More Tar-and-Feathers from Hill Readers

More than a thousand comments came in on my Hill oped on how the U.S. government conned more voters in 2016 than the Russians did. Once again, my efforts were not fully suasive with all readers.  Maybe next time?   Among the accolades:  freakin’ jerk, hapless klutz, rightwingnut-Republican-posing-as-libertarian,  “this Brovard dude is so not right,” troll,  libertarian hack,  bullshit, one of Putin’s fav buttbuddies, cockamamie, stupidest opinion piece yet, lunacy, blowhard,  garbage, Russian propaganda, right-wing shill…..   And the most piercing comment: “This guy is not even good at deflection.”   But at least some folks are recognizing my stuff, as shown by the “ew. Not this moron again” review.


And, from Joe Pike, the funniest comment on the piece:

    It’s like a Twilight Zone story…as if everyone has had their mind taken over and have lost the ability or will for inquisitive critical thought.

      Thanks for the comment, Martha. I think back to those halcyon days when people expected easy Internet access to hard facts to raise the level of political discourse…

    Martha is like so unwrong. I say that with a cadence in my voice that makes the statement sound like a question.

    “This Bovard dude is so not right.” It’s like he knows you!

    Not much in the way of left, either.

    And “center” is right out.

      But the spelling was different in the original outtake…

    No less than I expected. I have to agree with Martha:

    “You see them sometimes walking around blindly, with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.”

      That’s a hoot from Bob Hope. Nowadays, that riff would generate 10,000 angry comments with dubious spelling.
