In response to TMW’s post here, I couldn’t help but notice that a commenter posted to the effect of the title of this post, which is to say that he touted the old “if you ain’t doin’ nothing illegal, then you ain’ got nothin’ to fear” line, of which readers will know that I’m woefully tired.
LOL.Well I guess your right to jack cars and drive them around with impunity afterward just went up the same hole your right to do drugs did. Along with your right to raise your kids as white supremists or religious whack jobs. I love Mom and apple pie but some of the American libertarians need to be fired out of a cannon.Believe it or not most cops have better things to do than hassle house-husbands.
Tam’s response was brilliant, biting, and snarky, as is her unquestioned talent:
Only a simpleton with a room temperature IQ and breath that whiffs of Uncle Sam’s scrote sweat would be unable to imagine any way that this could be misused to mess up their own life.I’m always amazed that people like you can find the “on” switch on the computer, but I shouldn’t be, since you obviously know how to work a voting machine.
My response, which was quite uncharacteristically laconic, I think, was even better. To the statement “believe it or not, most cops have better things to do than hassle house husbands” I simply replied:
*By the way, the idea has since been scrapped, what with the publicity of the thing and all. They probably would have gone ahead with it if they’d been able to keep it a secret, but they weren’t.
