So at some civil war symposium, they voted on the person of the year.
Sez Kevin Levin, "No doubt, many will shudder in revulsion after hearing of such an honor.
For a select group their anger will overflow with rage when they learn
that the title was bestowed on Sherman ... "
I can't decide whether that's purple prose, or yaller journalism. Or both. Yes, yes, I know it's a joke to think of Levin's flog (or any other flog) as journalism, but you get my drift....
Frankly, I think it's appropriate, in a couple of ways. Now that the ex-Museum of the Confederacy has become the Museum of Trashing and Bashing the Confederacy, what better Man of the Year could their be? I mean, who's gonna top Cump next year? There IS nobody.
And not only is he the best choice for Man of the Year for some symposium or other. He embodies the killing/murdering bully state the USA has become -- sending its young men around the world to kill and be killed; the country where citizens can't tell cops from soldiers anymore; where cops shoot pets as a matter of course; where the "war on drugs" and the "war on terror" have become wars on American civilians, which would no doubt please Sherman to no end ...
The country has gone crazy, and he's the very image of the criminally insane. I mean, look at him. Have you ever seen a picture of him where he DIDN'T look like he belonged on a psych ward?
Yep. Not only is Sherm an appropriate choice for
whatever's happening at the MOTBC -- he could take the place of the
eagle as THE symbol of the USA...
(Shuddering revulsion; anger overflowing with rage... gotta use these in my next romance novel!)
