And we already have our first nominee for the next round of the Asshat Awards. Via Waveflux, comes this little gem from Jonah Goldberg, who initially found some humor in the plight of the folks house in New Orleans’ Superdome.
ATTN: SUPERDOME RESIDENTS [Jonah Goldberg]
I think it’s time to face facts. That place is going to be a Mad Max/thunderdome Waterworld/Lord of the Flies horror show within the next few hours. My advice is to prepare yourself now. Hoard weapons, grow gills and learn to communicate with serpents. While you’re working on that, find the biggest guy you can and when he’s not expecting it beat him senseless. Gather young fighters around you and tell the womenfolk you will feed and protect any female who agrees to participate without question in your plans to repopulate the earth with a race of gilled-supermen. It’s never too soon to be prepared.
To be fair, Goldberg offered a somewhat pugnacious apology. Nontheless, I think he’s at least earned a nomination.
