David Blaska Sorts The ‘Leftist News Media’, Gregory Humphrey Lands On Marxist Side

February 3, 2014

There are times when I actually agree with David Blaska, a former acting press secretary to Tommy Thompson.  When that happens it usually deals with local matters in Dane County.  One example was our desire to stem the rubbish that often came from the mouth of John “Sly” Sylvester when on Madison radio.  But then I guess it could also be said Blaska agreed with me.   Such is politics when today we may disagree on a matter, but link arms on a separate concern tomorrow.

As I was scrolling down Facebook today I read with amusement the latest blog post by Blaska which ranks the ‘leftist news media’ and found that I have been added to the list.  The chart he has posted is worth the visit to his site, if for northing more than a smile.

The chart illustrates a disturbing pattern: the more Marxist the politics, the more vitriolic their discourse. Walker Derangement Syndrome accounts for some of the mental dysfunction, but one suspects that some of these personalities brought their own bad juju to the party.

For instance, Madison-based Deke Rivers (Greg Humphrey) at Caffeinated Politics is a reliable blue-fister. But he actually upbraided a fellow lefty for an online death threat against Gov. Walker. His politics fall on the Marxist side of the chart but he retains — at long last, sir — some sense of human decency.

I like Blaska, though I have never personally met him.  He seems witty and though I know our politics are really quite opposite each other I suspect there are more places we agree than either of us might want to admit.

    Whenever David Blaska cites others’ mental dysfunction, I start thinking about pots and kettles.
