David Frum Wants Your Snuggie (With You In It?)

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Constantly fired conservative David Frum is throwing an ironical party for himself, after his latest firing from the American Enterprise Institute, where his liberal “we should negotiate in good faith with the majority party” views didn’t please prospective donors. He is now very unemployed, having only five or six regular columnist jobs. And what about FrumForum? Don’t group blogs make tons of money? [Washington Independent]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Snarkalicious

    Fuck off, dickhead. There already ain’t enough hobo beans to go around. We’ll be around in five days to collect the frozen death puck from between your ice-blue ass cheeks so we can burn it as fuel.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Aww, how cute. I’d go, but unfortunately AEI is having Carousel that night.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    As it turned out, Bush’s economic policies were the true “Axis of Evil.”

  • Cornhusker Kickback

    Frum’s fun firing fiesta!

  • Terry

    Don’t black out the time and location! We should all crash and drink his liquor and eat the food.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    Ha ha, suuck it, Frum! At least Homer Simpson has a job at the nuclear plant.

  • ttommyunger

    Don’t rush me, I’m still trying to recover from the fact that after all these years, young Mr. Frum actually said some things I agree with. What is going on here? What’s next? Is Sarah Palin going to speak in a normal voice instead of that “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” shriek?

  • GOPCrusher

    Too bad. First, I’ve got basketball to watch. Then I’m taking the kids out to do some dumpster diving behind some choice local restaurants for food for the week.

  • Buzz Feedback

    I have a nice blanket ridden with smallpox that I can donate. Indian style.

  • Suds McKenzie

    [re=546206]Terry[/re]: Its in the William Crystal Room at the Emperor Palpatine Nazi Memorial Aiport Lounge.

  • Bearbloke

    Why hasn’t this LEFTIST TERRORIST MUSLIN been drop-kicked back to his barren-ice floe village in the mountains of Soviet Cunuckistan, where his fascistsocialist ‘needs’ for clothing will be begrudgingly met??

  • Bearbloke
  • Snarkalicious

    [re=546198]Snarkalicious[/re]: [re=546217]GOPCrusher[/re]: My huddled, unwashed mass also has a deflated basketball to stare at. Perhaps we could form a league? Burning death puck sometimes resembles fireworks. And when Crazy Joe screams, it sounds like “RAAAAAHH RAAAAHHHH RAHHHHH! FUCK CHARLIE!!!!!!” So, we can scavenge him an old 2 piece and some shredded plastic bags to be like pom pons…


  • bitchincamaro

    Where exactly are we to send the “gently used condoms”?

  • Bearbloke

    [re=546231]Bearbloke[/re]: Sorry, I meant Willow… haven’t had my morning Whiskey & Weetbix yet…

  • Bearbloke

    [re=546239]bitchincamaro[/re]: into the punchbowl at Frum’s party, or course!

  • bitchincamaro

    [re=546247]Bearbloke[/re]: In that case, let’s all get “busy”.

  • iwillsavethispatient

    Sadly, David Frum is expecting to get his pink slip from FrumForums soon too.

  • Tommmcatt

    Does peeing in something count as gentle use?

    I have a friend who wants me to ask.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    The party will probably suck.
    How many people can fit into a cardboard box anyway?

  • Sleeves

    For the BYO gentlemanly paraphilia, we could wrap a few hobo beans in the grundles-piece of a “white brief (fruit of the masochistic loons)”. Lay this assembly on the granite upgrade, write “Skidz Row -E. Erikson” in red ink over the left hip, and strike downward with a clenched fist (the liberal fasces).

    Deliver in an elegant, mercury gray hatbox.

    [re=546251]bitchincamaro[/re]: It’s a dirty “job,” but somebody has to do it.

  • Hopey dont play that game

    Dear David Frum, Maybe it’s the beer talking but you’ve got a butt that won’t quit. They’ve got these big chewy pretzels here mmmmnsonsnatt FIVE DOLLARS? Get outta here…

  • Marxist Leninist Papist

    Think of it as affirmative action for conservative white intellectual crowd….

  • druranium

    I just watched Mary Matalin caw in contempt at James Carville on John King, USA. There’s 10 minutes that I will never get back. What a shitstorm(the entire show).s

  • Prairie Flower

    OT, but which one of you darlings logged in as “jimmie” on Fox News’ Wasilla Tonite website with this gem?

    “Sarrah Palin is a merican who is grate and swell. She is a woman that deserves to be out fo the kitchen and makes enouff money to hire help to feed her childerens. Like me also.”

  • druranium

    Fox News Wasilla Tonite? Sweet jesus.

    Congrats to the troll, very brave.

  • Red Zeppelin

    In his defense, he really can’t be that much of a conservative by today’s standards. He has a sense of humor, about himself no less, and “gets” The Simpsons. If Mooselini watches it, she probably thinks it’s completely serious, a la Colbert. Plus being from the frozen wasteland of Canuckistan, he has to be at least tolerant of teh socialisms. And, yeah, I had a big crush on his mother back in the day.

  • Red Zeppelin

    [re=546307]druranium[/re]: Jesus, can you imagine their home life?

  • zhubajie

    Isn’t he going to go back to farming, like Cincinattus?

  • zhubajie

    Hey, Frum, there’s good money in white guys whoring for japanese tourists in Thailand or wherever. You’ll earn every penny, of course.

  • mamandesfilles

    I am pleased to see that Mr. Frum has decided that his personal tragedy will not interfere with his ability to do good hair.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=546311]Red Zeppelin[/re]: Hasn’t the Simpsons been around forever – even Granny ‘gets’ it by now!

    [re=546318]Red Zeppelin[/re]: HateSex Tonight!

  • Katydid

    [re=546307]druranium[/re]: I saw them on a show a while ago. Carville just rolled his eyes whenever she cawed, as you put it so perfectly. The entire time he looked like he was thinking, “Oh, dear Jesus, how many more years of this can I take?” I half-expected him to start the seppuku, not to salvage what may be left of his honor, but for the sweet, sweet, release of death.

  • Red Zeppelin

    [re=546367]Bearbloke[/re]: It is a low bar indeed, but it is one that I do not think your average teabagger could clear.

    Well, she was hot in a sort of repressed librarian way.

  • Sleeves

    [re=546318]Red Zeppelin[/re]: I can only guess. You’d think it’d be like two celebrity actors, but any such pair should sweep the house at Whose Line Is Anyway. When with both in the Communications class, possibly a marriage’s occult power is restricted to human and halfling only.

    The safer sound bet: they appear to do promotions of tournament itself—like two confederate card sharpers in a plea bargain. House service. Outreach. Poker conventions.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=546377]Sleeves[/re]: …wtf?!

    Either my English-to-‘Merkin translator has gone tits up or I’ve drank my lunch a bit too fast, but I have not the first bloody idea about what you wrote there… perhaps I should alert the Ministry that I’m not as ready to undertake this particular espionage mission as we’d hoped….

  • Terry

    [re=546223]Suds McKenzie[/re]:

    and the hors d’oeuvres are made entirely of endangered species.

  • LowerdPeninsula

    [re=546390]Bearbloke[/re]: Say’s the man that speaks “Strine”. You guys speak as if someone is striking you with a cattle prod at the end of each of your sentences. That, or you sound liked drunk, oh, excuse me…pissed-silly Londoners.

  • LowerdPeninsula

    [re=546393]Terry[/re]: I hear that Panda is delicious, but that you’re hungry a half-hour after you eat them.

  • Smoke Filled Roommate

    Murfs a lot while chooching.

  • Sleeves

    [re=546390]Bearbloke[/re]: Sorry, just experiencing a moment of private absurdity at the end of some tiring days. (And looking forward to All Fools’ Day for the first time.)

  • blkblt

    [re=546307]druranium[/re]: Mary just seems to be going through the motions lately. Both she and James are starting to look like aliens trying to appear human. But Mary has lost her spark, I think she is just phoning it in to get the paycheck.

    GET A JOB!!!

    Shouldn’t he be selling pencils or (stolen) newspapers on a streetcorner somewhere?

    [re=546311]Red Zeppelin[/re]: If you really have the slightest bit of affection for Barbara Frum, you must have a viceral loathing for this awful little braunshirt.
