Spank That Donkey Called Me a Democrat?????

The SWAC vs. Whackjob feud continues, and I posted some more thoughts on SWAC over there. I'm managing to keep a pretty even keel on this, since I do have ideological similarities to some of the SWACers.

But Spank That Donkey called me a friggin' Democrat! I'm insulted! I'm feeling downright indignant about this!!!

Actually, I'm a bit amused, if not slightly aggravated.

Ok, he didn't necessarily call ME a Democrat, he called everyone who posted at Whackjob a Democrat. What he didn't realize (or intentionally forgot), is that out of 6 contributors at DWJ, 3 of them are conservatives (2 Republicans and 1 Independent, which is me).

What I think STD fails to realize is that conservatives/Republicans don't all fall into the apparent definition of "conservative" that STD has laid out.

STD states that the CASTLE bloggers are fighting for the heart and soul of the Republican Party. I'm beginning to think that if these people are going to label ME as a Democrat, simply because I don't agree with their tactics...maybe I should become a Republican, and make the party move to me...instead of moving to the party.

Spank That Donkey, you really should watch what you say...calling me a Democrat is like calling Mike Gravel quiet and soft-spoken. We're supposed to be on the same side of the ideological divide, so why do you (among others) want to ostracize good conservatives?

You're just trying to make something out of nothing...

However, you are known by the company that you keep... (DWJ)

I mean seriously, you go to the Republican Advance, and tell someone you are a blogger, and they say oh, what blog?

The Daily Whack Job!

No, I'd say "Now At The Podium" and I contribute to "The Daily Whackjob."

I'm known by the company I keep...really? That's interesting, considering I've had a lot of CASTLE and ODBA bloggers on my blogroll since I started this little corner of the web.

How am I making something out of nothing when you accused me of being something that I am not?

Remember, Phil, if you call a liar a liar you are just stirring up a controversy for hits.

Mr. Donkey, I'm proud to be part of DWJ. It's ok to blog with people you don't always agree with. It's even ok to like them.
