When Doves Pie 

Some damned liberal professor gave me homework, so while I'm working on it (or watching Arrested Development tonight), go over and read the new-to-me dadahead, whom I found via Christopher Schroen. They disagree a bit over the DANGEROUS PIE CRISIS that is rocking political circles right now, and I don't really have an opinion on the matter yet (perhaps we should just pie people in effigy?). I do think it's mostly harmless (if Leon Czolgosz had pied President McKinley, Emma Goldman may never have been deported, Teddy Roosevelt's political career may have been completely derailed, and today we wouldn't have to deal with certain smarmy, irritating, Lieberman-idolizing moderate-to-the-point-of-meaninglessness third-person-abusing bloggers).

On the other hand, it's not particularly effective, even in a yippie street-theater kind of way, as it tends to make the poor, pied crypto-fascist seem a little sympathetic. As in the IS MICHELLE MALKIN A CUNT OR JUST A JERK debate, this kind of behavior just tends to justify the Conservative Victimhood canard.
