“Did somebody call me?”

- Jimmy Carter, entering Marc Jacobs SF.

saint kansas on June 6, 2006 at 10:17 AM

Is San Francisco still a part of California? That city sure has some weirdo’s.

Wade on June 6, 2006 at 10:21 AM

Michelle in a belly shirt! I’ve died and gone to heaven!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on June 6, 2006 at 10:28 AM

Uh, yeah. What Dread Pirate Roberts said. What was Michelle talking about? Er, like, politics or something.

I need to go lie down. Maybe a cool glass of lemonade.

Professor Blather on June 6, 2006 at 10:52 AM

Most of the idiots who wear the Che images probably dont know who he really was.

Castro’s executioner and a cold blooded murderer. He had a special window placed in his office so he could witness the ongoing executions at the prison he ran. Once said to have slit the throat of a 11-year old boy who objected to the execution of his father.

Yes. Quite a hero he is. Maybe Hollywood should make a movie about his exploits. I’m sure Johnny Depp would be more then happy to protray his hero….

On the other channel they will problably make Che out to be some sort of hero…

CrazyFool on June 6, 2006 at 11:02 AM

Maybe Hollywood should make a movie about his exploits.

Well, they are, starring Benicio Del Toro and directed by Clooney devotee Steven Soderbergh. According to IMDB’s plot outline: “An epic about Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara, who fought for the people.”

Barf.

I call them “Che-tards.” I tuned into the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards recently and there was the drummer of Jack Black’s band wearing his Chetard shirt. Great wardrobe choice for a kids’ show. “Hey, I used to execute kids your age!”

saint kansas on June 6, 2006 at 11:18 AM

I’m convinced most of the people who wear this crap have no idea what they’re really supporting. It’s more of a look at me ma! As for Hollywood – I really hate to know what they think outside of their actor/actress professon. It’s getting harder and harder to watch these guys when you know what they stand for on the inside.

Johnny Depp has got to be kidding with the Che gear. Why is it that people who earn millions of dollars and live a life of privlege sport gear of people who made a living of taking prosperity and liberty away from the little guy?

EEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWW. That last image…! Hey, I’m eating here!
I agree with all above. You certainly do have to be a full blown idiot to pay 55 bucks to have Ms. Rodham’s image emblazoned on your chest. (I’d like to have Michelle’s T-shirt though!)

A fool and his money…..

San Fran: Worst residence ever.

Jim Treacher on June 6, 2006 at 1:44 PM

Awesome vent once again Michelle.

Paul C. on June 6, 2006 at 1:53 PM

Great Vent Michelle!

Your commentary and reporting on Marc Jacobs, the Fashion Industry, and San Francisco is again, right on. Every time you hit the mark on issues that never makes it into Main Stream Media (MSM). (Big surprise……..don’t hold your breath for MSM to cover these type of events, or if they do they would probably portray the Marc Jacobs display as an outburst of patriotism!).

The San Francisco area is populated with people who would, in my opinion, rather declare the area they inhabit as “nation free” or an “open city” without any national affiliation. This view is consistent with complaints directed to acts of common patriotism and support for radical liberal postions – including sanctuary for illegal aliens.

It is entirely possible that a significant majority of people in the San Francisco area may more closely identify with Aztlan than the United States of America in the next 20 years if current trends continue – especially on illegal aliens. (Perhaps along with Los Angeles).

At what point do we as a nation recognize that UNITY is vastly more important that diverstiy and multiculturalism? At what point do we recognize that the foundations of our great country are based on social grouping held together by common values and language? At what point do we recognize that assimilation and identification as an American Citizen is a requisite part of the United States of America’s continued prosperity and survival?

Our worst enemy may be within our own borders – just as it was during America’s most bloody war – the Civil War. Now is the time to recognize extreme liberal propaganda as subversion. Now is the time to call your Representative and emphasize that Amnesty is not in the United States, or your best interst.

Really, is SF still part of the United States? Makes one long for that earthquake that will slid SF into the Pacific. [Berkeley too!!]

Does this burka make my ass look fat?
Does this headscraf make my eyes really stand out?

Defector01 on June 6, 2006 at 2:13 PM

I agree with your earthquake comment, docdave. Wonder if they’d call for the National Guard THEN!

And Defector01: There are women whose looks would definitely improve if they’d only try wearing a burka.
Cindy Sheehan, Cynthia McKinney, Barbara Boxer, and my fave,
Ms Rodham.

Nancy Pelosi in a headscarf. Talk about eyes standing out!

dbdiva on June 6, 2006 at 2:23 PM

WARNING: DEMOCRATS IS TRYING TO STEAL GOP PLATFORM.

Their strategy is to blame Bush on the failure of the border and blame Bush on the amnesty bill. Then they tie Bush with GOP and blame GOP for the problem.

FOX is starting to have more of those Democrat spokespersons on their news program to blame the immigration problem on GOP by blaming Bush first. It is OK if they let some one knowledgeable from GOP to speak for the GOP conservatives. But they are skillful enough to invite only dumb bells to speak for GOP! It is bad…situation RED!

Is that a result of Hillary dining with Murdoch?

easy87us on June 6, 2006 at 2:32 PM

Wearing a t-shirt with a hammer and sickle next to Hillary’s name? Talk about hate couture.

Vanya on June 6, 2006 at 2:37 PM

As opposed to 99% of the liberal clothes Vanya?
Hypocrisy anyone?

Defector01 on June 6, 2006 at 3:01 PM

Wearing a t-shirt with a hammer and sickle next to Hillary’s name? Talk about hate couture.

Vanya on June 6, 2006 at 2:37 PM

Vanya, it’s ok for Jacobs to call Bush the “worst president ever” and for lots of the left wearing shirts that promote thugs/killers etc but not a shirt that shows Hillary’s communistic leanings? Puhlease, every time Hillary talks about “the greater good” (right out of a Pravda press release) it makes me want to scream. The fact is most people, even on the left don’t look deep enough into what Hillary says and does to realize shes more communistic/socialist then anyone McCarthy ever caught.

Creed on June 6, 2006 at 3:04 PM

I don’t wear such clothes. The thing about Michelle is, she can dish it out, but she just can’t take it. She engages in all sorts of name-calling, then gets indignant when people do it to her. That’s hypocrisy.

Vanya on June 6, 2006 at 3:06 PM

Vanya – I would call it ‘Truth Culture

Just think of Hillary’s ‘Health Care plan’ and ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’. The hammer and sickle fit right in.

CrazyFool on June 6, 2006 at 3:10 PM

Great vent, Michelle.

What you say is true. While I do not see too much of it here in NYC now (but, summertime has not begun yet), last year many people were wearing Che gear, Che tatoos (some of you might remember my earlier post on this about a girl who flashed her breasts to her boy friend in midtown Manhatten to show off her Che tatoo on her left breast). Many see Che as a romantic hero righting wrongs, going against the “man,” so to speak. And during Che’s motorcycle ride, he did see much poverty and people hurting. But we must remember that he wanted to spread revolution throughout the Americas and the Caribbean along with Fidel. Even some of his lieutenants complained about his true motives and methods and they were sentanced as traitors and sent to La Cabana, or death. One of my former employers is a Cuban exile. She told me about the ways of Fidel and Che. It is not a pretty story.

Concerning kaffiyeh wearers, Michelle, I wear my Kaffiyeh from time to time about my shoulders and sometimes on my head when tilling the soil in my garden or even at the beach. I do so from time to time, as it is my heritage, and to deal with hot weather. Not all of us wearers of the kaffiyeh are radical chic, or terrorists.

AND I KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT SUGGESTING THAT, MICHELLE. :-D

Sadly, it has indeed become a symbol of the radical chic, just like Che-gear. Its original, practical purpose has been perverted as a sign of solidarity. Indeed, there is nothing wrong with feeling for people who are indeed down trodden, starving, etc. But, to side with those whose only answer is a devotion to dictatorship, terrorism, and the creating and nullifying laws at a whim is inexcusable.

Multiculturalism? I am very tired of that word, as well. It is sandpaper on the wood surface of our still great nation. The problem is NOT someone wanting to wear some garb from the country of their birth, the problem is the idea that America must resemble THEIR country of origin, an idea enforced by some of our civil-self-servants who want to be absorbed by the international community, who want to be reelected by someone’s cousin, who think it is cool to have a UN APC block their driveway until the crew has finished their cafe latte.

Coming to America means adapting AND adopting American ways, not visa versa.

Indeed, when ever I hear the word “multiculturalism,” I reach for Preparation H (or perhaps it should be Preparation L?)

And finally, Michelle, thanks for wearing that belly T-shirt! You certainly are a babe!

BTW-Bryan, about your not getting credit for a report you filed here on this blog. Well, many of us go through life not getting the credit we deserve at times. Indeed, about a month ago, I posted a reply in defense of Michelle against a commentor who felt that Michelle was not being honest enough or is exaggerating situations (something like that, I cannot remember where it is in the Archives) but, I did not get credit or thanked for defending Michelle. I think that those of us who are lucky enough to be commentors here recognize your excellent writings.

The fact that you have Michelle for a boss, that you are part of her team, tells me that you have received the highest compliment of all.

The False Dervish on June 6, 2006 at 3:17 PM

Hillary has no future until she dropped Bill.

That is the entire bottom line, whether she believes it or not.

easy87us on June 6, 2006 at 3:21 PM

When one walks through a barnyard and sees a cow, one would be a fool to call it a chicken. It should be called a cow.

When one walks through the political/social landscape and sees a socialist, it would be foolish to refer to them as anything but a socialist. Thus, the use of a well known socialist emblem in association with the name of a well known socialist is simply calling a cow a cow.

ztep86 on June 6, 2006 at 3:22 PM

Vanya, since you do not wear such clothes no one can?
If I wore a shirt with Che on it that said “Cubas mass murderer” would that be “Hate couture”?
I would say it was truth. He murdered a lot of people in his cleansing, just like the North Vietnamese murdered a lot of their people, and Hitler killed a lot of jews etc. Hillary has proved time and again that she believes that a socialist government is the answer to all the worlds ills. So a shirt with a picture of Hillary and the communist symbol is not hate. It is a representation of Hillary’s point of view. It could also be considered “speaking truth to power”
Someone posting a “worst president ever” sign that huge in his store is being hatefull.

Wyrd on June 6, 2006 at 3:33 PM

You know, I’d be a bit more impressed with these people if they had the courage to do this in EVERY store. The fact that they put it only in the San Fran branch is simple cowardice.

It’s the Dixie Chicks redux: pretending to speak “truth to power” when you’re in front of an audience that already supports your goofy message.

Put it in every store, cowards. Put your financial bottom line at stake and spin the wheel … see how it goes over in the rest of the country. Are you too scared to voice an opinion outside of your own echo chamber?

Liberalism is cowardice by definition. Always. This is just a particularly obvious example of liberal cowardice. I’m actually embarrassed for them that they took DOWN patriotic symbols because a few anti-American leftists complained, and reacted by pandering to their crowd.

I assume if some neo-Nazi’s came by they’d plaster their front window with swastikas?

I say again: a perfect illustration of the cowardice that is liberalism. The tenets are simple: stay in your own insular little world; surround yourselves only with people who drink the same Kool-Aid; never, ever dare to have an original thought; when you decide to “speak out,” always make sure that everyone listening already agrees with you.

Cowards.

As for San Francisco – I say give them what they want. Let them secede from the union, make their own little liberal hamlet.

It would be a wonderful example for the rest of the world of what exactly happens when liberals run a country (for those of you who haven’t noticed the double digit unemployment in France, etc… )

It would be pretty amusing to watch them run the place. Especially when the figure out that someone has to work to make things happen.

A final question: if Bush is the (big caps!) WORST …. PRESIDENT … EVER … where does Carter rate? Johnson? Fillmore? Wilson? Buchanan? Liberals are too uneducated to even have an opinion on the issue.

Then again – once they understand history, once they actually have some basic education, they inevitably stop being liberals.

People can wear whatever clothes they want. They can put whatever they want in store windows. I’m not saying they can’t; I am in favor of any and all free speech (which you evidently are not). But you get outraged by people wearing images of Che, while thinking it’s OK to sport a hammer and sickle (“serp i molot”), a symbol of the death of millions. That you don’t even see the hypocrisy speaks volumes.

Vanya on June 6, 2006 at 4:06 PM

Vanya, wearing a (to some) tounge in cheek shirt compares to the acidic hate mail MM has recieved? (For a sample, pick up a copy of Unhinged by MM, enough to turn your stomach) Hillary has espoused enough socialist/communist ideas to make the ideas valid. Having your maiden name, nationality, spouse/children and appearance attacked? Sorry, that crosses the line, and is the lefts most filthy word, racist, to boot.

jcon96 on June 6, 2006 at 4:06 PM

“Worst President Ever”
The arrogance of that, preparing for Pres. Hillary…

Marvin on June 6, 2006 at 4:07 PM

Vanya, Who is outraged and being hypocritical? If someone wants to wear a Che shirt that is their right. It is also my right to let them know about Che’s murderous past.

Are you projecting again?

Wyrd on June 6, 2006 at 4:14 PM

It’s amazing that some guy in the schmatah business thinks himself qualified to opine on world events. Marc Jacobs can go back to playing dress-up. W will handle the geopolitical strategy stuff.

=====================================

There is no group, no like-minded people, no one on Earth more filled with hate than the liberal left! Why do you think they’re called loons, lunatics and moonbats?

No one — NO ONE! — is worse than Al Franken and the chief crazy of them all, Howard Dean.

And if you think about it, Hillary’s MARXIST VIEWS make quite appropriate a hammer and sickle!

ForYourEdification on June 6, 2006 at 4:48 PM

Vanya:

Out of idle curiousity – are you sincerely that unintelligent that you don’t understand the wee little difference between Depp idolizing Che and Malkin demonizing Hillary with a reference to the former Soviet Union?

Do you seriously not get it? Or are you just being obtuse on purpose? I assume no one is stupid enough to seriously not see the difference, so I’ll go with option B. Although frankly your prior posts “speak volumes” about your intellect and character.

Rather than explain the difference to you – I’ll see if you can figure it out on your own. Here’s a hint, Sparky: when you and your liberal friends call the President “Hitler,” is it your intent to glamorize Nazi fascism? Are you actually supporting Hitler’s worldview?

By your logic … you must be, right? ;)

Professor Blather on June 6, 2006 at 5:03 PM

I was going to pen an angry missive for the partially obscured naked fat protester (I spilled diet coke all over myself after swallowing an ice cube), but Michelle redeemed herself with her stylishly (is that a word?) presented Defeat Hillary shirt. Ah, summertime.

austinnelly on June 6, 2006 at 5:17 PM

Piece of Information about people like Vanya

I take it everyone knows that Ann coulter’s book GODLESS came out today. I’ve gone on amazon and barnesandnoble.com, there are like 300+ book reviews in the first few hours that it came out, almost all of them one stars written to describe Ann Coulter’s lack of compassion, calling her Mann Coulter, none of them having RED HER DAMN BOOK! Its pathetic. People like Vanya can hold their noses in the air about Ann Coulter’s hate and then pull garbage like this

Defector01 on June 6, 2006 at 5:22 PM

Defector:

That IS impressive that all those silly libs not only ran out and bought the book (cha-ching!) but already finished it and reviewed it all in one day? Even assuming they’re all unemployed, that’s some dedication! (Heh)

I wouldn’t worry about Coulter: every time a Vanya clone pulls an intellectually dishonest stunt like that, Coulter sells another 10 books. Somehow I think she’ll do okay with this one, too. The goofballs at Amazon are just proving her point.

Now back to Ernesto “The Dude” Guevara. The fact that leftists like this guy is HILARIOUS: after all, he was a totalitarian communist terrorist. Wait a sec … maybe liberals should like the guy! Anyway, tons of funny stuff about him that liberals don’t know, but the best is this stuff culled from Wikipedia. The dude would have NUKED the U.S. if he had his way, and got his only combat would just like John Kerry – by shooting his own dumb ass:

——————————–
“During the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion, Guevara did not participate in the fighting, having been ordered by Castro to a command post in Cuba’s westernmost Pinar del Rio province where he was involved in fending off a decoy force. He did, however, suffer a bullet wound to the face during this deployment, which he said had been caused by the accidental firing of his own gun.

Guevara played a key role in bringing to Cuba the Soviet nuclear-armed ballistic missiles that precipitated the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. During an interview with the British newspaper Daily Worker some months later, he stated that, if the missiles had been under Cuban control, they would have fired them against major U.S. cities.
———————————–

A liberal hero?

Mmm-kay.

Professor Blather on June 6, 2006 at 5:32 PM

A little more info on Vanya’s hard-line communist hero. The funniest (saddest?) part is Guevara’s own quote at the end. It actually explains quite about about modern not-so-compassionate liberalism:

“Che was a mainstay of the hardline pro-Soviet faction, and his faction won. Che presided over the Cuban Revolution’s first firing squads. He founded Cuba’s “labor camp” system—the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims. To get himself killed, and to get a lot of other people killed, was central to Che’s imagination. In the famous essay in which he issued his ringing call for “two, three, many Vietnams,” he also spoke about martyrdom and managed to compose a number of chilling phrases: “Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become …”

Professor Blather on June 6, 2006 at 5:48 PM

Want some satire Che shirts? Then check out
http://che-mart.com/
Hilarious stuff. Che mixed with Wal-mart. I really like the shirt with dead che and “your tax dollars at work” written underneath. Funny because Cafe-press tried to censor these shirts while keeping the regular Che ones in. I also like the one with the picture of Hitlary, (oops, Hillary) with Che’s hair. And the skull che is pretty funny too.

I fled the Bayarea (pronounced like gonorrhea or diarrhea-please spread this term!) ten years ago and I’ve been a much happier camper since.

NTWR on June 6, 2006 at 6:28 PM

Yeah, I got sick of stepping over human poo on the sidewalks all day. Funny how the libtards up there glaze over and walk right past the thousands of beggars sleeping in doorways and pooping on the sidewalk.

The future of Amerika? It’s our choice!

Let’s hope it’s not like SF.

Pablo on June 6, 2006 at 6:42 PM

Today we have a critical election in California. Busby is trying to take the seat away from GOP and she was telling illegals to vote for her without papers.

Guess where our passionate president were today? He went to New Mexico and Texas and gave a press conference to explain why his amnesty plan is not really an amnesty plan because the illegals will be awarded by going to the back of the line for citizenship. One thing he forgot to tell you is that he has not included those who are outside of the country waiting to come here legally. Therefore they are not in the line at all! He only includes those who are here waiting to be citizens! If these illegals are being put infront of those waiting to come here legally outside of this country, what do you call that? Fair and passionate?

Instead of going to California to help GOP to keep the seat from Busby, he went to New Mexico to explain his Democratic and RINO supported Amnesty plan. Who is he campaigning for?

…Michelle, I finally agree with the display. I am sorry.

easy87us on June 6, 2006 at 6:52 PM

I suppose that if the “hammer and sickle” was universally recognized as a “symbol of the death of millions” Vanya might have a point, but I don’t see it. Back before the fall, most liberals I knew saw it as a symbol of the future of all mankind. Since that didn’t really work out, they now seem to regard it as a symbol of a lost opportunity.
If all forms of socialism were discredited and in the past, I guess it would be sort of hateful to attach someone’s name to such a looney ideology, but as CrazyFool and zlep86 point out, those ideas are still very much alive in American politics.
You gotta call ‘em like you see ‘em.

CaptiousNut on June 6, 2006 at 7:37 PM

Above, Vanya said

Vanya, one of the things I notice that is missing in people on your side of the political aisle (isle?) is a sense of proportion. I’ve been a fan of Michelle’s work since 2002; I’ve never noticed her insulting the looks of people she disagreed with, nor have I ever heard or read her to use vile racial insults or stereotypes. Yet, these are exactly the types of things that are hurled at her with great regularity (case in point, the vile comments made by Alex Piranha (whatever his name was) the nancy boy from Wonkette, (oops, now I’m doing it)) So, in your opinion, because Michelle irritates people with her opinions on their policies, it’s perfectly ok for them to call her names to vile to repeat? Her indignation over being referred to in sexist and racist ways makes her a hypocrit. Using that sense of proportion it would be ok, if lets say, I was walking along and you upon taking in my manly profile, decided you didn’t like the cut of my gib; so, you come up to me and say: George Bush is the worst president ever. I smile politely, then kick you in the fork and hit you with my briefcase. Perhaps you should read over on Michelle’s blog, some of the things that have been said about her, then compare that to her comments, and then see if perhaps her indignation might be a bit understandble.

austinnelly on June 6, 2006 at 7:48 PM

The difference between the insults Michelle hurls at others and the slurs thrown at her is only a matter of degree. You don’t get to sit around calling others names and then draw an arbitrary line, saying, “It’s OK for me to call you names but what you said was over the line.” If she can’t take the heat, she should stay out of the kitchen. Or refrain from name-calling altogether; then she could be indignant.

Vanya on June 6, 2006 at 8:12 PM

You know i’m tired of hearing the libculas famous saying:
If you can stand the heat , then you should stay out of the kitchen..

Libculas = liberals are blood suckers, sucking the morals out of our country

Michelle keep showing and perambulate these libcula freaks.

alyce on June 6, 2006 at 8:43 PM

Looks like your “Marc Jacobs hearts Hillary” Gawker link is incorrect. There seems to be a “http:_//hotair.com/” (w/out the underscore) in front.

Convertacon on June 6, 2006 at 11:05 PM

It’s only a matter of degree? She mocks someones views so it’s fair game to insult her personally? So, you would be ok with me simply calling you a racist (by proxy) since you are supporting people who refer to her in that way? Whatever happened to manners, Vanya? We can’t have intellectual disagreements, arguing facts? Are you saying that your side of the aisle is stupid and unimaginative? Or just hatefilled and nasty? I’m curious Vanya; how far does your indifference to civilized discourse go? Do you think that people you disagree with should be physically assaulted? Maybe you thought the Ann Coulter pie incident was pretty funny? You’re not doing the perception of your side much good here.

austinnelly on June 7, 2006 at 12:00 AM

Vanya: “The difference between the insults Michelle hurls at others and the slurs thrown at her is only a matter of degree.”

If by “matter of degree” you mean “orders of magnitude”. A racial slur from a liberal is the same as a racial slur from a neo-Na*i. You seem to be arguing that because Michelle is a polemicist, she deserves to get hateful emails from anonymous cowards. I can’t abide by that.

Convertacon on June 7, 2006 at 12:49 AM

Vanya sez:

But you get outraged by people wearing images of Che, while thinking it’s OK to sport a hammer and sickle (”serp i molot”), a symbol of the death of millions. That you don’t even see the hypocrisy speaks volumes.

That you don’t see the difference between the two speaks volumes. Michelle’s T is not pro-Communist, where the vast majority of the Che gear is.

If you’ve got a particular problem with the Hammer and Sickle ethos, you might want to take that up with A.N.S.W.E.R. and their ilk, and not with those who are mocking it.

Pablo on June 7, 2006 at 1:02 AM

Wow, is this debate still going? True story: I crashed the “Drive Out the Bush Regime” rally last year (photos here) and I saw at least three people at the “information tables” proudly wearing hammer and sicle buttons. So, if that symbol represents the death of millions, they apparently have no problem with that. Same goes for the Che T-shirts.

Seriously folks: Speaking of T-shirts, click here for a heartwarming story of Judge v Moonbat.

saint kansas on June 7, 2006 at 6:20 AM

Vanya, you are really incapable of intellectual thought aren’t you?
Michelle can’t take the heat? Has she curled into a corner and begged, Jimmy Carter like, for every one to just like her?
Has she cried and cried about how wrong it is for her to be hated?

The only time I have seen her get pissed about the hate comments directed towards her was when a bunch of rascist idjits sent her death threats (yes Death threats) to her home and family. The same boobs found her home address and telephone number and posted it online. And WHY did these poster children for encephalitis do this? Because she DARED to post their press release ona conservative blog. A press release which had their contact information. In actually she allowed them to get their message out to more people. They took offence at the type of response they got tough, so they called her a whore who should be killed. They called her every name under the sun. But thats ok, becasue let me guesse, Liberals do not have to have any class, decorum or sense of fair play?

Seriously, I have figured you out. You are only here to piss people off. If you actually dissented with a Vent and listed well thought out reasons why you disagreed then you would be an impoortant part of the community. Instead you come here and spread feces, all in the hope of pissing off people. This says a lot about your character.
Basicly, you are not worth my time. Say something inteligent and I will be more then happy to discuss any issue with you.

MICHELLE IS THE “HEAT”, Vanya dude or Vanya honey.

Liberals can feel her 10 miles away. Turn on the “heat” means Michelle is coming after you!

BTW, WE WON IN CALIFORNIA! And won by 5%!

Here is an excerpt of the AP release:

“A former Republican congressman narrowly beat his Democratic rival early Wednesday to fill the House seat once held by jailed Randy “Duke” Cunningham, one of several contests in eight states closely watched as a possible early barometer of next fall’s vote.”

No wonder they say Bush cheated Al Gore in 2000. And Bush stole the 2004 election by 2%.

So, to the liberal press, Republican wins hair thin victory is “cheated”. If GOP wins by 2% then it is “stole” the election. If win by 5% then it is “narrowly defeated”. If GOP wins like Reagan did to Carter, then what would that be?

I think that would a 2:00 pm election. By 2:00pm EST. Carter started writing his concession speech!…LOL

I noticed that in the democratic run off for Gov. a majority of the people polled said they could not stand the negative campaigning the dems did.
So if I can understand this…
Dems rip each other apart in the primary to find out who is going to run. Afterwards all the loosers support the winner so they can beat Arnold…

Is it any wonder people are tired of politics?

Thanks for the compliments Pablo.

We have a couple of new t shirts out over at http://www.che-mart.com and released our first Spanish language one.We had so many requests from Cuban-Americans. It basically translates to “communist s**t eater”.

We have gotten some really good hatemail of late. People actually compare Che to Jesus!!!

B.

Is it just me? When I looked at the sign in the window, it looks like “WORST RESIDENT EVER.” I thought that the landlord was describing how the store was behaving.

Nope, not here just to piss people off (that is way too easy). With one exception I have presented rational arguments only to be met with more insults. Like I said, Michelle sets the tone here.

Yes, austinelly, what has happened to manners? Does Michelle exhibit good manners in her rants? I think not.

I looked and looked everywhere, but I couldn’t find your rational arguments, Vanya… Perhaps you misplaced them?
