Why I am not particularly mad at Denis Leary

Denis Leary is an A**hole. He said so himself. He makes money being an A**hole. I would go as far as to say he really, really enjoys being an A**hole.

I’ve known he was an A**hole for many years and that is probably why it was no surprise to me that he had this to say about Autism:

“There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can’t compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks . . . to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons. I don’t give a [bleep] what these crackerjack whack jobs tell you – yer kid is NOT autistic. He’s just stupid. Or lazy. Or both.”

People, he wrote a book. He wants you to buy it.  And he wants free advertising. The best way? Be really offensive. Even better, be really offensive to a group that is already worn down and heard it all before. (Michael Savage says basically the same thing as Leary.)

My son has Autism, but what Leary and Savage said doesn’t offend me in the least. I know my son, they don’t.  They see children out there that are “almost” normal. They look normal on the surface. They don’t know what actually goes on in the home.

Then they look at people like Jenny McCarthy and no wonder they are calling bull*hit. They look at quack doctors with bogus “cures” and they call bull*hit. I think Jenny is a moron too but I’m not writing a book.

No, I’m not mad a t Denis Leary. I wish he’d use better terms but, hey, he’s an A**hole!!
