  •  Dear Giles, Thank you so much for this diary. (3+ / 0-)

    I would not otherwise have known this was happening, b/c our corporate WI media is not reporting it. I hope ridiculous comments like the one above won't dissuade you from keeping fellow Wisconsinites informed with your diaries. I certainly could understand how it might, but I encourage you to keep writing. Of all the WI diarists, I find I look forward to yours the most.

    While I don't have a name for the attitude expressed above, I'd say it's a close cousin to the hubris we see coming from the ignorant wing on the right. It's unfortunate to see in our own party, but there it is. This is the attitude that the right likes to call elitism. I think it's a false label, however. To me it is simple shortsightedness--an inability to see beyond oneself mixed with a dash of poor critical thinking skills. Not so dissimilar to the crazy right we like to bash, it is the achilles heel of our party.

    While pointing out their obvious shortcomings (and I did so appreciate the colorful nature of your reply!) can offer immediate gratification, I think in the long run it doesn't do much to change the troll-like attitudes. Please keep writing for your fellow Wisconsinites. We can't express our gratitude enough!
