    ISRAEL MUST DESIST!

    I for one am utterly sickened by the outrageous display of violence carried out by the evil Israeli forces against the innocent, peace-loving people of Palestine. For too long the aggressors, propped up by sinister foreign forces, have been allowed to attack poor civilians, unchecked by any vestige of moral conscience.

    As usual, the sick and twisted armchair supporters of Israel turn a blind eye to their wrong-doing and try to blame Palestine instead. They conveniently ignore the fact that Palestinians are perfectly entitled to defend themselves against the constant onslaught by Israel, who will not be happy until every last Palestinian is dead.

    It sounds like New Orleans needs to ‘toughen up’. How dare they only shoot guns when they can use rockets in the middle east?

    NRA/GOP – get on this. Our lack of rockets in cities is the most important issue facing America today.

    From what I’ve been told, that’s the He Spot so actually Canada City is boosting your stimulus package.

    I haven’t had the heart to read Kristol or Krauthammer this morning, but I bet they’ve toned down that “failed presidency” stuff.

    [re=252104]wheelie[/re]: You got it wrong, that’s a CANADIAN finger in that guy’s ass, not an Israeli one. You’re welcome.

    Also.

    Thank you for the graphic of all eight of former President Jr.’s State of the Union addresses.

    If she keeps going at this rate, Mrs. Obama may do to dresses with sleeves what President John F. Kennedy did to men’s hats.

    Everyone knows sleeveless dresses are a secret communist dress code.

    /sorry, just had a KLo moment

    I suppose the graphic is a good explanation for why we don’t hear much about Republicans getting prostate cancer.

    Winning comment from the NYT thread:

    It’s enshrined in the second amendment that Michelle Obama has the right to bare arms.

    Fucking Spammer. Besides, most of the sugar daddies these days pay in Hobo Beans and Rice.

  12. CivicHoliday

    that graphic illustrates the final stage of interview for Republican pages. free prostate exam, baby! that’s…um…awesome, right? wait, why is the Congressman getting out latex gloves???

  13. Cape Clod

    [re=252115]WadISay[/re]: Kristol is whining that Hopey paid lip service to President Bam-Bams wars and didn’t even mention the imminent, deadly threat posed by the Persian devil hell people.

  14. IceCreamEmpress

    That headline says “Prosate” instead of “Prostate”. Stupid Canadians.

    Also, I’m confused about that article because THE WHOLE POINT OF PROSCAR IS TO KEEP YOU FROM GETTING PROSTATE CANCER (yeah, my 81-year-old dad takes it, so there). So what’s the point of that article? “MEDICATION WORKS AS PLANNED. HERE’S AN ILLUSTRATION OF SOMEONE POKING A FINGER INTO SOMEONE’S ASS.”

    I know that this is far from the focus of the NYT article, but the man sitting between Michelle Obama and Jill Biden is Officer Richard DeCoatsworth of the Philadelphia Police Department, who was *shot in the face* while on duty at age 21 and still managed to radio for help and chase the perp for many blocks. Then on his first day back to work after recovering, he caught a murderer. The Bidens invited him to the speech last night.

    Something is not right around here today.
    I just can’t quite put my finger on what it is….
    Hmmm.
    I’ll finger it out.
    Sooner or later I’ll get to the bottom of this, and when I do….
    Oh, SHIT!

    I downloaded that Canadian illustration and when the computer asked for a title, I typed in “How Republicans Reproduce.” Am I the next Oscar Wilde or what?

    I didn’t have time to read the article, so how does having a finger up my ass help me not get cancer?
