Shep Goes Rogue Again

“I think it’s important to get our elected officials on the record.” How refreshing to watch someone commit journalism, on Fox or elsewhere. Guess that’s all we get for the year.

Hoekstra says waterboarding was legal, claims ‘there is a wide range of waterboarding.’ [Think Progress]

He needs to get in line behind Sean Hannity who promised he’d get waterboarded for charity and … oh, wait.

Re: Rachel: Please tell me “Rand” Paul is named after a great-uncle or something.

Re: Keef: Damn, Wonkette always gets the best feuds.


They really are in the wrong here. Some things are simply off-limits. Ken should apologize.

@Tommmcatt the Wet Sprocket: Not only wrong, but the original story doesn’t make sense on the face of it. I’ve been watching Keef for six months, and his show’s not about gets, celebrity or otherwise. Keef’s show is about Keef, and that’s what’s fun about it.

What’s unfair is Wonkette getting some undeserved national publicity. Their traffic is hovering around 3-year lows, and this will draw some circulation.


Newell should split off and do his own thing. He’s really the only thing I visit for. SKS is okay, but Layne is the same as always.

@Tommmcatt the Wet Sprocket: If I’m a young kid with a steady paycheck in an atrocious market, I’m staying put.

Not withstanding the fact that I did quit journalism at 24. And found myself picking peaches three months later. But that’s just me.

I’m on the edge of quitting law and taking up high-end burger flipping.

How much can he be paying him,though? Come to think of it, however, when I was his age I lived on oatmeal and two hits of extasy on the weekend. Even a little money was like manna from heaven. Still, his blend of ten funny and ten social critisism is pretty rare…too bad it has to be linked to Layne’s lack of same.

@Promnight: Flipping burgers at a decent ski area is not a bad way to spend a winter as a dropout. The lifestyle was pretty self-centered, though. It consumed much and contributed little.

@Tommmcatt the Wet Sprocket:
Will you name a dish after me, Prommie? Something delightful and not-at-all bitter?

I just saw the Keef brush back of Layme et. al. Dayam!

@nojo: You’ve been outed as a Socialist, as an atheist, and as a possible Nazi:

@JNOV: Other than the fact I don’t have a fucking clue what he’s saying, I’m honored.

@JNOV: OMG how did you even find that how wonderful! Socialist “Wholecaust”??? “The leader of the NSGWP turned the Hakenkreuz into alphabetic symbolism.” Ooookay also, irony is brought up in the headline and never mentioned again or does calling someone a commie and a nazi at the same time count?

@nojo: @drinkyclown: I dunno what he’s ranting about, and I’m afraid to click on any of his other links. I Googled “Stinque.” I was wondering if we had a Wikipedia page. I found a TON of references to the Zombie Bible, but this guy was just wackadoo.

@JNOV: Yeah, when his “fascinating information about symbolism” link ends in “contents-swastika.html” you pretty much don’t even need to click it to know what it’s gonna say.
This pic is pretty awesome, hey guys, godless commies caused segregation in schools because they’re racist nazis! I’m amazed this site doesn’t get into chemtrails or HAARP or whatever the crazy du jour is.

Is the Wholecaust next to the Whole Foods?

@Original Andrew:

Well there’s the title for your new recessiony discount clothing store. Hope to shit it’s not trademarked.

@Original Andrew: On cursory review, looks like he’s only trademarked the swastika.

@nojo: Holy smokes! He’s totally stolen the line, “If it smells, we’re on it,” and he yaps about the “Swastika Stinque.” Go to the bottom of the page.

@JNOV: That was one of the most incoherent things I’ve ever attempted to read.

Is Stinque accused of swastika symbolism? Nojo, you been posting Swastika’s again?

@nojo: I’m too lazy to look up the Billy Madison quote in which his teacher says he’s dumber for having read it, but it applies here.

@JNOV: I don’t see Swastika Stinque on that page, just the copied post. Is it elsewhere?

@nojo: Scroll all the way to the bottom. Or just search for the word Stinque on the website.

@SanFranLefty: Ah — I think he added it last night. (Page modified Fri, May 15, 2009 1:51:50 AM) Wasn’t showing up in Safari until I refreshed the page.

In which case…



At first I thought that site might be some kind of high-concept satire, like Betty Bowers or Landover Baptist, but it’s just so flat-out bizarre and incoherent that I can’t see how there’s any kind actual intelligence involved.

America, meet your new Faux Noos anchor.

@Original Andrew: To steal a line from tomorrow morning’s post, it’s like a Talking Heads album cover come to life.
