Hypocrisy! I don’t remember such condemnation from the right when the shoe was on the other foot.

Nice impersonation of Cindy Sheehan…that woman is so damn creepy. Now she wants to kill babies..oh, nevermind, she’s just indulging another lefty fantasy..hey, I can kill a baby AND a future president at the sametime! How sweet is that? Now if I could just smoke a joint the size of my living room rug, my life would be perfect. The sickness of these people is amazing. Remember when calling Clinton some name or another (scumbag, ect) was a mortal sin? These people talk about killing President Bush with all the relish of a baboon touching himself..and it’s just about as gross to watch too. I hope November isn’t a blowout.

Great Vent as always, Michelle et al.

Interesting that Garrison Keillor would claim that Republicans don’t believe in the future. Conservatives are huge supportes of the WOT. A great percentage of far-left liberals either dismiss, ignore or even overtly support the threat posed by Islamo-Fascists as part of their perverse Bush-hate cult. After all, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, even if that friend wants to kill me too.

It would seem to me that those who believe in the future the most are the ones struggling the hardest to preserve it for their children. Or perhaps, to the nihilisitic far-left, nothing they believe in is worth actual sacrifice and struggle, only empty and increasingly strident rhetoric.

Seriously, though, great episode of vent, Michelle et al. These keep looking quite pofessional and makes one wonder if the internet really can replace more than just much of the print media.

frankj on September 12, 2006 at 9:43 AM

Isn’t it a felony to make a death threat against the President? Where is the secret service? Why are these loons allowed to continue with this ignorance and hate-mongering?

Oh that’s right… the ALCU… what was I thinking…

E L Frederick on September 12, 2006 at 9:56 AM

E L Frederick,
I wonder what is the legality on that. The movie and Sheehan’s fantasy I don’t think anyone would consider actual threats. As for the “Kill Bush” merchandise, it seems to be asking other to kill Bush while not saying one is going to do it himself.

Sounds like a question for Volokh or someone else familiar with free speech issues (other than the ACLU).

frankj on September 12, 2006 at 10:03 AM

Frankj;

Never saw “King Ralph”, in fact never even heard of it until your post. I hope that the film did very poorly in the box office, which isn’t much of a consolation, but I agree the film was in very poor taste.

However, the film was billed as a comedy, however, that doesn’t forgive the US for making a film depicting such during the IRA Terrorism peroid of the UK’s history.

E L Frederick on September 12, 2006 at 10:15 AM

Peace

Mom

Sheehan

And as for Malachy? I never knew he drank until I saw him sober. He’s been sober a long time, and now he doesn’t need to drink to act silly. Oh yeah, Malachy is an ACTOR.

FYI – In King Ralph the ‘royal family'(generic term – they even changed the name to ‘Windham’ was killed in a terrible *accident* (electrocuted during a photo-shoot as I recall….) and not deliberatly targetted and murdered. Their deaths was not the primary focus of the movie – it was just a device to get a ‘slob’ on the throne.

Nevertheless the movie sucked big time. Even for a low-brow comedy it was stupid.

CrazyFool on September 12, 2006 at 10:32 AM

KILL PELOSI
KILL CLINTON
KILL MURTHA
KILL KERRY

It feels bad just to write it and NOT mean it.
They really have no hearts at all, do they?

shooter on September 12, 2006 at 10:37 AM

CrazyFool,
You can’t have a “generic” Royal family of Britain. That’s like having a movie about a “generic” capital of the United States.

King Ralph was a vicious attack on the UK.

frankj on September 12, 2006 at 10:47 AM

Grent Vent, as always, Michelle!

Unity is what America needs now, and what we had in the past. Liberal emphasis on “multiculturalism” and “diversity” has ignored unity and assimilation that gives strength to our nation.

Our real problem is not threats from foreign powers or terrorist groups – it is from within our own borders. Lack of Unity, lack of assimilation of immmigrants, and infiltration by foreign powers and interests – whether from reconquista (Mexico) or terrorists – there is our real problem.

We must return to the days when we all identify as Americans, regardless of which political party holds sway at the moment, instead of Republicans or Democrats, Left or Right.

omegaram on September 12, 2006 at 10:48 AM

These people are unbelievable. It’s also amazing that they will call this tripe a “docudrama” when it isn’t based off of actual events or information, and is just conjectural fantasy of what the filmaker hopes will happen (under the guise of saying it ‘could’ happen). Yet, they (the left) insist on calling “The Path to 9/11” fiction and not based on fact. Hello?!

Jezla on September 12, 2006 at 10:51 AM

frankj, are you trying to cause trouble over here? ;-)

EFG on September 12, 2006 at 11:27 AM

Cuz if you are, I will punch you in your stupid, liberal monkey face.

EFG on September 12, 2006 at 11:28 AM

The Vent is great, but the most interesting thing I saw was footage of Giuliani speaking on Hussein and Iraq. I don’t know how many people have actualy seen him speak; he possesses an unusual clarity and forcefulness, at least in this RNC speech.

He may be a formidable candidate in ’08, despite his weakness on conservative principles. FrankJ, it will be interesting to see how Rudy comes out in the IMAO poll link…

Jaibones on September 12, 2006 at 11:32 AM

Great Vent, as usual.

The movie looks to be very powerful and important. Due to the subject matter I’m sure it will be ignored but it looks like it deserves awards.

BTW Michelle – very nice outfit in the Vent Prequel!

KCSteve on September 12, 2006 at 12:15 PM

Guiliana was an incredible speechmaker at the convention. He really tied it all together and I am glad to see it again anytime.
As for the BDS it is getting tiresome. It is getting worrysome as well. At some point, some nut is going to act. And when he/she does, will those who have suggested and encouraged it be chagrined? Doubtful.
As always MM, insightful and informing.
Thank you.

labwrs on September 12, 2006 at 12:44 PM

Wow, the best response the Left can come up with is to bring up King Ralph???? And that’s the fault of conservatives… just HOW exactly?

I don’t recall seeing TV interviews of people saying, “oh how I wish it were TRUE!” I don’t recall elites applauding at film festivals. In fact, I remember it being ridiculed and tanking at the box office.

Whatever. I think I’ll hop over to the other thread now and get my weekly dose of Bethany. :)

Dave Shay on September 12, 2006 at 1:22 PM

As usual excellent Vent. I love the Sheehan imitation. I am tired of these clowns wishing for the death of a President. I, too don’t believe that this will stop anytime soon though. However, watch out if a Dim is in the oval office next and anyone even mention a book or movie killing them. Interesting advertisement at the end as well. Of course I doubt it would ever even be looked at by the Motion Picture Academy for an Oscar. We know Gore will win one next year for his movie of him riding in limos and flying around on private jets. What in the world are these losers going to do when W leaves office?

Catie96706 on September 12, 2006 at 1:24 PM

Your right frankj – you can’t have a generic ‘royal family’ of Britain. I’ll take your word that it was a vicious attack on the UK. I just didn’t take it that seriously – it was a just a amazingly bad comedy (in bad taste too…).

Ok – can anyone wonder about the outcry if this had been done 8 years ago with Clinton as the target?

CrazyFool on September 12, 2006 at 3:33 PM

CrazyFool,
An alternate timeline where Clinton was assassinated and Gore ruled the earth would make an awesome scifi movie.

Jaibones,
As a general leader, Guiliani is great… but he’s on the opposite side of so many core Republican issues.

EFG,
I don’t cause trouble; I end it.

frankj on September 12, 2006 at 4:38 PM

Re: Malachy McCourt

I think the oft used quote about the Palestinians is aptly paraphrased here:

There can be no peace with the Greens until they learn to love their own children more than they hate President Bush.

LegendHasIt on September 12, 2006 at 5:24 PM

What bothers me is that nobody on the left has condemned this assassination talk. Chris Matthews should have rebuked Malachy when he said what he did. When talk like this becomes respectable, it becomes more likely that some nut will act on it.

It reminds me of the Clintonistas’ claims of slander about “The Path to 9/11.” Why aren’t they threatening NBC’s broadcasting licenses for allowing this to air?

Oh, yeah. The rules of decorum and civility only apply to conservatives. Liberals can be as hateful and creepy as they want to.

Oh, how I’d love to see this blow back on them this November. They’re no longer fit to run a national party.

flataffect on September 12, 2006 at 5:40 PM

frankj, are you trying to cause trouble over here? ;-)

Cuz if you are, I will punch you in your stupid, liberal monkey face.

EFG on September 12, 2006 at 11:28 AM

I am confused, is he a liberal, a monkey or a Brit?

If you agree with Evolution, then monkey is a given. Not sure about the rest :)

Putting myself in a Brit’s shoes, King Ralph would be rawther presumptuous. I know as a Christian I took offense at The Hammer scene of Santa and the Christian kids spewing against Jews. That’s my Santa, and their Queen.

Yet I know The Hammer, and King Ralph were not written by folks who want us dead.

The kill-Bush movie is by and for people who openly fantasize about murder. Sick puppies.

And Cindy, killing babies? Why not imagine kidnapping baby George and raising him to be a pacifist? Wouldn’t that be a better dream?

Mother Cindy had best get some therapy, fast. Dreaming about killing babies is so Nazi.

entagor on September 12, 2006 at 7:54 PM

Maybe the DNC should threaten to censor and boycott theatres showing the “Kill Bush” mockudrama. Awww…who am I kidding? As far as King Ralph goes, I loved the royal demise scene, completely contrived in Hollywood by the way. The Repubs don’t have the blackness of heart make a film like that about say…John Kerry or Ted Kennedy. Um…Ted Kennedy is still alive isn’t he? I couldn’t tell from his last photo op. Sorry.

Joe on September 12, 2006 at 8:23 PM

Entagor, frankj runs a conservative humor blog called IMAO.

It’s pretty good considering who writes it. I’ve really got to give props out to him. He does an awful lot with what little God has given him. Which is inspiring to me, just as a Jerry Lewis Telethon child is. Or a Special Olympics athelete. Keep reachin’ for that rainbow, Frank!

If you do end up at his site by accidentally clicking on his name, I recomend leaving immediately. Unless you are looking for some serious laughs. In which case, I suggest you try to look up his post where he deals with someone called “The Limey.” It is very long, but consists of frankj dealing with some madly deranged British Lefty who attempts to take on frankj via e-mail. Which isn’t such a good idea, as frankj spends almost as many hours tearing fools like the limey a new one as frank does obsesively polishing his ninja throwing stars and capering about in black tights at night in his backyard after watching “America Ninja IV” yet again on his VCR.

Anyway, in all seriousness, he does have a good humor blog, and if you can find it, read about his adventures with the limey. I did and I laughed my ass off. As frankj best said it, “the thing that made the limey so much fun is that he was like a guy who after running his head full speed into a tree, would immediately get up again and do it again with with no mind for the consequences.” Basically, after each smack-down frank gave him, this limey would get up and charge full speed at frank again, with equally predictable, yet funny results.

EFG on September 12, 2006 at 8:51 PM

EFG,
The Limey was one of a kind.

When someone out of nowhere accuses you of being anti-gypsy when, in your entire life, you’ve never seen or ever said a single remark about a gypsy, how do you respond to that? That’s something that makes you think.

frankj on September 12, 2006 at 10:15 PM

Michelle,

Please. Never again use that voice you used to mock St. Cindy. Seriously… that’s creepy!

Mark Jaquith on September 13, 2006 at 12:51 AM

Where was Malkin when Coulter said this?

The quote appeared in Coulter’s book High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton (Regnery, 1998):

In this recurring nightmare of a presidency, we have a national debate about whether he “did it,” even though all sentient people know he did. Otherwise there would be debates only about whether to impeach or assassinate.

I guess “assassination chic” wasn’t such a big problem when Clinton was the president in question.

Where was Malkin when these t-shirts were being sold?

Rope. Tree Journalist. Some Assembly Required.

Oh yeah, she was ADVERTISING the shirts calling for journalists to be killed.
