Oy, what a glutton for punishment I am. Iím about to do something thatís painful but necessary: deconstruct an article published in the Magazine of this past weekendís NY Times. Its author Steve†Almond is given this valuable real estate to recycle the oft-argued claim that Fox News and the conservative talk radio are poisoning the political debate in this country. He then takes the argument one step further by saying he and his poor fellow liberals have been getting suckered into empowering and legitimizing them, and urges them should stop.

He was raised in Palo Alto, California, and graduated from Henry M. Gunn High School. He received his undergraduate degree from Wesleyan University. He spent seven years as a newspaper reporter, mostly in El Paso and at the Miami New Times. He lives in Arlington, Massachusetts. He reviews books for The Boston Globe and The Los Angeles Times.

Always the same-o same-o with these no-nothing clowns. Spoiled little brats growing up in elitist homes and going to private schools. Never had to get down n dirty, never had to deal with real people, real problems, real neighborhoods and schools. Yet also so picture-perfect in their feeble little minds, never a prejudiced bone in their bodies, yet always quick to judge others they know nothing or little about because they’re puppets living in their unreal little world.

Heh, heh, even this joker’s website can’t stay in business.

Deconstructing a Slimes hit piece is like mucking out a storm drain. It may be useful but you need a power shower when you’re done.

Almond uses “fanatic” (fanaticism) and “extremist” (extremism) as pejoritives to describe a staunch conservative unashamed by his conservativism and can cogently argue his position based on the facts.

Libtards use words like fanatic and extremist, which are anti-concepts that are designed to replace and obliterate some legitimate concepts, to smear and demonize their opponents to try win arguments without having to debate. The remedy is to force libtards to define these terms with rigorous precision.

I am constantly surprised that so many so-called intellectuals become cheerleaders for for the left. I firmly believe that it is cowardice that drives them, for it is far easier to side with their leftist party line than to stand up for truth.

I wouldn’t get too concerned about this clown. This moron has real issues. I just finished reading a foul-mouthed interview he did with some internet literary mag. He writes fiction, and when he writes about women, he admits he wears women’s underwear. Enough said about his mental capacity...or incapacity.

"need a power shower"

Never more true than with this schmuck. If you read his bio on the internet and read an interview he did with an on-line literay mag, you'll need a very strong power washer-scrubber to get the slime off.

Steve Almond is a regular Mr. Fancypants who thinks his sh*t don’t stink. I’ve met my share (or fill, rather) of Wesleyan grads and Almond embodies their ethos to a T: “Me me me ... am I so cute and smart at the same time or what!?”

Sean Hannity’s question on Almond’s John Kerry vote and Almond’s re-cast of the question’s context reveals Mr. Almond’s missing spine nicely.

It is actually a hatred of God that drives all leftists, liberals, Communists, and Socialists (who are ideologically no different from Communists).

Without a fear and reverence for God and His laws, men become laws and "gods" unto themselves.

Happens every time.
