Several of the conservative sites I usually read are turning into whining, scolding harpies. Since when do real conservatives subscribe to the PC regimen demanding that no one be offended by anything, ever? So Ann Coulter told a lame joke. OMG! I hope that tender, sensitive flower Edwards recovers from the severe trauma of being called a faggot, I really do. I know that would be enough to shatter my fragile ego forever – well, at least make me cry and feel bad, and question my manhood. I’m already steeling myself for the inevitable onslaught of criticism for our occasional use of homo or faggot. I can just imagine how Ace will feel when y’all turn your wrath on him. Whattaya mean that’s different? How? Because his jokes are better?
No wonder Mike’s so sick of political blogging – with overblown, silly shit like this from our own side, I am too. The people we generally agree with are behaving as if they just bought stock in the liberal Kool-Aid plant and like Algore, the more carbony sweetness they drink, the more they make – so what’s not to like? It probably wouldn’t bug me so much if I wasn’t so certain that their outrage at Ann was due more to the attention she diverted from their favorite candidate (or from themselves *cough* Michelle Bryan *cough*) than any offensiveness of her remark. Though why “conservatives” are so concerned about some possible marginal fallout to a bunch of RINO candidates is beyond me.
What a pathetic, weak-kneed, finger-in-the-PC-breeze all you candy-asses turned out to be. You’re a freakin’ embarrassment to fine, upstanding homosexuals everywhere who know enough to laugh this off as the publicity stunt you clowns have turned it into.
Enough with the self-righteous preening already, so I can go back to reading your blogs without feeling embarrassed for you.
Update! As usual, Gerard says it better than anyone. A taste before you go see for yourself:
There. I think I’ve got the new speech code rule down. After all, it is important, DAMNED IMPORTANT!, to keep track of what you cannot say in America when exercising your right to (almost)Free Speech. By tracking which words are forbidden to all (except to those in the group to which they refer), it becomes ever easier to condemn and seek to destroy anyone who violates the Sacred Speech Codes of the New American First Universalist Secular Church of Agnostic Atheists.
For ever and ever, Amen. Or, uh, Awomyn. Whichever.
