Just Another Moonbat Monday

I have a feeling it’s gonna be a hard week in Democrat/Lefty Land, and they know it. General Petraeus, who the Democrat leadership have been portraying in the lead up to his testimony today as nothing more than a BushCo puppet, was on the receiving end of an obnoxious, full page advert, courtesy of MoveOn.org, in the Old Gray Lady’s pages today that tries to smear Petraeus as a… get this: traitor.

Such a gutter action does not go unanswered.

Britain and America.com is liveblogging the General’s testimony, via the BBC’s feed, which which is leaving that blogger not amused.

Over in Kosickstan, one of their resident genius-class diarists tries to equate Osama bin Laden with Ronald Reagan. Instead of tearing the moron’s logic apart, I’ll just say “ditto” to Bill Hobbs’s reaction:

DailyKos’ attempt to assert moral equivalence between a terrorist leader who masterminded the slaughter of thousands of innocents while aiding a regime that slaughtered women for showing an angle or wearing lipstick and a former American president whose tireless efforts lead to the freedom of millions from Soviet oppression is disgusting.

In other Moobat-a-licious insanity, everybody’s favorite cable TV idiot, The Olberdouche, says Rupert Murdoch’s FOX News is “as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.”

Meanwhile, on the domestic front, Nancy “Culture of Corruption” Pelosi is catching crap from members of the Nutsroots for “enabling” BushHitlerCo. Additionally, the Democrat Party’s financial shenanigans is–albeit slowly–having more and more light shined upon it, and we ain’t seeing a pretty picture. On the (relatively speaking) low end, we have Normy Hsu, who is giving the New School’s head honcho no end of agita by drawing scrutiny to his Board of Trustees. At the higher end of the spectrum, two George Soros funded outfits (MoveOn.org is another target of his financial largesse ) have been nailed by the FEC for financial and electoral chicanery.

Still No Cure for Cancer

this might be the dumbest stuff I’ll come across this month:
Study finds left-wing brain, right-wing brain – Los Angeles Times

Exploring the neurobiology of politics, scientists have found that liberals tolerate ambiguity and conflict better than conservatives because of how their brains work.

In a simple experiment reported today in the journal Nature Neuroscience, scientists at New York University and UCLA show that political orientation is related to differences in how the brain processes information.

Err, should I go wake up Captain Obvious? People process politics differently… Wow! And doesn’t “tolerate ambiguity” mean “don’t really give a finite shit”?

The results show “there are two cognitive styles — a liberal style and a conservative style,” said UCLA neurologist Dr. Marco Iacoboni, who was not connected to the latest research. [TC: then who gives a damn what he thinks, you lazy bitch internish-like reporterette?]

Participants were college students whose politics ranged from “very liberal” to “very conservative.” They were instructed to tap a keyboard when an M appeared on a computer monitor and to refrain from tapping when they saw a W.

M appeared four times more frequently than W, conditioning participants to press a key in knee-jerk fashion whenever they saw a letter.

Yay, science! You made college students act like monkeys! That must have been friggin’ rigorous. And did none of your monkeys fall in between those two extremes, Prof. Numbnuts?

Each participant was wired to an electroencephalograph that recorded activity in the anterior cingulate cortex, the part of the brain that detects conflicts between a habitual tendency (pressing a key) and a more appropriate response (not pressing the key) [Excuse me? why is the negative “more appropriate” than the positive? Isn’t “Science” supposed to be blind?] . Liberals had more brain activity and made fewer mistakes than conservatives when they saw a W, researchers said. Liberals and conservatives were equally accurate in recognizing M.

Okay, someone’s gonna have to help me here. Because these college monkeys who self-defined as “liberal” thought about hitting the wrong key, and somehow managed to refrain (instead of, in a blink, said “Fuck, hit the key”), at a better clip than the self-defined “conservative” kids, I’m supposed to discern… what, exactly?

Frank J. Sulloway, a researcher at UC Berkeley’s Institute of Personality and Social Research who was not connected to the study [again a “not involved” source], said the results “provided an elegant demonstration that individual differences on a conservative-liberal dimension are strongly related to brain activity.”

Wow, shocka! Lefties and Righties think differently… who’d a thunk such junk?

go read the rest if you want ‘beer goggles can’t fix it’ proof that ANYTHING can be blamed on George W. Bush.

Late Night Dumb & Drunk

After spending most of the night banging beers and grilling chicken, Gino doesn’t believe I can make fun of him online tonight because, he says, “it’s too late; Wife™ said she was shutting the office down when she went to bed. You’re shut down.”

“You believe that?”

“She said she was shutting you down.”

“So if I type “Gino is a fucking tool” and hit ‘send’ on this here laptop, you’re telling me it won’t go?”

“She said she turned it off.”

“She probably pulled the plug on the router or the modem.”

“So you’re screwed.”

I hold up my cell phone.

“So I can go ahead and hit ‘send’ then?”

“Wait… that ain’t fair!”

TOO LATE.
