Was This At The MoveOn Awards?

It's good to know that stupidity and vulgarity aren't limited to just the American left:

Tony Blair has been called "a complete dickhead" by a leading Spanish politician live on television. The comment was made by Jose Bono, one of the three most powerful figures in the Socialist Party. His remarks were not intended to be heard, but were recorded by a television team while he was talking to Joaquin Almunia, a former Socialist leader.

Mr Bono said: "Hey, and our colleague Blair? He's a complete dickhead (un gilipollas integral). He's an imbecile."

Mr. Bono was foolish indeed, at least in that he didn't attempt to reach for Margaret Cho levels of obscenity. C'mon, Jose! If you're going to toss them out there, you owe it to yourself and your movement to at least make it more memorable than "dickhead". Doesn't that sound so childish -- something that an eight-year-old might say? We're more used to leftists like Cho and Chuck D sounding like 13-year-old rebel wannabes smoking in a bathroom and using various forms of the F-word to make themselves feel tough.

Get with the program, Jose, or get lost. (via Drudge)
