"Scott Walker Compared To Jeffrey Dahmer By Wisconsin Democratic Aide Graeme Zielinski."

Yikes.

Screen shot of the now-deleted tweets here.

Scott Walker the Cannibal. Bitch Tit Mahal better watch out or he might be his next pork sandwich.

tiger said...

No charges after all the McCarthy-sim/witch hunt from the Milwaukee DA's investigation but Doyle who was up to his eyeballs in 'pay for play' got away scot-free.

Zielinski who was fired from The Journal-Sentinel for his disgusting personality traits continues to show just how vile he is.

His tweets prove that that lying isn't 'second nature' to him but 'first'.

And *this* is the person that the WDP wants as its public face.

Why am I not surprised?

tiger said...

Interesting that he tried to hide his Tweets too.

Lot of good *that* did him.

DADvocate said...

A pretty disgusting set of tweets even if you disregard the Dahmer tweet.

The left is a collection of lunatics. what else do you expect them to do?

YoungHegelian said...

Well, Zielinski would say that! He just wants to keep it on the QT that Ed Gein was DNC chair of La Crosse County!

(I just made that up, BTW)

This guy's a loose wire and needs to be replaced. For a long time now, he's hurting way more than helping.

I guess Gov. Walker really gnawed at him.

For this loathsome behavior, for a period of 1 year, this guy should be required to wear a sign that says "I'm an idiot." and be required to begin each written or verbal statement with "I'm an idiot."

Badger Pundit said...

Guess I’ll never hear back on my question to Zielinski: "So I can pin down which circle of Hell you think @GovWalker occupies, who in your eyes was more evil: Dahmer or Hitler?"

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors,” Barack Obama told a crowd in Elko, Nev.... I want you to argue with them and get in their face (sic.).”

The Great Uniter calling for his version of "civil discourse" from the dupes and sociopaths who are today's Democrats. He can make them contentious, but he can't make them smart.

Chase said...

how long have I been telling you that to be a Democrat is to be on the side of evil?

That neighbor that vote's Democrat? They might be nice, even hard working. But their basic values - no matter how nice they seem - spring from immorality and deceit. Of course Republicans can lie too - but, unlike Democrats, the majority of Republicans subscribe to better values and do not treasure deceit. There is no one who has aligned themselves with the Democrat party that can even be fully truthful.

You can see it in the lying President we have now. The lying Cabinet members. The Senate Majority leader.
It's their nature and their character. And you think it won't matter to the future of our country, the future freedoms and prosperity of your family?

How stupid are you, really?

Everybody is trying to set up tripwires.

Scott Walker for president.

edutcher said...

Sam stole mine, but it never fails how the Demos, who whine all over the place about civility if somebody dares disagree with them, always live down to what Pat Moynihan said about them.

In fact, Insty recalls what Michael Barone had to say about the way the Demos were headed.

And that was 5 years ago.

SteveR said...

Nice. I guess if he hid it, he really didn't say it. Twitter is like natural selection, it will eliminate the weak minded.

Original Mike said...

That's ridiculous. Scott Walker is way more evil than Jeffrey Dahmer.

Original Mike said...

Seriously, this guy is Communications Director for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. Why do they have any support at all in this state?

Methadras said...

Oh the leftist thuggery is here and I'm fairly sure it's here to stay. Republicans are going to have to learn to fight these unpatriotic anti-american scum using their own tactics. Once they are defeated, then they can re-elevate themselves to normalcy. Until then, get in the fucking trenches and go for the throat.

Original Mike said...

"Just remember duped ones, Hitler won over the masses for a while. Walker is no different."

Noted.

Synova said...

I don't understand tweeting.

I'm in a "finding a job" internship class and it's all... resumes are out, social media is in, expect your employer to do internet searches on you and find all your dunk college pics and political rants and moments of nastiness.

(My husband thinks this is as bad as the "c" word but...) The past tense of "tweet" is "twat."

Even if an employer has a good attitude about social media, tweeting about *work* is a no-no even stupid college students can understand.

What is this guy's problem?

garage mahal said...

When is Walker going to apologize?

David said...

Headline:

ZIELINSKI IN POOR TASTE!

Original Mike said...

"When is Walker going to apologize?"

For what?

David said...

He might want to delete the photo of Clem Zabloki that he uses on twitter. I doubt old Clem would have been amused.

David said...

"Zablocki"

Sorry Clem..

edutcher said...

I think the resume item "former WashPost, ChiTrib writer" pretty much nails it.

garage mahal said...

For what?

Among other things, hiring and rehiring people that stole money from veteran's widows. Child enticement. A total of 5 people that worked under him were charged with crimes.

Original Mike said...

Dream on.

campy said...

"When is Walker going to apologize?"

Natural selection implies death. These leftists don't die from their mental stupidity. They just need to die physically.

That's so unfair to Jeffrey Dahmer.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I dunno, Chase. Probably for as long as it takes me to disregard right-wing comments like this:

Natural selection implies death. These leftists don't die from their mental stupidity. They just need to die physically.

Yep. There's your right-wing decency, honor and ethically upstanding good citizenship.

And I was about to agree that those tweets were unfair and over-the-top - even if they weren't meant as seriously as the unenlightened utterings which unwittingly slipped from Methadras keyboard.

Talking about proving the point you set out to oppose...

Baron Zemo said...

Barack Obama is a younger David Dinkins.

He just doesn't look as good in a tux. Just sayn'

Original Mike said...

Is Methadras the Communications Director for the Republican Party?

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Chase's point was about how Republicans are just basically much more decent people, supposedly, OM. He didn't say that it was an issue of leadership. He said it was an issue of partisanship - one party being somehow comprised of more civilized values that the other lacks.

So no, I didn't feel a need to say that Methadras' supposed lack of political leadership absolves him from refraining from death wishes. He's all for the conservative cause - so I thought I'd point out to Chase that he seems to have been proven horribly wrong in less than one short hour.

Baron Zemo said...

Michelle Obama is Worf with tits. Just sayn'

But don't let the truth get in the way of a good old liberal lie.

Original Mike said...

Graeme Zielinski = Communications Director for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

Methadras = some commenter on an internet blog

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Chase = A Republican making a strong point that was so absurdly proven wrong that it makes it impossible not to point that out to him.

What role are you playing here, OM... "Communications director"? The whole point of a blog is discourse. If one of the commenters proves to do something as dastardly as what is claimed of the topic of the thread, I don't see how bringing up the issue of hypocrisy or credibility is a problem. Unless, hypocrisy or lack of credibility are impossible problems for certain people to overcome.

ALso, I was never issued the edict from John Boehner saying: Ordinary Republicans should feel free to issue as many death wishes as they want! That is great, wonderful, even! It's our LEADERSHIP that shouldn't sink to that level.

Because, you know, basic decency is only something we can or should expect of political leaders.

As you were.

I dunno, Synova. I don't know much about Madison. And I doubt I'd follow stuff like that anyway.

But the others here are trying to convince me that it's just evidence of ordinary, upstanding, civically minded behavior so I guess all's good.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

"I miss this show on Netflix, I wish I could have watched every episode. The characters in this show make it one of the best TV shows in history. Garry Shandling and crew did a great job convincing the watcher that Larry Sanders was a real late night comedian. I would rather watch Larry Sanders than Conan or Jay Leno any day of the week."

This makes me wanna BREAK OUT.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

"Larry Sanders was ground breaking in it's time with an honest look at the mostly unlikable people in television. Ironically, now the owner of this website (whose name we dare not speak) has removed the show from instant play because it's licensing agreement has expired. Come on cheapskates, pony up for ten more years so that we can feel good about not working in your industry."

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I'll agree that it was over-the-top and pretty damn inappropriate for a "communications director" either way.

But condemning it...? Yeah. That's a political act. It can be like being told: Say "uncle!"

Which I'm more than happy to do once I'm convinced that the opposition demanding that is decent enough to expect it of themselves.

It's a bit like that torture thing and conservatives. They don't want to condemn and prohibit it unless they know that their all-powerful terrorist enemies aren't bent on destroying civilized norms altogether. Certain others say that we should have a better standard, regardless. But I can see why you wouldn't want to limit your tactics until you're convinced that the people out to destroy your ideals aren't going to fairly reciprocate.

So, in a nutshell, don't say "uncle" unless the other guy's willing to avoid break your arm.

Baron Zemo said...

Larry Sanders is like Jerry Seinfeld.

Only gayer.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Synova said...

"Which I'm more than happy to do once I'm convinced that the opposition demanding that is decent enough to expect it of themselves."

I don't think you have a clue how the development of community standards works.

"It's a bit like that torture thing and conservatives. They don't want to condemn and prohibit it unless they know that their all-powerful terrorist enemies aren't bent on destroying civilized norms altogether."

It's really not like that at all.

"We won't lock you up if you stop committing crime" type argument that depends on the other guy's behavior is not a condemnation of locking people up. An argument that waterboarding is appropriate in a very narrow range of situations that depends on that situation existing is not a condemnation of waterboarding that is simply waiting upon the reformation of the terrorists.

If all the students do well so that all earn better than a C, it is not a condemnation of issuing F's.

I always told my kids... you can't control what other people do, you can only control what YOU do.

Basing your manners, behavior and opinions on what others do is, as they say, lame.

CEO-MMP said...

Are questions necessarily insults, Rit-Mo?

Be honest. You don't actually think what he said was bad now do you?

Especially since it gives you such a lovely springboard to launch a few straw men into the current.

Synova said...

Someone can "demand" better behavior from their opponents. Or they might illustrate the inappropriateness of the behavior by turning it around.

(This isn't always a bad idea because people tend to "hear" with ideological ear-muffs... Palin says "target" and it's a call to violence, Obama says "they bring a knife, you bring a gun" and it's just... normal.)

There is a great temptation to be just as bad as you're accused of being, just to show what that would really be like.

But "I'm only doing this because you did it first" is always stoopid.

Lem said...

Impulse Tweeting... its lingering effects are felt by thousands of pundits every year... an insidious rapacious urge to tweet with abandon... its triggers know no boundary... the passion of anger; envy; others, the most dangerous of all, the passion of politics.

O' Ritmo. Can you name one significant principle of conservatives you applaud?

Can you name one action of Democrats you detest?

Or do you believe leftists and Democrats are always correct, and conservatives always wrong?

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I don't think you have a clue how the development of community standards works.

Lol. Remind me of how horrible Sarah told us that Barry was for being a community organizer.

It's really not like that at all.

Paraphrasing Oscar Wilde, this sounds like the denial that dare not explain its rationale.

An argument that waterboarding is appropriate...

Has one been made? It's always an emotional appeal to how we're not like them. Where's the evidence that it works? Where's the evidence that it's not done for the feel-good purpose of retribution?

Arguments need not be emotional things. It's better when they're not.

If all the students do well so that all earn better than a C, it is not a condemnation of issuing F's.

Not sure what you mean here.

I always told my kids... you can't control what other people do, you can only control what YOU do.

Including, deciding whether the people you work with can abide by a mutually agreeable standard or not. Or any standard that is good enough for you. Yes, that decision IS within one's own control.

Basing your manners, behavior and opinions on what others do is, as they say, lame.

Opinions, yes. Manners and behaviors, no. Liberals and others who believe in reason hold to the thinking that strong ideas or good ideas can change people, and change society. Conservatives think society is harder to change.

Manners and behavior can be up to the individual, but most behaviors are social and there is little use in being/"acting" better than people who refuse to or are very slow to learn by example - especially when they think norms are more important than heroes.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Palin says "target" and it's a call to violence,

To the mentally unhinged, (who always exist), it probably is.

Obama says "they bring a knife, you bring a gun" and it's just... normal.

Because people who quote movies are probably capable of using language and thought in less crude ways. The unhinged like things simpler, visual even, like the use of crosshairs for instance.

But "I'm only doing this because you did it first" is always stoopid.

I don't believe in doing the stupid things that others do.

I believe that when are in a contractual situation, such as how two parties to a government decide to conduct their political affairs, that contractual situation always requires some degree of reciprocity in order to be effective.

When one party to that contract decides to behave dysfunctionally, there is no problem in deciding that he has violated a contractual form of power sharing and declaring, quietly or aloud, that certain repercussions might follow.

It doesn't matter how great they are. Just so long as it's clear that you feel that partnership in a contractual setting is more important.

People who live by the sword don't get to die by the pen.

I think your sanctimony is despicable. Are you denying that the mentally unhinged read into things in ways that normal people wouldn't? It doesn't mean it was intentional.

I am responding to a simple point made by Synova. If you are getting too mindblinded to follow the discussion, then be decent, and absolve yourself of any responsibility for following it cogently. Recuse yourself!!!

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Or listen to Nothing Else Matters in a major key. Yeah, that'll take your mind off things.

phx said...

Yikes is right. I can only add oh dear.

Synova said...

"The unhinged like things simpler, visual even, like the use of crosshairs for instance."

You can't possibly actually think that an unhinged person is more likely to respond to a visual with cross hairs than to the words "with a gun."

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I said what I said, Synova.

Also, were those words broadcast publicly over and over again in competitive (tough) political markets or said once at a fundraiser attended by supporters? One is meant for much broader distribution and consumption.

Also, "with a gun" is now the objectionable phrase? By that standard, every press briefing given by Bush on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now suspect. But so what? The point is not to avoid everything, just what you can.

Yes, I think that crazy people might hear just the word "gun" every day and do God knows what. I don't think that means we can't use the word gun and I don't think that means that they are somehow immune to visual cues, either. Why would they be?

I think you are just trying to pull rebuttals out of thin air.

In the meantime keeping being your usual asshole self Garage because it's something you do well and are well known for being.


Dave in Tucson said...

A perfect place to use this tag, Althouse.

Synova said...

Ritmo, *no* nutbar shot anyone at all because of an add with cross hairs on it. Your argument that a visual that is actually pretty darn ordinary is more likely to set off an unhinged person than words lacks any attempt at empirical support.

Of the unhinged prompted to violence we've actually got approximately *one* example where there is a clear connection between the instigation and subsequent murder attempt by the nutbar in question and it's "Floyd Lee Corkins II, who pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday to the Aug. 15 shooting at the Family Research Council (FRC), identified the FRC as a target by using the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which includes what it calls a “Hate Map” that features the FRC's Washington, D.C., headquarters."

So maybe it takes both the unrelenting portrayal of a person or group as evil *plus* a handy "visual" like a "hate map" to set the unhinged off.

Or maybe it just takes, you know, Jodie Foster.

I suppose she's "visual" too.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Ok fine and whatever, Synova.

I look forward to watching you coordinate many future ads for Republican candidates featuring violent tropes up to and including Mortal Kombat-style graphics. Burning and hanging effigies is sooo old school.

It must be hard to make a political case without using fear, violence and other aggressive stances that everyone - not just psychologically normal people - should have a right to enjoy! The Republican way awaits you.

/end futile conversation.

jaed said...

The vulva tumblr thing is actually reasonable, sort of. It seems that a lot of young women want cosmetic surgery to remove part of their labia, because they think they look "abnormal". The tumblr is to show that the range of "normal" is pretty large, and no, you probably aren't deformed down there and don't need to cut off portions of your parts in order not to be disgusting.

I agree it is bizarre, but it's an attempt to ameliorate something worse.

Bob Ellison said...

A priest asked the Master, "What is fate?"

The Master answered:

It is that which gives a beast of burden its reason for existence.

It is that which men in formertimes had to bear upon their backs.

It is that which has caused nations to build byways from City to City upon which carts and coaches pass, and alongside which inns have come to be built to stave off Hunger, Thirst and Weariness.

"And that is fate?" said the priest.

"Fate... I thought you said Freight", responded the Master.

"That's all right" said the priest, "I wanted to know about Freight too."

exiledonmainst said...

You know damn well Synova cleaned your clock.

Good job, Synova.

Synova said...

If you're going to claim that cross-hairs cause unhinged persons to go shoot people and *words* do not, you have to actually show that it *happened*.

You made the argument that visuals were dangerous and violent language was not because, apparently, unhinged people don't have good vocabularies.

Heck, Ritmo, even the word CAMPAIGN is referencing warfare. If you're going to pick nits about how one type of "fighting" language is so obviously dangerous and another type of "fighting" language is so benign, you need to actually provide at least a homeopathic measure of empirical evidence.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I'm sure you feel that I must know this as well as Karl Rove and Dick Morris "felt" that Nate Silver knew he'd be wrong on election night. Or whatever.

Talk about futility.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

You're changing the point. You asked who burns effigies anymore.

To which, I asked, who puts candidates in crosshairs?

Whatever the effect, it seems clear that right-wingers are bigger fans of violence and of using violent language in their political campaigns.

That says something more about them than it does about the people who choose to do the violence that they claim to want no part of.

While using talk and imagery of that very violence in how they describe their aims.

Yep, that says something about Republicans. Not Jared Loughner.

And once again, where's the response to Methadras' death wishes? This is all cool with you? "Normal" psychological response or goal?

Do let me know about your feelings regarding the more, er, "thoughtful uses of violence in politics, Synova. There seems to be a lot you wish to hide.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Heck, Ritmo, even the word CAMPAIGN is referencing warfare.

Well, it was (it sill is, but I assume you mean exclusively so, which is no longer the case). But then, conservatives seem to have a problem accepting the fact that language changes over time.

Nope. It's the simple use of symbolism. What's wrong is your persistent hatemongering. That's the only reason you frequent this blog - to spew hate.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I'll give DADvocate some time to consider his position on the appropriateness of violence in politics.

Not that he needs to first consider what his opponents' position would be, or anything.

Synova said...

Because your memory is short:

I said: "Palin says "target" and it's a call to violence,"

You said: "To the mentally unhinged, (who always exist), it probably is."

I said: "Obama says "they bring a knife, you bring a gun" and it's just... normal."

You said: "Because people who quote movies are probably capable of using language and thought in less crude ways. The unhinged like things simpler, visual even, like the use of crosshairs for instance."

There is no way to interpret this other than my saying that the two are equivalent and you arguing that they are not equivalent... that Palin will set the unhinged off on murderous sprees because there was a picture and that Obama's many violent metaphors are harmless because... words.

You can't show that anyone acted violently because of ads with "lets target these races" and cross-hairs.

On what basis do you argue that visuals set off the unhinged while words like "enemies" or "punch back twice as hard" or "they bring a knife, you bring a gun" will not?

The one example that we've got of a verifiable case where the unhinged person WAS prompted to violent action by political speech was the SPLC "hate list" of organizations that should be hated, and a "hate map" that showed the unhinged man where to find them.

(Curiously, he didn't make the SPLC's "hate crime" list the next time around either.)

If you want to say "let's tone down the rhetoric" then at least apply that to everyone and give up making stupid empty arguments about how when Obama rhetorically suggests violence that it's completely different than if Palin rhetorically suggests violence.

And no... I don't think that there is anything particularly wrong with violent metaphors in politics, not even when Obama does it, though I object to using the word "enemy".

It was, as they say, about the *hypocrisy* of a call for "civility" that excused anything Dems said because, well, they had *feelings*.

Discover some principles that aren't dependent on which side people are on.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

That's the only reason you frequent this blog - to spew hate.

I "spew" logic.

You must view it as hate because, I presume, you view your own sense of identity as a highly irrational thing.

Or maybe not. I'm open to hearing you out on your loving explanation of how you came to be the person you are, with the core beliefs that you hold.

The Daily Kos "put the bull's eye" on a lot of Democratic primaries a few years back. Ironically, Giffords was among the, er, targeted.

Synova said...

And I'm still waiting for even a homeopathic measure of empirical evidence that "let's target these races" with a visual of cross-hairs prompted ANYONE to violence.

If you just want to argue that there are unhinged people in the world and we should moderate the way we talk about opponents, then make that argument without excusing Obama speaking of "enemies" or the SPLC "hate list" complete with map.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Because your memory is short:

Whoa. Conversations evolve. Much like species and civilizations.

I said: "Palin says "target" and it's a call to violence,"

You said: "To the mentally unhinged, (who always exist), it probably is."

I said: "Obama says "they bring a knife, you bring a gun" and it's just... normal."

You said: "Because people who quote movies are probably capable of using language and thought in less crude ways. The unhinged like things simpler, visual even, like the use of crosshairs for instance."

There is no way to interpret this other than my saying that the two are equivalent and you arguing that they are not equivalent... that Palin will set the unhinged off on murderous sprees because there was a picture and that Obama's many violent metaphors are harmless because... words.


Well, we do have the unfortunate result of one of Palin's "targets" winding up shot whereas no one that Obama referred to (and was he referring to anyone specific?) winding up shot. Things like that tend to matter to the evidence-minded.

You can't show that anyone acted violently because of ads with "lets target these races" and cross-hairs.

I can still say it's a bad idea. And I can say that connies' insistence on defending it means that they have a harder time envisioning a political campaign that is based on ideas, rather than on violent appeals.

On what basis do you argue that visuals set off the unhinged while words like "enemies" or "punch back twice as hard" or "they bring a knife, you bring a gun" will not?

On the basis that you can't tell me how this language was used in reference to a single Republican candidate who was then, you know, shot.

The one example that we've got of a verifiable case where the unhinged person WAS prompted to violent action by political speech was the SPLC "hate list" of organizations that should be hated, and a "hate map" that showed the unhinged man where to find them.

Ok, so now you're admitting that the SPLC identified someone, and therefore a victim. Was the pol a right-winger?

(Curiously, he didn't make the SPLC's "hate crime" list the next time around either.)

If you want to say "let's tone down the rhetoric" then at least apply that to everyone and give up making stupid empty arguments about how when Obama rhetorically suggests violence that it's completely different than if Palin rhetorically suggests violence.


I just did. With DADvocate.

He seems to be having trouble understanding what good it would do him to agree with the proposition, though, from what I can tell.

Maybe he's one of those people that likes to think for himself, though. He must be waiting for something important before he can clarify how he determines the rightness or wrongness of his actions vis a vis political opponents, I guess.

And no... I don't think that there is anything particularly wrong with violent metaphors in politics, not even when Obama does it, though I object to using the word "enemy".

Thanks for letting us know how important violence is to your way of understanding politics. It explains a lot.

I can't imagine it's the sort of admission you'll always be comfortable with. So thanks for showing us, you know, a little bit about "who you are".

It was, as they say, about the *hypocrisy* of a call for "civility" that excused anything Dems said because, well, they had *feelings*.

Discover some principles that aren't dependent on which side people are on.


You seem to be becoming a little more, well, animated here and I'm losing your point. Can you try being a little more specific, please?

Thanks -

DADvocate said...

No - you spew lies and hate. For beginners, the "crosshairs" you refer to are not crosshairs, but registration marksM used in printing.

But, because you and other lefties want to spread lies and hate, you lie about what a registration mark is. Then you make absurd claims about the word "target" as if a mentally ill person is going to start shooting at a department store because it's named Target and has a target logo.

You lie about crosshairs, you lie about words, symbols and their meanings. You make dishonest claim concerning things about which you know little or nothing. You tell a lie when the truth would serve you better.

There's nothing you won't lie about and then you claim "logic." You care nothing for logic. It's just another term for you to distort and twist to support your lies.

Looked up ritmo segundo in Google translate. One translation is "second rate". Fits.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

No, it's not.

Obama Hitler = dangerous racist.

Well, I don't know what it is. But it's certainly not reasonable.

Bush Joker = cover of Vanity Fair.

Depends. I'm not a fan of the face paint (was that used with Bush?) but he is a bit of a towel-snapper.

Obama Joker = dangerous racist.

Again, not sure what was meant by these ridiculously pitiful photoshops. But it did seem to make him look deviously "different".

KOS "targets" = who even noticed?

Don't read them. Complain about them all you want. I'm sure they become unabashedly unhinged from time-to-time. Doesn't bother me but I have no problem pointing out that others are right to feel bothered by them if they do.

Palin "targets" = dead people.

Loughner killed six.

Let us please talk about civility in political rhetoric... or not.

Just did. Not sure my responses were as disagreeably "treacherous" or villainous as a warfare-minded political activist as yourself might have hoped. ;-) I actually agreed with you at some points, horror of horrors! ;-)

Synova said...

"I can't imagine it's the sort of admission you'll always be comfortable with. So thanks for showing us, you know, a little bit about "who you are"."

Really? Do you *read*? Do you live in the world? Do you use idiomatic English with fluency?

"Target these races" is every bit as normal in usage as "we will win this battle" or "this is the fight of our lives". Even "lock and load" is a metaphor nearly as divorced from its origins as "shoot this off to accounting" or the base word of "lunatic". None of them are any different from Obama's chosen "fighting words" and none of them are anything but ubiquitously used in political rhetoric.


Synova said...

"Loughner killed six."

And was a lefty disillusioned with a lefty politician.

Far far more likely to have been exposed to KOS, far far less likely to decide something Palin said was a good idea... but you don't care about that, do you.

It would be just as legitimate to blame video games.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

No - you spew lies and hate. For beginners, the "crosshairs" you refer to are not crosshairs, but registration marksM used in printing.

Lol! This is the funniest fucking thing I've heard all night. Palin was trying to communicate her intention to register Democratic opponents for trademarks and branding! All night long Synova's trying to convince me of the legitimacy of using violent belligerence in a political campaign, and DUDvocate goes all consumer marketing on me. LOL.

I guess you have to obsess on hyperbolic language about "lies" when you come up with something that desperately stupid.

I say stick to the computer programming, son.

Anyway, since you refuse to get specific about your feelings on that Democrat's use of "registration marks" (talk about shifting goalposts), why not tell me more about how you came to be divorced. By avoiding the topics that you couldn't get into, at least, not without just going LIAR LIAR LIAR DIRTY LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!

Get a grip, Sir.

Synova said...

"...if a mentally ill person is going to start shooting at a department store because it's named Target and has a target logo."

Heh.

;-)

Synova said...

Oh, I know it Ritmo. Violent language in politics is only totally acceptable if it's a quote from a movie.

(eye roll)

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Really? Do you *read*? Do you live in the world? Do you use idiomatic English with fluency?

I give wide leeway for the various uses of language.

I also give wide leeway for what someone might mean when they obsess on a "right" to use certain kinds of metaphors, over and over and over and over again. Especially the violent ones that you admitted were violent.

If Obama made a pattern of using violent language, then that would be a problem. Again, one-time use is different than the idea that someone needs to use violent language. That signals that they feel especially inclined to legitimize the right to resort to violence in an arena that, in this country at least, should be anything but.

Some people are more violently inclined than others. When one's language makes particular use of violent terms, that says something.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think there's a lot of evidence in psychology to disagree.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

"...if a mentally ill person is going to start shooting at a department store because it's named Target and has a target logo."

Heh.

They actually might. Why is that something to make fun of?

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Actually, I made no claims regarding use of the word "target". Synova did.

DADvocate might want to actually read the things he quotes before Synova takes to carelessly quoting him.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

The (eye roll) bit was good. I expect 13-year olds to have great mastery over such unassailable gestures as that.

At least you didn't go (stomps feet, yells "DAAAAD!" and marches off to bedroom. Slams door). Lol.

"If Obama made a pattern of using violent language, then that would be a problem."

Just wanted to admire that.

Scott Walker might have been condemned on Twitter for having a better lawyer than a gay cannibal by his ideologic opponent, but today I was blessed.

By a guy holding a cardboard sign.

He was walking my direction and displaying his sign and it was only us two on the whole block, but I still did not read his sign. I have no idea what it said.

I go, "Hi."

He goes, "Hi. Whachew up to?"

"I'm going to that corner store to buy some toilet paper."

Internally, I thought that was hilarious but gave no indication of being tickled. I stopped and leaned against a parapet and dug out my wallet. That took a moment, it was stuck back there. I removed a ten and handed it to him then proceeded along my way.

"Hey! You wanna go get your toilet paper?"

"I can handle it, thank you."

Now at some distance, "GOD BLESS YOU! AND THAT'S FOR REAL THIS TIME!"

It is almost like it was a perfectly normal, acceptable metaphor for everyone not named Sarah Palin.

The vulva tumblr thing is actually reasonable, sort of. It seems that a lot of young women want cosmetic surgery to remove part of their labia, because they think they look "abnormal". The tumblr is to show that the range of "normal" is pretty large, and no, you probably aren't deformed down there and don't need to cut off portions of your parts in order not to be disgusting.

I agree it is bizarre, but it's an attempt to ameliorate something worse.

So Ritty says he spews logic, then he says:

Except Loughner wasn't a Palinophile, was a registered Democrat who supported Obama.
He was also a dangerous nutbag who would have been locked away someplace already if his momma weren't politically connected.

Logic. Jesus, if that's what logic is passing for these days, we're better off passing gas.

He has a social disability that causes him to believe that Palin is some sort of godlike figure whose actions, beliefs or very statements cannot be criticized - or even spoken about - at all. This cult of personality is very dangerous and very stupid but it appeals to the wild and confused pagan in him. He is like a little lost boy who needs his Palin. He keeps a statue of her on his key ring and rubs it for good luck when his senses become overwhelmed and society seems too bewildering for him, which is very often.

He also thinks he's one step away from being sold into white slavery, but that's another story.

Nichevo said...

Ritmo you don't spew logic, you spew rhetoric. You are in essence a sophist. You're just trying to get over with superficial verbal fluency because, I suppose, of your contempt for your opponents and in fact your audience. As Stephen Maturin said, we must not be the prisoners of words.

And in fact I think most of us see through your ink-clouds and are not deceived. But perhaps the eel is the better metaphor, you're a slippery one for sure. In any case, what you can't and won't do is stand your ground with facts and reason.

I really can't be bothered to correct you every time you fail - your misinterpretation of "registration marks" for instance - whether willful or inadvertent. But they do not pass unnoticed. It's like the ethnic joke, which I heard with an Irishman in the key role (sorry Eire):

Paddy comes home to Molly. Look what I found! Unwraps his handkerchief, a wedding gift. Begorrah, Padeen, that looks like a piece of dogshit! Yes, acushla, I found it in the street. I was walking along and saw it in front of me. I looked and it looked like shit; I picked it up and it felt like shit; I smelt to it and it smelled like shit, very fresh; then I tasted it and sure enough, fresh shit!

And you bring it home to me wrapped in Bridie's best lace kerchief?

Well yes, dear, I wanted to see if you agreed with me.

Well, by the powers, I do!

Ah, well isn't it lucky I didn't step in it!

Ritmo, I ain't Patrick. When I see shit in the street, I just step around it and move on. I rarely consider what kind of dog, what diet, sick or well, etc., because I am not a connoisseur of shit. There are guys who will pick apart, catalog, fisk your rhetorical fallacies; I ain't that guy, not today.

But rest assured I always give you a chance to make your point for real, because I believe there's a mind in there. That said, you almost always fail. You make a great show however, I'll give you that, and you know how to inflame (as if that was worth anything). But you don't convince me. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

I always prefer to think of you as evil rather than stupid. Im sure that's how you'd rather have it. But correct me if I'm wrong.

That is downright Cedarfordian! I recall a post of his (several perhaps) where he likened Palin to a "totem goddess." It would be easy to find for comparative purposes.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

And as stupid as saying that vegetarians are like Hitler in their vegetarianism, Chick-weenie.

Nichevo, if you had the guts that Synova did, you'd actually raise a substantive point or two to debate. But instead, you just post a long-winded anecdote about nothing, proclaim your hard-headed ideological obstinacy - sprinkled with some choice vulgarities, Manicheaism and insults, and run away. That's impressive.

If you weren't such a gutless toad, you'd actually voice a specific objection or two.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

It's funny seeing how superficial Chick-weenie can get.

Nichevo said...

My God, Ritmo, do you dream that I care what *you* think of *me*?

Synova is for some reason willing to make the effort. I suppose it speaks to her noble nature. I don't pretend to a noble nature. I merely have certainty that your arguments are not worth addressing. Your trying to turn black into white on the subject of the Fight Club Democrats under the leadership of Chicago Way Obama is about as predictable as sunrise at dawn.

Oh, I would do it on a bet, but I haven't had enough coffee yet and I wish to enjoy the remains of my brunch without being nauseated. if you didn't like the Irish joke, just consider that I have learned that you don't mud wrestle with a pig.

CEO-MMP said...

In other words, Ritmo of Montana has nothing to bring to the table.

Yawn.

C'mon, sweetie--you can do better. I have faith!

The fact remains--you just bleated out a talking point, that is that Palin is responsible for Crazy Jared shooting a buncha people.

And the fact remains, Crazy Jared didn't like Palin. Crazy Jared was an Obama supporting democrat who was crazy (hence, you know, Crazy Jared) and mad at someone in particular.

Since you can't seem to attack the issue with the intellectual honesty you mock others for supposedly not having--what's the point of interacting with you at all, except for the joy brought by pointing and mocking?

You're like Inga, only not as intelligent, or Cedarford without the civility.

God! At least Methadras will give you a straight answer and address and issue, no matter how over the top you might find his comments.

You sir--you sir are nothing but a giant puffy partisan, fit only to carry water and puke talking points.

Wake me up when you decide to actually address an issue. I know you can do it, I've seen it. I know you can interact in an intelligent logical manner, I've seen that too.

But this...this does no one any favors my friend.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Drivel.

I haven't heard that much false pretense since Buckley discarded his Mid-Atlantic boarding school accent long enough to defend segregation.

But at least he could address substance, which you can't.

Drivel.

Nichevo said...

But let's humor you and engage. A perfect example of your sophistry, not to mention hypocrisy, is to accuse me of vulgarity. For one thing, literally, Tu quoque, you're another; you do it all the time, and if anyone calls you on it you call them squares. For another thing, the vulgarity was strictly in the context of the anecdote.

As for the question of insults, let me teach you a piece of etiquette of which you could not help but be ignorant: a gentleman cannot be insulted by the truth.

At this point I have to assert the Malcolm X rule: throw a rock into a pack of dogs, and the 1 that yelps the loudest is the 1 you hit.

Nichevo said...

If you had any concern about substance or issues, ritmo, you might consider addressing the original topic of the thread. But we know that you won't do that.

CEO-MMP said...

Drivel.

What a lovely term. And so very general in your usage.

In other words--you bring nothing to the table, and are only here to disrupt.

Tell me, RitMo of Montana, do you get paid to disrupt these threads or does your little appendage just chubby up?

O Ritmo Segundo said...

At least Methadras will give you a straight answer and address and issue, no matter how over the top you might find his comments.

Oh, really? Then where did he go? It seems that defending his death wishes was the last thing he wanted to do. Packed up and left proverbial Dodge just as soon as offense was appropriately taken to his violent yammering.

Good to know that you can provide as much drivel as Nichevo. For a moment I was worried that he'd feel peerless and alone in that.

Apparently the "morning after" walk of shame for you guys involves picking up the scraps left over from the substantive discussion. Feelings of shame, regret, and exclusion, and you didn't even get to participate. You yakkers are like the girlfriends who call up the girl who got laid and excitedly ask her how it went. "Well, girlfriend! He's a jerk, anyway!"

Jealous dweebs.

I guess you'll try to find a way to enjoying your "sloppy seconds" however you can get them.

I know it sucks to miss the big party, but you'll get over it - the same way a kid who arrived too late to be taken to the amusement park does.

CEO-MMP said...

Aww, Ritty...that's so mean!

You called us dweebs. I might cry.

Maybe Methadras has a life? Maybe he went out for the evening or went to bed, maybe it's a beautiful Sunday morning in (I think he lives in) San Diego and he'd much rather be outside in the sun than sitting at his computer arguing with a true blue turd of a moron like you?

Really now--you can't say that because someone isn't on the innertubez 24/7 just waiting to reply to you that they're afraid of you...can you? Are you really that self absorbed?

C'mon pally. You're better than this. I know you are--I've seen you do it. Hell, I've been involved in conversations with you when you did.

Well, thanks. But Synova already did.

It's Nichevo who seems hell-bent on replaying it - I mean, other than the parts that we actually debated.

I don't know why he's doing this. Should I just say good day and leave it at that? I'm tempted to, but I guess I find his long, post-hoc soliloquies more bewitching than I suppose I should.

CEO-MMP said...

Ritmo, a couple of things:

1. Your whole sloppy seconds thing is bullshit. I posted here on this thread last night. Then I had better things to do...that didn't include arguing with you.

2. I have better things to do this afternoon as well. Please don't take my absence as some sort of sign that I'm afraid of you or some other bullshit like that.

3. (yeah I know, I said a couple, consider this a bonus freebie)...you'd do well to air yourself out a bit as well. Take the dog for a walk or climb on top of your wife (or whatever it is you climb on top of).

Enjoy whatever sunshine you can find today. My dogs are agitating for a walk.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Peace, CEO. I need to get out, too. I don't know why I'm having such a stuffy weekend... maybe it's the weather, the gray skies, the long wait before an equally gray but much more revelry-filled and arousing (if physically and gastronomically challenging) St. Patrick's Day weekend. But your advice is good and simple enough. I'll do my best to do it.

And if not now, then the extended week away (and closer to San Diego) in a few weeks should do it.

Cheers -

Nichevo said...

Really, Ritmo, sloppy seconds? There's vulgarity and then there's vulgarity; this is the latter.

But see, you can learn. I have taken the consistent position that you are not worth the effort to engage; you have finally figured out that you are being mopped the floor with and have seized this ink-cloud of a premise (though the sky is blue here too) to disengage.

Good choice. Though Cedarford usually just bugs out without another word once I have crushed him; he knows his Jewish master. You go the other way and lay down some rodomontade first. Both have their attractions for me, as long as I see your face-saving accompanied by the sight of your backs.

Nichevo said...

In hindsight, Ritmo, this has been a waste of time entirely, except for the wholesome pleasure of stomping you. I suppose your crushing is just my vengeance for having been obliged to plow through this whole thread composed mostly of your, good word, drivel. So by all means, go in peace; and silence.
