Remember how frustrating it has been over the last eight years to speak to obstinate Baby Bush supporters, the twenty-three percent of Americans who still approve of the guy? Hillary has her own twenty percent crowd as well that is driving me insane.
They are quite easy to spot and they are always the same people with the same tired attacks. They post the kind of stuff that instantly makes you utter epithets to an empty room. Since speaking to some “Hillary” supporters is like pounding yourself in the head with a hammer, there comes a day when you realize that it only feels good only when you stop.
This is me stopping.
I done responding to idiotic blogs and comments. Most are either willfully (painfully) ignorant or purposely designed to stir up shit or are the product of stupidity so profound that no efforts on my part would ever make a bit of difference.
I asked for an “ignore” button which would have made it easier to manage such stupidity wholesale. Since I can’t get an automatic tool, I will to do it manually. I may not always resist the urge to correct bullshit, at least on my own blog posts, but I think I can resist commenting if someone else has already debunked it.
The main reason I need to not comment to certain threads is that I find it increasingly difficult to be civil with these people. I would love nothing better than to unleash both barrels, but understand that does nothing for the long-term goals of seeing Barack elected and succeed as president.
I am beyond done trying to ignore their crap or take the high road or mend bridges with morons. That is Obama’s gig. I am a filmmaker and a writer – I don’t have the same constraints. In fact, I would submit my job description actually requires the exact opposite of restraint. It would be a lot more fun too.
My mother gave me the admonition about having nothing nice to say, so this should explain why I will choose to say nothing at all to some people on this site moving forward.
