In our continuing examination of what the Conservative Noise Network finds important, we bring another post examining the post acceptance speech coverage. Again from some of our friends at Eschaton:
WTF ... CNN is relaying the floor director's direction ... "more ballons dammit ... what's happening ballons ... all ballons ... what the fuck are you guys doing up there? " right now on CNN ... what a fuck up Wolf Nitzer
There were previous mentions of balloons on this thread but this is the first one that put the picture firmly in mind. WTF I'm thinking, I mean this is right on the heel of the acceptance speech and CNN is reporting about balloons. Maybe misunderstanding or abberation:
cnn is carrying the audio of some guy yelling for more balloons. seriously, he's yelling "we need more balloons, more balloons. we need more fucking balloons."
nice job cnn.
Hmmmm, maybe there really is something about this that we should all find disturbing. Meanwhile on C-Span I'm watching Kerry walking around with Edwards and working the crowd, a beautiful thing IMHO. Let's see:
Now the fucking nitwits will spend an hour on the fucking ballon gate ...
why do ballons hate America?
My personal favorite, you go D.C. or Puerto Rico whichever 51st candidate you have in mind. But wait, let the other shoe drop:
MORE BALLOONS!! freakin CNN.... Blitzer starts comparing the convention to carters convention and said it may be a turning point....
wouldn't hold my breath,
What the is CNN's problem? This is Kerry's moment and they have some guy in the background screaming, dropping the f-bomb, about balloons! Do they know what they're doing? At this point in media culture I have to say yes. Anyone else catch this?
No I'm sure that it was an honest mistake, and that no advantage was intended, afterall they invited that very nice Ed Gillespy on after Kerry's speech to provide some balanced analysis, and I'm sure that that nice man Terry McCaulif will be doing the same after GWB accepts his nomination. Speaking of Gillespy:
gillespi is on cnn now -- very weird body type -- almost turtle like -- i wonder if he was spawned from a box turtle love fest
Kind of an inside joke, material provided by a rep named Cornyn (lots more fun to be had with this name), an audible called, but once the cat is out of the bag, well, ya just got to run with whats given you, ya know. Back to this balloon thing:
Can you believe that after that, CNN talks about the BALLOONS????? Yeah, THAT'S important. Oh, it's just like Carter's convention, the balloons went bad then, too, so Kerry's gonna LOSE.
Thats pure punditopea, Wolfie rubs a couple of neurons together and coughs up another analytical hairball, get that man some butter - stat. But there is a point, at which, you know a new meme has blasted off, something about a blue dress, and bottom feeding comes to mind Oh yeah here it comes, and it ain't no 19th nervous breackdown:
Matt "Fudge the Truth" Drudge has this posted on his site:
"IF ANYONE HAS AUDIO OF CNN LIVE FEED OF OPEN MIC AND DNC BOOTH AND YELLING AT FAILURE OF BALLONS, PLEASE EMAIL TO MDRUDGE@AOL.COM... "
You know you have arrived, when the inestimible Drudge, did I mention bottom feeding....Back to our friend, the one who broke the story as far as I am concerned:
CNN is souless ... simply disgusting media fucking whores
There are a number of ways to put this but would they be as honest a reflection of frustration. A frustration no doubt bourn of countless examples like this:
That insipid viper Gillespie is trying to call Kerry's speech pessimistic?
So much hate in that tiny, stupid man. Any normal human being would have been rotted away right from the core... he must surely be made of baser stuff.
For the love of topical digs:
Damn those Diebold balloon machines!
A quick thinking response to slimebag "can't you afford a bank of DVR's" Dumbass:
IF ANYONE HAS AUDIO OF CNN LIVE FEED OF OPEN MIC AND DNC BOOTH AND YELLING AT FAILURE OF BALLONS, PLEASE EMAIL TO MDRUDGE@AOL.COM..
Fill up Drudge's mailbox with fake mp3s. Ideally ones of you saying 'FUCK YOU, EGGMAN!' But any old MP3 that you've renamed to 'fuckingballoons.mp3' will do.
Do it now.
And now that french thing, that phrase with peace and resistance:
Now the CNN guy is complaining he's "inundated" by balloons. Jeez,
you just can't please these guys. You asked for balloons, Kerry gave you balloons
There's your vaunted CNN for you, and an example of what you can learn from others. To all my pals at Atrios
, I couldn't have done this without you. lets just hope I don't have to chase down alot of formatting issues.
