LGF's candidate on the way out

Hey, learn to consistently spell President Giuliani correctly, you're going to be using it a lot in the future. - lizard operative 'anonymous' in our comments section earlier this month

So, Chuckie, what went wrong? All that shilling for Rudy doesn't seem to have carried much weight in Florida. How about excreting providing some more of your insightful political analysis a little closer to home and telling us who's to blame for this debacle?

Dang, MandyNoManners really went completely batsh*t insane on the thread. See #707 and onwards.
How must the reaction from the lizard world be if *gasp* a Democrat won the election?

And political analysis from Charles? Anyone willing to bet it'll be around 16 words, two links and a hat tip long? Suppose all he's going to unload his rhetoric on is Ron Paul's 3%

I haven't been over there in quite awhile, but I think I felt something. A disturbance in the blogosphere? As if an entire race of netizens cried out, all at once.

Here's my eulogy: Goodbye Rudy, Tuesday

I'm sure Killgore Trout is inconsolable right now. I'd keep your distance.

And let's not forget Freddie Thompson, whose campaign came to an ignominious end last week despite winning a crucial endorsement from Pajamas Media.

Now I'm off to stock up on popcorn. This conservative crack-up is going to be fun to watch. :)

But I thought that the right retard-o-sphere *really* represented the grass-roots of conservatism, and reflected what *real* Americans *really* think, feel, and want.

I thought that the right moron-o-sphere had its finger on the pulse. Oh right, the Dan Rather thing. Never mind.

The Sphinx said...

Ok, I was pretty close. Charlie's analysis consisted of 17 words, one link and no hat tip. Maybe next time my prediction will be better

Tex Taylor said...

No heads popping here - though I did think Rudy G. would win as late as last week. I actually thought he would win Florida. Could explain my cold play on the stock market as well in 2008.

Let's get the show on the road. This nomination process is a waste of good TV. I'll pick which ever Republican is chosen (short of Ron Paul), you guys pick your noses while you vote for HillBilly or the Afro-centrist racist.

We got eight months of crap to sling. As it is, I know whomever chosen, they're going to screw me every which way when it comes to poking holes in my wallet.

...and you've started early.

That's something we agree on then.

PS I'm not impressed by any candidate, Dem or Republican. It's a poor field of candidates.

And The sphinx what he will pick in his country? oh, his nose. because Hosny is a winner with or without election. Oh Sphinx voting Saudi Arabia? oops, no election. too bad the Sphinx, seems you are too busy picking on the west, while your country receive billions of dollars from the west and piled under crapo-islamists.

oh and please, don't hit back on the west. because I'm an Arab, I know your country very well. go eat foool wa ta'amiya. you guys in Egypt haven't seen chicken and meat only after the west started to send you billions of dollars for your service in the gulf war. look at your dramas and TV before 1990s just in case you forgot.

Hey Anon, next time you want to pick on Sphinx, at least show the cajones to leave a real name, doofus. Jeez, I hate hit-&-run morons.

Back to the topic at hand, Funniest. Post. Title. Evah. OMG. "Pull It Out For Romney". I'm not kidding. At Atlas Shrugs until she realizes how that sounds, afterwards on my screen captcha.

Legalize said...

Tex is a parody poster right?

The Sphinx said...

Anonymous, I really don't get what your point is. Criticism of Western governments' policies does NOT mean complete approval of my own.
Sheesh, whoever came up with the idea of being 100% with "us" or 100% with "them" with no alternatives deserves a lobotomy.

So anonymous, to put it clear to you in your own language:

Ib2a e3rafny el awwil abl mate3milly feeha zaky we tirammy 3alayya kalam.

Dealer,

I'm afraid even as one of those evil conservative types, I am forced to agree with you. For the sixth Presidential election in a row, I'll be voting for the lessor of two evils.

Moderator frame this...it could be both a first and last.

Hey Anon, next time you want to pick on Sphinx, at least show the cajones to leave a real name, doofus. Jeez, I hate hit-&-run morons.

A second miracle. I have agreed with Lexie on "THE WATCH." Stars must be aligned right. I too hate the anonymous posts slinging garbage. What courage does it take to pick an ID? My Lord, you can post under a different name everytime. I hardly find that a personal threat.

Well, of a sort. And I have one thing in common with LGF Watch - I don't care for C.J. Off hand, I can't think of anything else besides I got a big mouth like the majority of you.

Lex said...

Well Tex, it's true. Anyone could make up whatever crappy BS name they want to post here. I've never understood the Anon comments. That's actually the only moderation I have on my own site, no Anons. Even if they posted, I'd still be able to see who they are with Site Meter.

Tex, you just decided to dislike me as "Lex", which happens to be my name. I find it hilarious, personally. Anyone here could tell you that I used to post under a different name and many conservatives rather liked that old web persona, even if I was never really a conservative myself. I know, I know, hard to believe, and nothing I'm even remotely proud of. But true it is.

The other thing I find hilarious is that you called me a "rube"...ROFL!

Tex Taylor, "the anonymous" said...

Sorry Lex, I actually didn't use the "Lexie" as an insult...just kind of leaning toward the feminine side, so I took a stab.

Your story at Atlas Shrugs made me snicker. Reminds me of a personal story I'll share with "The Watch".

Some years ago, I was standing with a friend who happens to stand 6'8" inches tall. We were returning from lunch. A short, young gal got on the elevator with some of her chums and turned to my friend and said, "Say Mister, how tall are you?" My friend announced 5'20".

She turned to her buddies, pointed at my pal and said, "Man, I sure wish I had six inches of that."

Me, being the punk I am, held my breath for as long as humanly possible. The elevator went silent for what seemed like an eternity. Before I could exit the door, my friend and I started giggling, which led to females giggling, which led to an elevator laughing like wild banshees. The poor woman never looked us in the eye again at work.

Okay, I'll retract the rube part. Confused maybe, but obviously not naive. And something to do with "Ghost?"

The Sphinx said...

Gee Tex, that was actually quite funny.
Seems these are really good days. Is it possible that we're all starting to get along??

*mysterious horror-film music*

here's something interesting that deserves your attention.

Not only is Chuckie's candidate out, but there's something curious about LGF's anti-candidate.

http://www.antiwar.com/blog/2008/02/01/republicans-in-the-military-support-the-antiwar-candidate/

Ron Paul has more money from service members than any other candidate. In fact, he has about 4 times as much as John McCain, the highest earning pro-war candidate. Isn't it curious that there's all this talk about "Paulians" at LGF and how they're crazy people? Isn't it interesting that many "Paulians" are military members?

We all know Johnson doesn't really give a crap about the troops and he never did.

Alexis said...

Little Green Footballs is the kind of website that is a dream-come-true for any Democrat. All the Democrats need to do is show the lizard insanity and point out that the Republican National Committee actually endorses Charles Johnson’s electronic monster. Charles Johnson alienates liberals; he alienates conservatives; he alienates anybody he disagrees with for any reason. Becoming an object of lizard vilification should be seen as a badge of honor.

Charles Johnson is a perpetual embarrassment to any politician who allies with him; his endorsement is pure poison to everything he touches. His blog has become a metaphor for unpleasantness, yet the RNC still endorses him. Why?

Lex said...

Oh dear, my "story at Atlas Shrugs"? Let's hope it wasn't actually there. Eh, I was making a different point, but I've grown apathetic....LOL

The Sphinx said...

This is priceless.

Poor little sheep squad!
