Deep, man. Deep. (Seriously. I'm not wearing waders...)

Click to...engorge the stoopid.
Mind you: slightly.
But this one, I admit, got me today:
Personal weakness, plain and simple. (One can only absorb so much stoopid before it just flows over, I guess.) I just couldn't let it go:
This is what now passes for wit? Really?
I don't think this sort of thing even qualifies for simple "Gell-Mann Amnesia effect" any more. The crusade of the True Believer requires a more... active commitment to his ignorance than that.
I suspect that Mr. Clever Man here would not particularly appreciate having his words used against him, but in at least one respect he is precisely accurate. All these school shootings--each and every single one in a posted "gun-free zone"...
It's true--nobody seems interested in changing that.
And of course there's the tacit admission that he's just peachy-fine with the TSA/DHS approach to public safety, so long as he gets to designate the Kulaks. (A nice stylistic touch, really.)
It's a good thing he's such a decent, upstanding, ...what's the word? Oh, yeah: politically reliable person. I'm sure it helps him sleep at night. (You know, since he's not doing anything wrong...)
