...regarding from 52 to 48 with love, which is his answer to 2004's unintentionally hilarious Sorry, Everybody. You know, the stupid site where people sent in pictures of themselves holding up signs apologizing to the world for not electing John Kerry. Except they're not sorry anymore, of course, because this time they won, and now everybody should just hold hands and do whatever Obama says. Well, here's the thing:
To: Ze Frank
Subject: It's a noble idea, but actions speak louder than words
It's going to take a lot for me to get over the way Palin and Joe the Plumber have been treated, and I know I'm not alone in being skeptical about Obama's rhetoric. There's nothing like moving us all past the race issue by constantly reminding us you're black.
But in the spirit of oneness and Kumbaya and all that, I'll give you a better name for your project at no charge:
Thanks for your graciousness in victory, I guess,
There's nothing easier than telling the guy you just beat that he should forget the depths you plumbed to do so.
And I forgot to mention the whole deal with, y'know, the last 8 years of lefty rage? It's just become such a part of the scenery, you almost forget sometimes. Plus Obama's voter fraud and credit-card fraud and constant lies about his past and false accusations of racism and the fact that he's already making far-left appointments and he wants to shut down talk radio because he can't handle criticism and all that other silly stuff we all need to get past now because we're going to need to work extra hard to pay for our own oppression. Whoops, there I go again!
P.S. I just remembered that, oh, right around this time four years ago, Matt Welch -- who was one of the guys who inspired me to blog, and who until that time seemed to enjoy my silliness -- decided he didn't like me anymore because I made fun of Sorry, Everybody. I stunk, suddenly, because I persisted in mocking lefty morons "regardless of who actually holds power in this country." The idea being that humor only works when it's directed toward authority figures, apparently.
So, great news, Matt: It's finally okay to like me again!
P.P.S. Sorry, everybody, it wouldn't have been the Sorry, Everybody stuff that Matt objected to. That came a few days later, now that I look at the datestamps on everything. (This is the Internet, and I can fact-check my ass!) No, I probably disappointed Matt with my heartless laughter at this poor fellow and this well-intentioned young man, both of whom were publicly protesting the mechanisms of democracy for failing to produce the result they desired. Well, upon further consideration... I still think that $#!+ is funny!Posted by Jim Treacher at November 6, 2008 08:45 PM
