You're still deplorable Bob, just because something becomes mainstream doesn't change what it is. Being a bigot will never be cool.

Bigot, "a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions."

Of course you tolerate everyone and everything, right?

You got me, I'm intolerant of bigotry! Never thought a lot of you but I couldn't put my finger on it, it makes sense now.

I always thought it was an odd stance to take the moral high ground. "I'm super tolerant, but not of you because you're intolerant of ___________"

George Carlin had the best line about political correctness. I've used it a few times. “Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people’s language with strict codes and rigid rules. I’m not sure that’s the way to fight discrimination. I’m not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.”

On my front, if you hate me because I'm part towel head, or part kraut, or part square head, or part whatever, good for you! Everyone needs something.

I'm boatless.
