Ah irony. [Breaths in deeply] That sweet smell resulting from those being caught completely unaware that the words they are blogging don’t actually have the intended effect, but instead reflect upon them in a most unfortunate way. Take a recent post by our favorite wingnut GOP talking point automaton boy Matt Naugle. Matt is upset because the Senate voted 32-0 to change outdated language referring to those with mental illness as “idiots, imbeciles, lunatics and insane persons”.
First off, the 32-0 vote should have clued Matty Boy in to the fact that he was dancing on that far right ledge again. But alas, it did not.
Of course those who know and love Matt will recognize the irony straight away. In fact, his most recent performance should have clued him in to the ensuing irony. But alas, it did not.
So here’s the question for Matt:
Would you rather us call you
(a) A Republican with a speech impediment
(b) A stuttering non-sensical wingnut who can’t pronounce “blogosphere”?
You let us know. We wouldn’t wanna be too “PC” or anything!
