Flogging, dead, horse, shooting, fish, barrel, lather, rinse, repeat

Yeah, yeah, yeah, pointing out just how truly insane the spittle-flingers have become is sort of a gimme at this point. And cherry-picking comments is highly unfair. But still, I feel compelled to point out that the comments at the end of this Atlantic blog post about how odd the protests are over Obama's upcoming stay-in-school-rah-rah-rah speech are priceless:
...There is no way that we are going to allow this lier to get to our kid's head's using the excuse that he (WANT'S TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO GOOD ECT.) There is some thing hidden in it for him. If he would run this country as much as he just want's to always be on the news camerias and air time, then maybe we would actually get some where.

Laugh? Cry? I can't decide anymore.

Perhaps, as Dolly Parton said so memorably in Steel Magnolias (Or was it Sylvester Stallone in Stop or My Mom Will Shoot? No, definitely Parton/Magnolias), laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.

I'm assuming the commenter was a guy for some reason, holding a gun perhaps?

In the commenter's defense, I always have trouble with singular and plural possessives.

I propose a compromise, Cheney or Bush in a kid talk off with Obama.

Ah, possessive's . . . the bane of Americas existence. But its the ECT that get's me.

Now thats down right objectionabl'e.

Jim Donahue said...

ECT as in electro-convulsive therapy?

Yes, Nick, that's uncalled for.

Jim Donahue said...

Oh, and Dave, I'm afraid that was a woman.

I'm afraid overall, actually.
