Dispatches from the Creation Wars

It’s reached the point where there are so many idiots in the world that I may have to make this a weekly award rather than a monthly one. Perhaps even a Moron du Jour, starting with the imbeciles at probush.com. These knuckle-dragging cretins have come up with a Traitor List, which begins with this statement:

If you do not support our President’s decisions you are a traitor

It lists folks like Susan Sarandon and the Dixie Chicks. Some days the world seems full of halfwits and simpletons. Why can’t stupidity be painful?

    Why can’t stupidity be painful?

    Because if it were, comedians would be out of a job. (This is proof either of a divine comedic telos or heavy selection pressure for laughter.)

    The traitors’ section IS billed as parody. I can’t find anything I’d recognize as parody however, or as being funny.

    I can think of few things funnier then calling people traitors when they speak their mind in a free society! Hilarious! This is a parody? Of what? Free speech?

    “All emails sent to ProBush.com are monitored by the U.S. Government”

    Zowie!

    Stupidity this profound, even in the name of “parody,” shouldn’t be allowed to procreate.

    This traitor list has been around for over a year — not that this fact makes it any less stupid and undemocratic (in every sense).

    Oy. I just ran across this: http://sugarwhitesand.com/

    The scum that killed Paul Johnson this week, and the people like them? Let’s just make it clear to all these scum-sucking remnants in the stagnant evolutionary pool they flounder in that killing Americans or their allies will result in their deaths. And I don’t mean just the ones involved….let’s just say one American life equals one Arab town. I think we need to practice more along their lines until they understand we aren’t going to tolerate their barbarian actions any longer. So, since our *wonderful* allies, the Saudis, oh so conveniently found and killed the kidnapping scum, we know who they are. Let’s line up all their familes and kill all of them. A little more mercifully maybe, a gunshot vs. decapitating them. I mean right down to the last generation. Harsh? Hell, yes it’s harsh! That’s the damn point. One way or another, this shit will stop. Either they’ll get it through their thick heads or there won’t be any more of them to do any of this shit.

    Idiot of the Month is going to have some serious competition.

    Maybe it’s just me, but creating a website like http://www.probush.com and making that “traitor” list seems immature.
    Like I said, maybe it’s just me, but that’s my opinion.
    I hate to point it out to them, but the polls don’t lie. Every magazine and website that has conducted this poll comes back with the same results; if we, the American people, could vote now, Kerry would win.
    I guess they just made that website to make themselves feel better.

    Kim, it depends on what polls you look at. I have seen them going both ways. Frankly the polls mean nothing.
    Pres. Bush and Kerry are equally pitiful candidates.
    It becomes a task to see which is the lesser of the 2 evils.
