Irony is pointless, methinks, without some kind of context. And this moron slaps this garbage up (rather, gives it to GoV to slap up), and then runs and hides. Notice that the author never shows up in the comments. He just leaves it to Baron Bodissey to defend him.
In fairness, I seem to recall a couple other pieces by the same author, also posted by GoV. And while they didn't offend me the way this one did, they were equally stupid.
Sadly, I sometimes feel that GoV has slipped dramatically the last few months. The comments especially are often nothing more than a haven for the incredibly arrogant and stupid.
Yours truly excepted, of course.
