I know some people who claim that Megyn Kelly is really smart, and that she considers her role at Fox News to be performance art. I just can't buy that.
Correction, Dec. 10, 2013: This article originally misidentified penguins as mammals. They are birds.

next you will tell us Abraham Lincoln wasn't white?
Except that we can do better, and purposes are not objectively, measurable things. Purposes are just post hoc rationalizations to make us feel better.
you don't like blogging about crap TV? Dude, stay tuned. Paul Constant is an expert at finding stupid shit to talk about. You'll catch on, if you're unlucky.
If you really have such a personal and puerile vendetta against Paul Constant, the best way for you to express it is to never click on anything he posts or writes.
If you can help yourself. But of course you can't. You are that pathetic.
Great advice, although I'm not interested in any such thing called the "best way." Thanks for your concern.
Archie Bunker: Santa ain't black.
George Jefferson: The man who filled my stocking on Christmas Eve was black.
A commenter a few weeks ago wrote with confidence that the audience demographic of The Stranger is 25 year olds, and with 25 being the new 15, I guess we gotta keep a teenager frame of mind here.
And damn, she's a racist piece of shit.
Aisha Harris really seems to think that Santa should be a penguin.
it's reassuring to hear you insult me in the same way as other commenters insult me. because the others, they are new names to me, within the last 6 months, possibly a year. i vacillate on how offended I should be or how serious I should consider them, and I question my stupidity. but then you Fnarf come to insult me in the same manner, and I've been reading your comments for several years. and i definitely know you're far from being the sharpest tack. in essence, you cancel out the other similar insults that I've been at times in a quandary over.
HUH? Christ I live in Utah and I haven't heard this one. Who you hangin out with?
And I know Jesus is white, because Albrecht Durer told me so.
Everyone thinks all of your posts are stupid. It's likely you're pretty goddamn stupid in person too (but whether you actually are or aren't isn't something I give a flying fuck about).
What a legacy, man. You just post one stupid thing after another in an endless stream of shit. And 90% of us just skip over 99% of your posts anyway.
So, way to go, I suppose. You found something to excel at, and that thing is useless and stupid.
P.s. how's your dead, decomposing grandmother, fuckwit?
I can buy that she is really smart, but I would theorize that her actions are just cynically doing the job of propaganda for Fox News. At least she doesn't seem to be the same kind of hateful shit that Ann Coulter is. But that might be more a matter of personal style than moral substance.
So people ignore you. But that doesn't mean they don't like you. Nobody here likes you; nobody here finds you interesting in any way shape or form -- not even in the way we find the rabid right-wingers interesting. We can argue with them; we can't argue with you, because you don't make any sense.
But lately you're starting to make a little sense, and it's scary, because it's not any smarter, just nastier. It doesn't make anyone want to read your posts more, that's for sure. You've got some kind of a thing for Paul Constant, which, if I had to guess, springs from your anger that he can formulate intelligible sentences and you can't. It's not because you have an issue with his arguments, because you don't understand his arguments.
When you were incomprehensible, you were ignorable. Now that you're getting mean, it's getting harder to ignore you. So please: fuck off. Go away. Stop commenting here. Find something else to do. Move to Idaho or something. You will never find a connection here with anyone, even the other bitter, illiterate dipshits.
There's some historical European guy who got morphed into the Santa myth. Or the mythical Santa can be whatever color you want him to be because he's a pretend man who lives at the North Pole with elves and flying reindeer.
I'm just glad that all the people discussing an issue regarding race are white. (/sarcasm)
It's like you think you're the smartest person commenting here. And it's like you think that OTHER people also think you're the smartest person here. But you're just so smart that nobody else can make any sense of you.
But it's not true. It's not that nobody else here is smart enough to make any sense of you. It's just that you actually don't make any sense.
You're a nuisance. You're that house fly buzzing around your room during the day when you're just trying to take a nap. It's harmless and for the most part you can ignore it but every once in a while it drives you crazy and you just have to take a couple of shots at it.
Dnt trust me's MO is to post increasingly nasty or idiotic things until he lures someone into responding giving him the opportunity for his very own passive agressive happy ending. This thread alone must have cost him an entire box of Kleenex.
I know the advise to "ignore the troll" is hard but in this case ignore him because it will hurt him. No one here likes him. No one on the Stranger staff likes him including the few he occasionally praises. They don't care if likes them or not. They think he's a tool, mock him, and never, ever respond to him.
So let's do the same. Let his comments stack up, talk about him with each other but never to him, and let him die inside.
Ok, I've made four comments on this thread. You're hell bent on saying I don't make sense, please provide an example where I'm not making sense, 2 or 3 examples preferred if you want to prove your point.
It should be a Christmas puffin.
I give you S.Claus: Jolly Old Elf or Crazed Middle-Eastern Terrorist?
Based on available evidence, I'd put him on the no-fly list in a New York minute!
That is hilarious. I've just cancelled my Friday night plans because I think I'll be in a fit of laughter for the next 48 hrs. You know just how to tickle my funny bone Fbarf.
The Greasemonkey script I used to use to use no longer works with the latest Firefox. And the author hasn't replied to my emails. So maybe it's time we cooked up a homegrown solution...?
Or, goddammit, maybe the geniuses at The Starnger could be arsed to block some of the stupider trolls... howzabout it, guys?
Anyway, here's her response to Kelly:
In the actual response, Harris says outright that she intended to be tongue-in-cheek.
you are fat.
It was that, above all else, that gave away the fact that they're just screwing around and wasting time with this... segment. The guy conflating a black Santa with a drag queen Santa, or that portraying a fictional character as anything but white would be something "our social fabric can take" was a wink for the liberal viewers though. Homophobia and xenophobia for the win at Fox News.
2. The historical Saint Nicholas was a bishop who lived in what is now Turkey. Scientists commissioned by the Vatican predicted that he would probably have had dark skin for a Caucasian.
I guess what these people are reacting to is the idea that, "Hey, we should change all our drawings of Santa Claus so that he doesn't look white because it's BAD that he looks white. Because he's not a historical figure like Abraham Lincoln, then we MUST make him non-white." I don't see why Santa Claus or anyone else being white is inherently bad. He's one character, not an ensemble cast, so he's got to be something. I can see why people would get defensive about that.
Evidently some people have a real problem with Santa being not-white. Those people are idiots.
Frosty's still white, amirite?
Except for the big yellow patch around knee level.
Thanks, and I'll check in here every once in a while. And, apropos another thread, glad your daughters are safe. Mine are, too.
Awesome@58: Thanks, also. Blocking a registered commenter is pretty much the nuclear option. I like to think I would use such terrifying power wisely: avoid the temptation to erase commenters I merely disagree with, and zap only the ones whose apparent intention is to suck all intelligence out of a thread.
I wasn't aware of the script, but Matt's mention of the writer's name, which is unusual, made googling easy. Dr. Awesome says it won't work any longer, but I think this must be where w7ngman offered the blocking script.
