Rex is writing for the National Post?

At least now the unintelligible gibberish in the Post will be by design.

The problem Rex often faces is that he's so busy being erudite that he forgets to actually make sense. The result, as we see here, is often just an exotic word salad.

As someone who submits a lot of threads, I'm still not sure if I'm supposed to choose 'commie'/'fascist' based on the linked article, my headline/tag, or some combination of the two.

Al Gore has his own cable channel?

If you are going to write a theses paper on snark at 4am jacked on coffee and energy drinks at least try and make it amusing not a display of how you exited popular culture 30 years ago. Spock and Gilligan's Island smack talk? And you blow the "Little Buddy" reference? What no Maynard G. Krebs burns? How about Floyd the barber smack, that should really hit them where it counts.

LAAAAAAAAAME.

Gilligan is smarter.

Gore might be as fat as the skipper by now.

Jesus. And here I thought *I* had a horrible habit of using too many weasel words.

No matter what you think of Gore and Olbermann, just looking at this writer's chops: after reading this, you gotta admit that "maybe-perhaps-maybe-maybe-what-if" just plain sucks as a technique when you're trying to write satire.

Being rather simple minded, I was enjoying this piece and that dude's way with words. And what impressive words, many of which I've never heard before. He must be smart, I was thinking. Then he went and said this:

The great freeze-ups all over the United States, including spectacles like the snow and ice sliding off the Houston Superbowl arena, have some people just a little disaffected from the idea that the world is being pushed by a trace gas into tropical oblivion.

I laugh in your face, big-word man.
 
2011-02-14 05:35:51 PM
Meh, clearly Olbermann should seek out a government subsidized television network.

We got snow this winter so global warming is false. This is what Republicans actually believe!

Olbermann is to Gore as Lewinsky is to Clinton.

That's why Gore calls him Kieff Flufferman.

/ewww.

I think it's funny that the little made up gauge is actually looked at. Do you get get mad when the coin toss is heads when you think it should be tails?

Al Gore. Wasn't he they guy that wrote a book about global warming that was so bad the ice caps would melt and flood a third of America? He made a fortune from that and then bought a mansion on the coast of California. I remember him.

And when it doesn't snow it = global warming
When it only snows a little it = global warming
When it snows a lot it = global warming
Whatever the weather is it = global warming.

This is what Democrats actually believe! And unlike you're snark, it REALLY IS what the Dems believe.

I can't help but to hear Murphy's thick Newf accent whenever I read any of his stuff.

Kinda like whenever I read, "Good news everyone!" it sounds like Professor Farnsworth...

Cross Canada Checkup is probably the best political talk show on radio ANYWHERE. The callers are intelligent, and Rex questions them respectfully, yet still challenges their arguments.

Wrong as usual, you ignorant fark. Most of the world's climatologists know that global warming is happening and we're a major cause of it. They are the experts. You, on the other hand, have perhaps read a few articles, watched Fox News, and listened to Rush Limbaugh to form your views on global warming. With such a well grounded eduction in climate science, you think you know more than the people who study it for a living. Astonishing.

Um, I have to select "fascist"/"neutral"/"commie" when I submit a link. How could I not look at it?
