It’s amazing to me how much trouble I can get myself into just by commenting on a blog on my hometown newspaper, the Tallahassee Democrat. Wait…hang on. I seem to have misplaced my membership card in the American Communist Party. Okay, whew. There it was in my wallet, between my driver’s license and my voter registration card. For those of you who don’t really know me, let me take all the fun out of this and say: I’m kidding. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the Communist Party, Mr. McCarthy.
As a known liberal…oh wait. I have to go look for my ID card. Okay, can’t find it…you will just have to take my word for it.
On the Democrat there is a lively and outraged discussion going on about the fact that Bill Ayers is about to come speak at Florida State University. Protest! , they urge! Don’t give FSU any money! I must admit that I enjoy seeing people on the “other side” reduced to such tactics. It is so totally comforting to see these people be in the minority.
So today, one of the wacko conspiracy theorist people (which is about all that’s left on the TD) said that I apparently must harbor secret sympathies with Bill Ayers. Maybe that’s because I said it was okay with me if he spoke at FSU. I guess he missed the part where I said I agree that Ayers was a terrorist, that he is unrepentant and in denial, and that I think he is a despicable person.
Well, you know how it is. Once a liberal, always a liberal. Meanwhile, if you find my Liberal ID card, would you please mail it back to me? Otherwise, I’ll have to sign up all over again.
