How's This For An [Expletive] Headline?
So, how will the world respond to David Finkel's WaPo piece on Maryscott O'Connor and the anger of the Leftyblogs? It's all there, all five clicks of it, and not one counterbalancing word about the right side of the blogosphere.
Page after page of rage. The anger of the Left in full bloom. Expletives deleted, culminating with:
"I also wrote to my [expletive] congressman to get off his [expletive] [expletive] and do the right [expletive] thing."For the nice little libs, this world of raging profanity will be a shock. Maybe the next few days of letters to the editor will give us an idea of how they responded, but we may never know. As for the blogs, at 11:38 pst there were 22 blog links to the memeorandum blurb on the story, everyone from Betsy and Hugh to a cadre of vomit-mouths, including a strangely subdued but nonetheless objectionable Rude Pundit:
The front page article, by David Finkel, is focused on My Left Wing founder (and Kossack) Maryscott O'Connor, about whom the Rude Pundit has long held dear a dream of a crazed weekend in a hotel suite in Santa Fe, with mezcal, peyote, and a live trio of tribal drummers.Here's how O'Connor (who's married with a kid, by the way, Rude Pundit) explains her rage:
"It has come to the point where the worst people on Earth are running the Earth." And now, "I have become one of those people with all the bumper stickers on their car," she says. "I am this close to being one of those muttering people pushing a cart.We can perhaps forgive O'Connor her position because she lost her father in Vietnam before he even knew that she was a girl. But there's a difference between a position and an all-consuming rage.
"I'm insane with rage and grief.
"But I also feel more connected than I ever have."
To not be able to [expletive] finish an [expletive] sentence without using an [expletive] expletive is mental illness, not cute political insight. These thousands of foul-mouths who write and comment on the leftyblogs are suffering from a mass delusion that blinds and depresses them.
They are feeding off each other, finding in the blogsophere indication that they are normal, and therefore they lose all desire for true normalcy, folding themselves instead into a sisterhood of the sick, a brotherhood of the bile-drinkers.
The false acceptance of the abnormal offered by the Internet's infinite umbrella has always been the Web's downside. Like child molesters talking to other child molesters on their Web postings, O'Connor, Rude Pundit and the other yappers and carpet-stainers of the Leftyblogs see their behavior as normal, and find their blogs as comfortable havens that make them mainstream.
I pray for their healing, but as long as they're sick, keep them in their virutal insane asylums.
