Can You Feel The Love

From a reader:

What a retarded analysis that was! But maybe I was more retarded for

expecting something intelligent from an NRO column.

If this were a perfect world, you’d be fixing faucets or something–not writing asinine articles for a living.

Stop trying to pass off something stupid as something smart. Sophistry went out of style thousands of years ago.

Conservative a-holes like yourself always try to group dems together as one hyperactive glob of over-sensitive drones. You try to emasculate us and portray us as uncourageous. The fact of the matter is conservatives are the pussies. The conservative answer to any epidemic is a fire bomb. From pot plants to inner city crime to international poverty to… terrorism. You just want to drop firebombs all over the place because you’re too afraid and too lazy to solve

things the right way. I’ll firebomb a terrorist any day of the week—but firebombing “terrorism” is a whole new gag, my weak-minded friend.

And your megalomaniacal “leaders” from Giuliani to Schwarzenegger to Bush—all taking pains to assume Athenian statuesque poses… give me a break! It’s all a big farce. Or a big fart. Heroes, schmeroes. Anyone trying to be a hero is really just a pussy. Bush is a pussy. Arnold is a pussy. Hannity is the creamiest pussy. You are a pussy.

Go read your romance novels and spend the rest of your life trying to imitate every fictional protagonist you’ve ever heard about. Meanwhile, real Americans will try to solve real problems while gritting their teeth in the face of the over-romantic pussies attempting to elevate themselves by assassinating everyone else’s character.

Love,

Cancel Daphne du Maurier!

After the summer protests and rioting in many large cities, activists demanded a defunding, or at least radical pullbacks, of the police. So-called crime experts often concurred. So some city governments ignored public warnings and diminished their police presence despite a sharp rise in crime in many cities. ... Read More
