It’s 12 AM, do you know where your teenagers are? Chances are they may be at a Democrat strategy meeting, as that seems to be the level of maturity from the blogosphere left. Via Matt Yglesias, we see this ‘rather clever scheme’ from Ezra Klein to attack the Bush campaign website. Twelve year old Ezra wants to “show Rove who owns the ‘net.”
Meanwhile, the other high schoolers at the Daily Kos are responding to paid Dean operative Kos’s innocent query:
I’m having a bit of trouble with this … perhaps you guys can do better.
Name three good things for which Bush can take credit.
I’m having a hard time coming up with one.
In case you were wondering, that is Democrat humor. Apparently, so is this, from liberal ‘funny man’ Al Franken:
Comedian and liberal activist Al Franken (search) has written an apology letter to Attorney General John Ashcroft after asking him for his personal story about remaining abstinent before marriage.
Franken, a satirist and former writer for “Saturday Night Live,” admitted in a letter last month that he deliberately tried to mislead Ashcroft when he sought personal information from him.
“In the letter, I indicated that I wanted your story for a book about abstinence-only sex education entitled ‘Savin’ It!’ I claimed that I had already received testimonies from several conservative leaders, which I had not,” he wrote…
Franken wrote his request to Ashcroft on letterhead from Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center for Press and Politics (search) at the Kennedy School of Government, where he was a fellow during the spring term.
But the school never gave permission for the use of their letterhead, and apparently wasn’t pleased with Franken’s prank, which he acknowledged in the apology.
I am searching for a word. Oh- it’s ASSHOLE. I don’t kow why people keep insisting Franken is funny. Chris Rock is funny. Bill Cosby is funny. Bob Newhart is funny. Dennis Leary is funny. Robert Schimmel is funny. Larry David is funny. Al Franken is an asshole.
