Kucinich Vs. Cheney…it’s a slobberknocker!

OK, so it’s not. Anyway, there was a vote on whether or not to vote on this, and I guess the Dems fought against a vote and the GOP fought for it. In the end, it was sent away to be decided on elsewhere. Politics are silly. Anyway, here’s Kucinich:

Trivializing Kucinich

Here’s an example of how the media is trying to trivialize Kucinich. Watch how gracefully he responds.

Shut the Hell up, Lou Dobbs; You’re and Idiot!

Welcome to another installment of “Shut the Hell Up, Lou Dobbs; You’re and Idiot”, the blog post where I tell Lou Dobbs to shut the hell up and call him an idiot.

On Monday, October 15, 2007, Lou Dobbs, this fine news commentator, introduced the show just like any other day: with his head up his ass. He said this of Ahnold Schwarzenegger:

The governor of California apparently can’t decide whether illegal immigration is a good idea for California or not. Arnold Schwarzenegger, we will have some help for you and a special report.

Color me interested. I wanted to know what kind of hypocrisy the Terminator was spewing.

Later, Dobbs said:

Schwarzenegger in California, he is trying to appease both the pro-amnesty lobby and the opens border lobby and the border security advocates. He’s doing quite a job of it, too.

Oooohhh…I’m all tingly. He’s about to give it to Schwarzenegger, another republican doing the same thing republicans accuse the democrats of doing: pandering. Let’s find out more!

California’s governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is, again, sending mixed messages, if you will, on the issue of illegal immigration. Governor Schwarzenegger signed a law that forbids landlords from checking whether tenants are in this country illegally.

Yet, as Casey Wian now reports the governor vetoed another legislative initiative that would have provided financial aid to illegal alien college students.

OK….what about it, Lou?

So, Schwarzenegger’s hypocrisy is that he stands up against landlords asking citizens and resident aliens their citizenship status, something that violates the right to privacy of those who obey the law, while vetoing a law that would give taxpayer money to illegal immigrants?

SHUT THE HELL UP, LOU DOBBS; YOU’RE AN IDIOT!

I’ll admit it; there are plenty of politicians trying to play both sides of the issues. There are people trying to use the immigration issue to buy votes, some of which are illegal votes. There are problems. But Lou, you’re just stirring up a fight where there is none.

And you have me agreeing with another republican, and the Guvahnator at that! Why are you doing this to me, you hateful sack of puss?

Here’s the transcript!

Shut the Hell up, Lou Dobbs; you’re an idiot.

Welcome to the new feature at the Most High and Holy Church of jaynova. Here, we will be arguing with CNN’s Lou Dobbs, telling him to shut the Hell up, and generally calling him an idiot.

On the Wednesday, October 10th, 2007 episode of Lou Dobbs Tonight, the esteemed Mr. Dobbs, this fine news commentator, spoke of the story of the Bush Administration demanding that a illegal immigrant on death row be retried. This was because of an international treaty the US signed to protect the rights of US citizens abroad. Basically, if someone is arrested in a country other than their own, they must be informed of their right to see a representative of their own country, to ensure that their rights are not voilated. Lou forshadowed the story before the commercial break:

Then we’ll have a showdown with the Supreme Court over a state’s right to execute a criminal illegal alien who brutally murdered two teenagers. But President Bush doesn’t like that. The compassionate conservative darling president. And what in the world is he thinking now? You won’t believe it.

Later, he said:

The U.S. Supreme Court today heard arguments over the death penalty conviction of an illegal alien from Mexico in the brutal rape and murder of two teenage girls in Texas.

The highly unusual case involves President Bush. The president now wants to stop the execution of the Mexican citizen, even though President Bush presided over more than 150 executions while he was governor of the state of Texas.

My response? SHUT THE HELL UP, LOU DOBBS; YOU’RE AN IDIOT. The US signed a treaty meant to protect not only foreigners in the US, but US citizens abroad. If you think that it’s OK for Texas to say that international law does not apply there, then I don’t want to hear anything from you the next time Iran decides to hold Americans against international law or when Singapore decides that it’s OK to cane the living shit out of some American because it’s the provincial police, and not their version of federal agents, that caught him spraypainting*.

Bush’s record of executions as governor has nothing to do with anything. Bush is not saying, “Let the guy off the hook.” All he’s saying is, “He was not informed of his rights, and under international law, he must be informed. Therefore, he must be retried.”

Thanks, Lou Dobbs. You’ve got me agreeing with Bush. I hate you. 🙂

*Note…I have no idea how Singapore works…this is just a hypothetical example.

Looks like I got a paying writing gig! Won’t say too much about it, but it’s a 5 minute script geared towards children, and it looks like it’ll be fun to write!

Another Kucinich Article.

Posted in Kucinich, News, Politics on 3 October 2007 by jason

This one from The Socialist Worker online. It mentions the same media blackout of all things Kucinich that I’ve been highlighting, and says:

Nevertheless, like a scorned relative who always shows up to family functions, Kucinich refuses to disengage from the Democratic Party establishment that, as Clinton and Edwards attest, tolerates his presence only with gritted teeth.

Read it. It’s good for you.
