Sam Seder's Modest Proposal

Having listened to Sam over the years, I find that Sam's a great guy who's heart and actions are honest and good. Something is clearly wrong when his bosses at MSNBC can't see that his post was meant as over-the-top sarcasm in the tradition of Jonathan Swift. Remember Swift wrote ironically that the poor in Ireland could help themselves if they would only sell their children to rich folks to eat.

1. Timing is everything...

...this is not a time to be found with references (even sarcastic ones) to rape, assault, child molestation, etc.

2. If that is the case....

then there will be no man or woman left standing in the nation who is pure any holy enough to run for elected office.

3. I agree with you

and this is just playing into the right wings hands.
We eat our own and they are the ones who are sated.

This is just distraction and serves us not well.
