Ooohhh....you're one of those mockers.

Ann Althouse said...

"Mockers"? You mean people who are skeptical of mockery. Or do you mean friends of Ringo?

tim maguire said...

Ok, so you found the flaw in my coinage. I still like it. I propose "mockers" can be one of those double entendres that can mean either those who mock and those who mock those who mock.

Man, I need to start previewing my posts. At first I thought it was no morning coffee, but by now I've got to face the fact that I'm just off on the proofreading today.

There is another one in the 'Arab Street' that says Saddam is alive..

That it was a Saddam double that was hanged.. wait.. is it OK to say that word in Arabic ;)

So, LOL, now we have Truthers, Birthers, Racers, and Deathers! What's next?

"What's next?"

There are plenty of nonMuslimers.

@Rose: Don't forget knitters! You know the type: "All these current events seem to weave and loop into a neat little pattern. A little too neat if you ask me." Yeah knitters!

Rose, how about "Pressers".

edutcher said...

Well, we have race-ers, too, now.

Actually, there's been a lot of skepticism about this. The Euros are apparently getting cold feet at the idea that somebody may actually get killed achieving whatever it is we're supposed to be doing over there.

So this may not be so far-fetched. Consider this piece.

We shall see.

No, people who combine the traits of Mods and Rockers.

You do remember those, don't you?

Obama has been able to do what I would have thought was impossible.
He has made me think of Quaddaffy as a sympathetic character. I was
starting to feel that way a bit but the killing of his son and
grandchildren yesterday made me more so.

Not very sympathetic, mind you, but a bit.

Knockers...we could use more knockers.

By now, I'm sure you've heard of our President [and his #1 cheer leader, McCain] conducted a "precision air attack" killing 3 young grandchildren of the legal, recognized by the world [including the United States] leader of the people of Libya, Col. Qaddafi. Russia and China have condemned this murderous action and I join in their condemnation. Our leaders, both Democratic and Republican are baby killers--plain and simple. Now they may have disagreements as to why they enjoy killing babies, but they are united in their delight in killing babies. For example, our President prefers killing American babies by partial birth abortion: "Doc, get the head out and when the baby cries use your full medical training and a good pair of forceps to crush the brain and cut the spinal cord" but in a pinch--killing any babies/children anywhere will suffice if it helps getting me re-elected. Senator McCain, also an abortion supporter [by necessity--he spent his life impregnating women--he could never afford the child support, lol] just prefers killing babies from 20,000 feet--that way you don't see the blood and smashed bodies--much easier to sleep at night and you collect medals and pensions if you kill enough babies.

So--what would be the "correct and moral" reaction of the acknowledged leader of Libya? Kill the President's and Senator McCain's children/grandchildren? Yes--but too difficult so not cost effective. If I were advising the Colonel, I would suggest a "precision ground attack" on rich "private school" kindergartens--preferably ones with a connection to our political leaders in Washington, or at the least, our "best" universities. Start with Harvard/Yale--add a dozen others--about a 1--3,000 dead kindergarteners should balance the score and at the same time he would be doing a great service for the American people--nipping the next generation of asshole leaders "in the bud" so to speak.

PS: I see just now--Sunday, 4PM that BO's "approval" rating has moved up from 46% to 50%--the "magic" number. See, killing babies works, smile. As for McCain, Corporal Hitler served with distinction in the German army during WWI, awarded the "Iron Cross" for bravery.

That was Ringo's joke in "Hard Day's Night."

More of the same. People who think with slogans, use labels in place of arguments.

Is that a Palin endorsement?

"Hope and Change" is what you are looking for.

Yes we can.

Hope and change.

The police acted stupidly.

They bring a knife, we bring a gun.

Bitter clingers.

Yawn. I'll stop here.

No, the Lefties' strategy since '67.

The comeback kid storyline has never looked so good.

Lem said...

There were a couple of Jews that scape Auschwitz and reported to the brethrens the horrors of the camp.. only to be dismissed and not believed until hundreds of thousands of their brethren had perished in the camp they way those warning had predicted.

Nothing Obama does will ever be seen as destructive to the country until decades later.. in the light of detached historians. I predict the archives will reveal an administration we never knew.

See? You did not like what I said, but you did not have an argument against it. So you put a label on it, i.e. 'Palin endosement'.

Thank you for providing example to my observation.

If it was not his body buried at sea then who was it??? They did a very quick ID and DNA test to prove beyond doubt who it was that was killed in that raid..
