When he dies, are they going to do him like Jeremy Bentham and continue to roll him out every year?

I hate that I can never again use the verbal construction "now I'm not saying (unreasonable extrapolation of what I just said)..." because Glenn Beck has carefully trained people to believe that this always means "yes in fact I am saying unreasonable extrapolation".

(People in Indiana begin getting all huffy that I'm talking smack about their homie Glenn Beck in 5... 4... 3...)

It just wasn't working out, we really needed him around after all. We just couldn't function without the abuse and the grotesquerie. I had grown to miss the smell of dirty diapers in the wind, the sound of someone beating up their dates in the next room, I missed walking in to the kitchen to find food and broken stuff on the floor. My life just wasn't complete.

So we moved back in with him.

It's all good now. All is forgiven.

Waitasec. What's today's date?

There are people in America going around saying Japan is currently receiving payback for having attacked Pearl Harbor.

I don't think a clearer picture of what's wrong with America could be painted with any brush. How do people get into the adult world knowing about Pearl Harbor and not Hiroshima/Nagasaki? Is this not being taught in school anymore or something? Selective memory? Our grandparents considered the matter resolved, you know, we nuked two of their cities, we got their surrender, we even got their emperor to give up his godhood, and there are wars that began with unprovoked attacks and ended with far less harsh endgames than this, and some assholes in camo pants have decided this wasn't enough and they need to believe this is more justice?

There's no stopping the bullshit.

Actually I think it's that a lot of people can't get to terms with earthquakes and tsunamis - they are aware at every level that it could happen to the US, the same way 9/11 and Katrina happened to the US, and this fear, on its way to the surface, brings all their other fears with it, such as their fear of anyone who isn't white.
