The term used by Secretary of Education, Ms. Margaret Spellings, to discredit her adversaries who are challenging the failures of the President's No Child Left Behind policy. This arrogant bitch, who pilloried PBS for showing a lesbian couple making maple syrup but can't even keep a marriage together, should be fucking forced to go back to school to learn some common sense and decency. Rather than bragging about her "Princess of Darkness" cape to the New York Times, she should be forced to fuck the Prince of Darkenss, Richard Perle, since ignorance, violence and stupidity seem to be the cornerstones of her sex education policies. Do us all a favor and go bury your head in a Texas oilfield, where you belong.

Diving for hairy ass
Benie McGuirk, the resident homo homophobe on Imus in the Morning this morning discussing his favorite topic -- man butt, men's assholes -- sending the the supposedly sober crack whore, Sid Rosenberg, into fits of girlish hysterical giggling. These poor assholes wouldn't even get laid in any respectable gay establishment, but their schtick does keep Don Imus amused. The big questions is what do these men's wives do to get it on?

What can we say but "Semper fi"?
The royal we being James Taranto of Wall Street Journal's polemic OpinionJournal commenting on a letter apparently written by Marc Fencil, a senior at Ohio University who is also a Marine currently stationed in Iraq and published in The Post, the student newspaper. Fencil, sarcastically criticizing students who had staged a "die-in" to protest the “liberation” of Iraq, invites them to shower, shave and head on over for a real “die-in.”
While Fencil does make some great points, humorous too – and while it is easy to take aim at annoying, pampered university students who have never seen a day of combat resort to staging “die-ins” while real people are being blown to bits -- he goes beyond that, unfortunately weakening his argument and revealing his own lack of understanding about what he’s doing there.
There is a man here, we just call him al-Zarqawi, but we think he'd be delighted to sit down and give you some advice on how you can further disrespect the victims of Sept. 11 and the 1,600 of America's bravest who have laid down their lives for a safer world.
Actually, protesting the war in Iraq has as much to do with disrespecting victims of September 11th than America’s stated desire to rid the world of evil dictators has to do wit the “re-election” of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. The widely publicized report by the 911 Commission found no tie to Saddam Hussein and September 11th, despite the foul-mouthed Dick Cheney’s protestations to the contrary. Marc Fencil may have good reasons for choosing to become a Marine, and his motives may well be admirable, but his sacrifice is of his own choosing. Fencil fails to appreciate that the “die-ins” might also be designed to draw attention to the perhaps hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians who are maimed, dead or orphaned, for whom the opening of a school means precious little. To characterize those sentiments as somehow disrespectful to the victims of September 11th is not only a stretch, it’s simply delusional.
And while students staging protests against a war must appear as a joke to servicemembers fighting, it shouldn’t be forgotten that thousands of American students peacefully protesting for the release of Nelson Mandela, while not quite the same as laboring in lime quarries on Robben Island for twenty five years, eventually did have a collective impact on world opinion and Mandela’s eventual release.
Fencil also writes that if Michael Moore “can shave and lose enough weight to fit into a pair of camouflage utilities, then he can come too!” If a pampered, overweight “journalist” like James Taranto could fit into a pair of camouflage utilities perhaps he too should head on over. Unlikely though. This clown prefers to inflame Muslim extremism so that Wall Street Journal writers end up being treated like Daniel Pearl rather than Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena.
Without minimizing the sacrifices made by Marc Fencil or his choice to fight for his country, it’s disheartening to think that he’s been successfully duped into thinking September 11th has anything to do with Iraq.

I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect connection but we have seen
some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country. Certainly nothing new, but we seem to have run through a spate of courthouse violence recently that's been on the news and I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in - engage in violence.
Senator John Conryn, in a sickening justification for the violence perpetrated against judges by cold-blooded murderers. The same justification Tim McVeigh used for the violence against those in the Alfred Murrah federal building. Or Ward Churchill referring to the victims of September 11 attacks as "little Eichmanns". Well all you killers and murdereers out there, you now have a congressionally-sanctioned excuse. Show those Nazi, activist judges what you're made of. Why, with rhetoric like this from an eleted official, who needs to eliminate the right to fillibuster after all? Bill Frist should be really relieved. This is what a "culture of life" looks like folks. Pretty, isn't it?
