Leave George alone

Accordion Guy posted this photo up, and I’m sharing it for two reasons.

First, it’s a clever and funny way of taking the piss out of the bat-shazbot crazy nutters protesting at Obama’s healthcare town halls. Second, the placard to the far right really ticks me off. It says:

STOP: YOU’RE STARTING TO SCARE GEORGE ORWELL

No, Obama is not scaring George Orwell, for the notable reason that Orwell is dead and well beyond scaring. Say nothing of the fact that public health insurance is conspicuously absent from Orwell’s grim vision of totalitarianism in 1984.

So, random dumbass, leave George alone. And yes, I have proclaimed myself defender of Orwell’s legacy. Consider yourselves warned, you loose-lipped, dim-witted appropriators.

    Perhaps this is a particularly long sign and we have mistakenly interpreted it without reading the whole thing. I might say:

    STOP OBAMA
    YOU’RE STAR IS TOO BRIGHT TO TRAVEL
    TO SCARBOROUGH. IT A CITY THAT
    GEORGE ORSON WELLES AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS

    Though she still is a random dumbass for using “you’re” instead of “your.”
