No offence, but have you guys down south considered that possibly you should be a little bit meaner? I mean: crueller. Because, did you really have more than one person who wants to be President declare proudly that they don’t believe in evolution?
I wrote a whole thing about this, but I can’t possibly post it, because it’s just too unkind. But look, you’re the country that’s rebuffed attempts to join church and state the most, of all the nations on Earth. You’ve rebuffed such attempts publicly. You’ve rebuffed such attempts frequently. You’ve rebuffed such attempts politely. Really, the last few years notwithstanding, you’ve got a very good reputation in the family of nations as far as the free speech/religious tolerance thing goes. Maybe even, the best reputation. People respect your integrity. You’ll let any jumped-up jackass have his say. I mean, in my country we’re pretty merciless with our ridicule, when it comes to fringe believers. Quite frankly, we’re dicks. We practically make those people (should they choose to seek public office, that is) wear dunce caps and smocks, and run through the streets at midnight being spanked by brooms. We laugh them off the stage when they get up to speak. We milk them for every laugh they’re worth. It’s like a whole country full of David Spades.
But you! You’re nice. And I respect that, I really do. However…
Is this what the fabled party of Abraham Lincoln has come to?
You should do something about this. Really. You should, I don’t know, send a message or something.
Still pullin’ for ya, America! You’ll make it; you’ve got moxie.
