What A Shock--Lefty Commenters Foul-Mouthed and Unsubstantive--Updated

(Welcome Instapundit readers! I am in the process of reading some more about the issue at this post, which claims that no foul language was used, simply substantive arguments, and will update as appropriate--See Update Below)

One of the more amusing knocks that we hear about the big conservative blogs like Power Line, Instapundit and Michelle Malkin is that they don't allow comments. Of course there are multiple reasons why, but a big one is that the other side is incapable of debating without engaging in vituperative hate speech.

Jim Brady, the executive editor at, notified users of the that the public comment feature had been suspended "indefinitely" after "a significant number of folks" posted personal attacks, profanity, and hate speech.

Attempts by E&P to reach Brady have been unsuccessful so far. It seems likely the move is related to controversy in recent days over Sunday’s Post column by ombudsman Deobrah Howell. She has been heavily criticized by some political Web sites and bloggers for writing that indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff gave money to both political parties, when most research shows he only gave directly to Republicans.

“Records from the Federal Elections Commission and the Center for Public Integrity show that Abramoff’s Indian clients contributed between 1999 and 2004 to 195 Republicans and 88 Democrats. The Post has copies of lists sent to tribes by Abramoff with specific directions on what members of Congress were to receive specific amounts.”

More news on a surprising recipient of Abramoff money at The Nose on Your Face.

Update: Although Kokonut Pundits claims that the arguments against the WaPo were substantive and non-abusive, a look over at WaPo Lies, which has copied the comments for posterity reveals that this is not the case. Check out some of these delightful substance-free comments:

Fun is fun but I must disclaim any marital relationship to this Debora Howell person. As I hear it she is the remarried famous first wife of the late comedian, Sam Kennison who referred to her by the pet name of, "LYING LITTLE BITCH! AAARRRRGGG!"

It's ever so obvious when you think about it. Is it not? ;-)

Yours Truly,
Thruston Howell III

are you bought and sold, or can you be a paid shill for our side too

i'm sure we can all scrape together enough at least for some new one-piece, past the floor, negligees for your 'ghostwriting' over at chickenshit poopy-pants meadea

The polite posts imply Ms Howell is a shill; the impolite ones are worse:

Debbie wouldn't be 'doin' it if her pimp bosses at the WaPo didn't demand it. The WaPo is the disease... The WaPo..... a shill for the RNC and Emperor BushCorp.

NeoConservativism, the PNAC.... a disease infecting America. Are You Infected?

how much is Deb Howell being paid to whore for the rpublicans??? get the facts, not the spin....

Mr Snitch addresses the silly argument that the WaPo was engaging in censorship by purging these foul comments and more with his usual aplomb.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
