COLSON OUT!  9:03 pm April 21, 2012

We Won’t have Chuck Colson To Kick Around Anymore

by Erik Jay

Total crookWatergate warrior Chuck Colson died. He was 80 years old.

Colson was most famous for going above and beyond the law for disgraced President Richard “Dick” Nixon, thus becoming one of America’s first humiliated and imprisoned American heroes. (He served less than a year in prison for his role in “Watergate,” which was a political scandal famous for being the first of the next eleven thousand “gates” in American politics.) But underneath his hatred and strong signs of sociopathic behavior beat the heart of a good man, some idiots think.

Colson’s time in prison was well spent. Before even leaving the transport van to the pokey, the back door to his new career was blown open with a mighty thrust of Jesus. That’s how Prison Fellowship was erected in 1976. Later in life, as he cozied further up to Jesus, he started talking on “BreakPoint,” a radio show which aired on stations nationwide. In 2008, President Dubya awarded him the Presidential Citizens Medal for “his good heart and his compassionate efforts to renew a spirit of purpose in the lives of countless individuals” and also for being a white man and a Republican.

Colson was remembered by many today for his achievements in prison rotting and finding the lord.

David Frum, former special assistant to President George W. Bush and current Republican non grata, twitted that Colson made his “greatest impact when furthest from power.”

Great American racist Pat Buchanan, Nixon vixen, called Colson “a tremendously good friend of mine” and “a real example of redemption. I think his life is a model for people who got themselves into trouble.”

Rick Santorum, frothnacious loser to Willard, described Colson as “a humble man who learned from his own frailty to care for the ‘least of these,’ especially prisoners.”

Willard Romney, GOP calendar girl, offered his prayers to Colson’s kin and “all the people he touched.” (Willard and his prison jokes!)

“Chuck Colson embodied and made possible an immeasurable amount of good in the lives of the people, families and communities he served in bringing a message of faith and hope.”

You are with Jesus and Richard Nixon now, Colon Colson.

So Nixon was Jesus?

Maybe I read that wrong.

Whau? and…and I thought we were internet pals.

redarmyzombie April 21, 2012 at 10:22 pm

Well, how else are you gonna catapult the propaganda?

bumfug April 21, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Colson realized that politics might have fleeting power but thumping a bible to con the rubes was a long-term gig.

Reginald_Perrin April 21, 2012 at 9:14 pm

I was taught to say only good things about the dead….
Chuck Colson is dead, good!

rocktonsam April 21, 2012 at 9:17 pm

damn it, I never got the chance to kick him

MilwaukeeKent April 22, 2012 at 5:47 am

Nor I to sucker punch him, which in no way involves man-on-skull action, just fist-on-cheek action. He had a sign in his White House office, "If you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow".

Infrogmation April 22, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Dancing on the grave, at least, is some consolation.

Beowoof April 21, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Ah G. Gordon with his radio show and claim to fame of being a bad burglar. Shit the Hamburglar could have done a better job at the Watergate than that moron.

MilwaukeeKent April 22, 2012 at 5:52 am

Forget that, he'll still be biting the heads off live rats and climbing tall trees in thunderstorms when we're dead and buried. You can't kill a man born to choke on rat or fall out of a tree. It's Chinatown.

Fare la Volpe April 22, 2012 at 2:32 pm

G. Gord's busy fighting cyborgs in the future.

donner_froh April 21, 2012 at 9:25 pm

I was disappointed to find he was still alive.

boobookitteh April 21, 2012 at 9:26 pm

I… don't think he's with Jesus.

redarmyzombie April 21, 2012 at 10:28 pm

I think it's pretty safe to say he's down there with Brietbart right about now.

Beowoof April 21, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Yes they are in the Nixon Wing of hell.

Madam Killjoy April 22, 2012 at 1:39 am

Ask Biely. He keeps records.

Vecchiojohn April 22, 2012 at 10:14 am

You liberals are such meanies. I'm sure he's in one of heaven's finer gated communities, playing golf with Nixon and Pinochet.

SolitaireRose April 21, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Dead? I didn't even know he was sick!

nounverb911 April 21, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Does Satan have enough room down there?

imissopus April 21, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Sounds like he didn't suffer too terribly. Dammit.

In lieu of flowers, he family asks that donations NOT be made in his name to the Brookings Institute.

Barb April 21, 2012 at 9:31 pm

With any luck we won't have Sarah Palin to kick around anymore either. Time magazine released their "Top 100 Most Influential…" list and Mama Grizzly didn't make the list.

Bah, ha, ha! (takes a breath) Bah, ha, ha,!

Beowoof April 21, 2012 at 10:42 pm

After her contract is up with Fox I don't expect to see her much on the TV. Well she is on Fox which means I would never see her anyway. When she was on Today, the wife went around and made sure every TV in the house was on Current.

Barb April 21, 2012 at 11:20 pm

I like the way Mrs Beowoof thinks!

James Michael Curley April 22, 2012 at 5:05 pm

I'm wondering what the brief two week flirtation with whatever station shows Matt Lauer. Palin was heavily promoted as making a couple Tuesday Morning appearances. Did not seen either, did not want to. Then Matt Lauer was on vacation and no announcements of Palin. Does NMC seriously thing this will compete with Charlie Rose?

Turning tricks for Jesus. I hope he has found his place on his knees in heaven.

OC_Surf_Serf April 21, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Hmmm. A Baptism for a Charles Wendell Colson just appeared on Romney's schedule…

SteveMcCroskey April 21, 2012 at 9:42 pm

Hunter Thompson once suggested that Colson "should be tied by his testicles behind an Olds 88 and dragged down Pennsylvania Avenue."

Just throwing that out there…

Doktor StrangeZoom April 21, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Throw in a color guard and some horses, and you've got your funeral procession right there.

imissopus April 21, 2012 at 11:18 pm

It's no fun if Colson isn't alive for it. Well, less fun.

AlterNewt April 21, 2012 at 9:45 pm

"Mr. Colson died Saturday at 80. His death was confirmed by Jim Liske, chief executive of the Lansdowne, Va.-based Prison Fellowship Ministries that Mr. Colson founded. Liske said the preliminary cause of death was complications from brain surgery Mr. Colson had at the end of March. He underwent the surgery to remove a clot…"

His conscience must have finally awakened.

Boojum April 21, 2012 at 9:58 pm

That was what he had removed. A clotted conscience.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 21, 2012 at 9:46 pm

All the remaining Watergate conspirators are going to start kicking soon. My kid's gonna get a good education about this stuff.

EDIT: Actually, I was surprised to see how many of them have already gone to their reward. Damn, I'm old. Of the big names that everyone knows, we're down to Dean, Magruder, & Liddy. Of those three, Liddy seems most likely to live forever, since he obviously has a pact with Satan.

b[redact]opple April 22, 2012 at 12:07 am

Don't worry, we are working on it! Last year my aunt Martha almost accidentally beat Gordon Liddy to death with a Chrysler brochure at the Washington Auto Show. It was quite a scene. Does everyone know that Liddy is about 5 feet tall and completely senile?

Ann_ObeyMe_Money April 22, 2012 at 12:51 am

Really? Now sounds like a good time to put the boot in!

Biff April 21, 2012 at 9:48 pm

And not a single fuck etc.

Boojum April 21, 2012 at 9:59 pm

So, there's basically a dry eye or two in the room, ain't there?

Ann_ObeyMe_Money April 22, 2012 at 12:51 am

Yeah, out of both attendees.

proudgrampa April 21, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Goodbye, frying pan. Hello, fire.

el_donaldo April 21, 2012 at 10:04 pm

We do have him to kick around still – at least until the corpse falls apart.

SorosBot April 21, 2012 at 10:10 pm

Chuck, as a Watergate history buff, I'm glad your dead. Now of the Nixonian criminals, we only have Kissinger to kick around anymore (well and Dean, but he switched sides after they tried to put the blame in hum).

AlterNewt April 21, 2012 at 10:21 pm

G. Gordon will be so hurt when he reads your comment.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 21, 2012 at 10:35 pm

And remember, 'Head shots! Head shots!"

LibrulEleet April 21, 2012 at 10:11 pm

George McGovern gets the last laugh. He's outlived almost all the GOP clowns who screwed him in '72. (Knock on wood.)

pinkocommi April 21, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Funny how all these terrible people "find Jesus" when they go to prison. I've never been to prison myself, which must account for both my staunch atheism and my inherent value as a person.

finallyhappy April 22, 2012 at 8:25 am

For a white guy, it's either Jesus or the Aryan Brotherhood- or maybe that's the same thing

BlueStateLibel April 22, 2012 at 9:37 am

Sometimes I wonder if it's Jesus they're finding or someone else.

Barb April 21, 2012 at 11:21 pm

I think the idea is that her PAC will choose worthy people to support. What kind of dweeb would let her make decisions with their money like that?

Now Colson won't be able to run over his own grandmother to get Nixon re-elected. Maybe in heaven or hell or the collective consciousness, Chuck's granny can tell him how she felt about this assertion.

I'll say this about Colson: There's a fly in the house and I will not rest until I kill it.

Ann_ObeyMe_Money April 22, 2012 at 12:57 am

Right onto Andrew Breitbart's microdick.

horsedreamer_1 April 22, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Oddly, I am sure "voice of the DC zeitgeist" Bob Woodward is leading the charge to extol Colson.

Wile E. Quixote April 22, 2012 at 12:28 am

So, who do you think gave up the booty quicker once the cell door slammed shut? Colson or G. Gordon Liddy? My money is on Liddy, I think that his tough guy act is just a thin veneer and that he's a punk-ass bitch to the core.

Liddy, fer shure. He looks like the kind of guy who writes to Dan Savage's column with the monicker "200% Straight."

And let's not forget that the man opposed the creation of gay straight alliances in schools because he claimed it would lead to greater instances of prison rape.

Cuz ya know, rape intended to assert dominance over another person's body as a means of breaking their will to live is totally the same thing as two kids who love each other just trying to find a place to be where they won't have their heads bashed open against a locker.

Fuck this fucking fuck to the fucking depths of hell.

Thankfully I'm not alone in my astonishment at all the post-mortem kudos this criminal is getting.

valthemus April 22, 2012 at 7:31 pm

"Willard Romney… offered his prayers to Colson’s kin and 'all the people he touched.' (Willard and his prison jokes!)"

Is that why Colson was so anti-gay? His cell mate made him bottom when he wanted to top?

BZ1 April 22, 2012 at 11:04 pm

Leave it to Mittens, to make the most inane comment, the election cycle is gonna be fun.

anniegetyerfun April 23, 2012 at 12:30 am

David Frum's assessment was probably the most honest that you would get out of anyone left of center. I mean, that was hardly a compliment.

notreelyhelping April 23, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Hunter sliced and diced Colson so effectively back in the day, that there's really nothing more to offer. The Doctor pronounced him dead years ago. It just took the meat sack awhile to catch up.

I want to open that drawer in the hotel and pull out the Gideon bible and gaze out the window and circle the commandments as we see them being broken. I want to approach the hotel front desk and act all indignant when they don't recognize me just by my radiant glow and youthful freckles.

We are staying at THE Hotel (yes, that is what they call it) Remember how we watched an entire hour of Wolfgang Puck infomercials and swam in that huge tub together? I remember craving sliders and praying that neither one of us pulled a "Whitney Houston" in that tub.

The "Safety Dance" is playing on the TV. I have to use my arms now to make the letters now. S-A-F-E-T-Y……. The "D" in "dance" always chimps me.

Yep, Informercials and hot water are good times to be had. McD's for Breakfast and Prime steak for dinner, that's how we roll!
I'll just make sure I "double tuck" the black out shades in the morning.

The trials have worked fine Radio. Thanks for the advice! Of course, 5 miles out of Gallup, we might have issues, but that's just due to being in the middle of nowhere.

Radio, the tether is perfect, thanks! Jeff is going to drive and I will be using wifi to do what I do on the internet and pressing ham against the window in protest of Arizona and how miserable the people act there. If you see a zippy red sports car and a freckled ass that is pressed against the passenger side window, that would be me.

Honey, I eat breakfast and skip lunch. You skip breakfast and eat lunch. That's why you play on the casino floor and I am in tears at 10:30 A.M. and you have to take me to Starbucks for a scone to keep me from shivering like a Chihuahua, being hunted from Sarah Palin's helicopter.

Remember that first day we lived together and I made you an omelet and pancakes for breakfast and you fell asleep at your desk? Good times!

Yep, all I can do before noon is coffee. Of course, Vegas is the great equalizer, at noon no one knows what is breakfast and what is lunch.

I luz you Boo! Time for lights out!

"….at noon no one knows what is breakfast and what is lunch."

Jeffery, I know the difference.
