I really should not post today because I am extra bitchy, but I just have to say that this really irks me (and not just because I am extra bitchy).
Over at Green Mountain Daily, Odum has a post that talks about how mean the VT GOP Chair is, or something or other, because he calls an inaccurate statement a lie. Boo-hoo.
Anyway, what irks me is that he said this in the comments: “It really surprised me. As someone who used to be a webmaster for one of the state’s political parties, I can attest that we wouldn’t have gone there, and if we had, we’d have caught a lot of flack.”
Oh my effing goodness! I cannot believe that he thinks anyone would buy that load of crap that the Democrats rise above such tactics.
Of course, I am a little biased. See, for those of you who have not heard this story a thousand times, a certain former official of the Democratic Party in a certain city in Vermont (I don’t want to get too specific because those really nice and not at all vindictive Dems might decide to sue me for libel) waged an active campaign to try to get the Burlington Free Press to stop running my column in the Writers Group, which BTW was a paying column and I really needed that money. (See the Dems only care about the poor when the poor in question are not Republicans. Oh yeah, and when the poor are asking for government hand-outs and not trying to work for their money because, you know, we wouldn’t owe them anything that way.)
So, anyway, it really gets under my skin when someone tries to claim that Democrats are so nice and always on the up and up, and all that, because the reality is, they are just as much scum-sucking bottom-feeders as any one else. Yeah, that’s right.
And this is why I should never blog when I am in a bitchy mood. Or at least, if I do I should use a pseudonym like Kate does and not let people know who I really am.
Now that I have that out of my system, I will be back when I have something nice to say.
