We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We think it's terribly unfair to single out Barack Obama for calumny for associating himself with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright Junior's rather tame opinions. After all, I'm sure all right thinking Americans are still angry at the Roman Empire for killing black Jesus. Of course I'm terribly old school, and I'm still pissed at the Etruscans. One of them peed behind our pagan altar once and it left a stain. I demand multi-generational reparations, or at least they could make a modest gesture of remorse and buy us some Febreze for the tapestry we had back there. But I digress.
It's a sign of our corrupt and contemptible culture that we point out that shouting "We hate everybody that doesn't look like us and a lot of people that do, too." from the pulpit might be a somewhat less than generous worldview for a preacher, but only for the brown candidates' churches. What's Lily-White Clinton, doyenne of the Roman Empire (hell, she married Caligula) listening to in church? We've scoured the Intertunnels for evidence of the cackling cankled one's Sunday Service, and let me tell you brothers and sisters... It's explosive stuff. I give you: Hillary's Preacher.
You know, when I clicked on the video and discovered that it was going to be an extended fart joke, I thought, "Really! How juvenile, how sophomoric, how unoriginal." Four minutes and two seconds later, the tears of laughter had practically washed the contact lenses out of my eyes. Yes, it is an extended fart joke - but it is an epic fart joke, homeric in scale and brilliant in execution.
I have a problem with fart videos. I laugh at every one. Farting is just humorous to me.
My wife couldn't see the humor. She was too busy being annoyed by the preacher making a mockery of Christianity and fools out of those hungry souls in the congregation.
