Comment Amber Rudd. Of all the idiots on this planet (Score 1) 252

Seriously, she's Britain's answer to Sarah Palin. Or rather, an answer to a question nobody asked.

And while Palin is at least a looker, Rudd also has this "used car" air about her. This woman has so far in her total career never said a single sentence that wasn't a tear-soaked platitude, an "outraged demand" that simply echoed what everyone else has already been saying or simply and plainly stupid. I really have no idea what service she could provide other than being the bad example on how NOT to do something.

Seriously. When asked at her funeral to say anything good about her, all you can sensibly say is "she died".

We have way bigger problems than suicide bombers. If you want to go after suicide killers, ban smoking.

What? Smokers are suicide killers. They kill themselves and others who happen to stand nearby. Why is one ok and the other one scares you shitless?

Maybe if we put warning labels on bombs you're less afraid?

Microsoft, of all the companies out there, has a long, long history of vaporware, promising time and again a product they either never really planned to deliver or they delivered so late that you'd have been better off buying the competing model. Which is essentially what they want to keep you from doing: Don't buy Brand X now, because MS has the same product out Really Soon Now (tm).

If they ever delivered, then usually by buying out Brand X as soon as they were on the verge of bankruptcy because people waited for MS to deliver.

Sorry, MS, I don't care anymore what you announce. Put up or shut up.
