There Is Nothing Noble About The Nobel

Saturday, October 10th, 2009

There has been so much made of Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday that I thought I’d make my triumphant return after being away for two days (thanks for noticing) and add my two cents.

The way I see it, there are really only two camps of thought on this: A) Obama deserves the award because he is a man of peace, and B) What the hell?

You may find this hard to believe, but I’m glad Obama received the Nobel. However, I’m glad he received it, but not for the same reason the drooling lefties are glad he received it. Let me explain.

George Bush & The Iraqi Shoeter

Monday, December 15th, 2008

As most of you are aware by now, the big news of the day revolves around George Bush dodging a shoe thrown by an Iraqi *journalist* at a news conference in Baghdad earlier yesterday. The journalist in question has been thrown in jail, prompting an angry protest by thousands of Iraqi’s demanding his release.

Today was a day filled with heroes. From the man that tossed his shoes at George Bush, to the protesters demanding the shoe thrower be released from jail, to the media that unbiasedly reported the incident ad-nausea.

The man that threw his shoes at the President is a hero because he stood up and said what he believed, knowing that what he did could get him thrown into a wood chipper, his wife and daughters raped by George Bush’s henchmen, and the rest of his family shot in the back of the head and thrown into one of the many mass graves that the Americans (spit) have all over Iraq.

The protesters are heroes because unlike the democratic regime of Saddam Hussein, who valued and welcomed open demonstrations against his government, the evil Americans (spit) only know how to silence dissent, are known to shoot protesters on site, force any opposition into exile, and toss the rest into the torture chambers they call jail. Imagine, risking their lives to free but one man.

Finally, the media are heroes. They have stood against America from the beginning, and this is just more proof that America cannot be trusted. Imagine taking a freedom fighter and throwing him in jail for simply trying to assault the President of the United States. Had it been Barrack Hussein Obama (pbuh) on that podium yesterday, BHO (pbuh) would have brought the poor freedom fighter to the back room and enjoyed a delicious falafel with him, while discussing how terrible America really is.

The protester is but an extension of our fair and balanced msm. The person who threw that shoe was Iraqi, but he could have very well been any reporter from the New York Times. They all seem to think exactly the same. Was it Muntader al-Zaidi who called Bush a dog, or was that Judith Miller? Was that Muntader al-Zaidi that caused the ruckus or was it Michael Gordon? Was that Muntader al-Zaidi that threw his shoes or did they come from the feet of the entire New York Times editorial board?

Bush will be gone in one month and finally Iraq can get back to normal. Everything old will be new again. Good riddance Bush, good job on wrecking a great country!

Keyser: On the Right Side As Usual

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

You know, Keyser has always been vaguely embarrassed that he once voted for a Democrat. This was back in 1990, when the two candidates for governor of Massachusetts were the ostensibly Republican William Weld and the Democrat John Silber, who was president of Boston University. Weld gave off a sort of Thurston Howell III vibe that put Keyser off (as it turns out, he’s married to the great granddaughter of Theodore Roosevelt, ooh). Basically, he thought Weld was one of those snooty upper-crust North Eastern Republicans who are basically Democrats but think that coming out and actually being a Democrat is some form of slumming. Silber, on the other hand, seemed to be made of sterner stuff, and got Keyser’s vote. As usual, the electors of the Commonwealth proved to be wronged headed (who in his right mind would vote for George McGovern?), and Weld became governor.

Well, now we see that Weld, along with a whole gamut of high-brow supposed Republicans, has come out in favor of Obama. Keyser has been too distracted by death threats from Tony’s Troopers to comment on this, but since the threats seem to be dying down, this would appear to be a good moment to animadvert to this phenomenon. Here is Weld’s reasoning:

Hillary Is Finished

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

A few hours ago Hillary mentioned to a local rag in South Dakota that having the campaign go into June would be okay as both her husband’s and Robert Kennedy’s campaign went into June.   That would be the same Robert Kennedy who was assassinated and the DNC in 1968.   The web is buzzing, as are the MSM talking heads, over the hidden message  that she is sticking around incase Obama (PBUH) gets whacked.   Check out her comment:

Whatever Hillary meant to say why would she have invoked the memory of RFK?  Hillary’s campaign is in full damage control mode but it’s too late (you can see Hillary’s attempt at an explanation here btw).  The Saturday papers will run with this and all the uncommitted Superdelegates will run to Obama (PBUH).   Obama (PBUH), who only needs 70ish more superdelegates to win, will have this campaign in the bag by next Monday or my name isn’t Reginald Reginaldson.   May the best man win.

Read more here, here, and here.

Update: CNN just reported that HRC made the same comment to Time Magazine.

Scott Adams Fears for His Life, Settles on "Hay-soos"

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

This week, Scott Adams, creator of the comic strip “Dilbert,” inserted into his strip the character of “Jesus.” Surely no one would notice.

Let me admit that I’ve always found “Dilbert” to be as bland as a cold, baked potato. The drawing could be significantly improved and the humor is usually lacking. The character Dilbert somehow speaks while lacking a mouth and his tie looks like it’s in a state of perpetual erection. Perhaps Viagara has expanded its clientèle.

The office where Dilbert works employs a talking dog. Talking animals in comic strips is not an original concept.

This week, Adams caught on to the old idea that if one wants instant publicity and fame, he could do no better than mock Christianity and Catholicism. (For an example of this, see the band Marilyn Manson.) Adams spends the week inserting a character named “Jesus” (but pronounced Hay-soos — get it?) into his strips. (I guess it’s routine for the founder of Christianity to help smooth things along in your local cubicle.)

Below is “Jesus” making himself useful:

Surprisingly, Adams received quite a response. At his website, Adams wrote:

My favorite rhetorical question, which I received an alarming number of times, was “Why don’t you mock Mohammed next? Huh? Why not?”

Well, aside from the blindingly obvious reason that I prefer life over death, I didn’t realize I was making fun of Christianity this week. It’s a standard cartoon practice to take well-known historical or fictional stories and put other characters in those roles. I did the same thing with The Wizard of Oz, and no one thought I was insulting Dorothy.

[Emphasis inserted.]

Jesus. Dorothy. Same thing.

I am not so much bothered by Adams’s use of Jesus in his strips so much as the double standard he employs. (And if you’re resorting to drawing “Jesus” with a tie at the local office, then you’re probably lacking in good judgment and running out of ideas very quickly.)

At a time when Adams wisely acknowledges the sensitivity of mocking the founders of religions, he safely selects the one which will generate the least amount of problems. Perhaps next week, Adams can begin drawing writing strips about Dilbert’s courage. Certainly Dilbert must be more courageous than his creator.
