More Supportin' The Troops At The Daily Kos!

A. Whitney Brown, who was never funny on SNL for the brief period they allowed him 60 second bits on Weekend Update. And now his career is so scary-ascendant he's reduce to doing YouTube videos.

Maybe he should just do a lip-sync to SexyBack next time, like the eight million other nobodies on YouTube. Would undoubtedly be funnier and more innovative.

Transcript below the fold if you don't want to watch this has-been. Did I say has-been? That would imply once having been a been, right? Not a has-been, a never-was.

Via LGF, Hot Air, and little ol' Sinistar.

And via Hot Air, this Important Action Alert and Pretty Vicious Rant from Kos himself, telling his readers to stop writing their true beliefs and get with the program of pretending they support the troops. Guess A. Whitney Brown wasn't set the memo; but then, everyone forgets about him. Lorne Michaels sure did. Guy was on the show for like three years due entirely to a payroll error.

Sinistar advises: Get screencaps! This post will soon be nonposted in another Stalinesque purge.

Screencapped: I got the whole post and the begging of the comments (down to the guy saying he "appreciated the snark"), but there are a lot of comments, and I'd kind of like to get them all. But it would take a while.

If you take a screencap of the comments, post what you got (from which comment to which comment) so that people know that page is covered.

You guys mind doing a group effort taking a page of comments at a time? In order to see just how much the DailyKos and the new left "supports the troops"?

Whoops--Forgot The Link: Here's that post on Daily Kos... if it still exists.


Hello, I’m A. Whitney Brown, and I support our brave troops overseas. We all do and we all should. But what about those troops who are not so brave? Perhaps they just signed up hoping for some extra money for college, for the medical insurance, or even some hot gay military sex. Suddenly they find themselves in Iraq for the fourth or fifth time and they’re not so brave. In fact they're crapping in their pants. Shouldn’t we support them just as much? I think we should. In fact we should support them more, because a brave man does but once, whereas a coward dies a thousand deaths. And we should say we support them, because, frankly, it just doesn’t get said often enough. Imagine, for example, if anytime any politician mentions any aspect of the war they prefaced their statement by saying ‘I support our troops’, or ‘I support our brave troops’ or even ‘I support our brave troops, even though some of them are gay or scared shitless’. And not just politicians, but religious leaders, news people, commercial businesses, beverage makers, car companies, defense lobbyists - they should all say they support our troops whenever they’re trying to sell their products or pimp their talking points. Because it’s the right thing to say. Now, I can’t make people say they support our troops. But if I’m the only one who’s willing to stand up and say ‘I support our troops’, then I’ll say it; I support our troops - cowards, queers, and all. Now I know there are some cynics out there thinking, sure you say you support our troops but what do you actually mean by ‘support’? That’s a fair question and all I can say in response is that any one asking that question is a traitorous bastard and probably should be hung for treason. But to answer the question, what I mean when I say I support our troops is that I actually pay for their food, their ammo, their upkeep, transport, everything. I pay for all of it. And I do that not only because I’m a patriotic American, although I am, but also because they take 35% out of my check every week and if I don’t pay it I will end up in jail. That is what I mean by ‘I support our troops’. I mean I am involuntarily, under threat of prison, forced to pay for their support. Now do I resent that? You’re damn right I do. Because it is stupid as hell. Other countries pay taxes, but they get something for it, like health care. What do I get? I get to kill a bunch of Iraqis. Whoopdeedoo. What am I going to do with a bunch of dead Iraqis? Plus I don’t even get to keep them. I mean, I might like to have a skull or something to use as a paperweight, on my desk. I’m not saying I would, but it might be a nice gesture to send out a few skulls out to those of us who are paying the cost. You know you can adopt a kid for 15 dollars a month in Brazil or somewhere and you get pictures of them living their miserable lives. But I have paid hundreds of dollars in taxes over my lifetime, hundreds of dollars, and I don’t have so much as a single picture of an Iraqi child that I paid to have killed. It would be nice to just have something, you know, to remember them by.... a picture, a lock of hair, perhaps a necklace of ears... So yes, I resent my support for the killing of Iraqis for which I get not even a memento or trophy. But do I still support the individual men and women who have given so much to serve their country? No. I think they’re a bunch of idiots. I also think they’re morally retarded. Because they sign a contract that says they will kill whoever you tell me to kill. And that is morally retarded. Friends, the most important moral decision a man makes in the course of a day is "Who am I going to kill today?" That’s a decision you should agonize over, dream about, rehearse in your mind for hours, not just leave up to some hare-brained President you didn’t even vote for. A man’s killing list is a very personal matter. It should be between him and those persistent voices in his head. So to sum up, I don’t like our troops, I don’t like what they’re doing, I don’t like their fat, whining families, and yet, I support them. Thank God I live in a free country. Thank You.
