    Have to give Goldstein some credit here. We’d all forgotten about him. But he has managed to inject himself back into the high levels of wingnuttery with aplomb.

  2. Gus:

    I worry about him. He is armed and has a history of mental illness.

  3. MacCheerful:

    The comment thread there is a thing of wonder. The prevailing theory is that in a town where there hasn’t been a murder in 10 years the teachers and principal of the school should have been armed.

  4. Thers:

    Goldstein who? Never heard of the fellow.

    you, sir, are awesome.

  7. DocAmazing:

    Kenneth Gladney died was inconvenienced for your sins.

  8. Thers:


    This, maybe?

  9. swearyanthony:

    I have known 2 year old children with more self-awareness and empathy than Glodstein.

    Remember folks: an armed kindergarten is a polite kindergarten.

  10. swearyanthony:

    Oh and if you want to see another example of sociopathy, instafuckwit is currently running in circles claiming victory. “Heh. Homeschooling. Heh.”

    Oh, I know the history. Whenever I feel like his behavior toward me as a commenter on his blog was poor, I can always remember what he did to you. What a terrible, little sick man he is.

  13. thebewilderness:

    Does he seriously expect the President to address the assault on a union member by a Fox News representative at the Michigan demonstration? Cuz that would be awesome!

  14. Snarki, child of Loki:

    Well, the second point would have fixed the first point.

  15. Sev:

    Well, it can get noisy for a while, then much quieter

  16. Carol:

    it is a interesting that the only person wounded in the so-called union thuggery was a right wing provocateur who got a booboo on his forehead and refuses to prosecute. And this mysterious booboo is the same horror as 26 dead people.

    Reading the commentary in that blog makes a person ill.

  17. rea:

    Mocking him on a comment thread always makes me feel a bit like an 18th Century gentleman visiting Bedlam, poking an inmate with a stick . . .

  18. mark f:

    Doesn’t he have a rather time consuming job and several 24/7 hobbies? I suspect is commitment to home schooling is as principled as his opposition to public employment.

  19. cpinva:

    not even going to read it. i’ve about had my fill of rightwing fuckwits for a lifetime, possibly several lifetimes. i keep hoping they’ll decide to show us just how well that “everyone should be armed to the teeth, then shit like this wouldn’t happen.” would work, by pointing one of their many weapons at themselves, and pulling the trigger.

    sure, it would be messy, but the country’s oversupply of stupid would be immediately culled. that could only be a good thing.

    i’m sorry, that’s probably overly harsh (ok, no, it isn’t), but i am just absolutely ill, and enraged right now. as probably every parent in america is doing, all i keep thinking is “there, but for the grace of (insert your favorite invisible deity here) go i…………”.

    Normally I can read those comment threads with a detached amusement, even when they are spewing their toxic waste on race and gender relations. I just assume that they’re hopeless losers who need to a safe place to rant so that they don’t irritate their coworkers who clearly don’t deserve to have to listen to that sort of thing. With this, they have started gloating about dead kindergartners, which puts me in a blind HULK SMASH kind of rage.

    Coming soon, to America – a new school morning ritual:
    “Did you make my sandwich, Ma”
    ‘Yes dear.’
    “Did you load my gun?”
    ‘Yes dear. It’s in your holster on your kitchen chair, ready for you to strap on.’
    “Thanks, Ma!”
    ‘Son, before you go, remember The Three S’s.’
    “I know them, Ma!”
    ‘Ok, then recite them to me.’
    “Oh Mom…”
    ‘Don’t ‘Oh Mom,’ me, young man. Recite The Three S’s for me!’

    “Ok, here goes:
    Study hard,
    Stay safe, and
    Shoot straight. Now can I go?”

    ‘YeSSS dear.’

  23. Julian:

    Is Goldstein widely read or something? Why is he an important example of wankery?

  24. sparks:

    Ye gods, I was there under one of my many pseudonyms*. Retardo/Mencken took him apart good for that. There’s a reason I called Godlstein “cockslapper” or variants thereof ever since. It defined his penile obsession and inadequacy. Same with Trevino and his childish Star Wars obsession. They were loathsome people then, and I do not believe they have changed.

    * Which was a tip of the silk hat to Raymond Griffith’s character in Paths To Paradise.

  25. Semanticleo:

    Goldbrick’s problem is guilt over being a kept man. He’s a stay home Dad who changes diapers while scrubbing his hard drive. Not that changing diapers isn’t a worthwhile vocation, but I think he needs fresh air. He came close to publishing once, but found that porn really doesn’t need dialogue.

  26. Scott Lemieux:

    You have confused “important” with “grimly hilarious.” But he was a pretty big muckety-muck on the right blogosphere for 5 seconds or so, until Michelle Malkin did to him what Stalinist academics did to J. Otto Pohl — just ask him.

  27. Eli Rabett:

    Go for the gold, a nuclear Iraq makes for a courteous world.

  28. R. Porrofatto:

    It’s a shame, really. Underneath his Narcissistic and Many Other Personality Disorders, he seems like a bright guy. Which makes it all the more scary when he decided to become a gun nut that he didn’t just buy a pistol for protection, he went straight to Full Metal Asshole, arming the entire family with high-velocity tactical weaponry, scopes, lasers, and enough jargon to annotate a Gander Mountain weekly circular.

  30. timb:

    Actually, please do, because his persecution fantasies are wonderfully hilarious

  31. timb:

    He does not like you very much, cleo

  32. timb:

    and, then cleaning the guns on the front porch while glaring at the neighbor across the street, among whose many sin was calling the cops with the tiny, angry man across the street started cleaning guns on his front porch and glaring at them. He forget to tell us if he made bang, bang motions with his index finger.

    If he weren’t a spineless twit, he might be dangerous

  33. Semanticleo:

    Heh. Deb Frisch spooked him handily.

    Where were you….lurking?
