As I do every weekday morning, I start my day by revving up my funnybone and catching up on the latest political antics by watching The Stephanie Miller Show on Current TV. Today one of the main topics was -- surprise!-- common sense gun safety. Callers called, Steph and the Mooks responded, and listeners laughed and cried. Cried? you ask, why would they cry?

Okay, maybe no crying, but lots of banging of heads on nearby walls. Here's why: One caller, a rather inarticulate gun "enthusiast," openly displayed his paranoia and hatred of President Obama. Why such hatred of Obama? you ask. The answer lies somewhere in this rather bizarre exchange with Stephanie. Here's how it unfolded, slightly paraphrased:

Caller:

Obama's gonna take our guns away because he's a liar!

Steph:

What exactly has he lied about?

*Crickets*

Steph:

Why is he a liar?

Caller:

He's a liar because he uses telegrams!

Steph:

(pause) Telegrams...?

Caller:

Yeah! Er, I mean tele... tele...

Steph:

(dawning) Ohhh, you mean teleprompters?

Click.

If President Obama is concerned about rubbing people like this the wrong way by banning assault weapons, he needn't worry (and callers like this only reinforce the argument against them). He couldn't begin to please or assuage morons like Mr. Telesomething if he wanted to. So please, stop wanting to.

    The Pesky English language keeps getting in the way of people's God-Given right to hate Obama, so soon the Rabid will begin screaming at their clenched hands.
