Stupid Is as Stupid Does

  It’s possible for me to go many months at a time without remembering that Charles Johnson still exists. Diary of Daedalus called attention to Charles claiming he’d gotten a thousand hateful mentions after his endorsement of Alyssa Milano’s idiotic #SexStrike idea, but good luck finding evidence of these allegedly myriad mentions. Also, his claim […]

The Crazy Is Always There

(Image via Thomas Anderson at Vimeo) Deranged cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt was in court today in Carroll County, Maryland, facing charges of violating the peace order that prohibited him from contacting John Hoge.

Transformation Complete, Charles Johnson Denounces Ronald Reagan

So stunningly rapid was his descent into obscurity that every post about the Lizard King’s latest self-humiliation must be prefaced with a reminder that he actually used to be somebody — cited by Rush Limbaugh! a co-founder of PJ Media! — until that day in October 2007 when he decided that Pamela Geller’s attendance at […]

No, it was […]

As You Can Perhaps Imagine, This Has Been a Rough Week for Charles Johnson

The World’s Least Credible Blogger™ has been tying himself into laughable knots of hilarious self-contradiction lately, attempting to defend President Wiretap Benghazi Failure against . . . Well, facts.
