"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 God, They Really Are Insane

I usually don't visit the fever swamps of America's right because it makes my head hurt. But Sifu Tweety at the Poorman just lured me to National Review Online to witness Jonah Goldberg expressing this forlorn hope:

Byron, Andy, someone: Is it possible that Wilson will be indicted too, or is that pure pie-in-the-sky talk? Because that would sure help a lot of bitter pills go down.

Now, that's good bat-shit crazy. But Goldberg apparently received this bat-shittier response from NRO's Stephen Spruiell:

Wilson was never obligated to keep his trip a secret, although if leaking his wife's name is a crime he should be indicted for ensuring it would happen when he wrote his op-ed.

I agree! Also, if stabbing Nicole Simpson to death is a crime, she should be indicted for ensuring it would happen with all her slutting around.

You gotta understand - women who get raped are asking for it if they're not wearing burquas, fags who get assaulted are asking for it if they don't act straight, and critics who get smeared are asking for it if they don't fall in line behind the Beloved Leader...

Plus Valerie Plame looks kinda French.
Fitzgerald was educated by Jesuits (you know what Commies they are).
Michael Moore is fat.
And this woulda never happened if Bill Clinton hadn't undermined the morals of the nation.

Jon, I recommend John Cleese's and Robin Skynner's book "Life and How to Survive It." It ought to help you deal with this kind of batshittiness.

Jonathan, I'm only trying to help when I tell you that you have to get right with batshit. Try groveling, bullying and little bit of plagiarism. It's a proactive career move. You could wind up on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or even become the editor of the National Batshit Review. If you like the latter better, you'll have to brush up on your hooting and gibbering. A couple of concussions would be enormously helpful.

And if stretching the truth about a blowjob from an intern is a crime, then the truth should be indicted for not being more accomodating to getting blowjobs from interns.

Same logic.
