Peace, love, and limited government

Good idea from Roger:

Name three bloggers who tend to be the opposite of you politically, yet of whom you remain a fan nevertheless.

There’s more than three. Off the top of my head:

R. Neal: Read him since he was South Knox Bubba. Always insightful and well-researched and thought-provoking writing. We agree more than we disagree but when we disagree, we do so drastically and politely. Some of the other posters at Knoxviews grate me but not Mr. Neal.

Aunt B.: My thoughts on Aunt B. are, I think, very similar to her thoughts on me. For me, she lead to an epiphany I had about feminists. See, I used to think they are all fucking nuts. It’s true, every one. And the reason for that was whenever I read about them it was some whacko who used the word womyn or was screaming at someone to get out of their uterus or some other maniacal horseshit. Aunt B. let me know they weren’t all fucking crazy. Sure, some are but some make sense and present their ideas without all the she-man-men-haters-flannel-shirt-wearing crap. Conversely, I convinced Aunt B. that we gun nuts weren’t all crazy either and that we were right about a lot of shit. Plus, Aunt B. is just damn entertaining reading.

A full 2/3rds of Leanleft: Three flavors of liberal: mild, regular and extra crispy. I have conducted epic rhetorical battle in their comments section taking Tom and Kevin to task for their, err, inconsistencies. They’ve returned the favor by doing the same to me. And we do it civilly.

Now, if you ain’t scared, here’s another meme for you: Name three bloggers who tend to concur with politically, yet you cannot stand them.

    I can come up with two, Misha and LGF. I quit reading them because I just got tired of their shtick more than anything else.

    I feel like I should say that, as a product of the grunge era, I do sometimes like to rock the flannel-shirt look. But never while man-hating.

    Am feminist. Do like my flannel shirts. With earrings and bracelets.

    […] like reading Aunt B. I wrote about why I do, even though we’re political opposites. But I take issue with this: Who Does Kay Brooks Hate More–Men or […]
