The Bender Post of the Day
You may recall that I was to take part in a debate this week. And you may recall this post from yesterday, which chronicled the trouble I had while trying to engage in said debate.
Obviously, the debate did not go well. I was sort of distracted by the water running across my office floor and the office windows rattling and bending inward every time the ghost of Hurricane Jeanne drew a breath. The moderator of the debate decided to post what little took place. Which is fine, as I told her if that's what she wanted to do, to go ahead. Even though I felt that the ten minutes or so of conversation that transpired between Mr. Pollack makes me come off as flighty and not quite ready for prime time. But I felt as if I had entered into an agreement with the moderator and, as such, I owed her at least that much. Well, thanks (I think) to an Instpundit link, a lot of people actually went and read this "debate" and some of them even took the time to email me to call me some choice words, including liar, idiot, phony, chickenshit and some other things that I won't even bother printing. People believe what they want to believe. I refuse to go take pictures of water damage to my office floor just to prove to some jackass sitting at his computer that I really did have a flood in that room. Did you pay to read this debate? No. So, I owe you nothing. Not an explanation. Not photographic proof. NOTHING. It's a website, people. A little back and forth between two bloggers. If you feel cheated or ripped off, then you need more help than I can give you. You need a life. And if you think for one minute that I am going to apologize to you, well, you should hear me laughing over here. Cackling, even. At you. For the record, I have never backed down from anyone who challenged my opinion in the three plus years I've been blogging. In fact, all my opinions are right here in the archives. All my reasons for voting for Bush are here, too. If you are that desperate to know what goes on inside my chicken little head, do the research yourself. Let me repeat: Get. A. Life. Preferably one that doesn't include harassing bloggers who you perceive to be con artists because they didn't cough up your FREE content when and where you wanted it. And to all those who have called me a liar:
