Blogs 4 Brownback

July 9, 2007

Last Word on the Denver Post Smear

Filed under: Idiocy,Muckraking — Psycheout @ 3:39 pm

The infuriating Denver comPost editorial, Online Spoofs Cloud Political Stances, has already been addressed a couple of times. The shameless fact-free hit piece contains weasel words galore:

And if you peruse some of the blogs supposedly authored by his supporters, such as baptistsforbrownback (baptistsforbrown2008.wordpress.com), you’ll see that he believes in lots of other things too.

If Crummy bothered to read our About page she’d have discovered that this is Blogs 4 Brownback, not Blogs of Brownback. We have our own opinions and we share them with our readers. And “supposedly?” Give me a break. There’s nothing I want more than for Sam Brownback to get the GOP nomination. That’s why I do political research and post blog entries here, Karen E. Dummy.

It appears these so-called supporters – who also run the site Blogs 4 Brownback (blogs4brownback.wordpress.com)….

“So-called?” I guess the author is clairvoyant and just knows that Blogs 4 Brownback and Baptists for Brownback are run by the same “so-called supporters.” She’s dead wrong.  And thanks for the links, Karen.  HTML is not that hard.  Learn to use it.

The sites look official….

Because they are, pinhead.

…bloggers with names such as Mrs. T.D. Gaines-Crockett and Sisyphus provide just enough accuracy, and religious scripture, to appear oddly legitimate – even to other conservatives who comment on the musings.

“Just enough?”  “Oddly legitimate?”  See above, pinhead. This slanderous opinion piece goes on and on, sliming us without any objective facts, just baseless assertions. A professional slime job. But why? What is the motivation for singling out two blogs that support Senator Brownback?  Why didn’t you shine a spotlight on some of the other “spoof” blogs, if it’s such a widespread problem that deserves valuable page space in your leftist rag?  Unfortunately, unlike the article’s author, I am not gifted with the ability to read minds. But I doubt it was a mistake.

Let me try to wrap my head around your premise: two blogs in support of Brownback somehow prove some conspiracy of spoof blogs clouding political stances. Uh huh.  Yep.  Got it.  It boggles the mind how our blogs prove anything other than that people support Sam Brownback.

Perhaps the motivation is that the old MSM empire is losing influence. I have seen a number of MSM articles criticizing the blogosphere. Old media does not like nor appreciate the existence of citizen journalists and online advocates. The more people read the real free press on the internet, the less they waste their time on the liberal propagenda (ie, propaganda with an agenda) machine.

Fortunately a commenter nailed a point I have already made. It’s worth stressing:

Wait, so let me get this straight. You wrote this entire speculative article, and never even contacted the two websites in question? You don’t know who runs them? You don’t actually know if they’re run by the same people? You don’t know whether or not they’re actually serious? Why did The Denver Post print this at all–or did they? Is this just yet another one of those “online spoofs” out there to “cloud political stances”? Or is research only for scientists these days?

Indeed. The crummy author, one Karen E. Crummy, contacted a couple of people who know nothing about this website and never bothered to attempt to contact us for comment. Is this responsible journalism? No it is not.

  1. “It boggles the mind how our blogs prove anything other than that people support Sam Brownback.”

    When you watch The Colbert Report, what do you think of that?

  2. It is hilarious to note that you have so much in common with those you slam, and sickening that you cannot and probably will never see it.

    Fact-free? Baseless assertions? Slime job? That sounds exactly like everything you comment about, like electrical appliances, NASA, “Darwinists”, an entire political stance, etc. etc.

    You are doing EXACTLY what you say you are completely against. You hear an opinion from somebody else and you take it as fact.

    Next time you comment on the Islamofascist (not a real word, by the way) liberals, remember how much you hate people smearing you. Remember the golden rule. You’re so incredibly moral, so I shoudln’t even have to mention the Golden Rule to somebody like you :-)

    If you do political research why do you still believe that Brownback has a shot? Are you blinded by the want that fuels you?

  9. No, the Brownback crowd is kicking back, waiting for that miracle they need to get Brownback the nomination, and if it doesn’t happen they can always blame the liberals, or Satan.

  10. No, La Mona, you’re using the liberal media helionazi definition of research. All REAL Americans know that research means you come to a conclusion, and then act like all the facts support it, even when they don’t.

  11. Mrs. Brownback told me in the strictest of confidence, so please don’t repeat this, “My area sinks.”

    [Ed Note: This is a family website. Your foul language and your viscious attack against a Presidential candidate's wife, Mary Brownback, a warm and wonderful human being, is not welcome here. You disgust me.]

    Obviously, as that means the GOP will lose.

  15. I’ve read a lot of stupid comments from far-left whackjobs, but this one takes the cake. The latest polls show RINO Giuliani beating Clinton. And I seem to remember a poll demonstrating that Brownback was within the margin of error in a matchup against the shrew. And that was months ago.

    Blogs4Moonbats, indeed.

  16. The point is: yes, that was months ago, if it ever occurred. Times change, like it or not.

  17. “The point is: yes, that was months ago, if it ever occurred. Times change, like it or not.”

    Indeed. A new poll would show Brownback trouncing Clinton by at least 15-20 points.

  19. I was listening to Fox News this morning and heard that Sam Brownback was way up in the polls. I guess that shoots the LIEberal MSM pools all to hell where they belong.

    Mark my words, Sam Brownback will be the next President of this United States of God and the leftiloons know it. He has them scared to death!

  20. “I was listening to Fox News this morning and heard that Sam Brownback was way up in the polls.”

    If he hit six percent, that would be ‘way up’ for him.

  21. Poll Results as of Tuesday 10th July 2007:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/youdecide2008/index.html

    Giuliani 26.7%
    Thompson 19.0%
    McCain 16.3%
    Romney 10.2%
    Gingrich 8%

  22. I don’t know and I really don’t care where you get your polls from. Polls can be and are distored by the Liberal media, that is a fact. We will see who is laughing when Sam Brownback is elected President won’t we.

  23. Well, it doesn’t really matter *where* I get the polls from, his numbers are rock-bottom in every poll. I did check http://www.brownback.com/s/Home/tabid/127/Default.aspx but no mention of poll numbers, funny that.

    Perhaps we should all email Sen. Sam, ask him personally, see what his response is? :-)

  24. HAHA! Oh Gaines-Crockett, you crack me up so! You tell yourself over and over that Brownback MUST be trouncing Hillary in the polls, and then when he clear is on the VAST LOSING END, you say “well the facts don’t actually matter, becaue he WILL be the next Prez of the US of God!” What a larf… You are so disconnected from reality, that you actually make up your own where opinion polls in a democratic election don’t matter! HAHA!

    Wow, Gaines-Crockett, I didn’t know you were on TV. You lost weight too!

  25. Oh, Mrs. T.D. Gaines-Crockett, you get funnier each and every day. Only a parody site would choose the *worst* candidate and run with him. Otherwise it wouldn’t be funny. What will you do when Rudy gets the GOP nomination, only to get beaten by Hillary in the general election? Celebrate perhaps? ;-)

    These are the thoughts of the people who call themselves the “reality-based” community. It would be funny, if it weren’t so sad.

  28. You know what, Tyler, I don’t care one iota what you or anyone else says about me, this site, my site or Sam Brownback. All I care about is seeing Christian Sam Brownback elected the next United States President. All your comments, false accusations, polls, persecutions, and attacks against me roll off my back like dog urine on a duck.

    >>and attacks against me

    >>roll off my back like dog urine on a duck
    Hmmm, this probably says more about you than we really neeed or wanted to know, but thanks for sharing with the group.

    >>All I care about is seeing Christian Sam Brownback elected the next United States President.
    Maybe in a “movie-of-the-week” on the Disney channel, probably not in the real world though.

    Keep up the good work, you’re always good for a laugh :-)

    Because it’s fun! I haven’t had this much fun a long time, and, trust me, my wife and I have fun. I’ll leave it at that.

    Nothing says “hopeless” quite as loudly as being five points behind Newt Gingrich. That’s a pretty good definition of being in disarray.

    I was really hoping the spoofiness of this site wouldn’t be noticed until after Brownback pulls out, but, eh, the cat’s 100% out of the bag now. It ain’t goin’ back in. Darnit.

    Rooting for Brownback to win is a lot like rooting for Dodge to bring back the Omni; don’t hold your breath (or allow your dog to pee on your duck).

    This blog pissed me off for about 20 minutes; I’ve been laughing ever since. Spoof blogs is now officially recognized as a great idea. You’re on the leading edge, kids!

  39. And, by the way, this could have been a blog for Dennis Kucinich, too. Just as hopeless; just as funny.

    In a Kucinich-Brownback matchup, who’d win?

    (My answer: Canada.)

    Amusing, considering he used FOX NEWS as source. Is Fox now being undermined by the spooky liberals, too? :)

    “He who laughs last, laughs best. He will be laughing long after you’re dead and gone.”

    Yeah, in a rubber-clad cell in the local asylum, I guess. It´ll be quite a shock once Brownback gets demolished in the elections.

    @MikeM: If you love spoofs, try Shelley the Republican.
    It´s always worth a laugh. I especially love the articles about Germany.
