Excrements in presidenting

While I don't often read Dr. Susan Block's website (it's a bit too fetish-y for my liking), her commentaries on CounterPunch are wildly funny and, as here, incisive as all hell:

With dozens of Iraqis getting killed each day, often by men in police uniforms, central Iraq is obviously boiling alive in a Sunni-Shia civil war. Of course, no one wants to declare this war, since that is a certain way to get oneself killed. Then again, going to work, getting groceries or just sitting in one's house huddled under one's bed are also almost-certain ways to get oneself killed in this once fairly peaceful country that BushCo went and *liberated* into Hell.

Then there's the "shit" between Israel and Lebanon, Israel bombing and slaughtering Lebanese innocents on a level that rivals the American bombing of Baghdad, as Hezbollah lobs Katyusha rockets into Northern Israel, killing civilians and wreaking havoc. In the past, an American president could come in and broker some kind of peace. It would be grudging and temporary, but at least it would save a few lives, humble the militants, and give the locals some breathing space. But the current American president is way too busy wriggling his middle finger up his ass, occasionally removing it to smell the situation which he then pronounces to be "shit." Since he is doing as little as possible about this, as well as the other "shit" in Iraq, not to mention the toxic "shit," ie., waste, that is choking our environment, one can only assume our Commander-in-Chief is a coprophiliac (another fetish he has in common with Der Fuehrer).

And speaking of the Der Scheisser (a nickname I do hope will catch on), don't miss Uri Avnery's excellent dissection of Bush's excrement.

Der Scheisser, LOL a perfect match for Turd Blossum. O_o Maybe he does have a scat fetish.

"Turd Blossom" is actually Karl Rove's nickname. But it fits him fine, since he's the parasitical blossom that grew on Bush's turds.

Yeah, I know Turd Blossom is Rove's nickname given to him by Bush. That was the joke. Der Scheisser makes a perfect partner for a Turd Blossom. You can't have one without the other. LOL

LOL! That's awesome!

Hey Bina, it won't let me login to the Mike Malloy message board for some reason. Could you please do me a favor and ask the mods if I've been banned for some reason?

I would if I could, but I've been put on a two-week suspension. Seems they don't like it when a truth-seeking woman fights back against certain trolls.

Check any threads you've been on that got kind of heated, you may have gotten the same treatment as me.

Bina, you got ripped off, IMO. The Radioactive troll is the one that should have gotten the axe. He's taken a grating, condecending tone thoughout the thread, as well as made several personal attacks like "Yes, I will stop referring to you as a cat. Perhaps instead I'll start referring to you as a dog, of the female variety." And "Anyway, I will stop referring to you in the feline capacity because I have realized that it is indeed insulting... to my cat."

As for me, I don't know why I can't get in. I type in my information and all that happens is that the password and username fields become blank again. I haven't seen any indication that they've banned me, though.

Hmmm. Strange that you can't get in. I have no explanations, other than the red "ink" on my last post to the troll, for my own MIA status.

And yeah, I feel I was robbed too. I have no idea why they did that to me (I've said and done worse); maybe it's their funky roundabout way of trying to entrap the troll--but regardless of their reasons, they acted inexcusably. I was publicly humiliated and got no warning. The least they could have done was post a polite reminder that was directed at neither him nor me. (Actually, they SHOULD have directed it at him--HE started it.)

Well, when I get back, I'll give them a polite reminder of my own. Assuming I'll even WANT to go back, which right now is very much in doubt. I have very little love for any board that gives right-wing trolls more leeway than progressive regulars; I left another one for that very reason.

The Right is Wrong, I have had this happen to me before. You need to delete your cookies. Sometimes a log-in cookie gets corrupted and when it does, it won't let you log in any more.

As for your suspension, 'Bina, I don't think the Mods understand how irritating it is to have someone use niceties to convey an otherwise untenable racist position and doing it while dissecting your post. You have to respond to it. Other wise, he and those reading it might think he has a valid point. You know, like racism is okay as long as it is in the law.

Maybe there needs to be more female Mods on the board or something. More people who know what it feels like to have faintly veiled sexual come-ons spewed at you as a personal attack and can recognize it when they see it.

Well, there WAS Sister Novena, but she's missing in action. And Maddie's also not around of late. I guess a paucity of women on board IS a problem, but it's not the only problem. As you say, "racism is okay as long as it is in the law"--well, same goes for sexism in trolling. As long as he's within "The Stand" and I'm judged NOT to be, things will go the troll's way. Even if it is manifestly WRONG.

Where in the Bible does it say again that "the letter killeth"?

Ah yes, here it is:

I "get" it, but clearly someone else does not.

Someone needs to clue him on sexist remarks... Gotta love this one: sexism, homophobe, racist all rolled together in one. It's people like him who can place the blame on victims of sexual assault in the name of protecting the baby and it's people like him who enable sexual harassment to continue everywhere.

I feel sorry for his CAT: such a divine creature having to waste his/her time on this pathetic fool. He should be thankful the cat does not smite him down.

Maybe we'll get lucky and the cat will do just that. They are impeccable judges of character, after all, and natural-born antifascists! Bigotry and cats cannot coexist.

BTW, I tried to clue him; hence the suspension. You'd think the mods would thank someone for doing their reprimanding for them but noooooo...
