Rightwing bloggers sucketh the mostest

I've seen links to this survey reviewed on several blogs. James Joyner offered his normal measured thoughts:

Further, as I’ve discussed perhaps ad nasuem in posts over the past five plus years, most blogs are frankly unreadable by those not sympathetic to the point of view of the author. This holds true even when one excludes the 90-plus percent of political blogs that are unreadable, period. Few people have an appetite for being rudely insulted on a regular basis, having their intelligence, decency and patriotism questioned.

Of course, the lefty blogs are, once again, having a orgasm over more proof as to their inherent superiority and open-mindedness. Such irrationality used to irritate me, but now it simply bores me. The fact that the sun will rise in the east is less predictable. Anyway, I'll let Ace have the final word:

As I've said before, the rightwing blogosphere is the leftwing blogosphere's MSM. They can't really critique the media, because they know it's very leftwing and they don't wish to undermine it all that much. They count on the MSM to deliver their messaging for them. So instead they attack the MSM's harriers, the rightwing blogs, the rightwing blog commenters.

But, of course, the left is once again very, very impressed with itself for... well, pretty much anything at all. These people don't take a wet shit without gazing wistfully at their highly nuanced discharge.

New to the blogroll

Readers of this humble blog are aware of my dimwitted approach to adding people to my blogroll, wherein I've read someone's stuff for so long that Firefox and IE auto-complete the URL but somehow never noticed that I hadn't managed to actually, umm, add him/her to the blogroll. Case in point: Kathy Shaidle.

I was certain that I'd added her to my blogroll long ago. Apparently, I'm borderline retarded. Anyway, consider that problem rectified.

Worth 1000 words

This political cartoon pretty much sums it up:

Excessive timewaster

So Blizzard release Diablo III in the not too distant future. I forsee much wasted time in my future. Excerpt:

Even though Diablo, Mephisto and Baal were slain in Diablo II, Tristam is again under siege by evil creatures that players will have to eliminate. The game is being designed to focus more on cooperative play instead of soloing through the world.
There will be five different classes in Diablo III, with the barbarian class making a comeback, using Cleave, Ground Stomp, Seismic Slam and Whirlwind. A new class will be made, Witch Doctor, who will be able to use ancient tribal magic to help slay enemies. He'll be able to use Mass Confusion, Soul Harvest, Firebomb, LocustSwarm and Horrify while also having abilities similar to the Necromancer from Diablo II, such as summoning pets.

Deckard Cain, a central figure in the first two games, will make a triumphant comeback into Diablo III, though his specific role is unknown.

At least we don't have to kill that frigging blacksmith again. I bought tons of stuff from him in Diablo and how did the little bastard repay me? He turned into a demon monster in D2. I fixed his sorry ass.

Yeah, I know: me and 50 gazillion other people did, too
