We All Scream For Mickey Kaus Making An Ass of HImself

How big of a moron do you have to be to be a friend of Mickey Kaus? At least as moronic as Kaus himself. The slaphead midget reproduces a tearful e-missive from one of his non-imaginary friends, which reads as follows:

OK. So depressed about this election that I had to go to Baskin-Robbins and just buy a pint of ice cream and some caramel cones for [my son].
And of course, of course, I get there trying to drown my sorrows, and the flavor of the month is
"Whirl of Change."
"Whirl of Change" with a little Democratic donkey sign.
It's like peanut nougat ice cream with chunks of chocolate enrobed in more chocolate.
And I think it's also some kind of horrific multiracial metaphor.
But anyway so "Whirl of Change." Flavor of the month at Baskin Robbins.

Boo frickin' hoo! Hearing this news, Kaus can't help but prance through a puddle of his own pretend victimhood. He whines, "Baskin-Robbins is doing its part!"

Sorry to ruin the pity party, Mickey, but you can go down to your local B-R parlor and suck on the "Straight Talk Express" until you're as blue in the face as a U.S. map come November 4.

In frozen confections, as in real life, Kaus is the biggest loser.

Update: (10/24): Kaus has now added the link to the Baskin-Robbins site as "Background," without noting that he made the change 4 or 5 days after the original post. Maybe he reads this site.

The link, of course, undermines the paranoid point of Kaus's post, which was that Baskin-Robbins was shoving Barry X into the faces of poor persecuted Republicans, who can't even enjoy a cone without facing pro-Democratic propaganda. Kaus's fellow right-winger has such a persecution complex he didn't notice that the company offered flavors for both candidates, which anyone with a two-digit i.q. could have guessed. His little pal's next e-mail will claim the soda jerk carved an X into his forehead with one of those little wooden spoons.

In any event, the real outrage here is the lack of treats honoring Bob Barr (a cafe au lait fudgesicle covered in whipped cream and fruit loops), Cynthia McKinney (mint chocolate chip) and Ralph Nader (something made of hummus and mohair).
