Truly one of the most uninformed and clueless posts of all time. I miss Norm....

What happened to Norm?

Banned again?

He meant Norm, not Norman. Norm passed away.

Thanks for that illumination, Brian. I was under the distinct impression that Mr. Messinger had passed away a considerable time before P-Dog arrived on the scene, thus my confusion.

For all you people who think the other people don't know what you're talking about, forget the others and focus on me. I don't know what you're talking about. No need to fill me in, either. Just scoff.

Perldog's opening put-down was so utterly devoid of content that no conclusion as to whether he read the article or not is possible. If we take his or her word about reading it, then we must conclude that the problem is either a deliberate refusal or a complete inability to communicate any content. Either conclusion is supportable from the available data.

Andrew and Keith, thank you for the timely reminders that variations on how populist fascism depends on using the frustrations of and further victemizing the lower middle class.

If you would pull your head out of your butt, you might not jump to the mistaken conclusion that I hadn't read the wiki on poujade or didn't know who he was.
