Through some logical set of steps that I can no longer retrace I found myself reading Dennis the Peasant in the middle of the night last night. As is my wont, I looked back to his September 2008 archives to see what he was saying about Sarah Palin - I find this an interesting way to separate the sheep from the goats, so to speak - and I stumbled upon this post. It’s one in the morning and I'm laughing hysterically and pounding the desk with my fist. Good thing we don’t have downstairs neighbors.
I started laughing with the very first blow of the fisk:
What I keep not understanding is how right wingers don’t get this, besides the obvious willful ignorance problem.
18 words. Stating that you "keep not understanding" something seems to suggest that effort is required to prevent understanding of said something. For whatever reason, I'm finding that hard to believe when Amanda's involved. All too often, her not understanding things seems pretty effortless. And for the record, just who has the "willful ignorance problem"?
By the time I got to the dead Republicans I was falling off my (not so imaginary) chair.
Even better I searched DtP’s site and he has more Amanda Marcotte posts. I can’t decide if I should read them all in one orgy of hystericalness, ration myself to one a day, or save them for times when it’s all just too much for me.
Without further ado, the link. Okay, a little further ado. There is some language in here and, as the movie ratings say, simulated sexual activity:
This Week’s Amanda Sentence
I just wish I could remember how I found DtP so I could express my undying gratitude to the director.
