[Yeah, it's a lame title. Tough.]
Jkrank requests (in email) that I comment upon Amnesty International. I told him I didn't have anything to say, but that was before I saw Bill "Spells His Name Wrong" Schulz's post at the HuffPo.
I have been meaning to poke fun at the Huffers, but, really, that gives whole new meaning to "shooting fish in a barrel". More like using a thermonuclear device on a Filet-O-Fish. Also, I have no idea who half those people are, and that takes some of the fun out of it.
I know who Schulz is, though; he's the Executive Director of Amnesty International USA. See, says so right there. Doesn't say anything else, so I'm guessing he must've sprung full-grown from the head of Kofi Annan sometime in the recent past.
And he's still defending his stupid Gitmo Equals Gulag assertion:
I would have thought it would have been physically impossible for an executive of a major NGO to be as tone deaf as this:
In other words, We shot our credibility to shit, but it's OK 'cause it got us on TV. T! V! I can't spell it out more clearly than that, people!
So if, for example, I were to say that Amnesty International was actually a front organization for a shadowy group who are working on an army of Hitler clones -- and that furthermore the leadership of AI all drive their SUVs to the non-union market to pick up a load of whale filets and Palestinian children to take to their wild parties at the Neverland Ranch (and I mean that in a purely symbolic, not literal, way) -- then it would be OK as long as I was able to spark a debate on whether words mean things anymore.
So, when will Fox News be calling me?
