Bill Bennett: Sir, You Are No Chris Rock

September 30th, 2005 at 11:23 pm by Smantix

I hate Bill Bennett. With every clogged artery of my cold, black heart – I hate him. If I could sentence him to a Hell where he was forced to ingest two sheets of double-dipped blotter, made to watch Cheech & Chong movies all day long and only be allowed to play on a slot machine that never pays off for all of Eternity – I would. So it is with great regret that I must rush to the side of a man I despise so completely.

Let’s rehash what he said:

Bennett, on his radio show, “Morning in America,” was answering a caller’s question when he took issue with the hypothesis put forth in a recent book that one reason crime is down is that abortion is up.

“But I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down,” said Bennett, author of “The Book of Virtues.”

He went on to call that “an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky.”

Responding later to criticism, Bennett said his comments had been mischaracterized and that his point was that the idea of supporting abortion to reduce crime was “morally reprehensible.”

Now for the visually impaired or the especially hard of hearing who are having this read to them by a friend or loved one, that’s Bennett calling the idea “ridiculous” and “morally reprehensible”. Repeatedly. Others have noted more eloquently than I that:

In 1729 Jonathan Swift wrote “A Modest Proposal For Preventing The Children of Poor People in Ireland From Being A Burden to Their Parents or Country, and For Making Them Beneficial to The Public.”

Swift wrote A Modest Proposal to illustrate just how bad poverty had become in the early days of the Industrial Revolution. It was bad enough that, from an amoral perspective, the slaughter of children for human consumption, made economic sense. The sheer inhumanity of the suggestion was designed to shock the United Kingdom into confronting its very real problems with poverty. For that, Swift’s essay is still studied by nearly every student of college English Literature.

Enough of your erudite, book learnin’ Mr. Krumm. For those who missed Swift, they’ve surely seen a Chris Rock routine. Some people are allowed to say certain things about race and some people aren’t. As that is the case, the former Secretary of Education, Drug Czar, and Moral Thunderbolt caster Bennett’s completely unoriginal observations on “The Roe Effect” has elicited howls of manufactured outrage.

The Gray Tie gives us a partial transcript of Bennett’s appearance on Hannity & Colmes last night where he’s not backpedaling:

Before that, when I was secretary of education, I took on what I think is one of the great civil rights issues of our time, which is educational opportunity and educational choice. The stupid ghettoized curriculum we have, the fact that these black kids go to lousy schools and aren’t allowed to choose the schools of their choice because they don’t have the money and don’t have the opportunity.

I’ve been at this for 25 years and I have been called everything in the book, but I will stay at what I do because I believe it.

Let me just tell you, when it comes to abortion, my wife’s program, Best Friends, has kept more young women from having abortions because they don’t get pregnant because they take her good counsel…

HANNITY: Let me…

BENNETT: Than the entire black caucus. She has done more for inner city black girls than the entire black caucus. So I will not bow my head to any of these people.

Here’s the CDC on abortion rates by race for a little perspective. Since some people are so quick to intentionally misinterpret Bennett’s comments, it would only seem right to mention that Democrats already fund and sanction an ongoing war against the African-American community in the spirit of Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger and a realization of what she called “The Negro Project”:

In the 41 areas for which race was adequately reported, approximately 55% of women who obtained legal induced abortions were known to be white, 35% were black, and 7% were of other races; for 3% of the women, race was unknown. (Table 9). The abortion ratio for black women (503 per 1,000 live births) was 3.0 times the ratio for white women (167 per 1,000 live births).

Those numbers are fairly disgusting. That if you are black and in America that it’s a miracle you’re here in the first place since there is a greater than 50/50 chance for you to have been aborted than to be born.

Bennett is not responsible for the abortion end of his speculation. He’s responsible for the crime rate. As Drug Tsar, his zero-tolerance policies are to blame for the increase in incarcerations for minor drug offenses that disproportionately effected the percentage of blacks in prison and the numerically greater number of whites in prison. Aborting Bill Bennett’s appointment as Drug Tsar would have lowered the crime rate. He has criminalized millions of blacks, whites, and hispanics alike – indiscriminately embracing diversity through the zealous persecution of a victimless crime. Ruining the lives and careers of people who don’t share his particular vice.

Democrats have already laid a holocaust at the bedroom of Black America so attempting to slam Bennett is just a little more than disingenuous. They have deceived blacks into a mindset that sacrifices their children in a war where their coffins are draped by flags with “Choice” written on them. There will be no ACLU lawsuits to get those pictures.

I come neither to praise Bennett nor to bury him. Bennett helps fund inner city kids going to college unlike liberals who fund inner city kids’ path to extinction. Given that sad reality, today I must side with Bennett and I hope I never have to again.

Bizarre Love Triangle

September 30th, 2005 at 2:29 am by Smantix

As running proof that “no good deed goes unpunished”, Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie and Condoleeza Rice joined up to raise a paltry 1.3 million dollars to fight AIDS in Africa. Before breaking her arm to congratulate herself on being such a wonderful person, Clinton took the opportunity to make a slam at the Bush administration for Africa’s decades long struggle to realistically deal with AIDS:

While the women went out of their way to praise each other, Clinton drew loud applause when she called on the Bush administration and Congress to recognize the importance of condoms in the fight against AIDS.

“There is a great deal of political pressure to only talk about abstinence, and to deny support for condoms and education on using them,” Clinton said. “This policy will lead to the unnecessary deaths of many people.”

Oh. Africans are dying of AIDS because of Bush. Even a cursory look at their problem reveals that to be utterly fatuous:

JOHANNESBURG — The US government has purchased more than 1 billion condoms in the past two years to help prevent HIV infections in the developing world, a significant increase from previous years, amid criticism from activists that the Bush administration isn’t doing enough to make condoms more widely available.

By the end of December, US officials project that they will have shipped more than 612 million condoms this year to Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the greatest annual figure since 1991, according to the Office of the US Global AIDS Coordinator in Washington. In 2004, the United States purchased 442 million condoms.

Despite the increase, more than 60 countries around the world report condom shortages…

How can that be true? Bush is letting black people die because he hates their skin color and has an “abstinence only” policy towards dealing with AIDS if I’m hearing the Former First Lesbian correctly.

One has to seriously wonder if Hillary Clinton is a tranny because it takes balls the size of church bells to lay the blame of AIDS in Africa at the current administration’s feet. While Bush and Blair have been working on eliminating tens of billions of dollars in debt for Africa and pouring millions of dollars into anti-AIDS prevention programs, many in Africa are in denial that a) AIDS is a an imaginary problem dreamed up by Western pharmaceutical companies and b) that more than a handful of African health ministers believe it can be treated by olive oil, garlic and beetroot.

Take your 1.3 million and shove it up your ass Hillary. If you really want to stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases why don’t you start fucking your husband?

Unshocking Unbreaking News!

September 29th, 2005 at 2:46 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

Roberts confirmed. If you really care, Malkin’s got a list of how the Dim-O-Cracks voted. Personally, I don’t care. This was a foregone conclusion and you damn well know it.

The real question is what’s Junior going to do next? Will he get some balls and nominate an actual conservative to the court? Or will he continue to strut around like a peacock, showing off the moderate yellow stripe running down his back, blurting out verbal vomit about being a uniter, not a divider?

His next appointment will pretty much tell the story of the second term of his Presidency. Will it be more Daddy-style weakness and pandering or an unexpected Reaganesque conservative nomination?

Yes, I’m aware that Reagan appointed the worthless Sinead-O-Day-O-Connor – it wasn’t his only mistake, but it was his biggest Personally, I think he should nominate Heather Locklear. She’s hot.

Quote of The Week

September 29th, 2005 at 2:05 am by Smantix

After catching flak for laughing and giggling while being arrested outside of the White House this week, St. Cindy Shenanigans breaks down what was so freaking hilarious:

Why I Was Smiling and Hurricane Rita (55 comments )

I had a huge grin on my face when I was getting arrested yesterday. I have received a lot of flak for smiling. Apparently I am not supposed to smile, but I had some really good reasons for doing so.

First of all, I was having fun. I was with a group of good-humored, cheerful, happy people. We were singing old protest songs and old Sunday school songs and clapping. I felt I had to be cheerful to set the tone. We didn’t want any trouble or to do anything non-peaceful. Secondly, when I got arrested and the officers lifted me out I was afraid that America would see my underwear and that tickled me.

Nice visual Ms. Nasty-Ass. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go wrap my cock in a makeshift splint of two popsicle sticks and some duct tape coupled with several shots of bourbon to help erase that image.

And if anyone has a problem with *that* visual, in the future, please make sure that the next time Ms. Fat-Ass-Panty-Flasher takes Camp Crotchrot on the road that she puts some clothes on.

Crazy Jerry’s House of Discount Abortion

September 29th, 2005 at 1:17 am by Smantix

Dorothy, hold my calls! I’m wrist deep in dead baby! Did Bush & “Brownie’s” hatred of black people cause you to get raped at the Superdome? Did Hurricane Katrina sweep you off your feet, whisper sweet nothings in your ear and then leave you barefoot and pregn’int? Fret no more.

Crazy Jerry’s House of Discount Abortion will beat any competitor’s price:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A doctor has offered to perform free abortions on hurricane evacuees, saying it may be too dangerous for them to wait until they return home.

Despite protests from abortion opponents, Little Rock Family Planning clinic director Dr. Jerry Edwards said he has already performed six free abortions. The clinic usually charges between $525 and $600 for a first-trimester abortion.

The only thing more dangerous than waiting to return home would be waiting another day with that inconvenient ticking timebomb in your belly. Offer may not be valid in some areas:

FREE ABORTIONS for
Hurricane Katrina Survivors

At LRFPS we are offering abortions at no charge to victims of Hurricane Katrina. In order to receive this service you MUST have a government issued picture ID showing your home address in the following counties/parishes: Jackson, Harrison, and Hancock – Mississippi. Orleans, Kenner, Plaquemines, St. Tammay, St. Bernard, Jefferson, Charles, Terrabone, and St. James – Louisiana.

Why pay more? Don’t be fooled by the other guys. That’s Crazy Jerry’s House of Discount Abortion. 9 miles due west of the Clinton Library.

WTW: Supreme Skank

September 28th, 2005 at 3:45 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

Much like nominee John “David-Souter-In-Training” Roberts, everyone’s favorite binge-dieting, gold-digging, drug-addled bimbo is heading for the highest court in the land.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The rollicking tale of Playboy playmate and ex-stripper Anna Nicole Smith snatched top billing in the staid and sober US Supreme Court, after justices said they would hear the outrageous reality star’s multi-million dollar inheritance claim.

The case, due to come up early next year, is the culmination of a fierce legal tussle between Smith and the son of her late billionaire oil magnate husband Howard Marshall, which has daubed US gossip columns in a trail of sleaze and scandal.

Marshall died, aged 90 in 1995, four years after meeting the busty Texas-born bombshell, then a 26-year-old topless dancer working under her real name Vickie Lynn, in Houston’s “Gigi” nightclub.

Smith who has splashed herself across a Playboy centerfold and dubbed her recent uncensored cable show “America’s Guiltiest Pleasure” was awarded an 88.5 million dollar slice of her husband’s 1.6 billion dollar estate in 2002.

Her lawyers argue that California’s Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit was wrong last year to overturn the stipend on the grounds that the District court judge who made the huge award had no jurisdiction over the case.

It is heart-wrenchingly tragic when a love as beautiful and pure as that of Anna Nicole and Howard is dragged through the mud via the spotlight of the judicial system. Apparently, the late Howard Marshall’s son doesn’t believe in true love and the loving bond between a husband and wife – he wants Nicole cut out of the will altogether. Heartless, cynical bastard.

Smith also claims Marshall’s son Pierce has maliciously sought to cut her out of a share of her late husband’s wealth.

Pierce in return claims he is his father’s sole heir, has branded Smith’s demands “extravagant” and always disputed her earlier claim that his father promised her half his fortune.

When Smith won her original 88 million dollar settlement in March 2002, her lawyer Philip Boesch declared “this is a complete victory for my client, and I think it’s a victory for a husband’s love for his wife.”

Judge David Carter ruled in the case, in which Smith was often lambasted by opposing attorneys as a “golddigger”, that Marshall was a “sickly” old man and his bride-to-be was a “vibrant” young woman when they met.

He found that Smith eventually agreed to marriage after being plied with gifts, though was concerned that wedlock could harm her burgeoning modelling career.

“Their lives were intertwined in need, driven by greed and lust. Nevertheless, the court is convinced of his love for her,” Carter wrote in his judgement.

Let’s hope, for the sake of all that is good and pure, that the court realizes how much Anna Nicole truly loved her husband/cadaver and that she is due at least half of his fortune. Such a ruling would be a triumph and an inspiration to the many supporters of traditional marriage. Because there’s nothing more traditional than a crack-addled stripper marrying a crippled old man for a shot at mountains of cash.

New Orleans Needs You Chief Spanky

September 27th, 2005 at 11:05 pm by Smantix

New Orleans’ Disgrace-in-Chief has finally resigned but who could take his place? Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a time for being selfish. We cannot hog all of the talent at our disposal. In Volunteer fashion, I volunteer Chief Spanky to go home and fix the shithole that is New Orleans.

Having succeeded in increasing Nashville’s murder rate, rape rate, traffic fatality rate and instead focusing on selective enforcement of traffic laws to the tune of a whopping 77% increase in tickets over the previous year – I know this may come as a shock – but New Orleans needs you more than we do Chief Spanky.

We’ve loved the antics of the entire department under your Reign of Error. The taser deaths. The media whoring. The shooting of the elderly in our Parks on Movie Night. Taking on any betting on games of chance outside of the State Lottery with Swift & Brutal Justice(tm). The covering up for officers getting drunk and running over students while letting them drink water before they have to take a breath test hours later.

It takes real nerve to pay undercover informants to have sex with strippers and then arrest a local ad man for placing advertisements for strip clubs. Thankfully Chief Spanky then eliminated the scourge of naked, gyrating titties fleecing my pockets of ducats that rightfully belong to Metro’s Meter Maid division. Thank you for protecting me from myself.

I love that I now no longer fear going downtown out of worrying about getting a DUI but now rather out of fear of getting shot.

Don’t get me wrong. We’ve had our fun and I didn’t even bring your son’s legal issues into it either.

But the resignation of New Orleans top cop leaves a gaping hole that only a hulking tube of manmeat like you could ever fill. We will miss you Chief Spanky.

Au revoir!

Two for Tuesday

September 27th, 2005 at 10:29 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

Two of my blog-crushes (Debbie Schlussel and Beth at MVRWC) have a couple of excellent posts that deserve some linky-love.

First of all, in case you missed it, Debbie Schlussel has been playing 007, going undercover at a Hezbollah Mosque in DetroitThe Islamic House of Wisdom. What she found will not make you feel any safer from islamic terrorism – in fact, it will probably cause nausea and vomiting, not necessarily in that order. It was a who’s-who of islamic bootlicking courtesy of the Feds.

A week ago, Saturday Night, I was at the Islamic House of Wisdom, a Hezbollah mosque, to see why our top Federal employees would hang out with Hezbollah’s hand-picked cleric, Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi, and his congregants–terrorism supporters (and funders). It wasn’t pretty. I didn’t see much wisdom, but I saw a ton of pandering.

Republican U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III (the Justice Dept.’s top official in the heart of Islamic America), Michigan FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel Roberts, Michigan and Ohio ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) Special Agent in Charge Brian Moskowitz (a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz”), and Carol Jennifer, head of Citizenship and Immigration Services, and Michael Moore’s favorite far-left Congressman, John Conyers (co-star of “Fakenheit 911″) all yukked it up with Hezbollah’s American Imam, Mohammed Ali Elahi. Also there: ICE Assistant Special Agent in Charge Michael “Mick” Hodzen (a/k/a “The Tool Belt Holder”).

It’s not like the Feds have anything else to do. First they’re looking to create a new porn squad, then it’s a new radical islamic suck-up squad. I guess we really have won the war on terror, if these are our new best friends. And how seriously are we taking radical islam? Not very.

Kowtowing to the Hezbollah mosque’s Imam, Elahi–who was sent here from Iran by Hezbollah in 1991 to radicalize Shia mosques and somehow managed to stay after his 4-month visa expired–these officials (and their retinue of 9 additional ass-kissing federal agents in tow) joked around with Elahi about why Hezbollah would even be considered a terrorist group. How funny. I’m sure my friend Ken Stethem–whose brother, Navy Diver Robert Stethem, was tortured to death by Hezbollah on a hijacked plane–wouldn’t find it so funny.

Nor do I think anyone sane would like Elahi’s repeated comments (to the Feds’ enthusiastic applause) that, “What is going on South of Lebanon, is not terrorism. That’s resistance.”

Stay tuned to Debbie’s blog for part two, which I’m sure will follow shortly and will probably be just as disturbing.

Next, Beth at MVRWC has a great letter from a U.S. Marine in Iraq. She’s been in touch with a few of them for a while now – the letter is a great reminder about the gutsy men and women serving in the war on terror, and the good news is that the morale of the troops on the ground has not been undermined by the public display of idiocy by Cindy Shitcan and her allies in the Old Media.

I think you would be amazed at the morale of the young military people here. I know I am. I’ve been in for over 28 years and I have seen good and bad. These youngsters are getting the job done in a way I would never have imagined. They go on convoys, get shot at or have IEDs go off, then they return still in high spirits. The trick here is to convince the bad guys they have been beat. The idiots at the peace rallies are what’s really hurting since the stated goals of the insurgents is to break down public support for the war in the US. I heard the other day that 52% of the people back home think we are losing. I would be worried if it was 1995 and this was the case, but Bush doesn’t govern via polls like Clinton did. That’s one thing we all appreciate about the president; he sticks to the plan.

Beth includes a couple of other messages for the drooling left that are worth visiting for as well, so go see her.

LSU Fans Heartbroken

September 27th, 2005 at 8:49 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

It couldn’t happen to a better bunch of asshats.

LSU fans attack UT team buses prior to gametime.

It was a stark contrast to the welcome Tennessee’s team received when it arrived on campus two hours earlier. LSU fans rocked their buses and broke windows by throwing beer bottles at the Vols.

UT athletics director Mike Hamilton said the Tennessee party had four buses, and he was on the last one, which included other school officials and cheerleaders. “They were throwing bottles at the buses and that kind of stuff,” Hamilton said. “The bus I was on, they broke three of the windows.”

Vicky Fulmer, wife of UT coach Phillip Fulmer, was riding on the first UT bus and said fans threw beer all over it.

LSU officials explained that three cracked windows occurred after the UT buses mistakenly got behind the LSU team buses, which stopped as scheduled.

“Usually that never happens,” LSU associate athletics director Herb Vincent said. “We keep the (visiting team) buses moving so the fans never get the opportunity to touch the buses.”

Sounds like rioting and lawlessness must be a cajun thing.

Halftime Thoughts

September 26th, 2005 at 9:33 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

A couple of quick thoughts as I take a break from the horrific Tennessee/LSU game, wipe away my tears, have another whiskey sour and bang out some blog ignunce for you people.

First of all, Lynndie England was convicted today. I’m so excited about her conviction that I did a Lynndie.

LYNNDIE ENGLAND, the US reservist who became the public face of the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal in Iraq, was convicted by a military jury in Texas yesterday for her role in the affair.

England, 22, one of a group of nine Army reservists accused of abusing prisoners at the Baghdad jail, was found guilty of six out of seven charges, including four counts of maltreating detainees and one of committing an indecent act. She was found not guilty on one conspiracy charge.

She should also have been charged with Ambiguous Gender and Hideous Dogface. If only those were crimes.

Speaking of less-than-aesthetically-pleasing-mugs, Cindy Shitcan got arrested outside of the White House today in her continuing cavalcade of “LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME, STOP THE WAR! I HAVE A DEAD SON!” idiocy.

Is there any way to have her put away for a couple of years so that we can make damn sure her 15-minutes of fame are dead-and-buried before she gets out? Can’t we write a Sheehan-specific law or some such?

Enough about that idiot-bitch. Last but not least, the Commissar has stayed on top of the Sandra Beth Geisel case – reporting that her plea deal will have her out of jail by the end of the year. Which is fortuitous, because I’ll be in need of a little extra action right around then. Mmmmmm…. Sandra Beth Geisel.

Well, the second half of doom is about to start. We’ll see if LSU can put 50 points on the board by the end of the game. Perhaps the Great Pumpkin will put Clausen in for the rest of the second half – he’s the only shot we have of not being completely embarrassed on national cable television. If it gets really ugly, I’ll switch back over to the Chiefs/Broncos game – I hear Marcus Allen is having a whale of a night running the football.

Sorry for the light blogging as of late, but I’m taking a bit of a vacation with the family and chasing Preston Jr. while he wears a Darth Vader mask is far more enjoyable than riffing on the news.

UNFUCKINGBELIEVEABLE UPDATE:

Vols come back to stun LSU in OT, 30-27.

How the hell did that happen? I hope to hell this puts that “quarterback controversy” to rest. Clausen should have been the starter all year long. End of story.

Bush Tax Cuts Kill Again

September 25th, 2005 at 12:23 pm by Smantix

Yet another one of our nation’s precious seniors kicked the bucket this weekend as we mourn the passing of beloved small-screen bully “Butch” from The Little Rascals.

butchforeignpolicy
Butch providing a valuable parable on the misuse of US military dominance

Had Alfalfa not been justifiably murdered over a $50 reward for a stolen dog back in 1959, he would surely be breathing easier today or hooked up on a respirator to help him do so.

“Butch” was a spry 79 years young. If only we had elected John Edwards the money for embryonic stem cell research would have already been diverted from those tax cuts for the top 1% and Butch would be planning his 80th Birthday. Now we’ll never know.

Damn you, Chimpy.

A Brief Conversation With The Mrs.

September 24th, 2005 at 11:38 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

…while driving back from Johnson City to Knoxville on I-81, upon seeing a big-ass red pickup-truck with “Just Married” scrawled across the back window.

Mrs. Holmes: “Aren’t you glad that’s not us in a pickup truck on our way to Gatlinburg on our honeymoon?”

Me: “Yeah. I guess so.”

Mrs. Holmes: “I guess they’re happy though.”

Me: “I suppose.”

Mrs. Holmes: “It is one of the only three days in their marriage where he doesn’t hit her.”

Me: * Expression of shock and disgust *

She can be brutal when driving late at night. Yes she can.

Good Will Gassing

September 24th, 2005 at 11:48 am by Smantix

So this is how Matt Damon and Ben Affleck got famous? For anyone who missed the suitcase nuke dropped on a sycophantic Nashville commentariat this morning, their beloved “Gas Guy” revealed *gasp* The Truth(tm).

“What,� you cry aloud “You weren’t telling us the whole truth about your life?� Well, of course I wasn’t. This isn’t a court of law. Gas Guy is a character, not a human being. He reflects certain aspects of my life, principally the thing I do for beer money between English lit and rhetoric seminars that would bore most people to tears. There is no savant devoid of formal education standing in a gas station in Tennessee. I don’t even live in Tennessee. Honestly, I’ve never set foot in the state. Shocked? Horrified? Pleased and delighted? Does it matter at all? Not really.

I kind of had a feeling about this. That scene in The Silence of the Lambs kept playing over in my head where Hannibal Lecter had warned Jodie Foster about the “elaboration of a bad liar”. But the Gas Guy is neither bad or a liar. I’ve enjoyed some of these things he’s written. Particularly this one: “Evil”

I’d like to think that his creative writing experiment would make some people rethink the way they project their own biases to fill the gaps in what they don’t know, or worse, intentionally deceive themselves to only see what they want to see – but that would be giving some people too much credit. And we know how the Gas Guy feels about extending credit.

Consider it an important and inexpensive lesson. And a well played one.

Hurricane Cindy Poised to Strike Washington, Democrat Poll Numbers

Do not fear the gay babies. They know not what they do. Fear the people who probably adopted them and then pose them with rainbow flags and post their photos on the front page of the website for a Communist front group in lieu of their traitor March on Washington.

But not all is well in the party that is being lead around the nation by a woman who could easily pass for the nation’s ugliest lesbian art teacher. Via the always relevant sweetness-light.com:

Top Dems leave as protest nears

Party split between anti-war activists and prominent critics

STEVEN THOMMA
Knight Ridder

WASHINGTON – As the anti-war movement arrives in Washington this weekend, many Democrats are leaving.

Nationally known Democratic war critics, including Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Russell Feingold of Wisconsin and John Kerry of Massachusetts, won’t attend what sponsors say will be a big anti-war rally Saturday in Washington.

Today’s leading Democrats head a party divided over the war, and many leaders are wary of standing with anti-war activists, who represent much of the party’s base. The divide between anti-war activists and Democratic leaders underscores a challenge the party faces in the 2006 congressional elections and beyond.

En route to Washington for the rally, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan protested outside Clinton’s New York office. “She knows that the war is a lie, but she is waiting for the right time to say it,” Sheehan said. “You say it or you are losing your job.”

Spokesmen for the Democrats who are skipping the anti-war event all said they had schedule conflicts. But some leading anti-war activists aren’t buying it.

That’s got to sting.

Uhhh. Yea. Listen, I had a great time (motions hand to ear). I’ll call you, ok?

The Democrats must be feeling a little bit like Diane Keaton in Looking for Mr. Goodbar. They took the scraggledy whore of the anti-war movement home, laid up in bed with her a few years and now she wants a ring put on her finger.

This is why you put a bag over her head. So she can’t track you down later and embarrass you in public. All that is certain is that Saint Cindy Shenanigan will at last have the medium to disgrace the Democrats once and for all.

On Late Night w/ Bill Maher (9/23/05), everybody’s favorite black transvestite beating Keebler Elf did not even bother mentioning that there is a rally in Washington tomorrow. He got the memo. Well, the memo and the pubic lice.

I foolishly taped over the last big International ANSWER rally where Immaculate Mother Cindy was just beginning to sprout her goat horns. Not this time. The pant pissers think they have the momentum and will not squander the opportunity to say what they think Amerikkka needs to hear to it’s fascist face. Don’t take it easy on us. Hit us with both barrels if you must.

Speak Truth To Power. Level with us on the courage of the Iraqi freedom fighter. Don’t mince your words about the cabal of “neocon” Jews who run the US government through the Project for a New American Century at the bequest of Ariel Sharon. I want to know why the elite Army Corps of Engineers blew up the levees in New Orleans. Or how Bushitler was passing out blankets filled with small pox to evacuees at the Superdome. Or why the FBI is moving the furniture in your house when you go to the store. And finally, why we should Free Mumia, the Cuban Five and Jamil Al-Amin.

The End of the Democratic Party begins tomorrow. And we’re all going to be better for it.

Football Friday

September 23rd, 2005 at 1:01 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

I just keep getting worse and worse. While Mr. Loud-Mouth-Look-At-Me-My-Football-Picks-Are-Always-Right-Mac-Stansbury continues to rub it in. Bastard.

I went 2/5 in both pro and semi-pro last week, which absoultely sucks. At least when I suck, I suck on all levels. In regard to the anemic offensive performance by my beloved Vols last week, my dad had a good point. He said, “everyone is talking about all this great talent coming back, but no one has pointed out the horrible news that the coaching staff is returning as well.” And when Randy Sanders is steering the offensive ship, it’s gonna get ugly and stay ugly.

This, and a depleted offensive line, is why LSU will beat up on the Orange Monday night 24-14. Our defense will hang in there, as they’re all we have to count on, but in the end, it will be the same offense that has ranked in the 60′s and 70′s nationally for the last several years. Elsewhere in semi-pro ball:

  • Notre Dame 33 Washington 10 – The Irish are going to make Ty Willingham pay for what he did to the program for the past several years.
  • Bama 36 Razorbacks 13 – I hear they’re calling Alabama QB Brodie Croyle “Vanilla Vick.” Sounds pretty racist to me. Somebody call one of the Race Reverends and get them to Tuscaloosa quick.
  • Vanderbilt 28 Richmond 13 – Vandy at 4-0? I’ll have to pull for the Richmond Spiders, simply because they’re called the Spiders, which makes them scary. However, I didn’t know Richmond had a football team – I thought they were just a basketball school.
  • USC 44 Oregon 15 – Watching USC this year, you’d have to think they could beat the Arizona Cardinals. They’re that good. In fact, I’m a little glad that Tennessee is pretty much out of the chase for the national title, because I wouldn’t want to play USC this year.

In pro ball, I was quite proud of the Titans for hanging 25 points on the Ravens’ defense last week. For those of us who have watched the Ravens beat up on the Titans since 2000, this was a very gratifying win. I will never forget that depressing Monday night a few years ago, drunken and dejected, leaving Adelphia after losing to the Ravens at the end of the game. I hate Brian Billick and the Ravens. Bastards.

This week, the Titans could run into trouble in St. Louis, but I’m optimistic they’ll pull out an ugly win, 22 – 17 over the Rams. Elsewhere in pro ball:

  • Carolina 26 Miami 20 – Nice win over the Pats last week for the Panthers. They may be hitting a hot streak as a result.
  • Pittsburgh 24 New England 21 – Speaking of the Pats, the Steelers have something to prove this week, and having New England at home will be motivating. Starting 1-2 will be a wake-up call for the Pats, though, so they’re not going to stay down for long.
  • Colts 23 Browns 10 – Feel free to take a nap during this one.
  • Cincinnati 29 Chicago 17 – The Bengals are back, baby. Ken Anderson will throw for 400 yards and Archie Griffin will grind out 150 yards on the ground for the resurgent Orange and Black.

That’s it for this week. Now I’ll sit back and wait for Mac to chime in and tell me what’s wrong with all my picks.

UPDATE:


Story now declining in hilarity. Up to 24 dead.

A Dallas County Sheriff’s Department official told FOX News that the bus had been carrying elderly evacuees from coastal areas expected to be hit by the giant hurricane.

He said sparks from the bus’s brakes may have ignited oxygen tanks being carried onboard by elderly passengers with respiratory problems.

Where were you during this disaster, President Bush!? Is this your idea of Social Security reform? Getting rid of a busload of seasoned citizens? Did you have some of your Texas cronies pull this off!?!? WHERE WAS FEMA WHEN THIS HAPPENED?!?!?

September 22nd, 2005 at 2:33 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

Citizens of Houston: Hurricane Rita is coming. Have you not left yet? Perhaps this will get you moving.

That should freak your ass out enough to get you out of town. For the rest of you looter-types who are planning to hang around just to rob, steal, loot, rape, pillage, burn, loiter and whatever the hell else you got away with in New Orleans… think again. The Houston P. D. is armed and ready. And they don’t play.

UPDATE:


Rita has now moved the Tennessee/LSU game to 7:30 pm Monday Night (ESPN2). Perhaps during those two extra days, we’ll find an offense.

“HELP KATRINA VICTIMS” blares the banners at the top of websites – left, right and center across the internet. The ad continues “Here’s a list of various aid groups and efforts. And here’s another. You can also volunteer shelter here. Or simply go to the American Red Cross website.” You expect me to help an organization with a mission statement like this???

The Red Cross may also help those needing long-term recovery assistance when all other available resources are unavailable or inadequate to meet the needs. All assistance is based on verified disaster-caused needs and is free-literally a gift as a result of the generous support of the American people.

In true Volunteer spirit, Nashville has elected to become a slum away from slum for many of New Orleans most desperate and dispossessed. But it turns out our welcome mat isn’t “black enough” – so says the militant Black Power leaflet The Nashville Scene. Soul brother No. #1, John Spragens breaks out his felt hat and pimp cane at our local Red Cross and rides to our Cultural Rescue:

displaced victims of the poor planning for Hurricane Katrina could use a little humanity after their heartrending ordeal with bureaucratic ineptitude. They could use a familiar face, a hug, a sympathetic ear, a favorite hymn tune and, just maybe, some hair relaxer. This is the kind of disaster relief that elderly white ladies in Red Cross smocks, however well-intentioned, will probably never be able to provide for the largely African American, largely low-to-mid-income New Orleans population in diaspora…

Word is bond, Brother John and take that you well-intentioned smock-wearing white bitches with your “free time” and your “good will”. Now this isn’t in quotations so I’m left to credit Spragens with this jewel:

“Disaster response should strive to resemble the people it’s helping.”

Seriously, who made that fucking rule? Waiting on The Mayor of New Orleans is what got them in such troubled waters to begin with. I mean it’s an interesting theory – one that could potentially save the US billions across the globe by halting foreign aid to people who don’t look like a stereotypical American. But what’s missing here, besides an editor, is anyone mentioning this unfathomable ingratitude.

Afraid that they are going to miss out on some of those Louisiana Lottery dollars, local poverty pimps have also not been shy about wanting their handout, er…I mean to help out.

“When you’re different and you’re the lone person, you do feel different. When you’re in crisis you like to have some familiarity there,â€? says Joyce Searcy with the Bethlehem Centers of Nashville.

And nothing says “familiar” like good old-fashioned segregation.

Searcy says she tried to open up her community center as a shelter, but could not get approved by the Red Cross. It already had a list of 63 churches and community groups.

Searcy adds, “You know that big headline that we were gonna have six thousand evacuees and the list of shelters in the newspaper were in the suburbs and so the question is: why aren’t these in our community?â€?

Why aren’t they in your community? A) 63 Churches had already planned for this. B) Probably because you never gave a fuck about helping the Red Cross in such a capacity until you thought there was something in it for you. C) Or that you only want to help because the people have black faces. How racist is that?

Even money, dollars to dubs that if it looked like a bunch of white people at the local Red Cross because the tornado hit their trailer park that the Interdenominational Ebenezer Tree of Life Church coalition couldn’t give two shits about them. While the Red Cross was out trying to help people find a place to stay, what passes for “black leadership” in this city was arguing about whether to call them “refugees” or “evacuees”.

Or the hue and cry that would have come from the same quarters if organizers had shuttled blacks into the poor neighborhoods and sent the whole box of townhouse crackers to Brentwood.

The Red Cross says it’s because the other groups were already on a pre-approved list. Their facilities had already been checked out, and the volunteers, already trained.

A likely story you grafted white devils.

But Reverend Enoch Fuzz says in times like this, the volunteer corps should be more diverse, “Who in Brentwood would know where a black beauty shop or barber shop is?� asks Fuzz.

You got me there Reverend Fuzz if that is indeed your real name. Forget food, water, shelter and medical attention – I need to know where to get my hair and my nails did!

Hey! This ice cream tastes like jihad! I want my dinar back!

Burger King wets pants, caves into moronic islamic demands to remove “offensive” ice cream cones from from its sub-par restaurants.

THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a “jihad”.

The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: “The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone.”

Burger King could have saved a lot of money by simply hiring a hit man.

There’s so much good stuff going on in the news and the greater ‘sphere, and here I am crippled by this damn job. We’ve been so busy here at Six Meat churning out content that we’ve neglected the art of the semi-regular link-drop.

First things, first, it’s HANS WATCH: DAY 50 according to Parrot Check, who is apparently counting. If you’re out there, Hans, check in! Duncan is starting to get me worried about you and your relationship with Hugo Chavez. Come back, Hans Bricks! We miss you. Really. Would it kill you to send an e-mail or leave a comment?

Area 417 has uncovered the Lost Scrolls of the Bill of Rights. They were uncovered right next to the huge crater that was left after the government blew up the New Orleans levees, intentionally flooding the black neighborhoods, leaving the white neighborhoods unscathed.

Dr. Shackleford spent his weekend chainsawing trees in the Katrina damage zone. He’s also got a message to those of us on both the right and the left assigning blame to various parties. Just go read it.

You may or may not have heard the absurd remarks last week by GOP mouthpiece Tom Delay, when he said that there is “simply no fat left to cut” from the Federal budget. After the spending spree those bastards have been on, not only is this comment laughable, he should be driven out of office for being completely fucking deranged.

In response to Delay’s nonsense, Insty and N.Z. Bear have teamed up to encourage the blogosphere to help find the fat in their state and local budgets. There is even a Porkbusters blog out there. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think they were trying to steal my meat gimmick.

Stop the ACLU has the scoop on memos related to the Roberts nomination that could tie leftist special interest groups to certain Dim-O-Crack members of congress. Unfortunately, if you can find a dead body in the back of a submerged Dim-O-Crack’ Senator’s car, and that’s not enough to nail them, I doubt this will amount to much.

Is anyone else sick-to-death of seeing President Bush 1 and President Clifford’s ugly mugs on television begging for money? It seems like every time something happens, these two team up to repeatedly offend my sensibilities via television and radio. Then President Clifford has to take his temporary opportunity in the media spotlight to take unnecessary shots at President Junior. I was considering taking on Clifford’s comments, but Garfield Dave has already done an excellent job of taking him to the woodshed. Why reinvent the squeaky wheel?

By the way, if you want to give, don’t give to the Bush-Clifford Katrina Fund. That will probably go straight up President Clifford’s nose. Give to the Salvation Army instead.

Feisty is still in Norway and living life on the fjord’s edge. Get home safe, you filthy whore, you.

Now I think I’ll tune out and watch some damn football.

UPDATE:

I made the mistake of leaving the TV on ESPN for the Giants/Saints halftime-show where Three Doors Down just performed something they might call a “song”. Just because you’re a band from Southern Mississippi doesn’t give you the right to play maudlin bilge with a lead singer who doesn’t have the gift of pitch or key.

I hereby demand all halftime shows that are not simply a marching band spelling out letters or playing fight songs be prohibited immediately.

The eternally recurring barnyard allegory that is the German political scene has their karmic Luger set to “Hay�. The feint of heart may want to cover their eyes because The Financial Times really knows how to blow up my skirt:

Germany slid into political chaos on Sunday night as the election produced a hung parliament, with both chancellor Gerhard Schröder and his challenger Angela Merkel claiming victory and the right to form a new government.

And by “Chancellor Gerhard Schröder� they mean Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. Chalk up another win for The Coalition. Or is it?

Not one to let rumors of “instability� upset the lucrative oil deal he just signed with Putin to punish Poland and the Ukraine, Gerhard fired up a little of that vaunted Germanic Fascism:

Schroeder defiantly taunted Merkel in a joint television appearance Sunday night, saying she would not receive the post of chancellor in any deal with the Social Democrats.

“If Mrs. Merkel manages to form a coalition with the Free Democrats and Greens, I can say nothing against it,” Schroeder said. “But she will not win a coalition under her leadership with my Social Democratic Party.”

Asked if he would be chancellor in a left-right coalition, Schroeder answered, “How else would it work?” (emphasis mine)

Great Moments in German History

NSA1939
Signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop / Nazi-Soviet Nonagression Pact

NSA2005
Signing of the Northern European Gas Pipeline / Nazi-Soviet Nonagression Pact

LikeSo

Former Chancellor Schröder refuses to concede after loss.

Maybe this guy was on to something:

The metaphysical comfort–with which, I am suggesting even now, every true tragedy leaves us–that life is at the bottom of things, despite all the changes of appearances, indestructibly powerful and pleasurable–this comfort appears in incarnate clarity in the chorus of the satyrs, a chorus of natural beings who live ineradicably, as it were, behind all civilization and remain eternally the same, despite the changes of generations and of the history of nations.

ABC Television: Murderers of Popular Culture – AND PEOPLE!

September 18th, 2005 at 11:00 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes

What’s it like to have blood on your hands, ABC? Ugly blood.

Extreme Makeover candidate sues ABC for not following through with her massive reconstructive surgery. The ugly duckling had to remain the ugly duckling and it cost her sister her life.

LOS ANGELES – The producers of “Extreme Makeover” promised Deleese Williams “a Cinderella-like” fix for a deformed jaw, crooked teeth, droopy eyes and tiny boobs that would “transform her life and destiny.”

But when the ABC reality show dumped the Texas mom the night before the life-changing plastic surgeries, it shattered her family’s dream and triggered her sister Kellie McGee’s suicide, says a bombshell lawsuit filed in L.A. Superior Court.

How did this result in the suicide of the sister, you may ask? Apparently, during the process leading up to the show, the sister was forced to say bad, awful things about her dogfaced sister/t.v. show candidate and she was very hurt with that. In fact, there was speculation that bad, awful things were said about Deleese and she fell down the stairs and her shoes fell off [/SolRosenbergAccent].

As part of the premakeover hype, producers coaxed McGee and other family members to trash Williams’ looks on videotape, the suit alleges. When they suddenly pulled the plug on the project, and the promised “Hollywood smile like Cindy Crawford,” a guilt-ridden McGee fell apart.

“Kellie could not live with the fact that she had said horrible things that hurt her sister. She fell to pieces. Four months later, she ended her life with an overdose of pills, alcohol and cocaine,” said Wesley Cordova, a lawyer for Williams.

“This family is shredded. There is a human cost to this,” Cordova said.

It is not known whether or not ABC executives provided McGee with the pills, alcohol or cocaine, but officials haven’t ruled it out at this point.

As with many tragic stories like this one, there is usually a silver lining. In the case of this story, the silver lining would be that Williams’ mother-in-law was finally able to let her true feelings flow, undoubtedly lifting a heavy burden from her chest.

To please the producers, Williams’ mother-in-law also laid it on thick. “She said things like ‘I never believed my son would marry such an ugly woman.’ ” Cordova says.

It’s never good to have family secrets. I’m sure the family is better off now that everything is out in the open.

Oh well, that’s showbiz!
