Operation Clark County

guardian%20800x600Thirteen days ago, some Guardian journalists went for an after work brainstorm in "a north London pub" http://www.guardian.co.uk/uselections2004/story/0,13918,1326033,00.html and came up with the bright idea of attempting to deny what used to be called in the good old days the "self-determination" of the American people by persuading floating voters to give birth to "JFK MkII" rather than "Bushy" chads.

imagesRichard Dawkins, the professor of the public understanding of science at Oxford has always seemed like a right muppet. Now his "letter to America" has proved it. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uselections2004/story/0,13918,1326066,00.html Burk. Many Americans were rightly outraged (see http://timblair.spleenville.com/ from 13/10 onwards for how all this panned out.) Actually Tim Blair reckons they nicked the idea from him anyway http://timblair.spleenville.com/archives/007570.php.

All this just goes to prove what a pathetic bunch are the natural fibre wearing, celery munching, soul searching, heart aching, slow marching, tambourine waving, anally retaining, micro managing (I could go on but would just end up with the lyrics to the next Beck single. You get the idea...) "liberal" "left" that has taken root in Britain. They seem to fall into two main groups. the first are the dangling earring brigade: those middle aged women who worry about the moral decay of society. I mean, moral decay? I thought we had established that midget tossing was the answer. the other group are richer, and include more men. The treatment given to this group by Rory Bremner, the only funny thing left in his repetoire (although to be fair his Blair is more imprinted in my mind than the real one), needs no further comment. To have developed into a movement large enough to have its own newspaper, and to get 48,000 people to apply for the addresses of innocent civilians represents they kind of disgusting Claire Shortism that is so happy about post apocalypse Britain. 9/11? Do me a favour! 1/5/97 was the day the four horsemen rode into town: Mandleson, Balls, Blunkett and Giddens are the architects of this itchy new existence. You thought Howard was bad? That was before you realised that "New" Labour would legislate to control minds in a way too crazy to believe. You can't be a civil servant and a member of the BNP? Never would I have believed that a fascist social worker would seem so appealing. Not that I feel much like voting for the Tories, but "withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy". I hope anyone who votes "New" labour on 5th May chokes on their Ryvita.

Why couldn't they leave it alone? Why couldn't they leave it alone? Motherfuckers. I've always hated the Guardian. If Bush wins because of this! Grr.

Just read Richard Dawkins letter to Clark County residents. It really was something, how bloody condesending is he trying to sound.
