"Eminently Quotable"



Do you know the difference between a woman with PMS and a snarling, Doberman pinscher? The answer is lipstick. Do you know the difference between a terrorist and a woman with PMS? You can negotiate with a terrorist.

--From Hagee's book What Every Man Wants In A Woman



Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible, and I repudiate them. I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee's endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well.

--McCain statement released on Thursday.


Good man, Johnny.

Everyone knows that you can't negotiate with a terrorist.

What? No learned discourse on why the really flat earth is 5000 years old from the let's do some science guys, today...that's what I come here for. I want more of those petitions begging dentists and linoleum engineers to state that there is no such thing as climate change...where's that material? Have you completely given up and decided that you're just going to stick to perverted, right wing sexual innuendos and to rationalizing violent Christian bigot stuff...is that all there is? You need to get back to giving us the real funny material...making asses of yourselves is what puts asses in the seats. Get back in the battle and give it at least one more try.

What?

"that's what I come here for."

You're lying. You come here because you're a masochist who likes feeling pain.

"I want more of those petitions begging dentists and linoleum engineers to state that there is no such thing as climate change..."

Better than political ideologues posing as "scientists," simian.

And I hope you aren't Neo. I'd be really disappointed--but more sure than ever about my position, and yours.

And not once has anyone here denied warming or a changing climate (despite the "change" now indicating cooling trend).

That's how you sniveling liars argue. You mischaracterize the opposition's position (in this case transmogrifying rational skepticism about causes to denial of effect) and from there leap to hyperbolic conclusions (to being flat-earthers) for the purpose of making the opposition look ridiculous and so be discredited in lieu of arguing your own position on any of its merits, because they don't exist.

And you have no built-in checks and balances in your philosophy to make you feel any shame for doing that (if you're even aware of it, having learned by rote what could not be spelled).

"Have you completely given up and decided that you're just going to stick to perverted, right wing sexual innuendos and to rationalizing violent Christian bigot stuff?"

Easy there. Nothing wrong with a little sauciness and comic relief that's all in good fun.

You sound like on of those uptight Puritans that you keep characterizing conservatives as being.

" ...is that all there is? You need to get back to giving us the real funny material..."

RU kidding? Republicus is more fun than a barrel of monkeys (that you simians turn this blog into every time you gate-crash).

"...making asses of yourselves is what puts asses in the seats."

You're busted. Thank you for confirming what I said above, that that's your debating tactic:

"You mischaracterize the opposition's position...for the purpose of making the opposition look ridiculous and so be discredited in lieu of arguing your own position on any of its merits, because they don't exist."

The only reason why you jackasses don't take your seats is because your posteriors are so sore from the whipping they get, so you just hop around and bray.

"Get back in the battle and give it at least one more try."

The war is over. This is all just counter-insurgency stuff against trolls who barge in here wearing a bomb vest and only end up blowing up themselves.

Your pests.

This one was so precious...see, we don't need to mischaracterize positions like Schiavo is so alivo, dentists are too real climatologists, the skydaddy like done the earth 5000 yrs. ago and put us in charge, we'll see real people dying before we'll let anyone take a stem cell from discarded tissue, babies are never illegally aborted, evolution is done by a magical being. In fact, we couldn't beat that stuff with a stick...we like you just the way you are. No one could make you more ridiculous than you do yourselves. Listen, America is laughing...and voting.

You weren't too happy about that last time around in '04, Karl.

Karl mischaracterized:

"...like Schiavo is so alivo..."

She was alive. And her loving parents wanted her kept that way. Not that you'd understand, since you have to argue that a gestating human is like a piece of snot, and that the mother shouldn't think otherwise when presented with the option to abort.

"...dentists are too real climatologists..."

Dentists are scientists. All climate skeptics from the scientific field are not dentists, anyway, nor are none of them climatologists, as you sleazily imply.

Furthermore, there's a whole bunch of Global Warming "scientists" and "experts" on your side of the equation who are not only not climatologists, but not scientists, either, so you're doubly-sleazy for implying otherwise.

"...the skydaddy like done the earth 5000 yrs..."

More like six. I don't subscribe to that Creationist narrative, and never wrote that I did. And you're a triple-sleaze for asserting otherwise by your baseless accusation.

"...and ago and put us in charge..."

Who else is in charge? Chimps?

Only sometimes, when sleazy Left gets power.

"...we'll see real people dying before we'll let anyone take a stem cell from discarded tissue..."

That's a lie. Bush sanctioned available embryonic stem cells for R & D.

Furthermore, embryonic stem cells are inferior to adult stem cells. The only reason why you could possibly be griping is that we no longer need to take embryonic stem cells from aborted humans and that takes away from your sleazy argument that abortion can be a good thing.

"...babies are never illegally aborted..."

"Babies," Karl? Congratulations. That's quite a step up from "tissue."

"...evolution is done by a magical being."

Well, the way Darwinists pull rabbits out of a hat...

Try again, Karl.

And next time, think before you blurt.

Monkey pretending he hasn't had his ass kicked.

Oh, last time around was '06...not '04...see, six comes after 4. We liked that a lot. Next time will be even better. It took the country a while to catch on...now, it's completely disgusted.

Hey, buddy, I liked that dentists are scientists thing...very strong!! Do you see now why you're a national joke...what, not yet? Here's a clue, take the fingers out of your ears and stop screaming; you'll hear REALITY.

Karl projected:

"Monkey pretending he hasn't had his ass kicked."

Thank you for my next post.

"Oh, last time around was '06..."

Only if you think that the two year musical chairs of the legislative branch of government is more important than the four-year throne of the executive one.

And judging from the record of accomplishments-- and approvals that are lower than Bush's, no less-- that the legislative branch has had since '06, your "VICTORY-IS-OURS!" gloating is risible.

"...six comes after 4."

Not when we've been discussing the presidential horse races and their precedents, dummkopf.

"We liked that a lot."

I really hope it helped you and your crowd come out of that mass, psychotic breakdown you had from the succesive concussions of '04, '02, AND '00.

I was getting worried about you guys.

"Next time will be even better."

It can't get any worse, Karl. Look at your candidates.

And now your king-making party elder has a brain tumor.

And the surge is working.

And the economy is still afloat despite all the holes you try to punch into consumer confidence.

Karl Rove never "frog-marched."

Bush/Cheney were never impeached.

And B. Hussein Osama is looking worse and worse every week.

Luckily for you, so is McCain.

"It took the country a while to catch on...now, it's completely disgusted."

That's exactly what happened by 2000, and why W. is a two-termer, Karl.

"Hey, buddy, I liked that dentists are scientists thing...very strong!!"

You don't think that dentists can be classified under the umbrella term of "scientists," Karl, but politicians, Hollywood celebritries, and obnoxious, juvenile blog trolls can?

"Do you see now why you're a national joke...?"

Like the Clinton's? Al Gore? John Kerry? John Edwards? The Democratic Congress? Code Pink? Joseph Wilson IV? Michael Moore? Air America?

Left-wing bloggers?

"what, not yet? Here's a clue, take the fingers out of your ears and stop screaming; you'll hear REALITY."

I'm all ears, Karl.

KOBE–The world is losing momentum in the battle against global warming, the UN climate chief warned on Saturday, urging environmental ministers from wealthy nations to revive the effort by setting clear targets for reducing greenhouse gases.

The ministers gathered in the western Japanese city of Kobe for a three-day meeting as evidence mounted that rising world temperatures have been taking a toll on the earth at a faster rate than previously forecast.

The officials from the Group of Eight countries, joined by representatives from other countries including China and other organizations, were to lay the foundations for the upcoming G8 summit in northern Japan in July.

UN climate chief Yvo de Boer told the Associated Press on the sidelines that he was concerned about stalling momentum behind international talks to forge a global warming pact by December 2009 to succeed the Kyoto Protocol. Its first phase ends in 2012.

"Much of the enthusiasm and ambition that we saw in Bali with the launch of negotiations doesn't seem to be present," he said, referring to a meeting on the Indonesian resort island in December, when some 190 countries decided on a timetable for talks on the new climate pact.

De Boer cited a recently announced U.S. climate plan that would allow an increase in emissions, Canada's indication that it will not meet its obligations under the Kyoto agreement, and European industry's skepticism about the EU goal of cutting emissions by 20 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020.


I guess aren't making the Kool-Aid like they used to. ;)

OMG... The truth is starting to slip out...

Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) is seen in a video that has surfaced on the Web saying that Democrats “sort of stretched the facts” in the 2006 elections about their ability to end the Iraq war.

In a video , posted to YouTube on Thursday, Kanjorski reflects on the Democrats’ approach to the war in 2006 and said they pushed the rhetoric “as far as we can to the end of the fleet — didn’t say it, but we implied it — that if we won the congressional elections, we could stop the war.

“Now, anybody who’s a good student of government would know it wasn't true,” he said. “But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress — we sort of stretched the facts.”

The video was dated Aug. 28, 2007, by the person who posted it. The remarks are not placed in a larger context.

Republicans reacted Friday by calling for Kanjorski to apologize.

“For Paul Kanjorski to admit that Democrats campaigned in ’06 on a fraudulent agenda to end the war not only exposes his own calculated efforts to fool the voters of his district, but it also raises the question of whether this was a coordinated effort by the Democratic Party as a whole,” said a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, Ken Spain. “Paul Kanjorski should be ashamed of himself for using our troops in harm’s way as political pawns for his own partisan agenda.”
