I want to hop this up from the comments, just in case. We have about 300 people swinging through here a day. We do comics here, we do gaming here, we do movies and screenwriting here, and occasionally -- if it's something I've found funny or annoying for that particular day -- we do politics here.
Most of my friends -- and therefore the comments -- tend to run to the liberal side of things. We had a slightly more conservative friend poke his head in, and (s)he felt a little defensive. You will note, he was never attacked. His arguments had a hole or two poked in them, where there were holes, but no personal assaults. As it should be. But I'm sorry he even felt he had to be on the defensive in the first place.
All this leading around to -- I'm not a "liberal" as it's currently defined. I'm a pragmatist. I find the false dichotomy of current political thought antiquated and intellectually bankrupt. Go back and read my essay "I Miss Republicans." What annoys me about the current administration is not that they're conservative. It's that they let ideology trump reality. I'm equally annoyed when liberals do it. Also, American liberals as an institution are really, really, REAALLLLLY annoyingly smug. As much as I enjoy Al Franken's writing, Michael Moore's movies, and Janine Garofalo as a societal construct, I'm fairly sure that if I sat in a coffee shop with any one of them for more than five minutes, I'd punch them in the neck.
So, as far as Kung Fu Monkey stands, liberal or conservative, come on in. All are welcome. The first person who throws a personal attack on these comments is banned, no matter how close a personal friend.
But have your fucking facts down, and your arguments better be based on some goddam numbers, or you WILL feel the iron grip of the Kung Fu Monkey.
Also, the "bombing Iran" thing was really just a way into the super-villain/apocalypse bit. Don't take us so seriously.
