And Now, It's Time For...

Name That Shithead!!

Yesss, even the most brief, cursory perusal of the news gives us so many choices for this one, but there are two today who practically jump right up and kick us in the ass. Sooo, here's...

#1: US Secretary of Education, Big Rod Paige,
who, according to the AP, "called the nation's largest teachers union a 'terrorist organization' Monday, taking on the 2.7-million-member National Education Association early in the presidential election year."
"Paige's comments, made to the nation's governors at a private White House meeting, were denounced by union president Reg Weaver as well as prominent Democrats."

The asshole soon backed-down on the comments, but to many, he's shown his true colors, his contempt for education, and just how far his head is up Resident Bush's ass.

"The education secretary's words were 'pathetic and they are not a laughing matter,' said Weaver, whose union has said it plans to sue the Bush administration over lack of funding for demands included in the 'No Child Left Behind' schools law."

How dare he criticize our nation's teachers? How freakin' dare he??

#2: Actor Mel Gibson's father, Hutton Gibson,
who, according to a 2/20 AP story, "Days before the release of Mel Gibson's film about the death of Jesus, which some critics say could fuel anti-Semitism, ...told an interviewer that the Holocaust was mostly 'fiction.'"

This fuckin' historical genius was interviewed on a radio show called Speak Your Piece!.
"According to a transcript released by the network, Hutton Gibson said, 'It's all - maybe not all fiction - but most of it is,' when asked about his views on the Holocaust."

"He added: 'They claimed that there were 6.2 million (Jews) in Poland before the war and after the war there were 200,000, therefore he (Hitler) must have killed 6 million of them. They simply got up and left. They were all over the Bronx and Brooklyn and Sydney and Los Angeles.'"

"The interview comes at a sensitive time for Mel Gibson, whose epic The Passion of the Christ is due to open Wednesday."

"Asked in media interviews whether he shares his father's views, Mel Gibson has said that he loves his father and will not speak against him."

Maybe I should make sonny-boy Mel Shithead #3.
I dunno if Mel Gibson is an anti-semite, but he is clearly a sad, greedy jerk. His father is obviously a hate-filled piece of ignorant human garbage. The National Council of Churches immediately condemned Papa Gibson's dopey comments.

Mel-baby saw big dollar signs with this upcoming flick, which might fan flames of hatred that have been smoldering of late. He doesn't seem to much care about that, because he apparently just wants to make money, perfectly-timed to a religious holiday.

My guess is the flick will hit big and then fizzle very quickly.
Few people will be willing to sit through two hours of Aramaic with subtitles. Joe Sixpack might enjoy all the violence in the movie, but he probably also wants to hear dialogue in English and see some big tits, too, which I'm guessin' this flick lacks. This is not a Saturday nite date and popcorn flick. It's a transparent attempt to use religion - something deeply personal and serious and transcendental - to make a coddled Hollywood jerk some big money.

Daddy Gibson has already shit all over himself.
Mel won't smell too good either when it's all over, even if he does make some money off this.

They'll prove to the world that ignorance ain't bliss. It's just sad.
