As if on cue, a comment from a wingnut! It's the first wmtc has received in quite a while. I deleted it, but here it is without attribution:
Thank you for leaving the United States. The fewer "progressives" that infest it, the better it's chances for survival.

Great nations do not die, they commit suicide. And the leftwing is the knife with which Uncle Sam slits his wrists.
This wingnut and I agree on a major point. I also think the United States has committed suicide. But seriously, can you imagine believing that the left in the US is what killed it? Whoa, baby.

I thank him or her for the misused apostrophe. What would a troll comment be without at least one good grammatical error?

I guess the wtmc comments and deletion policy, like everything else in my life, comes down to what feels right. I just can't leave crap like this on my blog, except in this form.

I would be willing to bet the threads on the wingnut are right-hand only as a left turn would be against the wacko's "principles" . . . . .

Grammatical error? Check.

Snarky use of quotation marks? Check.

Melodrama? Check and, o my, check.

Simple explanation for complex problem? Check.

I do believe we have a winner!

I especially love the "progressive" thing. He's so right; people who work for equality and human rights are actually regressing, wanting to bring us back to a time when women and minorities and homosexuals were treated equally, where democracy and peace were spread far and wide... you know, way back then. It must have been a while ago.

I wonder what this commenter thinks of as "progress" then. I'd be willing to bet it involved dead people with brown skins.

Props to M@ for deriving the Wingnut Comment Checklist!

Oh indeed. Before recorded history, in fact.

Thank you for coming to Canada. The more "progressives" that infest it, the better it's chances for survival.

Thank you for leaving the United States.

You get the feeling this is the new slogan they're going to be putting up on the walls of all the international airports down there soon? :)

Don't you love it when they blame the left for everything, but yet their right wing nutjobs have control of all three branches of government.

Ignorance to it's fullest.

Great for tourism, that...

Yes! And of most states, too. What even remains of the left to complain about? Social Security? There's a radical leftist idea for ya.

Trotsky without the exile. It's more American, though. :)
