Greta Van Susteren Asks Who’s Dumb, Fox News Viewers Say ‘You Are!’

Mush-mouthed Scientologist and forgotten Fox News anchor lady Greta Van Susteren is a petulant child who battles her own viewers on her parody blog, “Gretawire.” A viewer named Brian wrote in and said, “You have a mind like a seive [sic]. Your brain is empty.” Is there anyone who would argue with that kind of plain fact? Read more on Greta Van Susteren Asks Who’s Dumb, Fox News Viewers Say ‘You Are!’…

Wingnuts Who Watch ‘Colbert Report’ Don’t Know It’s Satire

Not to be prejudiced or anything, but a short tour around the Internets pretty easily proves that conservatives don’t “get” satire or parody. Why? The answer probably has something to do with “belief in simple absolutes” and “sex shame” and “childhood brain damage,” and research from 30 years ago showed dogmatic people tend to be both dumb and unable to comprehend satire. And that’s why wingnuts don’t understand that Stephen Colbert’s Comedy Central parody of Fox News is, in fact, a comedic parody.

Paul Krugman’s Angry Screed About Stimulus Haters

All the libtards who watched Paul Krugman go cross-eyed with frustration on This Week yesterday as he tried to explain very simple economic terms and concepts to Sam Donaldson and Carly Fiorina may get a kick out of his column this morning. Clearly Paul just wandered off the set and in a fit of squirmy, nerdish pique typed out this thing declaring that anyone who says dumb things about the stimulus package is a lying fraud.

THEY GOT WHAT NOW? Here’s a four-page Atlantic article about how the Web has ruined the brains of book readers and writers and now we can only deal with single-sentence blog posts. [You Won’t Ever Make It Past The First Page] Read more on …
 

“As a final note, years ago, when John Carroll was editor in Lexington, he refused to publish a series, Cheating Our Children, about the poor education in Kentucky until the writers got it down to grade level THREE. You can’t write respectable journalism at the third-grade level, can you?” [Daily Bellwether] Read more on …
 

“In short, university faculty do not resemble the general population on their political and religious views. The data show that university faculty are similar to other ‘elite’ groups of highly educated people in the society, i.e., more liberal than the norm, less religious, less likely to have voted for George W. Bush, etc.” [12 Angry Men] Read more on …
 

America Remembers Alberto

We should give Alberto Gonzales credit where credit is due: Nobody else could’ve made America look back at John Ashcroft’s tenure and say, “Well, he wasn’t so bad after all.” Anyway, now Gonzo is gone (or will be, next month, unless he lied about that, too) and the 3% of Americans who even knew who he was and can gather around the virtual fireside chat or whatever and make incoherent, inane comments on CNN’s political blog The state of our union is strong!

Pentagon Can’t Even Give Away Its Secret War Plans

It’s a good thing all the Iraq war plans are totally useless — otherwise our Determined Enemies might learn something from all the supposedly Top Secret documents just sitting on web servers that anybody can access. Read more on Pentagon Can’t Even Give Away Its Secret War Plans…
 

Liberal Literacy & Typing Bias Blamed For GOP Internet Failure

Republican candidates are flopping on the Interwebz this year, and GOP experts blame the Democrats for wrongly attracting people who can read, write and use a computer: One reason for the disparity between the parties, political insiders say, is that the top Republican candidates are not exciting voters the way the Democratic front-runners are. Another is that it takes a certain level of technical skill and understanding to be an online strategist, and Republicans admit that “the pool of talent in the Democrats’ side is much bigger than ours.” Worse yet, liberals have long spent most of their time sitting around talking about things rather than doing anything — an unfair advantage in the Online Era, when everybody just sits around on their collective ass typing comments on blogs.

Newsweek Shares Intimate Knowledge With U.S. Readers

Check the diaper — the ones without the dicks are girls. Oh, and what do the international readers get this week instead of a handy primer for new parents unaware of the whole boys/girls thing? Usual bunch of international news and culture and such, plus a cover story about how nice it is to be rich and take monthlong vacations — you know, the stuff of no interest to your average American mystified by anatomy, because his own dick has been hidden by the flaps of his stomach for 15 years.

TIME Joins Newsweek In Mocking America’s Idiocy

TIME magazine is cherished by seniors who can’t turn on the computer because they got a virus from the Earthlink modem in 1998 — in other words, “American voters.” But what if TIME was consciously trying to keep the elderly misinformed? Read the rest of this post, after the jump. Read more on TIME Joins Newsweek In Mocking America’s Idiocy…
 

Washington Bureaucrats: Dumb as a Box of Hair

Nothing says American labor unions are in permanent decline like this memo from the Tech Support Desk at the National Labor Relations Board. This helpful instruction sheet was attached to an e-mail that read, “Several NLRB employees have asked us to furnish instructions on how to logoff. Those instructions are attached.” Read more on Washington Bureaucrats: Dumb as a Box of Hair…
