Since approximately 1980, people (well, and Big Media) have gotten like exponentially dumber and, pardon the expression, stupider. Think I’m wrong? Brit spook’s cover blown, by his wive, on Facebook. How stupid do you have to be to do that, or to marry someone stupid enough to do that?
This is why the speculation bubble must be reinflated.
So, as I was saying about Palin and the continuing need to, well, dis her: She’s stupid, crazy and can yet get elected president. (Me, I’ve stopped underestimating the American voter.) Here is what I believe is the latest insanity from the bitch: crazy tweets (or “twats” — I didn’t make that up) and insane threats of lawsuits.
I’m sick of the government-can’t-do-anything-better-than-the-private-sector meme. As if recent history shouldn’t have put the lie to that one. and the health insurers’ lies that public insurance must suck has been disproved for, oh, about fifty years now: it’s called Medicare. Anyway, this guy also thinks they’re full of shit too.
I somewhat generally, but cautiously, disagree with this guy but this time I think he nails the reprecussions of the Mumbai attacks. Short version: Not good for us and, I’d daresay, a victory for the Islamofascists, specifically the anti-Westerners in charge of our — correction: Our Leaders’ — allies, Pakistan.
Suggestion: Tell the Pakis absolutely no weapons or military support til they get with the programs again. And allow India its pound of flesh. You: contrition and cooperation.
I happen to have fairly low standards but this offends even me. Particularly, DC Comics (home of Superman and “The Dark Knight”) has suffered recently from a stupid, creatively weak editorial regime. To that mediocrity (in the deepest, most profound sense), editorial has now added gross, stupid tastelessness. (Click on the image for a little more, if you care.)
