Max Borders and the Layers of Trumped up Tripe

After witnessing the flaccid intellect of one Max Borders I decided to investigate his credentials just a wee bit to see if I could find at least one redeeming quality. Wanna know what I found?

Well, it seems old Max has been a managing editor......of this. Oh...it looks fancy enough and it has lots of traffic, but look a tad closer. Nary a BlogAds advertiser. None. Nada. Zilch. Zero. In other words, not even the nuttiest of right wing organizations wants to align itself with TCS Daily. Heck, even little old BlueNC has four advertisers currently. (Thanks folks!) TCS Daily has plenty of traffic and you'd think with all that traffic advertisers would be clamoring to claim one of those blogad spots. Eh....guess not.

Oh...and the managing editor title.... Heck, every blogger is a managing editor.

Of course, Max is more than just a managing editor. He's an opinion journalist. Ooooooo. (Yeah, I know. Every blogger is an opinion journalist.) He's had articles in the Washington Examiner. It's a freebie and according to John Morton in the American Journalism Review:

The Examiner's articles tend to be brief but not unduly truncated on major stories. The front page basically is a collection of attractive flags for stories within. In all, the Examiner delivers on its promise to be an easy-to-read, convenient alternative for those who are weary of the heavy lifting required by full-size broadsheet papers.

Translation....... When compared to a paper like The Washington Post, the Examiner is more like a child's picture book. "Attractive flags" are probably pretty pictures to lure you to the "easy-to-read" stories within....stories that don't require the readers to engage their brains for "heavy lifting". Not exactly Pulitzer material, eh?

Sure, sure, Max has a full resume...almost too full. I didn't know being a blogger required such impressive credentials. Sure puts my stay-at-home mom gig to shame.

If you're curious, you can find more on Max at E-Team. My favorite part:

His myriad experiences in both academia and private enterprise have led him to explore the sweet spot between theory and practice.

Bwahahaha...the "sweet spot between theory and practice" is also known as that vast wasteland between thinking and doing. Doesn't sound like a very nice place to be stuck, does it? Where do you think his whole boiling people alive idea came from?

Okie dokie. I'm done with Max. There really isn't much there from what I can see. Someone probably needs to tell Max that every asshole has an opinion and any idiot can flip the bird.

Comments

Too long for a comment, so posted this little bit

gotta sign off now. I have a teenage daughter to talk some sense to. (Not that she will listen.)

Thanks....

I finally told her that each time she's disrespectful we put her driver's ed class off a month. At this rate her younger sister will have her driver's license first.

Beautiful disection

b-b-but you forgot to mention that Little Max is also an erstwhile professor of philosophy, which means he can write like this:

The overall beauty of social contract theory is that it offers us a justification for political liberalism and pluralism that rests neither on the foundational axioms associated with traditional moral theories, nor on the nihilism and disorderly assertions of the so-called Postmoderns. In short, social contract theory is a constructivist enterprise. And if you stand outside the covenants of Man, you are presumed "enemy.

I'm impressed, aren't you?

Nope...not one bit impressed.

sounds like he's been stuck in that sweetspot between thinking and doing for too long.

Yep.

If you slog through a bunch of Max's commentary, you'll find he's a go-go war guy all the way. But the funny thing is, I can't find any evidence that he's actually served in the armed forces. None. Guess that makes him a chickenshit armchair warrior - at best.

Oh I know, Max will respond with a stream of philosophical bullshit and argue that everybody chooses their path and you don't have to be a fighter to support war.

To which I'll say, that's right little Max. You just have to be a coward.

To my knowledge.

Seriously

any ass hat with an SAT study guide can string together a bunch of big words. :)

Wait...I"ll pull out my SAT study guide.

I defy you to diagram that sentence.

The overall beauty of social contract theory is that it offers us a justification for political liberalism and pluralism that rests neither on the foundational axioms associated with traditional moral theories, nor on the nihilism and disorderly assertions of the so-called Postmoderns

And I'm not impressed.

You don't need a diagram

when you have foundational axioms and disorderly assertions.

You also don't need a diagram

when you're delusional.
