    Re: Larry Marchant.

    Is that some of the worst eyewitness testimony since To Kill a Mockingbird, or what?

    Although I see a role for Leslie Jordan when HBO makes this all into a movie.

    The video of Elmo talking about illegal immigrants was one of the best things I’ve seen on The Daily Show ever.

    Elmo believe in racial purity. Elmo blood not tainted. Elmo pure. Elmo hate mudblood.

    Amazing.

    @MMonides: Hey new guy. I’d mention in passing that it looked to me that Helen brought up Poland and Germany at the prompting of the rabbi in the full video. She was sort of repeating him. People her age are a bit prone to that. But agree we need to rethink the ways we discuss Middle East peace or lack thereof.

    Which I’m posting here because your post seems to have effed up the formatting like crazy on the blog. And yeah, I’m using IE7. For a very good reason that’s too complicated to explain.

    So Lindsey Graham’s date to the Senior Prom is now claiming to have slept with Nikki Haley? That explains the 20 point lead in the polls.

    Also, this Obama picture from the comments here made me laugh.

    LOL. That clip is great! I especially liked JS’s hand movements while talking about Marchant. And the finger snap… just cracked me up.

    My favorite part was Aasif Mandvi investigating the nutball faction in a California town going nuts that kids at a local school are studying Mandarin Chinese language & culture, because anything which comes from Commonist Chyner is Commonist. (Wal-Mart products and electronics components presumably excepted.)

    Maybe the best part was the dumb woman leading the anti-Mandarin rebellion complaining about how the syllabus and agenda for the kids was all secret, no one could see it, and Mandvi asked the guy in charge of the program and not only did he give this to Mandvi but pointed out where he could get it publicly, and then Mandvi handed it to Mrs Right Wing Dumbass who acted all surprised.

    Violet says:

    @Libby:
    Libby, in IE, I find the formatting changes each time I hit refresh. I think there could be something in some of the ads that messes up IE. So if one of those ads lands on the page, it messes it up. Refresh, a new ad shows up, page is okay.

    I’m laughing at the fact that his charges are a blatant crock of shit, yet unremarkable because that’s just how they do in SC.

    Bill E Pilgrim says:

    @middlewest: “The Big Shaggy”?

    Does Brooks actually not know about “shagging”? These guys are like poets turned inside out, with no sense whatsoever of what other phrases and words theirs might evoke.

    You can see The Big Shaggy at work when a governor of South Carolina suddenly chucks it all for a love voyage south of the equator,

    Yes. Yes, you can.

    The best part is the last line though:

    If you’re dumb about The Big Shaggy, you’ll probably get eaten by it.

    Yes, but only if you stay out after midnight.

    @MMonides: This blogs soul was sold to, has been assimilated by, and now resides in the bowels of the evile GOS. It is not much more than a bloody appendage of such. And no mere mortal Obot can turn that around. That ship done sailed, the cat came out of the bag, and the worm done turned. And fuck all you independent stinker libtard dogmatic morans and serial cute doggie smearers and enablers.

    @middlewest: I read that hopeless Brook’s piece this morning and was just amazed at how ridiculous it was. Does he not have an editor?

    Between Brooks, Douhat, Friedman and MoDo, I am at my wit’s end with reading the NYT Op-Ed pages (after almost 30 years). It’s a fucking minefield of mediocrity. I think that mindless Bill Kristol poisoned it or something and turned it into the Love Canal for political commentary.

    I torment my eldest who is a student at Brooks’ alma mater (UChicago) — by sending her his nonsense. She’s lost her sense of humor over it.

    @ed: So, just to be clear: according to you, Jon Stewart was saying “Look at this guy. He’s gay. That’s really funny, anyone being gay” and that was about it?

    As far as breaking it down, sorry, teaching remedial comedy watching isn’t my strong suit. Maybe someone else can do it.

    Libby says:

    @Violet: Thanks. Now that you mention it, I think that is what happens. Page showing up perfectly right now anyway. But it was a really weird format thing that I got starting with @MMonides post before. It was like the whole front page format had changed to a different font and the margins all changed. It wasn’t just that the text lines were running long which is what usually happens.

    @MMonides: can’t use the other browsers on this old puter for some reason. They all either hang up or crash. Maybe because it’s ten years old now and overloaded with a bunch of useless saved stuff.

    Oh and welcome aboard. Since I’m just a fringer here and not a fully vetted juicer, my soul is probably still somewhat redeemable… ;~)

    Arizona’s wackiness is almost to serious to be thankful for. Whereas South Carolina is just giving the TDS writers easy marks without really trampling on any serious issues.

    Really? Edify me. What did I try to pull off? Go on, explain yourself.

    @ed: So, just to be clear: according to you, Jon Stewart was saying “Look at this guy. He’s gay. That’s really funny, anyone being gay” and that was about it?

    Pretty much. But more like: “Hey, look at the effeminate faggy fag fag! That guy is such a fag!” (Tho’ don’t get me wrong, “vagina” is funny.)

    As far as breaking it down, sorry, teaching remedial comedy watching isn’t my strong suit. Maybe someone else can do it.

    Uh, you tell me I missed a step then you can’t say where? No sale.

    eco2geek says:

    File this under “Chivalry is dead.” Scratch that, chivalry’s too strong a term. File it under “Don’t kiss and tell is dead.” So Nikki Haley’s allegedly a hypocrite and all, but what kind of freak comes out and goes on TV and says, “Hey, I fucked her!” That’s just bizarre.

  57. 57

    @eco2geek:
    “I had inappropriate physical relations…sexual relations…we had sex.”

    Okay, so normally, pointing out he *seems* gay wouldn’t be funny, except he’s the ‘other man’ in an alleged affair. That makes it all kinds of funny.

    And his description of the wild night of passion that took place shortly after midnight on the fourteenth? Hot. It just…exudes passion. If they did have sex, it was probably like the rodeo. You know, where 8 seconds is a long ride.

    Hey, some of us fags are a little sensitive about those faggy words… Please give us some slack?

    Just a thought.

    @DougW

    So was the bit funny (apart from “vagina”)? Were you offended by the bashing and the implied use of the word you don’t like?

    eco2geek says:

    @mapaghimagsik: That Larry guy was hilariously weird. I think he’d be at home as the host on one of those evangelical Christian cable TV shows. Despite Stewart making fun of him for seeming gay, it’s hard to imagine him having sex with anyone of either gender.

    ed says:

    Also too @JMC:

    You admonish:

    There’s no need to use ‘fag’ unless your a Brit jonesing for a smoke, or attempting to burn a witch.

    and then break your own rule in the very next sentence,

    A lot of us ‘fags’ don’t take to kindly to being fed your particularly odious brand of shit sandwich.

    Why are you so eager to be so odious? Or do I misunderstand? Were you somehow using that word you detest so much to illustrate a point? If that’s the case, um, irony.
