16 Year Old Wingnut Pwns Liberal Media Weenie Eric Boehlert On Twitter; 2012 Election Nullified

by Doktor Zoom

Game over, man! GAME OVER!OMG you guys! Wingnut blogger Robert Stacey “The Other McCain” McCain, who we’d never even heard of before we did our very first Wonket six months ago, has a very important article about how a plucky 16-year old girl TOTALLY DESTROYED liberal media figure Eric Boehlert in a Twitter argument about Benghazi. Eventually — get this — Boehlert blocked the girl’s tweets, which means that she WINS THE INTERNET and no liberal can ever make fun of FoxNews again! Strange, now that we think about it, that OTHER post we did about this McCain guy was also about something that sounded like junior high school gossip.

OK, so here’s the skinny, as documented in painfully exhaustive detail on the Wingnutosphere’s Newspaper of Record, twitchy.com. First, Boehlert tweeted the completely treasonous opinion that Fox News has been pimping “Benghazigate” well beyond its actual significance, or in Twitchyspeak, “nothing more than part of a grand right-wing nutjob conspiracy” (which, of course, it kind of is, except that “conspiracy” is too grand a term; “strategy to open up a Senate seat by torpedoing Susan Rice” is probably better). In any case, here’s the inflamatory series of twats:

Gauntlet: THROWN! Apparently, Boehlert’s error was in responding exactly as dismissively to Ms. Bowra’s strawman as he would to idiocy written by someone of voting age. He should have checked her profile so that he could have… we don’t know what. Ignored it, maybe. It’s a no-win situation, really, since any disagreement is, of course, “picking on a kid.” So anyway, Bowra fired back:

A devastating reply! Take that, LIE-beral! Twitchy staff comment:

Hey Eric, #trytokeepup with the fact that your arguments are being demolished by a whip-smart young woman.

You see, we thought that an argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition, not just the just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes. But apparently, No it isn’t!

So, yes, there actually is an investigation. But that’s not the point. What is the point?

"Red herring" is a totally racist phrase, too We see. Because the discussion up to this point had totally been about MSNBC.

Another guy jumps in to pick on the poor lass, and Ms. Bowra’s comeback is clearly why wingnuts describe her as a “very bright young woman”:

FINISH HIM!

It’s so TRUE! She really understands how we libruls all talk about Obama every day! Or at least how commenters on wingnut blogs think we libruls all talk about Obama every day, which is probably close enough.

Boehlert by this point has left the thread, which proves his cowardice. RS McCain writes up his exciting story about how Bowra totally pwned Boehlert, and tweets Bowra to congratulate her. She replies!

And now you know...the REST of the story!

The triumphant McCain declares victory:

Badass lefty “intellectual” Eric Boehlert blocks a 16-year-old girl?

It’s hard to imagine how his humiliation could be more complete.

Really. He actually typed that.

Unanswered questions: Is Eric Boehlert going to cry when he finds he has been uninvited from McCain’s birthday party? Will Eric Boehlert be excluded from the cool kids’ lunch table? And is Mr. McCain aware that, via the immutable law of “I’m rubber, you’re glue,” he is actually now the completely humiliated one?

In any case, America, meet Conservative America’s latest young hero, Bethany Bowra, who proved that, even at the tender age of sixteen, she is able to sling meaningless, fallacious invective and to parrot Fox News every bit as effectively as Yahoo News commenters thrice her age. As McCain notes, she followed up her demolition of Boehlert by “tak[ing] on Sandra Fluke and the baby-hating feminist Left:”

Yes, I said it: Today’s feminists, whether directly or indirectly, are actively advocating the murder of unborn baby girls.

Once again, credit where credit is due: That is every bit as sophisticated an anti-abortion argument as we’ve seen from people many years her senior.

I tried to log on and got a FORBIDDEN message!

“Forbidden – Error 403.”

Actually sounded kinda cool, like a secret Internets sex club or something…

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:01 pm

If blocking someone means you've lost, Erick Erickson over at Red State loses about twenty times a day.

commiegirl99 November 30, 2012 at 8:01 pm

uh first or something. You guys I am so tired.

starfanglednut November 30, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Awww, commiegirl99. We are forever indebted to you for your tireless labor in feeding our pathetic snark addictions. Get some rest. We love you.

AlterNewt November 30, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Perhaps a 7&7 would help you to forget the 403s and 404s. Can't imagine the hair-pulling behind the scenes stuff you've been having to do, but thanks.

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

commiegirl99:

I would like to say "Thank you very much!" for keeping Wonkette alive and well! About this time you're probably thinking buying that gay porn site would have been a better investment.

I know you've had server issues all week (and I'm not writing about a tough time getting a beer in a bar) and now this FORBIDDEN matter. I can only guess how breathtakingly frustrating it must be for you.

Please know that your hard work is appreciated.

If you were homeless and barefoot on the streets of New York, I would personally purchase a new pair of boots and some sox for you.

PS: The homage to Peggy of Noonaton was brilliant!

commiegirl99 November 30, 2012 at 8:13 pm

I read that as “and some sex for you.” Which I thought was terribly sweet.

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Dulce – but could we please skip the boots? At least on the first date?

Fred_Wertham_Jr November 30, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Someday, you will look back on this and become enraged all over again.

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Awww… *massages ur shoulders* :0)

Guppy November 30, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Her shoulders don't go down that far.

Designer_Rants December 1, 2012 at 8:18 am

Uh, those are her FRONT SHOULDERS. #totallylegitimaterubbing

emmelemm November 30, 2012 at 8:22 pm

We love you, boo boo.

smokefilledroommate November 30, 2012 at 8:38 pm

She's our Commie Boo Boo.

emmelemm November 30, 2012 at 8:44 pm

You know, I wasn't even thinking of a "certain" Boo Boo in making that comment. I just call people "boo" when I like them.

gullywompr November 30, 2012 at 9:11 pm

That's odd, I say "boo" when I don't like somebody. I'm not up on my slang, is it like how kids today say something is "sick" when really it's not, or "bad ass" means something else entirely?

boobookitteh November 30, 2012 at 9:28 pm

There is only one booboo.

LibertyLover December 1, 2012 at 10:04 am

Not true. I get booboos all the time: paper cuts on my fingers, sometimes when I stub my toes and at various other times. Sometimes requiring a bandaid and sometimes not.

Barbara_ November 30, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Time to kick back and relax with some medical weed.

commiegirl99 November 30, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Oh honey I am so far ahead of you, that something something hilarious!

Boojum November 30, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Sleep well, O' Our Editrix. You have my imaginary back rub being wafted your way.

Chet Kincaid_ November 30, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Aw, Girl. I'ma draw you a bath, arrange the finest Sargento cheeses on some Toll House crackers, and put on some Luther.

smokefilledroommate November 30, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Don't forget the After Eight dinner mints!

Chet Kincaid_ November 30, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Only Frango Mint or Fannie May chocolates, and el Jimador, #1 selling tequila in Mexico, are good enough for my Special Lady.

fuflans December 1, 2012 at 4:04 pm

this made me laugh out loud two days in a row.

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 30, 2012 at 8:41 pm

Relax. The whole world is ending in just another 21 days anyway, so what does any of this matter?

emmelemm November 30, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Look at it this way. In a hundred years, who's gonna care?

Biff November 30, 2012 at 9:33 pm

I'm making popcorn. Wait–popcorn is a Mayan tradition, right?

FeloniousMonk November 30, 2012 at 11:18 pm

"It is believed that popcorn is a Mayan invention." Someone, somewhere on the interwebs, will have already posted your most inspired bit of sublime nonsense as gospel truth. "The river Alph ran through caverns measuring 10.65 kilometers."

Biff December 1, 2012 at 3:09 pm

I read the story of a guy slated for sacrifice in a volcano, and one of the ears of corn 'sploded. They still threw him in, so he didn't get much credit for his invention…

gullywompr November 30, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Nothing really matters. Anyone can see.

Fare la Volpe November 30, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Mama, get some sleep! We can't have you shutting down when there are politicos' dicks to retweet! Come over to House la Volpe and I'll smoke you down and we'll have a vinegar foot bath together.

Chet Kincaid_ November 30, 2012 at 9:17 pm

Did you throw something out of whack with that Noonan post? You can't just jump into that kind of thing without stretching!

Negropolis November 30, 2012 at 10:39 pm

You truly deserve some rest. Thanks for the relatively smooth transition on our end of things. This week must have been hell. Was it more hell than I gave you when you first got here, though? I'll forever feel guilty about being one of the people involved in that war. Talk about a failure to communicate. lol

Callyson November 30, 2012 at 11:15 pm

We owe you a happy hour…let us know when and where…

kittensdontlie December 1, 2012 at 8:58 am

More like happy ending, but whateves…

memzilla November 30, 2012 at 11:37 pm

We few, we happy few, we band of snarkwits, truly appreciate your efforts. We strive to use our intelligence and humor to help you monetize this website.

Together, we daily fight the forces of Faux and Boehner, of Koch and McConnell, of Limbaugh and Coulter, of Noonington and Cantor and Ryan.

We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire. Neither the sudden shock of battle, nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.

MissNancyPriss November 30, 2012 at 8:03 pm

What the holy hell is that picture?

Butch_Wagstaff November 30, 2012 at 8:17 pm

A cat just being a cat?

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:41 pm

HEY!

Chet Kincaid_ November 30, 2012 at 8:50 pm

The Shaolin monks call this attack the Pussy Whip.

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:53 pm

LOL OK, that's pretty good… ;0)

Butch_Wagstaff November 30, 2012 at 9:34 pm

No offense. House of Wagstaff has it's own bad kitty. We pretty much pay for her house. She learned the ancient masterful art of training her humans well and at such a tender age! It was a thing to behold. And she will not let us do anything until we give her the gravy-drenched canned food that she's currently going through at an impressive. She can be really sweet during the times when she's not trying to strip our limbs of flesh.

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 9:41 pm

*BadKitty shares a fresh mouse with Butch*

BerkeleyBear November 30, 2012 at 8:38 pm

I'm pretty sure that is a cat doing a flying high kick into the side of a dog's head, and the dog (per normal) loving the attention.

Terry November 30, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Pure awesomeness

ButthurtWingers2012 November 30, 2012 at 9:02 pm

it's a work of fiction (because cats are wussies) essentially taking a picture of a dog running like an idiot and superimposing a cat kicking said dog in face. It's actually pretty clever but it would be funnier to have a cat kicking a baby in the noggin….just saying but cats beating up humans is always hilarious. Especially when it happens for real…

fuflans December 1, 2012 at 4:13 pm

remember that psycho kitty video making the rounds a couple years back? cats beating up kids is all kinds of awesome.

Geminisunmars November 30, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Well, I'm sure that is not a black or chocolate lab. Looks like a pure bred meth lab to me.

bobbert November 30, 2012 at 11:11 pm

I was gonna say something about bull terrier, but then I read your comment again, so I'll just shut up now.

Negropolis November 30, 2012 at 10:45 pm

It's this thing, like, when you put a midget on roller skates and then you, like, send him down Lombard…

bobbert November 30, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Nah, you can't ever build up any speed on Lombard, on account of all the switchbacks.

Negropolis November 30, 2012 at 11:26 pm

Exactly. lol

I suspect only those that watch SNL will get the parody.

bobbert November 30, 2012 at 11:57 pm

As it happens, I don't get the parody. I've just walked up and down Lombard.

Radiotherapy November 30, 2012 at 8:06 pm

You should see her defend a 3-4% marginal tax hike on the rich. Chris Hayes: watch out!

NorthStarSpanx December 1, 2012 at 10:27 am

If Bristol and Willow weigh in, look out world!

mrpuma2u November 30, 2012 at 8:07 pm

She wasn't blocked cuz she was spewing non-nonsensical troll speak, no, never….

ButthurtWingers2012 November 30, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Because her points were completely moronic and indicative of someone who actually does not understand the original tweet. Saying Faux Nuuz mentions "Benghazi 1200 times a day" does not equate to "should we investigate it?"…in fact that's a non-sequitor because Faux digging up shit for mouthbreathers is not asking for an official investigation. If she wanted to actually address the point she'd ask "should there be a criminal investigation?" but she's a dumb young Faux bimbo in training. Boehlert's reaction back "duh, congress is already investigating it" is pretty much all you can say. My only question is, how long before the inevitable arrest of this McCain for statutory rape? Dude was obviously trollin' for young wingnut vagina with his remarks…and he's stupid.

MaxUdargo November 30, 2012 at 10:18 pm

You know what's weird to me? Now they're talking about the "liberal bubble" we live in. This is obviously a response to all the talk recently about the conservative bubble THEY live in that led them to think Romney was going to win in a landslide.

Has anybody noticed how they quickly adopt all of our criticisms of them, no matter how nonsensical those criticisms are when inverted? It's almost like the words mean nothing, they're just names you call people you don't like. That's why Bronco Bama is a fascist and a socialist and a communist and a Muslim and an atheist and yet still a fanatical follower of Jeremiah Wright.

Maybe that's why you can't have an intelligent conversation with them. You are making arguments, they think you're just calling them names. So the only logic they require is "I'm rubber and you're glue – everything you say bounces off me and sticks to you!"

God I hate them. With votes, of course.

AlterNewt November 30, 2012 at 8:07 pm

This Twitter, it matters?

Chet Kincaid_ November 30, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Yes. When the rolling blackouts hit, it is the short wave radio by which we communicate with Wonk HQ.

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Down like the Internets in Syria…

AlterNewt November 30, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Copy that.

bobbert November 30, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Wait. My electric toothbrush doesn't work anymore?

Callyson November 30, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Hell to the yes…that's how I followed Nate Silver, whom I credit (along with Wonkettte) with preventing me from becoming completely bonkers during the election.

AlterNewt November 30, 2012 at 11:54 pm

Okay, then.

By the way, I recently used a variant of FFS without acknowledging you, so you may choose between breakfast at The Pantry, lunch at Phillippe's, or this lovely dinette set.
http://www.maxfurniture.com/detail-Dining-Dining-

Callyson December 1, 2012 at 1:22 pm

LOL…it would be mean to keep all of the fucks to myself. But lunch at Phillippe's (wherever that is) sounds fun…

Vecchiojohn December 1, 2012 at 10:03 am

Never twatted, never will. When I'm pissed off I just go downtown and stand on a corner and yell shit as loud as I can.

poorgradstudent November 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Ten years from now her genderqueer (or whatever the kids will call themselves then to feel like young radicals) partner whom she met in a Jean-Luc Godard grad seminar will gently make fun of her for all this.

Butch_Wagstaff November 30, 2012 at 9:51 pm

She'll be at the head of the LGBTIAQRSTUV Pride Parade in June 2022.

OzoneTom November 30, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Bethany 2016!!!

I mean If a blah can be president then a "very bright young” teenager should be okay.

smokefilledroommate November 30, 2012 at 8:10 pm

…and then The Other McCain asked new conservative youth firebrand Bethany Bowra what color panties she was wearing and if her parents were home.

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Now, do exactly as I say and I won't set off that device hidden in your garage…

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 30, 2012 at 9:06 pm

"I brought her these condoms and this six-pack of wine-coolers to protect her."

ButthurtWingers2012 November 30, 2012 at 9:09 pm

That's my take away on the entire (heh, heh) affair…I don't care which side you're on, arguing that a partisan media red meat fest constitutes an ACTUAL investigation is moronic. This McCain is either uneducated (likely) or completely missed "logical form" writing…dude just cheered on non-sequitors…I wonder if he claps when Ralf Wiggum says "my cat's breath smells like cat food!" to answer a quiz question too…

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 30, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Dok, I love you, you know it, but you have to admit, compared to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O', Everything on Fox News other than Shep Smith, K-Lo, J-Go, NRO, Red State, etc. etc., Ms. Bowra is an intellectual heavy weight.

SorosBot November 30, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Hey the little squiggly aliens are gone and we can comment again!

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 30, 2012 at 8:19 pm

So, you are saying the acid is finally wearing off?

bobbert November 30, 2012 at 8:58 pm

What? Your av isn't a little squiggly alien?

*Gets glasses*

Nevermind.

PuckStopsHere November 30, 2012 at 8:10 pm

If your most eloquent spokesperson is a 16 yr old girl, does it say anything about the quality of the ideas you advocate?

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:43 pm

IKR? My first thought was "You Wingtards are SO consumed by the desire for revenge that *this* is the best you can do?"

ButthurtWingers2012 November 30, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Considering their most influential idea came from an immature turd who developed his big 'no tax' idea at age 13? yes, I'd say this is pretty much the best they can do. Wingnuts are just excited to have someone under 50 advocate their idiocy and R.S. McCain is contemplating stautory rape…

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 30, 2012 at 8:11 pm

I wonder how often FOX News reported on the death of any given four soldiers between 2002 and 2008 in Iraq or Afghanistan?

Butch_Wagstaff November 30, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Umm…I'm thinking of a number…I'll let you guess what the number I'm thinking of is…

Chet Kincaid_ November 30, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Proceed, Bethany!

AlterNewt November 30, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Beautiful.

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:16 pm

Just for the record – "Twitchy" is the dumbest name ever. For anything. Even a hop head.

It's OK when Thomas J. Waller sang it ("Man – look at the way he's twitchin'") in the classic "The Joint is Jumpin'."

Other than that – Nope.

e_z November 30, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Wow, that kid is razor sharp, hope she doesn't cut herself…and RS McCain, smart enough to get of his parents basement…someday.

glamourdammerung November 30, 2012 at 8:20 pm

McCain is the same clown that had a story up on his site about how I hurt his feelings by pointing out he is a "noted white supremacist" to one of our visiting trolls.

Anyone else remember when terrible people did not also go on like 12 year old girls?

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:20 pm

This sounds like my sophomore year in high school. Why is this news?

gullywompr November 30, 2012 at 9:54 pm

You went to high school? What a snob!

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 9:56 pm

It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it.

smokefilledroommate November 30, 2012 at 8:21 pm

"And our Very Special Guest today on Fox and Fiends is a sixteen year old whom we believe to be a true patriot. She won a Twitter War against lamestream liberal Eric Boehlert simply by standing up for her conservative beliefs. Fascist libunatic Boehlert later blocked the teen [gasp!] from contributing to the conversation. Bethany Bowra, everyone!"

Tundra Grifter November 30, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Newsbusters' "Person of the Year!"

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Anyone who uses the term "Twitter War" seriously deserves to be laughed out of the room…

commiegirl99 November 30, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Ahem.

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:52 pm

I meant SERIOUSLY seriously. As if something of value were actually at stake in said "war".

(did that make it any better?) :0/

Ha, you know, all of the Winger males in my family would pat me on the back when I would parrot their horeshit hen I was fourteen. I think it's how they reproduce their beliefs in the next generation, like some kind of backwards reinforcement scheme. Like fourteen year old boys, they don't like being told when they're wrong, so they act out in kind.

Guppy November 30, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Actually, the kid may have something with the "Joe Biden turning people gay" bit.

Everyone's queer for Joe.

I got blocked by anti-LGBT wingnut Peter LaBarbera. I WIN!

John Birf Society November 30, 2012 at 8:27 pm

I love it here in the liberal bubble. Where the abortions flow freely. Where hard work isn't necessary, one only needs to wait for the Tsunami of government largesse. Where the national religion is a melange of Scientology, Satanism, and Bokononism. Where hookers are unionized, subsidized, and for everyone, not just Charlie Sheen. Welcome, my brothers and sisters.

SnarkOff November 30, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Mmmm, mmm. Life is sweet. [Pops government-issued Champagne and settles down in front of government-issued wide-screen TV.]

And we're independent business owners. I own several franchised Abortionplexes.

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:47 pm

How long before your quote, JB, appears in some outraged editorial in the Neo-Con media? 5-4-3…

HempDogbane November 30, 2012 at 9:32 pm

You forgot to mention free phones. Why do you hate America?

When do we get our gifts? Do we have to wait until the inauguration?

BlueStateLibel December 1, 2012 at 9:05 am

And on every day we all refer to President Obama as our "Lord and Savior" and "The One," meanwhile enjoying our annual $40,000 per year welfare benefits. Life is good in liberal land!

Vecchiojohn December 1, 2012 at 10:19 am

I love the taste of gummint cheese in the morning. It tastes like – victory!

Dr_pangloss November 30, 2012 at 8:29 pm

What does it mean that nearly every rightwing christian douche has comments blocked on Youtube then?

Oh Noes, Now he won't be able to go with Jenny to the Prom! She'll be just to embarased to be seen with such a loser.

snowpointsecret November 30, 2012 at 8:31 pm

What, blocking a 16-year-old means you lose? Man, what passes for sanity to some people is astounding.

You stay safe out there, you brave penguin.

A real man would have argued with a 16 year old forever. Loser.

SorosBot November 30, 2012 at 8:46 pm

So once this Bethany grows out of her parents' brainwashing and gets over her wingnuttitude this incident will look nice and embarrassing.

BadKitty904 November 30, 2012 at 8:55 pm

It'll be interesting when her kids, age 16, find this fracas buried on the Intertubes…

Negropolis December 1, 2012 at 1:58 am

OT: And, the Mississippining of Michigan continues unabated…

A bill that would allow concealed weapons in daycares and theaters is already through the Senate.

Right now those places are among a list of pistol-free zones, but the new law would make it okay to have a weapon there, if you have the right training.

"It'll be the citizens that have special enhanced training, and retired police officers, off-duty police officers that will be there to protect the children, or protect whatever location it is," Sen. Jones said.

That's not the way Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth sees it though.

"Think about this: You're at a University of Michigan football game on Saturday, you've got 119,000 screaming people, and half of them are drunk," Sheriff Wriggelsworth said. "Do you really want the guy sitting next to you to have a gun?"

All we can do is hope that Governor Snyder doesn't sign this, and, unfortunately, despite his relatively moderate image, he's vetoed less than a handful of bills that have reached his desk for his crazy-ass caucus.

Chow Yun Flat December 1, 2012 at 8:45 pm

I think Snyder is what passes for being a moderate Republican regarding economics–for example he opposes making Michigan a right to work (for less) state–and really doesn't care much about social/cultural/mind-control issues. So he may just say "WTF, I got state troopers to protect me, I'll sign it.

Negropolis December 1, 2012 at 9:53 pm

He doesn't oppose Right-to-Work, he has simply said it would be "divisive" without ever taking a side even when asked directly. And as a former businessman, you sure as hell better believe that he'll sign anything that makes Michigan more "business-friendly" whatever the fuck that means. The crazy thing is that even the state Chamber of Commerce told them to knock the shit off with Right-to-Work-(for-Less) legislation.

Trust me, if it gets to his desk, he'll sign it. I don't trust this man further than I can throw him. In many ways, he's worse than the Republican warriors in othere states because he doesn't own up to his own craziness.

BleuBunny December 1, 2012 at 2:22 am
