Rich Lowry: Idiot

His finest hour.

This particular bit of Lowry’s idiocy has been bugging me since the middle of the week, and I finally have a chance to say something about it.

How incredible is it that Bush and McCain are having a love-fest at the White House, and Democrats are at each others throats in an increasingly bitter contest that involves the hot buttons of race and gender?

Somehow, Rich Lowry gets paid to write down his thoughts.

Let’s see here. Sens. Clinton and Obama are vying for the same job. Sen. McCain and Pres. Bush are not. How incredible is it that two people competing for the same position are at odds, while two people who have no shared competition but do have a vested interest in keeping their party in the White House are acting cordial? Shocking!

That’s a lot like being surprised to find out that triangles still have three sides. Moron.

Also, this bit of brilliant insight came after his comparison of Sen. Obama to some shmo fromAmerican Idol. How does he get paid for this crap?

I realize that I am engaging in an ad hominem attack here, but sometimes you gotta call ’em like you see ’em. “We’re Winning.” Shit. These people are just Freepers with better grammar and more veiled bigotry.

  1. Now, who would be pressing those buttons, Mr. Lowry?
    “The radical Islamists, the al-Qaida … would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror,” [Rep. Steve King (R-IA)] said in an interview with the Daily Reporter in Spencer.
    King said his comments were not meant to demean Obama but to warn how an Obama presidency would look to the world.
    “His middle name does matter,” King said. “It matters because they read a meaning into that.”

    So al Qaeda declares victory because Obama shares the middle name of the guy who violently suppressed radical Islamists in his own country and told Bin Laden to pound sand?
    Mendacious little shitheads–King and Lowry both.

  2. It’s triply stupid because anyplace there’s a large Arabic-speaking population (whether Muslim or not; the two are not synonymous, as any Lebanese Maronite Christian will tell you), you’re going to find about as many people with “Hussein” in their names as you’d find guys named “John” in a city in the US Midwest.
    For what it’s worth, “Osama” is about the same — the last time I went to my bank to do some serious financial stuff (that is, not just paying bills), a very nice guy with a jovial manner and the first name Osama was my designated suit.

  3. I know a jazz drummer from Lebanon whose first name is “Osama”. So far, nobody’s accused him of having RMDs (rhythms of mass destruction) yet.
