The Jazz Man clearly hates hunting. He bashes Palin for hunting on her reality TV show.
Wow how horrible, she killed a caribou! Knowing he looks silly bashing Plain for hunting, he goes on a rant.
The Reality show is not about advancing a political, but to show the life Palin lives in Alaska. Since it’s a rural state, hunting is one of the activities they do there.
Chuck is creating a nontroversy!
Dennis the Peasant. I recognize his nic from 1.0, but I never conversed with him, followed his comments, let alone visited his blog.
With that caveat, let’s take a look at Dennis’ Blogging Awards from December 2009. He pulled no punches with the right or the left, castigating Andrew Sullivan while criticizing Pam Geller at the same time. Fair enough I guess; he’s entitled to his opinions, but check out this combination shot:
Biggest Scumbag – The Right: Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs
Ah, Charles: Failed musician, failed coder, failed businessman, and now a failed “conservative”.
Actually, Johnson never was a conservative, anymore than he’s really a liberal nowadays. Charles Johnson represents nothing more than a party of one: Charles Johnson. He is, and always has been, the grandfather of internet opportunism.
When he thought it could make him a buck, Charles raised mindless anti-Muslim, anti-Arab racism to an art form. He mocked global warming when it was convenient. He railed against Democrats when he thought it would earn him applause. He feuded with DailyKOS if it seemed doing so would get him more notoriety.
Then, when it was clear that conservatism and the Republican Party were in for a rough patch, and when it became obvious that other Right-Wing bloggers didn’t feel the need to bow to the great Johnson’s whims, Charles re-discovered his liberal roots. And, being the sort of man he is, he then went about trying to find a way to make a buck off it.
Sounds like Dennis got that one right. But wait! There’s more!
Biggest Scumbag – The Left: Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs
There’s something truly repellent about a man who spent years stoking the fires of anti-Muslim racism now spending much of his time claiming everyone else is racist. There’s also something repellent about a man who is so casual with the truth that he can claim he’d always believed in global warming while posts on his own blog from as late as 2007 prove otherwise. But that’s Charles Johnson.
While there is no doubt that a number of Left Wing bloggers have used Charles Johnson to club the Right, it now seems clear that the Left never really will trust him. The fact that Charles’ big coming out announcement got him noticed by nobody above liberal D-Lister Alan Colmes (and whack-job Andrew Sullivan) seems to confirm that Charles’ usefulness to the likes of KOS was momentary.
No doubt Charles will plod along, lecturing all about the evils of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Stacey McCain, hoping against hope that one or the other will take notice of him. It’s a sad existence, but one that Charles richly deserves.
Dennis, with a lot of chalk and some awesome english, split the balls at the rail and sunk them in separate pockets for a double whammy.
