Garrett has just provided a hilarious epilogue to all of this as part of an ongoing effort to bait me into commenting over there. Earth to Dana: It ain't gonna happen.
If you read it, do me a favor and don't comment on it. His comments have gone from about 20 per post when I was calling him out on his BS to about 3 per post. It is clear to me that Dana Garrett is no progressive.
Anyone who says that there is no difference between the Republican party and the Democratic party has taken a leap of faith that leaves them impervious to logic, reason and empiricism, the signifiers of the progressive mind. Anyone who thinks that George Bush and Al Gore are just two sides of the same coin is not interested in honest political debate but is off on some ideological flight of fancy.
Delawarewatch claims to be "progressive", and yet the "end state" that Dana is working for is the continuation of the radical right wing governance of the United States. It is that simple. So I've moved the link from "liberal" into the new category you see below.
I'm not interested in sophomoric dorm-room debates or pie-in-the-sky wishful thinking. I'm interested in getting rid of George Bush and Michael Castle. I'm interested in preventing their style of un-American kleptocracy from returning in my children's lifetime. So no more links to Delawarewatch posts, and no more commenting over there. Enough is enough.
Dana is kind of my blog godfather, so this is not some small matter for me. However, if you read some recent Delawarewatch threads you will see that the blog is dedicated to Dana's ego and little else.
