Air Idiot Didn’t Die; It’s Living on MSNBC’s Dime

Lead Air Idiot of MSNBC

I probably should have made the correlation between Air America and MSNBC sooner, but it wasn’t until recently that MSNBC went so loudly and proudly hard to the Left that it became obvious they had dusted off the old Air America Idiot playbook and taken it out for another whirl.

The Canuckistan feminista was not pleased with this. She pasted her angst into a Storify “timeline” which, beyond being stupid, included Yours Truly… which is never something anyone with a whit of sense would do. She went down the “UMBRAGE!” road, which everyone knows leads to Perdition… and by “perdition,” I mean “Stacy doubled down.”

Anyhoos, it seems–as least as far as I can interpret ‘Gender Studies’ gobbledygook–the shoe sellers at Stride Rite are part of the insidious heteropatriarchal cabal:
