocate Robert McCormick, who mated with Eleanor Roosevelt to father Pol Pot and Che Guevara. Pol Pot is Bill Ayers’ maternal homosexual grandfather.

    She’s a fat woman who really, really needs to enjoy the pleasures of mutual physical gratification. Just to enter the world the rest of us live in.

    She’s your standard Catholic chickenshit. Hiding behind her quasi-virginity to make a moronic case that 80% of America know is insane.

    K-Lo hides behind her Mitt-love precisely because she knows it will never be fulfilled; it is “safe” and so unrealistic it gets mostly laughs from the normal among us.

    She is the worst of our angels. And she can go fuck herself, which, if she properly fantasizes about Mitt, would be a step up from her current monosexuality, assuming she has the metaphorical balls.

    I’m happy she’s the “editor” of a nationally “respected” conservative rag, since all she does is get votes for Barack.

    She is a truly horrible human being, and she deserves all the mockery she gets.

    This Bush-Cheney Attacking
    From Al Gore is reckless. During the last eight years, we were attacked, and that came to us in part because of the recklessness of the Clinton-Gore years.

    1) Bush ignored the warnings he was given, because they weren’t all about invading Iraq. (“You’ve covered you ass, now.”)

    2) I recall some reckless attacking of Clinton while he was President. Wag the Dog, anyone?

    He gave his life for his son. Maybe you should look at your own father…
    And Walter, bless his heart, in the time before freeporn was everywhere, gave teenagers years of mastubatory pleasure (who can forget that 1970 17 cover with the sizzling Shelly Hack or the ’68 TV Guide cover of the vivaciously boneable Ann Margaret fap fap fap)

    The story there is really how Obama navigated a snake-pit where people literally wind up dead and did it making the power players accomodate him instead of the other way around for the most part. The problem is it doesn’t fit in a sound bite, and it requires explaining a long, sordid, tale of Illinois politics that is going to make Washington sound like Candyland.

    I’d be curious to read about that at length at some point – I suspected that was the case, and it’s given me some hope that if Obama could handle that, he can handle anything the Redoublechins could throw at him. I think the Pubbies have gotten a bit complacent, having only Vichy Dems “opposing” them for so long.

    well, it may be sappy, but it’s really very simple. Obama really, really had to pull himself up by himself; Gore and Kerry were both born in privilege. Obama is a lot more like Bill in that regard. The stupid Mccain trickery is nothing compared to what he had to come through.

    Stanley Kurtz says:

    To see the mechanism of our heterosexuality taboo at work, imagine a world in which consensual adult heterosexuality was legal. Once we see or hear of couples — even a relatively small number — who engage in legal, consensual, adult heterosexual relationships, the whole idea of heterosexual relationships with minors becomes thinkable. Preventing heterosexual relationships with minors from becoming thinkable is the purpose of the taboo.

    All sex must be forbidden! Because if teh sex is OK, than obviously people will want sex with children and animals! Because I infer that from . . . . It’s obvious that . . . . Who can deny the musky, delicious sensual, pheromonally irresistible appeal of the nohuman and non-adult to the totally normal heterosexual like me?
