Comedy gold

Do you ever get annoyed at tough-talking wingnuts whose immediate response to anyone who disagrees with them is to threaten them with death or serious injury, and whose rhetorical technique consists of accusations of homosexuality laced with frequent and repetitive profanity, but who -- when called on their bullshit -- turn out to have tinier balls than a baby dwarf mouse?

Us too.

Which is why we really enjoyed reading this, and think you will too.

And have a nice weekend, or I'll come and kick your faggot asses, you fucking cocksuckers!

mmmmmm..... democracy......

Winston, I appreciate you linking to that post, but what does it have to do with this post?

I don't see a connection. What did you mean?

Winston Smith said...

I was merely attempting to draw Doug's attention to an issue that he would apparently rather ignore (much as he was trying to do with his nonsense post).

Pablo said...

Oh, so you were just changing the subject. I see.

Winston Smith said...

What, was I supposed to dignify Doug's allegation that we "lick Castro's boots" with some sort of serious response?

Please.

Pablo said...

Let me make sure I have this right:

You post on some flamewar relating to blogs nobody reads.

Doug makes a snarky post suggesting that youre ignoring a range of issues.

You respond by linking to a post of your own, on yet another issue, without saying anything else, and then say you're simply trying to draw his attention to that completely different issue because he's ignoring it...

...and you're justified in changing the subject because Doug wasn't serious enough.

Is that correct?

mmmm....democracy.

That's how it works, right?

Winston Smith said...

As if we should allow either you or Doug to dictate to us what we should and shouldn't cover. You might think we're too naïve to understand the importance of "defining the debate," but that's not the case.

If you want to have your kind of discussion, go start your own blog.

Or, as Our Leader once remarked: "Who cares what you think?"

Pablo said...

No, I can see that you're very interested in defining the debtae. In fact, you're so in terested that you've spent a great deal of time changing the definition of the debate. This is often referred to as moving the goalposts.

I'm simply trying to clarify the rules you're playing by, and I think I'm getting it.

It's a lot like Calvinball, right?

Why so surly this morning, Winston?

Winston Smith said...

Let the record show that Doug is the one who changed the subject in the first place.

If you had a blog, and you posted something about what a wonderful SCOTUS John Roberts is, and I countered with a completely irrelevant post about, say, the Kurdish terror attack in Kusadasi last week, would you or would you not accuse me of changing the subject, and trying to steer the discussion toward my pet topics?

Mote, beam, etc.

Winston Smith said...

PIMF: "what a wonderful SCOTUS nominee..."

Pablo said...

I understand that Doug changed the subject, Winston.

It's your blog now, correct? You made a post, and Doug went OT, big time. You responded by changing the subject again. Personally, I would have steered it back on topic (it being my post and my point that we're supposed to be discussing), but you took a different tack, and changed the subject again. I found that a bit odd and asked for clarification, because I like to know how things should work, and I would have done it differently. It is your blog and you have every right to set the tone. In fact, you're responsible for the comments here, so it's absolutely within your right to police them.

Knowing that this is how you think it should go, I merely changed the subject again. I think I'm pretty clear on the whole thing now, and I hope you're not offended at my asking.

The only thing I want to know now is what you think abot Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes getting married.
