So I was unfurling my “Democrats: Buncha Big Ol’ Flag-Mangling Traitors,” and pondering the words of a a fellow I met last Friday. Of a liberal bent, he confessed to being “disoriented” by the modern world. Hey, I hear that! No wonder Hunter Thompson ate his gun. Well, the drugs probably had something to do with it. And the fact that he’s been coasting (in a daze) on his reputation for, oh, thirty years or so.

I wandered over to Liberal Quicksand, where I found this:

“…They do not know it or accept it, but liberals are traitors to this nation…. John Kerry actually said in his campaign, ‘I want to make sure we have judges who interpret the Constitution of the United States according to the law.’ This is a 20 - year Senator running for president speaking. As usual, liberals are 180 degrees out of sync. Judges are suppose (sic) to interpret a law according to the Constitution! The liberals know this of course, which is precisely why they are traitors.”

Of course! The Internet is shot through with this sort of thing. Take a nit, pick it, and come to the conclusion that your opponent should be shot. Not by you, of course, you’re a reasonable person. But by somebody.

Then there’s New York GOP Chairman Stephen Minarik, who said last week that "the Democrats simply have refused to learn the lessons of the past two election cycles, and now they can be accurately called the party of Barbara Boxer, Lynne Stewart and Howard Dean.”

Well, I suppose that’s accurate, assuming that Lynne Stewart is a registered Democrat. She is the attorney who defended the “blind sheik,” who masterminded the first World Trade Center attack. She was recently convicted of aiding terrorism because she passed along messages from her client to other people, some of which may have had propaganda value. Thin gruel, if you ask me. But that’s the subsistence on which the soldiers of the culture war abide.

They call me Churchill, Ward Churchill.
Poor sap. He thought because he was tenured, he could say any goddam thing that popped into his head. What an idiot.

See, the thing is, free speech only works as long as you’re cool (Hunter Thompson). And by free speech, of course, I mean speech that is offensive, abusive, pornographic, rude, and politically incorrect, or correct, depending.
