Our old friend Pat has moved his blog from politicalbyline.com to Blogspot, calling his new blog Thoughts and Rantings (one out of two ain’t bad). And he seems to have it in for Ann Coulter, criticizing her for saying that she would prefer Ron Paul to Newt Gingrich with his usual class and grace:
Coulter flips her cork…..again. Must be the new boyfriend or something. All those orgasms going to her brain, I guess.
Amusingly, Pat announced that he was done blogging, which I’m sure was crushing to the four people who read it, with his standard incoherence:
This is not something that I actually enjoy writing. However, it is time to face facts and just do the right thing. I have been thinking about this for a long time, after writing about politics for six years; for one as a left of center populist type and then for five as a right of center populist type, it is time to hang it up and quit.
This is because I have become so cynical. The entire Tea Party movement was a horrible joke; there was never any intention by the Republican Party to heed the calls of the Tea Party for no more business as usual. The Republican Party is now running a bunch of establishment candidates; even Bachmann is not as “Tea Party” type as some people might believe. She is totally beltway as they come, believe me.
In addition, Blogging has reached the zenith of its cycle. The only people still blogging, are people who are professionals. There is just no room for traditional Conservative voices like mine anymore…
I was going to quit when my blog Politicalbyline.com went down; but my Mother suggested to me that I continue writing and that I shall, just not on a blog anymore. I will be submitting various editorials to some websites that I happen to enjoy reading and have wanted to contribute to for a long time. This blogging adventure was a fun one, while it lasted. I, again, have just become too cynical for it. I despise hypocrisy and I am seeing it on full display in the Republican Party.
Sure, that makes sense. He’s become too cynical to write on his blog, so instead he’s going to submit articles to other blogs. But then he had a change of heart:
All right people, here is the deal. I realize that I said that I was done blogging and to be quite honest with you, I wish I were done writing about politics. However, I need to do something. I am getting slothful in my downtime here. Besides all that, many of you, not very many, but enough of you —- did read my writings on the other blog. Because of this and because I can promote the thing on twitter and other social outlets, I can get some sort of readership here…
I will try to write everything in MS-Word and try to sound like I have a thread of common sense between my ears. One of my biggest failings as a blogger was that I relied on my own ability to write things freehandedly, which made me sound like an idiot at times. However, I will not apologize for my political stances. I will offend some I cannot change that; but what I can change is the perception of me as a person.
He appears to have a rose-colored mirror. You don’t sound like an idiot becuase you wrote things “freehandedly” (which sounds a lot like strategery); you sound like an idiot because you are, in fact, an idiot.
