Re: <nettime> Wisconsin report

Left, right, progressive, Tea Party, stooges? WTF? Are you 
idiots? OK, so that is a requirement of ideological conviction.
And comforting chants and epithets, too. Now, you've blown
your nose and sphincter, offer a bit of argument. OK, that's
asking too much. Then a bit of humor about yourself and me
and our shallow convictions. Sarcastic ridicule is swell 
inspiration. This all-too-serious gravitas, cliche alert, is 
destroying the funhouse of democracy. Pretend you are a 
really serious ideologue bristling with outrage at the other 
ideologues threatening sacred democracy, i.e, union perqs. 
Cluck cuckoo.

Awaiting are a huge wad of infected sanctimonies begging 
lancing by wit, dim and lit. Bite the bait.
