The Birther, the Truther, and the Frogger @ LGF: Charles Foster Kane Johnson Pwnd and Pied

In more ways than one?

An alternate graphic for LGF: Some bouncing Little Green Pills. (Clozaril is an anti-psychotic medication.)

I started to worry about Charles when the cascade of technical posts started. Every techy tweaks their code, but when they become obsessive they are in an infinite loop and need a break; followed by a long vacation.

Nearly all men can withstand adversity, but if you want to test a man, give him power--Abe

An interesting quote about power. The irony is of course that if you have a blog, even a very big blog, you have about as much power as a midge.

I can't stop watching the deterioration unfold. Ironic that he has become the Dan Rather of the blogosphere, just as Dan Rather became the Richard Nixon of journalism.

By the way, using Charles the Queeg's insane moral logic, we could accuse him of anti-Semitism for linking to a book by Richard Dawkins.

One more point -- as you suggest, there are always thirty pieces of silver waiting for the conservative apostate who has "evolved."

Well, a storm of midges can be a frightfully powerful motivator.

Until last Tuesday I had not yet been officially banned from the lizard ranch. So I decided to remedy that situation. I logged in, and posted the whole 1200+ names on the banned list. Well, I tried anyway. It only fit up to the "E's". It took less than a minute for the monitors to nuke the post and my account.

I find his behavior sad and inexplicable. Like Andrew Sullivan, it was like watching someone get Alzheimer's - they were both fierce, cogent and determined to get the truth out.

Then they both went bat-squealing crazy.

I dumped Johnson -- who had been a regular read before -- when he started his jihad against creationism and intelligent design. While no great fan of either school of thought, his ignorance and superficiality of understanding of the deeper issues involved, a core mean-spiritedness, combined with the tedious sameness of post after post on the topic, soon relegated him to the binary dustbin of blogging history. Life is too short to waste time on such drivel.

I took him off my rss feed. He is happier and I am happier.
