This Week in Gatekeeping

Your fearless gatekeeper was away Thursday and Friday. In the meantime, Dementee posted the following nugget, that would have passed without comment, had he not intentionally tried to cheese off Noted Upset Marquette Alumnus Denbo and myself in a subsequent post:

"It feels good to be for a bill like this," said Rep. Marty Seifert, R-Marshall.

Hey Marty, I don’t give a goddamn how the bill makes you feel. Your feelings are irrelevant. The only thing that matters here is that you and the other fools who support this nonsense are stepping way over the line in this one

Alert reader and Noted SCSU Scholar King Bananaman helpfully writes in to note that Seifert's remarks were a facetious and sarcastic observation on the motivations some less intellectually gifted legislators may have for supporting the bill. Prof. Bananaoanashoanaiananinan offers Seifert's "nay" vote as proof for this assertion (page 1474).

Dementee regrets the error.

And KAR regrets that Dementee is a total slapnuts.
