The WTF? Files

From Political Wire:
In an interview with Time magazine, President Bush declared the war in Iraq a "catastrophic success."

Sen. John Edwards responds in the Washington Post: "I, like most Americans, have no idea what that means."

Bush is a "catastrophic success." He successfully created catastrophies everywhere his policies took him.

They could still elect him yet. Personally, I think there's a real good chance he'll get back in, using any means necessary. I got into an argument late Saturday/ early Sunday morn(about 01:30). We were both pissed but I remember it well. It's some kinda zombie-like affliction that affects the brains of (right wing) people, shutting them down. "I know I don't read nearly as much as you do, Ian, but you can't believe everything you read, you are really naive.... Thus, just like that, an absence of knowledge magically become superior knowledge. It's symptomatic of conservatives everywhere, I guess.

It's like my Kentucky grandmother used to say: "It's one thing to be stupid; it's another thing to be PROUD of it."

Too many Americans are actually proud of the things they don't know. There are thousands or examples of this, but one of the many politically relevant ones came to my attention during the Iraq War debates of Spring, 2003. Pro-Bush people were saying that Bush had "secret knowledge" that nobody else had and that we should all trust him.

Then, of course, it turns out that those of us on the left were right, that Bush is a dolt without any "secret knowledge," that there were no WMD, that Saddam was never a threat to us. And yet these rightwing idiots who were saying that Bush had "secret knowledge" were so damned PROUD that they didn't know what that "secret knowledge" was.

Bush is an idiot. His supporters are idiots. Bush knows nothing. His supporters know nothing. They are all very proud of this.

This pride in a lack of information is what Republicans call "leadership" and being an "Uhmurkin."

It's a funny quirk of some people. When confronted by direct evidence that contadicts the beliefs that they are emotionally committed to, and are comfortable with, because it helps them deal with the world, it just "bounces off" and makes no indentation in their armor of soothing delusions. They just dismiss it out of hand and think YOU have the problem. They are indifferent to logic and think in ready made phrases, slogans, and bromides. Still...ya gotta try.

You know, DP, I no longer have any intention of talking to rightwingers. I'm glad the country is this polarized, so that I don't have to talk to moronic assholes anymore. As you say, it's a waste of time talking to them anyway.

The anti-Bush people are a majority in the U.S., just as we were in 2000. Rightwing retardos are a minority. After this election, we should just herd all Republicans into big open-air corrals in the battleground states, leave these imbecils exposed to the elements, giving them nothing but a muddy pool of drinking water, a few Bibles to chew on, and plenty of guns.

Then we can come back four years later and if any of them are left alive, we can put them behind bars with the entire Bush Family--we'll just tell all of them that they're in the zoo and that that chimp in the corner is actually their hereditary ruler. That's what they seem to like.

But I'm done talking to Republicans. The time for discourse and understanding is over, and our only task now should be to destroy all of the institutions and policies that these empty-skulled fascists believe in so blindly, starting with bullshit hypocritical Christianity and ending with all 30 murderous Dow components.
