The Daily News published an editorial yesterday that begs to be commented. In "Full Cooperation, Please", they ask from the man at the center of the Eliot Mess, Eliot Spitzer's former communications director Darren Dopp, to full cooperate with the ethics committe investigating the hows and whys of his strategy to leak Bruno's improper use of state vehicles and money. "Darren Dopp must answer under oath every question posed by the commission and must turn over every document under subpoena", they say in the editorial. "Otherwise, Spitzer will have to boot Dopp from his $175,000-a-year job."
As the editorial rightly states, Bruno did break a number of ethics rules himself. Yet Dopp was way too unimaginative, a tad 'stoopid' and equally unethical to use state troopers to uncover the GOPers wrong doing.
Should Dopp have sought the 4th estate's help with this investigation? Maybe. Yet if he had no reason to trust mainstream media to cover Bruno, wouldn't it have been prudent to seek ... ah ... let me think, think, think ... maybe the help of the state's growing 5th estate? Shouldn't a man allegedly connected to the states grassroots gone to the blogs for this kind of oppossition research?
Ahhh ... but that's what so pathetic about Mr. Dopp. He can communicate 'change' and 'populism' and 'grassrootiness' but when it comes down to it, he wouldn't know what the grassroots looked like even if it collectively bit him in the ass.
That is what's so pathetic yet so eye-opening about the whole Eliot Mess.
Had Spitzer been truly the leader of a populist and grassroots base, he wouldn't have a communications director so ensconsend in statusquoism. If Dopp had been there thanks to the grassroots, he would have had the clarity of mind to develop a statewide infrastructure "by the people" and "for the people" to have the tools necessary for exposing the corrupt political machine we call Albany.
Which is why Darren "Dopey" Dopp and other democrats like him should be nominated for Demotards of the Year. read more »
Sometimes I wish I had gone the route of anonymous blogging so that I could really, really say what's on my mind about all the tards and turds of the Democratic Party --because, you know I already hate all republican politicians.
My dreams of anonymous blogging used to get a wettie everytime I read The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs. fakeSTEVE was outed recently but I just as soon decided to not remember his name. I didn't want to destroy the 'childlike wonder' of his anonymity (this, btw, is one of his running jokes). I'd rather believe realSTEVE would call Microsoft's Steve Ballmer SquirrelBoy or that he'd cast aspersions on open-source software activists and devotees by calling them freetards; as opposed to knowing he's some awesomely snarky writer working for Forbes.com.
Which is why I coined the neologism, demotard. So that I could give a shout out to fakeSTEVE and the freetards when I give you the political blind item of the week :
Which demotard got his manties in bunch last week because I dared to criticize an incumbent, his incumbent, because the incumbent happens to be a Democrat!
The manties wearing human excrescence went as far to use my children to attack me for not sucking up to his free lunch and his office.
The. Douchebag. Went. There. read more »
Isn't he special?
