Too Stupid to Be True?

We get some interesting letters here at J$P. Many of them are too vulgar to reprint without large-type language disclaimers. Others are more complimentary. But there are some that seem to come from that middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition...

We don't know what to make of this. It's all about our posting of the O'Reilly radio clip (the one that has 71,645 views on youtube...so far). We kind of hope the following isn't real, that it's someone playing provocateur. Because it would be disheartening to believe that there are supposedly sentient beings who operate on this level of logic. What follows is the complete email exchange. You be the judge...

Your video on Bill O'Reilly is a fraud.
You should remove it... Liar.

Huh? --J$

The Bill O'Reilly "voice" where he is yelling about the dems and republicans, it's a fraud. You should remove it...

Right, it's really Rich Little. Even the full-hour podcast sitting on the foxnews.com site that the excerpt was taken from is Rich Little. Thank you for your insightful comment. --J$

Then why is the heading, "O'Reilly erupts against talk radio, calls Barney Frank a 'fat toad'"
Says nothing about Rich Little...
You presented this with malicious intent.
The people that responded to this on your blog, don't seem to think this Rich Little.
And yes my comment was insightful, your post wasn't though, was it?

Oh man, do I have to spell it out for you? "It's really Rich Little" = sarcasm. Sarcasm for an argument so brainless that it deserves nothing more in response. Of course it says nothing about Rich Little. Of course nobody seems to think it's Rich Little. BECAUSE IT ISN'T RICH LITTLE. "Sarcasm", remember?

I'm surprised that I have to explain this. Thank you for giving me the most stupefyingly dense series of emails I've received in years. It's definitely going into the archives for my upcoming post on idiotic emails.

PS: Why don't you write to O'Reilly to expose this "malicious fraud" you've uncovered? Of course that would mean you'd have to explain to him how the same audio also sits on billoreilly.com. Oh wait, maybe O'Reilly's in on the 'malicious fraud' too! I guess I'd better label this part too: SARCASM! --J$

OK, I'm convinced nobody can be this stupid. This is a put-on. Is this you, Jocko? It sounds like something you might pull. You had me going there for a bit! Nice job!! --J$

Is this for real, or a put-on? Anybody want to fess up?

So Jocko must have worked at Wayne County also, eh? Is he a biased right-wing Republican who can't moderate like you? Just joking, J$.

He's a great guy (he tells me he wasn't behind this possible put-on).

Well Johnny, if Kim is for real. She must hail from White Plains.

Puck, that is priceless!
I'm surprised to see that they had the sense to get out of the car in time.
