Comments: Friday stuff

I believe it's extremely important to listen to as wide a range of political voices across the spectrum as possible.

But, then, I also believe that while it's important to know what the stupid opinions out there are, it's also important to only take seriously the, you know, intelligent voices and opinions (wherever they are on the political spectrum -- "intelligent" doesn't correlate with "agrees with me," whomever the "me" is).

This allows one to exclude Fred Barnes. Fred Barnes will always make one's head hurt. This is because several dozen scientific studies, done over many years, conclude that Fred Barnes is what is technically known as "an idiot."

Feel free, if you have any questions in future, about which other voices, public or bloggy, are in that technical category, to consult me. I have a little list, and I live to serve.

One can also consult mine own blog.

No, no, don't thank me! As I said, I live to serve.

Murmur. It encourages people to comment if they're replied to. Of course, discouraging people from commenting is always a viable and understandable option. Damn riff-raff might not be wanted.

Hey, remember I'm starting a new job. :) There are moments when they do expect me to do some work, and this week has been full of them!

In fact, I'd written a rather lengthy response to your first comment when I had to delete it unsaved due to factors too boring to get into.

Rest assured that I'm reassured by your opinion of Barnes and am, in fact, checking out your site!
