In the course of my research I discovered that the Wall Street Journal Speakeasy section has cartoonists, and there's a strip about Phil Robertson's comments. I hope if you have some extra time you'll take a look and tell me what the fuck is going on.
UPDATE. After derision and rage, it appears the next stage in wingnut Pajama Boy fixation is deepthink essay-writing: Linda Chavez complains that, though he has only been pictured indoors, PJB is related to some epidemic of public pajama-wearing ("the latest entry into the fashion craze is Pajama Boy, the now infamous, plaid-clad twerp") that I've apparently missed, living as I do in something approximating civilization.
Under the maladriot ministrations of Chavez, however, deepthink becomes derpthink:
Granted, it is only convention that says we wear one type of clothing for one purpose — sleeping, lounging around before we go to bed — and another for a different purpose — shopping, traveling across country, going to the office. But convention matters.
Humans make rules that govern behavior. (Actually, all species do; ours are simply more numerous and elaborate.) Without those rules, we’d have not only anarchy, but shorter, less pleasant, more dangerous lives.Maybe wearing pajamas outdoors caused gay marriage! Or the other way around! Anyway it all adds up, and soon we'll be dying at 40 on slag-heaps in our negligees and union suits. Well, maybe it'll sound more plausible when Charles Murray has a whack at it.
UPDATE 2. Jesus, what a shitshow at The Corner today. Jason Lee Steorts objects in the gentlest way possible to the pansy jokes with which Mark Steyn enlivened his pro-Robertson column, and Steyn responds belligerently in a post entitled "Re-education Camp" -- "do excuse me if I skip to the men’s room during his patronizing disquisition on the distinction between 'state coercion' and 'cultural coercion'... if he truly finds my 'derogatory language' offensive, I’d rather he just indefinitely suspend me than twist himself into a soggy pretzel of ambivalent inertia trying to avoid the central point..." Sheesh, what a drama queen! Other NROniks rush to Steyn's defense, including Peter Kirsanow, who proclaims Steyn the new Solzhenitsyn. Speaking of re-education, I think a spell in the private sector might refocus these guys' priorities -- but maybe that's just my liberal fascism talking!
