It’s really very simple…
Update 9/21/08: Esprit de corps means the morale of a group. In this case, I’m using it to show how Hot Air’s AllahPundit (Allahpussy) has no real connection and lends no real help to our military or National morale since he has zero military experience. Instead, he rattles on like an expert even though he has no idea what he’s writing about. He attacks those he should be backing because he actually believes he knows more than those of us who have been combat soldiers. Thus, his hubris far outweighs his actual knowledge on this and many other subjects. Just ask yourself, How many combat veterans work at Hot Air? I rest my case. This self-proclaimed intellectual blogger is a fraud, period. And reporters or visitors to war zones still have no idea what war and being a soldier is really like. They would love for you to believe this, but it just is not true. (End of update)
When one’s hubrity reaches the point where one attacks and attempts to eat one’s own kind, then one’s days are absolutely numbered, especially when one’s prey is mightier than he. One’s beta pride is complete and the chickens then come home to roost.
Think of a shooting star that ultimately burns out after a brief flash across the night sky. While perceptible for a short time, it ultimately fizzles out.
A hubris-filled dolt who recklessly makes enemies with soldiers and veterans who are clearly on their same side is a fool. Unfortunately, the only cure for this chronic level of hubris is failure.
hu·bris | noun
1. pride: excessive pride or arrogance.
2. excessive ambition: the excessive pride and ambition that usually leads to the downfall of a hero in classical tragedy [or a blogger, like AllahPundit].
Sadly, hubris manifests itself as both deafness and blindness to the afflicted. Nothing can speak to it. It’s as insidious as crack cocaine or heroin…or liberalism. It robs its victim of rationality and nothing can communicate through it. They eventually become trolls, spewing nothing but hot air (pun intended).
Alas, we at TMQ2 must remain behind our nom de plumes in order to keep working toward the greater good. It’s one of the bittersweet elements soldiers and former soldiers must bear. We’re definitely the kind of folks AllahPundit would want to know (perhaps even need to know) if rational thought were available to him. Unfortunately, it has clearly slipped past him like a fart in the wind. We could have offered him such great nuggets along the way because we’re so “hooked up.”
Another hubris-intoxicated blogger made this same mistake with us. We try not to be overly disappointed with these simpletons. After all, they are civilians and not necessarily privy to things the real players in war are privy to. Proxy warriors (Chickenhawks) have serious limitations, do they not?
TMQ2 is our lark, not our day job, and we couldn’t care less about being famous. Truth be told, we avoid it.
And as much as I hate resorting to the use of pejoratives, sometimes they are both necessary and timely. In this particular case, I express a fact when I say, AllahPundit is a pussy.
If I didn’t know better, I’d think he was a registered Daily Kos kid working as a double agent. While we’re on the right side of things, he’s on the wrong side…perhaps even a closet liberal. Gasp!
Maybe we’ll purchase one of those Papal penis hats, the kind popes are so fond(ling) of, and dispatch it to Hot Air as headgear for AllahPussy. From the myriad of hats in the world, this one would be absolutely apropos as his personal Jimmy Hat — size small.
