Hey trollboy, go slither back to the slimepits at the Kos or Huffpo, your intellect is showing…

Allah, could have used a content warning on this one, my two young sons and I were going through the news and didn’t see this one coming. Not amusing in the least.

Allah out.
Michelle in.
Do it before the site gets ruined.

what he, as a man, would do to a white woman.

There, that was bothering me.

Slow news day or what???

If it was Michelle Obama getting popped by John bradshaw layfield. Would you be singing the same song.

Grow up . . .

What is wrong with you, Allah, you jackass? This is a joke? I’m sick of your posts on HotAir. Eeyore my ass. You’re just a nut-job.

labwriter on October 19, 2008 at 7:14 PM

Huh ! ! What was that ?

Texyank on October 20, 2008 at 12:08 AM

Without any comment to preface this, it seems to be something the site embraces, and that’s ridiculous.

There’s a line between the humor of abruptness and an unhealthy portion of tastelessness.

If that were a left-wing, white, female candidate, demands for a denouncement would barrage McCain, and the media would cover it until November, treating it as prima facie sexism AND racism.

I loved those old commercials, and come to think of it, I never thought that race had anything to do with it, because it didn’t. But think like the English professors, look at the ‘imagery’ : a hulking black man viciously assaulting a white woman? Can’t you doubters imagine the liberals’ field day it would kick off?

allah is just giving us information, good information. We need this information.

True. We need to know about the rising levels of violent intimidation and hatred in some sectors of American society — only not the ones that are generally accused of this.

That is also true. It was extremely irresponsible to post this without comment, and all the negative comments and questions are justified, and should be answered.

Wow. Just wow. Speaking as a woman, it really did not tickle my funny bone. There was just no nuance in it to do that, no plays on words, no “elements of truth” to cause a wry grin. And I find humor lots of places–here on HA I laugh until I cry at the wit. Maybe it was my bitter clinger dad drilling into my brothers that you NEVER HIT A WOMAN. And my bitter clinger husband teaching our son the same thing. The un-nuanced “element of truth” hits too close to the unvarnished truth, in this case, to be funny.

I love HA, but this–what.is.up.

When do linebackers do that?

America should so teach many a darn good lesson, from the left, to the right, and all in between. Maybe she’s not quite dead, yet. Sick, and slowly dying, yes, but not quite gone…

Symbolism. Symbolism. Symbolism.

This is exactly how the media has treated dear Sarah.

After Barry O is elected it’s exactly how conservatives who speak up will be treated.

Barry O. will run the country & the world. The media will run your life.

This will be your future.

This will be the future of America.

Time to adapt to change.

America will no longer be a fun place if you ever cared about anything conservative. Ever.

America is about to be all about sucking in varying degrees.

You suck. I suck. But who sucks the most.

It will be “I was appalled.” “No, it’s funny.” But, he’ll never work again.” “No, it’s funny.” “But he’s dead.”

The disease known as liberalism will be deadly.

Pity the children.

By the way, you were all warned. The “applies for a job blogging for the Atlantic is HA code for”… DUCK!

Griz on October 20, 2008 at 8:00 AM

When do linebackers do that?

Reaps on October 20, 2008 at 7:36 AM

This is a great question. Did you apply your question to Tate’s video?

What was your conclusion?

Saltysam on October 20, 2008 at 8:04 AM

Oh God. I really hated this.

Redhead Infidel on October 20, 2008 at 8:26 AM

thats not funny.at all

“I have often felt a bitter sorrow at the thought of the German American people, which is so estimable in the individual and so wretched in the generality…”

GOETHE from the forward of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (which should be required reading right about now)

Redhead Infidel on October 20, 2008 at 9:15 AM

I finally get to hear a little more of the aborted interview/hack job by couric and the lefty editors and boom.
WTF????
Are you paid by obama AP?
First time I read an AP post in 3-4 months…I should have known better.
.
AP turned himself into KOS 2.0.
.
Allapundit, you’re a jackass.
I will not read another AP post ever.
.
Ed is the only reason I even bother looking here now, and I was one of the very first commenter’s registered on HA so long ago.

AMEN and thank you God for having let me live through what was the best of America. I’m really not prepared to see what’s left.

No he won’t. He’s too busy trolling around YouTube for videos of big dudes tearing up Palin and rolling on the floor p!ssing his pants in laughter.
