That damned MSNBC

What's Mallard raving about today?

MSNBC, Climate Change, Astroturfers.

What? I mean...seriously. What?

...Because

"Obama is a lying Kenyan-born socialist-commienazi who wants to destroy America by forcing your Grandmother to get an abortion performed by illegal immigrants before her execution by death panel!!"

is equivalent to

"It's been a cool summer."

...Which is more fun to watch? Tinsley's persecution complex? Or his delusions of grandeur? (And is there even a difference?)

"...who wants to indoctrinate your children to socialism by injecting them with a mandatory "Swine Flu shot," and when YOU get sick deny you health coverage if your voting records show that you voted Republican, and then guillotine you (that's FRENCH!) to harvest your organs."

Excellent, Tog, but you ended the first paragraph too early. I know, it's hard to keep up with these people.

exanonymous said...

Yes, it has been a cool summer, Mallard.

On land. In parts of the US.

Australia had it's warmest winter on record. More importantly, ocean temperatures have hit a record high in over 100 years of record keeping.

But by all means, stick your head in that sand and equate it to health debate shout-downs. We all know reality is based on who can holler at a US politician the loudest.

The most incredible thing about today's "comic" is that it has Mallard watching not Fox but MSNBC!

Or has Glenn Beck lost Fox another viewer?

Jazzbumpa said...

Yeah, it's been a cool summer hear ion the midwest. Meanwhile their asses are frying in Texas and So. California.

That's fucking TEXAS, Tinkley!

CW in LA said...

My family in Seattle is saying this has been about the hottest, nastiest summer they can remember.

I know that doesn't prove anything either. But, while I realize that in the cult of right-wingnuttery knowing stuff is elitist, it's still better to listen to actual scientist instead of cherry-picking cool weather and spouting off "Take that, Al Gore, Hur hur hur".

Tog said...

In lieu (FRENCH?) of the usual plastering of irrelevant smear-campaign linkage from the bottom-feeders, here's:

"But It's Been A Cool Summer!!"

and

"Real-Life Death Panels!!

Robert said...

"It's been a cool summer, folks."
"How cool was it?"
"This summer was so cool that thousands of square miles of ice melted off the polar ice caps."

Am I doing this right?

Rewinn: Much to your dismay, Fox has been doing quite well with both the Beck and Hannity shows. Obama will have his FCC czar Mark Lloyd look into this right away.

Fox News Glenn Beck scores top cable rating with interview of Rush Limbaugh. See the short version here. Subject being the FCC czar and what he and Obama plan to do to remove conservative talk radio from the air waves.

Much of America has been watching Beck's outing of Obama's czar's. Green czar, Van Jones in particular, has caught the attention of many voters the past week or two. We shall see if Obama rids his administration of both whack-jobs or will Obama prove us correct that he, Jones and Lloyd are all birds of the same feather.

BTW, the city and state where I live have set records for the coldest summer ever. So much for the Global Warming Truthers.

Bill the Splut said...

If it doesn't reach 900 degrees in the summer, "global warming" is WRONG!

If it gets "cold" in the "winter," "global" "warming" is "WRONG!"

If you can't prove "Obama" wasn't not born on "Mars," "global warming" is SOCIALIST!

If you think "climate change" means the world only gets hotter every day, you have NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. You're too willfully ignorant to even pretend that you should be allowed to participate in this "debate."

"In my life I haven't died yet, so that proves I'm IMMORTAL! I'd better keep my gun and broadsword around in case of attack by Highlanders!"

OK, who left the door open? The vermin got in again.

Kaitlyn said...

He does one every August - it has to be sweltering, so maybe thinking this cools him down.

I was on my phone this afternoon and was dripping sweat. Just a short walk.

Not, by itself, evidence of anything except that Memphis is unbearably hot and it should be against the Geneva convention for people to go to school or work when it's hot. (And since I'm hot all the time, I'll decide what days are cold enough. Of course I can do this, after all, as anon as told us, liberals have a lot of power.)

Tog said...

Anon thinks his state = the world.

...Which is stupid enough, but Anon doesn't realize that he's missed the boat, that Tinsley (in lockstep with his idol, Rush) has already acknowledged the reality of climate change. The foolishness they still cling to is that climate change "isn't serious," and is caused by cow farts or the mean ol' sun or something else. Anything but pollution, because that would mean the hippies are right. NOOOOOOOO!!

Not serious? Older folks may remember that Rush used to dismiss the idea that ozone depletion would lead to skin cancer (which was virtually unheard of at the time). The more things change...

"Much of America" (Wikipedia calls this sort of thing "weasel wording") has been sitting in a theater enjoying Hollywood's artistic "x-ray" visions of teenagers being ground to death by a truck. What's your point, anon?

Ah yes, the classic "weather=climate" canard. No matter how many times you explain this, denialist fucktards will NEVER, EVER GET IT. I want to say that they're like five-year-olds, but five-year-olds are typically actually willing to learn stuff they don't know. Dimwits like anonymous chickenshit are positively *revel* in their gross stupidity.

rewinn said...

Kinda funny how presidential appointees get called "czars" now.

It was always a funny title but now it's applied to whomever Obama buys a sandwich from. Some kids at Subway is now Obama's "sandwich czar".

As for Fox, since Rupert Murdoch willing to lose millions of bucks on it each year of its first five years, its clear that actually making money is not its purpose; its a propaganda channel, pure and simple. Spouting ratings points is not really relevant to anything; heck, "The Simpsons" would beat out "Face the Nation" any time they matched up but would we really want our nation lead by Homer Simpson?

Anonymous said...

This "Geox" thing, one of the few members of the D&C blog. This thing totally loses it on a regular basis. But, you can tell how intelligent he is.

Very limited vocabulary, and yes he believes he is definitely a tough guy. Here it is at the keyboard. Always under control.

CW in LA said...

The thing is, rewinn, we did have Homer Simpson as our president from 2001 to January of this year, with Mr. Burns as vice president, and Lisa's conscience and Marge's common sense nowhere in sight.

Patrick said...

So it's to be random links then, is it?

Re: Anonymous@10:12 PM

Welcome to the Internet, noob. Keep trying, and perhaps someday your trolling will rise above the level of Pure Amateur Hour.

Maybe.

Sez the guy who exploded in inarticulate rage when I made fun of the macho bullshit in dumbass truck ads and who subsequently challenged me to a fistfight. But hey, if projecting your gender insecurity onto a random person on the internet really gets you through the night, I say go for it. I'm not in high school anymore. I don't mind.

exanonymous said...

If climate change isn't real and man has no impact, exactly why did the Bush administration have to classify and hide photos of ice covering shrinking in size in the arctic region?

There is nothing in those photos to compromise the security of the nation. There is nothing in those photos to encourage terrorism. They are really just scientific data available at a higher resolution than other surveys. I guess they were inconvenient.

Geox:
You continue to make a total ass of yourself. You cannot control your mouth and post without the abusive language and name calling. And, No! I did not challenge you to a fistfight. What I did say is that you would not say to me or anyone else face to face, what you say in your pathetic posts at the safety of your keyboard.

Because, if you did, you would probably get your ass kicked. Got it? You say you are not in high school anymore? You certainly could fool many people. Grow up and act like a man. You it seems are the one with a "gender problem."

Anonymous said...

Oh yes, another one bites the dust. Obama in CYA mode. I guess Mr. Beck does make a difference.

GeoX said...

Wow--literally zero sense of self-awareness.

You really ARE using this site to work out your horrific mess of tangled neuroses, aren't you? As I said, go for it, but don't expect other people to be overly respectful. We're certainly not laughing with you.

Thus does Anonyninny make it clear that years of having his tongue anchored deep in Cheney's rectum have robbed him of any understanding of the very concept of dignity.

Pointy-headed scientists keep telling us that it will get "dark" when "night" comes. Let me put this in terms anyone can understand: it's bright outside right now! SUNBURN bright! Where's your "night" now, genius?

WV: tries [fails!]
