"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

The Falsehood Project, Particulate Cloud Number One

Jack: Donovan McNabb should punch a Motherfucker.

Landru: I think a political party is in order.

Unspoken, unspeakable internet ghost in the machine: the Punch A Motherfucker Party is born.

Good Liberal: Um, gentleman and crespucutacular yankee troglodyte, that would involve, um, violence.

Jack: Not necessarily.

Landru: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Good Liberal: John Boehner is a very bad man.

Jack: I'm always shooting first, and then scrambling around picking up the casings. Someone take this keyboard from me because I'm never going to surrender it on my own.

Ethan: If I have to listen to another fucking Christmas song while corporate soul punches my kidneys with the mailed fist of a thousand future mornings that I've already sold off for today's twenty minute lunch break...

Jack: Ethan should punch a motherfucker already.

BDR: We have these complicities. We could make the best of them. Or the worst.

Randal: Could someone please be a chaos agent? Am I asking too much?

Good Liberal: You must fight the Republican chaos, not do your own. Organize. Organize. Organize.

Jack: Hmmm. Good point. How about we organize a Mountweazel Campaign? That could be a non-violent way to punch the hell out of a certain gaggle of motherfuckers. And we could still be complicit while doing it.

Drunken goat chorus: [indecipherable]

To be fair (with the exception of Landru) I wrote about two dozen names on tiny little pieces of pulped dead tree, and just picked them out of my french peasant chapeau as I went along, filling in appropriate or inappropriate attributions on my way to "hey, let's mount a nihilartikel strike."

Except for Al from SMBIVA. I picked your name twice and failed to conjure up what I think your fake avatar would actually say. I just don't know. Damned, doomed, me is, I am.

Good liberal is digby pre-recent depression.

I assumed I was helping the Drunken Goat Chorus. That comes very, very close to my calling in life.

Randal Graves said...

I just hope there's at least a cold cut tray at the next rehearsal.

Word verification: oapence, noun, a transaction handled clumsily.

"Man, did you see Amazon UK's oapence?"

JRB said...

Speaking of the usual suspects, has anybody spotted a Charles F. Oxtrot lately? The internet hasn't been the same.

Landru said...

Woot! Singled out for a campaign of unfairness! Validation, bitchez!

Wait. Maybe I didn't parse that right.

Insignificant quibble: I don't want Randal getting all the credit for the Chaos Butterfly, but he is certainly a better butterfly trainer than I am.

Thank you for including me in good Intertoobz company, Jack.

How about drowing them in punch? No need to get one's knuckles scraped when large wassail bowls abound this time of year.
