One of the South's most nauseating right-wing media puppets recently had someone return fire. The puppet howled in pain when the buckshot found its target--right in his white, doughy flanks. We're still struggling to wipe the smile from our face.
John Archibald, a columnist for The Birmingham News, consistently has trumpeted the Karl Rove agenda in Alabama over the past 10 years or so. Anything GOP Governor Bob Riley did was pure and honorable. Anyone pursued by Bush-appointed U.S. attorneys Alice Martin and Leura Canary was guilty. Official "corruption"--if it involved a Democrat, person of color, or individual who refused to testify falsely against Don Siegelman--was public enemy No. 1.
Archibald specializes in clucking at the misfortune of others--whether they have committed wrongdoing or not. So imagine our delight in learning Archibald has some untidiness in his own closet. When confronted about his personal mess, Archibald first lied about it, claimed ignorance, and then essentially blamed his wife. What a guy!
No wonder Archibald wants to deflect attention from the real story. The Birmingham Skews has revealed him to be a windbag who enjoys skewering other people, only to lie and cover up when the white, hot light shines on him.
1. So this conservative clips off the bootstraps of others, while clutching his own?
Spending his time condemning people he doesn't like for their financial troubles is an important leg of the conservative personal responsibility stool. His shared assumption is that poverty is a moral failing and there should be no safety net to soften the fall. It's all about "personal responsibility" after all is said & done.
That's what made his first comment after his own bankruptcy was unveiled so rich: "Dang, it appears my family did file for reorganization in 2003. I apologize. I should pay more attention to what goes on in my household" ...Like that was the first he'd heard that his credit cards were cut up, and he went to a courthouse to sign reorganization papers back in '03.
This is beyond hypocrisy, thanx for the post. (For others here, the entire article is worth the read.)
6. He signed the bankruptcy papers in 3 places & lost his house -- then totally "forgets" about it.
Dang, it appears my family did file for reorganization in 2003. I apologize. I should pay more attention to what goes on in my household.
My family and I did go through a catastrophic financial collapse. We lost a house. We declared Chapter 13 in 2003. We have since -- I checked the record -- repaid that debt. I'm looking for a financial counselor.
