Dr. Sanity: How to Be A Victim

Her best post ever. You must read the whole thing. Here's a teaser:

Here is a handy list of possible oppressors that can be used by almost anyone searching for victimhood status:

- caucasian, heterosexual males
- Republicans (either male or female)
- conservatives (either male or female)
- businessmen or women (commonly referred to as "little eichmanns")
- capitalists
- rich people
- Christians (particularly Republican or conservative)
- the U.S. Military (all services)
- Americans (as a general group)
- Israelis (Jews)

Note: This list is not exhaustive, but it is a good place to start if you are pursuig victimhood for fun and profit.
I'm trying to figure a way around this list, because even though I feel victimized I'm being labeled as an oppressor. That's not fair.

I've decided to start a new victim group: The Marginalized Oppressor People or M.O.P. for short. I just don't feel respected enough as an Oppressor. Oppressors are denigrated and made fun of. We're what fat people used to be--the last butt of every joke. Well, I, for one, refuse to take it anymore. M.O.P.s unite!

You bloggers listen to the radicals too much. :-)

Katie Couric (or any other big time news maker) does not speak for the majority of Americans, heck she hardly even speaks to Americans (check those ratings).
