In a brilliant move Jovial John McAdams the funniest jester in the land, received this proclamation, and decided the best tactic was to confuse all of us. This is the portion of King capper's squib he reproduced:
I realize how tempting it is to become personal when writing about these people. It is also very difficult to exercise self-control, when those on the right do not. They will often vilify us, call us names, and make things very personal. But, this does not excuse us from our own behaviors.To which McAdams replies..."he doesn't get...he just doesn't get it?"
Just as I do not hold terrorists to the standard that I judge my behavior, I do not hold these right wing hatemongers as a standard with which to use as a comparison. Because they choose to make base, false, and abusive comments, we do not need to stoop to their level.
May I add -- ?????
For fun posters, try to determine either what King capper doesn't get, or what John McAdams doesn't get, which I believe is probably --- not enough sleep.
As far as Dr. McAdams, I think Bette Midler many years ago summed it up best to Ed McMahon after she cracked a joke. "You don't get it because you don't get it."
Before the humorless cry for my head on a pike (remembering the legend of Illusionary Tenant), let me also remind that as Rodney Dangerfield put, "these are what you call jokes."
