While I Think About It
Acton's going on about how he's willing to let me 'squeek,' to use his term, yet he still hasn't let my comment about how the CNN.com poll that he cites is bunkus (both because it's an internet poll, and also because it asks an irrelevant and misleading question) surface on his blog. I hadn't mentioned it here earlier, mostly because I was getting tired of flogging that particular horse. Though, when Acton sidles up and says "Thank you sir, may I have another?" who am I to refuse?
Of course, he made his gracious gesture while decrying me as a Politically Correct Democratic partisan apparatchik, as opposed to a man of his spotless, sterling character.
Excuse me while I retch.
I also find Acton's decision to pick on me on the front page of his blog to be a bit odd. I mean, yes, I do host the best/only timeline of events for the controversy outside the report of the DI's student task force (which I wouldn't mind seeing, by the way), which might be doing something to hinder his PR strategies. I also admit that I've been rather vocal, here and elsewhere, about being unimpressed with his self-inflicted tale of woe. But really, if Acton considers me a site troll, the blogosphere-standard reaction is to either ignore them, let one's commenters handle them, disemvowel/dialectize their comments, or at the very worst delete their comments entirely. One doesn't give them more attention by putting posts up on the front page of the blog - unless one is either an idiot or trying to continue a theme of being victimized by "the man" or some such nonsense. Or both - I could see both being true as well.
In any case, I'm not impressed.
