Troglopundit Is Not Only an Acromegalic Sideshow Freak, But Is Also Wrong

Posted on | February 2, 2012 | 15 Comments

My friend Lance Burri was once famous as the second ugliest conservative blogger in Wisconsin. That was before Sean Hackbarth and his ludicrous hipster soul-patch moved to Washington, D.C., however, and the Towering Man-Mountain of Cheeseland has since ascended to the pinnacle. But I digress . . .

Troglopundit has wasted several thousand pixels in defending the folly known as The Rick Perry “Only Conservative Who Can Beat Mitt” Bandwagon and, because his wrongness is so transcendently self-evident, I thought I’d link it, denouncing the Trog as a worthless varmint.

Just because he is my friend.

If Lance were my enemy, I’d praise him, and then he would be added to the Official Tabitha Hale List of Unimportant Bloggers™ on which list my own name is permanently foremost.

    You’ve praised me in posts in the past – what does that mean?!?

    Shhh! Tabitha might notice. Hurry up and post some Helen Thomas bikini pictures or something like that, just to give me an excuse to denounce you.

    There are some lines a man of honor will just not cross, sir!

    Just published pictures of Christina Hendricks fully clothed, will that do?

    I only counted two imitations of my writing devices.  One borrowed by me from long tradition (but always employed as expertly as Eric Clapton borrowed from Robert Johnson), the other practically a trademark.   I gracefully accept the implied compliment.

    @rsmccain I am actively concerned that you may be headed down the Charles Johnson highway, or something.

     I assume peeing on your grave will have  to have to be a stipulation before any friend will agree to eulogizing.   I am sure you have plenty of time to turn that around, though.

    Stacy, I am truly hurt, I took you to task for your Perrybot nonsense, I linked, yet no credit? And I am a lot better looking than that Trog guy

    Some pretty low standards you got there, Doug.

    as Eric Clapton borrowed from Robert Johnson

    You mean “stole” – like everyone else.  There is scarcely a riff in the whole of blues or rock guitar which isn’t at least anticipated by the few recordings Johnson left behind.

    RSM secretly hates you. Trying to get you to post something that unspeakable is just plain wrong on a Stalinist scale.
