When the parental crowd at the soccer game goes anti-Palin, I tend to keep my mouth shut. As I blogged yesterday, I can take on one person at a time, but I can’t take on a crowd.
I did speak up, however, when someone gloated about the fact that Sarah Palin, in an SNL sketch, stood there was Alec Baldwin insulted her. He thought it was brilliant.
“Yes,” I said, “it’s always brilliant to see someone who is a rather unintelligent alcoholic known for violent outbursts insulting a sitting governor.”
I thought I was being sarcastic. This guy didn’t, though, thinking that I’d made an insightful anti-Palin comment: “Yeah, he really humiliated her. It was great.”
People like this are apparently intelligent enough to make lots of money, but they’re incapable of rational analysis or common humanity.
