David Shuster Tries to Steal Perez Hilton’s Crown [Dan Collins]

Which is really just gauche. You can see Shuster here, asking permission to vomit about the news that The Donald won’t strip Miss USA California, Carrie Prejean, of her crown for boobie pictures and expressing her opionion.

That a woman with medically enhanced boobage would presume to speak against universal gay marriage is beyond absurd, according to Mr. Shuster. These pageants are a superficial outrage, and ought to be stopped.

For all his faux feminism, it never seems to occur to Shuster that television talking heads aren’t always chosen simply on the basis of their matchless wits. As Treacher says (paraphrasing), just because you’ve got a camera pointed at your face doesn’t mean you’re smart.

Somehow, it doesn’t occur to Shuster, either, that Hollywood actors and actresses who like to pontificate don’t necessarily have much in the brains and education department. Many of them are crappy actors and actresses who court publicity out of a grandiose sense of entitlement. Shuster looks like the love child of Keith Olbermann and Mel Kiper, Jr., and they ought to give him his own program, called Crosstalk, to display his sterling intellect. He could have a Most Emetic Person in the World segment.  Hell, I’d like to see the guy interviewed by Carrie Prejean.

Like most self-important idiots, he seems unaware that his standards can be applied to himself (and his network).

Oh, and Mr. Douchester, in the interests of correct grammar, it ought to be “may I vomit.” We presume you are as capable of nauseation as you are of nauseating.

And what would major douchebaggery be w/o Queef?

  1. Geez, Jeff. If you could get that first video link to embed, I’d be ever so grateful.

  2. So, wait, he’s arguing that if you are cosmetically adjusted and have a career based on your charisma and looks, you should be ignored on political issues? Well I can’t find fault with that, but he seems a bit inconsistent in his application of this principle.

  3. If cosmetic surgery disqualifies one from high-profile causes, can we give Madam Botox the boot from the Speaker’s chair?

  4. Not to mention Vice President Botox McHairplugs.

  5. Could we extend that to the banning of drag queens from public sight? I’d sign on for that.

  6. There you go, Abe, you got the spirit of things. Is Shuster a poofter?

  7. From the Bob Somerby quote in the Hot Air link:

    For the record, her view on the matter seems to resemble that of Barack Obama. And that of Hillary Clinton. And John Kerry and Al Gore

    Donald Trump made the same point, but I think what is more important, and not mentioned by either, is that Miss Prejean expressed a view held by the majority of Californians (hello, she is Miss California!), as demonstrated by the recent addition to the state constitution barring gay marriage. By way of a state initiative voted on in a state election.

    I mean really, isn’t she almost obligated to hold that view, as a person representing the state?

    It’s ironic that the same bunch that’s spent the last forty years battling social stigmatization of unpopular social mores is using social stigmatization in an attempt to shame someone from holding traditional social values.

    It’s almost like they are hypocrites or something…

  8. I need to remind you all the Carrie Prejean had the unmitigated gall to answer a question honestly and with moral clarity.

    Cigars up twats is good.
    Christian values bad.

  9. Who will out fag the fag on the next Queer eye for the idealistic pie?

  10. The free exchange of idea’s is dead. It died on campus.

  11. The term QUEER may only be used by QUEERS. Except when explaining who is allowed to use the term.

  12. i’ve moveon to nancy boy

  13. @#11 think of the word power you would have if you were in a tribe of black gay people. If ANYONE outside your tribe EVER called ANY of you Queer Nigger or any variation of that, you could sue them until the cows come home times infinity.

  14. RoA, leave the Quiggers alone!

  15. QUIGGER! HA!

  16. OOps – OMG! I AM SO SORRY FOR LAUGHING AT THAT! OMG! I FEEL SO ASHAMED NOW! IT MUST HAVE BEEN MY DEMONIC ANCESTORS THAT MADE ME CHUCKLE. I PROMISE THAT TONIGHT I WILL FIND A MINORITY (BUT NOT ASIAN) AND GIVE THEM A HUG AND TELL THEM I AM SORRY! OK? OK?

  20. OT: Iowahawk brings the fucking comedy heat.

  21. Now that was fuck’in funny Pablo!

    Iowahawk is a genius.

  22. Nancy in on the torture A back slap by the Rovester.

    And here is a lesson on the use of can and may.

  23. I’ll cover that hug for an Asian for Republican on Acid. It’s OK, we’re married.

    Maybe that makes it wrong, but I’m not interested in becoming politically correct. If I became politically correct, then I’d probably have more friends, and more obligations at which I’d have to suppress my opinions. That would lead to stress and possible health problems which would raise healthcare costs. So, my being politically incorrect is actually for your benefit.

  25. Oh, and Mr. Douchester…

    “Mr. Douchester”? Does he wear that on his sash? Because I can totally see him as the reigning beauty queen of Douchester, which, last I checked, was just up the road from Bitchester.

    What you need to do is learn how to laugh silently, on the inside, with a sternly disapproving look on your face.

    Apparently, so does President Obama.
