Dumb Liberals

A guy named Kareem keeps sending me these absurd anti-Giuliani/anti-Republican/anti-war ads, swearing to me they're actually pro-Rudy/pro-GOP/pro-war. Just subtly so.

One thing that's a constant annoyance is liberals' unshakable belief that they are more intelligent than every single man and woman on the GOP side of the aisle simply by virtue of their preferred politics. Demonstrable IQ, general knowledge and know-how, accomplishment, education, wit, etc.: None of these actually establish intelligence or craftiness or cunning or wisdom. No, the single variable in the equation -- conveniently enough for intellectually-anxious liberals -- is a belief in liberal policies.

As a general rule, of course, the less intelligent one is, the more one wants to shift the measure of intelligence to non-traditional metrics, such as simple political affiliation. Though even fairly bright liberals tack on a bonus fifteen points to their measurable IQ just for "being smart enough to know Democrats good, Republicans bad."

I'm posting this absurdity in the hopes that the guy trying to moronically trick me finally gets it that I cannot be tricked, and furthermore, getting me to post this does nothing to advance his cause because you can't be fooled by such a drooling dunderhead, either.

So here you go, Kareem. As you've long desired: The "pro-Rudy/pro-war" video that's really going to sock it to the liberals. Giggle.

Nicely done. You played us, Hoss.

Incidentally, just as a related thing, a Behind the Scenes at the Ace of Spades HQ blog: A lot of liberals fill up my inbox with very long posts from liberals. They cleverly have created email handles of "AnnCoulter2000" and so forth, and cutely address me as "spinmeister" and the like. Almost invariably, they send me Glenn Greenwald's turgid 10,000 word Magna Carters (heh, see what I did there?) and the occasional post from, ahem, lesser lights of the liberal blogosphere.

I don't get it. Apparently they think they're informing me or really sticking the knife in my side. Apparently they don't understand that 1) most of them are already in the killfile, and 2) I can tell what sort of email this is going to be from the title line, and 3) even if I bothered to read it, I don't quite consider Glenn Greenwald the brave Sage of Invincible Persnickettiness that they do.

In short, they've got a curious misapprehension about the power of their ideas (and I use that term guardedly) and a surfeit of free time and a rather absurd idea that "guerrilla politics" can be conducted via Gmail.

Guys? Seriously? I could not give less of a shit were I simultaneously starving to death and suffering from a blockage of the large intestine due to a sexual stunt involving a full-size model of the Robot from Lost In Space gone horribly awry.

Danger, Danger, Dr. Smith! Stop tapping your toes next to my locomotive treads! Danger, danger!

Please grow up. You're not an annoyance. It's just that I think your time would be better spent praying to your Gods, Al Gore The Father, Madonna The Mother, and Maya Angelou, The Holy Spirit of Poems Which Do Not Rhyme and Spend An Inordinate Amount of Time Discussing Rocks, Streams, and Mothers Milk from Africa.


Kareem Says he wasn't trying to pull the wool over my eyes, he just found the video interesting, and he's sorry to have pestered me. And I do believe him.

So I retract the thing specifically about Kareem. But the greater narrative is still true, even if factually I was off-base. Facts, as we now know, are soooooo 1990's. We're beyond stupid facts.

So if Kareem shows up, don't knock him. I believe him. I'm not sure what he finds compelling about these videos, but different folks have different opinions.

Another Theory: A reader has been getting barraged with these videos as well, and believes the following: The videos come from a genuine conservative website, but are actually in support of the one major candidate they never knock (which he says is John McCain). He says he gets similar responses when he writes that these are not pro-Rudy but rather anti-Rudy: "well they're funny anyway."

So maybe a bit of viral video attempts from someone "our side" but trying to push a particular candidate; I dunno. I'd be more willing to link them if I thought they were funny, but I honestly don't.
