Johnson can play guitar. So it’s painful to do this. But whatever…
Chuckles mistook a menu sign for a computer and refused to correct the record. It’s incredibly obvious but once again, Chuckles uses selective editing…of himself.
He says…(referring to me)
And he claimed that I mistook a menu sign for a computer. But did I?
Here’s what I wrote:
One of those people was right wing flamethrower Ann Coulter. Here’s Anthony’s photo of Coulter reacting to the picture; notice that his computer is apparently there, but Breitbart is nowhere to be seen.
Chuckles wants you to think that he didn’t say ‘laptop computer’ and did tell his readers that he tells them to notice ‘his computer’ is apparently there.
Here’s the screencap from his original post…
Notice: at no point in my post did I identify the menu board as a computer. This is a pure assumption by Stranahan — he saw the menu board in the picture and simply leaped to the conclusion that I was referring to it, when I wrote that Coulter was reacting to the picture and that Breitbart’s computer was “apparently there.”
Let’s parse. Shall we?
In graf 1, Chuckles sets the time and place – 2 days ago, out drinking. Then he says Andrew Breitbart left his laptop computer unattended. Got that? Then in the next graf, he continues the thought from graf 1 – and says ‘notice his computer is apparently there.
Which computer is he referring to that he wants you, dear reader, to notice?
I will use my Fancy Graphic Tricks to make the words laptop computer very big.
I have to do that because – go read this post – he doesn’t mention anywhere that he said ‘laptop computer. He edits out the whole first graf from his original post.
Breitbart’s computer was “apparently there” because Ann Coulter was reacting to the Weiner photo. Was it a cell phone, not a computer? Could be, but the distinction is ridiculously trivial — and the claim that I misidentified a menu board as a computer is simply false.
This is a perfect example of a dishonest argument: focusing on a tiny detail, claiming it’s incorrect, then doing a victory dance and pretending that the entire argument has been debunked.
I answered this point days ago. Again, Chuckles pretends this post doesn’t exist.
And then – Chuckles delivers the coup de fricking patheticist thing ever.
And by the way, modern smartphones are computers, if we’re really going to get pedantic about it.
But they aren’t laptop computers.
And why not just say ‘smart phone’ – as in ‘notice that his smart phone is apparently there.’
Was that so hard?
But you said ‘laptop computer’. Wow, man. Please, go practice scales. Shred. But stop humiliating yourself.
