Shorter Ann Althouse:  It’s good that Barack Obama was elected president, or he’d still be making the same arguments as Noam Chomsky.

  • “Shorter” = retarded, you dolt. Way to go. Taking after Althouse for taking down Chomsky. Seriously. YOU WANT TO DEFEND NOAM CHOMSKY? I guess nothing sunk in yesterday, you idiot. Chomsky is not defensible on Israel. He wants that country destroyed. It’s an “evil” appendage of the “evil” United States that’s allegedly obsessed with expansion at the expense of the Palestinians. And you’re down with that? That’s not just “criticism” of Israel. That eliminationism. That’s what BDS is all about, and that’s why Kushner denied unsuccessfully that he’d never backed BDS.

    Use your fucking brain, Scott. If you have one. God man, have some moral backbone. Sheesh.

    • Shorter double-D: old man yells at clouds some more.

      • Joey: Hey, how about getting on point? Chomsky spoke last night at UCLA. Uploading some video at this moment. He said not one word about Palestinian terrorism against innocent Israelis. Not one word. Doesn’t fit the narrative of the angelic oppressed Palestinians. You LGM guys are on the wrong side on this. All this post does is confirm yesterday’s debate. But I shouldn’t be surprised. Farley loves Che. Now Scotty’s a Kushner/Chomsky acolyte. Bad form. Really bad.

        • DrDick

          Gee, and not one mention from you of the Israeli policy of massive disproportionate response. Not one though to the fact that six times as many Palestinians have been killed as Israelis since 2000 and that includes the numbers of children. And if you do not like that source, how about this one.

        • The point is, your response is utterly irrelevant to this post. Whether Chomsky is right or wrong (and believe me, I’ll take his word over some half-assed commuity college instructor who thinks it’s ok to direct his students to look at his pathetic drooling over cheesecake on his personal blog), Althouse seems to think that Obama’s opinions and statements align with Chomsky’s. There is, in the entire known reality-based universe, approximately no support for this ludicrous proposition. That’s what this post is about. Your sad little rant does not address it in any way.

          Shorter me (on point): You’re a fucking idiot, and I’m sorry I didn’t just say that first and be done with it.

          • …and even sorrier that I didn’t just think it and not waste my time tossing feces back into the monkey cage.

            • hv

              Dear Mr. Monkey,

              I believe you dropped this. Did you mean to? I am returning it to you.

              Sincerely,
              Joey Maloney

        • DrDick

          I will try this one again, since the filters ate the last version owing to too many links.

          Gee, and not one mention from you of the Israeli policy of massive disproportionate response. Not one though to the fact that six times as many Palestinians have been killed as Israelis since 2000.

          • rea

            That’s just another example of how Israel acts like Sasquatch . . .

        • timb

          Let me guess that you are yet to criticize the “angelic” IDF in its murder of Palestinians. There’s enough blood on both sides to last awhile.

          Seems to, “professor,” that you and Chomsky are just two sides of the same coin. Ironic, isn’t it, that you have a lot more in common than you imagine.

          PS Your comment did sound like an old man screaming at clouds.

        • timb

          Seriously, Kushner is now collateral damage in your jihad against the Palestinians?

    • calling all toasters

      The psychotic Althouse finds a rant from Chomsky decrying the attack on bin Laden, then supports her point by linking to Obama promising to do what Chomsky is decrying. Therefore, Chomsky = Obama.

      The troll then calls Obama supporters stupid for not seeing that Chomsky is wrong to attack Obama.

      I think both Althouse and the troll are parodies.

      • calling all toasters

        Oh, wait… maybe Althouse and the troll think that Chomsky is president. Then they might be sincere.

        • Chomsky rambles on vaguely about the Nazis, like U.S. policy is Nazism. It’s an old card. Bad form. You’re a troll, toaster dickwad.

          • calling all toasters

            Why do you keep defending Naziism?

          • DrDick

            And at that is infinitely more coherent than you have ever been on your best day (and I am not a big fan of Chomsky).

            • calling all toasters

              Oh, now you’ve done it. Troll will now say that LG&M is a hotbed of Chomskyism.

              Oh, wait, he was already saying that.

              • Bill Murray

                well sure a not being a big fan can still be interpreted as being a fan

          • Chomsky rambles on vaguely about the Nazis, like U.S. policy is Nazism.

            You know, sort of like Obama. Umwut?

    • c u n d gulag

      It’s AmericaNEOCLOWN!

      Wass up “Doc?”
      How da f*ck r’ ya?
      How’s it hangin’?
      Besides tiny, withered and diseased, I mean?

      How’s that seach for Sasquatch in the Kibbutz going?

      Oh, and as for Althouse, who gives a flying f*ck what that bearded bourbon-soaked barroom hag thinks.
      She’s almost as stupid as you, CLOWNIE.

      But of course, you still have the hots for her, don’t you, AmricaNEOCLOWN?

      Well, that’s all the time I have to spend on you.
      Happy Mothers Day, you MOTHER…
      Or, as we like to say in NYC – YO MAMMA!!!

      • It’s not my call, but I would prefer it if the LGM commentariat make fun of what Althouse says, not what you imagine she looks like. And the same with Donald. Call me PC, but wondering what his body looks like isn’t the point; what he writes is silly, and that’s plenty good enough for our snark.

        • DrDick

          Any possible physical deficiencies or deformities pale by comparison to the intellectual ones on full display here.

        • Scott Lemieux

          It’s not my call, but I would prefer it if the LGM commentariat make fun of what Althouse says, not what you imagine she looks like.

          Yes, thank you. Really, c u n d — not cool.

          • c u n d gulag

            Scott, and respected others,
            Sorry about that.
            I got a little too offensive. It’s just that I’ve had to deal with that asshole at other sites, and I’m tired of his moronic bullshit.
            He appears here and other places to start flame wars that link to his putrid site to increase the number of hits.
            I went too far. Mea culpa.
            Next time, I’ll know better.

            PS: He’s still an ignorant and stupid shit.

            • DrDick

              He’s still an ignorant and stupid shit.

              We accept the apology, you did not need to start praising his virtues as well.

      • Some Guy

        To whom it may concern:

        Please disappear this creature back to dailyKOS, thank you.

        Sincerely,
        Some Guy

    • p j

      I’d prescribe some Big Mama Thornton and a little drifting smoke about now to chill out an overly caffeinated shrill. And a little of the old one person’s opinion is not excuse to bust a chord, dude.

    • Malaclypse

      I guess nothing sunk in yesterday, you idiot

      You needed to use more CAPS. That would have let the Machiavellian elan shine though.

      • DrDick

        Hard to argue with that ironclad logic and overwhelming exposition of factual support that he presents.

        • Malaclypse

          Well, he abhors irrationalism in argument. You can see that ethos at work every time he posts.

    • hv

      I guess nothing sunk in yesterday, you idiot.

      Smartest thing you’ve ever said!

    • Donalde,

      If I were in your shoes, I’d try to change the subject from what Althouse wrote to what Chomsky said, too, because that tipsy hag really made herself look like a moron.

      But I’d probably do it in a manner that wasn’t so amateurishly transparent.

    • SamR

      The post’s point is that Obama isn’t and has never been Chomsky’s ideological twin, but Althouse pretends otherwise.

      Your arrival at the conclusion that this blog post in fact read “I agree with Noam Chomsky 100% on everything” would be puzzling were it not for your history of reading comprehension difficulty.

      But I do love how theatrical you get in your comments. The “God man, have some moral backbone” was the best.

  • Scott Lemieux

    YOU WANT TO DEFEND NOAM CHOMSKY?

    I do think we can all AGREE that THIS is impressively ILLITERATE even by the DONALDE’s standards.

    • DrDick

      It is still early on the West Coast and his meds haven’t kicked in yet.

      • I find Donalde’s comments much easier to digest by imagining him ending each one with Hnnnnngggggboogaboogabooga!

        • Halloween Jack

          I imagine him ending his comments by wiping the flecks of spittle off his screen, taking the cleanser and paper towels from cardboard cases in his office (he goes through a couple cases apiece each semester, and it’s not always spittle).

    • calling all toasters

      I don’t. It’s now just par for the course.

  • Ben

    Lots of potential in that Althouse post.

    ” ‘[In societies that profess some respect for law, suspects are apprehended and brought to fair trial]’ is the kind of thing that Barack Obama might have said before he became President.”

    ‘Public drunkeness is frowned upon in adult society’ is the kind of thing that Althouse might have said before she became a blogger.

    ‘Economic analysis is valid if it can be supported with relevant data’ is the kind of thing Megan McArdle might have said before she learned her family was rich.

    ‘Ad hominem attacks are for those who lack Machiavellian elan’ is the kind of thing that The Donalde might have said before he learned the term “Jew-hater”.

    • Socraticsilence

      ” ‘[In societies that profess some respect for law, suspects are apprehended and brought to fair trial]‘ is the kind of thing that Barack Obama might have said before he became President.”

      Which is easily my favorite part of her post, you know because its so easily proven to be the figment of her freaking imagination- see I remember Obama saying if he had actionable intelligence he’d go into Pakistan and kill bi Laden, hell, I remember him getting heat from both Hillary and McCain for doing so- so, if anyhting Obama just did exactly what he promised he’d do.

  • N.C.

    Just saying the name of The Linguist Who Shall Not Be Named explicitly means you defend, agree, worship, and want to make out with him.

    • hv

      I mentored Chomsky.

    • What about people who did make out with Chomsky but found him a bit too heavy with the tongue action on a first date?

      • calling all toasters

        Lamest pun ever. I like it!

  • I would that this is an interesting way for Donald to spend Mother’s Day, but, well, one wonders about his relationship with his mother. I mean, something has to explain the incoherent anger, right?

    • Malaclypse

      I mean, something has to explain the incoherent anger, right?

      I assumed it was the repressed sexual issues, myself.

      • DrDick

        That would have been my first guess as well.

        • rea

          I doubt he ever had a mother . . .

          • DrDick

            It would explain a great deal.

            • calling all toasters

              I vote brain parasites.

              • Warren Terra

                Now, now, if you let brain parasites vote …

  • Halloween Jack

    Gosh, where to begin? I think that I’ll begin and end with Althouse’s original post, archly noting that people like Scott are linking to her, demanding that they “put some effort into understanding The Mind of Althouse”, and pointing them to “this post from April 4th”… said post being from exactly a month later. That’ll do, Babe, that’ll do.
