Hey citizens. Just wanted to warm the fingers up while I have some lunch before writing a piece on — shockingly — Syria. Charles and I were just chatting about how interesting it is to realize that our leadership in this country had to rely on subterfuge to push the idea that we as a country have simply been too long powerful and a “source of destruction” in the world and must now be taken down a peg. Because progressive thinking presupposes that people are just kind of dumb and don’t realize what’s in their own best interest. “It’s hiding the medicine in the cheese,” Charles said. So insulting. Also, um, I don’t know about anyone else, but I like to win, not be given a trophy for participation (which, to my mind, is pretty much the essence of socialist thinking). And this idea that you can’t be first without being a jerk is just starting to piss me off. There is such a thing as an ethical and moral leader. And does anyone think a thug from Russia has our best interests at heart? Because I’m telling you, at the end of the day, that is what’s at stake here. But you just go ahead and debate whether Ben Affleck will make a good batman and how atheists are the only smart people EVAR. Seriously, do that. Go outside and play. The adults are trying to talk.
On that subject, Media Matters is my favorite. You mention Putin, you love him. Period.
This is from a while ago, but I think her show is getting ready to air, so Twitchy was promoting this Twitter rant from Ace on Meghan McCain and her brilliant musings on the youth and their inability to be responsible enough to have the news. I seriously cried laughing. Also, that kinda-friend I’ve written about? Loved him some Meghan McCain, because that’s the level of intellectual discourse that turned him on I guess (well, that and the bleachy blonde boob thing I think). I’m not trying to be mean and vindictive — just finally feeling objective about it and it was hilarious at the time and I felt mean pointing it out then. But my God, really? I mean, I’m not even sure she takes herself seriously…

Man, it’s gonna get ugly. I admire anyone willing to go up against these domestic character assassins. I mean if you can make Mitt Romney out to be immoral, you’re doing something.
It might be sacrilege to suggest any of this, except the part about bread and butter pickles because, yeah, they’re gross.

I love that someone does this. Because honestly, this is bringing laughter to people’s worlds. And I really believe we’re supposed to do that in whatever way we can. I guess that sounds kind of dumb but I mean it…
Alright, I have to be all serious and thoughtful and brilliant now. Wish me luck.
