I've noticed TypePad has a large percentage of right wing idiots as members. Which maybe a step up from 14 year olds and their suicide poetry that you find on most free blog sites, but still tends to be a pain in the ass.
We shouldn't be too antsy about it though. One has to understand that the Internet is a frightening place for the average American. Being confronted with differing view points and cultures can be frightening. Check out this site about Americans on the Internet which shows just how scary the world online can be.
One should also check out this site which is an example of what I'm talking about. Though to give him his props he has managed to combine a political blog with Star Trek.
Which was what the world was waiting for.
Thanks to the Pirates vs. Ninjas blog for that link.
