Sure, you’ve heard “We’ve Got to Stop the Mosque At Ground Zero,” but have you heard “SALT IN THE WOUND”? Hatred and images of people dying in a terrorist attack never sounded so upbeat!

This weekend, our afternoon editor will be raising his bottle of free PR booze (the only kind of booze he can afford on your Wonkette dole) to America’s week of embarrassing itself and inflaming anti-Americanism in the Muslim world. And you should join him in drowning our collective sorrows!

So your afternoon editor found this video on Team Sarah today, but do you know what else he found on there? THIS PICTURE:

As you get drunk this weekend, remember there is still hope. In just 34 years, we will all be saved by President Trig. [YouTube]

  1. I like the red neck soundtrack from a guy who’s never set foot in New York in his life and would probably have a heart attack if he suddenly found himself surrounded by all them foreigners.

  2. Holy shit, it’s been nine fucking years! Get over it! I’m so tired of people who don’t live anywhere near New York and don’t know anyone who was in any way involved in 9/11 weeping over something that had no impact on them aside from screwing up their TV viewing habits for a couple weeks.

  3. Robert Christgau retired last month so I’ll be reviewing this ala Christgau.

    Post 9/11 angst has never sounded as sour as when it’s hyphenated with mediocre pub rock. Rita Jones’ Salt in the Wound begins by sonically recreating the attack on the WTC as a misguided tribute to the terror attack. Breaking into a sub-standard ZZ-Top progression, sung by Steve Dansby doing his best impersonation of an angry Barry Manilow. Remember the days when people were paid by the word for their music reviews? Those days are gone. Goodbye Bobby C.

  4. I made it to :55 before concluding that Rita W. Jones should take her songwriting pencil and paper and shove them, unceremoniously, up her ass. Sideways.

  5. They want a crusade against all Muslims for the 20 guys that pulled off 9/11.

    But really this is an “issue” raised by tea party and Repubicans to motivate their partisans, remind them how Shrub “kept us safe” except when it mattered on 9/11. And that will make voters afraid of Demoncrats.

    Perhaps if they had any new or good or interesting ideas, we could talk about America’s future.

  6. Salt in the wound? I assume this is a euphemism for something obscene, like using the tears of patriots as a personal lubricant. I don’t have the sound on, but there’s a fuckload of flags and crying in that video so I figure I’m in the ballpark.

  7. These anti-American motherfuckers are enjoying this entirely too much. They have to have somebody to hate, and they have to have somebody to feel better than. They’re fucking pathological, and they’re a disgrace to the ideals of this country.

    They say Islam is killing democracy? They are, and they can’t see it. Is there a word that describes people who’ve become exactly what they say they despise? I’m so fucking mad I can’t think straight right now.

  8. [re=643202]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: One of my favorite things about all those Red State types with the “Never Forget” and crying eagle bumper stickers is that they’ll also be among the first to stand and cheer whenever some Half Term Governor starts bashing all those East Coast elitists in New York. You can’t have it both ways- New York is either in Real America or it isn’t and if it’s not, then New York can put up Jeremiah Wright’s Hooters and Mosque Emporium if it wants to.

  9. I hate that whole “You can build a mosque here when we can build a synagogue in Mecca” argument SO MUCH. Saudi Arabia is not a democracy with freedom of religion baked into its charter. The entire point of America’s existence is that we are a place that allows people to worship whatever religion they choose while many, many other countries do not. How fucking hard can that be to grasp?

    We have gotten to be such a stupid people. Again I say fuck.

  10. [re=643234]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Thank-you. I am so tired of these people who would loathe me and my fellow New Yorkers and yet are freakishly aroused by the horror of 9/11.I wish they had had to deal with it in real time , like we did,rather than sitting on their fat arses watching it from their couches.

  11. Why does the singer want the community center built in Death Valley? Why does he think Death Valley people are irrelevant? Is this that “irony” thing I heard so much of in my English Lit classes?

  12. [re=643233]BlueStateLiberal[/re]: I could only stomach this thing once, so I must have blinked when the pictures of Junior Bush holding hands with the Saudi Arabian king went by.

    I am so tired of the idiot hysteria over the abandoned Burlington Coat Factory Sufi community Center. Do these people know the Sufis are the ones who spin? Which is why they need the work out room, to stay in shape.

  13. I live among these people. They are so indoctrinated by Faux News and Hate Talk Radio that they repeat this shit to the exclusion of anything rational or intelligent breaking through. Hopeless. Utterly hopeless.

  14. yuk it up, but the U.S hasn’t seen this kind of manufactured and institutionalized bigotry/racism for political gain in 60 years.
    It’s not funny anymore. Sorry to break the snark vibe, but it’s getting scary.

  15. They haven’t seen salt in the wound yet. Maybe if gay Muslims get married at the mosque, while facing Ground Zero rather than Mecca, that would be rubbing salt in the wound.

  16. [re=643268]Escape Goat Nation[/re]: Wait, whut, there is a snarky vibe here? I was in it for the Trucknutz.

    Also, since I lay claim to be the founding member of the “Trig in ’44″© presidential campaign, I would like to add a little slogan:

    Retard Strong for America!™

  17. I’m not clicking play just in case it is somehow worse than America (We Stand as One) and I have to go on a shooting spree.

    I hate that whole “You can build a mosque here when we can build a synagogue in Mecca” argument SO MUCH.

    You must admit a bunch of bumbling fucknuts from bumfuck trying to build a synagogue in Mecca would be entertaining. Hell, watching them try to spell it would be a hoot.

  18. OK, I’ve got one more before dee nitey nite. Do you knpw what 1st responders irrigate wounds with? Saline, which, of course is sterile Salt water.
    Salt water in the wounds. What. A .Bunch. Of. Clowns.

  19. I won’t watch it. I just paid good Ameros for this laptop, and I can’t afford to smash the screen. Or my rocks-glass into my head, over and over and over and –

  20. [re=643246]Cape Clod[/re]: I noticed that one of the WaPo comments describes the GZM as “a towering, 13-story, 100-million-dollar edifice.” Speaking as an ex patriot New Yorker, that’s fucking hilarious. Thirteen stories in lower Manhattan is not “towering,” it’s charmingly quaint.

  21. [re=643311]artpepper[/re]: Give the man credit for a)knowing how to spell edifice and b)knowing the difference between an edifice and an orifice.

    He must have been one of the paid ones.

  22. [re=643293]obfuscator[/re]: That’s no big surprise to me. I don’t believe there have been more than seven or eight different country tunes written since 1985.

  23. Yeah! Saudi Arabia won’t allow a synagogue to be built in Mecca! Why should the United States have higher standards for religious freedom than Saudi Arabia, anyway?

  24. Clichéd lyrics with sloppily played music and melody that consists of two or three very uninspiring notes.

    I give this two infected thumbs up Rita W Jones fat ass.

    However, good job on taking the easy path of hate and bigotry for self promotion.

  25. Salt in the wound? 9/11 isn’t a wound, it was a win-win for rednecks – kill some Jew York furriners and homos, make mouth-breating playground bullying the new foreign policy genius, and turn hate-filled spew into acceptable public discourse. I guess that’s win-win-win, and I’m sure I’m missing a bunch more.

  26. Happy Sat night, Wonkette! For those of you who care (Vulpes82, iwillsavethispatient), the 77%-counted Aussie 2010 Federal Elections may be a heartbreak for Labor, since it seems a few too many Aussies have voted for the Sex Party, or perhaps the Climate Sceptics Party or even the Non-Custodial Parents Party, and the Opposition Liberal/National coalition is currently 4 seats closer to the 76-seat goal than Labor is, so Oz may end-up with a Coalition govt & Consensus(read: “Liberal Party” ) PM just like the bloody Poms have, but w/o the fey rabbit-costume the Brit PM wears under his suit…

  27. [re=643341]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: It’s a ripoff of Pink’s song, “Dear Mr. President,” and it’s possibly worse than the one posted here.

    [re=643307]WriteyWriterton[/re]: You’re right.

  28. [re=643239]Extemporanus[/re]: Had to actually work yesterday, and a bit bleary eyed over my first cup of coffee, but did you notice that Roy Lichtenstein stole your bear?

  29. [re=643300]user-of-owls[/re]:
    Die Fahne hoch!
    Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
    SA marschiert mit mutig, festem Schritt.
    Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschoss’n
    Marschier’n im Geist in unser’n Reihen mit

    I have always found it remarkable that something so evil should be so kitch.

  30. I’m not sure what offends me more–the content of the lyrics, or the fact that Mr. Bumblefuck Hick Singer can’t even maintain a proper pitch. Is he singing, or is he try to do white-boy rap? In either case he fails miserably.

    We are a nation of LAWS, not a nation of “feelings” or “emotions” or political hysteria (at least, we’re not supposed to be). The people who want to build this mosque are American citizens. The First Amendment to the Constitution clearly establishes their right to practice their faith–period. You don’t get to pick-and-choose which parts of the Constitution are valid. If I gotta live with the Second Amendment, then the religious wing-nuts gotta live with the First Amendment.

    I’ve made this point before, but it bears repeating: It’s not okay for Muslims to worship Allah NEAR Ground Zero, but it’s okay for greedy Wall Street capitalists to build an office tower and worship the Almighty Dollar ON Ground Zero? Am I missing something?

  31. OK, which Wonketteer posted this on the CNN Assange story in response to someone bringing up Larry Craig?

    “lib4aclu If he took a shlt, you must acquit.
    5 minutes ago | Like (2) | Report abuse”

  32. [re=643359]Chernobyl Soup[/re]: I’d hate to question any actual person who feels that rape has been committed on them, but then again, you do have to wonder about the amazing timing.

    I had expected something more like Assange’s safe house being “accidentally struck by an off-course cruise missile”.

  33. [re=643360]Katydid[/re]: On a serious note, if it actually turned out that he was framed in some way on this charge, it would really – in my mind – destroy the very last tiny shred of hope that I would ever hold out that this country is not in a death spiral.

  34. [re=643364]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: The rape charge is gone, but the Swedish prosecutors are leaving the molestation on the table. This is playing out like The Girl Who Played with Fire. Was some underage eastern European hooker involved? Where is Lisbeth Salander when we need her?

  35. DC is a town for wimps who are afraid of heights. No skyscrapers (can’t be taller than the Capitol!), and Capitol hill is SUCH a misnomer. I went from living on Capitol Hill in Seattle to living on Capitol Hill in DC, and it took me 2 weeks to accept that this little landscaping accident was the hill. It’s like flat places are stupid, or something. I should write a paper on the correlation between verticality and patent grants.

  36. Wonketeers, this song is a great piece of propaganda music. And notice how carefully worded it is toward the end: “…allowing the religion of those who put them in their graves to be honored near the spot where they died.” Joseph Goebbels would be so proud of this song’s composer, Rita W. Jones.

  37. [re=643363]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: You’re right, and maybe I shouldn’t have joked about the comments, but they were all so ridiculous.

    The timing of the charges are pretty suspect, though, and I think it says a lot that people were immediately suspicious of the US government’s possible involvement in setting up Assange. And we’re not being paranoid, either. It’s plausible, given the history of some of our goverment’s agencies.

    [re=643367]weejee[/re]: Apparently you can be charged with molestation in Sweden if you do something to an adult.

  38. The Jullian Assange tale is getting stranger by the moment per Zennie62. Is the DoD/CIA trying to frame Assange? Are the Sons of Cheney trying to embarrass Obarmar? Are the Wikileakers trying to frame the CIA? Did Jullian actually cop a feel?

    I will be interesting to see whose fingerprints are on the papers wrapping this lutefisk story, but my money is on the Michele Bachmann-Orly Taitz-Steve King Triscatological Commission.

  39. [re=643388]oneoclockjump[/re]: The future’s so FUCKING SCARY ain’t it my friend? We gotta get that black muslim OUT of the White House! So nice white Christian folk can go to fucking KINDERGARTEN in peace, amirite?

  40. [re=643388]oneoclockjump[/re]: Well. He writes, “I am really fucking sick and fucking tired of being told that ‘hate’ is what motivates me,” in a post entitled, “You Want Hate? I’ll Give You Hate,” and then proceeds to write how much he hates, just absolutely hates, liberals, all the while coming up with what he thinks are creative, but are really nonsensical, ways to tell us to get fucked.

    And his commenters think he’s brilliant.

    This comment probably best sums up the comments: “Here fucking here.”

  41. [re=643358]weejee[/re]: If Ken really is coming to my unemployment-ravaged, tomato-packing, foreclosure-ground-zero, tell him I’ll buy him a slippery nipple, or whatever’s his pleasure and we’ll check out my own little hometown mosque. Also.

    Not sure who the Wonketteer was who said a couple days ago “Hey Iraq, sorry for all the ground zeros around your mosques”, but I’ve used that line many times, to great effect. Thanks!

  42. [re=643395]Poisoned Rationality[/re]: Yes, the “ground zeroes” comment was great.
    Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and Afghani civilians dead or injured, who knows how many buildings and how much infrastructure destroyed, but golly gee, those Muslins are SO INSENSITIVE TO OUR FEELINGS!
    Any right-wingers lurking here need not respond with comments about how I was probably glad we were attacked on 9/11, how I hate my country, etc.
    Thank you, also.

  43. [re=643393]Katydid[/re]: That was some pretty awesome hate. I’m not sure what he’s angry about, but still awesome. The comments are great too for both several “I hate muslims” comments as well as “just teach your daughter how to shoot a gun and she’ll be fine comments.”

    Anyways, since I’m bored, I added this:

    “Yeah! Great F’ing points. You know why I really hate liberals. Because they want to spend money on public schools. I hate having my daughter having to get a free and decent education. And I hate how those liberals always want to spend money building highways. Screw that. They even spent a lot of money in the stimulus bill building highways. Damnit, if we were a free country, we’d be driving on gravel. You know what would be even worse? Them wanting to spend my hard-earned salary on building schools. And you know what I hate even worse? People who say bigoted things about another group of people, like muslims, and then get slammed for it. I’m the racist for saying that? No, you’re the racist for noticing that I said something about muslims. God damn liberals”

  44. [re=643397]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Well, “Joe Bob,” let’s see if they respond to you with another, “Here fucking here.” Which, I think, is republitard for, “I agree with you.”

  45. [re=643401]Katydid[/re]: I’m kind of scared about what might happen next, actually, considering the amount of discussion in the comments about being so angry they want to shoot things.

  46. [re=643403]Hooray For Anything[/re]: I am scared as well, these people are just consumed with rage and hatred for our Hopey and anyone who agrees with him on anything. I have lived in this country for 20 years on and off and I cannot recall anything like this before.

  47. [re=643403]Hooray For Anything[/re]: I’m continually amazed that these people can still amaze me. I couldn’t believe the commenter who told the poster to teach his 5-year-old kid how to shoot, and said it would be a nice bonding experience for the two of them.

    I’m also wondering just where they’ll stop; is there a line they won’t cross? I used to think so, I don’t anymore. I’m afraid for the people involved in the mosque, and I’m afraid if the mosque does get built, something awful will happen to it. In fact, it seems likely to me that someone will at least try to prevent construction, or worse.

    It’s getting to where I think it’s safer for them to not build it. In the long run, though, it’s probably more dangerous if they cave.

    I’ve been watching Fox News lately, just to see exactly how they’re fanning the hatred, and it’s an evil enterprise. It’s all lies, manipulation and demagoguery. Liberals really should watch Fox more often, to learn exactly how people are being manipulated. It really is like watching a modern-day Leni Riefenstahl film.

  48. [re=643407]Katydid[/re]: Looks like Joe Bob either shut them up or their all at the gun range doing some family bonding. Did get some Timothy McVeigh vibe out of some of the comments but what can go wrong about getting drunk and taking your five year old to the rifle range to get out your anger at the President?

    I used to listen to Hannity while driving just to see how long I could go before wanting to slam into another car on purpose. I went ten minutes at the most. Which is why I can’t watch FOX News– I even gave up on cable news entirely somewhere around the health care debate. I still think this is some diabolical plot by the right-wing to be so insane and mind-numbingly stupid that they eventually wear us lefties down, much like a kid throwing a temper tantrum because his parents won’t buy him the newest Star Wars Lego toy. That’s the Tea Baggers– lying on the floor of WalMart shreiking as loud as possible about how mommy and daddy won’t get what they want.

    And yeah, if they build the Community Center near Ground Zero, they better have some hard core security. Maybe hire a bunch of bad ass black Muslims just as a big FU to everybody.

  49. [re=643407]Katydid[/re]:
    Watching FOX News is like giving yourself a lobotomy. I’ll pass. I do share your concern that FOX is fanning the flames. My hope is that the people sucking at the FOX News teat are too fat and lazy to really do any damage. But then, look at Timothy McVeigh.

    But hey! Some good news! I got my Wonkette Don’t Teabag on Me T-Shirt today and I think everything on it is spelled correct! Joy! I’ll never take it off.

  50. [re=643411]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Hear fucking hear. I am having more trouble with this summer’s anti-undocumented immigrant, gay marriage and mosque Tea Bagger stupidity than last summer’s town-hall health care stupidity. I think they have expanded the crazy, and with Harry Reid jumping on board…well…there are no words.

  51. [re=643414]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Jinx.

    Eh forget it Jake, it’s August. Balloon Juice had a thread about how August is always full of stupidity: like Death Panels, Gary Condit or how Sarah Palin is wonderful choice for a VP candidate. Things sober up in September when everyone gets back from their vacations at the Eastern Shore and the Cape. Fortunately or unfortunately, all everyone will want to talk about is the upcoming elections so if Obama somehow gets a peace treaty in the Middle East or gets unemployment under 5%, either the press won’t notice or the story will be about how it could possibly hurt the Democrats.

  52. [re=643407]Katydid[/re]: “I’m continually amazed that these people can still amaze me. I couldn’t believe the commenter who told the poster to teach his 5-year-old kid how to shoot, and said it would be a nice bonding experience for the two of them.”

    You Commie Pinko Liberal Wonkette SCUM!: Five years is too late. FETUSES should be taught how to shoot, and safe gun handling techniques.

    Hell, I teach my SPERM how to sho . . . .

    Well, you know what I mean.

    Acting Director
    GOP & NRA Wonkette Outreach Desk

  53. [re=643349]Bearbloke[/re]: Should be about time for you to be up and about. Since it looks like you have a hung Parliament downunder, are you blokes going to actually hang them? Go back to your roots and do the Ned Kelly thing down at the local Gaol?

  54. For fucks sake, 9/11 was totally an inside job. I can understand the mouth-breathing Jesus-freak flag-waving right denying it, but any leftist with a brain has to know 9/11 was massive hoax meant to further the military-industrial complex and American hegemony and help the evil fucks who run this country.

  55. Rita W. Jones. I’m guessin’ a truck-stop waitress with a beehive and pineapple earrings that jingle to “Redneck Woman” over and over and over again. I thought they hated them city folks, anyways.

  56. Since tomorrow I’m moving to a new address within – *consults map* – some unclear number of blocks away from WTC (thanks, old-timey jumbled downtown layout!), I can now have a legitimate opinion about this potentially going up in my backyard. If you manage to scrape the money together, build it.

  57. [re=643423]Way Cool Larry[/re]: The job was outsourced to the lizard aliens from planet Mexico. 9/11 had ‘cheap Mexican knock-off’ written all over it.

  58. [re=643412]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: HEY! NO FAIR! I ordered mine the first day, and all I got was some nonsensical via: UPSMI Expedited / Tracking # 9102029696346601338718 shit, which isn’t even a valid tracking number in any system that I’ve been able to find.

  59. Oh, and it wasn’t insensitive for Chucky Heston, the Patron Saint of Paranoia, and his Dipshit Troopers of the NRA to hold their Denver convention immediately following the Columbine shootings. They were simply exercising their Constitutional right. This is totally different. Sure it is, hypocritical assholes.
    Just drink you Old Milwaukee, shoot your gunz, and blow your dogs.

  60. [re=643240]imissopus[/re]: Bravo.

    The problem is a lot of these anti Burlington Coat factory transformation people would like their form of Sharia law in the U.S. so your logic would escape them.

  61. [re=643228]Katydid[/re]: Holding all Muslims responsible for the acts of the 19 hijackers is like holding all Christians responsible for the lynchings of the KKK.

  62. Sure, everyone is concerned with the “ground zero mosque” when it’s August and you’re sitting around in your underwear sweating.
    But I guarantee you, come November, a 13-story Burlington Coat Factory would be looking pretty awesome, too. That’s 13 stories of sizes and selection, people. With optional layaways. And a rainbow array of galoshes. The terrorists didn’t eliminate sleet and slush.

  63. [re=643423]Way Cool Larry[/re]: I agree with you 100% Look at the size of a Boeing 747. Look at the size of a 100 story building.
    Also, WTC 7. Also, Marvin Bush.
    They will point to the Popular Mechanics article, but I read that article and was very unimpressed with what they had to say about building 7. That “some combination of shaking and fire COULD HAVE caused the building to collapse.” They pretty much admit they have no idea why building 7 fell. Straight down. Just like the others.

  64. [re=643401]Katydid[/re]: It appears that I got called a “fucking fuckjumble” as well as a “fucking fuckyokel who was last place in the competition to be the Fistfucked Fuckloser of Fuckdome.” That was among other things. The guy does have a talent for cursing, I’ll give him that.

  65. [re=643397]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Funny – I could only read about half of his spew, then as I was scrolling down to leave my own comment about how I agree his daughter is fucked (not because of Muslins but cuz of exposure to him), even though I refuse to read the comments (it’d be like staring directly at an eclipse) I somehow landed on yours and read it. Great stuff, but I don’t think logic is gonna work on this tard, alas, and I’m sure sarcasm is beyond him.

  66. [re=643441]Hooray For Anything[/re]: “The guy does have a talent for cursing, I’ll give him that.”

    He does, and it can only be inspired by an utherwise impossible to articulate rage. You don’t want to be the one stopped in front of him when this psychopath’s brakes fail.

  67. Dunno why the TP’ers have focused on religion. What’s striking to me is the 9/11 attackers were all thin, neat, unmarried men. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) If they’d just focus on people like that, we could put all this bigotry behind us.

  68. The firefighter in the still frame of the video is weeping because he knows that nine years later he’ll have mercury poisoning from breathing the air at Ground Zero and the Repubicans are going to say “fuck you first responder”. Oh, the salt in the wound.

  69. Creative Director Michael Jones — I think I’ve seen his work on my local cable access channel. Here’s a creative note: it needs some crying eagles.

  70. [re=643439]gurukalehuru[/re]: 767’s… But nearly fully loaded with fuel. Frankly, I wouldn’t discount any conspiracy theory involving the US government – however, there is a pretty convincing case that the two towers collapsed consistently with planes crashing into them. As far as 7 is concerned – who even knew/cared about this building? I also believe it was loaded with diesel fuel for backup power generators.

    Really no one will ever know for sure, but I think we can all agree it has contributed to turning this country into a pack of lunatics.

  71. [re=643454]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: 47, 67, whatever. The fuel was gone in about 2 seconds. And no plane hit building 7. and Marvin Bush. and a whole bunch of other suspicious shit. Plus they had motive. Plus they worked like hell to impede the investigation. Plus that’s the kind of thing they do.

  72. [re=643454]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: The Pentagon story is even more questionable. As Howard Zinn so profoundly pointed out, the US govt is the biggest terrorist orginization ever. (Boy, does that piss off wingtards.) But, ultimately, you are right. Bush/Cheney expoited the hell out this tragedy.

  73. [re=643423]Way Cool Larry[/re]: Yes! There’s no way those A-rabs could have pulled off 9/11. They’re brown for god’s sake. Perhaps they could have crashed a camel into those buildings, but an airplane — ha, ha, ha.

    Unless Israel talked bin Laden into having his Islamobots carry out the attack. It’s so obvious. Forget connecting the dots, it’s just one dot — bin Laden and Israel teamed up. (OK, that’s actually two dots.)

    Unless — and I’m just throwing this out there — Israel was behind the North Tower attack, bin Laden behind the South Tower, Marvin Bush (whoever he is) the Pentagon, etc. By sheer coincidence all happened on the same day. (Actually, that’s not a coincidence — they all wanted to do something on 9/11 because of all the patriotic songs about 9/11.)

  74. “Rita W. Jones” is probably the songwriting pen name for Sarah Palin’s pet snake and Twitter/Facebook ghostwriter Rebecca A. Mansour.

    Mansour, after all, has a previous history as a “Los Angeles screenwriter”, penning an awful screenplay based on her own life (her solitary effort). She has such a high opinion of herself she is likely to attempt a redneck down-home-twangy theme song, despite her own privileged Lebanese-American background being as far removed as you can get.

  75. I’m a little late to the game, but I went over to that hate blog mentioned earlier and here is what I commented.

    Eddie Bear, great post! Jesus couldn’t have said it better.

  76. [re=643468]FlipOffResearch[/re]: Ha ha, good one. I wonder if he’ll have the nerve to call you some stupid fuckthing now that you’ve brought the big J into it.

    [re=643441]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Hmmm, he’s smarter than he appears to be. I didn’t think he’d pick up on the sarcasm. Thing is, he’s throwing the word “fuck” around, but he’s not at all clever about it. “Fucktard” is clever; “fuckjumble” and the “fisted fuckloser of fuckdome” make no sense.

    It would be much better to use the words we already in a novel combination. As in: “Fuck you, you fucking motherfucker. If you would take your fat fucking head out of your fat fucking fuckhole once in awhile, you would know what’s going on, you cocksucking, mother-raping, shit-eating, pickfucking, did I mention motherfucking, asshole.”

Saddam Hussein with a few bunkers full of “air conditioning chemicals” would scare the hell out of me even today, and he’s dead!

    SCENE: Camp, morning. Just outside the massive Fuckdome of Fucktardery, whatever weekend Wonketeers there are assemble to ply their hate ‘gainst some random fucktards blog.


    Where is Ken Layne?


    He has himself gone to view their commentariat.


    Of ‘tarded commentariat they have full three score thousand!


    There’s five to one; besides, they all are fresh.


    ’tis a fearful odds. Damnit, such a fight, and for a late week-end post!
    Right now they muster their rusty barrel of a fucktorch firing out the fuckjuices of fury
    ensuring us death of painful poisoning from flamed out fuckholes and marshall their
    array of scissors-fucking fuckbeagles.

    Enter Ken Layne


    O that we now had here
    But one ten thousand of those Wonketeers
    That not fuck off on the ‘net to-day!


    What’s he that wishes so?
    My cousin JACK STUEF? No, my fair cousin:
    If we are mark’d to die, we are enough
    To do our Wonkette loss; and if to live,
    The fewer posts, the greater share of honour.
    God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more!
    This day is called – wait, what the fuck day is this?

    Sunday, my liege

    God, it Total, Utter Fucktard Day

    It’s National Hot Dog Day


    very well. This day is called National Hot Dog Day.
    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
    And rouse him at the name of Hot Dogs.
    Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
    But he’ll remember with advantages
    What post he made that day: then shall our names,
    Familiar in his mouth as household words –
    Ken Layne, ed., Benincasa and Katydid,
    Jack Stuef and Lauxcaveman, Say it With Wookies and JMP,
    Be in their flowing cups freshly remember’d.
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Hot Dog Day shall ne’er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remember’d;
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his ink with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
    This day shall make him e’er viler:
    And Wonketeers absent and now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap, whiles any speaks
    That fought with us, upon this Hot Dog Day!

    Re-enter FRUHLINGER


    My sovereign lord, bestow yourself with speed:
    The teatards are bravely in their battles set,
    And will with all expedience launch
    all manner of fucktardery upon us!


    They want hate? I’ll show them hate.



    Once more I come to know of thee, librul fuck,
    moran, and idiot! I took my daughter to kindergarten today
    and am now so incensed with rage … god I hate you librul
    tards and the muslin, facist worlds you build
    Yes, I hate you, lefty statist. I fucking hate you
    with all of the fibers of my fucking being to the point
    I hope the rectal bleeding forced upon you by the fuckeagle
    of freedom never abates. And that is before I even fucking get
    to lead Sherman’s March to the Sea on your fuckgash. And since
    you admit to hating me just for what I believe, then why should
    I turn the other cheek? Fuck that. And fuck you.


    Truly, an eagle cries.


    Fuck You


    Please just shut the fuck up.

  80. [re=643462]gurukalehuru[/re]: You think a George Bush led government could pull off something like this? Just before you finish smoking whatever it is you are smoking, pass it to your left.

  81. [re=643477]Jumping Jim[/re]: The two things that beg the question for me:

    (1) Clearly, if we look at the African Embassy Bombings / Saudi Barracks we can see that Al Qaeda (nebulous as they are as an organization) had the capability. They also had the *will* to do so, as did a million other terrorist organizations, so it seems a bit odd that we would go out of the way to prove that they *didn’t* do it when they *say* they did it.

    …and (2), which is your point. See also: Hurricane Katrina.

  82. [re=643475]Tim[/re]: Bravo!
    Alas, I cannot wage war on said blog as the stupid will make my head explode.
    (Thanks to all Wonketteers for their brave sacrifices!)

  83. [re=643475]Tim[/re]: Thanks, again. In your dramatization, we’ve come to the point where a man dies, not in error of his or her sort-of views…

  84. [re=643477]Jumping Jim[/re]: There was no “George Bush led government.” Hell, Cheney wouldn’t even let the investigators talk to little Georgie alone.
    There are many theories, and I don’t pretend to have any inside information, but I see 3 main ringleaders: Dick Cheney (who was running the government, and therefore the investigation), Marvin Bush (one of the titular president’s younger and smarter brothers, who also coincidentally happened to be the head of security for the World Trade Center) and Larry Silverstein, the owner of the buildings, who made a tidy profit of $5 billion from the insurance on buildings which had been losing money, so he had plenty of motive, all right.
    These people overthrow governments and start wars as a matter of course. Do you seriously think the deaths of 3,000 innocent people are going to cause them any loss of sleep? I don’t. They are that evil.

  85. I hope they build the mosque in the originally proposed location. I do think it is insensitive and disrespectful, but that’s no reason to prevent something completely legal and protected by the constitution. Those trying to prevent building the mosque are reacting from fear, and decisions are rarely sound when they are founded in fear. I hate to use this tired cliche, but “the terrorists win” if we start disregarding our constitution in reaction to fear.

  86. [re=643491]gurukalehuru[/re]: >Do you seriously think the deaths of 3,000 innocent people are going to cause them any loss of sleep?

    Yes. I again solemnly swear that their sleep is irrelevant and they’d be finished in days. Do you underestimate our (admittedly Israeli hating) counterintelligence?

  87. [re=643477]Jumping Jim[/re]: Building 420 was an inside job!!!

    Seriously..are we exchanging emails ? I got nothing but stems and seeds, and it’s the dry season in Austin.

  88. Okay, so, like, the national IQ is, like, a schoolbus? With bad brakes? On, like, a canyon-mountain road? In Colorado? And, omg, omg, like, the driver is Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck or the Wasilla Quitter or Newtie and he/she/it is, like, drunk or whatevs? And Wonketeers are, y’know, like the students? The passengers?

    And we’ve gone off the road and are plunging toward the rocky bottom of the canyon.

  89. Went looking for that linky above to doubleplusundead using the search term “fuck”. I really should have known better. There’s probably more and more creative uses of the word in this thread than in the entire fucking winger post. Thanks for bringing the fuck, you fucking fuckers!

  90. [re=643499]babsinbuffalo[/re]: Don’t really matter.
    1. It’s August, likely the slowest news month of the year
    2. It’s red state red meat, so it really doesn’t matter if it is tainted, the dogs are howling
    3. This morning George Will, that esteemed soothsayer and mystic reader of his crystal balls, said when asked about the Islamic Cultural Center & Ground Zero “A month from now people are going to say ‘what was that all about.'” Joltin’ George went on grumping that “..a fundamentally weak story turns on sensitivity…and sensitivity is overrated.”

    So with snark on, if we sheeple per Mr. Will this story will be like wide-stanced Larry Craig where everyone forgot about that in a couple of weeks. Oh wait…

    With snark off, this story makes the USA look incredibly intolerant and hypocritical.

  91. I don’t suppose there are enough liberals with no real lives to organize a sizable rally in Oklahoma City protesting every church within five blocks of the Federal Building.

  92. [re=643502]weejee[/re]: Heh, you know, when you find yourself wishing more people thought like George Will, it’s pretty close to game over.

  93. Who would have known that wingtards would have such empathy & love for a bunch of unionized government workers who routinely vote Democratic, enjoy full-freight health insurance, and have well-funded pension plans?

    [re=643463]Radiotherapy[/re]: Sure. The Pentagon was hit by a missile, not an airplane, and American Flight 77 with its passengers was taken to Area 51, right?

    I agree with the theories that 9/11 could have been prevented but Dubyah et al. turned a blind eye to the potential of an attack to further their own interests, but I really find the JEWS DID WTC style of conspiracy theories fucked up.

    One thing is for sure – any motherfucker responsible for 9/11, be they Muslin or Murrikan, will burn in Hell for all eternity for bringing this nation 9 years of crying eagle graphics & bad Photoshopped tributes, a second term for Dubyah, and two wars.

  96. [re=643504]Mad Brahms[/re]: George Will may be the last of his generation of conservative intellectuals who at least tried to sound rational and well-informed.

  97. [re=643507]predilectrix[/re]: I see that and I am honored. Or at least, Mr. Fucktard Fuck should be honored. I thought about going back there today to see what sort of hornet’s nest I stirred up but then I realized beating myself up with a sledge hammer would probably be better for sanity.

  98. Well “Woodsy” (what kind of a name is that?) just added to the commentary at Simple one word post. One used here, in fact, when faced with one who wishes not to argue, but just be a shit. Head.

  99. [re=643502]weejee[/re]: [re=643504]Mad Brahms[/re]: [re=643532]BarackMyWorld[/re]: In two years, we’ll be pining for the level-headed moderation and measured discourse of John McGloughlin.

  100. [re=643506]President Beeblebrox[/re]: There are probably 8-9 comments, including yours, that are essentially the same in paragraph structure on this thread: some skeptical comment about the terrorist attacks of that fateful day. Fuck the govt, fuck bush, fuck cheney, fuck rove, fuck muslins, fuck jews, fuck xians, fuck the 911 commission, fuck oil, fuck tv, fuck wingtards, fuck fuck, fuck me, fuck you, (apologies to Ministry).
    But, then we ALL agree, it was the subsequent exploitation and schmaltzy and costly over reaction that we object too.

  101. It seems that certain right-wing bloggers, after enjoying the above referenced stream-of-consciousness play on the word “fuck”, are now swapping DC bus and train info ahead of the 8/28 Beck/Palin rally.
    And how are these fucktards (though that screed almost ruined the f-word for me, I have picked up a few new ones) going to get from the airport to the rally?
    By public transportation, of course, particularly Amtrak, which they are recommending because “it’s subsidized :-)”.
    Are these the same people who protest that they don’t want to be forced to contribute any of their hard-earned money towards the common good, because that would be socialism/naziism/dictatorship/slavery, and this is America, damnit!
    Please note that I am quoting that smiley face above, & I promise to never use one again.

  102. [re=643506]President Beeblebrox[/re]: The trouble with the Truther theories about 9/11 is that they presume the American people are so peace-loving that they never would have agreed to war if Al Qaeda had just blown up one of the towers. No, we had to fake two plane crashes, etc.

  103. [re=643538]kinginyellow[/re]: The problem with 9/11 is that everything about that day was fucked beyond all fucking norms of fucktardry; no scrambled jets, and when two were finally launched they were directed to Long Island (!!??); a fuckton of war games; idiocy at the Little School House in Texas; disappearing airplanes; no videotape of the Pentagon attack of one of the highest security buildings on the planet; a huge building that wasn’t hit by anything except a few bricks and flying glass collapsed into its own footprint; a stonewalled investigation; Marvin Bush (the cocksucker who gave you Silverado S&L $1 trillion implosion) WAS THE HEAD OF WTC SECURITY; planted eye-witnesses, et cetera, et cetera. Not a lick of sense in the whole clusterfuck, until someone says…”controlled demolition.”

    Then the sun rises, the light bulb goes on and you realize, “Fuck me. We’ve been had.”

    Somebody fucked us, and it wasn’t a bunch of in-their-own-name-passport-carrying, alcoholic, flying school dropouts with fucking boxcutters.

  104. [re=643538]kinginyellow[/re]:What kind of reason is that not to be skeptical? That’s like saying we had to take out Saddam because he had WMD’s.
    Why would they fake that intel? Oh yeah, Iraq has Al Qaeda too. That’s two reasons. And he was a dictator, and he tortured his opponents, but wee don’t torture — well except tearists, for national security, and jesus was tortured too, like your stupid logic.

  105. [re=643541]Beanball[/re]: Hey I printed out your comment on sandpaper and rolled it into a tube. Then I anally penetrated myself until the blood loss started to make me a little dizzy, because I wanted to get some visceral sense of what having your brain must feel like.

  106. [re=643543]Mr Blifil[/re]: Ouch. But well played.

    There was absolutely nothing in the original post that could not be boiled down to horrible ineptitude and coincidence, and even less than nothing to tie all the disparate points together.

  107. Lord do I love that Marvin Bush story. I hate to indulge the Truthers, but it’s also bullshit.

    Besides, even if he had been in charge of security at the WTC, so what? He’d have been in a position to shut down the sophisticated air defenses that protected the towers, lest they fire off some SAMs and shoot the planes down before they got there? Told Delta Force to quit patrolling the rooftops with their handheld Stingers?

    Guys, Prison Planet is thataway.——->


    The (once) most powerful man in the world, Bill Clinton, couldn’t get a blowjob without the entire world finding out. Yet, somehow, a cabal of 100(0)+ people in the highest echelons of government is able to carry out the greatest conspiracy ever.

    Humans are just not that competent, and whistleblowers have blown the whistle over much less.

    Q.E.D. and lick my balls, bitch.

  109. [re=643547]facehead[/re]: To be fair, Tuskeegee. Also, a whole bunch of other crap the US did during the Cold War, from COINTELPRO to injecting pregnant ladies with radioisotopes and pretending they were vitamins, to see the effects of radiation on fetuses. Also, more recently, that whole secret torture thingy.

    Now, I think there’s other reasons why the whole 9/11 conspiracy thing is idiotic, but there’s honestly a reason why these inane conspiracy theories gain so much traction, and that largely has to do with the fact that our government has historically been extremely secretive, and has often taken advantage of that secrecy to do extremely shitty* things. And often enough, despite the fact that there have been tens or hundreds of people involved, it’s taken years or decades for these things to come to light.

    I’m just saying, I think you can draw a straight line from the actual terrible conspiracy that operated the Tuskeegee study, to the later crackpot conspiracy theories regarding crack and/or AIDS being created by the CIA as a weapon against African-Americans. Those ideas didn’t form from whole cloth, and Tuskeegee demonstrated that people are capable of keeping these things secret for a very long time.

    *FUN FACT: in every wonkete thread I’ve commented, I have used the word “shitty” at least once.

  110. I haven’t been able to visit or comment at Wonkette all weekend because of that freeze frame.

    Believe it or not, for people who really do have a wound, these asshats with their songs are the ones rubbing salt.

  111. [re=643535]user-of-owls[/re]: Perhaps lemmings have a more reasonable solution than pining for George Will & John McGloughlin.

    Just kidding. Grab your pitchforks and to the ramparts!!!!

  112. [re=643375]Neilist[/re]: I caught that, as well. That’s just in case anyone still wants to claim there is nothing “Anti-Muslim” about this storm in a shotglass…

  113. Unlike the Islamic Center, this song IS NOT protected by the First Amendment. On the contrary, Conspiracy to violate rights is a Federal Felony as is INCITING OR ATTEMPTING TO CAUSE a conspiracy to violate rights. (Federal Statute 18 USC 241)

    (i.e. Organizing a cross burning is a conspiracy to violate rights. Writing a song telling people we should get together and burn crosses is inciting or attempting to cause a conspiracy.)

    Not only should Trade Martin be sued, but he and everyone involved in the making and promotion of this song and video should be indicted by a Federal Grand Jury, which I would personally love to see. Perhaps sitting in Leavenworth for a few years will teach them the meaning of the word FREEDOM.

    At least 59 Muslims died on 9/11 including children and pregnant mothers. The World Trade Center was attacked by Al Qua’ida. The Islamic Center is being built by Americans. Therefore, who is this “They” this song speaks of?
