Wingnuts Furious Media Ignored Huge Crowds at Romney Rallies That Are Actually Obama Rallies

News

Matt Barber is an asshole, that is not "news." He tweeted the above famous photo of a Portland rally (which at the time, we recall, some Foxers claimed the huge crowds had turned out not for Obama butfor The Decemberists) and was quite miffed that the media is ignoring these huge, er, Romney rallies? The good folks at Good As You noted this, and Barber was forced most unwillingly to change his complaint from "media ignoring giant Romney rallies" to "now Obama's rallies are so small!" But Barber seems to have gotten his ridiculously bad information from the crazy person after the jump.


"Maggie" is a poll truther.

Can't read the crazy?

Obama Packed 18,000 Into Area Holding 5,000 – Just Kidding – The Media Lied

Actually, the venue holding only 5,000 was almost full, but stories put out by the Wall Street Journal, Politico and the AP said 13,000 stood outside in a drizzling rain, and they knew it was so because the Obama campaign told them it was so. No one counted. No one took a pic. None of the “media” eyeballed it. No evidence at all.

Here’s a crowd – Romney Ryan 2012 in Ohio – in August 2012 – before anyone was paying attention!

What is Maggie's evidence for the media's lie? Oh, none. Except the "Romney rally" picture above. Which, again, is a picture of an Obama rally in Portland in 2008. Jesus.

Who are the people who sit around and paste Romney's name on Obama rally pictures, and painstakingly go through email forwards of actual stupid Dan Quayle quotes and change them so they say Al Gore? Are they Americans for Prosperity interns doing the usual intern scut work before AFP or Crossroads or whatever sends their Disinformation campaigns into the tubes? We are going to assume, "probably."

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
