He Shall Overcome

(Since Jeff Goldstein’s anti-fans have been clumsily psychoanalysed by Ace of Debased — an effort since punctured by Brad, Roy and TBOGG — consider this my reply in kind, and well worth the effort since Goldstein and his commenters have recently started outing anonymous liberals.)

Jeff Goldstein is a real piece of work, a posterchild for the inferiority complex and resultant over-compensation issues delineated in Adlerian psychology. As is so often the case, the inferiorities he feels are both real and, simply, perceived. There’s nothing wrong with being a Mr. Mom or failed academic, yet Goldstein’s behavior indicates he feels differently — he’s so very touchy about it. On the other hand, there is something wrong with being a chickenhawk coward, a paste-eating cretin, and a talentless hack. Hence his overcompensation in the form of obnoxious aggression (often to the point of violent threats), pseudo-intellectual windbaggery, atrociously banal “short-fictions”.

To the casual observer, Goldstein might seem to be a garden-variety internet wingnut, a suburban douchebag whose sad and petty hatreds, frustrations over stagnated ambitions and innate cowardice lead him to adopt a sort of Walter-Mitty-As-Rambo-As-Whackjob-Blogger schtick, whereby all his fantasies of action and genocidal crusade and manly-man aggression are sated through internet jackassery. Of course if Goldstein really wanted some adventure, he could go to the recruiting office, but — hahahahaha — everyone knows that ain’t gonna happen. And yeah, all of this is common enough on the WingNet, although Goldstein has a curiously ambitious drive to be the biggest jerk of them all, and he very nearly succeeds. Added to this drive and his deep, abiding fear that he might be a weenie is his status as “Literature Wingnut” and the unique salad of sex and violence issues which reside in his otherwise empty brainpan; Goldstein’s a hell of a case study.

His sex and violence issues I’ll deal with first; if by the end you’re not also convinced that Goldstein is certifably crazy and that, therefore, he ought to be straitjacketed and shot-up with elephant tranquilizers, then you should be drubbed to death with a giant dildo.

A Little Penis Fixation

GoldsteinChocula.jpgJeff Goldstein has without a doubt the biggest macho complex at least since George Thorogood’s. Which is why the “chickenhawk” epithet is so injurious to him. (Goldstein is so discombobulated by the Chickenhawk label that he, like Jonah Goldberg, has to rely on Christopher Hitchens’s argument against it; both are too stupid or dishonest to acknowledge that Hitchens was revising himself; and of course none of this prevents Goldstein from turning right around and applying a derivative of the term to Rod Dreher.) Like all the rest of the 82nd Chairborne Brigade, his affected stance is broadly swaggering, hypermasculine, chock-full of bravado and chest-thumping — all of which is not only self-serving, but also a distended reaction inspired by how Goldstein sees the Left: as a collection of wimps. The irony of course is that if Goldstein were really so tough and so confident of his pro-war righteousness as all his rhetoric insists, he’d be in Iraq. But then he, like all chickenhawks, regards such moral logic as unreasonable and impossible. Actually, the very idea of 101st Keyboarders putting, so to speak, their money where their mouth is, is liable to make them terrified to the point of incontinence. And though I’m fairly sure that Goldstein’s barcalounger has more than its share of urine stains, the Left’s perception that Goldstein isn’t heroic material inspires in him a great deal more than that. Goldstein the Chickenhawk is reduced to violently asserting that he too is a macho man!Reduced to soiling himself not in fear but in anger! To asserting that he is more manly than any lefty, to be sure, (despite what his adenoidal, wimpy voice sounds like, which he is always quick to say is the fault of technology, not lack of testosterone!) and it is with monomaniacal fixation on his genitals and those of others that he means to demonstrate his ultimate masculinity. Thus Goldstein-Chickenhawk becomes Goldstein-Cockvulture and his garden-variety wingnut resentment becomes a thematic demonstration of his unique insanity.

After calling a fellow wingnut (who allowed that John Murtha might be onto something) a “Chickenlittlehawk” and then being reminded that he is one of the biggest Chickenhawks around, Goldstein replied:

All those using the chickenhawk argument are on the wrong board. Here you go.And here’s the contributor’s page for Kevin.

I added him to my AIM buddy list: catcomguy.

I’m going to see if we can set up a meeting. He seems so tough in his picture—cigarette, beer, hat turned backwards, Malcolm X glasses.

Wonder if he’d like to feel my dick slapping him across his face.

WTF, huh? Well, here he explains his “authorial intent”:

It means what it means, you wannabe-tough baby pussy. Specifically, that if you want to call me a chickenhawk to my face, I’ve added you to my AIM (you haven’t reciprocated) so that I can get your personal info, or give you mine, and we can arrange a meet up.At which point, after I beat you like a bitch, I will hold you down and smack you across the face repeatedly with my cock.

Pretty simple.

Let’s get started on this.

And:

Pancakes? Bisquick and water.Now about spanking Kevin’s across his face with my cock…

To a Jewish emailer who asks him to quit giving his fellow Jews a bad name, the first thing Goldstein can think of in response is:

howsabout you just glue on a bit of the foreskin you snip off the next transient you blow, then try to blend.

He thinks John Cole’s lefty commenters are:

[a] band of dickless fucktards

Meanwhile, the Liberal Avenger is in Goldstein’s estimation:

a world class cock.

And TBOGG’s commenters are denounced as:

fucking turnip-headed dickslurpers who hang out at this pseudo-intellectual dump fellating each other over their own supposed “reality-based” genius to piss on the reputations of strangers while posting under such clever screen names. How fucking brave.But no worries. Rather than trying to engage, instead we get funny pictures of clowns and regurgitated memes from Poorman & Atrios (Jeff is stupid) and Glenn Greenwald (Jeff is a Bush cultist). But hey, whatever keeps your traffic flowing and the self-congratulatory jism pumping “Tbogg.”

On encountering a genuine anti-semite on a fellow wingnut’s blog (imagine!), which gave him license to reply in whatever fashion, Goldstein’s cock-fixation again showed itself to be dominant:

Wow, what a release of pent-up incoherence, Cedarford. So happy to have a forum for your anti-Jew material that you shot your load too soon, eh? Couldn’t even onjure up a nice Jew bash fantasy before cuming all over the comments section?

Wingnuts in 2004 said a lot of choice things about Dan Rather, but it’s doubtful many of them immediately saw fit to comment about his man-junk. But then Goldstein is unique:

I think I just heard one of Dan Rather’s testicles climb up into his abdomen.

But even within the context of his monomania, sometimes he frets about things closer to home, as it were. Of a dietary supplement, he asks:

…So. Nothing is going to, you know…shrivel, is it –?

The supplement’s giggles were not recorded.

Not that all his cock-fixation program activities are about threats and insults; some involve fantasies and even compliments. And lame attempts at humor, like his “interview” with Jeff Gannon’s “COCK” (a word that Goldstein, Master of Projection, always renders in all-caps, by which he means to underline the object of the Left’s supposed fixation). And naturally, wingnuts, already taking seriously their claim to general idiocy, hasten to prove their atrocious aesthetic judgement by lauding Goldstein’s efforts.

Even friends make Goldstein think of cock. Of his pal Patrick Bateman Vodkapundit, Goldstein blurbs:

Steve Green is to blogging what John Holmes was to enormous penises.

On finding Tucker Carlson’s replies to Jon Stewart (who had called Carlson a dick; yet unlike Goldstein, Stewart is not known to exhibit a pattern of cockomania; he meant the term as being synonymous with “jerk”) apparently too feeble, Goldstein, presumably since the very word was mentioned and therefore drawn like moth to flame (cockotropism?), couldn’t resist providing Carlson with ammo:

“It’s genetic, the big dick thing. My father was hung like a horse.�
[...]
“Any truth to the rumor you and Lewis Black like to toss each others’ salads?

So. Very. Funny. The penis, apparently, is the soul of wit — and fantasy! The penises of enemies are too fodder for Goldstein’s ordinarily shrivelled and tiny imagination which becomes, suddenly, vivid:

Atrios awakens—simultaneously aroused and a bit ashamed—to find his stumpy Duncan jr. still semi-tumescent, his sheets puddled and tacky from a longing that, alas, millions of slackjawed Rethuglican voters refuse to let come to pass…

And:

We’ll be treated to a post about my hypocrisy that misses the point, obfuscates the identity of the speakers, muddles the context, and is replete with trademark Roy “smarts� that are then dutitfully parrotted and cheered by his robotic reaadership who, like the proverbial emperor’s sycophantic minions, will pretend that he’s not marching around in his cyber bedroom with his little prick bobbing about like a poorly-functioning metronome.

And:

Which assessment, I might add, is quite different from the one he had of me back when he was still going by Andrew Northrup and not trying to pick traffic crumbs out of the pudendas of Atrios and Kos like some lowly genital crab.

And (with ample projection):

Riiiight. Like I’m going to answer that and let you finish getting yourself off.Sorry. You’re going to have to insert some other guy’s cockswallowing into your masturbatory fantasies.

And:

Tell me, Bart? Do you masturbate to mental images of yourself standing astride the world, being noble?Tell me, Bart, were you whacking off to thoughts of yourself fightin’ the good fight as you typed out that comment?—slapping your half-hard joint against your thigh to the mental strains of Country Joe and the Fish? Did you squirt all over that pic of Joe Wilson looking all Bond-like in Vanity Fair right as you wrote “little bitch�?

And not to forget his characterization of a certain feminist’s prom date:

I mean, what guy in his right mind would want to spend the wee hours of the morning having some bitter, long-suffering ideologue read Gertrude Stein to him while his rented-tux tucked erection (already dubious, given the company) is folding up tent and trying to make a run for his own asshole?

In other words: “take that, dyke!” But then for Macho Man Goldstein, since all that’s manly is good (Harvey Mansfield says so!) all that’s feminine must be bad. Goldstein’s first inclination is to impugn the masculinity of his perceived enemies; who better for him to trash than those who to him are nothing but wannabe-men? Thus his (typically unfunny) stance to the effect that outspoken women are intolerable freaks, who are bitter, shrill and seething of penis-envy. Yet even when sneering against feminists, Goldstein’s cockomania takes over, like for instance in this tedious attempt at an anti-feminist gotcha, where he was driven to distraction yet again by cock:

What bothers me most about this story—aside from all the penises in the room [...]

But then there’s something about lefty women that brings Goldstein’s bitterness to boil:

But hey, keep the love coming. Anonymous pricks like you only pretend to stand for things like true gender equality—until you have the opportunity to take your shots, at which point you just can’t help showing your true colors.
I mean, who can blame you for not be willing to put your name to this stuff? Once the feminists find out what a secret misogynistic poseur you are, they’ll stop giving you handjobs after the latest Title IX march.

Then, inevitably, the humiliation fantasies:

But that wasn’t really the point of my bringing up “Majikthise’s� post. Which was this: Lindsay “majikthise� Beyerstein: hot or not?
Me, I kind of like the ironic / blase sneer and the angst pirate affectation.
Or maybe she’s just sitting on cucumber.
Either way, the fact that she’s an analytical philosopher is just so damn
sexy. And even if she turns out to be a total bitch (which, how likely is that), I could just close my eyes and imagine myself getting a dirty sanchez from Wittgenstein.

Does all of this macho violent cockomania and misogyny seem a little bit “Theban Sacred Band” and a whole lot “John Derbyshire” to you? Was Gary Farber onto something when he wrote this little jest? I wonder…

Hmm:

I’m uncomfortable seeing gay men kiss. Which is odd, because I don’t think I’d have a problem should I happen to stumble upon them going at it like a couple of rutting bull elks.

Hmmm:

Who cares?—so long as I get to see gay cowboys going at it all tender and dignified and chapless.

These are nervous jokes, while this is a primer for homophobic hysteria laid much too thickly, and this — this is something else altogether, apparently about an ex-roommate:

5. Tony something or other, who lived with me on 5th Street in Ocean City, MD, in the late 1980s.Remember that time you were all coked up and were putting holes in the bedroom walls with your fists, Tony? Remember being buck naked with an erection while doing so? Remember my trying to stop you, and your wigging out and throwing punches at me? Remember me having to parry not only your wild roundhouse rights, but your angry, springy penis?

You’re lucky I didn’t kill you in your sleep, man.

And I have no idea what to make of this, but Christ is it sick.

But in other ways, too, Goldstein’s mask slips:

What, you think moronic, limp-wristed, defeatist, wanna-be intellectual ironist progressives are in short supply or something? The coffee shops are CRAWLING with them.

Busted on that “limp-wristed” remark, Goldstein dissembled:

Limpwristed means effete. Why you make the jump to guys playing Brokeback Mountain is your own hangup, “prick.�

Huh. Maybe so? Ahh, sadly, no! Here is one of Goldstein’s dread “funny” pieces in which he applies human characteristics to an armadillo. Its author “makes the jump”, too:

…turns out he’d been surprised the week before in the restroom of the Olney Dairy Queen by an employee while he was buried hip deep inside an effete Black-tailed Jackrabbit (Lepus californicus)—and down in Texas, that kind of Brokeback Mountain thing is frowned upon, especially where there’s species mixing going on.Ultimately, I guess he figured it was better to get drunk and throw himself under a pickup truck than, y’know…get snatched up by the local roughnecks and dragged behind one, chained to the bumper.

Poor little mixed up queer.

Now a note for those susceptible to Goldstein’s “authorial intent” bullshit. The playfulness and irony in this story, such that it is, lies in its anthropomorphism, and why it works to the extent that it does is precisely because it is also narrated in a “straight” (no pun) voice. Not to get ahead of myself here, but these little nuggets of talentless puerility serve the function of allowing Goldstein to have his bigotry and eat it too (note also the reference to being chained behind a truck and dragged to death in Texas — Goldstein is refering in a hahafunnyfunny way to the awful hate-murder of James Byrd).

Anyway, it is plain what he means by “limp-wristed” and “effete”; and we’ve all read of this sort of thing before, in a blessedly funnier context: “Why Do All These Homosexuals Keep Sucking My Cock?”

Enough was enough, and aware of some of this I hurriedly posted to Goldstein in my first and last comment to his blog:


“limp-wristedâ€?? “effete fucktardâ€? this after you threatened (three times, so delighted you were with your own puerility) to smack kevin with your cock.
your “im so much more butch than you, but can i see your penis first just to make sure?� schtick has just gotta stop.

look, goldstein, it’s real simple. you need to pull out of john derbyshire, and the both of you kick open the closet door already.

it’s all right. it really is. the only thing that makes it ugly is the self-loathing.

And as if compelled to prove my point, he replied immediately:

What’s the matter—can’t use the shift key with you [sic] cock in your fist?Fuck off. If I was interested in your opinion I’d visit your site. And if Kevin doesn’t want his ears boxed by my dick, he shouldn’t come to my site and call me a coward.

But I was wrong about his affliction. Mere sexual self-loathing can’t account for all the pathological things he’s written. He’s nasty and unstable to his core. Witness this bit of incoherent, raging insanity:

Today’s subject: tristero, who (let’s face it) has the intellect of a gibbon, though he clearly fancies himself a brilliant debunker of lockstep winguttery. In fact, his post (as seen on Digbysblog) —Loven stole HIS idea about the strawmans, we’re told / and Atrios was exactly right that I’m an idiot who doesn’t realize my own idiocy (a pronouncement, incidentally, that can only be made by one who assumes he is far more intelligent than the object of his scorn, which position essentially deconstructs the study in the Atrios post tristero fellates, or else proves it to his detriment, I’m not sure which)—is par for the course with these bandwidth sucking cocklords. You allow them to stay and say their piece, and they interpret that as a “right� that you now owe them, and they then take that as an invitation to start helping themselves to things in the fridge, or slipping a finger up your dog’s asshole, etc.Well, sorry, but that ain’t my thang. These fucktards want to take shots at me on their own sites, they can have at it. But from now on, they can keep it there, or they can bitch about me on sites I don’t give a shit about anyway.

What they can’t do is take pot shots at me on other sites, then slather some peanut butter on their joints and show up here hoping to help themselves to a quick hummer from my dog.

The degradation of one’s enemies via bestality references is common enough among wingnuts but in Goldstein’s rant it reaches its apotheosis:

Disgusting, I thought. Who would even imagine something like that?A few minutes later, I sat down to read the Los Angeles Times article on the Army dog handler who was just found guilty of using his unmuzzled dog to terrorize prisoners, and came across this:

:”Smith also was found guilty of an indecent act for using his dog to lick peanut butter off a male soldier’s genitals and a female soldier’s breasts while another soldier videotaped the act.”

Once again, the warriors live out the armchair warriors fantasies.

And that is exactly what Goldstein’s issues stem from: a seething, sociopathic hatred, the same that fueled Abu Ghraib abuses. Thus, his grotesque humiliation fantasies in which he threatens to sexually degrade people who’ve made fun of him, who’ve reminded him that he’s a chickenhawk, a hack, a paste-eating moron.

“Civility”, Hypocrisy & The Ragin’ Contagion

Despite all the evidence above, Goldstein often puts up the civility front. He affects the stance that he – so brave, so manly, so decent – and his side are the victims of the incivility of the Left. No, really. And some people are stupid enough to buy it. Pasty says:

Atrios doesn’t have “readers” so much as he does run a clubhouse for lefty cranks who fancy themselves intellectual attack dogs.

Which goes without saying, because:

Congrats on the Atrios hit!Man, I live for approval from one of the vilest leftists on the net!

Posted by: Jeff G at December 15, 2005 04:04 PM

How cruel they are to poor persecuted Pasty! And to others, too! Why, look what The Left did to Michelle Malkin (context here and here)! Why, it’s enough for Pasty to sign an Online Integrity pledge! (A pledge created by a hypocrite who is, not coincidentally, one of hypocrite Goldstein’s most hypocritical defenders.) Which, in turn, presumably enables him to clutch his pearls and address someone who’d called him a “failed academic” thusly:

These rhetorical tactics are tawdry and, frankly, beneath contempt. Northrup should stick to kitten jokes. Because when he opens his mouth in an attempt to be serious, he is inveterately incapable of disguising the bile that pours out.

Nevermind that five paragraphs above that remark, Goldstein called the same person a “genital crab”!

Naturally, many wingnuts find Goldstein’s cuckoo nest quite homey. As Pasty is crazy and violent, so too are his fellow travellers. You’ll not find a nastier bunch of commenter-regulars this side of LGF or Anti-Idiotarian Rotweiller — an association not lost on even Goldstein’s friends (though the qualitative judgement is all mine). PW commenters are a bunch of paranoid, resentful, demented and servile fascists.

When Dennis the Peasant merely observed that Pajamas Media was being unprofessional and self-destructive in allowing Goldstein, among others, “to pick as many fights with as many bloggers, commenters, and/or readers as is humanly possible,” one of Pasty’s goons was inspired to compare Dennis to serial-rapist Peter Braunstein. But then what do you expect them to do when Goldstein himself responds to criticism of its mediocrity by telling the critic that he molested his sister? (Any criticism, from Left or Right, of Pajamas Media is enough to send Goldstein off his rocker: see here andhere — which are tame compared to Goldstein’s responses I’ll quote in part two.)

Protein Wisdom commenters recommend that liberals be interned like the Nisei. Naturally, PW wingnuts find the WWII theme irresistible: here’s one who couldn’t resist comparing Peter Jennings, when the newscaster’s death was announced, to Lord Haw Haw and Tokyo Rose.

Here Goldstein publishes a snarky email — nothing vulgar, just a sneer. His commenters then put the emailer through the wringer, looking up her personal info and calling her stuff like “cunt”. But why wouldn’t they when Goldstein himself says of someone like Cindy Sheehan that “[she should be] cuff[ed].. to a space heater…”?

Here‘s what they think of Eugene McCarthy. Here’s what Goldstein says of and to other bloggers:

If you were anybody of importance, I’d rip you to shreds. But since nobody reads your shitty thoughts anyway, this will have to suffice.Jesus, are you ever a pussy.

[not to worry, though: by Macho Man Goldstein's bullshit calculus, the Founding Fathers were pussies, too.]

So naturally his commenters will follow suit, even against fellow wingnuts:

John Cole is a whore. He’s just sucking up to all the limousine liberals who visit his site to vent their anti-Bush rage and then click through to buy overprice Kona coffee from his scummy liberal BlogAd advertisers. George Bush knows what’s best, whether the wibwuls and their RINO bend-over buddies like John “Juan� Cole know it or not. Questioning the presidet’s policy can only help the terrorists. Don’t ask questions and nobody gets hurt.

Eventually, even this sort of thing isn’t enough for Goldstein and his goons. They escalate the rhetoric. First, Goldstein:

I never served in the armed forces. But I did once beat the piss out of a “gang� of 4 anti-war protesters with nothing more than a paper mache puppet head and one of their belt made of daisies.Kind of a Crouching Tiger, Frightened Anonymous Pussy Clan Who Really Didn’t Think I’d Go Through With That First Roundhouse Kick To The Windpipe moment. I wish I had filmed it in slow motion, ala Billy Jack.

Not sure if that means I’m now permitted to write on the failures of pacifism, but what the hell. Put on a puppet head and a daisy belt and come try to stop me, anonymous punk.

And:

Give me your home address, Jesse, and I’ll come over and give you the spanking your parents should have given your bitch ass long ago, before you turned into a smug little 125-pound pre-cancerous mole on the body politic.Fuck you, you whiny pussy.

Now this is one thing, and it’s bad enough but for those of us who’ve been on the internet for years, losing one’s temper and offering to kick someone’s ass is something that might happen once or twice. Maybe. In many many years of net surfing. But we’re talking about Jeff Goldstein here, a person who is not normal, a person who gives even violently crazy people a bad name. He’s violently crazy politically (he wants the U.N. nuked and relishes talk about nuking Mecca), and violently crazy personally. Here is the armadillo again, and again he functions as Goldstein’s surrogate, allowing him to say what he otherwise couldn’t:

When the trolls arrived in force earlier this week, the little fella gathered up a few of his firearms, built a blind in the front yard, strapped on his Kevlar and night vision scope, and began lying in wait for any suspicious looking interlopers.[...]

Which is all just a roundabout way of saying that if you’re planning on popping over later unannounced, you might want to make sure you’re wearing an orange safety vest. And carrying a big placard with Dick Cheney’s face on it.

Or a Lynyrd Skynyrd poster, at the very least.

Because while the little armored bastard may be drunk, fatigued, and stinking of digested beef tube—he’s also a damn fine shot who, god bless him, can recognize the friendlies at 200 yards.

Reverie? Murderous frustration sublimated in the Goldstein-as-armadillo-as-Charles Whitman construct? Maybe the paranoid delusions just inevitably become violent:

I just usually delete the death threats in the comments and save the ones that I’ve received from real email addresses.Off topic, but here in Colorado we have the “make my day� law.

Death threats, my ass. The only threats of violence I’ve ever seen at PW came from Goldstein and his commenters. I’ve already covered Pasty’s so let’s deal with those of his thugs. When YearlyKos @ Vegas was announced, PW wingnuts considered it a perfect occasion to indulge in some exterminationist fantasies:

Jeff, I have 2 words for you:Field Trip

tw: ever, as in best idea…

Picture a couple dozen of us, with axe handles in tow, dropping by to say hello. It would be like an Alaskan seal hunt.

It’s a damn shame I won’t be there until the July.

And what do they imagine doing to liberal PW commenters? Well,

No man, no problem:

IP address, Jeff. Send me $20 in gas money and problem is solved (I have a Honda). smirk

No, really:

It will be love at first sight, actus. We will take windy walks on the beach. You can dress up in a hot-red mini and tape back the package, and wear those naughty, naughty pumps. I will seranade you with 2 Live Crew and Ludakris. I will be like: My name is ANtonio Banderas. You are a very beautiful woman. Come, you shall be with me tonight. And then I can show you where they buried Jimmah Hoffa.

Hint hint. But that’s only after he gets the gang rape/forced bukkake treatment:

Then we could all get in a great big circle, like you are used to princess, and put you on your knees and then paddle you like you were an initiate to a German Fraternity. Oh, Einz! Oh, Zwei! Oh, Drei! Oh,…Einz, again! Ja, ja, I am a bad little Fraulein! And then we can get really nasty. But that’s why you come here isn’t it?

And in this thread a few of them advise Goldstein to take guns to EschaConII — hahahahaha SO FUNNY!!

Even Charles Johnson’s troglodytes don’t type this kind of shit (not even about Muslims). Neither does Charles Johnson edit “comments and replace them with his own words.” But then Goldstein thinks his allowing comments at all is a supreme act of charity. Nor does Charles Johnson, or any other wingnut, solicit donations by insulting those of whom he begs. Ahh, but I told ya Goldstein was unique (not to mention tactless and ungrateful)!

I also don’t know of any other wingnut who has such a (stupid) contempt for anonymity/pseudonymity as Goldstein; he really does think it’s worse than plagiarism. It’s no great surprise, then, that Goldstien and his commenters outted a couple of anonymous liberal bloggers, any notion of “Online Integrity” be damned. Nor is it any great surprise to learn that it was probably one of Goldstein’s commenters who wrote about the outed bloggers’ one-year-old child that she “had cocksucking lips.” Goldstein has affected shock that anyone could assume such behavior comes from his commenters! But really, Pasty. C’mon. Even paste-eating imbeciles are not entirely unaware; Goldstein knows his own crowd. It’s obvious that the two lefties were outted and their kid pervertedly and threateningly characterized so that they’d be intimidated and quit making fun of poor beleaguered heroic Jeff Goldstein’s silly rants. After all, no one wants to be clubbed like a baby seal, much less gangbanged and then (ahem ahem) shown where Jimmy Hoffa is buried. But noooo, says Goldstein, what a slur it is to he and his commenters good name to assume that they’d be so depraved! Besides, the liberals made him do it! They didn’t sign the integrity pledge! They deserved what they got! And now Goldstein’s attitude to the two liberals’ private info being in the hands of some wingnuts is very much like Asquith’s to Roger Casement’s diary being in the hands of the thugs of their day: “Excellent. And you need not be particular about keeping it to yourself.”

Is all this violent insanity what Goldstein means to excuse by saying so clumsily, “The price we have to play [sic] is a certain coarsening of the discourse, but people will be better informed in the long run”? I know some particularly hackulent Goldstein apologists will argue that it’s all just irreverant South Park humor. Sorry, not true; unless they mean that Goldstein resembles the sociopathically vengeful Cartman in the “Scott Tenorman Must Die” episode. Really, he’s that insane. I mean it.

It all came out after Goldstein characterized Jane Hamsher as a drunk, which was yet another instance of projection. Jane, as is her wont, turned the other fist, righteously; sort of like Adlai Stevenson to Richard Nixon: “If you’ll stop telling lies about me, I’ll stop telling the truth about you.” Goldstein takes tranquilizers. Which is not a bad thing. What is unfortunate, for everyone, is that he’s either not prescribed enough of them or not given them in high enough dosage. He’s been on them for a while now and.. well look at all the batshit insanity I’ve documented. He’s so thin-skinned he’s probably as transparent as that Mr. Body dork who used to be on Captain Kangaroo. His sex and violence issues plainly call for a more strenous and regimented type of therapy (I’m thinking of a padded cells here). The 2mg klonopin just isn’t doing any good; I mean, look at what happens when someone merely speculates that the rightwing Jerusalem Post’s blog contest might be too heavily loaded with Pajamas Media hacks:

BEHOLD THE POWER OF THE COLLECTIVIST JOOOOS!Two months now, man. Aren’t you embarrassed yet? I mean, for all your criticism about the paucity of decent material in the blogosphere, do you not find it even a bit ironic that all you do is post lard-heavy biscuit recipes and embarrassingly personal attacks on Roger Simon, et al?

How angry can one man be, for Chrissakes?Me, I’m recently on Klonopin. Relaxed now, I find it easier to dismiss, on a visceral level, the garbage you’ve been posting day after day after day for the last two plus months. But from that objective zone so blissfully provided me thanks to a decent 2mg dose of benzodiazepine, I can honestly note that you are making a fucking fool of yourself.

Right. Anyway, there’s gotta be a bright side to studying all this nastiness, right? Well, in conclusion, let me quote this opinion of Goldstein, perhaps the most hilariously moronic thing the speaker ever uttered, surely worthy of the paste-eater himself:

And Dave Price emails: “If not Bill Quick, why not Jeff Goldstein [to replace Ben Domenech at the Washington Post]? The Left has already been about as abusive to him as they can be.” Yep. And it rolls right off. Plus, who could read Goldstein’s stuff and even imagine that it had been previously published?

Who said this? Was this quote taken from one of The Onion‘s “Ask A Faulknerian Idiot-Man Child” columns? No, but it might as well have been; it’s from Glenn Reynolds.

Instayokel’s laff-riot does in a way help me think my post here might have been worth the effort. It may just help to prevent Jeff Goldstein from ever getting a political-writing gig in non-wingnut media; after all, does the Washington Post really want to hire a psychopath to replace a fraud? Goldstein might start emailing lurid questions to Bob Woodward about the size of Deep Throat’s cock or something. So if this post makes someone think twice about hiring Goldstein (who is so on the make), well, then considering how Pasty’s treated people, that possibility makes me smile.

    Here’s what it’s like to be a winger: Every problem is a hole, and you solve it by fucking it. It follows that the guy with the biggest johnson is the best problem-solver. If the problem does not immediately respond to fucking, well….fuck it harder. Iraq is the obvious example of this.

    They are encouraged in this worldview by the occasional success. I mean, look at the American electoral system. They’ve been fucking it since the mid-70′s, and it’s finally their bitch!

    I just don’t know what to say. Goldstein is a tool. Less a tool, really, and more of a …cock?

    Nah, he’s just a homoerotic wannabee.

    With a wannbee dick.

    Mighty fine review of Goldstein’s neuroses. It’s hard to imagine that one man could somehow possess all the sputtering rage, sense of entitlement, deep-seated homophobia and full-on penis envy of an all-boys prep school, but there it is.

    I like the Onion reference, but he’s always reminded me of the Kids in the Hall sketch where everyone knows Scott Thompson is gay except him. “Where’s yor dad, kids?” “He’s upstairs watching gay porn. Again.

    Okay, I had to stop reading that post about half way through. I just glanced at the rest, looking away periodically to prevent my corneas from suffering permanent damage. And then I realized this is only Part 1.

    6000 years and scarcely have I come across anyone so obsessed with expressing fantasies about the male genitalia as Jeff Goldstein. I’m not kidding: most people through history didn’t have this much time, or sufficiently wide access to those outside their own communities.

    Hell, courier services wouldn’t deliver messages but for a high price until the introduction of a penny post in the 18th Century. Mass mailings? Nyu uh – and particularly not for this kind of drivel. Goldstein is a kind of modern penis pioneer, boldly pushing the barriers of banality until he has reached the very limit of limitation itself.

    Once he passes through that, Jeff will be…immortal.

    Wow. That’s amazing. It’s kind of “inside baseball” to me, I don’t really read much of Right Blogistan, but it consistently fascinates me how crazy they are over there. I wondered here the other day what kind of depraved, heartless political hack would be required to continue to approve of and defend the bush/chemey cabal, and this is my answer. These are some sad, ugly, sick folks.

    On the other hand, my dad (a bit of a bastard himself, but a great barehands brawler) once told me “you don’t ever have to worry about the guy who tells you how tough he is, how he’s going to kick your ass. That guy’s got no fight in him. You have to worry about the guy that doesn’t say a word, just watches. Him you gotta drop first”. Advice, I must admit, served me well a few decades ago, before I got sane myself.

    Wow. I don’t read Goldstein or any other wingnut so I’m always grateful when someone does it for me but his goes way beyond reading Goldstein so I don’t have to. I had no idea he was this far gone. What did you have to do to scrub your brain after spending so much time with his hateful insanity?

    There’s a scene in Erin Brockovich when Marg Helgenberger’s character’s kids are swimming in a pool filled with the contaminated water. I spent the last minute or so of it telling the character to get the kids out of the pool. I felt like doing that for you halfway through the post. Get out of the pool!! It’s dangerous.

    [...] Retardo Montalban (who has the best screenname ever, EVER) smacks it right on out of the ballpark over at Sadly, No! with an amazing book-length post documenting in near-molecular detail the emutacular audiocobagitronic wingbot that is Jeff Goldstein: To the casual observer, Goldstein might seem to be a garden-variety internet wingnut, a suburban douchebag whose sad and petty hatreds, frustrations over stagnated ambitions and innate cowardice lead him to adopt a sort of Walter-Mitty-As-Rambo-As-Whackjob-Blogger schtick, whereby all his fantasies of action and genocidal crusade and manly-man aggression are sated through internet jackassery. Of course if Goldstein really wanted some adventure, he could go to the recruiting office, but — hahahahaha — everyone knows that ain’t gonna happen. And yeah, all of this is common enough on the WingNet, although Goldstein has a curiously ambitious drive to be the biggest jerk of them all, and he very nearly succeeds. Added to this drive and his deep, abiding fear that he might be a weenie is his status as “Literature Wingnut� and the unique salad of sex and violence issues which reside in his otherwise empty brainpan; Goldstein’s a hell of a case study.

    But Gary Ruppert takes the fucking cake, man. Gary, please explain how you stretched and pulled and twisted any reasonable definition of “hero” to include Jeff Goldstein? What about Goldstein is “heroic”? His dedication to typing words on his blog, despite the volleys of deadly lefty comments? Please explain this.

    Aw, I was kinda hoping Jeff would at least threaten to come over to your house and beat you up. Maybe someday when he’s rich and famous he’ll be able to claim to have FOX security on the way over to do it for him.

    But seriously, you should take Pasty up on his offer to send you some of his (wink wink, nudge nudge) “flattering” pictures he has of himself. It always helps to have a variety of camera angles and lighting conditions for proper photoshoppery. And I’m sure you can edit out his enormous Johnson.

    Heh, the author sure enjoys the chickenhawk argument. Dead giveaway he’s unserious — and I bet he can explain why the military is overwhelmingly Republican. And I’m sure he woud never call the police, since asking them to perform a dangerous task he hasn’t chosen to perform himself would make him a chickencop. Ditto firefighters, construction workers, doctors, etc: he’s a man of principle, asking no one do anything he himself would not do, I’m sure of it. Kudos to your self-reliance, sir! Hillary says it takes a village, but you and Ted Kaczinski are the proof this is not so.

    I do have to admit some minor pride in the fact that I also play a minor role in this post. While today I’m merely a footnote to someone’s obessive hatred of Jeff, I hope to someday be as widely and deeply reviled as he is. Thank you for helping me take the first small step along that path.

    Heh, the author sure enjoys the chickenhawk argument. Dead giveaway he’s unserious

    Dood, you read Retarado’s post and are prepared to take the position he’s “unserious”?? Are you serious? Go back and read it again, I’ll wait. Ok, back now? Good. I can think of about a billion things you could say if you disagreed with Retardo (although it’s got to be god’s own unpleasant task, defending that sick little bastard), but the one you came up with is UNSERIOUS?? Umm, Sadly, No. That post was, as we like to say out west, as serious as a heart attack. Go back five spaces, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00 and try again, asshat….

    That’s certainly a sound refutation of my arguments. Why would anything make less sense in another language?

    Actually, on second thought, that’s rather apt: if one were ignorant of Prussian, it would not make sense. Similar ignorance regarding English, or perhaps logic, would lead to a similar result in the original version. I believe I have discovered the problem…

    Yes, he makes very weak and silly arguments, well-befitting his name. However irreverent his tone, he clearly believes those arguments, and in that sense is attempting to be serious by advocating them. The result is amusing, but not intentionally so.

    “Arguments”? You think you have an argument? Here’s a counter argument, TallDave: the firefighter / cop / construction worker / doctor analogy doesn’t hold, since Iraq was an elective war and not an accident. The proper analogy would be chickenhawks cheerleading the arsonist, and then calling on the firefighters, who, when they ask for help, are told by the chickenhawks, “hey, you’re the experts, put out the fire!”

    TallDave–

    Reading your work, it’s hard to believe you have the intellectual capability to judge the seriousness of an argument. However, on the off-chance that you’re smarter than you sound, you might consider,say, refuting some of what Retardo had to say, rather than merely commenting on his having the handle “Retardo”.

    That isn’t exactly the work of a serious person. It resembles preschool disagreements a bit more.

    Now TallDave, maybe Retardo just really like scouring the internet for instances of cock. I’m told among a certain segment, this is a fairly popular endeavor. Also, you really have to give it to him for the way he has so neatly captured the ways in which Jeff has obviously wounded him, sort of like Rainman’s big book of personal injuries. 4/15/05 – Threatened me with cock; 4/16 – ignored my blog; and the like.

    Maybe he just needs a hug and a shoulder to cry on?

    Here’s a counter argument, TallDave: the firefighter / cop / construction worker / doctor analogy doesn’t hold, since Iraq was an elective war and not an accident.

    Calling police is optional. So is surgery, living in a building, etc. So is war (after all, worst case you can always surrender). Hey, guess what — this is a democracy. We elect a government that decides whether to have police, go to war, etc. Advocating a policy doesn’t require one take a direct hand in its implementation.

    The rest was sort of silly. Well, at least you’re trying.

    You’ve established that you know nothing about medicine. You’ve established thatyou know nothing about foreign languages. You’re well on the way to delineating the many areas in which you lack any knowledge or insight. Please continue; it’s hilarious.

    What’s really a tribute to the excellence of this post is that the Protein Wisdom readers are on their best behavior. Instead of swarming over here to act like a bunch of redneck assholes, they don’t want to come within 200 feet of a massive, reeking pile of Jeff Goldstein’s craziest Internet statements, meticulously documented by Retardo with a hatred and care not seen since John Dean torpedoed Richard Nixon. Of course they’re probably also a little chastened by all the bad press their recent thuggery at Thersites’ site got.

    So instead of serious wingnuts, what we get is a loser like TallDave, a stringer at a C-grade wingnut site, doing some kind of Pat-Boone-in-a-sweater number (chuckling mildly at the crazy liberals/kids dancing to the rock & roll music). Get off the stage, clown, you’re stinking up the joint!

    Apparently you didn’t understand my very simple argument, which makes your moron comment amusingly ironic. Seeing, joining the police is like joining the army. Calling the police (or, more generally, advocating they fight crime) is like advocating war. If you say it’s wrong to advocate the armed forces fight a war (a dangerous job) while not joining the army, it must also be wrong to advocate police fight crime (also a dangerous job) while not joining the police.

    Soldiers can’t leave. It is called AWOL.

    Yes, he’s vile and yes, he’s a sociopath but most of all, he’s a genuinely sad man. He’s quite bright (IQ hovering around 128, I’d say) but that not a big enough number for this type, he want’s “his boys” to think that he’s carrying 148! It’s like that in so many little fragmented internal areas, like a guy who has a perfectly normal dick, but he’s convinced it’s laughably small, so he overcompensates and pretends to himself that he’s got a boa constrictor in his shorts (it’s awful what this dick size-phobia does to the wiring of some poor saps, no?). You can tell just by reading the pace and structure of his language that he practices “come-back” lines, literally saying them out loud to practice his delivery to (he’s reading this right now and saying “No I don’t!!” out loud…then, realizing what he’s done, mouths it silently to himself, again and again).

    Most of you probably don’t realize how difficult every day is for a manically repressed homosexual. I’ve seen a couple of good friends go through years of self hatred before finally dealing with the hazard. It’s way ugly. There’s only so much you can beat yourself up until it exhausts you, so you lash out at everyone else. It’s not uncommon to to see the “distraction game” going on repeatedly, you know, how he picks someone out of a crowd and screams “Faggot!!” at the guy, a total stranger, anything to get the spotlight off himself. Then he has to make another comment pointed in another direction, lest anyone catch on to what he’s doing, and then another, frantically juggling all of this in deep desperation. As irritating as it is to us, it must be agony for him.

    It’s easy to discount his physical threats as bogus (as so many wingnut threats are) but I get the feeling he’d actually like someone to take him up on his invitations. Mind you, I think he’s the very personification of a paper tiger (in a way that is too icky and hyper-pathetic to dwell on) but….I’m thinking he wants to be *punished* for his self imagined flaws (thus, the strutting “Go on! Hit me…please?”). And don’t be surprised if he actually flips out and puts a bullet in someone one of these days. You know those sadistic-seeming fantasies of his? They are so clearly contrived that they are likely really masochistic in origin, with him describing in slow, erotic detail, all that he want done to him. He’s internally damaged enough that he could end up seeing some senseless crime as his “gateway” to his atonement, a prison world where he is recognized as the bitch that he sees himself as, a place where he’s continually punished for the crime of his “weakness”, a holy-space of truth and representing a very alien sort of “peace”. This is his secret paradise and he would likely fill spiral notebook after spiral notebook with lunatic curses for any “liberal” judge that would put him in a mental hospital instead.

    Like I said, he’s a genuinely sad man.

    TallDave, you really are thick, aren’t you? Or are you just doing your best to avoid giving us examples of Retardo’s “weak” arguments? Anyway, last time: calling the police because someone else is committing a crime is not an analogy for cheerleading an elective war. The analogy would be to commit a crime (or more precisely, advocating that someone commit a crime) and then, when the police ask you to perform your civic duty and help them, decline by saying they’re the experts. So, now that your analogy has been shown not to hold (for the second time), let’s return to the post: give us an example of one of Retardo’s “weak” arguments.

    Ya know, it’s funny. The pro-PW trolls really aren’t trying in any way shape or form deny the main argument of Retardo’s post.

    From a post by Big E. over at Protein Wisdom:

    When you think about it it fits a pattern. Liberals are generally self loathing and slaves to their wanton desires. Clearly Sadly No is trying to piss you off bad enough so that you will find him, give him a good beating and then finish him off with a good cock slapping. For all we know he’s just trying to save a little money, from what I hear that kind of thing cost’s about $300/hr if you use a professional. Liberals: Always trying to get somebody else to pay for their play.

    Baby, if you want a good cock-slapping, I’m your boy. I’ll leave you bruised with pleasure. Can’t you just feel my manmeat against your face? I know you can. Same goes for your man Jeff G, too. Just say the word, honey.

    I find dick jokes generally amusing and not at all empirical evidence that someone is a “sociopath” or a “repressed homosexual.” And the PW gay jokes are typically set up in parody of a homophobic person, as this post half-heartedly admits.

    Bottom line: if jokes of a similar temperment (though probably less well-written) were authored on a left-wing blog, say, oh, I dunno, TBogg or any of the other legion that use every post to analyze “fucking fuckity fuck fuckwits (fuck!)” all day, you’d be falling all over yourselves to slap the author on the back and declare him “the ROXXOR!,” rather than abusing the DSM IV by terribly misusing the word sociopath (hint: sociopaths do the OPPOSITE of use highly charged language and humor to express themselves; mild autism is a risk group for sociopathy). If you guys are keen on mental dx’s however, the length of the above post, complete with hours and hours of relentless trolling through the Protein Wisdom archives, smacks of “OCD.”

    Not that I would stoop to mocking the author for his illness.

    Though I would let him know that he’s almost two years late on the theme for his lead graphic:

    The argument being what? If you take a bunch of his absurdism and venting out of context, you can make him look a bit unhinged? Wow, what a major accomplishment.

    Seriously, though, since I know shit like this if bound to set off a rash of wannabe-Retardos, (excuse me while I compose myself) I would suggest warming up on some Hunter S. Thompson.

That’s some of that bass-ackwards “reinterpritation of authorial intent” nonsense Majikthise (she of the Wittgensteinian Dirty Sanchez, apparently) took Goldstein to task for, innit? I take it you never read HST’s stuff on Nixon, Reagan, Bush The Elder or Bush The Lesser. Or his screeds against the police or the military. Jeez.

    Calling for violent attacks on ideological opponents – or anyone who strays from the company line – is “abusrdism” and quoting folks by linking directly to the quotes in question so folks can double-check the lunacy on their own is “out of context”. Right.

    I have read everything he ever wrote. Several times. Including collections of essays from the National Enquirer days which were a helluva lot more conservative/rugged-individualism oriented than liberal-progressivism. I wasn’t trying to compare myself to HST, or pigeon-hole him politically, I feel he was far too complex to put any political label on.

    The point I was trying to make was anyone with the time or inclination could go through his stuff and selectively quote him into any kind of raving lunatic they desired. It accomplishes nothing, although this has been amusing.

    I wouldn’t call “rugged individualism” as equal to “conservatism” by any stretch of the immagination, especially not in today’s world of government saves for big corporations (a la the airline industry) or the almost pathological desire one hears from the wingnut brigade to have the govenment intrude on private affairs from gay marriage to date mining. Plus, HST did champion the idea tha government – be it state, local or national – work for the people, rather than just the fatcats. Brush up on the stuff he did inre: “The Battle Of Aspen”. It’s in The Great Shark Hunt, but I can look up the page number if you like.

    You could parse Thompson’s stuff and take away he was a raving lunatic, and…well, you’d be right. He was, he admitted as much on a number of occasions. But remember, the only people he threatened were the people that represented authority. Goldstein’s spews not at the halls of power (Republican power, anyway), but anyone who questions authority.

    Did you read the post in question, or does threatening to club someone like a baby seal not seem a wee bit violent to you? Granted, when called, Goldstein backpeddled like Trentt Lott, but I say if he’s got the sack to say it, he should have the sack to stand up for it.

    June 15, 2006 at 4:09

    B Moe,
    I freely admit I don’t read Goldstein’s site and haven’t since the first dick-slapping threat popped up. Why should I? It’s quite obvious he has no use for someone like me, has no interest in hearing my ideas, and would probably get off on seeing me get stomped by a horde of raving Hell’s Angels on a dangerous cocktail of PCP, crystal meth and toilet cleaner. At best, he’s a angry little dingbat with nothing serious to add to the convorsation and a writing style that’s the blogging equivalent of a “Bum Fights” video. At worst, he’s a seriously troubled individual who should be kept away from children. Personally, I favor the latter, but in any event, there’s only so many hours in the day. If I want defense of the status quo, there’s always the mainstream media and it’s not like Goldstein’s ever going to write anything that I’d find politically enlightening. Be fair.

    Apart from that, though, what is a fine example of you “paste eaters” questioning authority? Now, we probably should define what we mean by “questioning authority”. I’m talking about calling out the powers that be, the folks that actually run things, when they’re actions can be construed as a serious threat to the status of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I’m not talking about yacking off to whatever dumbshit “Hitlery” said this week about violent video games. In other words, is your “quesion of authority” just another way of saying “partisan dickery”, or are you really willing to take the fight to The Man?

    I’m keenly interested, so do tell.

Note: no points for railing against a political appointee for “not being conservative enough”, either before they’re nominated or after they’ve called out the Bush Administration on whatever goofball policy they’re calling out.

    And how does a true conservative “question authority”, anyway? Isn’t the whole idea behind “conservatism” the stroke that things ain’t broke, so don’t you dare even think about trying to fix ‘em? Isn’t it the idea that laws are made to be followed and never questioned, because they’re for our own good? Isn’t it the idea that the times, they don’t need a-changin’, and you’re a dangerous subversive who hates God if you dare say otherwise (or, indeed, point out otherwise)?

    Nope. I ain’t that kind of cat. I am a seeker of knowledge, and I ask questions to learn. I work to make myself assured in my positions, but if there was a conservative argument out that could put forth a good reason to abandon my progressive ideals (civil liberties, responsible and open government, social and economic justice, etc.), it would make me think and reconsider my opinions. Hasn’t happened yet, but as a wise man said, it’s the journey, not arrival.

    “What’s the most telling example of a Protein Wisdom wingnut (hey, as long as they’re ownin’ up to it) blatantly questioning a policy or position held by those who hold the most political power and authority in this country (which would be the GOP right now). Note: no points for railing against a political appointee for “not being conservative enoughâ€?, either before they’re nominated or after they’ve called out the Bush Administration on whatever goofball policy they’re calling out.”

    I can only speak for myself, but I disagree with most of the religious wing of the Republican Party on about everything, I think the current Administrations failure to curb pork-barrel spending is appalling. I think they got a raw deal on the immediate Katrina affair, and unfortunately the hyperbolic caterwauling by the left and media then has blinded most people to the true disgraces that have followed. I disagree with the gay marraige ban. I disagree with most of the right’s multitude of opinions on immigration. The honest truth is I disagree with them about damn near everything but their mid-east foreign policy. But since that is the only thing the fucking Democrats can do right now, is be contrarians about terrorism, I am not accepted by them anymore either. One of the lovely ironies of the current mess is I am a life long Democrat, campaigned for Carter and never voted for a Republican president, but have been completely ostrasized by the party for questioning their authority on middle-east foreign policy. It isn’t only happening to Leiberman you know.

    You see I question all authority, whether they are in power or not, because frankly authority out of power is much more likely to lie to you to get back in.

    This is the first of two parts. This piece was about Goldstein the psychopath; the next will be more about Goldstein the “writer,” Goldstein the hackulent wingnut, Goldstein the purveyor of dolchstosslegende.

    Moe gets bonus points for the Stupidest Goldstein Defense Ever: the idea that his threats of sexual assault are mere “absurdism” and “venting” is ..well, almost as insane as Goldstein himself. Even more hilariously crazy is the argument that suck-up-to-power Goldstein can be compared favorably to HST.

    B Moe,
    Thanks for your answer. If I am acurate in assuming you currently support the Bush Administration because of their stance on terror, you’re telling me you’re basically tossing all that over the side – thus allowing the growth of authority in the hard-right yay-hoos who do feverently support such things – because of one issue that, frankly, neither party is doing anything serious about. I’d rather not get into a debate on the relative merits of of how the war on terror is pursued by both major parties – frankly because I’ve come to the decision neither is coming close to actually doing anything beyond winning the odd jingoistic/ideological vote and filling the pockets of the military-industrial complex – because, actually, I doubt we’ll get anywhere with each other.

    Don’t you feel that by supporting the Bush Administration’s policies on terrorism at the expense of all other views (if I’m understanding you properly), doesn’t that mean you tacitly support those other policies, such as gay marriage, the Katrina kerfluffle, religious fundamentalists in governmental control, etc.? I mean, it seems like the modern GOP sells the whole Bush Package as an all-or-nothing deal – particularly given the not-at-all subtle implication that to disagree with, say, No Child Left Behind is the exact same thing as flying a jet into an office building – how do you argue the seperation? I have heard this argument before, especially in the run-up to the 2004 elections when I kept asking Bush supporters why I should support a candidate that runs against everything I believe in and all my progressive ideals.*

    I’m with you about the Democratic Party, on a national level anyway, but probably for different reasons. They don’t want to hear progressive dissenters, either.I feel abandoned by their hard-move to the right (though, and a nod back to HST, the Democratic machine abandoning the “little guy” for the money men isn’t anything new, as Chicago ’68 taught us). Weak and ineffectual when it comes to complete non-issues like abortion or the idiotic pledge “debate” or foolishness like ID, when all it would take is saying “Hey…this isn’t important. Jobs are, and here’s what we got working…” And hell, they really don’t have that, not on a national level, anyway. As for the WoT, I fail to see much dissent from the DNC types as a whole, except when it was safe politically to do so. The Greens managed to make themselves completely goofy in fairly short order, and the Libertarians…well, if we can’t say anything good about anyone, and so forth.

    And so much for that, for it is neither here nor there. I can respect your stances, though I obviously can’t agree with the WoT issue, and I cannot wrap my brain around the disconnect in having such views and still support an administration that has done very little apart from consolidate it’s unquestionable authority in all matters. I know this probably sounds a bit judgemental, and I apologize for that, but I honestly cannot make that thought process fit.

    * It seems like it basically boiled down to little more than “the Islamofacists WILL KILL YOU if you don’t vote for Bush,” which frankly doesn’t float.

    I posted a casual comment (http://tinyurl.com/rwcuh) at his spunkshack of facializees a while back and the swallowers went nuts. My site was literally swamped with hits out of PW from corporate IPs providing for-profit care for the old and terminally ill (I sh*t u not – I saved my logs).

    We ended up shooting bow shots for a few days but when I mentioned that he should spend more time with his neglected wife instead of devoting so much time to his 5th tier strategy of blog publishing to ward off perishability less he risk losing his wife to his handyman brother – well, he went all Fahrenheit 451 on me and redacted most if not all of my logged comments while also implementing some automatic redirect function of what he guessed was my originating IP. But man, the mention of his cachetic libido really blew his home-soldered fuse. And your post…well it just laid waste to him in a manner that I will have him anguishing for months to come. That much I have come to discern of the fella.

    They’ve certainly gone heavy with the paste in their Cheerios this morning: the hard work in this post was arranging it; the research itself was easy. After Goldstein threatened Kevin with cock-violence (which is “humor”! and can’t you moonbats take a joke?!?!), I merely googled slang words for penis with “protein wisdom” or “jeff goldstein” and was rewarded with a cache of insanity. The only obsessions related to any of this are Goldstein’s for cock and violence, which I’ve demonstrated.

    Maybe I should loan it to you.

    Tell me WTF do I have to do with Olberman? Nothing, but apparently he watched Olberman last night and GOT REALLY PISSED OFF and he’s also pissed at me for reasons I’ve already explained, and so tied me to his anti-Olberman diatribe by some spidery connection regarding similar “styles”.

    Put in a way that even a paste-eater might understand, his Olberman is a strawman, but he had to go the extra step of using a charicature of me to attack his exaggerated Olberman. Hence, “proxy strawman”.

    You should really consider using a clothespin on your nose when hanging out at Goldstein’s all the time; the paste fumes are giving you dainbramage.

    No, Shortbus. As opposed to the straw-Olberman he’d like to attack much more. See, he had an imagined Olberman against whom he’d like to rail, but due to some extenuating or mitigating factors he engaged Retardo’s post as a proxy for that straw man for which he (thought he) actually brought ammo.

    “Put in a way that even a paste-eater might understand, his Olberman is a strawman, but he had to go the extra step of using a charicature of me to attack his exaggerated Olberman. Hence, “proxy strawmanâ€?.

    You should really consider using a clothespin on your nose when hanging out at Goldstein’s all the time; the paste fumes are giving you dainbramage. “

    He is not using you, charicature or otherwise, to attack Olberman you illiterate fool, he is comparing you to Olberman in a direct critique of both of you. There is no straw man or proxy anywhere in the article.

    What a serendipidous bit of irony, this leading into Retardo’s anxiously awaited critique of Pastys theories of intentionalism. You just can’t make this shit up.

    Hog on Ice means what he fucking says, it is not a complicated piece, there is nothing to interpret. If you think he is pitting Retardo and Olberman against each other as straw men, you don’t know what the fuck you are reading. Period.

    So…he’s so concerned that his young son might one day read mean things about Dad in the comments to years-old posts that he removes them, but he seems fine with that same son reading Dad’s cock-slapping and man-on-dog fantasies?

    Kathleen, sweet possum, the only thing impressive about this post is the amount of time it must have taken retardo to do all of the copying and pasting. You see, Jeff gets a leftie stalker trying to spooge on his shoe to drum up their hitcount every week. This is one of the more boring attempts, although the Napoleon photoshop is pretty good. Other than that, there’s just not a whole lot here other than a bunch of people trying to figure out clever ways to call Jeff a fag, which, as a libertarian supporter of gay rights, I find kind of offensive.

    Here’s what Kevin wrote on Catch.com:

    Well, for starters, I know of one Count Chocula impersonator [me, pasty] who can give up his leisurely life of bloggin’ whilst breast-feeding and doing JELL-O® shots underneath his kid’s crib and “proceed” to the local recruitment office stat.

    To paraphrase Goldstein, “Jeff is a chickenhawk because he is a chickenhawk. And that’s all there is to it, really.”

    So, Kevin can suggest I’m a breastfeeding coward (“I never said he was a coward — just that he was hiding under his kid’s crib and needs to go enlist NOW, or at least, as soon as he’s done giving the boy his breast milk”), but when I offer to meet up with him so he can repeat this to my face, I’m out of line?

    Must be that old cycle of violence thing. I started it by having no fucking idea who Kevin was, Kevin posts some personal shit about me, and I respond by offering to slap him across the face with my dick. In between breast feedings. Where, you know, milk comes out of my nipples and goes into my son’s throat.

    But yeah, I’m the one with issues.

    Anyway, because Kevin is acting all wounded here, I thought I’d provide the context. Not that it matters. Revisiting some of these comments even without the context makes me smile. Man, I do love the COCK!

Of course YOU’RE gonna have to stay out behind the barn ’cause you just totally creep me out.”

Are you really so fucking dim you don’t see the contradictions and irony, here? Fuck it, I’m going to bed, you are know just starting to depress me.

    Because so far, your claims to liberal positions are just that- claims. You’re here in support of a freakish wingnut who has homoerotic and S&M fantasies about liberals & who seemingly cannot swallow enough BS from the administration.
    If you were here in defense of Tyler Cowan or Eugene Volokh or someone not-fucking-insane, I would be willing to cut you slack. But you’re not…
    So I don’t feel the need to cut you any slack, or even fucking believe you when you claim to be a hardcore democrat whose only disagreement with dems is about the war (except for dems like Hillary, who support the war… I guess you’re a big Hillary fan, since all of your other positions are so amazingly liberal, and she’s such a big supporter of the “no-timetable” wing of the dems).
    Or maybe, *just maybe*, being a big ole Goldstein fan, you’re merely full of shit. Not Goldstein-frustrated-homemaker-diaper-full-of-shit, either; Im talking septic-tank-full-of-shit.
    (the first rule of having a reasonable debate on the net is not making unverifiable claims like this. if your argument is worth shit, then defend it on the merits, don’t go bleating about how you’re being pigeonholed, particularly when you’re acting like such a fucking pigeon- it’s like going on the board at FreeRepublic defending NAMBLA and then getting offended if someone assumes that you’re a homosexual, rather than a gun-totin’ Xtian right-winger who just happens to think NAMBLA’s Ok).

    LOL It’s called “volunteer army.� Police aren’t supposed to quit in the middle of a shift because someone is shooting at them either.

    So you’re saying that you can’t tell the different between “aren’t supposed to” and “illegal”? No wonder you’re having problems comprehending what’s being said to you.
    Oh, and LOL, idiot.

    If you say it’s wrong to advocate the armed forces fight a war (a dangerous job) while not joining the army, it must also be wrong to advocate police fight crime (also a dangerous job) while not joining the police.

    This analogy would hold if the police *created* crime in the process of fighting it. There isn’t a fucking *war* unless the soldiers are sent over there to fight it, you see. Since it was clearly a matter of choice to invade Iraq (ie they weren’t invading us, even if you argue that Iraq presented some danger), you’re not just advocating that someone do a dangerous job that already exists & needs doing.
    As a good citizen, Id be willing to run into my neighbor’s house if it were on fire to try to rescue them. That doesn’t mean I have to become a fireman- Im confortable with my level of contribution to my society, and specialization dictates that we all cannot be policemen, firemen, doctors, etc.
    IMO, defending one’s country is not like that- in war, everyone ought to do their part. That is, if you truly feel that the war is worth fighting, you ought to pick up a rifle and join the rest of the former shopkeepers/salesmen/mechanics/etc on the line. Or STFU. One cannot complain about crime without being willing to do one’s part (be it reporting criminals, or even intervening when necessary). Likewise, one cannot advocate for military action without being willing to do one’s part. In this case, IMO, that means picking up the rifle, not the keyboard.
    Now, perhaps fear prevents you from serving- in which case, you’re merely a coward. Or perhaps it’s family obligations (ie not wanting to leave young children behind)- in which case, you’re a worthless hypocrite, since many of the soldiers are making the same choice- but chosing to defend the country & you & yours. A freeloader, benefiting from the actions of those more patriotic than yourself.
    If I believed that the country was in danger and needed to be defended, I would stand up and serve. You do not. That is a difference between us.
    It’s like that fire in a neighbor’s house I mentioned before- you’re standing in front of it, bemoaning the children trapped inside. But you won’t go in yourself to save them- instead you’re calling on the fire department, your neighbors, anyone but you to head in. Me, I know enough to know that the kids aren’t acutally in there- but that doesn’t make you any less chickenshit.

    So, you’re a coward, or an unpatriotic hypocrite. Or a liar- if you don’t actually believe that the war was necessary, it would make sense that you wouldn’t want to go fight it. A liar and a murdering sack of shit, that is.
    Take your pick.

    Jeff’s talent is using humor in such a way as to incisively pick apart the political opposition. In the process he shows that the Left, by its responses to him, is utterly humorless. You’d each do yourself and your party a favor by being less angry and laughing at yourself on occasion. By picking on Jeff, you’re projecting your humorlessness and insecurity about your beliefs. Not a good strategy for success.

    Anyway, because Kevin is acting all wounded here, I thought I’d provide the context. Not that it matters.

    Wounded? Me? Happily, no. You’ve falsely claimed in the past that I was trolling your site calling you a “chickenhawk” and a “coward” prior to my Catch post, providing, I guess, further justification for your dick/cock-slappery. Now, by your own admission, I’m some guy you’d never heard of before. I’m glad we’ve cleared that up.

    In between breast feedings. Where, you know, milk comes out of my nipples and goes into my son’s throat.

    Well, first, let me say, “Yuck.” And now let me go on record that in my post you were breast-feeding Pablo. Sorry for the confusion. I’m letting you know that because I care.

    I have to admit that I agree with Lo Ping Wong: Fafblog is very funny. But, it’s the only source of humor I can find from my political opposition.

    That said, the comment Jeff is quoted on about John Cole’s commenters being “a band of dickless fucktards” is pretty much right on target.

    I have been a visitor to Jeff’s site for a couple years now, and have never seen the comments you have picked for this post. (Well, maybe a couple I’ve seen.) But in the agregate, Jeff’s comments must number in the hundreds if not the thousands. I could go to any blog, snip comments from the blogger, and edit them into a negative theme as was done here. It may take a lot of time (and this one must have taken hours), but it’s just some creative editing to structure a theme that shows the blogger in a certain negative light. But the fact to any regular visitor of PW is that Jeff is a very sharp cat, with a style of writing that cuts to your bone in a way no bloggers can. And you know it. It’s THIS that pisses you off so much.

    “Jeff is a very sharp cat, with a style of writing that cuts to your bone in a way no bloggers can.”

    Jeff -can- be funny, but he’s also a little… je ne se quois. His writing’s a little turgid for my taste, I guess, but it comes down to taste. He hardly has the stylish writing market cornered. Speaking as a once and future professional writer/editor, Roy at Alicublog can turn a mean phrase, and reading Wolcott makes me wish I could write like that. YMMV.

    Jeff’s talent is using humor in such a way as to incisively pick apart the political opposition.

    First, you write like you’d like to sound about 5 times smarter than you actually are (which would appear to not be a difficult task). What’s wrong with “using humor to”? How does adding “in such as way as” add anything, other than teenage awkwardness?
    Second, Im not sure what part of pathetically challenging people to fights from the safety of the internets qualifies as humor OR incisive political commentary. Likewise the cock-slapping bit. etc. Jeff’s talents appear to lie in the way of being a potty-mouth & sounding brave when he doesn’t have to back it up.
    Of course, I can see why that makes him a role model for you, since you think “band of witless fucktards” is such a cleverly incisive political comment that you bother to quote it as a shining example of combining wit & truthiness. Really, *that’s* the example you use to as a counterweight to the post’s examples of sexual repression and cowardice? *That’s* the best bit you could come up with from The Mouth Of Jeff?

    But the fact to any regular visitor of PW is that Jeff is a very sharp cat, with a style of writing that cuts to your bone in a way no bloggers can. And you know it. It’s THIS that pisses you off so much.

    Yeah, that’s why Sadly is getting ready to do it’s montage-takedown of Randy Barnett- because smart conseratives just ‘cut to our bone’ (wtf, you’ve apparently learned at The Jeff’s knee(?) how to get a dick reference in there- the expression is “the bone” not “your bone”, fool). At least, that was the plan, until Sadly discovered that RB isn’t a penis-obsessed moron with a penchant for violent sexual bondage fantasies, so there was no material to work with. RB’s just a bright conservative guy with interesting (although frequently wrongheaded) ideas- so they’ve elected to do a part II of Jeff instead.

    It’d be better if you could support this claim by demonstrating how Goldstein’s comments have been edited to be misleading in this instance. The fact that you think his dick jokes “cut to the bone” doesn’t really mean much – lots of people just have bad taste.

    Carleton The Doorman said,

    “such a cleverly incisive political comment that you bother to quote it as a shining example of combining wit & truthiness”

    The incisive political comment that can be found on Jeff’s site come from posts and comments other than what have been compiled here. “Band of witless fucktards” is all the critique that Cole’s commentariat cesspool deserves, but it’s hardly representative of what’s said by Jeff or most of his commenters. You’re particularly stuck on “cock slapping”, and I can only guess that this is so because you’re observations of PW are confined to this single post. If you possessed 20% of my intelligence, you’d take the time to do your homework; but I get what I expect from you: junior high-level sewer-speak, wrapped with equally juvenile writing criticism. Softball insults, a tendency to dwell on the perverse, and a stunning ability to miss the entire point of discussion.

    Brian, I think I see what you’re getting at. It’s not that Goldstein is a petty, mean-spirited bully with a penchant for cock jokes. It’s just that he’s misunderstood. Poor, poor Jeff Goldstein, his genius is just too great for our feeble minds! If we were as intelligent as you, I bet we’d see a whole new level of meaning in his comments!

    Sarcasm aside, I’ve noticed that truly intelligent people don’t go around bragging about their intelligence. Saying “If you possessed 20% of my intelligence…” is sure to make you look like an idiot. Try another tactic and you might actually get your point across.

    [...] On his THIGHS?! Jesus Saint Mary Mother of Joseph! Assuming this account is true (and, knowing Goldstein, that’s a pretty generous assumption), wha’d he do next, slap the guy’s face with his monster schlong? Touch his sister in her secret places – lots? Luckily, what did prove useful, given the circumstances, were my New Balance cross trainers and a parking spot close to the mall exit—both of which allowed me to lose the two paunchy security guards who chased me down the escalator and huffed after me into the parking garage.

    A pseudo-trackback:

    What Borat tells us about Jeff Goldstein:

    Goldstein is a conservative who enjoys recounting violent homosexual fantasies he has about his left-wing opponents. Apparently I’m a humorless leftie who failed to appreciate his wit until I saw Borat. The nude wrestling scene is probably the model of Goldstein’s fantasy. Understanding that’s what Goldstein is about makes him less creepy, maybe all of one percent less.

I’m touched: Rather than send ‘Pablo’ and ‘Vercingetorix’ to beat me with axe-handles or threaten my toddler or ’show me where Jimmy Hoffa is buried,’ instead he sent them on a frantic net search so thorough that it gives child-abducting, serial-killing stalkers (or Tacitus, for that matter) a bad name.
