What, they worry?

The republicans are outraged, OUTRAGED, that Hillary Clinton compared Bush to Alfred E. Newman in a speech. I, for one, am surprised that she actually has a sense of humor, but I digress. Yes, it's the professional victims society back to their old antics about how unfairly they're being treated. And just how short is their memory? Apparently, they have no recollection of the sorts of things they used to say about Bill Clinton. I think calling the President a "scumbag" on the floor of the Senate is a tad worse than making a reference to a comic character. How about making death threats (scroll to #2) to the president? How does it compare to Karl Rove's comments about liberals' reaction to 9/11? How does it compare to Falwell's blaming gays for 9/11? How does it compare to Ann Coulter wishing that Tim McVeigh blew up the New York Times? Now, I understand that it's the job of the reactionary right to get their panties in a bunch every time Hillary Clinton opens her mouth about anything. But I wonder if they have any idea how ridiculous it makes them look? These are people who compared the Abu Ghraib torture to fraternity pranks, yet one reference to Mad Magazine has them fuming. Go figure.

PS. This is the last you'll hear from me for about a week. As lovely as this great liberal city by the bay is, even big bad terrorist appeasing, Saddam loving, cheese eating surrender monkeys like yours truly need a vacation. But don't expect me to spend any of my money in any red states. I'll be in nice blue New York, which republicans seem to like only when they can use it to exploit 9/11. I leave you in the capable hands of our operative deep in the heart of Texas.
