William Hoge’s Downfall

William J. J. Hoge has a gigantic ego, so he couldn’t understand why his little Hogewash blog wasn’t getting any traffic. Even though he blogged about Brett Kimberlin, the bugaboo of the right wing Breitbart universe, Hoge just didn’t have the audience he felt he deserved. But then Hoge got into a pissing match with […]

Melissa Brewer Is Not Xenophon Gryllus

mccaintomatoes

Melissa Brewer @catsrimportant has been my friend for about a year and a half now. Readers may remember her post about being stalked and harassed by anti-abortion fanatics, including the execrable Jason Wade Taylor. A couple of months ago, the same fanatics convinced a group of right wing bloggers that she was Xenophon Gryllus of […]

Matchstick Man Endorses McCain’s Conspiracy Theory

paullemmen

According to his WikiPedia entry, Paul H. Lemmen (pictured) “is a military impostor and convicted criminal, specializing in fraud.” Lemmen was arrested at a military funeral in 2006 wearing general’s stars and an Air Force uniform. In fact, he was just a civilian with a penchant for self-inflation, fraud, bad checks, and embezzlement. Now blogging […]

Robert Stacy McCain Says That Liberals Are Terrible People

Can @Karoli Block the Entire Internet- - The Other McCain [Anonymoused]

Karoli is away from her blogging for jury duty at the moment, but her name has seen quite a bit of exposure at the blog of one Robert Stacy McCain in the last few days. I called her over the weekend and learned that McCain’s blog links are among the most commonly-shared items in the […]

The Voice of Seth Allen on the Liberal Grouch Podcast

liberalgrouch1

I have no idea how this will turn out. Apparently, someone has misinformed Bill Schmalfeldt that I am a “liberal blogging icon,” so he has invited me onto his half-hour podcast at 12 noon EST/11 AM CST today to talk about yesterday’s post on Seth Allen and LA Deputy District Attorney John Patrick Frey. Tune […]

Patterico’s Nuts

sethallen

Aaron Walker is a very bad lawyer, but he is also the blogging buddy of LA Deputy District Attorney John Patrick Frey. Walker inserted himself into a lawsuit that was none of his business and became East Blogistan’s chief martyr in its phony war against Brett Kimberlin. At the time, Kimberlin was suing a psychologically […]

East Blogistan Has Always Been At War With Kimberlinia

onedoesnotsimply

As the Breitbart.com blogger responsible for “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day,” Lee Stranahan has been a central figure in one of the weirdest nontroversies ever concocted by East Blogistan. If you haven’t heard this one, it supposes that an obscure liberal activist is somehow responsible for everything everyone has ever said on the internet […]

Breitbart’s Last War

randyzapem

So as I said all along, the right wing obsessives aren’t kidding when they tweet about #war and yap about “open war on Twitter.” And I was right to worry that Andrew Breitbart’s cultists would carry on the project in his name, but without his guidance. It turns out that before he died, the habitual […]

Lee Stranahan Calls the Police to Silence a Liberal, Fails

Actually, the Grouch called you a fraud, Lee -- which is actually kinda true.

Police arrived at the Maryland home of Liberal blogger Bill Schmalfeldt, aka The Liberal Grouch, last night just after he had finished posting a new fundraiser for Lee Stranahan’s dental work. Stranahan, who blogs for Breitbart.com, says Schmalfeldt “threatened” him by republishing address information that Stranahan had given him: The cops see old, trembly me […]
