    And yet the ‘tards are bitching about being made fun of.

  • Bronkers

    Been waiting for Riley’s contrib on this sloooow August dog-day. I wished, and it appeared.

    I better aim higher with my mentalism, next time.

  • The Station Manager

    Oh why oh why do I always forget that clicking on RedState links hurts my brain with so much stupid?

  • SmutBoffin

    Man, that F-22 RedState person, “Skankerbags” or whatever, need to learn the difference between “fact” and “opinion”.

  • The Cold Sea

    If you want another text book example of good government, the plane that went down in the Hudson after the birdstrike. Everyone survived because the government does do many things right.

  • imissopus

    The RedState article notes that it has been a half-century since any American has been wounded by hostile aircraft and calls this “a truly-astonishing…unparalleled military achievement.”

    No you douchetards, it’s because we have not taken on a country that HAD an Air Force in half a century, unless you want to count the thirty-year-old surplus MIGs the Iraqis threw at our pilots in the first Gulf War. It has nothing to do with American exceptionalism. If we’d taken on the Soviets/Russians or the Chinese plenty of our guys would now be appearing in propaganda films all over the youtubes.

    And just look at this example, of a man saying that our children have been “enslaved” by a $115 trillion debt

    Because who knows more about being enslaved than a white guy who doesn’t understand the debt and/or can’t count? I’m just surprised I haven’t heard one of these fools compare him/herself to Rosa Parks yet.

    [re=382425]SmutBoffin[/re]: …need to learn the difference between “fact” and “opinion”.
    there is a certain amount of nuance that seems really lost on these folks …
    otoh, they are probably concerned about the terrorist socialist death panels tracking them down, so may not be on their game today.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    [re=382425]SmutBoffin[/re]: At least his screen name wasn’t some variation of DONTTREADONME like 90% of the other posters there. Christ, these people have no fucking imagination.

  • hobospacejunkie

    [re=382431]imissopus[/re]: The United States also has not been invaded in like forever, also. Truly astonishing military achievement, that one, considering the fierce Mexican & Canadian enemies trolling our borders night & day.

  • ScubaDew

    [re=382431]imissopus[/re]: It reminds me of the old elephant repellant joke.

    “Do you see any American planes falling out of the sky right now?”
    “Um… no?”
    “Well that’s because it’s WORKING, you commie libtard!”

  • SmutBoffin

    [re=382436]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Yeah, the usernamespace overlap with the Paultard forums must be around 60%. This goes up to 90% if you find/replace every instance of “Paul” with “Palin”.

  • mdotsota

    [re=382432]SayItWithWookies[/re]: We’ll see at least one MLK/Rosa Parks comparison by a teabagger and/or Sean Hannity by the end of the year. Not Malcolm X, though, it’s taken them THIS long to accept that MLK was worth not having rocks thrown at him.

  • qwerty42

    [re=382436]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Christ, these people have no fucking imagination.
    I don’t know …. they do have their Strike Force or whatever. Since Wonkette is a WARBLOG, shouldn’t we have a strike force of our own …. complete with cool logo and maybe a decoder ring so we can decrypt the secret messages sent from …. well, wherever secret messages are sent from.

    O RLY?!?!?!

  • Simba B

    Yglesias is sort of superficially tolerable most of the time, but good god his commenters are a bunch of wankers.

    “If we don’t have the F-22, how are we going to fight China, on the Moon?”

    I think I’ve already answered that.

  • TGY

    [re=382431]imissopus[/re]: They’re not counting commie, librul attack-suicide birds.

  • ScubaDew

    [re=382450]mdotsota[/re]: They already had a post saying conservatives shouldn’t turn their backs on Limbaugh, because that’s what Peter did to Jesus. IMHO that’s much more crazy than any MLK or Rosa Parks comparisons they could ever cook up. On the other hand, this is RedState we’re talking about, so they could always surprise me.

  • lee hussein oswald

    [re=382428]The Cold Sea[/re]: The converse of which is that both the helicopter and small plane that collided over the Hudson were below the 1100′ altitude purview of the FAA. Low-flying tourist aircraft industry: Libertarian Paradise!

  • chascates

    “Cliché about “alpha males” and so forth are so deeply ingrained in our culture that I had no idea what they specifically referred to.”

    That is a pretty obscure phrase. If you’ve had your head up your ass your entire life.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    Oh, and Riley, to address your question regarding fighting the Chinese on the moon: with their own creation. I have been selectively breeding an army of mutant Pekingese for the past 7 years. They will never see this one coming.

    The Pekes look SO CUTE in their little space fighter suits!

  • Joshua Norton

    conservatives shouldn’t turn their backs on Limbaugh, because that’s what Peter did to Jesus.

    But Peter went on to found the whole RC kit and caboodle that was the basis of Christianity. Worked out pretty well for his reputation. Do they really want to go there?

    Bless their ignorant little hearts.

  • Sick Puppy

    [re=382506]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: I have a toy Pomeranian who would like to join your mutant army. He is balding on his haunches but is still adorable! Woof! er, I mean, also! Too!

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    [re=382527]Sick Puppy[/re]: NOTHING better than taking down one’s enemies through space warfare and tiny, yapping dogs. Your avatar = priceless.

  • zenferret

    [re=382444]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Last invasion was thwarted and repelled by those noble Alaskans when the Japanese invaded the Aleutians.

    Okay the only the part after when is true.

    How It Could Have Gone At The Senate Hearings:

    Senator: We can’t afford the F-22
    Lockkeed Exec: But senator…it’s fast.
    Senator: We already have fast.
    Lockheed exec: And it’s stealthy.
    Senator: We already have stealthy.
    Lockheed exec: Did I mention that it’s maneuverable?
    Senator: We already have maneuverable.
    Lockheed Exec: But senator…it KICKS ASS!
    Senator: Well…why didn’t you say so in the first place? Page! Get the federal checkbook!

    Someone needs to photoshop an AK-47 into Elvis’s hands in the photo in that Hit and Run piece.
