"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

My Own Talking Point

No appalling Republican wrongdoing comes without its own slew of moron talking points, which the Republican media machine repeats with the doggedness of a zombie army. Right now the talking point is to say the Valerie Plame affair isn't serious—and that in fact it's Karl Rove et al who're being victimized by "the criminalization of politics." (Via This Modern World.)

I wish the non-Republibots would respond, "Actually, this isn't about the criminalization of politics. It's about the criminalization of crime."

Actually, I have seen comments on this stupid theme on Steve Gilliard, Digby, the Poor Man (I think) - and other sites. All of whom make your central point there. It's really fun to shoot down such a stupid argument.
