Think of the children!

This is the letter to the editor that made me laugh until I wept this morning:
Safety goggles missing

Re: Steve Greenberg's Feb. 10 cartoon:

I have a bone to pick with this cartoon. It depicted the Democratic donkey as a sculptor with a mallet and chisel trying to decide if he should carve first "woman" or first "black" president on an unfinished statue. Greenberg didn't draw the donkey wearing safety goggles. Children will see this cartoon and perhaps try their hand at carving without goggles and lose an eye. Greenberg needs to think of eye safety before he takes up his pen and inks.

I'm going to make this guy an honorary member of my group N.O.T.S.A.F.E. - the National Organization To Save Americans From Everything.

Seriously, was that donkey wearing gloves? Steel-toed boots? Did s/he have a safety vest on (w/ reflector strips, please)? How about a tetanus shot? I simply must know: did this donkey take its vitamins this morning?? I certainly hope that the donkey is at the very least up to date on his/her check-ups. Gum disease is a silent killer.

This just goes to show that donkeys--and thus democrats--don't care one whit for safety, children, America, or, let's be frank, gingivitis. This is why I plan on supporting the grand ol' party of Me First! Gimme! Gimme! F*ck You! in the fall when I will be pleased to pledge allegiance to God, I mean, President Huckabee.

Yours most sincerely,
Miss Snicketybottom

Hee hee - is there ANY, I mean ANY possibility the letter was tongue in cheek?? Just curious...it seems so over the top.

Gee. I am more worried about an adult that thinks a kid taking chisel and mallet to hand are o.k. as long as they have goggles on. ???!!

I think I broke a rib laughing at this one.

That really sounds like my crazy aunt could have written that letter.

As I like to say to comments like this -- survival of the fittest. Maybe those kids shouldn't be chiseling to begin with!
