Tbogg’s Cool

The subject of Raw Story came up in the (shrinking) comment section today, and CJ posted something that stood out a little bit:

cj tbogg cool

I say it stood out a little bit because I remember reading something way back when. So I fired up The World’s Greatest Blog Search Engine and I found what I was looking for:

lgf 14797 tbogg


The engine also turns up this:

And by the way, one of these Morlocks is ranting about yours truly (can you believe it?) over here.

Tbogg now has his own front page post. Gotta love these brain-damaged, vindictive lefties. They do my work for me.

“Brain damaged, vindictive lefty!”


One has to wonder if Johnson really means any of the vitriolic thing he says about anything or anybody, then or now. After all, the distance between “brain-damaged Morlock idiotblogger” and “cool” just seems too great to make up. And of course it’s not just Tbogg. Any long time LGF reader knows that, at some pont, he’s used similar language against virtually everyone he’s now come to regard as “cool”. Kinda hard to reconcile that.

      Weren’t those the same krauts who were ejaculating like firehoses at teh won in 2008? They make good cars, but they’re extremely poor judges of politicians. Make me another beemer, Fritz, and shut up about politics.

    Heh. Looks like the Wiki entry for LGF has been modified somewhat from the last time I visited. It’s a bit more factual.

    Media observers[clarification needed] in the United States long described the site as “right wing”,[2] but since 2007, the site’s emphasis has changed, such that “LGF has become better known for the various fights it picks with many on the right.”[who?][3]

    Someone with a Wiki account needs to fill in the blanks.

      The backchatter is funny.

      “While the name may have originated with a Muppets-driven Japanese song, Kermit’s inspiration undoubtedly derives from a form of soft green vitamin-pill our mother gave us in the 50’s and 60’s, which we promptly dubbed exactly ‘Little Green Footballs’, as in “Here come the little green footballs.”, and a web-search shows we were not alone. A D-supplement that apparently survives to this day which some people still call ‘little green footballs’.”

  6. Octopus says:

    Best closing argument of all time, given by George Vest in the case of assassinated dog named Old Drum:

    Gentlemen of the jury: The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it the most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.

    Gentlemen of the jury: A man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.

    If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies, and when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.

    I think the Guardian’s editors sensed a disconnect between your writing and that of a responsible, sane person. Have they invited you back yet? I didn’t think so. 😆

    • dwells38 says:

      Yeah, like Chunk gets concepts like disconnect, continuity and consistency and such. Or integrity or character or honor or loyalty. It’s time to sit down and STFU Chunk you fat moron. Just kidding keep delivering the inadvertant laffs.

  8. Octopus says:


    The dogs, again. They sense danger, and must warn their owners of smelly vagrants lurking and defecating in backyards.

    A fucking job, first. Limp on down to the Jobs Office tomorrow morning and sign up for whatever they’ve got. Sweep up, flip a few burgers, or wash a few windows. An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. I know it sounds crazy, but that’s how all those cool mofos in their air-conditioned houses and cars got started.

  9. livefreeor die says:

    On a serious note, Gus,
    The hubby and I only had one cheap air conditioner for our entire house for the first seven years of married life. We would move it around as needed. This allowed us to pay our bills every month and save money towards retirement and our children’s educations and future air conditioning upgrades while we moved forward in our careers.

    Employment-it does a body good!

    • Because says:

      Air conditioner in a house? I though they were for cars, and the belts are all removed because global warming.

  10. Octopus says:

    We never had AC growing up. Parents didn’t believe in it. They didn’t buy into that whole concept until Mom’s first heart surgery in the middle of a blazing hot summer forced them to knuckle under. Even then, they only used it when it was super-hot. I noticed they gradually used it more and more as they got older, and all the kids were out of the house. Hmm…maybe they didn’t want us getting too comfortable, so we’d never move out?

    Me, I like to keep the house around 68 degrees in the summer and winter. Just seems livable, and I can afford it. Why be uncomfortable, except when you’re doing it to yourself on purpose, exercising and whatnot? I noticed it was very hot in the garage earlier, when I was taking out the trash. I would hate to have to live out there. Most unpleasant. Spiders, too. Most of ’em aren’t poisonous, but they still give me the creeps.

    • livefreeor die says:

      We didn’t have it when I was growing up either. I used to go to bed with soaking wet hair to be able to feel a little cool during the night if a breeze came through the window.
      I agree-a garage is a horrible place to live. Glad the hubby and I have always worked hard so we’re not in that situation.

      • Octopus says:

        We used to have a decent-sized fan, blowing down the hallway towards our bedrooms on hot nights. On more than one occasion, I fell asleep right in front of that thing. Would wake up freezing to death in the middle of the night. Kids these days…they’re soft, I tell you!

    • Doppel telling it like it is says:

      we never had one either. neither did my car

      growing up in Texas too

      but then again. I wasn’t a pussy like gus
      * and I had a job at 14 on unlike lazy whiny POS freeloader goos

      PS: Gus my hard hard work has paid off. my thermostat is never above 68. like my IPA, my house is cool and refreshing

    • Because I can bash gays but if others do then they're bigots says:

      We had a wall unit in our family room. We got central air around 1978 as I recall. When I went to college (I was the last of 3) they got a dishwasher, a microwave and cable TV. I guess they figured why waste it on these freeloaders? Hah. At least I got to enjoy the conveniences on breaks from college.

    • Pakimon says:

      To decipher Gus’ Twitter babble, you have to know that he fancies himself as some sort of “Roger Ramjet” type.

      A “nuke Genie rocket” is an American unguided air-to-air rocket with a 1.5 kt W25 nuclear warhead.

      A “Bear” is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform in the Russian air force.

      Why Gus would want to engage in such a hostile act is beyond me.

      Maybe the constant yapping of his new dudebro neighbors and the stifling sweltering heat of his garage habitat are driving him over the edge. 😆

    Another day, another incidence of Muslim violence on peaceful Israel supporters. Calgary Canada, once again. These were serious beatings on two young men (cousins), his sister and mother by what appear to be a pack of 20 -30 cowardly and hateful young Muslim Canadian men. They weren’t distinguishing Israel for their hate either. They hate Jews and want to kill all of them. They were saying “Hitler should have finished you off”. The Calgary police implied the 6 Israel supporters had it coming for showing the Israeli flag. The place sounds like a Muslim enclave hell hole.


    Hey Chunk, can you get your Muslim goon friends to try a little civility? Ganging up on people and beating them is not getting any sympathy for the little cheerdrens in Palestine, that are just going to grow up and be just like these guys or even worse.

    • Arachne says:

      Still hard to feel some empathy for the Jews and Israel, Chuck?

    The Evil Heats are hiding very, very deep…so deep, they are completely undetectable to Science!



    Two of the world’s premiere ocean scientists from Harvard and MIT have addressed the data limitations that currently prevent the oceanographic community from resolving the differences among various estimates of changing ocean heat content (in print but available here).

    They point out where future data is most needed so these ambiguities do not persist into the next several decades of change. As a by-product of that analysis they 1) determined the deepest oceans are cooling, 2) estimated a much slower rate of ocean warming, 3) highlighted where the greatest uncertainties existed due to the ever changing locations of heating and cooling, and 4) specified concerns with previous methods used to construct changes in ocean heat content, such as Balmaseda and Trenberth’s re-analysis (see below). They concluded, “Direct determination of changes in oceanic heat content over the last 20 years are not in conflict with estimates of the radiative forcing, but the uncertainties remain too large to rationalize e.g., the apparent “pause” in warming.

    • Because the science says:

      This is very bad for science. When everyone doesn’t agree the Earth is on a certain path to Global Warming and mass death unless we all become internationalist Socialist progturds IMMEDIATELY, well then the science deniers have won.

    • Because says:

      Somebody snarked at Curry’s something like “Direct determination of changes in oceanic heat content over the last 20 years are not in conflict with estimates of zero radiative forcing, but the uncertainties remain too large to rationalize e.g., the apparent “pause” in warming”

      “Not in conflict with” is pretty weak tea. I don’t think even lawyers would have the chutzpah to try that lameness.

    • ISpeakJive says:

      Where do you suppose LvQ is commenting these days? I’m sure he’s dying to pontificate on thermohaline currents and dead billions.

      • Because the science says:

        I would imagine at this point he’s maintaining that the models are right and the climate’s wrong.

    • Because the science says:

      Because the settled science says Capitalism = bad crazy = Global Warmening = Billions will die OMG!!!!


  22. Because the science says:

    More Obunglecare good news. Weren’t Chunky and the LGF denizens all for this? This is classic Progturd work. Lie about the present health insurance system (although I agree it’s not perfect). Then put in it’s place a WAY worse, more expensive, fraud ridden, unsupported, corrupt and inept health insurance system. Slap a job well done sticker on it! Preezy was already saying last year “It’s already working!” Whatever that means.

    They say that you can be charged with perjury if you lie on your app. And subsidies can be clawed back by the IRS. So all you need is a friend at the all partisan all the time IRS to pass your app through. Plus the navigators will cheerfully assist you with your fraudulent information so you can maximize your benefits at the expense of taxpayers. All you have to be is not a conservative or have voted GOP.

    Also, after citing specific numbers like 45 million uninsured, hundreds of times, now that the system is in place they still claim to have no idea how many signed up. This allows them to fabricate an estimated rosy number rather than the real catastrophically low one. They’re gonna run out of lipstick for this pig.

    GAO Sting Finds It Easy to Fake It, Get Obamacare Premiums

    Eleven out of 12 fake applications for government-subsidized health insurance got through a verification process and the bogus beneficiaries are still covered, the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday.

    The GAO launched the sting to check to see how well the Obamacare process checks for counterfeit applications. The results were messy, GAO’s Seto Bagdoyan says in testimony prepared for a hearing Wednesday of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee.

    Healthcare.gov”The federal marketplace approved coverage for 11 of our 12 fictitious applicants who initially applied online, or by telephone,” Bagdoyan, who directs GAO’s Forensic Audits and Investigative Service, said in testimony obtained by NBC News.

    Only one of the group of 12 was correctly told he or she could not apply. “For one application, the marketplace denied coverage because GAO’s fictitious applicant did not provide a Social Security number as part of the test,” Bagdoyan said.

    The other 11 got through and received federal subsidies to help pay for their health insurance.


  23. Because the science says:

    More comedy from the IRS hearings. Now according to the IRS commish they found the backup tapes which previously didn’t exist. Good news they’re reviewing them. The bad news THEY are reviewing them. Also the commish has no info on how they were suddenly found and has no idea what they contain. And I’m guessing that review is going to take several years before they hand any heavily redacted and worthless crap over to congress long after Lois the Liar is off somewhere on a beach.

      Is that the kind of truce where they take the rockets out of UN schools, or put them in?

      • Because for the little Paleostine cheerdren says:

        It’s the kind where they build more tunnels and get resupplied by Iran.

      • Octopus says:

        They take the rockets out of Iran and other supplier-nations, and put them in Gaza, wherever they’ll fit. Rinse and repeat.

      Nothing wrong with it, per se, but you do have to wonder a bit about it…it’s been going on for a long time. It might be love. Unrequited, burning love.

      • OLT's Insert Smiley Face says:

        Unrequited – Be thankful, Glenn. Be very, very thankful.
        Burning – They have creams and pills for that. Drink more water, less Mountain Dew, and for God’s sake wash the Chheto dust off your hands before you rightwring your nutjob.

  25. Because the science says:

    Hamas uses civilians for cover, targets major cities full of civilians, attempts kidnappings of civilians, targets nuclear facilities potentially causing an environmental catastrophe targets a civilian airport, and stores rockets in UN funded schools. So naturally…..

        I cannot even imagine someone suggesting such a horrific idea 10 years ago. I remember when Thomas made that insane remark – didn’t her publication basically advise her that it was time for her and her anti-semitic ass to get out of the White House Press Room?

        So, if I’m to listen to these pro-Muslim shitbags – Jews should not live in THEIR homeland – which was theirs long before the pedophile moved the mountain – because the followers of the effing pedophile can’t control their 7th Century urges to kill all of them?
