Let me paraphrase the founder of Glenn Beck University, where History 101 doesn't plan on teaching kids that August 28th and September 11th are important enough days in the American lexicon to not gouge them with sleazy events tied to slimy so-called "non-profits."
I don't think anybody in their right mind is going to ever say this out loud, but I wonder if I'm the only one that feels this way. You know, it took me about 20 years to start hating what has become the craziest part of the neo-fascist right that personalities like Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Joe Miller represent in the way they portray themselves constantly as victims. Took me about 20 years.
And I had such compassion for them initially, and really, you know, I wanted to help 'em, and I was like 'Let's give 'em money or at least get them into therapy, you know, and all of this stuff, and I'm thinking - you know all the countless GOP figures who constantly are claiming themselves to be victims, whether it is Palin having to add ten feet on top of her fence, or Larry Craig having to hire a lawyer, or Vic Kohring not being able to get his daughter an Easter egg, or Joe Miller having an election stolen from him, or Joe Miller being singled out for an accident ticket because he's running for the Senate, or - you know what I mean - I don't hate any of them.
Not even one of them.
But when I see, ya know, a GOP celebrity/political figure brazenly lie on Television, or twitter or facebook or a fan shrine or whatever, I'm just like, "Oh - SHUT THE FUCK UP!" I am so sick of them because they're always complaining.
And we did our BEST for 'em.
It's only about 500 or maybe 5,000 GOP complainers out there, with billions of post Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission bucks behind them.
I only wish I could help them get into some decent therapy. And off of our backs.
