    Pakis Gave PRC Access To Downed Stealth Chopper

    That Paki thing again! This can’t be mere ignorance. You keep using the term again and again in your blog posts. Anamika doesn’t like it one bit.

    Holy Smokes, the comments over at the USA Today link about the bus tour are brutal. I’m not so sure about that 39% approval being accurate.

    I pay to God that Michele Bachmann or–if He is even more merciful–Sarah Palin! would become Obama’s challenger. Tim Palenty is gone, I guess other less crazies like Gingrinch, Santorum and Romney will soon follow suit. So we are left with the Bachmann(R-Mars), crazy uncle Paul and the pizza guy.  I hope Obama’s approval goes down even more that Palin might want to jump in.

    Fuck the goddamned Pakis, they don’t get to tell Americans-their betters-what we can call them and not. My favorite term for all of them are god damn motherfucking useless, worthless ragheads, but when its time to be specific, PAKI will do in their case.

    “Conservation Groups File Injunction To Stop Wolf Hunt””Is it a fair fight? Is this ‘wolf’ allowed any sort of projectile weapon?”

    I think we should throw these particular conservationists to the wolves and solve the problem that way, but I guess there would be Objections.
