You Folks May Want to Try the Snow Tires

I was looking around just now for some news to write about when I was struck by how desperate the Allen campaign (paid shills, paid blogging shills, and unpaid blogging shills) are to find some sort of Jim Webb controversy that will gain traction.

To quote Jim Webb, "Keep tryin', George."

I hate to give some of these attempts even the credence that mockery brings but come on. Here is what the pro-Allen crowd has been pimping this week:

1) An anonymous blog with anonymous commenters is the "source" for a sleazy attempt to link Jim Webb to a sex scandal. Then, of course, the A-Team posts the "story" with no details and the Allen supporters give each other strategic reach-arounds in the comment section to "build buzz". Sorry. I'm not hearing any buzz. Unfortunately for you, and contrary to what you believe, you can't completely fabricate a story and expect even semi-respectable media to run with it. In fact, you haven't even gotten other unrespectable blogs to run with it.

As I've asked before, Is patheti-sad a word?

2) Jim Webb wrote one line in one of his fiction books about incest. Sigh. Have you guys been believing your own lies for so long you have forgotten what fiction means? You seemed to remember when you attacked Jim Webb for being a (gasp!) fiction writer. Nobody particularly cares about Lynne Cheney's lesbian book or Scooter Libby's bear on 10-year old girl sex book.

Nobody else is stupid enough to care about this.

3) Towel-head. Jim Webb used this to describe the cartoonish villains in today's movies (along with rednecks). The intent of the statement is clear. He was not using the term insultingly but to point out the injustice of making caricatures of an entire group. I will say that, given the current atmosphere of the campaign (what with the use of the M-word, the intent of which was also clear), this wasn't wise. That being said, this will be gone tomorrow just like all the other things you are pretending to be outraged about.

Did I miss anything? Any re-dredging of the Watts "story". No? Any Webb kills puppies stories? No?

By all means, keep pounding on your keyboards in mock outrage hoping to create a scandal with traction. Don't try doing anything that may actually effect the election.

If you want to talk about something that matters, why not talk about the 2782 soldiers killed in the disastrous war that Allen supports to the hilt.

But wait. Is your hero Allen...flip-flopping on Iraq?
"I am not pleased with the progress."
I assume Allen means his progress in the election. Why else would he stop following the President in lockstep? Don't worry though, as soon as the election is over he will go right back to "stay the course".

Of course, it won't matter then because he won't be a "Senator" anymore.

"paid blogging shills"?!?!?

A little reality check, in two words:

"Lowell Feld."


Blogger Robb said ... (10:28 PM) : 

Name me a story about Allen that Lowell has entirely fabricated.

Give me the link or shut your shill hole.

BTW, "fag lobby"? You are disgusting.


Anonymous John David Washington said ... (3:52 AM) : 

George Allen is a racist, misogynistic, self-hating Jew, who despises blacks, minorities, women, and gays. This can all be overwhelmingly proven by facts that are abundantly covered all over the internet, television, and in the printed media.

He is all the more dangerous because as a Jew he should know better. But then again, Adolph Hitler was exactly like him.

If the American people in Virginia elect this monster, then it is an indication that we as a nation have learned nothing from 200 years of fighting racist, misogynistic, sexist, megalomaniacs like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Pinochet, etc in countless wars that have killed tens of millions of Americans.

A victory for George Allen in Virginia, the heartland of the United States, would officially mean the end of America as we know it, and the open beginning of a tyrannical, elitist, oppressive, despotism that our Founding Fathers ran from Europe in order to flee.

In other words, America as we know it, and what it stands for, will officially be defunct and finished.
