Worth It?

Christian Toto:
It’s bad enough that one of the snarkiest comedy outlets around, The Onion, can’t seem to find anything funny about President Barack Obama. But the faux newspaper hit a new low this week by insulting former President Ronald Reagan’s Alzheimer’s Disease and his economic record in one nasty twofer.
Boom. Should it be so easy?

Liberals always take the cheap way out.

As opposed to Toto, who's simply a goof, Leigh Scott appears to be genuinely creepy, creepier even than whatever it is he's creeped out by:
I recently saw the first video of the school kids singing the Barack Obama song in class. At first I thought it was the promo for the new “Children of the Corn” film or perhaps another remake of “Village of the Damned”, but alas, it is not. It is real. But I think it’s way scarier than either of those two retreads will be. This is the single spookiest thing I’ve seen since “Jeepers Creepers” in the theater. It’s a bigger freak show than that Nancy Pelosi press conference where she lied about the CIA.

But, it tells us a lot. It is another nugget of insight into the twisted logic and belief system that plagues the modern left. It should be analyzed, discussed, and studied like the Zapruder film.
Um, yeah, footage of kids singing bullshit happy tunes about the president during Black History Month deserves an invocation of Jackie crawling over the back of a speeding limo to retrieve a piece of skull to put back on Kennedy's burst head.

Check this out. See, when I was a little kid I read this story. It was called "The boy who cried wolf".

Now, sure, it was an out of date story from another time, but the grownups always told me that it had relevance in my life. The point was, check it out, it's gonna blow your mind, but see, the deal was if you KEEP getting all worked up over imaginary crises, then when a REAL crisis comes along and you go running off to tell everyone that something truly terrible has happened then they won't believe you.

Based on what I learned from that story, it seems to me that at some point these right wing idiots finding some, ANY reason to lose their shit over Obama will eventually just stop getting any reaction whatsoever.

However, it seems that might not happen for another thirty years or so...

(The boy who cried wolf lived with sane people.)

One thing I have learned from folklore is that bad things always happens to the whistle-blowers. "Eaten by wolves." Yeah, right.
And we're also expected to believe that it was purely a coincidence when the boy who said "The Emperor has no clothes" died in a "loom-related accident" before he could testify.

The capcha is "priks," and that's not funny!

And that terrifying child-stealing hobgoblin tore himself in two. Yeah sure.

Most amusing that I wrote "was I was".

Perfectly reasonable dementia phrasing.

Or was it a spoof at all?

"was I was"

They do a cool reggae cover of "Walk the Dinosaur."

Jeepers!! Anyone heard of the dontgo movement It is apparently behind a lot of the Tea Baggers shenanigans.
I think it's a private Idaho of comedy goldmines e.g they advocate State Based News Platoons who, I bet, have ducky little uniforms.

Eric O'Diem? Is he related to Per Diem? Or maybe he's one of the Carpe Diems.
