Mad Scientist Calls for ‘Murderous Rampage’ Against Watchdog Group

I gotta be me, as the douchebag credo goes.”
Ace of Spades

In November, the Franklin Center’s Tori Richards and Earl Glynn did a Colorado Watchdog report on National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. Richards and Glynn revealed the exorbitant salaries paid to top officials of this little-known Carter-era “green energy” boondoggle:

NREL’s top executive, Dr. Dan Arvizu, makes close to a million dollars per year. His two top lieutenants rake in more than half a million each and nine others make more than $350,000 a year. . . .
NREL’s taxpayer-funded management company has seen its budget more than double since 2006. That’s when one of its most ardent supporters, Rep. Ed Perlmutter D-Lakewood, was first elected to Congress. The lab sits in the middle of his district.

Read the whole report. This exercise in investigative journalism did not please 34-year-old NREL employee Kerrilee Ann Crosby, who used her Twitter account (@crosbolicious) to make disturbingly violent suggestions about the organization that published the report:

“Have you ever felt like going on a murderous rampage? Start at @WatchdogCO‘s offices. They perpetuate lies like this,”  Kerrilee Ann Crosby tweeted last month while working at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
“You guys are f***ing retarded. You are the Fox News of blogs. At first I thought I was reading The Onion, but no not the case,” Crosby continued. . . .
Crosby started working at NREL two years ago and now has a job in the technology department where she is a faculty member. . . .
“The person who wrote the tweets in question is employed at NREL in a non-supervisory staff position,” NREL spokesperson George Douglas acknowledged in an email to “Her opinions do not represent those of the Laboratory. She has been found in violation of NREL’s policy on social networking and appropriate action is being taken.” . . .
[Crosby’s] Twitter feed is filled with dozens of tweets per day that appear during the business hours. They detail graphic sex, love of alcohol, and the Denver music scene, and bemoan her lackluster dating life. . . .
[S]he posted this about her job at NREL: “In our weekly meetings I play this lil game called How Much Can I Fart In This Leather Chair And Get Away W/ It. Works best with a hangover.”
Crosby did not respond to requests for an interview and has since deleted her Linkedin profile and set her Twitter page to private.

Read the whole thing. This civil servant is employed with your tax dollars. Her Twitter account is still online, if you’d care to send greetings:

    Of course she does, she watched TV saw the Unions in Michigan and learned her lessons well

    This is why I always tell people that there is no physical active Leftist conspiracy loose in the land. The indoctrinations that have been carried on by the Left in all the institutions of Society have molded people like Mzzz’es Crosby and Fluke, et. al. to do the Left’s bidding instinctively.

    The Leftist army has very few brigade commanders, but every grunt has their manual implanted in their souls.

  • FenelonSpoke

    So many liberals so desperately in need of healing.

  • Dai Alanye

    Perhaps the weird thinking explains her lack of social success. If there’s anything I hate it’s a good-looking woman with bizarre mental processes. Such a waste of pulchritude.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Always watch out for the redheads – there’s always some wacky code lying somewhere in their minds.

  • K-Bob

    Ima type something stupid on th’ internets.

    Nobody will see it there, right?.

  • Christopher Blake Carlton

    Gotta watch out for the gingers

  • K-Bob

    Okay, I read the article. I want a job making 500K for “outreach, planning, and analysis.” Sounds pretty much like being the party coordinator for a golf league.

    We need a law that punishes people for using taxpayer money in political contributions, including 501c-3’s and all the other flavors.

    I don’t mean white collar resort prison, either.

    I suggest 15-to-life in Federal, PMITA prison.

    I’ve had my fill of government bureaucrats spitting on the tax payers who pay their exorbitant salaries. What is the “appropriate action” that was supposedly taken against her for breaking the NREL rules? She shows little respect for anyone. She should be fired and spanked for Tweeting duing business hours.

  • jsn2

    I believe you nailed it.

  • jsn2

    Sir Winston Churchill would take exception to that statement.

  • Garym

    Whew! This type of woman is the reason gay men exist!

  • Bob Belvedere

    Thank you.

  • Wombat_socho

    I think firing would suffice. Besides, these days the odds are good that she’d consider spanking a benefit as opposed to a punishment.

    Churchie had a few stray lines of code his ownself.

    You been trolling porn sites lately?

    “If there’s anything I hate it’s a good-looking woman with bizarre mental processes”
    Well, they all have bizarre mental processes from time to time. Generally, you’re looking for the best-looking woman you can get with the least amount of crazy.
    Unfortunately, I already married her, so you’re out of luck.

  • richard mcenroe

    I think I’ve seen that smile somewhere before…

  • SDN

    Yeah, but he at least had class….

  • JeffS

    Hell, I fart in meetings while sitting on prisoner made GSA chairs. I need to ask for a promotion.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Indeed. The Great Men are always a bit ‘off’ – seems to go with the territory. I know this because I am most definitely ‘eccentric’.

  • Bob Belvedere

    You don’t have to take that risk – just watch regular TV.

  • Wombat_socho

    There’s this horrendously popular new novel, Fifty Shades of Grey; you may have heard of it? One hardly needs to check out porn sites after reading reviews of that book.
