Had to laugh at a spiteful little exchange I came across while browsing this morning. Far left extremist Trevor Mallard and soft leftist David Farrar having another little Perez Hilton style blog tiff and being oh so nasty.
Trevor is pissed at David because he hadn’t given Labour’s silly internet billboards any attention and claimed Farrar was acting on orders from National. The comment was laced with the usual invective about Farrar’s blog being indirectly financed by the National Party. Farrar likened Trevor to a “K Road Whore”. Trevor swings his handbag viciously and smears Farrar as a slave of Bill English. He says he has no knowledge of how whores operate but enigmatically asks Farrar if he “works both sides of those transactions as well.”
I’m banned from commenting at both blogs so I can’t add to the diversion. Not that I could think of much to say. I received demerits from the soft left Farrar ostensibly for using the word “fuckwit” (but really for being highly critical of National) and from the extreme left Red Alert for something far more serious that I cannot remember. If I could comment, I’d probably say something mild like “go for it girls, but mind you don’t get a run in your panty hose”.
Politics in the NZ blogosphere- always so deep and meaningful. Red Alert- “Who feathers penguin’s nest?“
