well, anyway, most yankee fans i meet don't like boston fans much, either. from the pinstriped point of view, those red B folks are the very body and insufferable soul of the boorish, front-running and bandwagon-jumper-onner sox crowd they've long known and despised, and tell me you haven't met plenty of sox fans who enjoy ridiculing fans of other teams and deserve every insult they get.
which is all to say, fair is fair, and we all get stained by our associations. when you're at a party with the loudest, most obnoxious asshole there, and you do nothing to moderate, mitigate or otherwise shield the rest of the crowd from the worst of his or her asshole behavior, then you're fairly considered to be associatively culpable, and exactly like him or her only less obvious about it. either way, and you should face it--nobody is going to like you, and nobody is going to go home with you no matter how charming you might otherwise be.
which brings us to the question today of what might constitute "legitimate" rape, and why it is that, should you be a rightie today, every leftie you know (and especially all the ones you don't) are going to hate you with a renewed and legitimate passion to the extent that you do or don't attempt to moderate, mitigate or otherwise shield the rest of the world from the worst of todd akin's black-hearted and pointlessly ignorant political views.
i am too lazy, and too respectful to all victims of all rapes to find and cite medical evidence attesting to the rate of pregnancy involved in all sorts, because akin's black-hearted ignorance deserves no such respect or effort. just please let it suffice to say that every rightie pundit with a "liberal media" complaint should just shut it and zip it for a good long time now because that blooper is so bald and so putrid that unless they're all over my television and web feed with denouncements and apologies, their opinions mean nothing to me at all.
yeah, i know, a lot of righties will feel like the sheer ignorance of the comments should be enough to hold them innocent. (seriously, who could possibly believe such a thing?) but, see, you righties came to the party with that asshole, and we all know it. so you're either going to tell him to shut up yourself and never let him hang with you again, or we're all going to know you're just an enabling and approving stooge to it all.
because that right there thing that he said? that's over the top.
