Firing up the Memory Hole

Dallas Progress is up in the air about Imus again. He decided not to go with his original plan — try to raise another manufactured distraction in an attempt to ruin Imus’ career and silence him permanently.

I am calling on my political blogger nation (and we are deep, believe me) to put an end to Don Imus’ career, once and for all. The nationwide political blogger groups should be called into action.

Thankfully for, you know, peaceful political discourse between peers, he was persuaded to back down a bit.

It seems that the prevailing attitude is to ignore Imus and render him irrelevant.

This is exactly why I wanted to bounce this off of my nationwide people. To get a perspective.

Note that the response wasn’t, “let’s refute his ideas with logic and reason.” The plan is to still keep the ideas from being disseminated — just by whistling past the graveyard instead of, you know, destructive and foul politics of economic assassination.

But he wanted perspective, so I left him a comment that generally said, “if you want perspective, my first thought was, ‘you see someone make a comment that you don’t like, and your first instinct was to try to ruin his career to silence him? That tells me tons about you.'” I say “generally” rather than quoting my comment because it never made it out of moderation.

So, that’s the reasoned discourse that happens over there. Perhaps I should refrain from posting this lest Michael Davis decide to try to destroy my career to shut me up permanently. That seems to be his preferred method of personal interaction.

    OK, Mikie, you’re a bad-ass.

    Does this guy have the faintest clue regarding his moronicity? I’ve never heard of him and I blogged in Dallas for five years. I am calling on my political blogger nation??? Really? Was it an Important Action Alert? If not, maybe that’s why it failed.

    5-2 he’s tangled up in that Rufus Shaw business. What a tool.
