Unlike that silly woman who was hired (and later fired/not fired) as The Ambulance Chaser’s “web outreach adviser” (or whatever title they gave her), I have no illusions about whether I would or could ever be offered any kind of position within a candidate’s campaign—hell, even “junior stamp-licker” would be too hot a seat for me to hold.
This is because over the years, I’ve said many inflammatory things about liberals, Marxists and, for that matter Republicans (the Stupid Party) for me ever to be considered.
“Hanging liberals from light poles all over the land so that laughing Republican children can use their rotting corpses for target practice” might be seen by some as too hateful (although not by many of my Readers, who have suggested that I’d gone soft because I didn’t advocate pre-hanging torture).
“Using Democrats for bayonet practice” was another charming statement of mine—although that one did get the nod of approval from my Readers, who then immediately fell to squabbling over whether I should use the Mosin-Nagant’s long cruciform bayonet instead of the American-made M4 mounted on the American-made M1 Carbine. (Call me agnostic on that one.)
The fact that I myself am an immigrant would not stop the “anti-immigrant” label, simply because of my suggestion to use African lions to patrol our southern border fence (the fence being a sine qua non, of course).
Perhaps the poll concerning which liberal hellhole we should nuke first was a little over the top, as was my wish to tie Ted Kennedy to a chair and beat him senseless with a lead pipe. All hyperbole, of course, but in these days of pussified politically-correct speech, maybe a tad strong for Election 2008.
There’s a part of me that says, “at least he admits it up front and disqualifies himself from campaign employment.” But it’s drowned out by the other part of me that says, “and Michelle was offended by Amanda after reading this stuff on a regular basis?”
