I'm on a roll!

Sometimes being a reasonable adult is just too much fun.

First, read all about it at Susie's. I got lumped into the category of right-wing Freeper trolls because I questioned a "poll". The author of the "poll" then claimed that it was "commentary". I guess that's one way of looking at it, especially if you get called on it by reasonable people. Of course, while trying to have a discussion of the points made, some moonbat wigged out at Susie and called her a Nazi.

Next, over at CD's place, I was accused of being a Hitler admirer by a conservative moonbat because I dared to suggest that people might disagree with their position because they actually believed differently. An innocent enough remark in my mind, but apparently enough to send one whackjob into attack mode.

Adios to both of those places (not Susie's, but the other two) because I just don't have the time nor inclination to listen to ranting and raving from either end of the political spectrum. I don't normally make a big deal out of delinking people, and I'm not really here either, because I never linked to the one place, and I'll just stop visiting the other.

I said it once, I'll say it again: right wing moonbats = left wing moonbats. Lesson learned (again).

Some people have "hot buttons" and apparently abortion is that Sarah's; she also seems never to have heard of Godwin's Law. I think the problem here lies with the people who opposed Scott Peterson being charged with two murders instead of one because they think granting Lacey's baby personhood is an asault on a woman's "right to choose"--dismissing the fact that Lacey had already made her choice and the only reason the baby wasn't carried to term was Lacey was murdered. The polarization on this issue is getting a little ridiculous, though.

I hope you don't blame me for that Hitler thing. I was just going after people who think that pro-life=anti-women. I didn't expect a full-blown Nazi comparison to show up.

I'm not convinced that right wing moonbats = left wing moonbats, but moonbats = moonbats alright, and there certainly are right wing ones as well as left wing ones. (There are also apolitical moonbats. I've met them.)

CD, I don't blame you. :) But it's twice now that I've commented and gotten barked at. Ya know, instead of not visiting, I should just keep my mouth shut. :D Sounds like a plan my momma would've agreed with.

Moonbats on either side of the spectrum use a lot of the same rhetoric. Bush=Nazi, Pro-choice=Nazi. *sigh*

...it's twice now that I've commented and gotten barked at.

The other time wasn't when Larry the Liberal called you a fascist, was it?

Larry's...not exactly a real person. If you know what I mean.

LOL Yep, Larry was it, and being called a fascist was the time. I do this for fun, that kind of nonsense isn't fun, so I stop doing it.

Pixy and Jen are right, a moonbat is a moonbat no matter what their stripes.

I'm bad. Very bad. I had to go put my 50 cents worth in. (Hey! I think a lot of myself. Anything I say is worth a lot more than 2 cents. Besides, there's inflation to think about.) I guess I can't say the devil made me do it because that would make Ted the devil wouldn't it? :-)

Well... I'm certainly not going to say anything negative on poking fun at things while commenting on them. I'd lose half of my output if I stopped doing that, Ted. ;)

I tend to agree with Susie - looks like you ran into someone who's hot button is abortion and who automatically equates pro-lifer with neo-nazi. Barking Moonbat material, allrighty.

I think you hit on why I comment on only the few blogs that I do, and mostly ones I know I'll read on a more or less daily basis. I don't have time or inclination to keep up with every argument, even though I'm not adverse to the odd flamewar.
