My other blog, Last One Speaks is so old that as far as I can tell, I can't get email alerts when someone leaves a comment. However, here at The Impolitic, I get notified when they do and I'm always amazed when I get hate mail on really old posts. Take for instance, this one from almost a year ago. You remember when Bill O'Reilly was making his famous enemies list and we were all trying to get on it? I just got this comment this morning on that post.

It's people like you who give liberals a bad name.
Do you honestly think that you'll change anyone's minds through your senseless criticism and sarcasm? Perhaps you think you'll "enlighten" people by spouting out irrational opinions instead of forming a reasonable argument.
I'm glad you're only blogging; it saves people from listening to "self-serving blowhards like yourself."
