Hyper-ventilate much?

SHRIEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!! Oh, wait, never mind ... carry on.

SOME FUN FOR ALL THE KIDS AT HOME: Over at BigCityLib's, commenter "MikeP" starts off well but finishes with only half a thought:

I cannot believe that liberals on this site, can seriously look at that video and not think that maybe her peripheral vision was blocked. Yes I can believe it. They are liberals. Gayle, enlighten us as to how asking people to come to canada and leave their racism, gay bashing, and sexism behind is racist??

So, somehow, a lack of peripheral vision would prevent someone from seeing a truck parked up ahead along the side of the highway, would it? That should be easy enough to test.

Face the far wall and pretend you're driving. Imagine at what angle you'd have to look to see a vehicle parked alongside of the road ahead of you right next to the lane you're in. So far, so good?

Now, still facing that wall, bring your hands up to your face and completely and totally block your peripheral vision as much as possible, sort of like putting blinders on a horse, in a far, far, far worse way than what you could possibly ever get with a simple head scarf. Oh, look ... you can still see the far wall and the vehicle parked on the side of the road.

The prosecution rests. And MikeP is a moron.

: And, true to form, Blogging Tory "Neo Conservative" embarrasses his sub-species with a jaw-dropping display of dumbassitude in his piece above:

The Calgary Sun apparently pulled this story from their website after deciding it was too hot to handle.

Really, Neo? Is that why a major Canadian newspaper just disappears something from its online archives? Maybe you better have a chat with the people at the National Post, who vanished that embarrassing piece of neo-con swill regarding Iran and Jews and badges. So, Neo, you think it was because that story was just "too hot to handle?" Or maybe it was because the Post realized it was right-wing rubbish? Take your time, Neo, give it some thought -- I'm sure the answer will come to you.

Or maybe not.

Amusing how quickly the story getting pulled from the Sun's website is "censorship", when Ezra has so obviously lept to conclusions and made some horrendous conjecture.

Should people be outraged with the Sun for publishing it? Absolutely. Is that a bunch of "hard line complainers"? No. It's called people standing up and calling a bigot on his bullsh!t.
