Du Toit Rockhead City

Via alicublog, I see that Kim du Toit, the Personification of the Right-Wing Male, has hit the wall:

Since the defeat of yesterday, many people have been asking Kim if he will reconsider his decision to stop blogging. We need a break, Kim especially.


He's blogged every day for over seven years through the agony of gout and the depression of not being able to contribute to our financial requirements, never missing a day, never failing to respond to email questions about what gun to buy, or requests to help learn to shoot when he was barely able to drive to meet up at the range. It's time for others to step up and allow Kim a chance to sit down.

I hate to kick a guy when he's sitting down. So I'll let this guy do it instead:

Well, I'm not going to quit. Fuck that. One of the characteristics of the non-pussified man (and this should strike fear into the hearts of women and girly-men everywhere) is that he never quits just because the odds seem overwhelming. Omaha Beach, guys.

As far as I can tell from Mrs. du Toit's poorly-written essay, the dTs have financed two lap-band surgeries, a "last hurrah around the world with our kids," a non-refundable vacation and three college tuitions (apparently at private colleges) with $500 month blogging income and a tapped-out IRA, and have wound up $60,000 in debt. Apparently posting photographs of guns and old movie stars isn't the road to riches it once was. But the dTs have got a sound strategy for success which should have them back in the black in no time.

I wish them all the luck in the world.

Update: Julia says it better.
