Parotting the Talking Points

A week or so back, on Dump Bachmann, I mentioned Mitch Berg's habit of Parroting talking points.

Illustration by Avidor.

As is his wont, Mitch Berg stomped on over:

"Blogger Berg seems rather defensive about being called on the regular parrotting of talking points on his blog."

Called, huh-wha?

For starters, it was a criticism of leftyblogs in general - not just your fatuous blathering.

But since you brought it up, please show us how I "parrot talking points", if you don't mind.

You can't, of course - you're just whoring for traffic - but try anyway.

Well Michael Brodkorb the Drama Queen wrote up the talking points, and fed them to the Parrots in the MOB. Mitch Berg acted like a dutiful Parrot.

Over on his comment thread, there are several people impersonating me.

Polly wanna cracker?

THAT took you a week to put together?


I will crush it at my leisure.

And quit posting off-topic comments, would you please? You are ethically vacant - that's a given - but are you stupid as well?

It didn't take me a week to put together. It just took a few minutes. I just had other priorities. It was a big news week.

Why didn't anyone report that I discovered Mitch's identity ages ago?

Like, gaw-hawd. I'm SO unnoticed.

C'mon guys: Read my blog. Everyone does. Just look at my site meter that I artificially add on to daily by hitting my refresh button.

None of these three posts over on Whine in the Dark were written by me.
