Dear BB: Over-generalize much?


Oh, my ... apparently, at least one Blogging Tory is getting a bit miffed with my constantly pointing out how the Blogging Tories have, as a collective, an amazingly selective sense of outrage. Let's follow the bounding BBall, shall we?

Normally I don’t comment on American domestic politics. I don’t particularly understand Canadian blogs that do either. I just don’t see why should get my knickers in a twist about things that I have absolutely no control over.

OK, fair enough; to each his own. Sadly, however, BB doesn't know when to quit:

Do any of those blogs(helllooooo CC helloo Sourpuss seriously that all their faux outrage at whatever American mini scandal du jour actually makes a difference? The only thing important to Americans is other Americans. The sooner that some blogs learn that the better.

Why, yes, and that would make perfect sense, except for the fact that countless Blogging Tories do make it their business to comment childishly and stupidly on the goings-on in American politics, as long as it serves their ideological agenda.

Why, it was only a few months ago that the BT community was absolutely stroking itself into ecstasy over the utterly bogus controversy of Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid and the infamous boxing tickets, about which I made several observations.

Under the circumstances, then, if members of the BT bubble chamber have the time and interest to whine on and on and idiotically on about some freakin' boxing tickets, then I am perfectly within my rights to point out what kind of ridiculous hypocrites they are when they carefully avert their eyes from the Alberto Gonazles train wreck that is happening even as I type.

So, BB, if you've no interest whatsoever in American politics, that's cool, that's your choice. But let's not be so arrogant as to presume to speak on behalf of the rest of your BT colleagues, who have a real talent for obsessing over the silliest things imaginable down south, but always seem to be on vacation every time the Bush administration finds an exciting new way to implode.

Is that fair? Hmmmmmmm? Does that work for you?

P.S. Catnip does BB, and not in a good way.

"The only thing important to Americans is other Americans." I am sad to say that is true about a lot of Americans, but not all. Some of us would like to change that jingoistic outlook.

Geez, and here I thought that the "Cynic" part of your blog name was a result of your belief that your comments here would influence American politics...

Shorter BB circa 1938: How dare those French and British writers
publish newspaper stories about Nazi Germany. Don't they know that Germans only care about Germans?
