The Other Communists for Kerry

The hat tip goes to Dean's World for spotting the line in the Washington Post's story, 200,000 in NY Protest Bush. It's buried down in the center:

And Kerry might prefer to eschew the four-member "Communists for Kerry" contingent, whose placards advocated a "France First!" foreign policy.
These are the good communists for Kerry. I know, that sounds like an oxymoron, but if you doubt my taste in satire, follow the link and tell me you don't have an urge to visit the State Store. Read the whole site. Weep with ecstacy at the power of the revolution! Denounce your friends! Join a revolution!


They make an interesting contrast to the other Communists who insist they are not for Kerry (they're just against Bush). I mentioned the really pink pinkos and their interesting and conflicting statements below in The Big Lie: Still Going!

There is no such thing as a "good Commie." There are only less dangerous ones. The Communists for Kerry are good, but only because they really aren't communists. They're satirists. Understand, Washington Post?

Let me make it simple:

Satire = Good.
Communism = Bad.
Reactionary chain dog of the bourgeoisie Ann Coulter=very very good looking.

Okay, okay, I admit Washington Post is right about one thing: Kerry probably won't like these guys. But these guys don't like Kerry either, and WaPo seems to have missed that... dare I say it? nuance.

Can you say "subversion?" (I knew you could.)

So much for sophisticated elites.

Glad you got a chuckle.

I'm actually thinking about doing a but more on the WaPo article if I can squeeze out some time. It's practically parody in itself.
