“The ‘YearlyKos Convention’:  We came for the spirited political debate, we stayed for the $2 wine coolers!”

Decision ‘08’s Mark Coffey emails:

Followers of PlameGate will be delighted to hear that the agenda-less, objective Joe Wilson will be appearing with such luminaries as Jane Hamsher, Dan Froomkin, and Larry Johnson to discuss matters at the YearlyKos convention.

I swear I’m not joking

…to which protein wisdom replies, “wait, there’s something called a ’YearlyKos Convention’?  Christ.  They’ll probably be enough tinfoil at that thing to grill up a couple thousand ears of corn.”

Too bad they couldn’t have gotten Scooter Libby to commit.  I’d have paid big bucks to see him in a steel cage match with Wilson—though I suspect Hamsher would prove the tougher opponent.

Froomkin? Too “objective” as a journalist to participate in such thuggery, bless his heart.

  1. I always suspected those tools drank wine coolers. Now I know.

  2. I keep telling ya, Jeff, a good psychotronic deflector beanie is made from aluminum foil, not tinfoil.

    Picture a couple dozen of us, with axe handles in tow, dropping by to say hello.  It would be like an Alaskan seal hunt.

    It’s a damn shame I won’t be there until the July.

  5. From the yearlykos link:

    The Establishment is not just going to give us the power to make a difference. If we want change, we have to make it happen ourselves.

    Now kick, bitches. Fuck the Man!

    I could write shit like this, and these tools would sell joints to buy it….

    Tin Foil Hats MIT Study indicates that the legendary “tin foil” protection against Government Mind Control Transmissions does not protect, but instead acts as a waveguide, actually amplifying the waves, obviously specifically targeting those who have grown suspicious of the government’s sinister plot

    I’ve heard Libby’s fiction includes cage scenes. Ever penned a review?

    While I’m sure violent fantasies about people who’ve done nothing to you keep you nice and aroused in front of your keyboard, I’d imagine that in reality it’d probably look more a bit more like this.

  10. Nah, just send Jeff Gannon to smite them with his cock.

  11. I like the cut of your jib there, ken!

  12. Holy crap.  That Cheney was drunk lunatic from firedoglake is the “moderator” for the panel.

    Amusing.

  17. Ph34r the Erisian Liberation Front!

  18. Beck, is that the group colloquially known as d’Erisian…?

  19. Here is a little taste of what they’l’ be treated to, Jow Wilson just last week). Should be fun!

    It still amazes me when I still see that drunk Bill Kristol on tv every week still spewing the same nonsense he was spewing 3 years ago

    Drive a stake through the heart of every single neoconservative, if that’s what it takes

    Zalmay Khalilzad?  I’d like to punch him right in the face

    Scooter Libby is a despicable coward of a human being

    Seeing as she was the National Security Advisor, the person whose job it is to keep track of the nuclear threats against the United States, for her not to know about these reports that were sitting in her very own office files says to me that she is either A) incompetent, B) disingenous, or C) and this is the most likely in my opinion….simply a bald faced liar.

    That is just the tip of the iceberg, warning KOS link.

  20. Joe, they’ll ==sorry…tired

  21. McGehee:  Never heard of ‘m.

    I’m talking about these people.

  22. Good lord..how many kosskiddies will be in Vegas for this? And are the city fathers aware that such a convergence can suck the wattage out of The Strip.

    On a related note… case crossed my desk today of a man arrested for arson, domestic violence (splashed gasoline around & lit it after telling his live in girlfriend he was going to kill them both)…. she fled, called 911, fire dept put out fire, cops took him off the the :::ahem::: Behavior Health Center.

    Pics in file of how they found him in house, covered from head to toe in heavy duty Reynolds. Muttered about thoughts being read and foil to protect him from them

    He looked like a large baked potato … with eyes. Which is what he WOULD have been if the fire department was just a little later.

  23. love you guys. 

    I’ve never admired kos, but assumed he was sorta smart at least.  Continuing to hang with Joe and the pack has me reconsidering that too.

    Thanks for posting this–gonna visit my folks in Vegas this summer.  Now I know when not to go.  Although it might be fun to see if Joe meets any old friends from the Iranian diplomatic corps there.

  24. Froomkin was included to provide “balance”, I’m sure.

    Hell, just send Mary McGrory instead. Yeah, she dead; but she’d be at least as good a “balance” as Froomkin.

  25. Darleen

    case crossed my desk today of a man arrested

    Are you a lawyer?

  26. Top

    No. I just clerk at a DA office… ‘bout 8 years now.

  27. I have an idea that’s better than taking ax handles to the YearlyKos convention:

  28. Darleen

    Do you read justoneminute.typepad.com ?

    If you don’t you should, cuz legal minds are appreciated.

    Especially this this one

    Take a look at the response and tell us your opinion. (I hope you do)

  29. Darlene, is there any professional issues you should consider when sharing that info with us?

    Like, did you see photos that are to be used as evidence (or not) and has a jury been selected in the case (if there is one to be selected).

    I worked for an attorney once and he told me that there’s all sorts of privacy stuff you have to be careful about so be careful!

    and he got a 154 on the LSAT so he knew what was what

  30. Oh, man, there’s gotta be convention coverage! With the RNC and the DNC , you’d have a trifecta!

  31. Hmmm.

    Frankly I’d suggest there’s more than enough kool-aid going around. 

    I’ve been … correction … I was participating in the discussion over illegal immigration at RedState and PoliPundit.  I gave up after I was accused of being a NAZI by Republicans because I dared expect the government to actually enforce the bloody laws and had the temerity to blame Bush for not guarding the borders better.

    Maybe Kos is infectious?

  32. To Some Guy In Chicago & natesnake;

    You two would pee yourselves.  Axe handles, god what an idiot.  I’m a liberal, and I pretty much guarantee I can kick your ass.

    By the way, there’s 65 veterans running as Democrats.  Every one of those (including Tammy Duckworth) would take that axe handle of yours and use on it you.  How many veterans are running as Republicans?  Not many.  Think maybe there’s a reason for that?

    Keep having your little daydreams.  ‘Cause you’re too much of a coward to ever actually do anything.

    P.S.  If you think the war is such a good idea… ENLIST.

    P.P.S.  Let’s see if you guys can take it as well as dish it out.  Will this comment be deleted?

  33. Haw haw!  TIN FOIL!  Cause they’re CRAZY!  “A couple thousand ears of corn!” You’re a real S. J. Perelman.

  34. Natesnake: I would kick your ass across the strip. I’d even let you have your axe handle…

    Love,

    Tristram

    “A liberal that can kick your ass.”

  35. *sigh* if only rto were here……

    tw: special, maybe there would be a special on axe handles…..

  36. Lighten up, Francis Thomas.

    Couple of points: Kossack does not equal Democrat. Just as not all Germans were Nazis, not all Democrats are raving, mush headed leftist lunatics. It’s just most of them.

    By the way, there’s 65 veterans running as Democrats.

    You’re not counting Paul Hackett, are you?

    How many veterans are running as Republicans?  Not many.

    How many is not many? You shouldn’t be asking the question like that if you don’t know the answer.

    If you think the war is such a good idea… ENLIST.

    What if I join the UN instead? I’ve already done the American armed services, and there’s no child rape or aid kickbacks in their benefits package. I’m looking to branch out.

    Anyway, do you think catching murderers is a good idea? Are you a cop? How about removing brain tumors? Are you a neurosurgeon? What about eating? Are you a chef?

    Let’s see if you guys can take it as well as dish it out.

    OK. Bring it on.

    Will this comment be deleted?

    This isn’t daily kos.

  37. A day in the life of Thomas:

    To Some Guy In Chicago & natesnake;

    You two would pee yourselves.  Axe handles, god what an idiot.  I’m a liberal, and I pretty much guarantee I can kick your ass.

    “Tommy, come down for breakfast!  Your Cap’n Crunch is getting soggy!”

    “Mom! What have I told you about interrupting me while I’m blogging.  I’m doing important work here!!”

    SOCKO!  PUNCH!!  BIFF!!  POW!!

    “Okay Mom!! I got my mind right.  Don’t hit me anymore…..*sniffle*”

  38. Axe handles, god what an idiot.

    Really! Any fool knows adze handles are the way to go!

  39. Threatening to bring ax handles to the Kos convention . . . I can’t even tell you how hard I’m laughing right now. Natesnake, Guy in Chicago, Pablo, why don’t y’all just wear T-shirts that say “I Have a Tiny Cock and Live In My Mom’s Basement”?

  40. Hmmm.

    why don’t y’all just wear T-shirts that say “I Have a Tiny Cock and Live In My Mom’s Basement”?

    You live in your mom’s basement??

    Good Lord man!  Isn’t it time for you to move out?

  41. Threatening to bring ax handles to the Kos convention . . . I can’t even tell you how hard I’m laughing right now.

    Too bad you are laughing for the wrong reason; how about you guys wearing t-shirts that say: I am a hyper-literal moron who thinks symbolism is a music class.

    Hey alppuccino, what’s a metaphor?

  42. By the way, there’s 65 veterans running as Democrats

    Source that, liar.

    (What is most comical is Mother Jones reported this as 15 considered running and now it’s 65. It’s sort of like me turning college baseball experience into me playing for the Yankees).

    I’m a liberal, and I pretty much guarantee I can kick your ass.

    And I can pretty much guarantee you can’t, and wouldn’t even try to.

    How many veterans are running as Republicans?  Not many.  Think maybe there’s a reason for that?

    Um, because they’re over there finishing the job maybe?

    Ever think of that, mental gimp?

    While I’m sure violent fantasies about people who’ve done nothing to you keep you nice and aroused in front of your keyboard

    Several posts later it’s pointed out:

    Drive a stake through the heart of every single neoconservative, if that’s what it takes

    Zalmay Khalilzad?  I’d like to punch him right in the face

    You can’t make this stuff up folks.

    Republicans are blessed with their political enemies.

  43. P.S.  If you think the war is such a good idea… ENLIST.

    Apparently some on your side of the political divide have decided they think the war isn’t a good idea and have expressed themselves as such:

    Hmmm, slogans such as “Christian Crusade”, “No Blood for Oil”, etc. Where have I seen that before? I wonder…

  44. “Tommy, come down for breakfast!  Your Cap’n Crunch is getting soggy!”

    “Mom! What have I told you about interrupting me while I’m blogging.  I’m doing important work here!!”

    SOCKO!  PUNCH!!  BIFF!!  POW!!

    “Okay Mom!! I got my mind right.  Don’t hit me anymore…..*sniffle*”

    Yeah, I’m sure the life of Captain Axe Handle is filled with much derring-do by comparison.

    …………..

  45. holy roller

    I’m exceedingly careful in what I share about the cases I see. I talk about ‘em in very general terms, I don’t identify what office I work at and since the fire department/cops at the scene easily could share the same info on what the guy looked like when they rolled him away, it is fairly public knowledge.

    This is why I’m really really careful not to say anything about high profile cases out of my office (the stuff that ends up on the 6:00 news, as happens from time to time) until they’ve dispo-ed. Or I only share what is public knowledge.

    What has been eye opening for me from within the first few months of my working at the DA is that much of the public that has no contact with the judicial system really is woefully ignorant on how it works.

    First off…it ain’t glamorous!

    But it can be humorous in a dark way with the “stupid criminal” stuff.

    Or it can tear your heart out with the cases where children are victims.

  46. I see I’m back from the liquor store just in time, since the Chickenhawk Drinking Game is rolling along nicely. Who needs a refill after all these rounds?

  47. Is it not usual at this point to observe that are quite a few veterans posting here?  Wonder how long Thomas was in?

    And no liberal in history has ever kicked anyone’s ass.

  48. Is it not usual at this point to observe that are quite a few veterans posting here?

    Well I for one was Navy.

    I think that counts. Barely.  grin

  49. I can’t tell you how many times a “liberal” has threatened to “kick my ass.” I tried to work out a ratio of threats to reality, but then, you can’t divide by zero, can you?

    Oh, well, if it wasn’t for 12-year old dick wavers, the internet would be…. umm, better?

    Thomas & Doug: Thanks for the Talking Points. Gosh, we’d almost forgotten them, we haven’t seen them in, well, hours.

  50. B Moe,

    Sorry for the late response.

    I don’t know, what is a metaphor?

  51. Source this, dumbass.

    FACTS:

    There are now 65 fighting dems running (even with the withdrawal of Hackett, Bryan Lentz (PA to make room for another vet, an vice admiral), and David Ashe (VA who withdrew to accept a job with the upcoming Kaine administration and to make room for a another candidate who is not a vet).

    Of the vets running, 25 are unopposed. So the question is not about the primaries, here, but about the how well they can do in the General Election. Undoubtedly, there will be casualties, but they are building the Democratic Party “from the ground up” in their districts, so even if they lose they have made a step towards turning red districts to blue.

    There are another 13 vets only opposed by one other Dem primary candidate and their vet status is likely to help them win the primary in most of them.

    There are another half dozen with only two opponents in the Dem primary. Some of these have a good chance. An example is Andrew Horne who has gotten the support of DFA in his KY district over two non-vet candidates.

    The others, about 20 or so, are large fields of candidates, mostly in open seats or where there is an especially vulnerable GOP candidate. Some of these have strong non-vet Fighting Dems that will deserve our support if they win. But maybe half a dozen to ten FDs have a shot at winning.

    So this analysis shows that somewhere between a third and two thirds of the Fighting Dems might be running in the General Election.

    We only need 15 seats to take over Congress. A combination of good non-vet fighting Dems and Fighting Dem vets could help bring a landslide victory for the Dems.

  52. I can’t tell you how many times a “liberal” has threatened to “kick my ass.”

    Welcome to the internet. Jesus christ.

  53. Here are bios of 58 of the veterans running as Dems in ‘06.

    Funny how having a GOP president and Congress who lead soliders into a war without any semblence of a plan, force our troops to fight a war without proper equipment and armor, and then short our vets on health care leads to a mass movement of vets running as Dems.

  54. Fighting Dems, true conservatives know that all these people chose to serve their country precisely so that they could come back and bash our Commander-in-Chief. Hijacking our nation’s armed forces, my friends, is the lowest form of treason.

    This is almost as bad as when Cindy Sheehan’s son faked his death. Luckily, we had brave volunteers calling her the “Bitch in the Ditch”. Unfortunately, the MSM prevented the truth from getting out and even otherwise God-fearing Republican women wound up supporting this vile, treacherous, hateful, islamofascist sympathizer because of her “loss”.

    We live in dark times, my friends. I say we ask all 65 of these “Fighting Traitors” to turn over their records to show that they weren’t secretly aiding and abetting the enemy. If they don’t turn them over, they have something to hide. And if anyone implies our Commander-in-Chief should do the same, that just shows you how much they hate freedom. The moonbats flying out of the fever swamp of The Left these days are absolutely sickening.

  55. scarshapedstar:

    Welcome to the internet. Jesus christ.

    Jesus never threatened to kick my ass. Gave me a heck of a noogie once, though.

    Oh, and Fighting Dems:

    Thanks, Doug and Thomas skipped part of the Talking Points!

    I for one appreciate what you’re doing, or think you’re doing, anyway. I’m sure you believe every word you’re saying, and whose responsibility you say it is.

    But for me, this is all about the big picture. We’ve been out of this 1400-year war for about 200 years, so we’ve forgotten it. Sure, Bush is a noodnik. But compared to Gore or Kerry, my judgement was that his team would do a heck of a lot better with regards to the “larger war.”

    To that end I believe I’ve made a good decision.

    And, given the public behavior of Democrats of late, and the hollowness of the latest “plan” to come out, and the fact that this conflict is on the verge of going nuclear…. well, I’m dubious about changing this particular horse in the middle of this particular stream.

    I’m a Libertarian. That means I’m not fond of political power no matter who has it. But I also know that the vision of our current leaders, imperfect as it is, is closer to my goals than the vision of our opponents.

    And I’m still a bit boggled by those who keep clucking that 9/11 was a criminal act and NOT an act of war.

    The Dems would have to earn my allegiance away from the Other Side, and I haven’t seen anything to convince me. I’ve seen a lot of childish braying, equivocation, leaking, undercutting, negativity beyond reason, double-dealing and double standards.

    Is Bush perfect? Hell no! Just better than the alternative.

    Sorry if I interrupted your campaign, carry on.

  56. Funny how having a GOP president and Congress who lead soliders into a war without any semblence of a plan, force our troops to fight a war without proper equipment and armor, and then short our vets on health care leads to a mass movement of vets running as Dems.

    it’s debatable, or more nuanced, if you will. from what i’ve read the Democrats are actively recruiting vets, nttatwwt, i just don’t think military service alone should be a selling point. besides i’m sure the republican vets realize there’s more money to be made in consulting. ;D

    somewhat related:

    Nathaniel Fick: Burned-out troops?

    Maybe, but by design they’re too far removed from politicians to dictate U.S. strategy or timetable in Iraq

  57. Merovign,

    Yes, I know. I myself was once of the same mindset (seriously, google scarshapedstar and you’ll find me agreeing with Sergeant Stryker, Stephen den Beste, the Volokhs, LGF, you name it, circa early 2003).

    Every day Instapundit told me that yet another piece of evidence had surfaced for Saddam’s vast WMD arsenal, and LGF showed me that every Muslim is a suicide bomb waiting to happen, and the lofty prose of Bill Whittle convinced me that we were at a once-in-a-lifetime juncture—standing, as it were, on the brink of destruction—and the history books would write either that America was saved in 2003 or destroyed in 2004 and, by golly, I wanted to be able to look back one day and say that I was on the side of the heroes.

    Who wouldn’t? Besides the French, of course. Look at that oil-for-food! They were in cahoots with Saddam! No wonder they opposed the war – my God, the French want us to get nuked. And the world’s siding with them. Libya’s on the security council now? Oh, come on. The world’s got our hands behind our back and next they’re going to punch us in the gut.

    Thank God George Bush gets it. Those Sore-Loserman defeatists sure don’t. I used to think they were just misguided. You know, honestly, they seem almost like normal people and then they spout off some nonsense about “Bush is a liar!” or “OIL!” as if anyone cares. How many times have they said that now? How many elections have they lost? It’s almost pathological. It’s like Anti-Bush Terrets Syndrome. Of course, even a broken clock, you know the rest. Enron was a hell of a bad deal, but they were way more in bed with Clinton anyway. Besides, it’s the same old crap that’s always gone on, and if they wanted less of it they’d cut down on their beloved big government.

    But some of the Left, though, I can’t excuse. We are engaged in a struggle for our very survival and they act like it’s just another election year and attack our leaders. This is insanity. This is treason. Do they think they’ll be the last ones to be beheaded once we surrender to the Islamofascists? Look how they whine about “civil liberties” every time Bush does whatever he can to get around our pre-9/11 laws and protect us. And their “impartial” friends on the court conveniently try to go along. This is an attack on our country, trying to set up another 9/11 or worse, and the MSM says nary a peep. Gee, I wonder why?

    And then the war began. Where the hell were the WMD? Before the war, almost every day there was something new on the blogs; aluminum tubes and artillery shells and nuclear schematics turned up so regularly that it was couldn’t have been more obvious if Iraq was a volcano and the MSM and Hans Blix were wandering around pretending not to notice all the rock and ash flying around, and if you held it in their face, they’d claim that the US had sent it over in the ‘80s. And that was just what they could show us. I knew Bush was saving up the really big, really damning proofs that would show the folly of the appeasers for what it was, once and for all. I was sure there were a hundred reasons why he couldn’t release it yet, and so were Glenn and Bill and Stephen and Eugene. It would show our hand to Saddam, obviously, for starters. But now, with Baghdad fallen, not a damn thing?

    It wasn’t quite then that I realized I’d been duped, but it was definitely the start of my personal awakening. The whole mindset I described above is certainly well-crafted and self-reinforcing, but it’s still a house of cards, and the lack of WMD was a serious blow. No matter whose fault it was and whether it was through lies or incompetence, I supported the war because I was convinced that there were literally thousands of death machines sitting in Iraq with America’s name on them. And as Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld began to disavow any mention of WMDs, well, it just seemed Orwellian and surreal.

    I also give a lot of credit to Kevin Drum, who sometimes takes a lot of heat for his “reasonability” but seemed a normal enough guy for me to tolerate at the time. Eventually I came to see that Bush and co. really just didn’t know what they were doing, which I would have never realized reading Glenn’s cherry-picked instances of Democrats looking stupid or at least un-PC.

    Anyway, to sum up: it sure is fun to picture yourself fighting an ancient war, but it’s bullshit. And so is the Saddam-France-MSM-Kerry conspiracy. And so is the notion that people like myself hate America in any way, shape, or form. You can wax eloquently about it, and people often do, but it’s all bullshit. The sooner you realize it, the better.

  58. B Moe,

    Sorry for the late response.

    I don’t know, what is a metaphor?

    To put cows in, what a maroon. tongue rolleye

  59. No matter whose fault it was and whether it was through lies or incompetence, I supported the war because I was convinced that there were literally thousands of death machines sitting in Iraq with America’s name on them.

    So you started out supporting the war because you were confused and didn’t understand what was going on, and now you are opposed to the war because you are confused and don’t know what is going on, and we are supposed to care about your opinions now… why?

  60. Picture a couple dozen of us, with axe handles in tow, dropping by to say hello.  It would be like an Alaskan seal hunt.

    Seal hunts are in Canada, brainiac.  Or wait, was that a metaphor?

  61. Picture a couple dozen of us, with axe handles in tow, dropping by to say hello.  It would be like an Alaskan seal hunt.

    Seal hunts are in Canada, brainiac.  Or wait, was that a metaphor?

    He is right natesnake, if you gonna hunt them like they do in Alaska you gotta harpoon the sonsabitches.

  62. “Picture a couple dozen of us, with axe handles in tow, dropping by to say hello.  It would be like an Alaskan seal hunt”.

    (heh) Tell me something….do the alternating layers of cheeto dust and jizz on your palms cause the axe handles (plastic lightsabers) to stick to your hands, or slide from them?  Either way, you might want to *freshen up* a bit before leaving your basement batcave, that spunkfunk you carry is telegraphing your position and eliminating your only chance at taking a swing at a liberal (and you know, when the element of surprise is gone, you’re nothing more than a pasty, out of breath mallow-clot who suddenly realizes that he’s not really cut out for the “reality based” world, not when he could be stuffing his craw with cupcakes!). 

    We’ll see you there, ok? (Please? We’ll bring snackcakes as bait!).

  63. American Chap, like all liberals, you don’t know your history. The plan is obviously to attack from both sides with the fishy stench of week-old semen and herd the Leftists into a Thermopylae of Justice.

  64. We only need 15 seats to take over Congress. A combination of good non-vet fighting Dems and Fighting Dem vets could help bring a landslide victory for the Dems.

    And if my dear Auntie grows testicles, I can call her “Uncle.”

    tw: set

    Yeah, if she grows one, it’s Uncle Helen.

  65. Why is Doug talking about my cock?

  66. Picture a couple dozen of us, with axe handles in tow, dropping by to say hello.  It would be like an Alaskan seal hunt.

    Bring it, bitch.

  67. Fighting Democrat — Gee, odd isn’t it how many of those Dem veterans were nowhere near Iraq.  Or, as one “peace lover” at the Santa Monica rallies told me, “that doesn’t count then, does it?”

    Or has that changed now, too?

  68. Which fighting Dems weren’t any where near Iraq?  Secondly, like you were asshead!

  69. militarytracy — My reply is right there, for everyone to read and see that you can’t.  Are you blind as well as dishonest?

  70. militarytracey—First off, go back and read the service dates on those bios.  Of the first dozen, for example, one, ONE, served in the Middle East as recently as Desert Storm.

    Second, I did nine years in the infantry, PFC to XO of a mechanized infantry company/company team.

    Third, if you want to talk about fighting Democrats, look at the manly stand they just put up at the censure hearing.  How many showed up again?

  71. miltarytracy… and yes, enlisted active duty and went to OCS when I went Reserve. Along the way served as a rifle and mortar platoon leader, battalion NBC defense officer, and a couple of staff and liason positions. This stretches your credulity how?

  72. Militarytracy — Yep.  Enlisted active duty and got sent to OCS when I went reserve. Along the way after my commission I was also a rifle and mortar platoon leader and the battalion NBC Defense Officer.  What stretches your credulity there, Sgt. Rock?

  73. So Buckwheat, let me get this straight…..You did nine years PFC to an XO of a mechanized infantry company/company team?

  74. Yep.  Enlisted active duty, and got sent to OCS when I went Reserve.  What stretches your credulity there, Sgt. Rock.  Along the way, I served as a rifle platoon leader, mortar platoon leader, and battalion NBC defence officer. 

    What exactly is your point?

  75. Test post

  76. militarytracy — Here’s how you do it, skippy.  You do your active time enlisted (starting as an E-3) then you get sent to OCS when you go Reserve.  You do hitches as a rifle platoon leader, mortar platoon leader, NBC defense officer and whatever liason and/or “george” assignments your unit gives you.  How tricky is that?

  77. Third, if you want to talk about fighting Democrats, look at the manly stand they just put up at the censure hearing.  How many showed up again?

    Game.

    Set.

    Match.

  78. Still waiting for a reply from the fighting keyboardist who did nine years to be an E-3…….any day now.

  79. Read all the Bios, sorry fighting keyboardists…..very impressive bunch of Vets.  Tons of Graduates from the Air Force Academy, Tons of Vietnam Vets……hell, one even has a son serving with the 82nd Airborne right now in Iraq!  It looks like some may have not seen combat but they served 20 and even 30 years….beats the fuckin shit out of AWOL Bush and deferments until hell froze over Cheney!Jesus says that jealousy will only hurt you in the end you little cheetoh crumb covered computer warriors!!!  Time you all just submitted to the ass kicking you’re getting by real vets!!!

  80. Any other liberals notice that they like to fudge with the order of the posts on here?  Kind of like how they like their elections too!  What happened to your INTEGRITY you Fighting Keyboardists?  You guys know that without your Integrity you have nothing!

  81. What the fuck are you talking about? “Fudge the order of the posts”? 

    First, I don’t know how to do it—they are time stamped as they come in. Second, why would I want to do that?

    Is everything a neocon conspiracy to you? 

    Go away. You’re adding nothing here.  The “Fighting Keyboardists” trope is very 2004.

  82. Jeff, either your system is screwed or you’re screwing with it.  Two of my posts are over half an hour apart and they are side by side here showing the same posted time.  I suppose the Fighting Keyboardists is 2004 to you, but for the active military it is very 2006.  Don’t fix it if it isn’t broken, and you are still just the cheeto covered fighting keyboardists!

    [If there’s something going wrong with the software—it is daylight savings, so maybe that has something to do with it, I don’t know—it is happening independent of me.  I have better things to do with my Saturday evening than try to “fudge” your posting times – ed.  You want to pay to upkeep the site? Hit the tip jar.  Otherwise, shut the fuck up.

    Oh.  And I took down your comment calling us pussies.  Just didn’t like the tone.]

  83. Did I hit a wittle newve?

    [Only insofar as you’re mooching my bandwidth and have nothing to offer.  What, do you guys get bonus points at Atrios’ site if you get banned from a rightwing blog for being a repetitive, combative, and annoying prick?

    If you want to email me privately and arrange to come kick my ass, fine.  But please, enough of the bullshit here, okay?]

  84. What a terrible event a post time got changed by a half an hour and sparks a hysterical rant of outrage?

  85. I don’t know Atrios, but have friends who do Drinking Liberally with him.  I’ll have to ask him if he’ll give me extra points for getting banned.  As to Dan……dude, what hysterical rant?  I’ve been having a good time, it was more of a question with a giggle.

  86. JAYsus on a Pony

    Do the leftists EVER stray from the cultist script? What.the.fuck. is it with the empty “chickenhawk” meme and the Paragons of Tolerance and Choice attacking a parent for raising their child?

    Oh. That would be raising a child outside of the Left Cult Faith.

    That’s why they apologize for jihadist so often. Apostasy being the keyword and like recognizes like.

  87. Darleen, when have I ever apologized for a Jihadist?

  88. As to Dan……dude, what hysterical rant?

    When one resorts to name calling and ad homenin attacks it is usually because they have nothing valid to say.

    Shrug, I don’t really see what the attraction there could be with this Kos fellow, I determined when he responded to the images of American’s dead and their bodies hanging charred with

    “Screw them, they deserved it” that there was nothing of note on that website except some sick thinking.

    But I do applaud his campaign fund raising and his support of candidates, as long as he stays consistant.

    How many to zero is this guy?

  89. beats the fuckin shit out of AWOL Bush and deferments until hell froze over Cheney!

    Goddang your libreral ass, boy! President Bush was protecting us from the fricking illegals/wetbacks, and the negros had filled all the open slots so Vice-President Cheney did the manly thing and let them do their duty! That’s more than blow-job Bill or cub reporter Gore ever did!

    So f-U, loser! The REAL Americans are runnign this country! And I am so HAPPY that the idiot Iraquis are killing each other off. A civil war is EXACTLY what the doctor ordered for Iraq!

  90. What Civil War?

    Bangladesh was a Civil War deaths on the order of 3 million.

    Sudan was a Civil War the first phase in the South deaths on the order of 3 million.

    Rwanda was a Civil War deaths on the order of 700K

    Dafur in Sudan was a Civil War deaths on the order of 500K.

    So what Civil War in Iraq is everyone talking about besides just hype that is.

  91. Wow, ya’ll are kind of lost and noxious around here.  What the heck are you all talking about?  Something about cults and raising kids and jihadists and apostasy and negroes and wetbacks and blowjobs and f-U loser and Civil Wars?  But nothing really makes sense like 1+1=2.  It’s all disjointed and garbly gook.

  92. OK here is a simple equation

    Kos + campaign fund raising = losing candidates LOL

  93. How so Dan?  I don’t particularly like having Casey Jr shoved down my throat…….but really how so about the whole Kos equation?

  94. i guess you can start here and figure out how many of these candidates won. 

    tw: some have already done the work and could tell you the answer is 0.

  95. Maggie, seems like you’re just a little out of date.  What is up to date is that it looks like the Dems are going to hand you guys your asses this go around.  I don’t exactly know how much pull Kos has in the grand scheme of things, I think it may be a bit reaching to say that he has much to do with total success or failure of candidates.

  96. eh, you asked about dan’s equation, i was just trying to be helpful.

  97. If you don’t like having Casey Jr shoved down your throat, don’t put your face so close to the hole in the stall.

  98. MTracy

    If you’re acting the woof to Markos/Michael al-Moore/Ted Rall/Mommy Sheehan/Retreat Murtha/Me too Pelosi/I got an idea really I do Reid’s warf then being actually, you know, serious about Islamism is something you’ve become invested in to ignore.

  99. militarytwacy —

    First, I tried to post to you six times, the biggest waste of my time since Waterworld.

    Second:

    very impressive bunch of Vets.  Tons of Graduates from the Air Force Academy, Tons of Vietnam Vets……hell, one even has a son serving with the 82nd Airborne right now in Iraq!  It looks like some may have not seen combat but they served 20 and even 30 years

    In short, the Democrats are suddenly actively recruiting the kind of people the Republicans have been putting in Congress for years, the kind of people the Democrats and the left in general have been villifying for the last three decades. Except of course for Captain Cambodia Kerry and his magical flying Swift Boat.

    Forgive me for saying that this is exactly the sort of commitment to principal I’ve come to expect from the Democratic party.

    Did you know that the Congress is actually significantly more likely, per capita, to have a son, daugter, niece, nephew or grandchild in Iraq than the general population?  And guess which party that overwhelmingly represents?  Hint, it don’t start with a D, Skippy…

    Of course, if the Democrats are worried about the military endorsing their politics, they might want to think more about the 1,000,000+ American men and women who have cycled through Iraq so far and are now home talking to their friends and families.

    And could you please, please, oh, fucking please, give the Bush draft dodger crap a rest?  If Rather could have proved it, he wouldn’t have had to resign.  He couldn’t, it did, end of meme.  Catch up.

    Now run along and tell your buds how you spoke truth to power.

  100. Thanks boys146af657cfb9c074a6a1bd71a86c12fc
