You think you can get rid of me?

I try to go away quietly but "they" won't let me. "They" are the anonymous posters posting nutball comments on my last post. I saw them and tried to ignore them but it's hard to ignore mental illness when it's in your face. So I'm back, maybe not daily but I'm back for another limited engagement of crankiness. Buckle your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Friday, 10:00 p.m.

Hard to keep up with all the resignations:

From the family values files: Deputy Secretary of State Randall Tobias resigns after banging (allegedly) a bunch of high-priced call girls from two different brothels and getting caught. He says he only got massages. Uh huh. His wife may believe it but I don't. Tobias was the head of the US Agency for International Development and Director of US Foreign Assistance at the State Department. Sounds like he was in charge of domestic affairs.

Deputy chief of the Department of Justice's criminal division resigns because of links to Abramoff corruption scandal. Republican Congressman John Doolittle (CA) resigns committee seat after FBI raids his house as part of an ongoing corruption probe.

Republican Congressman Rick Renzi (AZ) and his wife up to their eyeballs in hinky land deals and payoffs (allegedly).

Just another day in Bushworld.

Friday, 11:00 p.m.

Good thing Stephen King or Quentin Tarantino isn't in high school creative writing classes these days.

I challeneged you in the response to the February 26 post, to come up with the alternative positions of leading Democrats on how to handle Iraq and terrorism and instead you divert to third rate scandals, ignoring the fact that the chances that there are NO Democrats (or Libertarians, Greens or Socialists for that matter) involved in any scandals anywhere else in this country of 300 million people are remote. As you have since your days at Madison, you simply seek to bore with tedious trivia and constantly miss the larger picture. You are always 100% rights; your "opponents" 100% wrong. There is no room in your world for 50-50, certainly, and not even 90-10. How your wife stands it is a mystery, and may God look over your children. They'll need all the help they can get so as not to drown in a household of negativity. We know - it's hard living in an affluent Chicago-suburb while Arabs are being "tortured" at Gitmo, but the again, maybe you'd like the Arabs to move to Illinois.

Who's more messed up - the cranky guy or the guy who hangs on every word of the cranky guy like you. I post after more than two months and within minutes you're commenting? Nothing better to do than to troll blogsites and compose lengthy comments? And by your personal references you obviously think you know me which makes this even closer to stalking. Your just another anonymous coward who has even less to do in his life than me.

As for Iraq - you say you challenged me to solve the problem. Uh huh. I'm supposed to do that in less than 1,000 words? Your Dear Leader delivers a mangled victim bleeding from every orafice along with multiple compound fractures andyou say to the doctor, "You mean you can't fix him with one pill? You really suck as a doctor." My first solution is to not listen to anything the maniac neocons who conned us into a war say. Nothing they said turned out to be true so why believe them now? You all created this hell on earth, you all said it was a war for our very existence and then sent just enough troops to fail and told everyone else "nothing to see here, just go on with your normal business, don't worry about Iraq we'll take care of it." Oops. Guess the mission wasn't really accomplished. All the Generals, all the William Buckleys all the people saying the war is lost (and it's not the troops' fault) they're all traitors?

There is no solution to Iraq. There is no three word answer like "cut and run" or "victory or defeat" or "war on terror." We can't stay and we can't leave ever according to Cheney et al. otherwise that would be a victory for the terrorists - you know the ones we created by going into Iraq. The reality is that we are going to leave Iraq and when we do it will be bad. So we might as well leave sooner rather than later. We had a civil war to settle our differences maybe they need one too. A full-blown confligration. It also doesn't matter what I say or the Baker-Hamilton commission advises since the Dear Leader Decider will never change his mind. They all want the clock to run out and if a Democrat takes over the White House in 2009 and ends this they'll get the political situation they really wanted - someone to blame. That's all they want, not results but political blame they can put in an ad.

As for who I am and who you are - have some manners. You want to go after me fine - my wife and family are off limits. You want your comments to stay up more than a minute you'll remember that.

I apologize about wife and family comments - that was out of line. Too bad Al Sharpton couldn't accept Don Imus' apology in a similar fashion.

However, this is my last post to you, becuase it is clear (and I know I'm partially to blame by engaging in some over the top commentary myself) that you don't want to engage in any sort of rational discussion.

Nothing has been more disappointing to me as a Republican than to see us now in a very messed up war. What frustrates me is that while you may very well be correct that Bush and Cheney are foolish not to change their minds, it is equally frustrating to me not to hear anything other than "get out" from the Democrats. It seems there is no room for discussion on either side. I WOULD be willing to discuss it, but all you want to do is rant.

As to stalking, that is certainly no my intent and I apologize for the possible perception of that. I will remind you though that you opened yourself up to it when you started this blog. You can end the blog or at least not accept "anonymous" commentary.

Good-bye.

Oh heavens - a ninny mouse is going to leave, and the self-impressed dyslexic dipshit is not happy that someone takes his "challenge" for what it is; thinly disguised, crudely worded and captiously organized jealousy.

Bin ich schoener
Zerschneid mir das gesicht
Bin ich staerker
Brich feige mein genick
Bin ich klueger
Toete mich und iss mein hirn
Hab ich dein weib
Toete mich und iss mich ganz auf
Dann iss mich ganz auf

Bin ich ehrlicher
Beiss mir die zunge ab
Bin ich reicher
Dann nimm mir alles
Bin ich mutiger
Toete mich und iss mein herz
Hab ich dein weib
Toete mich und iss mich ganz auf
Dann iss mich ganz auf
Doch leck den teller ab

Es kocht die eifersucht

Hab ich so glatte haut
Zieh sie in streifen ab
Hab ich die klaren augen
Nimm mir das licht
Hab ich die reine seele
Toete sie in flammen
Habe ich dein weib dann
Toete mich und iss mich ganz auf
Dann iss mich ganz auf

Doch leck den teller ab

Es kocht die eifersucht

Hey Cranky,
Welcome back, really.
You know, "anonymous" sounds reasonable - and I'm sure she (he) thinks so. But if he's a blogger, I wonder how many posts he's devoted to criticism of the right? People who claim to be this open-minded are self-deluding, and dishonest, though often well-meaning.
You forgot to mention that the Deputy Secretary of State was in charge of promoting the "abstinence only" solution to AIDS around the world. I find that an indispensable point.
BTW, did you really go to school in Madison - or is that just a synonym for "liberal" in commenter's mind? None of my business, but I thought I had detected some of that "Wisconsin" common sense in your prose (and that's a self-congratulatory compliment from me to you :))
Really glad to see you're back. I haven't been here in a while, so I'll have to go look at the comments from your earlier post that you refer to. I have a hard time ignoring trolls too - but I've learned to really try to do it. Responding intelligently is often more frustrating than doing just nothing.

I just read the thread from your previous post, and I take back what I said about anonymous sounding reasonable and being well-intentioned (unless there are multiple "anonymouses." The old canard linking Hitler to Hussein (via Chamberlain) was the clincher. Also, the Spanish was painful to read. The guy clearly took few college Spanish classes, but probably used "altavista translator" to compose that post -- it's painfully full of English to Spanish translations that don't work, and so he sounds much more foolish than he thinks, since many of the orthographic accent marks are correct. I hope your legions of illegal Hispanic immigrant readers don't take too much offense of the assault on their native language.

I assure you that the German is ganz und gar perfect and I should have credited the heavy metal group Rammstein for the song "Eifersucht" which means jealousy.

I lived for over four years in Germany, and essentially, I remember: Welche Farben hat die deutsche Fahne?

And that's about it. So, I guess while I can ask about the flag, I'd go pretty hungry there if I were without English speakers :)

Hey Capt. Fogg - While "Anon is a true asshole and got really vulgar in his language, I can't quite figure out why you think he's jealous of Crankyboy - I mean, maybe he is, but I just don't see it in his words.

Maybe because his wife is hot! :)

I just think a lot of arrogance and pretense to superiority has its roots in jealousy. Every group seems to think up a reason for smugness and he just seems like the kind of guy who isn't very bright and thinks he can fool people into thinking so.

Of course I could be wrong

But I don't think so.
