Dan Savage on Colbert

Thanks for the tip from Destro...

Colbert: The black man's keeping you down

Savage: A few black men have kept me down in the past

Dead. Wrong. So wrong.


UPDATE: Yes, yes, I know Savage was making a joke about sex. I was laughing along. I didn't mean he was literally wrong. I've done this before. Is it really that rare to use "dead wrong" ironically? Is this, like, only a hip-hop/Biggie Smalls thing?  Between this and the Maureen Dowd thing, I think I need to try being appallingly earnest for at least a week. But then...I'd have nothing to say...
