The Poorman reviews a post here and notes:
Pluses: Complete spittle-drenched lunacy. Creepy, crypto-fascist Bush/Reagan idolatry. Nearly as shrill as The Editors have, regrettably, become.
Minuses: Uses punctuation correctly. Needs to ramble more. Not pictured in a leopard print sack in front of an enormous American flag.
I guess I missed the Reagan Idolatry (and Bush, for that matter). I thought I was talking not about them, but their (actually just Reagan’s) detractors. I also thought I made it pretty clear that the term the ‘left’ is a generalization to discuss the lunatic fringe to the left of mainstream Democrats, but the Poorman must have been overdosing on snark and missed that. Or ignored it, which is probably more likely.
At any rate, it is nice to know I am not a full-fledged fascist (just showing crypto-fascist tendencies, mind you), but I guess that does give me something for which to aim. That and a leopard print sack, at any rate.
I do have a question, though. Why is it that the people who so clearly recognized the boorish behavior of the GOP extremists in regard to Clinton so clearly miss it when they engage in the same behavior regarding Bush and Reagan?
I think it’s got something to do with this:
You never realize you’re being a dick until after you’re through being a dick.
Which leads me to suspect I’m being a dick most of the time. Except, of course, when I’m apologizing for it.
Amen…ahhh those were the days :P
