Pundits? We don't need no stinking pundits!

Ah, politics. Some selections from around the web:

  • JohnKerryIsADouchebagButImVotingForHimAnyway.Com — The URL pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?

  • Stand Up and Holla! — An essay contest for 18-24 year-olds being sponsored by the Republican National Convention. The essay topic is: “Why is the President’s call to community service important and how have you demonstrated it?” Okay, I have two questions. First of all, what the hell is that question even asking? The part before the “and” is straightforward, but how does one demonstrate “the President’s call to community service”? Does demonstrating against it count? Okay, that’s already more than two questions, but I’ve got a second major question. It’s a one-word question. “Holla”?

  • Bush Country Ketchup — What would a campaign be without partisan ketchup? A pretty obvious gimmick, really. Reminds me of the lame anti-Ben-and-Jerry’s Star Spangled Ice Cream, the “Ice Cream with a Conservative Flavor”. Personally, I think you’d have to be some kind of nut to actually want to purchase a flavor of ice cream called “Choc & Awe” (though presumably not a “Nutty Environmentalist”). Seriously, are there any funny Republicans? Even Dennis Miller’s gotten considerably less funny and more didactic since he became an outspoken neocon.

  • My Secret Life as a Prostitute — No, not about politicians. Instead, a rather well-written weblog by a more noble variety of whore. Makes for pretty interesting reading.

  • Hey Crackhead — Speaks for itself:

    I am an engineer. Do you ever see me shaking down bums in the Loin for a calculator and sliderule? No, you don’t. Because engineering is the main thing I do, I went and bought myself a calculator. The main thing you do is crack. How do you get by without a crackpipe? The other crackheads must clown on you non-stop. I mean, the fucking saw you used to saw off my sparkplugs is probably worth five or ten bucks. Why not sell or trade it for a crackpipe? You really haven’t put much thought into this, have you?


I don't know bout the rest of y'all but I see the same link twice. Now I'm wondering, am I a total idiot or did shonk put in the same link twice? Now, I know what you are all thinking. I'm an idiot. And I am probably missing something. Shonk probably meant to put in the same link twice. Now, even writing this, I'm showing what an idiot I am. But I think that shonk meant to put something along these lines: http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/sfo/27499971.html
for the Hey Crackhead link. Now if I am right, by the time anyone but shonk reads this, he will have quietly changed the link and called me an idiot. Then everyone else will call me an idiot. So shonk, I beg you, erase this comment, if you are gonna do the rest of that. You know my reputation cant take it.

Right you are. As usual, I'm an idiot.

Be more funny.

Be more funny.

I would if I could.

Posted by: shonk at April 27, 2004 12:13 PM

Not you. I was addressing that to Aaron.

Based on the phrasing of that essay question, together with Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, et al.'s famous ways with words, perhaps the more pertinent question is whether there are any even moderately articulate Republicans.

'Be more funny.'
I woulda at least tried, but I expect shonk to have deleted that comment by now. hes slowin down in his old age.

Anyway I thought that 'Hey Crackhead' thing I linked was pretty funny, and remember, I was the first to link it.
