However, in a scene that has become all too common in this country, we get this:
Obama: "tasteless and offensive"
McCain: "totally inappropriate"
What a pair of idiot pansies! Have we become so scared and stupid? Really, guys, I think you'll find your balls rolling around under the campaign bus seats. Maybe some staffer found them and put them in the overhead.
I saw on the news tonight (the NATIONAL news) some idiot saying, "Some people will take it seriously and may use it in political commercials." Yeah, we have words for those types of people: dumbass; imbecile; moron. If we didn't dumb down everything in our society in order to cater to the lowest common denominator, perhaps we wouldn't have to worry about all of those idiots thinking this is serious. I mean, come ON! The only people not offended by this are the fuckers who are being ridiculed. And that just adds to the FUCKING JOKE!
To quote Mugatu, "I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!"
But Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and former New Yorker staffer, was baffled that much of the negative reaction to the cartoon was coming from Obama supporters on liberal blogs.What Art (Do you mind if I call you Art?) fails to realize is that the left-wing elite know that the rest of us are too stupid to get it. We need to have everything spoon-fed to us by the Nanny so we don't think too quickly and get our tummies all upset. Plus, as I've mentioned, people in Kansas don't read the New Yorker.
"They sound so elitist," Spiegelman told The Chronicle. "The essence of what they're saying is, 'I get it, but I don't trust the people in Kansas to get it.' But isn't that what the whole hope and change thing is supposed to be about? That they will get it."
McCain should have, to stay on message, said something akin to Little Green Footballs:
The cover is obviously a moonbat parody of what they think are right-wing ideas about their messiah. But they got so meta with it, they ended up wrapping around and making themselves look stupid.That's a perfect response. Just as much arrogant, snarky condescension as the cover, itself.
Obama should have said, "As bullet of mypantstheatre, a dear friend and, frankly, idol of mine, remarked, 'Personally, I think that's pretty fucking funny.'"
Or everyone could have, you know, ignored it. Like most of the country ignores every other issue of the New Yorker, which is, let's face it, a really boring magazine. Even when I was living in New York, I only read it because I felt like I had to. It never ceased to amuse me how important New Yorkers thought they were. Of course, I could hold that opinion because I wasn't one of the deluded East Coaster assholes who made living in NYC such a pain in the ass.
I'm going to have to stop. The irony levels are out of control! The ship canna take it any longer!
Is it November yet? I am so tired of this bullshit.
