I’ve decided to take one for the team. Yes, I actually clicked through the Obama campaign’s insufferable “Julia” slide show. I hope you all appreciate it.
As you might expect, the Obamunists got it all wrong. Julia’s actual life bears little resemblance to the one the world-improvers envision for her. To wit:
Julia’s Head Start teacher includes Old Testament stories and the Parables of Christ in her lesson plans. As Julia’s mother and the other parents espouse some version of cultural Christianity or other, they have no reason to object to this injection of religion, but word gets back to the HHS bureaucrats, who report it to the BATF and FBI Child Protection Units. Julia barely escapes with her life when the aforementioned Waco Killers assault the erstwhile school building, now transmogrified into a “compound,” with flash-bang grenades and CS gas.
I like this video because the woman featured in it is a living manifestation of an important truth: outrage is a typical manifestation of ignorance. I’ve received a fair number of angry comments on my blog (I don’t bother to approve them), and almost without fail they manifest a total lack of understanding of my actual claims.
People also get outraged when you notice that they’ve done something wrong (at least if they think you can’t prove it), which I also find amusing.
