DailyKos #Weinergate Denial: A Beautiful Thing

They never learn. THEY. NEVER. LEARN.

A diary goes up asking the logical #Weinergate question…why is Weiner refusing to answer questions?

we-denial

And greeted with comments like…

You have just been reported to admins. (22+ / 0-)

Eff off, jerk.

I ? President Barack Obama.

Basic question (7+ / 0-)

When Weiner is vindicated will you write a diary that unequivocally acknowledges that fact and repudiate your current diaries and comments?

Dude, you are a serious asshole. (3+ / 0-)

Fun Fact: I don’t actually even care if Wiener was sexting with another consenting adult.

Fuck off, now, on ya go!

So he says to me, do you wanna be a BAD boy? And I say YEAH baby YEAH! Surf’s up space ponies! I’m makin’ gravy WITHOUT THE LUMPS! HAAA-ha-ha-ha!!!

maybe the reason he doesn’t answer (4+ / 0-)

is because that dignifying something like that with a response would imply that it’s ok to ask questions like that in the first place (thanks joan allen!)

in other news, i think i’ll have chinese food for lunch today and my old dog stella is walking a lot better than she was yesterday.

hope springs eternal and DAMN is she getting tired!

Might I humbly suggest to the diarist (5+ / 0-)

that he masturbate using a pair of scissors.

Obama, the torturer-in-chief.

  • Kos tweeted about this story yesterday (8+ / 0-)

    He said something like it was better (for him) to wait to see what comes out factually before blogging about it.

    According to Reuters, and contrary to what the diarist is saying (and BTW, I agree with the diarist that hacking and harassment are not laughing matters), Congressman Weiner has made comments to the press.  He’s not ducking, he’s hired an attorney to investigate the tweet, and Congressman Weiner said:

    "Look, this is a prank, not a terribly creative one and it’s a distraction," Weiner said on NY1 TV.

    And that is why he’s not saying anything more (at the moment).  The economy, jobs creation, war spending, global warming, these all trump him commenting now about the tweet. Get it?

    Failure to Publicize Acts of Hatred Only Allows Them to Fester and Metastasize.

  • I think Breitbart is due for an epic take down (7+ / 0-)

    Jon Stewart style…..

    a la Glenn Beck and Jim Cramer.

    Jon and Anthony were college roommates.

    If cats could blog, they wouldn’t

  1. I repeat myself from yesterday (I think) on Twitter: my biggest complaint with DKos is this constant banning of dissenting voices (“YOU HAVE JUST BEEN REPORTED TO ADMINS. (22+ / 0-)”). This is the vacuum, the echo chamber. I don’t have a problem with ideological bent left or right, what I have a problem with is when you desire to be right all the time so much that it demands constant elimination of those that might disagree. BUT, it’s their (progs) site, they tell you that up front, so it should come as no surprise.

  2. Progressive doesn’t have to mean ‘impervious to reason’

  3. If you think DKos is an echo chamber you should take a look over at Little Green Idiots (LGF).
    Johnson turned what was once one of the top blogs into what the NY Times recently called “the blog version of Animal Farm”.

  4. I’ve never really read that site — funny description, though

  5. Lee,

    LGF – run by Charles Johnson – was one of the go-to blogs on the Right during the early years of the blogosphere, and post-9/11.

    In fact, it was Johnson’s movable .gif of the TANG memos – the 60 Minutes version overlayed with the same text entered into Microsoft Word default settings – that provided definitive proof the documents were fake.

    Charles was always a liberal, but 9/11 woke him up and he became a hawk when it came to radical Islam. Somewhere around 2006 or so, he just went off the rails. He started banning anybody who disagreed with him, spent an inordinate amount of time fixated on creationism vs evolution and basically became a Turd of the First Order.

    Many long-time regulars haven’t visited LGF in years, and he’s become more of a joke than anything else.

  6. Oh, on the subject?

    Does it ever occur to the people at Kos that maybe – just maybe – Weiner did do what he’s accused of?

    Or if not, maybe – just maybe – a Congressperson being hacked is a serious matter no matter what the party? That we shouldn’t just shrug it off as a distraction?

    You’d think if Weiner’s story was true, the Left would be all over themselves to find out who did this. You know. To find out what evil person on the Right put a progressive politician’s life, marriage and career in jeopardy?

    Yet somehow, they’re not.

  7. Did it ever occur to anyone here that we don’t do trolls over at DKos? Especially Breitbart and Stranahan clones?
    No, I guess it didn’t.

    Ironically enough (0+ / 3-)
    it is. jihadsux (way too unsubtle of a good trolling name) can’t come close to my trolling skills.

    But I understand why you all would think we’re the same.

    JIhadsux, if you’re reading this, there’s only room for one troll in this town.

    In a word: no.
