It's not even good satire -- it's just the usual George W. Bush hate-fest.

I think a funnier satire would be to make up a special kind of analgesic for lefties:

LibroLox! It'll settle all that stomach bile that gets kicked up during the anti-Bush rants and screeds. Save your stomach lining! Take some LibroLox! Flavors include hippy-dippy-mint, lefty-lemon, and multiculti-orange!

LibroLox is biodegradable, recyclable, and is made by a carefully selected group of unionized, ethnically-blended, transgender workers in our plant in Eugene Oregon.

Oh, come on, humorless Bushies, can't you take a joke? It's hardly a "hate-fest" when the Bush quotes are the most comical and damning text on the site. I like the merch the best -- Bush/Orwell '04 indeed.

Congratulations, mrmanley, you are exactly as funny as the linked site.

Exactly.

dhoyt's take was pretty funny, though...

I live in Eugene too! (Really... and I never ever EVER see hippies around here.)

woil:

You're not looking very hard. Ken Kesey, the prototypical hippie, lived in Eugene (and was buried there AFAIK). It's also the place where the WTO protests were organized (check here for a relevant quote by Chris Peck, the editor of the Spokesman-Review). Even Turn Left calls it "pleasantly dippy".

The last time I was there (about six years back), there was this weird earth-mother proto-wiccan convention going on; my hotel was mobbed with these nice-but-strange folks. I realize that hippies and Wiccans aren't exactly the same thing, but it's surely in the same ballpark.

then there's this one!
The founders of Metafilter and Kuro5hin plan to launch an independent news site this fall to track the 2004 presidential campaign. Matt Haughey and Rusty Foster, the programmers behind those two collaborative media sites, will create a "smart mob-style site" to provide a place for independent reporting about next year's election.

The site, still in development, will consist of three elements, Haughey says: a section devoted to Weblog-style entries about daily campaign events; a second area for first-person campaign coverage, including digital photos, phonecam shots, audio and video clips and interview transcripts; and finally news stories building on the first two sections. Readers will be allowed to edit and rewrite stories.

Much the same way that racists, Nazis, religious fundies, militias, corporate whores, imperialists, and myriad other self-righteous bastards are in the same ballpark with the Republican party? Hmmmm??
