That noted “used to be” that “never really was” is Charles Johnson, an intellectual coward who writes some of the most inane things, as Robert Stacy McCain notes
Yeah, a lot of readers are asking, “Charles Who?” But the dude actually used to be somebody, and now he’s reduced to playing silly Media Matters/Crooks & Liars “gotcha” games with blog commenters:
Oh, that silly CJ!. How silly to point his finger at Right Wing Lynch Mobs! I mean come on, has he not seen how the Left reacts to any Conservative who dares speak his or her mind? Talk about lynch mobs! And, I must point out here that I never demanded Bashir be fired. Frankly, losing him means I am losing one of my favorite Trees of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit. So, did I want him fired? Or Alec Baldwin fired? No, I mean those two are constant sources of blogging material. Now I will have to work HARDER to get blogging material. Plus I am not a big fan of people losing their gigs every time they “offend someone”. Especially since the folks getting 86ed are usually Conservatives. So, no, CJ I did not want Bashir, who is an even bigger douche than you, to get axed, and now I wonder where we will find a man with a terminal case of “Serious Face” as Bashir has to poke fun at? Oh well, One less moron to laugh at, unless they hire you there CJ. I bet you would be a vast source of blogging material.
Now there is one less reason to watch MSNBS. Really the only reason I ever watch is to see Tamron Hall, who has stolen my heart. I know she is likely a Liberal but, that face slays me.
