New Hampshire State Rep. Timothy Horrigan has stepped down after posting on Facebook that a dead Sarah Palin is "more dangerous than a live one." Because he's stupid, he added: "If she was dead, she cldn't [sic] commit any more gaffes."
This latest witlessness follows another New Hampshire Democrat apologizing for a similar post. In it, he wished Sarah Palin and her grandchild's dad, Levi Johnston, had been in the plane crash that killed Ted Stevens.
Now, I'm going to go out on a limb and say these guys are a__holes. I know: It takes a brave man to take that stance, but I'm just the guy to do it. I would use stronger terminology, but even at 3 a.m., I have to play nice.
Anyway, that's not the point. Here's my point: Where did all the grown men go?
Seriously, why the hell are adult males writing like catty preteens on Facebook? Have we turned into a nation of 12-year-old girls, pining for the Jonas Brothers, planning sleepovers and fighting over padded bras?
I'm telling you, if my dad were alive today, he'd be dead because he would have killed himself.
It's not just Facebook. Seriously, how can a grown man feel compelled to write "EPIC FAIL" on a tweet? Yeah, I'm talking to you Eric Boehlert of Media Matters. You've gone gray; time to stop braiding the hair of your Barbie Doll.
And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe who won't return my leggings.
