No matter how much joy there is in one’s life – and these days, in my little corner of the world, there is a fair bit – one can always find room for more. I find this is especially true when it comes to that most radiant and perfect joy of all Earthly joys: Joy in the Misfortune of Others. Today, the New Republic looks at the latest tear-stained chapter in the sad, sad story of Pajamas Media. Let’s read it together, shall we?
Getting fired is never easy, but the brush-off that bloggers at the Pajamas Media Ad Network received this January was particularly callous. “I just received a Dear John form letter,” says Jeff Goldstein, a libertarian and mixed martial artist who writes on the blog Protein Wisdom.
Aaaaaanyway. All the bloggers who got fired thinks bossman Roger Simon sold out the Punk Rock Revolution, and Simon doesn’t care because he’s got Joe the Plumber, and it’s all BAAAWWWW and butthurt because everyone was supposed to get filthy rich Photoshopping dicks on Obama’s face or whatever because everybody knows the internet turns retarded into gold. I’d pay actual money to see them all Ultimate Fight about it, but I suspect all we’ll get is continued bitching about the ever-expanding pool of enemies denying them their Constitutional right to earn a living doing jack shit.

He’s gonna be rich. Rich I tell ya.
