Happy Halloweenies, Cobagz!

I’m rocking some snack size Kit Kats and battle rapping the neighbor knobs.

You Know

We’ve been trying to anger the pregnant hunger monster inside of Kathleen with indiscriminate craving suggestions all week at Delicious or Disgusting. I’d like to take a moment to assess the fact that it seems like there has been some collateral damage. We have nothing but ourselves to blame. We’ve created a craving bubble. In all our mindless enthusiasm, our flipping of delicious ideas, hoping to unload them on some unwary unborn suckas, our “satay default swaps” aimed at reducing the risk to our own stomachs so we might reap the benefits of C. running hither and thither for the rarest and most sublime of take out, we forgot that we are not in fact “dancer”, we are human, and we are mothereffing hungry.

fail.

Tiny Wanker

Snag, from Befouled, in comments, at Republic of Dogs, at our request, in response to a giant block of tweedy balsa wood, as called out by Kevin William Baker, gives us:

TINY WANKER

Ivy Leaguer, eager beaver, apologist for the Man
Scruffy beard, pallor’s weird, his delusions are so grand
Blogerina, I know I’ve seen ya with your head stuck in the sand
And now he’s posting, always boasting, status quo is in his hand

Moderate on his cot
In the basement of his mom
Typing fast he just laughs
And makes lists of who we should bomb

Philosopher, he does infer
From a false analogy
Justifying without crying
His flawed mentality

But oh how it feels unreal
Writing words that are so absurd
Oh my God you are pretentious
You must have dementia, dementia

Shut your piehole tiny wanker
How could you be so obtuse?
I’ll shoot myself if you don’t stop
Or stick my head into a noose

Ivy Leaguer, eager beaver, apologist for the Man
Scruffy beard, pallor’s weird, his delusions are so grand
Blogerina, I know I’ve seen ya with your head stuck in the sand
And now he’s posting, always boasting, status quo is in his hand

Snag is a precious resource who should be showered with bourbon.

Don’t Pretend

Newspaper endorsements are always fun. Especially when they play the game of high centrism. Allow us to bathe in the finely turned rhetoric of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, RE: their endorsement of one Dave Reichert (R-WA).

In the 8th Congressional District, Eastside and neighboring voters have a race that is more competitive than most, with two capable candidates. For those of us who think that there should be strong reasons to kick out an incumbent trying to represent a diverse district well, Dave Reichert is the choice for re-election. We also think that preserving and encouraging the development of a rare voice of moderation within the Republican Party is important at a time of almost unremitting polarization.[PP adds: Why? Cannot a [D] serve all his or her constituents?]

We would be perfectly comfortable with his opponent, Democrat Darcy Burner, who is smart, well informed and progressive. Her views are much closer to our own on domestic and foreign policy, and we supported her in 2006. [PP adds: well that just sucks. Let’s cut off our noses to spite our faces] But this is not an ideological choice.

In the past two years, Reichert has grown. When he was re-elected, we urged him to emphasize independence from the White House. We also suggested that he maintain his commitment to the environment and to mature in a new role as a member of the minority party.

He says it was hard to become a member of the minority, but he seems to have handled it well. Especially concerning the environment, where he has staked out moderate positions at odds with his party. He was one of the more progressive members in either party on farm and food policy.

Reichert was absent without leave from good sense during the worst periods of the Iraq War. We will never agree with his anti-choice views. But he has shown a willingness and capacity to hear opposing positions, to learn from the discussions and to work across political divisions. As a Republican of moderation, he is an endangered species worth preserving.

My emphases. I really haven’t read anything so…what’s the word??

Dear Washington, for the sake of some hypothetical high-mindedness, we urge you to forgo a woman’s right to choose, and decency on foreign and domestic policy. MAKES SENSE! DIAL IT UP!

BREAKING BAKING BAKEOFF CONTROVERSY

Will this heal our nation, or plunge it into despair?

Remember this lovingly crafted sob story? A tissue of LIES.

Chuckmunchies probably spliffed up and was uncontrollable. I find the entire affair disturbing in the sordid id that has been placed on display.

I expect a a libel lawsuit soon. Go for it, craftily unnamed store employees, his genius is worth millions!

New data has arrived at the 3B Election Supercomputing Facility — conceivable Barr/McKinney/Nader/Paul co-Presidency with strange eddies in Nebraska and Maine?

Strange Eddie says hi. So does Strange Eddie.

Quality Trolling

Regarding this bit of total evil, “carolinamama” chimes in:

Yes,this is stupid, but don’t you think you are presuming quite a bit to think that it was done because of Obama’s race. What does that matter. The acttions of these poeple were uncalled for but it probably has more to do with Obama’s lack of character than his color. Interestingly enough the people who did this evidently suffer from the same moral deficiencies.

The McCain-Palin Campaign

…is so misleading, they formed “Future Misleaders of America Club” with Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery Indicator Light.

Your deal.
