Gabby Giffords Appearance Makes Jonah Goldberg Curse Everybody Out

in a sensitive mood today.Touchy maggot sack Jonah Goldberg got into “one of his moods” today and typed a column entitled “To Hell With You People” over in his Corner, because he is incredibly sick to his stomach that the vicious liberal media did not bother to crucify and poop on Joe Biden’s corpse for saying something dumb and politically incorrect about how Tea Party legislators were “acting like terrorists” during the debt ceiling negotiations. SUCK DEVIL BALLZ all of you liberal elites, because Gabby Giffords’ surprise appearance in Congress reminds Jonah not of healing or hope, but of exactly how mean everybody in the leftist media was to his irrelevant gun freak girlfriend Sarah Palin when Giffords was shot. A little fairness, you socialist commie assholes?

Here is Jonah with his pants down in front of his computer:

But think about this for a second. The Giffords shooting sent the media elite in this country into a bout of St. Vitus’s dance that would have warranted an army of exorcists in previous ages. Sarah Palin’s Facebook map was an evil totem that forced some guy to go on a shooting spree. The New York Times, the Washington Post, all three broadcast networks — particularly NBC whose senior foreign-affairs correspondent, Andrea Mitchell, devotes, by my rough reckoning, ten times as much air time to whining about Sarah Palin as she does about anything having to do with foreign affairs — flooded the zone with “Have you no shame” finger wagging. A memo went forth demanding that everyone at MSNBC get their dresses over their heads about the evil “tone” from the right. Media Matters went into overdrive working the interns 24/7 to “prove” that Republicans deliberately foment violence with their evil targets on their evil congressional maps.

Good analysis, if you’re a twit. The “tone” on BOTH SIDES of these pointless, interminable media debates about nothing is littered with aborted fetuses and Injun tears, all the time, every day. Why Jonah Goldberg noticed this “today” is anyone’s guess, but K-Lo’s apartment is always open if he needs a little comfort. [NRO]

  1. mormos

    Biden's statement actually sounds pretty accurate. The teaparty threatened to destroy the country through default unless we acceded to their political demands.

    That is pretty much the definition of terrorism.

    1. glamourdammerung

      Exactly. The teabaggers are crying about getting called on the very behavior they are gloating over doing.

      1. Jukesgrrl

        It never ceases to amaze me that these people can SELF-IDENTIFY as "pathetic victims of the left" and "undefeated" simultaneously.

    2. An_Outhouse

      threatening violence to achieve a political purpose. That sounds about like the scenario we just witnessed. Hey baggers, if the shoe fits, we'll shove it up your ass. If it doesn't immediately, we'll make it fit.

    3. Tommmcatt

      Making me imagine what might go on in Katherine Jean Lopez's apartment when she is alone there with Jonah Goldberg is MY definition of terrorism.

      1. BlueStateLibel

        Eh, the IRA begs to differ.

        But, come to think of it, the IRA set off a bomb in London's financial district in the '90s, causing huge damage, and there was a huge cost to repair the damage. "Only" one person was killed. The teatards were ready to inflict even greater damage.

        bin Laden himself stated that his goal was to destroy the U.S. economy, something the teatards were quite willing to do. I bet many of them still would too. You don't need just bombs to terrorize people. Just some thoughts, no one quote me on this.

          1. BerkeleyBear

            Forced movement, entailment, resettling of hostile people on your land. Some say brown, some say red, some say tan (or whatever shade Palestinians are considered) – but yeah, the Irish Catholics are pretty much England's irritating aborigines – with the Scots Irish a close second.

          2. snoopyfan2010

            Yes, all that except being bought and sold like animals. But that only applies to specific groups of "browns" so I guess you're right. Anyway, I was referring to the present not the past.

          3. BerkeleyBear

            Check what I said – not a comparison to slavery, but the way natives were treated all over the world.

            And if you think it was in the distant past, I've got some Ulstermen you should talk to. They had a nice run with the Celtic Tiger economy for a while, but that's now in the shitter, and they are back to exporting their youth abroad to look for work.

          4. snoopyfan2010

            I get your point. From now on my posts are going to stick to one theme…."Obama is a twinkie".

          5. Negropolis

            I think the Gypsies take that title. Everybody in Europe hates the gypsies. Hitler tried to wipe them out up there with the Jews.

        1. Not_So_Much

          Ooooh, making a cogent comparison between OBL and the HoveRound brigade would have their heads essploding. I intend to do this often over the coming days. (well, until I have to start selling my body parts to feed the kids and such and lose the ability to communicate…)

        2. HogeyeGrex

          Well, McConnell already stated the obvious, that next time the debt ceiling vote comes around they'll do the same thing again.

          This is what happens when you negotiate with terrorists.

          1. wonkettkinkster

            Yeah, but the whole "don't negotiate with terrorists" thing is based on the assumption you're going to loose a few hostages.

          1. mrpuma2u

            There was the Reagan from the first 4 years WITHOUT Alzheimers, and then the "who are you people and where am I?" Reagan in the last 4 when Nancy and her astrologer were actually running things. 'member?

          2. OneDollarJuana

            I remember. The first Reagan was the Reagan who, as governor of California, fucked it over royally, and it still hasn't recovered.

      1. Limeylizzie

        Er, she's paid to talk, she has a TeeVee show, so it would be boring if she didn't talk.

      1. Limeylizzie

        Just for the evening, it's Neville my beloved Ginger Tom, I wanted to show him to Pristine O'Dummy , as we were comparing felines yesterday.

        1. EggplantParm

          "as we were comparing felines yesterday"… there's something about this phrase…I just can't put my finger on it.

        1. PristineODummy

          You can ignore that baby-corn-chubby thingy. It's just about the size of K-Lo's clit.

  2. Mahousu

    demanding that everyone at MSNBC get their dresses over their heads

    So now we know what Jonah dreams about all day. Not that it's much of a surprise.

    1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      What does that even mean? Perhaps in J-Go's world, the greatest horror you can imagine is being exposed to lady bits?

      1. PristineODummy

        There was that ONE doofus who goes by the name of Ace of Spades who described ladybits as a combination of play-doh and bacon. Methinks the feller's never actually seen any up close and personal.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      When a person is naturally unfortunate looking, I think it's terrible when others, even the Wonkeratti, make fun of their appearance. But in this case, when a grown man CHOOSES to look like such a self-satisfied clown, and his absurd appearance is compounded by hateful thoughts and genuine stupidity, he deserves every nasty thing anyone can think to say about him. So p for you, MrFizzy.

      1. PristineODummy

        I'm good with that, Jukesgrrl. Teh plain is fine, teh ugly is even fine, but teh WILLFUL and DELIBERATE ugly? Bring forth the mockage.

      2. MrFizzy

        You know why I love Wonkette? Because of stuff like what you just said > I really do need to be a little more circumspect about ridiculing things that are outside of peoples' control, something that I do a wee bit too often. However, as you also rightly pointed out, this guy has put forth an effort to appear and act like an utter imbecile, and thus has offered himself up as a valid target. Wonk on!

  3. metamarcisf

    He has a point. The top headline at Redstate right now is:

    "Harry Reid Admits He’s a Terrorist Hijacker of FAA Funding"

    which is right above:

    "Jonah Goldberg is tired of the vicious hypocrisy of these people…"

    So thanks for pointing out the hypocrisy, Jonah the Whale.

    1. Fukui_sanYesOta

      Another headline on the front page:

      "Axis of Evil? NJ Government Unions Unite Against Chris Christie and Taxpayers"

  4. Fukui_sanYesOta

    I'm surprised he's not crying about Walnutz reading that NYT thing about Hobbits. He's normally got a baby corn-like chubby whenever anyone mentions Tolkein, mainly because he's a cheeto-dusted doofus.

    1. PristineODummy

      I am so stealing "baby-corn-like chubby." Not literally, of course, and not off Ghouldberg, but.

      1. Jukesgrrl

        Since childhood, I've been freaked out by baby corn. I consider it a creation of the devil. Never more so than now.

  5. smokefilleddoommate

    Goddamn bitch gets shot in the head, makes incredible progress in her recovery and gets fucking airtime for it?!! What about how Biden called the Pee Tardies terrorists? Huh? Did you hear about that?

      1. NorthStarSpanx

        And musn't we go back to when Rahm said in a closed door meeting that their ideas were retarded?

      2. NorthStarSpanx

        Or how about that old favorite about Rahm telling his own people behind closed doors that their ideas were retarded, and how that somehow was an insult to the pretend mother of a prop kid they named of his own syndrome?

    1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Remember, in Jonah's world, the only thing that women are good for are getting you a job or sopping up semen on their blue dress.

  6. genxr

    Wow. Giffords really should have been more sensitive to teabaggers' feelings. The nerve or her, having a speedy recovery and flaunting it everyone's face!

    1. Jukesgrrl

      What about the cruelty of her staying alive to take a job from a teabagger?! !11

      Governor Jan Brewer weeps. Had she been handed the opportunity to appoint Gabby's successor, I have no doubt the seat would have gone to Jesse Kelly, the man Rep. Giffords narrowly defeated in 2010. Kelly is Joe Miller with slightly more polite bodyguards.

  7. GOPCrusher

    And yet, America still asks, why hasn't Sarah Palin been arrested yet for conspiracy in the shooting of Gabby Giffords?

    1. PristineODummy

      Or the multiple threats and attempts against the President and unnumbered Democratic politicians. Anyone remember who the pusbag was who "joked" about drawing a sight right between Nancy Pelosi's big brown eyes?

    1. PristineODummy

      I get a feeling a LOT of assholes are going to be complaining to you about your associating them with Lardboy Doughpants up there.

  8. jus_wonderin

    Jonah Goldberg? By gum, I had that once. Let me tell you, it is fuckin' hard to get rid of. Flares up now and again. Mostly when I am on a trip to Jupiter. I guess I have to live with it.

    1. Callyson

      I don't know, but I'd bet the rent money that I've had pimples that were bigger…
      (Yes, the teen years were rough…)

    2. RavenRant

      Apparently you missed the comment of the day. It's "baby corn sized." But only with his mightiest erection.

  9. MissTaken

    Gawd you libruls! Always with the "oh poor Gabby got shot in the head", "oh, look at Gabby hugging people and smiling, how cool is that?", "oh look, Gabby can walk far enough on her own to vote while that Jonah Goldberg is such a fat fuck that he can't even hold his fupa up long enough to stick his shrunken dick into K-Lo anymore".

    Fucking librul bias!

      1. Doktor Zoom

        As usual when I go to Urban Dictionary, I learned a word I didn't know. And now I wish I still didn't know it.

        1. PristineODummy

          Everytime I come to Teh Wonkettez, I learn something I wish I could erase from my brain with a scrubbing brush and bleach.

    1. KenLayIsAlive

      "oh look, Gabby can walk far enough on her own to vote while that Jonah Goldberg is such a fat fuck that he can't even hold his fupa up long enough to stick his shrunken dick into K-Lo anymore"

      total win

      1. V572 Hair of Destiny

        Lucianne had to trade Monica Lewinsky's jism-stained blue dress, but it was worth it. A momma's got to take care of her boys.

    1. Limeylizzie

      Also good, on Yahoo News…

      Western press largely overlooks heroism of lesbian couple in Norway massacre

      1. Jukesgrrl

        I read that when I used my Yahoo E-mail — and hadn't heard about it from any other source. Blessings on them for their quick action and bravery.

    1. SexySmurf

      Much like the Jonas Brothers, Jonah Goldberg practices abstinence. Unlike the Jonas Brothers, it's not by choice.

      1. LetUsBray

        To paraphrase Marge Simpson, some people choose a life of celibacy, and some have celibacy thrust upon them. That pic makes it pretty obvious which category Goldberg belly-flops into.

    2. tessiee

      "these Jonas brothers have really let themselves go…. "

      Yeah, and how did all three of them merge?

  10. Callyson

    Tom Friedman — who knows a bit about Hezbollah — calls the tea partiers the “Hezbollah faction” of the GOP bent on taking the country on a “suicide mission.”
    Let's see, who has more credibility on terrorism…someone who has been reporting on the Middle East for decades…or a National Review blowhard?
    Well, go to Hell. All of you.
    Since this country is already well on its way there, thanks to the Tea Party, I take it you'll be emigrating soon? That's the best news I've heard in a while…

  11. PristineODummy

    "[…] K-Lo’s apartment is always open if he needs a little comfort." K-Lo doesn't deal in "little" doses of anything. Besides, between the two of them, one would need large quantities of absorbent towelage to mop up all the fat-generated flopsweat.

      1. PristineODummy

        Oh, like Jonah has a choice if he ever wants Li'l Jonah to have some happysexyfuntime.

        1. MissusBarry

          You're not the first commenter in this post to hit the quease-bottom, but you are the first to prompt me to post: SHAMWOW! (Also great for cleaning up after you bloody a bitch–win/win.)

          1. PristineODummy

            Hey — that'll come in REAL handy when I chain the rotting corpse of Lee Atwater to Karl Rove and beat them into a lardy, chunky bloody mess, as I had planned. Oops, did I hit the gag reflex again? Damn!

          1. Fukui_sanYesOta

            I actually had baby corn as part of my meal tonight and it turned my own stomach, so you're even.

  12. Beowoof

    You know some folks just look like assholes, and then they start talking and confirm it, Jonah that is you.

  13. Goonemeritus

    Like anyone would have to work overtime to find right wing examples of hate speech. Tune the radio to am spin the dial to any station and write down the first four sentences— done.

  14. SmutBoffin

    "…and if you watch closely*, you will see the wild wanker-pundit emerging from his burrow and flinging a noisome mixture of excrement, saliva, and MacBook fragments at the interloping libtardus mediatus. Truely, one of Nature's most revolting displays of unthinking, pointless aggression. The florid pundit now retreats to its nest, where it will masturbate voraciously for six more months."

    *To be read in the voice of Sir Dave.

    1. MissTaken

      "Truely, one of Nature's most revolting displays of unthinking, pointless aggression"

      Coincidentally, that's also the description of the K-Lo/J-Go sex tape

    2. user-of-owls

      You know, on second thought, maybe it would be a good idea to get rid of the Endangered Species Act. Or at least put in a clause that designates one particular species as invasive and ineligible for protection.

    3. PristineODummy

      Did you know that male hippos court the females by spraying them with, um, poop? For some reason, the thought of Jonah Goldberg … oh, never mind.

      1. tessiee

        If I'm remembering the article in "The Straight Dope" correctly, male hippos are able to spin their tails, thus creating a… poop copter… sort of phenomenon.

        1. PristineODummy

          That's right. They start the ol' poop shoot, so to speak, and twirl the tail for maximum spread.Animal sex. They really know how to get the kink on. Without guilt.

  15. Rotundo_

    Jonah, as someone who would be employed scrubbing shitter if it wasn't for your mom getting you a job I would think you would have the sense to just shut the fuck up about things like this, but once again, your true nature breaks free from its tethers and moorings and farts all over the place like a rapidly deflating balloon. Jonah, you were born an asshole, from the womb of an asshole, you will always be an asshole and you will forever be known as an asshole. Asshole is your legacy kid, and by god you have earned it again today. Oh, and FUCK YOU!

  16. Atlas Frooged

    Sounds like an editorial that a thoughtful media outlet, let's say the supposedly liberal NYTs, ought to be writing about Tea Brainers. Only he swapped out Repube names for Dem because for one day those ratfucks didn't get 100% of their way or the media attention. Everyday I see parallels between these sociopaths and how my 8 yo tries to get his way. I can only conclude that their parents really fucked them up badly and we're all paying for it because therapy is for pinkos.

  17. NowTheyTellMe

    In fairness, this does balance his attack on Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, FOX News et al., when they said liberals were Nazis. So, you know, he sees the big picture.

  18. weejee

    a bout of St. Vitus’s dance

    Is this douche still fighting the Chorean war? If so he just down a couple of jars of summer kim chee and the call his Dr. in the morning. Rand Paul, Marcus Bachmann, Mengle, Frankenstein, doesn't really matter.

    1. tessiee

      "a bout of St. Vitus’s dance

  19. MiniMencken

    If Barry actually has any balls, he'll veto any bill containing any earmarks for any state that is a net user of Federal funds. Or, if he were me, he'd invoke the RICO Act and seize the assets of everyone connected to the Republican Party. That would wipe out the Federal debt in about two minutes.

  20. mavenmaven

    One can understand his pique. After all, look how many Republicans were shot recently by leftists.
    oh, um…

    1. Doktor Zoom

      Hey, remember that Loughner was a leftist, because his Youtube profile said that one of his favorite books was the Communist Manifesto and he smoked pot.

      1. RavenRant

        First book on his list was "We the Living" by NRO's zombie pinup girl, Ayn Rand. Not one of those fine conservative journalists ever mentioned that fact.

        Or that two of the people shot that day had been getting right wing death threats. The judge had to have a federal security detail for months for having committed the crime of treating Mexicans like humans in his courtroom.

  21. JustPixelz

    At least nothing like that kind of revolting outpouring of sympathy toward the victim happend when Ronald Reagan was shot. In Goldberg's view, Gifford's big mistake was being shot as a Democrat.

  22. Come here a minute

    This is like when some Fox wingnut said the News of the World phone hacking story was being overhyped because some banks got hacked.

    Since Joe Biden said he felt terrorized, that's as bad as when Sarah felt accused of being a terrorist, only worse because he's a Democrat.

    1. PristineODummy

      Oh, are we playing PeteHoekstra? I'll play: Couldn't get tickets to Harry Potter. Now I know just how Jews felt under the Third Reich.

  23. MiniMencken

    This is just shame-based behavior caused by his feeling so bad about sinking the Titanic.

  24. mrpuma2u

    I guess this means he thinks that Gabby Gifford's reappearance in Congress was some kind of blood-wild-libel-herring to confuse gun loving Americans trying to defend their 2nd amendment rights whilst they are re-writing wikipedia entries to match what ever word pablum dribbled out of Sarah Palin's mouth. What a tool you are Jonah.

  25. Lucidamente1

    Well, Jonah did write a book called "Liberal Fascism," so coherent thought is not exactly his thing.

  26. elfgoldsackring

    Well, to be fair (why?), 'terrorist' does equate in his mind with 'filthy godless towelhead', which is pretty goshdarn offensive.

    1. genxr

      The greatest terror they know, is the thought that someone is out there somewhere not being a white christian.

  27. Texan_Bulldog

    "…to “prove” that Republicans deliberately foment violence with their evil targets on their evil congressional maps."

    I thought those were surveyor marks, Jonah. Oops!

    He's awfully hard on the Dems when it was a famous Dem (Clinton) who enabled him to get a stinking job — thanks to his mom's blabbermouth. What a useless, talentless blob.

    1. Fare la Volpe

      What is this family history of Mr. Goldberg? I was but a wee pup during the Clinton years, and didn't pay much attention to nepotism going on in the editorial sections of major periodicals.

      1. Texan_Bulldog

        Do the Google on Lucianne Goldberg. She used to get portrayed by John Goodman on SNL & had the nerve to get her feelings hurt, never minding the fact that she did great harm to this country.

        1. Fare la Volpe

          I'm reading about her on The Wiki, and it definitely sounds like she's descended to Newt Gingrich levels of "contemptible" in her lifetime.

          1. Texan_Bulldog

            Yes, her and Newt hit their zenith about the same time (no, I'm not talking about orgasm).

        2. RavenRant

          Actually, that was Linda Tripp, Goldberg's protege.

          But Lucianne has had quite a career. Taking bribes from the Nixon administration to plant false stories was but one highlight of her journalistic career.

          1. RavenRant

            No problem. Lucianne is far more despicable than Linda, though. I don't know how these people show their faces in public.

            She must be so proud of the grotesque lump she whelped, doncha think?

  28. BarackMyWorld

    …Andrea Mitchell, devotes, by my rough reckoning, ten times as much air time to whining about Sarah Palin as she does about anything having to do with foreign affairs…

    Jonah Goldberg's Rough Reckoning = More accurate than wikipedia, Dionne Warwick, and the Book of Revelations combined!

  29. SpurningBeer

    Kirsten, babydoll, are you serious about "BOTH SIDES" having a tone of hysteria "about nothing" interminably through the "debate"? Really?

    "False equivalency" is the conventional term for this. I think that's too gentle.

  30. V572 Hair of Destiny

    Today we are all aggrieved, Palinating right-wing columnists, trying to piggyback on Gabby Giffords' recovery.

  31. Tundra Grifter

    "St. Vitus’s dance?" I never got invited to the St. Vitus's Dance.

    But then I wasn't very popular in high school.

  32. Doktor Zoom

    Tom Tomorrow summed it all up after the Giffords shooting: "Barring some seismic realignment in this country, the gun control debate is all but settled — and your side won. The occasional horrific civilian massacre is just the price the rest of us have to pay."

    The same applies to the rhetoric about watering the Tree of Liberty with the blood of tyrants from time to time. So far, I haven't noticed may liberals acting on that one, either.

    1. Radiotherapy®

      Dag it Dok, Tom Tomorrow and Tom, the Dancing Bug were my sanity keepers before there was even Radiotherapy, that is to say pre-Wonkette. And the scary thing is how prescient those guys are.

  33. Gleem_McShineys

    I guess what he's saying is "All terrorists are hijackers, but not all hijackers are terrorists."

    Or maybe it is "Sometimes, when a Teabagger loves his nation so very very much, he has to hold it for ransom."

    Maybe "In order to make an omelette, you have to threaten the destruction of a few nations' economies"…?

    1. Swampgas_Man

      You may not be able to make an omelette w/out breaking eggs, but I've noticed you can break a helluva lot of eggs without making a decent omelette.

  34. Wilcoxyz

    When Dick Cheney shot his friend in the face, the gentleman promptly apologized to Cheney as soon as his face was healed enough to go in front of a camera.

    Has Gabby even sent Sarah a card?

    1. V572 Hair of Destiny

      Harry Whittington was given a choice: sign a release and apologize for ruining Dick's shot, or die slowly in a pool of his own blood.

  35. Doktor Zoom

    But you know, the violent rhetoric is pretty much equal on both sides. I mean, just look at all the hits you get if you to a Google search for "conservative hunting license" bumper stickers.

  36. fuflans

    to be fair, biden was being pretty mean.

    unless of course he was speaking metaphorically about a group that is incapable of compromise, threatens mahem, won't listen to reason and insists on getting 100% of their own way.

    then he was pretty fucking accurate.

  37. EatsBabyDingos

    New LSAT question:

    Jonah is to logic as

    A) Putting your head in his unflushed toilet after 2 for 1 McAnusburger night is to bobbing for apples.

    B) ehhh who cares. His "logic" needs to be flushed, too.

  38. arcadesproject

    Is there a high prize, like the Congressional Medal of Honor or the Nobel, for Nauseating Vulgarity? If so, may I nominate J-Gold?

    1. Jukesgrrl

      Yeah, I think it's that thing W. gave to George Tenet after he totally screwed up Iraq AND finished off the CIA (which was already pretty screwed up).

  39. Warpde

    Um! excuse me (hand up).
    Yeah, OK, here's my question.
    Who the hell is Jonah Goldberg and should I care?
    I really don't want to waste time getting up to speed on him if he is nothing more then another blithering idiot.

    Mommy gets him a job and he's not very good at it so mommy probably has to help him keep his job. He writes ridiculous ramblings for the far right. Does this make him a man-child?

    That’s odd. He was pretty funny in that Christine O'Donnell "I'm not a Witch" parody thingy. What happened?

    "Why Jonah Goldberg noticed this “today” is anyone’s guess, but K-Lo’s apartment is always open if he needs a little comfort."

    Goldberg and K-Lo. Thanks, it'll be days getting THAT image out of my head.

    This is the same fuckwad who said:

    the quintessential Liberal Fascist isn't an SS storm trooper; it is a female grade school teacher with an education degree from Brown or Swarthmore.

    Nothing inflammatory or absurd there.

    1. SpurningBeer

      Speaking as a liberal fascist [see "mute chatterbox"] who went to Brown, I have to say that there is, in fact, something inflammatory and absurd in his statement. Female Brown or Swarthmore graduates do not become elementary school teachers.

      Only male Brown or Swarthmore graduates do.

      1. mumbly_joe

        Hahahaha, so upfisted, as a liberal fascist of the Mid-Atlantic persuasion, over here.

        *also it's worth noting that our school's education department rather deliberately only offers minors and non-minor certifications (so as to oblige students to major in something like economics or physics or spanish, so that they knew the subject they planned to teach), so the phrase "an education degree from Swarthmore" is actually just about as cogent as "liberal fascist".

    Jonah's one of those people you just don't know whether they're being a total asshole to get attention or doing it out of conviction.

    1. 102415

      It's the only way he can earn any money. Hard times! Look, his brother can barely make it as a some time fish monger on the Upper Westside.

    1. finallyhappy

      The church never paid attention to the molester priests so I am not surprised if we find out they haven't paid attention to the bigots among them

    You know how you give the 3 year old a token gift so he doesn't feel left out and ruin the 5 year old's birthday party? Somewhere deep inside this grotesque land-whale is that 3 year old.

  48. bflrtsplk

    How does Madame Goldberg let her son walk around like that? He looks like he's got a snoot full of something in that photo.

  49. ttommyunger

    Well, if you think Jonah is a fetid cunt, you ought to see his mother. One whiff of her would knock a Buzzard off a gut-wagon.

      1. ttommyunger

        Lucianne is a real piece of work. If she fell down, they would have to slide her over a manhole to get her on her feet again.

        1. Radiotherapy®

          Good god, tt, you're right, that E. Coli stool didn't drop far from the herpetic rectum. I can see why she was friends with Linda Tripp. And so much for that pathetic talking point that we despise right wing womenz because they is hot.

  50. whiterabid

    And I thought Liberal Fascism was nothing more than verbal vomit. And now this meathead,

    Wait, it this Jonah Goldberg related to the other Jonah Goldberg? I really hate this internets stuff.

  51. RavenRant

    Sorry, Ms. KBJ, got to take you to task for the "both sides" bullshit. Both sides do NOT incite violence in an endless loop of hatred. Both sides do NOT express a yearning to secede from the union while simultaneously claiming that they are the only real patriots, and their opponents are traitors. Both sides do NOT muse about how mass murderers make 'really valid points' in their psychotic, racist, misogynistic manifestos.

    And every time the "both sides" bullshit is regurgitated, the blatant threats of violence on the right are normalized a little more.

  52. RavenRant

    Can you imagine how sick and soulless a person would have to be to be so resentful and outraged by sight of Gabby Giffords' recovery and her welcome by her colleagues?

    What did she do to get all that applause? All she is is a walking, talking miracle. Bitch.

  53. kateinmt

    Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ – I really, really, REALLY try not to let a person's appearance affect my opinion, however…I sometimes willingly dive right in. Like now. This man looks like the poster child for ugly and dumb. It makes me wonder if his bastardized version of facts and logic are a result of the torment he suffered as an ugly child or his ugliness is a result of his feeble, infected mind.

    1. MiniMencken

      This Fräulein Gellar should the Rassenpolitisches Amt director of be made! She has such a keen instinct for racial impurity spotting!

      1. mumbly_joe

        (Part 1)
        You know, this is the thing that actually gets me about Pammy and others. What exactly do they see as the endgame, of spurring people like Breviek into anti-Muslim genocide?

        Let's look briefly at Breviek's beliefs: he's a Christian supremacist white nationalist; his manifesto doesn't even include the normal "judeo-" hedging that American Chrstian supremacists do. He's obsessed with "Cultural Marxism", an antisemitic conspiracy theory and sister-libel to Jewish Bolshevism. He fetishizes the Crusades and Inquisition, neither of which were terribly kind to jews. And several of the groups on his contact list, that he sent his manifesto to, are explicitly Neo-Nazi groups- Combat 18, for example, takes its name from Hitler's initials.

        1. mumbly_joe

          (Part deux)
          Point being, there seems to be a belief that this detante born out of anti-muslim bigotry would actually hold, if the Anders Brevieks or Gert Wilderses of the world came into power. I've seen people go so far as to say that because Norway "hates Israel" (because they support Palestinian statehood) Breviek is a Norwegien John Brown. And the question is, can they really not divine that to people like Anders Breviek, Jews in Europe are every bit the "non-Christian" element in need of purging that Muslims are? I mean goodness, Pammy is more brown than even the brownest of those Norweigian kids. Does she seriously not see that?

    Would Keith Olbermann explode like a mouse subjected to the Ramone’s music in Rock and Roll High School? Something inside me hidden away shouts, “Hell yes they would!”

    It must be the severly repressed homosexual inside of you screaming to get out Jonah! Methinks you have fantasies about Dick Cheney giving you a "reach-around" while he's pounding you in the ass. You are a douche-faucet, who writes childish garbage, for a neo-Nazi rag, and a world class asshat.

    1. Fukui_sanYesOta

      Gosh, and repeatedly so. Hang on though, a serious political show with the Rev Al and Pat Buchanan? I had no idea such a thing existed.

    2. AJWjr.

      I have put each and every host on MSNBC on notice–whenever they trot out one of the network's paid right-wing contributors, I turn off the TV. Or worse, switch to CNN. Sadly, I've never watched more CNN in my entire life.

    3. PristineODummy

      That was great. The Rev. Al kicked Pat's ass nine ways to Sunday. "He's not "my boy," he's your President." Although the best line had to be after Boehner bragged about getting 98% of what he wanted and Rev. Al pointed out to Buchanan that he was getting the biggest cuts to the defense budget ever, a two-year moratorium on the debt fight, a conflict of interest between the business wing (tax cuts) and the redneck wing (military spending) guaranteed, and topped it off with, "I thought you guys didn't want any of that stuff." Priceless.

      1. Limeylizzie

        I absolutely love the Rev, he kicks ass and is so solid on Barry that I feel guilty that I have lost some of the faith.

        1. PristineODummy

          We've been through a lot lately with all the hysteria. I think everyone's faith in everything was a bit shaken. I've been questioning gravity myself, but not enough to test it.

          1. Limeylizzie

            It just makes me sad, I truly think he is a good man and all the left-wing railing at him for being a Republican is nuts, I was a Communist in University and pretty much a Socialist/Labour gal while in the UK and Barry was the first American politician that I felt came even close to having some of those values and I truly have begun to hate the American system of Government which seems designed to make Presidents fail or compromise their beliefs. The racism is a new and interesting quirk, also.

          2. PristineODummy

            I agree. Even cynical Matt Taibbi walked away from an interview thinking that he was a genuinely good man. And I don't expect him to do what I want because I know I'm far to the left of him, but I like his pragmatism and his unflagging efforts to make things better.Here. I got you something to make you feel a little better: <a href="http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/02/1002524/-Why-I-am-not-disillusioned-with-Barack-Obamahttp://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/02/1002524/… />I agree with pretty much everything the writer says, because I learned, after many years of working on political issues, that it's more important to achieve the goals than to look ideologically pure or brilliant or snarky. Sometimes that means you have to dine with the devil and agree to things you don't want or like. As long as it advances the goal.

          3. Radiotherapy®

            At least he didn't call the President a tar baby.
            You see, the "t" word is much more inflammatory than calling the president a racial slur. Joe Biden calls the T'baggers the "t" word and it's so offensive. To these fucknuts, the "t" word is so scary. Ooh, "terrorists". Like, "commies" in the 50's. Or "liberals" now. The lens at which they look at the world and the warped language they use is simply pathetic.

          4. PristineODummy

            Quite honestly, I'm sure the minute he's alone, or has a “safe” audience, he calls the President a LOT worse. Ever since the man stepped into that office the barrage of racism, hatred, threats of violence, nasty comments, attacks on his family, his sexuality, his personal life, his private business, even his dead mother! have come nonstop from the worst elements of the RWNJs. When I read people on freep saying that they want to rape his daughters in front of him before murdering them and his wife, I'm sickened. I can't imagine what this man has done, other than be born half-black, to invite such language. And the same people who make these terroristic threats — I can't imagine what else to call them — trot out the hypocritical false outrage when the VP purportedly calls them what they are. The height of chutzpah.

          5. widget2011

            You are indeed correct, however, I'm a southpaw that doesn't rail against him, I think Obama is a good man, trying to do the right thing after inheriting a train wreck that GWB left him with. On your other point, racism is indeed alive & well in the US, I see it every day at work, and not just from old coots either, sadly "Bumpkin America" still teaches their kids to be racist, it can also be closely identified with country music, which I Hate.

            Excuse my run-on sentences.

  55. lulzmonger

    With all due respect to "Super-Sized" Americans, this calls for drastic action!


  56. owhatever

    Palin put target on Gifford. Gabbi got shot. How hard is that for the rightwingnuts to understand?

    1. 102415

      They don't care. They like to shoot. Even the lamest loves to fantasize about it. Go over to Breitbart for five minutes. No don't it's too sick.

  57. tessiee

    Mr. Goldberg really should talk to his colorist about dyeing his hair a more flattering shade. That jet black color looks harsh and artificial; you really have to be Elvis or Keith Richards to pull it off.

  58. tessiee

    Oh, and I'd never heard of, much less seen, Jonah Goldberg until five minutes ago, but now?
    Fuck you, Jonah Goldberg.
    I love chubby nerds with glasses.
    Fully 75% of my gentleman admirers are chubby nerds with glasses.
    Fuck off, Jonah Goldberg. You just drove my girl boner into the ground.

  59. pbaseoul

    I want to thank all the commenters above for reaffirming my decision to never, ever align myself with the left. Almost 300 comments, and not a single one with a substantive point. A string of insults, juvenile name-calling, straw men, scurrilous attacks, and lame jokes. I have to go shower now, but again–thank you.

  60. Negropolis

    Ah, yes, this old meme: "Sarah Palin is the real victim of the Giffords shooting."

    Die, already.

    BTW, if the Republicans don't want to be called terrorists, stop acting like terrorists.

  61. timbo71351

    You know Jonah's body looks like it was molded out of Spam. I'm certain the moment he leaves the house, his wife starts screwing anything with a penis.

  62. franco_pinyon

    Please tell me that you guys Photoshopped a wig on that guy's picture and that is NOT how he is intentioanlly trying to look.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      It's intentional. But remember, his mother is the abominable-in-word-and-deed Lucianne Goldberg. He never stood a chance of being normal. Not that that should be used as an excuse for his hate-rants, though. It's one thing to be ugly in the face, it's another thing to be ugly in the heart.

  63. Billmatic

    imagine if this was Dick Cheney calling the Progressive Caucus (or whatever they’re called) a “bunch of terrorists” on the day Giffords returned to the Congress. Would the mainstream media notice or care?

    I thought that was their main talking point against liberals. Not so far as terrorists themselves, but unamerican terrorist sympathizers that want us to fail. And nobody cared, in fact the mainstream media would then turn that question to a Democrat, "In five seconds, Mr. Frank, are you a terrorist sympathizer that hates America and wants us to fail? What about sharia law? You like that too right?"

    These people have no shame.

  64. Quayle2012_KNOT

    "Liberal Fascism" is a declaration that Jonah is willing to divorce himself from morality, piss on academic integrity, and cause serious pain to people whose families were caught up in the Holocaust to advance his career. He has ceased to be amusing.

  65. HollidayB

    He and Flallin' Palin have the same hair dresser no? Have either one of them apologized to Gabby Giffords? The teabaggers ARE terrorists… they simply are.
