Take note of Lileks’ succinct dismantling of the “chickenblogger” argument:
the term is not only toothless and tiresome, it’s just wrong. It means that Timothy McVeigh’s opinion on a military operation is more valid than, say, Bill Clinton’s. After all, McVeigh served in the military.
By this logic, I cannot have an opinion on abortion, gay unions, forest management (I don’t live in or near a forest, after all) vouchers (no kid in public school) or any number of subjects. And the poor have no right to vote against tax cuts if they’re not paying taxes. Et cetera. blockquote>
