Comment of the Day: A Rick Perry Supporter Baffled By Whole "Sarcasm" Concept

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Our headline told the story: "Rick Perry Nearly Doubles Buddy Roemer's New Hampshire Vote in Impressive Show of Strength."

The item talked about how "the Rick Perry juggernaut" had overpowered the Buddy Roemer campaign.

One reader was mad.

Really wrote:

"​The Rick Perry juggernaut continued to lay waste to GOP primary opponents, neatly dispatching former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary."

You really print that with a straight face? I mean REALLY? Perry was near the bottom of the heap of actual GOP candidates and you print that like he's near the top? Idiots.
