It can be discouraging to look around at who's running the show these days and wonder "Where have all
the grown-ups gone?"
Take heart. There are still some people who are not drinking the Kool-aid. Here's where to find them. I would
suggest going gown this list every day and printing off the most recent articles you haven't read to read over
Michelle Malkin is a feisty conservative bastion. You loved her book "Unhinged" and you can read her columns here. Ann Coulter
Ann posts her new column every Thursday, or you can browse her past columns. George Will
What can you say? It's George Will. Read it.
posts every Friday. Just a good, smart conservative columnist.
If you want someone who gets it just as right, but is easier to read, try
who just posts at random times.
Jonah Goldbert seldom
David Limbaugh carries on the family tradition.
If you have to read the news, I recommend
The Nose on Your Face, news so fake you'd swear it came from the Mainstream Media.
HT to Sid for the link.
Or there's always
The Onion. (For the benefit of you Obama Supporters,
it's a spoof.)
Or just follow the links above and to the right of this section (you can't have read all my archived articles
already). If you have read all my articles (you need to get out more) go to my
I'm Not Falling For It section.
Above all, try to stay calm. Eventually I may post something again.
Could someone please tell me what the slogan was? You can't say "slogan that was misspelled" without spelling it out unless it's something everyone automatically knows when you allude to it, but that you just can't print, like the Alzheimer's cancer joke.
I've only seen one thing this week more amazing than this:
Has it been a week already since I mentioned Salvador Allende? I got a task update on my phone saying it was time to flap my gums some more about Salvador Allende and what he did to Chile.
In keeping with my editorial policy of allowing all viewpoints to be heard, I wanted to share with you this article, which
is an interesting contrasting opinion commenting on the recent Chilean mine rescue. The author takes the more conventional wisdom viewpoint about Augusto Pinochet.
I'm sure you've never seen this kind of a person. If you're a mechanic you'll be at a party and someone will come up to you "So, you're a mechanic, huh?" Yeah, you'll say. Then you wait for it. "You know, my car is like, making this like, noise. What do you think it could be?"
I'm sure doctors get the same thing. "I have this, kinda' like, pain? What do you think it might be?" Lawyers maybe not as much, because anyone approaching you knows that you're going to send them a bill for $300 just for saying hello.
And heaven help you if you know anything about computers. You're going to be spending your whole life fixing ID-10T errors.
It's funny because the squirrel dies--I mean, because it has a grain of truth to it. But in general, people you know aren't mooches.
Most people, if they do ask, want to compensate you, even if it's making you a batch of cookies. And I've been amazed at how people have come forward to help with the Eagle project. Thousands of dollars worth of skilled labor and equipment, no exaggeration. People donating the use of $300/hr. lift trucks and quarter million dollar CNC plasma cutters. If this were any other site I'd have to say it's inspirational (Hank Hill--Bobby, if you weren't my son I'd give you a big hug).
But I ran "sweet talk about helping your fellow man" vs. "general people bashing" through the patented Leany Humormetric Calculator, and bashing kicked sweet talk all around the block.
Today is Thursday
You know what that means--Ann Coulter posts today.
She's always on the top of the list in the daily Townhall e-mail of new columns.
They had her piece titled "There's a Reason Why They Call Him Dick."
After my teeth quit smarting from the fingernails on the chalkboard effect, I opened her
column on AnnCoulter.com. I hit Ctrl-F and typed in "reason why" and got the extremely gratifying
news that "No instances were found."
She'll be gratified to know she hasn't lost a reader.
Months ago Laura Ingraham said "If it weren't for the Iraq war, Obama wouldn't be President."
I thought that was an interesting take. Obviously she's talking about Obama using that to successfully
outmaneuvered Hillary in the primary.
Apropos of nothing . . . I'm just following the rules.
Chilean Mine Rescue
We've seen these things before, and they never have happy endings. I would have lost this bet.
Two months? You've got to be kidding. And for the first 17 days these 33 guys had no clue if anyone even
knew they were alive.
I share an office with a guy for 8 hours a day. We can leave any time we want, and we still get in an average of
three fistfights a day.
I watched the first miner come up from the San Jose mine in Chile last night. I had technical questions about the
layout of the mine, etc. most of which were answered by these
diagrams of the mine.
Better check it out. Uh . . . yeah, it is in Spanish. I hope that's not a problem for anyone (you racist!).
I love to say I told you so . . .
It's right there in the scriptures. Gifts of the Spirit, it's called. You know, prophecy and all that . . .
I told you. I told you that when Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Anti-Christ, committed some heinous act he would
inform us by accusing someone else of it.
Obama is doing the bidding of foreign interests who are giving him money. He told us himself.
"You don't know where the Chamber of Commerce is getting its money! It could be from one-eyed aliens from Mars who
are laying plans to invade the planet!"
Huh. You're not surprised that a criminal always ascribes criminal intent to others. You're not even surprised that a
tinhorn crackpot dictator like Obama will attack anyone whose lips are not surgically attached to his tuckus.
But it is revealing that the accusation involves taking money from foreign entities.
Now you know. When Obama set up the anonymous donations for his campaign, you just figured it was a way to get money
illegally from people who had already donated the maximum. As he's explaining, it also allowed him to get money from
foreign entities who do not have America's best interests at heart.
Remember what it was like to have a grown up in the Oval Office? I was trying to come up with an analogy involving
kindergarten, but either the children in my kindergarten were extra mature or five year olds in general don't say
"Little Denise said something mean about me? You don't know, she could have spit in your bologna sandwich while you were out
Honestly, is there a bigger putz on the planet than Barack Obama? I've never seen or heard of anybody who had thinner
skin than that dork. It's annoying in any human being, but in a President of a nation? It's dangerous.
Of course you don't want your name on the list of people who oppose the emperor. Whenever a two-bit dictator like the
Crybaby-in-Chief finds out someone isn't kissing his ring, he'll use the full power and might of the federal government
to go after them. These are the people that publish the social security numbers of people they don't like. They tell lies
about them to get their little minions riled up, then publish their home addresses.
God help you if you're a Limbaugh/Beck/Hannity. You are going to get audited every year, and if you ever have a broken
tail light you are going to prison. That's how you get Unity. That's how you win an election with 92% of the vote if
you're Hugo Chavez.
Hugo Chavez. Salvador Allende, Ahmadinejad, Castro, Obama. Peas in a pod.
Scenes We'd Like to See
I've never really wanted to live in Florida. You know what would make me move there? If Dan Webster walked onto the
stage to debate Al Grayson and punched him right in the face. I would move to Florida just to vote for Webster.
See, that's why I'll never be a politician. In my world a Dan Webster would break the guy's jaw in front of God and
the TV cameras, then stand over him saying "Did you really think you were going to just lie about me with no
consequences at all?"
Reasoned debate is one thing. You can talk, disagree, argue policy, persuade, and convince all day long. But when you
tell lies--especially like the ones Grayson tells--you've left the arena where we discuss and entered one where we fight.
In one arena there's rules. In the other there ain't.
The Gun is Civilization
You may have see this article attributed to Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret), but it was actually written by a German-born,
US citizen by the name of Marko Kloos.
It doesn't matter. Actually, the only thing that I don't like about this piece is that I didn't write it myself.
(I have a feeling 'Joe' is going to be getting this e-mailed to every day until he blocks my incoming mail.)
It's called The Gun is Civilization.
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you,
you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or forcing me to do your bidding. Every human interaction
falls into one of those two categories. Reason or force, that's it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people would exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a
valid method of social interaction. The thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical
as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a
way to negate your threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year
old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunken
guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker
and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think
that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for an armed mugger
to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or
by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.
The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter.
It works well as a force equalizer because it is both lethal and easily employable. A mugger--even an armed one--can
only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
People who argue for the banning of firearms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many--and that's
the exact opposite of a civilized society.
Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury.
This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior
party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone.
The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because
it enables me to be unafraid.
It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who
would do so by force.
And that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
I did send the article to 'Joe.' He responded:
The author missed the most powerful force in human relationships, a force that eclipses all others and leaves reason
and compulsion aghast in its wake—Love. Imagine what society would be like if everyone strapped on love instead of S&W.
So I answered back:
What a coincidence! Today is the start of National Hug a Mugger Week.
More Joe Sobran
Here's a great little article about how gummint works.
When your child is a little older, you can teach him about our tax system in a way that is easy to grasp. Offer him,
say, $10 to mow the lawn. When he has mowed it and asks to be paid, withhold $5 and explain that this is income tax.
Give $1 to his younger brother, and tell him that this is "fair". Also, explain that you need the other $4 yourself to
cover the administrative costs of dividing the money. When he cries, tell him he is being "selfish" and "greedy".
Later in life he will thank you.
How 'bout that Colbert testimony?
Breitbart vs. The Morons
This is the ultimate illustration of Evil/Stupid. The organizers (evil) round up these unemployed homeless people
(stupid), give them ten bucks, a free meal, a fifth of whiskey, and a bus ride. And all they have to give in return
is the last ounce of their dignity.
Honestly, it just makes me tired.
This is almost sad to watch. It's like when you kill wasps. You're glad the little b@$*&%^%#s are dying, but you
don't like to watch them writhing in the dirt while they do.
Let's look at the glass half full aspect of this. Taking the stupidest homeless and unemployed people in the country
and herding them to an Astroturf protest keeps them from designing rocketships and doing brain surgery.
Protester: "We're here to stop the hate!"
Question: "Can you name one hateful thing Beck has said?"
Insightful concise intelligent answer: "I . . . uh . . . you . . . uh . . . I . . . I'm not falling into your trap."
(You already did, when you let the SEIU organizers hire you for this protest)
Sign: Beck Lies!
Question: "Could you name something that he has lied about?"
Answer: "Probably everything."
Question: Okay, then it should be pretty easy to just tell me one of them.
Answer: "Uh . . . "
Question: "How is Beck a coward?"
Response: Protester runs away
Again, if I thought for one second that the people in the crowd believed any of what they're saying,
I would cheer when you doused them with napalm and lit them on fire. But they don't. They spent last
night in a refrigerator box. They will do anything for a ham sandwich.
Speaking of refrigerators, the behemoth who's herding the dupes away from any intelligent people with microphones,
she's one of the organizers. She needs to be lit up with a flamethrower.
Hey, at least you can't accuse me of trying to chill free speech. I'm advocating lighting that sucker up.
Obviously, this is not Free Speech. This is exploitation of mindless idiots.
Not a big fan
I'd have to guess this truck is not driven by an Obama supporter.
(Click on picture for larger image)
Hah! I'm so silly. Can you imagine an Obama supporter driving a truck?
You need to watch this cute little video. Because, really, who doesn't love to see school children blown to bloody bits?
As Michelle Malkin says, the message is clear. If you don't comply with the whackos' demands on how to run your life, you'll be destroyed. At the end of the video they even make it clear that governments are behind this, so don't bother resisting.
They forget, they can make movies threatening to blow up people who disagree with them, but we still have all the guns.
So now I have two sets of keys for all my cars. One to open the door and one that stays in the ignition, because I leave my cars running around the clock just to annoy the cretins of the world. I even have two old beaters up on blocks that just sit there polluting all day.
I love the planet, but make no mistake( (c)2010 Obama Propaganda Inc.): I would destroy it just to piss off these imbeciles.
Fortunately, I can't. Even if I could afford to buy gas in Obama's economy, my puny efforts (or those of a billion puny humans like me) aren't going to make one bit of difference.
This is because, as every non-idiot already knows,
The Earth Doesn't Care. My running all my cars all day long isn't going to make any more difference than all of the ridiculous measures the morons are proposing. These idiots have not one clue about what they're dealing with.
To be fair, not all of them are complete idiots. Some of them are just indescribably evil. They are just trying to get money and power by exploiting complete idiots.
And as long as you're reading the common sense environmental views of George Will, read Green with Guilt.
In a weird way, by losing the Congress, Obama may well see the economy rebound -- a turnabout for which he'll take credit, despite the failure of his earlier massive borrowing schemes that will seem like ancient history by 2012.
But if Republicans take over Congress, they -- not Obama -- can be blamed for the failure to enact the liberal dream. Obama can nostalgically soar with hope-and-change platitudes about his aborted left-wing vision, with the assurance that there is absolutely no chance he will offend the majority of Americans by seeing any of it passed.
It is as Edmund Burke said, "The fate of good men who refuse to become involved in politics is to be ruled by evil men."
Then, I am grateful to David Limbaugh, because I was never going to be able to keep up on
the large and growing list of Obama's offenses. Honestly, people, what is it going to take? Are you asleep? On drugs? What in the hell is the matter with you that you are sitting on your hands watching this happen?
Are you waiting for a registered letter that says "This is what Armageddon looks like. The Bible version had some literary compression going on. Sorry, I thought you were bright enough to understand that. Love, God."?
And, in your continuing quest to understand what in the crap drives that lunatic that we elected to run our country, you'll probably find it interesting what
this guy has to say in light of
the article by Dinesh D'Souza's that you read about the colonialism angle.
I was prepared to be disappointed by the Ann Coulter column today.
My friend Joe Sobran died last Thursday, and the world lost its greatest writer.
But it turned out to be pretty good. She quoted a lot of his stuff. Behold, my favorites:
It was Joe who came up with the apocryphal New York Times headline: "New York Destroyed by Earthquake; Women and Minorities Hit Hardest."
"Your enemies can never hurt you, only your friends can."
"I note that my enemies have written a great deal about me, yet they rarely quote me directly. Why not? If I am so disreputable myself, I must at least occasionally say disreputable things. Is it possible that what I say is more cogent than they like to admit?"
On Clinton: "Once again, his defenders, furiously attacking the prosecution and equating opposition with 'conspiracy,' don't dare mount the best defense: 'He's not that sort of man.' It's because Clinton is, supremely, 'that sort of man' that this whole thing has happened. He's a lying lecher, a prevaricating pervert, an utterly slimy crook, without a trace of honor or loyalty, desperately trying to save his own skin one last time."
On big government: "Freedom has ceased to be a birthright; it has come to mean whatever we are still permitted to do."
On Obama: "Nor has he said anything memorable -- not even a single aphorism over this long campaign. And the title of his book 'The Audacity of Hope' -- what on earth does that mean? He is always hinting at a substance that is never disclosed to us. He seems to live by raising vague aspirations he never fulfills."
And my favorite:
[Coulter said] I've often used a Sobran observation to explain why I have a greater affinity to Israel than to the Muslim world after 9/11: Watching a death-match fight on Animal Planet once, Joe said he found himself instinctively rooting for the mammal over the reptile.
GOP's gift to Obama
The demorats are about to get massacred in November. It couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.
Hugh Hewitt: Never has a Congress deserved a pummeling more than this one . . . do not vote for a single Democrat for any office. When a party betrays the promises its leader makes, that party should be punished. If politics has any guarantees at all, it ought to be this: Break your word, and voters will break your party.
Someone observed how bad it is for those schmucks:
Former Vice President Walter Mondale even offered advice to Obama: Lose the teleprompter (which he less than charitably referred to as an "idiot board"). Mondale, you might recall, ran against President Ronald Reagan in 1984 -- and lost 49 states. When a guy like that offers advice, things are grim.
It's like when the lady at the townhall meeting said she was sick and tired of defending Obama and whether the horrible situation that he had brought upon her was her new reality. An NPR (I believe) commentator was saying that Bill Clinton would have let her know that he "felt her pain." Limbaugh said "How bad is it when your side is saying 'You're not even as good as Bill Clinton?'"
But it's never a walk in the park. You remember when I told Obama supporters before the 2008 election: Your worst nightmare is about to come true? What? Our guy is going to win. How is that a nightmare for us?
Back then it was because the gild was going to come off the lilly. They were going to see what a putz their guy really was. His incompetence was going to let down all the fools who expected that he would actually govern and his impotence was going to let down the ones who knew what he was and were expecting their communist utopia.
The point is, winning has its liabilities.
Same thing with the Republican Revolution of 2010. I think it was Victor Davis Hanson who recently wrote on what I've talked about in the past. (I really didn't mean to sound like Michael Savage there . . . really.)
Once the GOP controls Congress, things will start to improve. You saw it happen when they took over in 1995. You saw the reverse happen when the enemy took over Congress in 2007.
Once that happens Obama will claim credit for all of it. Just like Clinton did. And everything that he does wrong he will blame on the Republicans, because they're in power. If only he had been allowed to implement his socialism, it would all be daffodils and butterflies.
You've seen him operate this way. Do not bet against it. You will lose.
Hey, who are you calling lazy? You won't even click on a simple link to an article!
But who's counting?
Here's a picture of the million-man rally that the liberals held in Washington DC last weekend.
I saw clips of that lunatic . . . can't even remember the old fool's name . . . ranting about Glenn Beck and the tea parties. The caption said "Actor . . . " then his name. Shoulda' said "Former Actor."
Look at all the people they attracted! There must be at least 100 people there! I wish it had been that empty the Sunday morning in August when I was walking around the place. It's like Ann Coulter said, "I guess they just wanted to get the last 10,000 Obama supporters in America all together in one place one last time.
Now look at the crowd at Glenn Beck's 8/28 rally.
Not that it matters, but this crowd of 500,000 people is the one the dinosaur/drive-by/state-controlled media dismissed as about 80,000 people. Coulter said, "they must estimate crowds by the amount of trash they leave behind."
Some cretin named Sholz, who nobody in America would ever hear if Hannity/Beck/Limbaugh didn't play clips of the idiot, said "That's just the standard amount of people milling around there on any given day."
'Joe' said "Aw, they were all spread out on blankets and stuff to make it look like more people." It's driving the left crazy.
And if it's driving the left crazy you know it's a very good thing.
I heard it here first
As long as I'm sounding like Savage, tooting my horn about the stuff I came up with before I heard someone else say it (in the 12 minutes every week that I listen to someone else) . . .
O'Reilly had Bernie Goldberg on the other night. Goldberg said "Isn't it ironic that the left is the group who have rendered the term 'Racist' irrelevant?"
Dang, I wish I'd have thought of that . . .
Oh, wait . . .
And now, for something completely different . . .
A friend visited here and said something about "Yuck! It's all political stuff!"
Just when you were wondering "Do I still need a note from a doctor certifying that I am insane to register as a democrat?"
Congress ends all doubt. To help them sort out the migrant worker issue they had Stephen Colbert's make-believe Bill O'Reilly
character testify in a congressional hearing.
I'm so naive. I thought people were just poking fun. Colbert testifies and, since he's an enemy of the right, talk show hosts
and columnists kid around about Colbert's make-believe character testifying instead of him. Congress asks Johnny Depp to testify
and you know there are going to be jokes about pirates.
But in the Colbert case Congress did not ask Johnny Depp to testify; they actually asked Captain Jack Sparrow. Seriously. Honestly,
if I were making this up it wouldn't be nearly as funny. This was in Newsweek, not Mad Magazine.
No, I think it's great. I can't wait until next week when Jack Bauer testifies on terrorism.
How do you parody a parody? It's genius. The democrats come up with something so ridiculous--so stupid--that we can't possibly
make it more ludicrous than it is.
If the president is ever too busy golfing , Congress can just get Martin Sheehan to give the State of the Union address. Maybe they can
get Robin Williams to give them Teddy Roosevelt's take on things. And I'm sure Darth Vader could provide them with some valuable
insights on how to crush the Tea Party rebellion, too.
If Harry Reid ever collapses I hope they count on Alan Alda to doctor him up (since Dr. Captain Hawkeye Pierce will be on The Hill
giving them the Army doctor's viewpoint on health care).
We just got served notice. We just got the engraved, personalized on US Congress letterhead decree that Congress is screwing around
with us and there ain't jack we can do about it.
It kinda makes sense. Pelosi's not a real idiot, she just plays one in Congress.
You remember when I said patience was the worst of the virtues. I was going to formulate some saying that youngsters a generation from
now could find when googling "Frank Leany Quotes." I was thinking "Everything that has been accomplished in this world was done by men
But I got to thinking, that's not true. So here's the quote: There are two kinds of men that accomplish things in this world: Men with a
great deal of patience and those with no patience at all.
If you have a lot of patience you can listen to the radio or read the columns written by very smart people. If you have no patience at
all just read my blog. You get the same truths, you just get them sooner.
Like this morning, when you heard Laura Ingraham say that Obama is the OJ Simpson of presidents.
Obama's ratings are in the tank. But among blacks he still has a 91% approval rating. They support him for the same reason they
supported OJ Simpson. Laura Ingraham pointed that out.
That's a great way to look at it, and it's true. And it's what I said over a year ago.
And what's more . . .
But I went further. I pointed out that OJ Simpson wasn't black so much as he was a rich celebrity. What the poor fools who supported
him didn't realize is that he had more in common with The Man they were trying to poke in the eye than he did with the average black guy.
Same thing with Obama. "Oh, isn't it great? A black has become President in a country that used to have slavery?"
Idiots. Fools. This spoiled rich kid never had any ancestors that were American slaves. He didn't grow up anywhere near where black
Americans live. He had none of the experiences an American black man has.
The worthless prick they were duped into electing as the first black man to hold the Office has absolutely no understanding of their
Congress has a club that excludes blacks
You've heard of the Congressional White Caucus, the group of white congressmen that combats the agenda of the blacks who are
trying to . . .
Wait, hold on . . . I may be confused.
Yeah, my mistake. There is no Congressional White Caucus. That would be racist. And crazy. Any congressman who tried to form
such a group would be burned at the stake and then voted out of office.
But I can't help but think I heard on the news that Obama spoke to some group . . . what was the name? It was a group of
congressman who called themselves . . . no, it was. It was the Congressional Black Caucus. It was a group closed not only to
whites, but also to blacks who stray from Obama's plantation. These are the people Barack Obama calls "The conscience of the
This just in: Obama is just plain evil.
These morons (members of the Congressional Black Caucus) will do whatever Obama tells them to do. They will pee on a hot spark
plug if Obama tells them to, no deception necessary. He says "Here, pee on this. It's going to hurt. A lot."
Sure, okay. Whatever you say.
This reminds me of a line from Heartbreak Ridge: "You don't
have to grease him so hard."
So does Obama constantly lie out of sheer force of habit? I know, I know, the group in the room isn't the audience.
He's lying to the American people who are watching it on the news at night.
I know, it's a tough concept to understand for someone who only has an Ivy League degree, but when you say something that's not
true, and you're trying to make someone believe that it is true, that's a lie. That's bad. That's unacceptable behavior in
Of course, the other side has a plan too. It’s a plan to turn back the clock on all the progress we’ve made. To paraphrase
my friend Deval Patrick, the last election was a changing of the guard; now we need to guard the change. Because everything
we’re for, our opponents have spent two years fighting against. They’ve said no to unemployment insurance. No to middle class
tax cuts. No to small business loans. No we can’t. That’s their motto.
In fact, the only agenda they’ve got is to go back to the same old policies that got us into this mess in the first place.
I'll give you an example. They want to borrow $700 billion -- keep in mind, we don't have $700 billion -- they want to borrow
$700 billion -- from the Chinese or the Saudis or whoever is lending -- and use it on tax cuts, more tax cuts for millionaires
and billionaires. Average tax cut, $100,000 for people making a million dollars or more.
Just plain lies. Not even clever lies. Psychopathic lies. The kind of lies you hear from nutcases who are locked up because
they have lost all sense of reality. You have to
hear this to appreciate the flavor of the lies.
The man is evil. I'm sorry. He is the spawn of Satan.
