Time to hammer down on the rest of these cretins.

"Time to hammer down on the rest of these cretins."

Let's start with you, gilligan.

Fec

Great job, wingman.

bubba

"Great job, wingman."

How would you know?

No one has been stupid enough to ask you to provide those services, and no one has asked to do those services for you.

prell

Saddest day ever.

Hartzman

Joe gives good material.

Fec

You're right, Bubba. I do not require, nor has anyone offered, the services of an incurious and ineffectual sycophant.

bubba

"You're right, Bubba. I do not require, nor has anyone offered, the services of an incurious and ineffectual sycophant."

Instead, you play the more than willing Twink Toad.

prell

Why does Joe want to shut it down altogether? Is he not proud of his seven-year record of work?

The juvenile back and forth often displayed here makes local politics look even more pathetic than it appears up close in real life. I'm rather apolitical myself, a product of overexposure to thieves, rubes and charlatans for twenty years. That said, I always liked the way Guarino handles his business.

Sean

he handled his business like a sociopath -- cold, emotionless, guilt free while gutting anything humane outside of his purview.

What does that even mean? Excuse us for not being genuine. I guess if it ain't captured by the fish eye lens, it ain't real. Poseur.

Oh please cry me a river for the tortured photojournalist. I'll take my friend Bubba every time over some burned out smugly apathetic pseudo-pro safely perched above it all. What you're seeing ain't wrestling, but democracy in action.

Fec

Spoken like a closet bigot, racist, misogynist, hypocrite and coward.

Fec

Let me tell you about real life, Pittman. You ain't got the stones to play this game. So, go back to your little collegial echo chamber where you pretend how tough you got it. And when the end comes, we'll replace you like a light bulb.

Lenslinger

Settle down, Beavis.

Fec

Excuse me, but Beavis doesn't spend his days taking positions and deconstructing the opposition. Beavis doesn't care deeply what happens to his neighbors and the rest of humankind. More to the point, I don't make my living as part of a dying industry which has abdicated its responsibility to do these very things. Nor do I spend my nights reveling in the arcane details of said industry with other captured souls who know what they are part of stinks, but lack the courage to do anything about it.

Billy Jones

Fec, your stench is rising. Dusting with powdered garden lime usually helps.

Triad Conservative

Thanks for this post, Ed. And I appreciate the kind words and sentiments from some of the commenters above.

I will be doing a weekly column in the online Greensboro Guardian starting real soon.

Lenslinger

Fec,

You remain delightfully unhinged. I find your deconstruction of me entertaining, as I've never been one to pay for therapy. But I fear I won't make for a very good sparring partner here, as I lack the deep reservoir of vitriol and self-hatred to keep up with your rants. By the way, I'm ordering new business cards with 'smugly apathetic pseudo-pro' printed on them. LOVE that!

Fec

You are welcome.
