Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Rall: Blogs Bad, Terrorists Abused
by Bonjo
Ted Rall, the "Brainless Journalistic Wonder" has spoken out against bloggers denouncing blogs in general as "borg-like GOP drones" (my paraphrase).

Ironically, Rall finds it necessary to defend terrorists while railing against bloggers--perhaps he sees a connection between terrorism and the left wing media that we bloggers have yet to uncover.

In a most desperate attempt at self preservation, Rall lumps himself with the award winning journalists from Al Jazeera (Al Jazeera: We Distort, You Comply!):

Two more Al Jazeera journalists reported being tortured by U.S. troops last year; another has been rotting in the Guantánamo concentration camp since 2001.
His use of the term "concentration camp" could be well disputed. I don't remember hearing about people gaining weight at Auschwitz from eating three hot meals a day. Nonetheless, the point Ted misses: if Al Jazeera didn't pander to and employ terrorists, those guys wouldn't have been in Guantanamo (or U.S. custody in the first place). Ever consider that, Teddy?

I now return to my capitalist endeavors.
