Can you believe it has been one year since the professionally indignant and compassionately malformed Andrew
Perhaps sensing that This!Was!His!Moment! Mr.
By the basic cable comedy show:
The “joke” was that these right-wing zealots weren’t giving the new president enough time, that the previous president did worse things, and that I, in particular, was ridiculous for blaming the president for “St. Patrick’s Day” becoming “Potato Day” at my kids’ public school. (Yes, the name change took place. No, I did not blame President Obama — specifically.)
As is his style, Mr. Stewart took wildly out of context my clip from Fox News’ “Hannity” in which Sean and I discussed the Obama administration’s decision to call the “war on terror” an “overseas contingency operation,” and “terrorism” a “man-caused disaster.”
Well of course! Because how could anyone but a paranoid, unlettered Leftist possibly interpret the sentence
"...and since Barack Obama's the President, they no longer call it Saint Patrick's Day; they're calling it Potato Day. This political correctness is dangerous; it's the destruction of language."as laying the blame for the "destruction of language" directly at the doorstep of the Kenyan Usurper...which in turn -- like Commie dominoes falling -- led directly to the jackbooted Orwellian nightmare of some school somewhere using the phrase Potato Day?
(Fox News -- already a fan of Mr.Of course if Andrew
Beat BoxBreitbart's ability to elevate through sheer manufactured apoplexy a series of imaginary slights, trivial events and brutally doctored footage into Unimpeachably Damning Proof of the Sinister Global Hippie Commie Conspiracy -- responded by upping his on-camera presence noticeably.
And making him get a damned a hair cut.)
Who practiced a craft called "humor".
And who spent the better part of a generation methodically demolishing exactly the sort of bastardization of the English language
And why has the King's English been taking such a savage beating for so long?
Well, frankly, one very big reason is because the people who really own and operate this country -- people like the Washington Time's Ultra Conservative owner and Cult Leader Sun Myung Moon and Fox News' Chief Gorgon Roger Ailes (both of whom make no small contribution to Mr.
Actually that Carlin fella that Mr.
So I just wanted to take a moment from the busy work of destroying America to wish Mr. Andrew
At your age, Mr. Mr. Andrew
