Magic mirror on the wall…

… who’s the most virtuous blogger of them all?

I’m deeply indebted to Lifting the Rock for pointing me in the direction of the funniest Viagraville thread ever. Words can’t do justice to the comedy of Conservatism’s favorite poisonous dwarves tearing into each other like Baptist Jello wrestlers on crank.

If you haven’t already seen the fun head on over to Lifting the Rock for the background to Melanie, Matt, and What’s-her-name’s cute collective tantrum before checking out the action for yourself at Viagraville. They've closed the thread to any further comments, and Melanie's undoubtedly hoping it quickly sinks from view - but if enough people link to it one of orthodoxy's proudest moments should remain cached by Google for some time to come - maybe even long enough for everyone to stop laughing.

Meanwhile I’ve also been enjoying some of my own fun here, where the comments field at the bottom of this homily from several months back has been revitalized by a charming little sock-puppet called "Brad Evans". Arriving with a delightfully nasty homophobic streak, when his initial question wasn't answered in a way that reaffirmed his bigoted insecurities he then turned to play the aggrieved-atheist:
"Since I don't believe in any higher power, I thought I'd address my question to someone who's in the profession and who might actually answer it without being evasive or condescending"
Which I’m sure you’ll agree is a perfectly reasonable expectation to have when writing to someone calling himself “The Reverend Doctor Christian Troll”. After all, everyone knows Father Christian is never condescending when teaching the Bible to idiots.

"Sometimes it is better to be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."

I do not know why this post provoked that thought, it just did.

I'm really taken by post #2 over at V-ville and the response to it in #19:

>> I read and post on both blogs, since I like to get all viewpoints

Ha ha! reminds me of the Blues Brothers:

>> Elwood: What kind of music do you usually have here?
>> Claire: Oh, we got both kinds. We got country *and* western.

Sounds like poor Brad needs his prostate massaged.

Actually, Clumber, those are posts nos. 3 and 20.

Ya gotta have a score card to keep track of the players.

Always the merchant, me...

You don´t suppose Melanie is trying to improve her numbers over there and knock the old fox out of the box? Queer, Queer on the wall, who is the fairest of them all!

Those folks really ¨do¨ selfrighteous perfectly...they ought go on the stage with this dreadful, and timely, bogus religious material...something like ¨The Importance of Being Melanie¨

All right, I give up. Who is Melanie?

The Rev. Dr. Christian Troll said...

Melanie Griffith - who prefers to be known as "Greg" when thumping the tub at Viagraville.

Do not, during your Viagraville trip, miss Matt Kennedy's new Gun Nut thread. Excellent reminder of the nature of the seamless garment that is woven from reactionary religion and right wing politics.
