In the great footsteps of George Costanza, we give you: Comeback II – The Shapiroing
This is what happens when America dies.
I’ll be here all week. Try the shrimp….
Moi, I can’t believe that the earnest devillers who wish to demand purity of thought, word and deed are so easily befuzzled by the imposition of a Site Scold.
Wowza, Wembley! Your plan – it works!
I’d like you all to appreciate big Ben’s thought. The pure Wingnuttery, untouched by logic, unfettered by sense, unbound by sanity. This is the raw stuff from which everything else is formed.
Umm, (formerly Virgin) Ben, what was that?
Do you mean Eric is like a food taster for poison, but for emollients? Or do you really want us to think that your go to comeback is a masturbation snap? Cuz, you’re married, right? Right?
Awesome. Hand lotion… that’s profoundly funny.
Ben Shapiro just has *so* much going for him — not to mention the comeback charisma of a 4th grader.
Anybody but me remember the old analogy between mens lapel widths and economic health? Tie width? ‘Cause this looks a lot like a re-do of about 1962, and is, perhaps, suggestive.
That’s the thing about trading witty barbs with Ben Shapiro. You just wait until he responds and then you win.
Back when they first announced that Soros would be contributing to Media Matters I thought, OK wingnuts, now when you say it’s funded by George Soros YOU WON’T BE LYING ANYMORE! As much.
Ben’s just showing his avant-garde comedy chops. It’s too deep for us.
Why does Ben Shapiro remind me of Luke Russert?
I don’t get it.
Does George Soros have really unusually soft hands?
How do they know?
I think it may be pointless and self-referential. That would be awful…
Harvard Law must be so goddamned proud.
What capthealy said…
Stay classy, Harvard boy.
I’m sure it was linked back in the day, but a commenter over in that linked June item by Charlie Pierce remembered Shapiro’s editorial in the UCLA student paper, calling for the joint awarding of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize to Shrub and The Poodle.
The boy sure ain’t improving with age.
And if there’s anybody who knows about vetting hand lotion, it’s Ben Shapiro, aka The Once and Future Virgin Ben.
Wow, that was some serious chickenhawkery. A second year poli sci student, in the midst of what in his mind is some sort of holy crusade, and he’s writing borderline slashfic. What a courageous, noble patriot.
You probably already know this, but it bears repeating. If you’re ever introduced to the Ben, don’t shake hands.
The guy in the grey suit needs a jacket that’s a size larger. It shouldn’t wrinkle like that when he’s wearing it.
They’ve really got nuthin’ other than “Jew! Soros!”
I thought it was skirt length that determined the economy.
Teasing this kid is like punching a fall-down drunk. He’s already making a fool of himself, and he can’t come back at you, so why get your hands dirty?
I don’t have anything. Hand lotion? Soros? It’s a fap-joke, I’m guessing. I love the exclamation point, tho. Like he thought he was totally burning the guy, and wanted him to know that SUPERVIRGIN MEANS BUSINESS!!!1!11
For my money, Ben’s “the blood of our brothers cries out from the ground!” column from a few years back is the Pure Shit.
I hereby swear that if Ben joins the Marine Corps, I’ll vote for Mitt Romney.
Hand lotion. Really? captphealy nailed it…
Hey Ben the zoo called. You’re due back by six.
Apparently Ben has a favorite brand?
Daniel Tosh has nothing on the Vile Virgin.
Joel”The” Pollack ought to do a comedy tour with Tosh.
Boehlert must be sooo embarrassed right now!Imagine, giving The Eternal Virgin an opening to pull out the ‘Big Guns’, so to speak.
Actually, Shapiro’s comeback reminds me more of the time Michael Richards tried to do standup, was heckled, and the only comeback he could think of was “N****r, N****r, N****r!
Oooh, oooh! I know!!! It’s a fap joke!111!!!! About Soros!!1111!!! Score!!11!!!
Sheesh. Pathetic even by Teabagging standards.
Jeeze. I just don’t understand how his mind went from point A to point B. Vetting a political candidate, which one would think is a very important process, especially to the people in his political party, to vetting a beauty product? How does one “vet” hand lotion? And why should anyone try? Total non-sequitur about an utterly trivial subject…
Now I see how his mind works. Like a tornado writing a ransom note.
Ooooh, I see how this works.
Hey, @benshapiro, great job vetting the Koch brothers’ dildos and wetsuits!
The man who’s riff inspired me to learn to play the guitar passes away.
