There is institutionalised cowardice at the top of the party and it is now wholly and evidently enabling and supporting a fascist stae[sic].

THIS is how it happened in Nazi Germany, Its over.

The Number of the Beast 72-25

Seriously, man, you can’t make this shit up.

I can just see the NYT’s headline now: Alito Confirmed – Women, Minorities Hardest Hit.

Meanwhile, I’ll rely on my good buddy Sgt. Hulka: “Lighten up, Francis.”

Suck it long, suck it deep, suck it hard. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the next Supreme Court Justice, Judge Samuel Anthony Alito, Jr.

You feel that sting big boy? That’s pride, fucking with your head.

Last week it came out that Cindy Sheehan threatened Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) that she would run against her if she didn’t join in filibustering Judge Alito. It worked on poor ol’ DiFi as she did a complete 180 and announced, after previously saying she saw no reason to, her support for a filibuster; however, it created the spark, nay, a brief moment in time, a split-second really where Cindy Sheehan supporters went from enjoying this gesture to thinking this would be a great thing to actually happen.

This is it folks. This is that millionth of second of silence that precedes a thermonuclear warhead before it destroys all life within 50 square miles.

This is the singularity.

And the best part is that they have a WEBSITE!! Man, I’m getting shivers. More cowbell, people, more cowbell!!

Without further ado, I give you Cindy For Senate.

Yet Another Sign That The Hamas Victory Was Really a “Letting the Mask Drop” Moment… January 30, 2006, 12:46 pm

al-Reuters is reporting this morning that Arab neighbors will work with Hamas led cabinet:

All the Arab governments around Israel will deal directly with a Palestinian cabinet dominated by the militant Islamist group Hamas, ignoring U.S. and European attempts to isolate the group, analysts said on Monday.

The Egyptian and Syrian governments already have good working relationships with Hamas, although some of their main domestic opponents are Islamists, and would accept a possible role as intermediaries between Hamas and the West, they added.

Egypt may press Hamas to make concessions to demands that it recognize Israel and abandon armed struggle but it will also use Hamas’s surprise election victory to argue for changes in U.S. and European policy in the Middle East, they said.

Not that it should really shock anyone who has been paying to attention to the Middle East for the last 30 years, but if there was really any hope that the US and EU would get help in isolating Hamas, it was based on folly and general ignorance of history. Still, it’s nice to see it in a newspaper that Egypt and Syria have “good working relationships” with Hamas. That’s something that used to be downplayed because it was seen as a BAD THING to be tight with Hamas. It’s the same reason why I always kept my connections with the Branch Davidians on the down low. We be tight and all, but those guys are CRAZY and it’s not something you want to go shouting from the rooftops of the world, if you know what I mean.

Steyn’s Sunday Column… January 29, 2006, 10:46 pm

Great column as always, containing this absolute gem:

For example, Mariam Farahat, a mother of three, was elected in Gaza. She used to be a mother of six but three of her sons self-detonated on suicide missions against Israel. She’s a household name to Palestinians, known as Um Nidal — Mother of the Struggle — and, at the rate she’s getting through her kids, the Struggle’s all she’ll be Mother of.

Man, that’s some funny stuff. So do yourself a favor and read it all.

Well Would You Look at That – Another Lawmaker Shows a Complete Misunderstanding of the Third Branch of Government January 28, 2006, 9:24 pm

Hillary!TM decided to open her mouth today, joining the chorus of idiots who can’t count and support the filibuster of Alito. However, it’s her complete confusion about the role of the Supreme Court that I find the most disconcerting.

From the New York Daily News:

Sen. Hillary Clinton yesterday backed a rebel band of Senate Dems seeking to filibuster a vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Samuel Alito. Democratic leaders had warned that filibuster efforts were going nowhere and would let President Bush score easy political points, but Clinton said, “I oppose his nomination and support efforts to block his confirmation.”

“I do not think Judge Alito would advance the principles Americans hold most dear,” she said, adding she would vote against a move to cut off a filibuster should one occur.

Where exactly does this sort of thinking come from? Being stupid doesn’t count in this case because there are many smart people who would agree with her. Look people, and for my liberal friends I’ll speak slowly and use simple words so as to avoid any confusion, the supreme court isn’t supposed to “advance” anything, much less anything as ambiguous or ever changing as “principles that Americans hold most dear.” Their job is perhaps the simplest (not easy, mind you, just simple) job in all of government: they look at the cases in front of them and simply rule them constitutional or unconstitutional using citations from the Constitution itself or federal law. They are not supposed to create law. They are not supposed to forward anything. They are not the players of the game; they are only the referees.

If Hillary!TM wants to advance anything, she’s in luck because she is a legislator and, holy crap, that’s her job!! Unfortunately, it’s not the job of the Supreme Court.

From John Kerry’s email yesterday, written from the economic conference at Davos, encouraging and supporting the filibuster of Judge Alito:

People can say all they want that “elections have consequences.” Trust me, I understand. 

Heh.

situation: roommate has a phone number of a friend of a friend to go out on a blind date.

roommate: so I’m going to give this chick a call.

me: whoa, wait a second, what are you going to say?

roommate: I’m not sure.

me: WHAT?!?! You can’t do that. You have to have talking points or something, a plan of what to talk about.

roommate: I have a plan…but…but the plan sucks!

me: (laughing uncontrollably)

blog readers: *crickets chirping*

me: I guess it’s one of those “have to be there” type moments. But thanks for making me feel awkward.  Dicks.

You may remember a story from last week regarding the Bush administration’s attempts to get porno querying habits from search engine companies like Yahoo, MSN and Google. (Full disclosure: don’t waste time trying to track me down; Quinto uses the search string “thai+asian+slut” regularly and often. What’s the matter? So I like the Asian girls, sue me.) Yahoo and MSN complied and Google told the feds to get bent:

Google on Thursday rebuffed the Bush administration’s attempt in federal court to force it to hand over search-engine data on millions of customers. The Justice Department asked a federal judge in San Jose on Wednesday for an order to turn over the records as part of the adminstration’s efforts to revive a controversial online pornography law. The issue is expected to be resolved by March. Google has already refused to comply with a subpoena, issued in August, to turn over a mountain of material, including all requests entered into Google’s search engine from any one-week period and 1 million randomly selected websites from Google databases. Rival search engines Yahoo and Microsoft’s MSN have cooperated with the government. But Google, the world’s largest search engine, opposes releasing the information because it says that doing so would reveal trade secrets and that the information requested is not relevant to the government’s case.

BTW, this is one of those issues that drives me batty with the Republican party. Can’t we leave this BS nanny state stuff to the Democrats? Oh no, there’s porn to be found on the Internet! So what! Let parents do their jobs and stay out of people’s lives with this stuff.
