Useless

24 Feb

I’ve been trying to write a post about unions and some other shit I’ve already forgotten about for days now, but my brain only seems to be capable of forming bon mots and innuendo, so I’m going to link to an appalling column by a douchebag and discuss his douchiness.

Money shot:

Yes, I know it’s meddling in another country’s “internal affairs,” and a strike against the Libyan Air Force may be considered an act of war in some lawyers’ offices.  But if we did those things we’d save a lot of innocent lives and enhance our chances of being more effective in the future.

Actually, I don’t think there’s much else to say besides “He’s a douche.”

Also, I want to settle this here and now. My hands are quite dainty. Look how small my right one is compared to my head:

So there.

UPDATE!!!!!

Because I am a giver:

    Jesus, some people are so sensitive. You have lovely, girlish hands.

    Is that your shoulder, or are you standing in front of a mountain?

    The basic rules are easy: don’t do anything that is likely to make things worse,

    In what fucking world does “Bombing” equal “not making things worse”?

    Dude, most warmongers make do with Tom Clancy novels and Call of Duty.

    I think your ear hair is obscuring your view. It’s obviously my shoulder.

    zrm–Right? Because, you know, last time we bombed a predominantly Muslim country in order to oust a dictator, that went really, really well.

    That’s what blows my mind — WE JUST FUCKING DID THIS and it was a DISASTER. These people are so contrarian they’d rather die (or have other people die) than do anything in a humanitarian manner, ever, no matter what.

    Post a picture of your humidifier. I have a fetish going.

  7. truculentandunreliable 02.24.2011 at 22:45 #

    It really actually is a dehumidifier, which makes it even more ridiculous, because it’s winter and there’s no need to run it.

    Bon mots & innuendo? You’re a one-woman HuffPo!

    Your place must get unbearably dry on movie night.

    I am not even going to go there.

    Michael Ledeen’s history of douchiness is extensive.

    Sure, that’s a lovely hand in the photo, at least what we can see of it.

    But do you have an immensely powerful and completely-out-of-proportion thumb? With a wicked slashing razor-sharp thumbnail to disembowel misogynists?

  13. Smut Clyde 02.25.2011 at 04:15 #

    Also dainty.

  14. zombie rotten mcdonald 02.25.2011 at 10:01 #

    Looks to me like Lisa Loeb is hiding behind that hand.

    Note to self: do not get into a game of the dozens with Spengler.

    But do you have an immensely powerful and completely-out-of-proportion thumb?

    Yes. I like to hitchhike.

    With a wicked slashing razor-sharp thumbnail to disembowel misogynists?

    No, I have a terrible time growing my nails. That pinky nail is about as long as it gets.

    zrm–Just your typical cat-loving wannabe librarian. (God, I’m pathetic.

    WC, I know, right? He’s very good about lulling you into a false sense of security and then punching you in the stomach.

    Iguanodon girl- cat-loving wannabe librarian by day, misogynist-disembowling vigilantress by night.

    I hope it is a posable thumb.

  20. Spengler 02.25.2011 at 19:56 #

    I can’t believe that humidifier isn’t behind a paywall. I’d fork over $19 a month for that.

  21. truculentandunreliable 02.25.2011 at 20:07 #

    Business plan!!!!

    Just for you, Spengler, I’d throw in the air purifier for free.

    also, too…a tool, just for good measure…
