After observing international press reporting on the incident, these same supporters are now bitterly attacking the media for its "unfair" pro-Obama bias and for deliberately "confusing" the meaning of al-Zawahiri's message.
I don't know the Arabic for "Oh boo-hoo, nobody loves us." So I'll take CTB's word for it.

Hey, guess what? Florida decided today to not be like Arkansas! But not all are happy, like hawt laydeez man John Stemberger:
John Stemberger, chairman of a successful drive earlier this month to pass a constitutional amendment in Florida, called the ruling "classic judicial activism" and predicted it would be reversed on appeal.
"Everywhere in the law where children are affected, the standard must always be what is in the best interest of the child," said Stemberger, an attorney in Orlando. "What is stunning to me is that when it comes to dealing with gays, that standard goes out the window. Children do better with a mother and a father"
I don't know about you, but this Stemberger dude obviously is stomping on the wrong fundie soapbox. His cross-eyed Cro-Magnon head is hella persuasive proof against the theory of evolution.
Lower-caste chicks have a mighty tough row to hoe around those parts. And Sampat Pal Devi decided to do something about it. The mother of five has formed a gang - dressed in pink and armed with sticks! - called the Gulabi. Targeting abusive men, as well as the corrupt local cops who protect them, the gang is now several hundred strong.
Where they see abuse, the Gulabi will harrangue, harrass and, if necessary, bring the hurt to husbands who beat their wives, fathers who force underage daughters into arranged marriages, and officials who prevent the poor from receiving their public grain allotment.
"We don't want donations or handouts," the Gulabi insist. "We don't want appeasement or affirmative action. Give us work, pay us proper wages and restore our dignity."
I'm not about to argue with them. They've got sticks!
[With thanks to the good ladies of Lemondrop]
... but is there any way we can arrange to make this permanent?
Anne Coulter's jaw wired shut
It's terribly unfair of me to focus entirely on the deviant sexual habits of Republicans, and ignore another facet of this vibrantly diverse party - they're also racists.
South Carolina GOP chair Katon Dawson will stand for his party's national leadership - just as soon as his whites-only country club can process his resignation.
Dawson has been a member of the restricted Forest Lake Club since 1996, and resigned in September. Coincidentally, The State newspaper had been preparing an article about the weak-chinned, impotent lush - mentioning his club affiliation - around that same time.
I'm very sorry. Sometimes I can't see the forest for the toilethomos.
P.S. - why do Southern politicians have such preposterous names?

Gay Americans are not being granted fewer rights than their straight counterparts - technically, a gay man does have the right to enter into a marriage with a woman.

In case you missed yesterday's farewell orgy for convicted felon Ted Stevens, Larry Craig stole the show:
Retiring Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho), famous, of course, for his airport men's room arrest, told the story of how he came to call Stevens "Uncle Ted." Craig said he was in a cab, on his way to the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, when he pulled up to the curb and said out loud, "Oh my, Ted's got an airport. That's neat."

Gerry Harvey is some old-ass dude who's basically the Sam Walton of Australia. Anyway, he evidently never grew out of that I *HEART* AYN RAND!!!!!1! phase that a lot of white people go through in adolescence, because he's quoted in some new book spouting this lovely bullshit about how charitable donations suck epic ballz:
"So did that million you gave them help? It helped to keep them alive but did it help our society? No. Society might have been better off without them but we are supposed to look after the disadvantaged and so we do it. But it doesn't help the society."LOL. I hope this queef gets a big bouquet of gin blossoms for Christmas this year.
I have to say, though, that "Dead Lesbian Fugitive" would be an awesome name for a band. Silver lining!

Schmuck Alert Central introduces us to Officer Art Michel of the Oakland, CA school district police force. A local photojournalist allegedly hits the cop's cruiser with her elbow, and the fat fuck goes ballistic. The video must be seen to be believed.
Abuses of police authority like this drive me insane, because - aside from being hugely douchey - they erode the respect that good cops deserve. Petty rage puppets like Ofc. Michel are an insult to the uniform.
But why is he the way he is? I suggest that Michel's anger issues stem from either:
a) impotence, orHey, look. Don't shoot the messenger. I just call them as I see them.
b) an increasingly troublesome, conflicted, repressed homosexuality
[Thanks, Boing Boing!]
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house Negroes."
As my drunk, degenerate, dear friend Wil would say, "it's on. Like a pot of neck bones."
Michelle Bachmann, who somehow managed to keep "her" huge, veiny masculine hands on "her" House seat, can't seem to make up "her" mind about Barack Obama.
Just last month, the cock-tucker told Chris Matthews that Barack Obama was "very anti-American," and called for a McCarthy-style investigation. But last night, "she" told chubby Irish alcoholic Sean Hannity that the President-elect's cabinet picks represent "more of the same."
Bachmann is really unstable. Has "she" started hormone therapy? That could explain the mood swings.

He's a hack, he's never right, he's a smug douche...
Another interesting thing about Bill Kristol is that he is much shorter and fatter in real life. Your Wonkette saw him in New Hampshire and St. Paul and were like, “Whoa hey this guy is much shorter and fatter in real life.”
I want to make babies with Wonkette.
Conservative blogger Drew McKissick, who is so fat that he beeps when walking backwards, is bitching about ongoing efforts to overturn California's Prop 8.
Now gay marriage supporters (including govt. officials such as Gov. Schwarzenegger and AG "Moonbeam" Brown) want the court to say a constitutional amendment is, well, "unconstitutional". If that's declared to be the case, then most people would be forgiven for thinking that their input means nothing.
I'm not interested in debating the case's merit. But I must remind you all that Drew McKissick is so fat that he irons his clothes in the driveway. He's so fat he sweats butter.
He's so fat he will die all alone and crying because nobody loves him

Decrying the sorry state of public discourse, the old fart rhapsodized about societies that nurtured the growth of ruling elite classes. He described Harry Truman as a helot, which is what Spartans called their slave underclass.
He has a huge boner for Douglas MacArthur, calling him "Shogun, the Mikado... a character from Shakespeare." Oh, pull your skirt down, Gore. Quoting from Mac Daddy's farewell address at West Point, he sniffed that "nobody in America gives a speech like that anymore."
At this point, journalist Andrew Gumbel had the temerity to suggest that Barack Obama is an eloquent speaker. And Gore said - are you sitting down? - “Slaves have a hard time making poetry, unless it’s got a beat.”
If you find yourself renting a full-size car from Budget, and they give you a Chevy Malibu, it's because Budget is trying to kill you, the blind spot on this piece of shit is that bad.
Prince is a tiresome little shithead who wrote a couple of cool songs like 20 years ago. But for some reason, the New Yorker wanted to know what he thought about gay marriage:
When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’ ”

As fair-minded Americans march to demand equal marriage rights for all, the ringmaster of the Fellowship Church in Dallas, TX wants to "reclaim" sex for married couples, by screwing his wife for seven days straight.
Rev. Ed Young's old lady is presumably on board with the stunt. I just hope they do it doggy style, so the poor heifer doesn't have to see that rapey, acromegalic grill of his twisted into a retard-like rictus of climax.
A Catholic priest in South Carolina has told his flock that their support of Barack Obama is sinful, and they cannot receive Communion until they apologize.
In a letter to his parishoners, Rev. Jay Scott Newman of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, SC, said, "voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exits [sic] constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil." He warned that anybody who voted for Barack Obama "should not receive Holy Communion until and unless they are reconciled to God in the Sacrament of Penance, lest they eat and drink their own condemnation."
The only other major contender for the White House was an insane old man and a shrill, stupid woman who knows nothing of the world, so parishoners could argue that no such plausible alternative existed.
"Holy Communion" is a savage Catholic ritual in which adherents believe they are literally eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Jesus Christ. The practice is one of many reasons why Catholicism is widely regarded as a gutter religion for superstitious, filthy peasants.

An epileptic monkey surely 1) could make a better ad using Adobe Premiere Elements (evidently already the software of choice in these obvious soon-to-be Clio-winning masterpieces); 2) would have better taste.
Michelle Obama is a member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee.
Okay, now we can move forward together as a nation.
The freshman hockey player at Minnesota's Augsburg College says she was attacked on election night by four large black women who noticed her McCain/Palin button. Miss Grossman refused medical attention, and reported the incident the next morning through her mother.
No word of any relevant Twitter posts yet.
I lived in New York during the massive Northeast blackout of 2003. The national news actually ran stories about how great it was that the city did not burn to the ground with looting and riots. And I remember thinking, "Is New York so bad that we actually get applause just for behaving like normal, rational people?"
I bring this up because Saudi Arabia's King Adbullah was just in New York for some "interfaith dialogue" crapola at the United Nations. And everybody from Tony Blair to the wackadoo Washington Times is falling all over themselves to point out how great it is that the king and other Muslims didn't walk out when Israeli President Shimon Peres got up to speak. They're being applauded for not behaving like total assholes.
And this dialogue, stunt, whatever you call it... it's meant to endorse a statement issued at the end of last summer's Muslim World League "Interfaith Conference," which called for a global law to punish blasphemy. In other words, they want to give religious leaders the right to criminalize and punish any speech or activity they determine to be an insult to religion. So, you know that whole Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Forget about it. Somebody's feelings might get hurt.
Look, before you get your panties in a fatwah, I'm not saying Islam is any worse than any other religion. They're all equally insane. If you're neurotic enough to need religion in your life, fine. Just keep that shit to yourself.

Welcome back, Pete!
Shit! I still owe you guys a wedding present.
You know the script by now: William Ayers, yadda yadda... Marxist... yadda yadda...Rashid Khalidi... Cut Larry some slack - even your favorite TV shows go into reruns from time to time.
But Johnson's leering meditation about the President-elect's daughters made me want to take an After School Special shower:
I do not hate or dislike Barack Obama. I give him full credit for providing his children with something his mother and father did not–a stable nuclear family. And you can tell by how the girls react around Barack that he is a good father. Despite his campaign’s misogyny, he appears to adore his daughters and they return the favor. Having been the legal guardian of my niece from the age of 10 until 16, I have some appreciation for what constitutes a healthy father-daughter relationship.Ew, right?
I honestly fear for the Vice President-elect's safety. Cheney had a man-sized safe installed in his office, and he won't let Google Earth photograph whatever sick, degrading shit it is he gets up to on weekends.
Joe, don't go alone. I'm begging you.
[Thank you, Sparklepony, for the pic!]
Remember the other day, when that great Southern statesman Paul Broun compared Barack Obama to Hitler? Good times.
Well, Broun is sorry... for the way he put it. “I regret putting it that way,” Broun told WGAC radio in Augusta. “I apologize to anyone who has taken offense at that.”
Okay, in that spirit, I would like to apologize to Rep. Broun for calling him "doughy" and "inbred." The Congressman can more accurately be characterized as a jug-eared, clog-dancing, Fundamentalist buffoon with more extra chromosomes than I have had hot dinners.
I feel better. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

Scott Eckern donated $1,000 in support of California's Proposition 8.
Congressman Paul Broun, a doughy, inbred moron from the great state of Georgia, says that under our scary new black President, "we may have a problem with... radical socialism or Marxism." Then he mentioned Hitler. Three times. "I'm not comparing him to Hitler," Brouny added. "What I'm saying is there is the potential."
Since "Republican from Georgia" is legally recognized as synonymous with "retard," I won't waste anybody's time attempting to explain here the difference between Marxism and Nazism. But hey, douchebucket, where were you when Dick Cheney and his boys ganged up to do to the Constitution what Joel Schumacher did to the Batman franchise?
This nitwit also professes a deep and abiding faith in his personal savior, Jesus Christ. And he's happy to bring it up whenever it's politically expedient.
UPDATE! Broun launched a crusade against pornography on military bases. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

"For a long time, he was in love with the Fox chief, Roger Ailes, because he was even more Murdoch than Murdoch... And yet now the embarrassment can't be missed - he mumbles even more than usual when called on to justify it; he barely pretends to hide the way he feels about Bill O'Reilly"

You know how all the rickrollin' d-bags from the just-current season of American Idol each summer have a baby with Ticketmaster at the prom and then abandon it at mid-sized arenas and state fairs around the country? Good news! The Republican party is about to do the same in Georgia!
Sen. Saxxxby Shambli$$* is in a run-off with this dude called Jim Martin, and guess what! Saxxxby's got lined up the greatest hits to come stump for him over the next three weeks: Jamakain, Mittens Romney, Rudy 9ui11iani, F*ckabee, and (maybe! oh, if only we can clap loud enough!) Governor Mooselini herself! Oh, and that asshole Newt, for the 90s nostaligia, or whatever.
*Yes, that is his real name, and here's the Cliff Notes: Saxxxby loves him some war-on-terraporn, and he's a ridiculously-monikered queef from the obvious terroristic target-hot-spot of Moultrie. He also got a shitload of Vietnam deferments for gimpy knees from playing football that have now (PRAISE JEEBUS!) been healed so that he may count jogging as a favorite form of recreation.
Well, this took less time than I had thought it would. Mark Larsen of Tampa's WWBA-AM radio did a shift in blackface the other day. Yup.
The self-styled Libertarian, who previously had name-checked a local eatery with his witty observation that African Americans waiting to vote "looked like the line for takeout at Big Tim’s Barbecue," insists that he meant no insult. It is his right to wear blackface, Larsen argues. "If Dave Chappelle can wear whiteface and make fun of white people, then I should be able to do this," he says. "The point I’m making is there’s a double standard here, and I don’t abide by the double standard."
If you'd like to discuss Mark's fascinating views, contact the station.
Also, blackface on the radio?
He'll shit on your civil rights, old Jeff will, but don't let him hear you say boo about Mormons! The crazy space church, full of wizened old desert bums who fuck children, donated more than $20 million to support the constitutional amendment. The wacky cult has, naturally, come under fire as a result.
"I am appalled at the level of Mormon-bashing that went on during the Proposition 8 campaign and continues to this day," Jeff boo-hooed. "If this activity were directed against any other church, if someone put up a website that targeted Jews or Catholics in a similar fashion for the mere act of participating in a political campaign, it would be widely and rightfully condemned."
Okay, in the interest of fairness, Jews and Catholics can all eat shit too. I don't care what your imaginary friend in the sky says about teh ghey.
And I'm right about Jeff. You just know I am.

- Nicole Wallace, the McCain aide assigned to work with Sarah Palin and with whom David Frum rakishly boasts of having once "crossed swords"
- Steve Schmidt, the McCain campaign's resident expert on damnation with faint praise, and
- Marketing and advertising consultant Mark McKinnon, a scumbag among scumbags
But for now, let's just enjoy the entertaining spectacle of sore losers and whiny bitches.
This conclusion is based on an exhaustive survey of the nation's top academics in the field of Things That Are Completely Fucking Obvious.
But the real star of the show is Cindy Jacobs. The co-founder of Generals International is an evangelical triple threat: crazy, stupid and loud. Scrub to 4:04 in the video for her set. Am I nuts, or is she a Gilda Radner character that somehow escaped the TV and got religion?

TRANSLATION: Please don't take away my committee chairmanships. Pretty please? I'll bring Krispy Kremes every morning. C'mon. It's me, Joey.
Obese, womanish conservative blogger Drew McKissick is as happy as Larry Craig in a public toilet over the passage of California's Prop 8. And he can't resist noting what he calls the "delicious irony" that increased voter turnout in minority communities helped put the measure over the top.
"Delicious irony?" Seriously, Muffin Tops? The last time I heard somebody use that phrase, it was in a conversation about Stephen Sondheim and buttsex.
The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have.Somebody call the waaaaaah-mbulance.
Before the whiny fundies were told to vacate the premises yesterday, several of them decided to take a big dump all over a few state constitutions and codes. One of these klassy upper-deckers was Arkansas Act 1, by which "unmarried couples" are now barred from adopting or acting as foster parents. It's a truly heartwarming sequel to Arkansas' own '04 state constitutional same-sex marriage ban, as it basically shouts a hearty "fuck you!" at all parent-/guardian-less kids knocking around the 45th most awesomest state in the U.S.A. to be a kid. Have fun duking it out for the filial attentions of hetero commonlaw meth addicts, you little rascals you!
I don't want to harsh my good mood right now. But you and I need to talk soon about your boys. Especially those freaks in Utah. I mean, WTF? Prop 8?
I'm telling you this as a friend. These assholes are really fucking with your rep.

This is awesome! Just don't fuck it up, okay? I mean, don't pretend that this election means as much to you as it does to people of color.
Lying conservative butter-whale Drew McKissick served up another steaming pile of untruths this afternoon. The greatest hits from his 10 Things You Should Know About Barack Obama:
Sex-Ed: As a state senator in Illinois, Obama vote to extend compulsory sex education from the twelfth grade all the way down to kindergarten. When defending himself on the issue he said it was “absolutely the right thing to do”.Sorry, Wide-Ride: This claim has been described as "simply false" by factcheck.org.
Free speech: He, and the Democrat leadership, want to revisit the “Fairness Doctrine”, (which was removed in the mid ‘80’s), that requires broadcast radio and TV stations to “balance” all opinions and be accountable to the government’s notion of equal time for opposing views. The point? To eviscerate the one place where conservatives have dominance – talk radio.Once again, wrong. Read the trades much, Fatty?
Gay rights: He supports adoption of children by homosexuals; supports allowing homosexuals to openly serve in the military; supports the repeal of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, (which defines marriage, for federal purposes, as the union of one man and one woman), and he opposes amendments to state constitutions and the federal constitution that would do the same.Uh, yeah, that's about right. And fuck you if you propose to treat gay and lesbian people as anything but full citizens.
Oh, and he closes with a dumb-fat-white-guy favorite:
Official English: Obama opposes making English the official language of the United States, saying, "Understand this: instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English…you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish."Lazy, lazy Tubby! You elided the quote. Citing provisions in some state constitutions that require legal forms and other documents be made available in a variety of languages, Sen. Obama said this is not a Federal matter. "I believe this is a States rights issue," he argued, "and those constitutions of those States ought to be respected. I do not believe it is a matter we ought to be imposing here from Washington DC."
Have fun watching the returns tonight, you waddling bag of type 2 diabetes!
That warmth you feel on your brain? That's sunshine, my friend.

I count on sites like The Conservative Outpost to get shit wrong. Take this shovelful from Drew McKissick, for example. Viewing a YouTube clip of a young mother at the Miami Obama rally, the effeminate fat fatty misreads her reaction through what I can only assume is racism.
If Obama wins, Peggy Joseph says, she won't have to work at putting gas in her car or paying her mortgage. Paying the mortgage and gassing up the car have both become very difficult for many Americans, thanks to the corrupt chicanery of the Bush cabal. So yeah, we do have to "work at" these things, more than ever before.
But Drew? He hears just another black hard-luck case begging for a handout: "Well, now we know some of the other reasons some of The One's supporters are on his bandwagon," he writes. "Free gas and mortgage payments."
Have another donut, you fat fuck. And what's with that suit? Did you just come from an audition for The Music Man?
Hundreds Flock to See Toilet Art
BERLIN (Reuters) – A public toilet in Munich which has been transformed into an has attracted hundreds of people in the first days after opening, a spokesman for the city's tourism agency said on Thursday.
Built in 1894, the toilet house was originally constructed to serve nearby households which lacked necessary facilities.
After being in use for over a hundred years, the toilets were locked up in 1992 because they were very rarely used.
"On the night we opened, around 800 people came to see our work," initiator of the museum project, Mathias Koehler told Reuters.
He said that a toilet was a great place for artistic expression because art is a form of relief in the same way that going to the toilet is.
The art exhibited is mainly graffiti often with a political theme. Examples include images of Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel flanking a urinal in the corner of the room. Four artists contributed their work to the exhibition.
Although the 70-square meter museum is only temporary, Koehler said he could not rule out making it permanent if public interest remains high.
Yup! Wanna know why? He thinks John McCain is scary.
This guy, who's basically Dr. Evil with less charisma, is worried about John McCain.

Orange County, CA's Terence Carey believes that marriage is specifically and only a union between a man and a woman. Statistically speaking, Carey - who is a staunch supporter of California's Proposition 8 - is a toilethomo.
