It must be almost Pavlovian

A writer of headlines at the Strib is given the task of writing a headline for a Katherine Kersten column. Entirely unbidden, the term “slippery slope” pops into the writer’s head. It could hardly be otherwise; Katie warns an unsuspecting public of a “slippery slope” in every column.

And thus it is today in The perilous, slippery slope of gay marriage.

But Spot isn’t going to write about it. He’s going to adopt the advice of Bishop John Shelby Spong: just ignore these hate-filled creeps for the pestilential pus bags they are. They aren’t worthy of engagement.

Okay, Spot is paraphrasing, but you get the idea.

A thump of the tail to Tild.

Update: From the pictures speak louder than words, anyway, department:


A thump of the tail to David Brauer, and of course, to L.K. Hanson.
