-- John Aravosis of AMERICAblog is today's Burro Pendejo, in what is becoming a spirited contest of "Can You Top This?". He's got a running feud with Sputnik News going over his outlandish 'Russian sympathizer' accusations, which he's stoking in his own comments (deleting most of the ones he disagrees with, leaving his customized juvenile insults in response).
It appears that I’m the subject of a blistering article in the Russian state propaganda organ, Sputnik, over my recent criticism of Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s visit to Moscow last winter.
Let's just hope he's not the object of a Russian spy with a poison pen, a la James Bond.
Red-scaring is the most popular of the latest tactics of fever-dream Clinton Dems. They're madly conflating Trump and Stein in a mashup of distractions from the disastrous Wikileaked DNC emails, which have detailed an unprecedented depth of corruption within the party's politburo, resulting in the firings of several top party operatives, the suspicious death of one staffer and even the Republicans' own harebrained concoctions of the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist by that country's government.
Joe McCarthy would be so proud.
Update: Mint Press News with the most thorough dismantling of this latest smear attempt.
I honestly cannot understand what drives these rants beyond a seething hostility of the left that is mostly contained within the ranks of those still involved -- or deeply self-identifying -- as Democratic apparatchiks. In effect, we now have three conservative political parties in the United States, and that's not counting the Constitutions. This unrequited rage goes way past a 16-year misplaced grudge against Ralph Nader, and has even swept up once-rational Texas state representatives in its contagion.
I'm going to quit trying to explain it any further because it doesn't make any sense. I'm just going to document their atrocities and crown the king jacks and queen jennets when I discover the vilest of their tirades online.
-- Original DJ Chris Hooks got busy getting paid over the weekend with pieces in the Observerer again and in Politico. He was calmer, but still somewhat unbalanced, with "kooks" replacing "cranks" and "dead-enders" and his animosity substituted for the most part with snarling contempt and reeking condescension.
This qualifies as progress.
Hooks even managed to rile the normally placid Kuffner with his sneering about the HD-146 special election. Hooks is not going to be invited to anybody's house for beers and lawn darts at the rate he's expelling these noxious, prosaic gases.
Many more Jackasses on deck! Competition is stiff!
