  •  here's the deal: I could see that the first (0+ / 0-)

    one was putting down the GOP for traditionally trashing women, all the way back to Adam and Eve (there's more context available, in other words).

    The second one reads, to me, like an indictment of women's taste (or lack thereof, since I've no idea what that commenter's really like) with a terrific measure of arrogance on top of it. I find it offensive, and no, I don't "get" the "humor" in it.

    •  There is context there (0+ / 0-)

      in the previous comment to which it was a reply, you just chose to ignore it.

      I don't "get" the "humor" in it.
      Here's a hint: look at the comment that karmsy replied to (the one that provides the context).  It asks a specific question of a specific type of person (another hint: the same kind of person that Digby skewered in her post).  Karmsy's reply was an answer to that question, emphasis added:
      See, what it really comes back to is that these are men who loathe women and think they're all conniving thieves who just want them for their money and planned all along to divorce them, take the kids and the house and clean them out.

      I mean, it couldn't have to do with the fact that no woman could stand to be around you, could it?

      "What that commenter's really like" is entirely moot because they were speaking as a "m[a]n who loathe[s] women and think[s] they're all conniving thieves who just want them for their money" and the snark reflects an indictment of that attitude and - yes - of that arrogance, not of women.  It is indeed the same snark apparent in Digby's post.

      Get it now?

      •  don't find it funny. Did find it inflammatory. (0+ / 0-)

        Finding these overheated defenses of it less than amenable.

        •  You are failing to observe (0+ / 0-)

          the first rule of holes, which is that when you find yourself in one, stop digging.

          That comment is no more inflammatory than Digby's post irrespective of how you claim to find it because it is exactly the same snark.

          That you are still hypocritically trying to make a distinction between the two despite the fact that it has been more than clearly explained to you (which shouldn't have been necessary in the first place because it was pretty damn obvious) makes me suspect that you have some prior beef with karmsy that you are now passive-aggressively taking out on him by feigning to not get the joke.

          Surely you can't be that dense.
