The Center Cannot Hold!

I don't normally bother with the GOS because, well, it's just too fucking easy to be much fun. But this classic GBCW by DNC media shill Keith Olberman is too good to pass up:

"You want Cheerleaders? Hire the Buffalo Jills. You want diaries with conspiracy theories, go nuts. If you want this site the way it was even a year ago, let me know and I'll be back."

Oh! Teh Drama! Could it be even the Obots of Ko$ have finally at long last gotten sick of Olberman's faux-outrage schtick? Could the Hopey-Changey Sparkle Pony crowd have tumbled to Olberman & Maddow's stunningly obvious coordination with their White House masters and betters?

Well, probably not.

First you're cannon fodder...

Trust the democrat doyenne of merit-school mandarins to blindly jump on the Cannonfodder Recruitment Act of 2010 bandwagon:

"This story from DKos yesterday just makes my heart hurt:

Eric’s story underscores the need for Congress to pass the DREAM Act immediately – it makes you wonder what objections any Member of Congress could possibly have to embracing Eric and thousands of other young people who are Americans in all but paperwork."
The long and short of it is - since the Pentagon can't sucker enough native born USA-ians to go slaughter in the name of Empire, their hunting for hopeful immigrants who are willing to go die and kill in Afghanistan for a green card.

Elitist-wannabe moral cretins like Digby & crew are either too stupid to know or too sunk in middle class apathy to care, presumably so long as the aforementioned cannon fodder vote democrat if they're fortunate enough to survive their hitch and if Uncle Sam honors his part of the bargain. (Ask a Native American or a union member about Uncle Sam honoring contracts.)

It comes as a surprise to no one (who isn't a head-in-the-sand pwoggie bloggie puddin'-pop) that Afghanistan has untapped mineral deposits such as lithium. But it's the unalloyed, 100% moronic reaction of the pwoggie bloggie elite that boggles the mind. No, really. I am truly boggled:

A Hopeful Discovery in Afghanistan

"Let Afghanistan become the indispensable source of laptop batteries. That is so much more hopeful than the source of heroin. "

Being utterly bereft of words, I can only respond in pictures. Here's a few, for instance, of the oil and mineral rich Niger Delta:

Now, my only question for Pwogman! and his cloistered little bunch of pampered merit school cronies is - does this look fucking hopeful to you?

(Update: Displaying a breadth and depth of naivete that utterly defies my ability to describe in mere human terms - Pwogman! chides his commenters for daring to be criticize the good intentions of international corporations. No, really. I'm not kidding.)
