Readers of the Inanities Say: "How Can We Miss You If You Never Leave?"

I'm going to take a brief, Thanksgiving-related hiatus from the Inanities. I'll be posting up on here again on Monday the 28th. I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. If you're driving, do it carefully. I know that no one who reads this blog is a bad driver, but that doesn't mean that there aren't bad drivers on the roads with you, going to and from grandma's house, so be vigilant. See ya'll in about a week.

And, while you take a long, long, long vacation, Crane, the rest of us will forget all about your inanities. In fact, Crane who? Already forgotten, so you best be posting soon lest you want us all to forget who you are... In fact, Crane who? Already forgotten again. That's how I roll.

Chavez to give Massachusetts' cheap oil

QUINCY, MASSACHUSETTS: Thousands of low-income Massachusetts residents will receive discounted home heating oil this winter under an agreement signed with Venezuela, whose government is a political adversary of the Bush administration.

A subsidiary of Venezuela's state-owned oil company will supply oil at 40% below market prices. It will be distributed by two nonprofit organisations, Citizens Energy and the Mass Energy Consumer Alliance.

The agreement signed Tuesday gives president Hugo Chavez's government standing as a provider of heating assistance to poor US residents at a time when US oil companies have been reluctant to do so and Congress has failed to expand aid in response to rising oil prices.

US Rep William Delahunt, a Massachusetts Democrat, met Chavez in August and helped broker the deal. He said his constituents' needs for heating assistance trump any political points the Chavez administration can

That's awesome. I still haven't heard from the American press why Chavez is this South American devil yet. If he is in fact a dictator and doesn't allow free elections, than that is bad and he should be opposed, but I haven't heard that substantiated by anyone. That he would help poor Mass residents with heating oil makes me think he's a) a genius (revealing the current state of Corporation-Controlled America and showing up Bush and his oil-pals as a bunch of heartless buffoons), and b)not a bad guy. I'm all about that, anonymous.

And Heath, dude, the Inanities are designed to be forgotten. In one eye and... out the other? I dunno. And when are YOU going to post again? I've been looking at the frickin' Slaughter of Zorro for what, 10 weeks now? Let's get on it, Mr. Kettle with his 'black' name-calling.

Chavez es mi amigo. Es muy frio en Massachusetts. Gracias, Senor Presidente!

I'm glad you appreciated it, Peggy.

There are a ton of great animated gifs like the batman one on ytmnd.com (You The Man Now Dog). Try a search for Van Damme (I think that's how you spell his name), and you will be quite amused. He's got some funny ones, too.

By the way, whatever happened to that 'eye opening' blog called craneisstoopid.blogspot.com? Seems like Shawn might've taken it down. That was good reading.

Brian, would you ever read this?

Do As I Say (Not As I Do) : Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy
by Peter Schweizer

JudgeHolden said...

I've seen that in book stores and it seemed interesting to me because it posed, or seemed to pose, questions I'd always wondered about, like how does Michael Moore, who is now filthy rich, live if he appears to fundamentally dislike wealth so much. I wonder if there's hypocrisy there. On the other hand, it looks like it's written by a conservative hack, so I'm hesitant to even leaf through the book for fear I might read something and it might stick in my head because, as likely as not, it's going to be a lie. It just seems like a waste of time to read that and not have another source readily available that could refute it, or offer an explanation. Because I like most of the people that book attacks, I don't want to risk reading something that might sway me against those people if I can't be assured of the veracity of the book's author.

Also, the cover art makes it seem like a tawdry expose, so it seems almost as though it's supposed to wave off anyone looking for the truth or a different but honest perspective. I think the book's more for Ann Coulter readers than for independents distrustful of liberal opinion-makers.

Good answer Brian, but you should be strong enough to read something and discern for yourself. Try working out at the gym or something.

Ann Coulter = big ball of hate.
