You Bastard

Kottke always has great links. That's where I found #9 on the awesome list of the 50 most loathsome people in America for 2007. Guess what? It's you:

Charges: You believe in freedom of speech, until someone says something that offends you. You suddenly give a damn about border integrity, because the automated voice system at your pharmacy asked you to press 9 for Spanish. You cling to every scrap of bullshit you can find to support your ludicrous belief system, and reject all empirical evidence to the contrary. You know the difference between patriotism and nationalism -- it's nationalism when foreigners do it. You hate anyone who seems smarter than you. You care more about zygotes than actual people. You love to blame people for their misfortunes, even if it means screwing yourself over. . .

Exhibit A: You couldn't get enough Anna Nicole Smith coverage.

Sentence: A gradual decline into abject poverty as you continue to vote against your own self-interest. Death by an easily treated disorder that your health insurance doesn't cover. You deserve it, chump.


  1. I read this, too, and love it.

  2. Wow--I love this! It's so true! Depressing, but true.

  3. i can only be happy that it's not actually me. but i am continually surprised when people hook up with those who would deprive them of their very livelihoods because of some extraneous bullshit. it is maddening.

    it is infuriating here in redneckland bible belt land to meet working men ~ just regular joe working guys, good guys ~ who've fallen under the spell of the rethugs.

    i fear that there will be a white man backlash if hillary clinton wins the dem nomination. they'll couch it in all sorts of terms, but i fear that the bottom line is that she has a vagina. that's the big scary thing.

    in my view, those of us in possession of va-jay-jays couldn't do worse than what's already been done. just give us a democrat, any democrat, this ailing democracy will not survive another rethug administration.
