Man bites dog

OK, I’ll admit that the whole “OMG! Obama ate dog!” thing is pretty stupid, but then so is the “Seamus rode on the top of the car, as cold as a Bain Capital man’s heart” thing. But you know, we didn’t start the whole “Candidate hates animals” war. I deal with a person who is still convinced that Sarah Palin personally shot wolves from a helicopter, just because she could.  I could well see her believing “Obama ate dog!” without any of the qualifiers. Maybe this will lose him some of the orthodox Muslim vote, or confuse the “Obama is a Muslim” crowd. Not a bad thing. And interestingly, the passage from “Dreams” talks about the belief that one takes on the qualities of the animals one eats…which means that our President is, a ritual sense, a dog.

Is this manufactured outrage somehow wrong? I dunno; I’m just playing by the rules…you know, these rules?

RULE 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
RULE 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy.
