Much as I hate to add to the echo chamber — a political blogger writing about a political blogger taking shots at yet another political blogger who’s defended by etc. — conservative former newspaperman and Whacky Nation blogger Lou Guzzo blasted contemporary colleague David Postman recently.
Postman’s crime: a three-paragraph item pointing out that contrary to Guzzo’s assertion that no true conservative or Republican would back the state’s new “rainy day fund” budget savings account, the measure was backed by Guzzo friend and GOP gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi, as well as every Republican lawmaker in the legislature.
For noting this, Guzzo is calling on Postman’s bosses to discipline him, apparently including firing him.
All of which prompted a lengthy, point-by-point defense from Effin’ Unsound blogger thehim. From it:
…So let’s recap. Lou says that the “Rainy Day Fund” is a terrible idea that no sane conservative could support. Postman then points out that Rossi and all the Republicans in the state legislature support it. Ergo, Postman is a Socialist propagandist…for simply stating a fact. Wow.
