You think that's a joke, but it explains everything.

Actually, it's not a dartboard. It's a computer program - the same one that runs the Al-bot. The entire Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is actually a couple of nerds in Iowa. If we can get these guys laid, we can change the course of history.

And finally, just how paranoid do you have to be to believe that the UN (or, as they have it, the "Un") is coming to take away your right to gun down your neighbor when his dog poops on your lawn?

Is this the same UN that can't find its ass with two hands? What's with this thing of being completely afraid of something that is simultaneously inept and corrupt and stupid?

Actually, scratch that - that describes my attitude toward the GOP just as well.

Don't forget Ramesh Ponnuru's upcoming 'The Party of Death: Democratic Party ..&c'.

No. That would be the UN that can't find its ass WITH THE BIG BLACK HELICOPTERS PARKED JUST ACROSS THE CANADIAN BORDER! Spittle fleck, full stop.

Maybe Mr. LaPierre's is just confused about the difference between his weapon and his gun; maybe these titles would be more appropriate...

The Un's Guns -- Globalization's Threat to Everyman's Gun

Un Gun Lust -- Moral Decay, Sovereignty, and the Demise of the Modern Nation State

Where's global warming on the list?

That's a crock of shit too...

And what about the Endangered Species List with its snail darters?

Jesus fucking Christ.

If God had meant for there to be snail darters... he'd have put them on the Ark.

mad libs with a short list of words to choose from.

Take this stuff seriously please folks. I keep running into otherwise fairly smart folk who are swept up in this storm of right wing nonsense.

People who are skeptical of many things, but they they watch FOX, where the talking heads sound more direct, more like regular people, they believe FOX is honest.

All these lies, repeated and repeated over and over actually do twist the perspective of many, many, many Americans who would otherwise be shocked at whats really going on!

This is not a joke. The bullshit factory of the right wing media really works.

Wayne LaPierre is clearly not motivated by any sense of responsiblity, compassion, or mercy for the Rusty Shacklefords of the world.

Jonathan Chait brags about how much he hates GW Bush.

Don't believe it? Google "Jonathan + Chait + hatred". This guy wants everybody to know how much he hates Bush.

Only Bush-haters like Kevin Drum would admire the kind of stuff Chait puts out.

Dang, conservatives sure went for the Chinese menu approach to national security so the same MO for publishing is no surprise.

I just wish I could get my hands on some of that UN blue cash. Remember? New year's 2000, when they were supposed to stage a fake terror attack in Time's Square as an excuse to bring panic, and call in UN troops to take over the US? Warehouses full of pallets and pallets of blue money to use to replace American Dollars when the economy collapsed?

Whatever happened to all that UN money?

Obviously, they painted it green and sent it to Iraq.

Bush haters? I'm not a Bush hater! I'm a Bush lover!! I will LOVE seeing him lying in the middle of the twisted wreckage of his @#%$%#! bicycle, at the bottom of a taaallll cliff.

As to the books, you don't know how hard it is to write them, since you can't use polysyllabic words or sentences of more than five simple words.

I was sure the link was going to go to Liberalism Kills Kids.

Only Bush-haters like Kevin Drum would admire the kind of stuff Chait puts out.

But Chait hates Bush with such panache. Whereas I just spit blood when I think about the little fucker.

Oh you forgot Liberalism is a Mental Disorder by Michael (Weeeener) Savage. (who says that Bush is the worst Liberal president this nation has ever seen).

What was that about the French plot to sodomize us with our own guns?

Posted by: bad Jim on March 31, 2006 at 11:44 PM | PERMALINK

How do you sodomize someone with their own gums?

What?

Oh, sorry, nevermind.

Kevin, you think that is bad? Dont venture over to Joseph Farahs Worldnetdaily.com then, where he offers such literary chestnuts as Help, Mom There Are Liberals Under My Bed, proving once and for all, that conservatism is a form of insanity.
