Fisking Greenwald (so I don’t have to)
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, February 21, 2007

Apparently Glenn Greenwald (aka the "Sock Puppet Master") is in his usual high dudgeon over remarks made by Britt Hume concerning Jack Murtha. Lance, at A Second Hand Conjecture does a masterful job of taking Greenwald's objections and argument apart.

Favorite line?
He needs to get out his darning needles though, because this sock's entire screed has holes in it.
And Lance masterfully exposes them.

Read it ... it's a treat.

AaaaRRGGH,

And you highlight yet another petty grammatical error. It should be sock’s not socks.

Doesn’t that depend on which socks he has on today?

I’m good at that, aren’t I?

Not to worry, I fixed it.

I don’t really understand the whole sock puppet fascination w.r.t. Greenwald - as if whatever he happens to be saying is somehow diminshed.

That said, I find him not so good on general "politics" issues, he should stick to the law.

It has become more of a running joke now, but as far as I’m concerned, it is a reflection of his integrity, or lack thereof, at the very least.

And I pretty much agree with your assessment in that regard as well.

Fixed at my place too.

It is not fascination, it is ridicule, an attempt to deal with one of the most dishonest members of the blogosphere without getting too heavy all the time. Fun, amusing, whatever.

Given the outlandish things he accuses other people of he can hardly complain. Making fun of him for something he did is certainly better than accusing people of wanting mass murder (for one example of his many slanders.) Of course, maybe I am missing something and he is really just joshing around. If so, I retract several of my posts and volunteer for instruction on appreciating humor, or at least recognizing it is intended as such.

It does diminish him, because it shows his rather venal nature, something that always has to be kept in mind as his deceptions are often cleverly hidden.

The fact is, he is a paranoid, dishonest, lying, huckster. Sock Puppetry is unimportant, but it is funny and illustrative.

I would watch his legal analysis as well. He uses the same techniques to lure the unwary on those topics as well, it is just harder for non-lawyers to catch him.

LOL!

I knew as soon as I put that up there, someone would jump on the "alternate" meaning.

But you JWG ... I’m shocked! ;)

I teach middle school students. As long as I throw in some reference to a bodily function per day they stay happy. So far I’ve managed to avoid sexual references like the one above, but it’s hard (sorry) not to think about them when you throw them out there.

Jeez, hermaphrodites. Another dadgum minority to put up with. Not that there is anything wrong with it.
