You actually had me wondering what would actually go into a conception speech.

Usually a lot of pleading followed by some promises you never intend to keep.

Ah yes, Ms. Rubin.

When confronted by the following screed from Rachel Abrams:

Then round up [Gilad Shalit's] captors, the slaughtering, death-worshiping, innocent-butchering, child-sacrificing savages who dip their hands in blood and use women-those who aren't strapping bombs to their own devils' spawn and sending them out to meet their seventy-two virgins by taking the lives of the school-bus-riding, heart-drawing, Transformer-doodling, homework-losing children of Others-and their offspring-those who haven't already been pimped out by their mothers to the murder god-as shields, hiding behind their burkas and cradles like the unmanned animals they are, and throw them not into your prisons, where they can bide until they're traded by the thousands for another child of Israel,  but into the sea, to float there, food for sharks, stargazers, and whatever other oceanic carnivores God has put there for the purpose.

...Most people would express some level of revulsion. But not our Jennifer. No, she re-tweeted it with her approval for the sentiments expressed therein.

Its always nice seeing a major newspaper keep people on its payroll who advocate for the killing of children.

If you could distill stupid, give it a meat suit and an animus (both major meanings) and an outlet for the insane drivel that falls out of its mouth, you could name that meat suit filled with idiocy and vital hatred Jennifer Rubin. I sometimes suspect that's exactly what happened.

Some say Jeff Bezos doesn't do enough philanthropic work. Hogwash. Keeping this special needs case employed is goodwill enough.

You know, Walker is really good at one thing, and that is scaring the base and raising money.  Fundraising has been his lifelong purpose, never having had a real job at a for profit company. He has spent most of his time as Wisconsin Governor out of state on fundraising trips.  If they want to get their base worked up about the "union thugs" and "welfare queens" and "the liberals" Walker would actually be a good choice; he loves his work.

I can. You cross over, taking out the Super Mutants in the trenches, and the wild dogs, maybe make a stop at the Museums to burn out the Lincoln quests, as well as getting the Lunar lander's radio dish for Three Dog, make a fast travel to drop those quests off, and then take on Talon Company and the Super Mutants rumbling around the Capitol building, before heading out to make short work of the mercs in the back, and then making a run for Rielly's Rangers' HQ for a nap, off-load some mapping data, and then maybe head off to the Arlington Library to give the Brotherhood scribes some Pre-war books.

You can, but the "fuzz" tends to get caught in your throat and tickle/itch for hours after. It's not as bad if you wash them really thoroughly before to get most of it off, but there still tends to be a few bits left. I suggest instead cutting it in half and eating with a spoon.

I remember my mother's greatest fear when GW Bush got elected was that he would name Tommy Thompson as Education Secretary because she thought the QEO would go national.

Pocket Ninja: If there is a more aggressively incompetent, unintellectual, just all-around-no-talent editorialist writing for a mainstream news outlet than Jennifer Rubin, I've never encountered that person. Her presence on the payroll should be an embarrassment, and the fact that it's apparently not is one of the reasons I never renewed my Post subscription after it ran out a year ago.


Her presence on the payroll IS an embarrassment.  So much so that outgoing WP Ombudsman Patrick Pexton sent the following in a public letter to Jeff Bezos.  Apparently, she's just not ENOUGH of an embarrassment to outweigh whatever number of wingnut readers she brings in.

"The Ugly
Jennifer Rubin. Have Fred Hiatt, your editorial page editor-who I like, admire, and respect-fire opinion blogger Jennifer Rubin. Not because she's conservative, but because she's just plain bad. She doesn't travel within a hundred miles of Post standards. She parrots and peddles every silly right-wing theory to come down the pike in transparent attempts to get Web hits. Her analysis of the conservative movement, which is a worthwhile and important beat that the Post should treat more seriously on its national pages, is shallow and predictable. Her columns, at best, are political pornography; they get a quick but sure rise out of the right, but you feel bad afterward.
And she is often wrong, and rarely acknowledges it. She was oh-so-wrong about Mitt Romney, week after week writing embarrassing flattery about his 2012 campaign, calling almost every move he made brilliant, and guaranteeing that he would trounce Barack Obama. When he lost, the next day she savaged him and his campaign with treachery, saying he was the worst candidate with the worst staff, ever. She was wrong about the Norway shootings being acts of al-Qaida. She was wrong about Chuck Hagel being an anti-Semite. And does she apologize? Nope.
Rubin was the No. 1 source of complaint mail about any single Post staffer while I was ombudsman, and I'm leaving out the organized email campaigns against her by leftie groups like Media Matters. Thinking conservatives didn't like her, thinking moderates didn't like her, government workers who knew her arguments to be unfair didn't like her. Dump her like a dull tome on the Amazon Bargain Books page."

Who cares? Chris Christie is also thinking about his Presidential cabinet. And all the Snack Packs it will contain.

Very scary picture.  I see what I'm missing by never playing video games.  I'm too heavily addicted to Internet news, esp. political news sites and don't have time for other computer past times...

I just don't see how Christie has a chance to get any consideration for Republican nomination.  He's changed his story a number of times about his knowledge of Bridgegate and it's just not plausible that he didn't have knowledge of closing down the bridge entrances if not actually calling for such. His bullying personality just won't fly in the South, Midwest, etc. And the right wing/tea party of the Republican party really doesn't like him.

Awesome. You write non-fiction as well as you....do other things.

I mean that as a compliment. And you are correct about Rubin. And knowing that if Christie and Walker were the only two in a room, and that Walker would be the -least- corrupt of the two....jeezus. As HST would've said, the mind reels. And to the commenter above who stated Rubin is openly advocating a Christie/Walker run.....I can't even....that's some damn good pudding she's eating.

Jewish neocon radical zealot gets position at major political publication due to clan status and connections and is un-fireable due to same.

This is not a repeat from every major political publication with a token neocon derp spewer for at least the last 20 years.

I typically read the Washington Post opinions and editorials daily.  Every now and then I venture down to the comments section to more or less find out that conservatives troll the liberal columns and liberals troll conservative columns.  Typically there is a fight in the comments section, usually about a topic completely different than the one being discussed.  The only time I ever see more or less complete agreement is where everyone points out Jennifer Rubin is terrible.  I mean I lean right, but geez louise is she terrible or what.  Honestly it's currently a terrible time for conservative columnists over all because the Republican Party is such a mess, but she's worse than Mark Thiessien.  (I generally stay clear of Mark Thisessien on the right and Jonathan Capehart on the left, but niether of them make me want to cave in my skull like Jennifer Rubin.)

And while I'm at it, conservative columnists, everyone needs to dial back the snark at least 2 levels.

And George Will, go back to $10 words and sentence structure.  You're breaking out the $20 stuff now and it's ridiculous.
