But of course I don’t say that. I say that Sarah Palin and the tsunami of seething ignorance that washed her into the light of such a dismal period in American history as this deserves something far more humiliating and degrading than all she has so far experienced.
To have made a career out of embarrassing a nation with her endless attacks on truth, decency and on knowing what the hell one is talking about, she does indeed deserve punishment, although graphic continues to mean, (in English if not Mediaspeak,) written or drawn. If you’re less scrupulous than I am, you might use it to mean clearly written or illustrated, but what the former MSNBC presenter asks for is criticism: to punish her verbally.
Big fucking deal. It’s as though MSNBC considers criticism out of line and opinion odious in a world that includes not only Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, the entire cast of the Fox News Soap Opera and of course Sarah Palin. If TV journalists were forbidden to criticize or even to suggest doing so, perhaps we’d be watching ventriloquist’s dummies worked by invisible puppeteers — something like watching Mrs. Palin trying to sound almost as smart as an arrogant infant throwing a tantrum — and failing.
Bashir is far more of a gentleman than I am. Any punishment I might suggest would be more grotesque than graphic and much more suitable to someone who has worked so hard to damage the United States of America and advance the interest of the greedy, the stupid, the bigoted and deranged (don’t forget she believes in witches and the need to kill them.)
Of course if Newspeak is what youspeak, if things in your world don’t happen but trend and you think “graphic” means nasty, go fuck yourself. I don’t care what you think and you belong in the same public pillory Mrs Palin should be locked into while men and livestock line up to piss in her face — only graphically, of course.
