Well, We Called That

Me, last week, discussing the Larry Sinclair arrest at the National Press Club:

Question: Who will be the first to claim that if you speak out against Obamessiah, you get arrested? The Free Republic or No Quarter?

Via Sullivan, this from NoQuarter (I refuse to link them):

Tonight political prisoner Larry Sinclair is spending his fourth night in the DC Jail, the victim of a Gestapo-style enemies’ list operation carried out just three blocks from the White House last Wednesday afternoon.

Like shooting fish in a barrel. And just because it is so awesome, let’s revisit the Reason recap:

It had been a difficult morning for Sinclair. The Politico’s Ben Smith published a short feature on Sinclair’s 27-year criminal record of fraud and petty crimes; Greta Van Susteren linked the story, and told viewers/readers why she has ignored him. “While the internet is a great communication and educational tool, it is also viral when it comes to smearing people,” she wrote, prompting commenters to call her a cover-up artist and an agent of Barack Obama. It got worse when Sinclair’s lawyer Montgomery Sibley—whose license is currently suspended in D.C. and Florida—showed up in a kilt and told reporters that his above-average endowment made slacks tight and uncomfortable. The Rev. James David Manning, who gained web celebrity in April for a YouTube’d sermon in which he called Obama a “long-legged mack daddy,” sat in the crowd of 50 or so with his family. He didn’t take questions.

That, much like Hunter S. Thompson’s Nixon Obit, never gets old.

    There’s a thread on this over at MyDD. I saw this quote in the comments:

    Among other oddities, the press conference featured Sinclair’s dibarred lawyer, Montgomery Blair Sibley, who informed those assembled that his preferences in dress were arrived at as a way to secure comfort for his unusually large scrotum. “I don’t know why men wear pants,” he said with a poker face. “It’s a function of male genitalia. If you’re size normal or smaller, you’re probably comfortable with [pants]. … Those at the other end of the spectrum find them quite confining.”

    In attendance was Will Bower, founder of PUMA. “I think its worth exploring,” Bower mused.

    I watched Mother Night, based on one of my favorite Vonnegut novels, and with Nick Nolte, the other night. If you’ve read or seen it, Sinclair and his lawyer would have fit right in with the American Nazis who save Howard Campbell. Too fucking hilarious. I wonder if he wears the kilt in courtrooms. “I’m sorry, Your Honor, I have to cuz my dick’s so big.” Fuck.

    I fully expect them to go after Oregon statehood sometime soon. After all, we were one of the last to vote for the MUP. But Crazy Susan lives in Washington state, and she’s going to have to disenfranchise herself first. The early polling shows Washington leaning toward the MUP by a much higher margin than Oregon.

    Huh, I can’t post at NQ either. Dang, the other Hillary deadender blogs require you to register, so no more mocking the nuts.

    So it’s not just me, then.

    I commented on the Larry Sinclair saga, pointing out that the reporters at the presser thought he was full of shit and posted some quotes from the Telegraph to illustrate (on the details that matter, he was vague, on the details that didn’t matter, he demonstrated extraordinary recall, etc.) An hour later the comment was gone. I figured I must have popped a synapse and didn’t verify that the comment actually got posted, so I created a new one. An hour later, that one was gone too. I tried a third time.

    After that, I couldn’t submit comments anymore.

    And I swear to $DIETY, I wasn’t trolling; I was simply pointing out that some reporters were questioning the veracity of Sinclair’s statements. But God forbid you question the narrative; dissenting voices will not be heard.

    That’s part of why I think NQ is a true ratfuck operation; Flowbee was pimping Hills because that was the candidate the Goopers wanted, the one they were prepared for, and the one they felt confident they could manipulate either into losing outright or governing as a Republican Lite, and whipping Hillary’s real supporters into a psychotic froth is part of the plan.

    Barack Motherfucking HUSSEIN Obama scares the living hell out of them, which is why they’re throwing the kitchen sink at him (uppity bi-sexual drug-abusing Marxist Black Panther Terrorist Muslim Negro and his racist family and friends).

    I really don’t think NQ started out as a ratfucking organization. Larry started out as a friend of Valerie Plame Wilson’s, and he was really, really pissed off by that whole affair and the way the Wilsons were treated. NQ used to be a really good site for information on national security and military strategy and how the Bushies were screwing up that aspect of national life. He linked to a lot of interesting stuff I would otherwise have known nothing about Susan Hu/SusanUnPC came over from the GOS and she used to be pretty good as well. There was a really good community of people who posted there. They certainly had a right to pick Hillary as their candidate. But even before the start of the primary season, Susan started taking the attitude that all the candidates who weren’t Hillary were sleazebags and scum. By the time Edwards dropped out she allowed that he was a fine human being, but that was only to win over his supporters to Hill. After that point, the site became pretty much what it is now. One tabloid story after another on the villainy of Obama. Once in a while they still did one of Larry’s national security stories, but all the old commenters have run away. So Larry and Susan do more extreme stories and they attract more extreme whackjob commenters, and they let the whackjobs write stories, which they post . . . so pretty so they’re designing Hillary posters that show her as the Sun Goddess and they’re trying to prove that Obama isn’t eligible to run for President because Hawaii isn’t a state, etc.
