That's from Thursday. I love that comic.
Regarding Wednesday's post, Sunny saw an e-mail -- Actually she saw two. The other one? Doesn't interest me. I'll never read it and I'll never respond to it. Bob Somerby's sick drunken friend can go f**k himself. That's all I have to say.
The e-mail I am noting asked if it was fair to Bob, my post?
This is a journal. I'm not a reporter. This is a personal journal.
I do not try to pretend detachment.
This is what I feel when I feel it.
Reading Bob Somerby on Wednesday finally making points about Ed Schultz that Ava and C.I. had the guts to tackle April 3rd ["TV: Extreme Makeover (Horror Edition)"] and seeing how he made a point to ignore the Sunday news until Wednesday?
That's not a game Ava and C.I. didn't play. They didn't pretend they had just that day received an 'immediate' jury duty notice to stall for time. They didn't wait for the media to take a position or for public opinion to gell. They didn't care about being safe. Sunday nights, within 15 minutes of Barack finishing that speech, Ava and C.I.'s "TV: Blather" went up.
So I am reading his Wednesday piece and seeing him make observations Ava and C.I. had the guts to make some time ago while Somerby was silent and I'm seeing him use criticisms that C.I.'s pretty much trademarked and I'm not impressed.
As I mentioned in passing, in that post, I'm pretty damn sick of him anyway.
C.I.'s not going to read it and has no interest in it, but Bob Somerby's drunken friend popped back up with another one of his crazed and hateful e-mails.
C.I. didn't read it and doesn't plan to. That's her right. But I have read it (Jim forwarded it to me) and I'm sick of it, I'm sick of Bob Somerby. He should have long ago told his sick f**k friend that these e-mails weren't helpful to him (Somerby) and didn't reflect well on him. He should have told his disgusting friend that six years of this crap is more than enough.
Bob Somerby's a little bitch. That's all he is. That's all he'll ever be.
He's a little coward who waits for others to take the brave stands and then he mimics when it's safe. Ava and C.I. are leaders. Somerby's a camp follower.
I usually keep my (low) opinion of him to myself. But his drunken friend has now spent how many years attacking Rebecca and C.I.? It reflects on him. He and his loser buddy due their little road trips together and that reflects on him as much as the vile and disgusting and sexist e-mails his friend writes.
