Bad Dialogue... But It's A Start

  • Someone named Rachel Mills weighs in on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on her weblog. The comments after the post are what you should be checking out there. About fifteen responses in it turns into a crash course on the underlying tensions in the region so that hopefully the assumed libertarian-minded Ms. Mills doesn't resort to Fox News cliches in future posts on the subject. Maybe the next time she feels the need to write about how Allah took an "advanced civilization at the time of Muhammed to a complete and utter standstill" she would be wise to remember our President's stance on stem cell research, womens' reproductive rights, same-sex marriages, "intelligent design", and his own presumed hotline to God (ten paragraphs in).

  • Must be a slow news month: Conservative "pundit"- a term used loosely- Debbie Schulssel apparently waited until Peter Jennings was unable to defend himself (read: dead from lung cancer) so that she could smear him as a tool of the liberal media and an al Qaeda sympathizer. The columns Schlussel pimped, and was rightly ridiculed by Artie Lange, this morning on Howard Stern's radio show make the mudslinging of Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin appear downright respectable. There's only one reason that Howard Stern allows Debbie Schlussel on the air:

Between that headshot and the Jennings slanders I think Schlussel qualifies to be a Stern Show "wack-packer", don't you? She looks like someone who did her own hair and makeup for a Glamour Shots shoot because she didn't want to look tacky. That's a color I've only seen on strippers and lead singers for 80's hair metal bands.

This photo reminds me of these words of wisdom from the late Frank Zappa:

"I want a nasty little Jewish Princess
With long phony nails and a hairdo that rinses
A horny little Jewish Princess
With a garlic aroma that could level Tacoma."

There's nothing wrong with pundits like Schlussel, Malkin, and Coulter that can't be solved with a little rough assplay.
