And Now, For Dessert

For dessert, if you have not had your fill of bullshit this week, both sides are offering us a complimentary and tasty shit sandwich.

Hugh Hewitt is quoting George Soros and Michael Moore as proof that liberals really are pussies who want therapy for terrorists and who do everything they can to put our troops in danger. I am almost afraid to check Malkin on this, for I fear she might be doing a fund-raising drive for liberal internment camps.

On the other side, Hunter at the Daily Kos is calling Karl Rove a traitor, amid blaming him for the Plame scandal (what is the status of the Plame case?) and calling for him to resign. I fully understand why Democrats are pissed at Rove, but let’s just stop with the traitor talk. By everyone. Pretty please?

Someone please make it all stop. Maybe Jay Caruso has the right idea- no political blogging over the summer. He has some drums for sale, btw, in case you are tired of beating your head off the desk and want to try something new.

Sorry for the foul language.

    May I suggest a nice innocent movie thread? Or fave TV show thread? I am done with the politics for today. Washing it all down with the cheap scotch I found hidden in the back of the cabinet.

    The Island looks cool.

    None of these people have any shame. It’s all about money and power. Most of them truly do not care about anything else. Take this story about the Congressman from N. San Diego Co who appears to be in the pocket of local businessman.

    Hell, nobody in the House, not even the Ds, will even file a complaint with the Ethics Committee. Maybe if he gets indicted, but I won’t hold my breath.

    I really can’t take much more of this. Maybe I should watch Animal Planet all summer and give up reading blogs. At least my blood pressure would probably go down.

    See, this is why I normally blog humorously- I get tired of anal wankery of the blogosphere, especially when you’re talking about people like Hugh Hewitt, who think the Washington Post is going to be eventually replaced by Instapundit.

    I recommend registering as an independent. It’s a great way of clearing the palate after being on a forced diet of shit sandwiches. (“Now with extra bile!”)

    The only time I miss being a Republican (or regret not being a Democrat) is when I can’t vote against a particularly obnoxious twit in a primary. And there’s such an unending supply of them too . . .

    Yep John Cole, the Democrats should just just sit by and take Rove’s remarks with a grain of salt and not say anything, right? Even though Rove’s remarks were infinitely more offensive than Durbin’s, the Dems should not “lower the discourse” and give Rove the Durbin treatment, right?

    Fer shit’s sake, I know this sounds like the “he started it” defense but what can the Dems to but lash out. The Repubs do it, they lashed out at the way Durbin described Gitmo and the story is Durbin, not Gitmo. I guess that’s the way the game is played. Like it or not, that’s what the media focused on.

    Why shouldn’t the Dems target Rove with as much “over the top” retoric as possible. It never seems to fail as a tactic for Republicans.

    And Rove is infinitely more despicable that Durbin.

    NO, Demcorats shouldn’t have to take it. I just want it all to stop.

    You must come to accept and welcome Political Armegeddon, John. We need Dennis Kucinich versus Judge Roy Moore in 2008. It’s the only way to Serenity.

    The reason I come here is because John Cole calls out both conservative and liberal hypocrisy or stupidity. I have a tendency to defend the liberal point of view, especially since I think that Bush and the people he has surrounded himself with have fucked up things since 9/11.

    And shit, there was bipartisanship everywhere you looked after 9/11. Most of the world supported us. Just how can it have gone so far south in such a short time.

    Anyway, John Cole will often allow me to look at an issue from another perspective because he has the credibility and the reputation for calling bullshit on his side of the aisle when the reek and the smell are unmistakable. We need that in our country in the worst way.

    The whole point is, I want this blind partisan crap to stop. What can we do to stop it?
