  •  I'm certainly intelligent enough (7+ / 0-)

    to recognize an act of desperate flailing insufficiently coated in fustian rhetoric when I see one. ;-)

    •  Yes. (0+ / 0-)

      I think we both are.

      One more question there -- is the top link that there Google search a Baba Wawa thing in your mind? Did you know that blog was cited in Jerome Corsi's "Obama Nation" whose entire thesis is that Obama is an ersatz messiah of a cult of personality? Oh, okay, two questions.

      Or are you just going to throw up more insults and mockery rather than confront the facts?

      Okay, three questions. But the last one was rhetorical because we both know the answer.

      Remember this, corvo: Part of being a progressive means living in the reality based community. And facts define reality. So you can do as a progressive does and accept facts, or you can reject them, in the finest traditions of Ken Ham.

        that there's been somewhat less "cult of personality" around here ever since blackwaterdog was banned -- well, sort of banned, at least.  Not that there aren't those who are still really sore about it.

        Otherwise, remember this raptavio: Reality is defined by facts, not by those who wield the tasers in the veal pen.

            •  And I do. (0+ / 0-)

              But more importantly, so do the facts.

                •  Recs don't matter, (0+ / 0-)

                  but I'm sure you'll have a couple buddies reccing your remarks too if they matter to you.

                  Just remember -- you have yet to address any of the evidence. Or even acknowledge its existence. Because that's what people who prefer their ideology to reality do.

                  Please -- say something to deflect from that again. Your best bet is to make it about me rather than the facts.

                    It's about you and your off-topic threadjacking.

                    None of this nonsense is germane to the diary.
