December 2012

I found this year-end list of Assholes, 2012 Edition, enormously entertaining and accurate.

Which is because I couldn’t give a shit about gay marriage, or who people love. Christ, it’s hard enough when you’re straight.

If there was ever anything conservatives were going to get stuffed up and down their redneck, bigoted, racist asses and throats, respectively, this is one.

Inspired by this post, a comment I really appreciated. Read below first, then the link, then the comment below again.

One extra note on the Republican-friendly nature of national journalists as a class: I think they’re currently very pissed off at Obama for getting reelected. Karl Rove wasn’t the only meltdown on election night. The newsy set were humiliated in front of the entire country when their two most cherished narrative sacred cows were slaughtered before their eyes. ‘America Is A Center-Right Nation’ and ‘The Election Is A Squeaker’ both died very public and obvious deaths. It’s not just the shame, but the narrative IS reality to them. They believed it, and they were shown that everything they knew was a lie. Since it can’t be their fault, they blame Obama!

Between the two, you have a pretty decent summation of my thoughts.
