Shorter At Home in Hespeler: "In order to honour our courageous troops overseas, it is vitally important to leave no act of symbolism unexploited. Well, short of actually enlisting, that is. I mean, come on."
SMALL TASTELESS CRETINS: And what better way to show one's appreciation for Canada's military than to desecrate their favourite poem?
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in The Star
The Left, still aching for surrender, ply
Their scorn, amid the columns' row.
Kate McMillan: Because when it's a choice between honouring veterans and taking a cheap shot at the Left, well, that's pretty much the definition of a "no-brainer" over at SDA, isn't it?
OH, THIS IS PRECIOUS: Even Kate's normally adoring and sycophantic commenters are wincing a bit at Kate's lack of grace, to wit:
I would offer the comment that it is a rather inoportune time to play around with Lieutenant Colonel McCrea"s wonderful and much loved poem...
Kate, I agree with BCer about the inappropriateness of modifying the poem at this time...
To which Kate, not having the sense God gave a urinal deodoriser disc, responds with the weirdly irrelevant non sequitur:
Inappropriateness is the point.
Well, of course it is, Kate; that would be your defense, then, would it? So if I take it upon myself to describe Ms. McMillan as a stupid, graceless cunt and my regular readers take me to task for being a misogynistic asshole, my obvious dismissive retort should be, "Well, misogynistic assholism is the point, isn't it?"
Man, that is so going to cut down on future debating time, wouldn't you say?
IT JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER: Hey, kids ... look who shows up in Kate's comments section to cover her back: It's child sex obsessive and NAMBLA groupie Richard Evans, drawing a creepily-inappropriate analogy:
I think you candyasses need to grow up and grab a brain. TorStar struck first and Kate struck back in a manner designed to make you think while highlighting the absurdity of the TorStar cartoon.
Though it may be painful for you to think objectively about what TorStar just did, you have to. No matter what freakin' day it is.
And there you have it -- the Toronto Star perhaps went a bit over the line going after Stephen Harper; therefore, Kate is free to respond in kind(?) by insulting Canada's veterans.
And all of this on "Canada's Best Blog." I can just imagine the unintentional hilarity as new readers show up at Kate's place, musing, "Hmmm ... Weblog Awards' "Best Canadian Blog", I wonder what sort of stuff ... Jesus Fucking Christ, what an offensive, despicable douchebag!!"
As if our international reputation wasn't already enough in the tank.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh, Lord, this really is the stupid that never stops as Dick Evans -- who aggressively defends the desecration of the poem above -- is the same total Dickhead who so hypocritically fakes a whole truckload of piety and sympathy here.
You folks are lucky I'm not charging for all this entertainment.
