Yeah, it’s always bad when you have to explain your joke

Especially when you (probably) weren’t really joking in the first place.

Why not? They "joke" about raping and killing conservatives, sending to hell - kidding! - is just a throwaway line.

See, when you worship at the altar of tolerance and diversity the only thing you can't accept is a contrary opinion.

You got that right.

Deborah Leigh said...A friend of mine infiltrated a Lefty event a few years ago. She saw two bumper stickers side by side at a booth. One was the "coexist" sticker, and the other was "Kill Dick Cheney". Probably the joke booth, right?

Deborah Leigh said...Oops! SteveS, how are you doing? Did you get back to the Left Coast?

Hi Deborah and other denizens of Pacostan! MSC sent a bus to bring us down to Norfolk Wednesday (there were about forty or so stranded MSC folks cooling our heels in a dark hotel, sharing our crackers and Vienna sausages). Most of the others were new hires awaiting their basic training courses, and here's talk they may be sent to San Diego to get them there. Poor bastards.

As for myself, my revised orders and itinerary back to San Diego came through today so I'm enjoying hot meals, hot water, internet and electric light to read by as I wait. So, out of the Sandy Zone, grateful that I don't have to remain there but acutely aware of the poor folks in NJ and NYC who will probably be out of power until next week.

The one bright spot is that James Woolcott finally got to cheer for a hurricane up close and personal. I mean it's always fun when they stomp on inbred rednecks in flyover country, but so much better when they flood your subways and put your apartment in the dark. Then you can really get intimate with the ultimate MILF, Gaia.

I'm sure Mr. Wolcott is most happy with the arrival of Sandy, Steve.

One might say that it's a marriage made in heaven.
