Yes, Romper Roomies (Blogging Tories), I do mean you! Good Gawd, just how desperate are ya to not only keep the megalomaniac St-Stevie and his evangelical Harpercons in power, but to actually get him his majority? How low are y’all willing to sink to achieve this end. I mean you all laughed at our ‘weak’ opposition and about Iffy and so on, but they must be really strong if you’re all not only encouraging the Harpercons to cheat, which they have already proven quite proficient at, but you all have new ways of accomplishing that end.
Nowadays, they are all pissing all over each other, really showing their true colours, little by little. It seems that they’re bursting at the seems and they can no longer hide their true contemptable feelings that even contradict neo-con values.
The Romper Roomies like BC Blue, Adrian MacNair, Iceman have all been tripping all over themselves, turning themselves into pretzels even linking to Steve Ejankulator’s page (Thanks CC, I do like the name) as if it had the gospel truth as they have all oo-ing and aw-ing, and for what?? A three year old posting with links that either don’t work or are just commercial sites. One of those links I clicked on, my anti-virus popped up with warnings and froze my computer for a few minutes! Then again, maybe that is one of Ejankulator’s tactics? After everything I’ve been seeing and reading as of late, I really have to wonder. I’m not linking it, not worth it, given the links don’t work and such. If you must see it, go to BC Blue or to MacNair’s where links are all over the place. Just before you click one of those old links out of morbid curiosity, do make sure your anti-virus is up to date.
They’re all jumping on some bandwagon that we must ignore Professor Attaran because he “owes Iggy a favor” or that “Iggy saved his job”. I did quite a bit of research (outside of Blogging Tory posts) trying to find the Iggy / Attaran connection. After many searches, there was not much available: they did indeed cross paths and yes, they’ve even worked together at Harvard. So? Like any other sector, Academia is a small world, why wouldn’t university professors cross path?
Yes, Attaran had some kind of trouble or mishap about some funding for one of his programs at Harvard University’s Carr Center. However, as Dr Dawg of Dawg’s Blawg pointed out to me (thanks you for your assistance, Dawg!), this whole incident appears to be nothing more than some university bureaucratic snaffoo that pretty much anyone can run into. Hardly career ruining. Whether or not Iggy helped him through that is inmaterial. The professor has far better reasons to talk than about some little funding snaffoo that happened years ago. That whole so-called Iggy-saving-Professor Attaran’s-job thing is nothing more than a frenzied red-herring.
He’s not the only one talking torturegate, neither. Little by little, more and more are coming out talking that torturegate talk. My my, Stevie is really going to have no place to run. Whether or not Iacobucci tells St-Stevie what he and his Harpercons and cheerleaders over at Corporate media and yes, the ever increasingly Liberal and Islam Deranged Blogging Tories want to hear, it seems that it is not legally binding or viable, due to the fact that Mr Iaccobucci is no longer a sitting judge for any court.
That whole “National Security” thing simply doesn’t hold water anymore. If it were just one detainee or one minor indiscretion, as the Harpercon media and the Romper Roomies seem to insist, how does it relate to national security. If nothing happened, then the question becomes, “what national security”? What is there to hide?
In a previous post, I asked some questions of the Blogging tories and the other Harpercon cheerleaders. I asked for the real reason for all this pissing all over themselves, twisting themselves into pretzels as to why they are sooooo desperate to be soooo protective of St-Stevie and their desperation to keep the truth about torturegate buried?
Well? Which is it?
While I’m more inclined to believe that what Wendy “Girl on the Wrong” Sullivan said to be truthful and a fairly accurate representation of how these neo-con bigots really feel, there is another reason behind it.
After reading that idiotic comment of Mary T yesterday pretty much wishing for a St-Stevie totalitarian regime, Shrieking fools like Hunter who don’t like strong veteran reporters who ask tough questions (yes, Hunter, perhaps we prefer Brian Lilley who reports the news with such a blatantly obvious bias, folks like Kathy Shaidle who blatantly come out to say they hate poor people or that poor people are stupid and make bad choices, as well as other goodies Canadian Cynic blogged about today. One good good thing about the increasing instability of the Romper Roomies and other neo-cons, the truth invariably pops out; they can no longer help themselves.
For torturegate, Harpercon cheerleaders of all stripes, for the most part anyway, feel the exact same way Wendy Sullivan does.
In addition, as is with so many other issues of the day with St-Stevie and the Harpercons, they have this sick fixation, a dependence really on St-Stevie. How else do we explain their desperation to not only make sure St-Stevie stays PM, but that he does get his precious majority and save the day so to speak. They will do anything and yes, take dirty trick pages from the St-Stevie playbook in a manic attempt to make sure they achieve this end, no matter who gets hurt or what laws are broken.
It is obvious they’re not interested in gov’t transparency or accountibility for St-Stevie: that should only be reserved for Libruls, and the other opposition parties. Maybe the opposition is a little stronger than many would give them credit for these days? That would be the only viable explanation here.
If they were interested in an accountible and transparent government, they would be alongside everyone else, demanding all the torturegate documentation, unredacted documents. Regardless of whatever bigotry and hate they may have for Muslims, torturing or knowingly sending these detainees goes against the Geneva Convention. I thought neo-cons were a law and order type of folk; well, that should include their neo-con PM and international law.
If they’re sooooo sure there is nothing, all the more they should demand the unredacted Afghan detainee documents, if for no other reason than to prove those “looney lefties” wrong.
No, they have proven to not want the truth out and frankly, I think it’s time to lock up the knives and other sharp and flammable objects they can hurt themselves (and others) with. Yes, it must suck to live in paranoia, hate and mental illness indeed as the Romper Roomies, Harpercon Cheerleaders and other Neo-cons seem to be afflicted with these days.
Whatever happened to those Right of Center; those old Progressive Conservative supporters who follow a conservative ideology of government with transparency and accountability; a government that wouldn’t prorogue as a means to run away from their demons? A government that was fiscally responsible. A right of center fiscally responsible type of person who would be appalled at the idea of a finance minister spending thousands of their tax payer dollars to pay for a private plane on a flight that is probably not even an hour long. What happened to that Tory supporter who would generally applaud at a government that would lead by example?
It would seem that they still exist, but their voices are drowned out by the Fox News-y, Sarah Palin-esque tea-bagger types.
Romper Roomies, Harpercon cheerleaders: it must really suck to be you with all that hatred, paranoia and dilusision: how ever in the world do you do it?
