Yeah, weak tea indeed. This past week the big boy busied himself by posting music videos and inane opinions by Seth Meyers and some guy whose podcast nobody listens to.
Out of 20 posts, Charles managed to squeeze in only two Orange Man Bad rants.
<< One shows Johnson’s willful ignorance of the history, purpose and intent of the Defense Production Act,
Johnson couldn’t opine on the idiocy of the WashPo op-ed columnist, and instead cut and pasted a snippet.
<< and the other completely mischaracterizes what the President said about loosening up restrictions (imposed due to the Wuhan virus hysteria) by Easter.
Although he didn’t mean to, Johnson stumbled on the truth when he wrote, “The longer things stay shut down, the more it harms the economy.”
No one is capable of “providing quality independent journalism and commentary” like that. Now go thaw a fish, Charles.

So I got a new book recently and I’m about halfway in. It’s interesting, well written; part autobiography, part recent events.
I had a sudden urge to jump to the index.
Nope, he’s not listed, but maybe his blog is.
No dice. I thought, “There’s got to be an indirect reference somewhere,” so I looked for Dan Rather. On the bottom of page 149 there’s this:
Yep. No mention of Charles Johnson or Little Green Footballs at all, and just a passing reference to Rathergate & Green Helmet Man. No free promotion for you, fuckface.* Nice job, Andrew.
“There are thousands of opinions in my comment section, comments that disagree with one another. For him to take things that exist in my comments section to make it appear as if those people are my fans, or that they reflect my point of view when I make blanket statements condemning racism, shows how disingenuous this fuckface is.”
