Our buddy Tom is at it again. His straws are just out of reach and he’s been caught grasping again. This time he does it without aid of dictionary or even a quick Google/Answers.com search. First off, you can always tell when Tom and the right are off base by the number of Blumer “updates” to a post there are. This one rated 6. You can almost see him in your mind flailing about and grasping for those straws while pounding keyboard and blowing up the Hot Air server. Good stuff.
Tom proclaims the “mystery solved” in this post where he then uses “giggle” and “heckle” interchangeably. I know we’ve all lost enough sleep. Bizzy to the rescue!
FINAL UPDATE: April 24 ? ?McCain?s Early-April Iraq Presser: There WAS Heckling/Giggling?
To laugh with repeated short, spasmodic sounds.
Heckle: tr.v., -led, -ling, -les.
1. To try to embarrass and annoy (someone speaking or performing in public) by questions, gibes, or objections; badger.
Example of a giggle: Reporter laughs a bit under his breath while John McCain makes outlandish claims about walking around in Baghdad neighborhoods.
Example of a heckle: “John you incompetent twit! Why don’t you tell the people the truth about the state of security in Baghdad you moron!”
“Come on John! Give it a rest already! No fucking way you can walk around in the city without protection! Dumbass!”
That is all. Nothing follows.
