"Unintelligible Yelling"

Now, I know this may sound odd for an Internet denizen, but I'm not a huge fan of "memes." I tend to find them as lazy and uninspired and subject to overuse as a good arrow in the knee. (Besides, I prefer more morally uplifting proverbs!) But if you missed one if the 4,000 Republican howler monkey exhibits "debates" (seriously, are they a daily occurrence now? Vote these fuckers off the island and be done with it!), then you're in luck, because this screenshot right here from Salon (via CNN's closed captioning) captures the the sheer essence of these information-impaired forums so well, that you never need to watch another one of these things ever again. A meme-worthy image for sure (no matter what that lying baked good tries to tell you.)

Cynical Proverbs 2-27

"You are what you eat"

And given the state of the country and public sphere nowadays, most people must eat shit by the gallon. (In America we specialize in deep-frying it in a tub of hatred.  And bacon grease.)

Cynical Proverbs 2:13

"Both sides do it."
 Ah, the cornerstone of the Golden Mean Fallacy that our body politic pretends is "unbiased analysis." This type of false equivalency in the name of "balance" is such lazy wrong-headed thinking that I've even named my blog for the type of idiotic rhetoric flourishes this phrase represents. So, note to dimwitted pundits and politically inert slackers: from now on this toxic meme should only be reserved for bisexual porn!
