A RESPONSE TO GLENN GREENWALD

Glenn Greenwald has a history of redefining terms to suit whatever argument he is making at the moment.

Understatement of the year. I know folks have to respond to this guy, but it must grow tiresome. I don't really have a huge problem with his political opinions, but his situational distortions and intellectual dishonesty should make any reasonable analyst want to yank out great handfuls of hair.

He basically falls in my "ignore" pile.

I WANT A NEW DRUG

Hence, while I still believe your reference to Tourette syndrome was over the top and uncalled for given the stigma society attaches to that disease and the pain you may cause someone who reads your remark who suffers from it,

Tourette's is a condition whereby an individual shouts out random obscenities that make little sense and are often quite particularly offensive. It is a PERFECT descriptive metaphor for Harrell's odd, nasty rant. It is not intended to diminish or mock the suffering or situation of people that ACTUALLY have Tourette's - I personally know one such person - and I think you'll see that if you can pull your head out of your either "situationally politically correct" or "personally touched by a specific disease" bum.

Please enlighten me - what other diseases and conditions are we not allowed to reference as metaphorical comparisons? I'd be curious to see your list. Wheelchairs? Common cold? Bi-polar? Hangnail? Spare me.

Also, your forgiveness is once again hypocritical, as I haven't heard of you trying to "get to the bottom" of any rants from Pandagon or the Daily Kos. I've seen people killed by drugs. You don't have to look any farther than me. But that wouldn't give me or anyone else the excuse to say that all people that use drugs should be slowly beaten to death in public. That's so far beyond Kos, it's astounding.

Get some perspective.
