  1. Barack Obama’s new budget proposal takes the legacy of Ronald Reagan, poops on it, and sets it on fire with a propane torch subsidized by the top 2 percent of earners

    Come’on SKS. You make this sound like a bad thing. I’d prefer taking torches and pitchforks to many of them (especially the finanze types), but this works for me.

  2. US America has bad luck with the number 8.

    8th state in the Union, South Carolina
    8th prez, Martin Van Buren
    8 battleships at Pearl Harbor
    8 years of heavy combat in ‘Nam
    8 Years of W.
    8 welfare bums from krazee Octo-pussy or Octo-mom
    Now we have an intelligent Octopus fucking with your plumbing.

  3. [re=254374]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Amazing. And the Chinese consider 8 a lucky number, indicating prosperity and wealth. It’s a zero-sum game people!!

  4. “Barack Obama’s new budget proposal takes the legacy of Ronald Reagan, poops on it, and sets it on fire with a propane torch subsidized by the top 2 percent of earners.”

    This will undoubtably enrage the most fervent supporters of the top 2%: the wide swath of fat, white, under-educated, lower middle class, Fox Television viewers with completely unrealistic expectations of their future income potential.

  5. Little wonder why the GOOP is so livid about Obama’s budget proposal. Prosperous lower classes = significant Repuke voter losses. Plus, they can’t effectively sell the “We’ll keep you safe from the towel-heads” plank anymore.

  6. [re=254427]McDuff[/re]: But isn’t goop also the new lifestyle site for Gwenyth “I-want-to-be-Madonna-when-I-grow-up” Paltrow which is (somehow) threatening the NYT?

    goop.com

  7. [re=254379]TGY[/re]: Ha! Win. My favorite kind of funny.

    Also. I welcome our new cephalopod overlords. With open arms. Please don’t beak me, kind and beneficent cephalopod rulers.

  8. [re=254365]Bruno[/re]: “Snark is cultural vandalism”…Roger Ebert

    Once again someone sticks their neck out to crack on snark with no idea of what snark really is. Ebert seems to think it’s a device to punish human spontaneity, eccentricity, non-conformity and simple error.

    Jesus H. Christ on a popsicle stick. Oh well, at least, unlike Denby, he at least has a sort of working definition, however egregiously flawed. Please post something on Ebert’s column, Wonkette Overlords, so we can show him the true spirit of snark. The really mean kind.

  9. Pooping on Reagan’s legacy is the least of it. Wait’ll the Republicans find the clause, buried deep within some abstruse accounting formulas, renaming National Airport after John Hinckley.

  10. Once again someone sticks their neck out to crack on snark with no idea of what snark really is

    Once again a rich old white straight man who’s made money in Old Media and now doesn’t know what’s next decides to blame everything on snark.

    Ebert, at least, has more intellectual honesty than Denby–if Ebert was as much of an ass as the American Sucker, he probably would have said that snark gave him cancer.

  11. Barack Obama’s new budget proposal takes the legacy of Ronald Reagan, poops on it, and sets it on fire with a propane torch subsidized by the top 2 percent of earners.

    And God bless it for it.

  12. “Congratulations, America! You’re about to become a 36 percent stakeholder in yet another useless bank. ”

    Do I at least get a free pen or something?
