Politico’s Roger Simon and Epic Fail

November 3, 2012

I don’t care if Politico wants to give  their writers opinion bylines. But if they’re going to use them to write dime store novels, they should consider reducing their salary to a dime a year. One wouldn’t think Politico would need such vapid filler just days out from the 2012 election.

Obama should have been destroyed by now. That was the plan.

He was going to be “Swift Boated” in this election, just like John Kerry was in 2004.

Evidently they do – need filler, I mean.

    I find Politico almost unreadable; it’s maybe one notch above a gossip rag. I almost never click over to their articles.

    Every story seems to start with some clever, controversial theory to explain some political players’ strategy, tactics, actions, statements, whatever.

    Then they interview a couple anonymous sources to get a couple quotes to act as tent poles for the theory.

    Then they throw the story onto the internet like chum. MSNBC always comes swimming up for a bite.

    Roger Simon sucks epic ass.

    Boy, somebody is confused!

    How do you Swiftboat a guy who never served, and has no brother officers who knew him and found him a hallow, self-promoting, narcissistic jackpole and liar?

    And how do you create a false narrative out of the truth of Benghazi? I mean, as reported by the guys who were on the ground, and not some leakers in the regime?

    Is “Swiftboating” a bad thing? Telling the truth about someone who aspires to be President, and comes close to doing so, seems to be an admirable deed to me. Would that more truth-telling had been done about Mr. Obama in 2008.

    Well, Simon’s only academic credential is a BA in English, so maybe this is a first draft for a short story.

    Oh wait, Simon is supposed to be a journalist? HA HA HA HA HA HA
