WHEN MARMOSETS ATTACK
CATEGORY: Media, Moonbats

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Lambchop and TT-Boy at a recent strategy meeting of left wing bloggers.

It’s been a while since I’ve felt the need to fend off the chigger bites and gnat stings of some of my friends on the left. Oh, there has been the odd snarky comment, the snide reference to some post or other that the dufus either never bothered to read or couldn’t understand. But frankly, I’ve felt neglected of late by the port side of the sphere. In fact, I was getting worried that I was losing my ability to get a rise out netnuts.

It’s not been for lack of trying, I assure you. It’s just that it seems I’ve been getting a helluva lot more criticism from my friends on the right than the unhinged crowd on the left recently. Perhaps this says more about the inability the left to understand words containing more than 2 or 3 syllables than the unsettled nature of conservatism at present.

At any rate, my post on Marcotte below - specifically my update where I link Terry’s piece that asks some rather uncomfortable questions that the lefties have deigned to ignore entirely - has really flushed the cockroaches out from under the floorboards and sent them scurrying hither and thither, making a stink about my links to Dan Riehl and Michelle Malkin’s compilation of bigoted Marcottisms as well as making the charge that Terry and I somehow coordinated our posts, echoing each other’s talking points.

Terry is a big boy and can take care of himself. He hardly needs (nor, I imagine, wants) any input or “coordination” with me.

As for my linking Dan and Michelle, it is certainly a curious way to delegitimize any of my arguments by trying to say that Marcotte’s own words, which was the reason for my linking those posts in the first place, are somehow less bigoted, less hateful, less of a problem for her if they appear on blogs that the lefties don’t approve. The reason that is “ironic” escapes me as I’m sure it does most people with an IQ higher than your average marmoset.

This, of course, removes TT-Boy from that list:

Rick “The Lesser” Moran writes about Amanda and then he invites his readers to go see the ever-sensible Michelle Malkin and Dan Riehl.

I could have stayed up all night and not come up with anything near that funny…

The fact that TT Boy does indeed stay up all night in his job as grocery store stocker means that he truly can’t come up with anything near as funny as Marcotte’s nauseating, hate filled rants that I linked at those two websites. I’m sure if he really put his mind to it (or checked his archives) he could come close.

Meanwhile Atrios, about whom Chris Bowers gushed:

“Atrios has somehow managed to put up twelve posts a day, every day, for five years. A superhuman effort few can match.”

Well, let me play Superman for a moment and try to match the “twelve posts” put up by Duncan Black every day..

1. Open Thread
2. Open Thread
3. Open Thread
4. Bush Sucks! No more War.
5. Open Thread
6. Open Thread
7. Open Thread
8. Conservatives are Poopies!
9. Open Thread
10. Open Thread
11. Beware the Theocrats!
12. Open Thread
13. Open Thread

Befitting my Superhuman abilities, I went and did Mr. Black one better.

At any rate, The Reverend Mr. Black has made Terry “Wanker of the Day” calling him my “sock puppet.” A singular honor for which Terry is, I’m sure, grateful although since we disagree on almost every issue under the sun, that sock sure has a lot of holes in it - perhaps as many as we could find in Mr. Black’s head.

Yes, it sure is great to be back in the left’s bad graces. Now I can sit back and enjoy all the ever more imaginative insults and verbal bric-a-brats hurled in my direction, secure in the knowledge that when it comes to pissing off the lickspittle left, I haven’t lost my touch.

UPDATE

Terry responds to his critics here.

Well done, brother. And thanks.

    What is it, exactly, that has the left in a froth over Marcotte, anyway?

    I understand their need to defend the rights of puerile, mediocre bloggers (otherwise, what are they left with?) but this is getting ridiculous.

    What I found ironic in your linking to Riehl and Malkin is that they are right wing versions of Marcotte and generally not taken particularly seriously by anyone not of a right wing persuasion. I will admit, however, that Malkin’s reading of Marcotte’s posts was pretty funny.

    Well done by both Brothers Moran. Different sides of the aisle yet common sense wins out. Refreshing.
    Family over politics.

    April Ginsberg Said:
    11:55 pm 

    Steven Donegal is so right, but I must admit it has been hilarious watching the unhinged Malkin over the last few days. We really have gotten to experience the full essence of “her” and what she is really all about. Shrill unwrapped in-your-face-divide-and-conquer ranting and raving about things that, quite frankly, are really none of her business. She is not a Democrat, why the unwrapped behavior over John Edward’s campaign? Is she changing parties? (Please God, make her a Democrat already).

    The old saying goes if you give them enough rope they will surely hang themselves or better yet, it’s never a good idea to wrestle with a pig, you don’t accomplish anything and the pig enjoys it.

    I just really wish these crazies were not apart of my party, Malkin & Co have done nothing beneficial for the GOP, they have actually hindered it. This idea that the Right Wing Fringe has to not only silence, but destroy everyone who doesn’t share their views is just debilitating to the Republican Party in the long run.

    I mean this girl/woman has a blog entry entitled -

    “Subversive knitting” and she is calling it “‘Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting”, the new left-wing hobby.

    C’mon, she will look for controversy and unrest in a silly art exhibit, not even painting, it’s fabric art.

    Don’t you think as Republicans we deserve better? I know she is only a blogger but I would prefer she would be writing for the otherside. She’s unwrapped.

  12. 12
    Ken McCracken Said:
    2:45 am 

    Riehl and Malkin have never written anything half as incendiary as Marcotte’s addled, bigoted, profanity-laced tirades.

    Your attempt at fostering some kind of equivalance here just blew up on the launching pad.

  13. 13
    April Ginsberg Said:
    10:36 am 

    “Riehl and Malkin have never written anything half as incendiary as Marcotte’s addled, bigoted, profanity-laced tirades.”

    And isn’t Marcotte a Democrat? Malkin’s rants are getting there, close to the crazy, nasty, take-out-anyone-who-disagrees-with-me tone.

    Reihl I never commented on.

    And why do you guys care who John Edwards hires? He was a Democrat also the last time I checked. I don’t get it, why does it matter?

  14. 14
    April Ginsberg Said:
    10:40 am 

    “Your attempt at fostering some kind of equivalance here just blew up on the launching pad.”

    I don’t think so, why are you so concerned with what the opposition is doing when it will only hurt them in the long run? Am I wrong, I don’t get the method to Malkin’s madness.

  15. 15
    Ken McCracken Said:
    12:36 pm 

    Sorry, was responding to Steve Donegal actually. Your comments slipped in between there.

    I could care less who Edwards hires as a blogger. Perhaps it is good politics for the Republicans if Edwards keeps a trollish little bigot on his staff.

    But saying that Malkin’s commment on the ability of leftists to turn even fabric arts into politically correct nonsense is somehow the equivalent of Marcotte’s bigoted anti-catholicism is just plain silly.

  16. 16
    Bill Arnold Said:
    2:15 pm 

    Do you have something against marmosets? A 1985 paper suggests that marmoset intelligence had previously been underestimated, or in the words of the authors, “Optimal foraging theory is less likely to be an overestimate of animals’ mental capacities than previous studies are an underestimate.”

  17. 17
    April Ginsberg Said:
    4:23 pm 

    “But saying that Malkin’s commment on the ability of leftists to turn even fabric arts into politically correct nonsense is somehow the equivalent of Marcotte’s bigoted anti-catholicism is just plain silly.”

    Her comments are ridiculous. Who the hell cares abour fabric art, what does that have to do, with anything?? It’s silly banter. She’s unhinged. Is she competeing with Marcotte to see who is the most inane? Again, am I missing something?

  18. 18
    Ken McCracken Said:
    5:38 pm 

    Your complaint about Malkin seems to be that she is ‘inane’ because she is blogging about something trivial.

    Well, I have blogged about chocolate before - does that make me ‘inane’ and ‘unhinged’ as well?

    Again, this is as bad as insulting the catholic religion how, exactly?

  19. 19
    April Ginsberg Said:
    7:46 pm 

    “Well, I have blogged about chocolate before – does that make me ‘inane’ and ‘unhinged’ as well?”

    But I will bet you dollars to donuts you didn’t put the chocolate into political context, i.e., only stupid libs eat chocolate, or eating chocolate is for moonbats, or making chocolate is for Arab sympathizers. or as Republicans and Conservatives we should be ashamed to eat chocolate.

    She is unhinged, she writes about things that clearly do not matter, like a jr high school girlly-girl. Again, why should we Republicans concern ourselves with a misstep made by John Edwards’ campaign? Why are we giving John Edwards our opinion and our help??

    Why would his mistakes concern her or us? is this just for the sake of ranting about it or again, is there justifible reason behind all of her schoolgirl-like-trivial whining?

    Again, please clue me into the method of her maddness because I am just not getting it. Seems so childish, seems like something The Left would do and it seems like we deserve better performance from our bloggers on The Right as we gear up for 2008.

  20. 20
    April Ginsberg Said:
    7:53 pm 

    Hey Ken, I just read your chocolate piece, after posting.

    I personally love Hershey Bars with almonds, they taste different than the bar without almonds, which aren’t that good. I personally like the almond bar, think you should try it. The Symphony Bar is pretty good, but then again I am not a chocolate expert. But one thing I believe, chocolate should not be used in the political context to divide our nation.

    But leave it up to your buddy Michelle and I bet you somehow she would find a way to do it and then some. She would have all the candy bars divided up into Right and Left categories, she’s unhinged.

  21. 21
    Ken McCracken Said:
    1:09 am 

    I think the Symphony bar is a much better product than the regular Hershey bar, either with or without almonds.

    But . . . euro chocolate in general is just far better, for which I blame the Democrats.

    Not sure exactly how they are to blame, but I am sure it is their fault.

  22. 22
    …getting paid to watch » The Brothers Moran: Love and Family Before Politics Pinged With:
    1:13 pm 

    [...] Terry Moran is a televison news reporter for ABC News and his brother Rick is a successful right leaning blogger. Recent events have brought them together and held up for comparison, but the brothers would have nothing of it and defended the other - despite their political differences. Good for them and thanks to Michelle Malkin for tying the story together so well.    [...]

    “But . . . euro chocolate in general is just far better, for which I blame the Democrats.

    Not sure exactly how they are to blame, but I am sure it is their fault.”

    That is ridiculous, my husband, my mother and father and my boss, all Republicans, blame Bush and The Far Right/Christian Right for everything that is wrong in this country.

    That is also unhinged.

  24. 24
    Ken McCracken Said:
    7:21 pm 

    It wasn’t unhinged April, it was a joke.

    Sheesh.

  25. 25
    April Ginsberg Said:
    2:21 am 

    I was talking about my parents who are generational Republicans. My mother hates the Far Right Fringe, she thinks they are destroying the GOP. I don’t hate them I just wish they would become Democrats, as they should.

    If Michelle Malkin became a Democrat I would throw a party and invite 1000 people. It would be the celebration of all celebrations.

  26. 26
    April Ginsberg Said:
    2:37 am 

    My mother’s family, she and her siblings, all campaigned for like Dewey and Eisenhower and she and my Dad campaigned for Rockefeller for Governor.

    She is old school, refined, comes from a different time, doesn’t take well to the Radical Right. My Mom is the type of Republican lady who adores Nancy Reagan and thinks Ann Coulter is as vulgar as Hillary Clinton.
