Professor Reynolds on the Weiner Case, and Its Parallel Scandals

by Little Miss Attila on June 4, 2011

Why we should laugh when the powerful trip over their own dicks:

I think there’s an important point in the comic value: The people who think they’re smart enough, and morally superior enough, to run everyone else’s lives are risible. They’re not smart enough to run their own lives competently, and they’re actually, overall, morally inferior — I mean, John Edwards, DSK, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barney Frank, Tax Cheat Tim Geithner, just go down the list — and mocking them is inherently valuable. They pursue power, and they exercise power, as much for deference as anything else. Deny them that, and make it painful for them whenever possible. That’s my take.

I just ask, “what would Anthony Weiner do?” Then I proceed accordingly.

UPDATE: Best Little Whorehouse in the Greater D.C. Area. My own recommendation for improving the political class is to bring back seasoned campaigners Burge and Goldstein.

I think he has no choice now. He should blame everything on his Staff.

Gerard, would you please pick up some Vagisil wipes next time you’re in Oregon? I don’t like to pay sales tax, and I hear I’m going to need a lot of them. Try to get the ph-balanced ones, there’s a dear.

Let’s not forget the hilarious antics of noted Republican Ted Bundy while we’re on the topic, Instacracker.

What were you saying there about John Wayne Gacy?

Or Jeffrey Dahmer. We know he wasn’t a Republican because it wasn’t headlined in the media…

Let’s face it, the biggest Republican laugh is Instacracker & Co. pissing away all of the Pajamas Media investor’s funds.

Sure. And the fact that Reynolds is a full professor.

The fact that he’s making plenty of money at teaching, publishing as a respected scholar, writing for magazines, cranking out books–and then picking up spare change from being the most successful one-man content aggregation site on the web–makes it especially hilarious. I’m sure you’re laughing, too, Ponce.

You mean Reynolds is a government employee, LMA.

Who on the side whines about government employees in right wing rags.

What a role model.

Instacracker & Co

I always wonder why racist labels are not called on unless they apply to the color-du-jour?

Though, following the lead of some rappers and gangstas of the melanin-enriched contingent, one is allowed to use racist labels against fellow members … so if ponce is just another peckerwood, then he can carry-on

Speak of the government employee wingnut hypocrite.

Cracker is a race, Lurleen?

Darleen Click June 4, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Cracker is a race?

just as much as “peckerwood”, “spic” and “spook”

Oh, and since it has gone over your tiny head, “race” is a biological myth.

I guess now we know why Lurleen had to settle for a government make-work job.

Science is hard!

If you really believe that there are different human “races” then you’ve earned your peckerwood status, poncey.

You’re making trouble for Ponce again. You know his mommy doesn’t let him watch PG-13 movies.

And “Crackers, Constitution and Country”… there are worse slogans to live by.

Don’t worry, Dick,

I’d never click on an anonymous link from Lurleen.

However, if she’d provide a precis, I’d be happy to read it.
