re: #56 wrenchwench

This comment is an interesting view of that dynamic.

I come to it from a somewhat different perspective. I found the Lizards, even as early as 2007 or so, very interesting, and liked Charles’ articles and links, but found the commentariat as a whole horrifyingly smug, intolerant, and obsessed with the evil and stupidity of liberals. (This is not to say that anyone here now was ever like that folks, please remain calm.)

I joined because it was a safe place on the Internet for a battered Israel supporter.

Watching the election was like watching people go insane. I had first thought it would be very interesting to observe an election from a mostly Republican viewpoint, not something I get in my daily life, but people were, as far as I could tell, losing their ever-loving minds.

And then things started to shift, rather quickly.
