Payola Man Armstrong Calling Others ‘Peculiar’? That’s Hilarious

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 22, 2011

Wow, the Republican Party sure is providing a lot of good belly laughs lately.

The latest one comes courtesy of none other than Armstrong Williams, who you may remember from his being caught acting as a secretly paid scribe for the Bush administration while pretending to be an independent voice. (Hmmmm, now why does that sound familiar? Oh, that’s right — Michael Brodkorb and James “Jeff Gannon” Guckert. But anyway.) You may also remember him, he who is publicly celibate and conspicuously unmarried, as having been sued for sexual harassment by Stephen Gregory, and for having tried to make a pass at David Brock. Any of these things would have served, were he an ordinary human, to keep him banned from public life forever, especially if the political payola had been done on behalf of a Democratic administration. But since he’s a Republican, well, it’s OK for them, you know.

Anyway, this charming human being, this Armstrong Williams, has decided that Minnesota’s governor is “peculiar“.

What, has he sexually harassed someone and had to settle out of court? No. Has he pretended to be an independent journalist whilst serving as a right-wing partisan puke funnel? No.

Well, then, what has he done? Oh, he wants to make the rich pay for the decades-long free ride they’ve had. That of course is a terrible, horrible, no good very bad crime as far as the millionaires paid to shill for billionaires are concerned.
