Stop Being Such an Asshole, Salon

posted by on November 7 at 11:49 AM


You’re at the top of Google News, Salon. But rather than looking confident like Obama, who just appointed his bad cop, and confident like the headstrong Rahm Emanual, who doesn’t give a shit what you call him, you put up a wimpy headline with the word “a - - hole”? Everyone knows you mean ASSHOLE. And you know that we know you mean ASSHOLE. So stop being such a wimpy ASSHOLE and just spell A-S-S-H-O-L-E.

A copy editor should have enough attention to detail to avoid double-posting.

CEFH, I'd recommend dealing with the two-egregious-errors-in-as-many-sentences plank in your own eye before you start trying to remove the transposed-words speck in Dominic's.

There is a subtle but important difference between calling someone an "a-hole" and an "asshole".

@5, there's also a subtle and important difference between "a-hole" and "a--hole"; consider the contrast between "eff that" and "f--- that."

You know, yesterday, I joked about Rahm sending Lieberman a dead cat in the mail. But, you know what? I had never heard that story that's in the salon article about him mailing a dead fish. For real. He is that much of a hardass, that when I joke about how much of a hardass he is, the best I can come up with is something that he has actually done.

At first I was a little puzzled by Obama's choice of Emanuel. But I get it now. Shit be getting done in Congress come January 20th.

Joan Walsh of Salon is a moron who proved herself to be utterly insane once Obama wouldn't let Hillary win the nomination. I haven't logged onto that site since last Spring. They post the most outrageously racist and homophobic garbage articles and their editorial direction couldn't be more lunatic if Walsh gave up the reigns to the Marquis de Sade at the Asylum of Charenton.

Salon still exists in this century? Why?

Rush Limbaugh called Rahm "a Chicago thug" (Obama as well). Anybody Limbaugh hates is my kind of guy.
