i have amused myself lightly and i wish to share:
today i was over at the World O' Crap.
they mentioned Molly Stark's review "Men, Women and the Lie that is the Feminist Movement" wherein Ms Stark reviews Ms Kate O'Beirne's book "Women Who Make the World Worse: and How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Sports". (Nice title.)
WO'C quoted this passage:
It all started with the torpedoing of O’Beirne’s customer review section on Amazon.com not too long ago. Nothing like a few cunning and creative tags such as “bird-cage-liner”, “neo-con swill”, and—for our Russian readers— “ca ca” (polite translation: crap), to scare away the buyers, right? Ambush the book, and maybe no one will read it. And the diseased and dying feminist ideology limps on for another day or two.
and here is my longer yellowdog jim take on Ms Stark's comments:
It all started with the torpedoing of O’Beirne’s customer review section on Amazon.com not too long ago.
"Oh, I was there for that!"
Nothing like a few cunning and creative tags such as “bird-cage-liner”, “neo-con swill”, and—for our Russian readers— “ca ca” (polite translation: crap), to scare away the buyers, right?
"HELL-LOoo! ... Did she just mention "ca ca"? ... ... ACKK!!
nice: i had my first experience of the ripples coming back from reflections across the blogocean:
good: I wrote "ca ca".
better: Ms Stark is wrong.
i do not know anything about this russian claim; ca ca is texmex to me for feces.
could be russian too for all i know.
i know that that tag is not (yet) on the tag section of kato burn's book.
look for yourself:
note that in the C's we have only:
4 (four) "complete crap"s;
2 (two) "Crap"s with the upper case "C";
5 (five!) "crap"s with a lower case "c";
and the my favorite,
no "ca ca".
better still: i know exactly how ms Stark made this error.
see, while i was reviewing and tagging kato's book (for which i used
First tag: ca ca (yellowdog jim "yellowdog jim" on Jan 21, 2006)
Last tag: Mark R Moore
propaganda (2), lies (2), liberator (1), badforamerica (1), dailykosmoonbatreadersarescum (1), propoganda (1), foolhardy (1), puppet (1), presidential analysis (1), Mark R Moore (1), Right Wing Rant (1), privilege (1), nonsense (1), leader (1), adoration (1)
yup, that's me alright, yellowdog jim, at your service with the "ca ca"!
so, Ms Stark wasn't completely wrong.
Just a little mixed up about which tome of fascist tripe got what tag.
She is much more misguided about feminism.
AND we have the proof that she doesn't know ca ca about women's rights.
