Great_Milenko: /obscure?


Since he was mentioned by name 50 or so comments ago, not so obscure.

mittromneysdog: Anyway, so they may do by executive fiat -- I'm trying to read between the lines -- a national gun database. Now, why would we need a national gun database?


This guy goes apoplectic over the suggestion of a national gun database. But he has no objection whatsoever to Wayne LaPierre's proposal for a national registry for the mentally ill. That's right. Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.


...My brain just went straight to that moment in X-Men 1 where Senator Kelly starts reading off a list of mutants stupid enough to register.

I seriously wanted Jean Grey to talk over him and just go "Senator Kelly, you do realize those families can now sue you for putting them in danger thanks to you exposing that they're on a list that, presumably, is not located on the Fort Knox of computers, right?". Because I think that would probably lead to one of the most epic lawsuits ever. Especially if it involved minors.

You gotta admit, it would be all kinds of hilarious to see one of these guys out themselves as a furry.


Never happen.  Nobody has ever outed themselves as a furry on the internet.

"behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth"

If he's even bothering to try, it's got to be the most half-assed try in history. "Civility" and "Mark Levin" are mutually exclusive terms.

Thrag: You people just don't understand. The purpose of the 2nd amendment is to ensure the citizenry have the power to overthrow a tyrannical government. Which is why I hope conservative pundits like Mr. Levin and 2nd amendment lobbing organizations like the NRA will join my crusade to end the prohibition on citizens owning heavy arms like anti-tank missiles and SAMs. After all unless the populace has access to any and all military grade weaponry the true purpose of the 2nd amendment remains unfulfilled. It says the right to bear arms, not the right to bear only small arms.


Even if you could buy them legally, I doubt you'd see many Javelins showing up at the range. So calm down.

knbwhite: BMulligan: knbwhite: edmo: His highly articulate thoughts complete with detailed implementation schema for stopping the killing of 5 and 6-year olds is a much welcome solution to our national problem. He and his buddies will have this all solved soon.

Backyard pools kill too many children. No one needs a backyard pool. If we can just save one child from drowning, I would gladly give up my right to have a back yard pool.

He, everyone, we've got a "special" one here. Put away any sharp objects you're not actually using at the moment.

If you come up with the best plan you could to try to save innocent life and ensure good people can exercise their right to choose how to protect themselves and innocents will still die. We allow cars to go faster than the speed limit and innocents die. We allow bars to serve more than enough liquor to intoxicate a person and drunk driving deaths and abuse happens. If you were king of the world what would your policy be?

There are many smart and good-hearted people who don't share your views on controvesial issues. Deep down, they are as sure that their opinon is the right one as you.


You do realize that things like cars and alcohol are heavily regulated, right?

Not true.  He is clearly completely incapable of containing his stupidity.  He spews it all his waking hours.

Considering how easily the fury flows from these folks over every tiny thing, I would say that it's unlikely that they are "containing" their fury.
 
2013-01-12 02:52:01 PM

Target Builder: ColdFusion: That he can barely contain his fury is no surprise to anyone who has listened to Mark Levin's show.

He has this unusual tendency to start a sentence off at normal "inside speaking voice" and then gradually increase it as he gets angrier and more unhinged over time and he doesn't give a crap what anyone WHO DISAGREES WITH HIM SAYS! STUPID LIBERAL!

He does this to pander to the faux-tough guy demographic, and what makes it complete is that he has this nasally-whiny voice that never sells it to me.

He's giving a sermon, after every crescendo of sound and fury to make his audience panic about Obama he suddenly switches into a calming voice where he explains how he has a path that will save them from the impending doom. It's exactly like a preacher giving a fire and brimstone sermon and then explaining how Jesus offers a path to salvation if only they will take up the righteous path.


He genuinely reminds me of Hitler. (Granted, the less charismatic love child of Hitler and a duck, but still.) The way he builds his oratory until he's shouting, denouncing everything not wrapped in a flag, stoking fear and nationalism to a frenzy. Ugh.

I think many would agree without question that he's probably the biggest crybaby in all media. He's a blatant liar who does exactly as you say, only to stir up the stupid in the population. Everyone has the right to say what they want, but if lost his radio show, I wouldn't shed a tear.

He's a font of misplaced rage. Name your cliché; Mother held him too much or not enough, last picked at kickball, late night sneaky uncle, whatever. Now he's so angry, moments of levity actually cause him pain; gives him headaches. Happiness, for that gentleman, hurts.

His nickname for himself kills me, too. He actually refers to himself as "The Great One." It's part of his intro music, and he has all his guests call him that too. I know being a right wing radio jockey means that you have to constantly convey bravado and fellate yourself over your own wisdom and greatness, but it cracks me up whenever the self described "Great One" goes on a rant about how Obama is so arrogant and egomaniacal.

Right wing radio is so much funnier when you realize that it's all just projection. Just a bunch of insecure man-children pretending everything they hate about themselves is actually somebody else's problem.

The same reason Authoritarians love them so much. It takes away a peoples independence to travel when and where they want to go. It is a wonderful way to control a population.


I'm just trying to imagine what the economy of New York City would be like without the Metro-North, Long Island Railroad, and PATH trains. Meh, it probably wouldn't make much of a difference, and I'm sure the rest of the country probably wouldn't notice if something bad happened in New York City.

Wrong derp artist. I think you're thinking of this guy.

ecx.images-amazon.com

Bill Cunningham, host of "the Great American." He's even derpier and more obscure than Mark Levin, and he's the one who tells every caller that agrees with him "You are a great American." I tuned into his show once last year and he was still herping and derping about birth certificates.

People who don't herp and derp about birth certificates apparently are not great Americans.
