Your Daley Douchebag of the Day

Markos Moulitsas, you are a vile, pathetic excuse for a man, and, Marky you are even worse than the Westboro Bastards Church vermin.

Although the news of Andrew Breitbart’s death is still fairly fresh, the merry band of faceless marauders at the Daily Kos have decided it is time to use his death as an opportunity to make political hay.

A post dated March 1 by “dragon82a,” titled “Let’s Help Andrew Breitbart go out In Style..Get Westboro Baptist Church to Protest Him” encourages readers to post on the Westboro Baptist Church’s Facebook page calling for the group to protest Andrew Breitbart’s funeral:

Markos, do you even care what such a stunt would do to Breitbart’s wife? His kids? Well,do you? Odd Markos that by pulling this stunt, you have vindicated EVERYTHING Breitbart said about Leftists like you. You have proven every single point he ever made. Not only are you are miserable coward, but you are as stupid as they come as well.

In tragedies, lessons lie

I was not a Whitney Houston fan, but, I recognized the gifts she had been given. She was a pretty woman, with a beautiful smile, and a voice that was, well, I don’t know if words can do it justice. Here is Whitney singing what, to me was easily her best song. The Greatest Love of All As you watch and listen, think about how she, sadly wasted a good deal of the blessings she was granted. Then, think about your blessings, your talents, then promise yourself that your blessings will not be wasted!

 

TMZ: Whitney Houston died from overdose, did not drown

Of course, this is not official yet, but TMZ seems to always have the scoop in these stories. Something of this nature was my first thought when I heard the news Saturday night. What a sad, sad waste.

Whitney Houston‘s family was told by L.A. County Coroner officials … the singer did not die from drowning, but rather from what appears to be a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol … this according to family sources.

We’re told Coroner’s officials informed the family there was not enough water in Whitney’s lungs to lead to the conclusion that she drowned.

My heart breaks for her family.

Whitney Houston Dead at 48

Shocking news, and very sad, RIP

Whitney Houston, who ruled as pop music’s queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, has died. She was 48.Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown.

News of Houston’s death came on the eve of music’s biggest night — the Grammy Awards. It’s a showcase where she once reigned, and her death was sure to case a heavy pall on Sunday’s ceremony. Houston’s longtime mentor Clive Davis was to hold his annual concert and dinner Saturday; it was unclear if it was going to go forward.

At her peak, Houston the golden girl of the music industry. From the middle 1980s to the late 1990s, she was one of the world’s best-selling artists. She wowed audiences with effortless, powerful, and peerless vocals that were rooted in the black church but made palatable to the masses with a pop sheen.
