Duck And Cover!

Rating: ES

The Washington Post's Style Invitational asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

My very favorite?

Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

This effect is the one that my right-wing ultra-conservative brothers and sisters in Christ seem to count on the most as they continue to publicly flog their various agendae.

Build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stem the tide of Mexicans currently flooding our job market? Great!
Who do you think is going to build it, Einstein? The DAR?

Strengthen heterosexual marriages by amending the U.S. Constitution to prevent gay people from ever being able to marry one another? Terrific!
Umm... wasn't the divorce rate up over 50% before any state allowed gay marriage? Do you imagine that all the married people in the country are just dying to bust out gay all over?

Let's get all the gay people out of the Church!
OK... hope you're not too attached to having music or flowers or being able to ever find anything in the sacristy...

We need religion back in the public schools!
You have to be certified to teach math or history or English, but let's not have any standards at all when it comes to what your kids are learning about God from the football coach.

The Dopeler Effect: Working to make America strong, scared, and stupid. Because every global village needs a bully.

yours in the struggle,
