WE ARE DESPERATE!!!

Desperation was the message coming from MTV Music Awards host Russell Brand and the message on every left wing hate site this weekend. They are flailing, grasping at straws, lashing out at anything they believe threatens the official annointing of the Chosen One. Evidently, these enlightened progressive intellectuals are too stupid to realize that the biggest reason for the shift in the polls that are showing McCain now in the lead is not Sarah Palin. It is their vicious, disgusting, soulless attacks on her and her family. Thank you Kossacks. Thank you DUmmies. Thank you empty-headed celebrities. We could never have jumped to a ten point lead without you!

Here is a link to the Russell Brand video.

Michelle Malkin has a transcript and lots of background information on Brand, as well as reaction to his latest performance. Here is the transcript Michelle prepared of the rant which occurred just a few minutes into the program:

BRAND: "Now, as a representative of the global community and a visitor from abroad, I don't want to come across a little bit biased, but could I please ask of you people of America, to PLEASE ELECT BARACK OBAMA. Please! On behalf of the world. (Camera pans to singers Chris Brown and Britney Spears applauding and cheering.) Some people, I think they're called racists, say that America is not ready for a black president. But I know America to be a forward-thinking country, right. Because, otherwise, you know, would you have let that retarded cowboy fellow be president for eight years?

We were very impressed. It was nice of you to let him have a go. Because in England, George Bush wouldn't be trusted with a pair of scissors.

I am obliged by broadcasting law to show some balance in this situation, which means, uh, the Republicans might be alright. Sarah Palin. She's a VILF! A vice president I'd like to...fumble, fondle, I dunno. I do feel a little bit sorry for her daughter, getting pregnant, poor kid. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? It's a P.R. stunt. Come on. Be honest.

And I feel most sorry for that poor teenaged father. Boy. One minute, he's just a teenaged lad in Alaska having joyful, unprotected sex. And the next minute: Get to the Republican convention. I think that is the best safe sex message of all time. Use a condom or become Republican! ...That boy will spend the rest of his life masturbating while wearing a condom...

...New music, new president, and brand new America. And you people deserve it after eight years of Bush. I promise you, you deserve it...

Update: Here is a less sensational, but equally desperate attempt to smear Sarah Palin. There are only about a hundred or so equally lame Palin "scandals" like this floating around on the internet. I expect them to continue to multiply since they are working so well. Ha.

Update II: Another act of desperation -- kissing Don Clinton's ring.

It's vile creatures like these who totally remind you that you're on the right side. If these clowns are for Obama, then you know something is wrong with Obama.

Of course I knew that already, but it's always nice to be reminded now and then.

Robert A. Heinlein wrote in "Gulf" that "Evil is essentially stupid." Ayn Rand wrote in Atlas Shrugged that the power of evil comes from "the sanction of the victim." Perhaps, given the Left's treatment of Sarah Palin and the public's reaction, we can see these things more clearly now -- and perhaps we'll stop cringing and tugging our forelocks whenever they mount one of their baseless attacks on conservatives' characters and intentions.

Palin's daughter is pregnant, right?

And some pop star wears a purity ring and announces on MTV, to applause, "not all teenagers want to be sluts"

So, dear Right Wing America, is Palin's daughter a slut in your minds or not?

You can't have it both ways.


Russell hit the nail on the head. Purity rings are a terrible joke.

Btw, I can tell you that much of he world IS desperate that a creationist nutjob like Palin - someone who would barely make it to local council official level in Europe - doesn't become Vice-President of the most powerful nation on Earth.

We don't want to wake up one day and discover Britney Spears is President, either.

Sure, she (Britney) looks kind of hot and speaks in that funny girly/cheerleader voice so many American women adopt and believes in God (beliefs for which she has no evidence)and doesn't do scienece or anything intellectual (as with Palin) but,please, don't ever make her President.

"Sarah Palin. She's a VILF! A vice president I'd like to...fumble, fondle, I dunno."

Some people, I think they're called misogynistic and sexist pigs, can't look at a woman without degrading her with such basal language.

Baron Von Ottomatic:

When did Europe become the model for responsible governence? Sarah Palin couldn't get elected in the uber-socialist, EU dominated dinosaur that is Europe? Good, fuck you Europe. Enjoy your sharia, you simpering welfare state parasites.

Christ, if America looked like Europe today I could only imagine the hyperbole Barrack would use to describe our miserable condition - negative or near negative economic growth, twice (thrice?) the US unemployment rate, constant video surveilance of its citizens, militarily impotent (save the Brits), $10/gallon gas, and the demographic death spiral. No thanks, brother. Keep your hoary, book-smart elites and give me sensible leaders who've actually accomplished something.

Oh, I'm far too old to enjoy MTV, and still enjoy Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Canned Heat, Ten Years After or T.Rex, and just can't get into the new stuff so I don't watch MTV. But my impression is that Russell Brand is an UK citizen and cannot vote in American elections that I know of, and Bush has not been a popular figure in Europe with many citizens. Brand only reflects that European sentiment.

Musicians look at a long history of American and Russian militarism around the world, and despise such activity, but not the people of both nations. The Iraq economic war for oil control has killed 1,255,026 persons so far and left 2 million refugees. The Russian political assault into Georgia left hundreds killed, and thousands injured or homeless. Who's to say that it's wrong to oppose government sponsored suffering on this grand scale in foreign lands to achieve economic or political goals by the major powers?

It is easy for many musicians to support humanitarian causes, but few support banging the war drums like some governments that many musicians oppose.

Weegie:

Golly. I had caught a few minutes of this show while flipping through channels, but I missed this idiotic anti-Republican screed.

But, from what I did catch, I thought that Russell Brand was a complete brain-dead dolt, who was neither witty or humorous, whose act and manner were more like a retarded adolescent's.

I'm not surprised to find out he displayed his full stupidity by talking about the election. Goodness, who's the idiot who inflicted this Eurotrash on American TV?

LaMedusa:
I think they're called racists, say that America is not ready for a black president.

I wonder if they are calling the wrong people racist. Barack's mother and parents are clearly white, but people on the left keep pointing to the his father's side. Now the bias has shifted, and the left (and others) are attacking Palin because they can't handle the very idea of a woman as veep. It's not so much about qualifications any more, it's about which prejudice is stronger.

Potential voters really need to start paying attention to what each candidate has to offer, and what they can do to counterbalance the outcome with their own choices, rather than scratching the surface with "Black" and "Hockey Mom".

On a side note, I think it's utter stupidity for Brand to even bring up the words publicity stunt with Britney Spears there. Her younger sister got pregnant at the age of 16 and just had a baby. I didn't really think much of it because she is more of a statistic than a shocker. Brand and these MTV idiots have no idea in hell what they are talking about.

MTV used to be an innovative tool to get new music and artist interviews out to the public. Now it's reduced to crap programming such as this. Very sad.

Danny, you sixth-graders and your intarweb access make me chuckle!

Belief in God is easy - there is no proof of existence (except for the first-hand accounts written in the Bible, but that's for theologians to argue), nor is there disproof; hence, belief.

On the other hand, if you continue to believe in something that CAN be disproven, like Obomber's abilities, then you are simply a grade-A moron.

Dan Wright,

You come to this blog of your own free will. You use (what you seem to think is) disparaging language while attempting to make your point ("dear Right Wing America").

Then, when you get slapped around for your (dumb, assinine, moronic, take your pick) comments, you feign indignance and claim "Now I remember why I stopped talking to Right Wing Americans with internet access."

Here's hoping you never forget again, you effete, arrogant, self-righteous dick.

dooz:

May I remind you commenters that the subject at hand is the brainless and tasteless and logic-free screed on MTV, and the use of that event as evidence that the Left are desperate. Repeat: The LEFT are desperate. So why are we conservatives here resorting to the idiocy of the likes of Dan Wright?

Got facts and evidence? Use them. Got pent-up anger? Take a cue from Sarah Palin and slash them while smiling sweetly.

Remember that the facts are on our side. McCain and Palin both have a track record of making government better. Obama and Biden both have a record of party politics and status quo.

Good points made about Europe, but how about burying their feeble elitist argument with facts? (e.g. hate crimes up, taxes up, nationalized health care not working)

Now I admit that, like you, I don't believe that such facts will persuade Dan and his like, but that's not our problem. Truth is truth whether Dan chooses to believe it or not.

And that's driving the Obamadrones CRAZY!

Ignorance strikes in the form of this don guy - "Btw, I can tell you that much of he world IS desperate that a creationist nutjob like Palin - someone who would barely make it to local council official level in Europe"

The world is also desperate, or was, except the part of the world called londonistan when they had a terrorist loving mayor called "Red" Ken Livingstone. (Not to mention that nutjob Galloway who will be arrested for contempt of congress if he sets foot in the US agtain.)

"Brand only reflects that European sentiment."

Nice to know that Europeans think of women as VILFs. Excuse me, let me correct that, "conservative women". It's also nice to know that our resident blow-hard can't bring himself to condemn someone who talks like that about women they simply have political disagreements with. I'm not surprised though.

After all Mr. Hooson agrees with him. Although he seems to prefer the "trailer trash" epithet.

He would rather gloss over that by romanticizing musicians and their oh-so lofty ideals on war and peace and how they naturally wouldn't express a dislike for the people of America or Russia - unless they're conservative.

I had a high tolerance level for Paul Hooson for a long time because though I may disagree with him, I felt he was sincere. But that came to a screeching halt yesterday.

Can I take that entire long-winded exercise in self-aggrandizement as a further endorsement of the sexist degradation of women you disagree with politically?

Oh, nevermind.... (Below threshold)

Oh, nevermind.

I must be missing something. I thought Brand was a comedian, not a musician.

I don't think attacking a 17 year old pregnant girl and her fiance the way he did, or making lewd comments about "f"ing Sarah Palin, as funny, but each to their own. I just think it shows how hysterical some on the left have become. Hmm. Which come to think of it, is kind of funny.

"If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons.

Lorie, that's typical Russell Brand humor. He looks sort of Marc Bolanlike like a typical 70's UK rock star, and acts sort of like an English gentleman while conjuring crude sexual images of incredible depravity that he considers to be jokes. The result is that he hopes a person will laugh at all his rudeness.

If MTV wanted a little edge, then they certainly got it in Brand's performance.

Brand is just the latest sort of postLenny Bruce comic to emerge on the scene. However, I consider Bruce a far deeper social critic and thinker than Brand whose humor is about an inch deep by comparison.

Whatever, Hooson. You're the one who expressed your approval of the "trailer trash" comment. And it took hundreds of your own words ignoring the issue (the vast majority of those words boasting about yourself, which many may be thankful to not have to suffer through now. Who ever deleted it really should have left it up for everyone too see that Paul is only interested in Paul) before you produce some bland attempt to kinda/sorta admit the sexist nature of such commentary - all used to imply that anatomy is an important factor in judging someone's political beliefs.

Paul - I'd say his humor is... (Below threshold)

Paul - I'd say his humor is a little lower than an inch deep. The VILF comment was crude, but was at least aimed at Palin. The comments about Bristol Palin and her fiance were creepy and nasty. The comment about Bush being retarded was just (excuse me, but) retarded.

Oyster - I didn't realize any comments had been deleted from this thread. Someone else must have done it.
