BREAKING: Scandal At The Corner Uncovered (Must Credit S,N!)




Posted at 14:35 by Tintin

As if a column at Clown Hall by K-Lo entitled “Big Bedfellows” isn’t enough to make you want to drill a hole in your skull and erase the image by pouring directly onto your brain a mixture of Drano, Clorox and Everclear, the identical column appears at America’s Shittiest Website™ with Jonah “The Whale” Goldberg as its putative author. The links above might not continue to work, so I post the incontrovertible evidence completely free of any Photoshop tampering on my part:

klo_big_bedfellows

jonah_big_bedfellows

Now, of course, there are many innocent explanations for this. Perhaps Jonah Goldberg is the drag-king identity of K-Lo. Perhaps K-Lo has been writing Jonah’s columns for him in exchange for sexual favors and posted this one accidentally under her own account at Clown Hall. Perhaps the reverse is true, with Jonah writing the columns and K-Lo putting out. Or perhaps everything written by either is written by some underpaid intern while K-Lo and Jonah whoop it up together at The Olive Garden, and this is all some sort of intern revenge. Whatever the case, there’s some hanky-panky behind it all.

Developing. . . .

UPDATE: It’s 10:25 a.m. (almost two hours after I uncovered and reported on this scandal) and the same column is still posted under both names. Apparently K-Lo and Jonah are arguing over whose column goes and whose remains. K-Lo is making veiled threats about getting Lucianne involved in this.

UPDATE 2: Some more evidence, which speaks for itself:

jo-lo

UPDATE 3:
Jonah, er, weighs in:

My column today is related to the point Newt was making on Hannity (and is tied to my cover story in the current issue as well). Note: The Townhall version of my column was mistakenly given Kathryn’s byline. .


Gavin adds:
 

The Townhall version of my column was mistakenly given Kathryn’s byline. But it’s mine, all mine.


K-Lo, however, is keeping suspiciously quiet, refusing to confirm or deny that the Townhall byline was mistaken. Jonah unwisely reveals his pique against K-Lo with the rather strange “it’s mine, all mine.” I don’t think that Bedfellowgate has played out completely yet. Stay tuned.
 

UPDATE 4: Here.

    Come on, like we all didn’t know that this stuff is probably outsourced to monkeys on typewriters or written by Python scripts. It’s a purely accidental duplication the same content under different circumstances – they’ll be all like “But you believe in EVOLUTION which is just as improbable! Haha, I win forevar!”

    I postulate that they just posted the same fax-blast.

    But the real question is, who writes the fax-blasts?

    To determine this, I suggest we use the idea of projection. I think the originator — “Source Zero” — is a partially aborted illegal immigrant child of a biracial couple who has naughty gay impulses and is currently also employed at the Department of Education. Did I get enough in there?

    This is ironclad, indisputable proof that the entire rightwing media is actually funded and written by George Soros, who is doing it to dupe lefties into his grip.

  13. The Dow (Also) said,

    March 27, 2009 at 15:31

    What I find most distubring is that one would have to spend a considerable amount of time observing the writings of K-Lo and Loadpants to discover this duplicity.

    That can’t be good for one’s health.

  14. actor212 said,

    March 27, 2009 at 15:37

    Or perhaps this was mistakenly posted from the pied-a-terre that K-Lo keeps over the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, the dirty little secret being that she logged in on her laptop first, posted it under her own byline, then went to take a shower.

    Meanwhile, Jonah raised his eyelid…hey, look, when you’re that massive, it takes effort!…and realized he was on deadline and was regretting the evening’s festivities, found Mother Inferior’s laptop, and peeked in her cache.

    Well, he’d already seen her in her underwear, so this is not as big a surprise as you might think.

    Then, realizing that her piece was precisely the length he needed (if only he’d been the same to her!), and to boot, K-Lo is slightly more comprehensible than Jonah, who failed composition in fifth grade, he then posted it, figuring no one would ever spot the duplication.

    Underestimating the power of “Sadly, No!”

  15. actor212 said,

    March 27, 2009 at 15:38

    Ah, the brilliance of the wingnutosphere, fooling us into thinking that The Whale and K-Lo were seperate entities when they were actually one ginormous hack hole of stupidity.

    That was an insult to black holes everywhere, so I fixed your post.

  19. OTB said,

    I like the montypython talking point script bot idea, though. It sure makes sense, over the past 8 years of hearing, “the liberals are no more! They have ceased to be!” over and over again.

  22. TruthOfAngels said,

    March 27, 2009 at 16:02

    Incontrovertible proof that there is, in fact, only one wingnut.

    Or alternatively, that there are none at all! Neither K-Lo nor D-Pantload actually exist. William F. Buckley was an out-of-work actor who needed the money. The whole of movement conservatism is in fact a put-up job by the DNC to filch hard cash from hard-working librulz to keep themselves in hookers, blow and sweet sweet cream pies.

    Actually the world makes more sense when you look at it like that.

    Oh come on! The stories are not identical. K-Lo’s has a picture of barack HUSSEIN obama. She also gives you a chance to vote on it.

    Want your wingnuttery with serifs? K-Lo’s your gal.

    And now they’re both staring across the internet at each other, wondering who will back down first and delete their column.

But when it actually happens, good lord is it sweet. How are they going to explain this? A mistake?: “Whoops, I thought I wrote that column.”? This is an awesome takedown, even though they just handed to you.

    I am sure the LA Times, which proudly publishes Jonah’s weekly rants on how terrible life is for wealthy white men, would be interested in hearing about this from all of us. You can reach them at readers.rep@latimes.com.

  51. The Tragically Flip said,

    March 27, 2009 at 17:18

    Seriously they both should be fired for this. K-Lo also gets published in the Wall Street Journal and Washington Times.

    I’m struggling to imagine an acceptable excuse for this. I bet it will be something like this: An intern was tasked to publish K-Lo’s column at NRO, but mistakenly was logged in as Goldberg and published it under his name instead of hers.

  52. tigrismus said,

    I’m pretty sure Jo-Lo do(es) their own writing: text from India would be better.

  53. cowalker said,

    March 27, 2009 at 17:30

    Based on exhaustive and scientific analysis (browsing through a few of their columns) I deduce that the true author is DoughyPantload.

    1) It contains no glowing references to “Mittens” Romney

    2) There is no blame assigned to feminism

    3) Barney Frank is dragged in for a gratuitous kick.

    This is truly a thing of beauty. A terrible, awful beauty, to be sure, but beauty nonetheless.

    Of course, it won’t matter to their dain brammaged audience. The 28% who worship at the wingnut altars (ick!) will accept any pathetic explanation offered. I am guessing an intern will take the blame.

    Obviously this column is so good that no single human being could have written it. The two of them wrote it together by slamming their heads together at high speed and having an intern write down the utterances that poured forth from them. The intern simply failed to include both their names when submitting the writing, no doubt blinded into error by the sheer brilliance of what he had heard.

I must point out that it can’t be plagiarism or copyright violation or anything of that matter, since by definition those sorts of things aren’t done by the Pure In Heart. Now, can we have some more photos of Marie Jon’? Don’t bother with her writing, though. Too bad she doesn’t belong to a belief system that holds that women should be seen and not heard – she’d be an ideal concubine.

    How much longer will this delicious angel-fail cake stand up before the Lollercaust? Who will be the first to blink? How fast can I set up a betting-pool on this Clash Of The Tit(an)s?

    I think we all know the most important lesson we’ve learned here today:

    TEH BUTTOCKS.

    Ignore this wisdom at your peril.

    I e-mailed Doughy, and he replied with this short, yet somehow ominous reply:

    “I wrote it.”

    Kathryn Lo, I’d keep an eye over your shoulder today. Make sure everybody knows where you are at all times, and prepare your own food.

    So wait… Doughy is admitting that K-Lo is his sock puppet? This just gets betterers and betterers.

    I mean if this was plagairism, you’d think he might hint a bit in that ultra-brief email that he was, well, upset or something.

    What Batocchio just said.

    Only The Load could emit a column about “Obama and the economic crisis” by (after claiming brotherhood with “Newt” “on Hannity”) ignoring the causes and, therefore, the possible solution to the economic crisis; calling the Prescription Drug Benefit for Medicare a good thing *for patients* as opp. to Big Pharma; reciting his universally-discredited revisionist history of the New Deal; and closing, triumphantly, with a call for less government regulation of the kinds of institutions, the lack-of-regulation of which have caused the current nightmare.

    “Trifecta” doesn’t begin to describe it.

    That story has been squeezed from the essence of several wingnut sources. Gingrich sort of wrote it with his mouth on the Hannity show. But he was referencing DoughyPantload’s book, Liberal Fascism when he was talking. And then it was channeled to the readers of Town Hall through K-Lo. So it is the unholy outcome of the most incestuous and disturbing hook-ups imaginable. One thing we can be sure of, there was plenty of oil to cook with.

    Teh Tomb-Spawn!

    The thing was like some blasphemous dream of a mad devil…
    The urn-shaped torso was endowed with two heads. One of these heads was beaked like a cuttlefish and was lined with long oblique slits where the eyes should have been. The other head, in close juxtaposition on the narrow shoulders, was that of an aged man dark and regal and terrible, whose burning eyes were like balas-rubies and whose grizzled beard had grown to the length of jungle moss on the loathsomely porous trunk. This trunk, on the side below the human head, displayed a faint outline as of ribs; and some of the members ended in human hands and feet, or possessed anthropomorphic jointings.

    Through heads, limbs and body there ran recurrently the mysterious noise of regurgitation that had drawn Milab and Marabac to enter the vault. At each repetition of the sound a slimy dew exuded from the monstrous pores and rilled sluggishly down in endless drops.

    Okay, so my syndicated column went up at Townhall today. As I mentioned earlier, they messed up and put it under Kathryn’s byline. Her actual column is up over there as well. It’s annoying, but such glitches happen. But apparently some leftwing blogs think this is the most hilarious revelation imaginable. I’m being pelted with really stupid and juvenile email from people who think this is some sort of major scandal, that it’s proof of plagiarism and lord knows what else. I mean, is this the best leftwing blogs have? Misprinted bylines? I knew having Bush gone would be rough for that crowd. But this is really sad.

    The fact is tat you ignore the reality of this column. The Obama plan is a plan that will destroy America’s way of life. It will lead to mass poverty and socialism. The Obama plan is a man built on socialism. Obama is a socialist and he is a Marxist. Obama knows nothing about economics but he was brought up by communist marxists. The Obama Presidency has been an epic disaster for America so far. Obama is clueless and arrogant. Obama is too busy being a celebrity to be a leader.

    What Thin Gruel [Jonah Goldberg]

    Seems like thick meaty stew when the day comes to an end & said “mistake” remains standing. Or is admitting one’s own errors a mortal sin in KJL’s twisted atavistic version of morality?

    The reek of fishiness only gets funkier with every hour the “mistake” remains … no editor with a shred of ethical sense (or 5 neurons to rub together) says “stet” with such a catastrophic smeg-up staring her in the face – an immediate retraction, an apology, & looking for a new line of work would be the decent course of action if she had any real intellectual integrity.

    As someone who once fancied himself a poet I can tell you – if anyone so much as reprinted my work without my permission (let alone under their name), I’d want their head divorced from their gullet tout de suite.

    Methinks the fuzzy-faced man-bitch doth protest not nearly enough.

    Seeing as how both of these two work for NRO, and both are contributors at Townhall, what’s the whole point of this post rather than serving as an autonomous circle-jerk? Depending on how NRO and Townhall work, Goldberg’s explanation for the mishap is entirely feasible and logical, an even more simple explanation than the snarky ones you came up with. Occam’s razor, now 50% off at Wal-Mart.
