And the Slide into Intellectual Mush is Almost Complete… January 9, 2006, 9:24 pm

“Famous” Jazz musician Harry Belafonte called Bush the “Greatest Terrorist” while visting Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. I’m not sure what’s worse: that the man has no concept of history or politics or rational thought or that he said those things while at the side of a genuine dictator masquerading as a president. Look, we all know that Mr. Belafonte is a few sandwiches short of a picnic, but this kind of stuff is helping to destroy the English language in a way that makes Ebonics seem like a casual hobby. The short of it is that nothing means anything anymore. So if Bush = Hitler (x=y) then we can logically conclude that Hitler = Bush (y=x). It’s basic math and logic really. Let’s continue with this a bit shall we? If the worst thing about Bush is that he passed tax cuts for the rich and the worst thing about Hitler is that he kill 6,000,000 Jews then passing tax cuts is as bad as killing 6,000,000 Jews and killing 6,000,000 Jews is as bad as passing a tax cut. Since we know that passing a tax cut isn’t actually that evil, then I guess neither is the almost near extinction of the Jewish people. Oops, there I go again – comparing mass genocide to a change in tax policy. It’s not my fault; I was told that Bush is Hitler!

Rhetoric is fine and dandy, but when it gets out of hand to the point that nothing means anything anymore, we might accidentally let the few real homicidal maniacs out there slip right through our fingers to do some real damage. I mean, sure that guy over there is filling his mass grave with 100,000 people a year, but BUSH JUST SIGNED THE PATRIOT ACT!!!!

It’d be nice to be able to hit all of these people over the head with a ball-ping hammer, but I only have one hammer and that would take forever. Instead, we are forced to read about their oral diarrhea in places like Yahoo News.
