I do not like Nancy Boyda. There's no secret about that. I've pointed out that Boyda is more like Nancy Pelosi than the average person in Kansas. I've said she's a hypocrite. I've said she has told lies (spin, shading the truth, etc, whatever you want to call it she does it to intentionally mislead). I've made no bones about it.
BoydaBloc, who gets upset when I call him BlocBoyda, has whined and moaned about my posts. Calling me "junior high," among other things to suggest I am unfairly characterizing him and his dear beloved Nancy. So, since he continues to pound away with his righteous indignation, I want to take just a couple minutes to recap some of the hypocrisy of my friend at the Bloc:
He's called Jim Ryun and Lynn Jenkins "unethical" and unfit to serve in office. He accused Jim of disenfranchising voters. He called Lynn "paranoid" and "lazy." He put Lynn's head on a cartoon cat body and stretched her face to look like a clown. That's not juvenile, at all . . . He called me, and all Republicans "nutjobs." I could go on and on, but you get the point. It's hypocritical (oops, there I go, calling people names again) for the Bloc to complain about the terminology I use in my posts. You've heard the one about the pot and the kettle.
He thinks it's ok to use hyperbole on others, but not when it's directed at him or the queen bee of thin skin, Boyda-Pelosi. This gets to the very pysche of who he is.
It's no secret that Democrats, particularly liberal Democrats, have a double standard. I cannot tell you how many debates I have watched when the liberal comes unglued when challenged on their talking points. It's who they are. Talk to a reporter or editor in the Second District, and they will tell you, off the record of course, that they have more than once encountered an indignant Nancy or Steve Boyda over the direction of a news story. Heaven forbid we challenge their version of the story. It always ends in something along the lines of, "this is another politically motivated attack by an unfair partisan hack." Oh, poor, poor me. Those right wing extremists are picking on me again.
Bottom line, it's a complete lack of personal responsibility for their actions. It's how Nancy Boyda can simply change her positions on the issues without any regard for principle. It's how BoydaBloc can ridicule others with impunity while crying about what other say about him, or his hero Nancy.
I have never once complained, whined or cried about the Bloc's name calling, nor will I here. In fact, I welcome it. It's called free speech. It's a cornerstone of the freedoms our founding fathers stood for. So, Bloc is free to engage in whatever speech he chooses, even if it's hypocritical. I'm ok with it. But please, don't try to claim some "moral high ground" in this war of words. You haven't earned it.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
