Behan vs Lowell.....Behan wins by a knockout!
The comments are over 40 now. This has been very interesting. To see the leader of the Raising Kaine site come onto a conservative blog and show his butt is priceless. Am I surprised? Not in the least. I have questioned the Raising Kaine site many times as has Norman and John Behan. John's post "Raising Kaine is hurting the Kaine campaign, Part One" was a good one. It was not an attack on Lowell, but a question of: is in your face rudeness a good tactic to recruit voters to support your candidate? I say no it is not. I posted this and got a warm Lowell reply. Nothing to compare to the rant Lowell puts down over at Behan's. He blames many:
- " over at RaisingKaine, we’ve been attacked relentlessly for months now by your “conservative” (”right-wing” is a better adjective) compatriots in extremely hostile, non-substantive, non-productive, ad hominem ways."
Attacked? I have not seen an attack. I have seen Raising Kaine posts torn up by fellow bloggers. A comment by Jim Patterson says it all:
- Neither Lowell or Waldo are capable of civilly accepting criticism. Their first reaction to anything remotely negative is to scream “TROLL!” and threaten to ban the offender.
Simply put, they are both thin-skinned lefties of the most common sort — they love to dish it out, but can rarely, if ever, take it.
Heh. Waldo and I had a exchange before. I link to Waldo on my blogroll as he is a voice to be heard. Waldo said I attacked him- when in fact all I did was link to his post's and called him a jacko. For that Waldo thought I should stop blogging. I am sure many would agree with that Waldo!
This leaves me thinking about the much talked about bloggers summit. No, I will not attend and I plan to post why later on today or this week. I will stop this long post quoting Lowell Feld of Raising Kaine with a comment he left on John's blog:
- "I could give a shit if I’m “considered a serious blogger.”
Powerful statement from the man who is Raising Kaine....Indeed.
