Let the Hippie Bashing Begin!

“The Obama campaign’s point person in New Mexico recently sent an email to supporters defending the president’s position on the debt deal and bashing the Nobel Prize winning New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and the ‘Firebagger Lefty blogosphere.'” [HuffPo]


The problem is that Krugman is right. Much like he was about the stimulus not having enough money for projects rather than tax cuts for people who had too much money.

As for hippies whomping, well, they’re a bit too shrill even for me.

Look, there are segments of the left that I can’t fucking stand. Like, say, Medea (SUSAN! YOUR FUCKING NAME IS SUSAN!) Benjamin. (I’m sorry. People can call themselves what they want. But the shrooms she was on when she picked Medea must have been world class. She killed her kids to spite her lover, so he wouldn’t go and find another — NO, NO MEDEA, NO!)

But all of the caving and compromising, with people who will never be happy? That, to a caring observer, seems weak, and disappointing.

@ManchuCandidate: I don’t have much love for FDL, but hippie-bashing is an electoral strategy — and by “hippies” you may include anybody a half-step to the left of Dear Leader.

Tacking to the mushy center… oh joy.

@nojo: Makes no sense to further alienate Krugman – or his acolytes. He’s the one op-ed guy with academic, Nobel and tweed-jacket cred that every slacker reads at least glances at.

Dja see what Krugman wrote today, dude is awe-sum” is overheard more often in coffee shops than “I said soy chai latte, man” or “Gawd, not Mumford and Sons again“.

When did the hippie bashing end? Hippie bashing is always in season.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That:

Reminds me of Bloom County’s hunt for the wild liberal.

“No Nukes!”

I resent the use of the modifier “Firebagger” before my name.

I’ve never sucked a ginger’s balls.

@SanFranLefty: aaaand, we have a winner in the Flying Chainsaw Approved Meme category!1!1

ADD: Tommie, send in the Milkmen.

@Nabisco: /blushing/

If not a FCS-approved meme, if nothing else, a new tagline for swag at the Stinqueria pending Nojo getting hooked up with indie bookstores to get the popcorn and beer income rolling in like it did in the days of Wine and Roses and Amazon.
