So the shoe fit?
That is the only reason I can see that anyone could find this
offensive. 
OBTW there have been many cracks by "liberals" on this list that did
not generate this kind of BS reaction. Do you think their intent was
"good" while this intent was "bad" because you agree with their intent
and you felt this intent was directed at you?

Okay, now THAT doesn't make sense. The only way I can be insulted by  
a crack is if it's true? What kind of logic is that?
<Snip>
Well, let's see. I'm going to guess you're a conservative. How about  
if I had made a joke about the "fascistic, greedy conservatives"?  
That's a stereotype too, and that's just as unfair, and cracks like  
that are thrown around by some liberals who really mean it. That  
doesn't make it true, and nothing about it is inoffensive. It works  
for any creed, too. How nice would it be if he'd made a joke about  
"sinister, hateful atheists"?
We can't pretend that word choices aren't provocative, or that having  
made them that the listener should be unaffected by them.
<Snip>
Feel free to point me to some of them, because I don't remember them.  
If I have made such comments, I will apologize. If such comments have  
been made without complaint from me or others, then we were remiss  
and I will apologize for that, too.

The shoe I was referring to was "delusional, illogical liberal
minority". Knew I should have added a smiley.
<Snip>
Conservative, liberal, depends on ones perspective. Those to my right
are conservative, those to my left are liberal. 
<Snip>
I would probably respond with something like "I resemble that remark"
and joined in the laughter.
<Snip>
This whole thing started in a thread about humor. While "delusional,
illogical liberal minority" might be provocative, when read in context
it was funny. Much of humor is based on taking something to an
extreme.
<Snip>
It has been some time and I don't remember any examples ether.
<Snip>
I hope so.

Back to the humor part of tonight's program:
A Russian couple was walking down the street in Moscow one night,  
when the
man felt a drop hit his nose. "I think it's raining," he said to his  
wife.
"No, that felt more like snow to me" she replied.
"No, I'm sure it was just rain" he said.
Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about
whether it was raining or snowing. Just then, they saw Igor -- a minor
communist party official-- walking towards them and decided to ask him.
"Let's not fight about it," Igor said. "Let's ask Comrade Alfred (a  
MAJOR
communist party official) whether it's raining or snowing."
As the official approached, Igor said, "Tell us, Comrade Alfred, is it
officially raining or snowing?"
"It's RAINING, of course, you stupid idiots!!" screamed Alfred, and  
walked
on.
The woman shook her head and whispered to Igor: "I know that felt like
SNOW!"
Igor patted her on the shoulder. "No," he said, "Rude Alf the Red knows
rain, dear."
