HAPPY THANKSGIVING

In a slight variation on what has become a Thanksgiving tradition in our nation's capital, President George W. Bush pardoned not one, but two, freakish white turkeys to celebrate the official opening day of the Christmas shopping frenzy.

Reached for comment, an unnamed White House spokesperson denied rumors that the names of the two turkeys pardoned were Karla and Faye.

"Pardoning birds is hard work!" Bush was heard to exclaim. "I'm all tuckered out."

On this Thanksgiving Eve:

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him all creatures, here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost;
Amen.

AIP--
You've been able to kick some butt on RT without unfairly being called a "pilot fish" since I've not been commenting there.
For my part, I told Robert that if Barker wanted to go into the archives and find a comment that shows me changing my take on withdrawal from Iraq based on pronouncements of Dem pols, or active generals, I'd return to RT to admit that I was wrong. Or, if the archives showed I was right, Barker would need to post that evidence and write a retraction.
I'm still waiting.
It's nice to talk to you again. Have a good one.

Happy Turkey Day, Rob. I too miss you on RT.

On the other matter... I'm truly sorry that the truth obviously hurts so much. Oh, well... nothing I can do about it. (*SHRUG*)

"I'm truly sorry that the truth obviously hurts so much..."

Bill--
If it's true, prove it. You've never been loathe to pick through the archives to prove a point before.
Don't drink too much.

It's a shame you can't escape trolls even here...to taunt someone with something that the taunter can't even prove AND wish a Happy Thanksgiving...classy, real classy...for what it's worth, you don't need to let the Bloviater drive you away from RT...I'm sure that was his goal ,probably with you and me both...but echo chambers are so boring to read...

I'm still hoping he'll launch his own blog. Blogs are the perfect venue for the narcissistic; I don't know how he resists the temptation.

An Interested Party said...

Why should he launch his own blog when it is so much easier to simply pollute someone else's with his egotistical delusions of grandeur...

Rodak said...

Yes, there is that. I once got myself 86'd from the blog of a guy similar to Bill, though. The guy had his own little universe created. It was really quite an intricate creation, and he was its pompous god. He had a whole stable of sycophants, singing his praises and presenting their rumps in hopes of getting some attention. I dared to contradict the poor bastard one too many times, and he banished me from his realm. I call him a poor bastard because he really was s-o-o-o needy.
I can see our friend Barker creating such a cyber-theme park, where he could be Mickey and Goofy and Snow White, all rolled into one. And it might be fun to visit.
What I can't tolerate is constantly having my words twisted out of shape and turned against me. The issue of the Iraq withdrawal is trivial in itself. It was just the last straw.

Rob... don't you see the irony here? It was THANKSGIVING DAY... THANKSGIVING NIGHT... it was frigg'n between 8:59 p.m and 10:54 p.m and you and the Pilot Fish are obsessing about *ME* instead of enjoying friends, family, or even quite contemplation and relaxation.

Jeez, Rob... look at yourself... it was 5:41 a.m. - 5:41 in the frigg'n morning - and there you were posting about *ME* and your feelings towards *ME*. You don't think that's a problem...???

Rob... all I can tell you is that I wished you a Happy Thanksgiving in all sincerity and good will. If you wanna respond with a list of grievances, rehashing discussions on ANOTHER WEBSITE... then that's on you. (*SHRUG*)

My advice? Let it go. If you're so damned sure of yourself, of your actions and motivations with regard to your "evolving" views on Iraq, then nothing I "accuse" you of should matter.

Anyway... I have no interest in continuing to go back and forth with you. I'll continue to look in on your blog and comment occasionally when there's a thread I'm interested in. If you'd rather I not do that, simply say the word - you have my email - and I'll delete "Riffs" from my favorites.

Hope your Thanksgiving was... aside from the time spent fixating on *ME*... a good one.

BILL

Bill--
Whatever.
