Wow. I never thought that the volume of the absurd and deliberate ignorance of Charles F. Johnson could surpass 11, but it just did.
Comey played a “MAJOR” role in getting Hillary Clinton exonerated from verified corruption charges, and exposed the FBI as a political puppet. Comey did more damage to the credibility of the FBI than anyone in modern history, yet, according to Charles Johnson, Comey enabled the election of Donald J. Trump, despite the fact that he did everything in his power to prevent it.
Charles, you’re a mess.
Charles Johnson’s Twitter feed is going to be a hoot. Get ’em, cap ’em & post ’em.
In 2007, Charles Johnson was all over the 2008 Presidential campaign, cranking out posts like a kindergartner on a 3-day glucose bender with a mouth full of wheat paste and safety scissors. Everyone breathlessly awaited each brilliant assessment of the candidates, and we weren’t disappointed.
[Oops. Sorry. Forgot to crop the sponsored “Promoted Stories” before posting the screencap. Yeah, that’s the ticket.]
The first link leads to Yahoo News (it’s dead now).
The second “Update” was a headline lifted verbatim from HotAir & Allahpundit:
The CNN YouTube freak show debate; Update: Private jet show of hands video added; Update: Biden tells gun owner he “needs help”; Update: I’ll meet with Castro, Chavez, Ahmadinejad, says Obama
Charles Johnson blocked thread comments from public view on that post a long time ago, but the BRC has ways of resurrecting his hidden/memory-holed files. There was only one comment out of 510 posted by Charles Johnson on that thread, and here it is:
A couple months later, Johnson posted this:
Here’s the YouTube video, as appropriate today as it was in 2007.
“There’s medical evidence that Hillary Clinton is a man.” That’s a bit of a stretch, but apparently Johnson found it credible and linked to it anyway. One year later, the metamorphosis was complete:
Apparently Charles IS down with this:
That’s former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau on the left, and he thinks Donald Trump is “gross.”
Keep it real, Charles. Can’t wait until you jump on the Bernie bus and blow out the rear tires.

An Epic Failure by the Race Detective – he misses an example of real racism coming from two of his favorite politiciansPosted: April 12, 2016
Charles F. Johnson aka Mr. Toot, aka The Race Detective sees Nazis, racists, and assorted bigots all over the place. Yet how did he miss this piece of “white sheets bigotry”? Somehow I suspect that the “Raaaaacism” radar he operates is defective and does not catch vile bigotry coming form the Left. By the way, the way things are going in America it is entirely possible we can one day have a President Bill de Blasio.
A Hillary Clinton joke about Bill de Blasio’s support is drawing a racial backlash.
During a weekend press/political dinner that traditionally features skits, Clinton joked to de Blasio about the New York mayor’s tardiness in supporting her, saying “thanks for the endorsement, Bill … took you long enough.”
“Sorry, Hillary,” de Blasio said. “I was running on C.P. time” — a comment that some believed referred to “Colored People time,” drawing gasps from the crowd.
Leslie Odom Jr., an African-American actor in the hit Broadway play “Hamilton” who was also part of the skit, replied: “I don’t like jokes like that, Bill.”
To which Clinton jumped in with the kicker: “Cautious Politician time — I’ve been there.”
The bit did not go over well. New York magazine called it “amazingly unfunny” and “terribly executed,” while some Bernie Sanders supporters have called it downright racist.
“Speaking on CNN on Monday evening, Mr. de Blasio said that the exchange was part of a scripted event and that all parties were in on the joke, with “cautious politician” being the intended punchline.
“‘I think people are missing the point here,’ he said.
“The joke came just days after Bill Clinton clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters who accused him of advancing policies during his administration that hurt African-American communities. A day later, the former president said he ‘almost’ wanted to apologize to the activists.
“Mrs. Clinton has overwhelmingly won the support of black voters and will be counting on them again next week in New York.”
Who is Susan Milligan you might ask? She is a Hillary flack who works at U.S. News & World Report (I was shocked that that magazine was still in existence) who spins Hillary’s lack of accomplishments at the State Department by defining the role of Secretary of State as “making sure nothing goes wrong on his or her watch” and agrees with Chris Matthews that it is “too bad that she was not tough enough on Benjamin Netanyahu” (who happens to be more pro American than anyone in the Obama administration or at Little Green Footballs for that matter). Maybe Susan Milligan and Charles Johnson ought to get together for dinner – come to think of it given his finances and personal hygiene that is not a good idea.
Good News, Hillary’s No Longer Running on Experience
by Daniel Greenfield
The “Hillary’s Accomplishments” question really gets under the media’s skin. It’s why Hillary is running a corporate branding media tour instead of an actual campaign. The latest media talking point tries to flip the narrative around, but only makes it worse .
U.S. News & World Report’s Susan Milligan wildly spun for Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton on the May 20 edition of Hardball when she insisted that the fact that her supporters in a recent focus-group survey by Bloomberg TV cannot name a single accomplishment of hers as Secretary of State is, well, “unfair.”
Indeed, Milligan insisted, the job of Secretary of State is essentially to make sure nothing major goes wrong on his or her watch.
Does the word “Benghazi” ring a bell? The Reset Button with Russia? The Middle East going up in flames?
Milligan wants Hillary to take a Mulligan, but that still doesn’t work. If Hillary is to be measured by things not going wrong on her watch, that’s actually worse than trying to find her accomplishments in a haystack.
MATTHEWS: Hey, Obama didn’t have a big accomplishment before he got elected.
BACON: Exactly. You already know what she’s for.
Sure. Let’s use the most unqualified guy in the Oval Office in history as your example. But Hillary’s whole gambit was claiming experience. So now we’re dropping experience and trying to sell Hillary as another Obama?
And even better, “we already know what she’s for.” Like gay marriage. Or the Iraq War. Or any other issue she randomly switches sides on.
MATTHEWS: I wish she hadn’t left it to John Kerry to stand up to Netanyahu, though.
MATTHEWS: A little tougher on him would have been good for the country.
The one thing Hillary didn’t do right was not be anti-Israel enough. There’s a campaign slogan in there somewhere.
Back to the original questions [Briareus]:
1. What has Hillary accomplished besides ascending Mount Everest, and
2. Who is Susan Milligan?
Charles has been a good little soldier supporting the “Great Mother” in her quest for the Presidency. However, he is not impressed by Hillary’s logo.
Charles may not like her, but he will do all in his power to have her elected.
The Swamp was discussing The Restoration Act [Senate Bill S.1982] of 2015 and how the 114th Congress GOP majority defeated it. The proposed Act expands VA benefits to veterans injured outside of military service to include injuries sustained in the private sector and more. Nevermind that the same Bill was defeated in the 113th Dem-controlled Congress, and finding the vote tallies (from both 2014 and 2015) escapes my random sleuthing because I’d rather talk about Little Green Footballs.
Seems that Charles has updated his downdinger algorithm to automatically hide contrarian points of view, i.e., those who are deluged with LGF negative karma downdings like Dork Falcon.
[BTW, lizard “WhatEVs” (aka “Just Jay”) needs a lesson on Sciency Things. One strand of DNA from VJJ’s hair can exculpate/exonerate him/her as one of Charles Johnson’s progeny. I suggest that VJJ stop spitting out his/her Sugar-Free Trident and start policing his/her local sidewalks just in case the wads are one of his/her own and he/she’s got an outstanding traffic warrant or worse. Just sayin’.]
So what eggshell did Dork Falcon step on to deserve The New Little Green Footballs Hide Function? This:
Yeah, Dork Falcon missed the point completely, but he’s there as an example as to what may happen to one’s honestly posted opinions on Little Green Footballs.
Oh, I almost forgot – Hillary’s Billseye Un-Photoshopped Target Pants. Stay clear of that squid beak.
