A Study in Red and Green

While perusing the vapid wisdom of the intrepid commenters at the Blog of Renown, these side-by-side posts stood out. No. 15 certainly has shades of snark, given that it was posted in The Swamp, yet the message is a positive one. Rwmofo summarizes the achievements of a successful woman, Sarah Palin, and gets 15 downdings for stating the truth.

Contrast rwmofo’s comment (top) with Mr. Green’s subsequent pithy analysis (ass). Charles’s post, while not in reference to No.15 directly above it, gets 12 updings for a negative assessment of Sarah Palin: She doesn’t know how to promote herself.

Let’s give Charles (aka Mr. Successful Self-Promoter) a break on this.  I’ll help.

1. Sarah Palin has never programmed for Atari, and has never invented any computer software even remotely comparable to Mouse-Ka-Mania;

2. Sarah Palin has never been a session musician, and has no gold records;

3. Sarah Palin has never filed for a trademark for a news aggregator blog;

4. Sarah Palin has never been interviewed by The Young Turks;

5. Sarah Palin has never sold a single cookbook, let alone a calendar;

6. Sarah Palin has never started a blog consortium and fucked over her partners and supporters while simultaneously sending her own once successful blog into an unrecoverable downward spiral of failure.

The fact that Charles Foster Johnson is a self-promoted-wild-beyond-dreams success story is intuitively obvious to the casual observer. Sarah Palin should wake up and smell the kale before it’s too late.

    OUCH!

  2. Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

    I’m guessing that Sarah has never whizzed into a bottle, while in her own home either.
    Yet she still manages to by all accounts be a success.

    Yup….must be shear dumb luck on her part..

  3. Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

    Are Chuck’s eyes really that close together, or does the camera just hate him?

  4. Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

    As a carry over from the last thread….I see AoSHQ has slapped Chunk again.
    And judging from the comments, there are a fair number of former swamp posters who comment there.

    I wonder how many of us post over there, just under a different nic then here?

    I know I still use VIA at both sites.

    • Roger says:

      Ace has vile nasty comments against Palin.

      • Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

        And Ace has commenters who support her almost fanatically.

        Either way, it’s like shopping at different stores for what each one specializes in.

        I come here for the goings on at the swamp, and what Chunky has managed to f*ck up with his anti-Midas touch.

        And I go there for the political discussions.

        Either way, I am more educated on both subjects for having read the posts and comments.

        Your mileage may vary.

  5. garycooper says:

    I go there to read Ace, because he never fails to crack me up. I like the cut of that man’s jib. 😉

    Some of the commenters are also funny, but the great majority are trying WAY too hard. One man’s opinion.

    In other news, Weinergate is now a global story, which is pretty cool for a nontroversy. It’s a worldwide nontroversy, that everyone is talking about most animatedly. Looking forward to seeing the Taiwan animators’ take later today. In the meantime, check out the Mail:

      It’s always open season on Christianity around here. Say one bad thing about a muslim and you are considered an Islomophobe… but it’s OK to slam all Christians.

    Charles’ analysis:

    “Sarah is not good at promoting herself, but she has a lot of luck and is riding a tiger, but she does not know where the tiger is going.”

    Yup. That’s worth $10 a month. Mr. Krauthammer, eat your heart out.

    • HolyRomanStuff says:

      Yes, that isn’t thin at all, is it? I have an idea. In every post, whether they be main page posts or comments, Charles should also provide a little write up about someone who has died. Or the weather. Or which county roads are closed or which farm is reporting a boll weevil outbreak.

      Heck, that’d be worth something.

  8. garycooper says:

    Hey, Chunky…remember when you said Glenn Beck was “All cwazy and shit,” for his comments about the Arab Spring? Well, it’s turning out that the cwazy wabbit was just about dead-nuts accurate. It’s cwazy conspiwacy theowy, but damn if it hasn’t all come twue: http://www.glennbeck.com/2011/05/31/owned-socialists-confirm-glenns-craaaaazy-conspiracy-theory/

    Note: I’ve never watched Beck’s show, or listened to him on the radio. I just read about him on the internet.

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Yep, a link to Glenn Beck to prove Glenn Beck is right. Like quoting the Koran to prove the Koran is true.

      • garycooper says:

        Did you bother reading the article? If you had, you would see that it’s the video Beck links that is the key point of the argument.

        In the video that has just emerged, socialist Joseph Daher said, “Internationalism is the keyword, and thank you for mentioning it. Because what is happening, what happened we should remember, the student movement in U.K. also pushed other students all over Europe to organize and resist and to be in the streets. And as I said before, what is happening in the Arab region is against a global system. This is why everyone have to back it up because we are putting an end and threatening the capitalist system as a whole,” adding, “Have to push for this revolution. The threat is not from the Muslim Brotherhood. The threat is from this regime that are backed by Western imperialism.”

        I understand your role as devil’s advocate here, GGB. Sometimes you’re a little too knee-jerky, though, and that affects your overall credibility. It comes through in your auto-replies on Palin and Geller, too. Take a moment to consider, before the reflex kicks in.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        Yeah, because a socialist saying the end of capitalism is nigh is really scary. They’ve never said that before.

      That episode where she killed the caribou and brought the meat back home to her freezer, with her Dad and his buddy, was one of the finest in-your-face moments in television history. You could hear PETA and other libtards shrieking and screeching like harpies and harridans…you could actually hear it, in the wind, on the night that episode first aired. 😆

      Another great episode was the commercial fishing trip, where Bristol was assigned the task of clubbing the big fish to death when they were brought aboard, so they wouldn’t flap around too much and bruise the meat. The shrieking wasn’t quite as keen that night, but you could still hear it, with the right kind of equipment.

    Buzzsaw’s at it again…

    Buzz Ballad: Weiner on the Floor
    —to the tune of the Irish ballad “Brennan on the Moor”

    It’s of a brave young Congressman this story we will tell
    He’s named Anthony Weiner, and in Washington he dwells
    He’s known for his rants supporting progressive agendas
    And he’s wed to a Hillary aide who is named Huma

    Chorus:
    Oh, it’s Weiner on the Floor
    Weiner on the Floor
    There will be a rant in Congress
    When there’s Weiner on the Floor

    Now, Weiner’s rants in Congress brought him fans both far and wide
    And so on his Twitter account to follow them he tried
    Nobody knows how a young student with a well-stuffed bra
    Should have been sent a message showing genitalia

    Chorus

    When Anthony learned of this message sent with package packed
    He cried out, “How could this occur? I surely have been hacked!”
    But rather than call in police for to investigate
    He hired an attorney to help get his story straight

    Chorus

    Although the Press is supine when issues are to the fore
    When there is a sex scandal, they always want some more
    “It’s a distraction!” Weiner snapped when their questions he heard
    To describe his responses, “testy” is the proper word

    Chorus

    Weiner is hoping to regain his former prominence
    Fighting for irresponsible fiscal incontinence
    Defending with each angry breath the Obamacare botch
    But all anyone wants to do is ask about his crotch

    Oh, it’s Weiner on the Floor
    Weiner on the Floor
    There will be a rant in Congress
    When there’s Weiner on the Floor

    • garycooper says:

      Even when I don’t know the original tune, Buzz’s lyrics make for happy fun time. 🙂

      Also, I didn’t know until this story broke that Weiner was wed to Hillary’s main squeeze, Huma. That’s hot! 😆

    It is actually both Charles and Barrett Brown who were taken by the MB, something that some of us were saying even before Beck.
    I guess BB is sleeping well though, none of those deaths, past and future, can be in any way attributed to the bullshit he was spewing.

    Yeah, I know, he googles himself and will be on here any minute now…Save it, asshole, I know I am dumb, I know I will never be your intellectual equal. Of course if you have any other argument, go ahead and bring it.

      and that was a reply to what is currently #11…proving my lack of intelligence, or, since I did hit the reply button, the lack of consistency with the platform.

      • garycooper says:

        It’s a tricky thing, replying on this forum. I think I have the hang of it now, after many a bad-looking attempt.

        I enjoyed BB’s company while he was here, esp. in regards to his spat with Chunky, but also concerning his Hunter Thompson-ish vibe and potential for serious trubba with the feds. I wish him well in his fight against the opiates, too…that’s probably the most dangerous mess he’s in.

        He was “wrong” on the Arab Spring, but so was most of the Western World. We always want to think the best of these “democratic revolts” in countries that are under the fist of enemy-dictatorships, which is natural I guess. They never seem to turn out well, do they?

    Imagine waking up every day and wondering if your existence has any meaning, any influence, any worth to yourself and the world around you? It can be an oppressive way of living, always looking for that “pinch”, that jab, a little prick to remind you that you actually exist.

    This kind of damaged, immature adult eventually will accept, even conjure up any sort of attention, even negative attention seeking behavior, behavior that is designed solely to get a (negative) reaction from another person. The person is not expressing a sincerely held point of view but rather saying or doing something for the purpose of eliciting a reaction from the other person.

    This attention, although negative, is better than no attention at all. It validates ones worthlessness. It attempts to bring everyone down to the same level as the perpetrator, the practitioner of negative attention seeking behavior, who feels safe when fellow beings around him are in the same morass as he is.

    This is Charles Johnson, or what could be called the former Charles Johnson. He has never been able to manage success, being reminded over and over by the tapes in his head that he will stumble and trip, and return to a comfortable world of failure, populated by others who are to weak to stand up for themselves, brother and sister travelers, mentally incapable of thinking for themselves.

    Like a drug addict, Charles Johnson needs an intervention. He needs to have his “drug” taken away from him. DoD only advances his negative attention seeking behavior, by giving him just what he wants.

      But, as a conservative Christian, I will seek to forgive NJDhockeyfan, because he knows not what he does.

      ps – Fundamentalist Muslims are running an exceptionally successful terror campaign in lots of places. Look at their successes in gaining European dhimmis. I’m not sure they’re “idiots”.

    • ISpeakJive says:

      You notice that the minions defend the bigoted stuff by saying “Clearly that kind of thing isn’t accepted here because see how it gets downdinged”, etc. So why doesn’t Chuck just downding NJDhockeyfan’s comment, instead of deleting it? The broad brush anti-christian comments just get downdinged. The anti-LGF ones get deleted.

    Sarah is riding the tiger roughshod over her foes in the MSM: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/05/sarah-palin-one-nation-.html

    Sarah Palin plays the media like a violin: Her turn now
    June 1, 2011

    Sarah Palin, with her counterintuitive secret publicity bus tour, is demonstrating one of the most important rules of American politics:

    There is nothing the U.S. media wants more than something it thinks it can’t have. Hence the power of news leaks that manipulate the thrust of their initial presentation. Hard-to-get is a rigid rule of human behavior. Ask any teenage boy or girl.

    And there are few things more sweet to Palin and her fervent supporters cheering their TV sets this week than the image of a hungry know-it-all “lamestream media” caravan of 15 or more vehicles traipsing along behind her red-white-and-blue bus enroute to they-know-not-where to do they-know-not-what.

    To make it worse, each one of the frustrated, confused chasers knows that Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren is….

    …riding along with the not-yet-and-possibly-never Republican presidential candidate, filing exclusive conversations for her audience to gobble up that only enhance Palin’s already million-dollar value to FNC. Can you hear the teeth grinding? While Palin smiles and waves away?
    The day’s best line came from a CBS News producer who tried to claim that the lack of information from Palin’s lumbering bus was endangering the dozen competing media vehicles trailing behind, uninvited.

    As Michelle Malkin puts it so succinctly here, “The boys behind the bus.”

    Speaking of CBS, Katie Couric’s unemployed now. And forget that front porch in Alaska. Sarah Palin can see revenge from her rear window.

    Negative attention enables these people to have a check list of “others” to blame his/her plight on.

    Somebody’s been reading a new Psychology book!

    “In his disgusting appearance on CNN yesterday, Fraud King Andrew Breitbart predicted that Jon Stewart wouldn’t cover the Anthony Weiner story. Oops.”

    Charles the Pundtwit’s commentary, in its entirety, on his current thread. Someone needs to explain the concept of “win/win” to Charles.

    • Arachne says:

      You can hear the jealousy in his prose – Andy got an appearance on CNN and CNN didn’t contact Charles. In fact, NO ONE has called Charles to get his take on this. No one cares – I’m sure if you mentioned LGF in the hallways even at MSNBC they’re first response would be “who?”

      Plus, Andy has a bestselling book out. So now Pamela, Robert Spencer and Andy are all making money from book sales. Charles can’t even get a guest blogger gig anymore.

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        And Johnson generally likes Jon Stewart. But Stewart is successful. So if Stewart ever says anything that Johnson doesn’t like, he will throw Stewart under the bus and send him angry tweets. Because the mainspring of Johnson’s rage is an inferiority complex.

        That, and he’s mad at the world for not making him a billionaire when he came up with “Mouse-Ka-Mania”…

      • rightymouse says:

        He sure behaves as though he thinks he’s in the same league as them. Ha! He’s no good for anything but mockery these days. What a fool he is.

    • sacred ham says:

      That’s what Chuck considers a big victory over his opponents now: AB predicted that JS wouldn’t cover the Weiner story, and JS covered it. Wow, pop the champagne on that one, Chuck.

      • garycooper says:

        And of course Jon covered the story as a big gag, with a lot of dick-jokes that were about as funny as his usual fare (sub-sophomoric). 🙄

      • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

        I know. OUR dick jokes are high comedy, you betcha!

      • Arachne says:

        Amazing – Chuck, Jon Stewart’s show isn’t really a news show, okay? It’s a COMEDY show.

    • KGB says:

      What was “disgusting” about Breitbart’s appearance on CNN? Seriously.

      I’m tempted to believe that to Charles the disgusting part was that his bete noire scored another national news gig, and he couldn’t even rationalize it as those FOX wingnuts providing succor to one of their own.

    Breitbart Smear Targets Will Always Deserve the Benefit of the Doubt
    “…even if it turns out that Rep. Weiner did send that penis picture…”

    From Johnson’s latest thread, something like the seventh Weinergate thread at LGF now where some loozards, led by Chunk, are in an advanced stage of pushing ‘nontroversy’, and others, led by KKKillgore (from deeeep in the bunker), are still sure this is all a brilliant trap set by Weiner, ready to snap shut any day now and catch up a bunch of the big fish of the right blogosphere, starting with Breitbart.

    • sacred ham says:

      Johnson Smear Targets Will Always Say, “Charles Who?

    • ISpeakJive says:

      Yeah, Joan Walsh hates Breitbart with a passion, lol.

      She just keeps spouting ancient crap about the Acorn tapes being “deceptively edited.” I sat through the long versions (snore-city) and the short versions and guess what- no deceptions. But lying memes just never die.

      So Dork Falcon got hit last night after he admitted he was partisan, but Joan Walsh can admit she’s partisan against Breitbart and I bet there won’t be a peep from the peeps. They don’t fact check shit over there any more- it’s too risky to their world-view.

    So bad, and yet so good. 😉

    Hey, don’t you remember this??

    I see it as a marvelously self-reinforcing paranoid Rube Goldberg mechanism; technology-enabled right wing reactionary tribalism.

    Editors and publishers are seriously frightened by the intellectual heft of Charles Johnson. That’s why he hasn’t cashed in yet.

    • Banshee's Banned Ghost says:

      Yeah. The politico-metaphysical ramifications of that one asseveration were so potent, no publication would risk a repeat performance.

    • Arachne says:

      Man, if that wasn’t a buzz-word extravaganza, I don’t know what is.

  39. Pig says:

    rightymouse :He’s no good for anything but mockery these days.

    And it’s quickly getting to where he’s not even good for that. Can you say BORING?

    • sacred ham says:

      Yeah, that’s becoming a problem. Chuck is a one-trick pony (teh wingnuts!!), and has less personality than a floor mop. Without the more colorful commenters, it’s barely worth the effort.

    • ISpeakJive says:

      Charles is even complaining lately that his trolls are too boring (RWMOFO) that’s how sad his blog is. Quick, Chuck! Poke somebody famous with a stick! Get them to answer back! Make your life interesting again!

    • rightymouse says:

      Sad to say, but that’s what happens when people like Charles lose perspective & surround themselves with sycophants.

    Charles “nine scoops” Johnson busts it all wide open:

    This story may be about to break wide open.

    It's apparently possible to post a picture to anyone's Yfrog page without having their password.

    Nevermind IP addresses – we don’t need no steenkin’ IP addresses!

    Weiner’s mistake will be if/when he commits to a lie, whether it’s a staffer taking the fall for the ‘prank’ or the ‘hacking’. And that’s because the IP record is out there, and the IP record holds the answer to all of this.

  42. Arachne says:

    Notice Me! Notice Me!
    I’m as important as Andy Breitbart!
    Why isn’t CNN calling MEEEE for a quote?
    I’m one of you guys now! Call me! Send me traffic!

    Anyone think that when his phone rings he dives for it, praying and hoping someone is calling for a quote?

    Back when I still had an LGF account, I was tempted to ask CJ why he never even tried to publish a book. But I quickly realized that there was no money in publishing a book on twitter.
