Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Generally, I don’t care to get into flame wars with other bloggers.

MERLIN:&#160 What about Mykki Chickenshit?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Exception to the rule.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 And Michael Crook?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Pussy extraordinaire.&#160 He deserved his&#160 beatdown.

KORRIOTH:&#160 And the dipshit over at Pillage Ain’t Chicken Pot Pie?

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 And…

VENOMOUS:&#160 Awright, all right&#160 already!!!&#160 I get&#160 it!



But when a blogger keeps playing Johnny One-Note on an issue, and I innocently ask a question to find out what’s going on, bring up a valid point or two – go out of my way to not be combative, in fact…

MERLIN:&#160 WTF?!

KORRIOTH:&#160 Who are you and what have you done with Lord Venomous?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Oh, pipe down.

…and I get a buttload of snark&#160 in return – well, you just know&#160 how that’s gonna set with me.

MERLIN:&#160 Now that’s&#160 more like it.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 Pass the popcorn, this is gonna be good.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Stewed gagh&#160 for me, if you don’t mind.

Awright.&#160 This all started back in October, when the American Conservatives Union, led by some jerkwad named Little Davey Pants David Keene, offered to back FedEx in a nasty legislative dispute involving the National Labor Relations Board and United Parcel Service.

For a small fee – say, two to three extra-large.&#160 (That’s “million” for those of you at the Church of the SubTarded.)

The initial letter, available here (Adobe Reader required), reads more like an offer to become sort of an advertising agency/marketing firm for FedEx in the dispute.&#160 Phone calls, radio/TV, the whole nine yards.&#160 FedEx, however, already in possession of its own corporate communications department, rightly spurned the offer.

Whereupon Little Davey Pants David Keene promptly signed off on a letter supporting UPS’ position.

Quite the mercenary, isn’t he?

This episode eventually cost former KFI radio host John Ziegler a spot at the Western CPAC convention when Little Davey Pants ol’ Keenie couldn’t be tasked to answer Ziegler’s questioning on the scandal.&#160 And, in part because of this, Sarah Palin opted to bypass the national CPAC convention this year in favor of a lesser-known Tea Partiers’ convention.&#160 For which, she earned the wrath of one Dan Riehl of the Riehl World View&#160 blog (located (for now) on the blogroll).

I’m hearing through sources Sarah Palin is getting $75k to speak at this Tea Party convention. Can anyone confirm that officially? That’s a lot of damned tea. (emphasis added -DV) The only acceptable rationale is this is not a grassroots event, as she claimed she wouldn’t charge tospeak at one of those. Has she ever done that?

I saw via the site they are asking local groups to pony up 10 or 20 bucks an individual to send in their “best” representative. It’ll cost them well over a grand altogether with hotel and such, more in many cases unless they drive.

Like I said, probably just another day in American politics.

Which, presumably, is a slap in the face of Sarah Palin, since most of us consider her to be more than just your average politician.&#160 (And in fact, not even a politician anymore, seeing as she’s no longer in public office.&#160 That, however, is another story for another post.)

Next:&#160 Part II
