An introduction

| No Comments
Mark Steyn is one of my favorite writers -- a no holds-barred iconoclast who calls 'em as he sees 'em. Roger de Hauteville, at Maggie's Farm crafted this wonderful introduction to Mark's latest column and it is worth reading on its own:
Laughter, The Best Medicine
Why reject the faux socialism masquerading as Democrat activist politics these days? Because it's no damn fun.

They're all just cranks standing on the corner screaming at the traffic and holding placards that read: "The Werld Will End Yesterday." They're always crabby and narrow and in a huff. And they invest every one of their damp farts with the authority of a press release. It' s a sad thing when they display their female armpit hair gone gray as they hold their "Scooter Libby is the Anti-Christ" placards over their heads. Sakes, lighten up.

It's the "facists" (Their spelling; what's with the spelling? they've been to college for nine years) and the old fashioned Democrats that are having all the fun. We're smoking big cigars and telling jokes and drinking good booze and doting on our children and avoiding headaches by staying out of Post Modern Art museums and Eminem concerts. And a deer hunter knows infinitely more about nature than some PETA fanatic that's never been anywhere not served by a subway, handing out misspelled screeds outside a KFC.

Those "evildoers" are just that, doers; doing real things and having real fun while you Che Shirt snivelers mewl 24/7 that Bush is Hitler and Rove is Goebbels and Bill Gates is Satan and Wal*Mart is Hades and Crude oil is brimstone-- and get this: Al Gore is smart. Put a sock in it, Muffie and Biff. You're forever in the audience, and at the wrong show, to boot.

You know who's funny? Mark Steyn is funny. It's easy to be funny, when he's making fun of you:
Mark's column should not be missed either...
