Roundup: Compassionate Conservatives Behaving Compassionately

Being Friday, about the time of the week Demon Princess reliably gets really tired of political blogging & railing against the machine, she's decided it's time for a new category for fun.

I'm calling it the GOP Jackass of the Week Awards.

Zombies who mindlessly feast on the flesh of the living is a good illustration for this category; besides the fact that Ann Coulter is aptly depicted here (in front of the car), as another liberal blogger has noted.

First up: Ann herself-- the soulless bitch who cynically goes off on those who have what she so seriously lacks. And that would be a soul, some (real) courage & a conscience. Ann apparently doesn't have the sense to refrain from biting the hand that feeds her, & all of her insane rightwing fruitcakes, or the decency to acknowledge the fact that 911 was the biggest boost to their political fortunes. So, a big Jackass Award to Ann for ridiculing the 911 widows as "The Witches of East Brunswick."

"I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much," Coulter writes in her book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," published on Tuesday, referring to four women who headed a campaign that resulted in the creation of the September 11 Commission that investigated the hijacked plane attacks.

"Coulter wrote that the women were millionaires as a result of compensation settlements and were 'reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis.'

"She criticized them for making a campaign advertisement for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry in 2004, and added: 'By the way, how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy.'

"Asked by Reuters why she made such personal comments, Coulter said by e-mail, 'I am tired of victims being used as billboards for untenable liberal political beliefs. A lot of Americans have been seething over the inanities of these professional victims for some time,' she added."

Second, Moron Cowboy himself, for his stupid frat-boy insensitivity in dissing a reporter publically for wearing what appeared to be sunglasses indoors. Turns out because of a macular degenerative disease. Oops. Although we note, George apparently had the wit to realize what a huge fuck-up it was later & apologized (*gasp*).

Only because it was public, mind you. Men like George do not apologize otherwise, I can assure you. Nothing like a truly unfeeling & insensitive man to dis someone & purposely make them feel "less" for medical conditions they can do nothing about. The height of Jackassia, in Demon Princess's estimation.

Hey, jackasses! Has it occurred to you the subjects of your taunts rather not have the problems that you get such a charge out of ridiculing them for? How shallow & stupid can you losers get?

I think you're wrong about naming Ann jackass of the week, I mean, you've got the right animal, jackasses are sexless right? But no she should be jackass of the year.

Paul, you have a point.

I WOULD think it'd be impossible for her possible to out-do herself EVER, after this, but she's a media whore whose appetite for attention & habit of spewing the hate-filled vitriol she thinks suffice as constructive conversation seems to be bottomless.

And there's an election coming up.

Maybe there's a bright side to it.
She & her ilk represent what's worst about the GOP: divisiveness, belligerent shouting matches filled with the lowest of low personal attacks on a pubescent level...come to think of it, maybe we need her (& Rush, & the rest of them) to turn it up a notch. They serve as sterling reminders of just what we get when we elect like-minded idiots & their puppet-masters into high office.

Certainly, by now, even the most obtuse Americans can't have missed the fact that we have some serious cleaning up to do & we need grownups to do it. We're facing the consequences of the GW years, of bankrupt financial, political, & definitely immoral policies.

So maybe, by reavealing themselves as the jackasses they are, they're doing all of us who still have unanesthized brains a favor..

I'm venting...

Your preaching to the choir..

I know, Dusty, & I'd like to claim that it is a principled move on my part--trying to whip everyone who agrees with me *the choir*--into the same sort of mindless-attack frenzy that the Republicons have shown themselves so proficient at. A deliberate kabuki-theatre counter-move, if you will.

However, I confess that it's just because it's so much fun to ridicule those who get such a charge of ridiculing the unfortunates. That, & the opportunity to toss their cynical electioneering campaign slogans back in their faces....

Forgive me, Dusty, for I have sinned :)
