The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Charles Johnson-Grade Schadenfreude

In a followup to this childish impetulance, we have an amazing series of pwnages to chronicle:

* Robert Stacy McCain fires back with documentary-grade coverage of the whole episode. I hear it'll be titled "In the Pony-Tail of Madness." Paging Sam Neill...

* Vinnie lays on a downright fine layer of snark. (his rebuttal for #1 will live in infamy, I'm sure)

* Ace o'Spades compares Charles to the waterboy who offers to help the old football team out in extracurricular ways. And then lays down the ULTRA-smack by comparing Johnson to Keith Olbermann... Zing!

And finally,

* Carl in Jerusalem expresses his somber thoughts on "denialism," which is definitely not a river in Egypt (though I do hear it's pretty popular there).

Me? I'd be glad to stand by what I wrote earlier, but I'll add that it's truly a sad day when someone who used to be so fervently and loudly "anti-idiotarian" so proudly aligns himself with Markos Moulitsas "Screw them!" Zuniga.

(But hey, a full chronicle from Snapped Shot's perspective can be found here and here, if you really want to relive the past few months.)

Update: I should've known that the great Jules Crittenden would have something to say about this. In this case, Jules lays it out nice and easy with respect to exposing the "crazy hater" side of any given political party.

And now, the roundup: Legal Insurrection suggests that Johnson might just be Jonesing for attention, Dan Riehl calls it Meltdown Part Deux, and the good Robert Spencer points out that the New York Times is supremely interested in LGF's final transition.

Isn't it funny how the press always seems to be interested whenever someone migrates from Right to Left? David Brock, Jim Jeffords, and now Charles Johnson, Victims of the Conservative Machine, all of them.

If the press were any more transparent, they'd be water-soluble.

More roundup: Wake Up, America and Moonbattery, Right Wing Nuthouse.

BTW, still no link here from Memeorandum. Maybe I have finally convinced The Machine to hate me?

I love Charles explanation for why he is "no longer on the right"...(chuckle)

4. Support for anti-science bad craziness (see: creationism, climate change denialism, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, James Inhofe, etc.)

Really?  Sarah Palin is anti-science crazy?  Has she ever even talked about science?  I thought she was just a dumb blonde to not be taken seriously?  And I love how he plops creationism in with anti-science.   Well.  DUH!!!  Creationism predates science and all science ever does is try to explain creationism.

5. Support for homophobic bigotry (see: Sarah Palin, Dobson, the entire religious right, etc.)

Palin and Dobson singled out as being homophobic.  Lovely.  Again, has Palin ever spoken out on these issues?  Is she even considered to be on the religious right?  And as for me, there is only one side to religion.  the Bibles.  We are all just trying to make our lives fit in with what the Bible demands.

6. Support for anti-government lunacy (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

Tea Parties were anti-government lunacy.  Fox News is anti-government.  Wow charles.  Talk about your lunacy.

8. A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech (see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

"RAGING" hate speech.  Care to show me where charles?  Where on AoS or HA there is massive hate speech by the authors?  Give us time and I am sure we can find something of raging hate speech on Huffington Post.

9. Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide (see: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, etc.)

Here he is on his favorite bent.  Dang charles... who's the denier here now?  I guess proof beyond a resonable doubt means nothing to you, the true scientist.

10. Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax,

Racism.  Fox News being anti-government is now racist towards the president.  Interesting.  Wouldn't that constitute a hate-crime and a danger to the government?  Wouldn't that also mean that people would stop watching it, and not make it the number one show in the USA news market?  Oh wait.  but it is the #1 news show.  Wonder what that means!?!?

And who is promoting hate here, charles?  The tea party movement was about hating Obama because he was black?  So, does that mean then that the original tea party members were BLACK?  Because the king of england was white...... and..... the tea party movement was a protest against too many taxes... and..... yes, all about racism.  I can see it now.

And. Someone please tell me what the heck he means by ... "witch doctor pictures".  WTH!?!?

Charles.  You were and never could be part of the "right" movement.  You were and have never been considered a conservative.  You may have had some libertarian tendancies.  But in no way did you at one point in time profess any beliefs similar to the people  you chastised and slandered above.

There is not a "right" wing for you to leave.  You never left the CRAZY party from which you evolved out of (according to your own definition).

Your relevance has long since past.  Unfortunately your trick here of trying to get attention worked on our part.  However, it is always interesting to observe and point out the cute and interesting things primitives do.

Brian, don't forget Sen Arlen Specter.  Another person of greatness for whom the Conservative party left behind.
