If you hire a blogger to be mean to the bad guys... you had better be damn sure... the bad guy.... isn't you (with apologies to Machete)Is there a basic issue that saying "we care about people and it's okay with us if you're an arsehole provided you're being an arsehole to the bad guys"
I think it is a well recognised phenomenon. I remember seeing jokes at uni about how liberal law students will have fully transitioned to "hanging's too good for 'em" right-wingers by the time they make it to being a judge.But there are dozens of middle aged bastards transitioning towards a career of being a spiteful right-wing knobhead. Is this a new development or have I just not really noticed before?
This reminds me that a lot of former Italian fascists found a new post-war life in the PCI.
