Ok, so I'm foul-mouthed, easily irritated, and often write things which are in no way conducive to having a constructive conversation about anything.
On the plus side, I'm aware of this.
Over at Little Green Footballs, on the other hand:
8/16/2002: Birds of a Feather
Screwy Louie Farrakhan is going to stage a rally in Georgia to support Arab boot-licker Cynthia bin McKinney.
I don't think they are.
Although it's good to read this stuff, in a way -- white people generally have enough sense of self-preservation not to say shit like this when I'm around in what we'll jokingly call the real world -- it also reinforces my belief that we're all doomed. And that that isn't actually a bad thing. Given a choice between death and sharing a planet with Laurence Simon:
Okay, so we've got Screwie Louie and Jesse the Jackass on the record... that just leaves Irrevered Al and we've got all a hat-trick.
So, when all are together rallying for Cynthia McKinney, should they be called The Three Agreedoes, The Three Scrooges, or The Blaxis of Evil?
I'll take death, thanks
In fact, Biggie Size it.
Update: dcthornton weighs in, with the sort of unique insight and penetrating perception that cause me to forget his blog even exists most of the time.
Meanwhile, at Mister Charlie's, something calling itself Jason O'Toole cheerfully declares:
Mckinney is now reaching out for that all-important black nazi vote!
Perhaps this caused Godwin's Law to kick in; it's the second comment, and the last at this time.
The first was Laurence repeating part of his little joke.
Gee, the sky's gone all dark and ominous. Maybe God is listening to me after all.
Update 2: Good shit - Remix of Front 242's Welcome to Paradise in the Industrial Radio show, about an hour and 40 minutes in.
Dumb shit - Amish Tech Support.
Update: Courtesy of COINTELPRO Tool (and anyone using that name is, quite clearly, an idiot):
C-SPAN has finally posted video of the McKinney-Majette debate from last Friday.
Enjoy. If that's the right word. I don't think it is.
Update 8/17: Jason makes with the balanced view again. But I swear he only does that so I'm the one who gets shot first.
