Does this mean we can't start referring to America as a banana republic?


Guess we don't need to worry about Al Sharpton needing to find gainful employment for want of manufactured outrages in this idyllic new post-racial world. Whenever there's a dumb current-events joke that could be construed as racist -- that is, if you really don't have anything else to get angry about, or if you're trying to distract everybody from, say, a broad-daylight power grab by the most corrupt pack of grifters since the Legion of Doom -- Al will be wherever the cameras are.

Oh wait, Gorilla Grodd was in the Legion of Doom, wasn't he? I hereby fire myself from this blog.

And now I just hired myself back at twice the salary ($0.00). I think I've learned my lesson.
