Now THAT’S Dirty!

Your Saturday Bottomless Mug o’ Stupid Is Served, Rand

Tweet, Twit, Twat

Schrödinger’s Candidate, the man on all sides of all issues all at once, asks an open-ended question of Twitter, and hiliarity follows, as you can imagine.

Presented by D’vorce D’spousa, documentarian fabulist, convicted felon, fired Y’all Qaeda business school dean, and would-be bigamist:

Very post-racial of D’Souza. Surely he won’t pass up a chance to call Obama a bigot, will he?

It’s sort of pathological with D’Vorce D’Spousa, innit?

But what about his other favorite punch-line?

Phew! I’d hate for a straight guy who went to prison to miss a chance to punch his dance card, so to speak. Ben Carson is smiling somewhere

Our blog’s old pal E-Squared has disinvited short-fingered vulgarian Donald Trump from addressing his gathering of paste-eating mouth-breathers at the Redstate Gathering (which still sounds like a bad horror flick on the ABC Movie of the Week to me). Take it away, Ewick!

“I have tried to give a great deal of latitude to Donald Trump in his run for the Presidency.

“He is not a professional politician and is known for being a blunt talker. He connects with so much of the anger in the Republican base and is not afraid to be outspoken on a lot of issues. But there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross.

“Decency is one of those lines.

“As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.

“In a CNN interview, Mr. Trump said of Megyn Kelly, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”

“It was not the “blood coming out of her eyes” part that was the problem.

“I think there is no way to otherwise interpret Mr. Trump’s comment. In an attempted clarification, Mr. Trump’s team tells me he meant “whatever”, not “where ever.”

Can it be that Ewick son of Ewick, the man who called a sitting Justice of the US Supreme Court a child-molesting goat f***er has boundaries? Or is it that as a Fox News contributor (not sure he’s still on the payroll, but whatevs) he’s just following orders.

Anyway the liberal side of Twitter is going a little frothy finding some of his more choice lines about the ladies, and the conservative side is taking Ewick to the woodshed, you know, for being politically correct.

Your Bottomless Mug of Stupid is Served, Gov. Walker

Walker Tweet

(Note to Walker: the only thing I want to see you in is a jail cell)

Somehow or other, Scott Walker—the wall-eyed git hired by the Koch Brothers to enrich their fortune in the midwest—managed to screw up his entry into the 2016 Goat Rodeo by tweeting it at after 5PM on a Friday, when the elite national press is already at their third inside-the-beltway cocktail party of the night, and won’t be taking dictation.

Walker, of course, claims that He Didn’t Do It (does he ever do anything without having a warm pile of cold interns to blame?), and Twitter agrees:

“We’re looking into today’s issue, and we’ve determined the Walker team was not at fault,” a Twitter spokesman said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

The mystery continues. But mostly, who cares?

The Morning Quote


After Obama tweeted that he’d spent his morning listening to the new album from The Black Keys, the rock band tweeted back asking if they could use Air Force One for their upcoming gigs. A few hours later – at 8 p.m. on a weeknight – Obama tweeted his response to the band: ”It’s not mine; just a loaner. Maybe you can come play at the White House sometime instead?”

Free-range Conspiracy Theorist Glenn Beck

Free-range Conspiracy Theorist Glenn Beck

Free-range conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck takes on the issue of the day: HRClinton’s Twitter followers:

“She can’t even be honest about the fans on her social media sites. A study was done of her Facebook page. Again, we had to go across the ocean. We had to go to I think it was The Guardian in England to get anybody in the media to do a job. They found something odd about her followers. Seven percent of her followers were from Baghdad. That’s not really comforting or real. And on Twitter, it was revealed that 15%, about 544,000 of her Twitter followers, are bogus accounts.

If her team is willing to lie about Facebook and Twitter fans and make people up just out of whole cloth, what else are they willing to lie about?

Interesting premise, but let’s do a little investigation of our own. First off all, it wasn’t the (usually excellent) Guardian, it was the (always wretched) The Daily Fail, er, Mail that worked out that HRC has some bogus followers.

Let’s dive into the Fail:, the oldest publicly available Twitter-auditing tool, reports that 44 per cent of the former secretary of state’s followers are ‘good’; 15 per cent are ‘fake’; and 41 per cent are ‘inactive,’ meaning that they never tweet or reply to any tweets.

…Another tool,, sampled 320,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s followers and found that 18 per cent were fake.

Chilling, no? But just for shits and giggles, let’s see what happens when we run Glenn Beck through the same analytic services!
