No One Cares About Candidates’ College Degrees, Wingnuts Upset Anyway Because It Is A Day

When your elitist liberal friend says he wants to get a college education.
Sweet merciful Yahweh, are we really going to have to spend the next year and a half debating the merits of a college education for presidential candidates? Apparently we are, if the recent hooting over Rand Paul and Scott Walker lacking bachelor’s degrees is any indication. Count us among the camp that thinks not having completed an undergraduate degree is irrelevant to one’s qualifications for the presidency. Our last president had degrees from two Ivy League schools, and he had the intellectual firepower of a mangled squirrel being grilled for supper on the engine block of a ’73 Matador.

Instapundit Glenn Reynolds Will Now Dumbsplain Why Barack Obama Is Like A Black Neville Chamberlain

If there is one thing for which we can always count on the Ole Perfesser, Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, it is his propensity for churning out columns of such rank stupidity and willful ignorance that we wonder if all his former students might have an easily winnable class action lawsuit against him for stealing all their tuition monies in exchange for whatever “education” he pretended to impart to them. Also he’s kind of a schmuck. So let us dive into whatever this tripe is that the screeching poo-flingers of the rightwing monkey house were passing around the Intertubes yesterday, and bang our heads against our desks in a concordant symphony, for freedom: Read more on Instapundit Glenn Reynolds Will Now Dumbsplain Why Barack Obama Is Like A Black Neville Chamberlain…

Instapundit Wants GOP To Be Hep And Groovy Like Now And Happening 30-Year-Old Flick ‘Footloose’

Glenn Reynolds, last seen in these pages wondering why bitches be fucking boys’ shit up, yo, has noticed that Barack Stalin Obama won the youth vote in the 2012 election by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. Luckily Glenn’s day job keeps him engaged with young people, so he is receptive to their concerns about the future and understands why they saw Obama as the candidate best suited to understand and advocate for them, and now Glenn can offer the GOP all sorts of nifty ideas about how to appeal to the 18-to-29 demographic. Or he could base his concern-trolling on a character in a movie that is older than every single member of that demographic. Whatever.

Glenn Reynolds Will Rescue The Lost Boys From The Tyranny Of MILF Island

Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, who splits his time between peddling survival equipment on his blog and stroking what can in no way be interpreted as a giant black phallus, is also a rather notable country lawyer with access to the USA Today. So what did Reynolds choose to publish this week in America’s preferred paper for cleaning up vomit in a hotel room? Was it another in-depth episode of “Glenn Reynolds: Body Language Detective?” No, instead, readers were treated to another episode in Glenn’s never ending series of “bitches be ruining everything” in the hopes that Glenn can finally avenge his loss to a girl in the 1969 election for class president of the 4th grade.

Rumors On The Internets: And I’m Too Sexy For This Song

Think Progress posts line from today’s NYT: “In the past two weeks, more Iraqi civilians have been killed than have died in Lebanon and Israel.” Commenter quotes Jeane Kirkpatrick from 1979: “Vietnam presumably taught us that the United States could not serve as the world’s policeman; it should also have taught us the dangers of trying to be the world’s midwife to democracy when the birth is scheduled to take place under conditions of guerrilla war.” [Think Progress] Read more on Rumors On The Internets: And I’m Too Sexy For This Song…

Rumors on the Internets: Blogs Are the New Hastily Scribbled Rally Posters

* Jay Tea urges L.A. protesters to refrain from threat-making; real Americans don’t take kindly to it. The blogger compares “immigration advocates” to Seine-side haute protesters, concluding that each group is making unreasonable demands on their respective “system[s].” [Wizbang] * Michelle Malkin characterizes attendants of the L.A. rally as “divisive militants” and reminds you that their sympathizers lurk in the mainstream. [Michelle Malkin] * Don Surber believes this is a problem for California — not Bush — to solve. Federal resources remain “better invested” in an undisclosed “elsewhere.” [Don Surber] * Glenn Reynolds considers the fates of political parties amidst the “backlash” of the protest march. [InstaPundit] * Mickey Kaus posits immigration, ripe for GOP finesse, as the hot button issue in the midterm elections. Here’s how Republican candidates can play it, with minimal party damage incurred. [Slate] Read more on Rumors on the Internets: Blogs Are the New Hastily Scribbled Rally Posters…
 

An Army of Davids Attacks Barry C. Lynn

Last night, the Wonkettes left their respective apartments and headed 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. Lynn, senior fellow at the New American Foundation, and author of End of the Line. (They are pictured above, from left to right: Lynn, Trippi, Reynolds, and moderator Nick Gillespie, editor-in-chief of Reason.) After the jump, our comprehensive coverage — plus more fantastic photos, taken by Wonkette shutterbug Liz Gorman, Intrepid Girl Reporter. Enjoy! Read more on An Army of Davids Attacks Barry C.

CPAC-ing Heat: Wonkette Gets Drunk With Right-Wingers

Last week, from Thursday, February 9, through Saturday, February 11, conservative political activists from around the country descended upon Washington for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). And the Wonkette Welcome Wagon was there to meet them! Okay, we kinda missed all of the panels, speeches, and events. We didn’t get to hear Ann Coulter rail against “ragheads,” and we missed the mob-scene book signings by blogebrities Glenn Reynolds and Michelle Malkin. Nor did we attend the remarks of self-professed ex-gay Alan Chambers, who said sodomy was like fast food: “It will kill you.” Uh, not if you don’t swallow! (Remember, boys and girls: as former President Clinton can tell you, the legal definition of sodomy encompasses a wide range of sexual acts. Black’s Law Dictionary defines sodomy as “oral or anal copulation between humans, or between humans and animals.” In other words, it’s not just assfucking!) We don’t look that drunk, do we? (Photo by the Boi From Troy, blogging at our too-cool-for-school sibling.) Sorry for that scholarly digression. Although we missed CPAC’s substantive presentations — if Ann Coulter mocking John Kerry as the other “dominant woman in American politics” qualifies as “substantive” — we did show up for the most important part: the drinking! A chronicle of our misadventures, after the jump. Read more on CPAC-ing Heat: Wonkette Gets Drunk With Right-Wingers…
