What should I do about snark?

A friend has suggested that I stop posting snarky stuff here or at least put it in a different blog, perhaps called “danmillerinpanamasnark.” The serious stuff requires much more research and analysis and therefore takes longer to write. Snark is easier and there are constant and plentiful opportunities for it. I also need to write it because it’s fun, I enjoy it and probably wouldn’t be able to repress the urge even if I wanted to.

What do you think? Here’s a poll soliciting your views.

Many thanks!

    I voted “other” because I agree with Groucho Marx–If you don’t have anything nice to say, go ahead and say it.
    Toujours L’audace. Toujours Snark.
    I’d say it in Spanish, if I knew any. 😉

    I am as far left as you can get without being a communist. I laugh a lot at both progressives and those on the right who just can’t help making fools of themselves .

  8. Keep snarking, Dan! Lefties have no sense of humor so snark, sarcasm, and other forms of ridicule should be part of every conservative’s toolbox.
