The New and Improved Dick Black. Now With 33% Less Craziness!
Apparently, we have that same kind of thing going on right here with Dick Black. Several commenters on this blog and elsewhere, formerly skeptical of Mr. Black’s odd antics and carpetbaggery, have now become born-again members of the Black Brigade. Seems he’s managed to convince them that he’s a changed man, no longer espousing the plastic fetus-mailing views he held as a . . . . cough. . . young man all those ten years ago. Nope. Now, he’s all about the economy, transportation, jobs. None of that anti-gay, anti-everything stuff he used to say. To everyone.
Got news for you, boys. You’re been had. Black is playing the oldest game in the politician handbook: tell people what they want to hear. And you are willingly suspending disbelief just because he’s the Republican nominee giving you some attention. Wake up, people!
