Gun-totin', Chronic-smokin' Hearse Initiator

The Thing is a Jew! But he doesn't wear a yarmulke! But he's still a good American!

In today's Bleat, James "You Will Believe a Man Can Crank" Lileks assaults Lizz Winstead. He claims she would prefer Saddam Hussein was still in power, that she wants to fuck Tariq Aziz, and that she supports the subjugation of woman. Why? Because she liked the things George Galloway had to say, and Jimmy-Jim knows that Galloway is a bad man. How does he know? Because the ever-objective Christopher Hitchens says so, of course! Hitch says all the allegations about his slush-funding are true, and therefore they must be true, even though no charges have been filed and Congress, who had a perfect opportunity to do so since Galloway waived his right to immunity and gave his statements under oath, declined to charge him with perjury. Hitch claims that he won his seat by toadying to Islamic fundamentalists (who are, of course, the primary voting bloc in the United Kingdom), that he had the temerity to run against an African Jew, and that he is a "depraved sub-Leninist" and a "votary of the one-party state". WELL THEN SCREW YOU LIZZ WINSTEAD!

But the funniest thing in today's Bleat is how James chooses to describe the Thing to his daughter:

“That’s Ben Grimm. He’s the Thing. Very strong. Smokes cigars, has a girlfriend named Alicia. Jewish, but I’m not sure he’s observant. Heck of an American, in any case.”

…fucking WHAT?!?
