a grudging shout-out

I normally can't stand the Victory Girls blog, which I find to be written in stilted, self-conscious prose. But an Instapundit link took me to this blog post about a woman who had placed balloon dragons in her front yard for the Christmas season. Some asshole neighbor left her a message telling her she should consider removing the dragons because it made her family look like part of a demonic cult. The message ended with, "May God bless you and help you to know the true meaning of Christmas." Sanctimonious cunt.

This is also a good case for liberals to ponder: the Victory Girls blog is decidedly conservative, but as this blog post shows, conservative people also get fed up with religiously conservative self-righteousness. A true conservative would agree with libertarians in this case: if you're not actively harming anyone else, then everyone should just leave you the hell alone.

EPILOGUE: the "dragon-lady" who received the note, Diana Rowland, responded to the anonymous coward by buying more balloon dragons. Heh.
