It Really Is Impressive

The way Malkin self-promotes and makes everything about her. Someone shoots the chairman of the Democratic party, some random jackass sends her a nasty (and misguided) e-mail, and look what our heroine does:

No links, because that is what she really wants.

Shorter Red State

Dear Pastor Warren,

We know you promised to rise above partisanship and avoid “gotcha” questions when you host Obama and McCain at Saddleback Valley Community Church, but you have no idea how god damned desperate we are this year. Can you please act like a partisan hack AND REPEATEDLY STATE THAT OBAMA WANTS TO KILL UNBORN BABIES AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY?

If you don’t, the baby Jesus may weep. If Obama doesn’t travel through time and abort him, too.

Move Over, Islamofascists

K-Lo’s House of Crazy:

“Fascislamism” [Mike Potemra]

It’s Bernard-Henri Levy’s word for that segment of the Muslim world that defines itself through support for political violence and oppression. In his forthcoming book Left in Dark Times: A Stand Against the New Barbarism, he has also unearthed a great quote from the journal of the writer Paul Claudel. From May 21, 1935: “Hitler’s speech: a kind of Islamism is being created at the center of Europe . . . “

Now not only do we have to worry about the Islamofascists, but the Fascislamists and the Liberal Fascists. And don’t even get me started on the wankers at the People’s Front of Judea.

I have lost track of how many times the Corner has taken to imitating Monty Python.

A Beautiful Mind

Had a couple martinis, came home, checked out the Corner, and saw this gem from K-Lo:

If Obama could go to Germany and give a speech in English and be not only understood but well-received, why does he say we all need to learn another language?

You simply can not spoof these guys.

The Obamas As Elitists

You have to give the Malkin folks credit- they are consistent:

Actually, Michelle Obama has a point here: the $600 stimulus package tax rebate is kind of a gimmick. But she chose a typically Obamesque way of expressing the thought, complete with an implication that taxpayers are wastrels who will just blow their money on luxuries:

“You’re getting $600. What can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything. But maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn’t pay down every bill every month.

“Barack’s approach is that the short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good. And it may even feel good that first month when you get that check. And then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings.”

Have you seen the price of arugula at Whole Foods earrings at Tiffany’s?

They remind me of my family’s Jack Russell terrier when he was younger- he would see a ball, and that was it. It was all he could think about. He had to have the ball. You could see the thoughts running through his head as he pestered you to play with him or if you had put his ball away in the house:

“Won’t you throw the ball? Please? Just a little more ball. No. I will not sit down. I need more ball. Good owners throw the ball. Beautiful, lovely, wonderful ball. MUST. HAVE. THE. BALL. Why do you hate me? Ball. Please throw the ball. Ball. Ball. Ball. Wonderful happy fun ball. Ball is the source of all good. Ball. Ball. Ball. I need the ball. Throw the ball. Please. Ball.”

Now just replace the word “ball” in the previous paragraph with “Obama is elitist,” or, depending on the day, “Marxist” or “Muslim,” and you don’t need to read Malkin or her lackeys until after November.

*** Update ***

By the way, this will come as devastating news to the folks pushing the book Grand New Party, as it appears that even Wal-Mart is elitist, what with their wide selection of earrings from the $250- $3,000.00 range. So much for the Sam’s Club Republicans, as Sam’s Club is apparently elitist, too. Once you have lost Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club, what do you have left, non-elitists? Dollar General?

On a serious note, it never ceases to amaze mt that the more these guys try to show they are in touch with “middle America” (I just broke my own ban), the more they reveal how out of touch they are with the common experiences of most people in this country.
