Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

7.6.06

So ... much ... anger ...

Number One: Why does Ann Coulter make a ton of money when she makes statements like that when other people who make statements like that are wandering around under bridges peeing into their own hands and wearing tin foil on their heads?

Number Two: Colin Cowherd today called Jason Grimsley a rat today on the radio. He wasn't bashing Grimsley, who apparently has named a bunch of names of baseball players who take or took steroid and human growth hormone, but he did call him a rat. Anyone who calls Grimsley a rat and says what happens in the clubhouse is stays in the clubhouse is an idiot. I've heard various sports people say that this will make people think twice about confiding in their teammates. Guess what? They're breaking the law! It should make them think twice about cheating and breaking the law. This is what happens when we elevate sports and entertainment figures above every other single person in our society.

Shit like this makes me so grumpy. Is it too late to move to Mars?

"The atmosphere on Mars consists of 95% carbon dioxide, 3% nitrogen, 1.6% argon, and contains traces of oxygen and water. "

Don't think you'd like it anymore than I like Ann Coulter, which is to say, it would be very unChristian to ask someone to kneecap her.

You know, I used to be against mandatory IQ testing, but in Ms. Coulter's case...

She's the right wing's performing monkey. Since she's a tall skinny blonde, she can get away with saying things that, coming from the mouth of a fat old man, would evoke terror.

She's not really a pundit; she's an entertainer, a cheerleader for the parts of America that secretly crave jackboots and beating down them what ain't like us.

I can't take her seriously. Taking her seriously makes her stronger. Calling her a tool and writing her off as irrelevant saps her power.

Most importantly, she is irrelevant, since she only preaches to her side. You can't win people over to your side doing what she does. She's a morale booster for the jingoists, nothing more.

If the far right wants to lie to themselves about the world, and have some twit tell them what they want to hear so they can sleep warm at night, assured that the world really is as simple as they think it is, fine. There's no law against being a fucktard whose political views are shaped by Chuck Norris movies and wishful thinking.

It's disheartening to realize how many people are like that, though.

I know I should ignore her, and I certainly try, but it's bugs me that she actually showed up on Today. I know NBC is just trying to get ratings, but real conservatives can't like her, can they? People bash liberals for liking Michael Moore, who's a bit of a trained monkey himself, but even Moore isn't filled with so much hate.

Sigh. Even with Roger's information, Mars might be nicer.

I do try to ignore the Coulter/Rush/O'Reilly ego and hate parade, but sometimes they make it hard. I was kind of hoping this comment might be the one that turns the tide, but the fact is her red-meat posturing has an audience out there. Just glad that I'm not part of it.

Ann Coulter is our National Village Idiot. And this puts her very high on the list of Global Village Idiots.
