Place Your Bets

1. A low-paid staffer, who will soon go on to a prize posting in the Obama Administration, after the media furor dies down, did it as a big goof, and I was protecting him, because I'm that much of a hero

2. I was Tweeting it to my wife, whom I love so very much; how dare you intrude into the sanctity of a marriage

I like 1.


Lee Stranahan Talks WeinerGate on Cam & Company Show: Just about right now. It's on Sirius/XM Patriot 125, but you can also watch live at that link. Over Now.

Come On, Now It's Too Much: The Weiner wedding officiated by... oh, it's too much.

More: At McCain's, Jeffrey Toobin of course was dismissive of the story. Plus lots of other stuff.

Apart from Dana Bash, CNN Still On Team Weiner: Quote: "in Weiner's defense...the person behind this is andrew breitbart who has made a practice of targeting democrats..." I don't know who said it; just picked it off Twitter.

Ah, I should have guessed. In fact, I did guess, but didn't want to go with a guess. TRScoop confirms it was Jeffrey Toobin.


Oh! How Could I Have Forgotten About Charles Johnson?! Um, that question answers itself, doesn't it?

How could I have forgotten about a nobody who was only relevant back when Britney Spears was still kinda hot?

So I'll cut myself some slack on this oversight perfectly functioning sight.

But if you want to know what Charles Johnson has been up to lately:

Stupid.

That's what he's been up to, stupid.

Yet Another Andrew Breitbart Smear Falls Apart

Fraudster is fraudulent

Charles Johnson

As soon as I heard about the “scandal” involving Rep. Anthony Weiner, and saw it being pushed like crazy by fraudster Andrew Breitbart, I knew it would turn out to be yet another phony story.

And that’s exactly what happened. If you haven’t heard about the latest Breitbart scam, here’s a pretty good summary (but they should check the spelling of their headline): Brietbart to use SEX SMEAR on Rep. Anthony Weiner.

In a nutshell, someone apparently hacked into Weiner’s Twitter and yfrog (a picture-hosting Twitter app) accounts, posted a lewd photo, then sent a screenshot of it to a student in Seattle. Wingnuts, of course, refuse to believe that Weiner didn’t post it himself.

(Update: there was no hacking involved. The photo was never posted to Weiner’s account. Someone may have photoshopped a screenshot of a yfrog page to make it look like it came from Weiner’s page.)

(Update 2: the story changes again - apparently Weiner’s yfrog account really was cracked, and the image was posted there.)

The New York Times has a report, and I have to ask: when will the media stop treating Andrew Breitbart like a legitimate “conservative” source? The article doesn’t even mention the numerous other frauds perpetrated by this right wing attack dog.

That's what I use updates for, too -- to become even more and more wrong and dumb.

When I don't think I'm stupid enough on the first try, I'll drop in a few bonus moron-updates to get even stupider.

Oh, I missed this. He's not finished being stupid in the post so he adds an extra stupid cherry on top with the postscript:

ALSO SEE: Breitbart’s #TwitterHoax - How It Went Down (updated w/ smoking gun)

And that link? Is to the Daily Kos.

Well, that about wraps him up, huh?

He had ya fooled for a while there, huh? You know, I've never really gotten around to asking LGF'ers what the hell the attraction there was.

I remember I used to be jealous of everyone wanting to be a Lizardroid or whatever. I was like, wow, this guy really commands respect.

Then I'd read his blog and... uh... ooohhhh.... let's just say the pixels successfully stuck to the screen.

Eh, I won't razz you guys. I used to like Star Wars, before The Great Suckening.
