In Which I Forgive @TheRealRoseanne Her Unrelenting Ignorance

by Smitty

As the son of a son of a sailor, I gave a decade active, and a decade more in the reserves, to my country. Actually more, but I’ll keep it simple. Grew up on the edge of foodstamps; moved all over the West Coast; didn’t really get to know my father until I was 16, and he was on his final shore tour. And I’m fortunate. I at least got to know my dad, and no one in the family has left body parts in some odd corner of the planet.

Also, I don’t do guilt. I rejoice in your exercise of free speech. Quite a blessing, isn’t it?

I’d just like you to know, Roseanne, as you toss off random bits of condescension on Twitter, that far nobler folk than you are out there ensuring that Americans can ply a porcine pie-hole with prosciuotto. In fact, it’s a point of honor to defend the liberty of Americans to maximize their God-given talents, or to be useless sacks of rancid crap.

May you one day mature to the point of grasping this.

Forgiving you in liberty, Roseanne,

    Very well put.

  • James

    Yes we Vets can forgive buttheads, but we don’t have to like them!

  • jlwellfonder

    Well said Smitty, my God she’s an idiot…

  • Mike F.

    By her reasoning, Barack and Michelle are on the dole, Harry Reid is on the dole ,etc.  But then, logical consistency has never been her strong suit.

  • PoliticalClownParade

    Giving her the quarter turn of the knife graciously my little squid friend.  Well played.  Well played, indeed.

  • rosalie

    I’m afraid those eloquent words are wasted on someone like her. 

  • Denverwindowwashing

    There is beauty, as well as sadness in good folks, watching someone hang themselves, if that someone is R.Barr.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    You are more gracious than I would be smitty.  When a fat old cow gives me that, I would just gore her.  

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    They are wasted on Barr, but Smitty is giving them to us (where they are not wasted).  

    I bet Tom Arnold gets it.  

  • smitty

    Gore? Al Gore? EBL, that’d be a full-on war crime.

  • Red

    Are we talking Saint Albert of Gore or Crazed Sex Poodle Gore?

  • Red

    Carol! ::HUGSandHighFives::

  • Red

    Yeah but that ain’t saying much.

  • Red

    Smitty you must be bored to be giving a pot-smoking nut farmer the time of day. 😉

  • richard mcenroe

    The only place anyone should have to listen to Roseanne is in the frozen food aisle at WalMart, and then only because she’s blocking the way to the port roast.

  • richard mcenroe

     Seriously, they talk about “people of WalMart”?  Roseanne has a “person of WalMart” in her soul.

  • Red

    That would be a medal-worthy service to God and country.

  • Red

    She is TPOW’s patron saint, “Our Lady of Perpetual Rollback”.

  • McGehee

    Roseanne is scum.

    Here where I live there’s a guy, whom I hope succeeds in his current attempt to become my state legislator, that I had a bad run-in with about 10, 12 years ago, leaving me wanting to hear nothing good about him from anybody.

    Then his son was killed in the Sandbox and I realized the man I’d been pissing all over had sent his son to war to protect my right to piss all over him here at home.

    That stopped immediately.

    Roseanne is ungrateful scum.

  • Evilbloggerlady

    I would engage the “Gore” if the issue was Barr’s massive flatulence affecting the climate.  

    Which in Barr’s case may be true.  

  • Evilbloggerlady

    True.  Anyone willing to go where Tom Arnold went is a a mad man.  

  • Evilbloggerlady

    Did Rachel Corrie get crushed by Barr’s big fat ass?  Turning Rachel into St. Pancake of the Palestinians?

  • Red

    It’s coming out of both ends (all that hot air) so I say take your best shot.

  • Red

    No, sadly, Rachel lost a game of chicken with an Israeli bulldozer. 

  • teresakoch

    Bravo!  “ply a porcine pie-hole with prosciutto” – I love it….

  • RichFader

    You know, America is a wonderful country. Where else can a comedian make a living despite not having said a single funny thing in fifteen years?

  • SDN

    I follow Neal Boortz on Twitter, and last night he compared Roseanne to a grizzly.

    I immediately informed him that was a gross libel on grizzlies.

  • Bob Belvedere

    That air just ain’t hot.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Another example of the dangers of doing drugs.

  • Bob Belvedere

    How can you tell the difference between the two???

  • Bob Belvedere

    Ask Kathy Griffin.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Sarah Palin is a mama grizzly, besides!

  • smitty

    Come for the alliteration, stay for the assonance: “sacks of rancid crap”. See, I learned me something in school. :-)

  • Red

    You took the words right outta my brain Bob.

  • Red

    “That air just ain’t hot.”

    Thanks Bob ::gag::

  • Red


  • Red

    Smitty was the inspiration for ‘V’.

  • Red

    There you go showing off again with that big brain of yours. 😉
