If you are thinking of reading Shark’s post, “Beating a Dead Donkey: The Relentless Right,” I’m an editor and I’m here to help.

Through the miracle of editing, I’ve reduced this 6,750-word thread to a mere 177 words.


The average reading speed is somewhere between 200 to 350 words per minute.

Using the high-end of the average reading speed, it would take roughly about 19 minutes to read this thread. Add in coffee and bathroom breaks and you’re looking at 30-plus minutes of your precious weekend time.

This concerns me.

But now you can read this entire post in less than a minute.

Read this thread and have a life, too?

Evil Incarnate
the dreaded “liberals”
Big baby

all-enveloping warmness of ideological delusion.
personal political
too contentious
ain’t flowery language grand
endless right wing dogma

Is this intentional irony
guesswork and over-generalizations.

gagging down
chickenshit generalizations
some of us aren’t fooled
constant abuse
fix me a sandwich

About KOB

  • Hey, Al, if I can survive my brilliant oil-upon-troubled-waters comment being edited down to “dead air,” you can certainly allow the excision of “pinko bitches.”

    [grumbling, “he could have used ‘lightening rod’ instead, but it wouldn’t have been funny!]

  • Al, it was edited out under the Painfully Redundant Rule.

  • Dammit man, have you got a KOB up yer ass? You left out my “pinko bitches.” Only a damned pinko would do that.

    KOB, are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?

    Thanks all for the kind comments — 😉

  • Bennett Dawson

    KOB!!! There are half a dozen threads that need your special talent. Please, edit away the chaff!

    Big grins reading your piece, and the comments that followed.

    Great job.

    Even ME highly edited is fucking entertaining!

    I need my own show.

    Very funny!

  • Even though you boiled my comment down to “dead air,” I salute you, KOB.

    but shouldn’t this be filed under “poetry”?

  • Eric Olsen
