I've been fake-quoted in The Onion.

Wow, and I just saw you mentioned in a front page story on Politico. Big day for you!

Awesome. I feel like I'm back in show and tell. The child pundits have this weakness: they truly can have no real, inner sense of the link between money and work. They necessarily have spent a small fraction of their lives working for money. Only by working over long years do you truly know that time is money, that you are trading time for money. That's why Klein and his cohort have such a cavalier attitude toward other people's money, and can so easily and carelessly assert that it is "moral" for people to give up their hard earned money to finance someone else's healthcare, house, granite countertops, or whatever else. The moral posturing and pontification of the very young should not be taken too seriously.

First Colbert and now The Onion? Sweet!

What's next? Strongbad shout out? SNL skit mention? Maybe a cameo in the next Wes Anderson move? Has this past year been a GD roller coaster or what?

Rock on E!

Hey Truck1, I think your automatic troll-postinator is broken. Might want to go out back and kick it or something.

" The moral posturing and pontification of the very young should not be taken too seriously."


yes,
absolutely.
consider them as a grain of salt.

after all,
what could a young person possibly know of "life?"
they havent suffered enough.
"experienced enough."
"lived enough." "toiled enough."

follow the old ways.
they are best.

Ha! When I was in the 6th grade, a friend and I protested outside a hospital that was denying a low-income leukemia patient a bone-marrow transplant. No wonder my Republican parents were annoyed at me. I should have guessed that leukemia veered to the right. It's so obvious now!

@slag: "When I was in the 6th grade, a friend and I protested outside a hospital that was denying a low-income leukemia patient a bone-marrow transplant. No wonder my Republican parents were annoyed at me"

Did they stop you?

Congratulations! The best part of the story, though, is that leukemia is worried that teaming up with Republicans will hurt its public image :)

truck1, don't you have a lawn to be guarding, or perhaps Matlock to be watching?

@Kevin_Willis
"Did they stop you?"

They didn't know until after the fact. So, no.

Man, you've hit the big time.

Seriously, though, the fake quote is recognition that you have been one of the preeminent commentators relative to the year long drama of the health insurance/care reform effort.

Congratulations.

So awesome! Congratulations! That's an awesome fake quote too, it sounds like something you might actually say... I mean in terms of syntax, not content.
