ANN ALTHOUSE: “I guess Firedoglake is flouting the ‘civility’ bullshit that’s been bandied about lately.”

Plus this: “Clearly, we talk about female politicians’ hair all the time. It is different to talk about men’s hair, of course, because men aren’t supposed to care much about their hair. It’s part of the conventional manly image not to pay attention to hair, and when a man runs afoul of that image, he gives his opponents raw material that… well, that can make a hilarious video.”

FDL was unhappy about Althouse’s observation of Obama’s hair-color change. Personally, I think it’s fine if Obama colors his hair. But weren’t lefties always snarking about Reagan’s hair being dyed?

Meanwhile, Don Surber isn’t into the “new civility” either:

The left wants us to be civil — after being so uncivil for a decade.

Bite me. I have been screamed at for 10 years. It’s my turn now. I am not going to scream back. But I refuse to allow anyone to dictate what I say or how I say it. I refuse to allow the same foul-mouthed, foul-spirited foul people who dumped on me to now try to tell me what I may or may not say.

Read the whole thing, which is an inspired rant.
