Jane, You Ignorant Slut!

Sore, Sad, Pathetic Losers. I’m afraid ‘Ahhhnold’, in his own inimitable way, said it best here.

So many things have had me pissed off the last several days here in the UK. The first item involves that piece of trash disguised as a London tabloid newspaper, the Daily Mirror. They have the gall to title their disrespectful article “God Help America”. Yes, the same rag that brought the world the famous, staged and fabricated “British Soldiers Torture Iraqi Prisoners” headline (complete with color, doctored photos), now gives us the “59 Million Dumb Americans” headline. Considering the source, perhaps it shouldn’t have, but it did, get my blood boiling. Adding fuel to my ire was the fact that seemingly every time I turn on BBC Radio or TV, there’s some weaselly, arrogant British twit denigrating over half our population for voting for GWB. I close my eyes, breathe deeply and count to ten to settle down. I just thank God that their leaders are strong and have the sense to do what’s right. They don’t know how lucky they are to have a leader like Tony Blair. They won’t realize it until he’s gone, unfortunately.

That’s bad enough, but what tops it is when one of our own citizens writes the same thing – that over half our population is filled with ignorant, ill-informed, hoosiers. In an unbelievably condescending tone, the writer Jane Smiley, wrote a post-election article in Slate, essentially while she was possessed with spite and obviously depressed from the results of last Tuesday’s election. She should have counted to ten and chilled before writing this tripe and making it public. If these beliefs are pervasive among the Democrats, I’m afraid they’ll never be electable again. This kind of thing proves to me that we really need a legitimate third party to give us any serious option to the Republicans. Dems need to wake up.

Of that 59 million, I’m sure there were some educated voters. Do we have that many hillbillies, beer-drinking NASCAR fans and fundamentalist Christians around, Jane?

Of that 59 million, won’t the fence sitters that eventually voted for Bush read stuff like this and be so put off the liberal Dems that they’ll be much less likely to vote Dem next time around, Jane?

The Republicans I’m sure are watching and laughing as their rival party is imploding from their own hate and bitterness, and antagonizing any potential voters. LGF, as usual, has a great comment forum here: A victory for Ignorance.

One commenter said it best in replying to her statement that

“The worst civilian massacre in American history took place in Lawrence, Kan., in 1862—Quantrill’s raid.”

She says 265 were killed there. Well actually….

“the greatest civilian massacre in American history occured on September 11, 2001”…bitch! (I added my own colorful embellishment there)

And they were trying, hoping to kill 50,000, not 3,000. How easily she forgets.

It’s terrorism, stupid! It’s our national security, Stupid! (And maybe it’s not really so much about gays and morality)

I must finish with the famous SNL Weekend Update line from Dan Ackroyd in honor of Ms Smiley. It’s a classic line that I’ve had to resurrect once again and it’s so apropos….take it away, Dan.
