X-Post: Donald Douglas - Reading Comprehension - November 25, 2011 Edition

Because sometimes, the urge to attack the individuals and groups one disagrees with and to portray them as eternally and unfailingly "eeeeevil" overwhelms the ability to pay enough attention to understand what the words and phrases mean, and actually get the story right.

The article says
"'Those in a more modest income situation are the people who are going to the Wal-Marts and the Best Buys and the Targets at 8, 9, 10, 11 p.m. with little kids in tow because they can’t afford a baby sitter,” said Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultant firm. “It’s a very unpleasant shopping experience, frankly, for a lot of people.'"
Donald Douglas reads the passage above -- quotes it on his blog -- and says:
"Right. Kids are unpleasant. Can't afford a babysitter. Give me a break."
Kids are unpleasant? Words fail the man.


Added: Moar phunneeeer: Check Donald's 5:30 PM post, about his own 2:00 AM Wal-Mart shopping experience. Check the pictures he posted...
Anyone see those little kids in tow, just like the guy in the NYT article said (and that our erstwhile nemesis pshawwed as though it was ridiculous commie nihilist nonsense)? One has to wonder whether Donald bothers to read his own blog, sometimes...
Maybe it was a pleasant experience for all concerned and maybe it wasn't, but those are young kids out at the stores at 2:00 AM on Black Friday morning, rather than home with babysitters... ...which is just what the nice man quoted in the New York Times said...

His ranting is self-refuting...
