What a maroon!
- Bugs Bunny
HERE’S A STORY that speaks for itself.
Nick Levasseur, a delegate in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, posted this on his Facebook account:
Anime is a prime example of why two nukes just wasn’t enough.
It made the news on local television.
This from a citizen of the country that gave the world chewing gum, Dr. Pepper, and the movies of Oliver Stone and Michael Moore.
But really, everything on that clip is pathetic. The two newscasters said that the comment:
“could be deemed as insensitive towards the Japanese heritage”
Is it too much to ask of you people to pull the carrots out of your backsides and speak real English? “Could be deemed”? “Is” is shorter, sweeter, and unambiguous. “The Japanese heritage”? How about any erect vertebrate with a functioning nervous system? “Insensitive”? “Pig-ignorant” has the advantages of being more to the point without any wussiness.
Just call a spade a spade. Surely you can think of a euphemism for “dickhead ” that your producers will find acceptable to use on a broadcast.
Speaking of dickheads, this one apologized:
It has no place in private or public discourse.
That’s not the bleedin’ point, is it? The place where it lodges is between your ears, but short of using a pair of foreceps and an electric drill, no one will be able to remove it, will they?
Here’s the worst part: I can’t say for sure, because I haven’t visited his Facebook account to see the comment–you have to register for Facebook to do that–but he probably thought he was being funny.
As far as I know, he hasn’t offered to resign. That’s not surprising. He’s a Democrat.
The idea of resigning to take responsibility for one’s crimes, malfeasance, or stupidity is a concept that seldom occurs to anyone on the left, as the Japanese will have observed from the behavior of the DPJ. Standards of conduct are for other people.
