Gosh, that is a problem. Not only are we out of power, fighting cryptofascists with one hand and lunatic televangelists with the other while trying to get the media to do their job and report how the president lied his way into Iraq… we’re just not funny! If only we had the wits to advocate murdering journalists, assassinating a sitting president, mocking triple amputees, and attacking Republicans with baseball bats. Maybe we’d be in power right now!
Fellow VF writer James Wolcott ruefully agrees that libruls just aren’t as funny as, say, Zell Miller, Tom DeLay, James Dobson, and the like. And this has been going on some time, he adds:
So, friends, let’s all try to be hilarious next week. To get in the proper mood, try this column by the incomparable Cindy Sheehan, founder of Gold Star Mothers for Peace. She’ll really get you going.
