  •  More of Brady's bullshit (none)
    Here's a point that was made somewhere outside of this thread (I wish I could remember where). Brady was a sports journalist for years. Therefore it's safe to assume that he's spent some time in locker rooms, and therefore it's safe to assume the motherfucking cocksucker is bullshitting us when he poses as someone with genteel sensitivities ("words that I didn't even know existed").

    Here's a point I haven't seen made yet, anywhere. I detect more than a hint of sexist condescension in Brady's macho charade of protecting poor little innocent Debbie, as if she's not a big girl who can take care of herself: "You may not like Deborah Howell ... but like you, she's a human being. She shouldn't have to read people publicly calling her a 'b----' or a 'wh---,' and we're certainly not going to allow that on our site. ...  You want to call one of employees a 'b----' and a 'wh---,' you should go somewhere else."

    Somehow I find it hard to imagine such a pose being adopted if the genders were reversed.

    Gratuituous macho posturing seems to be a key identifying characteristic of Bushism.

    •  That posture is at least defensible (none)
      I can do without calling Deborah Howell a "bitch" or a "whore."  I don't believe for a minute, though, that that's what got the comments shut down.

      Calling her a liar, a tool, a shill, wrong, incompetent, partisan, and lousy at her job were the sorts of things that got the comments shut down.  If Brady has to protect her from hundreds of accusations like these, he ought to ask himself why he's doing it.  Not that I'm holding my breath....

      •  Distinction (none)
        In my opinion, no words are too strong to describe the traitors who are trampling on America. They are a miserable betrayal of all our predecessors who fought to build what we are now pissing away.

        As Ed said, "the time has long-since passed where we need to be civil with those who have stolen our democracy."

        I object to "bitch" and "whore" only because they introduce gender, which is gratuitous. I think it's highly revealing that those are the exact words Brady chose to make his point. This is part of his macho posturing.
