Leftist Weirdos Sling Mud and Miss, Badly

If this is the best the left can do, we’re going to have no problem getting Sam Brownback to the White House. Some weirdo going by the pseudonym “plover” came up with this rather weak hit piece: Brownback May Be Pro-Spider, also Pregnant. It seems that the head propagandist, Pinko Punko, who I’ve crossed swords with on occasion, was too scared to pen the piece himself.

They begin innocently enough, pointing out the good work Senator Brownback has done in helping to eradicate malaria-causing mosquitos in Africa, and then segue to what they apparently consider the big question: Is Senator Brownback Pro-Spider?

Asked whether the Senator favored the pro-spider agenda, a Brownback staffer replied, “What are you talking about?” Given Brownback’s prior efforts on behalf of pro-spider principles, it seems necessary to get to the bottom of this. When solicited for comment, a spider outside my window said, “…”

It goes on for awhile with several words separated by punctuation and linebreaks and other such things, when finally, from out of nowhere, the big handful of mud is thrown:

In other news, it is going to have been reported next April that Senator Brownback seems to be pregnant. In a quite literal display of embryophilia, Senator Brownback’s own body appears to be going to demonstrate his devotion to embryos by actually producing one.

Notice the sly use of the uncommon future perfect tense. It hasn’t happened yet, but it will have happened at some theoretical point in the future. Nice rhetorical trap. I can’t disprove a negative can I? And I’m not even going near a future negative.

This attempted attack is similar to the slimy tactics used by Democrat party favorite LBJ who accused an opponent of getting too friendly with farm animals. Although he couldn’t prove it, he really wanted to fool his opponent into denying it. Nice attempt at trapping us in a spider web of your own, plover, but I will already have addressed and dismissed it before you would have thought to have alleged it.

I suspect this is an elaborate gag by a spoof blog simply looking for attention, but they’d probably have taunted me and hurled insults unless and until I responded. So go read the whole thing (blah, blah, blah) and they won’t feel so ignored and cranky. Now, with the 3 Bulls weirdos sated, we can move along to more serious topics.

In all seriousness, it was a pretty funny post. I give them several points for creativity and one point for irony, points which I must take away since they are a bunch of leftist chunderloaves who are objectively pro-sink lettuce. See? Brownback supporters do have a sense of humor. And I have it on good authority that Sam Brownback himself is a very funny person who would probably have enjoyed this.

Belated Update: The rebuttal is in and it burns: B4B makes their position clear as mud while impugning the “Culture of Life”.

  1. I have to say that my estimation of Senator Brownback just went up immeasurably. I think Brownback could have my vote if you were to contact the Senator and get an on-the-record response from a staffer about his spider stance. I know the Senator does not wish to discuss every and all issues with anyone, but if he is to represent America, he needs to be responsive to even the wackos, don’t you think? Let’s nip this spider thing in the bud. I’d like to hear the statement of the Senator’s Office. I’m not sure I 100% trust the bird.

  2. Oh man, these people couldn´t even recognise irony, sarcasm or parody if it would bite thme into the nose….

  3. This explains my inability to smell.

  4. No, I have it on good authority that when the weather gets hot, you begin to smell.

  6. Besides, the 3B website, is, by their very own estimation, a bastion of half-assedness; therefore it is NOT the best the Left can do, but only a half-assed version of a humor, parody, or lettuce blog, I can’t figure out which.

    And I assure you, PG, they would never consent to bite (th)you on the nose, regardless of your personal proclivities, unless maybe you asked really nicely. They’re liber-trains that way, different strokes, etc.

    But if you continue to respond, which is, of course what Pinko wants, he will eventually demand full support for mecha-emus, investigation into the Sink Lettuce Tragedy, and SCIENCE! And pork. And Rolos.

  7. Hmmm, harvesting leftist IP addresses for the FBI and Homeland Security is actually pretty easy!

  8. PSycheout, my IP adress doesn´t wouldn´t even meet interest with the FBI or Homeland Security. I´m outside their jurisdiction anyway and two other points are standing:

    1. My PC has some nifty protection measures.
    2. I don´t store important data on it, anyway.

    Soo, I´m not too afraid of any US government agencies at all.

  9. It’s gotten so that every other word out of a Liberals mouth sounds like “zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz” to me.

  10. Well, don’t talk to bumblebess liberals, moron.

    Hey Psycheout, how come the Daily Brownbacker doesn’t have you guys on the blogroll. I think they are chumps for that. I wonder if this is a little official vs. grassroots elitism. I can understand why were not on their blogroll though- that is official vs. half-assedroots elitism.

  11. That is a fine question, Pinko, and an interesting one. But you’re not going to bait me and pit me against The Daily Brownbacker and Billy Valentine, who is probably the greatest Brownback booster in the world.

    They may or may not choose to link with us. That is up to the Brownback campaign. They will get out the message in their way and we will get it out in ours.

    Sorry, I forgot the question. But thanks for your support and interest in bridging the divide. I think something along the lines of “Democrats for Brownback” would be a wonderful way to work in a bipartisan way.

    I’m just brainstorming here, so you don’t necessarily have to accept my first idea.

  12. It is intriguing. One thing that sounds a little bit controversial is electrons being angels. I’m not 100% against the idea, but if I am going to disavow my party in favor of Brownback’s moral wisdom, I would like to know that the Senator is willing to go on record with such a stance. I would like to at more than a “no comment” from the Senator’s staff on this issue. Has the Senator issued a statement to you guys about this?

  13. Pinko, you’re very good at asking questions that cut right to the heart of things. And hopefully I can be as good as you at dodging them. LOL. j/k.

    Sam Brownback is currently working very hard in Iowa and New Hampshire to get the GOP nomination, which he rightfully deserves. Let’s face it: America deserves his nomination.

    He doesn’t have time to answer every question we have of him or to link all of his campaign websites to us. None of that is all that important. And if he doesn’t get the nomination, none of these things will matter.

    He’s busy, trying to save America from itself. So give the guy a break. Give him the benefit of the doubt and either support him or don’t.

    Now, a question for you: if you’re not 100% against the idea, what percentage are you against it? And what do you think of “Democrats for Brownback” or even “Three Bulls for Brownback?”

    It’s got a nice ring to it. Think about it.

  14. Oh, and per your article, would a “What are you talking about?” or “…” suffice?

  15. Electrons hell, Pinko. There’s no objective proof such things exist. Have you seen one? I mean, with your own eyes, unaided by electronic trickery? I thought not.

    I think if Brownback could come to Milwaukee and drink the water without getting sick from cryptosporidium, while drinking several liters of German beer and eating 43 pork sausages without passing out even once; I would suggest that 3B begin supporting Brownback as Reepublican candidate at 13.5%

    In any case, I cannot support Brownback personally until he takes Thompson three falls out of five in no holds barred Mad Monkey Kung Fu kickboxing. Tommy Thompson, not that grumpy actor fella.

  16. Psyche, why do you waste yore time with hippys and weirdos like these. Its almost like your Jesus-like in your payshense. And I think Sam could take both Thom boys in a no holds barred smackdown. He’s got God behind him after all. So bring it on fairys.

  18. Psycheout- I have to say that I practically dared you to create a header for Three Bulls with the content of YOUR CHOICE and enter it in our header contest. ALL ENTRIES were posted on our blog and placed in the rotation above our blog. Let’s say I received your entry late, but somehow there was no way for me to determine whether it had been submitted on time. I would simply have to post it on my blog, wouldn’t I? Ball is in your court, friend.

  19. That’s a hard offer to refuse, Pinko. Especially if it benefits Sam Brownback and the B4B Team. But I don’t have the graphic design skills that your current team seems to possess. I could perhaps do something in crayon and mail it to you. Hmmm. I’ll consider the challenge. Let me sleep on it. Thanks.
