Jessica Mcbride must be a native Wisconsinite, ’cause she’s sure as hell badgering Laurel Walker.

January 5th, 2006

I know it’s not the smartest thing for a new blogger who leans conservative to offend one of Milwaukee’s conservative blogging stars…

…but at this point I feel like I’m just standing by while someone mugs another human being right in front of me.

In the last three days, viagra buy here Jessica has made four posts castigating Laurel Walker for not being conservative enough for Waukesha county.

One on January 3rd.

One on January 4th

One on January 5th.

And one more later on the 5th.

One or two posts would have been good, but four in three days is starting to seem abusive.

I totally support Jessica’s right to pressure the Journal Sentinel to add more conservative voices.

(God knows, I’d be happy enough if they replaced Eugene Kane with someone whose name didn’t rhyme with “insane.”)

On the other hand, I do feel that there’s an argument to be made that conservatives and liberals hear too much of their own voices already.

Personally, I like to listen to NPR because I get an idea of how the other side thinks.

And I can laugh at the crazy opinions of the far left instead of being embarrassed by the crazy opinions of the far right.

Plus, the more liberal commentary there is, the more fodder I have for my blog.

Anyway, while I support Jessica’s right to lobby for more balance at the Journal Sentinel, I really hope she stops focusing so much on Ms. Walker.

As an aside, I recently wrote Jessica to tell her how much I admired her writing on Starfish.

But I’ll admire her even more if she quits beating this sea horse to death.
