So I’ve been having a little one armed battle of wits on Washington Times. If you read this blog you know I’m pretty left leaning liberal. And I tend to be able to see nuance in things, like how the prosecutor in the Zimmerman case left out relevant elements because they were afraid of starting a race war.
But then the comments start getting silly:
This thread tickled me:
Wait, wait. You prayed with your kids, made sure they were involved in structured activities and yet they’re still not perfect? I wonder what went wrong.
Because none of us are perfect you kumquat…and he accepts that as a fact of life.
How dare you call me a Rutaceae! And a lot of us are a whole lot more perfect because we don’t have the veiled racist attitudes that many of the comments on this post seem to display. And the notion that none of us are perfect, that’s straight out of Christian dogma.
Then there’s this thread – where the ad hominem resembles pot calling kettle black:
Oh sure – examine no-fault divorce. Make it harder to divorce and watch the domestic violence rate increase. I’m always appalled by those who are one sided thinkers like you guys.
whereas U R merely intellectually challenged.
My response for some reason disappeared – in essence I told him pot, meet kettle.
