I do not get at all why the judges liked that brown skirt made of all the little leaves of fabric. I’m watching now, and Jerrell and Stella better win! I hope they kick out Mr. “I Have IMPECCABLE Taste” Dude! What a fucking douchescrote he is!

How the fuck did douchey brown leaf skirt win!? That shit is fugly. Jerrell’s design and their execution was so much better.

I am disappointed that Kelly is out, and not Mr. “I Have IMPECCABLE Taste” Dude. Maybe they didn’t like that she didn’t take responsibility for her own failed design and tried to throw “I Have IMPECCABLE Taste” under the bus, while Blaine took responsibility for his own failure.

Colin Powell To Endorse Obama!?

Apparently, right-wing wackaloon scumbag Bill Kristol has claimed that “inside sources” tell him that piece-of-shit lying war-enabler Colin Powell is going to endorse Obama at the Democratic National Convention. The article also states that Powell spokespeople deny this. Regardless, we’ll find out soon enough.

If it is true, this could potentially shift substantial votes towards Obama. Which speaks volumes for how fucking delusional vast swaths of the American voting public are, and how quickly people forget what a pivotal role Powell played in the evil lying traitorious rush to war in Iraq and what a lying revisionist scumbag he has been since he did so:

I LOVE MY COMMENTERS!!!!!

“Jessica” says in her recent comment:

Your a fucking idiot! What the fuck do you care if somebody makes a diaper cake? Did you eat shit once thinking it was chocolate? Go right a blog about something people actually care about.

Diaper Cake!?!? That’s Just Fucking Wrong!! is one of my top ten posts of all time, as it gets about a dozen Google hits a day from people presumably searching for diaper cakes. I suspect Jessica is one of these people. Oh, and Jessica? It seems pretty clear that you do care about diaper cakes, doesn’t it? LOLZ!!!

What The Fucking Fuck!?

See if you can guess who said the following (answer inside the crack):

The idea that Obama was going to win in a blowout was always preposterous[.] * * * A big piece of this, of course, is whether white people are going to support a black guy… If [Obama] is a tall, skinny white guy named Paul Jones it’s a different story.

* * *

John McCain is a known quantity. * * * You don’t look at John and say, ‘Who the heck is he?’ he’s a veteran, he’s a guy who got pretty banged up in Vietnam. He can deal with crisis. There’s some uncertainty about Senator Obama.

* * *

The country’s still pretty divided… people may want a divided government. They want change but I’m not sure that the Democratic agenda has the support of a majority of Americans.

Love And Anger

Greg Laden has a nice post up today talking about Matthew Nisbet’s strange oblique attack on PZ Myers as an “angry, grumpy, uncharismatic male loner[] with a passion for attacking and ridiculing religious believers”. I am not going to get into that issue, however, and only want to discuss something Greg said that resonates with me:

I mention this because it seems to be part of PZ Myers philosophy of critical tolerance. It is this part of his approach that allows vehemence and compassion about the same issues and the same people.

It is really, really, really important to understand that this principle applies in a more general way. One can simultaneously be angry about perceived flaws in something and yet care about it very deeply, and even love it. The idea that expression of harsh criticism entails that one “hates” the thing one criticizes is a pernicious rhetorical trick used to discount valid criticism and marginalize the individual who brings it.

OK. I thought the other pantsuit should have won. I did agree that the skort was not a winner. It didn’t look well constructed.

I totally disagree with who was out. I thought her garment, although not very olympicish, was nice-looking and well constructed.

I thought purple dress dude should have been out. And what the fuck was the douchescrote thinking wearing a purple shirt during the runway show!?!? Fucknagle.

Sadness

The husband of someone I care for very much just died suddenly of heart failure while jogging, leaving behind her and their two young sons. I cannot imagine the depth of her pain and loss, and it saddens me greatly.

Sick-Fuck “Feminist” Sex Criminal Still Doesn’t Get It

Sick-fuck sex criminal Kyle Payne has just published a bizarre post on his blog in relation to his pleading guilty to criminal charges stemming out of his predatory behavior towards women. Apparently, he is engaged in extreme ass-covering mode to try to get his sentence reduced, including some kind of therapy and seeking character references from his community. Others are amply handling the bizarre fuckwittery of those things, so what I want to do here is address how truly fucked up his blog post is, and how it really indicates that he should be given as long a sentence as possible, and forbidden from any future contact with feminist or other women’s organizations for a long, long, long time.

All the garments were boring as shit this week. Zzzzzz…

The print fabric of the winning dress looked like a beadspread at a motherfucking Hampton Inn cheesy motel, and the silhouette was like a shit-filled diaper.

I totally fucking enjoyed how “Leathuh!” was all hammering and shit and telling everyone else to fuck off if they didn’t like it.
