The Post That Keeps on Giving - Wingers with Woodies Revisited
Then this AM I opened my blog and there in front of me was another new comment on a post I wrote back in January of 2010. Of all the posts to my blog, this one post has by far had the most hits and resulted in the most consistent flow of comments. Not many of them have been friendly comments either.
Since I have a moderation hold on any post older than two weeks, I see every comment that comes in before it posts. I do that to try to limit the amount of spam that used to sneak in the back door so to speak.
Seems there are folks on the Right side of aisle who take exception to my "Wingers With Woodies" post. It is not what I consider a post that deserves the attention it is getting, but it certainly has pissed off someone or a few someones. At first I deleted any comment that was posted as "anonymous". But so many great ones were being missed I decided to post them when the acrimony was not filled with profanity and racist stupidity aimed at Obama. I bet I deleted 30 or so comments before they had a chance.
The most recent comment received this morning, over a year after I wrote the post:
By the looks of his pic Mr. Macrum is really Mr. Macscum. Why the hell don't you take a long shower and shave and clean up? And while you're at it wash your mouth out with Lysol. Your politics are twisted, and besides needing to clean up your brain is badly misguided. "
This one is fairly typical of the kind of comment you might find if I had posted all that came in. Obviously most folks commenting on my post have little experience as trolls or as writers. Rather than make me mad, this comment made my day. I just love it. It is indeed a keeper. I published it to the post and will respond once I have finished this post about it.
To all you Wingers out there swingin serious wood over what I write, please stop by. Your comments bring a smile to my face and reinforce my contention that the only reason the Right is successful is because they appeal to the lowest common denominator of our great population.
Y'all have a great day.................................................
