On profanity

To add to AB's post on profanity, I am always amazed by people who are offended by the occasional f-bomb.

First, seriously, if online profanity is the biggest of your concerns, you are not paying enough attention. For example, Joe Lieberman pisses in the Dems' cereal, and they let him keep his god-damned committee chair! What else can you call the Dems but fucking pussies?

Second, as AB pointed out much more eloquently, sometimes the situation is so beyond the pale that you just have to scream out a profanity. For instance, if you are a decent human being looking objectively at the record of that fuck-shit-douchebag Joe Lieberman, you would be hard-pressed to find a single accurate description of him that doesn't involve fuck, shit or douchebag.

Third, by its very nature, the blogosphere is much more profanity-friendly. So, yes, fuck Joe Lieberman.

Even though Carlin was talking about TV, I think it would also apply here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_Nrp7cj_tM
