Subby is a trolling troll, also colon-omitting douche.

Okay, that sounds weird.

WTF is up with all of the Breitbart/Big Hollywood greenlights? That aside, I can't even figure out what it is they're angry about now.

(Pssst...Michael...here's a tip: you aren't supposed to end a sentence with a preposition.)

Hey, twatopotamus, how about scrolling down and sharing this advice with some of the resident Shakespeareans in the comment section?

Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

I read that twice, and I still don't have a farking clue what either one of those people are talking about.

Palinistic Vampirism controls the Zombies, and uses them as proxies to call for the massacre that the Vampires are too clever to ask for themselves. But they do want blood. There is no vegetarian vampire, and vampires are always and only liars. Werewolves, like any dog who steals from the table, may be liars, but unlike the Vampires, they don't want power. The Vampires can't be reasoned with.

What in the holy fark does that even mean?

The Zombies are the Teabagger movement. The Vampires are Fox News, Right Wing Radio, and Republicans who use thinly veiled encouragements of violence like "it's time for a revolution" or "Obama's not a real American where's the birth certificate?" or "Obama's gonna take your guns and lock you in a FEMA camp." More than that, they're every source conservative and non-conservative that hypes up doomsday fears and makes everyone out to be the enemy.

The werewolfs are people who get caught in (probably referring to sex/celebrity) scandals. The vampires then use these scandals to shift attention away from their own rhetoric and use the scandal to say "LOOK! Our society is crumbling! Where have our morals gone!?!?" or distract us from actual news. The werewolfs are wrong, but they cause less trouble than the vampires.

Also, whoever wrote this article is a troll, Slaughter House Five was an enjoyable book.

Same here. I kept reading to see when she would get to her point. Never found out what it was.

I decided to read some of her other posts. The common thread is she says a lot but really never says anything. A very bland writer.

I do wonder how much Tolkin earned for his screenplay. Perhaps he wrote it "pro bono" so he wouldn't commit the sin of being prosperous.

What the hell??? Tolkien wrote a screenplay from beyond the grave?

Blogs like this are a return to the roots of political reporting during our countries first years. No holds barred opinion pieces that vilify your opposition with little regard for the truth.
 
2009-12-23 07:00:36 PM  
That article almost made sense the way my dreams almost make sense. Is hollywood somehow responsible for teabaggers being depicted as less than fully rational human beings?

Anyway, Palin is more along the line of Las Plagas than a vampire. Vampires have normal human intelligence.

Not only that, but he's quite wrong on how to get an Oscar Nom. Here's my take on how to get one:

Option 1> Make a terribly horrible movie and wharrrrgarbl all over the news about something (preferably on CNN, so the people who nominate for Oscars will see you).

Option 2> Put one of the people involved in giving an Oscar nod in the movie. Doesn't matter the part.

Option 3> Make a horrible movie with some "feel-good" point to it, ala Day After Tomorrow.

Option 4> Bribe a bunch of critics. (This doesn't always work).

Option 5> Make a fantastic movie, and keep your piehole shut (This rarely works, if at all).

Of course there are more options... idea, let's have an option list made!

Pam Meister grew up in Reno, Nevada, where she was spent her winter weekends skiing at the local resorts and her summer weekends at either Lake Tahoe or Pyramid Lake. She moved to Connecticut as a teen, where she experienced a kind of culture shock: humid summers, no slot machines in the grocery stores, restrictive liquor laws, and, perhaps worst of all, the kids wore Izod instead of OP.

She graduated from Western Connecticut State University with a BA in communicationsand had grand plans to become a radio DJ and eventually a voice-over artist, but life - marriage and two children - has a way of changing the best laid plans.

Never very politically or culturally active, she considered herself somewhat of a liberal - despite having grown up in a conservative household - dabbling in vegetarianism and ecological awareness while getting all of her news from CNN. For her, as for so many, 9/11 served as a clarion call and she began investigating other sources of news for answers. Imagine her surprise to find that conservatives are not evil, but make a heck of a lot of sense. She has not looked back since.

As a way of getting involved, she turned to an earlier interest in writing, began her own blog, and finally gained the courage to begin submitting articles to other internet sites. She now serves as a writer and editor for FamilySecurityMatters.org, is a writer for Pajamas Media, and also occasionally contributes to American Thinker. Her topics range from national security issues to politics to the effect of the entertainment industry on American culture. Nothing riles her more than celebrities who don't realize how blessed they are to live in America.


These conservative outlets don't skimp on their writers, this lady is a literary genius.

I've never been so moved by such compelling and articulate writing. Pam brings so much factual information to her argument that it's a real testimony to her style as she is able to present all of that information in such a coherent and logical way.

.. ah, I keed. She sounds like a less intelligent Michelle Malkin wannabe who submits whiney jingoistic articles to a whiney blog.

I think she meant that line was from the POV of said Hollywood Elitists.

But I'm pretty sure she's never actually read Slaughterhouse Five, and just heard it was about an American POW during World War II, and therefore it must have Real American Values™ .

/If you haven't read it, nearly every American soldier in the book is either crazy, homicidal, incompetent, or a coward, especially in comparison to their fellow British POWs. It also heavily criticizes the Allied bombing of Dresden, a German city with almost no strategic value to the German war effort.
