Peak Absurdity Yet?
It has been quite the last few days in terms of peak absurdity – I have repeatedly been ask “Are we there yet?’
No not yet – we are obviously on the climb again though!
Check out the ascent:
Howard Dean said, “Today, in the 2018 elections, if you vote for a Republican, you’re supporting Donald Trump. This has now become a referendum. If you want to vote for a racist in the White House, then you better vote for Republicans.”
No, he really said that. If this is the argument that the Democrats will be offering for the 2018 election – expect a GOP blow out victory.
‘Michael the Black Man’, also known by his given name Maurice Symonette, in an interview with Big John & Ramblin’ Ray allegedly laid out this gem: “The Cherokee Indians had money and they were the only ones able to even really afford slaves, and almost all of them were the ones that had slaves, and all the slave states were states where reservations were located.” He also claimed that John McCain is a ’full blooded Cherokee’, the KuKlux Klan was founded by the Cherokee, and that the hoods that Klansman historically wear are “like tents because they were indicating that those are tepees and that they were hiding under it.”
The good new is that Mr. Symonette has a vivid imagination, the bad news is that he may not be able to differentiate his imagination from reality.
Last but not least – ESPN removed an announcer from an upcoming college football game because his name is Robert Lee. Not even words to describe the absurdity involved in this.
There you go – still ascending Mount Absurdity but not yet near the peak!
