I want to extend my heartfelt apologies to my conservative readers for this post. There truly is no excuse for it. I can only say, by way of explanation and not exculpation, that I did not truly understand the extent to which conservatives lack a sense of humor. Being a liberal, I assume the best about people, and while writing the offending post I thought that most of you would find it somewhat funny, or at least would shrug it off and move on. I was sadly wrong. For that, and for hurting what passes for your feelings, I am deeply sorry.
If I could have it all to do over again, I would want to graft a sense of humor onto all of you before you were subjected to my insensitive, caustic, mildly amusing wit. Unfortunately, medical science has not yet progressed to the point that liberals can donate a sense of humor to you directly. For you to develop a sense of humor organically, you would first have to have a certain amount of intelligence, ability to keep things in perspective and emotional health - but then, you wouldn't be conservatives anymore, would you?
In future, I will label humor posts with a prominent warning so that buffoons and sensitive conservative readers may steer away in time. But I repeat myself.
My deepest, sincerest apologies.
