Joe I like you I really really do…

...and I think your morning show with the handsome and bright Mika, and the pleasant team of Willie Geist and my brother from the kingdom Mike Barnicle is the best morning show on TV. But I think you are misrepresenting Sarah Palin, if you don't know better you should. Now that my modem has been … Continue reading Joe I like you I really really do…

Trig Trutherism hits Andrew Sullivan with a cluebat

Who knew that Sullivan's Syndrome might have a positive side effect: If you want to know why the allegedly liberal media didn't touch - and still won't touch - this story, look no further. It has nothing to do with the facts, and everything to do with their politics. Notice the core modus operandi of … Continue reading Trig Trutherism hits Andrew Sullivan with a cluebat

Andrew Sullivan’s Mea Culpa…

is worth a read. It is something that a lot of mainstream journalists owe us. Although he does indulge in his normal Palin derangement/Sullivan's syndrome behavior he still deserves credit for it.. I can't help but tweak him however over one statement that is so funny that you had better not be drinking when you … Continue reading Andrew Sullivan’s Mea Culpa…

Because of the local stuff…

...I haven't touched the national news today. Lucky for you the other blogs are on the ball: Robert Stacy give the Port-Mortem on the Illinois results that were less than what might be desired: Second-guessing campaign strategies is a fascinating sport. However, if there is any New Media takeaway from the Illinois gubernatorial primary, it … Continue reading Because of the local stuff…

I don’t know how much extra traffic LGF got yesterday…

...and I'm not going to bother to look it up. But Charles' whole "instabeg" business certainly didn't hurt my traffic. It quadrupled yesterday. Jules Crittenden who is the source of a lot of those extra hits (thanks muchly) had this to say on the subject: Some people ask why we do this … pay attention … Continue reading I don’t know how much extra traffic LGF got yesterday…

When it comes to the Sarah Palin book people get interesting…

...to this I cite a comment left on my review: Even your title indicates lack of understanding: "Normal." What's normal? Labeling the motives and stimuli of "liberals" and the "elite," something you're incapable of understanding? Rationalizing Sarah's kids' behavior, when you'd have slammed Obama if his kids approached the Palin kids' behavior? Commenting on PETA, … Continue reading When it comes to the Sarah Palin book people get interesting…

I’ve Heard of Sullivans Syndrome…

...but this is ridiculous. Jealousy is a terrible thing. Update: Stacy is such a wallflower on stuff like this. "Earnestness"? You complain about being accused of earnestness, you demented poofter? After you've spent more than 15 months pushing that lunatic Trig Truther nonsense? You are a dope-smoking, contagion-spreading menace to society, Andrew Sullivan, and you … Continue reading I’ve Heard of Sullivans Syndrome…

A classic example of the traits of Sullivan’s Syndrome aka Bloggers Alzheimer’s

You might recall in my dissertation on Bloggers Alzheimer's I said the following: Like regular Alzheimer patients some brief periods of lucidity may emerge (re Iran) but when exposed to the “external threat” again (re: Palin) the syndrome re-asserts itself. And the patient will often make an object of adoration of any opponent of the … Continue reading A classic example of the traits of Sullivan’s Syndrome aka Bloggers Alzheimer’s

Lawrence O’Donnell thinks of something I didn’t about Married Priests…

...I mentioned the difference in pay but on Morning Joe just they were talking about the Pope and the Anglican communion etc and the suggestion was it might lead to changing the rules on married priests. (I think it's a bad idea but there is certainly nothing that would contrast with eternal truth) O'Donnell said … Continue reading Lawrence O’Donnell thinks of something I didn’t about Married Priests…

The evidence Andrew Sullivan has been waiting for!

Here is the missing piece to the Trig Truther puzzle! The pregnancy is believed to be a case of a rare condition known as superfetation, or conceiving while pregnant. The pregnancy may sound weird, but it is possible, according to NBC's Dr. Nancy Snyderman. This is the moment that Andrew has been waiting for!

I am getting close to falling victim…

to Sullivan's syndrome as this blog has lately become all Charles and Robert all the time. (well not quite all but it seems that way). It's been good for my numbers but it's not good for mind or the soul to obsess on this or any matter. So here is what I'm going to do: … Continue reading I am getting close to falling victim…

LGF and the Daily Dish a short history

Sept 16: The Daily Dish The pioneer of the anti-Jihadist blog, Little Green Footballs, is repulsed by some of the developments on the populist, racist right. He's right to be; and has the courage to say so. For that he is subjected to the usual mau-mauing. Check out his blog. It's an Yglesias Award in … Continue reading LGF and the Daily Dish a short history

McCain/Johnson Round 3

Round 3 Johnson dances hitting the tea party protests magnifying the 1% crazy uncles. Robert Stacy comes out snarking: Patrick Swayze died before having the honor of being banned from LGF That lands but Smitty's snark misses weakly. And then counters with a big one two combo in the same post: Given the self-evident megalomania … Continue reading McCain/Johnson Round 3

Andrew Sullivan needs to read this article…

...by D. K. Jammal in the Progressive Examiner. When the Democratic Congress finally passes its Palinized, Obamagutted health care non-reform bill with nothing in it resembling cost control, competition, or anything remotely progressive, the epitaph should read: “Here lies health care reform: killed by Facebook, buried by Obama.” By Facebook. By Sarah Palin’s Facebook notes. … Continue reading Andrew Sullivan needs to read this article…
