Bottom-feeder Ted Rall takes aim at bloggers

Notoriously and hopelessly moronic moonbat cartoonist (and I use the term "cartoonist" loosely) Ted Rall has now taken aim at bloggers in general, and Captain Ed of Captain's Quarters in particular.

Bloggers want you to know that there's a new sheriff in town. Edward Morrissey, writer of the right-wing blog Captain's Quarters, boasts to the New York Times: "The media can't just cover up the truth and expect to get away with it--and journalists can't just toss around allegations without substantiation and expect people to believe them anymore." And what are Morrissey's qualifications to police the media? When he's not harassing old-school journos like Dan Rather and CNN's Eason Jordan out of their jobs, Morrissey manages a call center near Minneapolis.

Bloggers are ordinary people, many of them uneducated and with nothing interesting to say. They're sitting in their rec rooms, regurgitating and spinning what real journalists have dug up through hard work. They don't have sources, they don't report, and no one holds them accountable when they make mistakes or flat out lie. Yeah, there's a new sheriff in town. Unfortunately he's drunk, he's mean, and he works for the bad guys.

Rall continues to excoriate bloggers -- of course sticking to those of us who are ideologically on the right, and admonishes us for death threats against him (without providing any supporting links or references), and calling us a new McCarthy-ite lynch mob.

I hope you'll excuse me if Rall's credibility is not among the highest in the world.

Captain Ed takes Rall the moonbat to the woodshed and gives him an intellectual beating to try to pound some sense into his head.

He draws cartoons -- badly -- and expresses opinions similarly. I don't pay much attention to him as a rule, as he generally makes almost no sense whatsoever, and this column is a perfect example.

(Rall) expected bloggers to exist only to agree with his radical beliefs. Of course, that's Rall's idea of free speech. He can criticize anyone he likes, including me, but when people criticize Eason Jordan for making unsubtantiated allegations of assassination strategies about our military, all of a sudden it's McCarthyism.

Rall doesn't really even have enough of a connection to reality to enrage; he just provides amusement, like a crazy old uncle locked in his rec room, typing and muttering about all of the people out to get him. Too bad he's not important enough for it, and that he doesn't even know it.

Go, Captain Ed, go! I couldn't have said it better myself.

Michael, thanks for the link. As both you and I can agree, there is absolutely something wrong with Ralls ability to reason.

Why would anyone other than vermin want to swim in Rall's vomit?
