The main reason the Left will not accept Mr. Toot

No matter what antics or crazed out theories Charles spews to smear the Right, the left except for some fringe losers gives him no love. Mr. Toot’s original sin was his role in Rathergate, which he refuses to take back.

Rathergate was real Rathergate was real2

One Lefty does forgive Mr. Toot for his role in Rathergate.

Rathergate was real3

Rathergate is Charles Johnson’s original sin with the Left.

      And frankly he did not think up the idea of typing the memos using the defaults. Several people had floated the idea long before he entered in the fray. Pacetown had it online before he did. And if you read the LGF thread people had also mentioned it. He still likes to play himself as the major player in the story.

    • Because olo says:

      What rhymes with Buckhead?

  2. Arachne says:

    BTW I don’t recall him ever disputing the accuracy of my story.

  3. Chunky's Missing Brain says:

    I’m Charles Johnson

    And I’m peaked in ’08 Charles Johnson

    • Daedalus says:

      I just imagine how nasty he looks like.

      • Arachne says:

        There are many reasons for me to be in L.A.
        Field research on this question, alas, isn’t one of them.

      • Arachne says:

        I imagine he’s pretty much a shut in at this point. Sadly, I think he’s probably up to 300 lbs. and not the picture of hygiene. You really don’t hear him talking about actually “doing” anything, except that one tweet about dinner with friends. And even then I’d question the validity.

  4. OLT's It's Fucking BRIGHT Outside The Donkey Show says:

    My father was in Bush’s TANG unit for over 40 years, as an enlisted man (the truly coveted and hard to get spots, although he joined before Vietnam was “hot”, after he left the active duty Air Force). The AF reserves didn’t make much money, but TANG was a steady income (the parents were newlyweds back then, and Mom was still a college student).

    Some years later, he debriefed GW Bush on multiple occasions as part of his normal duties.

    He knew the supposed author of the fake memo extremely well. He knew the secretary that supposedly typed it. He knew the whack-job that pawned it off on Rather’s eager group of idjits.

    In the course of the “scandal”, he got a call from one of Mapes’ minions, and according to my mother reduced the phone to smoldering ashes telling him what he thought of the lies, deceit, and general bullshit the Left was using. God but I wish I could have been there.


    • Arachne says:

      I am going to take Bunk up on his suggestion and actually see the movie (spoiler alert for the TACO Tuesday thread). I’ll write a review for both here, the Mother Ship and maybe even my own blog (which I pay good money for and never write anything).

      OLT – if you could do me a favor and get my email addy from the boss, I would dearly love to get some input from you when I write it.

      • OLT's It's Fucking BRIGHT Outside The Donkey Show says:

        I’ll take a swing at interviewing Dad. He had the grunt’s-eye view of things.

        I will tell you this – he insists that no one used an F-102 pilot slot to hide from VN, and that the pilots were all actively agitating for Palace Alert.

        See this article for an accurate assessment of the facts, and some aircraft geekery:

      • Because olo says:

        Seriously, if you get some good original poop wrapped into a good article, take it to Roger L. Simon at PJM. I know for a fact that he’s always interested in these kinds of things. You can beta test it at the mother ship, but if it’s good, Roger will publish it there.

      • Bunk X says:

        😀 😀 😀

      • Bunk X says:

        There a many venues that would publish and/or link to it. Fact check the hell out of it first.

    • rightymouse says:

      God Bless your Dad for his service and his awesome pounding of Mape’s minion! 🙂

    • ISpeakJive says:

      That’s amazing, OLT. Who was the whack-job who pawned it off on Mapes?
      Looking forward to hearing more.

  5. Juan Epstein says:

    Asks other to report on someone giving him shit in his timeline?

    Does anyone else do that on twitter?

    • Juan Epstein says:

      I mean, all he does is insert himself into everyones TL somehow connecting himself to every event.

    • Arachne says:

      Truthfully, to get the #tcot to report you on Twitter, you have to go completely into the gutter with threats and vulgarity. Most of us merely block people. That’s it. Bye-bye – no having to see you anymore.

      Fatass is all about controlling everyone else.

  6. Because olo says:

    What? No bum leg?

  7. rightymouse says:

    Har! Rush just gave credit to Powerline for breaking the memo hoax.

    • Because olo says:

      Somebody toot that to Tweet.

    • Arachne says:

      I looked at the Powerline story contemporaneous with the day (September 9, 2004)
      The first thing they do is link to Buckhead’s comment 47 at Free Republic. I remember Johnson quoting the comment without attribution to Buckhead.

      Now I know why – he probably lifted it from the Powerline story and didn’t realize who the author was.

      • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

        That is damning. Chunky had zero integrity then, as now. I knew that personally, after he banned me (temporarily, it turned out) in 2005, and then lied about me after he blocked me. Why would he bother lying about me, when I was just having a little fun trolling the angry types in the comments? There was no reason, other than he was and is a dope with no class or honesty.

  8. Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

    Chunky’s business model since the Moronic Conversion. Hasn’t worked awesomely well. 😦

    • rightymouse says:

      Ethel’s a bitch & was a horrible parent. I worked at Hickory Hill in 1978 as a nanny for the four youngest. I never met Bobby Jr. Joe still lived there & commuted back & forth to, I think, Massachusetts. He was a stoner & asked me to get him some Thai sticks. The stories about the dogs are true. None of them were house-broken. I had to be careful walking down the stairs in the morning because one of the dogs may have left a present on the stairs. She had some HUGE black dogs that were fond of crapping in the downstairs guest bathroom. I ran for my life. lol!

      • Arachne says:

        Her brother wasn’t any better up in Greenwich, Connecticut either.

      • rightymouse says:

        My favorite was Douglas. He was such a lost little boy when I was there. Now he’s a jerk just like the rest of them.

      • rightymouse says:

        Joe told me how much he hated his mother one night in the basement where he smoked dope. There was an enormous tortoise down there as well. Anyway, I knew his reputation so I was sure to lock my door at night. 😆

      • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

        Holy crap! That’s an awesome, fearful story, ‘Mouse. You’re lucky you weren’t eaten by the dogs, or killed by a Kennedy. 😯

        I think you should write a book about it. 😆

      • Because olo says:

        Better consult an attorney first. The mighty don’t like to be outed.

      • rightymouse says:

        One of my girlfriends, who helped me get my car unstuck from the Kennedy driveway in winter because Ethel didn’t get it plowed, has always wanted me to write about my time there.

      • Bunk X says:

        There be some giants on this blog.

      • Because olo says:

        I thought those Kennedys were always plowed.

    • Because olo says:

      But climate change!

      • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

        Climate change is for peasants, not American royalty. Take your windmills and stick them…in your backyard, not in sight of our compound.

  9. I disagree…

    It’d have been one thing if he’d just espoused righty talking points for all those years.

    But, for the better part of a decade, CJ spent just as much time attacking and insulting those on the left, in most cases for the very positions he’s now adopted.

    Some folks, like Alan Colmes, probably weren’t aware of the shit he’d posted about him before. A few others may have simply forgiven. The rest, well, may be waiting for some sort of apology, or decided that there’s no way of undoing what’s been done.

    • Because olo says:

      I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but his Magnus Opus “why I parted” did stop short of apology. I don’t think he’s capable of humbling himself. He can say he was duped (which is an admission of dumbth), but he can’t say he’s sorry.

      • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

        I have to agree with Chen, that it’s much more than just the Rather story that bars him admittance to the Kool Kos Kidz Klub (KKKK). Nearly 8 years of hammering the Left, on just about every front, has a lot to do with it. LGF was famous back then, not like now. The bad memories of his continual ripping of the Left during the Bush Years far outweigh any “good memories” of his Moronic Conversion dithering, with no audience to speak of. Well…they’re unspeakable. A putrid blend of troubled teens and old human Grumpy Cats, toeing the line and trying desperately not to say anything non-PC.

  11. pineapple says:

    I guess Trump’s Dallas rally was a yooge success. 20,000 plus people.

    Toot will depict it like this no doubt.

    • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

      He’s not going away, is he? Wow. I never would have believed he was a viable candidate, even a couple months ago. Every election cycle brings a surprise.

      • pineapple says:

        I like him because he’s mollywhopped not only the libtards, but the do nothing RINOs as well.

        I like that he’s an outsider paying his own way.

        I like it when he ignores being PC, in fact he goes out of his way not to be.

        Do I think he’ll make a good president? Not sure, but anything has to be better than the last seven years of total failure we’ve experienced.

        Because Obozo was such a failure as president, Trump is looking real good right about now. Next to a piece of shit, he looks like gold.

      • Because olo says:

        It’s really pretty simple. He says what everybody’s thinking, but unable to say. This is entirely a reaction against the ruling class, and their stifling, censorious PC. That’s it. It’s that simple. It’s not even about the issues, per se. It’s about the obnoxious ruling class, and their phony totalitarianism masquerading as politeness.

      • Because olo says:

        See also: bin Laden, and the “strong horse”.

      • pineapple says:

        I can’t remember what news outlet it was but they were going to report “everything Trump” in the entertainment section.

        I bet they are feeling stupid right about now.

      • pineapple says:

        I found it…… it was Huffpo who relegated Trump to the entertainment section. No surprise there.

        In the process of looking, I found video of the Huffpo latte lapping metro-sexual SWJ editor that made the silly decision…… The Morning Joe panel smacked him pretty hard.

      • pineapple says:

        If you are wondering what SWJ is, it’s the dyslexic version of SJW.

    • rightymouse says:

      Trump is selling himself & he’s good at it. The other candidates could use some salesmanship.

      • Because olo says:

        Don’t underestimate Carly. She’s subtler than teh Donald, but I pity the poor fool who underestimates her. She’d have Biden for breakfast, and then politely burp.

      • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

        Yeah, but who would vote for that face? 😆

      • rightymouse says:

        Is it my imagination or do folks like Megyn Kelly, Dana Loesch & the Twitchy crew lean more towards the predictable middle-road GOP candidates? One thing’s for sure, they do NOT like Trump.

  12. Arachne says:

    I’ve downloaded the Thornburgh/Boccardi report on Rathergate. PLUS the exhibits. What I really, really want to read is the RAW interview between Dan Rather and Bill Burkett.

  13. kbdabear says:

    “Several run-ins”, Toot?

    No, you pounded on your beloved block button and then stalked his timeline to see what he was saying about you, because you run away from those who don’t massage your pitiful ego.

  14. kbdabear says:

    As always, Toot provides no examples such as screenshots or direct comment links. Just links to the zombie blog that say nothing more than the tweet.

    • Arachne says:

      Ah Charles – where would you be without OTHER blogs to make you even remotely relevant.

    • pineapple is almost full on stormfront says:

      Read the comments…… they seem pretty tame to me, and I agree with most of them.

      Of course Fatso says “they’re horrific!”. Run for the hills!!!!

      What a nutcase that guy is.

    This is frightening. I think Gus moved to Conifer. This was on a local forum.

    “Drafting projects wanted. Retired engineer looking for drafting projects–mechanical or architectural–2D AutoCad. If interested, please call 303-838-XXXX for sample work. No 3d at this time.”

    @adamsteinbaugh By the way, now commenting at Chuck’s Facebook page: revenge porn creepazoid Craig Brittain.
    51 minutes ago

    Except he disavows his revenge porn venture.

    Not unlike Fat Chunkles disavows his 8 year foray into being a right wing web master of ceremonies, vicious anti-libturd bashing and anti-Muslim daily screeching rants. Not to mention defending George Bush and especially Sarah Palin, whom he whacked off to daily at the sight of her tight skirts and smooth muscular legs in between love sick defenses of her against the left wing propagandists like the AP, the NY Times and Katie Couric .

    When will Chunky apologize for his Palin lusting porn posts? She’s a married mom Chunk. You should be ashamed.

  20. kbdabear says:

    A still but no video to capture that gotcha moment, Toot?

    • Chunky wishes he weren't fat and Sarah Palin wasn't married to Todd says:

  24. Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

    Everyone has the right idea about you, Fatass. You’re a loony shut-in with no integrity, job, blog or money, begging constantly for money from people who despise you. No money, from the begging, no matter how you prime the pump with anonymous donations. Also, you’re fat. Also, you’re Stabby-Frank. 😆

  25. Pakimon {_(",)_} says:

    Oh noes!

    We’ve sent a message chock full o’ racism and sexism into space!

    The money quote:

    Jill Stuart, an expert in space policy at the London School of Economics, pointed to the plaque that was placed on the Pioneer 10 spacecraft, launched in 1972. Intended to convey the origin of the craft and to impart information about the inhabitants of Earth, Stuart observed that to modern eyes the pictorial message presents some issues. .

    “The plaque shows a man raising his hand in a very manly fashion while a woman stands behind him, appearing all meek and submissive,” she said. “We really need to rethink that with any messages we are sending out now. Attitudes have changed so much in just 40 years.”

    The plaque also clearly portrays the human figures as white, and Stuart added: “I would be uncomfortable with sending out any images or messages that include Western-dominated material.”

    But what’s this?!

    The Breakthrough Initiative, organised by Russian entrepreneur Yuri Milner, is a $100m project to utilise the best radio telescopes to listen out for alien communications – and he is offering a $1m prize for the best idea for a message to broadcast to whoever is out there.

    $1 million dollars?!

    This could be the answer to all of Chunkles’ money woes!

    He can send a plaque into space featuring his 15 year old avatar for he is the very essence of the modern, progressive man seeking truth and social justice!

    His luxurious jazzy ponytail will represent the female of our species so an actual representation would not be needed.

    Of course, depictions of various artisanal cheeses and and avocados would be required to establish his “bona-fides” to any intelligent life that may be out there.

    Alas, he gave Ludwig “the stick” awhile back so the scientific knowledge required for such an endeavor is not readily available.

    That’s a good thing.

    We’d be obligated to send up a plaque in reponse featuring the current bloated visage of The Chunkster accompanied by an obese woman in a burka and festooned with images of Cheetos and urine filled Mountain Dew bottles.

    Doing such a thing would seriously deplete the DoD Bacon-Beer-Cake-Ass fund. 😆

    • Octopus ¯\_(''-)_/¯ says:

      But what if we started a GoFundMe, and tweeted out pleas for donations ten times a day for six months, as Chunky has done? Surely we could raise the price of a digitally-encoded video short, we could then broadcast into space with a rig similar to the one constructed by E.T., back in the ’80’s. “Phone home.” Or, just phone “the home,” and tell them we have a monstrously-fat, senile old hippie we need to drop off.
