The reaction to this has been a fascinating thing to watch, on both sides. Maybe I’m just Old-School, but it’s not exactly shocking to me that there are Left-blogosphere sites that will start screaming at the drop of a hat; this used to happen all the time, you know. It’s just that the Left-Sphere has been long since gelded into being cheer/yell leaders for the Democratic Establishment, and the Right-Sphere has long since graduated to going after the Democratic Establishment.
For some reason, this just seems to be the epitome of it all:
Forty bucks for a two hour debate? Dear God but these people are pikers: try one thousand per hour, Sparky, topic set in advance, and keep your hands off of the mute button. Assuming that I even feel like accepting that, either: after all, it might interfere with my election coverage.
PS: :shrug: If you don’t think that I’m worth that, then don’t pay me. Just don’t pretend that I’m cheap.
PPS: I do want to take the time to note that if it weren’t for RedState itself this would never have come up. I am very fortunate to have a big, honking megaphone – and making that megaphone was a collaborative effort.
PPPS: But if you feel like merely rewarding me I wouldn’t say no.
