Letters to the Editor

Typical response

October 13, 2009


To the editor:

Jan. 20, 2009: banner headlines, “First African-American President.”

Oct. 10, 2009: typical Republican reaction, “[Nobel] Prize only underscores Obama’s lack of accomplishments.”

“It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe.” — Bob Dylan, “Idiot Wind.”

Um, Stuart, how are those two headlines supposed to relate? Is it your contention that the first is supposed to eliminate anything negative, like the last?

Okey dokey. Henceforth, all headlines and articles shall contain one central theme, just for Stu:

Oct. 13, 2009: "President Obama went to the can. It doesn't stink."

Happy now?

The only way this LTE makes sense is this:

Obama is Black therefore Obama's accomplishment of being "black" makes him deserving of the NPP and Republicans are racists to say otherwise.

With that logic Kip from Napolen Dynamite is also deserving of a NPP.

Peace Out.

So Mr Stuart Shafer - does pointing-out the obvious make the people who do it stupid? If your assertion is true, how does the President winning this award underscore his accomplishments?

Your partisanship has made you impervious to common sense. Wise up.

Should all these feats surprise anyone given they were accomplished by someone the right continuously proclaims a messiah?

Dear Leader saw a cow on TV this evening. The crowd at Madrid has awarded him both ears and the tail.

How does this even qualify as a letter to the editor?

as a posted online comment, it would rank very high on the vapid scale and be mostly just ignored...if Bozo or agnostic or one of the other loons had posted that is though it's below their standard.

proper way to protest the Nobel Prize for Obama: boycott Norway! yes they also didn't do anything to deserve it!

[for the really humor-impaired, I know the Nobel committee is a bunch of Swedes, hint: there's some humor afoot here, maybe you can get it!]
