Laurence Simon’s cats review the new Harry Potter book.
The Bull Moose gets snarkier than usual:
Santorum is Latin For Fool
To paraphrase Leon Trotsky, the Moose acknowledges that Senator Santorum has the right to be stupid, but he is clearly abusing the privilege.
The Moose is referring, of course, to Santorum’s charge that Boston liberalism and its alleged libertine academic environment was responsible for the Catholic Church’s child sex abuse scandal…
You have to give Santorum credit. You really have to put your mind to it to be this clueless. If there was a Nobel Prize for ignorance, Santorum would be the hands down winner. If there was a Super Bowl of Stupidity, Santorum would win the trophy. If there was an Oscar for being dumb, Santorum would get the statue. If there was a book about Santorum’s intellect, it would be titled the “Unbearable Lightness of Being.”
I guess this is one way to get through a day of crappy news- drunk blogging.
This is one of the funniest damned things I have read in a long time:
