Dispatches from the Creation Wars

It seems that Dick Cheney isn’t the only Vice President who curses:

At an event at Union Station today where Vice President Joe Biden was heralding the $1.3 billion in investments in rebuilding train stations and passenger rails, a microphone picked up one of the former senator’s myriad Senate colleagues addressing him, formally, as “Mr. Vice President.”

That met with Vice President Biden’s standard reply.

“Gimme a f*&$#ing break,” he said, apparently unaware that the microphone was on.

OMG, he said a naughty word! Everyone freak out! Over to you, Worldnutdaily readers:

hey did you know during the battle at valley forge that george washinton threatened his troops with dicisplinary action if they cursed at all, his thinking was that we are a righteous and humble people and that language was for tyrannts and villians. you best read the true history books instead of the revised liberals ones whom try to discredit this nation. man, i really loathe liberals!

Right, because conservatives would never say naughty words. Anyone remember Bush and Cheney calling a reporter an asshole? Or Cheney telling Pat Leahy to go fuck himself on the floor of the Senate? Then again, this dolt did say that bad language was for tyrants and villains, so maybe this is a bad counterexample.

It it wasn’t in Joe’s heart it would not be in his mouth. There would be no need to watch his language. We need to say that in front of a mirror, The fact that he has lots of company is not a justification. Does anyone really stop to consider what they are saying? I think we need to analyze these by words for their actual meaning and then we might not want to be so free with them.

Right. Someone raised with the entirely invented and artificial notion that a given combination of letters is naughty even if you can say the exact same thing with lots of other combinations of letters is now telling us all to analyze the issue.

My favorite:

Profanity in all forms is normal for liberals. Ever seen a pro-life demonstration, with pro-life on one side of the street and pro-choice on the other? The conservatives will be praying or quietly pleading for life to be respected, while the choicers are spewing the most vile, hateful language they can think of. I’ve read that Rahm Emmanuel is legendary for his use of profanity. Hillary Clinton has an exceptually sharp tongue which has been caught on tape. The list goes on and on. It boils down to one’s ethical, Christian beliefs. Most conservatives are Bible-believing Christians and are temperate in their language, prefering to pray rather than spew obscenities. Most liberals have no use for the Bible or interest in Christian principles, and it shows in their godless tirades and everyday use of profanity.

The response seems obvious to me: Fuck you.
