Here's the good news:

That shit Lee Atwater was able to reconstitute his legacy and "apologize" for screwing all of us over royally, receiving all those whom he had maligned at his deathbed or by proxy. That other shit Breitbart was afforded no such opportunity - unless there's some forged apologia, he will forever be destined to be remembered as a lying, devious, creepy sack o' shit who took advantage of the (often willful) ignorance and (arrant) stupidity of many his fellow Americans. I wonder if the equivalent of E.L. Doctorow will be writing a book about his children's lives in the manner in which Doctorow wrote about the Rosenberg's children, The Book Of Daniel. Somehow I doubt it...

Old joke about a hated man who finally dies...

this is often told with changes to the background of the deceased. The one I heard when I was a kid was in Yiddish, but this version will suffice:

Meanest man in County Cork dies and the kind-hearted pastor of his church, preparing to say the funeral mass, can't think of single nice thing to say about the bastard in his eulogy.

So he asks around town, looking for anyone who has one good word for the deceased to say at the mass, and finds no takers. He gets the idea to call over to the church in the village where the old man was born, figuring that there might be someone there who remembers him from when he was a boy and who might then have at least one fond memory to impart. The priest over there is a very old man himself, and he grew up with the dear departed and offers to come to the funeral and say the nicest thing he can think of.

Day of the funeral comes, the old priest arrives, it's time for him to give the eulogy. He totters up to the pulpit, looks out at the very few people who've bothered to show up, and says the one nice thing there is to say about the dead old man:

"His brother was worse."

Next up on the RW agenda: Reinstitution of slavery in the USA...

first: "Voluntary", then "Mandatory".

You think this is "outrageous" or "outlandish"? Think again, folks. so you probably thought contraception would be off the table, and where are we now in the 'discussion'? They advocate sticking probes up your mother's, your sister's, your wife's vagina, for the good of the country (sic and sick). There is NOTHING "off the table" for these extremists.

Breitbart Dental Thread:

He: (RW Lawyer): I know he's probably not your favorite guy, but did you hear that Andrew Breitbart died today?

Me: (Telling the truth): Yeah, I just heard from my receptionist.

He: You going to celebrate?

Me: No....every man's death diminishes me. He wasn't that old.

He: And if he had been old?

Me: Then I suppose that I'd be high-fiving every liberal I know...which is many liberals. Feel better? Is that what you wanted me to say? 'Cause I said it.

He: You're funny...

Me: Do you want me to go into a Joe-Pesci-in-Goodfellas-about-being-funny tirade now??

He: I'm here to get this cavity filled.

Me: Well, that's what I thought when I came into the room, but somehow I got distracted.

He: You should have been a lawyer.

Me: I was just thinking the same thing about you.

He laughed and we got on with it...and NO, I did NOT hurt him.

I'm in love with Tamron Hall, and this is why:

Not just because she is intellectual, has a brilliant use of language, interviews well, and is gorgeous...

But because she REALLY put it to this one RW asshole during the 2008 campaign, when he stated that the Obamas and Reverend Wright were neighbors.

She stopped him on a dime and MADE him retract that statement before she would let him continue. She stated emphatically that she lived in Chicago, she was a reporter in Chicago for ten years, and she knew EXACTLY where each lived and that is was a LIE. The idjit hemmed and hawed but she wouldn't let him go. It was GREAT!

...and she's gorgeous...did I mention that before??

You just CAN'T get away from the azzholes...

So Mrs. Intern and I just went to see "The Artist"in Bryn Mawr at the wonderful Bryn Mawr film institute, and whilst the ads were on prior to the film, there was an ad for "JOSEPH WATKINS" of MSNBC fame, speaking in the area. He is from around here somewhere...I haven't looked real hard if you get my drift...as long he's not in my social circle, I couldn't care less WHERE he lives.

This sack o' shit RW Rethug suddenly became "Reverend' Watkins with the passing of Whitney Houston and was all over TeeVee saying that he knew her fron the GHW Bush administration when she was at the White House and wa nice to him. Big frigging whoop.

If I ever see him in the street here, I'm gonna tell him that he's a shill for the fascists and should be ashamed of himself. He's a Clarence Thomas wannabe.

P.S. Great great film...

All this talk about the Church and contraception makes me recall the well-worn joke:

Three couples--an elderly couple, a middle-aged couple and a young newlywed couple--wanted to join a Catholic church. The priest says, "We have special requirements for new parishioners. You must abstain from having sex for two weeks."

The couples agreed and came back at the end of two weeks.

The priest goes up to the elderly couple and asks, "Were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?"

The old man replies, "No problem at all, Pastor."

"Congratulations! Welcome to the church!" said the priest.

The priest goes to the middle-aged couple and asks, "Well, were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?"

The man replied, "The first week was not too bad. The second week I had to sleep on the couch for a couple of nights but, yes we made it."

"Congratulations! Welcome to the church," said the priest.

The priest then goes to the newlywed couple and asks, "Well, were you able to abstain from sex for two weeks?"

"Well, Father, we were not able to go without sex for the two weeks," the young man replied.

"What Happened?" inquired the priest.

"My wife was reaching for a light bulb on the top shelf and dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, I couldn't help myself and we had sex right there on the floor."

The priest said, "Well, then you're not welcome in this Catholic church."

"That's OK," said the young man, "We're not welcome at the supermarket anymore either."

I'll tell ya what scares Pat Buchanan in the middle of the night...

He has a recurring dream that Donny Donowitz, the "Bear Jew" of the film "Inglorious Basterds&quot sic) is invisibly banging that baseball bat inside the cave, coming closer, closer...ever closer to the exit, and when he appears, he goes right for Buchanan's head...and that's when the dream ends as he awakens, sweating and disoriented.

He is one of the most despised individuals in media...or now, OUT of media, for now at least. Someone will pick him up, what with all of his "credentials".

The joke that always "bears" repeating: didja hear that Pat Buchanan lost a family member at Auschwitz? Yeah...his uncle fell out of a guard tower.

"...put a Bayer aspirin between their knees..."

We are asymptotically approaching some nadir in the American "discourse". This is not quite the most ridiculous statement utterred in recent years, but we are getting to the point where there is no visible bottom.

This is just outrageous to the nth degree and for Andrea Mitchell Greenspan to not express extreme anger and snotty disgust in the manner which she does when folks like Alan Grayson, Dennis Kucinich, or other "extreme liberals" (sic) make what the RW called incendiary remarks is almost as revoltin' a development as the original comment made by this Zero.

Since I'm from Philly, I know the REAL story about Ms. Mitchell. It is quite something, you know...
