    Maybe in that walnut of a brain she is thinking, ” This is New York pizza? I can get this shit anywhere.”, and won’t come back. If she ever makes it here, make sure somebody treats her to Domino wings.

    When will Stewart do a piece on New York Weiners?

    • Alan Bedenko at 7:27 am #

      Um, all week? Immediately before this pizza piece? Take your pick.

    It’s starting to appear that Ward exists only to get repeatedly schooled by liberals.

    This is the funniest man on earth. It’s not even close. I’m cryin’ here!

    Ward is just a typical Fox News Republican, notable only because he posts here so frequently.

    But I thought John Kerry ordering Swiss Cheese on his Philly cheesesteak in 2004 was the greatest crime against humanity? I can’t wait for Fox News to cover this gastronomical atrocity similarly. (/sarcasm)

    Bbill, “schooled by liberals” is an oxymoron. Unless, of course, you are referring to the result from the failure of government schools.

  8. Rob at 2:05 pm #

    An oxymoron – like “Freener achievements”?

    Well then, if gummit schools fail there’s always Glenn Beck University, where you can learn that climate change is a hoax, cavemen rode dinosaurs 6000 years ago, and the Founding Fathers actually intended our country to be a Christian theocracy. Thass some schoolin’!

    Man that Stewart pizza bit is the funniest thing he’s done in some time. Dude knows his Noo Yawk.

    Or if we heed the Tea Party’s other standard bearer, we’ll learn more about US history than we ever did before:

    “He who warned uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.”

    fox news republican? wow, that just stings. label makers r us. imagine if all fit so neatly into your wonderful little categories. have a good weekend and don’t forget to recharge the diversity of opinion machine.

    Thanks mark, that was almost like actual English.

    Ward – You should just quit while you’re ahead.

    Bbill, you are the evidence that schooling by liberals is ludicrous. You can’t seem to wrap your head around the fact that if someone isn’t a liberal they must support everything Palin says. Your Glenn Beck University remark also shows a total lack of understanding about alternatives for education and why government schools aren’t working.

    Only here can you start of with a pizza post and up on Palin. I would love to See Mike do a Rorshcach.

    One of the enduring pleasures of this blog is reading Mike in WNY telling liberals how dumb they are.

    I see Mr Weener stiffed the Wisconsin Democrats Friday night.

    This thread is proof of my friend Alan’s committment to the free exchange of ideas, and the Hegelian Dialectic (please, Bbill and BobbyCat–look it up on your own; I even spelled it correctly for you to cut and paste). All in the name of Pizza.

    From Wikipedia

    Hegel’s dialectic was most often characterized as a three-step process, “thesis, antithesis, synthesis”; namely, that a “thesis” (e.g. the French Revolution) would cause the creation of its “antithesis” (e.g. the Reign of Terror that followed), and would eventually result in a “synthesis” (e.g. the Constitutional state of free citizens). However, Hegel used this classification only once, and he attributed the terminology to Immanuel Kant. The terminology was largely developed earlier by Johann Fichte. It was spread by Heinrich Moritz Chalybäus in a popular account of Hegelian philosophy, and since then the misfit terms have stuck[citation needed]. What is wrong with the “thesis-antithesis-synthesis” approach is that it gives the sense that things or ideas are contradicted or opposed by things that come from outside them. To the contrary, the fundamental notion of Hegel’s dialectic is that things or ideas have internal contradictions. From Hegel’s point of view, analysis or comprehension of a thing or idea reveals that underneath its apparently simple identity or unity is an underlying inner contradiction. This contradiction leads to the dissolution of the thing or idea in the simple form in which it presented itself and to a higher-level, more complex thing or idea that more adequately incorporates the contradiction. The triadic form that appears in many places in Hegel (e.g. being-nothingness-becoming, immediate-mediate-concrete, abstract-negative-concrete) is about this movement from inner contradiction to higher-level integration or unification.

    Two things: One, I want Sarah Palin to explain that to me. Two, to apply that to this thread is maybe just a little bit of a stretch.

    Ward, does Clarence Thomas appear to have a conflict of interest when some of the HCR suits start hitting the Supreme Court?

    Shorter entire American right wing: “Look at the Emperor’s new clothes. They’re beautiful! What a marvelous train! And the colors! The colors of that beautiful fabric! I have never seen anything like it in my life!”
