Black Friday Posting Flood - Just Trying to Keep My Head Above Water
YOU ARE VISITING THE OLD MALKIN(S)WATCH. THAT'S FANTASTIC. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW MALKIN(S)WATCH WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE. Whew, Malkin had a lot of stuff pent-up over that pesky turkey day, eh? Quick thoughts:
- Choose the word that best completes the sentence: Blaming "government schools" for using anti-government teaching examples shows a (surfeit,lack) of irony.
Reason number 95,385 to keep your kids out of government schools:Yes, it certainly would.
"I wish Bush would be (coherent, eschewed) for once during a speech, but there are theories that his everyday diction charms the below-average mind, hence insuring (sic) him Republican votes," said one question on a quiz written by English and social studies teacher Bret Chenkin...
Another example said, "It is frightening the way the extreme right has (balled, arrogated) aspects of the Constitution and warped them for their own agenda." Arrogated would be the proper word there.
Meanwhile, here's what the "Iraqi resistance," so adored by the anti-war Left, was up to yesterday...All right, two thoughts, leaving aside the unprintable ones: 1) Someone should probably explain to Malkin that linking to a google search which brings up a whole bunch of other right-wing bloggers pontificating on something (without evidence) is not evidence, either; 2) You should probably have a talk with some of your fellow righties.
- I can't take another year of hearing about the war against Christmas. I just can't. *collapses, sobbing*
Okay, I'm much better. But seriously: Nothing ruins my Christmas faster than a bunch of overprivileged Christians (an appellation which describes me to a T, btw) complaining about how the left is ruining Christmas. No, what's ruining Christmas is you.
What a terrible life that must be, to be congenitally unable to enjoy supposedly the happiest religious holiday of the year; to be forced by temperament to sniffle and snarl about how the majority of the majority just can't catch a break.
I, for one, don't depend on stores, cities, or the US Motherf'in Postal Service to validate my beliefs or the way I spend time with my family.
