Guilt by association, Exhibit B



Yeah, Yeah. The same was true for Ralph Waldo Emerson. So?

By now most of my readers know that Mister Blue Gal is a Godless ACLU Commie** but this email sent Tuesday oughtta cinch it.

Mister Blue Gal is old school to the point that he not only opens most of his email, he also prints it out. Hard copy. For the file. A file sits on a drawer, not on a hard drive. What’s a hard drive?

(Please remember the rule re Mr. Blue Gal is Don’t Get Me Started.)

So he opened an email of which he was only one of a very large number of recipients. The sender was some Michelle Malkin boy-toy wannabe who wanted to WARN EVERYONE in his email address book:

>> ANNOUNCED JUST RECENTLY, CITGO, BEING AWARE THAT
>> SALES ARE DOWN DUE TO U.S. (CUSTOMERS NOT WANTING
>> TO BUY FROM “CHAVEZ”), HAVE STARTED TO CHANGE THE
>> NAME OF SOME OF THEIR LOCATIONS, TO: “PETRO
>> EXPRESS”
>>
>> DO NOT BUY FROM “PETRO EXPRESS”
>>
>>
>> “PETRO EXPRESS” IS ALSO 100% OWNED BY COMMUNIST
>>
>> DICTATOR “CHAVEZ” . THERE’S NOT A DAY THAT GOES BY
>>
>> WITHOUT HIM “BAD MOUTHING” THE USA! YET, HE STILL
>>
>> GETS RICH OFF US BY BEING ABLE TO SELL HIS GASOLINE
>>
>> IN THE USA. LETS SEE IF WE CAN’T CHANGE THAT!
>>
>> PLEASE KEEP THIS MEMO GOING SO EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT
>> IS HAPPENING. WITH ENOUGH PARTICIPATION, WE CAN
>>
>> MAKE A LOT OF CITGO AND PETRO GAS STATIONS DRY UP!
>>
>>
>>
>> UNLESS YOUR TANK IS BONE DRY, DON’T EVEN STOP THERE,
>>
>> AND IF YOU HAVE TO, ONLY BUY A GALLON!
>>
>>
>>
>> PASS THIS ON….I DID!
>>

Mister Blue Gal did not hesitate to reply, and inadvertently proved to me that he is more tech savvy than he lets on by hitting the “reply to all” button:


Thank you for telling me this, but for very different reasons.

You see, I go out of my way to buy from Citgo, and would not want to miss out because of confusion over the name change.

Chavez was elected President of Venezuela in several free and fair elections. The Venezuelan petro corporation has given oil free of charge to the poor in the United States.

But most important, I just have to respect a leader who has the nerve to call our fascist President a devil. Wars of aggression are contrary to international law, as is torture. Bush is a war criminal and deserves all the criticism he has brought down on himself.

**only the ACLU part is true, but still. You can go first up against the wall, honey. I’m proud of you.
