These are so awesome to read that I may have to make an entirely new category on ass-rippings.
Regardless, here is S.D. Liddick, HuffPo man about town, ripping “independent” journalist Dahr Jamail three ways from Sunday.
I’m phobically allergic to the conservative Republican types the military is rife with, but I’ve only been in country four months and already I hate liberals. There’s plenty of ugliness to report in Iraq (as there are thousands of stories of hope and headway)–and the U.S. military certainly isn’t beyond reproach. Nobody’s telling you to report on one side or the other. But manipulating the truth because of your own personal biases is wretched and works in the face of progress. The other end of the political spectrum disregards you, Dahr, and now I know why. I thought it was because you’re a liar–but you aren’t. You don’t have enough backbone to be a liar. You’re a craven obfuscationist, intent on promoting your agenda at the cost of a menagerie of much braver men and women.
Things like this just make me chuckle a little bit. Like all butt chewings, if you’re not the recipient, you’ve gotta admit that sometimes they can be funny as heck.
