My sons, you have not seen belligerence until you read this link. Be forewarned, tears will roll down the face …
I realize this offends your effeminate sensibilities, but most Americans left to right of center are quite protective of their Americanism and get a little pissy when a rag like the Guardian thinks it should get involved in an American election.
For example, what do you think the response would have been if a foreign newspaper tried to convince local voters to vote for Bush?
My guess would be a long list of bomb threats, boycotts, lawsuits, protests in the streets, burning effigies, sign-stealing, innumerable New York Times editorials, a CBS special investigation, a website, a film by Michael Moore, and an entire concert circuit dedicated to shutting down the said newspaper.
You know what’s worse than pre-election whining? Post-election whining.
Is that a mistake or is Limbic actually Lumpy?
No, it’s not Lumpy.
Does anyone remember when the forums were fun?
Bad Lumpy, bad!
On behalf of America, I’d like to thank The Guardian for helping Bush win re-election.
That link was pure comedy! I wish I had gotten a letter from the Guardian telling me how to vote. This would have been my reply:
Dear Concerned Britons:
I’m glad that you have taken an interest in my country, but I am stricken by an idea. If you are so interested in having a voice in US politics, perhaps you should consider applying for statehood. Our 50th state is way out across the Pacific, and I can see no reason why the 51st couldn’t be all the way across the Atlantic. We already do a lot to provide for your security and economic interests, so let’s just go crazy and take you under our wing, shall we? It’ll be a right jolly time for everybody!
Yours Truly, from Florida
Not Lumpy. My mistake.
