Raharu: Dimensio: I have observed that some "conservative" themed humour is an attempt to copy jokes originating either from "liberal" humourists or from nonpartisan sources, but with a failure to comprehend the actual source of the humour. I have observed this trend in other discussions. This may be a consequence of more traditional, "original" conservative-themed humour lacking actual subtlety and often being too blunt to be humourous.


I have found that there is no such thing as a funny conservative. The humor is always vile, and mean spirited.


Vile and mean-spirited humour can, under the right circumstances, be amusing. Conservative attempts at "humour", however, rarely if ever are, even if they are not inherently mean-spirited.

Let me get this right.

Benghazi: Obama is just a loser because he went to a fund raising, campaign event when Americans were in harm's way.
Sandy: Obama is just a loser because he is suspending campaign events when Americans are in harm's way.

Its almost like no matter what Obama does, Republican partisan hacks will say he did it wrong.

naughtyrev: If I remember correctly, there was a crisis 4 years ago in New York that led to the suspension of campaigning, and it led to a resounding Obama victory.


Yep---McCain suspended his campaign because he thought it would make him look good. He was sadly mistaken

At this point, the election is too close for it to hurt him and if this is managed effectively and competently (and it seems to be going that way) it's a nice reminder to people right before the election that Obama is good at being the adult in the room.
 
Immaterial though. This is what he has to do, campaign be damned.

hutchkc: I find it interesting that Rush thinks this is bad for Obama. If you were to politicize this I think it's great news for him. He gets to flex his commander in chief muscles at the last second for something that has captured the nations attention. He may not be hanging out in Ohio, but I would assume he is racking up points with voters. I personally see this as the worst thing that could happen to Romney. He can't get any face-time without looking insincere or for photo-ops.


Rush is an epic troll of epic proportions. Literally. He plays a foaming madman on the radio, but it is in his best interests if Obama wins.

I mean, those people chose to live in a place where this could happen. Look at it - all that flooding from just a category 1.

I'll be honest - I often find you annoying at best. However, given the idiotic "they decided to live in a flood plain!" nonsense that you had to endure during and after Katrina, I'm gonna give you a big ol' THIS!!! on this occasion.

gilgigamesh: You can tell I still use Wordperfect.

WordPerfect is the shiznit. I have no idea how anyone can get any writing done with MSWord, possibly the shiatiest piece of software ever.

4 years later and they're still pushing this BS. It's as if they went back to 2008 to see if they can reuse anything that'll get the blah man out of the Whitehouse.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Once again we have an instance where the derpiest of the derps are trying to project Bush's faults onto Obama, as if they feel that if only they can find an equivalent Obama match for every one of Bush's failures, they will finally...have success? Or something. I don't get it because I can't just flip a switch and make myself a schizoid asshole.

In any event, in this case they are trying to make this Obama's Katrina. Of course, the Katrina debacle was entirely due to Bush and Brownie sitting on their asses and not reacting quickly or thoroughly. Given that we already know that Obama reacted very quickly, and very thoroughly (based on statements from NJ governor and GOP blow-up mascot Chris Christie), the equivalency is non-existent.

Which surely just enrages the teahadists even more...


Exactly this. Obama's win destroys the entire foundation that the Republicans live by. He's a nonwhite Democratic president doing a great job in the face of Republican ignorance and lockstep. Not only that, he's doing this in the aftermath of the most destructive and ignorant Republican administration in living memory. Not only is there no way to really attack Obama without being called on their racism, they also are trying to find past to harken back to and find it populated by Republican failure: Nixon's corruption, Reagan's horrible financial policies, and both Bush wars on top of Dubya's horrific divisive politics and outright incompetence. And this is before the Democrats started cherrypicking fiscal conservatism for their own ends.

It is funny for the Republicans to admit how flawed Dubya was by constantly trying to compare it to Obama. They know he's a farkup and has doomed their party in the eyes of future voters. Right now they're just clawing onto a dream of America they helped destroy with their obnoxious politics. Even if it means enjoying the deaths of a few dozen people, just as long as their America has a chance of lasting just a few more years.

Being a Republican is just pathetic to anybody in today's world with a shred of dignity and self-worth.

I mean, those people chose to live in a place where this could happen. Look at it - all that flooding from just a category 1.

I have to say I'm very pleasantly and genuinely surprised we haven't yet seen an article from some derpmonger saying exactly this.


As a preface, nothing I am about to say should be construed as to imply that the mayors and governors of the places in the path of Sandy, or the president of the United States, have not done their duty to their people. It appears that every logical preparation was made, and we should be glad that this is winding down with as few casualties as there have been.

Before Sandy hit, someone who lived in a more hurricane-prone portion of the country expressed the opinion that this storm was being disproportionally hyped because it was New York that was at risk. At the time I thought that was unfair, that the northeast had such a higher density of people and property that even a milder hurricane could do more harm there. But considering that this hurricane has killed dozens of people, while gulf coast states get hurricanes that kill hundreds and sometimes thousands...yes, I now think that this hurricane is getting more attention than some deadlier ones, and the fact that it hit the hubs of several media organizations and financial empires may have something to do with that.

NYC should be grateful that a hurricane that killed 38 people can be called "NY's worst storm ever." Other cities have seen much worse.

Wallstreet is shut down, New York, one of the largest economies in the world is at a stand still, international travel is affected, and the people of the city can't get around because the farking subway system flooded. There have been fewer lives lost but the amount of property damage is going to be epic.

Remember: Obama "abandoning" his campaign to actually be presidential and deal with a crisis in a way befitting his office is going to make voters LESS LIKELY to vote for him because he's not "actively campaigning."

I'm not sure how the Republicans can be so happy about Sandy. It gives Obama an opportunity to BE President, help people and get's him some goodwill. In an election that Romney tries to make about the economy for the last week it's going to be about Obama's competent handling of a crisis.

Romney's giving out bread from a bus.

gilgigamesh: Nabb1: That was an abomination. A "Highlander 2"/"Godfather 3"-level cinematic hate crime. But, the story went that Russell was presented with two scripts and the studio would green light whichever one of the two he wanted. One was the sequel to "Escape from New York." The other was a sequel to "Big Trouble in Little China." I think all us dodged a huge bullet there, assuming that would have done to "Big Trouble in Little China" what "Escape from LA" did to its predecessor.

I sat my wife down to watch BTILC and introduced it, in my opinion, as the last movie that ever needed to be made, period. That Hollywood should have just shut down and gone dark afterward, since nothing would be able to top it, ever.

She.... thought I oversold it. A bit.


My wife absolutely hates it. I'm thinking about a divorce.

Not to look at things from a political perspective, but if doing so I actually see this crisis as helping Obama. Unless he royally screws it up ala Bush with Katrina, he'll be looking presidential for the next week, making decisions, speeches, and appearances while Romney will be making staged photo ops. I see this as a regular post-disaster American response: Pull together and support those leaders who are leading.

Hey, NRO. Some people realize that there are more important things happening right now, such as trying to prevent a repeat of Katrina's horrifying results. There is nothing "delicious" about this. If we, as a nation, choose to use these events as opportunities to keep spinning bullshiat political cheapshots rather than help our fellow man, than we're completely farked.
