Tommy

"Dissent is the highest form of patriotism"

YOU asked.

Is throttle good or bad... bad I suppose, unless you like that sort of thing.

PS. I hat tipped Volokh for pointing out the Non-Jefferson quote.

Jim

Still, someone finally had Bush in a room with cameras running, forced to hear why a majority of Americans think this has gone too far. This took balls. Not funny balls, strong balls. My hat off, whatever you cons will say.

I hat tipped Volokh for pointing out the Non-Jefferson quote.

And, of course, Volokh linked to Steyn. :-)

Jim: I am not "conservative," just not a reflexive Bush-hater.

Malcontent

Dan, it's called "hyperbole." Don't make me go back and dig up all of those links again showing just how humorless you are.

...whatever you cons will say.

This statement, frankly disqualifies anything else you have to say, IMO. You either agree with me, or you are a "con".

Mindless and absurd.

Conservatives do the same thing to "libs" as well, and it is the kind of sophistry which places one on permanant ignore in my book.

Thanks for playing, Jim.

Tommy

Er, Mal - psssst - wrong thread.

Malcontent

NOW I know what happened.

You can't blame Mal for getting confused Tommy. Dan is so all over the place when he argues it's easy to lose track of him.

It's satire at its finest. It's a slap on the face for Bush and his hard-line supporters broadcast to the world. No wonder they run around mad for the last few days trying to twist it into a non-event to save face for their poor Baby Bush. No courage? LOL People are saving the serious condemnations for the impeachment hearings. Colbert 1, Bush-lickers -10.

What is amusing is that Colbert's performance has raised so much brou-ha-ha, first on the Web, then in the media. Who remembers the comedian's performance at this relatively obscure event from years past, or even talked or wrote about it in the week after?

From that standpoint, Colbert's performance was outstanding.

Craig Ranapia

So, while we're lining up to suck off Colbert what did everyone do to mark Press Freedom Day on the 3rd - or honour the 846 journalists who were arrested, tortured and killed during 2005 for doing their jobs? But I guess that would require looking outside the masturbatory narcissism of the American media-infotainment complex and the Dubya Ate My Baby crowd.

Or maybe Colbert's performance was just a flopped comedy routine.

Malcontent

Attention moonbats: Richard Cohen does not like George Bush. So it is possible that Colbert was just both unfunny and rude. His show is usually funny; most of his jokes at the WHCA, however, were just clunkers.

Ten years ago, a very similar thing happened when Don Imus breached tradition and decorum in order to slam Bill Clinton. It was pretty universally believed at the time that Imus was way out of line. There weren't right-wing people running around saying that the pro-Clinton press was trying to "spin" the thing, or that it was actually funny or somehow acceptable or that Imus had "balls" or was taking some sort of principled, "courageous" stand. It was tasteless and rude then, as now.

Some of you people on the Left make the term "reality-based community" a perfect oxymoron. But such is a day in the life of a rabid Bush-hater.

Chad

I only watched the first part of Colbert's "roasting" (didn't laugh enough to make me want to finish the thing), but my roommate, who is no fan of Bush, did watch it in its entirety, and even he said he was getting uncomfortable with Colbert's performance.

Still, someone finally had Bush in a room with cameras running, forced to hear why a majority of Americans think this has gone too far. This took balls. Not funny balls, strong balls. My hat off, whatever you cons will say.

Jim, it would've taken balls to do that had Colbert run the risk of being carted off to the gulag and hung for what he said. Getting up in front of a group of like minded peers to publicly say what they're all thinking isn't guts. It's sycophantic.

I agree. I think the Left needs a good reminder of what would have happened if Colbert, Cindy Sheehan, or everyone else in the moonbat universe tried their spiel in Ba'athist Iraq, Taliban Afghanistan, or current Iran or Syria.

AWESOME POINT ONE

"Cohen and his ilk are not journalists, they are courtiers, part of the administration’s entourage. This insulated media world, where intermarriage is common, where reporters “cover” the activities of their drinking buddies.... Cohen personifies this ignorant, cowardly milieu. He is the type that has made “pundit” into a dirty word."

I love that line of thinking. It's like telling Rosa Parks that she should've just gone to the back of the bus cause in other countries THEY WOULD HAVE BEHEAD HER!!!

Dear Mr. King,
Stop the civil rights movement cause things are much worse in other countries.
Signed,
The dumbass right-wing false dichotomy believing Americans.

Chad

Justin.... when will you and the rest of the left stop using the civil rights movement in comparison to everything else?

Yes, it sucks that the price of stamps keeps going up, but goddamn.... I don't feel like I'm being doused with fire hose everytime I send out a Christmas card.

You're comparing the Civil Rights movement in this country - and a truly brave woman by the standards you're trying to apply to Colbert - to a flop of comedy routine at a "chicken or fish?" schmooze fest? Nice.

Michigan-Matt

Justin, you crack us up, sister.

Stevie Colbert is the new Rosa Parks --Gotta love those radical Lefties who will stop at nothing to play a race card... whether it makes sense or not. LOL
