People... c'mon. Stop being so damned serious. Loosen up. It's only civilization at stake...
What strikes me about Mike Stark's stunt is this: we are a frustrated lot. We are about bursting at the seams, waiting for SOMEBODY to do something to stop BushCo.
I can't get no. no no no no satisFACTion.
dKos and other blogs are great at getting out information that makes you want to explode. Certainly, I am well informed. I am armed to the TEETH with lies, corruption, depravity... all sourced and verified. Yep, I'm all informed up and no place to go...
So please, give Mike a break, cause he only speaks for Mike. Give me a break. There are more important issues. And this is us... killing ourselves and saving the bad guys the trouble.
Scout Finch's diary hits the right notes... balanced, gentle. As I commented to her, what i loved about her diary is it that makes us hold up our emotional feel-good response to Mike's action and ask our common-sense selves: is this the BEST way to handle this? i don't think it was TERRIBLE thing... but certainly it was not a necessary thing
But then, i wonder, what else is left to us? Sometimes i think we do these things because we're frustrated and nothing seems to stop the bad stuff.
All I can say is that MOST Americans are waiting for us... begging us not TO turn them off or away... it's up to us, not the GOP. So let's not make this as big an issue, as say Ted Stevens or GonzoGate.
And we have to stop playing defense and worrying about being labeled. That's insane... we have the (most of the) truth on our side and, as i said in a comment last night, we just aren't sure how to wield it.
Mike, no more silly stunts would be good. But it's not the worst thing we've done to ourselves and it won't be the last. Let's move on.
And start pushing-the-fuck back at the people who deserve it.
