  • The reason DumFux News is on with Ben Carson is that he’s very useful and convenient cat’s paw – they can use him to beat up on the Libruls ie: he’s their best black friend right now, and it doesn’t really matter because they prob’ly already know he’s toast by Christmas. And also too (Chez nailed this one), their #2 raison d’etre is defending themselves against charges of being racist assholes etc etc etc by deflecting criticism. So they’re doing a Both Sides thing, trying to build a case for False Equivalence.

      You’re forgetting the part where Conservatives think the wrong side won the Civil War. Ben Carson is as yet undecided on that one.

      • Badgerite

        I know. How is it that a white guy with a gun who has the right to vote and is never beat up, tasered or otherwise abused or killed over a minor traffic violation is always “fighting tyranny” but Nelson Mandela who was subjected to a system when there was not only no right to vote or engage in any political activity but also a system of occupation in their own lands was a ” terrorist”?

    Unfortunately, it’s not just CNN wanting the Democratic debates to be something they shouldn’t be. This morning, Charlie Pierce tore into Debbie Wasserman Schultz for limiting the number of debates among the Ds to six. Pierce has never troubled himself to explain why six is inadequate or why in the name of whatever god or gods may exist the average—or even non-average, highly-engaged—voter would voluntarily subject her/himself to more, he simply asserts this is some kind of unforced error that should disqualify Wasserman Schultz from ever again being taken seriously. The closest he’s come is bemoaning the notion that the Rs, by having more debates and more poop-flinging, will somehow gain an advantage (sort of the “all publicity is good publicity” theory on ‘roids).

    “At the request of many”? Does that mean all the voices in Donald Trump’s head get a vote? That’s scary.

    None of the networks or their parent companies is ethical in any meaningful sense of the word, but at this point NBC is just flashing its arse.

    We know the short-fingered vulgarian is incapable of laughing at himself. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner?

    (At the risk of starting a flame war, I’ve always hated Saturday Night Live, going all the way back to Season One. Diversos diversa juvant; non omnibus annis Omnia conveniunt.)

    So that would be a five-star review, then?

    Okay, you guys asked for it:

    A man dies and finds himself in Heaven. Saint Peter greets him and asks if he has any requests.

    “Well, if it’s not too much trouble, I’d like to meet God.”

    “Ooh,” says St Peter, “that’s tricky. God’s calendar is really full at the moment. Maybe in a few months, when things calm down …”

    At that moment, someone who looks a lot like God strides past, wearing scrubs and barking instructions to a gaggle of lab-coated minions who follow along in His wake, frantically scribbling notes.

    The man turns to St Peter. “Was that God?”

    St Peter shakes his head sadly. “Yes. You’ll have to excuse Him. He only thinks He’s a surgeon.”

    *rimshot*

    Having said that, even for a blade, Ben Carson is just plain weird.

    Carson isn’t entirely out of step with Seventh-Day Adventist eschatology, as I understand it. Well, except for the bit about him being able to. Spring. Into. Action. And. Stop. The. End. Times. That’s … erm … different. Different enough to get him in trouble with his church’s leadership? I have no idea.

    “A candidate unbound”? More like a candidate unhinged.

    Bob, not a single R candidate for President who’s polling in double digits has the faintest idea what the debt ceiling is. Carson is hardly unique.

    Driftglass was less than impressed by David Brooks’s column. Count me on the “unimpressed” side, as well.

    By the standards of the University of Texas, carrying a firearm is no big deal, but a dildo is, and I think I’m using the word the uni’s policy does, “disruptive.” Terrible as that is, it’s not the worst part.

    This is :

    Concealed weapons being allowed in buildings on University of Texas at Austin will take effect on August 1, 2016 — the 50th anniversary of engineering student Charles Whitman’s rampage from the campus clocktower in 1966. It was one of the first mass shootings on a school campus in America.

    Bob, Fox News Channel isn’t talking to the sane people. FNC is addressing the aging, white xenophobes who are the real victims of racism! because they can’t say “n****r” any more. Racism isn’t actually real, libruls are just using that accusation to get RealMurcans to shut up. Since racism isn’t actually real, FNC is going to turn the accusation around on them damn’ libruls and let’s see how they like it!

    Who in the world is more qualified to identify racism than Bill O’Reilly and Eric Bolling, two very stupid people who couldn’t be whiter if they were dipped in correction fluid (ask your parents, kids)? Sigh.

    Liberals are saying the same things about Ben Carson they’re saying about Donald Trump and the other likelies on the R side: that he’s crazy and ignorant, and therefore shouldn’t be seriously considered for President. Does that mean we’re racist for saying rude things about a German-Scottish madman with a tribble on his head?

    Lindsey Graham sounded almost reasonable. He must have decided to retire after his current term in the Senate.

      “At the request of many”? Does that mean all the voices in Donald Trump’s head get a vote? That’s scary.

      Would that qualify as voter fraud?

      “Does that mean we’re racist for saying rude things about a German-Scottish madman with a tribble on his head?”

      Ask your grandparents about the tribble kids. Or your younger nerdy cousins.

      • muselet

        1) No, but Donald Trump live-tweeting the Democratic debate may constitute consumer fraud (“We were promised insightful analysis, not constant repetition of ‘Weak!’ and ‘Low energy!'”).

        2) One of the deficiencies of HTML is the lack of a “fogey” tag. (In my defense, I assumed The Young People Of Today would be more familiar with ST:TOS than with Wite-Out.)

        • Aynwrong

          I was only kidding around. Especially the Star Trek stuff.

          • muselet

            So was I. Well, except for the “fogey” tag idea. That could be useful.

    Speaking of James Inhofe, can anybody please tell me how someone who says that they believe in the bible (literally) can say that they do not believe that climate change could be real, because God would never destroy His work? The flood, anyone?

  • ProudLiberalAlways

    @29.03—Yeah, I can imagine it. Have you already forgotten the Smirking Chimp? I keep trying, but I can’t. If you have, PLEASE tell me how! Pretty Please?

  • ProudLiberalAlways

    Just what the world needs—–an American President with the nuclear codes who believes in end-times scripture, and that he can see it coming! Lord help us all!!
