Carol Platt Liebau: Tee hee hee

Tee hee hee

Here's enough food for amusement for the entire day. The quote below is real -- it comes from New York Magazine, and is the inner soliloquy of a Moveon/Kerry voter in the wake of election day:

There will be a draft, and we’ll have to leave the country: No way I’m letting our 17-year-old son, Will, be sent to Iraq. They’ll drill the Alaskan tundra for oil, and the polar ice caps will melt; Manhattan will be inundated like in The Day After Tomorrow. They’ll teach creationism in the schools; our grandchildren will scratch their armpits like orangutans and laugh, “Can you believe people used to think we were descended from apes?” Anyone who belonged to Students for a Democratic Society 35 years ago will be fingerprinted. The Patriot Act will be broadened to stifle dissent in the media—Paul Krugman will be sent to Gitmo. The deficit will mount, and they’ll loot Social Security; I’ll end up in an SRO on upper Broadway. And the Jews will be rounded up like in Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America. Did only Paul Wolfowitz stand between us and concentration camps in Kentucky? New York will be attacked again and . . . Wait. Maybe the guys in power want us to be attacked. What better way to get rid of all those noisome New Yorkers than to have an Al Qaeda dirty bomb explode in Grand Central at rush hour? No more need to bail out New York, because there won’t be any New York.

Read it all here. And they think Red Staters are paranoid, delusional and hate-filled? Chortle, chortle. Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad -- if this aphorism is true, Manhattanites are in a lot more trouble than any of us suspects.

On the other hand, maybe we ought to tell this pitifully distraught author that all his suspicions are true, true -- and it's time for him to head for Canada. Hee hee.

Carol I think the quote is "Those who the gods wish to destroy they first make proud". Of course yours might just be another quote from someone else. I have no author for either. Great Blog keep up the good work

Yup...drilling for oil will definitely flood New York. Talk about a city's inflated view of itself. Do New Yorker realize that all those taxicabs really hinder the caribou migrations?

I've read so many like this. IMAO had a link to a hord of photos of people apologizing to the world for the election. What's wrong with these people?
