Not So Belle

I tend to avoid embroilment in comment fights. But Sunday was an exception.

Over at Facebook (I’m at, should you wish to befriend me) a George Stephanopoulos post had drawn some really crazed comments. The topic was the Sarah Palin / David Letterman brouhaha, and I couldn’t resist chiming in with this comment:

He was clearly referring to Palin’s unwed-mother/18 year old daughter, who apparently has become a spokesperson for abstinence and is in the public eye thanks to Palin’s actions. He apologized. Palin, instead of accepting his apology in a classy fashion, continues to distort and exploit what he said.

Nine minutes later an outraged woman named (I kid you not) Belle Blessing posted this over-the-top response:

Madelin, maybe you like perverts hanging out their tongues at your daughter or maybe you even offer her up to them. The majority of this American nation who still have their moral values in tack…don’t want the perverts giving second glance. The foundation that this country was founded on had higher moral values than letting the dirt bag over 50 population treat women and girls like sex slaves. The perverts should stick to passing toilet paper under the wall and picking up on other perverted men.

In an exercise of extreme self-control, I posted just this in response:

Dear Belle, I hope you and Sarah Palin will be very happy together. :)

Aren’t you impressed with my self-control?

Not so fast!

Twenty minutes later I just couldn’t help myself. Ms. Belle deserved a limerick, so I posted this:

There once was a woman named Belle,
Who believed I was destined for hell.
So self-righteous was she,
She condemned me with glee
And an arrogance no one could quell.

I feel much better now.

    There was a woman named Belle
    Drinking Kool-Aid from a deep well.
    The Right-wing was content
    To let her ignorance vent
    And distort the lies she wanted to sell.

  2. Laurel says:

    There once was a woman named Belle
    Whose irrational rantings did smell
    Of grammar quite lacking
    As she set out attacking
    A “minority” she’s sentenced to hell.

    I should post the flame-fest I had with a Fecebook wingbut over (at first) ACORN, which spiraled into Cap and Trade and finally birther weirdness. The wingnuts are truly off their rockers.

    It’s horrifying that the Web and the Wingnuts allow and encourage such sad and demented people to move up from scrawling in fecal finger-paint on public washroom stalls to posting comments where decent people have to read them.

    Let’s all say a prayer for Miss Blessing.
    Her sexual plight’s most distressing.
    A dozen old men
    have her tied in a pen?
    I don’t really know, I’m just guessing.

    Uneducated sheeple. Gadzooks. The only hope is that these wingnuts’ll dwindle into a spot of ash or be reclaimed by the planet that misses them. Good quelling.

    Came the Rapture, Old-Testament God
    Plucked His folk from their sin-ridden bods
    And the rest of us heathen
    Found much easier breathin’
    In a world by the self-righteous untrod

    Miz Blessing is ranting ad lib,
    What I tell you here is no fib.
    Vitriol she’s unspooling.
    Look there! She’s drooling!
    Will somebody get her a bib?
