Choking the Ruberry Chicken




Posted at 18:29 by Tintin
John Ruberry

ABOVE: John Ruberry

The Pajama Medias superstar and not-so-swift “Marathon Pundit,” a/k/a John Ruberry, engages in a little not-so-swift-boating of Barack Obama:

Now a (gasp!) tenured education professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago, [Bill Ayers is] a campaign issue for Barack Obama.

Ayers was once a member of Weather Underground, an anti-war group that bombed public buildings to protest the War in Vietnam.

So what is the connection between Obama and Ayers that has Ruberry piddling in his pundit pants? Is Ayers a member of Obama’s campaign? Has Obama publicly praised Ayers and claimed him as a dear friend? Has he had sex with Ayers in a bathroom stall? Did they share a toothbrush? Er, no:

Ayers is The Woods Fund board chairman, and a young state senator, who like Ayers is living in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, is a fellow board member–that person of course is Barack Obama.

Obama and Ayers were on the Woods Fund board between 1999 and 2002. Other notable terrorist-sympathizers that have served on the Board of the Woods Fund include senior officers from UBS, BP and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, as well as the President of McCormack Theological Seminary, all of whom I guess must now renounce all participation in politics, apologize for their lapses of judgment, and just go into hiding forever.

What’s next? Obama was seen speaking to someone who is a next door neighbor to someone who went to school with Ted Kaczynski? I think Ruberry has spent too much time playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

    The fact is, you liberals will never admit, but he nailed it. Here is proof that Barack Osama Hussein is a muslim terrorist sympathizer who hates USA, worked with terrorists, and will sell out USA as soon as he is elected (or more likely, selected, by the liberal media and the corrupt Dem estabishment of voter fraud and illegal and dead voters), this is why patriots need to be ready for such an event and not accept the destruction of our republic. Be worried.

    So this means Rudi G. is a coke dealer and M.C. Cain likes to have anonymous sex in public toilets. OK.

    And we hardly need to mention the man who was governor of the state that unleashed the satanic horrors of Gay Marriage on the world causing civilization to crumble and dogs and cats to live together.

    Works for me.

    Not to defend these wingnuts, but these idiots have to write about something and their readers love conspiracies. Wingnut’s love talking about “connections” and allowing their readers to “draw the right conclusion” from whatever bile it is they’ve managed to cough up during the night.

    Once they’re out of office they’ll go back to being the mostly harmless but annoying cranks they’ve historically been.

    The real challenge is going to trying to clean up the media that has been wallowing in this filth for so long. That’s much tougher.

    They got nothin’. Good,it’s about time. They’re also trying to float the stealth muslim thing ,Coulter’s out there with her “B.Hussein Obama”schtick again.

    The problem for the wingnuts this time is all they have is the tactics they used on Bill Clinton. For some reason,they’ve deluded themselves into thinking that this same exact template is going to continue working for them no matter who the Democratic candidate is. They lack imagination and creativity,so it’s bound to come back and bite them eventually.

    Don’t joke about Teddy Kaczynski, it’ll give them ideas. He was a postdoc at Northwestern (in ILLINOIS, Obama’s HOME STATE). He mailed a letter bomb to UIC.

    P.S.: As a mathematician, it is clearly my duty to apologize for Kaczynski’s actions, as well as for those of Ahmed Chalabi. Still, I won’t. Sue me.

    Oh, sure. Goof on an obscure wingnut for buying off on the Obama-supports-terrorism meme when Bloomberg News is promoting the very same story. I guarantee Bloomberg News has a far bigger audience than Marathon Pundit.

    For some really unhinged ranting about Obama supporting terrorism, I suggest Larry Johnson’s blog, No Quarter. Johnson, formerly with the CIA, is a frequent contributor to Josh Marshall’s TPM Cafe.

    “As Democrats and Independents weigh who they want to run against John McCain in the fall, answer this question. Can you support a candidate who is friends with terrorists? Can you support a candidate who takes money from terrorists? Well, if Obama is your man you have some problems…”

    I used to live in Hyde Park and if you were involved in progressive politics there you crossed paths with Bill Ayres. He knew everybody and had a hand in almost everything.

    Which was fine. He’s a guy with tons of energy and commitment who did some really stupid things 35 years ago. He served his time, there’s no lifetime ban from civilized society. It’s really lowered my opinion of Ben Smith that he’s promoting this stuff.

    I hope this is the “best” they’ve got on Obama, because it isn’t much.

    It certainly fits their Orwellian template of the future though, where you must be scrupulously careful of who you associate with or else you’ll end up in a re-education camp a la Khmer Rouge. They see their plans and ideas as the ultimate in patriotism that will save the republic from a fate worse than death, just like the Khmer boys did.

    The sad thing is how long it took to bring those bastards to justice; I’m hoping for a faster time table for the Bush criminal gang. Warm up that plane headed for The Hague, we’ve got some cargo!

    McCain has a lot of weaknesses; it’s why the conservatives are so frightened and shrill. The Christianists wanted Huckabee, the racists don’t like his immigration views, the money people don’t like his view on campaign reform. That leaves the security nuts. The Right Wing Noise Machine has been attacking him for weeks, and now face loss of power and an angry man’s revenge if McCain is elected. Plus the shadier parts of his past–if the Democratic Party can’t exploit these fault lines they are too weak to exist.

    Don’t be so sure of that. The far right wing may very well step up their campaign of domestic terrorism again. The ‘militia’ and ‘patriot’ movements have been unheard from for the past decade, but if a Democrat wins the presidency they could start to get violent again.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s Obama or Clinton. This election is going to bring out the worst sort of codeword, dogwhistle campaign attacks you can imagine. It doesn’t matter if its the racists, the women haters (some of the worst of whom are democrats), the clintonly deranged or the worst of the far right theocratic christianist authoritarian scum, this here general election campaign is very likely to be the ugliest in american history.

    And speaking of ugly elections, think about Pakistan. Musharraf KNOWS he has to rig the election, because the outcome of fair voting is a foregone conclusion. But exactly BECAUSE the outcome is so clear, any vote-rigging he does will be obvious to everyone.

    So, does he want to be removed by a hostile parliament or by violent revolution and a possible breakup of the country? There’s no doubt what will happen. Musharraf’s party will win by at least ten-fifteen percent – a massive fraud. And then the blood will begin to spill in earnest…

    Some mornings I get up and the sun is shining. The coffee’s already brewing and it smells great. It’s a weekend and I don’t have more than a few hours of work that absolutely has to get done so I’m looking forward to some pleasure reading, some music, some carefully prepared food. On such days I sometimes try to imagine that the world is a better place than it is.

    I never make it all the way to noon, though.

    Hmm, good point. But how does it work, status wise? Does the person of higher status get to use HIS left hand, so that the person of lessor status has to make contact with the Higher One’s unclean hand? Can we analyze those photos of Bush n’ Bandar to see whether Bush is Bandar’s unclean-handholder? (or do we already know the answer?)

    The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a crisis of confidence. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will.

I’m pretty sure the chubby little buck toothed motherfucker continues to have trouble learning to control his mouth, in spite of the fact that he can’t back up his bullshit to sixth grade girls.

    Now, while these perfectly reasonable assumptions do give me a certain amount of pleasure, I would infinitely prefer it if the nasty little asshole wasn’t in my life at all.

    Separated at Birth? Is MJ Harper Johan Goldberg’s sibling?

    Mark Liberman at the Blog “Language Log” reviews a book which postulates that the French language evolved FROM ENGLISH, and what we consider the original Latin is just a “shorthand” of Italian, developed in AD 400 or thereabouts:

    M.J. Harper’s “The Secret History of the English Language”.

    ” . . . Harper finds the idea that Latin developed into the modern Romance languages too implausible to believe.

    Fortunately, there’s a much more reasonable explanation that meets all the facts: Latin is not a natural language. When written, Latin takes up approximately half the space of written Italian or written French (or written English, German, or any natural European language). Since Latin appears to have come into existence in the first half of the first millennium BC, which was the time when alphabets were first spreading through the Mediterranean basin, it seems a reasonable working hypothesis to assume that Latin was originally a shorthand compiled by Italian speakers for the purposes of written (confidential? commercial?) communication.

    So the history, according to Harper, is that English developed into French, which developed into Provençal, which developed into Italian; and then at some point, say around 400 B.C., some Italian merchants developed Latin as a form of shorthand. “

    Hey, frankly, I think our trolls are little ass wiping weenies, but I still think it’s not appropriate for them to talk about getting guns and shooting people. Particularly in the wake of someone doing just that at NIU.

    If Chris St. James had said something like he posted while enrolled at a school, he’d have been expelled. If he’s said it at work, he’d be sent to HR. If he’s said it in an airport, he’d be hustled down to security. If he’d said it in a restaurant, the staff would have called 911. Reasonable people don’t say shit like that.

    The blurb from Amazon certainly reads as if it were originally written for LibFascism, and had a few words changed:

    In a hugely enjoyable read, not to mention gloriously corrosive prose, M.J. Harper slashes and burns through the whole of accepted academic thought about the history of the English language. According to Harper: The English language does not derive from an Anglo-Saxon language. French, Italian, and Spanish did not descend from Latin. Middle English is a wholly imaginary language created by well-meaning but deluded academics. Most of the entries in the Oxford English Dictionary are wrong. And that’s just the beginning. Part revisionist history, part treatise on the origins of the English language, and part impassioned argument against academia, The Secret History of the English Language is essential reading for language lovers, history buffs, Anglophiles, and anyone who has ever thought twice about what they’ve learned in school.

    So the history, according to Harper, is that English developed into French, which developed into Provençal, which developed into Italian; and then at some point, say around 400 B.C., some Italian merchants developed Latin as a form of shorthand. “

    Yeah, because we’ve seen all those 3,000 year old English manuscripts floating around. What the Hell is he trying to prove? That Jesus didn’t speak Aramaic, but instead spoke flowery Elizabethan English, just like the KJV?

    Senator Turnipseed, R- Hayseed Hollow, stood up in the chamber to denounce this proposal.

    So I was going to make a spicy chicken and wild mushroom pita for lunch. I sauteed some chicken with cayenne, curry powder and a little cumin with the wild mushrooms. I was going to go with shredded lettuce and diced tomato with a garlic Vinaigrette. While the chicken and mushrooms were in the pan, I discovered the pita bread was moldy. Shit. But not a serious problem. Turned ‘em into quesadillas with shredded cheese, diced peppers and the tomato, they were really good served with sour cream and avocado slices.

    Just to compound matters, I just took a loaf of banana nut bread out of the oven. Smells really good in here.

    Earlier this afternoon I cleaned the shower. I find that to be an interesting household task. While I will frequently perform household maintenance tasks naked, cleaning the shower is the only task where that is a requirement. Contrarian that I am, I considered a bathing suit. But that would be truly silly.

    Pastor Swank via JanusNode Markov chain:

    The Republican candidates have remained firm in their allegiance to biblical ethics by staying true to pro-life. Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Hillarys to find still another clergyman duped enough to permit a religious renegade to mount the pulpit, give forth anti-Bible material and then performs a wedding ceremony for a godless America. Their deity is not imagined. It has its basis in reality, unfortunately. We have been slung, not by our own self-driven, stubborn children. (5) Having done our best as parents, we can at least have the clean conscience by which he can go right or wrong. No one can make another person do anything, finally, no matter how disheveled D.C.

Or a flower. Or a little man on a bicycle, depending on the age of the sponge) that I use to wash meself wid’. Makes it easy, and no bathing suit required.

    I’m all into minimal cleaning: I find that some things I can do whenever I’m on the spot, as a habit, and that means less actual, formal, cleaning work. Got a fluffy cloth to wipe the basin after I brush me teef. Got a dust mop for a 4-minute swoop around the floors.

    Lemuel Pitkin tells us that Ayers has done his time and shouldn’t be banned from civilization. But Ayers recently said, “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” Ayers showed up smirking on the cover of the Chicago Tribune Magazine the week of September 11, 2001, the hateful face of leftist violence grinning at us all.

    If I ever saw him on the street, I’d like to punch him in the face.

    George Bush: “I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma because there is — my point is, there’s a strong will for democracy.”

    Barbara Bush: “But why should we hear about body bags, and deaths, and how many, what day it’s gonna happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Or, I mean, it’s not relevant. So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?”

    Barbara Bush: “Almost everyone I’ve talked to says, ‘We’re going to move to Houston’… which is sort of scary, they all want to stay in Texas… And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this — this is working very well for them.”

    the fact is that Barack Obama’s campaign is going to spiral the toilet after revelations that he plagirizes speeches, and after he loses Wisconsin.

    There’s a reason why Obama is running from debates.

    John McCain is a man of character who refused to take the easy way out of Vietnam when the VC offered him release before his fellow POWs.

    Barack Obama is closer to a scumbag like Jane Fonda (the traitor who visited the Hanoi Hilton) than he is to John McCain.

    As well, the fact is that Hillary is now running to Obama’s left on a lot of issues, and Democrats will fall for her.

    Obama is the most liberal Senator in America (more liberal than Ted Kennedy and Socialist Bernie Sanders) and he’s a sitting duck for us against moderate-conservative John McCain.

    Obama is an untested rookie, and America knows better than to put such rookies in the White House after Jimmy Carter’s presidency.

    Plus, Obama exposed himself as a shady untrustworthy liar by going back on his pledge to take taxpayer welfare (aka public financing)

    But he is the first liberal democrat to turn down an opportunity at welfare.

    Gary,

    I take it you were one of the GOP-ers crowing about how “we were going to kick Democratic ass” in 2006 too.

    Look at your party, it is in shambles. GOP presidential hearththrobs like Santorum and george Macaca Allen are election casualties. Tom Delay awaits indictment. Newt Gingrich is probably banging a new secretary who’s taking stenography for his new book about the wonders of green technology.

    Stalwart GOP-ers like Bob Ney and Duke Cunningham are newly minted felons.

    Your media heroes are a amalgam of freaks and perverts. Limbaugh is a thrice married and childless oxycontin junkie who vacations in the Dominican Republic with suitcases full of Vi*gra, grand dames of the self-procliamed ‘family values’ party are single and childless misanthropes like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham.

    Even your dear leader who was fond of ignoring African-Americans, except the two affirmative action hires of Rice and Powell, is now reduced to running around Africa and getting accolades for what would clearly be described by you and your fellow travelers as a bunch of feel good welfarism.

    The US economy is in shambles, the US military mired in Afghanistan, Iraq and the neo-cons are hoping to add Iran and Syria into the mix. Meanwhile Russia and China are laughing loudly. Russia looking at the US in the same way we looked at the Soviet Union in their daying days(Afghanistan played a big role in their demise too) and China is looking at America the way America looked at the Soviet Union too. China will be able to compete with our space race because they have all of our money. What was it Mao said about the the US selling the rope with which tio hang itself.

    There is a whole new world out there Gary and a new younger generation will be hearing the name George W. Bush with the same contempt that you and your ilk used to spit out the name Jimmy Carter.

    America is a weaker place because of Bushism and 30 yeers of conservative rule.

    The most common characteristic of Loyalist [British sympathizers] thought was its conservatism. Nearly all Loyalists of any consequence believed in the political status quo. Undoubtedly, this conservatism stemmed in part from a desire to preserve political power, but Loyalists also believed that any disruption of the traditional political arrangement was hazardous to the body politic. Furthermore, Loyalists tied their commitment to the status quo to their belief in aristocracy and deference….

    Yet during the Revolutionary War, many of them suffered persecution at the hands of the revolutionaries. Each state governments passed a Test Act….[Anyone] who refused the oath could face several penalties, including imprisonment, disenfranchisement, additional taxes, land confiscation, and banishment. In November 1777, the Continental Congress recommended that the states confiscate Loyalists’ property… Also, by 1777 most states had passed legislation that declared loyalism a treasonous act….[S]ome executions occurred.”

    FillB – the pride of the Left is, of course, Ayers. I’ve hit a nerve, because I’ve exposed you people for what you are.

    The charge of hypocricy seems to hit home the most. You snark about harmless pudgy campus libertarians, and you praise vicious aggressive campus lefties. I never understood how people like Ayers – and Ward Churchill – could suck off the public tit and live such weak sheltered lives while screeching their rage at the very people that support them. Narcissism may be even more accurate a term for them – a black, empty, hate filled narcissism. There is little of politics remaining in the radical Left, just a frigid idiotic selfishness made happy only by the smashing of whatever anyone else has made.

    That’s all it takes, and the hypocricy of the Left comes into full relief. One smirking, rich, tenured, Professor is all it takes to examine the American Left; one pampered rich boy who set bombs for other Americans to “fight the power” and is now a hero of the Left, who got away with his crimes and now leers his sickening serpent’s smile on the cover of our magazines.

    Come, wipe those tears away and still your trembling chins. I’ll hit you again and again on this subject as much as I like, and no amount of “what about” -ery is going to bail you out.

    Houseboy–

    Let me introduce you to our presidents new best friend, President Karimov of Uzbekistan.

    President Karimov government was awarded $500m in aid from the Bush administration in 2002. The SNB (Uzbekistan’s security service) received $79m of this sum.

    The U.S. State Department web site states “Uzbekistan is not a democracy and does not have a free press. Many opponents of the government have fled, and others have been arrested.” and “The police force and the intelligence service use torture as a routine investigation technique.”

    Nice friends you rightists have. Karimov had his enemies boiled alive.

    Seven months before Sept. 11, 2001, the State Department issued a human rights report on Uzbekistan. It was a litany of horrors.

    The police repeatedly tortured prisoners, State Department officials wrote, noting that the most common techniques were “beating, often with blunt weapons, and asphyxiation with a gas mask.” Separately, international human rights groups had reported that torture in Uzbek jails included boiling of body parts, using electroshock on genitals and plucking off fingernails and toenails with pliers. Two prisoners were boiled to death, the groups reported. The February 2001 State Department report stated bluntly: “Uzbekistan is an authoritarian state with limited civil rights.”

    Immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks, however, the Bush administration turned to Uzbekistan as a partner in the global fight against terrorism. The nation, a former Soviet republic in Central Asia, granted the United States the use of a military base for fighting the Taliban across the border in Afghanistan. President Bush welcomed Uzbek President Islam Karimov to the White House, and the United States has given Uzbekistan more than $500 million for border control and other security measures.

    Now there is increasing evidence that the United States has sent terror suspects to Uzbekistan for detention and interrogation, even as Uzbekistan’s treatment of its own prisoners continues to earn it admonishments from around the world, including from the State Department.

    Disgusting. And you support this man.

    Skimming through the earlier comments, I gather that this Ayers guy can leer like a serpent, but at the same time he’s sitting on a perch, preening his plumage. He sounds like the latest avatar of Quetzalcoatl.
    I wonder what Ayer did to earn the undying, single-minded enmity of Hypocritical Left (since he doesn’t seem to have committed many crimes that the US govt. actually bothered to charge him for). Parked his car in the wrong place, perhaps.

    Something about Hypocritical Left’s style is familiar. Here’s a comment from gotcha, from a thread back in November:

    I taste hypocrisy when I visit this cesspool. Amid all your girlie whining about the Andy Stephenson incident, you conveniently forget …

    Which is meaningful because newspaper magazines are not prepared ahead of time.

    If I ever saw him on the street, I’d like to punch him in the face.

    Susan,

    Oh, but you do.

    This one stings, because you know how pernicious his existence is to the Left’s thin facade of respectability. Ayers is a sneering bile-filled bigot, grown fat and content atop the university food chain. What better example to point out the stinking hypocricy and elitist hatred of America’s professors than Mr Weather Underground himself, Bill Ayers. A criminal who never comes to justice, a vile terrorist who not only doesn’t repent, but throws his acts cynically in our faces – that is exactly what people have in mind when they think of the Left that has taken over American higher education.

    I think you care very deeply about this, Susan.

    Ah, the flashback kid checks in! You certainly do seem like an asswipe, Mikey, but I love you anyway. You have a nice big hard on for Ayers, don’t you?

    Well, you are right that Henry Kissinger has never been brought to justice, and that he was appointed to Georgetown University’s Center for Strategic and International Studies, and served as the Chancellor of the College of William and Mary – but most people wouldn’t call him a leftist

    You want to know who I think the real traitors are? Cowardly little chickenshits like you who won’t put their own safety on the line, but have the guts to anonymously call a Vietnam vet “flashback kid”. You are just lucky you have liberals to protect the freedom you shit on.

    Actually, I think YOU care very deeply about this, Hypocritical Loser, but I think it’s personal on your part, so why don’t you go make an appointment with your counselor, and work things out on your own?

  305. mikey said,

    February 19, 2008 at 6:42

    The flashback kid!

    Hee hee. That’s pretty good. I’ll own that.

    Heh heh. Still chuckling.

    See, here’s the thing, dickhead. You have to actually DO something, experience something, hold the line and make some kind of statement, in order to have the opportunity to be a “flashback kid”.

    But here’s a real question. Why doesn’t my service carry any weight with you. Your president didn’t go. Vice prez? Nope. I went. I fought. I came home. Now I know we don’t agree with one another politically, but why would that cause you, the militarist one, to make light of my service?

    An authoritarian grandfather who lived in Chicago lived in constant fear of hatred. He decided to study anti-realist religious theory. In the course of his studies, he met Bob Dylan, at that time very charismatic, who cured the problem with a fierce ornamental tasty protestation. Our little authoritarian grandfather (now egocentric and ageless) started a pig farm instead.

    So the Houseboy has started channelling Davey Horowitz. There’s a surprise. I expect he’ll demand any minute now that Obama distance himself from America’s Most Dangerous Professor.

    I vaguely recall some old sci-fi thing I once saw; maybe it was a Star Trek episode. There was this bizarre alien entity, and it fed on people’s emotions. The Houseboy is basically that sort of alien, I think, though it feeds not on emotions but on attention. May I suggest that we withhold its nourishment and leave it to howl, alone and hungry, in the void?

    When the snark disappears and raw emotion flares on the surface, I know I’ve struck a nerve. The American Left is violent, hypocritical, and narcissistic; Ayers embodies all of these traits, and the faint echo heard here validates my statements.

    Have a good one, children.

    Mikey,

    Glad you like the line – feel free to use it.

    Rather than ask me to genuflect at the feet of your service, why don’t you share what you really feel about Ayers? Now that would be interesting.

  317. g said,

    So what DID Professor Ayers write in the margins of your senior essay, that makes you so upset, HL?

    I have a hypothesis that it’s the same thing that made Rush call the returning vets who spoke out against the latest adventure in Iraq “phony soldiers.”

    They can’t believe that someone who actually was there wouldn’t agree with their POV so those people cannot have possibly experienced war.

    If they stipulate your legitimacy as a veteran, their world view would implode.

  319. mikey said,

    why don’t you share what you really feel about Ayers?

    Hokay.

    Never heard of him. Have no idea who he is or why you’re foaming at the mouth over him. He’s had zero impact on me or my worldview, and to be honest I can’t be assed to look him up on wiki.

    He gets an authoritarian thug like you all spun up, so I give him points for that. Whatever he did in his life, it’s scum like you that are the real threat to america and the freedoms and ideals she represents.

    But you go right ahead and let obscure figures from the distant past raise your blood pressure. I can’t for the life of me see a downside to that…

    Chalk me up as another lifelong liberal (also ex-military, for what it’s worth) who’s never heard of Ayers. Then again, I don’t get mass talking-point emails to tell me what to think or who to hate.

    In the ancient times, ’86 or so, there was a little Mac program simply called “Monkey” that would generate random mouse moves, clicks, and keystrokes – all while showing a little animated icon of a chimpanzee pounding on a Macintosh. It could diddle your system in an amazingly short time.
