Saddam - Clown of the Year

Do you think that when Saddam plotted to assassinate then President George H. W. Bush in April of 1993 that he had any idea what it would cost him? How could he have even imagined that 7 years later the son of his nemesis would be elected President and would bring the full force of the US Armed Services into direct action against him. Saddam lost his country, his palaces, his two son's (extinguishing his line) and now his life. God Bless America and God Bless George W. Bush who did not turn the other cheek in this instance, but hounded this beast down to a hole in the ground and then pulled him out and killed him. That's justice - Texas style - and Iran and Syria had best get with the program or they'll find themselves in the same spot.

Remember Veterans Day

The lunatics have taken over the asylum: Exhibit A

Looking on the bright side, the Democratic take over of the House (and maybe Senate) is going to provide a rich source of material for the KOTCB Blog. Why, just a few hours after the polls closed we already had this story about the son of WINNER Florida Senator Bill Nelson who soundly defeated plastic woman Katherine Harris. So how does Nelson's son celebrate his Dad's victory? "...they found Charles William Nelson, apparently drunk, sparring with a man and attempting to drag an unconscious woman to a hotel , according to the Herald. Charles Nelson tried to take the woman, Kimberly Baxter, away to a hotel when he heard that paramedics were on their way to help her. Police told Nelson to put Baxter down, the newspaper reported, but instead he dropped her on the ground and refused to leave. He shouted at and pushed one of the officers, according to the Herald." At least two more years of this stuff - it's going to be great!

“botched joke”

It's almost unfair... almost, but when you really think about it John Kerry has provided us all (and not by mistake) with a window on his psyche. There is no need for him to apologize because he's not sorry for what he said and there's nothing worse than a disingenuous apology. He doesn't like the US military and the people in the US military don't like him. I have yet to meet anyone in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines who has anything good to say about John Kerry - to a man they all consider him a turncoat who would gladly throw them overboard if it would advance his career. The fact of the matter is that no one who has an ounce of respect for our troops or our military institutions could have made the following statement. "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." What an asswipe.

Happy Halloween


Hell TV 24/7/365

"Comcast Corp. intends to cash in on the popularity of the horror genre with the Halloween-timed launch of its broadband and video-on-demand channel . The network will telecast nonstop frightful movie and video content..." Great. Just what we need - more horror. The explosion of internet broadcasting will bring us all kinds of goofy programing, but what sort of person signs up for this kind of premium channel?

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye...

Dixie Chicken

Do you trust the Dixie Chicks? I don't I mean if your back was against the wall and you were surrounded by hostile forces would you call on the Dixie Chicks for help? I wouldn't If you fell in love with them, built a house for them do you think they would run away with the guitar player one day? I do. Their blog is so stupid that I'm just going to pull a few sentences to illustrate my point. "The Chicks woke up in Chickago at 3 am to prepare for their interview with Oprah Winfrey, which will air today. A big deal, for sure. You will see a compelling hour of television during which the Dixie Chicks reveal how they went about adopting a baby from Malawi..." - that's right, they adopted a baby. "The red carpet event (the premiere of their movie) at the Regal Cinemas in Union Square included VIPs such as Lauren Bacall, Harvey Weinstein, Sandra Bernhard, and Princess Bitterpants." - Sounds like a very nice group of people. "The loud afterparty at Ul

Santa Claus is Dead

I was strolling through the mega book store over the weekend and came across The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins - A book that evangelizes the virtue of atheism. I've seen write ups on the book in both Wired (The Church of the Non-Believers) and the Sunday NYTimes Book Review (Beyond Belief) so I started skimming it's contents to get a closer look. I had not even made it through the introduction before Dawkins referenced John Lennon's song "Imagine" as a hymn for his un-religion. Imagine there's no Heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace You may say that I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood o

Fake Presidents Part II

The collectivists in the USA love to talk about something called The Reality Based Media that sees the world as it really is, as opposed to the false way that so many stupid voters perceive their unreality. One of my favorite ways the RBM try to help the rubes who are brainwashed by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News is by creating Fake Presidents - i.e. Reality Based Presidents that should exists, but don't. The best of these many fake Presidents so far has been the sanctimonious scold President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet played by Martin Sheen on West Wing . There's a new movie called the Death of a President where the current "real" President George Bush is assassinated and using special effects it looks really real. He's murdered by a black man angry that his son died senselessly in the Iraq theater of the War on Terror. But everyone in the US blames a Muslim man and he is scapegoated by the stupid people who don't live in Reality Based communities - like

Team America - Now more than ever.

Why the Democrats will not win back the House or Senate in 2006

JAMES TARANTO nails it in his Best of the Web Today . The Foley scandal is actually quite similar to the Monica Lewinsky scandal. In both cases, sexually immature middle-aged men used their positions of responsibility to pursue younger people, who were also sexually immature, but had a right to be on account of their youth. The difference is that the Republicans washed their hands of Foley as soon as they figured out what was going on, whereas the Democrats' attitude toward Clinton is--well, we'll let Missouri Senate candidate Claire McCaskill, in an interview with Tim Russert on "Meet the Press," explain: *** QUOTE *** Russert: You're having Bill Clinton come in to raise money for you. Do you think Bill Clinton was a great president? McCaskill: I do. I think--I have a lot of problems with some of his, his, his personal issues. I said at-- Russert: But do you-- McCaskill: I said at the time, "I think he's been a great leader, but I don't want my daugh

Family nexus explains mystery of Lenny Kravitz's fame

Reading US Weekly last night I learned that Al Roker and Lenny Kravitz are second cousins through Lenny's mom Roxie Roker (who also played Helen Willis on The Jeffersons ). This is an important clue to answering one of life's great mysteries - Why is Lenny Kravitz famous? We will continue to monitor US Weekly to find more answers to this incomprehensible puzzle.

Gay Pride

It seems incredible. How can a man like Mark Foley be elected to leadership positions of the Republican caucus? Especially when you learn that Denny Hastert was warned about his activities with young pages 3 YEARS AGO by Foley's long time aid Kirk Fordham. Even more amazing is the fact that his sexual advances on young male pages was common knowledge among the boys who work on the hill. In today's LA Times I found this quote from a former page. "Almost the first day I got there I was warned," said Mark Beck-Heyman, a San Diego native who served as a page in the House of Representatives in the summer of 1995. "It was no secret that Foley had a special interest in male pages," said Beck-Heyman, adding that Foley, who is now 52, on several occasions asked him out for ice cream. So now we know that not only the Republican Leadership, including the Speaker of the House, knew about Foley the Fag, but so did every page working on The Hill. But that's not all.

Turn over every rock

How can someone like this become chairman of the House caucus on missing and exploited children? It's not like these guys on The Hill don't know every weakness of their fellow members. It doesn't take much investigative power to know who's hitting on staff or pages. There is no doubt that Denny Hastert and many others (from both parties) knew that Foley was gay and hit on young pages. News travels fast in those circles. He is not alone and perhaps now we can have a full on witch hunt to find expose all the villains. How many are alcoholic? How many have made passes at under age pages? How many were molested when they were children?

Clinton Flips Out

"I pronounce it as certain that there was never yet a truly greatman that was not at the same time truly virtuous."-- Benjamin Franklin (The Busy-body, No. 3, 18 February 1728) Love him or hate him you have to admit, it's amazing that this guy was ever President of the United States.

Hugo the Horrible

Venezuelan President revealed to be college sophomore! This performance by Hugo Chavez at the United Nations was not just bad politics, it had a Nikita Khrushchyov cringe factor. Opening his comments with the suggestion that everyone should read Chomsky is one of the funniest things I've ever heard. "El Diablo" must be laughing his ass off at this clown, and I hope the US is planning an invasion of the Venezuelan oil fields right now - just pump the black gold out of the ground and not pay a dime for it - bring the price of gas in the US down to 50 cents a gallon. That would give Chavez a taste of true US hegemony.

A Grasping, Opportunistic, Dilettante

The 5th anniversary of 9/11 produced some truly stupid editorial comment from the news papers and TV programs. Bush's primetime address to the nation , coupled with the "docudrama" The Path to 9/11 triggered waves of Bushcosis among the smarter set. This mental disorder was perfectly illustrated in the NYTimes editorial page of the Sept. 12th paper* with an editorial entitled " President Bush's Reality " making the point that his "reality" is not real, another editorial entitled " The Fictional Path to 9/11 " that defended the Clinton years and chastised the filmmakers for making a movie that didn't fit the Time's understanding of reality, another editorial entitled " From Sacristy to Lockup " where the times laments the "ghostly legion of fallen priests" (I'm sure Pinch Sulzberger can hardly sleep at night over this), and finally an editorial endorsing candidates for the New York Dem. Primary where they s

A short fingered, no class, tyrant

I make no apology for being a Washington Redskins fan - As I have said before they are one of the 3 great teams in NFL history - the others being the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns - but something has to be done about the current ownership. There is a breed of Redskin fan who's devotion to the team knows no bounds and no limits. They are simple minded and totally focused on the need to win at any cost and have little understanding and even less appreciation for the traditions that make the Redskins great. Danny Snyder is such a fan. I give you three proof points. 1. Instituting the playing of lousy rock/rap music during time outs in the game (just like every other team) 2. Signing Deion Sanders to play for the Skins in 2000. 3. Inviting Tom Cruise to the home opener last Monday night. This is a short list of many transgressions that are impacting the spirit of this great institution.

She did it all for the In-N-Out

You can't blame Paris for wanting an In-N-Out Burger and 0.08 percent is not worthy of a DUI charge - you get almost that much alcohol in your morning orange juice. Two glasses of wine and you can't drive - come on. The concerned citizen's at RIDL (Responsibility In DUI Laws, Inc.) will tell you that Paris Hilton's first mistake was to submit to a sobriety field test. It doesn't matter if you've had 2 or 20 bottles of hooch, you won't be able to pass that field test. I understand that the Mothers Against Drunk Driving weren't too happy with Paris but that sort of brings me to the subject of this posting - Paris Hilton's Mom. That's right, I blame Kathy Hilton for this and so much else that's wrong with little Paris - starting with her god damn name. Six years ago I spoke with the admissions director of the private school where Paris Hilton received her education and asked point blank if the school had any influence on the way Paris misbeha

A National Obsession

JonBenet is dead - she was murdered. Her mother, Patsy, died from cancer this year. Her father John, who allowed the little 6 year old to whore herself on stage to the delight of psychotic bitches and nefarious pedophiles who congregate around child beauty pageants, walks the earth a free man. A "man" named Mark Karr claims that he killed the little girl so we hear about this case 24/7 (again) until the next big thing knocks it off the cable news stations. Anyone who is fed up with this crap or just likes good cinema should go see a movie titled " Little Miss Sunshine " and contemplate its themes. Those people who are obsessed with this case should be forced - yes, I mean physically grabbed and strapped down in a chair and Clockwork Orange forced - to watch this magnificent film. Alan Arkin must win some kind of award for best supporting actor - he was terrific, as was the entire cast.

Start Smoking

Today I received an email from G., a KOTCB regular reader with this dreadful news item. Smoking ban for `Tom & Jerry' in Britain "You've got to be kidding me", I thought "Perhaps G. has fabricated this hoax knowing it would get under my skin". But no, after some review via the internet I have learned that smoking in cartoons is now outlawed at Turner Broadcasting UK. "We have now pledged to view Boomerang's entire library of favorite cartoons and remove all other references that could be seen as glamorizing smoking in all our shows," said Cecilia Persson, vice president of programming, acquisitions and presentation for Boomerang's parent, Turner Broadcasting UK. Well, I'm going to start smoking again based on this article. How do you like that Ms. Persson? You are now responsible for adding one more smoker to the world and I encourage all KOTCB readers to "light up" in solidarity with Tom, Jerry and me. Of course this cart

Gunter GraSS

Check this out... ``I can't exactly identify the reasons'' for failing to disclose his Waffen SS membership earlier, Grass, 78, said in an interview broadcast late yesterday on Germany's ARD television network. ``It's always occupied me, always been present.'' You've got to laugh or cry or something when an aging socialist "admits" that he was a Nazi in his youth. But since the great mind of Gunter Grass can't "identify the reasons" for not coming clean about his past much earlier in his career, let me come up with one - this revelation shows that he's a weak and dishonest person and throws all of his idiotic politics and anti-Americanism into sharp relief. The National Socialist German Workers Party = Socialism - it's socialism with muscle and leftist like Gunter Grass (secretly) love it. They can't admit it because the Nazi's lost the war, so they rewrite history in books like "The Tin Drum" which cla

Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the fandango

Last week I was pulling my drivers license from my wallet as I approached airport security at LAX when I noticed the man just in front of me was Sen. John Kerry. He presented his ticket without any ID card (drivers license, US Senate Badge, whatever) to the security agent and tried to press on to the x-ray machines and metal detectors - but the guard did something wonderful, she stopped him and demanded that he show some form of ID. I believe this simple exchange speaks volumes about the strong character of our security teams at major airports and the weak character of the junior Senator from Massachusetts.

The World is Round

Tom Friedman is the most maddening columnist of all time - why, because exactly half the time he is totally on target with his analysis and the other half he is totally wrong. Yesterday I watched him on Meet the Press and he explained why he had called George Bush "Radioactive" in last weeks Op/Ed piece. After conceding that "some of it’s excessive, this dislike, this distaste, this hatred of George Bush" - he presses on to dig a little deeper. "But what’s it about? Whenever you see something that excessive, you know? And the way I explain it is this way: Foreigners love to make fun of Americans. Our naivete, our crazy thought that every problem has a solution, that silly American notion, that silly American optimism. But you know what, Tim? Deep down, the world really envies that American optimism and naivete. And the world needs that American optimism and naivete. And so when we go from a country that, historically, has always exported hope to a country that

Russ Yates is as crazy as his wife

Outside court, Rusty Yates told reporters, "It's a miracle." Andrea Yates murdered her children in cold blood and somehow that FACT has been rationalized into irrelevance. Her husband is her friend and everyone is pulling for her to get better, but you have to remember that she killed them one at a time. Each new victim seeing the pile of bodies grow in the bathroom where she took them to drown in the bathtub. No, life in the nut house is too good for her - she deserves punishment and those innocent children deserve justice. I Ring the Clown Bell for Rusty Yates who makes a mockery of compassion. For Andrea, eternal damnation.


Someone should really make a movie about this encounter . "George, whose family is Greek-Cypriot, has amassed a £70million fortune from sales of records including I Want Your Sex and Careless Whisper. He owns a £5million London town house and a £4million Beverly Hills mansion. Kirtland's dingy place just off Brighton seafront, was littered with rubbish, dirty crockery and filthy laundry. His only companion is a 20-year-old cat. " It's an amazing story, but what really jumps out is the 20 year old cat - what the hell? Also, the image of a nude Kirtland greeting the relentless news hounds is pretty funny.

In a departure from KOTCB tradition, I want to highlight an "intentionally" humorous cultural artifact: the emerging school of meta commentary on the soon to be released cinema classic, "Snakes on a Plane" Here is a amusing home video/ on this topic(bonus points for the Bono parody):

The Nancy Society we reside in must go!

Ironically, I am now the Public Enemy...All it takes is one car ride from Keswick to Charlottesville. Politcal Correctness finds it way to my car...What is the world coming to? This very weekend I was hosting a lady-friend from Switzerland (she is American, but hates it), another good friend of mine from Washington, DC (he is Brazilian-American, but a liberal), and his girlfriend, also from Washington, DC (She is American, but clearly hates herself). The weekend was going fine as we were watching this pussy FIFA Soccer Tournament. (World Cup my ass...It is more like the World Sippy Cup - Fruits). Of course when the frogs beat my Brazilian friend's boys he was devastated...So I suggested we all go swimming. We did and on our return in the car to Charlottesville (Where everyone is special...just ask Charlottesville people how special they are and they will tell you) I made a bigoted and raciest slur about the music we were listening to...How hard do you think it will be for all of yo

The Journal cancels it's subscription to the Times

The Traitors have finally been stung - by their peers. And in reading this article it looks like this one really hurt. I can only hope that it brings about the total collapse of the New York Times. Cutting to the chase - what drives the boys on 42nd Street mad is this section of the WSJ editorial: "The problem with the Times is that millions of Americans no longer believe that its editors would make those calculations in anything close to good faith. We certainly don't. On issue after issue, it has become clear that the Times believes the U.S. is not really at war, and in any case the Bush Administration lacks the legitimacy to wage it." How true! Count me among those millions. But the Times couldn't care less what I think - they proved that with the patronizing card they sent to me when I canceled my subscription (along with a promise to never buy the paper again) in the fall on 1994. But the fact that the WSJ just sent a public letter cancelling their subscription

Why the hell is this story important? I'm ringing load and clear for these clowns and the goofy shananigans of ABC and that crap show "the View". BOOOO, BOOOOO!!!

The beautiful game - for cream puffs

They call it "The Beautiful Game" and I'm second to none in my admiration for Soccer or what the rest of the world calls Football. I've played it, I've watched it and I've championed it - but the one aspect of the game that I really hate is the way pro soccer players fall down and fake injury. If you've been watching the FIFA World Cup games you've seen this unmanly behavior repeated on countless occasions in every game. For me, this craven approach to sport makes watching the Soccer games a disheartening and, at times, funny experience. I am convinced that this pusillanimous nancy boy gamesmanship is rightly perceived as un-American by the vast majority of US citizens. Based on this analysis I believe the US 0f A has nothing to worry about from Iran or France or any other enemy in the soccer playing world. While they're writhing on the football pitch impotent and shamelessly dramatic our athletes are bathing in Steroids , assaulting strippers and

Environmentalism's a Joke

When I saw this months Vanity Fair I just thought to myself, Greens Suck. I love the natural world and believe in protecting the environment, but does that mean I have to sign on with Pretty Woman, Clowny, a Kennedy kid and Albert Jr. (who by the way has proven himself certifiably insane over the past 6 years)? According to Vanity Fair and the Environmental movement the answer is yes. Forget it. I'll let the earth burn before I sign on to their socialist nanny state. Environmentalism is not an inclusive movement - it is exclusive and myopic. There is no future in it as the movement/religion is now practiced, just scolding the none believers and declarations that the end is near.

Persian Poofta's

Any theocratic political system like, say, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is sure to create a strange mix of cultish nihilism and dramatic exhibitionism - but Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems to be leading a nation of summer stock actors hell bent on building an A-Bomb. Will someone please cancel this show. The Theater of the Absurd!!!

Goodbye Mr. Wuhl

Tonight I had the great displeasure of watching Robert Wuhl's new program on HBO titled "Assume the Position" as in "take my idiotic propositions as fact." This is yet another reason to hate the smug pomposity of the HBO network - here a "comedian" edutains a group of NYU film students by teaching an alternate history of the USA (and at times the world). How alternative? How about having the entire classroom chant that "Star Fucking is as American as Apple Pie"? - no, I'm not kidding. You see, Mr. Wuhl believes that "pop culture is history" and that is the root of his problems - he must live a tormented life. Want more? Read the Interview if you are able. It is a sick, pathetic use of money and time - but what can you expect from a man who's wife is "to the left of Lenin". [That's a direct quote from Mr. Wuhl]

Sex Offenders Underground - Boohoo

Only the New York Times could publish a front page (above the fold) story about the plight of Child Sex Offenders in Iowa. According to the Times they are all packed in to seedy motels and trailer parks because the folks in Iowa don't want scumbags who sexually molest children living in family neighborhoods - how plebeian. I say - Only the New York Times - but I know that other fans of child molestation and sexual abuse might also feel the same disdain for the good people of Iowa. But the Times has cultivated and institutionalized a subversive alternative ethos that is now parody. This disposition was exemplified about 10 years ago, when Mayor Rudy Giuliani started to clean up (i.e push out the XXX rated peep show, pimps & whores, crack dealers and common criminals) that loitered around the NYTimes building on 42nd Street and Times Square in NYC and the Times editorialized AGAINST the gentrification of the area. That's right - I said against - the NYTimes argued that cleani

Russell Dana Feingold for President???

SOMETHING MUST BE SAID! Well actually... Marty Kaplan says it all on the Huffalump Post " If you wish Paul Wellstone or Bill Moyers were running, he's as close to them as they come. " But I say no one will ever cast a Presidential ballot for a man(?) named Dana. On Sunday R. Dana Feingold appeared on the ABC's This Week with Stephie Stephanopoulos and after suggesting that impeachment(?) of President Bush is justified he backed down to the following piece of idiocy. "A formal censure by Congress is an appropriate and responsible first step to assure the public that when the president thinks he can violate the law without consequences, Congress has the will to hold him accountable," Feingold said. To which the only proper response would have been (not that I would ever expect Stephie to say this - it is beyond his capacity of thought) - "Hold on you arrogant windbag - weren't you co-author of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2001 which is a cl


I Heart VP's

I know that next week the USA will celebrate and remember our Presidents on President's Day, but how about establishing a Vice President's Day. Maybe not a full day, maybe just a 2 hour lunch in honor of our VP's who are without doubt the most entertaining Pols in all of American history. All of this is well documented in Steve Tally's classic study Bland Ambition which remains the textbook of VP studies. In case you were wondering - here's the list of Pres/VP's . Just think of our two most recent VP's - Gore & Cheney and tell me you're not smiling. ***And I haven't even started on Dan Quale ***

Instant Replay

I have created this collage to express my thoughts on recent events - they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case they're right. Meditate on it for a few minutes.

Hamas vs. Fatah

Talk about Sudden Death Overtime! Usually the end of football season is a sad and lonely time for me - left with bleak winter weekends full of basketball games - relentless bouncing and screeching of sneakers on the hard court - I just stop watching TV Sports and read. BUT NOT THIS YEAR. I've got myself a civil war to watch for the next 3 or 4 months and I can't wait to see who wins - hopefully both sides can loose. Of course, if it were anywhere else in the world - Colombia or The Ivory Coast - we would not be treated to wall to wall coverage, but this is Palestine and that means 24/7. You got to love this from the AP: "...a dizzying power shift in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, overturning certitudes and highlighting the failure by Palestinian leaders, Israel and the international community to ease growing desperation in the Palestinian territories." How in the hell did the "international community" fail? By not making sure that Fatah stole the election,

Brokebutt Mountain

Well, the Oscar race is over. It's Brokeback Mountain in a walk. Except a best actress award for Felicity Huffman in TransAmerica (a woman playing a man who becomes a woman) and a best actor award for Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote (a homosexual man who acts like a woman). This projection is based on the voting of the Hollywood Foreign Press at the Golden Globe Awards most of whom I suppose are homosexuals. I look forward to next year when the awards shows can honor Brokeback Mountain 2: The Transspecies Odyssey. This is the touching story of the Brokeback Mountain boys who are conflicted over their homosexual love and start loving their sheep instead. One of the boys decides he wants to change his species and become a sheep so that he can fully express his passion. Baaaaaah. However the other Brokeback boy is uncomfortable with the idea of his boyfriend changing his species and so decides to have a butt baby sheep by artificial insemination using the latest in biotechnology. O

A Draw is better than Overtime

I hate Overtime! Sudden Death Overtime or any other kind of Overtime in Football is stupid. Last night the PSU vs FSU Orange Bowl game was a prime example of why I hate it. The game was a fantastic football game and BOTH team played their hearts out - it ended in a tie, as it should have. THERE ARE MANY TIMES IN LIFE WHEN THE GAME ENDS IN A TIE. But instead those playing and watching the game were subjected to this: NCAA Overtime Rules When a game goes to overtime, each team is given one possession from its opponent's twenty-five yard line. The leader after those possessions, if there is one, is declared the winner. If the teams remain tied, this continues, switching the order of possessions for each overtime, until one team leads the other at the end of the overtime. Extra points do not count from the 3rd overtime on, making it necessary for teams scoring touchdowns to attempt a two-point conversion. I turned off the game at the end of regulation - for me it will always have ende
