Never punk-smack a masochist

The punk will keep coming back for more and, next thing you know, you'll spend all your time smacking punks instead of providing insightful commentary on current events.

Nevertheless, infamous poofter James B. Webb has demonstrated the validity of Rule 4 (as if its validity were ever in doubt), showing how a wise selection of enemies can increase traffic. Since he first began his auto-beclownment, his traffic has spiked from a pathetic 53 visitors Saturday to 123 yesterday, and as of 5:11 p.m. ET today, he was at an astonishing 101 visitors!

James: Take 12, and blog me in the morning.

UPDATE: I will be out of pocket this evening, consulting clients and researching economic conditions, and have told Frequent Commenter Smitty that, if he wants to provide insightful commentary on current events, now would be a good time to go hog-wild.

So if you're looking for some Rule 2 action, link us up, e-mail the URL to Smitty and beg for the FMJRA, punks. Remember, today is David Brooks Fisking Day, so you have until midnight to trash that useless idiot with remorseless fury. Trust me, your spleen will thank you.

And if you haven't hit the tip jar yet, do so now. Blogging this brutal is too good to be free.


  1. Auto-beclownment, that's where you choke yourself while a clown goes down on you, right? That's hot.

  2. Just the fact that he, without irony, calls himself a "libertarian socialist" ought to tell you that he's quite the idiot. Once I saw that contradiction in terms on his site, I stopped reading.

    I would recommend the same for others.

  3. Very savvy, thirteen28 (if that is your real name). Calling me names and not reading what I write is the perfect shortcut to actually thinking and engaging in reasoned debate.

    By the way, the interest I'm feigning right now in whether I care or not if you like my site is being done completely ironically.

  4. JBW, if you actually use the term "libertarian socialist" with even a trace of seriousness, then there really isn't much to debate on your site, because it's obvious that you are epically stupid and clueless beyond help.

    What next, are you going to start a movement called "Christians against Christ"?

    How bout "Swingers for Abstinence"?

    If Stacy is guilty of anything, it's he's being too easy on you.

  5. We'll miss you saying really smart and incisive things like this at Brain Rage, thirteen28. Really. We will.

  6. Libertarian Socialist? Don't Tell Eric Dondero, he'll definitely punk-smack you. While I try to avoid tin foil hats, the term is contradictory.

  7. Kinda the point, TRG. I don't like either major political party but I do agree with them both on certain issues. LSism is my made up political philosophy because my views on different issues are neither all left nor all right.

    But I wasn't going to waste time trying to explain that to some anonymous commenter who called me an idiot, stupid, clueless and not worth debating after they had read all six words in the subtitle of my site.

    Any apparent contradictions aside, you're welcome to stop by and contribute to the conversation if you'd like.

  8. Awwww, did somebody get their feelings hurt? I guess I need a time out, huh.

    Pacifists for War, anybody?

  9. No feeling hurt1328, just time saved. Stay anonymous, tough guy.
