....because they are the nastiest, most close-minded bunch of hatefully misguided folks to walk this planet, that's why. Earlier this week Roy Edroso, who blogs at Alicublog, linked Dean L.'s fine "Post Santorum depression" post.
I've engaged in a few flame wars with Alicublog and it was all good 'net fun; his loyal lefty readers left a series of knee-slappers here. They're the virulent Kool-Aid-drinking types one comes across on the internet that not only disagree with you but hate you, just because you are an independent thinker who disregards their Hegelian dialectic marching orders.
Roy Edroso is also the guy behind the The Village Voice's "Exploring the Right Wing Blogosphere" series (image, left above). He wrote this book that he's hawking at Amazon.com -- nice work there, buddy. And if the content of his book and the quality of his readership are any indication, the guy is... well, disturbed. But aren't most leftists, anyway?
I saw his link and left a comment. A reader jumped in and it went like this (language alert)...
Thanks for the link. BTW, does hoping for a brokered convention make us "wing nuts"? If anything, it makes us the opposite i.e., indpependent.
Is "indpependent" the word that describes wingnuts who like to pretend they're independent?
Nope. For instance, I would prefer to lose than for Santorum to win; am I a wingnut, then? How about you throw out the demeaning slurs?
Oh, I can throw out demeaning slurs all day - batshit crazy, brownshirts, teabagger (whoops, I forgot - the teabaggers named themselves that and it only became "demeaning" when someone told them what it meant). But the fact that someone who plans to vote for whoever the Republican nominee is describes himself as "independent" is simply another indication that wingnuts don't understand the meanings of words.
Dude, wow, what planet are you from? Seriously, your bigoted template doesn't fit me. If you weren't so consumed with visceral hatred you might actually have heard what I said here. Who did something terrible to you that made you hate people that dare to see things differently than you?
Keep it classy, leftists...
I have one word for all of you: DIVORCE
