Beige Ford Taurus Shouting Things At Washington Post Editorial Board

by Jack Stuef

If the Washington Post will listen to anything, it’s definitely a Ford Taurus, so this is worth a shot, sir. We commend you. STOP HIDING IN YOUR OFFICE, KRAUTHAMMER. YOU HAVE TO CONFRONT THE FORD TAURUS AT SOME POINT. [DCist]

Could some please subtitle this? Trying to listen to what he is saying and most of the time he sounds like an adult in a Peanuts cartoon. Whawhawhaaaaaaawhaaaaa.

It’s Charlie the Rangler isn’t it Jack?

You’d never catch a white car acting so uppity.

What’s black and right and bread all over?

Wingnuts are everywhere. Pop their tires!

Jukesgrrl July 27, 2010 at 8:15 pm

Krauthammer vs. a Taurus? Krauthammer’s head is made of material much harder than a Taurus.

[re=627010]Jukesgrrl[/re]: True that, his head made it through the diving accident just fine, the spinal column, not so much. That and his head is usually up his ass, so there are additional layers of protection.

dijetlo July 27, 2010 at 8:34 pm

This must be an older Ford Taurus, probably assembled by union workers and thus it mistakenly believes that it has a right to express it’s opinion.
You wouldn’t catch a Japanese car mouthing off like this, automotive engineering in Japan knows its place.

I_P July 27, 2010 at 8:34 pm

Translation plz. That sounded like Charlie Brown’s teacher.

Monsieur Grumpe July 27, 2010 at 8:41 pm

It’s the attack of the fast food ordering monolith thingees! The horror, the horror!

I’m pretty sure that’s just the ghost of Lux Interior doing “She Said” a cappella.

DC is known for a tragic history of wheels on wheels violence.

Jesus Christ, buddy. They’re not going to hire you just because you scream incoherently. You also need a blog.

Dave Weigel may not last long with this type of stuff.

Jim89048 July 27, 2010 at 9:55 pm

I am SO proud today to own a Ford! Ford didn’t shake down the gummint for any of that sissy bailout money, you know.

Mr Blifil July 27, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Sounds like he’s well on his way to a shooting spree. Only instead of busting into the Wapo editorial board room, he’ll probably just take out 3 or 4 Home Depot check out lines and call it a life.

dedalus July 27, 2010 at 10:02 pm

Want some fries with that?

[re=627049]Aflac Shrugged[/re]: Kudos!

slowhansolo July 27, 2010 at 10:08 pm

Us Ford owners haven’t heard much grief lately from the Calvin’s-bowtie-pissing-on-the-Oval folks, yet another upside to the bailouts.

Once upon a time, when a car had a bone to pick with you, it didn’t just sit at the curb yammering.

For certain, it can’t be a former Bush administration speechwriter; they’re all inside the building.

[re=626996]hi ox[/re]: If this thread were a street, that comment would be Joe Biden’s motorcade.

[re=627049]Aflac Shrugged[/re]: It’s sad, isn’t? KITT truly has fallen on hard times.

However, I seem to remember Michael Knight having some troubles not too long ago, and he managed to recover beautifully. I wouldn’t be surprised if, by this time next year, that beige Taurus had replaced Piers Morgan as the third judge on “America’s Got Talent”.

the problem child July 27, 2010 at 10:38 pm

Why does America’s Ford Taurus have a speech impediment? Do you not have enough speech therapists to make your autos sound unretarded?

iburl July 27, 2010 at 10:38 pm

“Washington Post”…what is that? Is it like HuffPo for Teabaggers?
Maybe the car has a point.

DoktorZoom July 27, 2010 at 10:38 pm

Here in my car, I can rage at you all
I can lock all my doors, and scream an editorial reply,

DustBowlBlues July 27, 2010 at 11:31 pm

Who gives a shit about DC? It’s election night here in the Dust Bowl, home of the rockin’ watch party. Dickwad Langford,candidate for something in the Republic primary, explained his crazy election night: Load the family in the minivan, pray, (this guy must be a crap driver) then drove to the Baptist church for a kick-ass watch party. It’s cool to drink the grape juice because, you know, it’s actually grape juice.

Separation of church and state? We no need no stinkin’ Bill of Rights.

TJBeck July 27, 2010 at 11:38 pm

That’s some aspect ratio.

OhCrapIHaveACrushOnSarahPalin July 28, 2010 at 12:00 am

This is the sort of thing that makes me want to live in DC.

Hey good lookin’! I’ll be back to pick ya up later!

SayItWithWookies July 28, 2010 at 12:04 am

That is such an awesome new form of communication — I mean it just cuts through the electronic self-absorption that characterizes the urban citizen today, and affects everybody within a range of sound, whether they’ve chosen to participate or not. That’s fucking outrageous. I see a whole new form of getting one’s issues out there — just parking your car on a streetcorner and yelling with the PA head turned up to eleven. It’s like bluetooth that even transcends electronics. Someone should’ve thought of this ages ago.

I think that the WaPo comment section was down today, so somebody just needed to express himself.

Alex Jones had better wake up or at least upgrade to an Explorer; there’s a new vehicular amplification preacher in town.

People are so silly. This is just Obama’s imam ululating the call to prayer.

Geogre July 28, 2010 at 7:10 am

[re=627103]SayItWithWookies[/re]: The last scene in “Slacker” had a guy with a loudspeaker driving through the affluent suburbs doing a rant about “giving away all these fucken guns and knives and shit and get it on. Fix all these problems, yeah.”

I, too, was thinking that this was one of the losers in “America’s Next Great Columnist” contest.

Given that they’ve provided spots to Bill Donohue of the Catholic League of umbrage, this person is more comprehensible.

Scaggsvillain July 28, 2010 at 7:18 am

Definitely sounds like Rev Al Sharpton, judging from tone and cadence.

I think it is truly a wonderful thing that Obama has ushered in a Post-racial America. With our race problems all but solved, hustlers like Sharpton have been reduced to babbling incoherently near major newspapers from the safety of his stylish brown Taurus.

Get a job, Al!

From his airbags to God’s gasbags.

Geogre July 28, 2010 at 8:31 am

[re=627068]user-of-owls[/re]: Ollie North had a plan, you know.

He probably didn’t favor the Ford Falcon… more of a Chevy Tahoe guy, I’d figure — looks like a log cabin on top of a wagon, gets 10 mpg, big tax break, many nooks and crannies for smuggling — for taking care, and, of course, Darth Cheney violated posse commitatis by sending combat troops to the U.S. and had a plan for “in case of significant dissent.”

Obama’s “don’t rock the boat” is letting people forget.

Sgt. Biyatch July 28, 2010 at 8:33 am

This is just another ploy by Katharine Weymouth. Declining subscriber base, loss of ad revenue, and an increase in customer complaints have continued unabated, so she’s trying the last trick in her arsenal: an angry, yelling black man.

DickTaterPeeNoShay July 28, 2010 at 8:36 am

Hmmm. So that’s where Charlie Brown’s teacher went. I always wondered.

This just might replace the internet tubes!

crapshooter102 July 28, 2010 at 9:22 am

That Mulally, he’ll do anything to sell a Ford in DC. God knows the Obama Admins would never have one. Give it up Taurus, Ben and Salley would never have one unless it comes with a Driver with a White House Pass, and also dressed like a Jockey.

Mahousu July 28, 2010 at 10:01 am

[re=627176]crapshooter102[/re]: Little do you know:

In fact, my understanding is that it’s Vilsack in the Taurus.

AWS5200 July 28, 2010 at 10:48 am

Oh good God. This guy was screeching outside my office (across from the WaPo) for what felt like hours yesterday. We couldn’t make out a damned word he said, either.
