    “Because of Hoover’s innovations, an auto mechanic could repair any American car.” Those were the days!

    Who says spanking after age 6 is bad for kids? I was spanked well past the age of 6 and now look at me. I write columns for Hot Air. Oh, wait…

  3. rmontcal

    So someone had rational and detailed thoughts about the pros and cons of the undie-bombers tactics and so they e-mailed Andrew Sullivan about it?

  4. BlueStateLibtard

    Didn’t Joan Rivers throw a pen at some airline employee a few whiles ago? Imagine how mad she’ll be now!

  5. queeraselvis v 2.0

    So wait, I’m confused. Does TNR hate Barry or love him?

    Also, Lindsay’s repeated reaching across the aisle is simply him looking for new boyfriends, ever since WALNUTS dumped him for that moose-fucking trollop, Nanookie of the North.

    Never mind the undie-bomber: the police in Slovakia have a brilliant new system for testing airport security. They plant explosives in an unsuspecting passenger’s luggage, then wait to see if airport security detects it.

    And if the airport security fails . . . well, they ring up the country where the plane was going to a few days later, and say, “Um . . . shit, there’s some explosives in a suitcase in your country, sorry about that.”

    Genius plan.

    Why do I follow Riley’s links to the wignut sights? Still, it’s nice to see them actually admitting how reprehensible they are. First, the wignuts came out in favor of fucking torture; now we see them supporting child abuse. What’s next, coming out in favor of rape – oh wait, must of the Republican Senators already did so.

  8. WIDTAP

    I want to speak up for the poor agent who bump Joan Rivers on her flight. Just what was he supposed to think when he heard buzzing coming from her undies?

  9. pampl

    [re=489311]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: I think that author, John Judis, dislikes him for being too conservative

  10. JMP

    [re=489311]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: See, even the liberal New Republic criticizes Obama!

    The New Republic is a lot like the Washington Post, as both have gone conservative in the past two decades but once had a liberal reputation that other conservatives pretend still exists.

  11. freakishlystrong

    So, wait. The Gee Oh Pee thinks fuckin’ Lindz is a lefty-loosey libtard? Embiggen that tent, assholes!

  12. x111e7thst

    [re=489314]JMP[/re]: Amusing to watch the conservatards try to work out their psycho-sexual confusions in the comments. But that’s pretty typical of Hot Air.

  13. ManchuCandidate

    The Lindsey and Beating Your Kids Well posts seem to highlight that the GOP’s idea of relationships and child rearing are pretty much the same thing.

    DO AS I SAY OR FIVE ACROSS THE EYES!!!

    Except they’re little in mind but fat in body boys in fat boy track pants with arrested development issues.

    Of course this probably explains why GOPers loves their kinky sex and hanker for being “bad.”

  14. liquiddaddy

    I think Lindsey likes being censured. Next time they caucus they’re gonna make him watch waring Zach Wamp’s gimp suit.

  15. Lascauxcaveman

    This libtard caveman finds that his anecdotal parent evident jibes pretty well with what the Hot Air guy says. I had to smack both my kids a few times – but only a few times – when they were between ages 3 and 6 and they turned out to be angels, more or less.

    We always followed a smacking with a discussion of why the smacking occurred and how to avoid smackings in the future. This would take place several hours or a day after the smacking, after the kid (and parent) had a chance to calm down.

  16. Mr Blifil

    I try to beat a six-year old daily. It makes them all the more grateful for making it to seven.

  17. Katydid

    I never wanted to smack my kid until she was about 15, and by then she was 4″ taller than me, probably a whole lot stronger, and faster. So I just ran her over with my car.

  18. bitchincamaro

    [re=489309]BlueStateLibtard[/re]: Had Joan volunteered to remove her lip implants for inspection this whole mess could have been avoided.

  19. Katydid

    [re=489392]Fred Wertham Jr.[/re]: That’s what the cops said when the kid called them from the ER.

  20. bitchincamaro

    [re=489311]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: It’s hard to argue with Judis’ POV, but he could have saved his ink and asked TNR to simply reprint a column or two of Krugman’s. Judis’ only misstep was in characterizing Summers’ and Geithner’s failure as one of underestimating the severity of the meltdown, and excluding their co-authorship of said clusterfuck. But with TNR, the default emotion is always HATE.

    [re=489291]V572625694[/re]: “Because of Hoover’s innovations, an auto mechanic could repair any American car.” Those were the days!

    Only because the government told private industry what to do. Or am I the only one that noticed the irony in that statement?

    wtf? The Mail says “a study shows that” kid-smacking is a good thing, but I see nothing about who made the study or where it was published. I spit on that. And while I did smack my kids a few times, both before and after age six, I am not one bit proud of it, and don’t for one instant believe it was good parenting. It was FAIL parenting.
