Tennessee has it all figured out.

Posted by That Other Mike on 14/04/2012

Or at least that’s the implication; they must have it all figured out, otherwise why would they waste their time on this crap?

That’s right, the Tennessee Senate is working on making sure that their kids don’t experiment with dangerous gateway activities like hand-holding, heavy petting and kissing, because intimacy kills. Or something.

Let’s just ignore the fact that abstinence-only education doesn’t work, that it’s inherently discriminatory towards LGBT kids, and that it’s mired in sexism, because maybe this will be the bill which actually makes kids in TN realise that doing teh sexytime without a ring on your finger will straight up murder you.

And, hey, who knows? Maybe this will work, against all expectations in the reality-based community, and Tennesseans will breed themselves out of existence. Or not breed, in this case.

Yet more evidence that birtherism rots your brain.

Posted by That Other Mike on 16/09/2011

Ockham’s Razor, you wingnut imbeciles; if several explanations for a phenomenon are present, the simpler is preferred.

To wit;

Wingnut Imbecile Theory – Obama’s SS number is fraudulent and this proves there is a massive, decades-long conspiracy encompassing all levels of government and involving both major political parties in the US at all levels.

Sane Intelligent Theory – idiots like Orly Taitz, Jerome Corsi, Gregory Hollister and Linda Jordan have splashed Obama’s SS number around the internet enough that he had a new one issued by the SS Administration.

Hmmm. Which is more plausible? The unsupported frothing of a bunch of ignorant cretins, or a simple administrative procedure?

Moe Lane is a fucking idiot.

Posted by That Other Mike on 10/08/2011

Moe Lane is a fucking idiot. That’s pretty well it, to be honest.

Actually, no, just a couple more points:

  1. Keynesian economics works, unlike the supply-side bullshit people like you keep pimping. The evidence? Post-WWII boom, for one.
  2. The US economy is routinely better in every respect under Democrats than Republicans.
  3. Moe is a partisan hack. I know, it goes without saying, but sometimes you just need to state it again for the record.

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.

A nest of idiots

Posted by That Other Mike on 26/04/2011

That’s really all I have to say about Larry Wells and his coterie of morons. You really can’t fix stupid, can you?

ETA: Wait, here’s another one. 90% of the commenters there seem to be infected with birther stupidity.

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.

Silly birthers

Posted by That Other Mike on 04/04/2011

Actually, yes, you are crazy. And pretty stupid, too – elected officials are not Federal employees, so your “gotcha!” plan is doomed from the start. Still, hope you have fun humiliating yourselves; you’re quite good at it by now. Practice makes perfect, after all, and you have all had a lot of practice making fools of yourselves over the past couple of years.

Silly birthers!

I was going to come up with some kind of witty wordplay for this title, but eventually I settled on just calling Jeannie DeAngelis a fucking idiot

Posted by That Other Mike on 03/04/2011

Because she is one.

Shorter Jeannie DeAngelis, American Stinker, “Hugo Parrots Michelle”
Michelle Obama urges people to eat better and exercise more, but she once ate ribs! While on vacation! Obviously she’s a fat ass. Also, you know who also wants people to eat healthier? Hugo Chavez! Clearly, Michelle Obama is not only a fat ass, but a fat ass socialist who wants to destroy America! Aiiieeee!

Honestly. The Stinker isn’t exactly known for being thoughtful, relevant, fair or even comprehensible outside of wingnut country, but this plumbs a new depth of irrelevance and fuckwittery.

So there’s been a shitstorm at Balloon Juice…

Posted by That Other Mike on 21/01/2011

Balloon Juice, a blog I read regularly and fail to keep up with adequately because it moves so fast, has been experiencing one of its periodic shitstorms. Oh, Teh Dramas!!!!One!!111!Eleventy!!!

Said shitstorm having occurred because the Angry Black Lady (who frontpages there as well) posted calling out a diarist at FireDogLake (the mothership for the execrable Jane Hamsher and her army of emogressive goons) for having used the term “House Nigger” (later redacted to “House n****r” at the behest of the FDL modbots). Linkage here, here and here.

Said shitstorm then proceded to get into full swing at B-J, with various commenters agreeing with ABL (although some were dicks while doing it, which just shows that you can be right and be a fuckstick simultaneously) and others disagreeing and mostly being fucksticks as well. Basically, it was a shitstorm of fucksticks, which is something the more visually-oriented among you might wish not to think abo-Oh, too late for you. Enjoy that image.

While the shitstorm was occurring, people were arguing about what constituted racism, whether racism ever occurs against white people, if “cracker” is racist and so on, to which I answer: being dicks to other people because of their race, yes it does, and yes it is, albeit not anywhere near on the same scale of offensiveness as “nigger”.

The author of the shitstorm-provoking diary came in and made a non-apology apology and defended himself, things generally went to hell. A disaster of biblical proportions, real wrath of God type stuff, fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes… The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

Anyway, throughout this whole thing, while ABl was being slandered and non-topics were being discussed and accusations of racism were being slung around, nobody thought to look back at the main issue, so in the interests of educating my fellow human beans, here it is:

Of course it isn’t OK for white people to use the word “nigger” as any kind of pejorative, even if it’s a metaphorical pejorative like “House Nigger”. How fucking stupid are you that you think that’s OK? Especially you people calling yourselves progressives and liberals; shame on you even for asking.

Jesus wept. I hope none of you ever go outside again, the effort of avoiding being killed by running into stationary objects would probably cause you all massive brain haemorrhages.

I can’t believe I just had to write 400-odd words explaining this. What are you people, anyway, chickens? This shouldn’t even be a discussion. I’m only writing about it because I’m public spirited.
