For Tattoo Jim

On Martin Luther King Day ask why we have a public holiday named after a Vietcong-supporting radical who— in a 1967 speech —compared U.S. forces in Vietnam to Nazis. (True, by the way.) That ought to pull your liberal friend up short. If he recovers his wits and says MLK was right about Vietnam, tell him to talk to some Boat People.
In the meantime, you’ll celebrate Lee-Jackson Day, because Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were officers and gentlemen.

Notice that I didn't post a motherfucking thing about MLK on Knuckledraggin'? But really, did you expect me to?
