Listen. I get it. You’re a nerd/geek. That means you like amassing knowledge, you like books, you maybe play a video game or two, you have some niche pop culture interests, you’re part of a couple or more fandoms. I get that.
I also get that you’re proud of the stuff you like. It’s great stuff!…
Ahh, much like the type of nerd that thinks they’re so socially inept and alone they need to always tell their friends about it.
“I don’t know what’s in Rush Limbaugh’s heart so I’m not going to comment on the sincerity of his apology. What I can comment on is the fact that all decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse. And, you know, the reason I called Ms. Fluke is because I thought about Malia and Sasha. And one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about - even ones I may not agree with them on. I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens. And I wanted Sandra to know that I thought her parents should be proud of her.”—
