@ 2 -- Uncle Mike's is so dope. Best BBQ in the city by far. Lovely sides, lovely sweet tea, lovely owner.

I was most struck by the fact that Steinbrueck can barely read aloud. The only thing that wasn't monotone about it was his blackvoice. The only thing that was fluent about it was...well, none of it.

This mindless snark is not becoming on you, Paul.

Black people must be Democrats and constitute "the help."

Seattle: where white people go to live in a big city without black people while simultaneously claiming they are not racist!

I have never agreed this much with Fnarf. Well said, Fnarf!

Paul, it seems like you went into this movie already convinced of how you needed to come out of it because that is how the chattering classes have deemed we must come out of it: able to interpret it your own way, not overtly pro-torture but a little off. I've heard the script before.

You're an educated guy who has probably already read a couple of longform pieces about the bin Laden raid. You also know a lot about the "war on Terror." And yet even you came away from it saying, "Well, it's not exactly anti-torture, but it probably isn't pro, either."

Now what do you think a high school boy thinking about joining the military is going to think when he sees waterboarding (A) followed by killing bin Laden (B)?

Get real. It is uncomfortable to admit it, but you are on board with this. You voted for tough guy Obama and now you're endorsing this movie while simultaneously dissing people who actually care. Caring is so not Seattle, after all. Who would waste a night dressing up in a jump suit to protest something when there is good media to consume?

I love how if you follow that "Rand Paul is a white supremacist" link, the #1 reason they give is that he is friends with Alex Jones--and they then proceed to admit Alex Jones is not a white supremacist.

Cool use of words, guys! Ad hominems are mature!

If I wanted to explain Seattle with one website, I'd probably just print out this comments thread. What a bunch of butthurt whiners Seattleites can be!

I love Charles for posts like this one. He is a radical truthteller with a strong, consistent point of view. You can't like him when he is incessantly making fun of "Rmoney" and talking about the diversity of South Seattle and then despise him when he writes a post like this. They are all products of the same consistent mind.

If this is the best spokesman No can put forward, they deserve to lose. Congratulations, you can put together a bunch of unconnected ad hominems.

I don't often say it, but I really wish Paul was liking this ironically.

There is nothing cool about crapping on another person's free speech. Yes, these people suck. Shout them down. Show them how they are wrong. Destroying their signs is below even their level.
Aug 31, 2012 mattluby commented on The Stranger Was Wrong About the Danielson-Gonzalez Race, by Matt Luby.
@ Cienna -- That was really nice! The feelings were mutual. I've often said that it wasn't the case that just one writer at The Stranger was better than anyone I'd ever worked with but that all of you guys were. I loved it!
