A brief interruption to extend Congrats to HTML Mencken and the Sadly, Naughts

Glenn Greenwald today:

As HTML Mencken insightfully noted in what is one of the best blog posts ever written, our political mores demand vehement repudiation of petty acts of incivility (not all, but most) while tolerating and even approving of extremely consequential acts of indecency as long as they're advocated with superficial civility.

We will return to posting pictures from our National Parks in short order.

UPDATE!

Tea Party Patriots Cheer Congressman Joe Wilson vs. Obama; Call For Defeating U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd in 2010

teabaggers...all of 1500 strong!
Health care doesn't fit in their throats
Old Navy fondly remembers GW Bush
Liberals can only call names and attack as they have IDIOT VOICES
Our Cindy Speaks for Our Troops!, and also, POOP!
REUPDATE!

Hey, you, get off of my pink cloud of Obama

Thus am I reminded to add the chundermuffin and emu tags.

I'm pimping this link where Joe K. and Mark Halperin hang their hats, just for the halibut.

Thank you for showcasing these beautifully moving expressions of remembrance of our national tragedy, and a celebration of America's common heritage.

Our nation surely knows how to come together in unity, celebrating our common values. Nicht wahr?

I am verklempt!

I published my own comment in reaction to those "Patriots", g.

But it was held in moderation and never released...judged to be too unhinged/unpatriotic or some such, perhaps.

P.S. For some reason the alt text in the captions wasn't showing up on Firefox for me (although it does for IE), so I added 'title=...' as well.

Some one is going to do a hip in, dancing on wet steps. Then it won't be so funny

I missed the protesters defecating on the flag. 2 girls I assume.
