Choice Words for Brandon Halcomb

There’s an expression I quite like that goes something like this:

It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

It’s a sentiment I’m guessing Kentucky high-school student and self-absorbed whiner Brandon Halcomb was never exposed to (or simply never quite understood). Halcomb wrote an open letter to Vice President Biden chastising him for using the “f-bomb” in a private conversation with President Obama. In doing so, Halcomb revealed unequivocally to the world that he is a fool.

But I have to say that if you can wade through the painful syntax and practically non-existent capitalization exhibited by the Kentucky Crybaby, his extraordinary bit of pitiful whimpering is actually quite entertaining on a couple levels.

Now, let’s not forget that Biden was whispering and had been caught only because his microphone was still on. A grave error, to be sure, but it’s not like he stood up in the middle of Congress and slung the term directly at another person out of impotent rage.

It’s laughable that Halcomb is all over Biden, who used the f-word in low tones never intending to be heard by anyone but the President, when it’s well-known that former Vice President Cheney openly attacked Senator Patrick Leahy on the Senate floor with a seemingly well-practiced “fuck yourself”. Biden’s use of the word was with regard to the importance of health care reform; Cheney’s was for the express purpose of publicly slandering a member of Congress.

The other way in which I found Halcomb’s argument entertaining is in the ludicrous assumption that Biden is beholden to apologize to him at all, as if the Vice President of the United States feels the need to make reparations with some busybody high-school punk who clearly has a biased agenda and hasn’t lived long enough to even be considered aware enough to vote.

Seriously, how can Halcomb act so sanctimonious about the well-being of America when the most important thing he can come up with to put before the VP is an admonishment for using an expletive? The economy is suffering, oil is poisoning the ocean, and China continues trying to kill our children, but this dork has his panties in a wad over a swear word.

Talk about fucking stupid.

Brandon Halcomb really should spend more time on his English homework and less time on his soapbox. Maybe if he studies really hard and finally gets a grasp of basic compositional rules, he’ll be in a better position to judge the language used by others.

    Fucker. Oopsie. Now I'm gonna get a letter too. Shit. Gah! Another letter!

  2. Kirk says:

    Ha ha ha ha!It's fucking great to see you, Kzinti!…aw, crap…

  3. Sandy says:

    What is so sad is that you, supposedly an adult, would stoop to such levels and attack a kid.

  4. Sandy says:

    Personally, I think who ever wrote this article over Brandon Halcomb needs to take his own advice about keeping his mouth closed! I am assuming that the writer is an adult, and Brandon is sixteen…big difference! I agree with Mr. Halcomb that the F word and the use of profanity is a big deal, or at least it was when I was much younger. One never heard people use such nonsensical language. Our country has lost so much of her morals and values.

  5. Kirk says:

    Since your comments contain complete sentences, I must assume you aren't a spammer, so I have gone ahead and approved them. It appears you may have even set up a VOX account just to respond to this post and far be it from me to silence you.But, see, the thing is, I have no interest in the opinions of cowards. If you want to be taken seriously by me or the people in my neighborhood, you're going to have to do better than shoot spit-wads from a bunker. Internet anonymity might keep people from figuring out where you live (as if they even care), but it also renders you quite irrelevant.Either show the courage to stand up for what you believe publicly, or accept that your opinions are completely inconsequential to those of us who do.

  6. Kirk says:

    "I am assuming that the writer is an adult, and Brandon is sixteen…"That "he's just a kid" argument isn't just disingenuous, it's downright dangerous. A little boy feels man enough to write an open letter chastising the vice president, but he's too much of a child to endure the repercussions of his ostentatious actions? Should Brandon learn from this experience that his actions have no consequences?Shame on you for enabling him. It's that sort of pitiful coddling that has turned so many of my countrymen into frightened, anti-intellectual hate-mongers who."I agree with Mr. Halcomb that the F word and the use of profanity is a big deal…" I'm curious what you think of Cheney's use of the F-word in an openly vicious attack on the Senate floor. You've left two comments over two days, yet have curiously failed to speak to that grave double standard."Our country has lost so much of her morals and values."
    Tell me about it. But that's what happens when people don't have to take responsibility for shooting off their mouths.

  7. Kirk says:

    Apologies for the broken sentence. Some text got lost. I'll complete the sentence that got cut off."…frightened, anti-intellectual hate-mongers who…"…think killing people is better then trying to understand them.

  8. Karin says:

    "Our country has lost so much of her morals and values."Yeah, I remember when children were to be seen but not heard and when children as young as 7 knew how to use capitalization and punctuation.

  9. Kirk says:

    Thank you for making a very important point, Karin. When I was a kid, respect for our elders was something taught to us from an early age. It would never even have occurred to me to think I could get away with admonishing any adult, especially not someone like the Vice President!So, I guess we can add "arrogant lack of respect" to Halcomb's list of offenses.
