Too Stupid To Lose

These are the meatheads at the heart of the GOP that Liberals have been screaming about for decades.

These are also the meatheads that the Conservative Brain Caste has been pretending do not exist for decades.

But these meatheads might also be cable news viewers, and it would not do to offend potential dick pill and reverse mortgage purchasers.

Which is why Both Sides must always be the story.

The more we learn. The more baskets we are going to need.

Even if those baskets are made in China. We need more of them and soon.

The redneck who literally has no idea that George W. Bush ever existed is the purest expression of what is wrong.

I came across some reader comments on a Fox site (yeah, I don't know what's wrong with me either). Apparently the style-du-jour is to now include the word "Deplorable" in your avatar or screen name or whatever - like "Deplorable Patriot", "An American Deplorable" and such.

Remember now that Hillary's "basket of deplorables" consisted of the "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic . . ."
And so the comments of these proudly swaggering Fox "Deplorables" are heavily laced with (wait for it!) racism, sexism, homophobia, etc., calls to use "live ammo" on black demonstrators, laments that you can't say "fag" and "nigger" anymore, and worse.

So now I'm searching thru the dictionary for the proper literary device to describe this - irony? reverse irony? archetypical display? synecdoche? metonymy? something yet more esoteric?

That's because he's a Tea Partier, a philosophy built on ignoring that GWB ever existed.

I like reverse irony. Deplorable judo. Use the enemy's attack against them.
