Grinchwald’s Stocking Stuffer

It shouldn’t surprise me the lengths that Greenwald will go to distort what people say in order to lambaste his enemies, but his Christmas offering really takes the figgy pudding.

Mike Huckabee’s Christmas ad — like everything Huckabee does — provoked all sorts of vehement, angry, un-Christmas-like attacks from Republican pundits. The GOP establishment almost uniformly […]

“Constitutional Scholar” Follies

Noted constitutional scholar, conspiracy theorist, sock puppet and all around frustrated guy, Glenn Greenwald, has a melt down over the spinelessness of the Democratic majority. Not to disagree with him, I agree they are spineless, but this little diatribe is profoundly silly.
First of all, if the Democrats had a spine Mukasey would have been confirmed […]

More Greenwaldean Nonsense

It’s almost too easy.
McQ ably tackles Greenwald’s attempt to play dumb as to how Judge Mukasey could be confirmed by the Senate without having to face a Democratic filibuster.
Every time Congressional Democrats failed this year to stop the Bush administration (i.e., every time they “tried”), the excuse they gave was that they “need […]

The Politics of Bad Faith II

I have been meaning to address the issue of Sullivan and other’s latest attack on Glenn Reynold’s. I intended it to be a follow up to The Politics of Bad Faith, and I may still have more to say on that, especially Jim Henley’s comment “In a corrupt political discourse, no label is much use.” […]

Defense & The War

Infamous mercenary Tim Spicer, who runs the infamous paramilitary organization Aegis (née Sandline) might take over Blackwater’s contract. This is because all State Department convoys are being placed under DoD command, and Aegis runs the Regional Operations Centers that would handle this coordination. Given horrors like Spicer’s attempted coup […]

Footwear Follies — A Continuing Saga

The hits just keep on rollin’. It seems that the Boi from Brazil (you know the one who wrote that outstanding bestseller “How Would A Patriot Act?” — apparently they move to another country) has noticed little ole us in his latest diatribe. Take it away Glenn!:
For those reasons [the ones detailed in […]

Oy - of mice and men

How can anyone read Glenn Greenwald prattling on about how picked on he feels by the VRWC?? And remain so slavishly loyal to him as to defend his own behavior.
If his point is the supposed politicization of the military, then he’s certainly getting off the track by making the issue about Boylan and his […]

Poor, Poor Pitifull Me

Gleenwald sure is going to a lot of trouble to play the victim…
His latest update on the possibility that a member of the US Military is not treating him with all the respect due to a member of the professional press (aside: I thought bloggers were all a bunch of pajama’s wearing cretins?)
On a different […]

The Great Sock Puppet is hunting IP’s- We have been noticed by the Greenwald fan club! Updated 10:30 PM CST 10/29

I was over at Patterico’s this evening and what do I see?

I swear I’m not making this up:
If you are well-versed in analyzing IP addresses, email headers and the like, please email me (
If you don’t get the irony, you must not have read this.
Of course for those who chuckle over the paranoid conspiracy theorists […]

Unfounded Belief versus Tin Foil Hats

Glenn Greenwald is shocked, shocked I tell you, that:
The NYT/CBS poll yesterday revealed that 40% of Republicans in this country — 40% — still believe that Saddam personally planned the 9/11 attacks.
Heh, well unfounded beliefs run all over the place don’t they. Here are the numbers:




The Crucifixion of Petraeus

McQ beat me to it on the campaign to discredit General Petraeus as an Bush administration hack. This is doubly ironic considering Petraeus’ long standing and cogent criticism of the way the war was being fought. A man so devoted to changing things he bucked traditional combat doctrine and pushed hard, with career risk involved, […]

A Study in Pettiness

Take up your arms, sons and daughters
We will arise from the bunkers
By land, by sea, by dirigible
We’ll leave our tracks untraceable now
- Sons and Daughters, The Decemberists
I see that our dear friend Mona is once again firing shots across our bow. A few weeks ago she tried to (apparently) goad me into an argument, […]

A New Submission to the Greenwald Carnival of Fisking

Instapundit readers welcome! If you haven’t been here in a while look around. New format, additional authors, feeds to other great sites. Tons of stuff. Poke around and drop us a line.
From one of the great practitioners of the art of unraveling Sock Puppets (second only to me) Patterico:
The sky is blue, time is still […]

New addition to the Greenwald Carnival of Fisking

And it is from me, and this post is it.
A while back Cliff May asked a question:
I noticed Rangel uses what has become a frequent talking point of the left: that in the last election the voters sent the message “Get out of Iraq.”
Is there a shred of evidence for that? Yes, plenty of voters […]

Don’t Trust National Journalists???

Hmmm, I think someone needs to look in the mirror, considering that, with a regular gig at a nationwide e-magazine, someone became a “national journalist.”
In response to my central point — that a story of this magnitude and potential impact should not be passed on without at least some information enabling an assessment of […]

The Cancer Within (UPDATED)

Via Patterico I see that the bad news visited upon Tony Snow is generating an unexceptional response at HuffPo:
I hear about Tony Snow and say to myself, well, stand up every day, lie to the American people at the behest of your dictator-esque boss and well, how could a cancer NOT grow in you. Work […]

New Submissions for our ongoing Glenn Greenwald Carnival

I am adding them to our archives. First From Jeff GoldStein (who has a number of posts that I will need to track down unless he were to generously do the research for me?) we have:
Greenwald(s):  “We are not the haters.  YOU HATERS are the HATERS!”

The fact that Greenwald(s) right here is arguing that the […]

Ann Coulter and Little Greenwald’s Footballs: Revised as a Carnival of Fisking -New Submissions 3:45 PM CST, March 4th

Cassandra at Villainous Company (hat tip McQ) has pointed out the ever present hypocrisy and mendaciousness of Glenn Greenwald and hits a point I have made several times in the last few hours, which is that he and Ann Coulter are at bottom quite similar:
