HA HAyou can't stop Blogging!!It's in your blood, you INVENTED Bloging, Dammit!!
Do I still have hair in the future?If so, where?
Karl: fortunately, yes.Unfortunately, mostly on your back.
In the future Berube actually reads responses to comments he's made instead of going off in a huff. Because of this he knows that most people regard anyone with an Ivy League degree, scholarship kids or not, as part of the elite, especially if they went on to get PhDs. He wonders how he could have thought that having the most advanced degree that society can bestow on a person does not qualify him as being part of the elite.
Summerisle -- narcissism much? I responded to you twice. Then I went back to my day job, grading papers at the end of a busy semester.The problem with your incoherent followups wasn't that you defined me as part of the "elite." The problem was that you kept moving the goalposts. When I pointed out that Alexander Cockburn believes that global warming is a hoax, you replied that (a) I'm only going after Cockburn because of Afghanistan-Chomsky-etc. and that (b) Cockburn distrusts mainstream liberalism, so somehow his stupid-assery is all right. You then suggested that I was trying to delegitimate Cockburn as a critic of the war, just like the "elite" did to the "rabble" w/r/t Vietnam. All that, pal, is arrant nonsense: Cockburn has written many stupid essays on global warming, and the sooner you come to terms with that, the better off you'll be. And the idea that Cockburn is a member of the "rabble" is beyond foolish, and I said so -- at which point you decided to argue that everyone involved here is a member of the elite. Additionally, you decided that it was OK for Cockburn to say that Afghanistan deserved to be raped, because, hell, it was 27 years ago.I'm curious about what drives people to become camp followers of writers like Cockburn. But I'm just not interested in visiting your blog anymore, because you're not arguing in anything like good faith. Sorry, my friend. Be well.
