Wouldn't it be great if Al Qaeda blew up a major American city this week?

That would absolutely ruin the Democratic Convention, wouldn't it? I mean, I'm not wishing that anybody get hurt, but wouldn't the timing be incredible?


From Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Daily News (second link):

I hope for the sake of the beleaguered Gulf Coast that this doesn't come to pass -- but from a realpolitik point of view, there is a potential nightmare for the Republican Party swirling around the warm Caribbean waters right now.

His name is Gustav.
You are so right, Will. And I really hope a terrorist attack on Philadelphia doesn't come to pass -- but from a realpolitik point of view, that would absolutely kill the Democrats.

The person who earns my "Jackass of the Year" award is Alex With an E at Daily Kos. He is one particularly giant, gaping, goatse of an asshole (third link):
Let me put it this way...

...I understand all about the "I hope this doesn't happen to New Orleans."

But, it's got to hit somewhere, and I hope it does hit New Orleans.
And just like surgeons always cut a little more than they have to when removing a tumor, then yes, God, please, let a hurricane hit New Orleans. Let there be a moment of such absolute, perfect irony that the Republicans simply cannot, ever, live it down.
Pissed off, yet? Then just wait, there's more from this cocksucker.
If it hits New Orleans -- and it doesn't have to be a Cat 5, I'm not sitting here working the worry beads hoping for total destruction [gee, thanks shithead - b] -- it puts the Republicans in the position of having to have a fucking party in the middle of a grotesque recreation of one of the country's worst natural disasters.
I'm sorry people are upset about the notion of New Orleans, a city on the Gulf Coast being hit by a hurricane, but the Democratic Party has to stop being so Holier Than Thou. Progressive does not mean that someone can't be tough or ruthless. And the touchy-feely indignations are NOT going to win the election. A water-logged Waco will NOT be of any use in the election. And yes, this is a crucial election.
Fuck you.

Fuck you.

Fuck you.

If anyone knows how to get a hold of Alex With an E, please direct him here and to Loki at Humid City. There are a lot of us who would like to have a word with him.

Personally, I'd rather beat him unconscious with a baseball bat. But that's just me.

Oh, and GernBlantzen: Fuck you, too.

props to Loki and Gutterboy

This bullshit is the liberals' equivalent of the fundies' rubbing their hands in glee and saying that god sends storms to deal with homosexuals.

Of course, if you've watched any of the convention, you'll notice that the Democratic party has been taken over by the Jesus jumpers.

So fuck them all.

I have nothing further to say here. I just needed to comment again because I forgot to subscribe to this comment thread.

But, as long as I'm here, I might as well say it again: Fuck those assholes.

But wait, there's more. The NYTimes and its fuckwitted commenters chime in. Good thing I believe that physical violence achieves nothing, but they're really testing that belief.

Thanks for pointing that out, Maitri. The thing I can't believe about the Times commenters is the same old, "stupid for living below sea level" bullshit.

I guess nothing bad ever happens where they live.

I am utterly shocked that people are hoping and PRAYING for extreme weather to further their political ambitions. Hasn't our country been through enough to hope for more? Michael Moore and the libs who think like him on this is no better than the focus on the family douches. This is disgusting.
