Glenn Greenwald Is a Ridiculous Joke (And Alas, the Internet Never Forgets)

“DomMascHry31”? Really? I always figured @ggreenwald as more the "SmoothLooseBottom" type … #tcot — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) June 27, 2013 Ali Akbar called and I had to tell him about the infamous — indeed, epic — nay, world-historic — exposure of Glenn Greenwald’s sockpuppetry back in 2006.

Kooky Tuesday Continues: Is Social Media Breeding Monsters? Oh, Hell, Yes!

Having begun the day with a post about deranged cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt, followed up with a post about a maniac professor at Columbia University, and then added a discussion of the (allegedly) felonious kook Barrett Brown, let’s stick with the theme, eh? In a post at’s new group-blog thingie, Mandy Nagy asks “Is Social […]

AR-15 Saleswoman of the Year?

Patterico nominates Sen. Dianne Feinstein for an NRA Lifetime Achievement Award: Perhaps no single American in the country’s history has done more to put high-powered rifles and high capacity magazines in the hands of United States citizens. The irony — it burns!
