Well...let's just say that my Twitter buddy did not take well to what I wrote this morning. I believe that her head exploded, or something close. I didn't have the heart to read all of her Tweet Replies, since an abundance of angst pouring through one's computer screen risks corroding the diodes, but there were about six or seven responses. I did notice a lot of phrases in CAPS and the words "bite me" and "GALL" and that Hillary Clinton is a "right wing candidate" and that my pen pal would now be blocking me.
Oh, and I also saw something she added about how apparently Hillary Clinton supports the far right Heritage Foundation. As long as we're trying very hard to deal with facts and reality in all this, here is an article from the actual Heritage Foundation itself about what they actually think of her in actual reality. It's titled, "Hillary Clinton's Anti-Business Rhetoric Shows Her Radical Roots." And then the article begins by saying -- and I quote, for the sake of accuracy -- "Hillary Clinton is getting deservedly attacked for her imbecilic statement at a Democratic political gathering in Massachusetts on Friday about business and jobs."
And, as does tend to happen, there was something in there about her being entitled to her opinion. I replied that she was indeed entitled to her opinion, as is everyone, if it's that the moon is made of Styrofoam. And then I repeated the link to my previous article which I clarified why her opinion was wrong.
So...as I was saying about my Twitter correspondent being unfair and disingenuous and fevered blindness and wrong on the facts...well, okay, I stand by them.
