Finally: A Weak Flame
It took them long enough, but I've finally gotten a little flame from a wingnut blog. It's something called UNCoRRELATED: News, Views and Opinions by the Pretentious for the Dilettants -- no, I don't know why its name is all caps except for the "o", nor do I know why dilettante is spelled without the customary final "e"; other than that the blog seems to be quite aptly named.
Calling the left's call for Rove's head a "liberal wet dream", UNC says, among other things, "One Pissed Off Veteran fulfills prophecy by comparing Rove to Goebbels, calling for imprisonment and of course anal rape. If you hug a liberal--wear gloves."
So, UNC, what's your point?
UNC, an unacknowledged prophet from the planet TFH, also says later on, "Totally ignored of course is the subsequent revelation that yes, Niger was in fact selling yellowcake to Iraq..." Go ahead and follow that link if you want, but contrary to expectation, it does not take you to a citation or another website that will validate that statement. Instead it takes you to another post on his blog where he makes some vague uncited allegations about rumors about yellowcake.
Interestingly enough, he also states early in the entry, "The same emotional state that produced the pogroms, lynching of Blacks in the South, the rape of Nanking and the atrocities of Rwanda are living right here in the hearts of those nice liberals living down the block."
Jeez, UNC, that's some pretty powerful shit you're pushing there. And you have the fucking nerve to criticize me for comparing Karl Rove to Goebbels?????
(And again, I really don't know why he uses a single subject, "state" with a plural verb, "are", but I guess that along with science and logic, the Right is now choosing to eschew "secular grammar".)
But let's give UNC the benefit of the doubt: What if he's right?
If so, then I think that the Administration needs to know about this. If there is actual proof that Niger was, in fact, selling the now-infamous yellowcake to Iraq (uranium, not boxes of Betty Crocker) and Joe Wilson knew about it and covered it up, and the whole WMD-inspired invasion of Iraq was NOT based on a lie, then UNC is failing to do his patriotic duty if he keeps this fact hidden.
Obviously the Bush Administration does not know this; if they did, Little Scotty McWetpants would be bragging it up to the media at every press briefing instead of trying to find a dry corner to hide in.
I can understand why UNC won't cite his sources on his blog -- then everybody would know about it! -- but why he is keeping it a secret from the Bush Adminstration is frankly beyond me.
