A letter to the editor

I have to share the first two paragraphs of a letter to the editor in today's El Paso Times. It was pretty funny. Here goes....

"King's funeral turned political

"As I watched the televised funeral service for Coretta Scott King, I first became angry at the likes of Jimmy Carter, the Clintons and others turning King's service into a Democratic political event.

"Then I regained my composure as I realized Preside Bush, wife Laura and the president's father, former President Bush, were the only ones displaying aristocratic culture and just-plain good breeding."

It's pretty obvious this writer is among the 50% of Americans Paul Craig Roberts says are "incapable of acquiring, processing and understanding information," in his article Polls Show Many Americans are Simply Dumber Than Bush I wrote about last month.

And I have to conclude, after reading that letter, about half of the people reading this blog are the result of just plain bad breeding. (Oh wait, it's far greater than that, isn't it? We don't have any aristocratic culture people visit this blog. I forgot.)

Rather than phrasing it as "incapable of acquiring, processing and understanding information" I would use "has shit for brains." Then again, I suppose if you want to inform those that do not have shit for brains that Bush supporters have shit for brains without those who have shit for brains realizing you think they have shit for brains, then "incapable of acquiring, processing and understanding information" is probably the way to go.

brian de ford: Thanks for your comment. I think you pretty well hit the nail on the head in the most indelicate way (for those who have shit for brains). I suspect that's what Paul Craig Roberts was trying to say without offending those who don't realize their brains are shit.

Thanks for putting in terms the brainless shitheads might better understand.

To put it another way...

You probably have shit for brains if:

1) You do not realize that somebody who says that you are "incapable of acquiring, processing and understanding information" means he thinks you have shit for brains.

2) The last greetings card you bought said "Happy Birthday Uncle Dad."

3) You believe that if your mother and father are also brother and sister that makes you twice as good as anybody else.

4) You voted for Bush.
