Shorter Holland’s Opus

November 29, 2011

If pretend journalists only reported on pretend news, would we then only know what we’re supposed to know?

Who knows!

Which brings us to Jonathan Chait Joshua Holland.  In the many years that I’ve been wallowing in the mire, Josh’s name has never come up.

If blog hits and progressive readership are to be compared, well then I think we know why Josh left some hair here.  Josh is huge on Democratic Underground…which is saying more than needs to be said.

Some of my favorite V-Lens comments have come from the Teabagging Jihadists and their Border Patrol agent friends.  Now Josh has overtaken the top spot…unless maybe, Celine Dion can be convinced to stop by?

Pretend journalists of the glorious Homeland.  You can’t be Patriot Acted without them and you sure as hell can’t depend on them to read Glenn Greenwald.  Which as many a Democratic Underground member will agree, reading anything Glenn Greenwald writes…well, we might as well not have a Constitution.

Yes, yes.  We might as well not.

    I’ve never written anything on DU, my dim friend — they grab stuff from sites like AlterNet, where I’ve been on staff for 6 years, without our knowledge.

    You say you’ve been doing this for a while, hunh?

      No shit?

      Now you’ve written here twice.

      You’ve become a sad parody of yourself. Kind of like George Nethercutt, or Arrested Development.

      Try harder.

    Your still countin’ me in the 47, aren’t you, lens?
    The bulldog is no more, but I’m still occupyin’, votin’, and trimming all the new shrubs that appear on my property every time I write my congressman. It ain’t much, but it’s something.

      Damn it barman!, not another of my old favorite beer joints? I do hear good things about Jones Radiator?

      You’re still in the 47, but make room for my progressive California readers too. Them and Janet, make for quite a mixed bag of fans.

      Good to hear from you, Spokane is still on my list of places to “reconquer”, just been slowed down a bit by the BushBama depression.

        I hope there’s something left for you, once the job creators are through with us. Our press has left us with a vast wasteland to occupy, and their owners are offering early retirement to the remains. for a taste, try this

        on the upside, we have learned to jail racist bombers. And Jones, and a couple others, have the brews, but not mine.

        I’m still looking through your’s well focused.

          Ah the elections. Followed some of them over there, the mayor especially. Otto works in mysterious ways, and I bet he’s not done with the guilty yet…

          Thanks man, I’m still looking at expanding the lens “empire”, warts, pimples, photos and all!
