Oh, The Comments!

I have no real use for, other than Glenn Greenwald whose articles I eagerly await and read voraciously. "Ask The Pilot" is sometimes worth reading, too, but for the most part the rest of the site is written by mental midgets and half wits. (Not excluding Joan Walsh.)

Case in point is an article by Steve Kornacki about how different government would have been had the Supreme Court not appointed George Bush and instead allowed the popular vote to prevail for Al Gore. (He doesn't phrase it that way, of course.) He suggests that Gore would have invaded Iraq just as Bush did. I really don't suggest that you actually read the article, even for him it is dimwitted, but I do suggest reading the comments. The comments are delightful. My favorite is,

And a monkey might fly out of your ass, too.
The same place where you are pulling your conclusions from.

Seems the readers at Salon are a bit more on the ball than the writers.

  1. I remember reading an article about Pres Gore and how he would have done a lot of what Bush did, and was impeached for it. Interesting reading, but seemed like a far fetched story. Same with this one. Possible, maybe, but just... out in left field.
