News You Can Use

Things have been awfully dull since Anthony Weiner faded from view, but luckily today we got this intolerant rant from that noted Right-Wing Extremist Mark Halperin

Mark Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, called President Obama “a dick” on Thursday on a popular MSNBC morning show and then quickly apologized.

“I thought he was a dick yesterday,” Halperin, who also is a senior political analyst for MSNBC, said on Morning Joe, referring to the President’s conduct during his press conference.

In a possibly related development, my friend Tim coincidentally sent me this very morning a story which has perhaps the finest headline you will ever see from the BBC (I’m not sure if the article also references yesterday’s press conference)

‘Singing penis’ sets noise record for water insect

As The Man says, read the whole thing.

    Thanks for these important news stories. I’m always interested to build my vocabulary – and today’s new word is “stridulation”.

    Somebody is going to get a talking to…at least he didn’t call the dick a douche.

    I’m going to try and use it in at least one conversation, Ave.

    “The President presented his views in a very stridulant fashion during today’s presser.”

    Aw, don’t apologise, Mark! Hell, most of us have been calling him worse for…oh…quite some time now. It’s therapeutic. I mean, “dick”‘s pretty mainstream with this bunch, don’t ya think?

    Pretty damn sad when a fellow has to apologise for telling the truth, even if it was accidental.

    I’m outraged!

    Mr. President, I knew Anthony Weiner. I read his tweets. I saw his creepy man-flesh pics on the news. And you, Mr. President, are no Weiner.

    Still waiting for an apology for all those “teabagger” comments.
