Anything at all is "progressive" these days, according to the moderators of Progressive Bloggers--including anti-Quebec sneering and calling elderly people with Alzheimer's disease "cotton heads." According to Head Moderator Scott Tribe:
I've already forwarded the complaint to the moderators.. and unanimously they tell me they don't believe this post to be "actionable" or that it puts Prog Blogs in any danger of besmirching itself by keeping his blog on the affiliation, and I'm inclined to go along with them. If you still beg to differ, you may spell out your reasons why to them, if you want to try and change their minds on the matter.
Res ipsa loquitur, so I for one have nothing to add--except to point out the colossal ignorance of the blogger with respect to therapeutic clowning. It's no surprise that he's also an enthusiastic defender of the benighted Ottawa Mayor Larry O'Brien.
