HILLARY CLINTON  1:06 pm June 2, 2008

World’s Greatest Blog Comment

by Ken Layne

Get a Brain, Moran!We were just enjoying this Politico story about how Matt Drudge hearts Barack Obama and this is Reason #2,098,388 why John McCain won’t be president. And then, just as we clicked for the next page, we had a brief glance at the world’s most insane, perfect blog comment in America’s long stupid history of blog comments. Really. Come see.

A young man gets shot down in enemy territory. He is taken prisoner of war for 5 long years. Some years later, a young man in the south side of Chicago smokes crack with his friend down a run down alley. His name is B. Hussein Obama. McCain served his country. He fought for to keep American free. What did Obama do with this freedom, he chose to smoke crack. My president will not be a crack addict.

Yes! “CharlesSD” for the win! This comment, of course, was the first of (so far) 333 comments about the famous news-link page Drudge Report not loving the Republicans enough.

It was posted at 4:50 a.m. this morning, exactly 10 minutes after the story appeared online. That is an uncharacteristically long gap between posting and commenting — it’s almost possible to skim over the four-page feature in 10 minutes — but this was also during what most people consider the “middle of the night.”

“CharlesSD” continues his obviously cut-and-pasted irrelevant comment with the following:

The real heat isn’t coming from the right, it’s coming from all those 17 million Hillary voters who are united against an Obama presidency. By and large, we are voting for McCain so deal with it. I speak for millions of her voters and we are going to take Hussein Obama down.


This, of course, was “updated” by the commenter exactly one hour and eight minutes later. Jesus fucking christ.

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


jagorev June 2, 2008 at 1:09 pm

I think the comment posted six minutes after that was even better. I want “WE ARE FIGHT TERRORISM NOW, AND AMERICA HATERS!!!” on a bumper sticker.

And some years later, in another urine smelling garbage strewn alley, a fellow named CharlesSD just gave his first blow job to an elderly man. CharlesSD (SD is for Suck Dick) does this because he believes in the capitalist system and that paying old men 20 bucks for a blow job is one of the fastest and easiest ways to show the value of the “trickle” down economy unlike that Barry HUSSIEN Obama who has not paid to blow people.

tunamelt June 2, 2008 at 1:14 pm

“He fought for to keep American free.”

People in my hometown talk like this. My stepmom totally talks like this! “I’m going to the store for to get milk.”

In B. Hussein’s defense, a run down alley does provide the ideal ambiance for a crack binge.

freakishlystrong June 2, 2008 at 1:18 pm

Only a fucking crack addict posts at 4:50 am, everyone knows that-decent folk are passed out from copius amounts of alcohol, fer God’s sake…

problemwithcaring June 2, 2008 at 1:19 pm

As far as the inevitable wallops of pretension of dished out by Pro-Hillary nutjobs commenters on the internet, CharlseSD’s “I speak for millions” piece, I think, is pretty restrained.

Being from a place that hasn’t voted in a primary yet means he is well within his rights to claim God hates Obama too.

BigLar June 2, 2008 at 1:20 pm

I have to say that as a life-long St. Louis Cardinals fan, that picture kills me everytime it goes up. Other than that…hello to all my ass-fucking, gin-drinking, lunesta-taking, pajama-wearing friends who miss the old Wonkette too.

So many things wrong with that sentence.

Doglessliberal June 2, 2008 at 1:26 pm

“What did Obama do with this freedom, he chose to smoke crack. My president will not be a crack addict.”

This really is just perfect. I wonder if CharlesSD voted for Bush. If so, we know that his bias is against the rock, not the powder, as his president could be a powder addict. And how does he feel about alcohol, as we have an admitted alcoholic running things now?

Dramatist June 2, 2008 at 1:26 pm

It’s impossible to use that picture too often: the do-rag, the shades, the Cardinals t-shirt. Exquisite.

And in further hoped-for refinements to this site, can we please regain the capability to put two dashes together, thus making an m-dash?

weirdiowasculpture June 2, 2008 at 1:29 pm

If you’re really into ass-fucking, does that make you a crack addict?

Son of Mark Penn June 2, 2008 at 1:30 pm

I guess this means Barrack Obama did crack in Chicago while he was living in Hawaii a decade before crack existed.

StrangelyBrown June 2, 2008 at 1:43 pm

@Serolf Divad: How about:

FACT: George W. Bush never smoked crack (as far as he remembers)
FACT: Bush dragged us into a bullshit 100-year war in Iraq

ERGO: we should only elect crackheads from now on.

RaptorAvatar June 2, 2008 at 1:55 pm

Can we please have a conspiracy theory about McCain not REALLY being in prison for 5 years? Can he just have been hiding in the hanger where they faked the moon landings, sipping Mai Tais with Jane Fonda, and fingerpainting his signiature on declarations condeming the US? It only seems fair since they get to make up stuff about hopey sucking dick and smoking crack…

We need to partition this country, tilt it southeast and let all the retards roll to their new homeland (bonus points if we can roll them all into Florida).

Do they even make crack anymore? I mean, it’s like so 80s . . .

Rev. Peter Lemonjello June 2, 2008 at 2:04 pm

This is exactly why Ronald Reagan invented crack. Joan Quigley predicted Barack’s nomination, told Nancy, and here we are.

shortsshortsshorts June 2, 2008 at 2:04 pm

If the President would stay on meth all the time, forever, we would always be assured that the phone WILL BE answered at 3 a.m.

TGY June 2, 2008 at 2:04 pm

Hm. George Bush might’ve flown planes without crashing them, but he didn’t kill anybody. He patiently waited to be president for that. WALNUTS! has already proved his powers of destruction rival W’s. He just needs more power to bring them into fruition.

junkscience June 2, 2008 at 2:04 pm

You have only to briefly peruse the commentary abutting most Googleable news articles to see that this level of idiocy is fairly commonplace. That said, +3 for calling BHO a crackhead.

Tra June 2, 2008 at 2:05 pm

My president will not be a crack addict. My president will require an entire pharmacy’s worth of drugs just to keep the blood flowing through his ancient, ancient veins.

That’s Odd. I think the quotes automatically surround user ids with a space in them. If that screws up the reply function I may have to change my usid.

masterdebater June 2, 2008 at 2:06 pm

You might ask yourselves why YOU aren’t up before 5:00 am trying to save America, by getting this race down to Hillary Clinton vs John McCain. I mean you would ask yourself that, I suppose, if you were a republican, and weren’t wasting your time on the little stuff…like a job.

Fact: George W. Bush does cocain, becomes President.

Now some Euro-schmuck (the only people awake, online and riding the comment boards at 4:30 EDT) sends out a “GO HILLARY” comment.

Do they love or Barry, or is it just that Italians can’t stand anyone with darker skin than their version of Mediterranean melanin.

articulate mora June 2, 2008 at 2:52 pm

He wants Clinton because she answers phone calls at 3am, and that is when this guy likes to post comments and make phone calls.

I find it humorous that in this guy’s story B. Hussein Obama is smoking crack with a friend. It just makes the whole scene more conspiratorial and vibrant. CharlesSD- one of the great fiction writers of our time.

obfuscato June 2, 2008 at 2:56 pm


Yeah, I suppose pointing out the Cardinals t-shirt was just partisan baseball fandom on my part.

Everything else is unacceptable by any fair standards of civilized society, though.

Maybe I need to preface it; although “NO U” is the quintessential forum post for all things passionate and illiterate, apparently it is too concise to ward off the censors. All online discussions evolve into either “Hitler” or “NO U” or “although I had some reservations, I can concede that point, perhaps you are right” – the last one being theoretical.

Well, given that the current “President” [awarded, not earned] cannot even remember whether he ever did cocaine, I suspect you already have one, CSD. After all, what are you “on” now when you can’t remember the things you were “on” before? I don’t know which is more unbelievable: Bush’s memory hole or this CSD toad’s indignant hyperbole.
