President Bush and Karl Rove have driven better men than Bob Somerby to the brink of insanity and stark raving shrillness. It has been well documented that The facts were driven shrill and even objective reality is shrill and unbalanced.
I fear that Bob’s constant exposure to Bush and Rove has driven him unshrill, an unholy condition worse than the fate of the undead. I ask Seeing the Forest readers to join hands in shrillness and offer a prayer from the Krugmanomicon for Bob’s speedy recovery:
Hige Sceal þe Heardra, Heorte þe Cenre, Mod Sceal þe Mare þe Ure Maegen Lytlað!
Aaaiii! Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Keith Olbermann R’lyeh wagn’nagl fhtagn! Aaaiii!!! Yog-Sothoth! Shrub-Niggurath!! The Black Goat with a Thousand Young Who Hates America Is Here!!!!!!!
aaiii! Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Eric Umansky R’lyeh wagn’nagl fhtagn! Aaaiii!!! Yog-Sothoth! Yog-Sothoth!! YOG-SOTHOTH IS HERE!!!!!!!
Illegal war? Bah! Why talk about that now? Look, a bird! Aaaaiiii! Aaaaiiii! N’ppeakkeeth hynd c’rtainnn! Powell sssh’rt timm’rr! Aaaaiiiiii!!!!
I am confident that the prayers of Seeing the Forest readers will restore Bob to his customary state of holy untranquil shrillness.
