Over the lunch hour Cornel West was briefly on MSNBC, calling the GOP mean-spirited and the Democratic Party “spineless.” He politely brushed off the host’s wish to discuss TIME magazine’s cover story on a ‘new civil war’ calling what we have now ‘a class war’ between the oligarchs, the government taken over by their henchmen and everyone else.

The Democratic Party is, indeed, spineless. Last week, the Internet gave it a gift-wrapped insult by linking the GOP and Paul Ryan with Soylent Green.

In the hands of merciless people with rapier wits, it would be devastating. In the hands of the Dems, forget it.

Now, all I need is someone to come up with a picture of Paul Ryan or Eric Cantor with the word balloon, “I CAN HAZ SOYLENT?” Maybe with a little green wafer in there somewhere, too.

Alternative word balloon:


Go! A free No-Prize and my undying gratitude if I see one.

MSNBC masquerades as the anti-Fox but it’s often just the pits. Two minutes ago the news host introduced a teaser for the next segment on — bacon-scented men’s cologne.

Wait, it gets worse. The intro music was Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “That Smell,” which was on “Street Survivors,” the album they were touring when the plane crash occurred. “That Smell” was a song about death and drug addiction.


Angel of darkness is upon you
Stuck a needle in your arm
So take another toke, have a blow for your nose
One more drink fool, will drown you
Ooooh that smell
Can’t you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

If you could push a button to have the host and his producer thrown off the top of a three-story building, you’d push that button.
