    Funny, if a “number of liberal activists” had called for the firing of a conservative over his or her words, it would be branded “censorship disguised as journalism” — but as usual, IOKIYAR.

    It wasn’t the first time Trump aimed his derision at Rove. In late 2011, Trump criticized Rove and former President George W. Bush for providing fertile ground for President Barack Obama’s election after the GOP strategist had voiced concern about a Republican presidential debate that the “Apprentice” star was originally scheduled to moderate.

    February 7, 2013 at 21:38

    Look. I get the Tudor campaign to defame the character of Richard III. I even understand why Shakespeare bought into the propaganda about Richard III and elevated it into art. But why/how did Thomas More buy into and even expand upon the anti-Richard III propaganda? Shouldn’t have have known better, and certainly wasn’t he brave enough to not buy into the “Richard III was a deformed meany” conventional wisdom enforced by the Tudors?

    After all, wasn’t a key beef with Richard III that he dare to notice that there were people in England other than nobles and gentlemen? Wasn’t he the original “liberal fascist”?

    Or maybe I shouldn’t make that allusion lest Jonah Cheesitberg get wind (see what I did there?) of that comparison and start claiming himself to be of the same caliber as Shakespeare?

    When I was a teenager, I think I was both. All the time. Now I am getting into middle age (not quite there yet), so I am no longer quite so hungry and quite so horny, but I am more tired.

    So what do you do if you are a little hungry, a little horny and more than a little tired?

    It would be very bad for someone who is fluent in Russian to mess with these poor bewildered people.

    I also have trouble understanding why Obama needs to send out the Death Squads when he can just use Drones TO RAIN DEATH FROM ABOVE. Perhaps if I were more insane than mildly neurotic.

    While I would generally consider myself a liberal, I have flirted with Samuel Johnson-style Toryism and even with Jacobitism (although I am no Cavalier). I haven’t considered myself a Yorkist, but I guess now that you mention it, I may be. I guess it all boils down whether or not one thinks this dude should be the king of England? Perhaps he should be, but the picture has a wee bit too much of a Paul Ryan vibe to me. But I guess I should still consider whether or not I should align myself with the Yorkist cause … I certainly am intrigued and wish to subscribe to a newsletter.

    From the reserve-popcorn-levels-dropping-to-critical link:

    The letter added that Bozell is a “legacy” in the conservative movement. “He has devoted his life to the cause of American conservatism as did his father, Brent Bozell II, who wrote ‘Conscience of a Conservative’ for Barry Goldwater. Maybe you’ve heard of Brent’s uncle, Bill Buckley, whose words you misquote and twist as the basis for your organization enough to falsely suggest you know something about him. You may have heard of his other uncle, Jim Buckley, a former U.S. Senator, or Brent’s mother, Patricia Buckley Bozell—both important figures and writers in our conservative movement.”

    1a) — How swiftly Rove squishes Ewik;
    1b) — The lack of effort Rove puts into squishing Ewik;
    1c) — The finality with which Ewik remains squished;

    2a, 2b, 2c) — Ewik’s total surprise at 1a, 1b, 1c;

    Maybe you’ve heard the story so far: Fired LAPD cop goes apeshit. Shoots other cops and a women’s basketball coach. On-duty officers in the greater LA area shoot four innocents driving the same model pickup. The entire city is in paranoid mode after press publishes his 20-page manifesto-slash-suicide note, which includes a paragraph or two complimenting Mr. and Mrs. Obama, Hillary Clinton, and endorsing stricter gun control laws… and pages and pages and pages describing his grievances against his superiors in the LAPD, along with plenty of evidence that he’s manic-depressive.

    What is the right wing reaction? Dorner is a moonbat psychopath driven to murder by leftist propaganda in the mainstream media.

    Oh, and also, the liberal media are covering it up by not publishing the entire manifesto.

    All of a sudden, because we have one shooter who is a) black and b) briefly expresses non-wingnut political views, we are to believe that the correlation between eliminationist ultraconservatism and spree-shootings is entirely negated.

    Forget entirely that this case is fundamentally different in that the murderer is not randomly selecting targets but going after people who he feels have aggrieved him. Forget that the weapons he’s using would not be covered under any proposed gun control laws. Forget that he’s not interested in simply racking up a body count, nor trying to make a name for himself by shocking the country.

    This is going to be one hell of a weekend here in LA.

    (I would think all of us here would be Yorkists, as any right-thinking person would be, as long as you generally ignore any Yorkist monarch who wasn’t Richard III. As to your question about what the hell Sir Thomas was up to with his History, the only thing I can say is that the Richard III board on which I have spent the majority of the past week and a half takes it up regularly as a perplexing and possibly insoluble conundrum. He may have been inveighing against tyranny and couldn’t use Henry VII as his real example; he may have been a hatchet for hire who did enough research to realize the demonization was pure crap; he may have been writing the world’s least amusing satire. My own personal idea is that Henry VIII asked Sir Thomas about it once and he just kept drafting and drafting and drafting, hoping to turn it into useful propaganda, until he finally said the hell with it and wrote Utopia instead.)

I cut the loin and tenderloin portions out, gave the bones to THE CUTEST DOG ON THE PLANET, tossed in a HOT HOT HOT cast iron pan, will finish with maybe some compound butter or maybe poivre the fuck out of them. I dunno, we’ll see.

    I think the theory of Godwinization of political discourse is isomorphic to the Cantor’s theory of transfinite numbers: i.e. there is an isomorphism between aleph_0, aleph_1, etc and Hitler_0, Hitler_1, etc.

    Actually, there are multiple isomorphisms possible. Indeed, you can endow the set of isomorphisms between the transfinite cardinals and the Hitlerian cardinals (and similarly for transfinite ordinals and Hitlerian ordinals) with a mathematical structure such that this set of isomorphisms is itself isomorphic to the political spectrum.

    Yes, I did major in math way back when. And yes I did take logic as well as computability (I skipped set theory though … and I have not taken an actual course in category theory). Why do you ask?

    some tidbits from the latest ‘hooterville indigestion’:

    -a diatribe targeting our ‘LAX-LUSTER CONGRESS’ who ‘DID NOT GIVE CONSENT’ to obama and his ‘constant dictatorial ways’ when he gave six fighter jets to egypt. this particular rant, which began with him noting that our politicians are ‘sick’ ends thusly:

    ‘…how much of Obama dictatorship will it take to wake up America?? Remember Nazi Germany, how it started with Hitler gradually taking full charge, having hypnotized the German Army?? Darn right, our own government is becoming SICK. Just think about it!!!.’

    -a ‘guest editorial’ by one Clash Daly who passes along all the usual ‘these countries passed gun control and look what happened to all these poor unarmed people’ crap featuring, of course, the jews and political dissidents, etc. and where i found this surprising factoid:

    ‘During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!’

    also, too…’SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWIZTERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! IT’S A NO BRAINER!’

    it ends with: ‘You’re not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people.’

    -’Letter to the Editor:

    How do we justify soft core porn as National Family Entertainment for our Superbowl Half Time Show? I don’t understand. Thank You.’

    -obama is a muslim because yahoo news item that says that the tea party says the debate continues over the claim that obama’s wedding ring is inscribed with the muslim declaration of faith because some staffers of a religious wingnut in jordan saw a picture of obama wearing the ring BEFORE he married michelle and a guy in amman said, yes that is the shahada…

    I didn’t go to an Ivy, but I used to go to Harvard-sponsored events a lot and ride the 66 bus, so I know of whom I speak. (Not implying that Winklevii would be riding the 66 bus. That was more for those one level down on the social chain, those fratty jocks who dressed like gay guys… double take… triple take… okay, just another HU Athletics asshole.)

    One might ask if the gay guys were dressing like Harvard jocks, but these are Boston gays we’re talking about, so I’m pretty sure that’s unpossible, but some of the younger more impressionable ones might have taken strong hints from the A&F catalog back in the day. There also used to be an A&F store in Hahvahd Squeyah, so syncronicity! or something, it was a sort of thing: I can’t recall the technical term for a store that LOSES MONEY ON PURPOSE FOR GREAT JUSTICE brand prestige, but it closed in the Great Recession or maybe even before, lolololol. Just their karma for pissing on the grave of the old, funky Harvard Sq. (Tufts students rejoice.)

    In my neck of Queens, it’s still sleet. The gas lines are already starting up, though. I think going forward we’ll need to just start gas rationing before every storm.

    But we’re all home, safe and warm at Schloss DAS. Too warm, in fact: as with many apartment buildings, the concept of a thermostat is beyond the ken of our management. So it’s either keep our radiator off or keep it on until it gets so hot we have to turn it off until it gets too cold.

    it occurs to me that letter-writer may be asking for help in justifying soft core porn as national family entertainment…if i were a bit deviouser and was not worried about job security, i would offer her some ways in which she could justify such a display…although, with the crack editorial staff at the hooterville indigestion, i bet a clever funny made up name and location would pass their muster…these are, after all, the people who gave us the front page headline about the re-opening of the pubic library, the filet mignon smothered in crap dinner special and the hooterville swimming poop story…

    I was recently introduced to duck confit for the first time, and I must say it was pretty damn amazing. But I really think you should serve it over the greens — serving it over some shit won’t really do the duck justice.

    Also, too: I left a more detailed accounting of the local idiot glibertarian I mentioned a couple threads back at my place. [/whore]

    Spearhafoc is evidently not aware of all internet traditions. Note that in the original there was a troll (“The Fool”) that had made some particularly ridiculous suggestions regarding how to satisfy a woman. His posts got deleted (and for a long time you couldn’t actually type “fool” in a comments box here), but if you search that page for “backstroke” you’ll see enough quoted comments to figure out what was going on.

    Holy shit! Check out George W. Bush’s paintings.

    The paintings demonstrate a command of line and color that is rarely seen in the modern-day “art” world. Former President George W. Bush appears to be influenced by such painters as Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet. The portraits also clearly capture the personality of their subject.

    As an artist myself, I’m feeling a real Salieri-in-Amadeus moment here.

I have several other food-things going on just now so the braising isn’t going to happen right away.

And like an episode of This Is Your Life (which none of you are old enough to remember), come the voices of the past: Gary Rupperts fake and real (assuming the distinction means anything), Shoelimpy, and an invocation of the Fuching Ferrets. What? No Pastor Swank?

    Looked at that “Karl Rove aide an enemy of Truth/Bozell” article, and glanced over the list of signatories. Due to someone’s inability to master either Word, email, or web writing, it appeared to contain this little gem:

    Tea Party Patriots
    …….
    Austin Ruse
    President
    Catholic Family & Human

    And yes, as a Tea Partier he’s probably right to be proud to be human.
