Today, BuzzFlash mocks itself by quoting Al Franken’s second most jealous detractor (after Bill O’Reilly), Randi Rhodes:

"We tried courteous. We tried inviting. We tried group hug. What'd we get? The same pit bull Republican extremism that got us into this mess. Okay. Plan B. Time to take the gloves off and take these petulant corpses to task."

I haven’t the vaguest idea what a ‘petulant corpse’ would be, but I do have the idea that Randi has not yet accepted Barack Obama’s offered hand, and that her entertaining but unproductive bluster appealed to BuzzFlash.

Let’s put it this way: When you have a child who is a troubled teenager, you may have to be very firm with the young person, but you do not envision your firmness as a pugilistic undertaking, and you do not celebrate it. We’ve got some very troubled teenagers to deal with.
