Krusty Kalled to Karpet for Krappy Komentary...

...and forced to change his tune a bit.

Well folks, our favorite Klown has taken a real beating this week. You bloggers on the "Konservative" side may have seen this shaping up.

Fortunately for those of us who look to Krusty's daily kolumns for guidance and insight, he has toned down the rhetoric a notch today, and supplied us with a great post on what's behind the candidate's TV ads.

What did it take for the public to get a quality post from the disgruntled blogger? Read on as I kronicle Krusty's nosedive this week.

The saga began when his report from the 1st District GOP Convention trickled in ever-so-slowly, and then was scoffed at by everyone who seems to have actually attended. Note his post was so Krappy that the report right here at Iowa's First actually made it verbatum into the comments section of that post on Krusty's blog. Don't worry, Klown, you can send me the royalties check later.

Then on Tuesday, Krusty put up a softie posting about Bill Dix's new TV commercial as an attempt to distract from Dix's underperformance at Convention and Krusty's BS post about it a day earlier. Unfortunately, Krusty's post included almost as much fluff as Dix's commercial! Within the comment section, a curious blogger (who I assume is a Kennedy suppporter) questioned Krusty about Dix's support for the Values Fund. Krusty, a statehouse employee, claimed to have no recollection of the vote, or even knowledge of how to find out, but was able to say this, "Even if he did vote for it, it doesn't mean I'll stop supporting him. "

Krusty was humiliated that day when Maverick cleared the air and posted the truth about the vote.

Seems to me that aside from the vote, the real question proudiowan was getting at was who was telling the truth about the vote. Krusty, now that it's known that Dix did vote for it (no thanks to any help from you, I might add), will you continue supporting him knowing that he LIED about his vote?

Wednesday though, my question was answered, when it became clear that he still stands with his boy in the Statehouse. Posting a rant about Brian Kennedy's support for the FairTax, Krusty tried to paint the proposal as a smart political move rather than true belief in the idea.The Krust says that Kennedy isn't serious about the FairTax because he's never mentioned it until this month.

Lucky for us, proudiowan (I think this guy lives to be a pain in Krusty's ass) called him out on it and chronicled all the appearances of the FairTax on the Kennedy website.

It seems though that today is shaping up well for Krusty, and Fridays are usually pretty slow, so maybe the Klown will make it through the week with only a few bumps and bruises. Hopefully he'll be back next week with the same objective viewpoint we see today.

I'm glad I can provide you with some original kontent.

I think proudiowan isn't paid to be a pain in my ass, I think he is paid to get Kennedy elected.

Speaking of the 1st CD, everyone's favorite consulting firm to Mod Whalen who was staffing for John Cox on district convention day, has denied working for Cox. which led me to post this on Krusty's site:

hmmmmm.... Dumas wouldn't lie about working for Cox would he?!?!

Precedent there is, take trip down memory lane we shall, see below:

On or about November 10, 2005, when first questioned by members of the media about the corporate funded TV ad, Brian Dumas, a spokesperson for the Whalen
for Congress campaign and Vice President of the political consulting firm Victory Enterprises, told reporters that the corporate TV ad was not created by consultants to the Whalen campaign. Dumas maintained that the corporate TV ad was produced by a media firm that has previously produced commercials for the Machine Shed Restaurant and that the commercial was filmed “well before [Whalen] was ever considered a candidate or had thought about running.” Similarly, in response to these same inquiries Mike Whalen denied any involvement of his campaign in producing the corporate funded TV ad.

However, one week subsequent to Mike Whalen’s and Dumas’ denial of
campaign involvement in production of the corporate funded TV ad, the media reported that contrary to Dumas’ and Mike Whalen’s assertions, the corporate funded TV ad was in fact produced by Whalen for Congress’ lead political consultant, Steve Grubbs of Victory Enterprises.

It was further reported that the corporate funded TV ad was filmed and produced in March of 2005, which is the month after Whalen for Congress filed its Statement of Organization and two months after Steve Grubbs and Victory
Enterprises were retained by the Whalen for Congress campaign.

News accounts further revealed that Carmen Darland, vice-president for marketing at Heart of America, Inc. (the parent company of the Machine Shed
Restaurants), collaborated with agents of Victory Enterprises in scripting the corporate funded TV ad.

Dumas, a liar? Par for the course it seems....

Sigh.... Blue side, defeat it we must!!!
