In Response To A Letter To The Editor, Vol. VIII

From The Virginian Pilot, 11.10.06

To the Editor:

Al-Qaida and terrorists around the world must be dancing in the streets, celebrating their Democratic victory in this country.

--John, Norfolk

To John:

I'm not sure it was such a good idea to stop taking your medication. Please turn off The O'Reilly Factor -- as your inability to distinguish between fact and fabrication can only be contributing to your delusional state -- and contact your mental health professional before your condition worsens and you become completely certifiable.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I have no hard numbers in front of me. Aren't there more veterans that are Democrats than Repulicans?

Chris said...

Who was better at inspiring more young muslims to become extreme and potentially take up arms? I'm drawing a blank...

lulu said...

"their Democratic victory"? Al-Qaida is Democtratic? Huh. I didn't know that.

Brian said...

Well hey, as long their listening to "Dancing in The Streets" while dancing in the streets.

wonderturtle said...

Ha! Great opening line, Megan; I am stealing it as a stock response.

Big Orange said...

well sprach. Short, concise, to the point, and 100% factual.

Megan said...

Phil - How dare you insult our veterans like that!

Chris - That would be the Republicans.

Lulu - Maybe if you read the paper once in a while. . .

Brian - They're probably not. They're probably listening to some sort of pro-democracy ditty.

WT - You're welcome to it! Will you be using that one down at the clinic?

Big O - Actually, it's a bit of an ad hominem attack, but I couldn't resist.

Megan said...

Um, thanks?

That is just about the most tired, overused line that the Ann Coulter crowd has spoken over the past decade. Get some new writers, people. Jeez.

What the hell kind of newspaper prints a letter like that?? Do they print letters accusing Hilary Clinton of witchcraft as well?

Megan said...

It's Virginia, ya'll. But to be fair, they print all kinds of letters. They've even printed mine. I just pick the ones from crazy people because they're a lot more fun to make fun of.
