"I find that if you go looking for a fight, you can usually find one."

I've always believed that it made more sense to be vigilant of the lies and propaganda emanating from lefties than attacking those whose end-goal is the same as yours. You know, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"? There appears to be an exception here (and here). To get to the point, Raphael Alexander has written six paragraphs to describe a bone of contention against one blogger that could have easily been summed up in one sentence: She has a nose for shit-disturbing, and she's quite good at it. Raphael, I believe your heart is in the right place. Attacking fellow bloggers just because they don't know or don't care to articulate themselves as politely as you imagine yourself doing is futile and a waste of talent, and in the process you have come out looking no better than those whose writing styles you disagree with. You look like a shit disturber yourself. Kinda like me at the moment. I hope you don't mind me quoting your reference to Kathie Shaidle or Jason Cherniak, Raphael: "I don't read either blog for rather obvious reasons." Just for the record, I very rarely read them either. Which is why I don't write whole blog posts about them. I do read yours though, and I have to admit that I'm having difficulty understanding why you have such hatred against bloggers whose writings you so strongly disagree with. If you don't like them, stop reading them! It's that simple. Also for the record, I personally don't care if you are or aren't a Liberal. As long as you vote Conservative, I don't care what you call yourself. I'm very liberal myself but vote Conservative because I believe that they are the most capable of protecting liberalism. I should rewrite the opening sentence, but it's my turn to be stupid now.

Practicality isn't as sexy as passion, but probably should be practiced more often. :)
