A speechwriting blogger wrote a scathing post awhile back about President Obama's speech to Planned Parenthood. Except, the post wasn't about the speech. It was about the president's position on abortion, which she doesn't agree with.
"As a Catholic Christian," she wrote, "I have hope … the scourge of abortion will one day be no more."
If we wanted to read a Catholic blog, we'd read one. And if we did, I bet we wouldn't find a detailed analysis of a Ben Bernanke speech.
Similarly, we read your blog only because it is about speechwriting. Don't kid yourself.
Sure, you have the "right" to write about whatever you damn well please. You also have the right to wail on a variety of subjects from a street corner. If you want regular readers, you must accept that we grant you your rights and permissions, and if you betray us by gassing on about your political and moral views without even apologizing for the digression, we will feel you violated our agreement, and we'll revoke our readership.
Casually, and almost without deciding to.
