Just go away.

Goin’ Dark

I’m taking a long weekend and will not have access to the Internet, so don’t expect any new entries or comments until Sunday night at the earliest. If Wizbang Paul interprets my short-term silence as proof that I (1) quit blogging, (2) quit smoking, (3) started smoking, (4) changed my party registration to Green, (5) had a sex change operation, (6) married my dog, (7) became an avid reader of Glenn Greenwald, (8) intentionally started a blogwar, (9) decided Seixon must be lying about those death threats, or (10) begun to distance myself from the theory that Glenn Greenwald used sock puppets, he’s a weenie. Come to think of it, even if he doesn’t draw any of those conclusions, or any others, he’s still a weenie.

As you were.

Sock Puppetry 101

If you’re one of the three or four people left in the world who doesn’t think Glenn Greenwald Patterico lays out the case pretty well. If you aren’t one of those people, it’s a fun read anyway. RTWT.

Bummer of a Poster Child

For those who think of gay marriage as a civil rights issue, let’s just say that Julie Goodridge and Hillary Goodridge have done for their cause what Patrick Chavis did for his.

Army of Davids Discovers Fragging

Patterico links to Seixon’s account of digital brownshirts at “Truth Out” (falsehood in?). Paul at Wizbang takes “why the silence” to an all-time low, accusing Ace of “desperation” for continuing to discuss a topic that is sooooo five minutes ago, and speculating that since Patterico hasn’t blogged about it for six or seven minutes, he must have switched over to Paul’s side, too. Dale from Q&O says “ha ha, made you flame.” Ace compares Bill O’Reilly to Hitler, while two of my favorite economists partake in an old-fashion flame war. Worst of all, Glenn Greenwald is blogging about … well, whatever the hell it is he’s blogging about.

I condemn everything.

UPDATE: While we’re at it, between Jimmy Carter, Yessir Imarat and this boob, I condemn the Nobel Commission for having a peace prize.

UPDATE x2: Apparently, the “fragging” analogy was more apropos than I thought. Yeesh! Meanwhile, Confederate Yankee persists with the tired “why the silence” meme.

John Kerry, the guy who came within a few million votes (or, in Ohio, about 100,000 votes) of getting his finger on The Button, offered this brilliant statement about the war in the Middle East:

If I was president, this wouldn’t have happened.

What a maroon. Doesn’t anybody use the subjunctive anymore?

UPDATE: Bryan takes on with the substance of Kerry’s claim, assuming there is any.

More Greenwald Dishonesty

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 7:11 am

If you’ve read my grand fisking (the real thing, that is, not just the Cliff Notes) you might find it hard to imagine what new kind of dirt there could possibly be on someone as serially mendacious as he. Ace and Patterico have the goods. And if anyone other than Glenn Greenwald has recently posted a comment about Glenn Greenwald on your blog using the IP address or, so do you.

UPDATE: Slightly shorter Greenwald: Them’s not sock puppets, them’s my roommates. All of ’em. Even Ryan Allen, the guy who emailed me from across the house to confirm my C.V., rather than leave his precious computer for five whole minutes to talk to me face to face. I sure got him back, though, by sending him a perfectly sterile, coulda-been-written-to-a-perfect-stranger email response that didn’t even acknolwedge any of our gazillion past conversations when I’ve bragged to him about my time at Wachtell before. That’ll teach him to email me from the living room, the big geek.
