Orlando Sentinel v. The Bulldog Manifesto

Can you believe this nonsense?

Mike Thomas, a columnist for the Orlando Sentinel wrote a column criticizing blogs. In his words, "a blog is any thought posted on a Web site that is not good enough to be printed in a newspaper."

Funny thing, however, he goes on to criticize The Bulldog Manifesto. Why? Well, apparently because I made the following statement a few days ago:
"President Bush has totally and utterly failed the American people. Almost every day we are presented with further proof why he should not be our president."
Why does he criticize this statement, you may be asking? Well, apparently Mr. Thomas believes its important to use the Orlando Sentinel newspaper to proffer that "totally" and "utterly" cannot be used in the same sentence "because they are redundant terms." Yup, that's right, apparently the Orlando Sentinel has nothing better to do than accuse bloggers of being redundant.

No, I'm not making this up.

I wonder if Mike Thomas realizes the very irony of the situation he has created. He tries to suggest that newspapers are more important than blogs, then he goes ahead and uses his newspaper to proofread and edit my blog. Geez, the mainstream media sure is pathetic these days. Frankly, I'm flattered that such a "big and important" ( <----not redundant) journalist like Mike Thomas would use September 11 to talk about The Bulldog Manifesto, and not about, um, well, September 11. I guess we bloggers are so completely unimportant that he just had nothing better to write about on that day.

But even funnier is the fact, as pointed out by Florida News Blog, that "totally" and "utterly," as used in my sentence, are not redundant, but rather act as intensifiers.
"Because of the goal of intensifiers, it is not uncommon to be repetitive when using them. Had the [The Bulldog Manifesto] said that Bush "both" totally and utterly failed, then there would be reason to believe he was being redundant. In this case, however, it is clear [The Bulldog Manifesto] simply intended to give more weight to the word "failed."" -- Florida News Blog
So, at the end of all of this, what have we learned?

First, he have learned that Mike Thomas suffers from a bloated ego. Sorry Mr. Thomas, but your opinion is no more valuable than mine, nor anyone else's, for that matter. You write a column and so do I. The only difference is, you were smart enough to figure out how to get paid for making an ass out of yourself. I, on the other hand, do it simply for the love of the game.

Second, we learned that Mike Thomas needs to buy a calendar. (Note to Mr. Thomas: September 11 could be a nice time to write about September 11. Just a suggestion.)

Third, if journalist extraordinaire Mike Thomas is going to use the Orlando Sentinel as his personal bully pulpit to criticize bloggers, he might consider getting his facts in order first. He might not like us bloggers, but he better realize that there are lots of us, and frankly, many of us aren't too happy with the job we're seeing from the so-called professionals. So you could say that we're somewhat motivated to make these incredibly gifted journalists work harder.

Fourth, I hope we've all learned that you can't bully the Bulldog. But if you're crazy enough to take a run at the Manifesto, please remember to always publish The Bulldog Manifesto's complete Web address along with the column or article. Just in case you forgot: http://bulldogpolitics.blogspot.com

We hope Mike Thomas will learn from his mistake and his error. <--- Intentionally redundant. Deal with it, Mr. Thomas.

[I wonder if the newly launched Impeach Bush Coalition website had anything to do with Mr. Thomas' decision to single out The Bulldog Manifesto. Nah! Couldn't be.]
