Rand, your entire piece creates a gigantic straw man about "liberals" and then undertakes to demolish the straw man you created. Which makes your piece very very funny but probably not in the sense you intended.

You really need to work on the reading comprehension thing.

This liberal found nothing offensive, then again I'm not "liberal" (nor US) ^_^

Bill what gigantic straw man was supposedly created? Asking since I didn't see it (doesn't mean it can't be there).
