Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Quote of the Day

But first  bit of background.  Not being aware of most internet traditions, I didn't realize that readers of the Right Wing e-rag  Free Republic were known as "Freepers."  Live and learn.

With that bit of vital knowledge in place, we may now proceed to the quote, hoisted from this comment stream at LGM.

The Freepers aren’t self-aware enough to know that their beliefs are transparently fraudulent. Mostly they just hate everyone that isn’t them, and cheer on anything bad that would affect anyone they hate. It helps to realize that the Freepers have the emotional maturity of Gollum without his erudition or table manners.
