It's been a busy couple of days at the monkey gas station. Amanda Marcotte got shitcanned from the Edwards campaign, causing many a tut-tut in high places; frankly, that a woman losing her job for making intemperate and inflammatory remarks on a blog could be engineered by Michelle Malkin makes you wonder if Dean Martin used to go around getting people fired for drinking on the job. As further proof that metal is the only thing you can trust, Blue Oyster Cult's Donald Roeser has outed himself as a devoted fan of Butt Propulsion Laboratories. I know how you feel, Don: I get all my news from Varg Vikernes. And while his corner boys were waiting for a re-up, Jonah Goldberg gave them a high-minded lecture on civility in blogging. Offering in his own defense the fact that he hardly ever does the "French-bashing stuff" that he cribbed from The Simpsons anymore, Jonah notes, "I ignore most of the lefty bloggers" because of their "tasteless" and ungentlemanly behavior, and just to prove that he's nonpartisan in his distaste for overblown rhetoric, he says he doesn't like "say, Michael Savage (assuming he's still alive)". How can you accuse him of ideological blindness in light of this revelation that he not only doesn't read the majority of left-wing blogs, but also one right-wing blog that may not exist anymore? Three cheers for you, Jonah!
As usual, though, the best stuff comes from Clown Hall. It's only their Scaife money that can pay for the top-shelf journalism that keeps us informed every day about what a bunch of marginal right-wing shitbags are thinking. Where else can we learn that the Anntichrist thinks Joseph Wilson is a latter-day Joseph Goebbels? Only by guessing. We'd also miss out on the stunning news that if we listen to the propagandists of MSNBC, we'd think Joseph McCarthy was a bad man, humans are causing global warming, and the war in Iraq is going badly. FORGET YOU, MSNBC! Elsewhere, Mike S. Adams starts a column with "Complaining about the leftist domination on college campuses isn’t a worthwhile activity", but, unfortunately, does not end it there, introducing his exciting new program of creating 'Morals Week' on college campuses. I guess 'Jackass Week' is already a trademark of David Horowitz's outfit. Finally, the new kid on the block is a bull-necked ex-convict named John Hawkins, who delivers the stunning revelation that an adjunct professor at a community college once said something controversial about the Iraq War and that, therefore, liberals are traitorous cowards who want all of our Marines to die. You know, money really isn't enough to thank the brave heroes of Town Hall for whatever it is that they're doing.
