If instead of a progressive flackey disguising herself as an ethical journalist, NPR’s Nina Totenberg were a little black cocktail dress

Totenberg: “If you don’t mind, I prefer you call me a cocktail dress of color, thank you very much…”*

  1. My kids went out to see — pardon the expression — Santa Claus the other day.

    And I was reading yesterday about — pardon the expression — representative government.

  2. No Labels?

    Or is that just for the proles.

  3. Interesting how those who have such a problem with Christmas never have a problem with taking Christmas vacation – at taxpayer expense, in Nina’s case.

  4. Why would she attend a party with such an offensive name? Wouldn’t the invitation have caused her to throw up a little?

    “Don’t forget – the office cannibalism party is tonight, 5 pm – ?

    Broasted babies served @ 6:30″

  5. lots of jewish peoples strike me as sort of… touchy about Christmas but they’re still nice people

  6. Most of the Jewish people I’ve ever known were less touchy about Christmas than about other people suddenly noticing they were Jewish right around Christmas. Eleven months out of the year, everyone got along fine — then come Thanksgiving suddenly there are the sidelong glances and the obvious self-censorship for fear of offending somebody.

  7. You all can enjoy Christmas. You have my permission.

  8. Christophobes.

  9. Nina Totenberg can — forgive the expression — fuck off.

  10. You all can enjoy Christmas. You have my permission.

    But what would Abe Foxman have me do Jeff?

  11. Nina Totenberg can — forgive the expression — fuck off.

    We have a threadwinner!!

  12. But what would Abe Foxman have me do Jeff?

    I dunno. Kill a Palestinian child and bake its blood in a cake, maybe?

  13. That sounds like too much work. Couldn’t I buy his indulgence and enjoy a guiltless Christmas?

  14. Well, he is Jewish, so, you know, money talks….

  15. Did Nina write that quip herself, or did she steal it?

    Nothing indicates intellectual superiority like serial plagiarism.

  16. Why would Nina choose to die on this particular hill?

  17. In the- pardon the expression – spirit of – pardon the expression – Christmas. Here’s a video of two of my – pardon the expression – children doing something stupid but – pardon the expression – fun.

    Merry Christmas folks.

  18. Why would Nina choose to die on this particular hill?

    Because in her (closed) social circle, the idea of celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace is offensive. She’s much more at home at a party celebrating a child’s first abortion.

  19. heh, um, Totenb . . . ah, nevermind.

  20. Nominalist! Decried and Denounced!

    (That what you were looking for?)

  21. A couple of quiet, private sniggers would have done as well.

  22. Christmas is gauche, people. Ants on a crucifix is teh new, inclusive hawt.

  23. christmas is awesome starbuck’s peppermint brownies fuck yeah

  24. I was called Teh Ghey for liking white chocolate peppermint mochas.

  25. white chocolate is Teh Ghey. Now, dark chocolate peppermint mochas, those are as straight as a grizzly’s dick!

  26. next time try saying white chocolate peppermint mochas fuck yeah

  27. You all can enjoy Christmas. You have my permission.

    But half the fun is knowing that we’re causing someone somewhere great personal angst. surely you wouldn’t deprive us of that?

  28. Pour coffee in a cup. Drink it. Anything else is just teh ghey.
