Glenn Spleenwald:  Still Putting the “Ass” in “Russian Asset”


From Brother Charlie Pierce:
Goddamn the hackers. Goddamn the journalists who laundered the pilfered material. Goddamn any of them who treated Roger Stone as a source, or as a cute prankster, instead of the nasty vandal he’s always been. Goddamn the pundits who chortled over the pilfered material. Goddamn the politicians who profited from the hacking. Goddamn the politicians who minimized the hacking. Goddamn the politicians who still stonewall about the hacking. Goddamn the “activists” who ranted about “McCarthyism” when anybody pointed out that the 2016 presidential election had been poisoned from afar. Goddamn them all as traitors, if not to the American nation, then to everything that ever made that nation worth the bother. 
By my public school math count, at least three of these goddamns apply to Mr. Glenn Greenwald, who will go right on moving the goalposts, or declaring that goalposts are jackbooted, drooling, Obot trickery, or explaining to Tucker Carlson that none of this matters because whataboutthedroooones! until Pete Omidyar's money runs out.
I don't have any Pete Omidyar money coming my way, but earlier this year I broke and invested some of my very limited funds in a new pair of sturdy, steel-toed "I Told You So" boots because I kept wearing the soles out of my regular "I Told You So" tap shoes.


In retrospect, I believe it was money well-spent.


Behold, a Tip Jar!
