MERYL-LY WE ROLL ALONG: Here's

MERYL-LY WE ROLL ALONG: Here's Meryl Yourish, in an effort to be de-linked, making a variety of "controversial statements":

Strom Thurmond was a racist jerk who should have died a few decades ago. PETA is a stupid, twit-filled organization that harms animal causes more than it helps. Ann Coulter is a lunatic who belongs in an asylum, and manages to cause more harm than good. And listen up, fellasóshe's not hot! You are effing blind if you think that woman is attractive. Ooh, ooh, I know! Rush Limbaugh is a big, fat idiot! Oh, and yes on Roe v. Wade, yes on affirmative action, yes on the war in Iraq, and yes on the War on Terror.

Well, I agree with every single one of those sentiments, so if you're un-blogrolling Meryl, take me off too. Though I suppose I'm yet to get a single de-link from my anti-Strom rant of the other night.
Speaking of which, I've gotten quite a bit of negative reaction to what I said about the late Dixiecrat. I admit that what I posted was written in the heat of the moment, and it was a bit more vicious than what I'm typically capable of writing. Yet I still stand by my original point that Strom Thurmond was not an admirable man, and I thus will not pretend that I'm saddened by his passing.
What's interesting is that many bloggers (including Andrew and Mickey) have chosen to ignore Thurmond's passing altogether. I guess it's the whole "if you can't say something nice..." principle.
