UPDATE: Hyperbole (& Hate Mail)

The original post is here.

To reinforce my point that the ire of this primary season is getting totally out of hand, I, blogger un-extraordinaire, got my first hate mail today.  It came after I commented on Ezra’s posts (links below), which I’ve reprinted here:


I’m surprised by this post from you. You’ve been pretty equinimical (sp? word?) thus far.

My reading of this MI/FL debacle is so different, and both campaigns are gunning for it to come out in their favor (obviously) – Obama’s caucus suggestion, anyone?

MyDD has a post today about how it’s the FL/MI politicians who are, again obviously, campaigning to have their votes count. Few seem to be covering this fiasco from the perspective of the states; it’s only one campaign’s shenanigans versus the others.


The email is as follows:

What does rationalizing and making lame excuses for people who are blatantly unethical and dishonest make you?  Answer?  A pathetic ass.

Have a nice day!



Moving on.

I’m blown away by another campus shooting.  No words.

I’ll be back in calmer times with some thoughts.

    The garden variety trolls, they are coming out of the woodwork these days. I had one this past week, too.

    It’s really hypocritical for a rude, name calling jerk who can’t respond to the points you raise (very good ones, I hadn’t thought about it from the states’ perspective) to call anyone a pathetic ass. Has said jerk looked in the mirror? 😛

    Clearly, you offered a productive and interesting discussion, it was scary for the Troll!

    That sucks, I’m so sorry.
