The Walrus and The Carpenter

Y’know what’s really tragic?  The fact that in 2008 we are still seeing op-eds from the likes of John fucking Bolton.

Yeesh.

Hey, Ruth, Camille Paglia called–she wants her “feminist anti-christ” shtick back.

Sweet weepin’ Jeebus…

Calm down ladies and let teh menz tell you how to talk seriously about reproductive freedom.

My delightfully sarcastic and trivial homegrrl fern hill murders a Progressive ally unambiguously disassociates herself from Woodley’s insipid Sister Souljah moment.

One Last Tidbit Before We Move On

by matttbastard

Well, well — our old pal Rachel Marsden, the uncrowned Canadian queen of spittle-flecked right-wing self-parody, has apparently landed in marginal exile at WingNutDailyNorth–as perfect a proto-fascistic forum for her now-antiquated incoherent firebrand routine as anyone could hope for. Both Prole and JJ note that Marsden remains entirely unchastened by her recent unceremonious turfing from the Toronto Sun after a delightful column that extolled the virtues of torture was successfully met by a grassroots campaign of popular resistance. Her most recent screed (sorry, Rache, no linky luvvins from yours truly) replaces the initial reductive waterboarding metaphor (“CIA sponsored swim lesson“) with version 2.0 (“bobbing for apples” — wee!!11)

Puh-lease–Rache, you’re trying way too hard, now, trolling for (left-wing) outrage to help build up your ever-expanding conservative martyr complex.

Well, congrats — as far as this objectively pro-Bin Laden bastard is concerned, you’re now in the same league as Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly, etc etc etc: so entirely out to lunch that offering a serious response to your hate-filled paranoid delusions would be pointless, even counterproductive. Why bother legitimizing arguments that are so fucking ridiculous (and telegraphed) they essentially refute themselves? In other words, DNFTT — especially one with an undeservedly elevated media profile (to say nothing of ego).

Have fun wallowing in the muck and mire with the rest of the rabid swine, Marsden; I have many, many far more important matters to attend to.
