What Would Sarah Silverman Do?



It's no secret that people in San Diego tend to be very, very stupid*, and part of the reason is that they're reading the San Diego Union-Tribune, upon whose editorial board sits Ruben Navarrette Jr., a dependably Republican apologist's apologist.

Ruben has really outdone himself with his bizarre, attack-the-attackers take at CNN.com on all this hubbub going on lately with all those megapopular racist conservative radio hosts. Did you read it? This has got to be one of the most peculiar op-eds I've read in a while. So... let me get this straight, Ruben: when people criticize Bill O'Reilly for using the word wetback, they're just as bad as he is because they're repeating the word by quoting him?

Wait, let me try:

Wetback.

Nope, it's still worse when Bill O'Reilly says it.

*I should know because I lived there for over 15 years, and I was totally way stupider then.

My uncle said one the best days of his life was taking early retirement from the Union-Tribune.

We may be stupid enough to re-elect Duke Cunningham, but at least we have carne asada burritos and don't need to scrape ice off our windshields.

Not to mention fish tacos.

And a public thoroughfare named after Ted Williams.

(Never lived there; just visited friends and checked out UCSD as a possible grad school.)

and the famous explore that takes on the city name as part of her nome de plume "Carmen" whom also has a swell show where she may or may not have fruit on a hat, which i think condi should certainly try to add some re-centering to the matching armchair shot, as the noted architect noted "Symmetry is Death!"
