Maybe I should be a gun blogger...
You know, exclusively a gun blogger.
Cause I feel like even the best of what I have to offer is just another shout into an arena filled with tens of thousands of screaming people. Nobody is really that interested in foreign policy, other than Iraq and maybe Iran, and that's stretchin it. Nobody really cares about another opinion on the same Washington Post story blogged about a hundred times. It gets old.
But the gunblogging community is so passionate, so in sync, yet not overly redundant. I was so bored with the vast political blogosphere; once you read the paper you've read every political blog from Kos to Malkin. But you rarely got the hard-to-find stories about guns and gun rights. You rarely get the stories about liberty. When I bumped in to Mr. Codrea's blog it was like a whole new universe had opened its door to me. Fascinating reads from law to philosophy and personal stories, all of them filled with humor, satire, brutal logic, and justified emotion.
Maybe my disheartening is because of the fact that half the political blogosphere is from New England; I mean a little common courtesy wouldn't strip you of your Yankee pride. Maybe it's that half the political blogosphere doesn't know if they agree with Instapundit or Stop the ACLU. It's like an arrogant madness that pretends it's quaintly organized. Maybe I'm just throwing stones, but there's a difference between the gun blogs and the political blogs, and it's whatever you call the combination of purity and courtesy. I'll call it "purtesy."
Maybe it's time I started hangin with a better crowd.
