George Bush Is Not Muslin, Therefore, ‘Vindicated’

Add to Flipboard Magazine.
  • RedState is spanking itself gleefully with a cinnamon-scented paddle because George Bush has been vindicated, and also everyone wants to know what he thinks about the atrocious Ground Zero Mosque. [RedState]
  • Oh look: George Bush has commented on the 9/11 Mosque. His take: “Cordoba whaa?” And then he choked on a pretzel stick. Kaboom, vindicated! [The Daily Dish]
  • Meanwhile, more hilariously absurd arguments are being barfed up as to why Park 51 must be stopped. This particular gem was penned by “NR Intern.” (NRO interns don’t even get their own bylines! Weak sauce, K-Lo.) Did you know that Park 51 is going to have a swimming pool? Never forget. [The Corner]
  • Famous lamestream media pundit Fareed Zakaria is leaving Newsweek! Now he will write a Brangelina gossip column for Time. [Daily Intel]
  • A GOP person from Iowa is fairly certain that the Bible teaches us that AIDS happens when gay people make out with vampires. [Think Progress]

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

    So there! Just because Dubya showed his ass five times a day does not make him a Muslim. It does make him an idiot, but we knew that, right?

  • SmutBoffin

    NR Intern “Katrina Trinko”??? This person surely exists, and is not just a pseudonym for “drunk John Derbyshire”.

  • FMA

    I don’t recall giving a fuck what Dubya thought about anything. Maybe I was drunk at the time…

  • JMP

    According to the Corner intern, the existing mosque near ground zero is OK because it’s in a small, cramped building without any obvious signs. So basically, he/she agrees Muslims do have the freedom to worship as long as they know their inferior place. But this isn’t bigoted, no.

  • Serolf Divad

    Oh look: George Bush has commented on the 9/11 Mosque. His take: “Cordoba whaa?”

    Nice try, Riley, but Bush was never so elocuent in his diction, so this is obviously fake.

  • BlueStateLiberal

    I hope that when those Muslims construct that mosque they put up on an outside wall a huge 50-foot mural of that photo of Bush holding hands with the king of Saudi Arabia as they stroll among the Texas bluebells. That’s my dream.

  • SayItWithWookies

    This just further emphasizes that the debate isn’t about whether there should be Lower Manhattan mosques or not; it’s about whether it’s appropriate to have a huge, neighborhood-dominating mosque or not.

    Oh, of course — so American Muslims are like children in that they should be seen and not heard. But also not seen.

  • imissopus

    Also did you know that the landing gear from one of the 9/11 planes flew two blocks and landed on the roof of one of the buildings that’s being torn down to build the (Not A) Mosque? Thus this building is hallowed ground and should not be touched. Seriously, Pam Geller said that yesterday.

    Also, Corner intern: have you ever been to NYC? A fifteen-story building will not “dominate” that neighborhood. In New York a building that high is on the smallish side. Idiot.

  • mumblyjoe

    [re=642113]BlueStateLiberal[/re]: Or better yet, put up a video clip on continuous loop, on a Jumbotron like they have in Times Square. After all, given how the idiot fatass tourists choke up Times Square 24/7, one can only conclude that they really love their Jumbotrons, no matter how shitty and tacky they are.

  • GOPCrusher

    Where is this “surge of Strange New Respect” for George W. Bushyt? Unless, they consider the fact that people do not call for him to be tried as a war criminal on a daily basis, respect.

  • The Silver Fox

    That NR intern is onto something. Muslims should just be able to worship in dank, little basements. Nice looking houses of worship are only for Christians! Huzzah!

  • Sleeves

    [re=642098]SmutBoffin[/re]: He wasn’t ever officer class. He had to work his way up through the ranks and Lord that burns you up, doesn’t it? Then he died of complications from diabetes, a rather bourgeois, not to say proletarian, disease, and you, your mum, and your sister Katrina moved west. (Carina! Carina, for God’s sake! What kind of name is that? All very well to say the Duke of Norfolk has a daughter called Carina. There’s a world of difference between saying, “Have you met the Lady Carina Fitzalan-Howard?” and “This is Katrina Trinko.”) -Stephen Fry

    I love that the wingnuts are pretending to not realize what Georgie’s “No Comment” means. Consider that Bush is Republican, and the ones demanding that the muslins GIVE OUR CUNTRY BACK are Republicans. Consider that Park 51 is, at this point, Official Republican Wedge Issue #2 for the 2010 election season (right behind the other brown people sneaking up on us from the south). Why in the fuck, if Bush thought that there was any good reason not to let the Cordoba House folks build wherever the goddamned fuck the zoning board lets them, wouldn’t he say so?

    “No comment” is just Bush’s attempt to dodge admitting that the Republicans have lost their collective shit. That’s right, Erick, even the retard that you so desperately want to VINDICATE!!! thinks you and your ilk are out of your goddamned minds.

    [re=642164]Zadig[/re]: ““No comment” is just Bush’s attempt to dodge admitting that the Republicans have lost their collective shit.”

    I’d say it’s more to appease his Saudi friends.

  • GOPCrusher

    So now, the issue isn’t the building of the mosque, but the fact that people will recognize it as a building of worship?

  • GOPCrusher

    [re=642164]Zadig[/re]: The real problem will start when they realize that it’s Dumbya’s Solicitor General that not only successfully argued to throw out Prop 8 in California, but sounds like he wants to take this case, if it gets challenged in court.

  • Wonderman

    I can’t read RedState because I’m afraid I will be pulled into the “let’s love Bush gain” vortex, and my god the last time I fucked that sucker, I got a raging war disease!

  • Miss Kublik

    RedState is spanking itself gleefully with a cinnamon-scented paddle because George Bush has been vindicated

    Yes indeed. Our long national cakewalk is finally over.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    it’s about whether it’s appropriate to have a huge, neighborhood-dominating mosque or not.

    When does St. Patrick’s Cathedral get torn down? That’s one fucking huge celebration of child rape, and there are many children in the area!

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    [re=642120]imissopus[/re]: Perhaps the intern is confusing New York City with Des Moines.

    Oh, wait. It wouldn’t really even dominate downtown Des Moines. Guess you can’t expect too much from someone interning at National Review.

  • turdsandwich

    I’m a Katrina Trinko stalker and not too surprised to find that this is she:

  • AddHomonym

    Obama speaks out. Bush is silent. Who’s wearing the cojones now, henngghgh?

  • WriteyWriterton

    [re=642113]BlueStateLiberal[/re]: And Rummy pressing Saddam’s flesh.

  • Enslave the Whales

    1. Truly, the shitheads at NRO just assume that their readers have mush for brains. A fifteen-story building DOMINATING a neighborhood in lower Manhattan? Fuck it. I’m just about ready for the civil war.

    2. For some reason, I still get exasperated by the “Christians” who find all their trick rules from God in the Old Testament, oblivious to the fact that Jesus, Paul and the entire Holy Board of Directors say, repeatedly, that the New Testament REPLACES the Old Testament.

    Hint 1: That’s why it’s called the NEW Testament.

    Hint 2: That’s why Iowans are allowed to eat pork chops.

    Do you know when a wingnut is going to lie? He opens his mouth and the escaping air forms semi-intelligible sounds. But when a wingnut is going to absolutely lie his motherfuckin’ ass off he says “the left” or “liberals” without ANY names to check on, while gloating. I’d love to know where this “new respect” for George Bush has come from? If anything, people are trying to get him to put you little authoritarian bigots back in the box from whence he unleashed you. Stupid fucking redstate and to think you once had them on your blogroll, wonkette. The wonkette, she is a vicious slut, though it appears redstate has been removed because like all macho wingnuts he’d rather hang around wonkette’s brother…especially in the shower.
