(B)dodo Droppings

During the next month I'll be introducing a few regular features here at Counter-Punch. The first one is (B)dodo Droppings. Peter Bodo is a longtime writer for Tennis Magazine. A few years ago he started a blog over at, which he uses mostly to discuss his political views, including how they manifest themselves in the tennis world. 

For example, Bodo thinks Roger Federer is a great big sissy with a man purse who probably would vote to turn the world over to Muslim terrorists. He also thinks Roger is probably the greatest player ever.

Yes, Dodo is a Macho, Macho Man all right. He writes extensively about his farm and all the manly activity that goes on up there when he's in town, which isn't as often as he would like, seeing as how he is forced to live in Manhattan with all the super-liberals. He worships Nadal's masculinity and is extremely disturbed by Roger's aggressive, metrosexual grooming. He's a Super-Christian who writes about the excessive commercialization of Christmas at the hands of secularists like me.... and then goes on to write about his son's half-dozen secularized present-fests. (Come to think of it, I did send the kid a present last year to turn him into a Godless Liberal).

I spent some time arguing with Bodo in the comments section to his blog. He is an arch neo-conservative and that's fine, so long as it doesn't monopolize his writing. I will be monitoring his blog to see if he, or Tennis, has decided to tone it down. Bodo still puts together some excellent columns when he wants to.

You may think I'm being hard on Dodo. I invite you to read his archives and see for yourself.
