Not much original content found at The Swamp these days – it’s all cut and paste echotropes from the leftwing feed troughs. It used to be fun to see what the most downdinged comments were, but since downdings are now verboten, those gems are rare, and all we have left to check the pulse of the Greatest Blog In History are the most updinged posts. They produce similar results, at least for the purposes of our own mockery, like this inanity:
Yeah, that’s what Little Green Footballs is all about these days. No sentient discussion, no original thought, all echos and unsubstantiated political tropes and stereotypes. Congratulations, Charles. You’ve completely purged your website of any recognizable form of intellect.
Now update your avatar.
Charles, you don’t read here, but your eye for balance and colour is amazing. Please post more of your artistry. Better yet, post a video of your musical compositions with images. What have you got to lose?
Judging by your Alexa stats, not much. BTW, you don’t have James Brown hair, so at least you’ve got that going for you.
The largest dinosaur footprint found to date was discovered in Australia recently. This previously unknown species has been named Mannulus Cauda Johnsonia for obvious reasons.
The answer is NO.
Charles Johnson never saved anything, including his credibility, self-respect and his own blog. Almost six years ago he beclowned himself in defense of Rep. Anthony Weiner, and we all know how that turned out.
Recent reports suggest that Weiner‘s proxy wife Huma Abedin “is working hard” to get them back together, now that the political heat is off. I suspect that her husband of convenience is doing the *ahem* same.
Meanwhile, Charles’ original Tweet is still functioning, unlike his neocortex.
Yeah, that classic deserves many more retweets than it’s received. Now about that dated avatar, Charles…
[h/t Chen Zhen for preserving the twitterlinky and stuff.]
Yeah, Charles. Let’s “reap the whirlwind.”
But let’s talk about this instead. You want to ‘splain your one degree of separation from convicted felons?
Yeah, this crap has been going on for a long while. You erased the entire history of your own @lizardoid Twitter account to hide it, and that means what?
It means that you’re a complete mess, Charles.
A lot of things have changed in The Swamp, besides a fatter logo, new formatting flaws and floods of adware, so I put on the dumpster diving suit and decided to have a look at The New Little Green Footballs.
In years past, Diary of Daedalus could find easy fodder for new posts just by eyeballing the downdings, but those days are gone. It’s rare to find a comment with a red negative, and that means that either Charles Johnson is squelching them or he’s finally achieved homogeneity. (For you wags who think I just called him a homo, I didn’t as far as you know.)
So here’s an offensive post that earned ONE downding:
Yeah. Downdinged for calling Kim Jong Imbecile’s reprehensible excuse for a government as “The NORKS.” I wonder who downdinged it. On the other hand, updings are up. Here’s the top one:
If you squint, it looks like a blue frog with fire coming out of its eyes. I don’t know who this innocent is, but she’s got a ways to go with artistry and composition, so I’ll try to help out. Here’s the first rule:
As for cropping, I added wider tape for the borders as requested. I don’t see a problem with what she did, but again, I’m willing to help, with virtual duct tape.
Next, let’s do something simple. Let’s put a suit and tie on it.
Now you have something to sell to the effete aficionados and it’s hella better than that screaming blue and orange garbage we started out with. Chop it down and dress it up. That’s how you art.
The first lesson is free, Charles.
