Quote of the Day

"Forty-eight years ago in this country we could make fun of Arabs. … We could make fun of people in a general way, and certainly, 'Ahab the Arab' is a general parody. But now we can't. What has changed in America?"—Professional diarrhea-spewing blowhole Bill O'Reilly, lamenting with "Ahab the Arab" singer Ray Stevens the passing of a time in which privileged wankers could openly mock Arabs with impunity, as long as they called it a "parody."

(Hey, Billo—you're out of touch. The modern dudebro reaches for "ironic.")
