Douchebag of the Day

sun_c03vwpq_t607.jpegArlington, Tennessee Mayor Russell Wiseman:

In the opinion of Arlington Mayor Russell Wiseman, President Barack Obama’s speech on Tuesday night on the war in Afghanistan was deliberately timed to block the Christian message of the “Peanuts” television Christmas special.

It seems the liberal War on Christmas has escalated ….

Wiseman made the statements on his Facebook page, where he declared Obama to be a Muslim. Only people on Wiseman’s “friend’s list” had access to the post. He has more than 1,600 friends on Facebook.

“Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch ‘The Charlie Brown Christmas Special’ and our muslim president is there, what a load…..try to convince me that wasn’t done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it….w…hen the answer should simply be ‘yes’….”

Geeze, and I thought South Carolina politicians were bad.

When contacted Thursday, Wiseman declined to comment about his Facebook posts.

“It’s ridiculous for someone to send my Facebook post,” Wiseman said. “You guys are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.”

But wait – I thought Sarah Palin said that stuff was fair game.

“You guys are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.”

um . . . . never mind

@Capt Howdy: There’s a ‘mountain to mohammad’ joke in there somewhere, but damn if I can find it.

I don’t know what he’s so upset about – everybody knows that “Real Americans” think the Peanut’s Christmas special is secularist propaganda. He must need to upgrade to WingnutOS 2.0 or something.

Either that, or he just feels that a special that’s been available on DVD for a decade is vastly more important than an announcement that will fuck up the Christmas of 30000 families. Gotta keep those priorities straight…

@al2o3cr: Wait, wait — secularist? What about Linus reading Scripture?

Sparky Schulz was a Christian — just not the modern kind.

honestly this is just to goddamed stupid for me to completely get my mind around.

meanwhile, about those 30000 families;

C.I.A. to Expand Use of Drones in Pakistan

just not the modern kind.
sorry thanks for playing. if you think the world is more than 6000 years old you are no longer a christian.

have a lovely weekend.
I am gonna miss this when I have to start working at work.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Work? Work? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

That’s what weekends are for: Catching up.

Wow, so the president scheduled his press conference to deliberately preempt a cartoon?

Do the rivers flow with liquid stoopid in Tennessee, or what?

@redmanlaw: I thought you might be interested to know that I wrote a bit of dialogue in my recent play directly inspired by you. It’s about a guy one of the characters works with, who’s mentioned in passing as always forwarding Danger Room links to his software team. Not that you’re always forwarding stuff, but without your occasional linques, I might not know about Danger Room.

@IanJ: is also pretty cool. I sent them some tips once when I was on travel from a local paper in MS about the problems the shipyards there were having with construction of the new coast guard cutters that they ran with. I think danger room may have used some stuff I sent them on Los Alamos. BTW, a lot of the work on the military “pain ray” was done down in Albuquerque.

@redmanlaw: I bought some shit from, then they offered me a free year of wired. I declined, preferring to read that sort of thing online. Does this make me a bad person?

@redmanlaw: The mailboxes in my building are tiny, and I don’t check everyday. Six days out of town last week – it was stuffed. I believe I chose correctly.

@blogenfreude: To quote Dr. Spengler, “Print is dead.”

@redmanlaw: Also, I thought you’d be interested to know — I did end up getting a GSG5 a few weeks ago. Only had it out once so far, but it’s pretty neat. I was getting all excited to bring it along to the local Friday night black-rifle nerdfest, until I discovered that it disbanded. Asked the dude at the range, and he said, “Yeah, we moved it to Sundays, and everyone stopped showing up.” Duh. Maybe move it back to Fridays?

@blogenfreude: Why would a publication like Wired even bother with print editions anymore? It’s one of the Mysteries.

@Pedonator: Wired tried to present itself as a dot-com IPO a decade ago. When everyone saw through that, the investors bailed and Conde Nast scooped it up.

@Pedonator: Dunno – I was surprised to get the solicitation. If amazon wanted to impress me, give he half off my next piece of overhyped electronic equipment.
