Stick A Fork In Him

Still, sadly, the rule of law in Florida is "only the first one is free."

Spoiler alert

Why is this shocking at all?

MRC Killings

Jim Romensko reveals that Tim Graham is the Jeff Dunham to Brent Bozell's racist dummy: 
Two other people with ties to MRC confirmed that Graham is Bozell’s ghostwriter – and that Graham is not happy with the assignment.
“Tim just resents having to do it,” says a former employee.
Graham’s wife, too, is so angry about the arrangement that she refuses to attend Media Research Center events.
“She hates Bozell,” I’m told. 
I wouldn't put it past Timmy to tell Mrs. Graham that el-Brent forces him to watch MTV and Logo and The Real Housewives of New Jersey just so he can write Bozell's columns.   

I can understand why Timmy would want a bigger cut of the proceeds MRC makes off the rubes, but what person in his right mind would want to take credit for writing this:
Why can't leftists ever take responsibility for anything?
Since this band [Bad Religion] believes churches are a blight on society, it's unsurprising that 20 percent of their sales proceeds [for a Christmas CD] will go to suing the Catholic Church through the "Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests," a group as despicable as it is dishonest.
Yes, in el-Brent/Timmy's collective mind, there's nothing so despicable as rape victims, those lying little sluts.

Reagan Bull

Scott Walker has disqualified himself to hold any elective office, as revealed in his interview with John Hawkins of Right Wing News.

Walker is unfit to hold any office by virtue of allowing himself to be interviewed by John Hawkins of Right Wing News.

Update: Screamin' John Hawkins is throwing himself under the Walker bus on this one, according to Matt Lewis of The Daily Choler.  Further establishing my premise.  (No link to The Choler.)

Inbreeding Will Tell

Having devoured the last of Andy B.'s formidible corpse, the maggots are now going cannibalistic on each others' asses to keep themselves alive. The latest tale of Dolchstossing, according to The Daiily Choler, centers on unemployable shyster Ben Shapiro, who apparently was the last to latch onto Breitbart while the latter was nominally alive:
While Shapiro declined to talk for this piece, The Mirror is hearing numerous grumblings and stories of serious hardship about how difficult life is there since the death of their beloved leader Andrew Breitbart. Some current and former employees are pained by some of the things they see happening there, bizarre, inexplicable directives and childish grudges for example, and other things they say Breitbart never would have tolerated.
As many already know, Dana Loesch, who was one of Breitbart’s closest cohorts, filed a $75k lawsuit against the company in late 2012 because she claimed execs wouldn’t let her out of her contract and badmouthed her to other suitors interested in hiring her. She settled with Breitbart News in July of 2013. She now works for Glenn Beck over at TheBlaze.

Internally, the general feeling was that once Shapiro started TruthRevolt, the right-wing media watchdog site, that he’d be venturing over there full time and leaving Breitbart in the dust. But Breitbart has managed to keep him on in a limited capacity that allows him to go full-time at TruthRevolt as well as retain a position at Breitbart News.
(sic -- All shitty writing (c) Betsy Rothstein, 2014)

Yes, if there's anything the world needs, it's another shitty right-wing media watchdog site to compete with NewsBustards,, Mediaite, Depends Media, Twanky and's own Big Journaljism.  It seems Shapiro, like every hack on the right, wants to stay wrapped up in Breitbart's pelt while keeping Breitbart's gelt solely to himself. 
But how can continue to work with Benjy when he gives TruthRevolt the exclusive on "NBC Commentator's Wardrobe Shows Support for LGBT"?  (Currently the most-viewed story on The Wide World of Splutter.)

One cannot help but picture The Virgin Ben and Joel Pollack storming off to their respective rooms, slamming their respective doors and wailing, "I hate him! I hate him! I hate him!" into their respective well-loved blue Snuggles -- all while speed-dialing Betsy Rothstein.

Warning: Link to The Daily Choler.

Update:  While the wingnutosphere provides 24/7 coverage of Benjy's butthurt, a promising real news website is launched.

C(RED)it Fraud

With all the wingnut self-wetting about a Coca-Cola  commercial aired last night, most people seem to have overlooked the 800 millon pound convicted fraudster in the digital room:
(Reuters) - The U.S. government has raised the amount it is seeking in penalties from Bank of America Corp (BAC.N) to $2.1 billion after a jury found the bank was liable for fraud over defective mortgages sold by its Countrywide unit.
The request in a court filing late on Wednesday was based on gross revenue generated by the fraud, the government said. The Justice Department had previously asked for $863.6 million.
The initial request was based on gross losses it said government-sponsored mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB) and Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) incurred on loans purchased from Countrywide Financial Corp in 2007 and 2008.
How about some free download cash for the victims of Bank of America, Bank of America?  You could buy 525 Super Bowl ads with the cash earned from homeowners you fucked over.

(Yes, I know civil liability isn't a criminal conviction. I speak rhetorically.)  

Roger Beats The Spread

My Super Bowl prediction -- that the Super Bowl wouldn't be worth watching -- was eerily prescient.

By Their Words Ye Shall Know Them

The Big Pussy Administration delivers the new standard for judging someone's credibility:
“He was publicly accused by his high school social studies teacher of deceptive behavior.”
We should give Big Pussy the benefit of the doubt and judge him by the same standard.
