There are crazies on both sides and we all know that. I address it here on my Houston Chron blog:
But what about the tar and feathering of Palin that is clearly sexist coming from the other side?
To me, that has been the far more disgraceful thing about this election.Comment Posted By Rightwingsparkle On 12.10.2008 @ 12:17
Looking into Bill Clintonâ€™s eyes is like falling into a swimming pool.
(a swimming pool at a bath house maybe)
His eyes are deep and blue and comforting and, as person after person will tell you, when his eyes lock onto yours, you feel like you are the only other person in the world.
(if your female, the only pair of boobs in the world too)
Margarida Perreira, 48, of Manchester, N.H., can stand it no longer.
â€œCan I give you a kiss?â€ she asks him.
("Well," Clinton thinks, "I prefer you give me a...oh nevermind."
â€œSure you can,â€ he says.
She hugs him fiercely.
(who cares about the groping, She has the only boobs in the whole world)
Sorry. I just couldn't resist. And this is SO on topic, Bill Clinton sees his near future:

Remeber these gems from John Kerry (ya know the Democratic Presidental candidate?)
"Kerry: â€œYou know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you donâ€™t, you get stuck in Iraq.â€
And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women..
Try tip toeing through the tulips at Kos or any other well read left wing blog and you will see a defense of these remarks ad nauseum.
To pretend that the left side of the blogosphere doesn't seem to delight in horror stories about our military is foolish. It's just a fact.
We do not disagree that there are "bad apples" or that bad things don't happen with some 138,000 troops in Iraq. Tell me where there are 138,000 people anywhere at any given time where there isn't rape and murder. I can promise you the numbers are much bigger in the civilian population.
But the military in general is by far a honorable and decent group. Stories like Beachamp's struck a chord. It seemed to be (and has proven to be) nothing more than an attack on the military.
I think people are perceiving you as somehow brushing this off. It may not be a big thing to media elite, but it's a big thing to us.
I don't like how people have responded to you. I don't like how many on the right attack those on their side when someone seems to break away from the pack. I experienced my share of it by supporting McCain. I know.
We all need to take a breath. Life is not black and white. We all are not always going to agree.
But I think the blogosphere in general could use a big dose of manners and civility.Comment Posted By Rightwingsparkle On 7.08.2007 @ 19:55
The really great irony here is that the dishonesty through exaggeration and outright making-stuff-up that we have seen in the RW blogs far exceeds anything that Beauchamp did.
Yeah, the leftwing blogs never do that. *snort* They win the blue ribbon on that one, I'm afraid. No comparison.
They claimed that TNR was part of this vast left-wing conspiracy to denigrate the troops.
Who said that?? I am regular reader of the "rightwing" blogs and I have never seen this assertion. The only thing I have seen is that the left claims to support the troops, yet always seems to find satisfaction in stories such as Beauchamps.
How can they, with a straight face, try to apply a standard to TNR that they never apply to themselves
uhhh...maybe because WE AREN'T JOURNALISTS. Blogging is what it is. Opinion and more opinion. Of course the standard is different for a magazine or newspaper..Good grief.Comment Posted By Rightwingsparkle On 7.08.2007 @ 16:56
Wow Rick, you really made Ace mad.
My only real point is that looking at the big picture out side of Blogworld, this doesnâ€™t move anything. Itâ€™s an â€œinside blogâ€ story that bores everyone else to death and might rate a story or two in the Times and WaPo but thatâ€™s it.
Sometimes, we take ourselves too seriously, donâ€™t you think?
I agree with you to a point. While it is true that the only people who really care about this story is the blog world,TNR, and the military, isn't the military and the TNR angle very important? I mean if this hadn't been exposed, then Beauchamp's stories would be liberal fodder for years to come. It might have gotten a pulitzer, for God's sake.
Isn't it important to not let the MSM distort and denigrate our military? Especially since we finally have the power to do so???
No, this won't help us win the war in Iraq, it will just maybe keep the MSM from helping us lose it.Comment Posted By Rightwingsparkle On 7.08.2007 @ 11:48
