Blogging Tory Raphael Alexander goes for snark and misses the target badly:
We ask that members of Progressive Bloggers conduct themselves in a respectful manner.
Hear, hear! I commend this decree. Let's start with bloggers who tell the mothers of dead soldiers to fornicate with their grief.
Wow, Raph, that's really clever ... except I'm not a member of PB, and haven't been one for at least a couple of years.
Reality: 1; Raphael: 0.
AFTERSNARK: It's thoroughly entertaining to watch Canada's whingers and their delightfully malleable principles:
Whingers: "Those leftards are a bunch of uncivil, shrieking, deranged, vulgar, out-of-control moonbats!"
Progressives: "We'd like to have some rules to guarantee civil and polite discussion."
Whingers: "Those leftards are a bunch of censoring, anti-free-speech, hypocritical control freaks!"
It seems like there's just no pleasing some people. Stupid people least of all.
