I have three nephews and one niece, and they all seem to like me well enough. With no real competition, I qualify as the “cool uncle,” even though they have no idea what I’m talking about most of the time.
Apparently it was news to my 14-year-old niece that the Pussycat Dolls are ignorant sluts whose fan base consists of materialistic idiots with shitty taste in music. I think she thought they were somehow empowering, or at the very least harmless.
The lyrics to their latest hit:
When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies
When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have Groupies
be careful what you wish for
‘Cause you just might get it
I ain’t complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say
You know what it’s like to be nameless
My niece told me she also liked some country music, such as Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood.
They aren’t country, I told her, they’re crappy pop stars with a twang. And while we’re on the subject … Good Charlotte has nothing to do with punk.
If I don’t tell her, apparently no one else will. The tutelage continues, and it’s not without sacrifice.
It requires watching an occasional episode of “The Hills” or other such nonsense. But I do it … for the children.
Is it not fair to launch ad hominem attacks against a guy who’s said:
“So this is what the last days of the Catholic Church are going to look like. Buggering boys undermines the moral base and the laywers rip the gold off the Vatican altars. We may get one more Pope, when this senile one dies, but that’s probably about it.”
“Isn’t the Democratic Party the official SODOMIZER PROTECTION ASSOCIATION of AMERICA — oh, I forgot, it was just an accident that Clintoon’s first act in office was to promote “gays in the military.” RAGHEADS are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters — it all goes together.”
“Anybody ask why HELLary couldn’t keep BJ Bill satisfied? Not lesbo or anything, is she?”
“But the real question is: WHERE IS CHUBBIE CHELSEA?”
Oh, and by the way, he’s a 9/11 truther.
Real respectable scholar there.
The best-selling pamphleteer who smears Obama as a drug-using Muslim is on CNN right now complaining about ad hominem attacks.
Perhaps the hog joweled bigot should read his own book, “with more than 700 footnotes,” he repeats, as if the footnotes are sacrosanct. So what if your source is some fringe blogger.
The fair and balanced likes of Sean Hannity give Corsi a forum, introducing him as a journalist and scholar. He’s neither. He writes for WorldNetDaily, a fundamentalist Christian version of The National Enquirer, only less credible. Among its headlines:
*Astonishing photo claims: Dead Bigfoot stored on ice
*Pelosi told: Planet has already been saved … by Jesus
*Are you too busy making money? …
*Gunmaker to feds: Give me my firearm!
*This is America. Speak English!
Yeah, Jerome Corsi is to be taken seriously.
Everything you need to know about the Fulton County 911 operator whose mistake led to a woman’s death last weekend is contained in this excerpt from Thursday’s AJC:
In April 2003, Conteh was suspended for falling asleep at her desk so deeply that she tumbled from behind her console and scraped her left ear as she fell. Conteh explained she was leaning over to pick up paper when she fell, according to the file.
She filed a worker’s compensation report on her injury.
