Sorry it's been a while since I've posted, but too much other stuff going on. Plus, I have a crappy internet connection, so it's slow going. At any rate, it's time to present the second winner of the G-T-W exclusive feature, the "WTF was he thinking?" award.
This time around we had only two nominees. The first was a pair of teachers in Indianapolis, who gave out their awards (not as cool or as well- thought-out as mine). Among the end of the year awards they gave out were awards for "Most Likely Not To Have Children" and "Sir Clowns-a-Lot". As Jenera remarked on the original post, "How insane!".
The second nominee was Hollywood writer Peter Mehlman, who made the usual leftist comparison of Bush to Hitler. The difference here was that Mehlman went further and argued that Hitler at least had the best interests of the German people at heart. You know, except for the part where he led them into a war against the 3 greatest powers of the day, and wound up destroying Germany completely for a couple generations.
On the other hand, according to this towering monument to intellect and history, Bush simply is a moron, whose ideas have no merit, no thought behind them, and prove that he doesn't even mean well.
Anybody that has read along with me over the last few months can probably guess which candidate I prefer. Mehlman is, by nearly any normal standard, a complete moron, who is blinded by his hatred of Bush. So he would be the likely winner, right?
Wrong. While I feel nothing but contempt for this idiot, he gets a pass. He clearly suffers from Bush Derangement Syndrome, or BDS. I'm told that this is now considered an actual psychological condition, which of course only afflicts leftists. In their insular, generally upper-class world, Bush really is an evil on a par with Hitler. And as I pointed out in the original post, far exceeding Stalin, Mao and the whack-jobs in North Korea,all of whom have the advantage of being Communists.
At any rate, I suspect that Mehlman really believes that Bush is worse than Hitler. The facts that can be brought out to prove him wrong would have no effect on his thinking. In his world, his statements are completely logical and truthful. So he knew what he was saying, and thought it through before he made the comparison. He's an idiot, but he's not guilty of carelessness, merely stupidity and/or insanity.
So, despite my true feelings that Mr. Mehlman is a moron, I have to give the award to the two unknown teachers in Indianapolis. Their asinine idea of giving out joke awards demonstrates a complete lack of the normal thought processes we take for granted. Their actions can't be excused by insanity or anything else. Therefore, I have no choice but to say to them
"WTF were you thinking?"
