Written in the stars: Kos’s co-author hit with $30,000 SEC fine; Update: Kossack to Drudge: Oh yeah? Well, you’re gay

posted at 8:44 pm on August 8, 2007 by Allahpundit

I don’t get it. Didn’t Vis Numar, astrologer to the stars, warn him that the feds would sniff him out? How foolhardy of Armstrong to get entangled in something like that without a heads up from “Vis” as to how it would turn out.

You’ll recall, I hope, that this “non-story” was allegedly the subject of a Townhouse communique last year from the Chairman himself, who urged the illuminati on the cc list to kindly keep their fat mouths shut about it. And darned if those irrepressible truth-speakin’ morons didn’t comply.

Incidentally, this is the second time in five days that Drudge has floated a derisive Kos angle on the front page. Matt, you magnificent bastard.

Update: The nutroots fire back with their favorite insult.

Drudge and O’Reilly are really working to stir up the hornet’s nest, huh?

Its about time someone did, and I hope its just the beginning. O’Reilly has been covering Kos brand hate, but his coverage is still a bit shallow. The floodgates need to be opened so people can see the years of sewage bottled up in the Sinistrosphere out in the open.

I’m disappointed that talk radio hasn’t been on this as much as it should be. Rush always tells people to go to the big Nutroots sites, but I’ve never heard him read from them. It would be nice if the GOP would get in on it too.

Bad Candy on August 8, 2007 at 8:55 PM

I really look forward to the Dems coming down really hard on such a prominent figure of their new-media revolution.

Expect nightly news reports and congressional hearings.

Agreed.

The nutroots fire back — with their favorite insult!

As predictable as the sun rising in the east tomorrow morning.

Spirit of 1776 on August 8, 2007 at 9:16 PM

oh you have discovered the flaw in my logic by calling me gay
this wound is mortal
oh I die

pathetic

Defector01 on August 8, 2007 at 9:19 PM

is the GOP strategy for 08′ partly to have the right or lean right media to finally put one big bullz Eye on these nuts and have the major Dems guilty by association? To re-inforce the perception that majority of voters have in not trusting the Dems with FP?

BREAKING: Closeted Homosexual Matt Drudge slams DailyKos
by WinSmith

And this was written by a progressive and tolerant, puppy loving green liberal, who is in no way a homophobe.
Right?

Tru2my2 on August 8, 2007 at 9:22 PM

KOS implodes and is 1/3rd of what is is now….by January 08.

any takers?

shooter on August 8, 2007 at 9:28 PM

What tipped you off, MarKOS? The hat? What set off your finely-tuned gaydar?

Here’s a Greek word for you: Hypocrite

Not that there’s anything wrong with that…….

Janos Hunyadi on August 8, 2007 at 9:28 PM

It always amazes me how the so-called “party of tolerance” decides to declare a homosexual anybody that dares disagree with moonbats up in the belfry. I thought there was no shame in being gay! What is this 7th grade?

Bob's Kid on August 8, 2007 at 9:30 PM

You should read the comments at Kos. I lifted one here.

They devolve from homophobic slurs into an argument over whether or not homophobia “advances the cause” of Kos.

Pay special attention to the ones defending “outing gay Republican hypocrites.”

Good Lt on August 8, 2007 at 9:32 PM

The argument makes sense to me.

I report you owe the SEC in 30,000 in SEC fines

The only response is “you’re gay”.

Good times…It reminds me of 2nd grade when I played “lair liar pants on fire”.

I kicked butt among the 2nd graders in “liar liar pants on fire” BTW.

Embedded in one of the pages liked to in this post was something at astroworld, said to be astrology. It didn’t look like astrology to me, rather it looked like coded messages.

Or perhaps, noise, meant to look like coded messages intended to drive the cryptographers nuts trying to decrypt the thing.

Or perhaps it was just inside politics slang between DU insiders.

I just can’t help wonder why democrat activists are so vehement in their opposition to government surveillance of foreign terrorists, and possible contacts here in the US. What are they afraid of?

rockhauler on August 8, 2007 at 9:43 PM

The next democratic forum is sponcered by gay activists. Wonder if they will ask them why Kos hates gays ?

William Amos on August 8, 2007 at 9:43 PM

Once again the left proves how homophobic they really are.
What a bunch of 2 faced D-Bags

400lb Gorilla on August 8, 2007 at 9:44 PM

What if the Kossacks have a point. Should we really be listening to reports from people who could possibly be gay? Only if we want more hurricanes.

frankj on August 8, 2007 at 9:49 PM

Maybe we should put the following as our lead story on hot air

KOS LIKES THE COCK, I MEAN HE REALLY REALLY LIKES THE COCK
(I’m channeling ACE)

Defector01 on August 8, 2007 at 9:53 PM

These guys are so incredibly hypocritical.

nailinmyeye on August 8, 2007 at 9:58 PM

Incidentally, this is the second time in five days that Drudge has floated a derisive Kos angle on the front page. Matt, you magnificent bastard.

I’ve actually heard him joke on his radio show that he should sue them for defamation, over a posting that one time stated he was caught with child porn…

(Mid-comment update)

HotAir actually covered it at the time (complete with link to screen cap of Kos post that was removed)

http://hotair.com/archives/2007/04/03/har-dee-har-kos-kid-satires-drudge-as-child-pornographer/

Kos Kids call it satire… any normal person calls it liese and smears… there’s nothing “satire” about it… They hate Drudge, so they made up a story just to show that they hate him, and he should sue them in to oblivion.

RightWinged on August 8, 2007 at 10:09 PM

Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos is a dork just like everybody who attended Northern Illinois University.

Developing….

radjah shelduck on August 8, 2007 at 10:21 PM

I didn’t know the compassionate and tolerant left
were so into name (slur)calling.

To refresh everybody’s mind.The liberals snookered,
the gay vote(im pretty sure Clintons second term that he got
elected)by promising to push the marriage issue,got their
vote and then screwed them.

canopfor on August 8, 2007 at 10:59 PM

These guys are too young and ignorant and full of themselves to not have left a big wet stinking trail in a few places.

I bet Carville or Clinton have a hammer ready to drop on one the nutroots the minute they get too close.

I love nutroots tied up in a stock “insider trading” scandal!

Thats better than the gay republican thing..last time I checked it was still legal to be a gay republican..even in Texas!

186k on August 8, 2007 at 11:21 PM

The KosKidz delusion would be amusing if it wern’t so frightening that the Dem candidates hold stock in these bottom-dwelling nutcases.

Drugde: One of your guys was caught in insider trading!

KosKid: Yeah, well… YOU’RE A CLOSETED GAY *^$^*OT MAN *** PLUMBER!

Not that there’s anything wrong with being A CLOSETED GAY *^$^*OT MAN *** PLUMBER!

BKennedy on August 8, 2007 at 11:29 PM

Hey Drudge….I’m a not-so-famous, self-hating, way-out-of-the-closet, dyke and right-wing propagandist blogger.

Let’s do lunch!

The Ugly American on August 8, 2007 at 11:30 PM

A party that goes to bed with Islamic terrorists is going to be homophobic.

How long can gay people continue to vote Democratic?

thuja on August 9, 2007 at 12:46 AM

The KOS ‘parents’ and children are still latrine-rats, this time happily wallowing in their homophobic slush…

The Ugly American

Dear Ugly,

From what I can see, Kos does “lynch,” not “lunch.” Perhaps that’s why so many people are kostophobic.

Dr. Charles G. Waugh on August 9, 2007 at 1:03 AM

I can’t wait to see the picture of Matt Drudge in blackface!

SouthernGent on August 9, 2007 at 1:28 AM

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for Andrew Sullivan to declare this “gob-smackingly vile.”

Sean M. on August 9, 2007 at 2:46 AM

The proper pronunciation is Daily Chaos not Daily Kos, because the inmates run the asylum.

T J Green on August 9, 2007 at 6:40 AM

The intolerance racket.

Everyone has some level of intolerance. This concept of PC that marks certain people as tolerant and others as intolerant is completely subjective and disingenious to the core.

Who died and named anyone god?

This “PC-think” is a technique exploited in Mao’s China to manipulate the body politic. When I hear “he’s intolerant” spew from someone’s pie hole, I mark that person as a moron or a closet marxist.

What is it with insecure people who find security in forcing acceptance (sometimes through the law or courts) from total strangers?

Homos are not alone in the intolerance racket. CAIR, Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, DailyKOS…they all use the intolerance racket. And, all of these characters are intolerant! Sharpton would not buy a home next to David Duke in Louisiana. CAIR would not invite Jewish rabbis into their meetings. DailyKOS would not invite perdurable people to their conventions.

Closeted Homosexual Matt Drudge

Remember this is the Kos Crowd. There’s nothing wrong with being homosexual, Drudge is only insulted by saying he is closeted. Denying his orientation is his only real sin.

Really, try thinking like a Kos kid. Nah don’t it’ll just make you dizzy.

TunaTalon on August 9, 2007 at 9:11 AM

Wow…sums Kos up immensely.

Listen to Drudge’s radio show, then watch the video of Markos at this year’s YearlyKos, and YOU tell me who the fay one is.

Seriously though, my comment is in jest. Imagine HotAir calling a political opponent gay, or Bill O’Reilly. He’d be out of a job.

MadisonConservative on August 9, 2007 at 10:00 AM

There sure are a lot of ads on TNR. Capitalist pigs!

Harpoon on August 9, 2007 at 10:15 AM

Remember this is the Kos Crowd. There’s nothing wrong with being homosexual, Drudge is only insulted by saying he is closeted. Denying his orientation is his only real sin.

You beat me to it Tunatalon. I would only add that the epithet “self-hating,” along with “closeted,” is what Kos is relying on to insulate himself from gay criticism.

smellthecoffee on August 9, 2007 at 10:35 AM

Do liberals take a class in slurs? Is there some sort of special cd-rom that they distribute? “Can’t form a cohernt and cogent argument? Use a slur.”

William Teach on August 9, 2007 at 11:00 AM

TunaTalon on August 9, 2007 at 9:11 AM

Shouldn’t the ACLU be up front, and all over, defending anyone’s right to be closeted? This is the anti-anti-FISA bill crowd, after all, in other words for absolute privacy.

Entelechy on August 9, 2007 at 12:12 PM

“I really look forward to the Dems coming down really hard on such a prominent figure of their new-media revolution.”
Dream on my friend, dream on. They can’t even shut Cindy Shame Ham up, you think that they will silence the evil Kos?

As far as Kos’ “gay” comment goes, I think that Kos didn’t mean it in sexual terms. It was the same school yard taunt that kids use to call each other stupid jerks. In Kos’ case, it’s projection either definition you use…Victimhood and projection are the only defensive tactics the lefties have since they are loathe to hear, let alone tell the truth.

Perhaps Kos is a slur name.

Dr. Charles G. Waugh on August 9, 2007 at 1:42 PM

Ooops, I just got informed…
Kos was saying that Matt is gay.
Well, it sure is funny that being gay is something to mock when your opponent is a conservative but something to praise and condone-in it’s ugliest aspects-when you’re on the left.
Same old same old and, oh well, I haven’t gone to Drudge’s site in months, maybe a year.

Christine on August 9, 2007 at 1:46 PM

These Kos kids are easy as a Rush street slut lookin’ for a sugardaddy. They’ll bite on anything. If they sent one of these freaks to my “place of business” the guys I work with would have them in a straightjacket in about 20 minutes.

LtE126 on August 9, 2007 at 5:21 PM

BTW…I’m not sayin’ that Kos is gay but, he is very well spoken and he pronounces his S’s very well.
