Sometimes I wonder what I feel like writing about and I draw a bit of a blank. This is why I am thankful for Republicans. Give them a couple days, and inevitably they will produce a howler. For example, this one, from a mid-to-high-level organizer in the Rudy Guiliani campaign:
“I’ve been very concerned about this Muslim thing for quite awhile. The average American does not know beans about what the Muslims are about. I am talking about the Muslims in general. I don’t subscribe to the principle that there are good Muslims and bad Muslims. They’re all Muslims.”
Wow. No, just wow.
(Also, I am horribly amused by the use of the phrase “know beans.” I honestly thought I would never see that phrase again without rereading a Henry Huggins book.)
