Another day, another internets tempest in a teapot.
I’m apparently unwelcome to post comments over at Gateway Pundit, though whether it’s the result of me pointing out uncomfortable truths (calling people liars when they tell lies) or due to bringing on the vapors in the commentariat by using the word PENIS (in its scientific sense; that is, to denote a particular part of the anatomy) is anyone’s guess. Mr. Hoft doesn’t see the need to explain; his preference is to allow his flying monkeys to adopt the “you stopped posting which proves our argument WINS” explanation, rather than the more probable and compelling one: Jimbo dropped by and saw this post and decided I was no longer welcome at his joint, even though I restrained myself from using my usual foul language.
The fact is that if you remain confused and continue to insist there is NO DIFFERENCE between a congressman sexually stalking an underage boy and a congressman sending unsolicited photos of himself in his underwear to adult women, then you are, in fact, a stupid person. These things compare only in that they’re both skeevy and unfitting for people elected to represent us. Comparisons pretty much end there, for the simple fact that one of these things is illegal, while the other is simply juvenile and regrettable.
I remain firm in my conviction that people who are such tender blossoms that they are scandalized by photos of occupied underpants are not adult enough to be making decisions about who should lead us. Seriously, if just the knowledge that a PENIS lurks within said garment is enough to make you clutch your pearls, you’re too innocent for this world and may as well put an end to things now and do away with yourself.
Also, too: if you habitually use the word “garbage” to insult people you’ve never met, you’re not an adult – you’re a Real Housewife of New Jersey. I’m talking to you, Hoft commenter whose screenname rhymes with “jism”.
Have a nice day in Crazytown, folks. And just to distinguish myself from Jimbo, be aware of this site’s comment deletion policy: if you are making things up just to slander someone, or post a link claiming that it proves something that it in fact does not address or prove, your comment will be deleted. Other than that, pretty much everything is acceptable.
