One for you Marines

Semper Fee, guys:

Her parents were affirmative-action-hire professors and she has a PhD her ownself, so of course this product of the Self-Esteem Generation is as dumb as a box of rocks, without the common sense God gave the birds of the air and the beasts of the field.

So in a segment where she’s concern-trolling the military, she gets all choked up about the power of military mottoes. Like “Semper Fee.”

This is the same girl that showed her complete lack of class and breeding, not to mention her unseemly racism, in an attack on Mitt Romney’s grandchild (a) because the kid was black and (b) because she disagrees with Romney’s politics. What can you really say about a person like this, who was not raised with a shred of humanity or decency?

She comes from the academic class, and no doubt thinks that Marines (and all the rest of us “green-collar” workers) are dumb. Well, how does it feel to be dumber than every. Single. Marine. Boot. Ever. Huh? And every one of their friends and family members?

    Damn, I guess this means if I want to keep mocking Marines for not knowing how to properly pronounce their Latin motto people will associate me with an MSNBC airhead.

    I think it was Mark Twain who said, “It’s better to remain silent and let folks think you’re a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt”.

    She is a prime example.

    Be of good cheer friends. Remember, she’s a prime example of what we’ll be up against . All vacuous talk and lofty ideals and unicorn dreams.

    No real work, or for that matter, real world experience.

    I think we got this thing.

    Dr Bill, I believe Mr Twain had it from somewhere else:

    Proverbs 17:28:
    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

    That goes for bathhouse loiterers reading off Teleprompters as well. I read somewhere the 2014 state of the onion address was plagiarised from 2007…so I guess it must be Dubya’s fault again.

      As Bill K, M.D. (not Bill T), I approve this message…

      And the latest news flash from reliable sources (People’s Cube) is,
      “Bovine community outraged by flatulence coming from Washington DC.”

    Corpse man! Corpse man!
    She’s bleeding from the ears, and shooting diarrhea out of her mouth…must’ve blown a brain gasket!
    Strap a CAT tourniquet around her neck and cinch that thing down ASAP!

    Apparently part of the hiring requirements for MSNBC on-air talent is that you scored 100 or less on your SATs.

      Well, the Latin should be “SEM-per Fi-DAY-lis”, with both i’s short, the “fi” rhyming more with “Heh” than “High” or “Hee”. (Some latin dictionaries stress the first syllable of FI-day-lis). And that first example is actually not far from the way Marines pronounce it. But when they shorten it, it’s always “Semper Figh,” as anyone who’s spent an hour in earshot of any actual Marines, or, hell, sat through any decent OR lousy Marine movie, knows.

      Tentative conclsion: Melissa Hateful-Person has not spent an hour within bellowing range of an actual Leatherneck, or experienced such fine entertainments as Sands of Iwo Jima or Heartbreak Ridge which would straighten her out on this score. Not that she needs to. It’s a free country, and we can always use “credentialed but uneducated” folks like her for comic relief. Maybe they could rename her channel, M S Semper Fee!
