[Hint: It’s round on the ends and high in the middle.]
Charles Johnson has been spazzing out for the past few days trying to defend radical islam and find targets to attack (including -surprise- Pamela Geller, Jim Hoft, Glenn Beck and the late Andrew Breitbart). Because the terrorists were self-described radical islamists, Charles just can’t bring himself to call them what they are: MUSLIM TERRORISTS.
What motivated the terrorists? Really? How ’bout radical islam, Chuck? C’mon, say it.
SAY IT LIKE YOU DID FOR EIGHT YEARS.
Only a few hours previously, Charles claimed that conservatives wanted the surviving fugitive terrorist alive in order to torture him for intel.
Charles you’re rocking now. Please don’t stop.

Update: Conditions for Revocation of US Citizenship
Daedalus Addendum: Charles takes a shot at Pam Geller in a post about the capture of Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
Pam Geller is the center of Charles Johnson’s world. He ties her to every current event as if she’s responsible for all the world’s ills. The truth is he still can’t get over the fact she has rejected him.
Get a life loser!
Update: It’s a Downding Festival!
This is Part 1 of a multi-part monograph about a blog named Little Green Footballs and its founder Charles Foster Johnson. Although he will likely consider it a “hit-piece,” the intention is nothing of the sort. The purpose is merely to illustrate a microcosm of the blogosphere, the history and dynamics of a once-prominent blog and its founder, without judgment, prejudice, hyperbole, vitriol or snark. We’ve attempted to present an unbiased story based on factual evidence, citing sources when necessary.
Some of the following is by necessity purely anecdotal and/or speculative; however, objectivity is the goal. We don’t intend for this monograph to be a comprehensive summary of the history of Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs, as it spans more than a decade. There’s just too much to cover in detail, so we’ve chosen to illustrate specific events – a general timeline with commentary.
This documentary was compiled over a span of months (indeed some of the referenced work goes back years) with the majority written prior to the untimely demise of Andrew Breitbart. Those sections where he is mentioned have not been rewritten to reflect his passing.
So with that out of the way, let’s take a curious trip down memory lane. –Ed.
