Last night, I allowed myself to react to comments left on an online posting about Gawker’s release of George Bush’s telephone number. I loathe George Bush and hold him personally responsible for launching an illegal and devastating war in Iraq, among other things. But Gawker’s childish response to the 10-year anniversary to the attack on Iraq was stupid.
When I read the comments, both those which skewered Bush and those which praised him, I got angry. Neither group of neanderthals knows the full story, but both groups act like they do. I was especially pissed off at an imbecile who, using a fake name, called by utterly despicable names anyone who took issue with his perspective.
And I allowed it to make me angry.
Now, I’m angry at myself for allowing it to happen. But I’m working on it.
