Boy, knocked off the internet for three days and look at all the fun stuff I missed!
When George W. Bush used the F word about the press and it was caught on tape during his first campaign, there was a similar amount of outrage. In that case, it was because the word was used in a derogatory context about the press. In this case it was used as emphasis. Some folks simply find the existence of the word alarming, others use it like salt, to give their language savor.
True enough. At what point did the RNC decide to make a t-shirt of it?
Yet the use of the word in this case is not a derogation directed at any person, nor is it intended, insofar as I can tell, to humiliate anybody. It is simply the breaking of a minor taboo.
Ah, I see, Bob. it's not the words itself but whether or not it is used in a derragatory manner. Let's try a little test....next time you go into a restaurant, find the most gorgeous gal there and tell her that you think she is effin beautiful. Surely, she will thank you for such kind words and consider you a man of class. If, by some small chance she doesn't, explain to her (while her hands are balling up into fists) that the world itself is not bad - it's how the words is used - and since you used it in a complimentary manner toward her, she should feel honored. Let us know how that works out, willya?
Those who find the BFD shirt in poor taste, might like one of these, a t-shirt with a real classy presidential pic - and it's even a buck cheaper: ]http://www.cafepress.com/+onefingered_victory_salute_black_tshirt,39798931
Interesting shirt. How much is the RNC charging for it? Oh, they are not selling it or printing it? Then what's your point?????
Biden made a slip of the tongue and conservatives are shocked and appalled, like their leaders never made a slip-up.
Once again, avoiding the point. His slip of the tongue is no big deal. The DNC putting it on 25000 shirts is. I know they need money but this one even beats Clinton's renting out the Lincoln bedroom.
Actually, I am caring less about it. Tens of thousands of Democrats will be out there, showing their lack of class, which will be noted. There's always a silver lining
