David Mamet: David Mamet Needs Guns Because Of Affirmative Action And Such

  always be cappin'
...eople want to be the neurotic near-virgin who smoked crack and walked around Bushwick without pants on.) Anyway, David Mamet at some point had a break with reality (psst, it’s when the black guy got elected President) and decided that he would be the Hollywood elite former Democrat who broke ties with the party after the iPad came out but is really incensed about Chappaquiddick and the New Deal. Now, David is super pissy about guns. After t...

Laurie David: Making Karl Rove Look Good Since 2007

 
It’s not that we don’t appreciate all of you nice people who keep sending us the Laurie David/Sheryl Crow-Karl Rove story, hours after we posted it. We do! It just seems like David and Crow might not have been the kind-hearted ingenues they suggested they were in their Huffington post. Byron York of National Review got his own report of the confrontation. Immediately after Dowd’s introduction, the witness says, David began ...

Where David Ignatius Goes, Trouble David Broder Follows

 
...se number of retired generals and Post columnists required to call for Donald Rumsfeld’s retirement before David Broder will explicitly agree. It’s a Rumsfeldapalooza on the Post op-ed page today! David Broder, Dean of the Washington Press Corps, has Rummy in his sights and — with the help of a few solid weeks of established conservative voices already expressing the sentiment for him, and hot on the heels of similarly RADICAL o...

David Brooks Pens Stirring Debate Statement For Imaginary Mitt Romney (Who Is Actually David Brooks)

  It's Fanfiction-tastic!
...roft’s secret treasure vault, if you know what we mean. So it turns out that plodding centrist boringpants David Brooks has written a fan fiction story of his very own! Only the Mary Sue in his story is not merely a character who gives Mitt Romney a winning strategy, it is a wholly fictional version of Mitt Romney himself, who says all the things that David Brooks thinks would win America over and elect a hypothetical centrist Republican. W...

David Gregory Asks Important Question About Whether or Not He Should Go to Jail

  dirty little fingers in everybody's pie
Oh good, David Gregory, Serious Journalist, is on the scene to ask the important questions re: the NSA metadata/PRISM/wiretapping/megadata scandal. Like: should Glenn Greenwald be subjected to criminal charges for helping Snowden tell all of us what our government is doing with our tax money, our infrastructure, and our private information? A fascinating question, especially from David Gregory, who plays a journalist on the Tee Vee: David...

David Kuo Stiffs Clear Channel, Declared American Hero

 
...y. That was my immediate impression of him after a few conversations. He even mentioned that he and Stevens knew David Gest and had hung out with him recently. Ok, we don’t know what’s “apparent” about any of that, but “gay porn” and “Lincoln Memorial” were just used within a half-dozen word of each other. Jennings’ full email is after the jump. What I have to say about David Kuo does not con...

Dave Weigel Tongue-Bathes Roger Ailes, Asks If He Was Gentle Enough

  anals of journamalism
...astes of life-sustaining resources spout off? The only people who pay attention are other conservatives and Dave Weigel, who you can almost hear roll his eyes at Ailes’ opening joke. But then, once past what Weigel called “the silly part,” Ailes unleashed such a stream of garbage for the rubes who have made him a rich man that a veteran reporter like Weigel should easily recognize it for being unmitigated, unadulterated, 100% pure ...

An Army of Davids Attacks Barry C. Lynn

 
...ed out into the real world, to attend an exciting event at the National Press Club. The event, “An Army of Davids or the Triumph of Goliath?”, was pitched as “a no-holds-barred debate” between these three giants: Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit himself, and author of the just-published An Army of Davids; Joe Trippi, former campaign manager for Howard Dean, and author of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised; and Barry C.

David Frum Was Super-High When He Wrote This Column On Smoking Drugs

  this is david frum's brain on drugs
...ow this because “most people” are too dumb to navigate the kinds of home loans and school loans that David Frum thinks we should have. The best decision, therefore, is to tell “most people” that marijuana is a “bad choice” for everyone (even though it may not be) because “most people” will be too stupid to understand nuance. May we also point out that David Frum supports eviscerating public school e...

Delaware Witch O’Donnell Casts Masturbation Spell On Values Voters

  in the madhouse
...such as Bill Bennett, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. We were pleasantly surprised to see smug liberal elitist David Weigel walking around being smug, and somehow we even managed to cross paths with a delightful Furry. The Furry really set the “mood,” but the overall theme of this conference was definitely “Islam and the Homosexual Agenda are gang-banging America so hard,” and also “November is our N-word.”...

...e say” or “both sides do it” interruption from the milquetoast moderator — in this case, David Gregory, who plays a Very Serious Journalist on the tee vee, even though he’s really always wanted to be a dancer. Sometimes, he awakens from his half-coma enough to journosplain who is and isn’t a JournalistTM, as defined by David Gregory. (It feels a tad superfluous, even malicious, to remind you once more than Davi...

David Brooks To Teach Next Generation Of Elites To Be ‘Humble,’ At Yale

  bobos in paradise lost
...an’t tell if this is supposed to be anthropology or religious studies or philosophy or all three, not that David Brooks is qualified to teach anybody anything about any of those things. It is particularly funny given the “humility” that David Brooks exudes when discussing himself and others like him. From his book, Bobos in Paradise, as quoted (and explicated by) the Exiled: “Bourgeois bohemians [BOBOs] are the new establi...

Oh Sure, David Plouffe, Whatever You Want, We Leave Our Weekend Plans Open Until We Hear From David Plouffe Anyway

  men!
Here is awkward, squinting David Plouffe standing in front of the White House “asking” (as if we have a choice!) all of us to host Obama Parties, in our homes, this weekend. Wow. Four days advance time is cutting it pretty close there, nerd. But that’s nothing to you, is it? You go to work all day, go to your fancy three-martini lunches, while we stay at home and take care of the children and pay the bills and cook food. You...

Kingmaker David Brooks Now Disgusted With Romney, Everybody Else

  the center cannot hold
Guys, it’s like you don’t even listen to David Brooks anymore! After trying to explain to you that America was ever so much more civilized when run by the Protestant Ascendancy, he now lays out a list of nine reasons (David Brooks is not a prisoner of your HuffPostian tyranny of “round numbers” for his listicles) why the 2012 election is the Dullest Campaign Ever. The saddest part of this patrician jeremiad is that mos...

Famous Teabag-Beat Reporter Dave Weigel Apologizing Again

  bottom feeders
...two years after the Politico pretended it was a Hot Story for six hours? Why not claim that actual reporter Dave Weigel is the Washington Post‘s “conservative blogger” and make up some dispute with “liberal bloggers” and then throw in mentions of teabaggers, the Drudge Report, and Michael Calderone. And put “scathing e-mails” in the hed. Will that do it? Uh, probably not. Weigel, who apparently spends ha...

Rand Paul Campaign Goin’ Nuts, Suddenly Terrified Of David Gregory

  passive-aggressive twitters
David Gregory is a professional cocktail-hour name-dropping titty child who only got into television so he could meet and dance with and suck up to famous people — mostly “dance with.” So this is a good move by Rand Paul, if he’s trying to bargain with David Gregory, who just wants the most famous person of the week on his teevee show and will probably end up allowing that person to write the entire show’s vanilla...

From the Chicago Tribune: The G-8 economic summit will be held at Camp David, not in Chicago as had been scheduled. The White House announced the change in the following statement: “In May, the United States looks forward to hosting the G-8 and NATO...
