Your name is freaking Rothschild, you jackass

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild says:

This is a hard decision for me personally because, frankly, I don’t like [Obama]. I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.

As Kevin K. says, “I’ll look around the web for video of The Most Hypocritical Thing Ever Uttered on Television and allow all of you adequate time to scrape your jaws off the floor…”

If there was ever proof needed that “elitist” in Obama’s case is code for “uppity” (just like in Hillary’s case it would have been “bitchy” and in Edwards’ case it was “getting rich then refusing to fuck the poor”), this is it.

This is how John McCain wants to negotiate with Iran: On McCain’s differences with Obama regarding Iran: “I don’t think that it would be appropriate to sit down, without pre-condition, with President Ahmadinejad of Iran, who has said his nation is dedicated to the extinction of the state of Israel. If President Ahmadinejad said, ‘I want to sit down so that I can tell you after the meeting that I’m going to respect the right…


Shorter K-Lo: The good woman is the dead woman

By Amanda Marcotte

From Hugo, I found this absolutely repugnant post from K-Lo defining the “good girl” and the ideal trajectory through life you need to take to achieve feminine perfection. It’s a sad story, of course, because a woman’s lot is fundamentally sad in the eyes of the patriarchy that defines the…


NJ: GOP web site – ‘Obama loves America like OJ loved Nicole?’

By pams

Ho-ly sh*t. Thank goodness for the folks at Blue Jersey, who did a screen cap of this bit of good taste in race relations before someone at the Pemberton and Burlington County GOP decided to do a little scrubbing of its web site. Jason Springer of Blue Jersey: Ah, what…


Decidedly Not Fascism

By Jesse Taylor

Dick Cheney, our fourth branch of government (it’s true – it’s in the Constitution right after Taco Bar Tuesday), does something which is in no way deserving of criticism or rebuke as a step towards fascism. Members of Vice President Cheney’s staff censored congressional testimony by a top federal official…


Thoughts That Have Never Been Thought

By Jesse Taylor

I don’t know what’s more impressive: that it took two of David Brooks’ newer, awesomer conservatives to write this Weekly Standard piece about McCain selling his agenda of tax cuts and nothing but as putting money in the pockets of average Americans, or the fact that they managed to stumble…



By Jesse Taylor

Hullabaloo on Maverick McMaverick being held accountable for the fact that his campaign is an M.C. Escher painting: Obama being of by a dollar will equal McCain being off by ten trillion, and the pundits will excoriate both – while always reminding everyone that McCain is a hero who served…


Who could have predicted?

By auguste

That paying $1.6 billion for a business with essentially no revenue stream might lead to difficulties? It’s not like we’ve ever seen anything like that before – especially not involving the internet. Update: Okay, “essentially no” is probably too strong a descriptor. “Tenuous and difficult to expand” is more like…


Just the kind of coverage the GOP doesn’t want for its convention

By pams

Can you get it any better than this? The headline in the Chicago Sun-Times – Airport stall may return to spotlight: Sen. Craig’s hook-up site on view for GOP convention-goers. Thousands of members of the international media will have to walk past it when they land at the Minneapolis-St. Paul…


The big 4-5

By pams

   I turned 45 today. I’m long in the tooth for this blogging stuff, eh? All those young whippersnapper bloggers out there…hey, at least I use a computer and know what “the Google” is, unlike a certain someone running for president. Anyway — aren’t those pictures embarrassing? What was my…
