Any day now, he is going to fucking kill himself.
"Putsch" is a word, Dan.
It's not "putsch," it's p*tsch--the sound of a whip being cracked....
Alienated labor will save us all from our hypocracy!
I wonder why the sound of a whip being cracked isn't crack! crack!
I'm also trying to picture who will hire this man. And what is he qualified to do? He went to Oral Roberts Univeristy, according to Wikipedia. We can guess that he isn't going to be doing any more of what he majored in. Perhaps he minored in something marketable?
congrats, dan. your obsession with haggard pays off!
between this and Larry Craigopalooza all i gotta say is, Happy Birthday Dan! and Merry Chistmas too. If not for the Mariners, this could have been a nominee for best week ever.
Yes, I would like fries with that!
Oh dear. Who volunteers to whip elenchos?
For many reasons this news makes me HAPPY!
That's an AP story, actually. It'll be EVERYWHERE!
I'm telling you, Public Intern needs to bake Dave Coffman a cake. CAKE CAKE CAKE!
I'm with ya Dan. Let's tell all the parasites, the preachers, teachers, and leechers: GET AN FFFFING JOB!
Mr. Coffman, you are a national hero. So are the interns you mentioned on an earlier post, which I'm too lazy to look up -- Ary and ....? You'll never buy a drink in any bar that I'm in.
He looks like he is squishing poop in his hand in the photo there. And, I might add, really getting off on it!
Once again, what Fnarf said. Dave, good job! And if you're ever in Denver I'll buy the drinks.
Dan, you missed the ball here in gloating over Haggard without bitching about his overseers too. Sure, Haggard is a bastard and deserves what he gets, but what about those hyper-hypocritical "Christian" overseers who've just thrown their own to the lions and left the lamb to fend for himself? Granted, Haggard is hardly a lamb, but you get the metaphor! Wail on them too -- it's more disgusting than poo-eaters how they preach forgiveness and acceptance, yet show their true colors in how they treat people like Haggard (or Senator Craig) -- in a second they put their own in a meat grinder and turn their backs forever, just like the pricks they really are. F*ck the lot of them. If you do a column on Craig, please rail on the hypocrisy of his colleagues a bit. The whole bunch should go to hell. Times like this I feel sorry I'm an atheist, Haggard got what he deserved but most of these Republichristians will upon death simply cease to exist, with millions in their pockets going tax-free to their brats, and a smile on their sanctimonious faces...
Just when I thought it was again safe to wade in the Slog cesspool, you dredge this tasty nugget about my man Hag. ... What will you Kos-tards do when you don't have fabulous Ted to swish & swat any more? You'll probably try to set up a happy-feet conservative senator for entrapment.
"Thrown the lamb to the wolves"? Bullshit, that was EXACTLY the right response. His superiors have apologized and covered for him enough already; it's tough love* time. You can fling a lot of shit at that particular church, but I don't see how they can be faulted for their actions here.
*a different kind of tough love
Nazi Pope. You're a real class act, huh.
Thanks Dan and everyone.... and to answer Fnarf's question it was Adam and Ary in the office who did a lot of the grunt work as well. And we were going to leave early last Friday!
Yes, I should only speak politely of the Nazi Pope--he's never been nothin' but kind to me and mine, after all. "Intrinsic moral disorder," etc.
The Pope is a Nazi and the ignorant goi need to be reminded of this. Tikkun Olum, the repair of this torn-apart piece of the world embodies the ideals of tzedakah - this mean attacking Christians whenever and wherever we can.
The goi must be show the emptiness of their religion so that the true religion Judaism may spread it's light and justice through this world.
Thank you Dan for these postings, you are the only Seattle Paper willing with the balls to call the Pope a Nazi. Mazel Tov!
The Pope actually did belong to the Hitler Youth as a child. That doesn't technically make him a Nazi, of course. But the Pope in office during World War 2 was probably a closet Nazi. He was much more worried about the Commies than the Nazis. The Nazis were "Christians" after all. Read the book, "Hitler's Pope" for all the details. And remember, the Roman Catholic Church helped many Nazi criminals escape Europe after the war. It's all in the record. The Catholic Church has much to answer for, from the Inquisition to Galileo to supporting Franco to its current-day gay-bashing. I say ban the Church and give all its property to the Quakers.
aliyah, you're getting redundant and it's beginning to be too easily ignored.
how did it take THIS long and OVERSEERS for him to be told this?! you want money, get a fucking job. isn't that how america works?
Nazi Pope? You fuckwit Americans elected a president who's Grandfather bankrolled the Nazis! Your CIA bankrolled Osama Bin laden during the Russian Afhgan war and now he hits you with everything you taught him!Your CIA supported and helped Saddam Hussein into power in Iraq only to lose control of him. You supported the IRA terrorists who blew women and children to bits in Northen Ireland and in England, Now terrorisim will hit America. God has abondened America, reap the worldwind
Terry, it's hard to argue with anything you say, except the last sentence. God is a myth, a human construct. We are in charge of our own destiny, not some supernatural daddy in the sky. If we fuck up, there's nobody to blame but ourselves.
