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

by Jim Newell

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]

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 March 31, 2010 at 5:40 pm

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

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

Cornhusker Kickback March 31, 2010 at 5:43 pm

Frum’s fun firing fiesta!

Terry March 31, 2010 at 5:44 pm

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

Texan Bulldoggette March 31, 2010 at 5:46 pm

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

ttommyunger March 31, 2010 at 5:48 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 5:50 pm

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.

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

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??

[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…

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

Bearbloke March 31, 2010 at 6:15 pm

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

bitchincamaro March 31, 2010 at 6:20 pm

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

iwillsavethispatient March 31, 2010 at 6:49 pm

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

Tommmcatt March 31, 2010 at 6:53 pm

Does peeing in something count as gentle use?

I have a friend who wants me to ask.

Monsieur Grumpe March 31, 2010 at 6:56 pm

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

Sleeves March 31, 2010 at 6:56 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 7:15 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 7:59 pm

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

druranium March 31, 2010 at 8:00 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 8:02 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 8:10 pm

Fox News Wasilla Tonite? Sweet jesus.

Congrats to the troll, very brave.

Red Zeppelin March 31, 2010 at 8:12 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 8:23 pm

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

zhubajie March 31, 2010 at 8:31 pm

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

zhubajie March 31, 2010 at 8:48 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 8:52 pm

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 March 31, 2010 at 9:29 pm

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

[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 March 31, 2010 at 9:41 pm

[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 March 31, 2010 at 9:47 pm

[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.

[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….

[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.
