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?

have to destroy themselves first
extermination would be a blessing
despise the Neocons
I’m a pedantic blowhard and I know it
Polly wanna cracker…
hoity-fuckin’ toity intellectual philanthropist
the dreaded “liberals”
poor little pussy liberals
black boot/nazi/gestapo imagery
all-enveloping warmness of ideological delusion.
ain’t flowery language grand
endless right wing dogma
you sure are arrogant
we’re supposed to respect your opinions
Is this intentional irony
guesswork and over-generalizations.
wish we saw more policy posts here from the left
some of us aren’t fooled
fix me a sandwich
dead donkey kicks
rant and blather
fun, charitable, loving, optimistic
My belly’s rumbling
I’d serve you poison
yard name calling
