Erick Erickson von Ericksdottir blows his little bugle till his face turns a darker shade of Redstate.  With two lanterns atop the steeple, he cries out in feeble, cracking voice: To arms Strike Delta Force Ninja Ops Berserker Squadron Force

At what point do the people tell the politicians to go to hell? At what point do they get off the couch, march down to their state legislator’s house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot?

At some point soon, it will happen. It’ll be over an innocuous issue. But the rage is building. It’s not a partisan issue. […] Were I in Washington State, I’d be cleaning my gun right about now waiting to protect my property from the coming riots or the government apparatchiks coming to enforce nonsensical legislation.

What Big Gummit perfidy provoked this incitement to gun scrubbing in preparation for the imminent black helicopter jack booted thug riots?  What proverbial straw broke the camel’s back and led to the descent to chaos and warfare unbridled?  Behold:

Spokane County became the launch pad last July for the nation’s strictest ban on dishwasher detergent made with phosphates, a measure aimed at reducing water pollution. The ban will be expanded statewide in July 2010, the same time similar laws take effect in several other states.

Many people were shocked to find that products like Seventh Generation, Ecover and Trader Joe’s left their dishes encrusted with food, smeared with grease and too gross to use without rewashing them by hand. The culprit was hard water, which is mineral-rich and resistant to soap.

This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but post-rinse residue.  Hey Erick you collosal ass-clown of a jackoff of a moron, I got your Wolverines! right here:


Postscript: The early days of Deterg-o-fascism?  If I recall Hitler was a germophobe. 

What’s that?  If Hitler was a neat freak, why would he mandate  the use of underachieving detergents you ask?  I think that only goes to prove my point.
