Game Recognizes Game

Like Margaret Dumont, the source of Mr. Greenwald's "funny" is his absolute lack of self-awareness.

And here he is, the one, the only... Groucho!

But, DG, Greenwald always has interacted with those who don't agree with him. When families of victims sued his client Matthew Hale for inciting followers to attack their family members, Greenwald called them "odious and repugnant".

And I'm sure, if he's feeling particularly generous, he'd be happy to throw a few "Obamabot jack booted thug" epithets our way.

Oh, don't worry, Kathleen, we'll all be accused of being stoogey shills of authoritarian power and also blind Obomberbots. But His High Holiness Glennie Pie won't be here to do it personally - he's too busy being right, you know.

No, that job will fall on the Usual Suspects who troll this site waiting for Greenwald posts (which happen about once every four months or so now) so they can vent their spleens about how DRONEglass is the rightiest righty ever because he doesn't believe that CATO Institute Neo-Feudalist Glennie Pie Greenwald is the reincarnation of the Christ-child, and how Rushglass' Greenwald obsession is threatening to consume all the world, Cthulhu-style.

I've been calling Squint's sidekick, Mika B, "the Margaret Dumont of cable TeeVee" for a while now. It's so funny that I assume I got it from Driftglass....

Did I? Always want to give attribution...

In The World According To Chan (hereafter known as "Chanworld"), apparently it is considered a hideous violation of the basic laws of physics for a talking ape to realize that his old worldview was flawed, and so abandon it, or at least modify it.

In the parallel Earth known as Chanworld, Saul of Tarsus could never have changed into Paul of Tarsus. Christianity must have many interesting differences on Chanworld.

If John Doe was a right-winger of some flavor once--Libertoonian, let's say--he can never change his mind and start saying a few sensible things. No, let him be anathema now and forever, world without end, Amen! Also, any who might agree with him on some things must, ipso facto, be his blind worshippers.

And Chan accuses other people of binary, black-and-white thinking?

Hello, projection... xD
