Rosie, you may not have understood what I was saying. My comments about the Weinergate obsessives are directed not at “truthers” per se. I was talking about EVERYONE — on all sides — who still feel incredibly passionate about the matter. The degree of passion is what creeps me out. I wouldn’t mind talking about my own “Theory of Weiner” one of these days, once the flames of rage have died down. My own notions would probably strike you as eccentric. Well, a little eccentricity never hurt. In a world where Glenn Beck sells amped-up John Birchisms and tries to convince millions of people that Woodrow Wilson caused all our problems, my own ambitions in the oddness department are comparatively quite modest. That said, now ishardly the best time to go into that old territory. I’ve had dealings with the folks who worked with Breitbart. I’ve also dealt with bizarre fellows like Neal Rauhauser and Ron Brynaert. I don’t like ANY of those guys. I don’t want to be dragged into their morass, and I certainly want no part in their strange twilight wars. In my tiny, cozy little corner of the blog-iverse, eccentric and unpopular theorizing is an acceptable vice, if applied sparingly and occasionally. But a daily diet of rancor and rage is just soul-deadening.
