Powerline on PETA, Pawlenty

Didn't this happen two weeks ago?

Powerline, crowed king of all blogs by Time, talks about Tim Pawlenty and PETA here.

This isn't the first time Powerline has taken their sweet time for blogging a story.

Is it too early to nominate MDE for "Blog of the Year?"

Hindrocket at Powerline Blog also got the City Pages "Best Meltdown Award".

City Pages didn't mention where this came from - the MinnPolitics blog - minnpolitics.blogspot.com.

Others had the gall to riff comically on the homoerotic connotations of the Powerline boys' chosen handles. (Hinderaker likes to be called "Hind Rocket;" his collaborator and fellow Dartmouth alum, Scott Johnson, is "the Big Trunk.") As the name-calling and spam assaults escalated, the Powerliners were filled with shock and disgust. Why can't those liberals make their point in a thoughtful, gentlemanly manner? Rude, crude invective is their stock in trade. Leave the high-minded analysis to the Ivy League boys. It turns out, of course, there is an exception to this principle: if you are named John Hinderaker and you are interacting with people you regard as moonbats. Then you can feel free to let 'er rip. The Hind Rocket's great meltdown occurred this past February, after he received a fairly mild critique of Powerline's posts on a scandal involving the White House's use of fake reporters. If you are a connoisseur of the meltdown, Hinderaker's frothing, sputtered, red-faced response was a thing of beauty: "You dumb shit, he didn't get access using a fake name, he used his real name," he huffed in his e-mail. "You lefties' concern for White House security is really touching, but you know what, you stupid asshole, I think the Secret Service has it covered. Go crawl back into your hole, you stupid left-wing shithead. And don't bother us anymore. You have to have an IQ over 50 to correspond with us. You don't qualify, you stupid shit." Way to go, Blog of the Year!

Why not link directly to the specific KAR post? Most of what they are posting these days is whining about Dump Bachmann.

The link is fixed, thank you for pointing out that mistake.

Pretty ballsy of you to go after Power Line, isn't it?

Eva,

"Whining" - there you go using that word again.

OK, fair 'nuff. If what KAR is doing is "whining" about DB, then what you are doing is "whining" about Bachmann - day after day after day after day...

Get a life.

I have a feeling I will soon be this week's victim to Eva's bullying.
