Many times I am accused of hastily writing posts- saying things like “It is pointless to argue with Democrats.” Every time I do, someone states that I am going overboard- that not all Democrats are the same, etc. Recently, Gary Farber has rightly made similar claims. I say rightly, because most of the time I do not mean ALL Democrats, even though I think it is rather clear who I am talking about- the fringe elements within the party, so Gary’s crtitiques are often pedantic arguments about semantics and rhetoric.
At any rate, so as to clear up any past confusion and avoid any future problems, when I make sweeping statemtns about ‘the left’ or ‘Democrats,’ recognize I am not talking about everyone, but those represented by total ASSHATS like Atrios.
Today’s entry from everyone’s favorite ignorant phys. ed. teacher is just a gem:
Election in Spain
So far, going against Aznar’s party, PP.
…looks like George’s only friends are Blair and Islam Karimov.
In other words, terrorist have changed the outcome of an election in Spain, using the deaths of 200 innocents to bully a population into submission- and this is a victory for Atrios.
Human debris like Atrios are not a reasonable, ‘moderate,’ political opposition. They are swine, incapable of viewing anything in the world through anything other than an irratiuonal hatred of George Bush.
