The “How To” Guide to Getting Ripped A New One All Day

When we debuted our “Asshole of the Day” segment on TWiB Radio I didn’ think I’d end up using it so often.  In 7 days we’ve already had to crown 3 assholes–1 of which got double crowned. But the latest guy we gave the title to not only owns his title but it seems like he’s trying to get upgraded to asshole of the month. Perhaps the YEAR. Don’t believe me? This is the tweet that got him to his lofty position…

Yeah.

On Today’s TWiB Radio, before we had to deal with Kincannon,  everybody’s favorite Angry Black Lady™ Imani Gandy swings by for her weekly segment “All Up In Your Uterus w/ Imani Gandy” to talk about the uproar over the Obama administrations actions with dealing with birth control and the hissy fit some folks are having about women possibly having access to birth control through work-supplied insurance.

And on TWiB in the Morning  you get to hear when Kincannon first gets crowned, the leaked Obama White Papers, and a conversation with Feminista Jones, founder of #SexyShred about becoming healthier, using social media to move a cause and more.

As per usual we will be all up in the comments.  And thanks so much for the support folks. If you’ve been enjoying the shows I’ve been posting It’d be amazing if you’d consider taking 30 seconds (each) to fill out an audience survey on the shows we’ve been posting here. That’s TWiB Radio, TWiB in the Morning and On Blackness. It’s really super quick–like SUPER quick– and it’ll help us keep doing what we do.

    one more Republican victim of Barack Obama’s refusal to invite Republicans over for skittles and beer.

    I googled this asshole’s name to see if there was any more direct connection to Graham, Demint, Haley or other South Carolina stalwarts. Nothing jumped out, but I did come across this rather confusing response from Alexandra Petri, a WaPo writer who, as near as I can tell, is Dana Milbank’s sidekick and fancies herself a humorist, though she’s all sober-sided, let-us-rise-above-and-ignore-the-brute Broderism on this. This is from the Petri column

    But if you read Kincannon’s feed, it is clear that he wants to be the Daily Show. “Yep. I ain’t dumb. RT @ JimmyPrinceton @ ToddKincannon Jon Stewart is more effective than CNN or MSNBC,” he notes. […]
    “.@ dkirkland I’m not stupid,” he tweets. “I see where this is going. “‘Politainment’ is the way of the future. And the Right better understand that [excrement].”

    So… apparently jackass wants Jon Stewart to pick on him so huddled hood-wearing masses can rally ’round?

    Well, you gotta feel for the guy a little bit. After all, Todd dreams of getting assfucked by a KKK member every night but if he wants to whack off to it he’s gotta get out the tweezers, so he can get that little rigatoni noodle of his out far enough that he doesn’t jizz over his own taint. Then he calls his dad and asks him if he’s doing it right, because, you know, guys like Todd whose first sexual experience was getting plowed in 6th grade by a pedophile custodian might be a little lacking on details. Anyway, Dad says you gotta taste it to know if you’re doing it right, so Todd gets out the old shot glass and aims painstakingly until there’s enough to swallow. Time-consuming, to be sure, but it does pleasure him in a way that he hasn’t felt since he gave cunnilingus to a pig at his uncle’s farm. An in attempt to recapture that magical feeling he attends furry conventions wearing an assless pig suit and dry humps every teenager he sees, but no matter how often he tries his nights always seem to end him crying into the piss-soaked pig suit in a bathroom stall with a bottle of the cheapest high-proof whiskey he can buy. Poor guy.

    That’s fine. I care about them, but not in a emo fashion. I don’t think a US President will ever be using drones to bomb citizens in the US, that’s a ridiculous slippery slope that a Greenwald or Sullivan will allude to but never actually articulate.

    I put the drone issue under the subhead of Congress’ long, slow abdication of war-making powers to the Executive. Al Qaeda needs to be fought, even when US citizens are part of Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda choose asymmetrical warfare fought across national boundaries and in many weak states. What is the US to do about it? Drones might be legitimate answer, but for the most part I don’t think that answer has been given a Constitutional vetting or proper oversight.

    God, how I long for cosmic repercussions for people such as Kincannon. Instead, he’ll play the victim card and someone, somewhere will reward him with a column. I ventured onto AM radio for a couple minutes this morning and heard some wingnut joke about our “Muslim president from Kenya”. His sidekicks all chortled with glee, thinking they’d just said something terribly clever. No repercussions. The guy’s wife will kiss him hello when he returns home with a fat, undeserved paycheck. His kids will look up at him with respect. His church-going buddies will slap him on the back and wink with appreciation. And he’ll go on about how his rights are being threatened.
