Politics As We Like It: You have the "charisma of a damp rag" and the appearance of a "low-grade bank clerk."

"You Lie" should have only been the beginning. MEP and UKIP leader Nigel Farage on Wednesday took on EU President Herman van Rompuy again. How long, oh Lord, how long shall we wait for out Farage?

Where can I get a politician like this? Hoorah!

That was the double barreled, atomic powered, hyper zap-o-matic, scorched earth flamethrower insult engine cranked up to ten, with the safety removed.

Now. Do we have a politician here at home who has the balls to pick up that bad boy and let it fly at Teh Preznit?
I. Only. Wish.

Now if there were only British politicians who were willing to face British Muslims with that same force.

Now THAT was rousing. God bless the UK and thanks to same that they are not attached to the Continent (except by that infernal tube).

The Belgians are the biggest twits ever. The Brussellites at any rate. I remember a dinner years ago with various academics and the food was catered. So this Belgian schmuck says "Mmm ... almost European standards" *in all seriousness* and oblivious to his condescending tone. My American colleague chimed in without missing a beat: "Things that bad over there, eh?"

This is a thing of beauty. No doubt about it. And I thought Daniel Hannan was blunt. He's like a headmaster administering the cane to a naughty schoolboy.

Farage is like Superman ripping a 98-pound weakling limb from limb. The gloves are off.

This would be uncivil and cruel--if it weren't much-needed and absolutely true: millions of Europeans are being enslaved rapidly by a totalitarian behemoth that's sucking its freedom away. Rompuy is a scheming nonentity and dirty little totalitarian shit. If I were Farage, I'd watch my back.

This, incidentally, is the government Obama so idiotically wants us to have. Fuck him, too.

Incidentally, this moment ought to be preserved in amber, it's just that good.

Incidentally, I have an an extra 'incidentally' hanging around, so I'm throwing it in. Don't tell me I don't love you.

Where are our Farages, Daniel Hannans and Lord Moctons? Instead, we get mealy-mouthed blatherheads like the amnesty twins John McCain and Linsdey Graham.

I sent this clip to my friend in England. She said he was being rude. I said "You're losing your country. There's no point in being polite!" And I haven't heard from her since.

Love it!!!

If even one of our linguine-spined Senators ever made a speech like this before the floor of our own Senate, in the presence of Harry Reid... Reid'd be out there as a buzzard treat the next day.

(Oh, brother! I remembered those Tibetan buzzards again!)

Honesty...How refreshingly revolutionary.

Kate Rafferty-- I sent this to my friend who is recently immigrated from England and she got a kick out of it, said "dressed like a bank clerk" was especially brutal. Class status in UK is something Americans really cannot fathom. It probably has the power to bend one's sense of humor ...
