The Curtain

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

LET'S FIGHT

That seems to be the republican directive toward Cabinet appointees lately. Tough talk from a bunch of yahoos who were just rolled by the President in the tax cut debacle and are positioning themselves to get rolled again on spending cuts legislation.

First they said Susan Rice was wrong for Secretary of State because of statements she made on Sunday morning talk shows that turned out to be mostly true. Now republicans are purple face mad and all lathered up over the nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense. His crime? They're making it up as they go along. Personally, I like the idea of having a decorated combat veteran in charge of the Department of Defense.

(I've never before talked about personal relationships, but I'll make an exception this once. Chuck Hagel is the same off camera as he is on camera. He's serious, independent, and Obama likes him. I think he's the perfect choice both to oversee the draw down of combat troops and simultaneously deal with severe cuts in the military budget.)

Since when does Congress get to pick the President's Cabinet? Ironically, some of the republicans crying the loudest about Hagel not being in the 'Main Stream' are the most radical right wing tea bagging nuts. They're picking a fight just to pick a fight.

Every time I think politics in Washington has hit a new partisan low, republicans take it down another notch.

I tend to agree with you blackwater48,like Digby sez, "Obviously the Republicans are having one of their patented hissy fits already, which just goes to show that they aren't about "partisanship" per se, but rather ideology, which should be a lesson to the White House. (The more centrist the WH, the further right the GOP...) And I cannot see how his being a military vet will help him with the Pentagon brass. He was, after all, an enlisted man." I thought McCain,Graham,and these other neocons were his "good buddies" at one time!

I would also like to point out that Cabinet officials IMPLEMENT White House policy. The President can dismiss anyone for not executing their purview. Government employees serve at the pleasure of the President. Think of Harry Truman and Douglas MacArthur.

Pay particular attention to the syllabus...it quite broadly damns and limits freedom of speech and of the press.

Assistant Justice Holmes' dissenting opinion wherein he stated, in part, "...every idea is an incitement" is also notable.

Yes, I believe it’s become rather obvious the primary goal of the Republican Party is to make the U.S. government dysfunctional. Their method is polarization and obstructionism, and their response to President Obama’s nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense is just the latest example of the GOP’s ongoing obstructionist goals.

The humorous thing here is that when Senator Hagel retired in 2008 Republican leaders like Mitch MCConnell praised Hagel’s “clear voice,” but now that President Obama has chosen Hagel to serve as Secretary of Defense, this same Republican Senate leader along with a slew of other Republicans are refusing to endorse him – surprise, surprise, surprise.

'Hagel has a streak of anti-Semitism in him."

Based on what evidence, Mein Fuhrer?

"We have enough filth in the White House without the obastard adding to it."

The recipient of two Purple Hearts, former Republican Senator from Nebraska is "filth"? It doesn't matter if President Obama nominated Mitt Romney, you would bash the choice simply because the President made it. You and your ilk are the most illogical people on the face of the earth.

"The Jew killing Iranians have now endorsed Hagel."

False.

"No doubt that will excite and encourage the Democrats in congress to push the nomination through."

Do you really expect people to take you seriously when you say things like this? Do you think using the word "obastard" gives people the sense that you have any amount of intelligence?

Granted, I’ve only been following politics since the days when the Bush/Cheney administration lied to the American people about Iraq’s WMDs, but my eyes are open. Perhaps, it’s your eyes that are closed and you simply don't want to own up to all of this vicious hoopla that the Republicans are creating over Obama’s nomination of Hagel for Secretary of Defense.

"Reportedly, a bill has been introduced to repeal that Presidential term limit.."

Other members of Congress who have offered similar proposals in the last twenty years include the following:

Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts (Democrat): 1995, 1997, and 1999 (all during the presidency of Bill Clinton).

Rep. David Dreier of California (Republican): 1997 (during the presidency of Bill Clinton).

Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York (Democrat): 1995 (during the presidency of Bill Clinton).

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky (Republican): 1995 (during the presidency of Bill Clinton).

Rep. Guy Vander Jagt of Michigan (Republican): 1991 (during the presidency of George H.W. Bush).

Rep. Martin Sabo of Minnesota (Democratic-Farmer-Labor): 1991 (during the presidency of George H.W. Bush).

According to our survey, not a single one of these proposals was ever so much as brought to a vote before Congress (they were all referred to committee and languished there), much less passed and sent to the states for ratification.

Finally, I don't know about ya'll but many, not all of course, Vietnam Vets are kind of wacky, John McCain, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel to name a threesome.

To this day, Vietnam is a communist country. Vietnam, using a sports term that you may not understand was an "L" for America. It is a fact, many from the Vietnam era are Ginsberg counter culture peace protestors that contributed greatly to undermining our military efforts in Vietnam. This generation is slowly moving into retirement which is where burn outs (my opinion easy I do not need to provide proof) like Hagel, McCain, and Kerry, need to be. Dude...much repect to those American's who served and died in Vietnam. I was a kid too during Vietnam and remember when a 20 year old that I had looked up too as a terrific ball player came home in a flag draped casket. Another came home in a wheel chair only to OD on drugs. The troops did not lose the Vietnam War, the politicians that caved to Dan Rather, Jane Fonda and all the other counter culture peace protestors that formed public opinion, lost the war. I highly recommend to all, contributing each month, like myself,to The Wounded Warrior Foundation.

Maximusty,

"it is well below a Vanderbilt grad like myself"

Pardon me while I'm ROTFLMFAO! You certainly didn't graduate from any university, much less Vanderbilt.

"to comment on your juvenile threads but I will address a few."

These aren't my threads. You've responded to many of my posts and you post here quite a bit. No one is buying your pretentious act.

"As I recall, I remember a TV news report showing a U.S. helo on top of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon evacuating the last few American's out of Vietnam after we decided to withdraw."

And?

"To this day, Vietnam is a communist country."

AND? There are still terrorists, does that mean we lost the war on terror?

"Vietnam, using a sports term that you may not understand was an "L" for America."

No, it wasn't. It was an "L" for the South Vietnamese.

"It is a fact, many from the Vietnam era are Ginsberg counter culture peace protestors that contributed greatly to undermining our military efforts in Vietnam."

You said "many Vietnam vets" earlier, not "many from the Vietnam era". Which is it? You also accused Chuck Hagel of being one of those people. Where is the proof?

"This generation is slowly moving into retirement which is where burn outs like Hagel, McCain, and Kerry, need to be."

How are they burnouts? You've never elaborated.

"(my opinion easy I do not need to provide proof)"

And your opinion is being dismissed for lack of proof. Are you too ignorant to support your own claim or are you afraid because you know your opinion is baseless? How do you expect anyone to take you seriously if you can't even provide support for your own opinion?

"The troops did not lose the Vietnam War, the politicians that caved to Dan Rather, Jane Fonda and all the other counter culture peace protestors that formed public opinion, lost the war."

So if the troops didn't lose the war, then how was it an "L" for America? Were the politicians fighting?

"Dude, nice vocabulary by the way, you must have attended Chatt public schools or you are a Jay Z fan. Boooo ya!"

You're a fan of the N-word. Pot meet kettle.

"Oh yea, on a lighter note, not a big Bama fan but I love it when an SEC team beats down a bunch of blue state Yankees. Notre Dame looked like a catholic school girl team. Roll Tide!"

You're actually just jumping on the bandwagon. The SEC didn't win. Alabama did. You're probably a Tennessee fan. They'll ride anyones coattails.

Jesse, you know how the game is played. In reality Senate Republicans do not give a rip about "the Jewish lobby" statements or any trumped up charges of anti-semitism. Defense Department budget cuts on the other hand...The defense industry cabal stands to lose billions over the next decade if Chuck Hagel becomes Secretary of Defense. The industry has plenty of bought and paid for puppets on Capitol Hill. So now John Cornyn and Lindsey Graham do their grinder monkey dance for the cameras. Follow the money.

"LMaO !!"

We get it. You laugh at your own lame jokes.

"Like Your "Clidious Darrow" junior lawyer routine??"

What junior lawyer routine? I'm in law school. I never acted as if I was a lawyer.

Keep trying, Princess Strap-On. Might want to pick your ass up as well so you can, supposedly, laugh it off again.

Easy's like a precocious child.

Hackneyed Easyisms:

sTUpid,

""South Carolina" has had five black male Senators including President BullSh!t before Tim Scott was appointed?"

No. Maximus' statement was worded incorrectly. The prepositional phrase "from South Carolina" should go after the subject. I addressed the statement as it was worded.

"Who would have "thunk it" besides you"

I didn't "thunk" it. Only a true idiot like yourself could even deduce that.

".... Nobody Dumbass !!"

Once again, I didn't, Thunder C U N T

Rebus_Jack_Dennis is like an obtuse cave man.

Nescient Rebus_Jackisms:

Rebus thinks

leftist punks

punks

Community college

Juco

Name-calling

punks

(He REALLY likes all of these)

One day you'll understand that words mean things. If you don't like me using the word "conjecture", then I implore you ask your WingNut butt-buddies to stop using it. If you would like me to stop asking for proof, then tell your WingNut butt-buddies to start backing up their bullsh!t. If you want me to stop calling you a troll, then stop trolling. You get the picture.

Rebus_Jack_Dennis,

"Big talk from a punk going to an online law school."

Same old one-liner, small talk from a measly-mouthed old man that whines like a bitch every time he posts and uses the same 3 insults every he makes an attempt at wit. If you're jealous, just say so. I'm still waiting for you to make a non-trolling statement here.

"Good luck with the Bar, chump."

Good luck with your incontinence and erectile dysfunction, coffin dodger.

Cry about yourself calling people names now! Or do you not have any objectivism in you?

Rebus_Jack_Dennis,

"Very objective."

And I'm the Pope.

"And you're still a punk."

See what I mean about the same insults? You're still a moron.

"Online law school."

See what I mean about the same insults? If it's not JuCo or Community College, it's online college. I attend a real-life university with buildings and classrooms!

"Where's Professor Kingsfield when you need him?"

Where's Bob the Enzyte guy when you need him?

"Bwahahahaha LMFAO"

Oh look, I can do it too. HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH !!! ROTFLMAO !!!

Maxmiusty,

"EAsy, I'm a Vandy fan."

That explains everything.

"Coitus you and your ho bag mother fo ever yo."

You're mother wears combat boots and gives blowjobs to homeless men.

"Verify that you little prick."

You mad, bro? You better check yourself before you wreck yourself. :-)

Rebus_Jack_Dennis,

I guess you need to personal ego boosts.

"Will leave Easy alone now."

Drink your Ensure and take your blood pressure meds before you hit the sack with Cheetah, Tarzan Jack.

"He's getting ready to take Torts 101 on his Acer. Bwahahaha"

Is this supposed to be funny? You're painfully lame.

sTUpid,

"I say B.S. on a weak-ass attempt to spin yourself out of an error. However you're just not up to the task DumbAss."

I say B.S. on your weak ass attempt to act as if I made an error. And you really aren't up to the task tonight, Twat Waffle.

"LMFaO !!"

It's like talking to animals.

"Yes !! .. you're more than ripe you're overripe when that passes as witty repartee in your infected ass pimple existence."

I'll take that as a compliment from a person that thinks rape jokes and "LMFAO" is witty.

Is this really all you've got, Duchess of Vibrator?

January 8, 2013 at 11:37 p.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"Over-ripe just doesn't cover your condition anymore ... Ozzing Ass Pimple is closer to the reality."

What a rebuttal ! Ass pimple jokes ! Go to rape jokes next !

This is like taking candy from a blind baby.

sTUpid,

"Maybe the judge can get you "lanced" before you explode."

I guess ass pimple jokes are your shtick.

“If you have to insist that you've won an Internet argument, you've probably lost badly."

I wasn't implying I'd won any argument. I was referring you how easy is was to make you look stupid. You might want to cite that "law" to Rebus though.

"So you can’t go “Postal” unless you work for the post office or how about this …. the UPS ??"

Are you an idiot?

"You infected “Ass Pimples” are not very quick, are you??"

More ass pimple jokes!!! Awwww, my favorite!

"You can't shame the shameless ... I have no restrictions or inhibitions ... Alinski didn't plan for me. Keep searching for the right tactics loser."

Is this your mantra or did you hear this on your self-help tapes?

"Your efforts so far are childishly funny ... Really !!"

No, seriously, this is too easy.

I've taken funnier dumps than the jokes you're attempting.

Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"I have to work with what I'm confronted with .... And your reality is all I have."

You've got it all wrong. YOUR reality is all you have. The warped, psychopathic, deranged reality that is tu_quoque.

"If I had lemons ... well you know the routine."

I don't know the routine. You'd probably try to have sex with the lemons or something. That's your style. It's weird. Everyone knows it.

"LMFDaO !!"

We all know you aren't.

January 9, 2013 at 12:17 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"I can really imagine you rising from the thrown and actually admiring your handicraft ..."

See what I mean about the warped reality of your mind? You don't even understand the simplest things or you feel that acting stupid makes you, somehow, look more comical. Then you go off and say stuff like that that makes you look deranged. What sane human being would imagine that?

"OMG !! you're a "sampler" aren't you."

This is too easy. It's not fair that I can get you to say things like this with such little effort.

"Saltines or Triscuts ... LMFaO !!"

I don't even have to do anything for you to make yourself look insane. Why do you take the bait every time?

January 9, 2013 at 12:24 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"If it feels good it is good."

That belief must come from your rapist sensibilities.

"You Fleabagger boys have such provincial sexual hangups ... don't you?"

You have no problem voicing your sexual proclivities with fruit. You're the same person talking about Chuck Hagel no being "mainstream". I don't get it. I don't even have to say anything and you automatically say the most psychopathic stuff. It works in my favor but, seriously, are your insane?

"Try again sweet cheeks !!"

Awwww, using my phrases! Precious!

January 9, 2013 at 12:34 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"Why do loser like you always want to claim they are winning ... brain chemical imbalance I'm sure."

I'd love to hear your answer. That's your thing, sweetheart.

“If you have to insist that you've won an Internet argument, you've probably lost badly."

For the second time now, I wasn't implying I'd won any argument. I was referring to how easy it is to make you look stupid. You do all the work.

You can't even understand the simplest things! Seriosuly, do you have some type of mental disorder, you big dumb animal?

January 9, 2013 at 12:38 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"How do you expect me to respond when an oozing ass pimple makes the statement that he thinks his body wastes are humorous to him."

See what I mean? You have to be insane. You're literally too stupid to insult.

"You have to agree that is a might strange revelation on your part."

It wasn't a revelation, moron! It was an insult! That's how insults work. They don't have to be true statements. They are often exaggerated and embellished for humor. Am I seriously having to explain how an insult works to another adult? You think ass pimple jokes are funny and you've asked me twice now if I sample fecal matter. You need a lobotomy!

"BTW .. You never answered ... Saltines or Triscuts?? ... LMFaO !!"

You must have Asperger's or something. There has to be something mentally wrong with you.

January 9, 2013 at 12:47 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"Man !! that will leave a mark."

Don't flatter yourself. I was being serious.

"You're so vicious you could be brought up on charges at the Hague."

Now let me try: You're so lame, you could be admitted to the amputee clinic!

"Of course you would probably call the prosecutor a "Twat Waffle"

My turn: Of course you would call the doctor an "ass pimple"!

"LMFaO !!"

I know you aren't.

sTUpid,

"I'm insane, yet you're the one acquiring his "funniest", in his own estimation, material from his body waste.... LMFaO !!"

Mind numbing ignorance. Can you read? It wasn't my "funniest" material , moron! It was an insult! That's how insults work. They don't have to be true statements. They are often exaggerated and embellished for humor. Am I seriously having to explain how an insult works to another adult? I'M SAYING THAT FECAL MATTER HAS MORE COMEDIC VALUE THAT YOUR JOKES. Do you u n d e r s t a n d now?

YOU'RE LITERALLY TOO STUPID TO INSULT. I put it in all caps so you could decipher it.

January 9, 2013 at 12:57 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"Your best response so far ... LMFaO !!"

Likewise.

"I know that you are ... that's what make you situation so sad ... LMFaO !!"

Sad...for you. That's the part you're not understanding.

January 9, 2013 at 12:59 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUPid,

"When you start explaining your own insults or jokes you know the material is great... LMFaO!"

When the person being insulted is too stupid to understand how the simplest insult works or that they're even being insulted all, you know the insultee is an ignoramus.

Your ignorance is boring. You have to be the dumbest person ever.

January 9, 2013 at 1:06 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"You do a sh!t joke, I treat it disingenuously"

And it made you look like a moron. That's what you're failing to realize. You apparently think portraying yourself as an idiot is funny. It's either psycopathy or you're the biggest ninnyhammer the world has ever seen.

"and you go bat sh!t crazy trying to explain how brilliant it was"

I did no such thing. You're grasping at straws.

"… Classic Loon .. LMFaO !!"

Yes, YOU are the classic loon. You're insane.

sTUpid,

"No !! I'm the one holding the other end of your chain"

Don't flatter yourself, sweetheart. You know who is holding the chain. ;-)

"Your arrogance and obtuse nature won't let you realize that the joke was on you"

Ohhhh, so in portraying yourself as a moron that doesn't understand insults, the joke was on me! Makes total sense... your arrogance and obtuse nature won't allow you to realize just how arrogant and obtuse you actually are.

Again, you have to be the most ridiculously stupid person on the planet. You are the joke!

January 9, 2013 at 1:16 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"It wasn't my "funniest" material"

"Of course you didn't ... LMFaO !!"

I was quoting you, dumbass. Again, of course I didn't do what you stated. Dear Sweet Baby Jesus, you are dumber than a bag hammers. You're not grasping. You're just a moron.

"I'm insane, yet you're the one acquiring his "funniest", in his own estimation, material from his body waste.... LMFaO !!"

January 9, 2013 at 1:19 a.m.
Easy123 said...

sTUpid,

"Yet I've got you're "brilliant" ass up late at night responding to my posts"

Don't flatter yourself. I stay up later than this every night.

"If you really though what you claimed was true you would feel secure enough to leave me to my own resources."

What are you talking about? I don't follow your fallacious logic. I guess the same logic doesn't apply to you, correct. I know my claims are true. I feel secure enough to confront each of your posts. I wouldn't let you get the last word anyway.

"But it's not true that's why you can't quit."

I've done this with you before. I can make you say the most insane things with one post. I enjoy aiding you in discrediting yourself and making you look utterly insane. I don't quit until you give up, poptart. Hell, I don't even have to be here for you to think about me!

"I think I'll leave you to stew in your insecurity..."

"and like the snows of yesteryear gone from this earth". I'll leave the stewing up to you, Twat Waffle.

"See you on the next page... LMFaO !!"

I doubt you'll be there until much later. You're only leaving this page because you don't have an audience and you realize how stupid you look. Oh, and I know you aren't laughing.
