Laffs and Surprises; Out of My Mind for 18 August 2009

I agree with that vile piece of garbage, Ted Nugent about this — but then, I would.

Another newspaper that won’t be missed. This is inexcuseable editorial ineptitude.

Actually, by and by, U.S. papers are pretty crappy. Read here what’s better, and what they should be.

I did declare meaningful healthcare reform dead, didn’t I? Obama did too! So who cares now whether it passes? The final bill will be garbage and probably will make things worse, certainly not better. After all, pretty much all that will be left will be compulsory coverage. That is, more people will be allowed to pay premiums to the insurers so they can be denied necessary coverage. It takes a sick mind to consider that reform, sick or a lying sacking of shit. Thank God, Barack Obama is president! And Mr. President, thank you and the MSM for reinvigorating the GOP: now needed more than ever. Assholes. Had the traitors on the ropes…. It was great giving a mandate to a Dem president so he could let GOPers and rightist Dems call the shots….

The public option: Back from the dead or did the House fail to get the news of its death?

Professor Krugman has his little obit for healthcare reform here. I only beg to differ on his point that Team Obama failed to comprehend the importance to progressives of a public option. Until proven otherwise, I believe, Obama personally doesn’t care. All he cares about is re-election and leaving office wealthy and lionized. Fool me once…. Attention, Mr. President: That’s one lousy reason to be president. The only way you’ll get re-elected is McCain/Palin redux because you’ll have a series of inexcuseable failures and the nation will be in the midst of the second dip of a W-shaped recession, thanks to your efforts.

This might be nice: The lack of a public option will may doom Obamacare.

This does worry me: How will the leftist journalism and bloggery  survive?

Wingnuts: Delusional. Liberals: Droning in denial. (And another example is here. You know, the market for bullshit has, like, eclipsed the old market for truth….)

The perverse genius of Niall Ferguson: Slammed for writing lead paragraphs can be interpreted by readers as racist, he bleats about his proof that the allusion was not a racist one wrong. His focus is, ultimately, on proving he isn’t a racist nor was the writing meant to be racist. Completely ignored is main issue: How did readers perceive the writing at issue. Ferguson deliberately ignores that to distract with his being. Well, I’m sorry, writings are, well, rad; a reader does not investigate the writer to double-check his intent and mentality, etc., as they read. It is this deep stupidity that is one of the things I so hate about the modern conservative. Or more simply, he is utterly dishonest, full of shit. As Professor K says, the turd is simply a poseur. Given his dishonesty, his intellectualism is shallow and false. Professor K provides an example of his shallowness, his willingness to substitute glibness for, you know, actual knowledge. Perhaps he can be sent back to his country….

Jeb Bush had his own bubble.

Proof that the wingnuts hate America.

Hotter than Palin (to me, at least).

Incredible! Most companies that back-dates did not get caught!

Let’s get justice for a genius driven to death by haters.

How to get high: Snort your money. Really. A possible explanation for the mania on Wall Street — it’s not just greed??

Let’s mangle us some English!

Now for a little topical humor for the young people (and young at heart):

I love this song, perfect Reggae-ish beat for the heat and sweetly melancholic lyrics:
