I am really trying to be nice to Hillary supporters, because I know how down they feel and I really don’t want to pile on during a tough couple of weeks, but one of the saddest things to happen this primary is to watch Jeralynn Merritt slowly lose her damned mind. Today, Obama spoke about Vietnam veterans in Charleston:
One of the saddest episodes in our history was the degree to which returning vets from Vietnam were shunned, demonized and neglected by some because they served in an unpopular war. Too many of those who opposed the war in Vietnam chose to blame not only the leaders who ordered the mission, but the young men who simply answered their country’s call. Four decades later, the sting of that injustice is a wound that has never fully healed, and one that should never be repeated.
Most of us would agree with that sentiment, and I would argue that even if it was just one person mistreating vets, that is too many. Jeralynn, on the other hand, has another translation:
Obama Disses Boomers Who Opposed Vietnam War…
In other words, Obama intends to battle the war-hero McCain by throwing us under the bus.
Yeah. She really said that. Her update continues the idiocy, and she gets pissed off because Obama said Vietnam veterans “answered their country’s call.” In Jeralynn speak, being drafted and serving honorably is not “answering your country’s call.”
At any rate, this English to Jeralynn game looks like good clean fun for us to try at home. Let’s try it with the Gettysburg Address:
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Run through the English to Jeralynn translation machine, that comes out:
Flabber dee gidgit wibbity wop. ZOOP ZOOP. Vietnam war protestors sucked. Flusbachoon weezgahorn flurpity doo.
Is this the longest god damned primary ever?
