Doing An Aravosis
John Aravosis is not loved by the members of Pushing Rope. Tas has riped Aravosis here and here. Aravosis has written two posts accusing Sen. Richard Shelby of being a pedophilia. The posts were Aravosis's lame attempts to illustrate Shelby's accusion that President Barack Obama is not an American citizen are baseless.
I have avoided blogging about the Shelby remark. Voters have already decided the accusation is groundless. Shelby can make all the innuendos he wants about Obama's citizenship. It is not going to make him more popular than Obama. Aravosis stoods to the same level of smears Glenn Reynolds and Michelle Malkin used against John Kerry's military service. The way to beat the Right is not by imitating it's most disreputable bloggers. Aravosis crossed the line of common sense and civil discourse. Sadly, it won't be the last time.
