At first, I was so … pissed off? No, more like sad that the infamous Robert Stacy McCain, wingnutter and racist twit, attacked my friend Joe Bageant. Because of course, he’d gotten it all wrong. I know, a wingnut getting it wrong! Who ever heard of such a thing?
Joe was nothing like how he tried to paint him, and more’s the pity that this knucklehead won’t ever know him. (Didn’t even bother to read the book he attacked. That’s wingnuts for ya.)
But then my friend Molly Ivors linked to my piece over at Atrios’ place, and I realized something important when I looked at my stats: 352 from Eschaton, 8 from The Other McCain.
Nice to know the market for racist pseudo-Christian misogyny grows ever smaller.
