      in 35 years, we've found no cure for it and damned few countermoves:

      There’s a saying that, “it’s a waste of time trying to explain yourself to people who are determined to misunderstand you.” That’s true. But when those people are trying to smear you to the general public, to see to it that you are widely regarded as a racist (or a woman hater or homophobe or witch or whatever) you have little choice but to spend a lot of time and energy trying to at least make sure you have some statements floating around asserting that you aren’t a racist witch.
      from the Liberal Puritans article

      See John Kerry 2004, for a mainstream version of this, or for a more kooky version, the way people on this site depicted me as having a crush on Vladimir Putin b/c I didn't want a war with Syria.

      I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson
