You're entitled to your own opinions ...
... you're not entitled to your own facts. And this is the basic issue when dissecting the inane dumbassitude of the wankersphere.
It's not that their opinions are illogical, internally inconsistent, poorly reasoned and even more poorly defended. It's that their basic facts are just hopelessly wrong. Or, as Arnold Rimmer would say, "absolutely brimming over with wrongability."
I've been chided (in good fun, of course) for picking on the "low-hanging fruit" of the Canadian wankersphere. But, I ask you, who among the Blogging Tories wouldn't qualify as low-hanging fruit? Who in that collection of pompous windbags actually has a blog that's worth reading on a regular basis that doesn't contain constant errors of simple fact, or that doesn't present howlingly hypocritical arguments with a perfectly straight face?
You want more intellectually-challenging criticism? Fine -- point out some Blogging Tories that actually post something worth reading and critiquing. Seriously. I'm open to suggestions.
AS I WAS SAYING ... Can you even read this entire piece without gagging? Or this one?
