"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] Today is a sad day. I have just discovered that The Diplomad which was a blog compromising of several conservatives in the State Department railing against the U.N. and other whacked out anti-Americans has posted their last post.
It's been fun; the postings from the readers have been great (except for the idiot trolls -- the same ones who collapsed our hotmail account and made it useless.) But for a variety of personal and professional reasons it's time to stop (we might blog again under a different name; might not.) Lest any of you think so, we have not been threatened or shut down; the State Department goons are not knocking at the door. It's just time to do something else.
Diplomad, we will miss you. God bless and farewell.
One generous thing about the Diplomad is that he did not take down the site so that means that we can view the archives! (the crowd goes wild!) Here is a snippet of what they have said in the past:
We had some fun with the Aussie and US elections (we even called the American ones right; we didn't dare predict the Australian ones.) We delighted in the victory of George W. Bush over the incomparably lame and dishonest John "Xmas in Cambodia" Kerry. We've laid into the UN and their pomposity and corruption, and chortled as the ignorant lefties sought to defend the indefensible. We've said some things we thought (you might not agree) needed saying about the USA, the EU, the State Department, Cuba, and the Marines; some things that we shouldn't have had to say about the scourge of political correctness that threatens liberty in our homeland by trying to restrict ever more the parameters of debate and discussion. We even laid out our Saber-toothed Tiger Law of Life, and expressed our appreciation for the 1911 Government Model Colt 45.
We've ridiculed the ridiculously easy to ridicule Global Warmists, and lamented the disappearance of the once great Democratic Party. The world's oldest political party has wandered off into the fevered swamps of dellusional leftism and anti-Americanism following the yaps not of bloodhounds on the trail of some evil beast, or the dogs of war hunting the enemies of the USA, but the little girlie-man yips of the chihuahas of Gore chasing ghosts of political debates and ideologies past. We've likewise bemoaned the destruction of the once-valiant nation of Red Ensign Canada (no Maple Leaf at this house!) by those who seem ashamed of their country's honorable and courageous role in defending the West and freedom, and now want it to be an anti-American sharia-besotted Botswana with snow.
Alas Dimplomad, the blogosphere will not be the same without you. Selah!
