That damned Western Media

What's Mallard raving about today?

Pirates, The Media

When one is reduced to attempting to score cheap points by making the absurd claims on display this week, it's a clear sign that you are intellectually, morally, and spiritually bankrupt.

Not that Mallard hasn't been thus bankrupt since the start, but this week he's totally jumped the shark.

Yeah, I should be inured to this kinda thing, but I'm still sort of stunned that he managed to string this weakass premise out for an entire week. And don't you love the way he just has to drag race into it? It's just an itch he can't resist scratching. As I've probably said somewhere before, I cannot imagine why Republicans don't get more black support.

My brain hurts. To many words for a dead horse.

What is "western media" anyways? When I look it up it seems to be referring to the US, the UK, and Australia, which doesn't make sense.

Sounds like just another buzzword. Let me do some! FACISM! STALIN! RED! LIBRULS!

Oh silly media, don't you know that after the Civil Rights movement, racism completely disappeared forever? Why must you insist on claiming EVERYTHING is racist?

...Hey, wait a second. When WAS the last time the media called something racist? Come to think of it, when was the last time the media ever took a STANCE on anything?

Ok, so now the Somali pirates are on his radar. For the next two days, do we get to see Mallard slamming Obama for his weak response to these pirates, like we had from Fox News three weeks ago? Should be fun.

WTF?

No... seriously... W -- T -- F ???

Googling "Somali Pirates black", first 3 results:

Edmonston Sun: "Black Bart would be proud' of Somali pirates‎"
ScientificBlogging.com: "Somali Pirates? They're Nothing Compared To Rogue Black Holes"Rush Limbaugh: President Obama Ordered the Killing of Three Black Muslim Kids
The entire 1st page of results has zero reference to race except by Rush Limbaugh

Funny how Limbaugh is suddenly sympathetic to blacks and Muslims when these pirates get shot. I guess thieves and murderers are his favorite kind of people.

Hey, let's not forget that Rush also has amicable relationships with drug dealers and Thai pimps, too!

A NLC pointed out, and it's something I also said recently, ridiculing Tinkley isn't even fun any more.

Instead, I will point out that 120 years ago, Toledo, Ohio had a baseball team called the Black Pirates.

I still haven't figured out what he's been complaining about. Mallard's pirate week reminds me of the recent "tea parties": the rage is there, but the target is either vague or nonsensical.

WV: bolood. Bleauh! I vant to suck your bolood!

Factinista-

You missed Rush's point. I'll have to get back to you however after suitably immersing myself in sy neocon world as to what it actually was. I'm told it was a clever commentary of something to do with Obama and liberals and the fact that I missed it means I didn't listen and am stupid.

wv: bless
huh, a real word.
