Some cutesy stuff from the Puffington Host again...

In their fantasies about us meanies, they just can't stray too far from reminding us of that aggravation of Terri's Legacy to whatever consists of their souls.

A leftie just can't go wrong quoting Friedrich Nietzsche to make himself sound smart at least to other libs. It reminds me of the observation about the old cadaver's quote.

Friedrich Nietzsche, "God is dead."

God, "Friedrich Nietzsche is dead."

It may not have sounded so cute, but perhaps more useful if he had followed a more modern day philosophy of Rodney King.

............................

The German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, adopted a specific word for an emotional side effect of suppressed aspirations: ressentiment.

The slave revolt in morality begins when the ressentiment itself becomes creative and gives birth to values: the ressentiment of those beings who are prevented from a genuine reaction, that is, something active, and who compensate for that with a merely imaginary vengeance.* While all noble morality grows out of a triumphant affirmation of one's own self, slave morality from the start says "No" to what is "outside," "other," to "a not itself." And this "No" is its creative act. This transformation of the glance which confers value -- this necessary projection towards what is outer instead of back onto itself -- that is inherent in ressentiment. In order to arise, slave morality always requires first an opposing world, a world outside itself. Psychologically speaking, it needs external stimuli in order to act at all -- its action is basically reaction. The Geneaology of Morals, 1st essay, sec. 10

~Snip~

Remarkably, however, the assembly line at the ressentiment factory begins to stutter. Demystified as political theater by antics like the Terry Schiavo affair and confronted by the growing realization that every one every where knows at least one quite decent person who happens to be homosexual and one extended family member in need of an abortion, the social agenda of Karl Rove evangelism loses traction...........
