The Minnesota DFL has an uncanny power for pissing me off, even when I'm inclined to agree or sympathize with it. At Tuesday night's precinct caucus, some white-haired washed-up asshat local politician decided to kick things off with a meandering Bush-is-the-devil-who-caused-the-bus-strike speech, which was kind of misplaced, as it seemed like preaching to the choir, but whatever. Then he said, "I heard George Bush is the most well-read man from Texas! Let's send him back there to impress everyone!" Then he sat down, realized he'd skipped his non-joke's punchline, stood again, and said, "See, he's read ONE BOOK!"

I guess hate speech against Texans is less equal than other hate speech, or something.
