WWWtW-Watch #19: Of Silk Purses and the Ears of Sows

Dedicated to the proposition that it can happen here.

It has been some weeks since I've directed your attention to the ravings of our would-be masters over at What's Wrong With the World. But since we're on the fascinating topic of Gov. Sarah Palin and the wisdom of her selection as the vice presidential candidate of the GOP, I thought you might find it amusing to see the lengths to which the crypto-fascist/politico-religious right is forced to go to defend that selection. Here they even bring the Obamamomma into it. Tsk.
It should be noted, by anyone who is buying the constant refrain wafting from the camp of the forces of reaction, that our colleges and universities have been ruined by leftists, that the core authorial cabal of WWWtW are academics; academics, and manifestly not so very bright...

I didn't know you were doing this little project: WWWtW-Watch.

Nice. My favorite posts of theirs:

1. Lydia's essay on how married people should all wear wedding rings.

2. People with children should be paid more. I forget the author.

I think you had started this column after them, but wow, those were crazy essays.

I like Maximos' commentary. Stylistically, it's slightly over-written. But I'll forgive that for high-quality, thought-provoking and engaging content.

Just about all the site's social commentary, in my brutal opinion, is a glorified whine.

Thanks for dropping by. I do less and less WWWtW-Watch posts as time goes by, because I forget to go over and see what they're up to. I started doing them after they banned me from their site.
Still it is an exercise that amuses me when I can remember to do it.
I agree with your "glorified whine" assessment, btw.
