Meanwhile, on RWNJ Media: Manafort? Who Dat? Podesta Is the Scandal!
Maybe I should do this every Monday. I’m usually in a good mood after a weekend, and I can emotionally take submerging myself into the Fever Swamps to see WTF the batshit-crazy wingnuts are babbling about, in their increasingly desperate attempts to pretend that EVERYTHING IS FINE and HILARY MUST BE LOCKED UP NOWZ!!!
So. Let’s sort of ease our way into this, shall we? At Drudge Report, they at least make a show of connecting to objecting reality. Manafort leads off the news, but about 1/2 way down, you start seeing the counter-narrative emerging: that the Judge is an Obama appointee, etc. etc.
At the Daily Caller, the REAL scandal is that John Podesta resigned! And he was the real connection to Manafort! Not Trump! Never Trump!
Fox News, perhaps responding to the spot-on critiques that they ignore anything that damages “the narrative,” has put Manafort into the headline.
However, all the subheads are calculated diversions. Not so much news stories, as attempts to muddy the waters by putting out counter-narratives that will allow conservatives to assuage their consciences over supporting a Communist Russian takeover of the US government.
Also: Kevin Spacey is gay and got drunk & made a pass at a kid 30 years ago.
Brace yourselves. We’re about to get really dirty.
Breitbart has gotten the memo about today’s diversionary tactic as well. Apparently, John Podesta was the real target of the Mueller probe! Who knew? The rest of the site seems dedicated to uncovering SEX SCANDALS IN HOLLYWOOD! OMG!
The rubes reading Breitbart know who they really hate - smartypants liberals! Those the real enemy! The popular kids who have good jobs and don’t live in a constant state of desperate hatred for anyone who has half a brain!
Finally, if you’re wondering WTF Jim Hoft is up to, then … well, there’s something wrong in your life, and seek counseling. I plead guilty to this. Still (sigh) I guess we gotta plumb the depths of the Stupidest Man On The Internet just to see wtf awful chain-mail we’ll all be getting from Crazy Uncle in the next week or so …
In Dim Jim’s tiny little shitbrain, this is all a WITCH HUNT and Mueller is a CROOKED COP and Trump’s people are always beating liberals, shutting down those damn smartypants and and and (cough gag blech)
If you really want to have your genitals shrivel up and fall off, click and read the comment threads. I won’t. Nope. Learned my lesson. Not going there again.
Time as usual, for the mid-day Silkwood-style scrubdown.
