That's right. Faced with the undeniable reality that "Failin Palin" – despite her abhorrent positions and behavior – continues to garner a level of unrivaled demand and attention, Dkos diarist 8ackgr0und N015e was moved to accuse Sarah Palin with – wait for it – being crazy.
Of course, the diarist did use the word "may" to qualify said crazy claim, and didn't actually come out and make an actual accusation. Sorry, that qualified dog don't hunt. Unless "may be crazy" is a new-fangled way to compliment someone on their exquisite, over-priced wardrobe or choice in abstinence prevention techniques (as in, "comparing teen sex and bestiality is fucking crazy brilliant"). I mean, sorry, but you can't use the word crazy without the owner of said brain having a legitimate, mental illness that has been diagnosed by a professional. That's just common sense.
Here's the funny part: where did the diarist decide to drop this turd of a word? At a site in which one of the recommended diaries right now is someone asking for professional help for a mental illness.
Actually, I'm having a hard time seeing the wisdom in the diarist's use of the word crazy to describe anyone, given it's a public display of indecency (given the word cheapens those who have real mental illnesses and has come to be recognized as one of most defamatory words those 10% of Americans with mental illnesses can ever encounter). Though it probably makes more sense if you look at it from the diarist's perspective. Unfortunately, I can't get my head that far up my own ass to understand why the diarist thinks such usage is acceptable, particularly in a diary decrying the indecency of another, specifically Sarah Palin.
The diarist may be insensitive, but he/she is no dummy. The diarist is making serious bank with this act. Calling out easy targets and showing up on the rec. list throwing around words like "pussy" and "crazy." Andrew Dice Clay and Louis C.K. should track the diarist and take notes. Here's how it works: the diarist spews witty venom and gets recommendations from the chuckling masses, who forget the damage such language causes many in our community.
Think I'm making it up? Think I'm hitting below the belt with wild slander and uber-sensitivity?
Let me ask you a question: have you ever asked someone on here with a mental illness how they respond when they see the word crazy?
I'll tell you a secret: it feels like being synaptically fleeced in blog format.
Go on. Seriously. Ask.
