Eric Florack, I think you're being disingenuous. The budget proposal did much damage to the GOP's credibility. I was looking forward to a detailed and thoughtful and deep counter-proposal to the Democratic budget. What we got could have been written by Jonathan Krohn.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 28.03.2009 @ 22:30
I strongly suspect Mr Breitbart is deluded. It is a very old tradition to moan about how the current generation is weak and spineless compared to the virtuous and brave heroes of old. It is much more likely that memories are being used selectively.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 23.03.2009 @ 18:26
I think I agree with the substance of this post, Mr Moran, or at least say that it makes sense.
I'm still surprised you chose to disagree with right-wing orthodoxy (that Obama's failure is the only way the USA can survive and prosper) so bluntly. I hope you are stalwart enough to withstand the venom about to be spewed against you. Please keep in mind that you do have some supporters. :)Comment Posted By Frivolous On 8.03.2009 @ 12:14
Good post, Mr Moran. You made me raise an eyebrow with your remark about what kind of sex you like, though. Heehee.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 7.03.2009 @ 23:04
I assess Ed Morrissey to be extremely orthodox when it comes to conservatism and being Republican. I've never seen him disagree with anything Rush Limbaugh says. It guarantees him many supporters, but it also makes him a tad boring to read because he is so predictable.
Rick Moran and Allahpundit are more entertaining and interesting because they don't adhere so much to the party line.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 2.03.2009 @ 11:55
I would not be so concerned about the negative responses to your ideas, Mr Moran. Your work is not bad.
By the way, if you are not too busy, may I respectfully ask for some technical help with your site? I can't seem to find the form for contacting you personally. Others seem able to see it, but it is not visible to me.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 1.03.2009 @ 09:38
Grognard is being ironic, right? I have such trouble detecting irony on the Internet.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 28.02.2009 @ 12:16

Mr Moran is a writer. I think that it's possible he might be too shy or something to actually talk to people. It requires a totally different set of skills. Plus a lack of stagefright.
Plus, what's wrong with wanting attention?
Perhaps I exaggerated when I said I've been here for some time. Is a few months a long time? My time sense is strange and perhaps dilated when it comes to the Internet.
I'd never seen you been scolded by Mr Moran, so I guess I wasn't looking at the right times. I'm sorry you felt harassed, but I do think he agrees with at least 50% of conservatism.

Being witty about ephemeral little things is what a writer does. You can't fault someone for doing his job.
As for your third paragraph, I've never liked tea, even though I probably should. It just doesn't have the richness and flavor (and masculinity) of coffee. The phrase tea party sounds effeminate to me, though I acknowledge mine is a totally subjective and probably irrational judgment. :)Comment Posted By Frivolous On 28.02.2009 @ 11:32
Sara in VA:
I dunno, is it really that important that the tea parties have unanimous support from all conservatives? I have read Mr Moran for some time now, and I think he is conservative enough. What's the harm in his being cynical and pessimistic about the efforts to drum up public outrage against the Obama initiatives? At least it's a somewhat original position for a conservative.
I do wish that Mr Santelli or Ms Malkin had chosen a different term besides 'tea parties.' It sounds so frightfully haut and British.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 28.02.2009 @ 11:00
Insufficiently immersionist, I think. I believe Mr Moran should have spent at least an hour getting into the proper mix of conviction, disdain, excitement, and outrage before he attempted this parody.
Still, a credible effort for an oldish guy who never roleplayed.Comment Posted By Frivolous On 28.02.2009 @ 10:34
