Tim Rock: Name Caller
Timothy Rock from The Other Side Of My Mouth has a rule for his blog:
What I will not tolerate here is vile and vulgar name-calling. A fellow blogger
from the right side of the cheddarsphere left a message earlier today. To his
credit, he removed it at 5:53 am. What he doesn't realize is I have my site set
up to read all comments as e-mails additionally.
Apparently, in his mind, "vile and vulgar name-calling" is clearly defined. But I'm not sure exactly where that line is drawn.
For instance, in a post just a day later, mimicking Brian Fraley's take on Democratic events at the State Fair, Rock finds it humorous to compare conservatives to the Ku Klux Klan.
No lack of conservatives in action at the State Fair this year. Here is a
conservative schedule of far-right events at the Republican Party booth.
Come join the KKK and learn how to cut those eyeholes in the right place so
the white hood fits perfectly.
I don't know about you, but I consider the KKK to be one of the most vile and vulgar organizations in the history of the United States.
Obviously, Timmy doesn't think so.
He then goes on to respond to a comment to this post by calling someone a "clown." Granted, not necessarily vile or vulgar, but still, Mr. Rock doesn't seem to have any sort of problem with name calling in general.
Always a good way to debate, if you ask me.
As a matter of full disclosure, Ask Me Later does not condemn nor encourage name calling, you jerks.
