As a center-leaning liberal without a political party, I used to enjoy reading Dan Blankenship's letters to the editor. He is a good writer and is usually logical in his arguments. I rarely agreed with him, but I read his letters to try to get a sense of balance.

After his most recent letter, I think he has finally honestly identified himself. The mere mention of Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and Laura Ingraham has painted Blankenship into the "The Bubble."

I feel a sincere sense of loss. I can no longer take Blankenship seriously.

His thoughts have become rants. He has invented facts and projected them into his "alternate universe."

Blankenship is arrogantly unhappy about the result of the recent election. The "Socialist" won.

Blankenship's many predictions have all been wrong. Why not try a little silence?
