Brief Encounter (Cue Rach 2)




Posted at 13:52 by Tintin

ABOVE: Anne Leary, aka The Backward
Conservative


Bill Ayers is a dick, of course, but that doesn’t diminish from the humor of his brief encounter with a dumpy wingnut blogger from Wilmette, Illinois, at a Starbucks stand in DC’s National Airport. The tale is recounted by Anne “The Backyard Conservative” Leary, the blogger herself, and it becomes, in her retelling, a triumph of, well, Mitty-esque proportions.

It all starts innocently enough:

There I was, sitting in Reagan National Monday morning, sipping a Starbucks by the United counter before going through security.

I’m not quite sure how you sip a Starbucks but I suppose it’s somewhat easier than eating an Outback Steakhouse.

I had a little time, so I was browsing through the news. … That’s when I saw Bill Ayers, an instant blight. … I gathered my things, got my camera ready, and snapped a shot right when he got his coffee.

I asked–what are you doing in D.C. Mr. Ayers?

Sadly, he didn’t say “I’m here to get gay-married to Barack Obama,” but appears instead to have hoped that a look of disdain might chase this annoying little pest away.

For a moment I thought he might be on my flight back to Chicago. Charming.

Apparently she’s worried that Ayers cooties will seep throughout the aircraft and that she’ll have to take a Silkwood shower when she gets back to her backyard to get them all off.

I asked him if he was speaking at GW? (Only I said GFW, guess I had the VFW on my mind) He said oh you mean GW, he said no.

I have no clue where Ms. Backyard learned her mad punctuation skillz or concocted the notion that Ayers was speaking at GFW. This was a reference to George Washington University, one of at least five colleges in DC, and not even the most well-known. Apparently GW is the only DC university that Ms. Backyard has ever heard of.

[Y]ou shouldn’t believe everything you hear about me, [Ayers said,] you know nothing about me. I said, I know plenty–I’m from Chicago, a conservative blogger, and I’ll post this.

At this point, after Ms. Backyard revealed that she was, gasp, a conservative blogger and therefore possessed of kerning skills, unparalleled insights, and teh mad superpowerz, Ayers burst into tears, got down on his knees and pleaded with her not to post anything, just to leave him in peace and be on her way. In fact he was so shaken by the mere presence of a “conservative blogger” that he admitted that he was Obama’s ghost writer:

Then, unprompted he said–I wrote Dreams From My Father.

And, if you don’t believe that Ayers said that, well, Ms. Backyard has posted a picture of her boarding pass, which settles the question beyond all doubt. Seriously.

Of course, it never even occurs to Ms. Backyard that she was being played. Even Bob “My BBQ Greeyuhl Got All Smayeshed Up By The Hurrycane” Owens figured this out, which leaves Ms. Backyard in the unenviable position of being one of the three individuals (well, maybe four if you include Clown Hall’s Carol Platt Liebau) in the group of people on the planet dumber than the Confederate Yankee.

  • Lifetime cost of a putting up a blog on Blogger: $0.
  • Cost of a ticket to National Airport: $200.
  • “I said, I know plenty–I’m from Chicago, a conservative blogger, and I’ll post this.” Priceless.

Bonus fun with a particularly dull knife in the wingnutosphere drawer: Someone blogging as Serr8ed examines the EXIF data on Ms. Backyard’s photo to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Ayers claimed authorship of the Obama book.

    I once went to Cape Canaveral, and while I was their Neil Armstrong admitted they faked the moon landing. But where, you ask, is the evidence?

    A receipt to a gas station in Cape Canaveral.

    Oh, and also. These people know what the fuck Bill Ayers looks like on sight? What the fuck. That guy looks like a countless hundred old slightly balding guys in their 50s to 60s.

    How is it that I, as a dirty filthy leftist liberal, couldn’t pick this guy out of a line up of a retirement home in Florida, but this woman picks him out in the middle of a D.C. station to accost him?

    ‘Cause you have a life? I imagine every wingnut worth his or her Cheetos has the images people like Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill and Cindy Sheehan burned into their tiny brains so anytime they see, say, Michelle Obama not being…something…they can jump all over it.

    Man, that’s what they live for. That’s all they live for. How it goes when you’re full of fear and loathing.

    That being said, were I a guy who twisted the drawers of right-wing loons like this woman, that’s about all I’d do. Were I Bill Ayers, I’d a told her that I was not only the author of Obama’s book, I was his father. And Michelle’s. And Hillary Clinton’s. And David Letterman’s. And that I convinced Levy Johnston to do that Vanity Fair article. Whatever I could think of.

    If I was Bill Ayers, I would have claimed to have written that book too, just to mess with her. Just to see her chins fall and her cake tunnel hang open, damp, and dark. Then I’d escape the coffee breath.

    That’s why I’m not cut out for positions of authority.

    I’ll tell you why the Chewbacca defense doesn’t make any sense. It’s because Chewbacca clearly lives on Kashyyk, not Endor. So the entire discussion is not just silly, but wrong.

    I once stood next to Ringo Starr in baggage claim at 3 a.m. at O’Hare airport. I demanded to know what he was doing in Chicago. He told me it was really his idea to break up the Beatles. Then we ran away together, leaving Barbara Bach and my spouse behind. The End. None of this is true except for the standing next to Ringo in the airport, and I didn’t even recognize him, sad to say.

    By the way, has anyone else commented yet on the total fail of that Toilet Paper ad over there? >>>>>>>>

    A joke, perhaps? Anyway, laughably fail.

    OMFG! Michael G is Bill Ayers!

    Then, unprompted he said–I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said, oh, so you admit it. He said–Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He’s about my height, short. He went on to say–and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties.

    Look out Sadlies, the bomb threat is being called in from inside the thread!

  21. DragosaniBOB said,

    October 7, 2009 at 15:02

    Heh. I believe he did say he wrote Dreams of my Father. The problem is, conservative bloggers, particularly ones who claim to come from the Backyard, have no sense of subtle sarcasm. I think he should have went on to say that Obama helped him build bombs in his basement right after a secret Islamic ritual where they burned an American flag, smoked a sticky ball of hashish and then had sweaty gay sex. That would have been a touch more recognizable as sarcasm.

    But, honestly though, look at that doughy face up there. Could anyone gathered here today have resisted the temptation to drop some scary-ass sounding bullshit on her, especially after she says:

    I know plenty–I’m from Chicago, a conservative blogger, and I’ll post this.

    I put to you all that you could not resist.

    Actually, St. Trotsky and Citizen X, she wrote the following:
    “Just so readers know, I have been tracking Ayers for some time.”
    Followed by a whole list of previous articles she’s written about him. Adding to the creepiness is the fact that she started the conversation by taking a picture of him.
    Also, I just had an idea: what if this was just some random guy, who felt like messing around with Leary?

    The photograph ought to be enough.

    However.

    If that picture plus the inconceivable idiocy of the post aren’t concrete proof of consanguinity I’ll fuck every single blood relative I have just to try to produce offspring as bigoted, stupid, ugly and inhuman.

    The results will take awhile, but the methods are clearly described.

    So bigoted. So stupid. So ugly. So inhuman.

    I pray my consanguinous offspring will be of higher quality should l be forced to produce them.

    Meh, I can abide calling an overpriced, weak-ass coffee drink “a Starbucks”, that’s just a basic metonymy. But, yeah, not figuring out that a guy who spent most of his life punking reactionary douchebags as hobby just might playing you for a chump when he blurts out a confession to one of your favorite conspiracy theories? That’s Stupid-Lovers stupid with an extra layer of stupid baked into the crust.

  29. Jack Fear said,

    October 7, 2009 at 15:19

    Then, unprompted he said–I wrote Dreams From My Father.

    Once again, context is vital. I can only imagine that while she was spluttering out her “I’m from Chicago, I know plenty” shtick, she missed the part where Ayers said, “You’re probably one of those idiots who think that…”

    Oh, for sure. This will go one of two ways. Either the the thinking, rational press and pundits of the world will see this as an obvious case of Mr Ayers having a laugh at a potato’s expense, or the hooting, hollering masses will whip themselves up into a frothing, pants-shitting, poo-flinging frenzy.

    You don’t have to be a psychic to figure out which one will come true.

    The stalking obsessions of potatoes & birfers & ranting screamers would be amusing if not so, um, revolting & ultimately boring.

    Shorter Big Trunk Johnson:

    Barack Obama wrote a book; here’s a lengthy quote to pad my word count. Jack Cashill’s analysis of Obama’s book vs. Ayers’s book is so lame that it could’ve led to the conclusion that I wrote Obama’s book. Then again, Ayers and Obama did once live near each other. Also, Ayers was probably joking when he told this lady he wrote Dreams From My Father, but I’ve never heard Ayers tell a joke before. Ergo, Ayers is just a liar; here’s a pretentious and inapt reference to the Cretans. Oh, and Dreams is better than Obama’s speeches but it is immature. Bill Ayers is immature. Therefore, Bill Ayers probably at least helped write it.

    Everything I’ve ever read about Ayers, and the one time I heard him speak, has made it absolutely clear to me that he is a vainglorious, dishonest jerk.
    .
    On the other hand, telling a deranged wingnut blogger “I wrote “Dreams of My Father” is such a sweet coup that I may start thinking he has a redeeming quality or two.

    I’m not quite sure what the underlying point of the “Ayers wrote ‘Dreams of My Father’” is – are the wingnuts claiming Obama’s incapable of writing? If all they want to do is draw an association between the two men, wouldn’t a lie with a little more political corruption do the job so much better? As far as I know, Ayers doesn’t ghostwrite for a living, he’s got enough work on his plate, so why would he do so in this case? Why are they saying it’s just “Dreams” instead of both books?

    How come the right believes he said he wrote “Dreams” but they don’t believe anything else the guy says?

    “I’m not quite sure what the underlying point of the “Ayers wrote ‘Dreams of My Father’” is – are the wingnuts claiming Obama’s incapable of writing? If all they want to do is draw an association between the two men, wouldn’t a lie with a little more political corruption do the job so much better? As far as I know, Ayers doesn’t ghostwrite for a living, he’s got enough work on his plate, so why would he do so in this case? Why are they saying it’s just “Dreams” instead of both books?”

    Cashill thinks Dreams was authored by Ayers, and that an Obama speechwriter and/or Axlerod associate wrote Audacity. He doesn’t think that both books were written by the same author.

    The lead post was personally insulting to the woman. I wonder if Dick Cheney made an airport comment about Halliburton or if Karl Rove made a Plame joke if a liberal blogger would have reported it.

    I have read Cashill’s work and I think he makes a compelling case. He was backed up by Anderson’s book. Try taking on the actual facts.

Bill Ayres was standing next to Anne Leary in an airport. Which of course proved that he wrote Obama’s book and killed a bunch of people in the 70′s and negotiated with Albania for America’s surrender and drew pee-pees and wee-wees in “The Seven Chinese Brothers” and probably, probably voted for Michael Dukakis in 1988.

    g,

    Good point about facts. Cashill makes some interesting points and draws conclusions, but those are not facts.

    Anderson claims to have two sources though. Is Anderson credible? Were his sources credible? If you double source something is it a fact?

    It does appear that the book is not reliable when it comes to facts either. Barack didn’t work at a Wall Street consulting group where he was the only black man (“a spy behind enemy lines”). He was at a publishing house that sent out some sort of industry newletter.

    And in 1981, he went to visit his mother and sister in Indonesia and Pakistan. This wasn’t mentioned in the book. Instead in the book, his mother and sister came to visit him. What does it say when a guy can’t get his own life story straight?

    Cashill also has laid out the advances that he was paid and the trouble that he had in finishing the book. He didn’t fulfill his first contract, and it appears he was having trouble with the second. Anderson’s book backs that up.

    Maybe Anderson is lying. I do find it to be an interesting case. What amazes me is how little we actually know about the President of the United States.

He went on to say–and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties. So I said, stop pulling my leg. Horrible thought. But he came again–I really wrote it, the wording was similar. I said I believe you probably heavily edited it. He said–I wrote it. I said–why would I believe you, you’re a liar.

    He had no answer to that. Just looked at me. Then he turned and walked off, and said again his bit about my proving it and splitting the proceeds.

    What you wrote:

    Of course, it never even occurs to Ms. Backyard that she was being played. Even Bob “My BBQ Greeyuhl Got All Smayeshed Up By The Hurrycane” Owens figured this out, which leaves Ms. Backyard in the unenviable position of being one of the three individuals (well, maybe four if you include Clown Hall’s Carol Platt Liebau) in the group of people on the planet dumber than the Confederate Yankee.

    REQUEST FOR MUTUALLY BENEFITTING ENDEAVOUR

    Dear Anne Leary,

    I humbly crave your indulgence in sending you this mail, if the contents does not meet with your personal and business ethics, I appologise in advance.

    I am Dragon-King Wangchuck, the TRUEauthor of Dreams From My Father. When I originally wrote the biography for Barauch Hussein Stalin Obama Soetero X, he was merely a law student who happened to have a good connection for primo weed. With the advent of the new totalitarian autocratic state of the Obamanation in the country under the leadership of the Kenyan USURPER, I have come under severe threat of eradication (see OBAMA DEATH LIST, &c.) due to the sensitive position I had in authoring his seminal biography.

    The main purpose of this letter is to intimate you of a business proposal that might be of interest to you. Royalties from Dreams From My Father are in excess of several millions of your US dollars, every year. Additionally with the Obama PROPAGANDA SQUADS spreading brainwashing throughout the country, sales can only increase, indicating towards future royalties of even greater riches. Unfortunately, just as Baraque Hussein Osama Lenin Soetero X usurped the Oval Office, he has also stolen my due rewards.

    Here is the proposal, I do have in my possession certain audio-tapes that I used in my interviews with the future usurping president that incontrovertibly prove my authorship of Dreams From My Father, as well as statements he made whilst in the grip of the DEMON WEED that indicate his true nature (hint: rhymes with Will Khitey!).

    Unfortunately I now longer have the audio-tapes at hand, as they were absconded with by a former intimate acquaintance after an acrimonious domestic dispute. I have been informed that all of the possessions I had that were taken from me during the split will be returned once I make up my share of the back rent owing. Sadly, this amount of money is beyond my current ability. What is needed for the execution of this endeavour is immediate amounts of liquidity, preferably in small unmarked bills. The current amount is ten thousand dollars, but is increasing as time goes on.

    I have attempted to contact you since you are a famously well-known and highly regarded conservative blogger and have both great interest in revealing the fraudulent nature of the current occupant of the highest ofice in the land. Additionally, it is clear that your obvious levels of success indicate great business acumen. I propose that upon recipt of the outstanding back-rent and recovery of the audio-tapes, I shall immediately file suit to recover my stolen royalties which I will share with you 50-50. Additionally, I will mae available to you any copies of the audio-tapes that you desire, for the purpose of spreading the truth about Barkadia Hussein Jong Il Soetero X. Should this proposition be of interest to you, you can reach me through my e-mail address thus; dkwangchuck@gmail.com so that we can go through the rudiments of this enterprise.

    I remain most obliged.

    Dragon-King Wangchuck

    You know, i recently ran into Glenn Beck at the local Wal-Mart. Unprompted, he blurted out “I raped and murdered a teenage girl in 1990.”
    Later that day, i chanced to meet Rush Limbaugh at a Mapco gas station. He came up to me and admitted “I’m actually a liberal performance artist… most of what i make is funneled directly to George Soros and the People’s Army of Eritrea.”
    My mind was blown.
    Just now, i saw Dick Cheney in the laundry room. Unprompted, he admitted “The Iraqi invasion was undertaken purely so we could get the UFO that was buried under Saddam’s Palace. Now we have their advanced technology. What do you think is keeping me alive?”

    And a police officer was killed in a nail shrapnel bomb attack in San Francisco in 1970; there’s evidence that Ayers and Dohrn were involved.

    Once I was flying to Peru and Mario Vargas Llosa was on the plane, and he winked at me. Clearly Mario was transmitting to me his plans to sacrifice virgins in the high Andes at the dawning of 2012 to fulfill the ancient Mayan prophesies. Die, virgins, die!!11!!

    Neh. Not so much, there C.S. Read the whole post. She does cover her ass a little bit by saying the “pulling my leg” comment (with the exquisitely priggish “Horrible thought” aside). The rest of the post leans very far over to give Ayers admission credence as part of a large mish-mosh of floop about the blackity-black, black black Obama and evil, etc. In the context of the whole Backward Conservative post, the shorter was dead on.

    I did, however, violate the Prime Directive, ATTS, and now must pay the horrible cost of such a mistake.

    A doctor in medicine also has a doctorate, but again it’s a first professional degree, and the implications of “doctorate” don’t apply in quite the same way (although medical doctors do a shitload of work).

    Duverger’s Law pretty much rules that possibility out for anything more than a very brief moment in time.

    Allow me to reiterate: Canuckistan has First Pissing on the Post, with all the bullshit that comes with it. There are four parties with representation in national parliament.

    Regional rumps can do fucking shitloads in systems like this. Our Bloc has a hugely disproportionate amount of power when compared to their actual popular support. A Jesusland Party would be practically guaranteed four or five states and maybe five other seats scattered around the country. Even as a regional rump, fifteen senatorial votes ain’t nothing to scoff at.

    Consider a 60/40 split of the remaining 85 senate seats (yes I know that the 10 Jesusland seats are all formerly R’s – this is a PENIS experiment). That’s a 51-34-15 split – meaning Joe Lieberman decides who controls the Senate. That’s fucked up shit.

    Date: Wednesday, 7 October 2009 08:58:18 -0700 (EDT)
    From: William Ayers [wayers@acornrulestheworld.fak]
    To: Right Wing Blogosphere
    Subject: CONFIDENTIAL PROPOSAL

    My name is Mr. William Ayers. I am Minister of the Pimp and Ho Housing Advisory Department of Acorn for Lagos, Nigeria. I write you in respect of one of my clients, one Barry Soetro of Mombasa Kenya, otherwise known as Barack Hussein Obama.

    Without knowledge to the general public, his autobiographical work, Dreams of my Father, was in fact ghostwritten by myself and a committee consisting of the leaders of Al Qaeda, the Communist Internationale, and the Bilderbirgers in the hopes diminishing the vitality of the American public.

    Obviously this would be a matter of great embarrassment to the great and glorious Obama should it ever become public, and, to that effect Mr Soetro has agreed to deposit a sum of money to the First International Bank of Nigeria equaling 1 Million U.S. dollars a day since the birth of Jesus Christ to fund our campaign to take away the guns of the American people to weaken them for their eventual takeover by the United Nations. Unfortunately, in order to keep the requisite degree of separation between myself, my compatriots and the holy and wise Obama whose coming was foretold in the Koran, the Satanic Bible, and the Communist Manifesto, we are unable to retrieve these funds ourselves.

    Based on the reason that nobody can come forward to claim the deposit, I hereby ask for your co operation in using your name to send these funds out to a foreign offshore bank a/c for mutual sharing between myself and you. At this point I am the only one with the information because I have removed the account information from the files of my co-conspirators.

    What is required is to send an application laying claim of the account in your name. I will need your full name and address telephone/fax number, company or residential, also your bank name and account where the money will be transferred into.

    When you contact me, then we shall discuss on how the money will be split between us and the others we shall also speak in details. I am currently in Iran visiting with Mahmood Ahmadinejad for a six months course on Holocaust denial, you can reach me at this number for further
    discussion 5555 555 555 5555. Kindly send your reply to my private email address wayers@acornrulestheworld.fak.

    Trusting to hear from you,

    God Damn America,

    Mr William Ayers.

Obama signed an autograph for my grandson with a nice inspirational message. He headed for his flight, wished me safe travels, and admitted to no nefarious plan to take over the country and enslave all us white folk.
