it's all a matter of perspective
I always find it curious when people come here and rip into me for ripping into others. This happens most when I make fun of celebrities. Why the defense of these people? Are they held in higher regard than say, our president, who is made fun of daily on almost all the blogs of the people who say I shouldn't make fun of celebrities?
Oh, and sometimes they make fun of celebrities, too. Just not the ones who belong to the "not in our name" club.
Anytime someone leaves a comment here such as "who are you to piss in their cheerios," or "how dare you stomp on someone's right to express an opposing opinion to yours," just click on the link to that person's blog.
Rest assured, you will find plenty of posts calling Bush "Shrub," calling right wing warbloggers idiots or yahoos or assholes, and even on a non political level, making fun of various singers or entertainers or writers for their opinions on matters of their given industry.
So let me see if I get this straight. It's ok to make fun of celebrities and politicians as long as you are the one doing it. It's not ok for others to do it, especially if they are dissenting from an opinion that you yourself hold in high regard.
Am I close?
