Huffington Post - another Air America

    The crusading liberal/left wing thinks they can still dazzle the rubes with their morally and intellectually bankrupt BS. Like Air America, it's a dismal failure. The "rubes" now have FNC and the internet, and that nonsense just won't fly anymore. Even their established MSM is losing ground, both broadcast and print.

    Here's the disaster for your own perusal:

    And they need to fire their webmaster, the coding on the site is really sub-standard.

    A blog where readers can't respond?


    Though I must admit, the entry where the former head of the RIAA complains about how she can't get her iPod to work is the most unintenionally hilarious thing I've read all week.

    Reminds me of the old nursery rhyme, as sung by Dems to Republicans:

    "Well, I'll Huff-ington, and I'll Puff-ington, and I'll blow your house down!"

    Read it today.

    For all the hype, the celebrity posters she showcased today were pretty bad. Not only was it (mostly) left wing stuff, but poorly written. The more popular left wing bloggers are much more interesting.

    Drudge thinks it was a disaster. I thought it was boring. Typical 'me centered' crapola. Larry David needs to take humor lessons from Iowahawk or Scrappleface, Walter Cronkite was whiny, Corzine was a bleeding heart. I'm not a coding expert, but I do know a crummy blog when I see it.

    The moonbats will love it, naturally. I predict it will be as popular as Air America, which is to say Drudge was right.

    Somebody should archive this somewhere. It's like watching a plane crash into a train that's going over a cliff- all in slow motion.

    LOL - this site really rips into the site:

    As if the rediculous liberal/left celebrity idiots needed another forum to display their stupidity.

    So it's OK for the pink people to have their own media directed at them, but it's not ok for the lime green people to have their own media focused on them. Sounds good.

    Whoopsy. When I saw the thread title, I thought of the CIA front company in Southeast Asia.

    Another loonie with a blog? How... original.

    Air America is doing just fine after some initial issues. We'll see how this new site goes. Way to early to predict it's demise. The Drudge report btw is for morons. Talk about crappy web page design and idiotic articles. Just what are you guys afraid of? Can you only handle corporate sponsored pap like Fox "news"?

    Umm... a bit touchy there, tthiel?

    As a new member, maybe you could introduce yourself. Heck, to make it easy, take this little quiz:

    1. Like, who did you vote for in '96? '00? '04?

    2. Like, on a 1 to 10 scale, where would you rate your "gun literacy" and shooting skills? Examples: 0 = Ariana Fluffington/Rosie O'/Dixie Chicks
    1 = Al Franken/Michael Douglas/Michael Moore
    9 = Navy SEAL

    3. Americans really should be more "European." (Agree? Disagree?)

    4. Situation: You and your Significant Other are returning from a campus rally
    for Political Tolerance and Diversity (where you shouted-down the token
    conservative). Suddenly, as you approach your environmentally-sensitive
    (75 mpg) Honda Prius in a dim parking garage, 3 socially-disadvantaged
    youths bearing switchblades appear -- requesting your involuntary
    donations to their chemical welfare fund. Do you:
    (a) Comply and give them your $$... anything to, umm, avoid "violence?"
    (b) Dial 911 on your cell phone... and hope the cops get there before your
    blood congeals on the cold concrete (such an environmental hazard)?
    (c) Whip out your "Kerry For President" lapel button collection... and invite
    these fine fellows up to your place to inspect your bong collection?
    (d) Beat them mercilessly with your N.Y. TIMES?

    I gotta duck out to get my Neanderthal nails manicured/sharpened at the nearest blacksmith's shop (Drudge Ironworks) but I'm dyin' to hear your quiz results.

    By the way, maybe we could meet for latte or Chardonnay sometime. Do you speak French?

    That is the most ridiculously stereotyped post i've ever seen. I guess you can't be a gun owner/gun rights supporter and not be a tollerant social liberal. I guess guns are only for closed minded bigots.

    Lattes go well with our fine European firearms.

    "Lattes go well with our fine European firearms..."

    Well, that's real sporting of you to share that with us.

    By the way, was that you I saw with John Kerry at the Iowa photo-op (i.e., "goose hunt") back in October? I recall there were 2 other guys in one of the photos (the one where Kerry still had the price-tags on his new L.L.Bean togs). One of those guys (with a "2A = Sporting Purposes" lapel button) was carrying the good senator's goose... and I think the other was carrying his water.

    I also had a forensic science pal run some tests on that poor dead goose. Turns out it had Jane Fonda's DNA. Speaking of Hanoi Jane, she's out on the new-book tour these days (blue states only, at a wine-tasting near you). I think you might be able to get her autograph if you mention Arianna's name, flash the Peace sign, and scream like Howie Dean.

    Is every gunny a card-carrying Republican/some even more right-wing party member/Libertarian/libertarian/Anarcho-Capitalist? No.

    Is every leftist a gun-hating blissninny? No.

    Does every Republican truly believe in RKBA? No.

    Are some Republican politicians shallowly supporting RKBA in order to gain votes? Probably. That's their job as a politician.

    Liberal and Gun-lover not usually associated, but they are not mutually exclusive. To assume otherwise is sheer, willful ignorance.

    Tthiel is right!

    Air America is doing just fine!

    I mean recently they've actually been able to pay most of their employees most of the time.

    And in the blue-state capitol of New York City, they are like the 26th or 27th most listened-to program! They are almost as popular as the all-reggae all-the-time format station they replaced!!!!

    Tthiel is right on!

    As for the gun-owning liberals, I've said this idea a few times before.

    I'm a college English instructor. I study words for a living.

    Words can and do change their connotations and denotations over time.

    For example, the word "nice" has been in the English language for about 700 years. It's had 17 distinct meanings over that time.

    And saying "Dad, I'm gay," did not mean in 1920 what it means in 2005.

    That being said, the word "liberal" has changed. It does not mean in 2005 what it meant in 1776. Nor does it mean in 2005 what it meant in 1955.

    Today, in 2005, liberal in the US political scene has come to mean a leftist who believes in strong governmental control and regulation of all behavior, with the goal of that regulation being to make everyone more "tolerant" and "politically correct."

    Today, liberal means person who is guided by the ideology of Herbert Marcuse, whether the liberal in question knows it or not. If you don't know what I mean, read Marcuse's essay "Repressive Tolerance."

    In short, if you really and truly believe in individual rights, if you really and truly believe in an individual right to keep and bear arms, you are not really a modern American liberal.

    If you really believe in individual rights, you cannot, by definition, be a modern American liberal.

    You may like to think you are a liberal. But you aren't.

    You may dress like a liberal, talk like a liberal, hang out with liberals, sleep with liberals, even call yourself a liberal.....but if you really do believe in the individual right to keep and bear arms, then you cannot be a real modern American liberal.

    Interesting .....

    >> Today, liberal means person who is guided by the ideology of Herbert Marcuse, whether the liberal in question knows it or not. If you don't know what I mean, read Marcuse's essay "Repressive Tolerance." <<

    And where might I learn more about Mr. Marcuse's work?

    Poor thing. As it happens I spent 12 years in the Marine Corps and am a disabled combat veteran. I'll bet money thats far more than you can claim so I'll leave my background at that. The weakest of the weak is people who jump on the anti-french bandwagon. You are suckers for the BS your president is handing out. Can't or won't think for yourselves because it makes you too uncomfortable. BTW have you noticed the administration is now saying complimentary things about the french now that they are helping us on other issues? Oops better switch sides again, follow the party line. Next time the gun shop commando, wanna be tough guy, contingent runs their suck you should not make assumptions about what kind of person your talking to. You know what assumptions do from personal experience.

    Frankly tthiel all that can be said to that is "That's nice". Your next story would be...?

    Air America is not "doing fine". They still can't pay their bills, have zero market share in middle America(you know, the part that feeds and clothes and energizes the parasitic metro areas) and lousy share even in their own domains.

    The better question is "What is it the left is afraid of?" Since it's obviously not failure, based on the miserable performance of such attempts as Air America. Obviously it's also not being accused of trolling, either. :D :neener:
