Ace’s Lament: "If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Ban ‘Em"

Last Thursday, I posted a piece ridiculing a post by righty nutter Ace of Spades advocating the construction of an Israeli-style security wall along the entire border between Mexico and the U.S. My post was linked to be Crooks & Liars (thanks to Cernig) and became a high traffic piece.

On Friday, Ace did what so many righties do when faced with a strong substantive challenge … he banned me from his comments section.

This is just further evidence of my theory that for most Righty blogs, this blog thing is not an open, intellectual and principled discourse but about – and hopefully getting paid for – being part of a rightwing, PR, spin machine.

Like so many Rethugs, Ace, when confronted with a difficult debate, seeks to limit criticism or different viewpoints. Having a record that exposes his illogical or fact-deficient posts proves all too painful.

He now has joined the thin-skinned, scared-of-debate Hall of Shame which includes the following:

Ace of Spades aka the unsightly man who mocks others’ looks

Patterico aka the Blogger Equivalent of Mike Nifong

Rightwingsparkle aka Bubblehead Bushie

Now, it’s time to expose more of these posers.
