Atrios is Bugging My Apartment

This is bad. I wasn't going to say anything, but it keeps happening. This morning I posted a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial about Rick Santorum with no commentary, just a link and a quote.

Now a loyal commenter tells me that Atrios posted the same editorial FIVE DAYS ago - ALSO with no commentary, and with THE SAME PULL QUOTE. How the hell does Atrios know so far in advance exactly what's going to be posted on my blog? I've long stated that Eschaton is a little too good, just a little TOO on the money--do you know what I mean? And now we know why. NSA = Now Spying on Americans = Nefarious Snooping Atrios.

I will simply have to confront him at YearlyKos. This is no way to treat a fellow A-Lister.

That does it!!!

I'm also pledging my unborn sons as whores in perpetuity to finance your fight against the commies who steal your material!

P.S. That was me in the previous comments, accidentally posting as "anonymous," who got banned for my free speech.

That's great news about your attending YearlyKos. I take it that your invitation wasn't stolen from your mailbox...yet again. It's awful how that happened every single year. I know you were always the first invited.

you seem to be 4 days behind the curve on most topics. Check your reservations. I'd hate to see you show up to YearlyKos a week late.

You can't really understand the time - space - blog posting continuum from inside the United States. I'm in Europe and you're not. That's why I've got posting privileges on this blog and you don't ... loser.

Re-posting an item from 5 days ago-looks like somebody has earned a donation drive! Just tell me how much to give!

God, I love this blog! Does anyone know if Arabvosis looks here?


I have seen that message at least 20 times. When will the arab grow up and realize that he cannot ban his way to happiness?

I just finished mowing a few strips of grass and all I could think of was Johnny, the NSA, the Orcas, the unfairness, all of it, tumbling over and over again in my mind and I had to rush back inside and taking a pointer from the Bush administration and their spending policies, I hereby pledge my unborn grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc., as whores in perpetuity to support the noble cause that is Johnny's Blog. It's the least I can do. I'll fight back the tears, but I must get back to my grass mowing.

I can't believe you're cutting the grass while Johnny A-list and I are trying to save the country. Kind of puts it into perspective doesn't it? Now give 'til it hurts.

OK. Vangina Tangelino convinced me to send you my next paycheck. You are a god John! I'll send more as I earn it!

Oh, it hurts, Chris in Paris! It hurts a lot! I can only manage a few strips of mowing at a time. No, it's not the heat. My neighbors are all coming over to see why I'm boo-hoo'ing and when I tell them of Johnny's plight, it's all they can do to rush home and place their homes and cars on the market to support Johnny's good work, too. One of my neighbors is already a whore and she's offered to forego some of her Crystal Light and exotic German bon bons and she's gonna give Johnny a cut. So see, I'm helping! I'm really, really helping!

The fundraising for your compound in Guyana must begin immediately. Cyanide and Kool-Aid are expensive.

Actually, I think this time it's KOS who is bugging your apartment. He has been sort of out of it lately with his book tour and such, but is now back at it. He posted this old news this morning because he thought it was a significant happening from last week. Seems Johnny must have had the same idea at the same time, because he posted as current news without attributing that he had just gone fishing for a story at KOS. Johnny would never do something like not attribute where he got his stories, so it must be KOS or a KOS/Atrios conspiracy.

Johnnie Flip Flop

Aravosis just wrote this regarding the war: The point is that war has consequences, and our actions have consequences. Everyone who continues to support this war continues to support the growing cost of this war - $300 billion (not counting the trillions needed in the long term for benefits, etc.), over 2,000 dead, and scores of civilian killings (intentional and unintentional). This war has a real cost, and far too many Americans don't seem to realize that this, accidents and all, are what they continue to sanction."

But Aravosis supported the war before he opposed it. He flip-flopped on this position. He was one of the Americans who "sanctioned" this war! I remember him calling those opposed to the war "a bunch of hippies".

Aravosis is simple. If it is popular, Johnnie likes it. If it is unpopular, Johnnie hates it.

Let's face it, Aravosis is just a Rethuglican in liberal drag. His greatest desire is to be admired and adored. When he was a gay Republican, he was only slightly tolerated by the Republicans. That was simply not good enough for our Johnny. He decided to switch teams, while keeping many of his right wing core values (the love of money, the hatred of women, and the appreciation of all things superficial). He knew that if he switched teams, liberals wouldn't hate him for being a big Neiman Marcus loving homosexual male. He would be embraced, and possibly loved and admired.

Yet lurking underneath his need for approval rests his reptilian Republican dirty underbelly. The underbelly he rolls over to show when the likes of "nice" Kathryn Harris show up to give little Johnny doggie a bone of approval.

Sorry for the OT rant, I spew more bile on my D plus list blog.

Please don't ban me!

Everyday Activist-

How dare you criticise our glorious leader. You're lucky you haven't been banned yet. You must be some right-wing TROLL who came over here to try and get us to question our faith and devotion to the cause that is Aravosis.

Keep writing posts like that and some of our heads might just explode.

Johnny- That extra $100 is on the way now. Sorry you had to witness such obscenity as comes from Everyday Activist. You are the ultimate activist and we all just adore you!

Thank you Activist for saying what I've been too chicken all these long months to say. I think I figured out John's ruse (not Johnny A-List) a good, long while back but didn't want to be the first to tell anyone else. He's flip-flopped more than once on important issues and I can't quite put my finger on when he did it first, but I'm sure it was pre-'04 elections.

"All things superficial" like race, sex, and sexual orientation? Ahem... Those are "liberal" values, sir!

I have bad news for you: I, too scooped you on this issue. But, also like Duncan, I have bugged your home and your car.

And that shirt you wore yesterday? It really doesn't match your eyes. Oh, yeah, did I mention that I'm also having you followed by a P.I.?
