Peanut Gallery — The Spoofer Strikes Back

Holy crap. Talk about vitriol. Especially that one by "Bob." What a (insert flame word here). (Heck), I get the distinct impression that guy could find "racist overtones" in a bowl of tomato soup. Yeesh.

And what the (heck) is a "prison shirt"? The source image I used was a button shirt a guy was wearing in a public buffet line. I'll even post that image if they don't believe me.

And on the topic of racism, where the (heck) were those (insert flame word here) when Leftists were calling Condi Rice "Aunt Jemima," and Colin Powell "Uncle Tom" and "House Slave," hmmmm? There was nothing but crickets chirping on the Left's side during that disgusting time.

As for any charge that I'd fall apart if saddled with Nagin's job, their criticism rings hollow for two reasons: first, after being diagnosed with malignant pancreatic cancer, everything else is small potatoes. So yes, I can say with 100% confidence that I would have handled that MCF far better than Mayor Nagin. Second, considering that these (flame word) have no criticism for Governor Kathleen Blanco (who not only fell to pieces but did so on national TV), their jibe is nothing but petty partisan whining.

Jay Des Dyson

DFO: I printed Jay's response to the criticism his parody (inset above) attracted yesterday because he deserved a chance to respond. His passionate verbiage made me nervous given my attempt to calm things down here this week. That's why I massaged the message a bit. You can also find a link to the original thread here.
