Thoughtgun Blast

Congresscritter Alan Grayson (D):

I just want to make sure I get this straight. Eight years of listening to Democrat congresscritters compare our troops to the Khmer Rouge, Democrat congresscritters opining that President Bush enjoyed sending young men to die for his own amusement and nothing more, Democrat congresscritters doing whatever they could to sabotage the success of the Iraq War and American foreign policy in the Middle East, and even a hint of wondering whether some of these arseclowns might not have America's best interests at heart was met with cries of "Don't you dare question their patriotism!"

But this Grayson creature redoubles on his "[Republicans want you to] die quickly!" comment with a little improv about Republicans being “foot-dragging, knuckle-dragging Neanderthals.”

And when folks react with a "hey wait a minute with the divisive rhetoric" we get told to put on our big boy pants and stop whining? Example.

Hello? McFly?


Wow, my opinion about a, what, 40 year-old criminal case? Bated breath, I can sense it.

Look, I don't know jack about Polanski, his movies, or any details. I just recently saw Chinatown for the first time and yeah, I liked it mostly.

Whatever. He drugged and buggered a little girl without her permission. He plead GUILTY. Before sentencing could be carried out he FLED JUSTICE. That means he's a rapist and a child molester.

I looked it up.

He could get beaten to death with red hot shovels and I'd be more worried about metal fatigue than his sorry life. Wouldn't piss on him if he were on fire, blah blah blah.

But of course I've read, over the last couple of days, the hollywood "elite" bleating in his defense. After all, what's a little child-rape between friends? And of course I'm suitably outraged, "harrumph harrumph - harrumph harrumph."

But I'm driving home tonight listening to Air America - Nicole Sandler I think the hostesses name is - and she's got some wanker on with her and the topic comes up and I think they're actually going to not be lefty douche bottles about it. The dude seems like he's a little creeped out by the whole thing. But actually he just thinks that since Polanski plead guilty he should just serve his couple of months and put it behind him. Who knows what "horrible demons" good ol' RP was suffering from when he forced himself into a drugged little girl, he says. Then the Sandler chick says something similar - just get it over with. And then they made a joke about quaaludes and not being able to help themselves or something. I can only assume that quaaludes were what RP gave to the 13 year old girl that he raped.

Pretty funny, huh? Rape jokes. Child rape jokes. On national radio.

Oh, the fun.

But the thing that struck me was, not once in that 5 or 10 minute segment did either one of them mention the girl. The victim. The child. It was like they were talking about a sack of parking violations in a state that you went to college in that you have to get cleared up when you want to get a job there later. I found it...


Sarah Palin:

Wow, they still hate her. I kinda sorta still don't get why. I mean, yeah, I get the "she's a purple monkey in the brown monkey cage so she must be ripped apart" thing, but man, such blind and palpable hatred. It's quite unattractive.

Ain't it all the truth. Remember on Polanski that even if the 13 year old begged for him to do it, it is still statutory rape. Feeding her alcohol and drugs is also illegal. Fleeing the country to avoid prosecution, ditto. Federal offense then...So, how about a few years in a federal guest facility as a room-mate to Big Leroy?

As for Sarah Palin, they are simply scared to death of her. She breaks all of their molds and people like her because she looks like someone who is honest with them, unlike the paleolithic, bentozoic, bottom-feeding slugs that inhabit the political elite of this once-great nation.

The other day I was driving home listening to NPR (which keeps my blood pressure up and lets me state that I am open to input from all over the political spectrum) and they did a story on Polanski, leading off with the news that he fled the country after pleading guilty to "having sex with a 13-year old girl."

I nearly drove into a tree while going hoarse shouting and banging on the steering wheel, which happens a lot when I keep myself open to other points of view from around the political spectrum.

Given that he doped this girl with champagne and qualudes, and anally raped her, while she asked him to stop and to let her go home, I'm not sure that "had sex with" is a really adequate description.

What's that line from the Country Music song:

If you look and listen close, a man will show you what he is."

And I'm not talking about Polanski.

Made. Of. WIN.

I listen to NPR too just to see what the looneys on the other side of the political spectrum are being spoon fed since they can't seem to parse through and get real information on their own.

I originally didn't want to blog on Polanski, but the whole thing seems to be symptomatic of a larger issue.

Love the shovel line... it'll be entering my daily verbiage in 3...2...1...
