Petulant Lunatic Provides Local Blogger With Free Content


Somebody got his phone back...



*** Tweet deleted. Was from a parody account and incorrectly attributed by me to Donald Trump. Thanks to Alert Reader JM for catching it ***

Oops. I meant petulant lunatics, plural:


And all of this is taking place on one of those "blue-leaning" networks which has poor Matt Taibbi all twitchy because they are obviously completely in the tank for Hillary Clinton.

This the intersection of your Free Press and your Representative Democracy, America.

Cherish it! (h/t Mr. Pierce)

Better attribute your closing to Charles Pierce.

Maybe it's snobbishness on my part, but Joe Scarborough's not knowing the difference between "its" and "it's" gives him even less credibility with me.

Disturbing as a candidate for POTUS of one of our two major parties threatening blackmail may be, as far as Trump's comments about Scarborough's intelligence go, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I'm sure the Hillary is having her own Twitter battle with a some other media personality that the liberal media is suppressing coverage of because "Both Sides!" "Corrupt Duopoly" etc.

According to my morning TV local boring weather/traffic/police blotter news...Hillary has been avoiding "campaigning" over the last month and has only been "fundraising" while Trump has been "campaigning" and had his best week yet last week.

"Look in the mirror"???

Oh, SNAP!

Can't wait for Squint's devastating "I am rubber, you are glue" tweet...

It's not possible for Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadoo Squint to have any less credibility with me, but yeah, I'm only gonna sing this one more time:

Ohhh, if you want it to be possessive, it's just I-T-S
But if it's supposed to be a contraction then it's I-T-apostrophe-S
Scalawag.

I dunno. This litte "battle royale" in the twaterverse is striking me more and more as a way for "both sides" - don't freak: here I'm referring to Squint/Meat Puppet v. Trump - to bait for clicks and gain all the noteriety.

It's clear that Trump ascribes to All Publicity is Good Publicity, and no doubt, Squint/Meat Puppet are in that same boat. So they fire off their grade school taunts at each other, and it's all good. IOW, isn't Squint, in a way, still sucking & fluffing up Don the Con?

Seems that way to me.

And btw, I thought everyone knew that Squint & Meat Puppet are presently making the beast with two backs?? How is that even I know this? Wasn't there some sort of an announcement about it? I mean, who cares, but Trump seems to believe that he's letting a cat out of the bag or something.

Maybe it's snobbishness? A presidential campaign wallowing in the mud, with a candidate hurling witless, schoolyard-grade insults and you have your knickers in a bunch because someone has made a common spelling error, smugly and presumptuously attributing to ignorance something which may have been no more than a hasty finger fehler. Maybe you're just a jerk.

Assuming Joe Scarborough was using a handheld device, he presumably had to pull up the symbols keyboard to get the apostrophe key and then returned to the letters keyboard to continue his tweet. That takes more than a "hasty finger," and it shouldn't have taken that much more effort to proofread his work before putting it into the public sphere. Did you play whiffleball as a child, where the umpires didn't score? Just because you and your circle of friends are ignorant and/or lazy doesn't make me a jerk for pointing out when you make a mistake in a product you put out for public consumption. But wait, I wasn't even talking about you, Mr. Sensitive; I was referring to Joe Scarborough!

VonWenk said...

Speaking of bad proofreading: I meant to say "umpires didn't keep score."

Mirrors don't reflect Trump, and little Joey ought to know that...

Scarborough has a lot of fucking nerve using Atticus Finch as his profile icon.

"best ratings ever..." I don't watch, but isn't this the show that routinely gets it's ass whipped by the crop report and infomercials?
