Couldn’t find his ass with both hands and an ass map

On the Culture War, Phelps illustrates that Chuck Schumer doesn’t get it:

That last line was dripping with sarcasm, because I think in that moment, Jon saw that Schumer still didn’t get it after he spelled it out to him. Jon is on his way to not being part of the problem, and it frustrates him that the Titanic has hit the iceberg, and Schumer is still wrenching the helm into the floe.

It isn’t that people don’t get what you are saying, Chuck, they just don’t agree with you. They have figured out that when they are having trouble stretching a paycheck, the solution isn’t to have you take more of that paycheck and spend it for them.

First, I despise Chuck Schumer for his role in trying to turn the Waco hearings into an opportunity for a gun control screed instead of dealing with the real issue, which was whether or not the government got a little out of control. Now, as it was in the past, he doesn’t get it. It’s a good thing. Chuck is an old-school, regional Democrat and I’d like nothing more than to see him go the way of Daschle but that’s not going to happen anytime soon. Additionally, Phelps writes:

Here’s the deal. You can take someone from Sugerland, Texas, and plop him down at the airport in NYC, or Chicago, or Atlanta or Dallas or any big city, and he’ll do fine. I wonder sometimes if you could do the same with a New Yorker. We get New York culture, even if we don’t accept it. I don’t think that the average New Yorker even gets any culture outside New York and Hollywood.

Indeed. If you watched TV, you would think there was only New York. How many TV show story lines are based in New York? We need a Maryville sitcom, but I digress. I think Phelps nails it. We middle-Americans get the Media Elites (to use Jon Stewart’s term) we just don’t like it. However, they absofuckinglutely do not get us. At all. Period. And apparently have no desire to.

    We had one. It was called ‘Roseanne’. In better days it was called ‘Andy of Mayberry’.

    Don’t be so sure. He’s only in office now because no one bothers to challenge him because of the war chest. He’s not exactly admired up here. He’s also as dumb as a rock. The Democrat’s version of Pataki – inoffensive, unimaginative, barely competent, and in love with his own image.

    He could be toast with the right challenger. Fuck – I’d love to see Elliot Spitzer fight him for the seat.

    Pot calling the kettle black here. This is cultural elitism at its finest. Most “New Yorkers” have zippo in common with Seinfeld, Will & Grace, Friends, et. al.

    So many people (like myself)recently migrated from other states. More importantly, a substantial number of residents in NYC are from another country.

    I’d say Red Staters are just as clueless about the “real” New York as many New Yorkers are about the “real” Midwest or “real” South. What yu see as a tourist is about as authentic as judging the heartland by the standards of Branson or Pigeon Forge.

    Phelps is just as ignorant as those he’s critizing.

    IS THIS A BLOG? I DONT BLOG. NONE OF MY FRIENDS BLOG. WHY DO YOU BLOG? IS BLOGGING FUN? WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO HAVE YOUR OWN BLOG? DO GIRLS BLOG?

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
