Bloggers Angry At Blunt Camp's "Fire Ants" Comment

So, his spokeswoman likened bloggers to fire ants, stinging in groups.

So f'n' what?

I continue to support Shadegg, and I don't like Blunt much, but please, let's not make this personal and act like spoiled bitch-brats when someone returns fire on us. Q & O dissed Blunt; so, Blunt's camp disses bloggers.

Are the legions of us who trade in snark and stinging criticisms all day above a very gentle bit of ribbing ourselves?

Mike Krepansky attempts to make a larger point:

Way to build bridges with one of the most important emerging constituencies of the GOP. What would you people have done in the early 90's, pick fights with conservative talk radio hosts and call them nasty names? Genius.

But no dice. We ain't that big yet, and criticizing a fuddy-duddy politician for not knowing what blogging's all about is like... well, it's like Maureen Dowd ripping into George Bush for not watching Sex & The City. Personally, I don't want my elected leaders knowing what all the kids are into these days. A politician who says "I just can't live without my iPod" ain't getting my vote, that's for sure.

That said, Shadegg is preferable, and Red State is right to suggest people call their congressmen and urge them to support him.
