Via TBogg, I have learned that a select few are attempting to redub the liberal blogosphere the "Sinestrosphere". Now as anyone who didn't fail organic chemistry knows, this is probably a reference to the early Latin meaning of sinister, which would be "left". As such, this is probably just a desperate ploy to get left-wingers to refer to the crazy people on the far-conservative end as the "Dextrosphere", because no one remembers that the word dexter exists. Of course, this means they're being anti-southpaw bigots because the negative connotations to the word "sinister" are due to prejudice against the "unnaturalness" of lefties. Which really just goes to demonstrate that in 1000 years, someone will start referring to us as the "Gayosphere" and everyone will laugh at them.
But anyways, TBogg points out an alternate option as to the intended reference: Sinestro, whom the hipsters among us can probably hazily recall from such classics of television as Challenge of the SuperFriends (warning: I only watched the first ten seconds of the video).
Now, Sinestro is the arch-nemesis of Green Lanterns everywhere, but this seems to be a transparent attempt by the Right to claim Hal Jordan as being on their side. Hal Jordan, a man who spent the seventies road tripping across the country in a beat-up old truck learning about racism, misogyny, and other social ills. Now, if it comes to some sort of liberal/conservative throw-down, I've got no interest in fighting to keep Hal Jordan on our side (dude got some issues), but I think it's pretty clear that somebody's observational prowess might be slightly lacking. Anyways, when it comes to Green Lanterns, I think it's pretty clear which one the Right gets to call dibs on.
