Ross Mackenzie’s thinly veiled prejudices sparkle with the creation of such classic pearls as “Dems” and, more recently, “HM” (for homosexual marriage) as his good-ol’-boy idea of a humorous synonym for same-sex marriage [“There Likely Will Be an Amendment, But Not Yet”]. And let’s not even mention the way you demonize Michael Moore, a real patriot with enough energy, conviction, and talent to expose the common thugs who broke into the White House, guns in hand.
