For whom the bell Tols - Josh 311

Richard Tol says that Bob Ward is 'engaged in a smear campaign' against him. Reading quite a bit of what Bob has written over the past few years, and not just about Richard but about many others, it is difficult not to agree.

H/t to Anthony Watts who came up with 'SpongeBob SmearPants'.

What a shame, to link Ward with the charming, simple, HONEST original...

'tis funny, though!

It's another cracker.

With these group think episodes, there's a point when almost everyone knows that they got it wrong, but they don't want to come out and openly admit it.

Then there are the real idiots who still don't get it ... but they keep ranting and raving ... everyone, including people who are supposedly "on their side" get embarrassed. And you can feel the tension as they just wish they would keep quiet and stop rocking the boat.

And the big question is this ... will they manage to "keep quiet" and let people just forget about this huge embarrassment ... or will some idiot like Bob Ward go too far forcing his own side to have to come clean to tell him he's got it wrong and with the potential of bringing down the house of cards.

Harsh - but fair!

If Bob Ward says something is good, it is probably bad.

If Bob Ward says something is bad, it is probably good.

Is this why his wealthy sugar daddy financial supporter retains his services?

Very good Josh. Very good.

Beware the Ward
Whose word is marred,
As well the meme
Which doesn't rhyme.

the dirty patch in his underpants (it is in the back not visible) is called "paleo piezo electricity"

'...and shun the frumious Wardlyscratch'

Josh, I love the cartoon, but Bob Ward may take offence.

Bob is always portrayed with a benign happy smile in his own approved self publicity shots.

I am sure that he wouldn't find anything else to complain about.

You could give kids nightmares with Sponge Bob Smear Pants. Slimey, green and sponging up the green bucks. Shudder.

Tee, hee.

Brussels can breathe easy-

if Josh were Thomas Nast, Boss Tweed would still be holding court in New York's City Hall

Excellent work Josh. If ret_tard told me the sun was shining I would go outside to check for myself.
