On tweaking Mike

I've been good lately, but I'm going to pick on Mikey again. I think it's funny that he links to me and drives traffic my way, because I'm sure the wingnuts who go to his blog to read about how libruhls are destroying the world don't see those same sentiments when they get here. I don't post *much* about politics, but I think it's pretty obvious that my views are basically diametrically opposite of his.

Anyway, if you read his last 10 posts, he's back on a roll on how Democrats are idiots that need the much more intelligent conservatives to hold our hands and show us what to do, since we can't figure it out on our own. I'll leave out the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. If it takes you more than 5 seconds on Google to find counterpoints to everyone of his posts about stupid libruhls, you need to brush up on your search engine skills.

What I find so funny, though, is (1) that conservatives get so worked up about actors who are politically active. Whatever they are doing, they are obviously doing something right if they are getting under the skin of our conservative overlords. What is even funnier, though is (2) that it is pretty clear when Rush or Bill or Neal give their flock of sheep marching orders about an issue to be all worked up about. A few days after Mikey's righteous indignation about Robbins & Sarandon et al., this amazing insight appeared in the Daily Collegian by one of our finest columnists. I didn't google it, but I'm betting it would take me about 5 minutes to figure out which of the blowhards (unless it was all of them) decided to make this an issue. Personally, I would have never heard anything about this event (or would have ignored it) had I not seen two reminders about it from conservatives. So regardless of the outcome of whatever Robbins & Sarandon did, the fact that it tweaked the right makes me think they were successful.

Lastly, since I'm assuming my comment on Mikey's post got deleted along with the spam comments, I'll make my point here -- to quote him: "The biggest problem wiith the Left in this country is the repulsive spokesmen they manage to conjure up." My response to this absurd comment is simple: Ann Coulter.

If you want to say Ann Coulter or Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly are repulsive, I can only agree.

Ok -- so if we agree that there are obnoxious partisans on *both* sides, then if we ignore the Robbins, Sarandons, O'Reillys AND Coulters, maybe we can have reasonable discourse.

Agreed. So my point stands. The jerks on both sides so enrage the other, reasonable discourse is impossible. The loudmouths are the biggest problem on right and left. If you guys put Sarandon Robbins and Moore on a rocket into the Sun; we'll put O'Reilly and Coulter and D'Souza at the bottom of the ocean.

Also, remember that I've been perfectly willing to jump on Boortz, Limbaugh and Sullivan when I think they're being pigheaded. Boortz has been that way a lot recently
