People always say that inbred rednecks are the dumbest people on Earth.
I think the leftists are trying to one-up 'em! And quite successfully.
"Hey, hold my double-chai green tea vegan soy latte crappuccino and watch this!"
So much so that sometimes you gotta wonder if it's all a joke. Like;
"Okay, watch this .... I'm gonna propose we outlaw calling a "manhole cover" a "manhole cover" and I'll bet ya it passes."
"Naw, there's no way they'll buy it. Now you're just getting greedy."
"I bet ya one dollar"
"Told ya they'd buy it. Where's my buck?"
It's like a Mel Brooks comedy. "Harumph!"
