Let the Funny Wash Over You

Exador sent me a link to a story which, in itself, is not funny.  However, it made me laugh so hard I have to share it with you.

Now, in order to get to the funny, you’re going to have to set aside the immediate urge to say “Bullshit, what about…” every five seconds.  Just roll with Tammy Bruce’s nonsense until you get to the punchline at the end.

Okay, fine.  Why should you have to wade through any bullshit at FoxNews?  I’ll give it to you.

Setup:

It’s been apparent for years that the American feminist establishment is nothing more than a shill for the shallow leftists in the Democrat party, wrapping themselves in the feminist label for convenience. Groups like NOW and Eleanor Smeal’s Feminist Majority, also amazingly silent in the past five years about Islamic terrorism and violence against women, use women’s issues as nothing more than slogans and chants in their efforts to gain political power.

[…]

This wholesale abandonment of women by the American so-called feminist leadership on an issue that transcends party politics perfectly illustrates how vapid, and even malevolent, they have become. Where is Eleanor Smeal? Gloria Steinem? Kim Gandy of NOW has proven where she is — with the rest of her cohorts hiding behind the NOW couch, save she would be required to take a position that might “offend” Islamists.

Punchline:

Tammy Bruce is an author, nationally syndicated radio talk show host and FOX News political contributor. Her books include “The New Thought Police,” “The Death of Right and Wrong,” and “The New American Revolution.” Bruce was the president of the Los Angeles chapter of NOW from 1990-1996 and served on the National NOW Board of Directors.

Yep, it’s the old “Let’s use real issues of real women suffering in order to continue our in-house political battles” trick.  As far as they go, as an art form, this one seems particularly nicely done.  And funny.
