      Reactions to my comments tend to consist of the same eight Heathers throwing tantrums.

      You can't really judge anything from the reaction to my comments. Don't even try.

        you don't appear to have engendered much support...

        But please, proceed...

          on this thread are supportive - far more than the people denouncing it.

          And history has demonstrated the angry people make more comments than supportive people, in everything from blog comments to public hearings, so even that disparity understates the situation.

          I actually thought for a second you were trying to make a point about something (ever-so-slightly) removed from comment-thread dick-measurinig - the response of Kossacks to this story.

          Clearly, I was mistaken. You're just hooting about people hide-rating a throwaway line I wrote.

          My bad. I won't make that mistake again.

            you appear to have hallucinated a great deal more "support" in this thread than actually exists...

              Read the thread, fella.

              You're an itty-bitty minority. Sorry about that.

                haven't seen one comment endorsing your comment about "lefties"...

                Or was that just a throwaway line that doesn't count because it doesn't fit your narrative about being "representative" of the vast majority of kossacks? Because last I checked, most kossacks don't even use the pejorative "lefties", much less toss it about here...

                See, it's possible to support the president's action without endorsing your dickishness...

                I don't see anyone on this thread endorsing that...

                So yeah, if you want to feel triumphant, have at it... but you've really done nothing but insult people who otherwise more or less agreed with you on the topic...

                Yay you?

                Baby, where I come from...

                  I'm talking about opinion on, oh yeah, the topic of the diary - the American mission to Chad? Remember that?

                  Perspective: get some.

                  •  I'M talking about your comment... (0+ / 0-)

                    and how it distracted from the diary you claim to hold in such reverence... gratuitously alienating people (like myself) who otherwise agree with your position on this issue...

                    Of course you're not talking about your comment... I wouldn't either if I were you...

                    Thankfully, I'm not...

                    My perspective is fine, thanks...

                    •  That's sort of sad. (0+ / 0-)

                      You were deliberately, purposely having a multi-comment back and forth on the topic of how popular my one-liner was?

                      It would never in a thousand years occur to me to do that.

                      You just did that, and you think your perspective is fine?

                      Hokay.

                      •  "Obtuse" appears to be a hobby of yours... (0+ / 0-)

                        no, we weren't having having a "back and forth" about how "popular" your comment was... I don't think either of us believes it was particularly "popular"...

                        I was discussing your comment in context to this diary, which your comment not only distracted from, but also alienated many people, myself included who actually otherwise agreed with you as it relates to the president's action...

                        And Joey, you're doin' a heckuva job...

                        •  No, "We" weren't. Only you. (0+ / 0-)

                          I thought we were talking about - silly me - the actual topic of the diary.

                          It was pretty much just you going on and on about the popularity of a throwaway comment.

                          Congratulations. That makes you really awesome.

                          •  Hmmm... apparently more than a hobby... (0+ / 0-)

                            Unlike you (apparently) I'm able to walk and chew gum at the same time...

                            You must have missed this:

                            I was discussing your comment in context to this diary
                            Try reading my comment again, this time, try not to move your lips...

                            Interesting that you'd bleat about "the actual topic of the diary" when your comment was so disruptive to the "actual topic of the diary"... to the extent that you're still insulting and alienating people like myself who actually agreed with you on "the actual topic of the diary"....

                            For someone with such a profound lack of self-awareness, you seem to be a really big fan of you... that makes one of us...

                            Baby, where I come from...
