Dumb question: who the Heck is ‘in the fade’? If she’s been on the BBC, I’ve probably heard of her, and I may even have met her. (Somewhere around here I’ve got pictures from a couple of 2002-03 NYC blogfests.) Odd that her twitters give no clue as to her name, or even her pseudonym. Or have I missed something obvious?
Well I feel just a tad taken in. For what it’s worth, I never thought that Michele wasn’t liberal, or that she was a huge worshipper of “our Dear Leader” (I guess that means Bush), or that she was all thrilled with war. I thought that she was justifiably angry at the terrorists and their supporters who had killed so many people that she knew. Now I see it was all just some sort of mental aberration, and that those of us who haven’t “woken up” and gone around apologizing for being mean, nasty warmongers who are filled with hate and who listen to Glen Beck 24/7, are still insane. Okay.
(Full disclosure: I have never listened to Glen Beck. I’m not even sure what he’s on — radio? Cable? both? I don’t have cable and don’t listen to talk radio. I don’t even know what his voice sounds like. Anyway, gotta go kill me some foreigners now, for the lulz — excuse me, the HAYT.)
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about LGF while I was writing that, and I thought about throwing in a reference, but ultimately it seemed to work against my purpose, whatever the hell that was, and I decided to leave it out.
I too read that piece, and my reaction was similar to Andrea’s. I guess I’m glad I didn’t spend a lot of time reading her site when she believed some Big Things, for a while. And then … didn’t. Okaaaaaaayyyyyy ……….
I tried reading her site over the years, but never really latched on. She often writes very close to the bone, emotionally — which is fine for some people, I guess — but the above drama sort of illustrates why I tend not to read those type of sites. I seek to minimize drama in my life, and I sure won’t seek more of it on the Internet. And political opinions, especially, just don’t fit in that context.

"Passive resistance only has a chance when your opponent believes in the rule of law and respect for human rights. Gandhi was effective against law-abiding Britain, but he would've frozen to death in the Soviet gulag — if he'd lived long enough to reach the camps." — Ralph Peters
