Stupid article, or stupidest article?

Posted by That Other Mike on 28/12/2011

I was going to comment extensively on this phenomenally stupid article at the American Stinker, but S,N! already has it covered, and I’m suffering a cold, so I won’t.

All I can think to add is that, even after years of reading stupid articles by inarticulate morons looking to hit every talking point given by their wingnut masters, I can still be surprised by the depths that can be plumbed by our rightwing press.

The stupidity of wingnuts – abortion edition

Posted by That Other Mike on 16/12/2011

The stupidity of wingnuts never ceases to amaze me — for a group of people who seem so ready to castigate centrists and leftists as emotionally-led, over-empathetic, bleeding hearts, they do love to push some idiotic and lookatthefoetushowcute laws when it comes to abortion, not a single one of which has any foundation but emotion, whether it’s misplaced paternalism or jesus-pleasin’.

It just so profoundly illustrates something I’ve mentioned before — the American Right has elevated idiocy to an art form and an article of veneration. Even worse, though, is that they have also somehow managed to convince themselves that their particular brand of stupid is actually wise and clever; remember how the Palinistas tried to market her as some kind of canny operator, full of homespun wisdom? Yeah, exactly, and just like with Palin, they will fail every time.

Yet more evidence that birtherism rots your brain

Posted by That Other Mike on 16/11/2011

Apparently, according to this cretin, the 9-year-old Barack Obama was an expert in Indonesian constitutional law.

Once again, birthers are proving to all and sundry that it’s not about the Constitution, it’s not about the law, it’s about trying to take down a democratically-elected President that they don’t like.

Whatever their reasons may be, they want to usurp the Presidency and subvert the democratic process because they dislike the man holding the office, and this just proves once more that there is no level to which they will not sink, no straw which they will not grab, no lie which they will not tell, if they think that there is the slightest possibility of hurting Obama politically.

Yet more evidence that birtherism rots your brain

Posted by That Other Mike on 29/10/2011

Shorter cretins at the American Stinker:
Waaah! The President’s a black man and we don’t like it!

Some things are so transparently stupid that to deal with them reasonably and rationally only elevates them; an example being the cretinous nonsense being peddled by this writer and the commenters.

The Epitome of Stupid

Posted by That Other Mike on 31/05/2011

Everything the Fellowship of "Minds" believes in one handy sign. .


Shorter Eowyn, Fellowship of Fuckwits, Obama Hires New Minister of Propaganda:
ZOMG! Obama has someone on his staff whose job is to respond to negative news stories! Although every President for the last century has tried to maintain a positive image in the media, it’s completely different with Obama for some reason (although it’s totally not racial, honest!), which absolutely justifes my spurious Nazi comparisons!

That place is pretty vile – dubious articles by moronic right-wing nutjobs espousing as much extremism as they can get away with, birtherism, Beckism, and generalised racism and bigotry towards anyone who’s not a White, Christian Fundamentalist.

In short, teabaggers.

Pretend Constitutionalists Who Haven’t Read The Document They Slaver Over

Posted by That Other Mike on 09/05/2011

Stupid wingnuts are stupid.

[The President] by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone […].

Some fucking Constitutionalists you are; if you’re going to quote portions of the Constitution, you might want to actually read through to the end of the paragraph, you halfwits. The Bill in question simply allows the President to appoint certain Federal officers without having to go via the Senate. This is an entirely Constitutional idea which should also be entirely uncontroversial, but apparently we live in a time where moronic right-wing bloggers froth at the mouth over the President’s choice of breakfast cereal and how it reveals him to be a secret Marxist.

Rightbloggers on the Death of Osama Bin Laden: Eh, No Big Whoop. Thanks, President Bush!

Posted by That Other Mike on 02/05/2011

Roy Edroso has a great round-up of the initial reactions from the wingnutosphere to the Big News.

Go and read it, it’s rather telling. It certainly gives a glimpse into the tortured tribalism of the wingnut mind – everything bad is Obama, everything good is Republican.

Go Fuck Yourself, San Diego

Posted by That Other Mike on 02/05/2011

In a move designed to illustrate just exactly how classy and grown up a bunch they are, the cretins over at Protein Wisdom are falling all over themselves to find some way to criticise Obama in the wake of his announcement last night, and to try to turn what amounts to a massive political gain into a failure.

Given the average intelligence of the posters and commentators in that nest of idiocy, they’re not doing so well. One of the frontpagers, a scumbucket by the name of Darleen Click1 made an excruciatingly stupid post that literally had my jaw hanging open for a few seconds while I tried to comprehend what she was doing.

Had Darleen sat down to write the post and had a catastrophic brain haemmorhage? Had her fingers begun to dance over the keyboard when she was struck by a falling rock, with the subsequent TBI explaining the lack of mental process?

A cusory scan of the front page over at Protein Wisdom reveals that, sadly, Darleen is this stupid all the time. The great wonder of it is not that she manages to blog, but that she does so and remembers to breathe at the same time.

1Darleen is a shitsack whose chief claim to fame is the execrable and excremental cartoon called Rape of Liberty, in which President Obama is compared to a rapist. Stay classy, Darleen; nothing like some racist rape jokes to make you a respected pillar of the community.

Silly Birthers

Posted by That Other Mike on 09/04/2011

Can you spot the anti-Obama "Birther"?Silly birthers! Unless your parents are diplomats, parentage is irrelevant for determining natural-born citizenship.

Your arguments are ridiculous, and completely unsupported by the law, case rulings and the Constitution. Still, that’s never stopped you before.

And as to Trump’s letter to the NYT – well, it’s hardly Presidential material, is it? It reads more like a snarky adolescent taking potshots at someone who’s outdone him in a debate.

Then again, it’s not really an issue, is it? The Donald (and his Tribble) will never be President. He’s simply concern trolling to boost ratings for his failing TV show, and I would lay good money on his never filing to run for office; he’s probably too busy being an aging roué with ever more ridiculous hair. Hey, Donald – with all the money you currently have (until the next time you run your business into the ground!), you could at least fork out a few dollars for a mirror or two.
