Warning:Offensive | A Horrible Piece Of Chain Mail:
I just got this junk mail and it totally ruined my mood.

It seems that the MSM message of "Osama = Democrat" has rooted itself much more deeply than I had originally anticipated.

Usually, it takes several weeks for Media BS to trickle down to some office ignoramus' mail-chain. I am astounded that it has only taken seven days in this instance. Further, it worries me that every-day people are going to easily fall for the gigantic Rovian lie that is coming this summer.

I warn you, it is a very insulting piece of junk mail:

_____

A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Faluijiah when they came upon
an Iraqi terrorist, badly injured and unconscious.

On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar
but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid

was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had
happened.

The Marine reported, "I was heavily armed and moving north along the
highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other
and both took cover in the ditches along the road.

"I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein is a miserable, lowlife scumbag,
and he yelled back that Senator Ted Kennedy is a good-for-nothing, fat, left
wing liberal drunk.

So I said that Osama Bin Ladin dresses and acts like a frigid, mean
spirited lesbian!" He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Mrs.
Clinton!"

"And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a
truck hit us"


______

If you feel that this is too offensive, please feel free to ask the moderator to remove it. I just think that it is an important indicator of the level of Rovian success in this new tactic.

:grr:

1. Actually, It Makes The Marine Look Like An Idiot, Doesn't It?
Edited on Thu Jan-26-06 09:54 AM by ProfessorGAC
So, whoever is sending this out, thinking they're slamming the left, is actually insulting the soldiers.

On Edit: In addition, since the insurgent and the Marine agree, doesn't that mean that the insurgents fighting americans AGREE WITH THE RIGHT WING? Duh!

4. I've seen about 3 different versions
in the last couple of years. The same punchline but different insults. Gore-Bush, Clinton-saddam, etc.

6. Obviously I disagree with the sentiment but
as a joke it's much better constructed than most I've seen from the RW.

So I said that Osama Bin Ladin dresses and acts like a frigid, mean
spirited lesbian!" He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Bush's Mom!"

"And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a

12. Some more healing
Pass this back to the one who sent you the other joke (and reply to all).

JUST WHEN WE THINK THE WORST THREAT WE FACE IS THE AVIAN FLU,

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of Sexually Transmitted Disease.

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high-risk behavior.

The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim and pronounced "gonna re-elect him."

Many victims contracted it in 2004, after having been screwed for the past four years. Cognitive characteristics of individuals infected include: anti-social personality disorders, delusions of grandeur with messianic overtones, extreme cognitive dissonance, inability to incorporate new information, pronounced xenophobia and paranoia, inability to accept responsibility for own actions, cowardice masked by misplaced bravado, uncontrolled facial smirking, ignorance of geography and history, tendencies towards evangelical theocracy, categorical all-or-nothing behavior.

Naturalists and epidemiologists are amazed at how this destructive disease originated only a few years ago from a bush found in Texas.

I have enough jokes to out gun most repukes. They're pretty lame when it comes to humor.
