ZOMG. I am turning into a Stalker Troll.

National Review Online published an article about the retirement of Tom Coburn. I am glad he is going. NRO quietly removed my comments. 

I am an abuse survivor. I tend to become enmeshed with folks who reject me. What happened NRO? No more @troll game and piling on like beserkers? Just simple deletion?

I liked it when you all ran around like your hair is on fire, hurling @troll, answering comments you have removed and clogging disqus with impotent rage. I feel so let down.

This whine has no redeeming social value. It is just me obsessing on having my comments removed. This is what I am not allowed to say at National Review Online. Now I admit my initial remark was provocative.
The problem with Tom Coburn is that he is crazier than an outhouse rat.
Mind you, normally I would have typed shithouse rat. I try to be good around authoritarian rightwingers. Really, I do. I commented again.
I will try being more polite. The problem with Tom Coburn is that he is not sane. 
"It's just a good thing I can't pack a gun on the Senate floor." —Coburn, two weeks after the near-fatal shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) 
"The gay community has infiltrated the very centers of power in every area across this country, and they wield extreme power… That agenda is the greatest threat to our freedom that we face today. Why do you think we see the rationalization for abortion and multiple sexual partners? That's a gay agenda." - Tom Coburn
They removed my comment. I tried once more. I hollered "The Emperor has no clothes!" I even gave them a link to the source of my quotes:
Tom Coburn is so crazy that it interferes with his reputation. Cognitive dissonance raised to high art.
"Tom Coburn explains how senior citizens prospered in the pre-Medicare days of widespread old age poverty and constant death:
"You can't tell me the system is better now than it was before Medicare," he said.
Coburn agreed that some people received poor care - or no care - before Medicare was enacted in the 1960s, but said communities worked together to make sure most people received needed medical attention.
He also conceded that doctors and hospitals often went unpaid for their efforts, or accepted baked goods or chickens in partial payment."
Internet Civility folks are such Nazis. I hate the Tone Patrol and the Language Police. Now that I have whined a bit and cried on your shoulder, Cher Reader, I can start the New Year at peace.

In conclusion, I quote the Illustrious and Reknowned Bammac who truly deserves the last word.:
With a scrabbling of tiny claws and a waft of foul, a shithouse rat appears at the edge of the old single holer, spits, and says "there are crazy Dems, too!"
"Are they living in an outhouse, like you"? I ask...
"Walp.....no....." He wheezes...
"Crazy is relative" I tell him, as I swing the shovel down...
