I've responded to your post below.
: I'm going to stop before I start sounding like a patriot. I want to say that I like you, Lark. You seem like an interesting cat, and I enjoy a lot of your posts. But a very high percentage of them look like this one, which is a childish embarrassment to the Left.
What left? Your speaking as though the left is you and your buddies it isnt, if I'm an embarrasment to you then fine but dont pretend your the 'the left'.
: You should start doing more thinking before you post, Lark, especially in your spats with Stoller. He's been wiping the floor with you lately.
Surprise, surprise a pan-strollerist.
Are my posts aggrivating because I have no aspiration to pretensious psuedo-intellectualism or snobbery?
Or because I dont put out the same things time and again like some machine or jesuit quoting his favourite biblical quote?
: Strained, but with all friendliness possible,
Let's make it clear, I dont want to fall out over this and I havent tried to be agressive or malicious in this post but I'm not going to temper my views with the kind of convention and 'form' that some people would, like, alright I see no reason for out right malicious behaviour or getting to heated but I dont think this is an academic or British conservative elite club either.
