    anyone still defending rall is just as likely to still support paul. rall supporting paul is not likely to change any minds.

    •  LL, you use this "meh" thing a lot. (3+ / 0-)

      Here's an idea:  When an idol of yours gets pilloried, just disappear.

      Your fatuous concern trolling, as a passive-aggressive defense of Ted Rall, is extremely transparent.

      Nothing worth noting at the moment.

        •  No need to insult with the "try it sometime" (7+ / 0-)

          about not having idols. Otherwise, I defended you in your non-defense of Rall, because that's true, and I've seen it myself. I'm trying to avoid making a dozen juvenile insults right now, and I'm only starting to succeed.

          This is not a diary about pie.

          It's not even really a diary about Rall.

          It's a diary about the damning of the Left by the Left's own failure to think critically and carefully as well as to act out of positions of despair, choosing harmful stances out of passion (including the passion's churned up by the media mouth-breathing) rather than through assessment and reason. That doesn't mean we all have to become monks, obviously. Just thinking a little more for ourselves rather than being so gullible and lock-step would actually be good.

          So I'm arguing to not jump off that bridge that all our friends did that mama always warned us about. That's what happens.

      •  I respectfully disagree because (0+ / 0-)

        he has not, thus far, supported Rall from anything I've seen, thus my general bewilderment.

        Now the folks, downthread, seem fine with supporting this conservative creepazoid, on the other hand. Full-throated at that.
