The Daily Link

Today's link comes thanks to R@d@r, the ex-lion tamer, who tipped me off when he linked to a post of mine recently.

Today's link: The Rude Pundit

Active since: September 2003

Tag: "Proudly lowering the level of public discourse."

With the name and tag, you're already starting to form an impression. You're only half right. While the Rude One does indeed fire with both barrels ("Fuck Ulysses S. Grant, that drunk old son of a bitch. Put Ray Charles on the fifty."), he does so only sometimes. Other times he offers nicely nuanced commentary, spiced occasionally with a colorful metaphor--presumably to keep his cred. It's pretty amusing, to boot.

Trenchant Quote: "In other words, in the most generous assessment, our President is quite likely batshit insane. But, really, why leave it to the outside experts when we have the man's own words and interactions with reporters. Here he is attempting to explain how un-complicated the Medicare discount drug cards are to seniors in Missouri: "So there's different cards, is what I'm telling you, to meet your needs. And I understand, for some, that's going to be -- it's going to be complicated, and some people just don't want their lives complicated. And -- but you've got to know there's help. And just because it may seem complicated, that's not a good -- I think people should not use that as an excuse to participate." Fuck, by that logic, we should all learn brain surgery because, you know, it may be complicated, but don't use that as an excuse not to learn brain surgery."
