Not having much time (or inclination, it must be said) to prowl around the dark reaches of the Left-o-sphere these days, I am a little unfamiliar with the goings-on there. When an acquaintance dropped me a line to let me know that a comment I had made on Andrew Bolt’s blog yesterday had (within hours) been cut ‘n’ pasted (out of context of course) into comments on a new Crikey blog, and that another commenter had cut ‘n’ pasted my “About” section from this blog there as well, I dropped in to have a look. [Memo ‘Bertus’: If in future you want to debate and/or further discuss any of my comments, I’m perfectly amenable to it – on the blog on which I originally made said comments. Engage, don’t speculate and snipe.]
Anyway. Back to Crikey’s new blog. Meh. Not overly impressed, but – whatever. There’s plenty of room for everyone on the Interwebs I guess, hey? Chacun à son goût & all that. But since people with whom I’ve never knowingly corresponded on a blog on which I’ve never commented were somewhat interested in me and my life, I went to have a look at their link to a site by the same authors which is dedicated to “watching” Andrew Bolt and Tim Blair (does that sound more than a little creepy to anyone else?).
See how the blogosphere can bring us together? Here’s a great chance for bipartisan across-the-aisle diplomatic relations. Because I don’t rightly know what “conversative ignorance” *is*, but it surely sounds like something I’d be willing to stand up against as well.
Ignorant conversatives of the internets, consider yourselves now on notice! Conversative ignorance is a curse up with which we Rethuglican Sheepletards will not put. (You will later be joined in Coventry by those happy haters willing to condemn others as ignorant without even understanding the difference between your & you’re and there & their themselves.)
Well. Anyway. Like the Black guy sez, “And that’s my rant.“*
UPDATE: Mythusmage joins our bipartisan non-denominational Fatwa against ‘Conversative Ignorance’ – with a slightly different tack…
