More Sotomayor: Kinda Dumb and Nasty | Main | Top Ten Other Qualifications and Rich Life Experiences of Pin-Headed Retard-Brain Sonia Sotomayor

What Has Happened To Little Green Footballs?

What was once a must read blog for news and analysis on my rss feed has recently become a once or twice a day stop and that's only for the car crash quality of it all.

Today's head shaking moment comes from a post entitled "Limbaugh Stuck On Fail". Charles seems genuinely confused that some people might actually say out loud they don't want Sotomayor confirmed to the Supreme Court.

It seems that for a democracy to function there needs to be at least two parties who articulate their differences. The idea that partisans of either party wants the other to fail is baked into the cake.

I know Barack Obama wanted John Roberts and Sam Alito to fail in their confirmation efforts. How do I know this? He voted against them. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that, it's all part of the give and take of public discourse. Just as there's nothing wrong with Limbaugh or my wish to see Sotomayor fail in her bid for confirmation.

Equally confounding is Charles' contention in the comments of that thread that

Barack Obama ran on a platform of sheer positive messages. Not once did he wish for the other side to fail. You're just wrong to claim that negativity is winning strategy. One of the big reasons why Obama won was because he did NOT go negative -- ever.

Really? This will of course come as news to anyone who followed the campaign last year. Even the Washington Post noticed.

How about, just to pick one of many examples, when Obama accused President Bush and John McCain of "fear mongering"?

Or the distortions of McCain's words.

The list could go on and on.

I really don't have a dog (or monkey) in all the creationist stuff but while it's certainly Charles' right to post on whatever the hell he wants, the constant harping and disdain for others is off putting.

Sadly I can only conclude there's no room for me anymore under LGF's big tent.
