1. Charles Johnson posts what he thinks is a scoop on Sarah Palin, and even his own Loyal Lizard Lappers call him on it, but for the wrong reasons:
3. Then Johnson claims, without evidence, that Sarah Palin has a John Birch Society newsletter on her desk. How Charles knows what a JBS Newsletter looks like is up to you to decide. Here’s a blow up of that image, cropped and inverted with enhanced contrast:
Now look at this and note the date:
Palin was reviewing a newsletter about “Con-Con Call” that argues for a Constitutional Convention OPPOSED by the John Birch Society. Is it any surprise that in 1995 a Wasilla Councilwoman might have had such a newsletter on her calendar blotter, just to read it?
In JazzyJohnsonWorld, the answer is yes.
Yep, that’s Gus’ Twitter Banner (note the ChuckButton influence).
It’s no secret that Gus is a prolific commenter on Little Green Footballs (previously documented on Diary of Daedelus). With the advent of Twitter, Gus found a new venue, and predictably became just as rabid as he is on LGF.
The BRC decided to re-open the Gus 802 Statistics Vault recently, and what we found was amusing, amazing and disturbing.
According to Twitter, @Gus_802 joined in January 2011, and as of this posting he’s got +97.5K Tweets to date. Twitter doesn’t keep exact figures, but the BRC does. Gus opened his Twitter account on 12 January 2011, and as of 6 March 2014 5:30PM PST he’d posted an astounding 97,124 Tweets. So let’s run the numbers.
@Gus_802 has been Tweeting for 3 years, 1 month, 23 days.
Assuming Gus_802 crashes out for 8 hours a night, we get
1,149 days x 16 hours/day = 18,384 hours available
97,124 Tweets /18,384 hours = 5.3 Tweets per hour average (tph) or approximately
One Tweet every 11.4 minutes, EVERY DAY.
Since Gus performs other bodily functions besides sleep, that’s an amazing amount of obsessive-compulsive Twitiarrhea. Now let’s figure out how many comments per hour Gus 802 contributes to The LGF Swamp.
From 11 October 2008 through 29 December 2013, Gus posted a total of 118,751 comments. 5 years, 2 months, 19 days equals 1,906 days.
Again, assuming 8 hours of apartment/garage/AMC Gremlin-rattling snoring, that’s 1,906 x 16 hours = 30,496 hours.
118,751 Comments / 30,496 hours = 3.9 Comments per hour (cph), or approximately
One LGF Comment every 15.4 minutes, EVERY DAY.
When we combine Gus’ Twitter and LGF Comment rates, the numbers are even more shocking: (5.3 tph + 3.9 cph) = 9.2 total responses per hour, or an average of
One post every 6-1/2 minutes EVERY DAY.
And that doesn’t include the time he spends to read comments/Tweets prior to responding. Who is capable of functioning with that rate of obsession? GUS 802.
Notes From The BRC Statistics Department:
1. A scatter plot of Date vs. time of day for every one of Gus’ comments. It supports an argument that until recently, Gus put in close to an 18-hour day at LGF. He was busy in the overnight threads but something changed in July 2010.
Possible explanations for the notable gaps:
May 2011-Jun 2011: Relocation to “Bay Area” followed by busy afternoons.
Nov 2011-Dec 2011: Asks Charles to delete his account
Apr 2013-Jun 2013: Unknown.
2. Gus quits Twitter, April 27, 2013.

The Charles Johnson of 2007 is not the the man as the 2014 version. I find it hypocritical him taking shots at John McCain for past statement that contradict his current views.

For the record I despise John McCain, but Charles is horrible himself.
Charles continues his obsession with Abby Martin. He attacks her for believing in the New World Order conspiracy. This is priceless coming from a man who believes that Ron Paul is behind some Neo-Nazi plot to take over the world in collusion with various actors like Big Tobacco.

It takes one conspiracy nut to know one, right Charles?
Charles launched an attack on Abby Martin because Glenn Greenwald praised her. He clearly did this to draw attention to himself. Abby Martin unfortunately fell for shut in’s trick and responded. realizing her mistake, she deleted her tweets. Charles was able to take screen prints and revels in getting a response.
Fling poo worked in this case for Charles and getting a response from Abby Martin makes his day.
Charles Johnson’s newest nemeis is Russia Today anchor woman Abby Martin. She criticized Putin’s move in the Crimea and as a result got assigned to cover the situation in thet region. Glenn Greenwald defended her and as always Charles pounced. He looked at her facebook and was angry at her anti-Obama poster.
Charles is angry Abby Marin mocked his beloved god-king.
