There has been an awful lot of yelling and screaming about who's a real dirty fucking hippie and who's a poser and who is getting punched by who.
I never really get these dust ups...well, I do...but it always gets down to somebody screaming betrayal and telling other people how to do their jobs...and then they get personal.
I'm just a rather ridiculous and smart-ass blogger who does something else for a living between the manifestations of this obsessive/compulsive disorder that is blogging. Hence, I sit here and post almost everything in rapid succession between 3 and 6 am every fucking day, including my shift on FDL where you'll notice I pretty much do the same type of blogging I do here (often, because I'm lazy, the EXACT same thing).
(Nice try on turning something that is rather pathetic into something seeming noble...and failing, but I digress).
I am decidedly not an activist...I have neither the time nor inclination to be one. But I'm glad they exist. You cannot agitate without causing agitation. But again, not everything and every post that I'm not the author of is something I endorse either there or here (hell, I may not endorse everything I write) -- however, nobody has ever told me what the fuck to write about anywhere.
As far as the constant range-war between the left and the, uh, left on health care, what can I tell ya'? But I endorse what TBogg says...
In a few months we are going to be looking at the 2010 elections and you will find that all of your purity trolling and finger pointing and blame casting and the self-righteousness that is turning the Democratic party into an open-air abattoir will not, in the long run, prove to be helpful.
Therefore, I would like to slip on my dad sweater, plop all of you on my knee, take a puff of my pipe and give you some fatherly advice:
Chill the fuck out.
Thank you. You may now go back to destroying America.
