Mark Koldys-Johnny Dollar Comment of the Day

This one's almost too easy, folks. If this isn't the most supremely hypocritical thing Johnny Dollar-Mark Koldys has ever said, you'll have to prove it to me.

Ain't that rich? Proving that J$ is a fucking hypocrite is like shooting fish in a barrel.

Day In History ► May 7 ► The Beatles’ Last U.S. Single

Dateline 1970 – The Beatles released “The Long and Winding Road” on this day. It would turn out to be the last single The Beatles ever released in ‘Merka. A month earlier, on April 10th, Paul McCartney, citing “personal, business and musical differences” announced he was leaving The Beatles. Ten days later he released his first solo LP “McCartney” (recently re-released with bonus tracks) and four days after that Ringo Starr released his first solo LP, “Sentimental Journey.” Therefore, “The Long and Winding Road” had to compete with other Beatles on the ‘Merkin charts.

Mitt Romney Is A Spineless Wimp Who Would Do Anything Or Say Anything To Become President

Mitt Romney wearing his "magic underwear."
There’s a lot to dislike about Mitt Romney. However, at the top of the list is the fact that the Etch-A-Sketch candidate has no backbone. This week Mittens threw his own spokesman on security issues under the bus. Richard Grenell was the subject of a Reich Wing Freak Out because he’s…shhh!... a homo, who lives as an openly Gay man.  There was the usual shitstorm with the usual suspects, including Bryan Fischer, of the horrible American Family Association, known nationwide for its intolerance. Mittens reacted to the controversy by asking Grenell to seek other employment.

Here’s the real joke, tho’. When Fischer found out Grenell had been fired, he called it a “huge win” for the religious right. Then, the very next day, Fischer did his own pivot and started criticizing Romney for listening to him in the first place:

[I]f Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me?
