Noel Sheppard’s Favorite Adjective

December 18, 2007

As I mentioned a little while back, I was approved for an account on the righty media watchdog site NewsBusters.  I kinda like the site, so I hope that this post doesn’t put my membership in jeopardy.  After all, this is just an observation, but it didn’t take long for me to notice that Noel (one of the site’s prominent front-page contributors) appears to like to use the word “delicious” (or “deliciously”) when he posts: 

Clinton Front Group Cherry-picks a Fight with NewsBusters

…More deliciously…

Matthews Panel Hates Hillary, Hearts Huckabee

…Deliciously, when Sullivan said…

Plummeting Ratings Cause NBC to Give Refunds to Advertisers

…As deliciously reported

NBC Lawyer Who Blocked Pro-Troops Ad Gives Generously to Dems

…possibly more delicious side of this story…

Bill O’Reilly Calls Helen Thomas a ‘Pinhead’

…deliciously smacked down…

 David Gregory Slams Both Clintons for Bill’s Iraq War Flip-flop

…How delicious…

Antiwar Film ‘Lions for Lambs’ Could Lose $25 Million

…As deliciously reported

 Helen Thomas Smacked Down by Press Secretary Perino

…watch the entire delicious exchange…

And that’s just so far in December

The best variation I’ve seen?  Why, it has to be “exquisitely delicious“!

Of course, I couldn’t help but ponder the question:  What the heck is so yummy over there? 

I’ll have to investigate further, but the current hypothesis I’m working with points to….

  1. I see you came behind this gem Chen on LFG Watch. You still think Charles is wrong about the LLL and their undying support of the Terrorists Muslims? No comment? at that sick site from you?

    This must from one of Charles’ racist commenter from a newspaper in California

    “Teddy bear religion
    I certainly hope that Gillian Gibbons, the British teacher who offended the Sudanese Muslims with the blasphemous teddy bear named Muhammad, does not offer any more apologies to the Sudanese or anyone else in the radical Muslim world.

    What kind of world do we live in where almost anything is considered offensive by anyone who is thin-skinned enough to take offense over something as innocuous as a teddy bear.

    The Muslim world has its own version of Mickey Mouse called Farfur, who teaches the importance of daily prayer. Where is the outrage from the Western culture?

    I realize that the reactions to Muhammad the teddy bear were sparked by a few fanatic clerics who took advantage of the ignorant masses, and that Islam like many other religions has its honorable aspects as well as its radical side. But the world is becoming fatigued by the incessant demands to constrain what a few are calling offensive and blasphemous – and the insistence of forcing their beliefs on the rest of us.

    If we were to convey Christianity to the extreme that we see by radical Islam as reported in the news, then anyone who celebrates Christmas using the iconic Santa Claus would be guilty of offending Christians. And Christmas by its very nature should be offensive to anyone else who does not believe in Christ or the celebration of Christmas.

    At least in this country people are free to believe in whatever they choose no matter how inane or extreme it may seem. We simply don’t put people in prison, flog them or execute them for insulting one’s religion.”

    I would suggest an out an out email protest campaign and a process to sue the paper and arrest the writer for the vicious and libelous attack on Muslims.


  2. Bill in Tex-

    I see you came behind this gem Chen on LFG Watch. You still think Charles is wrong about the LLL and their undying support of the Terrorists Muslims? No comment? at that sick site from you?

    You do realize that all the comments at LGF Watch are moderated? That means that there is significant delay before they appear on the site. In this case, I was completely unaware of petra’s comment when I posted. In fact, there was only 1 comment on the thread at that point. Unfortunately, this is what happens when bloggers choose to appove every single comment before they appear. They just show up in bunches.

    Otherwise, I’m not sure you’re making sense.


  3. Anytime you are ready to back up your slanderous statement, just let me know. I guess Charles did teach you something on LGF. 🙂


  4. I got nothing to back up (if you’re referring to the in2thefray thread). I was just making you aware of another blog post :

    Elric66 is a White Supremacist Douchebag

    You can take it up with that blogger if you want to.

    Re: Charles

    He got sick of me smacking him and the rest of his lizard sycophants around, so he banned me. It’s as simple as that.

    Go ahead and follow the link if you’re curious.


  5. My apologies Chen. It looked as you were calling me that. Congrats on getting banned, its a badge of honor. 🙂


  6. Congrats on getting banned, its a badge of honor.

    Yea, I went out with style.


  7. Bill, you are an idiot. I read the posting from Petra at the source. The Author is a racist SOB in my book and should be prosecuted and then hung by an angry Muslim crowd. The US is no longer just a “Christian” nation and Christians need to realize this fact. Anyone who blames 911/terrorism on Muslims is an idiot. Bush is the terror and Bush was behind 9-11, the USS Cole, 7-7, and 3-11. America is a stupid fucking country and I hope Islam takes control to save America from the right-wing wacko Christian morons who fucked it up in the first place

    Who do you think saved the world world from the “original” terrorist of the 20th century Adolph Hitler? Who foots the bill for the U.N.? Who rescues nation when there are natural disasters? Certainly not your Muslim nations my friend. America rescued herself after 9/11 and after hurricane Katrina. Not one Muslim nation offered up help nor apology after those two regrettable events. In fact, they were dancing in the streets in Muslim countries as well as my native Mexico. Everyone “hates” America because it’s the trend to do so, that is until there is an earthquake , an ecological disaster, or political mayhem, then it is “Americans, send us your money”.

    Quite a few Muslim countries in there, including Iran.


  10. Chen what counties offered aid, comfort and offered intelligence to capture the “perpetrators” of 9/11? And of those, what Muslims countries?

    I somewhat agree with Majeel, that Bush may just be the “one responsible” for the orchestration of attacks on US and European soil to continue his father’s dream of the “New World Order” by terrorizing the world and forcing us to accept a totalitarian government as a “protection” -think Orwell’s “1984”. I am seriously considering converting to Islam as I would rather play it “safe” and be on the side that “does” the least amount of damage to human kind. Sometimes no choice is better than too many choices, that is what the decadent US offers the world and maybe the world just needs to simplify: pray, serve, pray, serve….


  11. Chen what counties offered aid, comfort and offered intelligence to capture the “perpetrators” of 9/11? And of those, what Muslims countries?

    The “perpetrators” were dead, no?

    For comfort, well, here: Attacks draw mixed response in Mideast
