Skip to comments.Moonbats unite! Show pride in hotbed suburb

A flap over an allegedly pervy state senator - and scathing columns by the Heralds own Howie Carr - pushed some Arlington residents to bite back by embracing their inner moonbat.
I happily take the term moonbat and fly free, said Menotomy Moonbats spokeswoman Deborah Butler, who was derided in one of Carrs columns. Were looking for a way to put positive energy into the word.
The group ordered 60 T-shirts last week designed with a bat against a glow-in-the-dark moon backdrop. Theyll be on sale at the Arlington Farmers Market for $15 each as soon as Aug. 20.
The caped crusaders hope to turn around the moonbat monicker, which is generally an insulting term for liberals.
The Menotomy Moonbats - who include unenrolled and Green Rainbow Party voters - had considered moonbat pride since May.
Sen. James Marzillis groping arrest in June coupled with Carrs persistent taunting prompted their recent decision to spread their wings.
You wind up with the straw that breaks the camels back, said Butler. I cant say when critical mass was reached, but a number of us started posting that wed like to put moonbat on a T-shirt and use it.
Carr has consistently zeroed in on wealthy liberals, and has focused on the Arlington variety in particular since Marzillis arrest.

I think my ex-gf is involved with this bunch. Good thing I got out!
C'mon,Andy'smom,you've gotta give us more detail than that.See if you can do it without getting banned.I know that *I* don't have the guts to try! ;-)
I think “Menotomy” should be replaced by “Lobotomy”
That’s because your not a democrat...
...These t-Shirts...They’re sorta like the “I’m with Stupid” T-Shirts...with the arrow pointing up...or would that be down?...
In Marzilli’s case, it would be “down”. Definitely down.
I believe he was referring to the type of question they ask on WAAF:
“Dr. Bombay, Hitler or Link from Mod Squad?”
From their own web site (proving that EVERYONE has a web site):
“We are a group of citizens formed to represent the positive ideals embodied in the term ‘Moonbat’
We embrace the idea of dreaming of a positive future.
We encourage flights of fancy to create new ideas to bring about that future.
We understand that, sometimes, good ideas come from new places.
We welcome others to fly with us.”
