Nothing Changed

Unless I am wildly inaccurate (always a possibility), no one has been executed solely for the crime of child rape in my lifetime, and only two people are even on death row for child rape, both in Louisiana. As such, I find the outrage in certain quarters about today’s decision to be a little perplexing. Nothing really changed with the ruling today, but the usual suspects are up in arms. The Confederate Wanker warns us that we are about to see a surge in vigilante justice:

There is a macabre old urban legend that has floated around for years in which an exceedingly bad person—a wife-beater, a child-abuser, or other such societal dreg—is found perforated with bullets, and knowing local law enforcement officials note that the miscreant’s death was a serious suicide, where the deceased if found having shot himself in the head and/or back multiple times, in some variations even taking the time to reload an empty weapon and fire again.

Such stories, of course, are told with a knowing smile.

We find before us—and perhaps a bit beneath us—a Supreme Court of the United States that in this session has found more sympathy and more previously unknown rights for suspected terrorists and child rapists than it has for the average American.

Wouldn’t this already be taking place, as there already IS no death penalty for child rape in 49 of the fifty states? And how hard is all this vigilante justice, considering all the people convicted of child rape are incarcerated? Did I miss all the stories of lynch mobs breaking into super-max prisons to bring these child-rapists to actual “justice?”

Malkin, knickers in a full twist, finds perfidy in the media:

Anthony Kennedy and the leftists on the Supreme Court ruled this morning that what child rapist Patrick Kennedy did to his 8-year-old stepdaughter is a crime that should not be punishable by death.

The MSM will tiptoe around what child rapist Patrick Kennedy actually did.

She then goes on to quote details of the rape, presumably because we are not bright enough to figure out what happens when a man rapes his 8 year old stepdaughter. Then again, with the dim bulbs who read Malkin on a daily basis, this may be a safe assumption. Her apparent reasoning is that if only the media would go into more detail about the rape case, then we might be able to execute child rapists in Louisiana. Damned liberal media- that must be why we never heard about the lynch mobs!

I simply do not get it. Nothing has really changed, but to read the reactions you would think this monster had been set free . Some days the only reasonable explanation for the apparent bloodlust from some of these folks is that they really just like death.

They Got Nothing

Via memeorandum, this may be the most wingnuttiest blogpost yet this election cycle:

Kos Tries To Pass Off Obama’s Birth Certification As Birth Certificate

Take that, Obamabots!

In the comments of the post, we learn the following:

By concentrating on the word African, you’re all missing the REAL real point: they didn’t have laser printers back in 1961. This document has to be a phony. That, or a legally qualified custodian of the original record issued a certified transcript of the original and adopted the modern usage of the term African where it said Negro or something else in the original.

This is going to be the most awesomest election EVAH!


Via the comments, one of the greats in the annals of right-wing nonsense:

An Obama presidency would signal the final salvo by the Left in the culture wars. Obama’s advance troops have already taken over our college campuses, have bound and gagged our conservative professors, have ravished our virgins, have pillaged our stores of wisdom, and have ensconced themselves in the thrones of power in deans’, presidents’ and department heads’ offices.

The victory cry is heard across the land in the cheers of Obama’s constituency on college campuses.

This has been going on under the very noses of the Republicans.

A lot is going on under your nose when your head is up your ass. I really have nothing to add to this piece, as it speaks for itself, but I will say this- we quite clearly have an early front-runner for this year’s Golden Wingnut Awards.

Cheering While Black

In a post called “Wild Savages Open Thread,” “Chicagoan” at No Quarter ask us to compare and contrast a sermon at TUCC and this YouTube video of people celebrating at a rally in Cincinnatti:

The caption reads: “Unrestrained and potentially violent Obama supporters at a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio.” He then goes on to describe all Obama voters as low information voters who rely on emotion.

My only question- now can we call these folks at No Quarter racist fucks?

*** Update ***

And just like that, the post is gone before I got an expanded screen shot.


Whiny-ass-titty-baby Bill Kristol uses his valuable NY Times real estate to bitch about Obama not mentioning the military in his commencement address at Wesleyan last week.

I have to admit, I watched the speech, and I didn’t see that criticism coming. And if military service is so great (and I thought it was), how come Kristol never served? Or is that just for the proles?

I bet the NY Times sure is proud they chose Kristol. I think every great newspaper needs a full-fledged propagandist on the op-ed pages.
