shorter comments on political** blogs everywhere:
OMG, did you hear what he just said?!?
Wait, listen. You're quoting it outta context.
I've been watching X for X years and know that this is exactly the sort of thing he always says. If you were as wise as I am, you would have known he'd go there. I'll spend a day researching, and dig up this old statement..
What he said was just wrong! And now, infuriated and frustrated, I'm going to say something even more outrageous and stupid.
OMG! Did you just say that? Did you go there? I'm never reading this blog again.
Now everyone, just take a deep breath and --
SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP
............ten minutes pass. Nothing actually happens. However, someone somewhere says something stupid.
OMG, did you hear what she just said?!?
** or gossip blogs, or writer blogs, or fan blogs or . . . . It's just that political blogs are so very serious because they do run the world, or close enough.
