Robo/Real Call Rebound...Why Do They Protesteth So Mucheth And So Fabulously?


I first noticed it from the first McMinister on the Twittmachine:

Which led to a little sniffing around the outer reaches of the Google cache until I found this bit of stinky cheese from the good and always oh so ethical Mr. Levant (hit link with caution):

There are 525,600 minutes in a year.

And there have been 3,581 news stories written about the Robocall scandal, according to the Infomart database.

Except last week, we found out it was fake. There was no conspiracy to use automated phone calls to dupe voters in the 2011 election into going to the wrong place to vote...

{snippety doo-dah}...

It’s the Canadian version of U.S. “Truthers," who claim the 9/11 attacks were an inside job, even after a massive, detailed investigation proved it was what we all saw it to be: an al-Qaida terrorist attack. Even when Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the attacks, that wasn’t enough to deter the most avid Truthers. Because they needed that conspiracy theory to make the world make sense to them...


Now once you stop shaking your head at that amazing bit of conflation...

Ask yourself the following...

Why are they bleating so loud and so hard (and absolutely fabulously) while they keep a light shining back on this thing?

Is it because they really and truly feel an overwhelming need to righteously dedisparage their collective disparagement?

Or is it because they see this an opening to demonize the opposition?


Is it really because they know that the brand is damaged?

On the brightside, I reckon, that Sun News generally, and perhaps the good, and always more ethical than we and thou, Mr. Levant specifially, can now start the public rehabilitation of this fine young fellow ....Maybe.

I think it's because they're assholes.

Dirty, stinky, ones.

Mr Levant spouts "truthiness".

Hadn't thought of that one.



And often, it would appear, in the most fabulist of ways.
