Someone did say something nice about Ted Rall; as amazing as it sounds, I strive to present both sides of important issues. Julie Ann Fidler had this to say about the infamous Mr. Rall:
On a semi-unrelated note, I've been bickering back and forth with none other than Ted Rall this week. You will recall that the majority of search strings leading to FOTR this week have included most if not all of the following words: Ted Rall, crispy brown, hell, Ronald Reagan.
I did not refer to Mr. Rall in a positive light previously in this blog. I called him "Creepy Crawly Rall" and a few other selected puns. I shouldn't have done that, because even though I think he's a total "wackadoo" politically, calling him names puts me on the same level as one who would suggest that Reagan was as evil as a terrorist. (Insert "turning a crispy brown" comment here.) And, as it turns out, Rall is a pretty nice, reasonable guy to chat with.
Does that mean I agree with him? No. I still think he's as far left as the Left can get, and I think his views are irrational, unfair, and bigoted. But as a person...I could probably get a cup of coffee with him and not dump it on his lap. (Just as long as we don't bring George W. Bush into the equation.)
UPDATE: Turns out Mr. Rall isn't as reasonable as previously reported. Seems his true self just needed a day or so to be revealed.
