And when was the last time you held a real job, Jeremy? A real job that actually involved trying to help people and improve their lives? Oh, that’s right – you’ve been presenting Top Gear since 1988.

Defend her all you want, Bill, she’s still not going to sleep with you

Sarah Palin at home, about to tuck into a bowl of tasty word salad


Shorter Colonel Mustard, Legal Infection, So Now All These People Will Apologize to Sarah Palin About Paul Revere, Right?
There is nothing I won’t do to defend Sarah Palin! The fact that she accidentally glommed onto an obscure footnote about Paul Revere proves that she’s really smart, just like I’d said all along.  I told you it wasn’t just random word salad like everyone said.  Someone get her a MacArthur Genius Grant, stat!

Seriously, Billy Boy? Sarah Palin hits upon something truthful-ish by accident while in one of her trances of echo- and glossolalia about once every couple of years1.

I’ve known parrots with a better conversational hit rate than that, and you’ve ignored the actual point here. I don’t know why I’m surprised about it; you’re frequently disingenuous and paint a false picture to your readers.

In light of that, it’s no wonder you have a major crush on Palin; she is an uneducated liar and grifter who tries to fake her way through life and politics, after all, which is really the point – see here, here, here and here if you want documentary evidence.

We shouldn’t be surprised if she occasionally tells the truth by accident, as per the old saw about stopped clocks, but it would be far more suprising if she ever did it on purpose. Your attempted defence of her is frankly embarrassing; trying to portray Sarah Palin as educated, smart and politically savvy just marks you as a fanboy with a crush, and you should be ashamed of yourself.


1Amusingly, there is also a condition called Palilia, defined as
the repetition or echoing of one’s own spoken words

which would seem to fit. It’s most frequently seen in sufferers of Tourette’s, although, of course, absent a diagnosis, it would be foolish to attribute to illness that which can be attributed to being a fucking idiot.

On the way out? You should be so lucky, Bibleboy…

Shorter Joey Nelson, Spiritual Questions
Is Evolution On Its Way Out?
My strawmen, let me show you them.

I’m somewhat in awe of Joey Nelson’s post – I’ve never seen so many misconceptions, ignorance and plain old FAIL about evolution gathered together in one place before. Even AiG can’t do it as well as Joey has here.

Joey has taken internet discourse to a whole new level – by writing a post which actually fisks itself.

That is teh awesum.

Oh, my sides!

Posted by That Other Mike on 10/04/2009

My aching sides… If I laughed any harder, I’d give myself some kind of hernia and internal bleeding.

I was going to write a detailed critique of the ridiculousness of Joey Nelson’s post here, but I think it speaks for itself.

Next up, definitive proof that Harry Potter really, really can do magic!
