Tuesday, With Morays

With any luck, John Seery, a Pomona College professor and Huffington Post contributor, will die a horrible, painful death-by-eel-bite in the next year... preferably on Tuesday, March 13.



HuffPuffer Seery seems absolutely giddy at the prospect of calculating the deaths of American soldiers over the next year, which--let's face it--is a game his base doesn't mind playing...


Greg Gutfeld is, well, less than amused with Seery's sick game:

The more that die, he understands, the smarter he looks. As a college professor, he's hoping for an invite to a cocktail party where he doesn't have to serve the drinks.

It only leads me to ask: When, and how, will John Seery be killed?

I'm just curious, of course, in the same manner Mr. Seery is. He's asking you to submit a number - the larger the better - which is perfectly appropriate for the Huffington Post - where hoping for the worst is the only hope allowed.

So certainly, me asking the same question about John should be treated with the same respect - don't you think? I mean, of course - the Huffpo won't dare remove me, or hide my post, when I ask for such a somber prediction. After all, Seery is practically lubricating over expected casualties - his summer will be awash in misery if American blood doesn't flow. What if I feel the same way, about him?

While I might not "lubricate" over Seery's impending death this year, I do have to ask:

What dates and methods are you guys picking?

As Seery himself says:

I'm not sure, however, what you'll win, or even if you could call it a victory. But Americans like to play to win, we've been told.

And though we do love to play, and get things when we win, I'd suggest against a pool... once it gets to a certain point, it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

After contributing to Jamil Hussein's imminent date with a drill, I don't know if I can have that on my conscious as well.

What a dirtbag.

If you're squeamish, or if it seems too macabre or snide, then maybe you can somehow claim exemption from your duties and responsibilities as a vigilant citizen of this country.

My response:

Speak for yourself, and don't preach about "duties as a citizen". Your post is macabre and snide because you've never had the responsibility of another person's (or people's) safety or life in your hands, and never had to make a decision that could potentially put people at risk of death or serious bodily harm. Do us a favor -- If you're going to dehumanize the troops into numbers and statistics at the beginning of your post, don't refer to them them "our kids" at the end.

Professor Sneery is one of those rare "gifts" that occasionally waft up from the peculiar aroma of the fever swamp...and actually allow the crude veneer of Timeshare Americans to peel away, giving us an even clearer look at what really lies beneath.

Just when you think they can't sink any lower, one of the far left vermin, pops his head up out of the muck and says or does something that paints a thousand word picture Dante's eighth ring...inside the mind of a slitheral.

A slitheral ghoulishly counts the deaths of American men and women who are doing the rough and courageous work of providing a wall of safety for those who appreciate freedom from tyranny and oppression. And smirks behind the veneer of faux empathy for the fulfillment of their bravery, each time one falls.

A slitheral won't count the numbers of children whose fathers won't be gassed this coming year, just because they are Kurds.

A slitheral won't count the number of wives who won't be widowed and told the gruesome tale of their late husbands being placed in woodchippers.

A slitheral won't count the number of children who will cease to be taught that Jewish people have horns and drink their blood...and will have hope for a future that allows the girls to utilize their skills, intelligence and talents for something other than the sadistic sexual torture rooms of a tyrant's sons.

A slitheral will instead notch his murky and macabre bedpost each time a brave soldier dies, because his whole pathetic existence is so wrapped up in debasing his country, that any loss of life suffered on our side is celebrated as a silent and Sneery victory for the cesspool in which he resides.

Here's to hoping that when the Iraqi people emerge from this, their halting and rugged infancy of freedom, that they don't one day evolve a species inside their homeland, that takes glee in the sacrifices of those who died providing and maintaining it. Here's to hoping that their newborn freedom doesn't one day spawn more slitherals.

And here's to every courageous man and woman who fulfills their duty, knowing full well that some have fallen yesterday, and that they may fall today or tomorrow, but they bravely press on. May G=d keep you safe and warm in His embrace, and any day he doesn't...I will. I love you all. Thank you.

true justice would be for him to wither and die in obscurity, because he obviously is begging for attention, like so many other of these fools.

I say he will die as a direct result of "boredom" because of listening to himself and the other professors but mostly from listening to Huffington. The death of course will be extremely painful and long however it will happen and Saddam awaits his arrival, he he.

Within 6-weeks he will suffer a few scratches from perhaps a cat. He will slowly develop substantial flu like symptoms followed by more pain than usual at the scratch sites. After a few weeks the cause of the disease will be described as "necrotising fasciitis" from a group A Streptococcus bacteria. Treatment will progress but will be unable to stop the disease. It will then be discovered that in addition to group A he also is infected with an antibiotic resistant group B Streptococcus.

His living areas will be have been contaminated with these bacteria in high numbers and the genetic make-up will be identical to bacteria at the Center for Disease Control.

The guy is probably on protease cocktails now, biding his time and wondering why he can't laid anymore, by his students or the homeless guy he bought the shirt for.

Seery be the victim of a hit-and-run by an illegal alien while protesting the war with Cindy Sheehan at the Democratic Convention in Denver this fall. The casket will have to be closed as he will have "La Raza" from the license plate liner stamped into his forehead. Cindy will lose both legs and be known as "Shorty Sheehan" for the rest of her days.

Don't you dare say that I don't support our protestors, though.
