Leave it to bloggers to take something and run with it. Er, I’ll sit this one out.
Besides inventing the internet, it appears that Al Gore's ill-chosen words have spawned yet another blog alliance. I’m not offended by the twist of the Digital Brown shirt meme that Gore has foisted upon us, er, Digital Brown Shirts. However having done a little too much homework on the Third Reich and, as someone who likely would not have been born had that Reich been victorious, I’d be just a bit uncomfortable jumping on this particular bandwagon.
That does not mean, however, that I think this new alliance is advocating the actual aims of the real Brown Shirts. It also doesn’t keep me from giggling with…what’s that German word…Schadenfreude at Al Gore being hoist on his own petard, assuming he has one.
