You know, I was having a pretty good day - things going smoothly...pleasant and productive interaction with friends, family, coworkers and strangers...then I was reminded that motherfarkers like Ablow exist, are being paid to spew this shiat, and a significant number of stupid people who vote listen to these assclowns.

I'm still having a good day, but reading this shiat was like getting a cooler of ice-water poured on my head.

I'm so proud of the evil supergenius who is our President.

It's a shame he's not in office much, but he needs to keep tabs on his many island fortresses and oversee his millions of evil henchpersons

I know soccer's becoming more popular in the US, but at the end of the day I think the idea of a game that can end in a 0-0 tie cannot be fathomed by many Americans...

On the other hand, there was a recent article about how it's a tradition in Mexico to use the World Cup period to pass unpopular legislation while no one's watching...

Obama really is all things to all people.

I think the recess appointment of Mr. Peabody was a bit cocky, though.

"Henchpersons"?

Maybe "henchers" is a better gender-neutral term.

It's sad that rather just enjoying one of the better United States' World Cup Soccer Team and enjoying a little non-political patriotism, certain conservatives are trying to spin it into a partisan issue.

So if he wasn't publicly supporting team USA this guy would be on Fox News asking why the President isn't supporting team USA and that means he's a traitor.

Did you call out three of your friends and then make them pay $100 to a charity of your choice?

Then again, after the turd of a column Coulter unleashed today, this is only the second dumbest thing a right-winger has said about the World Cup.

It's better when Dubya takes credit for Iraq winning the Asian Cup.  This is just a distraction, though.

Sad but not shocking. I was waiting for the right to spin the World Cup as something to attack Obama over.
 
2014-06-26 09:10:58 PM  
In case anyone happens to want to give Keith Ablow the benefit of the doubt, to assume that he's not a raging fundamentalist who is merely what a conservative thinks a smart psychiatrist sounds like, observe this grand pronouncement on the 2012 elections: Newt Gingrich's serial philandering, his ability to con multiple women into marrying him even as he abandoned his current wives, merely proves that he has so much animal magnetism that women voters will give him a third term as president.

Obama to blame for airing GoT's fourth season to distract us from VA scandal.

Obama also to blame for making me wait for Season 5.

The closest we get is hockey where it can be 0-0 after OT and then be decided in a shootout (or multiple OTs until one side drops exhausted on the ice), but that is a Canadian born sport anyways.

I can only imagine that they are running out of words to string together in some desperate way to scare people further to the right. How many permutations and combinations exist at the 4th grade level word bank?

LOL. Faux News is upset that people aren't paying as much attention to their fake scandal narrative with the World Cup on.

Their fear mongering and lies are getting old and so is their audience.

Hopefully by the time the next World Cup gets here most of them will be dead and FOX itself will be reduced to having less credibility than a bat boy article in NOTW.

Obama is why George R.R. Martin is taking so long on the next book, too. Just watch, it'll be released when conservatives are outraged about something.

Best part: Fox Sports is broadcasting the next World Cup. I wonder if these types of articles will pop up on Fox News in 4 years?

//realize that there is little synergy with Fox News and Fox Sports, but I can't imagine that the bigwigs at Fox Sports are going to be happy if the news people pull this crap.

He's an Ivy Leaguer, just like Ann Coulter, George W. Bush, Bill O'Reilly, and Ted Cruz.

He's not, however, a Rhodes Scholar, like David Vitter or Bobby Jindal.

Every four years you can expect the soccer hater columns like clockwork, but leave it to the hacks at Fox News and Ann Coulter to put a partisan spin on it.

They're probably just pissed that ESPN and Univision are the ones carrying the tournament and their daytime ratings are falling in competition.
 
2014-06-27 04:09:33 AM  
I'd like to launch a network to counter Fox News.  It would be one number higher or lower on the cable guide, so you could find it easily.  And it would be called, That's just too farking Stupid.

Basically it would be me, sitting across a desk from a charming host, preferably with a British accent.  The host would politely restate whatever was said on Fox News, run some Fox News footage, and then ask me for my opinion on the subject.  And I would simply reply, "That's just too farking stupid."

I assume at least 85 percent of you will subscribe.

You know you're a farking tard when the panelists on Fox think your 0bama conspiracy is idiotic.

I think American hockey fans over a certain age can fathom it, there used to be ties in the NHL. Sometimes there are ties in the NFL, but sometimes the players are unaware that's possible when it happens.
