The rhetorical guns keep firing in Oklahoma's blogsphere.
The latest example comes from Mike McCarville of The McCarville Report Online. McCarville, a proud NRA member and rock-ribbed conservative, takes aim at Okie Funk, a liberal blog run by "Doc Hoc," an English professor at Edmond's UCO.
In a posting today, McCarville points to the "garbage this ultra-liberal moonbat pedals on his blog." Garbage? Moonbat? So much for a civil tone in Okie cyberspace.
As it happens, we like Doc Hoc and his blog, even when we disagree with the good professor. After all, a free and open society needs all sorts of ideas and opinions, including "ultra-liberal" and —yes!—"ultraconservative" viewpoints.
Let Doc Hoc have his say. He's got Okie readers and a right to speak his mind. Besides, it's not as if Oklahoma is going to change from a Red State to a Blue State anytime soon. But Doc Hoc keeps pushing.
