Helpless Michael Hussey, of the very poor Florida blog "Pushing Rope" has joined Pandagon in giving up, though via a different strategy.
Hussey just posts out of ignorance, such as claiming that Bush's Social Security reform plan gave young people a choice between private pensions and social security in an either/or manner. Then he turns into a punching-bag in the commentary section, alternating between pathetically inept replies and total avoidance of the subject.
Hussey recently joined some other liberal bloggers in trotting out a chart that marked job gains by the yearly percentage (averaged), where the the data ended in the year 2004. Thus, he sought to make the aftermath of the sagging tail-end of the Clinton economy and the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks representative of Bush's economic policies. That's nothing less than lying with statistics, since it is a deceitful practice at its core.
I took Hussey to task over it, and rather than defend his actions he played the game of (first) claiming that his graph had struck a nerve--I averred that lying bloggers strike a nerve with me--and then by claiming that I can't quit his blog (reference to "Brokeback Mountain" perhaps influenced by his blogging on disgraced Republican representative Mark Foley).
I told Michael to remind me again in three weeks how I can't quit his blog.
I don't have time to waste on pathetic characters like that. Or at least I choose not to. :)
Michael's blog will rank in the lower depths of bad blog hell. The space dedicated to these losers will be Bad Blogs' Blood in honor of black bugs' blood.
