Joe Wilson Is A DIckhead

I'm not going to discuss health care just yet; I'm still pissed off about the Iraq War, Iranian hostages, and Watergate. And something as complex, and as admittedly prone to different legitimate emphases, as reforming out national system of providing health care merits some of my thoughtful analysis with ample time to duly regard the issues.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha


I did just want to ask Joe Wilson:

Who The Fuck Told You A Presidential Address To A Joint Session of Congress Was A Town Hall Where You Should Open Your Fucking Yap?

He could be 100% right [which I doubt], and still be 100% wrong [now you're talking].

Crawl back in yer hole.

And if we want a grumbly, Brit-parliamentary-style-question-and-answer-shit-goofy-governance, then we . . . .

ooooops. Sorry, Panna Mukta Tapti. Didn't mean to step on any toes

As they used to say, "There's a time and a place for everything." Also "You salute the rank not the man." Or even "Let's agree to disagree."

Now you say whatever you want whenever you want and if anyone disagrees, they are the enemy.

I blame Joe McCarthy, Woodstock and home theaters ...

More Louise Brooks, now, dammit!

You know, some people see non-existent death panels in non-existent health care legislation and say "why?" I look at my completely nutsy she-devil of a mother and say "why not?"

Okay, that was completely uncalled for and I'm going to burn in hell. What else is new?

Where's Sheriff John T. when you need him?

While I agree that Wilson is a dickhead (and he was also lying BTW) I didn't get my knickers in quite the twist many did over his outburst.

I wasn't sure exactly why that was, but as usual, Greenwald ended up expressing it better than I would have:

Money quote:

"If only a fraction of the media dismay devoted to his two-second breach of "decorum" had been directed to, say, rampant presidential lawbreaking, or the implementation of a torture regime, or the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of people in our various wars, we would be much better off."

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; so sayeth the Mighty McGuinn.

I think that the focus of mister muleboy's discontent was the Britishness of it all.

And the distracting effect that the "controversy" has, allowing the 18% of redmeateatingassholes to get worked up.

Yeah, that's eighteen percent on each side.

About 36% of folks in this land are just staggeringly predeictable and . . . . ichy.

predictable too.
