shorts

I try to read George Will regularly--this column is an example of why. Great contrast of Emersonian versus Madisonian view of democracy; really makes you think.

Presidential candidate/erstwhile North Carolina Senator John Edward's bonehead play, namely the hiring of a couple of ill-natured leftist bloggers whose CVs to that point apparently consisted largely of profane rants against anyone and everyone who didn't fall in with them politically, has been a great source of amusement for the conservative blogosphere lately. I've heard, however, that some Catholic bloggers have not been at all amused. It seems that the Edwards Erinyes' electron trail has included some singularly vicious anti-Catholic screeds.

Should anyone reading this post be concerned about this state of affairs, I highly recommend this post, and this one from Iowahawk. Either of these literary endeavors ought to completely alter any righteously outraged net junkie's perspective on Edwards and his electioneering. Or at least keep him laughing too hard to fuss. (H/T MrsDarwin)

ALERT: The language in these posts is, for the very obvious reason that it mimics the chosen blogging vernacular of the Erinyes themselves, strictly rated R, if not NC-17. I'm talking Scarface caliber. CONSIDER YOURSELVES WARNED.

I tried to post a reply to her "I wasn't fired, I resigned" thing, explaining that it was her hatered that got folks upset, not the "daring to disagree"-- yeah, like half the country doesn't violently disagree with Catholics re: birth control?

Seems to be blocked, even though I've got wordpress.

I hope she gets rid of some of that hate. Must REALLY suck.
