North Korea’s take on the debates

The Dear Leader Kim Jong-Un has an interesting take on the U.S. election. If Trump is a “lunatic oaf” and Hillary is a “braying she-ass” – how would he refer to Mr. Toot? I would call  him  a “smelly old gas-bag”.

    Am thinking that Kim Jong-Un & Fatso would be great pals, actually. They both hate anyone who disagrees with them. Fatso secretly wishes he could be more like Jong-Un and have his own firing squad, tho. In the meantime, he has to settle for “FUCK YOU” and exercising his block finger/button.

    Did Trump “lose” the debate?

    I thought he had won until the “unbiased media” weighed in and said he lost because blah blah etc.

    And now “online” polls are supposedly meaningless (unless Shrillery is ahead) because the only people who vote in online polls are brain dead idiots who couldn’t find their collective asses with both hands (unless Shrillery is ahead in the online poll in question in which in that case the participants are upstanding folk speaking “Truth to Power™ and voicing their determination to thwart the Trump menace).

    Sorry for the snark but I was just over at Ace’s and I’m really getting weary of his “NeverTrump” bullshit bleeding through his facade of “I’ll support Trump even though he sucks but Hillary would be kinda sorta worse even though if she won I wouldn’t mind because then I could say I told you so.”

    Ace is a rabid “NeverTrumper” who is only tepidly supporting Trump because his blog almost imploded over the mutiny stemming from when he was openly and rabidly honking his NeverTrump status.

    He’s already lost at least one long time moderator and his ongoing threats of going “Charles Johnson” and banning commenters without warning for being “confrontational” against NeverTrumper imbeciles has prompted me to delete the Ace of Spades bookmark.

    Why am I ranting like this?!

    I don’t know!!!

    Just reading Ace’s bullshit tonight really struck my last nerve.

    It was like the moment years ago when I went to LGF and finally said to myself, “Fuck this! Charles Johnson has gone off the rails! I’m done!”

    So in with that memory in mind, all I can say is….

    Fuck Ace in his fat NeverTrump ewok ass with a humongous, blue ribbon award winning cucumber!

    There… I feel much better. 😀

      I totally hear you on Ace, but I’m still hanging in there with him for now — he still cracks me up on a daily basis with at least one great line. He’s been vicious on Shrillary, too. I see him as a young man going through a bit of change o’ life, as he’s trying to lose weight and shed some of the bitterness and angst that has pervaded the Right for the past however many years. I don’t blame him for that last part — I’m doing the same, and it isn’t easy. Life is too short to be mad all the time, though. Also, for all his merits in the current campaign comparison, Trump is still pretty Trump-y, you have to admit. 😆

    • Pakimon says:

      Wow. I should’ve invoked The Ironfist Rule on myself last night.

      Sorry about that folks.

        One addendum to the Iron Fist Rule, not often cited, is that you usually don’t know you’ve violated the Rule until the next morning. This takes us into the related chapter on “Hangovers and Remorse,” which is a very boring and stupid chapter designed to take all the fun out of drinking. 😡

    Alec Baldwin Joins ‘S.N.L.’ as Donald Trump
    SEPT. 28, 2016

    “Saturday Night Live” has found its Donald Trump, and it’s a performer who is plenty familiar with the show.

    Alec Baldwin has been tapped to take on the role of Mr. Trump, according to an NBC spokeswoman.

    Mr. Baldwin will debut as Mr. Trump for the “S.N.L.” premiere on Saturday. Kate McKinnon, who won an Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy for her work on the show, will return in her role as Hillary Clinton. Previously, Darrell Hammond and Taran Killam played Mr. Trump on the show.

    During recent election cycles, “S.N.L.” has turned to people outside of its cast for key appointments. Tina Fey was cast as Sarah Palin in the 2008 election, even though she had left the show. And Larry David was cast as Bernie Sanders last season, and received rave reviews for the performance.

    “S.N.L.” posted a teaser for the program. Though Mr. Baldwin does not utter a word, he purses his lips in Trumpesque fashion as he is outfitted with the candidate’s signature hair style.

    Mr. Baldwin has been the host of “Saturday Night Live’’ 16 times, the most of any person in the 41-year history of the show.

    • Be a dick for Jeezuz says:

      If Baldwin is coming on the show to actually BE Trump throughout it then this is going to be an NBC/SNL kneecapper through and through. No reason for anyone to watch except Shrillerybots.

      • Octopus says:

        This whole season will be devoted to destroying Trump. Luckily, viewership is in steep decline, the worse the show gets. And it gets worse every year, running on fumes since Assface Tina Fey became the “star.”

    You should know about flushing one’s self down the toilet Stompy.

  13. Be a dick for Jeezuz says:

    Shouldn’t GoFundMe also shut down Stompy Chubbyfeetz’ begging basket? He murdered his own website and the remaining husk can’t produce any money for him now. Hence his begging with no good or noble cause. His cause is “I gots bills and these GOP hatin’ posts ain’t gonna post themselves”. He’s also a fraud because he put it under the category of Art. He’s not an artist and his website is only about hatred of conservatives. Of course, he could say LGF is an experiment in what happens when a blogger changes every single political and ideological position exactly 180 degrees in a span of weeks and pretends it didn’t happen. You could call it some kind of weird performance art. But Stompy’s not that clever.

    • Octopus says:

      Some people’s lives are seemingly meant to serve mainly as an example to other people, on how NOT to live. Chunky is a shining example of this cosmic phenomenon. Therefore we shouldn’t shut him down, so he can continue to provide guidance in this bizarro way.

    Gus apparently thinks this is real clever stuff. Hmmm things you might do if you were trying to lose an election. How about…..

    Start a pay to play scheme while head of State to shake down foreign powers into your fake foundation slush fund and paying exhorbitant speaking fees to your crooked ex Prez fake husband.

    Run your emails from your home bathroom outside the gov’t firewalls to be able to delete the evidence of corruption. Against the law? Who fucking cares?

    Tell a big alternate lie to the American people about how the first Ambassador and other diplomatic staff were murdered by Islamist terrorists. Instead blame it on a goofy video causing a riot and not caring that people will be able to spot the audacious lie later. Never apologize to the victim’s families for having lied to their faces. Instead insult them by saying they misunderstood.

    House classified information on your home bathroom server. Send it to any fucking body you fucking well feel like.

    Have a bunch of unauthorized mobile devices while head of State dept. Have your minions smash ’em with a hammer later!!

    Be under FBI investigation for most of the year before the election. Be publicly called a stupid, clueless lying idiot instead of a felon by the FBI director on national TV. Then call it WINNING!

    Avoid the press like the plague so they can’t ask you specific questions about your crimes and your constantly changing story trying to explain them away.

    Attack your opponent as anti-women while married to a man that exposes himself, does unwanted advances and rapes women. In addition to making your marriage a sham by cheating with countless floozys and sluts even while in office as Preezydunce. And also goes on sex trips with his cronies to a private island stocked with teenaged prostitutes.

      Alumni Dust Off the Pom-Pons
      As ex-cheerleaders return for homecoming, schools hold their breath; ‘we’re not liable’
      Updated Oct. 15, 2010 12:01 a.m. ET

      As Michigan faces off against Iowa this weekend in its annual homecoming game, Dick Kimball plans to have two friends pitch him into a backwards summersault on the sidelines.

      For his next trick, the onetime Michigan cheerleader will grip one friend by the shoulders and hoist himself into an arm-to-arm handstand. There’s only one move he has axed from his routine this year: the backwards hand-spring.

      “I don’t do that anymore because I would be sore for a few days,” said Mr. Kimball, a former diving coach who is 75 years old.


      A group of former University of Michigan cheerleaders shows that just because they’re decades out of school doesn’t mean they can’t still do a decent backflip.

      Homecoming—that magical autumn weekend when nostalgic alumni return to their old campus stomping grounds—is turning into a much more compelling, if occasionally terrifying, spectacle of late.

      No longer content to lollygag at tailgate picnics or stroll through campus ogling the foliage, a growing number of former cheerleaders, some well into their 80s, are dusting off the pom-pons and squeezing into old uniforms to show today’s college “spirit squads” how it used to be done in the old days.

      Many of the classic routines can be difficult to replicate because “most of the girls are a lot bigger now and we all can’t walk the next day,” said 66-year-old Dale Young, a former cheerleader at Texas Christian. But some of the country’s spryer cheerleader alums are showing off tricks that many schools no longer allow their current students to do.

      Michigan, which banned students from doing Mr. Kimball’s “toe pitch” stunt years ago, said the school’s not responsible for alumni safety. In 2003, representatives from the University of Georgia had to beg alumnus Curtis Beall not to attempt a back flip off of a trampoline. “I did it in my swimming pool,” said Mr. Beall, who was 81 at the time.

      During a commercial break in the second quarter of a 2006 homecoming game against Purdue, a group of two male and two female Iowa alumni cheerleaders attempted an impressive stunt called the “Diamond Head” in which one cheerleader stands on another’s shoulders while gripping the arms of the other two to form a diamond shape.

      When the network broadcasting the game, ESPNU, returned to the air, it showed a slow-motion replay of the maneuver. “Look at the smiles on these guys’ faces, getting to relive their glory days,” said Brian Kinchen, one of the game’s announcers.

      Darren Everson has the story why senior citizens in their 70’s and 80’s are literally flipping on the sidelines of their college football teams.

      But when it came time to dismount, the formation lurched to one side before breaking apart, sending one cheerleader tumbling to the turf and prompting a volley of mockery from the broadcast booth. “You know why you don’t do that?” asked ESPN’s Mr. Kinchen. “You get hurt, exactly like that kid.”

      Graying alumni began turning up at schools with their megaphones about 30 years ago, when the country’s first crop of coed cheerleaders began to retire from the work force. Now, with every passing year, more cheerleaders graduate into the ranks of alumni.

      The sport itself is also graying: Last season college-football games attracted an average of 1.5 million viewers age 55 and older, up from 1.2 million the season prior, according to Nielsen Co. That group now accounts for nearly half of all college-football viewers.

      As so many different generations of cheerleaders crowd the sidelines, differences have emerged on what it is, exactly, that cheerleaders are supposed to do. At UCLA’s homecoming game against Arizona later this month, the Bruins’ current cheerleaders will be vying for the crowd’s attention with more than 100 passionate, pom-pon-wielding alums. Those include 62-year-old Geoffrey Strand, a financial adviser who has been yelling into his megaphone from the sidelines at nearly every game for the past 32 years. While it may not be “cute,” he said his method is far more effective than today’s “coordinated-swimming stuff.”

      Debra Tracy, a 44-year-old sales executive who was a member of the UCLA squad in the 1980s, said she thinks today’s cheerleaders “dance like strippers” with their fake eyelashes, skimpy outfits and suggestive dance moves. Ms. Tracy said her team has more of a “girls-next-door” look with white sweaters and choreography inspired by Pee-wee Herman, and that they tend to get more attention than the younger crews.

      “We have the ability to laugh at ourselves,” she said.

      UCLA’s current spirit director, Mollie Vehling, said she instructs alumni cheerleaders to stay off the stadium microphones, abstain from alcoholic beverages and avoid hassling the visiting team. She also sends out a video demonstration of a suggested routine to prevent anyone from getting too creative.

      “I love old people,” Ms. Vehling said. “But I feel strongly that it should be very much student-led inside the Rose Bowl,” which is where UCLA plays its home games.

      As cheerleading continues to morph into a more athletic and competitive sport, many alums say the real goal—trying to fire up the crowd to influence the outcome of the game—has been unnecessarily obscured.

      George Henderson, a 66-year-old alumnus of San Jose State who spent years as a professional cheerleader, said he’s known for bringing the crowd to such a high volume that the opposing team’s quarterback can’t call audibles.

      “I carry a drum, I roam through the stands, I threaten people’s lives, and I watch the game intensely, leading cheers that are appropriate at the right time,” said Mr. Henderson, who is better known on campus as “Krazy George.”

      Across the country, “mature” cheerleaders are popping up in new places. NBA teams including the New Jersey Nets and Miami Heat have recently launched “senior dance teams” that routinely get standing ovations for routines set to hip-hop music. “Sometimes they go out and have a brain freeze—but they’re probably more angry at themselves than we are at them for messing up,” said Petra Pope, the Nets’ vice president of entertainment and event marketing.

      When one of these performers messes up, they’re not subjected to the same punishments as younger performers. “We don’t make them give us 20 push-ups,” Ms. Pope said.

      In some cases, older cheerleaders say their appearances at homecoming can produce some unexpected benefits. At a recent homecoming game at Georgia, the 88-year-old Mr. Beall said he was minding his own business, strolling around with his family in the now-snug-fitting cheerleading outfit he wore in 1942, when out of nowhere two young female tailgaters in “pretty short shorts” pushed his son and grandson aside and ambushed him with kisses all over his head and neck.

      “I was completely flabbergasted,” Mr. Beall recalled. “One of them said she’d always wanted to kiss a bald-headed cheerleader—I guess they’d been drinking.”

      (Ed.Note — Four hours later, Mr. Beall received medical attention to relieve his painful erection that refused to stand down)

    It’s always fun to have a truly superior athlete on your team, no matter what’s going on with the rest of the bunch. The Lions have had Barry Sanders and Megatron. The Tigers have Miguel Cabrera. The Pistons had Isiah Thomas. Charles Woodson was a Heisman-winning freak at Michigan.

    Now we have Jabrill Peppers, who hasn’t accomplished nearly as much as any of the above yet, but he’s obviously an electrifying talent who plays both ways. Nothing sexual, preppies — just on the football field. He blows up anything that happens around him on defense, and he’s a threat to go all the way every time he touches the ball when returning kicks or lining up on offense.

    Keep calling them pathetic, Fatso. Looks like a lot of them want to write in Sanders. There go Billary’s numbers.

    YES! You couldn’t have stated your Fat Master’s foolosophy any better if you’d used one of Obama’s speechwriters, Gus.
