Republicans — Everybody is the ENEMY, Even Big Business

The current Republican Party is so anti-everything and so full of hatred and fear and loathing, they even hate their traditional allies. They probably hate themselves most of all. No wonder they're the biggest customers of those bondage and S&M hookers. "Whip Me!" "Gouge my nipple! Uuuugghhh!!! It hurts soo gooood!!!"

They aren’t even the party of Big Business any more. Their only purpose is to derail anything and everything Obama tries to do. And some of those traitorous corporations are actually cooperating with that commie president. NOOO!!!

The most glaring example right now is the health reform debate. As this article by Peter Suderman says:

“From the time the bill hit Congress, Republicans found themselves opposite big industry interests. From the drugmakers to the doctors to the insurers, every major player in the health-care battle declared themselves willing to work with Democrats to enact some variant on reform.”

Former Senate Majority Leaders Bob Dole and Bill Frist have both spoken out in favor of at least some portions of Obama’s health reform agenda. And they both have financial ties to the health care industry.

It’s the same with every other task Obama is trying to accomplish. Clean energy legislation, the stimulus, regulating the finance industry — some businesses are in favor of these reforms, or they’re at least wanting to cooperate and compromise with the Democrats. But Republicans? If that Kenyan Fascist Muslim babykilling Socialist wants it, Republicans are agin’ it. No ifs. No exceptions.

Whenever that Republican Big Tent threatens to get too big or too diverse, the exit door opens. Anyone who isn't hateful or bigoted enough gets the Heave-Ho.

This whole thing brings to mind Bob Dylan's hilarious 1960's song "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues".

He's pretending to be a paranoid neurotic wingtard John Bircher type, thinking that everybody's a hidden Communist agent trying to subvert the country. He ends the song with "So now I'm sittin' home investigatin' myself! Hope I don't find out anything...hmmm, Great God!"

The next logical step is for Republicans to start torturing and executing themselves for being everything they hate. If only...

Republican “purists” always say they need to “stand for something,” to stick to their “principles” and weed out those pussy moderates and "RINOs." And what would those principles be? Anyone know???

What If Bush Had Done That?

That’s the question that this article is asking. “What if Bush had done that?”

I haven’t clicked on the story yet, but that’s an excellent question. What if Bush had done, well, anything.

Obama’s workload would be about a trillion percent easier if the Worst Dumbest Shittiest President EVER had done something — anything! — besides invading other countries and cutting taxes for his corporate donors.

As you know, Obama has spent the last few months fighting the fight of his life for health care reform. What if Bush had done that? Well, let’s see — eight years times 45,000 (the number of Americans who die each year from lack of health care) — about 360,000 Americans would be alive right now instead of being murder victims; victims of our mercenary health insurance industry.

Another Herculean challenge facing President Obama is: trying to rein in that gargantuan out-of-control Frankenstein known as the finance industry. He’s trying to re-establish some of the banking regulations we used to have up until twenty-odd years ago. What if Bush had done that? Well, for starters, the Great Financial Meltdown of 2008 — the worst since 1929 — would have been averted. Millions of unemployed Americans are no doubt wishing Bush had done that. They’d still have jobs, homes and bank accounts.

Climate change and the energy crisis are two more problems that will eat this country alive if something isn’t done. Obama is pushing for clean energy legislation which will start mitigating both of those crises. What if Bush had done that? Imagine that. Gasoline at $5 a gallon, global warming threatening to become our worst nightmare, thousands of knuckle-dragging inbred simplefucks blubbering about “Drill Baby Drill!” — all of this would’ve been something out of a bad science fiction movie.

Also, President Obama scored higher than 100 on an IQ test. What if Bush had done that?

When a Billionaire Has Fallen and Can’t Get Up

I hate to point out a silver lining in the housing collapse that’s fucked over so many millions of Americans. But Goddamn it, this just Feeels Sooo Fuckin’ Gooood.

The biggest real estate deal in American history has collapsed. Now I don’t care if a few filthy rich people find a way to make even more money and get even richer. But this particular scam — even though it was perfectly legal — would have made billions of dollars at the expense of thousands of renters who had been playing by the rules, doing everything right, and almost had the rug pulled out from under them.

Sometimes lightning strikes the right person.

In 2006, an investment group led by New York City real estate firm Tishman Speyer Properties and BlackRock Realty Advisors purchased two huge Manhattan apartment complexes — Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. And of course the $5.4 billion price included the lives of the 25,000 people in those two apartment complexes.

$5.4 billion for 25,000 people. Well, at least that’s more valuable than the “ten dollars a life!” from the “In Cold Blood” murders — mostly because of inflation, not because of any sort of ethics or morals on the part of these wannabe robber barons.

The Crooks Who Would Be King are almost certain to default on their $3 billion mortgage and the $1.4 billion secondary loan they bought the property with.

Their plans for converting thousands of apartments into luxury condos — to be sold at market value — are up in smoke. Awww.

A few would-be oligarchs have fallen and they can’t get up. And twenty-five thousand middle class renters can keep their lives. Works for me.

In other news: this headline is asking Are Humans Still Evolving?

Still More Republican Lies About Health Care Reform

Every time the Republicans recite the bullshit their HMO puppetmasters tell them to recite, the lie gets refuted over and over. And like a cat that keeps jumping up on the table no matter how many times you push him off, the Republicans keep coming back with more intelligence-insulting lies to the American people. Is anybody still listening?

Yesterday’s weekly GOP radio/internet address was delivered by Republican Nebraska Sen. Mike Johanns. His health insurance johns instructed their prostitute to keep spewing out their same old talking points, and Senator Johanns performed his assigned task as ordered.

If repeated lies could be physically transformed into fecal matter, Senator Johanns’ mouth would look like a whale with explosive diarrhea.

“To the factory worker, who has forgone pay raises for the promise of better insurance benefits for you and your family: your health insurance will be taxed and your premiums will go up.”

“To the recent college graduate burdened with student loans: you'll be forced to buy health insurance the government mandates, and if you refuse, you'll be hit with a penalty.”

“To our seniors, who wish to receive care in the comfort of their homes: funding for hospice care and home health care services would be cut.”

First of all, if you actually believe the Republican Party gives a flying fuck about factory workers, senior citizens or recent college graduates (unless they’re MBAs on their way to Wall Street) — I can get you a great deal on some oceanfront property in Kansas.

And who exactly still listens to the GOP weekly address? Does their audience include ANYBODY whose parents aren’t first cousins???

Uh oh, Senator Johanns forgot to mention Death Panels, and the thousands of Canadian citizens who are dying on the Emergency Room floor every week while they wait and wait and wait for some faceless socialist bureaucrat to help them.

Maybe the most blatant Republican lies are being quietly taken out of circulation. But they keep coming up with new ones, and there's always a new battalion of inbreds who will believe them.

Heritage Foundation: “Rape is Good”

If you visit liberal/”alternative” news sites or blogs, you probably know about the Halliburton/KBR employee who was gang raped in Iraq by some of her coworkers. (You didn’t find out about it from the mainstream “media” since they’ve been too busy with the Balloon Boy and the usual celebutante drivel.)

This rape victim’s employment contract had a clause which prohibited her from taking any legal action against her employer in the event she was raped. Senator Al Franken proposed an amendment that would prohibit the Pentagon from doing business with any company that requires female employees to sign one of these “I promise not to squeal or sue my employer if I get raped by my coworkers” agreements.

Thirty (30) senators voted AGAINST this amendment. Yes of course they were all Republicans. You had to ask?

Here is a list of the Thirty Pieces of Shit — those pathetic pitiful little dickwads who think rape in the defense of Halliburton is no vice. (Sorry, Barry G.)

And the ultra-rightwing Heritage Foundation thinks Al Franken’s amendment is just the usual liberal whining; just a payoff to trial lawyers and those unscrupulous employees who file frivolous lawsuits against their employers.

In a related story, the Republican leadership is trying to attract some normal people — i.e. people who walk upright, breathe through their noses and have IQs above freezing — into the GOP. But they aren’t sure how to accomplish this, what with all the bookburning knuckledragging sickfucks who dominate the party (see above).

President Obama’s Enemies List

All right everybody, mind your Ps and Qs and watch what you say in public, or you too might end up on Obama’s Enemies List!


This dire warning comes from Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Duuhh). The good senator spelled it all out for that powergrabbing commie in the White House: “Don’t start an enemies list.”

He was referring of course to Richard Nixon, who created an enemies list, based on the Nixon paranoid mentality of “everybody is against us and we are going to get them.”

Alexander named several of Obama’s terrifying power grabs: boycotting Fox News, criticizing the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and threatening to take away the health insurance industry’s exemption from federal anti-trust laws.

It brings to mind that stirring heartbreaking poem from Nazi Germany: “…when they stripped away the insurance industry’s anti-trust exemption, I said nothing…and then when they came for me…”

Are you frightened yet? The Gestapo could be knocking at your door any minute now! Or would that be the KGB? Since Obama is a Communist, a Fascist AND a Muslim terrorist (we got us a threefer!), that dreaded midnight knock at the door could be the Gestapo, the KGB or the Islamic Revolutionary Guard. Any way you look at it, we’re all doomed!

Barack Obama’s Enemies List [sigh] Let’s see, on the one hand, a president argues with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and tries to apply already-existing anti-trust laws to a ruthless corporate behemoth that’s threatening to take down the whole country. And on the other hand, a president who recruited the CIA and FBI to spy on campus protesters and tried to get the IRS to audit his political opponents.

Yup, same thing.

Hey, I just thought of something. I don’t need to use comment moderation any more. Now that my Master is watching over all of us — if you leave a negative comment, I’ll simply e-mail it to the White House, and you’ll be hauled away to one of Obama’s infamous re-education camps before you know it.

Tim Phillips: Portrait of a Parasite

If a bucket of excrement could somehow be imbued with consciousness and an evil intelligence, you’d have Tim Phillips.

Karl Rove and the late unlamented Lee Willie Horton Atwater have been household names for years. But Tim Phillips has managed to stay beneath the radar, as well as beneath contempt. FreedomWorks is the best known of the “grass roots” front organizations for the Health Insurance lobby. But Americans For Prosperity (AFP), led by Tim Phillips, is just as busy behind the scenes. And they’re every bit as slippery and underhanded.

HMO employees and lobbyists disguised as protesters, inbred dunces who are gullible enough to believe all the bullshit spewed out by the HMO lobby — Americans For Prosperity has it all. In addition to fighting health care reform, Americans For Prosperity has other Astroturf front groups “protesting” against labor unions and clean energy legislation.

In the late 1990s, Tim Phillips and Ralph Reed were working together to unify devout Christians and corporate powerbrokers against their common enemy: those wicked Satanic bureaucrats who were regulating the energy industry. Their organization was called Century Strategies. Their “grass roots” campaign was what led to the deregulation frenzy that brought us the Enron meltdown — which caused thousands of people to lose their jobs, retirement pensions and life savings. Hallelujah!

Remember now, they were just following the Bible. Who could forget that stirring passage where Jesus said: “Get those fuckin’ socialist bureaucrats out of the oil industry! NOW, Asshole!”

After wreaking havoc on millions of people, Phillips sunk even lower. In the history of political attack ads, one particular commercial set the all-time record for its long reach into the depths of putrid. Yes, you know the one — that 2002 TV ad that equated Senator Max Cleland (Vietnam veteran and triple amputee) with Osama bin Laden. And that ad was produced by none other than…drum roll…Tim Phillips.

Rachel Maddow interviewed Phillips on her show and called him a parasite. That’s putting it mildly.

Give ‘Em Hell Obama

Yeah! The gloves are starting to come off. We’ve had months and months of bilge spewing out of the rightwing hateheads. The health sharks have spent hundreds of billions on lobbyists, sleazy attack ads, phony “reports” and Astroturf front groups.

Finally, the President of the United States is swinging back. In his weekly address, President Obama said:

“This is the unsustainable path we’re on, and it’s the path the insurers want to keep us on. In fact, the insurance industry is rolling out the big guns and breaking open their massive war chest – to marshal their forces for one last fight to save the status quo. They’re filling the airwaves with deceptive and dishonest ads. They’re flooding Capitol Hill with lobbyists and campaign contributions. And they’re funding studies designed to mislead the American people. [...]

It’s smoke and mirrors. It’s bogus. And it’s all too familiar. Every time we get close to passing reform, the insurance companies produce these phony studies as a prescription and say, “Take one of these, and call us in a decade.” Well, not this time. The fact is, the insurance industry is making this last-ditch effort to stop reform even as costs continue to rise and our health care dollars continue to be poured into their profits, bonuses, and administrative costs that do nothing to make us healthy – that often actually go toward figuring out how to avoid covering people. And they’re earning these profits and bonuses while enjoying a privileged exception from our anti-trust laws, a matter that Congress is rightfully reviewing.”

Here’s the video of Obama’s speech.

Health Insurance Companies: “Go Ahead, Cut the Baby in Half”

To everybody with at least two brain cells to rub together, it’s been obvious since the early 1990s that the health insurance industry has only one interest: gouging as many people as possible for as much money as possible. Period.

Their interest in health care is about the same as a loan shark’s heartfelt concern that everybody should have as much money as they need.

If the HMOs’ cutthroat mentality wasn’t obvious fifteen years ago, it became crystal clear last August when thousands of HMO lobbyists and their inbred mouthbreathing followers “concerned everyday citizens” staged a bunch of “spontaneous” demonstrations and town hall disruptions.

And the health sharks’ ruthlessness and jugular mentality became even more blatant just a few days ago. Two days before the final committee vote on health care reform, the HMOs released a last-minute “report” showing how devastating it would be for every American if the HMOs’ profits were jeopardized.

This was a “report???” How about a “report” from one of those drug cartels, showing the incredible health benefits of shooting heroin at least three times a day.

And you’ve gotta love the timing. It’s exactly the same as those last-minute “hit pieces” that political candidates send out just a day or two before an election. The opponent doesn’t have time to respond, so thousands of voters go to the polls thinking “Oh my God, he raped and murdered his granddaughter and then threw the corpse at his ex-wife?!?!? That does it, I’m voting for his opponent.”

There hasn’t exactly been a Solomon anywhere in this health care debate. But even without one, the health insurers have shown their true colors. They’ve become that infamous mother who didn’t care if the baby was cut in half as long as that other woman couldn’t have him. “It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!” screamed the HMOs.

Referring to the HMOs’ last-minute tantrum and pout-fest, Nancy Pelosi said:

“Anyone who had any doubts about the need for such an option need only look at the behavior of the health insurance industry this week. The idea that we would have health insurance reform without a public option becomes less likely. If you are going to mandate that people must buy insurance, why would you throw them into the lion's den of the insurance industry without some leverage with a public option?”

You Go Girl.

Mad Men episode and the “Career Girls” Murder

I’m old enough to actually remember that prehistoric era portrayed in Mad Men (1963). This program has excellent acting, plot twists, character development — but the best part is that early ‘60s feel. They capture that period so thoroughly, right down to the last detail — you’re THERE. From ten to eleven p.m. on Sunday evenings, the clock gets turned back forty-six years.

American Dreams had that same quality, especially their first season. That program was about an extended family in Philadelphia, also in 1963. (The show ran from 2002 to 2005.)

Both of those shows use hundreds of minute details to portray that era. People’s haircuts/hairstyles, “current” slang and dialogue, clothing styles, homes and furniture, cars (obviously), and brief snippets of TV shows, newscasts and “current” radio hits — it’s like the last 46 years haven’t happened yet.

American Dreams, in particular, made heavy use of then-popular radio hits in the background. Sometimes it would be a minor hit that I hadn’t heard in decades, and I’d be so busy thinking “wait, I remember that, who was that, it was…” that I’d miss some of the dialogue.

In last Sunday’s Mad Men episode, somebody’s car radio was playing a small part of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech that he made during the March on Washington (August ‘63). After a few sentences, the news shifted and there was a brief “and two women in New York’s Upper East Side were found murdered in their apartment.” And then somebody either turned off the radio or changed the station.

But I knew exactly which murder case the radio announcer was talking about. It was all over the news for weeks on end, at least in the Northeast where I was living at the time. I hadn’t thought of that incident in decades, and Id forgotten that it happened on the same day as the March on Washington.

Two “career girls” (when was the last time anybody used that phrase) were stabbed to death in their apartment. Here’s a link to that story.

Can’t wait until next week’s Mad Men episode to see what ancient memories get jarred.

Happy Indigenous People’s Day

That’s right, Fuck You Christopher Columbus. Gee, let’s name a holiday after an explorer who “discovered” a new continent and murdered millions of its inhabitants. I hate to ask a dumb question, but how in the fuck can a place be “discovered” when millions of people are already living there???

Just wondering.

We haven’t named any national holidays after famous skinheads or Ku Klux Klan leaders (yet). But once a year we roll out the red carpet for the 15th Century’s version of Adolph Hitler.

I first learned about our history — blemishes and all — from this book about ten years ago. And this book has similar information. This is knowledge that every American should have. Sorry folks, but your high school history teacher was so full of shit it was coming out of his/her ears.

And now, for whatever reason, this information has started to “trickle down” (God I hate that expression) to a few public schools here and there. Better late than never.

This can only be a good thing. America’s racist “patriot” community will have a mass tantrum over these commie politically correct history lessons. But the rest of the country — the ones whose IQs are HIGHER than their shoe sizes — are finally heaving a sigh of relief. Every country — every tribe, every region — needs to learn their history as accurately as possible. There’s nothing “negative” or “unpatriotic” about people acknowledging the dark side of their history. There were never any saints; no good guys or bad guys. Nothing is black and white.

Americans have long been appalled that Japan and Germany have kept their own people in the dark about the Rape of Nanking, Pearl Harbor, and the Holocaust (respectively). (These mistakes have been rectified in recent years.) But somehow it’s different when American history textbooks are interchangeable with a John Wayne movie.

So learn everything you can about Christopher Columbus “discovering” America and every other chapter of our history. Like every country, our history has a dark side. How could it not? Ignoring it — or yelling out unprintable insults at people who try to acknowledge this — will not accomplish anything.

As the famous saying goes: “Those who do not remember history are condemned to repeat it.”

South Carolina: Out of the Frying Pan, Into The Fire

As contemptible and pitiful as Mark Sanford is, he might be replaced by somebody even worse.

This article is about the Far Right’s mass pantytwist over Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. As you’d expect, it’s the usual spewing of a bunch of dunces who couldn’t find their way out of a one-room apartment. But in a sea of knuckledragging inbreds, one particular mutant stands head and shoulders above the rest.

South Carolina Rep. Gresham Barrett wants to be the next governor. This was his response to Obama’s Nobel Prize (here‘s another link):

“Congratulations to President Obama on his prize. I'm not sure what the international community loved best; his waffling on Afghanistan, pulling defense missiles out of Eastern Europe, turning his back on freedom fighters in Honduras, coddling Castro, siding with Palestinians against Israel, or almost getting tough on Iran. The world may love it, but following in the footsteps of Jimmy Carter is not where America needs to go. Hopefully, this surprise award will give the President cause to reevaluate his current course.”

OK, hold it, back up a minute here. Out of all the retarded spewage in that quotation, one particular mouthful of shit is louder than the rest: “Turning his back on freedom fighters in Honduras…”


Let’s see, a democratically elected president gets overthrown by the army, and that army is now redefined as “freedom fighters???” DUUUHHH!!!

Yes, back in the good old days, Honduras — like most of Central America — was ruled by a rightwing dictatorship, handpicked by the United States to carry out the ideals of Freedom. But those days are gone now, hopefully forever. And it’s time for America’s oligarchs — and the gap-toothed small-forehead eyes-too-close-together simpletons who worship them — to move on.

Public Option, But States Can “Opt Out”

This just might be a way to get the public option passed by all sixty members of the U.S. Senate. (Oh that’s right, there are forty other senators, but they’re all so busy whining and sobbing and holding their breath ‘til they turn blue — I forgot they were there.)

Some of the worst Blue Dog Democrats are from states where health insurance companies have a large presence. If these senators had integrity and/or a set of cajones, this wouldn’t matter; but you know how that goes…

One Capitol Hill aide said: “What folks are looking for is what gets 60 votes. The opt-out idea is very appealing to people. It has come up in conversations. I know personally that a handful of members have discussed it amongst themselves.”

The opposite approach — Opt In — has been vaguely discussed off and on for several years. But the Opt Out approach would have a lot more momentum. Federal legislation would make a public health insurance option available for everybody; but then each state would have the chance to bend over for the insurance industry opt out of the public option. The opting out would probably be accomplished through a statewide referendum.

Conservatives shouldn’t have any objection to this approach, since after all NOBODY really wants a bunch of socialist bureaucrats standing between themselves and their doctors.

Meanwhile, Republicans are looking over their to-do list.

Arrange a bunch of spontaneous demonstrations and shouting matches at town hall meetings — Check.

Scare the shit out of millions of gullible people with shouts of “Death Panels!” “Mandatory Abortion!” “Communist Fascist Socialist Muslim Born in Kenya!” — Check.

Squeeze campaign money out of doctors by scaring them about “Socialized Medicine!” — Check.

Republicans have spent the last few months calling and faxing thousands of doctors, trying to scare donations out of them. Fortunately doctors are generally less gullible than your Fox News couch potato. This latest Astroturf group — “Physicians' Council for Responsible Reform” — has conned donations out of 5,000 doctors. Who knows how many other doctors told them to stick it.

Dr. Paul Kramer is in that second category. He said he was interested in joining this “grass roots” organization at first, but then realized it was nothing more than “a bald fundraising effort. When I told the woman I wouldn't be interested in making any financial contribution, the call was quickly ended. I want reform and wanted to tell them that not all physicians were interested in seeing this effort tank. I never got the chance.”

What a bunch of sleazy shitbags. With all of their huge efforts at backstabbing, smearing, lying, sabotaging — the only thing the Republicans haven’t done is try to come up with an alternate plan. Nah.

We’ve all probably known somebody who puts a massive gargantuan effort into not having to work. Welfare or unemployment checks (when the person doesn’t qualify), scams, lies, ripoffs, shortchanging people; and always watching their backs and always trying to remember what they said to who. And you just want to say to this person, “wouldn’t it be easier to just go out there and get a job?”

The Republican Party reminds me of that person.

Conservatives: Liberal Bias is Everywhere

It’s bad enough that the news media is run by a bunch of liberals who want to tear down everything America stands for. But now it turns out things are worse than anyone ever suspected: even the Bible was written by liberals.

Well that explains a few things. It‘s time to set the record straight once and for all.

America was founded by He-Men who KNEW what Jesus really stood for. Manifest Destiny was NOT inspired by some long-haired pansy who drove the moneychangers from the temple and went around lisping about “let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone.”

Liberals wrote all that shit. Two thousand years of socialism and political correctness will be expunged from the Bible.

The Conservative Bible Project is finally going to rectify this terrible prank that's been played on the American people.

The original Bible only contained one passage:

“And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

With those immortal words of wisdom, what else do you need?

The Republican Health Care Plan

Finally, a winning slogan for the Democrats. They’ve been on the defensive for too long against the nonstop rightwing blatherings about “Death Panels!” and “Government Takeover!”

And now the Democrats have finally figured it out: all they have to do is ask the Republicans “What’s YOUR health care plan?”

[squirm] [shifty eyes darting every which way]

That’s right, they don’t have one. Zilch. Nada. Zip point shit.

Republicans didn’t waste a minute derailing Bill Clinton’s health care plan in 1995. Since then, the Party of Lynchin’ has had fourteen years — fourteen fuckin’ years! — to come up with a health care plan of their own.

Did they ever come up with a plan? Did they have any alternatives to Clinton’s proposals? Did they ever make any effort whatsoever to deal with the health care crisis?

No, no and no.

Senator Richard Durbin said: “The Grand Old Party's coffers are empty when it comes to health care reform.”

And Obama was dissing Republicans about this while he was talking to a group of union activists: “What's your answer? What's your solution? You know what? They don't have one.”

Now that they’ve finally been called out on it, the Republicans will probably throw together a few sketchy pages of something meaningless, just so they can point to it and go “see, we do too have a plan.”

It’ll be like that time you had all semester to write a term paper but you didn’t start it until the night before it was due.

And speaking of leftwing conspiracies: one of my “favorite” rightwing bloggers had a link to this article. Those wicked Democrats have a foolproof sinister plan for passing “Obamacare,” no matter what it takes.

If only…

The Worst TV Program EVER

I’ve never been interested in any of those Realty TV shows anyway, but this new program hits a new low. I guess it’s a realty show; technically it’s an infomercial.

Apparently some sickfuck thinks it’s a hilarious idea to take an unfortunate handicapped cerebrally-challenged mutant and sit him down in front of a TV camera so he can sputter and drool and make funny noises for everybody’s amusement.

This is funny???

Here’s a link to a short YouTube excerpt from this program. It’s too sick to watch, but you know you’re going to. Fess up, you’ve got the same morbid curiosity as everybody else. Right? Come on, nobody’s looking — go ahead, click on it.

Pretty sick, huh? Whoever this pathetic Bill Keller is, he needs to be helped — treated! — not paraded in front of a TV camera so a bunch of braindead couch potatoes can sit there and giggle at him.

What sort of depraved depths have we sunk to?
