Goodbye Howling Latina

It is with a sense of sadness that I link to this post:
Howling Latina has been removed from the Cobalt6 blogroll.


It is my fault that she remained as long as she did, I hadn't been watching the blogrolled sites.

She has also been delisted by LeftyBlogs.
I removed Howling Latina from my blogroll some weeks ago, but I still hoped that she would re-examine her behavior. It's become clear to me now that she can no longer participate constructively in Democratic politics, and for that reason I am also permanently removing Mimi Schaeffer, aka "Howling Latina" from my blogroll, never to return under any circumstances.

Some additional thoughts:

I don’t pretend to know why Mimi Schaeffer felt obligated to burn her bridges once Hillary Clinton lost the nomination, but she did. Mimi has repeatedly attacked and insulted every supporter of Barack Obama. That was her choice. She has done everything she can do to offend, and she finally succeeded.

I agree that her attacks on Obama and his supporters were a little (okay, a lot) ridiculous, but I don't think it means she should have been taken off of leftyblogs for her differing opinion. Also, as I said on Cobalt6 I still for the life of me cannot figure out how so many Hillary supporters can justify NOT supporting Obama when there is so much at stake. Then again, maybe it'd help if Hillary would get out there and do a little bit more campaigning for Obama, eh?

You know, it's kinda sad really. I've taken people off my blogroll in a fit of anger only to put them back on the next day in the past. But I took Mimi off months ago. She's simply become irrational.

I supported Hillary. But McCain is the antithesis of anything that Hillary or her supporters stand for. Especially those who claim to be feminists.

McCain is anti-choice, would support more judges like Alito and Roberts and has recently changed positions and no longer supports laws that would ensure that women earn equal pay for equal work.

For a so-called feminist to support him is to cut off her nose to spite her face. I simply don't understand it.

Actually her views are irrelevant in this case. To be in VA Lefty Blogs you have to devote at least some of your content to VA issues. There's no local stuff on her blog at all. That alone is enough reason to remove her.

The mystifying thing is how she keeps going on about how Obama should choose Clinton as his running mate. If he's such a vile human being as HL says, why on earth would she want Hillary to run with him?

Hi there. Kari Chisholm from here. I'd encourage you to read this blog post before jumping to conclusions. Thanks.

p.s. Above, Chris gets it exactly right.
