commented on Charles Krafft Sat Down and Wrote a Coon Song About Charles Mudede
Jen I don't agree with any of the hand wringing in your original article.
A couple of facts:
1) The guy is clearly an idiot.
2) The guy is promoting repugnant ideas.
3) Nothing he did was that great to begin with.
His place is with Ted Nugent and Ayn Rand. Not actual artists.

I'm glad for this win. I gave to his campaign in 2008, and hopefully he learned something from his loss in 2010 which was entirely his own fault.
In case you forgot, he ran a really misleading ad in 2010 which quoted his opponent totally out of context which was widely rebuked even on the left. (Including being called out on the Daily Show and Colbert Report.)

Wait, wait, wait. So horrible shit like that isn't supposed to bother me because I'm straight? So I can't empathize with her nephew or be aghast at her bigotry?
Come on. This is stupid. This has more to do with your personal ability to deal with interacting with a horrible person who is saying shit that bothers you than it does whether you are gay or straight yourself.

This is some really fucking meaningless statistics.
You might as well point out that teenagers are online more than their parents. Oh man! That means what exactly? Nothing because they're spending it all on reddit and Facebook.
We're two decades past the point where "How many people are online?" was an interesting metric.
