reaction from the left: predictable

I could have called this, practically word for word.

Hesiod thinks it's a bit fishy that U and Q were killed just as Bush was facing poll problems.

Here's what I believe.

I believe we have been tracking the two brothers for some time, and were waiting for an opportune moment to take them out.

You know...like when Bush's approval ratings started to get uncomfortably close to the South side of 50%.

The comments on that post amount to the same hysterical shouts of "It doesn't matter! Bush is a moron!" that comes after every annoucment of this sort. It's getting oh, so very predictable.

I think at this point the U.S. could eliminate poverty, stop AIDS and discover a way to make chocolate healthy for you and some people will still find a way to bitch about it or suggest a conspiracy.

Comments

Hey, my comments weren't hysterical. They were snarky, inappropriate, and mildly off-topic. However, I won't have to post anything further on the subject, since the left has already spoken.

Well, 'ceptin Norb, of course.

An odd theory, considering that Bush's numbers were actually UP this week... (59% as opposed to 53% last week)

Because you know that if Bush and his cronies were in the chocolate business, the FDA would approve it as a cure-all, money funding research to prove it unhealthy would be cut off, and the Swiss would be looking over their shoulders. ;-)

By now I would have expected The Left to react that way, but I still am disappointed. How about "good job, who's next? Where's the WMD?" would be better than Hesiod's reaction.

I don't like to sweepingly generalize but is his opinion characteristic of The Leftybloggers? I don't read too many lest I end up scratching my head till my scalp bleeds. If so, could they have fallen off the deep end and joined the tinfoil-hat crowd?

If there is evidence that suggests that the US was "tracking" the bros (not saying there was), I believe their reasoning would be in anticipation of a reunion with Daddy rather than the "polling numbers" to dip, thus giving US the ability to send them to Hell together. Staging this firefight to influence the political environment seems pretty ridiculous and way beyond even the comprehension of conspiracy theorists.

This guy represents everyone left of center? Holy cow! Who represents everyone right of center? Coulter?

Everybody I know who tends towards left of center is damn glad these murderous bastards finally got their due. Go get 'em 101!

You mean chocolate ISN"T healthy?? The things I don't learn on the net.

Why would Bush stage a military action to improve his poll numbers now? The elections aren't for more than a year. There are no critical bills before Congress that he desperately needs to pass. He's not facing impeachment hearings like Bill "Aspirin Factory" Clinton.

What's Bush's "big problem"? The non-controversy about African uranium. Raise your hand if you think there is even a single person who (a) dislikes Bush because of the African uranium nonsense but (b) will like him now that we've killed Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum Hussein.

I don't read Hesiod because I don't need to. His reactions to every event are completely predictable -- much like Michael Moore, Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter and Noam Chomsky.

Those comments sure as hell don't cover the thoughts of the left I know. Its amusing that you say "this is the response of the left" when...this is the response of the right to anything said by the left. Its kinda a never ending pathetic circle...isn't it? Btw...I'm glad if the brothers got it but I honestly don't have a clue whats going on. I was at work all day...lol. Oh well

Irony is alive and well!

No, No, No, If the WMD's would have suddenly appeared that would have been fishy.

This is just coincidence. . .

If the WMD's would have suddenly appeared that would have been fishy

It's a safe bet that the White House is going to sit on WMD evidence until it's politically useful. Why reveal the evidence now, when you could instead wait until after the Democrats have spent the last half-year claiming there is no such evidence?

I fail to see anything construtive from visiting the blogage idiot.

Everyone knows hesiod is a moron & his commenters are even worse.......using the time to count the number of hairs on one's head is time better spent than reading that pisshole of a site.

IMO, of course.

Anyone that can piss Alex off I stay away from!

The last poster, Ricky, said about all that ever needs to be said about dumb turds such as Hesiod.

"I believe we have been tracking the two brothers for some time, and were waiting for an opportune moment to take them out."

"Waiting for an opportune moment" - hmmm. What word comes to mind when I read that? Oh I remember.

DUHHHHHHH.

Old Hes seems to be conceding that it's not the uranium stuff that's hurting Iraq, it's the mainstream press' "quagmire" nonsense. Now they can't quite say that anymore... oh don't worry they will but it will be more laughable.

Seems Hesiod and his followers are attending Paranoid University (an affiliate of Berkley), and their favorite course is Conspiracy Theories 101.

Our tax dollars at work.

Is that like Bovine University, where Ralph Wiggum wanted to go to? That means you get a degree in Bulls*it!

What you don't understand, Michele, is the sinister nature of Republicans.

Once they get into the White House, they are suddenly, completely in control of everything that happens in the world.

All of their accomplishments are illusions created by elaborate conservative media mind control.

But the brilliant liberals are the only ones not convinced. They have seen the light, felt the hand of God, as it were, and understand the magic powers that power gives to Republicans, which it, evil in nature, never bestows on the Virtuous Left, which it fears.

Liberals alone can see through all the things that happen in the world and point us to their origin at the illuminati core.
