Quote of the Day


"If anybody reads the sainted, martyred Sherrod’s entire speech, this person has not gotten past black vs. white."

-- Andrew Breitbart

Well, let's see, asshole -- despite your unethical attempt to distill it down to the point where its meaning would be twisted backwards, everyone has now read and seen the entire speech, and you're wrong. Not to mention the fact that you're the one who fucking martyred her in the first place.

Oh, and to quote the great philosopher Principal Vernon of Shermer High School -- I don't care what you think, Andrew.

Careful man... you'll get another late night email from your best buddy if you keep this up.

I have lots of problems with the Breitbarts and Becks of this world. But my biggest concern isn't about the hacks who promulgate the latest rightwing claptrap; it's about the kind of people who pay the least bit of attentions to it.

Lack of curiosity about what may or may not be true is a dumb but potent force.

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across a wonderful NYT blog post by Errol Morris entitled "The Anosognosic's Dilemma: Something's Wrong but You'll Never Know What It Is" (http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/20/the-anosognosics-dilemma-1/). The gist is that some people are so stupid that they don't know they're stupid.

Of course, that's a terribly elitist and NYT kind of attitude, and every pinko like myself who buys into is part of what's wrong with This Great Nation of Ours.

But I contend that my frustration with dumb America is far nobler than Breitbart and Beck knowingly courting and cultivating an audience of morons to advance their own ends. (Which, when it comes down to it, involve getting rich.)

Quick, CNN, put him on the panel of your new 8:00 show! Perhaps a segment with Roland Martin called "Black vs. White" or "Ascot vs. Asshole".

People like Breitbart are still alive simply due to modern medicine and the legal system. Darwin's theory would have claimed his ass a long time ago, otherwise.

Fucking tell 'em, Chez.

Fucking tell 'em.

Now there's a face that will inspire people to wail on it for no discernible reason other than a deep and profound hatred of this man and all he holds dear. He's like pure, unadulterated douchery.

Stunning. Mind you, as countless others have noted, this will not harm his reputation or his cashflow one bit.

If anything, it's raised his profile some.

Win-win.

When they do the made for TV film about this - I do hope Matthew Perry plays Breibart.

Glenn Beck last night (yeah, I know, but I was tired and the remote was out of reach) had a timeline on his chalkboard that seems to illustrate that Sherrod was asked to resign before anyone at Fox picked up and ran with this story, so how can they be blamed for being the influence that the administration was so easily fooled by?

I seem to recall seeing clips of various Fox anchors going through the histrionic faux outrage, including the doofuses on that morning show they have, so now I'm confused. Their morning show would have been before the 'pull over and use your blackberry' episode which happened in the afternoon, if it happened on the same day.

If Beck is giving his audience a false timeline (and you can be sure he is the only source of information most of his audience will bother looking for), isn't that compounding the original deception with even more deception? Or am I off by one day and -- *swallows the urge to throw up in my own mouth* -- Glenn Beck is actually right?

That picture of him is priceless.

It looks like someone drew an angry face on a lump of dough.

He's the one who has yet to get over "Black vs. White" . . . the big prick.

I'm not a big fan of racism, but you gotta hand it to Ms. Sherrod. When you can manage to be the only recognizable racist in Georgia you've certainly accomplished something.

He looks like an angry John Lithgow in that pic.

Tabi said...

Heh...have you seen these emails between Breitbart and Glenn Beck?

Ref said...

If he calls you, please tell him I think he sucks dick.

The doughy face of Joey Buttafuoco plus the understated hairstyle of Guy Fieri? Dpuchey perfection!

hamletta said...

Anonymous I, I take issue with your casting decision.

While there is a slight resemblance between Breitbart and Perry (which would be more noticeable if the latter committed himself to a strict regime of beer, Cheetos, and bile), physical resemblance is not of supreme importance.

James Spader has been digging into the black heart of the nasty, privileged douchebag since his supporting roles in the teen comedies of the '80s.

Not to disparage Mr. Perry, who is a fine actor, but Mr. Spader can embody a case of narcissistic personality disorder like no other actor of his generation can.

What a douche! VOTAR, I think Glenn Beck is (*throws up in mouth*) right. As I've mentioned, I am living back with my parents during my divorce, and Fox News is on 18/7! Ahhhh...

Breitbart can't be racist. Some of his best friends' best friends are black.
