10 Reasons [Treacher's] Not Voting for You, Mr. George W. Bush

From the warped mind of Jim Treacher, his list of 10 reasons not to vote for Bush. It begins with:

10. Do you really think it's a good idea to be Hitler, George? Hitler killed millions of people and his approval ratings are for @#$%. Why can't you be somebody who people like? Regis, maybe, or the Prophet Mohammed. Anybody but Hitler! Being Hitler = BAD IDEA.

9. Two words: You. Are. Dumb.

The reader comments turned into an impromptu social experiment. Some of them are pretty funny, but others are a bit Twilight Zonish. My comments on his readers' comments are:

For the sarcasm-impaired, yes, it's a joke.

For the anti-Bushites, yes, it's a joke at your expense.

For the pro-Bushites, I know we're used to Bush getting unfairly slammed and it is outrageous, but some of us need to chill out a bit and keep the receiver open to other signals, like that big wave-form hitting you that says "I'm making fun of anti-Bushites, not really calling Bush Hitler."

Treacher's list is funny. The reader comments on it are a bit of an education.
