Caught this picture as part of a bittersweet 24-picture slide show called “Teabonics” from the N.Y. Daily News.
Now, if you’re a conservative, you’ll probably shrug it off as another attack from the liberal media (after all, you’ll probably never see these on FOX News, although they are just as liberal as any other news media … and by “liberal” I mean, they’ll do anything for ratings so they can charge more for commercials, so they can pay their shareholders more … oh, wait … shareholders … isn’t that a conservative term? I get so confused at labels).
If you’re a liberal, you’ll probably say this just shows all the ignorant rednecks who should stop dating their sister (by the way, liberals … ignorant southern incest jokes are a little old and trite. Stop being lazy and come up with new stereotypes for southern whites, OK?).
As someone who tries to straddle in the middle (to which both sides may accuse me of just being lazy), let me just say a couple things:
- If you’re going to put yourself out there, make sure you put your best foot forward. Look up the term “edit.” I realize that when you write on poster board, the red squiggly line won’t appear to help you, so you must be EXTRA careful. It’s the little things that communicate the most.
- I’m sure you poster creators are great people; nice hard-working Americans with intelligent opinions once we get past the pithy poster-board philosophy. But since few people will take the time to do that, we’re just left with your poster board. And that’s fine, too; just make sure you’re making the right impression.
If this post offends you, feel free to express yourself in the comments. Also, feel free to post links to “liberal” gaffes, too. I’m sure they are out there.
