The Cracked MC

Every so often, when I'm first going on to Blogger to update this here e-pistle, I click on some of the links of the passing parade; fellow bloggers who have just updated. Often this lands me on some Japanese schoolgirl's reminisces or a faux blog that advertises real estate or business opportunities. But the other day I struck the site of the Crack MC.

Here's a guy who drummed for the Beatnigs but, get this, he's a black atheist Republican and spends most of the blog dissing Obama as a choice for President. That is, when he's not busy ascribing every weakness and planetary problem to 'New Agers'. He calls his blog The Macho Response and it is the intellectual equivalent of mountain goats butting heads but when you call him out on anything (as I have done over the last few days) he quickly devolves - if that's possible - into ad hominem attacks. He's got nothing: thinks that homeopathic medicine is dangerous and that pretty much the whole environmental movement is misguided. He doesn't even go in for recycling. And, despite being quick to diss others for their lack of knowledge or understanding, is a shill for the fat cats of industry and the military industrial complex.

Look I hate radical Islam too but that's no reason to be just as boneheaded and prejudicial. You won't convince the world that you're in the right if you commit the atrocities that you decry the enemy for. Pity that such an obvious observation is lost to someone who is more upset over Hillary and 'those lying Democrats'.
