The Hayride’s obsession with me and my little blog

The friendly folks at The Hayride seem to be obsessed with me and my little blog.

First, there was this on Tuesday. And now this on Wednesday.Screen Shot 2013-02-27 at 12.07.36 PM

Read it all for yourself, but I rather like the idea of being called “Lord.”

It cost U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany $18,500, but I get mine for free.

In any event, his Lordship appreciates the attention.

    You geaux, Lord Bob! I personally subscribe to the Jimmy Durante theory of publicity. One of Jimmy’s classic signature lines was “What elephant?”

    Those Hayride folks get their panties in a wad over anybody who has a different opinion. You make a very reasonable and provacative argument – which, of course, doesn’t fit with their rabid-dog, borderline tin-foil helmet approach. As a frequent viewer of the Hayride (not by choice) I have been increasingly dismayed at their denigrating rhetoric – often times racist, sexist, and downright insulting. This isn’t the 1st time they have used bully tactics against someone who has a different viewpoint.

    Thanks for keeping the “feud” above the belt. In doing so, you highlight their pettiness.

    I made the serious mistake of taking issue with something on HAYRIDE a long time ago. After posting what I considered a reasonable alternative to HAYRIDE’s position, I was called a jerk and invited to not come back to the site. I have complied with this request and been happy to do so. It is clear, as Ed Watcher says, HAYRIDE has no interest in any position but its own. It welcomes and applauds affirmation of its preconceived notions of reality and completely dismisses contrary views as wrong-minded, or worse. It’s best to simply ignore them because nothing else works.
    As George Bernard Shaw is reputed to have said – “Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.” Let me hasten to add, since I try to avoid name-calling, I am not calling Scott McKay a pig. But Shaw’s point certainly seems relevant when attempting to offer him opinions not in sync with his own.
