We all get them: stupid email forwards. Misguided (or just plain idiotic) friends, relatives and coworkers forward us stuff that promises to be “hilarious” or “amazing,” when it’s actually so damn stupid, you want to reach through the computer and strangle them for sending it to you. These emails belong in the Stupid Email Hall of Fame. This one came from a reader, who received it from a conservative Canadian friend:
Subject: Who’s the stupid president? (Man, I’m really missing “Dubya” with his Texas drawl ‘plain-speak’ and his devotion to America as a special place, ignoring those pukes that think otherwise, E.G; Islamist enemy, Old Europe & Democrats! BL)
When going through these, don’t forget Obama’s sickening and so Democrat ‘Apology Tour’ through Europe this past Spring! NO way in hell would Pres. Bush nor any Republican for that matter, run-down and literally ‘apologize’ for America’s greatness, leadership and generosity in blood and money toward strangers in peril, acts of kindness unparalleled in human history for a ‘super-power’, and that far outweigh any/all of our ‘mistakes’.
