No, There’s no Double-Standard here. None at All. Move Along. (genghis)

Fuck. I was just about to go to sleep when I read about this. But not before this goes up. We’ve finally gone through the looking glass. Upside? I've been assured we'll all look prettier/more handsome there. Also, we get pills that can make us bigger or smaller...so it seems to balance out.

From CNN we get the following: Two Arrested After Obama Effigy Found on Campus.”

”(CNN) -- Two men have been arrested in connection with an effigy of Sen. Barack Obama that was hung outside a building at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, police said Thursday.”

“Authorities found a life-size effigy of the Democratic presidential candidate hanging from a tree outside the school's Mines and Minerals building on Wednesday morning, police said.”

“Police said they arrested Joe Fischer, 22, a senior at the university, and Hunter Bush 21, a former student at Bluegrass Community and Technical College. “

“"This was a serious incident. It caused a lot of wounds to be opened from racial tension," Monroe said.”

OK. So far, so good. And they look like little sweethearts from their mugshots. (Admittedly, as most of us know first-hand, it’s a bit trying to look your best in a mugshot.) Note emphasis on the latter alleged perp’s last name…I assure you the Kos Kidz have, or will have after they roll outta’ bed at the crack of noon on Friday. Also, what’s up with that first name, “Hunter?” This guy was born and bred to kill. As for the other one, Fischer, I don’t need to spell it out for you, but I will phonetically: Joooo.

So, yeah, these two grabasstic pieces o’ shit are gonna’ stand tall in front of The Man. And hey: Thanks, guys, for helping out on the cause! While you’re out on parole can we count on you to do some door-knocking for us? ‘Cause that’d help us out big time, you see. Stupid suckers of cock.

Meanwhile: (and this has been posted earlier), but we’re playing “compare and contrast,” so try and keep up with this, would’ja?” Think apples and oranges, or in your case; magazine porn vs. dvd porn. Both have their own plusses and minuses.

From a few days ago we have this: “Sarah Palin Effigy Hanged From House”

”An effigy of US Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin hanging by a noose as part of a Halloween display has drawn severe criticism, but local officials said the homeowner was covered by free speech rights.”

“A mannequin dressed to resemble the Alaska governor, with her trademark beehive hairdo and glasses, was hung by the neck from the eaves of the home in West Hollywood.”

(editor’s note: it’s of small importance, but it’s not a “beehive” hairdo, fer chrissakes…Google it!)

“On the roof, a mannequin of Republican presidential candidate John McCain protruded from the chimney surrounded in flames, holding his head as he was apparently burned alive”

But all is well:

"We have been getting some phone calls complaining about it but if (the homeowner) isn't in violation of municipal code we have no reason to cite them," West Hollywood spokeswoman Helen Goss said.”

"People have First Amendment rights (to free speech)," Goss said. "I would speculate that if it's part of a Halloween display then its political satire."

See? We got that all cleared up now. It’s all good. The homeowner/satirist leaves us with a telling quote though:
”I know if we had done Barack Obama, people would have probably thrown things through our windows," Morisette said. "The image of a hanged black man is a lot more intense than the image of a hanged white woman for our country, the history of our country."

I’m glad we got this little matter wrapped up…meanwhile, I’ll just be hanging around here

Note:CNN did run the story of the Palin effigy in Hollywood a week or so ago, but it only rated a little link on their “latest news” list. This story, about the Obama effigy (starring our “friends” from Kentucky) merited their top-notch primary story location at the upper-left of their site, including the mugshots of the two dipshits. As I’ve been typing this, they’ve moved the article over to the “latest news” column and have replaced it with a story about the latest breakthrough in flying-car technology. At least I think they did.
