The Immaculate List

The Commissar has handily assembled authoritative statements from every major official at the DOJ denying a significant role in creating the list of axed Attorneys. It just appeared one day under their noses and then some mysterious, unexplained force compelled them to act on it. I tell you, that’s pretty spooky. If it weren’t for my doggone empiricism I would join them lest the List grow angry and smite me.

    When did Don Surber turn into a huge asshole?

    those of you who were at one time brain-damaged enough to read the “Family Circus” comic… remember when Mommy would ask Billy or Dolly who did this or who did that, and they’d always cry out, “Not Me!”

    And there was a little gremlin running around doing all the bad deeds, whose name plastered across his chest was, “Not Me”.

    That’s who did it. Not Me. If only we could subpoena that bastard…

    When he bought his 2005 Mustang convertible? Just speculating, that’s all.

    That’s who did it. Not Me.

    That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. It was I Dunno.

    The list kind of reminds me of the list in the second season of ROME (ok, and in real Roman history, whatever) where Octavian announces that the best thing to do is to have organized crime assassinate a bunch of influence peddlers, and then everybody just throws in the names of whoever they’re peeved at at the moment, just because as long as we’re talking about purging…

    From the days when he used to post here he always cam off as a huge asshole. Being a hardcore Bush apologist with thoughts of ‘nothing to see here’ running through your head has a tendency to do that to a person. The better question is, when did Don Surber stop being a huge asshole?

    Reply: He hasn’t.

    I didn’t think Surber was an asshole when he was posting here.

    Wrong, yeah, but not a huge dickwad like he is now. He’s unpleasant and unfunny and has basically devolved into a reactionary Hewitt/Goldstein/Malkin clone.

    Andrew-

    What I think of as an ‘asshole’ in this case is somebody who is so convinced of their intellectual superiority and rightness that they condescend anyone that doesn’t agree with them. Surber fit that category, like the majority of other now MIA conservatives on BJ. Those incapable of staring their own dogma in the face and admitting error. That is what makes an asshole. Surber always had that tendency, and I used to think John Cole had it, but man has he ever proven me wrong.

    Were I to think otherwise, I myself would be an asshole.

    When did people here start paying any attention to Don Surber?

    He’s just Darrell Light and always has been.

    I just thought of Surber as the sexist man on the internets.

    Love made me blind.

    As I’ve said before: this is the new Thomas Nast cartoon of the Tweed Ring. Meanwhile, the Decider announced at his press conference today that he thinks the US Attorneys investigation has been “drug out” too long. It’s like being governed by one of the Scraggs.

    Then you definitely missed his spittle-flecked rant from about a year ago when, clearly frustrated beyond belief at the continuing failure of the Deciderator’s minions to quell the violence in Iraq, he accused leftists and war opponents of secretly rejoicing at the increasingly bloody body count… because it made Bush look bad. (Damn, my jaw is clenched just thinking about it.)

    From the barrage of fuck yous he got for that one (mine included), I’d wager that a few other Balloon Juice denizens remember that li’l tantrum of his. Didn’t used to be an asshole? Begging to differ, friend…

    He was always an asshole, it’s just that he used to deny it. Now he’s a self-actualized asshole.
