I've been doing some weblog

I've been doing some weblog surfing recently and have come across a revealing phenomenon. I'm speaking of the pity seeking formula employed by the conservative webloggers. If some of their content wasn't so disturbing it would be funny. What contributes to the irony of the whole situation is the obvious slickness of their sites. For a bunch of set upon defenders of a besieged moral position they sure seem to have huge amounts of resources available to them.

No prefabed templates like the one I use. Their blogs are all high quality, graphic intense, bells and whistles full, multi link, and highly scripted. Judging by the number of feeds monitored and the amount of information posted these sites are more then just the work of an individual, who posts once a day with his or her ruminations. They have to be full time endeavors run by a group or group of peoples. Their concerned individual titles aside there is no way that one person could have the resources and the energy to expand to create and maintain these sites.

I'm assuming that libel and slander laws are somehow not an issue for these people considering the inflammatory comments I've seen posted on some sites. Accusations of wife abuse laid at the feet of Michael Shiavo(leave it alone folks the woman's dead and you lost that battle) or rehashings of Clinton stuff that took place close to ten years ago. It amazes me that conservatives could ever accuse people on the left of whining when I read the stuff that they are passing off as information.

What I truly find amazing is their passing themselves off as victems of a vast and nefarious plot perpatrated against them by the media. Oh poor them the horrible left wing press is out to get them. Good lord don't they ever get tired of singing that false note. They don't even do it that well anymore. It almost make you miss the rantings of Spiro T. Agnew: "Natering Nabobs of Negativity" nobody can even come close to that for absolute nonsense.

The massively funny thing is the fact that the majority of the main stream press is owned by the very people who support them. Did you know that most of the media outlets in the United States are owned by three corporations. Yep three. Here's an example of the mean spirited press that's out to get the good old defenders of the crown, I mean state. During the Gulf War one of these Media moguls set up a series of pro war demonstrations, proceeded to report on the same through a nation wide affiliation of radio stations, and then offer them up as proof of the wide ranging support for government policy. Yep it sure is horrible to have the press against you.

But they no perfectly well that there's no more effective tool then painting yourself as the victim of something or other. Whether its the double dealing judges upholding the constitution in defiance of the paragons of decency that make up congress.(Do they not even understand their own system of checks and balances that was implemented by their founding fathers, the President kept in check by the congress, and the congress kept in check by the judiciary all to ensure that the constitution is upheld) Or then there's the interfering bastards over at the American Civil Liberties Union who keep preventing God fearing folk form carrying out their right to discriminate, kill at will, or just treat everyone badly. But don't worry about them, their martyrs to the cause.

You could laugh at them for being pathetic weeinies if their wasn't the problem of how many people believe them. I mean how else did George Bush get elected if people don't actually believe that shit. So you can't just ignore them and hope they go away, because they're not and two because they have lots of money with which to get there message out to people who believe them. Before you dismiss their intended audience as just a bunch of red neck jerks I should introduce you to my mother in law who is wealthy and sort of intelligent, but who swallows everything like that hook line and sinker.

They use the emotional bullshit to manipulate the results they want from people so reasoned arguments don't work. I recommend that you who are fighting them start stooping to their level. Don't be shy. Wrap yourselves in what ever apple pie issue you can find and start coming across like the defenders of the constitution your are. Stop just attacking their stupidity but start manipulating the situation so that you are the patriots not them.

Point out the connections between Bush and the Bin Ladins in the language of the tabloids like your opponents do, use catch headlines, slogans and Hallmark sentiments. Its time to fight holier then thou with holier then thou. Don't let the conservatives stake out the victim territory. There is nothing more nauseating then seeing millionaire, and billionaire fasicits who exploit thousands of people on a daily basis painting themselves as hard done by.
