Do You Know Why ThunderJournaling Has Become So Difficult Lately?

Because the looney toons I am accustomed to ripping on have taken to becoming caricatures of themselves. How the hell are you supposed to satirically skewer something in a way satisfying to readers, when basically all I would need to do is cut and paste their babblings into a post and write "There." at the end?

Yes the party and its followers known for having a deck full identity-victim cards are becoming paralyzed by their never-ending competition to out-PC each other. And the latest trope going around amongst "real" "feminists" (which I will henceforth mockingly refer to as "re-fems" or "bee-hotches," interchangably) is so mind-bogglingly dumb, I am merely going to describe it to you rather than risking third-degree stupids to my and your retinas by linking and quoting. I'm sure most of you know where to look. Ready? Here we go.

The latest flap among the re-fems revolves around the following quote made by Barack Obama (presumably shortly before someone nearby fainted):

"I understand that Senator Clinton, periodically when she’s feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal."

Get it? He said "periodically" followed by "feeling down". Good thing that there's absolutely no reason for anyone to utter the nonsensical phrase "men's true rating". It might give your typical super-obese re-fem blogger a coronary (well, either that or all the cartons of Ding Dongs consumed over the years).

Anyway, the refem bee-hotches refer to this supposed tactic as a "dog whistle". They define a dog whistle as a bit of rhetoric that seems innocuous to the casual observer, but contains a secret, implicit and nefarious double-message perceivable only to those on the same page as its declarant. However, I define "dog whistle" as a fantasy cooked up by certain hefty keyboard-pounders who tend to outthink their meager cognative abilities, employed to effectively substitute their perception of their own cleverness with actual evidence.

Note that none of these folks made the dog whistle charge when Hillary -

Excuse me for a second while I digress here. I would like to address those of you who refer to Ms. Clinton as "Hitlery":

Please stop.

It's not clever. It's not original. It makes you sound stupid. And I, for one, have had enough of the misapplied Hitler references over the past 7 years.

Again. I implore you. Stop it. If you don't stop it, I shall fashion your name into something that sounds derogatory - perhaps a moniker that implies that you like to have intercourse with frogs. Thank you for your attention on this matter.

Where was I? Oh yeah:

Note that none of these folks made the dog whistle charge when Hillary uttered this:

"Okay. I have a choice between a truly inspirational speaker (Obama) who has not done the kind of spadework with the sort of, uh, experience that, uhhh, another candidate has --"

Just like Obama used the word "periodically" when talking about a chick, Clinton used the word "spade" while referring to a black dude. Yet there was nothing from the folks who wear their "tolerance" of "diversity" on their Ding-Dong-stained sleeves.

In fact, nobody noticed it until the professional context-strippers at Media Matters picked up on Rush Limbaugh's riff on the quote. Of course, MM tried to paint Rush as some sort of bigot, when he was merely making fun of the same type of banal food fighting we are witnessing here, that these small minded-fools like to engage in to score cheap political points and to avoid having to talk about anything of substance.

I swear to God, if these drooling pea-brains are in power for any sustained period of time, the English language as we know it is doomed.
