And They Say We’re Nuts
by

You just can’t make this stuff up. Remember “angry white men” in 1994? They’ve got nothing on the Angry Left. The Washington Post has the goods today in a devastatingly hilarious snapshot.

The main subject of the piece has a blog with fairly strong readership. This is how she describes her evolution:

Then George W. Bush was elected. Then came 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, the Patriot Act, secret prisons, domestic eavesdropping, the revamping of the Supreme Court, and the thought “It has come to the point where the worst people on Earth are running the Earth.” And now, “I have become one of those people with all the bumper stickers on their car,” she says. “I am this close to being one of those muttering people pushing a cart.

“I’m insane with rage and grief.

“But I also feel more connected than I ever have.”

Howard Dean, your troops are ready. It gets better.

The front door opens and in comes her 6-year-old son, Terry, home from school, who starts batting around a blue balloon at the other end of the living room, batting it closer to her, closer, closer. She searches through her iTunes library until she finds one of her favorite downloads — not music, but a speech by a character named Howard Beale in the movie “Network.” She presses “play” and turns up the volume. “I want you to get mad!” Beale shouts at one point. “I want you to get mad!” she shouts along, startling Terry. “What?” he says, backing away with his balloon.

When a parody of an angry man gets you revved up and scared your kid, something’s wrong.

The Post found a colorful subject for the story, but strongly implies she’s one among many. The Kossacks will be hoppin’ mad over this.
