It’s Not Just For Activists Anymore

Even city-folk get caught up.

“All of my women friends, a week ago Monday, were on the verge of throwing themselves out windows,” an author and political activist, Nancy Kricorian of Manhattan, said yesterday. “People were flipping out. … Every woman I know was in high hysteria over this. Everyone was just beside themselves with terror that this woman could be our president – our potential next president.”

Ms. Kricorian allowed that she was among those driven to distraction, upon occasion, by Mrs. Palin’s nomination. “My Facebook status last Monday was, ‘Nancy is freaking out about Sarah Palin yet again,'” the writer said.

And comedians are getting into the act too.

Jeez…here’s a Sandra [Bernhard] who really hates Sarah:

When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting.

Yes, please. Let’s allow.

Rand Simberg notes that “These people are becoming parodies of themselves”. And I agree, but it’s gone beyond that. It’s been a struggle to keep a careing, Christian attitude towards the people online who have published such invectives against people who not only don’t deserve it, but who clearly have earned far more respect. Human decency has been lacking. The “professional” press and alleged “creative class” has produced such hysterical screed that questioning the writers mental health is no longer a (very) black joke, but is now a manifistation of real concern. These people really need help, and I sincerely hope they get it.
