Little Joey beats a dead horse about the beating of a dead horse....and then blames all the horse beating/animal cruelty on Jim Rapp
*Mr. Reddish conducts an unprofessional interview with the City Council President.
*Little Joey breaks out the pom poms to cheer on the immature display
*Mr Reddish apologizes on air for his Albero-like behavior
*An official statement is released regarding the incident
*Since the day after the interview, Little Joey declares that everyone is beating a dead horse over the hubbub and to let it drop.
Where exactly was the constant harping on the subject? There was no excessive apologizing or hand wringing. There was no Imus-esque drawn out debacle.
This is just another example of Little Joey trying to not only dictate the tone, but the truth as well. There was no excessive hullabaloo over the interview that wasn't fueled by Joey's zeal for the public lashing. Now, it appears that the public consensus (correct me if I am wrong) is leaning towards the belief that Mr. Reddish was out of line in his channeling of Joey to interview Council President Smith.
Now, instead of acknowledging himself that his support of the interview and previous immature attacks against the Council President were out of line, Joey only wants his readers to ignore his behavior, predictions, and approval of interviewing tactics, and start believing that this non-existent up swell of dissatisfaction created by the Mayor has become too much and we need to move on as a community.
This is the second time in recent days (the feigned indignation- 'there is gambling going on here?!?! I am shocked, shocked!!- over the tone of certain blogs) that Joey has called for the high road to be taken.
That is the problem with self-serving "leaders", and Joey is a prime example, is that they are quick to proclaim this and that, but they are unwilling to actually follow through.
That is what I believe to be the true calling of these blogs: Keepers of record to ensure that the politicians and community leaders are held responsible for their actions. However, there is no reason that this cannot be done without courtesy and respect.
I will now take part in the beating of the horse: Joey is not a community leader in any shape or form, and is merely an opportunist using the blogs and the citizens for his vendetta against those that didnt back down to the big bully. This needs to be on the front of everyone's mind when they read his blog. Everyone reading these blogs needs to know this, from the new bloggers to those lurkers, to those who only read the "legitimate" news blogs. The word needs to get out there so that Joey is completely discredited as long as he is continuing to act in the manner that he has chosen.
I am not saying to not read his blog (How could you not? Everybody loves a train wreck in the making), but when you do, always have it in the front of your mind that no matter helpful the information that the author giving the information does not have the best interest of the city at heart and is merely furthering his vendetta in almost every single post. He must be held accountable for the lies and hate that he spreads. We all know that his time is coming, but the wolf should not be given a free pass to the chicken coup while the farmer makes his way over to handle the situation. (How is that country quote from a Democrat? Ever my blog and metaphors are inclusive.)
In a related note of Alberopocracy: Joey uses a Daily Times poll to validate his point in regards to an apparent mandate for a restaurant owned by Mr. Racial Sensitivity. Apparently when paired with faulty logic and an inability to master the art of percentages, the use of this unscientific poll is perfectly acceptable in an argument.
PS- Thank you to everyone for all the quotes and discussion. To have that many comments is amazing. Joey, I know you are reading this and it is killing you that I had more comments on one post then you have had in the past month. The word is finally getting out about your BS.
