So on last night’s show, we discussed the Ground Zero mosque’s Twitter account.
After releasing some mildly sarcastic tweets, the mosque developers announced they were dumping “the interns” on the account, and bringing in “a new team.”
Didn’t know you needed “a team” to write “just sayin!”
Anyway, here’s some background. Last Tuesday, after my gay bar proposal went public, I called the mosque to talk to them about it. I called everyone from the developers to their PR consultant Oz Sultan.
So I tweeted them (I think they had three followers). I got a curt response, saying I wasn’t respecting their sensibilities.
And then the fun began. Their tweets started including stale catch phrases like “just sayin” and “fail.” It read like a closed-captioned “Head of the Class” rerun. There was even a nod to Olbermann – to get a lefty seal of approval.
But then Tweetie made jokes about the Amish and a Jewish paper… and was removed.
And there you have a perfect example of the mosque’s “communication” outreach. And by pristine, I mean poopy. I only tweeted them because they wouldn’t respond elsewhere. And then when the tweeter responded, he got yanked.
This is not building bridges. Or building dialogue. It’s not even a bridge of dialogue. It’s more a bidet of baloney.
So, as host of Red Eye, I’m officially offering the mosque tweeter a job at my gay bar. Not sure what that job will be yet – but you can bet the uniform will involve some sort of mesh.
Cuz it’s holy.
Totally related: check out how Norah O’Donnell, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe characterizes anyone who opposes the mosque.
Somebody’s got to say that, “We’re not going to act like the people who stole freedom from Americans, the people who attacked America and killed 3,000 people.”
So as I understand it – because I think it’s rude to build a mosque near Ground Zero, I’m just like the dude who left a crater downtown.
If she wasn’t so hot, I’d be pissed.
Meanwhile, Captain Angrypants Nancy Pelosi says she wants to investigate those who are against the building of the mosque.
How funny is it she’d rather look at that “funding,” rather than the funding behind the mosque. I guess, in Pelosi’s pinball eyes, the real bad guy is the average American who finds the mosque distasteful.
But hey, with the left: it’s never them, it’s always us.
Anyway, let her investigate me. All she’s going to find are some unicorn stencils, a bag of edible glitter and an original pressing of “I Am What I Am,” by Gloria Gaynor.
And if you disagree with me, you’re a racist homophobe who won’t buy me a banana daiquiri.
