A Ridiculous Reader’s Reaction
Remember when the Morning Fishwrap published that letter from a reader who claimed he was constantly amazed at how many individuals disagreed with a politician by criticizing him or her with the harshest words they could imagine? Our Ridiculous Reader said referring to someone as “stupid,” “inept,” “dishonest,” or with other derogatory adjectives will not change the viewpoint of a strong supporter of that person. Facts (real facts), our Ridiculous Reader claimed, would sway the other side, but not name calling.
Was that guy nuts?
That’s just the kind of touchy-feely Rodney King “Can’t We All Get Along?” claptrap you’d expect the Feckless Femmes on Rick Green’s idiotorial board to publish. It’s no wonder The Fishwrap and our local Society of Unprofessional Journalists still can’t understand why so many of their Dumbed-Down, Self-Absorbed, Media-Influenced, Celebrity-Obsessed, Politically-Correct, Uninformed, Short-Attention-Span, Free-Stuff Grabbing, Low-Information Obama Voters Put Obama In The White House—Twice, and get all of their information from our Obama Supporters in the Press, who still subscribe to their lame-brained publication don’t understand the world around them.
You’ll never convince a Lying Liberal with facts (even “real” facts, as our Ridiculous Reader suggests). Just check out the Disingenuous DemocRATS in Congress. As soon as they read our Ridiculous Reader’s letter, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chucky Schumer, and all those Obama Supporters in the Press just keep on publishing bogus information to demoralize Republicans and continue to promote their Liberal Agenda during the next 123 Days of Dishonesty and Division for America remaining during the Dark Ages of Obama’s Second Term, unless the First Black President in History is impeached.
These days, discredited Mainstream Media are so far in the tank for Obama and Hillary, Gallup says trust and confidence in the US media to report the news “fully, accurately, and fairly” sank to a new low this year. 32% of Americans surveyed said they had a great deal or fair amount of trust and confidence in the media, while 27%—the highest share since Gallup began polling on the issue in 1972—said they had none at all. The Blower wonders how those ratings have fallen since you no longer get to read all those lies and distortions online in The Fishwrap for free.
But attack ads and negative campaigning work. They always have, and you’re nothing but a poor deluded dunce if you think people will ever change. Taking the high road in politics gets you nowhere. Just look how far Bush 41’s “kinder, gentler” approach got him. Better he should’ve used “1,000 Points of Spite.”
In 2012 Obama Supporters spent hundreds of millions of dollars lying about Mitt Romney on TV, and Friends of Ohio’s Disingenuous DemocRAT U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown used millions of somebody else’s money to call his opponent Josh Mandel “the most dishonest candidate in the country.” But our Mendacious Media never seem to mind. Political Advertising is always “Cash in Advance.”
These days, every politician in America has been celebrating ever since Liberal Whacko Judge Tim Black ruled in favor of COAST’s Avaricious Attorney Chris Finney’s case to allow those same politicians the “Right to Lie” during political campaigns. And since Lying During Political Campaigns is now 100% legal, Finney’s Fibbers will be Falsifying in Full Force Forever.
Doesn’t anybody remember that little taste of negative advertising we got in the 2013 Cincinnati Mayor’s race? It’s a good thing we got some rain that fall, or there never would have been enough mud for Disguised DemocRAT John Cranley and Extremely Liberal DemocRAT Foxy Roxy Qualls to sling at each other during the last seven weeks of that campaign.
Take Foxy Roxy’s nasty little ad showing Cranley leaving City Hall with a wheelbarrow full of money, stealing a dollar from a little kid in a stroller, and having a dog piss on his campaign sign.
The next day, Cranley slung a little mud of his own with an ad accusing Foxy Roxy of “false ads and bad ideas.”
REMEMBERING THE 2014 CAMPAIGN: There was no need to worry about negative advertising that year, because Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo reported in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate Race, Alison Wondergams Grimes and Bitch McConnell had already picked up their pace. That year, Alison said, “The reason my campaign keeps hounding Dumbed-Down DemocRATS for Donations is to raise money to tell lies about Mitch McConnell for telling the Truth about me.” The next day, her campaign released this video.
The next day, McConnell returned the favor in a big way.
And don’t get us started on all that 2016 Campaign Mudslinging. There’ll be plenty of time for that during Trump’s Transition.
So let’s face it, folks: Whistleblower Subscribers really want to hear their stupid, inept, and dishonest politicians criticized in the harshest possible terms. They want us to call a spade a spade, a lying bitch a lying bitch, a corrupt political party boss corrupt, and a masturbating trustee a masturbating trustee. They love the derogatory nicknames we give people. Our Persons of Consequence also wanted us to question why the Clermont County Republican Central Committee removed Republican Governor John Kasich’s name from their sample ballot, even though the Columbus Dispatch had just endorsed him.
You bet! Today there are only 50 more days till the 2016 Elections, and as the official publication of record for all that political scrambling, speculation, mud-slinging, and back-stabbing in the Tri-state, our readers expect nothing less.
Because unlike Fishwrap bloggers, who pretend to care about maintaining a dose of civility, The Blower might still contain unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, vulgar, pornographic, profane, or indecent information. Everything we write doesn’t have to be so mean-spirited. It’s just so much more fun that way!
Hurley the Historian says this month in 1814, Francis Scott Key watched the rockets’ red glare in the skies above Fort McHenry in Maryland and America’s greatest hit was born. It’s too bad most Americans these days including both Obamas can’t remember all the words without a teleprompter.
Now it’s time to reaffirm Our Beloved Whistleblower Motto (Let’s all say it together): “Because wherever there’s corruption, we’ll be there. Wherever there’s injustice, we’ll be there. And wherever there’s a bunch of big guys beating up on a little guy, we’ll be there too…holding the little guy down, and that goes double for Ridiculous Readers of The Fishwrap who don’t like it when people call stupid, inept, and dishonest politicians stupid, inept, and dishonest.”
