So Olberdouche is GONE - just like that. In a surprise announcement, he says "Ok folks, that's it, sayonara, nice knowin' ya'! His new job as The Worst Person in the World begins after a brief sabbatical. Who we're going to get to scream and yell at us to be civil after this, I don't know. But good riddance to bad rubbish. That's the good news.
The bad news is that they're moving some other douche up to his slot, leaving a slot open for Cenk effing Uygur. I don't know if you know the guy, but he's on "The Young Turks", a far-left youtube show that has often debated Lee Doren of Bureaucrash, a bona fide original grassroots Tea Partier from the early days who has made it pretty big (and more power to him, I say. His links are on my sidebar; DO check him out; he shreds bullshit with no profanity and no incivility and nothing but cold hard fact - great stuff.) Anyway, I had just been happening to look into this supposed controversy where Sarah Palin was being castigated for not screaming at Ann Coulter.
Ok from the beginning, then, for clarity. I see a post somewhere about Sarah Palin supposedly constantly calling her own son "My retarded baby" (source of this alleged info? Levi Johnston during his happy fun tour.) Which led me to a controversy wherein Ann Coulter posted a link on twitter to a video of "A retard interviewing a Republican". It turned out the "retard" was Cenk Uygur, who I happen to be familiar with. Well Cenk wrote an angry article for the Huffington Post wherein he demanded to know WHY Sarah Palin was not making a public statement condemning Coulter for using the word "retard". Now mind you, I don't care whether she does so or not - it's not Palin's job to police everything everyone says, and she's eaten enough shit sandwiches for ten grown men already, and no matter WHAT she does they're going to crucify her so if she says nothing I couldn't care less. But Cenk was convinced that if Palin didn't condemn Coulter it would forever make her a hypocrite. As if they don't already think she is. Duh.
So I'm wondering, well maybe it wasn't a very nice thing for Ann to say that - perhaps she should have chosen a different word, etc. etc. which led me to look up the interview in question. And THEN I got pissed. Because the interview she was referring to was one in which Cenk was interviewing the head of the GOProud, the Gay Republican group. Apparently CWA (Concerned Women for America) and the Family Research Council are boycotting CPAC (the biggest conservative convention) because the GOProud is going to be there for the second or third year in a row. Well, fuck them - they can boycott; I don't like the LaHayes or Dobson anyway. For YEARS Dobson's been a one-trick pony, and that trick is teh gays. I have my own personal opinions and my own personal religious beliefs, but I don't prefer to mix them up with government - government can stay out of my damned personal business so I'm sure it can stay out of gay people's business too. I don't see anything in the constitution about policing people's sex lives anyway. (Please don't say it; I know being gay is about more than sex; but it's the sex that they have a problem with and we all know it.) At any rate, being a Tea Partier, the more the merrier - so long as they want what I do - a constitutionally limited government, free markets, common law (gov't exists to protect people from direct harm to persons and property) and liberty, climb aboard. (For that matter, the first specifically black Tea Party meeting is taking place in Houston and won't that make lefty heads 'splodey? Haha!) And those Last Days books suck. They're poorly written, the theology blows, and all Bev LaHaye cares about is teh gays too. So if they don't think they want or need the help of people who have likeminded views on government or who are conservative just because they're gay, screw them.
So, back to the interview. Cenk is interviewing the head of GOProud, and the guy is very intelligent and articulate and I sure would have liked to hear more from him but Cenk just couldn't let up for a second. Which brings me back to where I got really pissed off. He starts right off attacking the guy, asking how he can POSSIBLY be a Republican. So the guy makes a distinction right away; he says, actually I'm a **conservative** Republican, emphasis on conservative. Because it's really not all about party, now, is it? We've had so many RINOs for so long that we kind of HAVE to make these distinctions now, don't we? Which this guy does. And Cenk starts challenging him asking how he can POSSIBLY align himself with conservatives when conservatives hate him. The guy TRIES to explain that since the formation of GOProud they have been welcomed to CPAC and that he feels more welcomed as a gay among conservatives than he does as a conservative around gay people. Which makes a lot of sense. Did Cenk let him even finish a thought? Hell no. Cenk continued to deride and harangue the guy, but even worse, he kept LAUGHING IN HIS FACE - repeatedly, loudly, rudely. This is a guest on his fucking SHOW - is that how you treat your guests? Really? THAT passes for journalism? Laughing in a guy's face over and over again and telling him what a moron he is? So I lost all interest in the fact that Coulter called him a retard (which is an offense to retarded people everywhere, who don't deserve to be compared to such an odious prick) and instead my ire was directed at this Uygur character who can't conduct himself professionally during a freaking interview. Now, my heart really goes out to this poor GOProud guy, because here he is trying to effect positive change in the country so we can get back to a constitutional government and maybe all get back to WORK and making some money instead of plunging into the misery index yet again, and not only do two prominent groups boycott a same-party event because of his group but the opposition laughs in his face. WTF? He didn't deserve that shit. No, the disgrace here was not Ann's use of the word "retard" but the SHAMEFUL treatment of a guest by Cenk Uygur. And now MSNBC is gonna put him on the 6 o'clock news? Oh yeah, GOOD move, assnuggets. I hope he gets a fuckton of negative publicity for his derision of this guest who did him no harm, and I hope your whole damn station goes under. Wasn't Olbermann bad enough? Didn't you learn from him? Apparently not. Well, ok, so here's the video - you know the drill; it's probably cut off so the link is HEREand if it isn't cut off, here's the embed:
Ok, Cenk - I'll say it myself. You're not a retard. You're a fucking ASSHOLE. And if Ann Coulter was the swearing type that's what she would have called you anyway. How DARE you jump on Palin - PALIN, not even COULTER - when YOU are the disgrace? How dare you?? You colossal prick. And you know what? I hope I never see you on the streets, but your guest? Can come to my house for dinner any day of the week. How do ya' like them apples, jerkoff?
