Village Idiot of the Day, August 20, 2009: tom n lou

We have a lot to do, IRL today, so we'll make this short.

Ever notice that a handful of infrequent posters make up in vitriol what they lose in volume?

For instance, there's "tom n lou" and its obsessive hatred of the Democratic Party. We feel that hatred of both major parties is warranted, but "tom n lou "drives partsian hatred to new depths of absurdity. Take this comment in response to the release of Libyan terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, convicted and sentenced to life for the 1981 bombing of PanAm Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland:

tom n lou
Release of Lockerbie Bomber Reopens Old Wounds for Alliance Family could be better for him. He could run as a democratic Senator and WIN....these dems have huge hearts.


We, too, disagree with the Scottish government's decision to release al-Megrahi, but, we were unaware until "tom n lou" came along that the Democratic Party is a Lybyan terrorist symp. Or lest we be accused of favoritism, the Republican Party either, though we'll give a pass to Dick Cheney. We also note that our favorite conspiracy theorist Alex Jones suggests that Lockerbie was a CIA black op. Actually, if "tom n lou" had argued that, instead of calling the Dems Lybsymps, we'd be less inclined to name it Village Idiot of the Day, August 20, 2009. And that's saying something.

This is "tom' n lou" second VIOD. The first was granted on June 19.

"tom n lou" is my new hero. With comments like that I really don't have to worry about making VIOD. "tom n lou" is my buffer zone.
