What Fresh Hell Is This?

WAPO Snarks on Scaife

My sister Betty (who works in DC) sent me a link yesterday to the snarkalicious Washington Post article on the "surpassingly vicious spectacle that is the divorce of Richard Mellon Scaife."

While a few blogs have already linked to it yesterday, there's a couple of things I thought worth noting:
1) If you only read the article, go back right now and view the equally snarky video they've posted.

2) While seeming to leave no gory detail out, the article actually sanitizes one bit. It says of Scaife, "He almost never speaks to the media, and on one of the few occasions he did, it was to tell a reporter, who'd sandbagged him on the street, that she was ugly and that her mother was ugly, too."

What WAPO left out was that he also told her, "You fucking Communist cunt, get out of here."

We don't actually have to claim this guy as our own, do we?
Oh, and Betty, no, you should not expect to receive $1,800.00 asparagus tongs for Christmas.

John K. says: Hey, did any of you lefties hear Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif) apologize for his disparging comments towards the troops and the President. Did you lefties know the factions are having a reunification parade in Ramadi, Iraq today? Oh you lefties are losing big time. Big time. LMAO and a hearty comical guffaw toward the left. Wonder how this news will play with the comedy duo of Olbermouth and Matthews tonight?

A "reunification parade"? Oh, yeah. Will they be throwing candy? It's all going swimmingly over there. In fact, I'm planning on vacationing in Baghdad over the holidays at the Green Zone Holiday Inn, aka, the Sandals of the Middle East.

Personally, I'd be glad to see some progress there. Gee, it's only been, what, like 5 years, half a trillion dollars or so, 3,000+ dead American soldiers, easily a few hundred thousand dead Iraqis, 1.5 million Iraqi refugees, and the best PR campaign Osama Bin Laden could have ever asked for.

Definitely time for another "Mission Accomplished" banner. "We did it, we invaded a country that wasn't a threat, killed lots of innocent people, wasted billions of dollars, trashed our standing in the world, and created more terrorists. Success, baby!"

When we invade Iran, Koward, I suspect you'll be first in the enlistment line, eh?

Y'know, I just had an epiphany - John K. is Dwight Shrute! It's so obvious in retrospect. Why didn't I see this before?

Do we get any Shrute Bucks for engaging him on this board?

[Radio blaring: "Ya' know, folks, this is what these liberals are all about. Take this Pete Stark fellow..."]

[A voice in the stairway]

"Johnny, honey, can you turn that down, please."

"Oh, yes, say it, Rushie baby, say it. Spanks those libs, spank them, spank, spank..."

[Sounds of someone descending the stairs]

"Johnny, honey, please turn it down. And you're PB&J with no crusts is ready... Oh my... Johnny... What are... Please stop..."

"Mom, I told you to always shout 'incoming' when you are coming down here."

"Honey. We have to talk. You promised me. You said if I got you that satellite radio thing for your 40th birthday you'd stop doing... that.... to Fluffy while you listen to that man. Honey, it's just not normal. You've got..."

"Mom, just be quiet. It's just like Rushie says. You liberals are such hypocrites. Now get me my sandwich! You didn't use the sugar-free Smucker's again, did you?!"

John K. says: Nope, no news from Iraq today. No reporters showing car bombs going off. Of course none covered the reunification parade either and yes they did throw candy. Note from Sen. Webb to Sen Reid, (leaked to the press by a disgruntled Reid aid. "Anymore brilliant ideas? The attack on talk radio worked so well." LMAO

No news from Iraq. Oh, except another couple of dead GIs. No big deal, right, Chickenhawk? Because once again, neither one of them was you. You were blathering about it over here so you wouldn't be in danger over there.
