Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

Ok, maybe this makes me an insensitive ass (as though that’s a surprise), and I don’t often disagree with things I read on CJR Daily, but I do disagree with this:

“…making fun of people driven out of their homes and huddled in a sports stadium with no running water is never acceptable… ”

Maybe making fun of people driven out of their homes makes you a dick, but everyone has a right to be a dick. I gringe when I hear the words “unacceptable.” It immediately triggers my “Oh yeah, says who?” rebellious teenager anarchist side.

I thought Johan Goldberg’s Waterworld joke was funny.

Wow, I really AM an insensitive ass.
