I just got back to town and had the pleasure of reading all of the responses to pkram's assertion/assumption that everyone who's on the op-ed pages of the New York Times is per se liberal. The problem with simply ignoring a user is that, while you don't see his banal posts, others quote him so that you get a chance to see his banal posts.
I'm starting to feel more sympathy for pkram and more ire for Ned, as I'm closing out the last few chapters of "What's the Matter with Kansas?" by Thomas Frank. A must read... I wish I had picked it up earlier.
pkram is a brainwashed puppet for the wealthy. Ned is the puppeteer. The wealthy families of America snicker when they see pkram and Ned working so hard
fighting a phantom liberal establishment that simply doesn't exist. They try so hard
to make themselves out to be victims and they pour all of their efforts into "reclaiming morals" and they do it by securing the power of precisely those people who put the "filthy" shows on television. Somehow they always manage to overlook how the deified CEO's are sending our jobs to China, or bilking stockholders for millions of dollars even while their company is filing for bankruptcy. Somehow, the problem always has something to do with the liberals, even though most of their everyday problems come from conservatives. Look! Some hippy is burning a flag!
March, monkeys, march! March straight to the establishment's doorstep with a sign reading, "You're in for it now! We're voting to give you a tax cut!"
Good book... I highly recommend it.
