OK, this is just hilarious ... (UPDATE)
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, February 20, 2007

After I had a little fun with Carla at Preemptive Karma, she published a rebuttal taking "Paul L" at "Quando" to task something fierce. Boy, Paul, I bet your ears are burning ... BURNING, old buddy!

Uh, Paul? Could you point us to "Quando" so we could see what all the fuss is about?




Good lord woman, if you can't even get the name of the blog or that of the person who wrote the post right, I have wonder if you can get anything right.

Hint: There is no one named "Paul L" who blogs here at QandO.


So much for Carla's 15 minutes of fame.

In case you missed the fun, here's a screen shot of the infamous "Paul" getting lambasted by the ever consistent Carla, who has since discovered the name of the author of the post but still can't figure out the blog's name.

10:14 p.m. Eastern Update (Bryan): Courtesy of Carla, here's your cue to stop wasting your time.

Stop being such a big, warmongering meany, Paul! Leave poor Carla alone, why don’t you! She doesn’t need you all "labelling" her and whatnot. She can do that all by herself, thankyouverymuch!

I’d always fiqured you guys were big Engelbert Humperdinck fans, hence this place’s phonetic name - Quando, Quando, Qando.

I noticed in her comments that no one had disagreed with her post. So I pasted a link to your post.
You got noticed

I should have known that was next. I’m ever so appreciative of Paul—he’s made it so much easier to prove my point.
Opps, looks like she missed a spot

unaha-closp: For those who can’t bring themselves to say "Q & O," there are only a couple of options as I see it.

1. "Since it starts with a Q, there should be a ’u’ right afterward. It’s pronounced ’kwahn-doh’ like the Spanish word for ’when’."

Or, you can take the route I proposed when talking to Jon and Wulf from AtlasBlogged:

2. "Since there’s no ’u’, don’t assume it’s implied. Pronounce it ’kan-doo’ as in, ’He’s got a can-do attitude.’"

I think that’s more fitting for neolibertarians, who want to be proactive in all aspects of politics, including electoral politics. Eh? Sound good?
One of the commenters, displaying an incredible depth of knowledge about our blog, said:
Qando is an idiotic nincompoop, reacting with the typical reichwinger avoidance of the essential points that were part of the original challenge, intent on diverting the criticism to some obscure ether of its own solipsistic origins.
*sigh* With enemies like this...
Another commenter, Becky, said something that caught my eye.
You think that because you are a liberal, one of those other irrationally demonized words.

Personally, it bothers me that the left has allowed the right to get away with this, even to the point of avoiding the word "liberal" altogether and changing to "progressive." It won’t be long and that will be entirely demonized, too. Liberals need to declare war on the war on words.
Hey, libertarians would love to have the word ’liberal’ back now that those who are willing to compromise liberty at the drop of a hat are getting sick of it. It always was a bit tiresome having to modify the word with "classical."

As for ’progressive,’ the word’s a bit pretentious (so, one group has a lock on what constitutes ’progress’ now?), so most of us won’t squabble for it.

Aw heck Paul, now I know who you are ... my apologies and thanks ... that was just too good to be true. ;)

So I take back my claim that we don’t even have a commenter named Paul. He has indeed been an occasional commenter here for quite some time.

"I’m antiwar too, and I’m consistantly appalled at those who aren’t"
I’m consistently appalled at those who take such a naive, childlike approach to the issue. I guess I appall her because I refuse to state that I am absolutely anti-war like she is. There’s plenty of times that war is necessary and called for. If that makes me a war monger, so be it. But to say you’re absolutely anti-war puts a whole meaningful host of options off the table. Being anti-war (or pacifist is another way to say it. By her post, I think I can make that assumption) has consequences as well. Too many "anti-war" people seem to think that only being "pro war" has consequences.

If she’s anti IRAQ, just say so, she shouldn’t make a fool of herself by trying to justify her position on larger moral grounds.

She can’t do that shark ... she’d be "labeling" herself. And if you read her first post, "labeling’, apparently, is a sin from whence she comes.

Well, unless you call someone a ’winger’ or a ’goosestepping moron’. Heck then it’s OK. ;)

Oh I did that with this particular post hours ago. After reading her rebuttal, I was laughing too hard to take anything she had to say seriously. And when I finally was able to read it without laughing, I found nothing of substance to rebut.

As is obvious when you read anything over at the blog in question (and I tried to find something, anything of value there), you find there’s simply no "there there". It’s a very small repeater station in the vast "progressive" echo chamber. Nary a single original thought expressed ... anywhere.

Someone does need to tell her, however, that unsupported denial isn’t a defense or a rebuttal.

But I can’t help one thing ... I am still laughing about poor "Paul".
