“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”

Howard Zinn (1922 - 2010)

While the pwogs mindlessly coo and chirup about their murderous God-Emperor's latest speech, Howard Zinn left this veil of tears last night. Requiescat in pace.

“We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children”
~Howard Zinn
(Update: Alas, a Pwog posts about Zinn's advocacy of collective resistance - which is quite odd as none of these demotard jellyfish would recognize resistance if it set their dumpster on fire.)

(Update: In-between 'look-at-the-wingnut" posts, Diggy has a little footage of Zinn talking about Obama's bank giveaways. Check out the comments for some hi-larious attempts at claiming the poor guy for the demotard party.)

(Update: Holy crap! Shakes-the-Democrat actually pulled her head out of her ass long enough to cut 'n paste an obit. Honest injun! It's between a sub-moronic cartoon she "draws" and some TV show trivia shit.)

Question of the Day

The DGH Question of the Day: "Is Dave Sirota an idiot or just a garden-variety demotard shill?"

Over at Obot Left - Sirota quotes Rhamses I as saying that passing the Health Insurace Give-Away bill would be as beneficial to the DP as passing NAFTA was back during the Golden Clinton Years of Peace and Prosperity, 1994. Sirota claims to be flabbergasted at such a remark, since he's of the opinion that that very thing was responsible for the D's poor congressional showing that year.

Possibly it doesn't occur to Sirota that the D's fund raising increased 30% after they shivved the people with NAFTA, and that's what Rhamses was talking about - anticipating a big ol' Clintonian-style windfall from big pharma and the health insurance corporations. Possibly Sirota doesn't understand that DP elites like Rahm don't actually give a fart in a hurricane about their "base" (ie: jellyfish pwogwessives and their access blogger minders), "democratic values" (whatever that's supposed to be) or winning elections - a fact that has been abundantly obvious for a couple of fucking decades now.

Or, possibly, Sirota's just another lame DP flack with delusions of Beltway grandeur. Your guess is as good as mine.

Peace of the Action

Here's another example of at what real activism looks like. (Thanks Spartacus!)

The Flobots - "Rise"

This one goes out especially to all the spineless do-nothing pwogs who deplore our bloody wars of occupation right up until it's time to vote in another bunch of corporate warmongers. Fuck the lot of you.

Constitutional Convention? Suuuuure.

Obot Left's own 'Bait-n-Switch' Bowers is at it again. The magical pony he's offering this time is a "constitutional convention" which would presumably allow him and his access blogger cronies to re-write said foundational document, no doubt with input from a few of the more reliable bootlicks from the comment section. But wait! There's more...

"Further, even the building threat of what might come out of such a convention could be enough to pressure Congress into real action."

Now, farbeit for me to call into question the reasoning abilities of the Obot Left commentariat - but if any person or group of persons had the kind of clout it would take to get two thirds of both houses (as detailed in a little scrap of parchment called The 5th Amendment) - why in the seven hells would they use that influence to all a constitutional convention? With that kind of clout, Bowers could easily pass a bill renaming the United States of America to 'The United States of Chris Bower's Happy-Funistan' and there would be no one to say him nay.

That; the Obots are buying into this DP shill's fantasy with the fervor of fanatic fundies at a tent stake revival isn't much of a surprise. The only question remaining, what is Bowwow angling to switch for the magical constitutional pony? Given his MO, (the health care debacle, for example) something so grandiose must be the bait for something astonishingly paltry. What could it be? Coffee coupons? A box of steak knives?

Post-eleciton Rationalization Roundup


Alas, a Pwog - "I'm desperate for Our Team to win. But, it doesn't matter who gets elected because Our Team wins either way. But, it's the economy's fault if we don't win. So there!"

Balk the Left - "This loss means Our Team will win big big big in November! Yay Team! Whooooot!"

Diggly-Wiggly - "It's the center-right-left-center-left-right Democrats fault!"

Extreeeeeeem - "God-Emperor Obama is wonderful! The election loss mean's nothing, understand? Nothing! And it's all the stupid idiot dummyhead Massachusetts voters fault anyway!"

Gesundheit - "Oh well. Ho-hum. I'm not worried. Not in the least. First!"

Newspwoggers - "Coakley was an awful candidate, and she ran an awful campaign. That's why it's not so bad, see? And besides, just because I support and campaign and vote for warmongering bloody-handed corporate fucktards doesn't mean I bear any responsibility when they blow toddlers into bloody chunks with cruise missiles. Plus, I can lose weight by eating ice cream! These polls prove it!"

Obot Left - "Coakley was an awful candidate, and she ran an awful campaign. Because, who really cares what her record is. Anyway, here's a couple dozen irrelevant charts to prove it."

Panderdome - "Those stupid stupid voters! They're so fucking stupid! Stupid! Only God-Emperor Obama can save us now!"

Pwogman! - "Coakley was an awful candidate and she, aw fuck! I can't even bring myself to cut-and-paste from the listserv."

Shake-A-Puddin' - "The media is teh awful! Validate my opinion, proles!"

Grampa - "Gud'damn terrists...zzzzzzzz."

Rudy - "Fucking weasel fucking goddamn shit fucking republicans shit fuck BUY MY CD!"

Trouble in Paradise

Don't look now, ladies and Germans, but there's a Gotterdammerung sized storm a brewin' above the caring, nurturing, nauseating cult ashram better know to lovers of the absurd as Shakeytown. What's it about this time? Does it really matter?

No, not really.

Ya see, Shake-A-Puddin's hissyfits run on a schedule more predictable than Old Faithful. If Amtrak ran with such precision and regularity it would have been bought out and disassembled by the oil corporations as a threat to their profit margins. Not that Shakeytown should be any different than any other personality cult. Jonestown had regular loyalty drills (plus better quality kool-aid) and the Branch Davidians had to endure self-pitying diatribes from messiah-wannabe David Koresh not all that different in content from Melissa's weepy/angry missives.

The theme of this one is "we all make mistakes so shut up and love me" which, if I recall correctly, is a repeat from last summer. But I'm too lazy to check and anyway the Drama Queen has already stomped off with many tearful warnings of shutting down threads that don't meet her high standards of fawning adoration. All that's left to do is sweep up the blood and entrails, then comb the ruins and pick out a sampling of the more hilarious bits from the comments section. Like, say:

"I don't believe a presumption of good faith should have to be earned — though of course if it is to be earned, it is surely true that Melissa has..." (Because I have always relied on the kindness of strangers.)

"Disagreements are hurtful when they are(as Melissa said in the post) "engaging in ad hominem attacks (The Green Party, uh, took my shoe!), using silencing tactics (This thread is closed!), jumping to unfounded conclusions about allegedly reprehensible motives (Ralph Nader hates God, The Country and The Holy Democrat Party!!!), or in some other way accusing me of acting in bad faith."

"She takes an incredible amount of vitriol here in her own space and still has the compassion to open her inbox to random strangers on the internet..." (Why, she's just like Saint Damien de Veuster - but without all that annoying leprosy.)

"I hope Melissa has a lovely weekend full of kittehs, Scotsman, naps and snacks." (Kittehs, Scotsmen, Naps and Snacks - the new slogan of the Obama administration.)

"This is HER blog. She is, in fact, at the center of all that happens here and has the scars to prove it." (Like a combination of Narcissus and Sparticus if both were needy hyper-sensitive intarweb dweebs.)

Well, Of Course!

Something I forgot to mention last decade. Just so everybody knows, a few days ago Pander asserted that she is, in fact, The Left.

So, you know, everyone can relax now.

No, I'm not kidding. Obot Pander actually claims, in the middle of a lip-frothing batshit-insane screed against the everything non-democrat party, that she is, in-deedy-do, The Left. Don't believe me?
"Anyway, the point is that I’m The Left"
And not just any left, mind you. She's The Left, ya know? There is no other Left than Pander. Any Left you may think exists to the left of her is a mere fignewton of your imagination. She is - THE LEFT.

Later that same post, Pander goes on to imply that she is a "DFH" (That's "Dirty Fucking Hippy" in Obot speak. Essentially a conservative democrat.) Now, a brief skimming of her blog reveals Pander is a "DFH" much in the same way that she's, say, a Jacobite, a Yihe Tuan or a member of the Grange. But this delusion appears to be fairly widespread amongst the Obot population who earn their Yearly Kos panelist invites by maintaining a thin veneer of populism.

So, to sum up. Obama is Jesus. Amanda Marcotte is The Left.

Any questions?

New Pwogs for Old


Haven't been posting much because, well, fuck, real life happens. Anyroad, please welcome a new pwoggie to the herd, Extreeeeeme Obot!

Extreeeeeme is more than just a blindly Obama worshiping personality cultist Koswhack. Sure, all the usual fear mongering, rationalization, lesser evilism, crackpot realism, mendacity, pettifoggery, simony and antinomianism are there. But, Extreeeeeme has a certain broad clueless quality that other Obots will find hard to match. The sort of je-nai-se-dumb that leads him to write, in a truly pathetic attempt at a hit piece on film producer/political gadfly Jane Hamsher, that Ollie Stone's film Natural Born Killers is a despicable Hollywood glorification of violence and not, as is blindly obvious to anyone who possesses the mental faculties to boil water, an indictment of same.

So, yeah, he's right-out-of-the-packaging new. But I think he's got the potential to be a world class Obot. Or at least more interesting than Big 'Tard.
