See his crumby logic

(Updated Mar. 22, 2007) Why does Ken Avidor the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist hate toast so much? It's currently the central theme of his anti-toast, "gadgetsnacken" terror campaign, and frankly he's making even less sense than he usually doesn't make.

Pay close attention, now.

What Avidor keeps doing is linking Rep. Slappy Olson, Congresswoman Smoochy Bachmann, and even the Discovery Institute to toast, and using that to argue that only Resmuglicans like toast--and therefore toast is Resmuglican. Really--that's about the extent of his irrational rationale.

Personally, I don't care if George Dubya Bush has toast every morning before his three-hour bike ride, toast is not a partisan issue. And that also goes for toasters, and any other devices used for the browning or heat-crisping of bread products.

Think about it--what qualities of toast are inherently Resmuglican? Answer: there aren't any, because it's not. I think the basis for all this nonsense is that Mr. Ken Avidor personally prefers granola. Now, I like granola too, but I also like toast. But Ken insists that we should only have granola, and he takes his preference and tries to convince everyone to have breakfast his way.

Yes, I know a rude person once spilled jam on him and his wife while they were giving a workshop on Muesli, but COME ON -- at some point you have to let go of the anger.

The fact is that toast is nonpartisan, and it's a fact easy enough to prove. Lots of people and organizations from all around the world like toast, or are interested in the possibility of buying toasters. The European Union and the Swedish rail agency both endorse toast--are they Resmuglican? Of course not. Heck, all you really need to know is that the California Democratic Party endorsed toast in its 2004 platform.

So let's stop being distracted by this idiotic toast-versus-granola argument. We can get past it and come to the realization that, in reality, you can have toast and granola at the same time.

Toast and granola can be good together. How do you know you won't like it if you haven't tried it?
