Ducks for Dean Farting in Church  

Sunday, February 20, 2005

OK, OK, old Weird Howard has put his foot in his mouth ALREADY! Now before I give my take on the whole thing, let me start by saying that it shouldn't come as a surprise to ANYONE that a Democrat (read that Socialist) would make a racist comment. These buttmunchers have been putting racist policies into place for the better part of this century, most notably Affirmative Action (Institutionalized Discrimination) and Welfare (Institutionalized Oppression). This sorry-ass attempt at humor rightly went over like a fart in church and I'm GLAD about that. In trying to paint conservatives as racist, he let his own racist tendencies show. This is GOOD FOR EVERYONE, as a well-informed electorate can only be a good thing.

I also have no problem with the very loud and sour reaction coming from conservatives all over the country about this. We bloggers and those who comment on our blogs are truly the embodiment of free speech as the founders intended. We should all call an asshole when we see one.

My beef with this whole thing is the bullshit that has come about as a result of this little quip. Is it right for us to jump all over this guy because he, in the act of exercising his free speech rights, says something completely stupid and insensitive? I submit this is something that we have ALL done. We should be thanking Dr. Dipshit for his remarks, since they have shown everyone, in bright living color, the true nature of his party. I don't know how many more of these it will take before a significant number of people see exactly what has been going on in the Dems opinions, but the reaction from the right has been apalling from the standpoint of it making us look just like the Dems.

But do we really want to be looked upon the way the Dems were looked upon when they tried to crucify Trent Lott a few years back? Do we really want to look like such crybabies? I mean, sure, the Dems started all this, but it this the way to end it? And why are we crying racism, kicking and screaming like a bunch of Clintonites, when we should simply be demonstrating it? Why not take an "I told you so" approach? We should be more level-headed when calling assholes in situations like this. The problem is that in pouting about like crybabies as we have, we have taken away the credibility of thoughtfulness that got our people elected this last election.

Of course we should voice our opinions on the matter, and if our thoughts are that Wacky Dean is an asshole, so be it. But presenting this fact in the temperamental way that we have is as deplorable as democrats accusing conservatives of trying to take food from schoolchildren or kicking old people out of their nursing homes. Rants are fun, let's face it. But there is a time and place for everything, and all the years of the Democrappers showing us just how poor their judgment can be in situations such as these don't seem to have taught us a damned thing about our own more acceptable judgment in the same period of time. Now that we are in control, does that now justify our acting like THEM? I'm just not sure. What I am sure about is that this is stupid and the more we engage in it the more we look and sound like THEM. Remember: if it looks like a duck, and waddles like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, you've got a duck.
