Now do you feel like the dumb bitch you are?

In addition, I received several requests to 'cancel.' As in 'Don't send me this
stuff anymore!!' Oddly enough, 100% of the cancellation requests came from reporters
and e-mail addresses ending in .edu
David Horowitz has pretty much confirmed the overwhelming leftward bias of our universities.
I can understand how conservative views upset and threaten the worldview of ardent
Liberals. What's harder to understand is the outright vitriol. The lack of manners,
courtesy and, well, class.
More perplexing still, is the subject matter. Good news, any good news about America,
the war in Iraq, our booming economy, and the left goes into a tizzy. What's up
There's a trend here. Bill O'Reilly recently reported on the democrat web-site,
Daily Kos. He aired some of the pornographic pictures of our President posted on
that site. I'm no prude, but I was shocked. What passes for reasoned discourse on
Daily Kos is comparable to scribblings on a bathroom wall. Yet all the Democrat
candidates are validating this behavior by speaking at their convention.
Other postings on other leftist web-sites chortled with glee upon hearing the news
the Chief Justice Roberts had experienced a seizure. These hate-filled, profanity-filled
posts are making their way into our national conversation. Being validated by publication
in 'mainstrean media', being discussed on the evening news, being debated by pundits.
The hallmark of today's au courant Liberal is criticism. Most liberals have exquisite,
ginned up outrage and 20/20 hindsight. All well and good. Lacking in these discussions
(diatribes? soliloquies?) are any proposed solutions. It's easy to be against
something. Against the war, against Bush, against conservatives. Anyone with an
IQ in the 'mentally challenged' range has enough smarts to know what he doesn't
like. But someone should tell these guys that this is only half an argument. Reasoned
debate necessarily includes more than just being against something. It should include
a suggestion, a proposal, an idea of how an issue could be resolved.
This is where I join the ranks of liberals. I have no suggestions, no clues, no
gems of wisdom to offer. I am criticising groups on the left, yet I have not the
vaguest idea of how to deal with this issue other than to complain about it. Color
I don't want to believe that all liberals are like the ones described above. I want
to continue to believe in the basic goodness of the American people. I'm going to
keep in mind that, at least in my experience, the gross bad manners and childish
behavior have, so far, been limited to media types and those that live in ivory
I'm going to keep in mind that the self-anointed 'elites' who seem to have the corner
on hate, malice and profanity comprise a miniscule percentage of all Americans.
Unfortunately, they're the ones with the megaphone. I'm pretty sure I'd be hearing
a different tune if Joe Blow in flyover country had the microphone.
And to you, Colin, I do have a constructive suggestion. In the future, you may want
to think twice before sending out e-mail's that reflect so poorly on you, your profession
and Macon County News.
August 6, 2007 Update:
Apparently Colin Goode has received several e-mails' from conservative readers in
response to this article. This prompted several passionate and increasingly irrational
missives from Colin to yours truly.
Before I was forced to block Colin's e-mail's due to personal threats, he actually
had the good manners to address his last e-mail to me: "Thanks, B****." (as opposed
to his previous "bitch")
Conservatives can take pride in actually having an influenced a true liberal.
