commented on Protesters Try to Convince Moviegoers to Skip Zero Dark Thirty
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?

commented on Rand Paul to the Rescue!
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.

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.
