Know ye, timothy, that we of slashdot
have found ye to be biased toward the
liberal slant in the most heinous
of ways, including thy acceptance of
homosexuality [gnaa.org] in ways that cannot
be tolerated by the slashbot masses. As a
Result, we find ye guilty of faggotrous acts of
the most heinous variety, and seek to have
ye sexually reeducated at the GNAA house for
anal rejects for a period of no less than one
year. Know, timothy, that we cannot tolerate your
flagrant homosexuality any longer, and that you
and your cock smocking liberal henchmen
will rot in hell for all eternity.
So it is written, so it shall be done.

Indeed, how can they label Bush as a known weasel, thus indicating his "war on terrorism" is at least in great part a sham, and still bash the french?

I'm assuming that it's a statement apart from current war-related issues, since the french were often bashed before anyhow.

This is exactly the reason why direct democracy (hehem, California) never works. Voters want lower taxes, more spending, and less debt, and will vote for those things no matter how contradictory they appear to be. In this case, we voters have equal contempt for GWB and the French and we refuse acknowledge any discrpancy in the fact that they both suck balls. So shove it, we say.

A story of forbidden love in France (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7266648)

I met a wonderful french woman this past summer. After several glasses of wine, she was ready for some fun. So we returned to her flat with the remaining wine and she got out a nice selection of cheese and fruit. We went to the bedroom which was sparsely decorated with just one table next to the bed.

She placed an item in the drawer next the bed and said she would return after she changed. I relaxed with a glass of wine and a slice of cheese.

When she returned, I observed a beautiful apple ass bent over as she removed her panties. As she turned around, perky full breasts bounced gently as she walked to my side of the bed.

She told me to roll over onto my stomach, she wanted to eat my ass. I was instantly hard, I had never experienced this before. I was shocked at what happened next. She reached over to the small drawer next the bed and pulled out a plastic stick about 10 inches long and in a single motion, shoved it straight up my ass. The shock caused me to move my bowels instantly. Shit now covered her white silk sheets. She pushed me off the bed and laid down in my feces and began to grind wildly. She started to moan and began saying, "fuck me in the shit!". I was disgusted, but happy to oblige. It was the hottest sex I ever had. I came in her mouth and reached down behind me and smeared shit all over her chin. She orgasamed uncontrolably.

French women are superior to American in many ways.

"how can they label Bush as a known weasel, thus indicating his "war on terrorism" is at least in great part a sham, and still bash the french?"

Simple:

The war is a good idea, but for human rights -- not any threat Saddam may or may not have been to us. And anything Bush made up or got wrong doesn't change that.

The French, taking an annoyingly self-gratifying position, opposed the whole war just because they opposed Bush. Around these parts, that's called asshat.

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7266604)

France was right. There was nothing in it for them. I mean aside from *ahem* managing the 40 billion dollars that was stolen from the Iraqi people, and their vastly below market value deals for Iraqi oil that they made with Hussein, known butcher. I mean, God forbid any kind of integrity get between them and the money in their pocket.

Asshat, France and Germany could have stopped the war. Know how? Call the US's bluff. Give in to a hard line for invasive UN inspections backed up by military ultimatum. But they didn't want that. They were worried it would interupt their cash flow, and they'd become accustomed to the sweet sweet taste of Iraqi blood, sweat and tears. After all, the US could never be so foolhardy that it would just use its power as Uncle Sam saw fit, before the flacid and impotent europeons. WHOOOPS. Looks like they're about as wise as Hussein when it comes to predicting US reactions. Maybe they should stay out of the meta-game until they understand how the game itself is played.

In short the abberant, mercinary, apathetic hubris of the eurotrash who for some reason think it's their place to rule europe by Providence that made the war even possible by any measure. So when you're passing out blame, remember who the people who set the table are.

I hate those "conspicous fucking" types. They are so obnoxious. There's not much you can really do about it. You could ask her "who's better him or me" type thing and try to make her feel slutty.

but OH NO fast food has NOTHING to do with it, right ?
Nobody's saying that fast food has nothing to do with it.

If I get a Bacon Double Whopper with king-sized fries for lunch every day, I KNOW I'm going to get fat. It's not Burger King's fault, for god's sake. If I go to the bar and order 5 shots of tequila, I KNOW I'm going to get drunk. When I miss work the following day from being hung over, should the bar be held liable?

Fast food isn't healthy. I knew this when I was, like, 10 years old. How is it that some guy in his 30's just wakes up one day after a lifetime of Big Macs and decides "gee, it must be that evil McDonalds conspiracy to make me gain weight..." Fast food restaurants are in business to do one thing, and that's sell food. If you come inside with money, they're going to give you some food in return. How is this wrong?

I guess I must have missed the fraudulent ad campaigns that White Castle put out about "eat our burgers 3 times a day and you'll look like Kate Moss." [Subway and Jared are getting borderline here, but it's supposedly a true story, and I imagine they'd have been whacked by the FTC if it weren't. I also imagine that Jared did a shitload of exercising that they neglect to mention in their commercials. Whatever; the guy didn't sue Subway.]

I don't doubt that fast food is the proximate cause of obesity. Yes - eating Whoppers will make you fat. But nobody says you have to.

Whatever happened to personal responsibility? If you're overweight, go to the damn grocery store, buy some rice and some vegetables. Some fish and lean chicken. Bake the fish. Bake the chicken. Steam the vegetables and boil the rice. When you're starting to get full, stop eating. How hard is that?

It's not as convenient as fast food, true. But if that's your excuse, you're killing yourself for convenience. Living in McDonalds and blaming them for your problems is like blaming the gun in a game of Russian Roulette.

That is of course silly. Sample size doesn't have much to do with scientific poll accuracy. In an open internet poll, you can easily get hordes of "voters" who want to express their opinion, and their opinion is usually fairly homogenious compared to the population as a whole. Zogby and other pollsters CHOOSE the people to ask.

You need to go back to statistics class. Sure, you could poll 5,000,000 Democrats and get a near zero approval rating, but what would that prove? That's why internet polls are called unscientific.

I find it interesting that Dubya won his category. I had no idea public opinion of him was so low.

Ummmm.....depends on which "public" you're talking about. I think it's probably reasonable to say that readers of Dilbert are a self-selecting sample of the general population.

Congratulations to all the deserving winners.

My question is this: How on earth did that summary get past moderation? If Dilbert readers want to vote Dubya a weasel, that's fine; no way should a summary include this comment.

I think PO is actually split approximately evenly (+/-).

Hello, my name is George W. Bush. I've sold the soul of the american government to Microsoft in return for their software to run on all of my computers here in the White House and all of those military bases (you know those remote ones where Solitaire really matters). I have always and will always support the recording industry and I hope that the RIAA wins all of its lawsuits. If you haven't noticed, I've been putting on those extra pounds lately. Thosefast-food places between the White House and my golf course never told me that eating would make me fat. You would have to be blind not to know that I'm a politician (how good/bad I am is debatable), but I am a politican nevertheless. Oh and my good pal Jaques is coming over soon so we can figure out which countries we're going to argue about in that next U.N. meetings so I had better leave now. Anyway, thanks to all of you people out there who voted for me, I probably didn't really win, but hey, my name's up there so I might as well accept the honor. - G.W.B. P.S. What was I running for again?

Re:What about Rush? (1)

greening (146061) | more than 10 years ago | (#7266705)

While weed doesn't help any [real] ailment (except maybe worsen one), Rush was addicted to pain killers. A highly addicting pain killer. What Clinton did was for no other cause than for enjoyment. While he should have cleaned himself up before he was caught, he didn't. Plus, Rush is a much more upstanding man than either Clintons.

I can't say I am surprised.... (1, Flamebait)

Rahga (13479) | more than 10 years ago | (#7266624)

I can't say I'm surprised to see that "George W. Bush" is listed as the weasliest individual, considering that the vast majority of hollywood and half of the politicians in the country are gunning for him, armed with mountains of faux substance... It's almost as bad as the France thing, except there's plenty of really good reasons to pity the French, and not supporting the Iraq war shouldn't even be on the list. (Say what you want about Bush killing jobs, it doesn't even compare with the French enforcing a 35-hour max workweek [azcentral.com] .)

The solution to this problem involves the general public and natural selection, so I won't go into it here.

John Foreyt, director of Behavioral Medicine Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, estimates that almost every American will be overweight or obese by 2040.

A few, possibly 5% to 15%, might be able to maintain a healthy weight, he says.

"But most of us are in trouble," Foreyt says. "We are affected so strongly by the environment -- fast food, big portion sizes and the lack of a need to be active -- that we are doomed."

Samuel Klein of the North American Association for the Study of Obesity says, "More lives are being lost to obesity than any war or terrorist attack."

Macrobat (318224) | more than 10 years ago | (#7266722)

I am so sick of France getting bad press here in jingo-land.

France is the country that stood up to uber-weasel George W and refused to support a war of choice based on hearsay. They stood on principle and demanded evidence of WMDs (along with an apparent majority of the Security Council, although we'll never know for sure because GWB decided to attack without international sanction). Since when did seeking truth and not backing down to an economic and military superpower qualify as weasely?
