But the smart stuff is being drowned out by a fierce, bullying, often witless tone of intolerance that has overtaken the left-wing sector of the blogosphere. Anyone who doesn’t move in lockstep with the most extreme voices is savaged and ridiculed—especially people like me who often agree with the liberal position but sometimes disagree and are therefore considered traitorously unreliable.
I don’t know why he had to get attacked to figure any of this out. All you have to do is read them to realize that they a) have no idea what they’re blathering about, and, b) they’re very, very angry individuals.
I find them very entertaining myself. How could you not, when they jump through hoops and froth at the mouth on command. But it’s also worth noting that there are more than a few nominally “conservative” bloggers who are nearly as witless in their determined Three Monkey Republicanism.
