Sampled reactions

Just a few from the many. The Bush-tard critiques are getting thinner and thinner on substance and heavier on "liberal liberal liberal"-type meaninglessness:

That site is incredible. (4+ / 0-)

It's like The Onion came back from the dead, mated with the Yesmen, and had a child who was adopted by Charles Bukowski.

It is quite annoying that there are so many lousy TV hosts on the "most loathsome" lists - but there is no CEO of a major pharma company. While keeping lower public profile, they have wrought far-reaching damage to pharma industry and US healthcare.


That list of the most loathsome, reprehensible people of 2007 made me sick. I wish I had never read it. Who are those nasty, angry, yucky, mean, religion bashing, all hating jerks who wrote that list? Sometimes people suck. Honestly, that list sort of murdered all the warm-fuzzies I have been feeling towards life and people in the last few weeks.

OK I went back since the beginning with this guy and for the fun of it forwarded the years of rambling AND raving to 2 psychologists (one that lives in my house) along with my own opinions I came to several conclusions the author is:

1. A Bush hater and any one that is/was/or ever thought to be involved with bush is hated including his mother who bore him.

2. Hates all democrats that don’t hate Bush.

3. Hates all women that are powerful and successful.

4. Hates all men who are powerful and successful.

5. Hates all women that are good looking.

6. Hates all men that are good looking.

7. Hates all male and female that are financially well off.

8. Hates all that are religious (even throws in Jesus)

9. Never makes ONE mention of anything wrong with Bill Clinton.

Makes (and I counted) numerous homosexual and/or unnatural sex act references.

Summation: Fudgepacker, Clinton do boy.

Loved the author's comments about Bush & Cheney. Pissed me off though when he included The Troops on the list. I hate this damn war but it's not their fault. Bet the author was one of those who spit on the troops returning from Vietnam. Spit on the rich men who get richer off of war not the poor souls who pay with their lives.
What an ass!

WTF... I stopped after I read that, this obviously is written by someone that has not stepped outside his room at his mommy's house for the last 35 years. Not worth reading in my opinion...

Big +1 there.

Glad to see that he appreciates all that is sacrificed so he can write this crap behind some phoney name. People were buying their own armor...they were told they're not allowed to use it. Honestly who does this guy think he is? Evil or Very Mad

Man, I was so ready to shoot this one down, I mean, I had my double barreled, sawed-off snark special loaded with buckshot and I was going to murderthis link.

Then I read it, and damn. They really put voice to a couple of my opinions, and in the case of number 9, knocked it out of the park.

This is the worst of the web.

I disagree, this is the worst America has had to offer the world for the past year or so, writing about it just brings it out into the open and makes people aware of it. And if you read closely, a lot of the awful things that are on this list can only have happened because too many people in the United States willfully ignore the things being done in our name.

This isn't the worst of the web, this is a depiction of the worst of ourselves, and it needs to be writ large and broadcast across the web to the world, if for no other reason, than to tell everyone that we know these fuckers exist, and not all of us support their antics.

Hell, I want pointed, incisive commentary like this every day, in the main stream media. I want statements like this to be the primary perspective the average American has of their politicians, because I want to go back to a time when we didn't trust those in power, and they had to really work to screw us over, rather than just having us roll over whenever they asked for it.

Man. The only thing worse than pompous, judgmental, ostentatiously verbose bloggers is pompous, judgmental, ostentatiously verbose bloggers who get it completely spot on.

Sentence fragments that would have been better off in a bulleted list, yet are somehow long and disjointed enough to justify placing in paragraph form. The syntactical embodiment of attention-deficit disorder. The complete lack of structure. No verbs in some fragments. Like reading the resume of a douche bag that dropped out of college but wants to impress you with their life experience.

Every year it's funny, and every year the genteel chickenshit handholders here cry about it because apparently it's not nice to make fun of the rich and evil.

These are, as always, uniformly awesome. I can never figure out why people hate these lists unless they are one of the people loathed, or have tremendous personal investment in one of them.
