shut up Shut Up SHUT UP

As much as I profit from, find necessity in, and even enjoy the process of reading and refuting right-wing crazies, even I get sick of it once in a while. Every so often, there's some self-impressed, cliche-spewing blowhard who goes on and on and on at such length (never, of course, making a point worth addressing) that I just throw up my hands and say "GOD JUST SHUT UP ALREADY!".

Such is the case with this interminable column by bow-tied masturbator Roger Kimball. There's really no reason for you to read it; it's just more "white Anglo-Saxons made this country great but our achievements are being marginalized by self-hating liberal multiculturalists" boilerplate, only exceptional because of its great length. I provide it here for one reason only: a lot of you say to me, 'I don't know how you can stand to read that shit', and I wanted to provide you with an example of something so dull and pointless that even I can't really find anything to say about it.

While I'm on the subject, here's something that annoys the fuck out of me as regards to conservatives:

1. The only person who has ever studied the sociology of American democracy is Alexis de Tocqueville.
2. The only thing Martin Luther King Jr. ever said was that "content of their character" bit.

Seriously, I would give up, say, Noam Chomsky forever if conservatives agreed to stop quoting exclusively as their single source about the nature of American democracy and culture a French guy who has been dead for a hundred and fifty years.
