Playboy Survey: College Girls Want To Have Sex With Both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie | Main | They'll "Modify" Crescent of Embrace "Memorial"
September 15, 2005

Stupid? Or Clever-Yet-Stupid Spoof?

I don't know.

Okay, so when you're invited to check out a site called Pre$$titutes, you're already kinda tipped off you might not exactly be dealing with a quality organization.

"Presstitutes" would be bad enough. It's a bad pun. Wait, it's not even a pun. I don't know what you call that kind of joke. Personally, I call it retarded.

And then-- no, they can't leave it at that. "Presstitutes" isn't tasteless and cretinous enough for them; they have to add in those dollar signs.

"Presstitutes" -- cheap wanton streetwalker

"Pre$$titutes" -- even cheaper gutterskank who's had more tricks in the last hour than teeth in her head

But then I started to think this was some sort of conservative parody. Why? Well, for one thing, they sent me an email. A mass email, yeah, but somehow I was on their list.

And also I read this-- this, their list of people in the media who shill for Bush and give him a "pass" and lean just too goshdarn far to the right:

Wolf Blitzer, Chris Matthews, Paula Zahn, Dana Milbank, Howard Kurtz, Kyra Phillips, Bill Schneider, Tim Russert, Howard Fineman, Norah O'Donnell, Elizabeth Bumiller, Adam Nagourney, the Bush apologists at ABC's The Note and others with a similar veneer of neutrality exert a more insidious influence on the public debate than rabid partisans like Limbaugh, Coulter, and Hannity.

Do you see that list? Adam Nagourney? Dana Milbank? Chris Matthews? Elizabeth Bumiller? It's like a 1927 Yankees Murderer's Row of liberal partisanship.

So I don't know. A goof or not? If it's real, I guess I don't want to give them the traffic; but then, I have a feeling that all the links in the world won't help them.

If it's a goof... well, let's see how far they can go with this. I've always kinda wanted to do a left-wing blog and see how long it would take until people figured out I was just shitting them.

And... well, see, they have a gimmick: they'll send you $10 by PayPal for each instance of the press covering up for Bush you send their way.

Now, you can say, for example, that a piece about high gas prices fails to mention that President Bush flew out to Iraq under cover of darkness to personally murder Casey Sheehan. Or stuff like that. And you can do that all day.

Fifty, sixty emails an hour, ten bucks a pop... a man could do worse. A man could do worse.

Thanks to Lorie of PoliPundit, who prints a good reader email suggesting the media is missing a great opportunity to inform the country about disaster-preparedness in order to futilely chase after the presidential Road Runner that is George Bush.
