This entry would consist of choice quotes from the racist assholes who comment at Little Green Footballs, followed by a list of blogs which link the cesspool, but to be honest, I can't be arsed reading that shit.
Do I mean the comments at LGF or the blogs that link it?
If you'd like to do this yourself, here's the Technorati results for LGF. Please do keep in mind that there are just so many comments there, that Charles can't possibly police the threads for. . . anything other than non-complimentary stuff, apparently.
Sorry, saw some right-wing idjit babbling about how linking Ted Rall or Micah Wright or Democratic Underground conclusively demonstrated something or other.
Which is why this entry is almost link-free.
This conclusively demonstrates something or other.
Those folks were a lot more fun to satirize back when they were slightly less shrill and still had some grasp, no matter how tenuous, on reality.
Which is going to make my conversion to conservatism either much more difficult, or a hell of a lot easier, depending on your point of view.
I do think I understand the right's dislike for race-based affirmative action, though. Since the, you'll pardon the expression, "talent pool" is so shallow, you have totally, clearly unqualified Negroes getting nationwide newspaper columns, or getting named to the Supreme Court just because they're black and conservative. The right-wingers extrapolate from this, rather than realizing that, by and large, they ain't dealing with the cream of the crop when it comes to the opportunistic, self-promoting. . . right, I'm planning to be one of them. I should be less critical.
This is going to mean a rather complete overhaul of my links list, obviously. I'd feel very silly jumping into one of the "why are there so few women bloggers?" discussions, for a start.
And then this chick comes up to me,
and she's all like, hey, aren't you that dude,
And I'm like, yeah, WHATEVAH!
Because it always bears repeating.
