The polls are closed and the votes as tallied by PollDaddy.com have a healthy margin of error that even Dan Rather would envy. No tracking of individual votes is possible. The polls could have been set up to block by IP address but that creates undesirable side effects – for example, every McDonald’s in Culver City might be inadvertently blocked by a single corpulent wifi vote. With those caveats out of the way, let’s proceed.
PRESENTING THE 2012 LGF AWARDS AWARDS
THE BUZZSAW AWARD is for intrepid and pithy flouncing, and is hereby awarded to right_wing2, aka MF Horn, who quietly kept his LGF account alive through The Great Purge, until resurfacing on 3 November 2012. His flounce survived for 6 hours and garnered a mere 7 downdings before Mr. ThinSkin was alerted and deleted it. It’s preserved in all it’s glory here courtesy of The BRC. Congrats.
THE IRISH ROSE AWARD is awarded to those sycophantic echo-chamber lizards possessing the thickest calluses on their lips. It takes a lot of suckage to earn this one, and it was a close race between Dark Falcon and Gus_802, both well deserving of this ignominious award.
Before we proceed with the formal award, we’d like to point out that Destro was in the running. This full-blown piece of anti-American crap got exactly ZERO votes. Anti-semite lizard Curious Lurker was a write in candidate who deserved to be included on the ballot, but she’s got nothing on the two front runners.
Dark Falcon, winner of the 2010 Irish Rose Award, is the mountain lion of this category once again. Dork climbs the LGF ladder rung by rung, gets smacked down, apologizes and repeats, over and over. Dork, you’re the epitome of a sycophantic suck up of the worst kind, and you deserve every last steaming chunk of This Glorious Award. You’ve held onto your crown of awesome, so kudos and congrats go to you, The Electrolux Posterboy, Dark Falcon.
THE JOHNSON AWARD – Really, who gives a Chuck, but before we move on to our final Award, we should mention some awesome that happened in 2012 on Diary of Daedalus.
The Ruse and Fail of Little Green Footballs was requested by the late Andrew Breitbart via direct communications with The BRC in fall of 2011. It resulted in the most extensive and detailed monograph on Charles Johnson & LGF ever posted on the internet to date. Perhaps the best smackdown came last June as a stand-alone report.
Revisiting Rathergate ripped apart Charles’ specious claims that he’d discovered and exposed the Killian Documents Forgery by creating the “throbbing memo” that eventually brought down Dan Rather. (Hint: He didn’t.)
This brings us to the final award of this auspicious occasion. A Most Prestigious Award was created to recognize those sentients from Beyond The Valley of Diary of Daedalus who chose to expose and mock the hypocrisy of Charles Johnson elsewhere in the blogosphere. Without further adieu, we are proud to present THE MILYO.
Awarded To One Most Deserving for the Following Excellent Reasons:
- He introduced Charles Johnson to Pajamas Media (and Pamela Geller) and explained his stunned amazement at Charles’ penchant for unwarranted backstabbing.
- He stuck Charles Johnson with the nic “The Magical Jazzy Ponytail.”
- He beat Charles Johnson in the #TwitterWars of 2011 and got him to whine about being blocked.
- He exposed Twitter links between Charles Johnson and some nefarious characters, eventually forcing Johnson to delete his own tweets and direct messages, and to abandon his former persona as @Lizardoid.
- He participated in an interview on Blogmocracy Radio, without pretense and with cordial nonchalance, and referred to Charles Johnson as “fuckface.”
- He passed away unexpectedly on 1 March 2012, yet Charles Johnson continues to attack him.
THE 2012 MILYO AWARD is hereby bestowed upon the late
Congrats to all who stalked, mocked, monitored, nominated, were nominated and voted for the 2012 LGF Awards. Rock on, y’all.

The Boiler Room Crew is an international bunch who hate each other in real life, yet come together in the mysterious realm below the trap door behind the couch hidden with the cat stuff in the Blogmocracy Rec Room. Don’t ask me how I know this.
Although they seem like a ragged crew, there’s always at least one on watch, and one of the BRC engineers spotted this:
Mr. Magnon was very perceptive and offered some constructive criticism for Mr. Charles Johnson. With a
hat tip to Mr. Magnon, The Boiler Room Crew decided to take it a step further:
Since the foosball is missing down the un-blocked floor drain and The Boiler Room Crew is throwing empty Drewry’s and Milwaulkee Lite cans at each other, Engineer No. 4 produced this animation to copy and paste elsewhere:
That was Charles Johnson just a few days ago. The illlogic is typically Johnsonian, in that the NRA fights to protect the 2nd Amendment, while Johnson fights to attack the 1st Amendment by blocking and banning and attempting to squelch the voices of others.
Here on DoD we laugh at the stupid, and in Spanish we say, “Ja, ja, ja!” but not necessarily in that order because don’t want to be labeled as Serbian Genocide Deniers, whatever that means. Oh, and by the way, did we mention that Charles has a Mossberg?
Normally when someone discusses lethal weaponry, especially on their own blog, they’re proud of it, and they’re not reticent about sharing stats and details with other gun owners. It’s noteworthy that our good friend has never once mentioned a model number, what ammo he prefers, and has never described firing the weapon. Not even once.
Charles has never mentioned a firearms course, never asked for (nor proffered) any advice as to maintenance, handling, or the history of his weapon on LGF. Has he ever posted a picture of his acquaintance “Mr. Mossberg”? NOPE.
