Remember Jeff Gannon?

I’d almost forgotten, myself. But look, Gannon shows up in the virtual flesh at Denialism to try and defend his record.

Trust me on this, Jeff. You want us to forget your sleazy softball approach to fake journalism. You aren’t helping yourself by reminding us.

    That can’t be the real one (the one who occasionally entered the White House twice in a row without leaving in between, and who occasionally left the White House twice in a row without entering in between… so say the records). At least I want to assume that a reporter and National Press Club member would show a little bit of objectivity, wouldn’t erratically switch between referring to himself in the 3rd and the 1st person, and would know how to spell ad nauseam (which is derived from nausea).

    But the whole affair is deeply ridiculous in any case.

    LOL! Found in the Denialism Blog thread:

    [disemvowelled for spamming advertisement of book by creepy fake reporter/male escort]

    That’s the book “Th Grt Md Wr” mentioned above.

    There are several more fun comments over there, including gems like:

    The tags attached to the dipshite’s book over at Amazon include “as balanced as fox news”, “bird vomit”, “creative writing”, “fantasy”, “horrible”, “lying”, “right-wing rage”, and “throbbing gristle”.

    Once I’ve figured that out I guess I can figure out why both this book and Hubbard’s odious _Dianetics_ are tagged with `bird vomit’.)

    hey, chicks dig bird vomit.

    really, they just eat it up.

    *whew*

    I was afraid it might go down the wrong way with the non ornitohologically oriented, and I sure didn’t want to have to explain it.

    :P

    Hmmmm. That’s registered to “Jeff Gannon” and not to “James Guckert”. Did he officially change his name? If not, is it really registered to him…?

    What he was doing there during those times has never been accounted for.

    oh, i think the recent history of rethuglican “outings” has made it quite clear what a male prostitute was doing there.

    teaching them how to stand wide and toe-tap, of course.

    :P
