Found Comedy

Read the following two paragraphs. They’re from an op-ed piece in the local paper. Trust me, you won’t see it coming.

American heroes from sea to sea
By Kathryn Jean Lopez

Leave all your Oliver Stone biases at home when you go see his new film "World Trade Center." It's all-American and well-timed. This September will mark the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on American soil. And Americans — unless they happen to have a family member deployed or had lost someone on 9/11 — don't generally seem to have a keen sense that we're at war. This movie reminds us we are.

"For no other reason than it was the right thing to do." These are the last words spoken by one of the film's stars, Nicolas Cage, about the rescue workers who risked their lives, coming from near and far, to save the only 20 people who ultimately would be rescued from the rubble — words that parallel Rick Santorum's steadfastness in the Senate.

See? Even warned you weren’t going to see it coming, you didn’t, did you? After much soul-searching, the GOP has found a way to take their shameless exploitation of 9-11 to even newer depths.

If you’re reading this blog, chances are you already are familiar with the stellar Senatorial career of the man my friend Tamburlaine aptly calls Rick Spankmoron. If Ted Stevens and Sam Brownback weren’t in the same bunch of knuckleheads as he is, I’m sure he’d get more coverage.

Lately he’s been drawing flak for continuing to assert there were WMDs in Iraq and offering to show classified Defense Department documents on Fox TV. What draws my ire are his ridiculous, hateful anti-gay tirades, but for some reason, I couldn’t find any of them on YouTube. God, I love YouTube – it even plays on Macs!

I’ve promised myself I’m not going to let another night get eaten up writing a lengthy blog, but consider this paragraph where Ms Lopez of the National Review spells our her thesis in greater detail:

Santorum attracts much more than his share of nastiness. Google his name right now and you'll get a sense of what he and his family have to put up with. His wife, God bless her, encourages him in his desire to serve. But it's a sacrifice for more than the senator.

And the hilarity just goes on and on. I really recommend you read it for its sheer outrageousness and genuine, gut-busting comedy value. This one had both me and The Missus in stitches all day.

Please tell me you are going to write a letter to Ms. Lopez and her audience beyond this blog, Fang.

The idiots that will embrace this film are the same imbeciles who don't feel it is too soon.

We should set up a poll: who's the dumbest member of Congress? We could have two divisions, Senate and House. Here are my nominations for the Senate: Spankmoron (R-PA), Ted Stevens (R-AK), and James Inhofe (R-OK). For the House: Jean Schmidt (R-OH) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL).
