In case you haven’t noticed, the Republicans seem to be on a crusade to free Americans to be as dicky as possible to their fellow Americans. It is now okay to be a dick to immigrants. It’s now okay to be a dick to your letter carrier. It’s now okay to be a dick to firefighters and schoolteachers. (Thanks, Scott Walker!) And have I mentioned recently what a colossal dick Rick Santorum is? And he’ll be at the GOP convention this summer. And it’s even okay to be a dick to the president of the United States on his own lawn. The unbridled liberty be a dick is sweeping this great nation.
FREEEEDOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! -Charles Pierce of Esquire Magazine
I’d take it a step further and say the “crusade to free Americans to be as dicky as possible” is a function of the Republican campaign to feminize the Democratic party because Democrats are generally more tolerant. Tolerance is for wimps and being a dick makes you a serious, tough person.
