It’s not often we here at Hammer of Truth are on the receiving end of negative criticism for the types of stories we post about (well, differing of opinions is a whole other beast). I like to think most of our readers are smart enough to realize that simply posting (even mocking) something doesn’t automatically translate into endorsement.
Apparently not so much with this blogger, who chooses to call us Hammer of Bullshit (which, incidentally, is where the cleverness of his exhaustive post ended) in regard to my writeup on the dubious quote of Bush calling the Constitution “just a GD piece of paper.”
I suppose I endorsed the veracity of the reporting when I called Capitol Hill Blue “the political rag that doubles as a tin foil hat” or when I used finger-quotes around the word “reporting” or when I followed up with an update pointing out the credibility gaps of CHB and a prior acknowledgement of being conned. No, indeed… let me fess up now and say I was indeed “endorsing” the article.
You caught me, Mr. blogger who’s schtick is to rip on the credibility of a post that’s ripping on the credibility of a news story. I’m betting you’d be a riot to take to the comedy club, I can only imagine the insightful 3000-word critique on how you didn’t get any of the jokes.
