Dear Media: Show Your Work

Well! This looks like a fun story!

[Kansas House Speaker] Mike O’Neal (R) had sent the [anti-Obama] e-mail to House Republicans citing Psalm 109:8, which says, “Let his days be few and brief; and let others step forward to replace him,” the Lawrence Journal-World reported.

The email said: “At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”.

The next line of the Psalm, which was not included in the e-mail, says “May his children be orphans and his wife a widow.”

You know what would be even more fun? Finding the fucking original email. We’d like to see the whole thing in context, perhaps even run it as a Guest Columnist post. After all, these things are more delightful — and authoritative — when you have the source material.

Problem is, after ten minutes of mad Googling, all we can find are news stories about the email, not the email itself.

Folks, include the damn source material. It’s not like there’s a paper shortage online.


Didn’t you hear? Obama is going to start rationing 1s and 0s as part of his socialist/totalitarian scheme.

Stinque geeque, or Steeque, an iPhone. Unlocked. How the fuck does that work? How can I find out? Won’t I lose my number? Will it work abroad (Europe). Please remind me as my memory is shorter than my attention span these days. I’ve been on the phone all day to Apple and Verizon and still don’t understand.

Meanwhile, Herman Cain! shows up at the Colbert campaign event in Charleston and quotes Pokemon.

Just once I want the Secret Service to cart one of these assholes away for a weekend at Guantanamo. It’s Bush’s invention, so they should have no objection. Show them the implements of torture, just like they showed prisoners the rack in Elizabethan times. Introduce them to a member of Seal Team 6. Good times.

@SanFranLefty: I think this fake campaign is as brilliant as I detested the We Are Nice march on DC. Although I suspect, on the basis of nothing, that a lot of the groundwork for OWS began there.

O hai!

Sorry I’ve been gone for a while. Work is hell. Anybody know of open Creative Project Management positions in Los Angeles give a holler you-know-where. Anyhoo, I’ll drop by more often, I promise. I miss you guys.

So, how about that Newt Gingrich, huh? Sexy beast.
