Just Shows To Go Ya!

I always figured that part of conservative anger at liberal elitism and bias was predicated on an inability to understand context in language. In other words, the ones who tend to take most offense at perceived liberal bias are the ones who have the most trouble with comprehending English. The fact that these are often the same people who land in the "speak English or die!" camp has always made perfect sense to me. But clearly it's more a case of an under developed sense of humor. Poor Ann. Clearly she skipped classes on satire in literature at Dartmouth because they went under the course heading of "liberal arts". It's really our loss (since we're clearly stuck with her). She could have at least ended up funny instead of just shrill.
