We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata double quote of the day

In Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman.

Keith Olbermann, MSNBC host.

To which Mark Steyn responded, under the heading “Homophobic Nude Teabaggers on the March”:

That’s certainly why I’m supporting him. But who knew there were so many of us?

    The Boston papers were all over that nude photo of Brown, but I don’t recall many bringing this up about Coakley:


    I wonder why.

    BTW, can someone please give Olbermann a nice long lemon-scented enema — that might take that pained “all backed-up” expression off his face.

  • Laird

    I’m just grateful there are no (known) nude photos of Martha Coakley.

  • Dom, thank you for that very informative link.

  • Nuke Gray

    Hey, send me money, and I promise to NOT post any nude photos of me! You’ve got 24 hours from now!

  • J.M. Heinrichs

    Post and be danged.

    But probably not that much dangled.

    Couldn’t resist it!

    One year to the day and Obama loses the safest seat in America, the Kennedy fiefdom, the seat that had…

    For the arse of Kennedy’s and fellow fuckwits only

    written on the back of it.

    This is indeed a great day, not to say what damage it very likely will do to the Ones grand plans.

    This must certainly be the thread where we will miss IanB’s hobbit porn expertise the most.

    Where is the lad, anyhow?

    On these very pages, the day after he was elected, I predicted as follows:

    ‘I predict that, in less than a 12-month, President-elect Obama will actually be at loggerheads with his own party in the Congress, as the public takes turns in roasting them for some of the bull-headed cr*p that they want to try and foist on us. Once the voters actually start getting what they voted for, ‘good and hard’, I think there will be a backlash that with make 1994 look like a walk in the park. If there is a really-good foreign-policy crisis in the mix – even sooner. Obama simply does not have the leadership, the skills or the experience to impose himself or his ideas on the nation in any significant way. He is Pelosi & Reid’s tame poodle, and as they go, so will he. ‘

    OK, so I was a month or two off.



  • ‘Hobbit porn’? The guy is not my type, but certainly not a hobbit either.

  • David Beatty

    Someone needs to tell Olbermann that he’s been teabagged!

  • Jerry

    It’s called slander.
    Olbermann needs to be sued into a SMALL cardboard box.
    Not MSNBC
    Not the local affiliates
    Not the cameraman and the teleprompter operator.


    Sue him for everything he and every mother’s son of him is worth.
