Bunch Of Fucking Children

This is so petty and pointless but this shit absolutely drives me nuts. Someone asks the first lady about eating right over the holidays and she says hey, go ahead. It’s the holidays. Have some fuckin pie. Of course Fox slaps the headline, “Michelle Obama OKs Americans to Eat Pie on Thanksgiving” and all the usual suspect bloggers…

 

 

 

…and semi-human angry-comment bots run with the angle that’s been provided for them. Oh thanks your highness, so great to have your permission!

I mean… really? Grow the fuck up maybe? I don’t remember any similar outrage about previous First Ladies allowing us to read books or permitting us to plant more trees or whatever. This shit is getting so juvenile and pathetic and so analogous to fanatical devotion to Sports Team X that it really just blows my mind. People puff their chests out and talk about how they’re the “adults” that’re going to make this shit right and wear their replica tricornes and whatnot but they kinda fuck the whole appeal to authority thing up by running around acting like a bunch of twelve-year old emo pussies. Oh, the President said something mean! Oh, Keith Olbermann said something mean! Oh, the First Lady said something that isn’t mean at all but I really need to feel important/slighted so let’s bitch anyway! Everything is about me, don’t you realize that? Why aren’t you catering to my feelings? Now obviously this isn’t a novel idea, but I can’t find the link to that article about the party of hurt feelings or whatever so you’ll have to excuse me.

It’s just so goddamned odd. The rugged, stern Republicans have become some bizarro-world version of their own caricature of liberals. Always worried about someone offending them, and always with the identity politics: so hard being a conservative! If only I wasn’t cursed with this white skin, social acceptance and enhanced set of opportunities! Why does everyone have to be so mean?

It’s beyond my understanding.
