By far the least offensive of the widely celebrated American holidays

By far the least offensive of the widely celebrated American holidays

I had a brilliant, if a bit ghoulish, yet delightfully simple idea for a costume this year:

Too soon?

I’m a generous guy; if I had friends or someplace to go we could even coordinate:

Oh well, there’s always next year. Besides, with the state of the world the way it is, I’m sure there’ll be at least one new costume for us in 365 day’s time.

But seriously folks, Happy Halloween!1

A more apt and thoughtful comparison.

Sarah Palin isn’t Tina Fey; she’s Peter Griffin.

Never go in against a Illinois Senator when America is on the line!

It is my sincere hope, that this presidential election will be the last time anything anyone did, preceding, during, or directly after the Vietnam War has any relevance, real or imaginary, to American politics.

Why are we rewarding men for getting caught up in one of the classic blunders? Never get involved in a land war in Asia.

Those who forget history are doomed to be imprisoned in a concentration camp by it.

Turning shit into gold (flaked shit)

As if there weren’t reason enough to vote for Barack Obama, he goes and does something like this. I don’t know why I’m just hearing of this now, but this is some serious compellevision™ right here. It’s safe to say my spell was bound and gagged while my gob was thoroughly smacked throughout.

What a wonderful and unexpected quality to have in a potential president. He brings out the best in, literally, the worst.

Now, don’t get me wrong, he’s still an insufferable skid mark on the cultural landscape, but watching this, I simply want to headbutt him in the solar plexus, not stomp on his testicles while sodomizing him with a loofa.1

If Obama can make a giant, bellicose buffoon look good (relatively speaking), what the fuck can’t he do?

Two adult tickets, that’ll be $700b.

No wonder this campaign feels so familiar. I already saw it in the 7th grade. If I recall correctly, it wasn’t too bad either.1 At least McCain doesn’t hate Jews. He keeps keeps them as pets.

I clearly realize this would have been much funnier and possibly even popular like two weeks ago, but I kept getting distracted by more farcical events and far be it from me to be timely or wise.

Also, I’ve mostly given up on this site being about anything but politics until the election. I have no clue as to what the hell I’m going to talk about come Nov. 5th, but until then, stay gold ponyboy!

  1. This joke is so obvious I assumed someone already made it, but google didn’t think so and who I am to question the deity of the 21st century. Please accept this small token, my lord. []

Double True.

Three conversations, some real, some imagined, on the delicate topic of race

An elderly supporter at a McCain rally:

Quinell: Obama is an Arab.
McCain: No ma’am, [Obama’s] a decent family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues.
Me: So, obviously not an A-rab.

An interview with said supporter:

Reporter: His father was Muslim, and he’s a Christian.
Quinnell: Yeah, but he’s still got Muslim in him. So that’s still part of him. I got all the stuff from the library and I could send you all kinds of stuff on him.
Me: Whoever’s handing out those flyers is doing a fucking amazing job.

In an alternate, slightly more plausible universe:

Reporter: His mother was white and he’s biracial.
Black people: Yeah, but he’s still got White in him. So that’s still part of him. I got all the stuff from the library and I could send you all kinds of stuff. Pretty much the entire History section is just century after century of unspeakable atrocities committed by his ancestors, so you can understand our reluctance.

You always hurt the ones you love.

You always hurt the ones you love.

She made me hit her.

In case you’re not aware of the insanity, I think I may have just found my Halloween costume.

Scientific fact: the flyer is the most effective means of communication

This is a thing that is real.

Review time:


If we somehow did elect an America hating madman, hell bent on destroying the “very fabric of democracy,” short of lobbing some nukes on his first day of office, he could hardly do a better job than this guy. A man without hope, is a man without fear.

Also, I sympathize, as I too, have a middle name derived from a barbaric Middle Eastern mythology. It’s Hebrew. Stay strong brother.

  1. Also, so many people have forgotten about 9/11. Looking around, it’s like it never happened. You’d never know. []

Who?

According to the internet, the candidate most inline with my views this election is Cynthia McKinney, with an impressive 81% compatibility. Not too far behind, at 73% is that other one, you know, the likely 44th President of the United States. At a *cough* still respectable 43% is this guy:

And/or Kakow

From now on when I think of Stormtroopers they invariably sound like this:
