Well, well, well. It appears that Dr. Frank Lives has brought the views of Mr. Pure Progressive here to BlueNC. Whoop de fucking doo.
I don't give a rat's ass what Matt Stoller has to say about any issue. Do you want to know why?
Too bad. I'm going to tell you why.
Matt Stoller was the guest speaker at a blogger meetup that the NCDP put together in January of this year. We were all pretty excited about the gathering. It was a chance to talk about the impact we, as part of the new media, could have on political discussions here in North Carolina.
It was held at Democratic Party headquarters in Raleigh.
It was invitation only.
There was assigned seating.
Matt sat at the head of the table with Jerry Meek, James and a few other dignitaries.
Schorr Johnson was the lone NCDP official at the far end of the table.
Do you want to know where the three women and the lone African American bloggers were sitting?
In the back of the room.
Pam Spaulding, Leslie Bland and I were relegated to the far end of the table while all(actually, most) of the white males sat near the front with Matt and the other dignitaries.
Did Matt even notice that the women and the lone minority didn't rate sitting near the head of the table?
Nope. He didn't say a word. Not.one.word.
He probably didn't even notice.
So, when Matt Stoller opens his mouth to preach progressive purity I have only one thing to say to him.
Hypocrite. Stupid freaking (sigh) hypocrite.
