Passive aggressive politeness as a form of psychological torture.

And Darth Cheney scratches yet another country off his war criminal arrest and enforcement vacation list.

6:33 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

If he went with Kissinger we could get a toofer.

6:50 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

rawstory commenters said vancouver was very peaceful last time darth stole treasure from there.

@jwmcsame: Not sure if you’re joking, but a near riot did break out, Cheney was confined to his hotel for almost seven hours, and one of the protesters was so desperate to get inside the building to strangle the doddering old fascist that he choked the police officer blocking the entrance. So, yeah, I can see that he doesn’t wanna repeat his Canadian vacay.

A former US VP with a Secret Service detail is afraid of a few angry college students? For that matter, imagine the international incident if Canada followed the law and arrested Cheney. Yet I still look forward to the arrest of smaller fish like John Yoo or David Addington.

Huh. Apparently yawl (working on my Southern pandering) are very intolerant of other’s views. Who knew?

“Politics can be a sensitive subject and a number of SNS users have decided to block, unfriend, or hide someone because of their politics or posting activities. In all, 18% of social networking site users have taken one of those steps… Liberals are the most likely to have taken each of these steps to block, unfriend, or hide. In all, 28% of liberals have blocked, unfriended, or hidden someone on SNS because of one of these reasons, compared with 16% of conservatives and 14% of moderates. “

Nojo, perhaps you should add an “unfriend” or “asshole” button to keep your constituency happy.

@libertarian tool: Personally, I’m intolerant of idiots. I can’t speak for relative intolerance among idiots.

9:17 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@libertarian tool: I unfriended one person because I didn’t want her racist, anti-Muslim stuff on my FB feed. I unfriended another guy for his anti-gay brand of Christianity. A sister of a former colleague loves putting racist anti-Omaba shit (Chimps, etc.) up as “humor.” She got filtered out. That’s what I’m intolerant of. Fuck ‘em.

@libertarian tool: I keep clicking on your Gravatar, but I still see you. ;-P (You know I love you, right?)

@JNOV is like, Peace?: No accounting for taste.

9:38 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

TJ / Alassippi and Missibama must feel very hurt and neglected.

Fox has kicked their coverage over to the morons and geeks at Fox Business. But the unkindest cut is that Nojo hasn’t even launched a cracker open thread.

Santorum continues to stick to first place in MS and AL … can only hope he wins and forces Mittens to withdraw.

9:47 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Too much santorum could make a normal person withdraw. I don’t think Mittens’ standards are that high.

9:48 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@libertarian tool: I think someone is really reaching to equate blocking someone’s comments from my Facebook page with INTOLERANCE. I blocked my own sister because of her constant reactionary posts. I’m perfectly okay with letting her spout off into the series of tubes, but I don’t have to read her messages of ignorance and hate.

9:52 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Alabama goes for Santorum. Lube prices go through the roof.

9:53 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Frothy wins Bama!

10:01 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

O’Donnell on MSNBC: Republicans are having a three-way in Mississipi. I guess Dr. Evol is just a looky-Lou.

10:11 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Rachel discussing how handsome the Republican candidates are: “I’m no expert.” <3

10:24 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@mellbell:She never shopped at Home Depot? Because I was at our nearest hard wood forestry store today and they hired on someone who could even turn me straight. Wait. Turn Rachel straight. Wait. Turn noje straight. OK. Point being he was studly masculine handsome without cramming it down your throat. Unfortunately.

@Dave H: This is why God made the ‘ignore’ button.

‘Canada is too dangerous.’ What next? Celine Dion is too musical? Chevy Chase it too funny? Birks with socks is a trend?

10:30 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

What the fuck is going on with Frothy Mix’s hair?

How much lube did he use to slick it back?

10:32 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@SanFranLefty: Granted, it’s not Mayor Gavin “McDreamy” Newsom levels of grease, but still slicked.

10:32 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@SanFranLefty: Looks like a toupee put into place by a blind dwarf.

10:32 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Which one of those teenaged girls on stage with Frothy Mix was once crying doll girl?

10:34 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Is he going to do a shout-out to the fetus in a jar?

10:38 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@SanFranLefty: She might be the one campaigning in Hawaii.

10:38 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@SanFranLefty: I’m not sure. It might be the one banished to POTUS’s birthplace. Still, who knew Kenya was holding a caucus?

Santorum attacks extreme enviro policy in response to the BP spill. Take a bow Dodger.

10:40 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@Walking Still: Jinx.

10:40 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

It is surprising that Santorum had the sense to flee to Louisiana. Maybe he’s planning to paint the town red with Vitter.

10:41 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@mellbell: I owe you a coke.

10:42 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Santorum claims Mississippi.

10:47 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

37% of Republican Vagina-Americans in Alabama go for Frothy Mix. I’m surprised they were allowed out of their kitchens to vote.

+1 to Mark Thompson on MSNBC for calling out the “things were great before 1965″ dog whistle.

10:50 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Santorum storms to victory in Mississippi.

10:59 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@Walking Still: And Newticle pouts with nasty comments for everyone. He certainly makes himself laugh. Who’s the black guy they got to stand behind him?

11:04 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@SanFranLefty: They must pay their tokens. I hope it’s a lot.

I had to bail on Il Nuce. The slime was oozing too thickly.

11:14 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Any guesses on the Hawaii caucus results?

I’ll predict Mittens wins with 42%.

11:21 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

Important to point out that Mittens looks to come in 3rd in both of the states still fighting the Civil War.

11:23 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@blogenfreude: Maybe we can keep them busy fighting each other.

11:39 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@SanFranLefty: Tree is tied with Cleveland State in the NIT first round. Not a great year for PAC 12 Men’s b-ball.

11:51 pm • Tuesday • March 13, 2012

@Walking Still: funny that Newt and Santorum split the sociopath vote – twice as many votes as Mittens got … if one of them was gone, the other would have beaten Mittens soundly.

12:00 am • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

Come on Dick “Dick” Cheney. You’ve got a friendly gubbiment in PM Blimpy. Hell, they’re even into vote suppression just like you guys were.

12:16 am • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@blogenfreude: Using Nate Silver’s math, without Newt in the race Santorum would’ve topped 50% in both Alabama and Mississippi (the breakdown would’ve been 52-37-10 in the former, 51-38-9 in the latter).

12:21 am • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@mellbell: The Frothy Mixture should offer the VP spot to the thrice-married serial adulterer and cruise to victory.

12:32 am • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@blogenfreude: But he’d have to watch his daughters 24-7 if they somehow won.

12:47 am • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

Dear Frothy Mix,

You know what makes me “want to throw up”? Your church mounting a reprehensible attack on a group working with the thousands of people who were molested by your priests.

From the director of Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP):

“It was not a fishing expedition,” Mr. Clohessy said. “It was a fishing, crabbing, shrimping, trash-collecting, draining the pond expedition. The real motive is to harass and discredit and bankrupt SNAP, while discouraging victims, witnesses, whistle-blowers, police, prosecutors and journalists from seeking our help.”

Jesus Wept.

ADD: Meanwhile, talk about an off-message comment by Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League:

“SNAP is a menace to the Catholic Church.” Mr. Donohue said leading bishops he knew had resolved to fight back more aggressively against the group: “The bishops have come together collectively. I can’t give you the names, but there’s a growing consensus on the part of the bishops that they had better toughen up and go out and buy some good lawyers to get tough. We don’t need altar boys.

Or only when the altar boys are really cute and young?

3:00 am • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@SanFranLefty: Maybe the Breaking! news about “Pasta” Carbonero wedding her Spanish footie boy will cheer you up.

2:32 pm • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@¡Andrew!: good. i saw this on rawstory yesterday and two of the commenters said vancouver was peaceful. i don’t know for sure, i wasn’t there.

3:00 pm • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@jwmcsame: It was huge nooz here in the Pacific NW, where most riots are hockey related.

4:47 pm • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@¡Andrew!: what if the brave new democratic iraq starts up a mossad like unit to bring war criminals to justice?

6:03 pm • Wednesday • March 14, 2012

@Walking Still: Well, he won with 45%. Still, I was pretty close.
