Ride 'Em In, Let 'Em Out, Cut 'Em Out, Ride 'Em In, Rawhide!

  • Rude makes a very compelling point about why it is not necessarily a good choice for me to pretty much ignore the Anns and Michelles of the world, the gist of his point being that my strategy is unsuccessful, and more to the point given the utter lack of impact of my personal strategy, leftish society's adoption of that strategy is unsuccessful. Rude is, of course, correct; but while Ann and Michelle are vile and counterproductive uses of carbon, I just can't seriously take them on any more. I'm too insignificant for it to be worth the blood pressure.
  • Speaking of Ann, Media Matters does a lovely job of wondering why Jay Leno spent so much effort stroking her clit on his show last night. And it appears that the ballyhooed Carlin-Coulter bout came to nothing; if the transcript is correct and complete, George just pretty much sat there and took her shit, at least while the microphones were on.
  • Sasha and others point us to Senator Santorum's sartorial elegance.
  • Wonkette gives us the video of Tucker Carlson interviewing Melody Damayo, better known to some of you, like Dweeze, as Mimi Miyagi; Ms. Damayo is both running for governor of Nevada and using her candidacy as a platform to look for a fuckbuddy. While Tucker remains a smug, ungobsmacked prick, the interview is a classic. For her part, Ms. Damayo seems a bit confused about which party she should belong to, but she seems to have been, at the least, well-briefed.
  • Speaking of Ana Marie Coxsucker, her Judas imitation in the wake of YearlyKos has certainly stirred up a great deal of resentment in the 'sphere, and righteous resentment it is, since the nasty bint seems to expect Time readers to ignore her writing roots as, essentially, a pornographer, while accepting her wannabe journalistic failures as worthy of Luce-quality propaganda. But Firedoglake gets the last word. It seems that Miss I-Know-What-Bloggers-Like lost her notebook at YK, and that's really a sad thing. Not.
  • Sadly, No! provides a brilliant extended psychoanalysis of fascist cocklover Jeff Goldstein, who's as good a target as any, since Malkin has grown so fucking feeble. TBogg, in the course of a perfectly fine savaging of the National Review, dubs Goldstein "The Derrida of Dick."
  • Wanker of the Year: Chuck Schumer. Thanks to the General for crystalizing it.

There. I think that's a little something for everyone. I surf so you have more time for porn.

That's more words than I've heard her say in years of watching movies.

"I'm too insignificant for it to be worth the blood pressure." - you may think yourself insignificant, but readers of your blog (such as myself) vote.

peace
Matt

Thanks, Matt, for the kind words and for reading. Through Minionses' sophisticated NSA-like surveillance and ego-gratification apparatus, I knew you were out there somewhere, and I'm glad you popped up to say hi. You are one of Minionses' very few regular readers I don't know from other online or real spaces. Please feel free to drop me an email sometime.

As for voting...uhm, perhaps you could please replicate yourself several hundred thousand times? At least one blue vote is about to flee your state for the relative safety of mine.

That's what kills me. I'm leaving a Red State with a Dem governor for a Blue State with a Repig governor. That? Is love.

Matt said...

Strangely, Landru, I think we DO know each other (or did in high school). Unless there's someone else who calls himself Landru living in the vaguely DC area. That said, I don't remember whether we liked each other :)

I'd be happy to drop you an email sometime, but I couldn't figure out how to do it...

Matt said...

a-HA! nevermind the bit about the email...

Drum major or sax player?

Matt said...

Me? Or Landru? I played low brass (baritone horn and tuba) in high scool...

Landru said...

No danger, bDr, we have established that Matt existed in the identical parallel universe in the Independent Cult of Fairfax. Oddly enough, his Landru had a goatee back then, but doesn't now.

And for your edification, Matt, bDr was a low woodwind. I was a trumpet. We visited your planet once, on a dare, but got exiled back to our own world.

More than one Landru in the world? I don't know if my mind can handle that.

Dweeze said...

Hey. More Mimi Miyagi!

Sasha said...

I just wanted to mention the fabulousness of that pic of Schumer. The General shoots and scores.

And does Ann have a shitload of that very same black dress? You know, the sleeveless trampy one that gets so short when she sits that you think you might be able to see the flies? Or does she just wear the same dress every day without cleaning it?

I'm glad that Matt is not the Murphy. I once had a run in with a drum major,
faultlessly catering.
