And speaking of meltdowns. If Lee Stranahan ever wants to use that 11 seconds of soundless video he shot for $600 of donor money, he could still use it to make a movie about the behavior being displayed of late by Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Patrick Frey, who blogs under the name “Patterico.” There is a full psychological meltdown underway, and the reasons are easy to understand. More on that later.
And for once, I agree with my dear friend, Mr. Stranahan. It is a devastating, must read. Not only for his sparring last night with an opponent who far outweighs him in debate and analytical skills, but for his Feb. 8 debate with our publisher — the Watchful Avenger — in which he ignores proven truths to front unproved and discredited conspiracy theories.
These are the rantings of a clearly unstable mind.
Last night, the object of his rage was the tweeter known as @OccupyRebellion. He hates her for two reasons. She’s a woman, and she’s smarter than he is.
Ai, yi, yi! That must mean that every conservative who uses “your” when he means “you’re”, “there” when he means “their” or “they’re” (or vice versa) and “to” instead of “too” (or vice versa) must LOGICALLY be…
THE SAME PERSON!
Of course, when you review his timeline, you will see numerous examples of @OccupyRebellion using exclamation points without a space before them, but that would be what the lawyers call “exculpatory” so Frey neglects to add that to his list of exhibits. And, goodness! When one continues down Patterico’s timeline… one finds…
The lunacy continues.
Here he uses two different screen caps, one of Darrah saying that she has screencaps of people claiming to kill her, and one in which OccupyRebellion claims that right wingers are claiming people are coming to kill THEM, and this is supposed to — somehow — show they are related.
Ah! Here’s something Frey picked right up on! Both Darrah and OccupyRebellion refer to the season after Spring by the same name!
But Frey launches into his closing argument.
This is what a Deputy District Attorney for the County of Los Angeles does on a fine Winter Saturday afternoon. He combs through a person’s tweets, compares them to another person’s tweets, and looks for similarities that one could find in coming through two random Twitters using the same methodology.
At this point, OccupyRebellion tries to stop him from embarrassing himself any further.
Entering facts not brought into evidence. No cites, no links, nothing to prove these words were actually ever used.
Realizing she’s arguing with an idiot, Occupy Rebellion withdraws.
Next, he crosses swords with the Watchful Avenger and gets the crust of his baloney sandwich cut from his bread.
