The Right Is Vizzini

It occurred to me that conservatives are becoming increasingly Vizzini-like these days.  Consider:

1.  They are easily agitated and are able to whip themselves into a tizzy fairly easily.  In fact, this may be their default personality setting, broken up only occasionally by a fiendish cackle.

2.  The appropriate response to most of what they say is, “You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.”  I mean, let’s just list a few words that have lost all meaning with the right’s use of them:  fiscal responsibility, socialism, fascism, torture…need I go on?

3.  They remain unprepared for the tactics, abilities, and relentlessness of the black man—er, man in black.

4.  They seem to get uglier and meaner as the plot advances, culminating in a kind of weird, unearned smugness about how things will turn out for them.

5.  My guess is, it will turn out about as well for them as it did for Vizzini.




* BTW, if you aren’t really sure what I’m referring to in this post, you are a social deviant and have no business being a part of polite society.
