Does anyone know how to fight back? Maybe that makes no sense, fighting fire with fire. Even a successful revolution achieves a little change that only lasts a little while. And then before you blink and sigh, the wrong people are once again literally calling the shots.
Your post says it well and perhaps taking a long--very long--view, writing about as many travesties as possible just might show people how to recognize the real from the fake.

Hell, one reporter I talked to seemed to think that I wrote the Plan B joke on the Edwards blog.


George Will won't bother with their blogs for the same reason Edwards fired them - - vulgarity still turns some people off. I know the hipsters of the left find that incredible but I'm afraid it is true. And if Will was not sufficiently put off by the language in a blog like Pandagon, maybe he read one of her Duke lacrosse posts and decided she was an idiot. He wasn't the only one. As for the brilliance of McEwan, all she did was piggback on another article. Nobody who read the actual report would have gained much from her overheated commentary.

The bit about the aristocracy was amusing, though. I'll be sure to pass this on to my blue collar Catholic friends in Queens and my military friends in the South. They had no idea that they were aristorcrats - - what a pleasant surprise.


"Think George Will is going to come back to read that one?"

No. I doubt George read any of the stuff in the first place. I surmise that he has staff for that; they research and tell him what he thinks.


Duh...sorry Lance, can we remove the above? I must have agreed with you so much I decided to repeat what you said. (burning blush issues from flyover country)


Nola: Just because the butler and the scullery maid approve of aristocrats -- as they are unduly wont to --doesn't mean that the aristocrats aren't aristocrats, and that the butler and the scullery maid aren't "the hired help."


Your argument would have more merit if there were fewer butlers and maids and more aristocrats. And the same claim can be made about the Democratic Party. Not that I subscribe to it - - insulting the intelligence of voters is something I would rather leave to the Left.
