PS Read: Chicken, Hypocrite & According to His Logic, Bigot Extraordinaire: Oct 13, 2010


1) Not a swift read.
2) Are you going to produce correspondence, tax information, filing information or some other piece of information to corroborate your account that Rauhauser instigated these supposed attacks? Or are you so lacking in basic analytic skills that you think correlation is causation?
3) "the coordinating affront is an organization hired by National Candidates," (I think you meant 'front,' but English doesn't seem to be your strong suit)(maybe you meant 'coordinATED'?)is a rather strong claim to make. Are you also claiming that anyone who shares in a like speech message on a like venue on the internet is necessarily aligned? That rather undermines the position of Tea Party Activists who claim that the bigots are not representative of the movement. So which is it?

I eagerly await your response and hope you aren't a Stalinist like Greg W Howard, who solicits comments, but then violates his own stated terms of use--thus creating a 'Potemkin Comments Section.' As a precaution, I'm archiving this post, just in case you are as much of a Stalinist as I think you are.

Greg W Howard: Professional Chicken Hiding in a Potemkin Coop


Is that a bull or an ox in your picture? Your tone switched from swagger to emasculated. To me, it sounds like your wit was lacking, so to save face you're going to claim it's a liberal conspiracy when a little tweeter gets mocked by other little tweeters.

I posit that you know that you were the target of satire. But like everything, you hope to convert it into a) a means to draw attention to yourself & b) a political opportunity.

These are the tactics of the intellectually bankrupt. You are probably going to delete this comment too, just because you're afraid of speech.

And if you drew internet lunatics to you, so much the better. You yell so loudly into the internet, you're surprised someone heard you? Personally, I think those who made those threats are stupid nuts. For that reason, I find it interesting how you #tcot freaks are so unwilling to distance yourselves from your nuttier comrades. But you did shout into the ether. I'm not saying you deserved these threats, but surely you knew that your belligerent tone (on twitter at least) was going to be an attractive nuisance. And if you didn't, then why should anyone take your complaint seriously (I'm not talking legal matters, merely in terms of audience sympathy)? If you approach your bile half-heartedly, why shouldn't I expect your outrage to be similar?

ps: You star in a #twitterfoundpoem
pps: If you delete this message, I will post it on my site, link it on twitter, facebook & basically evade your censorship efforts. I despise those who pretend to solicit comments, but then delete them. Only Stalinists want to build Potemkin villages.

The #twitterfoundpoem in question:

It's Personnel [Today's News Poem, October 13, 2010]

It's Personnel [Today's News Poem, October 13, 2010]

Personnel is personless,
Purseful and purposeless—

And never personal. It never

Was about you. Disappear,

Yourself as stitches or suturing...

You: persona mannequin,
Voodoo of nervousness:

Unspool a while. If the tethering

Is what's burning pockets then
Tighten your money-belt.

Remember: nothing is personal.

"Coming into their final debate of the California governor's race, Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman had a chance to persuade a statewide audience they could turn around the economically troubled state. Instead, their third face-to-face exchange resorted to many of the personal attacks that have dominated the last few weeks of the campaign."

Remember the Shadow [#twitterfoundpoem, October 13, 2010]

Remember the Shadow [#twitterfoundpoem, October 13, 2010]

I need to get some halloween things for my house
and i forgot to make the shadow
that Samhain taught me last friday?
i think i'll be ok
but how can i fight competing unicorn-lovers,
when i forgot Supernatural Knowledge?
I admit I thought halloween was going to be Wednesday, October 13
like a palindrome.
I don't want to have to fight the Lords of Shadows, Samhain,
a hunchback, and This new Priest.
I need to get some halloween things for my Afro Celt Sound System house,
some magic mushrooms, and figure out
how to make the shadow!
