As most of you know by now, America's Sad Clown of Centrism, Ron Fournier, has come to reject the concept of "honesty" at an almost cellular level. Which, as it happens, makes him a very useful idiot indeed! In fact, Mr. Fournier makes a very fine living for himself occupying an important and specialized niche in our Beltway Media: that of the "Both Siderist" hack whose sole function is to immediately and automatically allocate blame for Conservative travesties and tragedies to "Both Sides". It is a Prime Directive which he performs with all the brio and efficiency of the average Pez dispenser: a Prime Directive he has shown that he is willing to do whatever it takes to carry out, including manufacturing a fake story and publishing it on Twitter.
Which seems to have gotten him in some trouble.
Well, Hard-Boiled Professional Journalist Person, Ron Fournier is not the kinda man to take such trouble lying down. No sir! Usually, his M.O. is to swiftly block whoever is saying true but mean things about him and run away, Brave Sir Robin-style, but unfortunately this particular travesty against journalism generated too much incoming fire from too many directions at once to simply block-and-flee.
So instead, Hard-Boiled Professional Journalist Person, Ron Fournier, posted this snotty retort...and ran away.
Honestly, while I expect no better from Mr, Fournier, I would have let this one pass, were it not for the pathetic Semper Fi bro-hug from Mr. Fournier's fellow Both Siderist tool, Matt "Why won't anyone believe I'm an Independent?" Dowd.
That's what makes it art.
