THE CARNIVAL OF THE CLUELESS #1

The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it.
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Only someone who made a living out of being irrational can say that with a straight face.”
Me

Cluelessness is more than just a state of mind. After all, most of us at one time or another in our lives have experienced moments of being clueless. How many times have you been in a car and not had the foggiest idea of where you were? Or been at a loss for words when your spouse asks what you were doing out until 4:00 AM? At a strip bar? With the phone number of someone named “Peaches” written in lipstick on your palm?

Now that’s clueless!

Stupidity is an equal opportunity disease. It can strike people of any race, any sex, any nationality, and any political persuasion. Of course, it seems to be funnier when one’s political opponent proves themselves to be clueless. But why limit ourselves here? There’s plenty of ammunition for all sides of the political spectrum. Liberal, conservative, libertarian, anarchist – the possibilities are endless, limited only by good taste and a dutiful sense of noblesse oblige.

Thankfully, the Shadow Media rarely lets good taste stand in the way of thwacking the truly clueless. Hence, the idea for this Carnival. Some of the most interesting and inventive writing can be found when we point our fingers in mirth at the moonbats, loonbats, charlatans, fakes and fakirs of politics and culture.

So sit back and enjoy! And make sure you bookmark this site and return every Tuesday for some rollicking good writing and good times!

Van Helsing of Moonbattery makes his living feasting off the idiocy of others. In this post, find out what happens when our Customs and Border Patrol proves that we have a little work to do when it comes to defense of the homeland.

A likely candidate for Cluebat of the Year would have to go to Irene Kahn of Amnesty International. Here’s Mark of Decision “08 and his take on The Great Gitmo Gulag Gaff of 2005.

Pamela of Atlas Shrugs takes Hillary Clinton to task for her selective memory on China. Why do I get the feeling Hillary is going to be a Carnival regular?

Minh-Duc of State of Flux fisks Kevin Drum’s choice of books he considers among the 10 most harmful written during the 19th and 20th centuries. A response to the Human Events piece, Drum jumps the shark…and then some with his selections.

Josh Cohen of Multiple Mentality has a beef with the Supreme Court’s medical marijuana decision. So do most of us, I imagine.

A.J. of The Strata-Sphere wonders about Congressional spending on a report stating the obvious.

Nickie Goomba is mad at the ACLU for complaining about “cruel and unusual plumbing” at Gitmo. “Military guards have been heard complaining that it takes over 400 plunges of the toilet handle to flush a standard Koran. A Torah can take almost a week to flush.” I agree. We need to work on the technology of waste disposal if we want to get truly efficient with our desecrations.

Diamond, AKA “Zombie” is a photographer. Peruse this page of photograph links and get a true sense of the marvelously clueless moonbattery on display at demonstrations against…well just about everything.

No Carnival would be complete without Howard Dean. The Powerline guys says he’s a gift that keeps on giving,” kind of like a Norelco Electric Razor but without the Fathers Day wrapping paper. Raven at And Rightly So simply calls him an idiot. C’mon girl! Tell us what you really think!

Our lone lefty entry this week is from Jack Cluth at the People’s Republic of Seabrook. His subject is James Sensenbrenner. You remember Representative Senseless? He wanted to criminalize “indecency.” Actually, it may have been worth it just to see Oprah do the perp walk. This time, Sensenbrenner is taken to task for walking out of the hearing on re-upping the Patriot Act. Mannerless? Yes. Warranted? Depends if you like political theater or not. The two act comedy put on prior to Sensenbrenner’s exit could qualify for an Academy Award Short nomination.

Kender of Kender’s Musings trains several well aimed barbs at Socialism (capital “S”). I almost penalized my blog bud for picking too easy a target. But then I remembered…Don’t get on Kender’s bad side. I’m still pulling the stingers out of my hide from the last time I crossed him.

I’ve just got one question for The Maryhunter of TMH Bacon Bits: Who is Squidward and where in God’s name is “Bikini Bottom?”

Cao (pronounced “Key” for those of you not familiar with the Celtic idiom) of Cao’s Blog plays with one of her more clueless trolls. Now Cao, how many times have I told you not to feed the trolls? Feeding them only helps them procreate and make many where before there was only one. In this case though – an Islamist loon - we can make an exception.

Barry Ready, the Palmetto Pundit, takes on the idiocy of Charles Rangel. Rep. Rangels hyperbole regarding the holocaust and the Iraq war is typical of a man who introduced a measure last year to re-institute the draft and then got mad when Republicans brought it up for a vote. Charlie must be a lousy poker player. It was a no brainer calling his bluff when he wasn’t even holding a pair of deuces.

Bill Teach over at Pirates Cove has an exclusive picture of one of John Kerry’s advisors. Now, where have I seen that face before?

My own entry this week knocks Frank Rich for not staying on as the New York Times Drama Critic.

That’s it for this week. I hope a few more of you liberals out there will join us next week. I promise to include your entry regardless of subject matter.

If you’d like to enter next week’s Carnival, send me an email with your post’s URL or, go and visit Ferdinand T. Cat and use his handy Carnival Entry Form.

    Carnival of The Clueless
    Right Wing Nut House has a great idea! I bet Dean wins big in the first round. Get your candidate posts in for your favorite Clueless One(s), there is more than enough material out there.
    It will take me all day to sift through my candidates.
