Several have strongly suggested that I comment on douchebag Ken Cuccinelli’s suggestion to amend the poem so as to invite only those who “can stand on their own two feet” to immigrate to America. Reluctantly acceding to these suggestions, I offer just a few observations.
- “The wretched refuse of your teaming shore” sounds a lot like “people from shithole countries.”
- The “brazen giant of Greek fame, with conquering limbs astride from land to land” strongly brings to mind a certain someone. See infra.
- I do not believe Mr. Cuccinelli’s suggested amendment comports with the spirit of the original poem.
