Right Wing Gotcha! Players

What do the blogs at Cross Currents, Michelle Malkin and the National Review Online have in common? They are all Right Wingers and they all love to play the game of Gotcha!


What is the game of Gotcha!? It's the game where you get your enemy or opponent on some technicality. CC and MM love to review ad nauseum how they caught the media lying and misrepresenting the facts. CC is crowing about how the Jewish Week "distorted" the news about the synagogue on the upper West Side of Manhattan that hired a woman rabbi. Those guys can prove that it really isn't an Orthodox synagogue. Gotcha!

MM goes on and on about the "fauxtography" that bloggers uncovered in the Lebanon war photos from Reuters. Gotcha!

The NRO has an proud article showing what a hypocrite Al Franken is because he himself hasn't hired enough blacks. Gotcha!

Right Wing Bloggers: I am tired of your game of Gotcha! Don't you get it? It really doesn't matter if the whole world lies and is hypocritical. And it really doesn't impress me if you prove that.

What matters is that you stand FOR something that brings new value to the world we live in.

Keeping power and stopping progress does not do that. Showing how clever you are in discovering the false claims and manipulations of others -- that does not bring value to the world.

Progressives and liberals dedicate their lives and talents to improving the planet. You guys, you conservatives, you right wingers, it seems to me more and more that all you do is play the game of Gotcha! How tiring. [repost from 8/30/06]

Apparently not tired enough for you to read their stuff and to comment on it.

"What matters is that you stand FOR something that brings new value to the world we live in."

They're exposing bad stuff just like you like to expose bad stuff.

This comment comes almost a full year after my comment above.

Here's another 60 gotchas:

"What matters is that you stand FOR something that brings new value to the world we live in."

If you were to judge them on more than just their blogs ("*kol* ha'adam") you might find what you're not finding now.

Franken causes his /own/ "gotchas." Gotta pay those taxes, Al.
