The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy - Lefty Bloggers for Good

image

The image above was grabbed last night from Facebook by a very old and good blogging friend of mine, GottaLaff.  You’ll notice its a poll that gives the voter some options regarding Obama’s life.  Laffy immediately grabbed a screenshot and then called the Secret Service.

Since then, Laffy’s work has been cited by numerous media outlets and blogs, mostly without attribution. NPR, CNN, Bob Cesca, Alan Colmes and WaPo, among others, gave her some credit.  The Secret Service called and thanked her.  Facebook not only pulled the poll, but the poll app itself.  The poll app developer (not the moron that wrote the actual poll), Jesse Farmer, threw a hissy fit and gave the standard response of “hey, I’m not responsible for content.

So, here’s to you, Ms. GottaLaff.  Welcome to the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.

I’m going to take a stand here: Obama should NOT be killed.  He makes it far easier to weed out the incompetent, incontinent slobs

You know, back in high school I had a classmate who thought it would be fun to duplicate some twenty dollar bills in a printing class.  A couple days later, he enjoyed a nice field trip to the local office of the Secret Service.

I could only imagine the sheer level of scrutiny that will come down upon the dipshit that created that poll.

I’m having a hard time shifting into snark mode here, as I’m physically sickened by this. My fear, as a self-declared member of the sane Americans, is this is the tiny tip of a very large iceberg. These bastards nowhere close to being done whipping themselves into a froth.

I’m also certain some portion has gone well underground, just as our favorite jihadists have, and their vile communications aren’t available for easy viewing.

My fear as well.  Its the ones you don’t hear from that you need to worry about.

Trollhattan, I’ll slip into snark mode for you (though of course I’m disgusted that this poll was created—and that the app developer doesn’t seem to get that it’s not about him).

Anyway, because I’m up at Ass O’Clock and needed a larf to help me not explode from this, the following comment on this poll from a Wonkette commenter made me giggle:

You’ve gone too far this time, Nate Silver!

Just read that one myself being up here at Ass-Thirty.

I’m with @trollhattan. And BRAVO for GottaLaff (GottaCry?). Thanks for sharing @gimmeabreak.

Okay: that Nate Silver crack is FTW.

And I see my earlier post is missing a verb. Typical.
