Sort of. Rabid (maybe even paranoid) anti-gay crusader and war-mongerer Judy Paris is no longer blogging for Granite Grok, but she’s been active in the comments section there lately and has only become more of a spectacle since I last saw any output from her.
I’ve been harassing Skip Murphy, the remaining Granite Grok blogger in the wake of Doug Lambert taking a break (and don’t ask me why the Monitor has found any of this newsworthy), because Skip, if anything, is even less able to string a sentence together or display any sense of awareness about the world than Doug is. If you enjoy Schadenfreude with your Wednesdays, have a look at some of these links:
- Here, in the course of claiming that Lambert has suffered “severe” consequences for his actions (including the loss of a few unpaid gigs and nothing more) and that people should just move on, she tells me I’m a legend in my own mind and that I know nothing about God and the Bible (half true). She assures me she’ll pray for me, thereby completing a very predictable circuit of moron-flow.
- Next I decided to point out to Skip that the sentence “After a while, the continued back handed slaps by the President at his own country, our country, seems to be summed up by this:” is a horror show of gratuitous caps, missing hyphens and subject-verb mismatching (never mind the idiocy of the statement itself; I just wanted to tweak his balls). Skip hasn’t said anything about it or corrected himself, but Judy jumped in and accused me of being both a member of the thought police and a “grammer expert.” She then demanded the URL to my blog (which is already linked in every comment I have made at Granite Grok) and accused me, with more vapidity than usual, of firing away behind a wall of anonymity. when I pointed out that the link to this blog was not exactly hidden, she said she didn’t notice it because she’s a busy person and doesn’t have OCD.
- Finally, I pointed out to the Skip the wonderful irony and inanity of titling a post “Concord Monitor – Main Stream Media shows it can’t even do the simplest of fact checking.” Earlier today, the Monitor mistakenly ran the headline “Lambert shuts down his blog” and then changed it to “Lambert stops blogging” when Skip complained. I wrote that calling out all of the “Main Stream [sic] Media” on account of one simple mistake is like claiming that the existence of the miserable and beshitted wreck called Granite Grok implies that there are no competent bloggers. Judy has yet to chime in on this one.
You can’t make characters like Judy up. As for the blog itself, it’s enjoyed a modest increase in site hits thanks to the local publicity and a few links from people ripping Lambert, and I’m sure Skip sees this as his chance to shine. That’s good, because the more he writes, the more evident it is to anyone with a pulse what a dolt he is, with followers like Judy reflecting the tenor of the place.
