Wow. I've effected change. With just two polite but pointed comments I've caused someone to shut off comments on her weblog.

It began when Jack Army pointed out a clueless and somewhat vitriolic weblog post and wrote of how erroneous the writer's assumptions are. I think that in her mind facts are of little use in her campaign of hatred against the administration, but more on that later.

The original post was written by this airhead. Essentially, she attacks the "No Child Left Behind" act by claiming that military recruiters prey on the stupid and disadvantaged. She responded to Jack Army's reply by stating that providing the names and phone numbers of students (by school district officials) to recruiters is "reprehensible". I posted a comment asking her what was "reprehensible" about offering students, particularly the disadvantaged ones, a choice that could amount to a career or at least a leg up in life.

If you look at the list of posts in her weblog you'll be struck by a common theme in the titles (besides the astrology nonsense): Her hatred of the president and his administration. I responded to a post in which she states to the effect that Vice President Cheney will be meeting with a Saudi official and concludes it as follows:

There is a lunar full moon eclipse in Scorpio right now...wonder when we will learn the details of the corupt secret deals made in this covert meeting? We may well know by May 24.

Oh, and it's "corrupt".

My response was that given that her website is called "Healing Universe" and she seems consumed with hatred, maybe she needs to look to her own soul first.

Neither of my comments were profane or mean in spirit. Mean to her, maybe, as I suggest that she has her own issues to deal with (oh, and I did suggest that if a recruiter calls she should simply say "No, thank you" and get on with her holier-than-thou life...), but neither post should make someone run and hide unless they fear themselves intellectually incapable of intelligent discourse.

The response was dramatic. She left Jack Army's comment in place, perhaps smugly feeling that she'd put him in his place (not likely, read Jack's comment and her reply and you can see that intellectual advantage is his). She deleted both of my comments and then disabled comments from all except "team members".

Now Bill Clinton, who I am certain is one of her heroes, called the type of things she posts "The politics of personal destruction". I guess it only counts when it comes from the right.

I also guess she fears debate. Too bad. It would be fascinating to discuss back and forth with her and maybe gain some insights into her twisted and hateful mind. Most likely, she's just not intellectually equipped for discussion and debate. She allegedly possesses college degrees, but matriculating at Hogwarts' US campus is dubious credentials at best.

So, with two pointed replies--one pointed out errors in her logic and the other holding up a mirror to her--I've caused the turtle to withdraw into her shell. Never meant to do it, but I find it amusing nonetheless. Another moron responds to questioning by withdrawing into her shell and maintaining her own holier-than-thou bull by ignoring differing opinion.

Your comments were leaning over backward to be civil to this air head.

This ladies post is exactly what one gets after the severe atrophy brought on by an overdose of listening to Air America. In fact, they ought to post a disclaimer that listening to more than 15 min a day can cause brain death...or at least an unnatural belief in astrology.
