Can I Fisk my commenters?

Sure, it's my blog- I can do anything I want with it.
I mean- I don't have any warnings about using them for blogfodder: so should I?

OK.

I got this comment from the previous "ninny" post.
I'm obviously not as smart as H. Lauther, so I'll just have to take the comment a little at a time.

Setting aside your mom-and-apple pie clichés, e.g., "land of the free" (despite the fact that American Indians and African-Americans can prove that it's not true by simply pointing at their own history), are you seriously suggesting that wearing red on Friday will send a warm, puppy dog message to our troops in Iraq that we support them? For a 20-year-old kid who's dodging bullets, do you honestly think his heart is going to be uplifted by what we here at home wear on a certain day?
It's a hell ovalot better than hearing the constant beat of negatism from the liberal media, DEMOCRATIC leaders, communists, socialists, and everyone who's life as they know it will have no meaning after Nov of '08.
From what romantic TV movie did you steal that stupid idea?
Anyone who's been the recipient of chain E-MAILS oughtta recognize the last two paragraphs.
Patriotism is not wearing a little flag in your lapel like some ninny, or flying one from your car antenna, or dressing up like a redbird, or praying for soldiers; rather, it's taking every measure possible to protect your country and our military personnel from unintelligent, short-sighted politicians who carelessly put all of us in harm's way.
Right, that's why Bush was elected with the greatest vote count in the history of the United States.
And if that means criticizing them in order to prevent them from wasting American lives, then by all means pour it on!
DON'T QUESTION OUR PATRIOTISM! We are only trashing America because our superior intelligence allows us to see all of her flaws.

I obviously struck a nerve there with H. Lauther, who took the opportunity to remind us of the mistakes of our past. (s)he also didn't feel the need to finish the "cliche". . . and the home of the brave.
I don't know if (s)he is a regular or someone who just happened by, I don't care.
I know I'm not the sharpest fork in the drawer, but I believe that we should support our country and our troops when they are in harms way. Supporting our troops means SUPPORTING our troops. You don't support our troops by trying to turn what they are doing into this years version of Viet Nam. It looks like (s)he came from Rusty's place though.

You don't support our troops by adding some legalistic small(Patriotism is not wearing a little flag in your lapel like some ninny, or flying one from your car antenna, or dressing up like a redbird, or praying for soldiers; rather, it's taking every measure possible to protect your country and our military personnel from unintelligent, short-sighted politicians who carelessly put all of us in harm's way.

I just wonder if (s)he is still running around with Kerry/Edwards bumperstickers?
