Pussies and Assholes.



Pussy.

What happened to this Dick Durbin? Why does the administration turn any criticism into an attack on our troops?

Durbin had said Thursday that he had never brought U.S. soldiers into the comparison in the first place, and that he was criticizing the approved interrogation methods described in an FBI memo obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

He also based his comparison on an FBI report detailing conditions at Gitmo.

[A] detainee [was] chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor, with no chair, food or water. Most times they had urinated or defecated on themselves and had been left there for 18 to 24 hours or more. On one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold.


So, instead of getting upset about the actual treatment of prisoners, we blow Durbin's comments out of proportion.






No, not Cristalino

Assholes

San Antonio Spurs for planning their victory parade prior to yesterday's game for Thursday -- the day of a potential game seven for the NBA championship.

Do you really want to piss off an opposing team, Pistons or otherwise? Announce that shit.

A sign on the greaseboard in Detroit's locker room read: "San Antonio's parade is scheduled for Thursday!!!"

San Antonio had four cases of Cristal sent into their locker room prior to the game (which isn't out of the ordinary, but do you have to have the opposing team see it? If you think it's going to psych them out, I think you are thinking of the wrong team.

Best quote about the circumstances? Rasheed Wallace, of course:
They had their Cristal ready and all that stuff, but -- hey, we're going to pop it on Thursday.

I don't know that I would call Durbin a pussy, mostly because that would be an insult to mine, you know? I would, however, call him a spineless piece of shit for even thinking about retracting his comments. Yeah, I know, he said the N-word (psst...Nazi), and that's bad, bad, bad...except, you know, when our actions actually resemble methods used by the Nazis.

And if a comparison to the Nazis is so horrible, why isn't anyone going after Randall Terry or any number of anti-choice zealots who constantly compare abortion to the Holocaust? Or is it only bad when we on the left do it?

As for the Spurs...what could I possibly say that 'Sheed hasn't already?

I'd just like to add that, after last night, I've resigned to forget the Alamo. And I don't even like basketball.

Yeah. Fuck the Alamo.

I blame Chauncey.

Maybe we can get Ozzy to go back there and piss on it again.

As for Chauncey--can we take back the MVP award from last year? Give it to Ben, maybe?
