Right-wing snark. As it were.

Uh oh ... someone's got their Underoos in a bunch:

The "chickenhawk" epithet that has become very popular with far-left anti-war nuts (like those at DailyKos and Democrat Underground) is a dated, lame, illogical, irrational and just plain stupid insult.

As opposed to describing someone as an "unhinged, liberal moonbat," which is cool, hip and just too fuckin' edgy for words, know what I'm sayin'?

TBogg, of course, has his say, which will no doubt drive the newly-anointed Keyboardists into paroxysms of rage and extended-arm bitch slapping, followed by a quick truce and a group outing to watch the early afternoon showing of "Red Dawn."

There might be some amusing blowback here.
I can't be the only one who thinks of a chickenhawk as an older man who hangs around the bus station hoping to "befriend" a naive young boy or girl fresh in from the country. I'm not sure, but I think I first read the term years ago in that well known handbook of family values, Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs.
It goes well with what someone referred to as the "one-handed typing" of the wingnuts, no?

"Illogical?" Does he know what that word means?

Erm, yeah. 'Cause how can you be a chicken and a hawk at the same time, right?

Unless you're a chicken who, like, acts like a hawk, or...

OW! The logic, it hurts us, Precious!
