He Used to Be Somebody

Posted on | November 8, 2011 | 28 Comments


It was a little less than two years ago that he “parted ways.” Can anyone remember the last time he wrote anything important? While I was writing this, Ali Akbar called to talk about his success with Ali is now vastly more influential than Mr. Ponytail Bikeshorts, which is kind of ironic.

Or maybe miraculous. Like I said: Pray real hard.

Addendum: “Mommy says everytime somebody hits my tip jar for $10, an angel gets his wings.” Are you calling Mommy a liar?

P.S.: I never called Cain’s accusers “rent seekers,” of course.

    Charles Johnson? Never heard of him.

    No, really.

    When I saw the headline my brain immediately  flashed to these lyrics from Nine Inch Nails:

    So what what does it matter now.
    I was swimming in the hate now I crawl on the ground.
    And everything I never liked about you is kind of seeping into me.
    I try to laugh about it now but isn’t it funny how everything works
    I guess the jokes on me.

    I used to be so big and strong.
    I used to know my right from wrong.
    I used to never be afraid.
    I used to be somebody.
    I used to have something inside.
    Now just this hole it’s open wide.
    Used to want it all.
    I used to be somebody.

    So today’s white supremacists defend the black man, while the integrationists …

    Repeat a lie long enough and frequently enough and eventually people will believe it.  I tried to destroy RSM.    I will do the same with Herman Cain.

    According to the left, Glenn Beck is a Jew-loving anti-semite, and Stacy McCain is a White Supremacist who’s supporting a black guy for President.

    This must be like new math or something…

    Wow. Years ago I used to follow LGF but I didn’t know that Charles had developed a mental disorder. Oh well I guess that disorders like Bi-Polar happen to the “pest” of us.

    Cognitive dissonance.  It’s what’s for LGF.

    On Planet Ponytail (orbiting the star IUZ2B5UM1), “legion” of course means “one”.

    I though it was derived from Le John meaning “temporary business partner to female entrepreneur” in France.

    Stacy, I have called the Cain allegers “rent seekers”, at least the ones who haven’t produced actionable facts, which is all of them, as far as I know.
    Regret confusion.

    Charles your fleas may be legion, as for the rest ….

    What’s palpable is Chucky aching for some relevancy. For a chance to put a flipping .gif up and win international acclaim.

    Problem is Chuckles; Rather was guilty.

    Go pedal down to the beach. Leave a note on the seat saying you’ve gone for a final swim. Then head west until the sharks get ya.

    You know, that’s how the media (and you!) got Obama elected. It’s also how the majority of totalitarian states rose. Coincidence?! Heh.

    Take the blue pill. Go back to sleep.

    I wonder what really happened to him? It must have been something. Or maybe it was nothing. Maybe his whole persona prior to his “change” was nothing but a schtick, a way to take advantage of the anti-Jihadist atmosphere. Once he milked it for what it was worth he just let out what he really was all along.

    He went ballistic on Young Earth Creationists.  Its a tell, like with Jews.  If a country starts persecuting Jews, that country is onits way to very bad places.  A sorta conservative shifts from toleration of Creationists to outright hatred, and he’s about to out himself as a nutbar liberal.
