Note from Dan: Most of the regulars here are familiar with the prolific RW poster who goes by the nickname Suzie. Today Suzie made a satiric post in which she suggested she should charge $800 an hour for reading the comments here. In response, many regulars agreed to donate money for each post she makes, to a cause that she hates. A list of those pledges follows her rant. Anyone else care to make a pledge?
“After several mind-numbing exchanges with the blogger known as Sandi Saunders this morning, I am revisiting an idea I’ve tossed around lately: instituting a fee structure for my time on the blog. Based on last year’s returns, I’m thinking of charging about $800 an hour for the dyspeptic sensations I have to endure listening to the circular dimwitted uninformed opinions of libs in here. If I charged such a fee, perhaps it would make folks think twice about posting dunderheaded drivel.
I hate to sound arrogant, but the intellectual disparity I encounter in here is truly a cross I bear. Stooping down to endure the simpleton unreasonable, illogical stuff is getting to be more than I can stand. But charging a fee might make it bearable. And at $800 an hour, even if it’s two months rent on your mobile homes, it would be a bargain for you.
As an illustration, can you imagine a giant thinker like Rush Limbaugh sitting in a bar listening to some plastered moron’s political views? How long would he put up with it? Three seconds?. Well that’s very much how I feel, so why should I put up with it?
And having to continually re-explain cases I’ve made months ago, then leftwingers returning to the same disproven statements — well, that’s very similar to getting my toenails yanked out one by one with a pair of heavy-duty pump pliers. So I want compensation.”
For each post Suzie makes, the following will donate money to the charity of their choice, in Suzie’s honor:
Hillary — National Abortion Rights Action League
Kristen — Planned Parenthood and Habitat for Humanity
Henry — Will kill a puppy (or maybe a tree) for every post Suzie makes.
Blacksburg Suz — Obama re-election campaign, or the Leadership Conference of Women Religious
Jayne — Planned Parenthood and the Obama campaign.
dave — Planned Parenthood
Debbie — The Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
13 Suns — Planned Parenthood and Ron’s college
Any more pledges out there? Hey folks, when you write the check, note that it’s in “In honor of ‘Suzie’ on Dan Casey’s Blog.”
On behalf of all those organizations, thank you! (I’m sure Suzie thanks you, too).
