I don’t claim to be as good a writer as Stacy McCain…

or anywhere near as popular blogger as Ace of spades.

But can some sane person explain to me why this guy has a job and I don’t?

The video and the photos that he pooh poohs are all over the net. The willingness to accept peoples numbers as stated are foolish, he beclowns himself, it doesn’t make sense….

….until you realize that he is not writing to report, he is writing to persuade, his goal is the same goal of the whole march, to convince despondent liberals and moderates who are joiners to jump on a bandwagon that has no horses. He is selling a Time Share and looking for suckers.

Hey it’s a job. He has one and I don’t so he must be doing something right.

Update: I’m no Stacy McCain but these instalanches are certainly doing my ego good. Thanks Glenn.

Update 2: Byron York nails it

What does a tired and aging movement do? It puts on a program with tired and aging leaders. Sharpton has long ago worn out his welcome among anyone beyond the hard-core Democratic base; the same is true for Jackson. The 83-year-old Belafonte’s appearance at the rally was impressive, but mostly as a vision from an earlier era. Trumka’s appeal does not go beyond the labor movement, and the young gun in the group, Van Jones, left the White House last year amid scandal. It wasn’t exactly an all-star lineup.

That’s pretty much it.

Update 3: The “Time share media” strike again

    He’s also a liberal douche bag so there’s that in his favor..

    To “Textbook” Tommy’s one small credit. When the imfamous ‘Hate F**k’ list came out. A writer at Playboy (They have articles? Who knew?) posted a list of the top ten conservative women he wanted to ‘hate f**k’. Needless to say, it was very offensive and was soon pulled. Red State got screen captures.

    He was one of the very few liberals to speak out against it. Other liberals brushed it off. Even Barbara Erbe went so far to say that Michelle Malkin (who was number one on the list if I recall correctly) deserved it.

    Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Harry Belafonte and a plethora of self-defined organizations of Socialists, Progressives and Communists is a study in lack of diversity – totalitarians all. Equally incompetent in ideas that produce wealth and prosperity for Ameiricans.

    These “people” are rotting from the inside out and will soon be disintegrating and blowing away as “dust” in the wind.

    Ah yes, the sooper-genius who says that union-supplied drones and pre-printed signs are sure markers of an “authentic” grass-roots movement.

    Bowels.
